I am originally from quaint coastal towns in New England. When we came to Vero Beach over 25 years ago, my husband Scott and I knew this was where we wanted to settle. We have raised our four wonderful children, Jennifer, Sara, Scott and Allison, here in Vero Beach.
Throughout my career in real estate it has been important for me to continue to educate myself about the business and to acquire the appropriate credentials:
Certified Residential Specialist
Luxury Home Specialist
Accredited Buyers Representative
Senior Real Estate Specialist
My objective is to educate my clients about the market. Buyers eventually make informed decisions when choosing a luxury home. For my sellers, their high end homes necessitate an effective and comprehensive marketing plan which I create and implement for them.
We have such a wonderful lifestyle here. I love my golf and tennis, going to the gym, boating with the family, dining at local restaurants and being involved at church and in the community. What isn't to love about seeing an evening sunset from my back window or reading for an hour at the beach?
Specializing in luxury home market with concentration on the island.

To Whom It May Concern,
Early in 2008 my husband and I decided to sell our home in Riverside at the Island Club, in spite of a declining real estate market. A few friends recommended that we contact Debbie Bell for assistance, advising that "if anyone can sell a property in this market, Debbie can." We began collaborating with Debbie immediately, establishing a realistic asking price, and a marketing plan which included newspaper, MLS and internet exposure, and open houses. In fewer than 60 days, Debbie brought us a reasonable contract that we accepted without further negotiation. She provided us with frequent and helpful feedback following each house showing, and tended to every detail from the signing of the initial sales contract through the actual closing.
Debbie is also a skilled buyer's representative. She listened to our wants and needs and preferences for a new, larger home for our expanding family. When the time came to make an offer on our favorite property, Debbie far exceeded our expectations in the negotiation of a very attractive sales price. Again she tended to every detail of the sales- to-closing process.
We continue to be impressed with the level of friendly, professional service we received from Debbie and her support staff and are convinced that if a customer is serious about selling his or her property or finding just the right property to purchase, Debbie Bell is the go-to real estate agent in Vero Beach. She is the most honest, patient, ethical, and detail oriented realtor with whom we have worked, and we are proud to call her our friend, too.

We wanted to say thank you for all your hard work! You helped us find a home that was perfect for us in such a short period of time. You listened to our concerns and gave us excellent advice. Thank you for showing us all that Vero Beach had to offer. You are very knowledgeable and helped us select a great house. Thank you for everything! We appreciate it!
Andy and Ann
Debbie, I wanted to express my thanks for the fantastic job you did for
us, helping us purchase our home in Vero. Vicki and I started working
with you almost two years ago, with no clear definition of what we were
looking for. Your patience helped us hone our selection over time,
allowing us to finally focus on only the properties that fit our desires
and price range.
I'm sure there were times when we appeared to be only "looky-loo's".
However, you stayed with us, giving us space, while quickly and promptly
answering all of our questions and requests. You correctly assessed our
style and avoided a pressuring approach in dealing with us, which yielded
our loyalty to you as an agent.
When it came time to make the deal, you again showed your poise and
experience. Working together with you to forge a buying strategy, and,
with a lot of help from you, executing it to perfection allowed us to buy
the right property for us at the right price.
If that was not enough, after the contract was written, when many agents
disappear, you helped us in innumerable ways to find the right people and
businesses to take care of the things we needed, both before and after the
close. All of your recommendations have been reliable and useful.
Without hesitation I would recommend you to anyone who is seeking a
professional real estate agent to represent them as a buyer. As I have
mentioned above, you assessed our style, supported us in every way we
needed, and did so in a most pleasant, efficient and professional manner.
Thanks again for a great job. If you would like me to re-iterate this to
anyone in particular in the business, or to any prospective clients, I
would do so with the utmost pleasure.
Vicki and I wish you and your family the best during this holiday season,
as well as a joyous New Year. We look forward to seeing you in the spring
of 2008 as we begin to transform 1936 Anglers Cove from its present
condition into our home in Vero.
By the way, we are still considering the purchase of a lot in Vero, and
will discuss this with you further into the New Year.
Jeff Wilson and Vicki Drake
Professional, hardworking, caring. It was easy to see Debbie's incredible knowledge of Vero Beach, it's surroundings and the market, which made it possible for us to find our dream home in no time, and more importantly stress-free!!!
