How it all started

BELL Home Team is one of Central New York’s most trusted (and top selling) Real Estate Brokerages. With hundreds upon hundreds of past transactions, Katherine Clare Bell, Mark Bell & the BELL Home Team have created remarkable deep roots in a community that they love. Kat & Mark attribute much of their company’s success to not only being a collection of extremely attentive “high-touch” agents using proven, methodical systems, but also to having an expert intuition regarding the psychology of buyers' and sellers' real estate needs. BELL Home Team specializes in serving not only buyers and sellers, but also enjoys teaching new investors how to create a new revenue stream through real estate investing.

Licensed in 2005, Katherine Clare Bell approached the business of real estate with extreme passion, launching her to an area top producer immediately, earning the “Rookie of the Year” award. Having spent time learning under several area brokers over the years, Katherine felt CNY needed a new, hyper-local approach to real estate service... and thus BELL Home Team was born.

Along with her husband/fellow Central New York native, Mark Bell, BELL Home Team continues to grow under the basic (but paramount) fundamentals of VALUE, SUPPORT & TRANSPARENCY. The entire organization shares the understanding of the trust level and care level required to help clients achieve their real estate goals. BELL Home Team remains one of the very few brokerages that is a 100% locally owned business invested in keeping our focus & contribution (both personal & financial) in our Central New York community.

In addition to Katherine & Mark’s passion for real estate, they love spending time with their 2 children (Jagger & Piper) as well as their puppy, Marty McFly.  And in their very scarce free time, they also enjoy playing together as lead singers in their band, aptly named “The Side Project”.

Doug was a pleasure to work with from the beginning to end. Even when my lender was giving me convoluted answers, he knew exactly how to help me understand what the next step in the process was.



From the moment we talked with Katherine about selling our home through the moment the house sold, she was available to answer questions and give advice.

—Kate H.


Katherine was an absolute pleasure to work with. She is organized, knowledgeable and extremely professional. She walked us through the buying process step by step.

Mark was open and upfront about the home sale process. Provided realistic expectations on the value of the house and communicated after every open house.

Mark helped us move through the entire process, from sprucing up, repairs, staging, photographing, listing, scheduling showings, to negotiating and accepting an offer, and finally closing!

—Alicia L.


Adele and the Bell Home Team were wonderful to work with when we purchased our home - from out of state, during a pandemic! They provided excellent guidance throughout the whole process.

—Claire C.


Katherine consistently went out of her way to accommodate me during this stressful time. Always kept me updated and in the loop. Her much needed encouragement when things looked bleak was much appreciated.
