Bella Casa Partners is the combined idea and effort of Scott Ford and Greg Soltis.
We created Bella Casa Partners to offer a unique approach to real estate representation, with two agents working full time to achieve your house objective.
We leverage our knowledge and experience in the fields of business, law, home renovation, and landscape design to offer unique services to our clients. We focus upon the individual objective of each client, in contrast to the unimaginative, stale "one size fits all" approach that is so often the norm in the real estate industry.
Although we sell and buy houses for our clients throughout Northern Virginia, we have a focused effort on the areas we know best - the communities were we live, Cameron Station & Overlook, both located in Alexandria, Virginia.
The Bella Casa Partners team also includes a support group through which we provide our clients:
See www.5242WinterView.com for information, photos, and a walkthrough video for this stunning home.
Our clients coined the term the "Bella Casa Partners Difference" to describe our approach to sell their houses. Simply put, we provide unique services that create greater value towards your house selling objective beyond what other agents offer.
Our approach to sell your house is fundamentally different from other agents in our investment of more time and effort, plus our own capital to achieve your specific objective. This investment is the foundation of our partnership with you.
We use a business-smart approach matched to your home and financial objective. We create opportunities to make your house a standout property in the mind of potential buyers versus the comparable houses on the market.
To accomplish this result, we develop, then execute a plan matched to each house to meet your objective, rather than to let “random chance” or “hope” for a buyer substitute for such a plan. Since each client's house and needs are different, we use a mix of services that is tailored to the features and condition of your house and your specific objective.
Our unique services include:

Bill & I were very fortunate to have you help us sell our house. You guys were a well-matched team for us and your approach meshed perfectly with what we hoped to accomplish. Thank you both for your guidance, professionalism and rolling up your sleeves to pitch in. You clearly rise above the sea of mediocrity in the real estate business. You helped us achieve our goals in selling our home with minimal pain and maximum gain. We'll always remember you for that and be thankful that you were there for us.

Scott and Greg provided us an unprecedented level of their time, effort, and investing their own capital in order to achieve the very aggressive schedule that we had established to both sell our house and then buy our new home. Their level of attention to detail in capturing what made our house attractive to the buyer was essential in a great offer. Scott and Greg's market knowledge, keen sense of negotiating skills, and practical approach made all the difference in helping us choose the right new home for us in a highly competitive market.
I would recommend Bella Casa Partners to anyone desiring professionalism, dedication, and loyalty to the customer during one of the most important financial transactions of a lifetime.

Under contract in zero days/2nd highest price for this TH model in 10+ years (since August 2006).
I was extremely fortunate to be the first success for Bella Casa Partners. I had known Greg and Scott for a few years prior to their launching this incredible business model they had told me about several times over morning coffee while our dogs played in Greg’s backyard. I had the opportunity to relocate with a new company to the Hampton Roads Area of Virginia. I approached Bella Casa Partners to sell my townhouse quickly and at a good price.
What ensued over the next few weeks still has me amazed and forever grateful. The Bella Casa approach is to partner with the seller and make the property really stand out in the market. From painting to landscaping, to new door hardware to ordering appliances, Bella Casa Partners did it all. I truly could not have done what they did by myself or at the costs involved, which in most cases there were not costs to me, but capital invested by Bella Casa Partners to help obtain a better sale result.
They sold my home in 2 weeks and at the top of the market in my area. I honestly cannot say enough about Bella Casa Partners. It was the absolute best home selling process I have ever been through and this was the eighth home I have sold. Thank you Greg and Scott for not only being great friends but for developing a creative and successful business model.

When Jim & I were looking for a home, we thought we'd have to settle for the "average" buying experience; finding a home that needed work and we'd eventually get around to making it our own. Thankfully, we found Bella Casa Partners instead! Once we saw the fantastic remodel they were able to accomplish on a Cameron Station townhouse they were selling, we immediately knew we had to get the home the first day it was on the market.
We are just so thankful we are able to reap the benefits not only of their beautiful design choices and attention to detail, but they also made the purchase experience very easy. We highly recommend their services for both remodeling and selling or buying a home!
Jim & Elizabeth, Cameron Station Community (Alexandria)
Bella Casa Partners represented my wife and I as first time home sellers. Our situation was challenging, but very common: Two working parents, with two children under the age of 3, two dogs, moving out of state, and a house that needed much hard work prior to listing in order to obtain a good market reaction. Scott and Greg felt like more than our agents, advisors, and even friends. They felt like family. They did an evaluation of our home and had easy to implement recommendations that would enhance the overall look and feel of the home. They also recommended larger scale projects that required an investment on our part. Greg and Scott designed and managed these projects with their contractor team at a lower cost with better results than we thought possible.
One of the greatest benefits of working with Bella Casa Partners is that they take ownership of the listing. They invest their time and money to make the home as appealing and marketable as possible.
Scott and Greg have complimentary skills that make their partnership truly unique. Most of all, they know the market and only set realistic expectations. The end result was an 18-day listing and our home selling at the highest price for its model in almost 10 years. We cannot thank Bella Casa Partners enough, true advisors, partners, and friends.

