“I’ve always enjoyed teaching, mentoring and coaching,” Bell says. “I feel like it’s what I’ve been called to do. I’m super excited about my new role as sales leader of Ebby’s Irving | Las Colinas | Coppell Office. “I strongly believe that my way is not the only way. I’m more interested in learning about what an agent is comfortable doing and then helping them maximize the opportunities.” 

Born and raised in North Texas, Bell is a graduate of Texas Tech University. He and his wife Amy have three children and enjoy spending time boating, fishing, golfing and watching their children play sports.

“Jennifer brings a thorough understanding of all aspects of real estate, from marketing and lead generation to coaching agents and teams to reach their full potential,” Kelly says. “She is the ideal person to succeed Vivian Black, who has been an incredible leader of our Preston Keller Office for many years.”

Adds Rosson, “We are very excited to welcome Jennifer to her new role with our Preston Keller Office and we are so grateful for Vivian’s leadership and friendship over the years.”

A graduate of Louisiana State University, Young worked as a registered nurse before becoming a real estate agent in 2014. When she moved to Dallas from Louisiana her Realtor was Mike Harvey. Young says Harvey, with his enthusiasm for real estate, convinced her to become an agent. She joined The Harvey Team in 2014, and when the team moved to Ebby in 2015 she joined them in the Preston Keller Office.

“I knew I could learn so much from working with Mike and Pam Harvey,” Young says. “They are so widely admired and respected. Both Mike and Pam have been great mentors and so helpful to me over the years.”

Young says while learning the real estate business from Mike and Pam, she began to notice how much she also enjoys teaching and mentoring. 

“I’m a servant leader at heart,” she says. “As a former nurse, I love to take care of people and I get a lot of joy from watching others succeed. I’m excited about growing our Preston Keller Office to the next level and I am very much looking forward to working with each of our agents on their business plans and helping them achieve their goals.”

Young and her husband, Chris, are the proud parents of four children, ages 16 to 21. In her spare time, she enjoys spending time outdoors, volunteering in the community and cheering on the LSU Tigers. 

“I am honored and excited to take on this leadership role,” Young says. “I’m looking forward to continuing to build on our Preston Keller Office’s extraordinary success and growing our brand as the Ebby Halliday Companies celebrate 75 years of serving North Texas.”
