Testimonials for Carol Bell
As a long time neighbor and friend of Carol Bell, I’ve always been impressed by her commitment and contribution to our neighborhood, and to in town in general. She’s knowledgeable, friendly, and there if you need her. I can’t imagine how many in-town families Carol has helped find the place they call home. Happy 20 years!

I’ve known Carol Bell for over 20 years. With her knowledge and longevity in the market she has assisted me in purchasing, selling, and even renovating numerous houses over the years. I have admired her honesty and integrity when working with her.
Carol was recommended to me by a retired realtor friend I trusted, and I will always be grateful to her and to Carol. Just as my friend said, Carol was hardworking, responsive and highly professional. We had a challenging sale and Carol recommended an approach that was creative, and ultimately successful, and she remained in close contact throughout. But one warning: if you set an appointment with Carol, be on time, because she’ll be there five minutes early!
I first met Carol back in 2000 when she help me buy my first investment property. Since that time, we have worked together on seven other purchases or sales involving either my primary residence or investment properties. She is an invaluable asset because of her extensive knowledge of the intown real estate market. However, what really sets her apart from her competition is her honesty and integrity. I could not recommend her more highly.

I have purchased and sold 5 homes and have worked with at least 8 different realtors in 3 states and have to say that Carol Bell of Shea and Carol Group is the most knowledgeable, outstanding, ethical and personable realtor with whom I have worked. Carol is a true professional – efficient and organized. We were moving from out of state, had no knowledge of Atlanta and flew into town for the weekend to start looking at neighborhoods. Carol had more than 30 homes that she had previewed and organized for us to see one Saturday. She knows Atlanta very well on a personal level and could give us insight into schools, public services, taxes, recreation, dining and quality of life aspects that were not apparent by just looking at a house online or driving by. Carol has several decades of experience as a builder and contractor and her insight into the structural aspects of a building helped to save us from a house that we would have put an offer on if she hadn’t pointed out the foundation faults.
Carol’s expertise did not end with the closing as she continues to be a resource for us regarding electricians, contractors for remodeling and questions about roofing and landscaping. I know that Carol is very well respected by builders, contractors and other agents. I was given Carol’s name when I contacted a builder directly about a home I was interested in seeing and, perhaps, purchasing. I suggested that we could both save money if I could see the home with him and not go through a realtor. He refused to cut out the realtor (Carol) as they have been working together for the past decade. I requested the realtor’s name and gave Carol a call one Sunday morning. I was so impressed by the 15 minute phone conversation we had and my instinct was not wrong – Carol Bell will work hard for you, always give her well considered opinion and and will make the stressful process of purchasing a new home a real pleasure!
