Bell Development Company welcomes Myra Jones to its company sales team. She will be joining the tight-knit sales team at Bell Development made up of New Home Specialist Kaye Ivey, Leasing and advertising manager, Manuel Martinez and Owner, Jay W. Bell.

Ms. Jones brings over 20 years of real estate experience to the company. She holds a real estate broker license in both Tennessee and Georgia. She was previously the principle broker for a nationally recognized development company in Sevierville.

Officials said, "Her amiable outlook, passion for new construction and development and easy going nature make her a perfect addition to the Bell Development sales team. Her approach to real estate is to keep Southern hospitality alive, while demanding that every client receives superior service throughout the entire buying process. She has shown a dedication to the Bell Development values of selling not simply a new house to our customers, but selling our customers a home where they can make loving memories."

She is married with two children and five grandchildren. She enjoys travel and antiquing in her spare time.

 “It took a long time to find the right fit for our growing sales team” said Jay W. Bell, “and Kaye, Manuel and myself are pleased to welcome Mrya into our company”.

Bell Development is in the process of enlarging many of our ongoing neighborhoods. “We are building new roads again in Belleau Ridge located in Ooltewah, Stonewall Farms in Hixson, Sedman Hills in Hixson and we are planning the expansion of several other ongoing Bell neighborhoods,” Mr. Bell said.

In addition to these new lots, Bell Development is starting many new homes in all their popular Hamilton County neighborhoods. “We have new homes under construction in almost every area of the county and in all price ranges and styles” said Bell Realtor Kaye Ivey, “come out this week and visit Mrya and me in one of our beautiful model homes."
