Amanda Westrheim of Century 21 Assurance in Kelowna, B.C. is Century 21 Canada’s Sales Associate of the Year. The award was presented during the organization’s 40th anniversary Canada Conference in Vancouver recently.

Candidates for Sales Associate of the Year are selected by peer nomination and evaluated based on a variety of factors that include sales, growth and their overall contribution to the system and local community.

Westrheim started her career in real estate as soon as she graduated from high school, taking on administrative roles for Century 21 Assurance until she was licensed in 2011. In her first year she became the top producing agent in her office and received the brand’s award for sales excellence, the Centurion.

“I have always known that I wanted to be a Realtor, so to receive this type of acknowledgement, so early on in my career, is surreal and beyond encouraging,” says Westrheim. “My discipline and background in the industry, prior to even being licensed, gave me an incredible head start as a Realtor. I want to thank everyone who has supported me from day one.”

Last year Westrheim became a Double Centurion producer, an achievement that requires a gross closed commission of at least $484,000 or 134 units.

“To be named Sales Associate of the Year is an incredible honour at any stage in a Realtor’s career, but to receive this recognition just five years in is quite exceptional,” says Brian Rushton, executive vice president, Century 21 Canada. “Her passion for real estate and obvious commitment to her clients and the Century 21 brand is inspiring and I look forward to watching her continued success.”
