Shawn O’Brion Found Out Why Tarbell is the Right Choice

Shawn O'Brion

Shawn O’Brion

Shawn O’Brion recently joined Tarbell, REALTORS’ Tustin/Santa Ana office. “Shawn is a wonderful addition!” said Branch Manager Clara Eisenman.  “He is genuinely upbeat and always ready to roll up his sleeves to get to work, qualities every good Realtor needs.”

Shawn initially joined an international brokerage after earning his real estate license, but quickly realized it offered very little in the way of training and support. Then he did his homework.  He said, “After researching the brokerages with the best reputation, level of experience, training and sales, Tarbell was the obvious choice.  They have given me all the tools I need to be successful.”

Focused on customer service, Shawn believes the keys to exceeding clients’ expectations are consistent communication and following through on every detail. “I let my clients know that I will do all the work so they can have peace of mind,” he said.  “I serve all of Southern California with an emphasis on buyers and sellers in Orange County.  I speak decent Spanish and work closely with a colleague, Mindy Le, who speaks Vietnamese.  We can handle anything that comes our way!”

Real estate feels like a natural fit to Shawn. He noted, “My dad was a general contractor in south Florida for 30 years, and I used to love helping him build homes- learning all about materials and construction methods, layouts and design, values, etc.  We worked on projects like Turnberry Isle Country Club, SouthEast Financial Center, and luxury homes on Star Island and Bal Harbor.  But I found Florida too humid, so I went into hospitality and social work, keeping me indoors.  After losing my dad last year to cancer, I relocated back to sunny California with its perfect weather.  I knew I needed to combine the things I love- being hospitable, helping people, and helping people find their dream homes. I love being a Realtor!”

Dedicated, Honest Realtor: Lake Elsinore Tarbell Welcomes Vernica Clark

Vernica Clark

Vernica Clark

The Lake Elsinore office of Tarbell, REALTORS is proud to announce the addition of newcomer Vernica Clark. Branch Manager Carol Rounsley said, “Vernica is a go-getter!  I love her positive energy.  I’d like to thank our team member Cynthia Navarro for bringing Vernica on board.   A Tarbell agent recommending the company to a friend is the best evidence that this is a wonderful place to work.  It tells me we are doing things the right way.”

“I was familiar with the Tarbell name and its great reputation,” Vernica said, “and when Cynthia Navarro told me she was a Tarbell agent, I was excited to work with her again. She worked with me at the school I attended and we’ve been friends for years.  She introduced me to Carol and her staff- everyone has been very welcoming!”

Cynthia Navarro said, “Vernica has great people skills. She’s a good listener, which is really important in real estate. I’m so glad she chose Tarbell!”

Vernica’s slogan, “Dedicated, Honest Realtor- Love What I Do Can for You,” reflects her commitment to making sure her clients enjoy her efforts as much as she does. “Buying or selling a home can be a very satisfying and exciting experience.  I want my clients to have total confidence in my services and know that they are going to love the results!”

Having grown up in the Riverside/Moreno Valley area, Vernica is very familiar with the local neighborhoods and amenities. “I’m focused primarily on these communities,” she said, “but I will serve clients wherever they need me.”

Leadership comes naturally to Vernica, a former teacher. “I think my background in teaching is a big bonus for my clients, because so much of real estate involves sharing the all information that will help a client make the best decision.  Running a classroom of diverse students taught me to communicate with people of all backgrounds.”  Vernica has a Bachelor’s degree in liberal studies.

Tarbell’s Rising Stars Forum Earns Accolades

20170721_100759Tarbell, Realtors, California’s largest family-owned independent brokerage, recently held another of its industry-unique Rising Star forums. Tarbell’s Rising Stars are a group of agents who come together to exchange ideas, network, and share methods for achieving their goals of earning membership in the broker’s Circle of Excellence sales club. Tina Jimov-Red, President of Tarbell, Realtors hosted the program.  A panel of successful agents spoke to the group,  including Jennifer Wentz from Tarbell’s Menifee office, Jody Mathews from the Temecula office, Myra Mitchell from the Ontario/Eastvale office, Coleen Wessell from the Redlands office, Bernardine Leutz from the Riverside office, and Loren Avellaneda and Ray Richardson, from the Corona office.

