Tade & Emily live and breathe real estate, which make them effectiverealtors. I remember Tade going beyond ordinary, when she had todisconnect our faulty house alarm before a showing. The team are consummate professionals.

Tade Bua-Bell was the consummate professional in negotiating the purchase of our Naples home.  We were often out-of-state and were grateful we could depend upon Tade for honesty, integrity, knowledge and familiarity with the market.

Tade and her group were always very prompt with answers to my questions. They are an extremely professional team and a pleasure to work with.  And they get results.

The reason why I selected the Bua Bell group was their ability to offer real estate experience, acumen, professionalism and marketing extras that no other realtor I interviewed could and they did not let me down. Wow! They deserve to be considered for anyone selling or buying a  home in their specialty market!

For the past 16 years, I’ve worked with Emily as she has listed and sold properties for me. She, and now, daughter, Tade make a formidable force of strength in the Naple’s Area market.  They are knowledgeable, very professional, responsive and they listen to your needs.

Their marketing expertise provides ultimate exposure to their listings and Client needs. Their goal is to make clients happy,  which explains the large number of repeat customers that continue to work with Emily and Tade.

I like them both very much and it’s nice to have your Realtors among those who really care about your happiness with your real estate experience.  I would never hesitate to recommend them.

My wife and I have known Tade and Emily both personally and by reputation since coming to  Mediterra in 2004. When we decided to  upgrade from our villa, our preferred choice of realtor was Tade and her mom. They didn’t disappoint. First of all, we couldn’t have picked a worst time to sell but Tade and her mom helped us select the appropriate price and gave us great advice on staging. They stuck with it ,showing and advertising the villa frequently and stimulating interest with other realtor colleagues. After the sale they continued to give us valuable advice regarding our new lot and the building process. They take service to new heights in the real estate business and the service doesn’t stop with the sale. We have recommended Tade and Emily to many of our friends and neighbors. Without exception, the results have always been positive. We won’t hesitate to use them again and we would urge you to consider them also.

After listing with other realtors for six months without success, we engaged Emily and Tade Bua-Bell. Within two weeks we had an offer which resulted in a signed contract. Emily and Tade are experienced and very professional, they respond on a timely basis and are delight to work with. We would have no hesitation in recommending their services.

For 15 years the Bua Bell Group continues to earned our trust on both sides of multiple real estate transactions. Frequent, clear, and honest communication is also a key factor in their ability to exceed expectations to get the sale done. We would not consider working with anyone else.

Emily and Tade worked well with both me and my husband, who is an attorney, to find us the best property and negotiate and complete the process involving multiple parties, smoothly, in a timely fashion and with no follow up complications. We would highly recommend them and will use them again in the future for any real estate situation we may have.
