Not Your Typical REALTOR®
Not Your Typical REALTOR® BIO
Raised in West Kelowna, BC. Amanda Westrheim is an award winning Kelowna real estate agent, author, and reality tv personality. You loathe typical real estate agent bios. Don’t worry, I do too. They’re like cardboard — stiff, bland, and identical to every other bio out there. Instead of boasting ad nauseum about awards and accomplishments you’re not interested in (see page right, LOL) I’m taking the novel approach of actually giving you what you want — real answers to questions you’re probably wondering right now.
Yes. Without question.
I realize this is one of the major frustrations the general public has with dealing with agents. I get dozens of calls and emails daily, and I work hard to reply as quickly as possible.
Depends on who you ask. If you ask certain agents who have stood between my clients and their real estate goals, they’ll probably say “yes”. A handful of people think I leave golden footprints in the sand! Those are the two extremes, and most people’s opinion falls somewhere in the middle. Here’s what I can tell you: I’m honest and candid. I take pride in being approachable and friendly. And if you need a quick real estate brain, or a strong dose of honesty, you’re in the right place. Loyalty to family, clients, and friends is one of my core values. Want to really find out if I’m a jerk? Mess with one of those people.
Until you tell me what you need, there is no way of knowing.
These are some “strong suits” of mine:
• Really knowing the current market
• Expert on the Kelowna/West Kelowna/Peachland/Lake Country & Vernon areas
• Strong negotiating skills
• Quick response times
• Investment/rental income propertiesIf your goal or situation isn’t represented on that list, don’t worry. Contact me anyway. If I can’t help, I can get you referred to an another agent who can.
On a personal level, I’m pretty good at cooking (I make a killer coconut curry!) and I compete in bodybuilding in my spare time.
On a professional level, here are the skill-sets that I’ve developed over the years:
• Listening (unfortunately, a lost art these days)
• Really caring about your wants, needs and goals
• Energy and enthusiasm
• A good reputation
My clients are better suited to answer this for you. Here’s what some of them have said: TESTIMONIALS
