Owners / Listing Specialists: Rhonda Bell & Trey Bell
Rhonda Bell has worked with clients since 2004, finding each opportunity to work with a new or returning client, a privilege. By aiming to deliver the best customer service by always keeping the clients’ interests first, Rhonda has grown The Bell Team to become the Keller Williams Lanier Partners Top Producer of 2015.
For the past 39 years, Rhonda and husband Ron, owner of Bell Construction, have lived in the South Hall County community. Having always resided within a 20 mile radius of her birthplace Gainesville, GA, Rhonda has made a business of knowing the market around her and building relationships and trust with those she works for.
Rhonda and Ron enjoy family time with their six children, five grandsons, and their first granddaughter born just a few months ago. Between hiking on nearby trails and volunteering when she can, Rhonda finds relaxation in the time spent with friends and family in natural surroundings and when worshipping at 12 Stone Church. And just maybe, you can catch a glimpse of her riding a Harley across the Georgia line, expanding on her six states traveled with dreams of a cross-country journey.
"I can’t say enough wonderful things about The Bell Team! We just closed on the sale of our home and it was practically seamless thanks to Rhonda. As first-time sellers, we truly appreciated the time taken to explain everything and keeping us informed. Rhonda fought for us and we were more than pleased with the outcome. We are working with Lauren to buy our next home and she has guided and supported us throughout many hurdles. This team really cares about clients. It’s no wonder this team is SO highly recommended. Don’t wait-just call!" ~ Becca T.
With a background that spans construction and commercial real estate, Trey Bell joined The Bell Team in 2014 to work alongside commercial and residential clients alike. Since then he has provided clients his knowledge of the market and negotiation tactics to give them the highest return on their real estate investments in the shortest amount of time possible. His dedication and hard work have noticeably elevated The Bell Team to new heights amongst peers and clients.
Between Trey’s experience with his family construction business and the community relationships he has built having lived here his whole life, he is able to help clients find the necessary services needed to prepare homes for sale and resolve any issues that arise throughout the life of a home’s contract. These relationships with the people and families of the area are also what lead him to believe that this is a great community to live, work and do life in.
Living in Chestnut Mountain with his wife Abbie, Trey finds that North Georgia has diverse offerings to meet the interests of all of its residents, including some of his own personal interests: golfing at Royal Lakes and boating on Lake Lanier. Occasionally, he also enjoys his other passion of traveling, both inside the borders of Georgia and beyond. They've recently welcome their first baby girl into the world, and are just thrilled to be new parents.
"The Bell Team came through! We could not be happier with the service provided by Trey and the team. They were professional and very knowledgeable of the current market and led us in the right direction to get our property sold. If you are looking to buy or sell I highly recommend giving The Bell Team a call!" ~ Michael H.
