Why I Started My Career at Vantage West Realty | Calista Anderson

Calista is a Sales Consultant with Vantage West Realty who joined the firm in 2020, then went on to have the most lucrative year of her life.

What’s the key to her success? She credits her natural ability to connect with people and quickly develop rapport. She has years of experience as a MAC makeup artist, medical sales rep, and a restaurant professional who helped launch 2 of Cactus Club’s flagship locations in BC.

After designing and building a custom home with her partner Sheldon, she found a new passion in real estate and decided to make her mark in the industry. She received several job offers from the leading real estate firms in Kelowna, and decided that Vantage West Realty was the best place to start her career.

In 2021, Calista had the most lucrative year of her life. She sold over $30 million of real estate, broke some local sales records, and built up a strong network of contacts along the way.

Why Did You Choose Vantage West Realty?

Every opportunity had its pros and cons, but I picked Vantage West Realty because of their Mentorship Program. It’s a fool-proof way to start your business.

I’m learning new skills and ways to solve problems every single week. Since Vantage West is growing so quickly and we’re involved in so many aspects of real estate, I’m learning about real estate from every angle: buying, selling, renting, investing, and development.

Whenever I need support, I schedule a 1-on-1 coaching session with our team leaders Nick, AJ, or Michael. They’re amazing real estate coaches but also life coaches who help us thrive in our personal lives.

To top it off, I’m earning more money than I’ve ever made in my life.

Real Accountability

It’s easy to stay motivated and on track because there’s a lot of accountability working at Vantage West Realty.

We regularly meet as a team to discuss our challenges and successes to help each other thrive. When problems do come up – and they always will in real estate – I have a room full of experienced real estate pros to lean on for support.

In my first year, I learned how to effectively build relational rapport, close deals, and manage my time – without having to learn everything the hard way.

How Does The Lead Funnel Work?

One of the best parts about working at Vantage West is their lead funnel system which lets me leverage my time and focus on what I love – serving my clients.

Our lead funnel sets me up with ready-to-act buyers and sellers that are matched with me based on the client’s personality. That means I’m almost always working with people that I get along with, and I’m never out there begging for deals – they land in my inbox every week.

The sheer volume of leads has let me build up my sales pipeline really quickly compared to some of my colleagues at the big name firms who are left to sink or swim on their own.

I Had a Truly Amazing First Year in Real Estate

Starting my career at Vantage West Realty has been kind of crazy… In my first 18 months I’ve already done over 50 deals and sold over $30,000,000 in real estate.

I absolutely love my new career. Here’s to another amazing year at Vantage West Realty!
