New Branch Manager Shannon Bender Joins Tarbell’s Temecula Office

 Bender, Shannon- Welcome

Shannon Bender Leading Tarbell’s Temecula Office

Tarbell, Realtors’ Senior Leadership Team recently announced that new Manager Shannon Bender has taken the reins in the Temecula office. Joe McGowan introduced Shannon to her Tarbell colleagues as a local real estate veteran with years of experience in the Temecula Valley.  “Shannon is a wonderful addition to our Tarbell Family of Realtors,” he said.  “She’s an experienced manager and mentor who will help our agents maximize their success at every stage of their careers.  Her focus is on making sure her agents have everything they need to serve their clients and our communities.”

Shannon moved to the Temecula Valley in 1988. “The housing market in the region was booming,” she recalled.  “Since then I’ve seen this valley grow by leaps and bounds.”  She first entered the real estate business in 2003.  “Real estate seemed like a natural fit for me,” she said.  “I had real estate in my family, with my grandmother being the broker/owner of a very successful brokerage.  When I needed to change my schedule to be home more with my growing family, I got my license and she became my mentor.”

Managing, Mentoring, Building Trust

As an agent, Shannon earned her clients’ trust by treating them with respect and genuine caring. When she moved into management, her goals remained close to her personal values: generously share her time and attention and treat all agents with respect.  She said, “I train each agent I mentor to know the most up-to-date information and technology in the current market.  They learn how to be professionals in their careers and negotiate a potentially stressful process with ease.  I have had the pleasure of mentoring over 100 agents throughout my career.

“In my approach to real estate,” she added, “the goal is to educate clients on the real estate process and facilitate and expertly negotiate the real estate transaction with knowledge, skill, and integrity. It’s important that clients can make informed investment decisions based on the information that we provide them.  This sets the stage for a smooth, positive, and low-stress real estate transaction for all parties.”

An attitude of gratitude guides Shannon’s point of view. “I have been blessed with working with some of the most amazing people throughout my career, and I am very thankful for the repeat business and referrals that have been such an important part of my success.”

Shannon and her husband currently reside in Menifee. In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with family and friends, gardening, and visiting Temecula’s wine country and California’s beautiful beaches.

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.

Contact The Kennedy Team   The Kennedy’s listings and open houses can be seen advertised weekly. For more information about real estate across the Coachella Valley, contact The Kennedy Team at (760) 424-6214, email them at thekennedyteam@tarbell.com or visit their website at www.thekennedyteam.net.

Korin Ekizian Fits in at Tarbell’s Anaheim Hills Office

Ekizian, Korin - welcome

Introducing Korin Ekizian to Tarbell Anaheim Hills

Tarbell, Realtors is proud to announce that Korin Ekizian has joined the Tarbell Family of Realtors. Anaheim Hills Branch Manager Sandy Garcia-Ekizian is Korin’s mother.  “I was thrilled when Korin decided to get her real estate license,” Sandy said.  “To be a success in this industry takes a very positive person who isn’t afraid to work hard.  I know that Korin has those attributes and that she will be a wonderful asset to Tarbell and the Anaheim Hills team.”

Korin graduated from the University of San Diego with a Bachelor’s degree in business administration. Prior to launching her real estate career, she was the manager of a retail boutique in Tustin, which she co-owns with her mother and sister.

Korin said she joined the Anaheim Hills team in large part because she knows how well she works with her mother. “I thought it would be a great benefit for my clients if I worked with my mom.  She’s an amazing mentor who has a way of inspiring everyone around her to be at their very best.  I know that with her guidance, I will be the kind of real estate professional people come back to again and again.”

Clients Enjoy Family-Style Service

Since she has already been involved in a family-owned business, Korin was particularly interested in being a Tarbell agent. She said, “There is a certain joy that comes from being part of a family-owned business.  You take great pride in serving your clients, as if they were family too.”

Her slogan, “Happy Home Happy Health,” reflects her belief that environment, attitude, and health all go hand in hand. “Everyone should have a place to call home.  Having a career in real estate affords me the opportunity to be a part of the important decisions that can make that dream come true.”

In describing the importance of providing superior customer service, Korin quotes American entrepreneur Marshall Field: “Goodwill is the one and only asset that competition cannot undersell or destroy.”

Korin has a passion for fitness and has competed in two bodybuilding shows. She also enjoys working with the elderly, and spends time at senior centers that serve people with Alzheimer’s.  “The guests have such amazing stories to tell,” she said, “and I always enjoy listening.”