Scott and Greg helped me realize my dream of finding a city home in Overlook. After using a lazy realtor who allowed my first house to fall through, my lease was up and I needed a home fast. Not only did they find me the perfect house in the perfect neighborhood, they linked me with a seller before the house came on the market. Since they are a two agent team, they were able to split up, represent me as the buyer and the seller, and get the right deal done for both parties. Then they stuck with me after I purchased the home to coordinate efforts with their design and contractor team to implement my vision both inside and outside the house. They took the time to listen to what I wanted, then offered suggestions to make it better! I have a brand new dream kitchen, updated bathrooms, new landscaping, new paint throughout the house, and many amazing details in my dream home. Working with them has far exceeded my expectations of what you could expect from a realtor when buying or selling a house. They have put to shame each previous realtor I worked with.
Their work and commitment to clients is truly amazing. They work with the seller to update the house to make it look its best—this could include improving or replacing fixtures, landscaping, flooring, or even tile work. They not only dedicate more time and effort than other realtors, they even invest their own capital to make your house ready for sale—what other realtors do that? For a seller, they take the guesswork out of what buyers are looking for. As a buyer, I’ve seen first-hand how they dedicate the same effort and attention to detail to help you find the right house, then make it your home, as they do when working with sellers.
I wholeheartedly recommend using Bella Casa Partners when buying your next home or selling your house!
Anne-Marie, Overlook Community (Alexandria)
My wife and I hired Bella Casa Partners in January 2015 to sell our home in Cameron Station and to find us a new home in McLean. Our townhouse had been rented for five years, so it needed work in order to sell. We also wanted to list the house by March, which was an aggressive schedule given the work we knew needed to be done.
We were attracted by their business model of creating more value for their customers than traditional real estate agents through the unique services they offer. Scott and Greg listened to our objective, then presented a plan to apply the work that needed to be done to achieve a sale price $30K more than the prior year average for our townhouse model.
We often wondered what real estate agents actually do for their commission. After seeing their services and investment of time and their own capital to improve our house, we know that Scott and Greg do far more than offered by other agents. They earned every penny of their commission.
Scott and Greg bring unique skills to the table, including knowledge of legal, contracting, home renovation, landscaping, and many other important insights rarely found in a real estate agent. They also got their hands dirty, literally speaking, working on projects to improve our house. Scott and Greg work very well together as a team. They supported us in every way from contractor selection, to managing the contractor work, to making excellent design choices, to actually working both inside and outside the house to make sure we presented an impeccable product to the market.
Our house looked so beautiful when we were done, my wife almost did not want to sell it! But we did, in one day, with two full price offers for us to choose!
We then immediately shifted into buyer mode and were able to find a house we love within one month. Scott and Greg were very thorough in the buying process as well. They helped us "kick the tires" of all the houses we saw using their unique skill sets to give us insight into the condition of each house and the cost of certain house features. They also helped us with a kitchen and Master Bathroom renovation after purchase using their design and contractor knowledge, which helped make the house into our home.
Overall, it was a great experience of selling and then buying a home. Both transactions are very stressful, but Scott and Greg lessened that stress with their planning and attention to detail. Based upon our experience, we recommend anyone looking to sell or buy a house talk with Scott and Greg to see how they can help you as they did for us.

Bella Casa Partners offers a unique approach to real estate services with an individual focus upon your objective.
We partner with you to achieve your house objective by investing more time, effort, and our own money than other real estate agents.
Our specialized services and attention to detail ensure that our houses present with maximum visual impact to give
our clients a higher sale price in fewer days than comparable houses for sale in the same community.
Greg and Scott are exceptional real estate agents. Having bought and sold four houses in the Washington, DC area, we can say without question they are the best agents we have ever used.
Our house had the only unfinished basement in our city home community. Despite this impediment and having several other city homes listed for sale in the community, including on our street, Greg and Scott developed a comprehensive business plan to make our house the clear choice for potential buyers. Our house looked far superior to the other houses, both in the online photos and in-person. Through their hard work, we obtained a sale price that gave us a higher net result than the other city homes for sale in one-third less time.
Greg and Scott also took much of the worry out of the sale process. They helped reduce the stress associated with selling our house because we understood and had confidence in the plan they developed to sell our house. Our confidence was well rewarded with the sale result we achieved.
We truly believe no other agents could have achieved these results. Greg and Scott have an approach that is innovative in the amount of time, effort, and their own money they will invest to make your house present at its best to the market. When Greg and Scott say they “partner” with clients to achieve your objective, they do so in a manner unlike any agent, with excellent results from that partnership.

We could not have picked a better agent to sell our house than Bella Casa Partners. Greg and Scott started by listening to us discuss what we wanted from selling our house, then created a thorough business plan to achieve the best possible sale result. No other agent would have spent the time and effort – and their own money – to prepare our house as did Greg and Scott. Our house looked great in the photos due to Bella Casa’s design ideas and focus on details.
We had four couples see the house the first day, even though it was a brutally cold February weekend. We listed the house on a Friday and by Monday had full price offer, which was an eight-year high sale price. In contrast, an end unit of our TH listed for sale in our community a few days before our house for the same price took nearly five months longer to sell for $29K less than our house. We owe that difference to Bella Casa Partners, through their professionalism, business-based approach, and dedication to our goal. Greg and Scott have our thanks and appreciation for what they did for us. They also have our unqualified recommendation to anyone who is looking to sell their house, especially in our former community, Overlook.

Starting from our first house sale in September 2014, Bella Casa Partners continues to deliver market-besting results for our clients. Each house we sell typically obtains a higher price in far fewer days for our clients than for comparable houses for sale in the same community. We put equal emphasis on top-line sale price and minimizing carrying costs through a quicker sale to produce the best possible net result for our clients.
We achieve these results because our houses offer a more compelling visual presentation to potential buyers due to the unique services we provide our clients. Potential buyers view our houses as offering more "value" as their next home, leading to quicker offers for a higher price for our clients.
See our client testimonials below for the results achieved on specific properties.
For example, in our first year, we sold more houses in the Overlook Community in Alexandria than any agent has sold in a single year. Each of our Overlook sales produced a multi-year high in sale price (dating back 9+ years to 2006) in significantly less time on market than other comparable townhouses and city homes for sale at the same time. In most cases, our houses have sold many weeks to months sooner than the competing houses listed for sale.
Contact us to learn more about how we consistently deliver a better net result to our clients.
