Welcome, Michell Bellamy

Welcome, Michell to Coldwell Banker D’Ann Harper, REALTORS®!

Some of the life lessons embedded into me at a very young age were always be honest, treat everyone with respect, and whatever job you do,  however big or small – give it your absolute best!  My next life lessons came over the period of 26 years when I was given the opportunity to learn, live, and love the United States Air Force core values and way of life. Integrity- First, Service Before Self, and Excellence in All We Do. During this time I was a detail-oriented professional with expertise in management, multitasking, and leading multiple projects.

I graduated from the top-rated Champions School of Real Estate®, and teamed with the prestigious award winning Coldwell Banker D’Ann Harper, REALTORS® who pride themselves in motivating and training each of their agents. I will navigate you through each step whether you are looking to buy your first home or selling an existing home.

There’s very few guarantees in life but as your realtor, I can guarantee I will navigate your homes transaction with integrity, your needs will always be put first, and I will always do my best. I’ll work harder so you don’t have to. Contact me today so we can get started.

Heather Trevilion – New Braunfels Office

Heather is proud to be a Native Texan. She has a love for all things “real estate” which is probably due her childhood. Her father worked in a management position and consequently, her family moved at least every 2 years… which added up to over 20 moves by the time she was in High School. During this period, she learned the value of buying the right home not just for the present, but for the future. Her experience can help both Buyers and Sellers.

She has been married to her husband, John, for over 13 years and they have two boys. One of her goals as a mother is to be a good example to her children. Therefore, she believes in teaching them to care for others and give back to their community. Currently Heather is PTA Secretary for Hoffmann Lane Elementary and is very active in other activities such as Diverse Abilities Day, Fall/Spring Service Projects and Youth Sports Organizations. She has a heart for our Senior Citizens and volunteers with Meals on Wheels and Hope Hospice Thrift Store, when time permits. This passion has lead her to work toward attaining a Senior Real Estate Specialist (SRES) Designation. Three words to best describe Heather would be…Honest, Helpful and Happy.