“I want to thank everyone who help to make this event such a success. Great achievements and success are often the result of collaboration and education,” said Jimov-Red. “Rising Stars provides agents with an exceptional opportunity to increase their success by learning from one another as well as other successful agents, and the Tarbell Management team. I often quote Zig Ziglar; to his famous saying of “If you want to earn more, learn more, I add you must serve more.”

A strong agent support network, she adds, is crucial to ensuring that real estate professionals are well-equipped to serve their clients.  “Education and training are always number one on our list,” Jimov-Red asserts.  “We value our agents and offer them the tools and learning opportunities necessary to continue to build their businesses.  They see that they are important to us, and that gives them a tremendous sense of confidence, an optimistic attitude, and a positive outlook.”

Agents in attendance had great things to say about the event:

“First, I want to start by thanking you for the opportunity to speak in front of the new RISING STARS of Tarbell, Realtors!  It was a great experience, a chance to share some (a small part my experience in real estate) of my trade secrets.  The willingness of all that were in attendance to share and exchange what we do to stand out from the ordinary realtor!

The experience was truly a fulfilling experience . . . other top agents freely exchanging and sharing of ideas.  We all have something of value to share:  Marketing to sphere; how to approach expired that makes us stand out from the rest; reaching out to community; working your farms; whatever their niche. I was able to pick up many new and exciting ideas!”  Bernadine Leutz, Riverside Office

“This workshop was just what I needed to get me on track to achieving my goals.” Kim Teece, Temecula Office.

“As a new agent, I am always impressed with the amount of training and special events offered by Tarbell. One such event that was truly inspiring was Rising Stars. The panel of star-studded real estate professionals provided extremely helpful insight in improving the skills of any agent, at any level. I found the practical applications of various marketing activities so helpful that I began using some of them the following day. The event was topped off by the energy and motivation of Tarbell’s president, Tina Jimov-Red. I enjoyed the tools, strategies, and business acumen she provided to become a successful agent.  It was definitely a pleasure to attend Rising Stars; I’m looking forward to the next event.”  Todd Beal, Corona Office.

“I have always found the Rising Stars events to be inspiring and uplifting.  They motivate me to continue to strive harder and to think outside the box when it comes to creating new leads that will later become sales. I appreciate all of our speakers for sharing the methods that have worked best for them and for always thinking of new creative ways to generate business.”  Cynthia Gordon, Riverside Office.

“I know I picked the right brokerage after attending this event! The panel shared so much advice and the energy in the room was electric.” Courtney Lypps, Temecula Office.

20170721_100854Long been touted as the leader in real estate training, Tarbell, Realtors provides the industry’s most comprehensive training systems to its agents. From the company’s licensing school, to its Quick Start Academy of Real Estate, to its Post-Quick Start Training, monthly Success Seminars, Computer Training School, its Mentor and Coaching Programs, to its Rising Star and Masterminds Networking Group Meetings, Tarbell agents are provided crucial training at every level of their career.

A cohesive management/leadership team, notes Jimov-Red, is the foundation of Tarbell’s winning business philosophy.  “Our managers are, I believe, the best in the industry,” she says.  “They are totally committed and dedicated to our agents, the communities we serve, and our home buying and selling clients.”

Tarbell, Realtors offers its agents an impressive portfolio of products and services including live and online training, paperless, digital transaction options, an agent-branded app, and an in-house Marketing department that handles all printed materials, comprehensive advertising and marketing campaigns, and specialized departments including Preferred Properties, Tarbell’s luxury homes & estates division.
