Tarbell’s Karen Cheng Honored as Humanitarian of the Year

Cheng, KarenCongratulations to Karen Cheng of Tarbell, Realtors’ Riverside office! The Asian Pacific Cultural Association named Karen the 2017 Humanitarian of the Year for “her tireless efforts within our community and around the world.”

“The Tarbell Family of Realtors is incredibly proud to congratulate Karen Cheng on this honor,” said Tina Jimov-Red, president of Tarbell, Realtors. “She consistently demonstrates the highest standards of professionalism and integrity.”

A longtime member of the Tarbell’s Circle of Excellence, Karen is counted among the associates of the elite President’s Circle, ranking among Tarbell’s finest real estate professionals.   Riverside Branch Manager Laura Lewin said, “I’ve worked with Karen for over ten years.  She’s hardworking and dedicated to serving the community.  All her clients are happy and love working with her.  She’s my top agent!”

Karen started her real estate career with Tarbell in 2006 because of the outstanding training. “The full, in-house training can help a new agent learn fast,” she said, “and the mentoring, marketing, and legal support are great.  I like to take advantage of the Preferred Properties Division for marketing luxury homes.”

The keys to Karen’s success are honesty, strong communication, problem solving, listening, and friendship. Her slogan, “Always and Only with Your Best Interest at Heart,” reflects her genuine desire to help.  She tells her clients, “I am not successful until you are successful.  I am not satisfied until you are satisfied.”  Her attitude resonates with clients and colleagues, who respect her honesty, hard work, and real estate knowledge.  “It means a lot to me if a client says they appreciate my professionalism and my attitude,” Karen said.  “And when a client tells me they trust me, I know I’m doing my job.”

Karen is a certified property management expert and has held informative seminars for landlords. Because she is fluent in Chinese, she is an invaluable resource for buyers from China and the Chinese-speaking community in the Inland Empire.  She works with buyers and sellers in residential and commercial transactions and is particularly good at helping investors identify the right property to suit their needs.

Before embarking on her real estate career, Karen worked as a registered nurse and, at one time, was principal of the Riverside Chinese School.   She is president of the Inland Chinese-American Alliance.  As a hobby, she plays the piano for her church.  Karen’s husband, Dr. Roger Cheng, has an internal medicine practice in Riverside and Moreno Valley.  They have two grown sons.
