Transitions for Downsizers Principal
The Gail Bell Group
Trusted, experienced, and deeply caring for her clients, Gail Petersen Bell has dedicated the last 37 years to helping people find the homes of their dreams. The Principal of The Gail Bell Group and Senior Vice President Broker at Compass, she is known for providing exceptional customer service and for having specialized expertise in the buying and selling of luxury homes, new construction, antique homes and providing right-size transitions for downsizers.
Throughout her career, Bell has been devoted to not only helping her clients, but also to providing educational enrichment to the community. For 20 years she produced an award-winning cable television show, providing guidance and insight into real estate best practices. A top listing agent on the South Shore, Bell has been recognized as one of the “Top 10 Women in Real Estate in Greater Boston” by “The Boston Herald” and a “Power Broker’’ by “The Boston Globe” for many consecutive years.
Bell is particularly proud of her Transitions for Rightsizers program, specifically designed to help homeowners navigate the often emotional process of leaving a cherished home. The program offers a customized bundle of services that can include decluttering, repairs, staging, marketing and more. “It’s a very specific niche and many people need a lot of hand holding. But for me, it’s a way to give back and it brings me a great deal of satisfaction,” says Bell.
About 18 months ago, Bell assembled a team of seven agents and founded The Gail Bell Group, a top-producing team on the South Shore. Leveraging innovative marketing collateral, tools, and technology provided by Compass, the team gives clients an edge in the market. As always, Bell’s goal is to continually provide the best possible outcome for each individual transaction, and to make sure her clients feel very well taken care of.
