  • ”Liz began her modeling career in 1982 becoming a very successful model and I always found working with her a real pleasure. A great model, scout, agent and mother Liz has always been very loving to her models, by leading them hand in hand along their modeling careers by making good use of her past modelling experience. The girls who she scouts and that she thoroughly grooms, all have an outstanding potential to become the next Canadian top models.”
    MARZIA BAVA - Why Not Models Milan
  • ”"Liz has been my mother agent for over thirteen years, and she has always held the title in that order: mother first and agent second. She has nurtured my passions, challenged my limits, and inspired my work ethic. At the same time, she has always respected when no was simply that: No. And still, she knew when to guide my sights to be set higher than what my eyes could see. This industry will take you incredible places if you let it, but it will also eat you up and spit you back out again if you don’t have necessary support to see you through it. Liz is that support. She knows the industry as a former model, understands what is important as a mother, and believes in your potential as an agent. She wears many hats and all of them will give you the shelter you need amidst the wondrous exposure to flourish in your career. Her insight and resources are limitless. To any parent looking for an agent for their child, or any model seeking their own representation, my recommendations for Lizbell Agency are unwavering. Because when you work with Liz, she’s not just on your side: she’s by your side. Always.””

  • ”I have known and worked with Liz Bell for over 20 years and have never met such a talented and professional mother agent in my entire career! Any one is blessed to be discovered and managed by her and her team!”
    Michaela Goddard Quesada - Former Vice President of Elite NY
  • ”The true testament of how important Liz Bell has been to my modeling career is that she’s the one agent I’ve stuck with for twenty years! She has helped guide my career and has been an incredible support since I began at 16 years old. Liz has a unique and valuable insight into the ins and outs of the fashion world that can only come from having been a high fashion model herself. And thanks to Liz’s help I am still going strong two decades later with both a modeling and an acting career. Liz and her agency consistently find the most promising Canadian talent and provide a great launching pad into the fashion and entertainment world.”
    RACHEL ROBERTS - MODEL & ACTRESS.
  • ”Liz, at her core, is a kind, nurturing and warm-hearted mother who cares deeply for her family and is passionate about environmentalism and animal preservation. Her ability to remain grounded in what matters most has given her an unparalleled approach in talent management—really, the dream for any model and their families. She is a constant amidst the ever-changing business. Her years of experience lend the necessary perspective in helping models make decisions that will be best for their careers and life goals. I often meet girls who don't have an active mother agent or even a mother agent at all, and I always feel like they're shooting in the dark when making decisions, in comparison to the foundation I have in Liz's experience and guidance. Liz's perspective is always dynamic and she is never afraid to confront and deal with what's at hand for the best interest of her models. There's been important moments in my career, wherein instead of Liz going back and forth on e-mails, before I know it, she's on the next flight to New York, or London, or Paris, taking care of business. I unreservedly recommend Liz Bell to any aspiring model and their families and can vouch for her tireless work ethic, unwavering loyalty, sensitivity, breadth of knowledge and well-connectedness in the fashion industry, necessary to help any model reach her or his full potential.”
    JANICE ALIDA - MODEL
  • ”Liz scouted my daughter Lisa, when she was just 13 years old. While it may have been her dream, as a mom I was a bit apprehensive. But from our first meeting at the agency, Liz’s warmth and compassion allayed my concerns. One thing in particular that she said has resonated with me all these years: “You only get to be a kid once, so don’t pass up on doing fun, kid stuff.” Liz treats her girls as if they were her own and is especially careful with whom she allows them to work. I’ve found that everyone we’ve met through modeling, both in Vancouver and internationally, holds Liz Bell in the highest regard; Not really much of a surprise though!”
    Marion Baronit - Model Lisa's Mum
  • ”Liz Bell has scouted and managed some of the most beautiful faces in Canada for over 25 years. Her experience as a model lends to the development and career management of the talent she scouts. Her professionalism and reputation in this business is highly respected not only in Canada but World-Wide. If you are scouted by Liz you are in the right hands. It has been a true pleasure for Ford to work with Liz Bell.”
    Natalie Smith - MILK Management London
  • ”"Liz scouted us at 17 and through her guidance we had the amazing experience of modelling Internationally in Milan, Sydney, Tokyo and New York. Through our travels we were able to come out of our painfully shy shells and become strong, confident women, which has carried us into our different career paths. Liz saw something in us we never saw and we wouldn't be who we are today without experiencing what we did."”
