VICKIE GASKILL » CPM®, MPM®, RMP®, ARM®, Owner/Broker
My career in property management began over 30 years ago. Initially, I owned a carpet cleaning business that serviced the property management industry. I came to work for Bell-Anderson & Assoc., LLC, AMO® in May of 1986, first as a bookkeeper, then a property manager, and now an owner. In September of 2002, my husband, Tim, and I purchased Bell-Anderson.
I have had the opportunity during my career to manage homeowner's associations, single family dwellings, small multi-family complexes and a few commercial properties. I have earned four professional property management designations (MPM®, CPM®, RMP®, and ARM®). I serve as an instructor on the national faculty for the Institute of Real Estate Management (IREM®) and the National Association of Residential Property Managers (NARPM®). In 2010 I had the distinct honor of serving as the National President for NARPM®.
In January of 2008, a very good friend, Steve Barber, CPM®, and I wrote a book that was published by the Institute of Real Estate Management (IREM®). Titled: Community Associations: A Guide to Successful Management, the book is designed to be a reference source for those who manage and or have a leadership position with community associations. In October of 2008, Steve and I were inducted into IREM®’s Academy of Authors.
Oftentimes I have the opportunity to go out into the community and assist others with their real estate management needs. As an owner of Bell-Anderson and Associates, LLC, AMO® I will assure all that come in contact with our company the best in professional property management as well as the best customer service that we can possibly offer. Give us a call if you are looking for professional property management services.
CARRIE SNYDER » MPM®, RMP®, ARM®, CFO
I have been with Bell-Anderson for 19 years.
I have done everything from answering the phones, showing properties to paying the bills. Up until recently I managed all the small apartment buildings that Bell-Anderson has on contract. These are now being managed by Adriana Gomez Madrid. Adriana is going to do a great job at managing the apartments and working with the owners that I have worked with for so many years. As I have been training Adriana to take over the apartment management, I have taken over Bell-Anderson’s corporate bookkeeping as well as learning all the ins and outs of the ever-evolving world of property management from my mentor and the Bell-Anderson owner, Vickie Gaskill.
Vickie is slowly transitioning into retirement. If anyone knows Vickie they know that she will never fully retire. She is such a wealth of information we will rely on her for a long time to come. I am very excited about the new places I am going with Bell-Anderson and can’t wait to see what the future holds.
When I am not at the office I thoroughly enjoy spending time with my 3 kids and Fiancé. We love to be outside enjoying the beautiful state we live in.
I have a true passion when it comes to managing rental properties so whether you have one or many please consider Bell-Anderson & Associates, LLC for your management needs.

For over 25 years my wife and I managed multi-family communities in California and Washington when in 2002, my wife said she wanted to retire and being a good husband, I agreed. In 2003, I joined the family of Bell-Anderson and found it to be an exceptional family, one that is invigorating, challenging and oh what a ball to work for. With the best owner ever, I, along with the other family members, have learned a lot that has enhanced our knowledge so that we can help our communities thrive when the economy is good or bad.
When I am not working, my wife and I do a lot of work with charities such as the American Cancer Association, American Heart Association, MS, CF Foundations just a name a few. We also keep in touch with our three children, eighteen grand-children and three great grand-children via the internet and when the opportunity arises, visit with them here or back in Illinois and Kentucky.
STEPHANIE DURHAM » CMCA®, Community Association Manager
I was born and raised in Seattle, however I left the great Northwest in the early 90's, returning 3 years ago. Boy, a lot sure has changed! I am happy to be back in the Seattle area as it is a great place to raise a family. While living in Southern California, I started my Career in the Real Estate industry as a Realtor specializing in multi-family investments and first time home-buyers. I earned my Washington State Mortgage Brokers license in '06. I have always been fascinated with real estate and finance. Deciding to work outside my home led me to Bell Anderson. I am looking forward to learning the Property Management industry and have found a good teacher: Vickie Gaskill is the best! I am a firm believer that knowledge is power. I recently finished a pretty intense Property Manager's class giving my career a great start. I'm looking forward to working with the Bell-Anderson team and you for many years to come!

GAYLE DUFF » CMCA®, Community Association Manager
I have been an Association Manager at Bell Anderson for over five years. In 2012 I became a CMCA, Certified Manager of Community Associations. I have continued to expand my knowledge of this exciting industry by taking classes, seminars and developing relationships with other members of the Community Association Institute. Working with Boards of both Condos and HOAS has given me an expanded knowledge of Association Management as well. I have met and worked with some truly inspiring board members. I value their time and service and want to do the very best I can to make their job productive and fulfilling. Notice I didn’t say easy, because this work is not easy. I know how hard these members work to serve their communities. The work can get tough and messy but, as I tell my granddaughter when we’re baking together, sometimes you have to make a mess to make something delicious.
Although I have lived in many parts of the United States as a child of the Navy, I have always called the Pacific Northwest “Home Sweet Home”. My husband Greg and I, having raised our children have now settled into our dream home in the Auburn Black Diamond area. We are fortunate to have our grandchildren nearby and yes, I am the typical Grandma - they are perfect and can have whatever they want. We spent enough years being the tough guys with our kids!
If you are a Board member or a member of a community I work with, thank you so much for allowing me to serve as your Association Manager and for choosing Bell-Anderson. If you are looking for a great company for your Association please know that I understand you are not just another association. You are a community of family homes that are worth investing time and talent in, both yours and mine.

SHANNON PATTERSON » Community Association Manager
I worked for Bell-Anderson roughly 15 years ago and now I’m back for round two. I really enjoy working for Vickie, who has taught me so much, not only in property management, but in life. Now, working for Jen it appears to be just as fruitful. I am excited to see what this time around brings. I am surprised how many things have changed in the industry over the years and just as surprised how many things have not. I will soon be earning my CMCA again and will look forward to as much continued education as I can get, in order to better serve our Condo/HOA owners.
I have four daughters one still at home and twin grandchildren (a boy and a girl). When I am not working, I volunteer for a non-profit organization and I enjoy spending time with family and friends. I also enjoy road trips, especially with great scenery. Bell-Anderson has a motto of “Our family serving yours ” which is taken extremely seriously. If you are in need of property management, with a lot of heart, Bell-Anderson is the way to go.
HEIDI CARRELL » Front Office Coordinator
I started at Bell-Anderson in January 2018 after moving to Washington from Oregon as a newlywed. Although new to the property management business, I have worked in receptionist positions since graduating from George Fox University with a Bachelor of Arts in Music in 2014 and I am thoroughly enjoying learning in a new field. I love the opportunity that working out front gives me, to be able to interact with people and give them a positive experience with our business. Since starting here, I have felt so at home with the company, and I want to spread that warmth as we help you find your new home with us!
Outside the office, I can usually be found spending time with my husband or pursuing creative projects. Besides keeping a day job, I have extensive experience volunteering and performing with theaters back in Oregon.
