Skillful negotiations, comprehensive market knowledge and a relentless work ethic are the hallmarks of Belle Trankle’s success. A Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist an industry veteran, Belle started out on the commercial side working for a developer in Beverly Hills, and then for a New York based developer in Hollywood, California where she worked on a team managing and leasing two of the most iconic buildings at Hollywood and Vine.
Belle’s affinity for real estate began at a much earlier age. “It’s what I know, it’s in my DNA,” she explains. As a child, her grandfather used to take her and her younger brother to his investment properties in Los Angeles on the weekends. “Everyone always needs a place to live,” she would hear him say. “You go to work and you come home.” Thus, what began as a fascination with historic properties, the Tudors, Bungalows and Craftsman she toured as a child quickly grew into her life’s work, and set her heart on fire with a passion for matching people with homes and properties that meet their needs.
“I am passionate about uniting people with properties that connect their dreams to their own unique lifestyle,” says Belle. Today, she is the “go-to” agent for loyal clientele across the Metroplex, stretching from McKinney and Frisco to Uptown and White Rock Lake, and all the way to Paris, Texas. Belle lives in Hollywood Heights where she fittingly lives in a 1926 Tudor situated in one the most historic neighborhoods in Lakewood.
Belle’s reputation for keeping her finger on the pulse of what is happening in the market, stems from her strong brand network, and ability to creatively market and sell properties in some of Dallas’ most prestigious neighborhoods. “My goal is to get you maximum value for your property with minimum hassles. I understand that buying and selling can be an emotional experience, and I always set out to be the calming force of every transaction,” she explains.
It’s a total commitment to helping people, whether that be achieving their real estate goals or finding a neighborhood that suits their lifestyle. More than an agent, she is a trusted advisor who uses every resource to build a solid strategy that markets for results, while making lifelong friends along the way.
Over the last decade, Belle spent her free time as a volunteer with Teammates for Kids, a Garth Brook’s charity, ProCamps® and Jason Witten Football Camp where she uses her ‘can do’ attitude assisting wherever needed. After 7 years of volunteering for these charities, she favors selling t-shirts and auction sales at these events to help raise funds for those in need.
An avid runner, Belle participates in half marathons and practices yoga to maintain a sense of peace and calm in her life. From selling real estate, to putting her heart and soul into giving back, Belle continues to raise the bar professionally, but says it’s her 26 year old daughter that is her greatest achievement to date. “She is the greatest joy in my life, and being a mom to her is one of my greatest accomplishments.
