Overman, Jeff -Chairmans

2018 Circle of Excellence Honors

Tarbell, Realtors congratulates Jeff Overman of the Oasis Country Club office for his outstanding 2018 sales record. A recipient of Tarbell’s exclusive Chairman’s Circle of Excellence, Jeff has been a valued member of the Tarbell Family of Realtors since 2005. He has been a success from the very beginning, earning Circle of Excellence recognition every year.

After a lengthy career in sales and management for a large, Seattle-based company, Jeff brought his considerable skills and energy to the real estate industry. He chose to start his real estate career with Tarbell, Realtors because of the quality of the professional training and the consistent support from management.  He says, “I love that Tarbell is not a franchise, but a family-owned business with more than 90 years of service.”

Jeff is a Desert specialist, serving clients throughout the Coachella Valley, with particular emphasis on the resort-like Oasis Country Club—Jeff is superbly positioned to assist clients with the sale or purchase of properties in the gated community. His hard work, commitment to customer service, and unparalleled market knowledge give customers a tremendous advantage.  He partners with Rae Crogan, Mike D. Kays, and Karen Muth, providing services under the team name “Overman, Crogan & Kays @ Desert Homes.”  Together, they rank as Tarbell’s top team in the Desert region.  Their slogan, “Others Promise… We Deliver!” is a reflection of the persistence, hard work, and dedication to client satisfaction that drives their success.

Exceeding Expectations

Clients are “Sold on Jeff” because he makes real estate transactions painless. Always determined to exceed expectations, Jeff says he focuses on listening to what the client wants.  “It’s important for my clients to know I’m paying attention,” he says.  “I want them to feel as though they are my only client.  I’m available when they need me, I don’t let phone calls interrupt their time, and I negotiate aggressively on their behalf.”  His friendly, helpful demeanor and professional expertise contribute to a thriving referral business, evidence of his clients’ total confidence and satisfaction.

A native of Antioch, California, Jeff was raised in Tacoma, Washington. He graduated from Central Washington University in 1978 with a BA in finance.  He reports that he has “three grown children and a wonderful wife.”  Jeff lives in the Oasis Country Club and enjoys golf and hiking, reading and volunteering, and studying and investing in the stock market.

Tarbell, Realtors Brings a New Member on Board in San Clemente

El-radi, Mirah - Welcome

Mirah El-radi Joins the Tarbell Family of Realtors

Tarbell, Realtors recently introduced Mirah El-radi, a new team member serving the South Orange County area. Branch Manager Brent Jorgensen recruited Mirah to join his team at the San Clemente office.  “Mirah is most energetic and like a breath of fresh air,” he said.  “She already very savvy technically, and she remains very teachable and willing to learn.  She brings that quality to our office every day.”

“First and foremost, Brent Jorgensen’s attitude in the greatest!” Mirah said. “Once I got my license and was deciding on a brokerage, he explained the process of joining the Tarbell team thoroughly, and he was so easy to communicate with!  Tarbell is very family-oriented, which is important to me, and I really appreciate the level of community involvement.  Right now, the ‘Scare Away Hunger’ food drive is in full swing.  I love being part of it.”

A Positive and Personalized Experience

Mirah has a BA in sociology. She commented that she is excited that real estate offers her the opportunity to meet people and learn their stories.  “Customers deserve a positive and personalized experience,” she said.  “It’s important to put yourself in their shoes to understand their wants and needs.”

She added, “Another exciting thing about real estate is the chance to learn something new and useful every day. This is not a career for someone who wants to do the same old thing all the time.  Real estate challenges me to keep developing new skills.”  Prior to launching her real estate career, Mirah served the community as assistant director of an elementary after-school program through the YMCA, where she honed her listening skills and her patient demeanor.

Honesty and Respect

Priscilla makes customers her top priority, and treats everyone with respect.

Starting with her extensive network of family and friends, Priscilla’s customer base comes primarily out of her lifetime of activities within the La Purisima Parish Community, Orange Rosary Group, and the Federation of Filipino Rosary Group of Orange County. She has volunteered for a variety of charities and church events.  “I have been married for over 40 years,” she said, “and I have a daughter, Melrose, who is a registered nurse.”  Priscilla likes to cook, exercise, read inspirational books, and play with her mini-dachshund, Margaret.
