Downsize Your Home/Upsize Your Lifestyle

Downsizing (1)

Tarbell, Realtors is always ready to help their clients make the most of their real estate investments, and Tarbell team members across the Southland are prepared to work with clients at every stage of life.

“Agents often say how much they enjoy working with first-time buyers,” said Tarbell President Joe McGowan, “but they find it’s even more rewarding to work with clients at the other end of the journey.  Many of our clients are facing the changes and challenges of their retirement years, and we are committed to serving their particular needs.  When downsizing is the next step, our team can make sure the client finds it personally and financially liberating!”

McGowan says letting go of the burden of unused square footage has a positive impact on leisure time, stress, and the bottom line. “You’ve created wonderful memories in your family home, raised a family, and experienced a full life,” he mused.  “But the kids are grown now, you’ve retired, and you’re ready to embrace a lifestyle without the responsibilities and expenses of taking care of a large home.”

“It is simply easier and less expensive to maintain a smaller home.” 

McGowan pointed out a few of the advantages of downsizing.  “You’ll discover the pleasures of increased leisure time when you aren’t buried under a mountain of home maintenance chores.  Less effort cleaning and repairing equals more time with friends and family, more time for the things you love to do, and more time for taking care of yourself.”  He added, “When you stop paying to heat and air condition rooms you don’t use, you will notice immediate savings in energy consumption.  Imagine how much a smaller yard will save in water costs!”

There are tax benefits, too. Thanks to Propositions 60 and 90, California’s 55+ residents can file for protection from higher property taxes and may be able take their current tax rate with them when they downsize, warding off a dramatic change in their taxes and safeguarding the value of their investment.  Proposition 60 allows transfers of base year values within the same county.  Proposition 90 allows transfers from one California county to another.

McGowan said, “We can help clients sell their home and help them relocate to a home that suits their current needs. Our agents are professional, skillful, and knowledgeable and they are willing to go the extra mile to make sure their clients’ needs are satisfied beyond expectation.” The Tarbell Family of Realtors features agents diverse in heritage and culture, and speaking a wide range of languages.

When it’s time to discover the benefits of downsizing to a more manageable residence, contact the experts at Tarbell, Realtors. Go to TARBELL.COM or call 1-800-TAR-BELL for more information.  Tarbell team members provide outstanding real estate services from an extensive network of local offices, all with global reach and exposure.

Tarbell, Realtors Introduces Rachel Barnes

Rachel Barnes- Welcome

Someone New at Tarbell, Realtors!

Tarbell’s East Orange County Branch Manager Clara Eisenman says Rachel Barnes is a particularly exciting new agent. “Rachel is a dynamo!” Clara said.  “She has a strong grasp of what it takes to get the job done, and an amazing background in starting and managing her own successful businesses.  We are very pleased that she is bringing that energy and expertise to her real estate career.”

“I love the fact that Tarbell is a family business,” Rachel said. “I have started up, owned, and managed four family businesses, so I relate to the family business model.  The support and resources I need are already in place, and I appreciate Tarbell’s emphasis on teamwork.  I feel at home here!”  Rachel mentioned that her slogan, “Your One Stop Shop,” reflects the relationship Tarbell has with Hartford Escrow and Landwood Title.  “It is a huge benefit to work hand in hand with these companies, and to know that my customers and I can rely on their services.”

In addition to her experience as a business owner, CEO, and entrepreneur, Rachel’s résumé includes a great deal of personal experience in real estate investing, with as many as 18 transactions completed.

“Real estate is about the right attitude, building trusted relationships, and connecting with people.”

“Each client has their own story,” Rachel said. “What works for one client may not be right for another.  I’ve learned to listen carefully to their needs—I think it’s crucial to have consistent communication.  Whether that communication takes the form of phone calls, face-to-face meetings, emails, or texts, I will do whatever works best for my customer.”

As the multitude of social media platforms began to influence daily life, Rachel recognized the significance of social media as a marketing tool. She took college-level social media courses and built a substantial online presence, maximizing her ability to reach and grow her client base.  Her network encompasses people from Orange County to San Diego—in the community, her own neighborhood, and the sisterhood within her temple.  Since joining Tarbell, Rachel has created an event she calls “T@4” (Tea at 4 or Tarbell at 4).  She uses her Facebook page to invite her sphere to meet at a local café to discuss real estate matters.

Rachel was raised in South Africa and came to the United States in 1990 with her husband Samy and their three children. At one time she lived in Jerusalem, where she joined the U.S. Embassy as a Foreign Service National and served under a U.S. ambassador.  She was part of a humanitarian USAID convoy that assisted in various economic issues.   “Traveling has exposed me to many different cultures and experiences,” she said.  Wherever she goes, she builds relationships.

Rachel resides in Irvine, where her life revolves around faith, family, and work. She loves Zumba, painting, travel, scrapbooking, jewelry making, taking college courses, walking her dog, and chatting with neighbors.
