Hector Castañeda Brings Renewed Energy to Tarbell, Realtors’ Management Team

Castaneda, Hector 2018Tarbell, Realtors is proud to announce the appointment of a new branch manager in its Corona South office. Hector Castañeda is a 20-year veteran of the real estate industry with experience in management, operations, training, sales, and marketing.

“I’m so excited to introduce Hector as the newest member of the Tarbell management team,” said Ron Tarbell. “His skills and experience are a perfect fit for our Corona branch.”  He added that Hector’s strengths are built on a foundation of energy, integrity, and candor.  “Hector is fully committed to supporting our agents, our clients, and our communities.  We are very happy with the drive and momentum that he brings to promoting the success of his team, the welfare of the community, and the Tarbell name.  I especially appreciate his honesty and straightforward nature.”

A graduate of New Mexico University, Las Cruces, Hector launched his real estate career at Tarbell’s Upland office in 1997. He was consistently a top-producing agent, putting the lessons of his Tarbell Quick Start training to good use.  His mentor in those early days was Bill Velto, now the manager of the Upland location.  Hector rose through the ranks of the real estate community, mastering new challenges and taking on new responsibilities at each of the companies lucky enough to bring him on board.  His resume includes positions as sales agent, associate broker, branch manager, and regional manager, not to mention a stint as the radio personality “HectortheHomefinder.”  His experiences run the gamut of real estate sales, plus marketing, recruiting, agent training and education, and mentoring and motivating his staff.

“It’s incredibly exciting to return to my Tarbell roots and put my experience to work for the company that helped me get my career started,” Hector said. “Success in real estate comes from building trust and long-term relationships.  Clients and colleagues can count on me for frankness, accurate information, and timely communication.”

Hector, who is fluent in English and Spanish, has been an Upland City Council candidate, served on the City Council Advisory Committee for the City of Upland, and volunteered with Big Brothers of Greater Los Angeles. He and his wife Debra have successfully raised three sons and a daughter, with just one teenager still at home.

Ramirez, Elena - CopyElena Ramirez on the Preferred Properties Team

The Preferred Properties Division of Tarbell, Realtors has a new member in the Desert region. “Elena Ramirez is very dedicated and will work tirelessly to meet her clients’ needs,” said La Quinta Branch Manager Gina Martlaro Tegland.  “I’m so glad to have her on our team.”

Elena is currently representing her first home for Preferred Properties. The Estates Collection listing encompasses nearly nine acres in Indio and features a generously proportioned home, a private pond, pool and spa, a guest house, and exceptional equestrian facilities.  Its proximity to major equestrian events, such as the HITS Horse Show that runs from January through March, makes it the ideal location for equestrian enthusiasts.  Known as Sweet Spot Ranch, 80620 Avenue 40 is an extraordinary equestrian estate listed at $4,250,000.

Elena’s slogan, “Make it Right the First Time,” reflects her commitment to provide her clients with quality service above and beyond their expectations. She noted, “Whether they are buying an entry-level condo or selling a multi-million dollar estate, my clients can count on me to work hard on their behalf.”  She also assists clients with properties for lease.  She added, “Every property has its charm.  My job is to match the home with the right client.”

When Elena decided to launch her real estate career, she knew she wanted superior training and a strong support team to make sure she got off to a great start. She joined the Tarbell Family of Realtors in 2015.  “Tarbell offers everything I need to help my customers reach their goals,” she said, “I found the training I was looking for and a company with a 90-year history of integrity, service, and success.”

Elena honed her customer service skills as a business owner with more than 27 years in the restaurant industry.   She sold the business to be closer to family, and now lives in Indio where she enjoys gardening and cooking for her loved ones.

Focused on the Client: Shawn Anderson Joins Tarbell, Realtors

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAIntroducing Shawn Anderson 

Tarbell, Realtors is pleased to announce that Shawn Anderson has joined the Tarbell Family of Realtors at the La Quinta office. Branch Manager Gina Martlaro Tegland recently welcomed him to her Desert team.  “Shawn is so good with people and has the ability to zero in on exactly what a client needs,” she said.  “He will move mountains to get the job done.  This ‘can do’ attitude is why he is creating raving fans out of his clients.  I am so proud to have him on our team.”

In launching his new career, Shawn knew that the most important criteria were getting the best training and working with the best people. Tarbell’s reputation for excellence brought him in, and observing the team in the La Quinta office sealed the deal. “When I met the La Quinta agents I decided that this is where I want to be and these are the people I want to work with.  The company culture is that clients become part of the family.”

Genuine, Caring, Focused on Service

A union dockworker for 30 years, Shawn knows the meaning of getting the job done. His hard work and perseverance make him an ideal agent. “The thing I enjoy most about real estate is the people aspect,” he said. “I measure success in terms of helping others. The customer is why we are in business, and if I can help a client fulfill the American dream of homeownership, that to me is the goal. Not in terms of what it means for me, but for what it means to the people who get to add the key to their own home to their key ring.”

Shawn, who grew up in Riverside, moved to the Desert in 2011 and currently resides in Palm Desert. His family’s background is in real estate and he is familiar with properties ranging from entry-level homes to luxury estates. He enjoys gardening, football, and baseball.
