Kathy was born in Flushing, NY, like so many others from the NY Metropolitan Area. In fact, it is amazing how many people she meets in real estate or just socially that were also born in Flushing General Hospital.

Before real estate, Kathy had several interesting careers. The first was in the travel industry, as a Bi-Lingual Secretary for Air France, then a Flight Attendant for TWA International and an In-Flight Director of Customer Service (DCS) in the early days of the Boeing 747 Jumbo Jet. She got into sales as a Travel Agent in New York City handling group travel for large corporations and in the mid-70s, became a Hotel Sales Director.

Kathy moved to Boston just in time for the Blizzard of 1978, and landed in the new personal computer industry as a Computer Store Manager in Framingham, Massachusetts. Over the next 20+ years she worked for companies like Compaq Computer Corporation and Wang Laboratories among others and lived in Houston, TX, and the DC Metropolitan Area. When it was time for a change, Kathy moved to Delaware in 2000, obtained her real estate license, met her husband and business partner, Bill Bell, and the rest is their story.

Kathy is an Accredited Buyer Representative (ABR), a Seniors Real Estate Specialist (SRES®) and member of the Senior Advantage Real Estate Council (SAREC®). These organizations provide its members with valuable training, relevant information and frequent updates on important topics. She primarily works with active adults and buyers from outside the area, many of whom are buying vacation homes, second home or relocating to Delaware in anticipation of retirement.

Active Adults Realty was a pleasure to work with. Elliott Welan was our real estate agent. He took us to see both resale properties and new construction. We are from NJ and knew very little about the Lewes area. My wife and I truly felt that both Elliott and KATHY SPERL-BELL (owner) cared about us. We were directed to communities in Lewes where they believed we would fit in. I never felt pressured to “buy now” and never felt like we were just a commission to the company. I would absolutely recommend working with Active Adults Realty.

Kathy was a huge asset in assisting me with the purchase of my new construction home. She was a true advocate for me and my interests when dealing with the builder. In the end she helped me make some wonderful design choices in what felt like an overwhelming process. She is very detail oriented and ensured everything was address during our walk through. I would not buy or sell a home in Delaware with out Kathy! I highly recommend her!

When my husband and I decided to retire we never imagined we would find ourselves living in Lewes, DE. Because I planned to visit a niece in the area, I did some research on the internet about the amenities available for retirees near or in Lewes. One realtor's name was the obvious choice for our inquiries, Kathy Sperl-Bell. Her company was reaching out to people like us who needed more than just a realtor, we needed a professional with experience in advising us in this major life changing event. After a lengthy conversation she narrowed and defined our search, we soon bought property and built our home with her many suggestions regarding construction modifications for ease in "aging in place." Kathy continued to stay by our side through the entire process until the day of settlement. With her guidance and attention each step of the way this major transition was far more enjoyable and less stressful than we were anticipating. We highly recommend Kathy Sperl-Bell for your relocation realtor.
