Rick Bell is Landmark Custom Homes.
Rick has been building beautiful custom homes for more than 25 years across some of South Florida’s finest communities, including Parkland, Southwest Ranches and Coral Springs. He founded Landmark Custom Homes with the goal of creating a construction-management team that specializes in providing customers with extraordinary personal service and unparalleled communication. This focus allows Landmark Custom Homes to deliver superior-quality custom homes built by a team of the industry’s finest craftsmen.
Rick serves as the company’s president and oversees every detail of the building process with a team of experienced project managers, who share his hands-on approach. It’s this personal touch and depth of knowledge that sets apart Landmark Custom Homes and distinguishes Rick as one of South Florida’s most-successful custom homebuilders.
Rick grew up in the custom-homebuilding business, working with his father, Gerald Bell, a well-respected and very successful South Florida homebuilder. That experience fueled Rick’s passion and led to his wholehearted commitment to learn the business inside and out.
“It gave me a huge leg up,” says Rick, who earned a Bachelor of Science degree in building construction at the University of Florida. “I gained great insight into what to do and what to avoid.” Rick’s vision, creativity and love for homebuilding carried over to Landmark Custom Homes. A Florida-certified building contractor, he has the ability to construct a home in any architectural style, yet his greatest asset is intangible – he listens.
From the initial meeting with owners, through the bidding and financing processes and the move-in, Rick is ever present to advise, supervise and ensure that a home is exactly what the owners envisioned. He encourages open communication and positively addresses any issues that arise, even anticipating before they happen.
“It’s a process,” explains Rick, in his usual down-to-earth manner, “and I’m in constant contact with the owners to answer their questions and keep them up to date on the progress of their home. When it’s finished, I love seeing their reaction – the wow, as their faces light up.”
He knows firsthand the joy of living in a Landmark Custom Homes-built home, as Rick has custom built several of his personal residences to share the custom-home experience with his wife, Audrey, and their three children. In his spare time, Rick enjoys winter sports, being a pilot, and reading autobiographies of world leaders.
“Rick gives you his time, so the home gets built the way you want. Working with Rick makes custom homebuilding painless.” — Charlie Boyd, client
