I’d like to take this opportunity to introduce myself. My name is “Pook” Bellini and I’m a REALTOR® with HELEN ADAMS REALTY. I am licensed in South Carolina and specialize in our beautiful Sun City Carolina Lakes community. Prior to moving to South Carolina, I was an active REALTOR® in the Scottsdale/Paradise Valley, Arizona area since 2005.
My husband and I moved here from Paradise Valley, Arizona, where we lived for 38 years, raised two great sons, and where I enjoyed 12 wonderful years of teaching first grade prior to starting my real estate career. Before moving to Arizona in 1976, we lived in my hometown, Ossining, New York. I taught second grade in Chappaqua, NY for 5 years, after attending the State University of NY at New Paltz and receiving a B.A. from Briarcliff College and a Masters Degree from Western Connecticut State College.
We first came to Carolina Lakes to visit friends in 2010 and we knew immediately that we loved the SCCL lifestyle. In 2012 we decided to purchase a home here, with the eventual goal of moving back to the east coast to be closer to family and to call SCCL home. For two years we made regular “visits” to our home until we moved here as permanent residents at the end of December 2014. We are thrilled to be a part of this community and are enjoying all the wonderful activities that brought us here. I currently serve on the Board of the Lancaster Animal Shelter Supporters (LASS) and am president of my neighborhood ("pod") of 110 homes. When time allows, I enjoy spending time in our fabulous Sun City Carolina Lakes pottery studio or kayaking at nearby lakes. Additionally, an avid walker and hiker, I love to wander the beautiful trails and walkways at SCCL... if you see me out there, please stop and say hello!
As a former elementary school educator, I bring the heart of a teacher to my real estate career and I am passionate about educating buyers and sellers as I guide them through the process of buying or selling a home. With this in mind, my goal as a REALTOR® is to provide exceptional service as a consultant, negotiator, and overseer of transactional details, and it is my hope that the relationship I form with clients will last for a lifetime.
As part of the HELEN ADAMS REALTY team, I am dedicated to helping you with all of your real estate needs. As one of the most respected real estate companies in the greater Charlotte area, including the South Carolina pan handle, HELEN ADAMS REALTY is committed to providing its clients with comprehensive marketing and technology services. If you are looking to downsize or move up, considering selling your current residence, or even if you just have a real estate related question, please contact me. I would love to have the opportunity to help you! I will combine my experience, enthusiasm, and hard work, along with the power of the HELEN ADAMS REALTY team, to exceed your expectations for exemplary service and professionalism in everything I do.
