Bulletin, Progressive, Record, Reporter Wednesday, March 17, 2010 5B Real estate company su(:q:essful through hard times BUSINESS PRUDENTIAL LAKE ALMANOR REAL ESTATE M. Kate West Chester Editor "While the economy in gen- eral offers a bit of a challenge, we have been fortunate. We have sold enough property and worked with enough buy- ers and sellers to keep things moving," said Prudential Lake Almanor Real Estate broker-owner Wendi Durkin. She attributed the continu- ing success of the firm to an overall team effort. "It stems from the people working here. I think we have the best agents in the Basin working together," she added. She said" another factor to that success is knowledge and love of the area. "We each have the technical ability, but most of all we have a love of the area. You just don't do as well if you don't believe in what you're selling," she said. Looking back She said the business was originally named Bailey Creek Properties because of the family's development business. "We built at the Clifford Drive location about four years ago to put a footprint in the Basin, and we made the decision to go with a national name to solidify that foot- print," she said. "Because our name was Bailey Creek, people thought that was our market base. We sell properties throughout Plumas County; by changing our name we could help peo- ple to understand we could help them buy or sell property in Westwood or anywhere else," Durkin said. She said Prudential, in ad- dition to selling anything from vacant land to lakefront, golf course or commercial, al- so specializes in property management. "We handle rentals and help introduce people to the community. We are easily recognized by our golfer out front," she said. Looking forward Durkin said Prudential would continue marketing ef- forts to bring people to Lake Almanor. "We want to help people learn to love Lake Almanor. It's a place where people want to come back to and enjoy," she said. She also spoke about the many people who originally traveled here with their par- ents. "These are friends who become clients -- we hope they come back and bring Wendi Durkin is the broker-owner of Prudential Lake Almanor Real Estate, on Clifford Drive, just before the entrance to Bailey Creek Golf Course.

The sightings follow wolverine sightings in 2008 and 2009 in the same general area. Markings on the furbearer indicate it is likely the same animal. From the previous sightings, DNA extracted from hair samples collected at photo stations by Dr. Michael Schwartz at the U.S. Forest Service's Rocky Mountain Research Station concluded the wolverine is not a descendent of the last known southern Sierra Nevada population. Based on analysis of its DNA, it most closely resembles genetic types found throughout the northern Rocky Mountains. The wolverine detections were made using movement-operated cameras as part of SPI's ongoing comprehensive wildlife monitoring program. The sightings occurred on the company's forestlands in early January northwest of Truckee. These lands have been privately owned since the 1860s and have produced forest products since the 1930s. The most recent harvest in the area occurred in 2008. For a video of the sighting, visit Photo submitted FRF00 I00ONI00ERT MARCH 27, 2010 AT 2:00 P.M.
