Wisconsin native Jeff Bella is living the dream in Belize. An entrepreneur who has owned several businesses in the United States, he escaped the hustle and bustle of America to pursue his dream job selling exotic real estate, going on to become one of the leading real estate professionals in Belize, as well as the Dominican Republic and other Caribbean locales. Of all the places Jeff has travelled to, he knew he’d found his paradise when he arrived on the island of Ambergris Caye: the largest island of Belize, it’s the perfect place for Jeff to enjoy life to the fullest. Ocean-bound on his boat, the days are long and warm, the tropical breezes a sweet backdrop to the natural beauty of the island, with its rich Mayan history, unique wildlife, great local cuisine and the boundless blue skies and sea.
“I stepped on this island, and the warmth of the people and the beautiful reef captured me forever.” There was no going back! Jeff had spent years studying Belize; finding out how easy it was to own a piece of paradise there, he decided to make Ambergris Caye his permanent home base and set up shop as a real estate specialist in island living. his intimate knowledge of the island combined with his experience and expertise in customer service make him the perfect agent for those who might be looking for their own paradise. Jeff is motivated to build lasting relationships, and enjoys the opportunities he has to work with all kinds of people, from individuals to land developers and financial service executives, taking pride in making every transaction stress-free for all parties.
Despite all the hard work he’s done to get him to where he is, Jeff credits his parents for his success, as they taught him not only his sense of personal ethics, but also the value of relationships – and most importantly to never give up on your dreams. Part of this ethos is the reason why he got into real estate in the first place, to help others realize their dreams of living in paradise. First-hand experience showed him that the buying process could be made so much easier if there was somebody who could explain certain things about doing business in the region, and to advise on how to avoid the pitfalls and maximize their investment. For Jeff, this was far more than a job, it was a mission.
There’s certainly no better person to help you to discover Belize, and Jeff lives his life by example: living on the ocean, days spent on his boat, exploring the reef and finding the perfect place to put anchor and watch the spectacular sunsets, his favorite country music in the background.
