Happy International Women’s Day!
We are Chrissy and Mary: AKA Team Bella!
We are a women-owned real estate team who helps you buy your new home and sell your old one in Oregon and Washington.
We have been Team Bella for 3 years, but we have been family for the past 12 years.
I, (Chrissy) have mentored Mary since she was 14. Giving Mary the guidance she needed to move beyond her family chain of pain. Showing her how to create a life that she loves, while becoming the best version of herself.
When Mary decided to pursue her real estate career, she turned to me for guidance. I gave her tips and pointed her in the right direction but she wanted to shadow me, real-time.
At the moment, I was on sabbatical. Busy launching my soul-focused e-commerce store and writing my manuscripts about my journey from Trauma to Triumph.
Mary begged (literally begged 😂) me to train her in real estate sales. I was hesitant. I wasn't sure I wanted to return to the world of real estate. Plus, I didn't know exactly how to blend my soul-based focus with my real estate career.
As you know, I eventually returned to real estate.
In January 2019, Bella West Coast Properties | Real Estate with Soul and Team Bella was born.
Mary and I are more than co-brokers. We are friends/family who team up to support our community with our #BellaSOULMission.
When I returned to real estate sales after a short break, I felt inspired to sell Real Estate with Soul.
The #BellaSOULMission was founded to support local schools and programs that help our neighbors in need.
I know first hand what it’s like to be a neighbor in need. I experienced extreme poverty (including homelessness) as a child/teen. My family and I depended on local programs to help with food, clothing, housing assistance, and other resources very frequently.
To pay it forward, I launched the #BellaSOULMission which supports our community in multiple ways:
Team Bella supports our local #BellaSOULHeros (teachers/school staff/first responders/emergency staff) by donating up to $1000 ($500 purchase and $500 sale) to their school/station/dept/etc, on their behalf.
Team Bella teams up with our #BellaSOULCommunity (buyers and sellers) and donates up to $500 ($250 purchase and $250 sale) to a local charity or school, as selected by the buyer/seller.
It's an honor to be a woman-owned real estate team and to have the opportunity to partner with our community members to support our neighbors in need.
Thank you for choosing the real estate team that supports the community.
