Bella Casa - McMinnville
207 Northeast 19th Street
McMinnville, Oregon 97128

Growing up in the mountains surrounding Missoula, Montana, I developed a passion for historical architecture at an early age, beginning with a deep affinity for crooked ghost towns and architectural casualties of the mining boom. After living abroad and eloping in a walnut orchard in the south of France, I moved to Oregon with my husband, Timothy, in 2010. There, I further pursued my passion through working in the design/remodel field in Portland, which ultimately led me to my calling as a real estate broker. In early 2014, my husband and I purchased a dilapidated 1908 bungalow in St. Johns, and spent the next several years restoring it from top to bottom. In 2016 we sold our little bungalow and purchased our next project/home in McMinnville, Oregon, where we currently reside with our daughter Juniper, dog Winston, and cat Oscar. We absolutely love life in Yamhill County. Our ultimate goal is to build an eco-friendly home and hobby farm (with a small vineyard, of course) on the outskirts of McMinnville.

My experience in design and restoration has given me a distinct advantage as an agent. I pride myself in the hard work and dedication that I provide for all of my clients, whether they are selling a multi million dollar estate, or purchasing their first home. For sellers, I am an extremely valuable resource for home staging consultation, and have realized increases of 17% in sales prices for my clients. For buyers, I go above and beyond to find the perfect home, staying on top of the market to make sure my clients are always first in line. Having guided many clients through these processes as well as experiencing them first hand, my clients can rest assured that they are in great hands when they choose to work with me. Give me a call anytime, let’s grab a coffee and talk real estate!!!

Client Review (January 26, 2018)

"I met Caitlin through a friend when I was just beginning the process of buying my first house. She answered many of my questions and really put me at ease. As a single home buyer, it was also really nice to have her second opinion on different spaces, repair prospects and future value. She was just  the right level of persistent to keep things moving forward and really put the time in to search for houses that met my needs. When we found The One, she was very resourceful in looking into potential issues and was a great negotiator, which was probably helped by her recent experience in the Portland market. Offers on the house were very competitive and Caitlin was able to advise me on how to make my offer as attractive as possible...and after some negotiating, it was accepted! The house closed really fast and she was very responsive, knowledgeable and efficient with signing documents, arranging (and attending!) the inspection and finishing things off at the title company. I always felt like a 100% priority client when working with Caitlin, even as a financially restricted first-time buyer. It was also really nice to have someone to call with all kinds of questions, from quotes on repairs, to real estate values next to schools, to financing options, to "vibes." I had a great experience buying my first home and couldn't recommend Caitlin more highly to buyers of all kinds."

Bought and sold a Single Family home in 2018 for approximately $525K in Mcminnville, OR.
Caitlin helped us stage our house to get it ready to sell and then found the perfect home for us afterwards. She is a skilled negotiator that is always available to answer any questions and her attention to detail made sure everything would be processed smoothly. She took the time to check in with us after our move to see if we needed anything and to make sure everything was going well. We highly recommend listing with Caitlin and will use her when we are ready to sell and buy again.

Bought a Single Family home in 2018 for approximately $275K in West Salem, Salem, OR.
From the beginning to the end of our house hunt, Caitlin was amazing every step of the way. She made us feel like she was one hundred percent invested every single day. She was open and honest with us about the process and helped us to find exactly what we needed in a house and it was not easy! I can't say enough great things about her! We just bought our first home and knew next to nothing about the process and she walked us through everything. She answered every question I ever had and never made me feel pressured or like I was wasting her time.I highly recommend Caitlin!

Bought a Single Family home in 2018 for approximately $500K in St.Johns, Portland, OR.
Extremely knowledgeable about the purchase of our home. Knew the area well, and was always able to answer questions we had about the property or negotiations with the sellers. She was flexible to our schedule and took the time to view each place we were interested in, without pressuring us along the way.

Showed home in 2015 in Brentwood-Darlington, Portland, OR 97206.
Caitlin was very responsive, driving us to new listings in the middle of the weekdays and showing homes on the weekends. She offered her opinions on homes we were looking at when requested. She followed up with me after the purchase to make sure everything was running smoothly.
