When we decided to relocate to the Atlanta area we had no contacts and actually called Don Bell because of the way he presented himself in his online video. We were pleased that he took our call and arranged for us to view houses and neighborhoods on our first visit, even though we were not prepared to move at that time. Over the next two years as we viewed houses on his website, Don was always available, through both e-mail and phone calls, to answer our questions, offer advice and inform us about new properties.
Don was a tremendous help during our final visit to see houses for our move, setting up a comprehensive tour, providing input based on his experience and explaining the process. During the decision, offer and closing process Don couldn’t have handled our interests better. Especially as we were remote, it was important to have someone who provided a high level of attention to our interests.
Thinking back as we get settled into our new home, we realize we received what we consider over and above service from Don Bell. Being unfamiliar with the area, Don is also continuing to help us with everything from where things are to references for other services. His help has not stopped with the signing.

It is a privilege to give our endorsement to Don Bell. We've purchased homes several times but have never worked with someone as professional, attentive to detail, and expert in all matters related to buying and selling real estate. Our story is more complicated than many, as it involved completing the entire process from 3000 miles away. Don executed flawlessly, performed as our personal representative, and made the process of delivering offers/counters and signing related documents easy with his electronic document service… and it was fast.
Julie and I consider ourselves fortunate to have discovered Donald Bell and consider Don a friend. We are happy to share our story with anyone who is looking for a real estate pro, Don gets our highest professional and personal recommendation.

Don was recommended by other company executives who moved to the greater Atlanta area and who were very satisfied with his service.
With his market knowledge and his ability to carefully listen to his customer’s needs, he was able to find the right home for us in a very short timeline. His market analysis and price checks on potential subject properties provided us a very solid basis for our own decision making process.
Don’s well established network of support services enabled us to close the deal in a very short time period including a very detailed home inspection to ensure no hidden cost.
Besides Don’s professionalism it was always a great pleasure to deal with him as a very friendly and guiding person.

I wanted to drop you a quick line to let you know what a pleasure it has been to work with your colleague, Don Bell. By way of explanation, my family and I live in Tokyo, Japan and recently (with Don’s help) purchased a house in Suwanee, Georgia. I began working with Don in February of 2007 on locating a house for my family in the Atlanta area, although we have no set time frame within which to leave Tokyo. I initially found Don via his website (the best of its kind—and I’ve seen a lot of them) followed by telephone contact, which ultimately led to several face-to-face meetings.
I found Don to be exceedingly knowledgeable, helpful, responsive and exceptionally competent. Not only does Don work tirelessly to earn the respect and trust of his clients; every party we interfaced with (ex. Property managers, seller’s agents, lawyers, bankers, etc.) seemed to enjoy working with Don and were responsive to his clients’ needs.
Please know that I will enthusiastically recommend Don’s services to others in the future. During our lives, it is rare to encounter a person possessing the integrity, knowledge, diligence and enthusiasm of Don. It is even rarer still to have such a person guide you through the single-most important financial transaction in your family’s life. My family and I are fortunate to have met and worked with Don, as are you to have him as a part of the team.

We purchased a home using Don Bell (Solid Source) in early 2011 in the Milton Area. We knew pretty much what we were looking for and Don's expertise and knowledge of the North Atlanta market was instrumental in us being able to find a home with the features we were looking for in a great part of Milton. Don has an excellent grasp of not only market conditions but also Area pricing and Inventory thus we were able to narrow our search. Don also provided us considerable assistance and expertise in the negotiation of a Purchase Agreement with the Seller once we had selected the home of our choice. We would highly recommend Don to anyone looking to purchase a home.
Patty and Dave Hannah, Milton, GA
Our experience with Don was terrific. Our family moved to Atlanta not knowing anyone—and Don treated us like family. He educated us on the neighborhoods, schools and community. We couldn’t have done it without Don. He found us a lovely home that our family loves, in a neighborhood that we truly enjoy. I highly recommend Don to family, friends, and fellow transplants!

What a great discovery for us to have found Don as our realtor. His knowledge of the market was exceptional and he was totally committed to finding us just what we wanted. We especially appreciated how he watched out for our best interests, freeing us from any worry and saving us considerable money. Honest, informed and just a lot of fun to know, we have no hesitation in recommending Don for whatever your real estate needs might be.

Just a note to say thank you for your assistance in finding me a home with such a short deadline. Also, your help negotiating with the seller and getting the inspection done on time took a lot of stress off my shoulders. Your knowledge of home construction certainly helped me to weigh all of the factors on the homes we viewed and to make an informed decision. You are a true professional and this is the reason I always refer you to new employees moving to this area. And, of course, why I called you again for my second home purchase. Thanks again!
