Tarbell, 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.
