We have lived in the Okanagan for 18 years this month and have bought and sold a number of properties dealt with many realtors. We found Calista Anderson a excellent person to talk to and very very happy to have her as our realtor. - Wanda Maloney
As a first-time home buyer, I had done some research beforehand. After dealing with a couple other brokers and was disappointed, I felt lucky to find Calista. She was an absolute pleasure to work with. Her professionalism, knowledge, honesty, integrity, and hard work ethics are very much appreciated. She was such a caring realtor and was so attentive to my needs. She was patient, kind, and always answered my questions. She was extremely helpful, detail oriented, transparent, and reliable through the whole process. I will definitely reach out to Calista in the future, and I would recommend her to all my friends and family. A joy to work with! - Houssain El Aribi
Reply: Thank you for sharing your experience Houssain! It was a pleasure working with you and I am so proud that we were able to secure you a great home after the challenges in this market. I can't wait to see you and your family settled in and enjoying that outdoor oasis and view.
Really enjoyed working with Calista over the past 4 months. My husband and I just bought our first house in Canada and as we are new to the country (we landed here 7 months ago!), we were clean slates like a couple of baby immigrants; naive, hopeful and optimistic. Calista is warm, welcoming and very easy to get along with. She put us right at ease from our first meeting so we felt confident that we could trust her right away. She understood our circumstance and heard what we needed. Calista has been super patient too. For example, we knew we loved Kelowna and wanted to live somewhere around here, which is really vague, so as we became more familiar with the city, our needs and wants evolved with that too. Another example of Calista's patients is the fact that she answered all of our questions, no matter how many times she already explained, if we didn't retain something or didn't understand something, she was kind and patient enough to go over things again. Calista paid close attention to any changes in what we wanted and came through and responded to adjustments every time, for each of us as individuals, as well as together as a couple. Even when I've been a bit panicked and frantic and chose to view a house that did not meet our non-negotiables, she would call me out on that, and bring us back into alignment into what we needed. We were impressed too when she went the extra mile, when we were not available to see couple of houses by their deadline, Calista took it upon herself to do a guided video tour of houses which were both super thorough and detailed, even getting a sense of the street and the neighborhood. Calista has a great eye for creativity which I really appreciate because I'm not as able to visualize the potential of a room any differently to how it already is - she was able to point out potential modifications to spaces which is cool and inspiring. We put offers on 4 houses in total and Calista really supported and guided us through it each time. Calista was super transparent with her discussions with the listing agents and really batted for us to get a fair deal. We are so happy with the result that we have now and its even sweeter knowing that we did not need to stretch to the top of our budget, even though we were prepared to. This meant a lot to us because it is so wild to think of the difference in what we might have paid upfront as well as our potential mortgage repayments vs the reality of what did happen. That was all down to Calista's advocacy. This process has not been easy and we feel so lucky and grateful that we got to work with Calista. Thank you for everything and I hope we work with you again in the future! - Sam Scouse
Reply: Sam, thank you for taking the extra time to write such a thorough and kind review. It's been a pleasure working with you and Matt, you are both so lovely. I'm so excited about your future here in the Okanagan!
We had THE BEST experience dealing with Calista for our home buying journey. Calista is an absolute professional and is extremely easy to get along with. Calista goes above and beyond what is expected of her and even after we closed on the purchase she was there for us to make sure the move went smoothly and any issues that came up she handled professionally and in a timely manner. Calista made us feel valued and that our questions mattered. She always has a smile on her face and she has the most lovely personality. She is not pushy or opinionated and truly wants to help make the buying process a stress free experience. Calista is truly amazing and I feel she is an extremely valuable asset to your real estate team. Never let her go! - Bev Anderson
Reply: Bev, thank you for sharing this review of your experience. I couldn't be more excited to have been a part of such an incredible milestone in your lives. It's been great working with you, looking forward to the next one!
Calista was amazing to work with right from our first zoom call meeting! She gave us a lot of information about different neighbourhood and the market, and listened to everything we were looking for in a house. And she found us the perfect house! She helped us every step of the way with making an offer and making sure we were 100% comfortable and happy with the conditions of the sale! I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home! - Megan
Reply: Thanks a ton, Megan! I'm so excited to see what you two have done with your new home with all of your talent and hard work. Thank you for being such amazing people to work with, looking forward to helping you find the next one!
I would have to say that Calista exceeded all our expectations during the process. Without her hard work; knowledge and understanding it would probably have been a painful process for us. In addition to everything else she was very flexible in accommodating us and helping us at all sorts of weird hours and on weekends to make sure we were up to date and comfortable with the situation. - Peter Kerswell
Reply: Thank you, Pete! I'm so happy that you felt like you were in good hands and that we were finally able to get you moved to the beautiful Okanagan where you belong.

I would definitely recommend Calista and Vantage West for all item Real Estate related items. Calista did a wonderful job of introducing me to the search, and purchase, process of my first home. She was knowledgeable and was very good at refining the search process to reflect all of my comments, likes, and dislikes. The complete process through to move-in was very smooth and I couldn't have asked for a better purchasing experience. - None
