Terri Bell

Vice President of Business Development

About Teri: Interested in fitness & the outdoors including running, hiking, skiing, biking

Born in Amarillo, Texas, I left the panhandle behind and ventured to the big DFW Metroplex years ago where I got my start in multifamily as a leasing consultant for Pinnacle (now Cushman & Wakefield). After 7 years on site, I moved to the supplier side of the business and never looked back. Believe it or not, I have been providing flooring solutions for my clients for nearly 17 years. The past 10 years coincide with my move north to the mountains and to Arbor. In 2021, I will celebrate 10 years as a Denver resident and as a member of a great team here at Arbor. Blessed with 2 amazing kids and 3 crazy dogs, I am an outdoors junky who is busy living every day to the fullest.
