KNOWLEDGE – EXPERIENCE – INTEGRITY
More than a decade ago the Bello sisters, Kenia and Odalys decided to combine their education and experience with their hard work ethic and offer it to the service of the very demanding and diverse real estate, land development and engineering/architectural design markets of South Florida.
- A company prepared to deliver outstanding service to its clients – both private sector and government entities.
- A company capable of handling projects of any size and complexity.
- A company where each job is prepared using cutting edge technology and in strict compliance with state and local regulations and standards.
During the years we have grown along with our city and our clientele. We have evolved as our profession has. We have acquired new technology for field data collection and processing, and we have refined our staff.
We have extended our services to a more comprehensive level, where each aspect of surveying is carefully mastered in order to fulfill and comply with the various needs at every stage of development. We will assist you in financing, design, permitting, construction, and occupancy as well as providing any mapping services you require. Initial boundary survey, topographic and tree survey, the plat or replat, construction steps and even further, the expert witness services in boundary disputes and area litigations in high end condominium properties. We do it all.
We have been honored to work with a highly prestigious clientele that includes Zoning/Land Use and Real Estate Attorneys, Engineering Consultants, Architects, Contractors and Land Developers. We feel very proud to consider ourselves part of the shape of the new Miami – as we are currently involved in underground utility work for mega projects such as the Brickell City Center by the Swire Company, the Downtown Doral by Codina, the Miami Skyrise by Berkowitz, the Pearl at Dadeland by Morgan Group and the new Jackson Health Systems complex at Doral.
We are highly rated, with a long history of excellent, accurate surveys produced with the latest technology.
Bello & Bello gets top marks in all of the many reasons to choose an experienced land surveyor:
We are industry experts. Benefiting from the experience and educational background of our Directors and qualified staff, we manage to never sacrifice quality and accuracy and yet still offer very competitive prices.
No worries about the quality of our product: Bello & Bello is your one stop place for surveying services. A high level of professionalism and care is applied to all of our survey maps, sketches, images and reports. Our products are generated on electronic media and fully compatible with the technology used by architects, design engineers and building contractors. Our comprehensive services are tailored to fit the demands of our clients and fulfill the needs of the end user of the survey work being provided.
From field to office, our work is fully insured and performed meeting and/or exceeding the minimum standards of practice set forth by the Board of Land Surveyors and Mappers.
We are on top of technological advances in our field and are always on the cutting edge of equipment and techniques. We keep ourselves informed and are able to re-tune our services to meet new standards and new requirements.
We keep records of all our work; therefore we can be called tomorrow or years from now for updated surveys or extended services. If we initially survey a vacant parcel for a real estate transaction, the new owner can call us at a later date for the additional services needed for rezone, design, subdivide and permit. We can also provide the following construction survey services: lay-out new structures and utilities, set elevations, provide certified documents for partial inspections, prepare As-Builts and Finals and assist you all the way up in the process until obtaining CO (Certificate of Occupancy) - whether the project consists of a new single house or a big residential or commercial complex with utility and infrastructure work.
Our proven reputation of successfully completed projects and satisfied clients says it ALL.
