Desert Specialists: The Kennedy Team’s Ongoing Success Story

Kennedy Team - Platinum

Desert Specialists Honored by Tarbell

Tarbell, Realtors congratulates The Kennedy Team on their continuing success. The team, consisting of Ralph and Elynn Kennedy and Araceli Vazquez, was honored once again this year at the company’s 2018 Excellence Awards as members of the Platinum Circle of the Circle of Excellence Sales Club. The Kennedy Team has a long history of success with Tarbell.

“Agents in the Platinum Circle have moved the bar a notch higher, and reached an elite level of expertise and success,” said CEO Ron Tarbell. “The Kenney Team inspires everyone around them.  I’m proud to call them members of the Tarbell Family of Realtors!”

Ralph and Elynn joined Tarbell, Realtors in 2006. “I had the privilege of getting to know the Kennedys when they first entered real estate with Tarbell,” says Gina Martlaro Tegland, manager of the La Quinta office, “and I don’t think they have any limits! Ralph and Elynn and Araceli have unbelievable focus and determination plus a huge dose of wanting to help people.  It is no wonder they have such devoted customers.”

The Kennedy Team continually strives to grow and improve service to their buyers and sellers. They are certified e-Pro agents, and have mastered the art and science of using technology to enhance their availability, customer service, and ability to access data and provide up-to-the-minute information.

Serving the Desert Region

As Desert area experts, the Kennedy Team serves a wide range of clients, from first-time buyers to veteran investors, with special emphasis on representing clients buying and selling homes in gated communities for active seniors. They are members of Preferred Properties, Tarbell’s division for luxury homes and estates, and they offer specialized relocation services for customers new to the Coachella Valley.  Their slogan, “Your New Best Friends,” reflects their belief that caring, personal service is the foundation of their success.  By building lasting relationships, they earn their clients’ respect and confidence, essential for continuing growth.  They make sure their clients are always the top priority- listening to their needs, maintaining communication at all phases of the transaction, ensuring everything runs smoothly through escrow, and staying in touch with them once the transaction is completed.

The team’s client base has expanded to include Canada, Elynn’s homeland.  They are introducing their north-of-the-border clients to the warm climate and relaxed lifestyle for which the California Desert communities are famous.  “Elynn and Ralph,” writes client J. L. de Groot of Calgary, “showed us exactly what we were looking for and what we could afford.  At no time did they ask us to consider something less than what we wanted.  It was my utmost pleasure in having Elynn and Ralph look after our interests, as they kept our opinions in the forefront and worked for us 100% of the time.  We have met our new BEST FRIENDS in Palm Desert.”

Araceli started with Tarbell in 2003, joined the Kennedys in 2009, and became a partner in 2013.  She has lived in the desert area for eighteen years.  Ralph, a native of Long Island, New York, moved to California in 1960. He has one daughter.  Elynn was born and raised in Calgary, Alberta.  She has seven children, seven grandchildren, and four great-grandchildren.
