About West Los Angeles Real Estate Agent Belle Tsai


Born into a real estate family in Los Angeles, for over 20 years Belle has honed her skills in all facets of the industry: residential, commercial, construction, development, property management, investment. Fluent in Mandarin, she lived for a time in Beijing and Taiwan where she furthered her real estate experience.

In 2001 she decided to move back to the US to concentrate on residential homes within the neighborhoods and culture she grew up in. After working alongside a major listing agent in Malibu and the Pacific Palisades, she joined Sotheby's International Realty where she could focus on assisting buyers.

Recognizing that every transaction is unique, she has the innate tools to handle the diverse criteria and demands of each. 92% of buyers begin their home search online, and 98% of them will use a realtor. Real estate transactions have critical repercussions on the lives of the parties and Belle knows how much buyers depend on their realtor. She enjoys assisting first time home buyers, patiently arming them with abundant market information she develops with Sotheby's so they can make informed decisions.


There are basically three types of buyer's agents. One is a geographic specialist who knows well a limited area. Another type shops homes anywhere and takes any and all clients since they can be shoe-horned into the realtor's vast horizon.

Belle subscribes to the rarer category: a personal services realtor who favors quality over quantity. She limits the number of her clients at any given moment so as to provide each a concierge-style experience. You expect better service at a boutique than at a chain store and real estate is no different. Unlike many well-known names, she does not rely on a team of agents and assistants who are often new and inexperienced.

Her temperament, personal touch, and commitment to representing her clients separate her from the pack. You hire Belle, you get Belle, not a brand name.


Being a strong advocate for clients is her driving force. Relentlessly representing their best interests, she employs a straightforward style and passionate approach to achieving their goals -- two of the reasons she is recognized as a master negotiator.

She prides herself on not simply sealing the deal but only after ensuring it's the right fit for her client. Hands-on and people-focused Belle builds long-term relationships based on a foundation of trust. The strongest testaments to her skill are the long-term relationships she builds with each client and their families.


In her words, "Selling real estate is my career, not a hobby or a second income. I love my job and love going to work every day."

Belle is married to a Los Angeles based mortgage broker. Both are passionate travelers and love to pursue adventures into the natural world in exotic locations.She enjoys traveling overseas to meet and learn about people from all corners of the world. An extension of the joy is serving a diverse clientele here.

In her downtime on the West Side, she's trying new restaurants, going to yoga and soul cycle, playing "Words With Friends", and rooting for the USC football team with her niece and nephews.
