About Jody...

It was one of those perfect Puerto Vallarta evenings, when the rolling waves on the beach can best be heard under the lively strains of Mariachi music. Jody Velto and her husband Bill Velto were at El Set with friends from home, savoring the restaurant’s sumptuous lobster tacos. The foursome began singing along to the vibrant vocals and spirited strumming of local guitarist and singer Julio de Rivera, who grinned broadly at their cheerful enthusiasm.

The two couples were so caught up in the energy of that moment that at first they didn’t notice the smiling man who approached their table. “Excuse me,” he said, “but you folks look like you’re having a terrific time. Would you mind if my wife and I join you?” Jody and Bill laughed and quickly made room. The newcomers, fellow vacationing Californians, were warmly welcomed—and it wasn’t long before two strangers became two new friends.

For Jody and Bill, that incident isn’t an isolated one. They’re often approached by others eager to share in their infectious merriment. The strong and loyal connection between this married couple, best friends and business partners just seems to draw people to them. “We never let anything get between our relationship,” says Jody, and Bill agrees: “nothing is worth sacrificing our marriage.” This philosophy has helped Jody and Bill forge many solid bonds, and it’s the foundation of their personal and professional success.

While Jody grew up in Ohio, Bill grew up in Upland. Their many shared values have only cemented their bond. Both are deeply committed to family and community. They raised their children here, and over the years they’ve been active in local schools and coached soccer and baseball. For Jody and Bill, it’s always been very important to give back, a value reflected in the career paths each chose.

Jody spent many years in the insurance industry, advising clients on coverage for their homes and autos. “I learned how to read people so I could better meet their needs,” she says. Over the years, Jody developed impeccable records in customer service and created many lasting relationships with the people they helped.

Jody has received numerous awards for her performance at Tarbell, Realtors. She has been awarded the Silver, Gold, Diamond, Platinum and Presidents Circles of Excellence for her sales activity. Jody was ranked in the Top 10 agents for the entire company in 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016. Jody is also the Top Individual Sales Associate for Production at Tarbell, Realtors in Upland and has been for the past 7 years.
