Meet the Team

Marlene “M.A.” Bell

Team Leader, Realtor®

My name is Marlene. A. Bell, but you can call me M.A.! Helping families navigate the housing market to better their lives is what I do. I guess you could say real estate runs through my veins! In 1988, my first full year as an agent, I sold $4 million in property. Since then, I have ranked in the top 1% of agents nationwide.

I believe there is nothing quite as special and unique as Southeast Missouri. With my extensive network and understanding of local education, cultural offerings, and location options, I am here to connect you with your dream home.

My amazing support system includes my husband, three daughters, five grandchildren, and team. It’s because of them I am able to do what I love every single day – Which is offering world-class service and commitment to my clients!

Dawnya Harris

Team Manager, Broker Salesperson

My name is Dawnya Harris, and I’ve been a licensed realtor with The M.A. Bell Group since 2015! I know how important it is to love the place you live, and I’ve lived in and loved Southeast Missouri all my life.

My role with The M.A. Bell Group is managing the real estate transaction. This means that our clients have a dedicated professional in their corner, making every part of the transaction easier!

I value the trust our clients place in me, and my number one goal is to exceed their expectations. I look forward to working with you and doing just that!

Lauren Crawford


My name is Lauren Crawford, and I was born and raised in Oran, Missouri.

I’ve just recently joined The M.A. Bell Group, bringing with me years of experience in the insurance business. This experience allowed me to work with the people of Southeast Missouri to secure for them the greatest satisfaction and continue to develop business relationships. I apply these same talents daily with each real estate transaction, negotiating the best deals out there for my clients.

I am honored to be working with this talented, hardworking group and truly can’t wait to treat the people of Southeast Missouri like family.

Kaci Self


As a realtor, I am dedicated to helping my clients find their dream home or investment property. With a background in customer service, a native of Southeast Missouri, and a passion for real estate, I am committed to providing excellent service and a seamless buying or selling experience.

I have a strong understanding of the local market and stay up-to-date on industry trends to ensure that my clients are well-informed throughout the process. I am skilled at negotiating and strive to get the best deal for my clients.

In my free time, I enjoy exploring Cape and surrounding areas, and all that it has to offer. I am also a mom to three very busy kids who are active in activities in Cape Girardeau. I also enjoy volunteering with local charities and am actively involved in my community.

I would be honored to assist you with your real estate needs and look forward to working with you.
