Clientele

"Having purchased/sold eight homes in my life, I have seen the range of real estate professionals.  Celeina is by far the most amazing agent I've ever worked with.  She truly listens to the client and treats that client's needs like her own, paying attention to every detail of the home sale/purchase process.  We used her for both the sale of our previous home and purchase of our current home, and we couldn't be more pleased. Her responsiveness, and unsurpassed knowledge and experience are combined with a superior client service attitude and work ethic to create the best experience we've ever had with a real estate transaction.  She sold our home in SEVEN DAYS in the middle of the econcomic downturn - for a full-price offer.  AMAZING!  We were blessed to have found the BEST of the best! " Jamee and Russell Mionie

Celeina helped me secure 2 foreclosures after showing me multiple listings. Because good foreclosures sell quickly, Celeina always responded quickly to my requests to see any property on very short notice. Her experience was helpful in giving me advice and guidance when it came to making an offer and closing on my properties and was always focused on details to make sure we had no problems. She brings value and integrity to the challenging process of selling or buying property and I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone who wants a real estate agent that will work hard for you.” Ben Swain

My husband and I met Celeina when looking to purchase our first home. We had a very limited budget, but Celeina gave us several options and treated us as though we were buying a million dollar home. I always received immediate responses to emails or texts, no matter how small the issue. One of the best qualities Celeina possesses is her sincere caring nature. You can tell that she truly cares about her customers and her work and it’s not just a business transaction to her. I would never hesitate to recommend Celeina to anyone. She is truly one in a million! Amy Addison 

As a CPA, it is so rewarding to see clients and friends who are willing to take the plunge and start new businesses and expand existing businesses during this time of economic uncertainty. Fortunately for the American economy, there are small business people who are willing to risk their hard-earned money and their hard-fought credit ratings to create new jobs in their communities in hopes of creating new wealth for their families. My hat is off to my dear friend Celeina Houston for launching Bella Realty Group, Inc. in 2012. It is going to be a great blessing to watch such a delightful lady create a business in her own image: thoughtful, conscientious, professional, and distinctive. Randy Hodge, CPA

Celeina Houston is 100% customer focused and worked tirelessly to help our family maximize the investment in our new home. We were an out of state relocation and had a limited time window to purchase our new home. Celeina’s knowledge of the area helped focus the search based on our interests and dedicated countless hours to showing us homes. Her insight and understanding of the market allowed us to fully leverage our position in the negotiation of the final price of our home. Celeina’s customer focus has continued even after the close of our home, in the two years subsequent to our home purchase we have contacted Celeina with questions regarding market conditions and she is always quick and thorough in her responses. Based on my experience with Celeina, I highly recommend her as a realtor. Jim & April Cotney

I value our friendship the most and it is truly a blessing to have gotten to know and work with such an amazing and wonderful person as you are Celeina Houston. Congrats and Best Wishes at Bella Realty. Chris Jones

My real estate experience with Celeina Houston was remarkable ! In mid 2010 I gave Celeina a huge real estate challenge , I was living in Texas and request her to find me a future retirement home on Lake Lanier . Well with Celeina's unique ability to truly understand her clients' requirements , desires and budget coupled with her vast knowledge of the area builders , school districts , and the counties , she made the process seamless . Celeina communicated with me online and was so professional and punctual with scheduling viewings to maximum my time when I flew into Atlanta . In October , 2010 , I closed on my dream home and she also recommended a church home that I fell in love with also. Michael Dulaney 

I was initially impressed with Celeina’s enthusiasm, communication skills and professional demeanor. She has represented me for the past 8 years for the purchase and sale of both personal and investment properties. Her knowledge or real estate contracts, relationships with Lenders and technology systems have ensured smooth, swift closings. She consistently demonstrates her strong commitment to a top-performing customer service professional. I heartily endorse her for your real estate needs. She has my highest recommendation and I am happy to furnish more details upon request. Larry Tarver

My husband and I relocated from Tampa to be closer to our Georgia family. We were unfamiliar with the Cumming area. Celeina assisted us with our on-line search and scheduled appointments that were convenient for our limited time frame. Initially we were expecting to purchase a resale home. However, she found us the perfect new home that exceeded our expectations. Her experience from selling new homes allowed us to completely understand the process and prevented unnecessary delays. We closed on time and met our moving vans at closing! She is our Realtor for life! Diane & Dave Johnson  
We were especially impressed with Celeina’s marketing plan. Her attention to details and communication skills were essential in the sale of our home. We highly recommend her for future referrals…. Philip Hurst
There is always an immediate response, no matter how many questions were asked of her. We know we can trust her as she is both professionally and personally ethical. Kim Lee

As a first time home-buyer, we really needed to be guided through the process. Celeina was excellent at keeping connected with us for the lengthy time as we waited out our lease. She was willing to take the time to talk through all of the steps and the paperwork. She answered any and all questions we had during the process. As our family grows, we will rely upon Celeina to assist us again. Brian Kessler

It was an absolute pleasure working with you. You were recommended to us by a good friend, and we are so pleased that we decided to work with you. You were knowledgeable and professional. Thank you so much for everything! We really thought buying a house would be scary, but you made it so easy. We really appreciate you taking the time to walk us through everything and explain every step of the process. We absolutely love our new house and would never have been able to get it without your help. Thank you, thank you, and thank you! The Pruitt Family

Thank You for the wonderful service you provided to us this summer. As a realtor for the past 10 years, I had high expectations of the service I wished to receive during our home search. You far exceeded my expectations from my original email contact with you, to the closing and your follow up. You are truly a professional Realtor who understands the meaning of service. It is no wonder you have been so successful. We wish you continued success. Mrs. Willene James
