About Kathy and Bill
Read what others are saying about Active Adults Realty and Real Estate Agents Kathy Sperl-Bell and Bill Bell
We had been looking for retirement homes for the past three years. We looked extensively for homes in the state of New Jersey and in North Carolina. We never felt that any of these properties would work for us. I read an article in AARP magazine about Lewes Delaware being a great place to retire. Pat was working in a restaurant in Brick, NJ and ran into a man from the Lewes area who also stated that Lewes was a great place to live. Pat was online searching for homes in the Lewes area when this beautiful face appeared on the screen and it was Kathy Sperl-Bell. We immediately called her and she wasted no time in getting properties organized for us to view. We agreed on a weekend in September to meet her in the Active Adult Community Office. She had a program all set up for us to view on potential properties. She listened carefully to all the requirements we wanted for our home. We had no intention at that time to buy a home, we were only getting a feel for what the market was like in the Lewes area. After looking at a few homes, Kathy suggested we look at homes in Nassau Grove. She found a home that met mostly all our specifications. We not only bought our home that weekend, we made a friend for life and that is Kathy. She never pressured us into buying our home. We fell in love with our home and the neighborhood and within twenty four hours we were signing the contract to purchase our home. We woke up the next morning and said to each other did we really buy a house? We laughed because we hadn't sold our home in New Jersey but ultimately knew we had made the correct choice in buying in Lewes. To make a long story short, we sold our home in NJ in six days without a realtor. One month later we sold our commercial business building and in January we moved to Nassau Grove. We cannot say enough about Kathy and of course her husband Bill. He was instrumental in getting our home painted before our official move. He did some beautiful trim work in our morning room and breakfast/living room area. These two people will always be very special to us. We not only found a new home we found friends for life. I would recommend this duo to all our friends and relatives who are looking to live or retire in Delaware. We can never express into words just how valuable they were to us in making our move a smooth one. Thank you Kathy and Bill!!
Judy, Kathy and the rest of the team - Thanks for all your help and assistance and patience. We got a contract on our house in just 9 days!
You have been wonderful. Happy Holidays.
When my husband and I made the decision to relocate to the Lewes, DE area when we retired, it was based on having vacationed in the area for many years. However, we knew we would need help in finding the right spot. Kathy and team were so helpful to us in that respect. She listened to what we wanted, identified many different alternatives to look at based on her deep experience and knowledge of the area and had great patience as we went through the decision process. In addition, since we sold our former house sooner than expected, she found us a rental house for the interim period while we waited for our new house to be built. We would have had great difficulty doing that ourselves in the short time frame we had. Our questions were answered quickly and we got lots of supporting information about the buying process and the area from Kathy and her team which was so helpful in making our move to the area. The whole experience was positive and smooth from the beginning. We are grateful and happily moved into our new home in a develpment we already love.
Thanks, Kathy, Bill and Judy.
We hadn't purchased a house in thirty years. We simply wanted someone to look out for our interests. What we got was a team who proved invaluable at every step of the home buying process. Bill was there with sound reasoning for the selection of up-grades. He was there for every walk thru checking the quality of workmanship and insuring we were satisfied. Again at closing it just wasn't us going over the paperwork. So if you would feel better with someone looking out for you I can tell you, Bill and Kathy have your back.
Kathy, Bill & Judy - You did a great job finding a home and a rental for us. And, we will recommend your company to friends.
I recently relocated from NJ to DE and while moving is a very emotional, physical, stressful experience, the team of Active Adults Realty actually made it an enjoyable one. Bill Bell, my realtor, found my new home for me and it is above and beyond anything I could have imagined. Bill, Kathy and Judy were informed, involved, competent and compassionate. I was impressed with them and their circle of contacts during the settlement process. Thank you to everyone at Active Adults Realty. I will be recommending you to all my friends when they decide to move here after seeing my beautiful new home and lifestyle in Lower Slower Delaware.
After we decided to retire to Coastal Delaware from Colorado, we were driving down Savannah Road, saw that colorful Active Adults Realty sign and pulled right in. Kathy, Bill and Debbie were able to help us find the house we wanted and gave us a really good feel for the area. Judy was great with taking care of our paperwork-even finding errors in the attorney's contracts and helping us save some money. We always felt that we were very important at Active Adults Realty. Thanks!
