Platinum Circle for Michael Chaffey
Tarbell, Realtors is proud to recognize the exceptional achievements of Michael Chaffey, the number one individual agent from the Menifee office. A consistent Top Producer and a member of the prestigious Platinum Circle of the Circle of Excellence sales club, Chaffey is a respected real estate professional, an outstanding role model for new agents, and an extremely nice person.
At the 2018 Tarbell Excellence Awards held earlier this year, Ron Tarbell noted that Michael is a member of an elite group. “Agents in the Platinum Circle have moved the bar a notch higher,” he said, “and reached a level of expertise and success that inspires everyone around them. Michael’s results are remarkable.”
“Mike exceeds my expectations year after year,” says Cathi Rainier, manager of the Menifee branch. “I count on his professionalism and ability to adapt to the ever-changing real estate market; it’s one of the things that keeps him among the best in the business. More than anything else, I appreciate what a great team member he is.”
Born in England, Chaffey honed his customer service skills during a lengthy career in the cruise ship industry. He joined Tarbell, Realtors in 1999, and took advantage of the Quick Start program, promptly proving his aptitude for real estate by winning the New Champions award in his first year. That early promise has been more than fulfilled in the ensuing years. He says, “Tarbell, Realtors makes it easy to succeed, with professional education, strong market presence, and total dedication to agent support. I love the Preferred Property program- it is a winner!”
Serving Clients Across Southern California
Chaffey is an Inland Empire specialist serving buyers and sellers across the region. He also has an extensive customer base exposing him to all areas of Southern California and often works with repeat, referred, and relocation clients. Recent listings include homes in Canyon Lake, Menifee, Lake Elsinore, Murrieta, Temecula, Corona, and Hemet in the IE, Escondido and Oceanside in San Diego County, and Dana Point and San Clemente in Orange County. “I go where they need me,” he says.
Living and working in the guard-gated community of Canyon Lake (“A Little Bit of Paradise”), he appreciates the lake and beaches, clubhouse and pool, parks and sport courts, and the equestrian center, plus all the activities such as waterskiing, fishing, tennis and golf. “My wife Susan and I came to Canyon Lake in 1980,” he notes, “and realized you can live a vacation lifestyle every day.”
Exceptional customer service, in-depth market knowledge, and a strong work ethic all play a role in Chaffey’s success. His motto, “Working twice as hard,” embodies his total commitment to his clients. “Walk in the shoes of your client,” says Chaffey. “Have answers and solutions before they ask.” Clients love the results he produces, particularly the personalized service and unfailing integrity and professionalism. “Service is different to each client- recognizing and meeting clients’ needs is my top priority.”
