Why you should work with Bella

I have dedicated myself as a Commercial and Residential Real Estate Consultant since 2006 starting as an owner of commercial and residential properties in Texas and Florida.

Many years of practicing real estate full time give me an in depth knowledge and understanding of market fluctuations, current trends, and most importantly skills to close a smooth transaction.
A graduate from Memorial University with major in finance, and a Certified Public Accountant (CPA), I bring a refreshing perspective on the commercial and residential real estate industry. My professional and analytical skill sets, experience in 1031 exchange will deliver cost saving benefits when clients seek a disposition or acquisition of commercial/residential properties.

Armed with the most current market data, I will work hard to negotiate the best possible deal for you.
Fluent in Polish, German and partially in Russian, I have had opportunities in helping and understanding European strategy, following diverse culture and enjoy different style of ethnic cuisine. I pride myself on operating with strong ethics, honesty and integrity throughout the real estate process.

My Services


Whether purchasing, selling, executing a 1031 exchange, as an investor you have specific financial goals.

Buyers: I take the time to understand what your investment horizon is and which asset class I can position your capital in to best meet your target IRRs. I can assist in identifying how your capital stack should be structured, I can manage your expectations, and I can assure that you are making an educated decision.  I went through 1031 process myself, therefore, I can help you step by step it this complicated process.

Sellers: When disposing of an asset, it is crucial to highlight what makes your asset special so I can offer it to the perfect buyer at the right price. I leverage my relationships with top brokers and accredited investors to get your asset in front of a targeted pool of qualified buyers.

The four things I am looking for in  property analysis are numbers, narratives, indications, and assurance

Numbers are the gritty details of a property—the years, dates, prices, and measurements associated with it.
Narratives are the stories and history behind a property. 
Indications are the signals that point to a property owner’s intentions or potential actions. 
Assurance is essentially validation that a property is worth pursuing, and is a valuable use of time. Assurance is based on finding the right numbers, narratives, and indications tied to a property.

I will be part of each investment transaction, providing the knowledge and negotiation expertise needed to get a deal done. I will link you with the proper legal, tax advisory, and financial teams to ensure that each part of the transaction is well-structured and executed in a timely manner.

International Buyers

What Foreign Nationals Need To Know About Buying Florida Real Estate

According to the National Association of Realtors, Florida has the largest number of foreign real estate investors in the U.S., with 41% purchasing vacation homes, 25% making a dual use purchase (vacation home/rental property) and 23% investing in rental propert.

Foreignnationals are able to purchase real estate in the U.S. for personal use, either in their own names or the name of a corporation or LLC. 

Foreign investors are also entitled to defer capital gains taxes in the U.S. by purchasing another investment property under Section 1031 of the IRS Code. The actual tax treatment of foreign real estate buyers may depend on any existing tax treaties between the U.S. and their home countries. This can be a complicated area, which is why it is advisable for foreign investors to consult with an experienced Florida real estate attorney.

Investment Property
Under the International Investment and Trade in Services Survey Act, foreign nationals purchasing large tracts of real estate in the U.S. must report that purchase to the U.S. Department of Commerce.

The information that must be reported includes the names and addresses of buyers, sellers and owners of more than a 50% interest, and financing information (income, expenses, etc.) about the property. More reporting details are required for property over 200 acres or property with a purchase price of more than $1 million.

Rental Property
Foreign nationals purchasing Florida real estate for leasing purposes are subject to taxation on rental income. Foreign landlords have a choice on how to be taxed: Pay 30% of gross rental receipts; or Pay regular U.S. income tax rates on net income from the property by filing a Form 4224 with the IRS.

Florida Requirements
Florida has certain filing requirements for foreign nationals and legal entities purchasing real estate here. Any property owned by a foreign business entity or U.S. corporation whose ownership by foreign nationals exceeds 10% must have a registered Florida office and agent on file with the Florida Department of State. If the sales tax on rents is collected, a foreign national must register as a sales tax dealer with the Florida Department of Revenue.