Thanks you for all you've done for us. Peter and I had a very successful and happy trip to Lewes - lots of special people in our life to make our big dream just fall into place.
A friend of mine makes jewelry, I hope you like what I picked for you.
We're glad we found you and most of all THANKS! Looking forward to your Annual Client Party.
You ... and we ... are lucky to have Judy as the Gal Friday for all our little questions, etc. She is a gem! Thank you for the great job you have done for us. We love our new home and neighborhood. It is a perfect fit for us. See you soon.
Wow, how to begin to describe Kathy Sperl-Bell as a real estate agent. Let's see, she cares about her clients, she will do whatever is necessary to support her clients, she will answer questions morning, noon and night, she knows the area, she knows the builders, she understands familial relationships with regards to the buying process, she takes time to understand her client's needs, she will offer good advice as needed and she's married to this dude named Bill who, when necessary, brings a builder's technical perspective to the table in a way I've never encountered before - they are a great team! In addition, Kathy is just an all around sweetheart. So it is without hesitation that my wife and I recommend Kathy Sperl-Bell as THE real estate professional to work with in Sussex County, DE.
It is with heartfelt respect for and appreciation to you both that we write to thank you for all you did to sell our Milton home. From the moment we listed with you until the day of settlement you provided excellent customer service--which included superior knowledge of the market, an understanding and sensitivity to our personal situation, and most importantly to us, ALWAYS answering our calls and emails in a timely and helpful manner.
When presented with a seemingly insurmountable series of circumstances (a failed septic two weeks before settlement, garage variance discovered in preparation for settlement, and sewer installation that took 8 plus months) you calmly and rationally worked to help us problem solve. Other agents might have turned their back on our situation, but your determined nature and willingness to go the extra mile made all the difference in moving the deal forward. In addition, you are both incredibly compassionate people and we will not forget everything you did for us.
As a team, you have the other agents in the region beat. Kathy’s knowledge of the market and Bill’s skills as a contractor were invaluable navigating our complicated sale and settlement. In your office, Judy competently handled the many transfer of documents seamlessly and efficiently. We highly, highly recommend your services and would happily serve as a reference to anyone who might need one.
We recently listed and sold our home through Active Adults Realty. Both Kathy and Bill Bell did everything they could to create a positive outcome by providing staging services, assistance with repairs when needed and being responsive to our needs. Their support staff was most helpful as well. They are very knowledgable of the market and aware of what works and doesn't. We wish them every success as they continue to assist people looking to buy or sell a home in Sussex County.
Pat and I feel lucky to have stumbled upon you, not only for the purchase of our new house here in Lewes, but for putting us in touch with another great realtor in Jersey.
Thank you for all your help during our 4-month adventure. both you and Judy were responsive and pleasant.
Dear Kathy and Bill,
Congratulations to you both on the formation of your very own brokerage! How exciting and also rewarding for all your hand work. We are thrilled for you both. My husband and I will be contacting you in another year to help us find just the right place for us in Coastal Delaware. We appreciate the newsletter that you send us via email.

Thank you for making our move to Milton so uneventful. It has been an easy transition. We love the house and hope to see you soon!
Do you want a great Realtor? Contact Kathy Sperl-Bell, she is fantastic and also her husband Bill. I listed my property with her and she was right on it. She told me how to show my home . I did all she suggested and within 6 months, my property was sold. She and her husband Bill are Fantastic to work with. I not only wanted to sell my property, but I needed to buy another property and she was Right there for Me. We looked at several properties and I decided on one and she handled all for me. All I can say is that Kathy is there from the beginning till the end and she fights for her clients. She did for me , I sold my property, and now am in a wonderful development that she had shown me and I am so Happy. I would recommend the Kathy - Bill Team to anyone, they have one thing in mind and that is their Client. This Team wants to make their Client Happy and they know how to do it.
After using a realtor who just sent us multiple listings I found the baby boomer specialist on the internet. We met with Kathy, giving her all the pertinent details of what we were looking for. She showed us many homes in the area until we fell in love with our house. Kathy helped us through the entire process and was always there by our side. After we moved in Bill did a beautiful job painting our house and hanging lights and fans. Thanks from the bottom of our hearts to you both. You helped make our transition very easy.
