Ask a hundred real estate professionals the one thing they love more than anything else about the business they’re in, and you’ll most probably get a hundred different answers. For Jermaine Bell of Century 21 WC Realty in Wellington, it’s the chance to turn an ugly duckling into a swan.

“I really enjoy home transformations,” he said. “I love working on homes that most people are scared to step foot into and making them absolute gems.”

Bell grew up in Kingston, Jamaica. He left the island at age 16 and finished up his high school years at Plantation High School. After attending Florida Atlantic University for two years, he began his new life in real estate. He has been a licensed, full-time Realtor since 2004. Bell lives in Wellington with his wife and daughter.

Bell’s area of expertise is residential real estate, which he has concentrated on for more than a decade. His interest goes beyond putting the right buyer in the right home.

“I love helping my clients generate income, whether that be through flipping a property or rental income,” he said.

Bell knows that his experience as a Realtor comes into play with every potential deal. He doesn’t underestimate the effect of the human factor in these dealings, either.

“I think I not only offer expertise in my craft, but a personal relationship with my clients where they all feel that I genuinely have their best interests at heart,” Bell said. “They also know that I would never make suggestions or ask of them things I wouldn’t do myself. I think based upon that, a respect factor is developed that goes a long way in building a fruitful relationship. One of my strengths is being able to adapt to an ever-changing market.”

Riding the ups and downs of a sometimes volatile real estate market is part of the job. There’s something to be said for stability as well, which is Bell’s up-to-the-minute assessment of real estate in the Wellington community.

“The current state of real estate in our area is extremely solid,” Bell said. “Values are on the steady rise, which is great for current homeowners. The demand for the area is still strong and shows no signs of slowing down, in my opinion.”

Bell very much enjoys living and working in Wellington, the place that he and his family call home.

“Wellington is an area that offers such a wide variety of things to so many different people,” he said. “The different economic and social demographics make it a very unique environment. From the different parks and recreation, multicultural events to the various equestrian activities or landing a plane in your back yard, it has a little of everything.”

Century 21 WC Realty is located in the original Wellington Mall at 12794 W. Forest Hill Blvd., Suite 29, in Wellington. To reach Jermaine Bell, call (561) 201-9219.
