John Bell of Southern Bell Living Is Proud To Be Your Dave Ramsey Real Estate Agent
At Southern Bell Living, we pride ourselves on providing the highest possible service to our clients. Our commitment and excellence in real estate are two of the big reasons why we are now a Dave Ramsey real estate agent - or, more precisely, John Bell is one of Dave's Endorsed Local Providers (ELP, for short). Dave's program endorses local real estate agents and firms who share his financial ethic. We're honored and privileged for John to be a part of this exciting program!
What Is a Dave Ramsey Real Estate Agent ELP?
Dave Ramsey is one of the most recognizable names on the radio today. His talk show reaches over 14 million viewers each week, as they listen to him give expert financial advice that helps people steer clear of bad debt and become financially fit.
To help his listeners (and others) find service providers who valued these core principles as much as he does, Ramsey created the "Endorsed Local Providers" program. This program helps people find local providers, like real estate agents and debt elimination services, to do things the Ramsey way.
Qualifying for this program is not easy. Companies and individuals typically need to be in business for many years and be at the top of their game in their particular market. This ensures the service they provide meets the expectations that people have of a RamseyTrusted professional!
John Bell of Southern Bell Living Is Now an ELP
At Southern Bell Living, we have worked diligently to help our clients find the best homes for their financial situations and lifestyle aspirations. As anyone who follows our blog and social media accounts knows, we think Charleston, SC, is pretty much the best place to live in the United States. With a lovely climate most of the year, some of the best food in the country, and a family-friendly, fun atmosphere, Charleston checks most of the boxes for families, young professionals, and retirees.
Perhaps most importantly, though, Charleston has homes for any financial situation and lifestyle. If you're starting your journey with Ramsey's infamous debt snowball method and looking to buy your first starter home (instead of throwing money away on rent), Charleston has numerous affordable homes. Or, conversely, if you've followed Ramsey's advice and now have the financial means to buy a million-dollar property, Charleston has those homes too.
What About Charleston for Remote Work?
Charleston is also one of the best places to work remotely! We have numerous families and individuals looking to flee the high cost of living in places like New York, California, and parts of Texas, and buy a property in Charleston. If you have a job that permits working from a remote location, this makes a lot of financial sense as you can save on rent while building equity. Dave Ramsey frequently talks about the benefits of renting vs. buying, and one of the things he recommends is having 10-20% down for a 15-year (not 30-year) fixed-rate mortgage. The amount you pay for rent in one of those high cost-of-living places could easily be your mortgage payment on a 15-year note in Charleston, depending on where you locate within the city, of course. These are the types of insights that an ELP, like John, can give you!
As your RamseyTrusted, Endorsed Local Provider, John will work with you to find the perfect property for your financial situation. We know how intelligent and thoughtful Dave Ramsey's listeners are, so that also means John will be happy to answer any questions you might have about real estate in the Charleston, SC, area!
Why Choose a Dave Ramsey ELP?
If you're a fan of Dave Ramsey, the answer to why you would choose one of his Endorsed Local Providers is probably pretty obvious: you know that they have the same work and financial ethic like he does. Anyone who knows Dave Ramsey knows how important it is that anything he puts his name to meets top standards. Even if you don't listen to Dave Ramsey, there are still many reasons to pick an ELP agent!
First, all ELP agents need to serve their clients primarily and care about the sale less. Putting clients first means that ELP agents will work with you to learn more about your situation. We'll also provide recommendations based on Ramsey's proven principles. If you want peace of mind knowing that the home you're buying makes sense for you, you'll want to enlist the services of an ELP like John Bell.
Additionally, Ramsey holds all RamseyTrusted providers to some of the highest standards in their industries. That means closing on more homes than 90% of the other agents in their area for real estate agents. In other words, using an ELP implies that you're getting some of the best agents in the business. That will inevitably mean a better experience for you!
Finally, ELPs are fans of Ramsey themselves. That means these providers don't want you getting into some deal you don't want. It also means that ELPs know the value of a home and how it should work with your budget.
As a Dave Ramsey ELP, John Bell and Southern Bell Living share these values. John cares deeply about each of his clients and has some of the highest standards in the Charleston area. We work diligently to ensure each of our clients has a home they'll love at a price they can afford!
