After eighteen years in education with the Mountain Brook School System, former Cherokee Bend Principal Betsy Bell has retired to launch an encore career in real estate with ARC Realty. “Having spent time listening and counseling families about what community and school system to call home, I realize I’ve already been in the real estate business,” says Betsy. Her own experiences moving throughout the U.S. taught her how to make people feel welcomed. “It can be overwhelming when you don’t know anyone or where to grocery shop. As a Realtor, I can be a counselor and first friend.”
Betsy’s love of real estate—especially houses—started at an early age. One parallel between her career in education and real estate is looking beyond the obvious to see potential. “In education, seeing potential in every child is critical,” says Betsy. “I’ve always enjoyed doing that with houses, too. Now I get to match a family’s needs with a new home environment that impacts their lives every day, just like a great school.”
In choosing a real estate partner to best serve her clients, Betsy looked for cutting-edge technology, strategic marketing and social media. Innovative leadership and a collaborative culture helped her decide to make ARC Realty her professional home. “I love that ARC stands for ‘a relationship company,’” says Betsy. “In education and now in real estate, nothing is more important than the relationships we nurture every day.”
