We Care. We Deliver.


Founded in 1976, Bell Partners has extensive experience in acquiring, repositioning, operating, and selling apartment communities. The Company's deep experience, institutional quality processes, disciplined focus, strong reporting capabilities, and dedicated teams have enabled Bell Partners to become a seasoned investment manager for institutional and high net worth clients.

Since 2002, Bell Partners has completed over $16 billion of apartment transactions on behalf of its investors and partners. The fund platform was created in 2006 and, since that time, six funds with total equity commitments of $1.5 billion have been launched and substantially invested on behalf of institutional and high net worth investors. Bell's disciplined approach to investment management has produced a track record of favorable returns. As of June 30, 2020, the Company has sold 251 apartment properties for aggregate gross proceeds of approximately $7.7 billion resulting in a levered IRR and equity multiple of 17.5% and 2.1x (net of fees).

Additionally, per the 2014-2019 releases of the Preqin Global Real Estate Report, Bell is ranked as one of the most consistent top performing real estate fund managers globally.
