Michael B. Bell is an industry leader and a highly referred real estate broker with extensive experience specializing in single party seller representation. From luxury homes to challenging and highly specialized transactions, Michael has an intimate understanding of the real estate sales process. In his 20-year career, he has successfully handled almost $500M in sales along with his own real estate investments. Michael was ranked in the top 0.1% nationally by The Wall Street Journal. 90% of his business is repeat and referral-based and many of his referrals are from local attorneys who describe him as a resourceful, high-level fiduciary specialist. He has sold more homes than anyone at the Sotheby's International Realty - Greater Pasadena office in 2015, 2016, 2017, and 2018. Within Sotheby’s International Realty SoCal, he was ranked as the #9 agent in sales in 2018.

Michael started his career over 20 years ago after earning his Bachelors in Business Administration from Gonzaga University. Working with his grandfather who was a developer, Michael started as an investor. Finding the need for a sophisticated and assertive broker, he decided to obtain his broker license to represent himself. Soon, neighbors asked him for representation, then agents asked to join him. In 1999, Michael formed his own ten-agent boutique realty firm. Five years later, a national franchise bought his brokerage.

Michael, along with his wife, Anne, and their two sons, resides in Bungalow Heaven, a Historic Landmark District. Their carefully restored 1914 Cyril Bennett-designed Craftsman has been featured on the most prominent of home tours. He is active with the Pasadena-Foothills Association of Realtors and has served with a delegation in the California State Capitol.

Michael holds a California Bureau of Real Estate Broker license and he is a graduate of the Realtor Institute (GRI), a California Probate Specialist (CPS) and holds membership in the National and the California Associations of Realtors.

Michael is an Eagle Scout and his two sons are in Scouts. In addition, he is a merit badge counselor for the Boy Scouts of America. The family enjoys Lake Arrowhead, biking, Thai food, camping, traveling and adventures on the weekends.
