The Bellings Brothers are third generation Realtors and San Francisco natives. Aaron and Michael were born and raised in San Francisco and have always had a passion for sales, people, real estate, and all things San Francisco. They created their team just 5 years ago and finished in the top 20% of all Realtors in their first year in the business. They have quickly escalated to consistent top 1% producers in San Francisco and are two of the youngest Top Producers in Vanguard Properties history. In 2017, Aaron and Michael collectively sold over 40 properties and $55m in sales volume and continue to raise the bar for themselves every year. With backgrounds in finance and marketing, they bring a unique skill set to the business and strive to bring an unparalleled level of expertise, passion, and custom approaches to each transaction. Aaron and Michael consistently rank in the top 1% of all San Francisco Realtors and were named the “2017 Rising Stars” in Bay Area Real Estate by San Francisco Magazine, Silicon Valley Magazine, and Luxury Marketing Council.
Aaron comes from a family with over 50 years of real estate experience, representing buyers, sellers and developers. If you are looking for a new home, Aaron will do all that is needed for you to use your time wisely to locate an ideal property and negotiate the best possible deal. If you are selling your home – perhaps your most valuable asset – Aaron will recommend and implement the most effective strategy for bringing buyers to the table. He thrives in competitive sales environments and relishes the opportunity to work with buyers and sellers of all backgrounds. With a keen eye for real estate, all of the tools for success Vanguard Properties provides, and a drive to do everything possible for his clients, Aaron works hard for all of his clients so they know everything will be done efficiently and accurately the first time.
Aaron is a Bay Area native, born and raised in both San Francisco and Marin County. He has loved everything Bay Area for as long as he can remember. Attending Giants games at Candlestick Park (and now at AT&T Park), watching the Blue Angels on the Marina Green, and sampling the local cuisine in the eclectic neighborhoods San Francisco has to offer are just a few of his favorite past times. He also enjoys skiing in Tahoe, photography, and basketball. Although Aaron loves to travel, the best city in the world is right in his backyard and he can’t imagine living or working anywhere else.
After graduating with honors from St. Ignatius College Prep in San Francisco’s Sunset district, Aaron graduated Cum Laude from Santa Clara University while receiving his BS in Finance and minor in Operations Management. Upon graduation, Aaron joined AT&T as a manager and thrived as a sales leader, mentor, and motivator for the entire Bay Area. He consistently ranked in the Top 10 in Northern California for sales achievement and goal attainment while breaking records in nearly every metric at multiple locations. Despite this, Aaron wanted to take his career to the next level.
Utilizing his love of sales, background in Finance, and desire to be the best in real estate, he has teamed up with his brother Michael to join the ranks of some of the city’s finest real estate professionals at Vanguard Properties. Aaron consistently ranks in the top 1% of all San Francisco Realtors and was named the 2017 Rising Star in Bay Area Real Estate by San Francisco Magazine and Luxury Marketing Council.
As a third generation Real Estate Agent, Michael makes it his goal to provide a level of expertise, professionalism and consistency in all of his transactions. He works around the clock to ensure that every client receives the personal attention and dedication needed to ensure efficient and successful deals with a high level of integrity. Michael offers clients an unparalleled level of service, communication and commitment whether they are experienced or first time home buyers and sellers. And at the end of the day, finding the perfect home for each individual or family is Michael’s first and foremost priority.
At a young age, Michael became passionate about Real Estate after traveling on weekly Tuesday Tours and Sunday Open Houses with his father. As a San Francisco native, he knew that the city by the bay would be the ultimate destination point to embark on his Real Estate career. Growing up in San Francisco and Marin County, Michael brings knowledge, expertise, and an unbridled passion for both sides of the bay. Whether it is eating at a cafe in Sausalito overlooking the skyline, attending a Giants game at AT&T Park, or taking a walk through Golden Gate Park, you will never meet anyone who is more enthusiastic about all things Bay Area.
After graduating with honors from St. Ignatius College Preparatory in the Sunset District of San Francisco, Michael excelled at Business Marketing and Communication while graduating Magna Cum Laude in the top 10 percent of his class at the University of Southern California (USC).
Michael accepted a job at the Target Corporation at the West Coast headquarters in Pasadena, CA and became one of the youngest executive managers. Utilizing leadership and management skills, Michael lead a team of over 300 team members and consistently exceeded sales goals. Although he knew that the Target Corporation was only a temporary destination before entering into the Real Estate field, his experiences provided him with the consummate meaning of what it takes to work hard and put in the long hours necessary for success.
Michael left the corporate world deciding it was time to pursue his dreams of starting in the real estate industry and creating a collaborative team with his brother, Aaron. Bellings Brothers Real Estate is a passionate, knowledgeable team that always puts their clients’ interests first and strives to provide a smooth and stress-free experience for every client. The team has an unmatched enthusiasm and work ethic and is ready to work for you. Michael consistently ranks in the top 1% of all San Francisco Realtors and was named the 2017 Rising Star in Bay Area Real Estate by San Francisco Magazine and Luxury Marketing Council.
Mila Gelman brings over 15 years of experience in the real estate industry to work with the Bellings Brothers team and their clients. Early in her career, Mila was engaged in selling real estate, but also in providing oversight and training to newer agents at Vanguard’s Castro office, formerly Herth Real Estate. Her extensive experience and high standards in client services made her a perfect fit for the Bellings Brothers team, where her dedication to serving clients’ best interests is readily apparent. Her friendly disposition, commitment to consistent communication, attention to detail, and knowledge gained from years in the business help to create a sense of confidence and ease during all kinds of real estate transactions.
A San Francisco resident since 1990, Mila has enjoyed her experiences, personal and professional, with many communities and groups. She first came to San Francisco inspired by her studies in the martial arts, and body movement practices continue to inform and inspire her personal development. However, her favorite memories were made while raising her son in San Francisco during which she spent many hours in the local parks, botanical gardens, and at every soccer field in the city!
Mila is passionate about being of service and is active as a volunteer, donor, and fundraiser with a number of local organizations, many oriented towards helping those in disadvantaged circumstances, and others to the beautification of our city. Mila spends her time in SF enjoying yoga, salsa dancing, and frequenting the many beautiful parks around the city.
