I'd like to share a little information about my background as it relates to the real estate industry. The real estate market is constantly changing so it is imperative to have an educated, full-time real estate broker who has your best interest in mind.
I am a graduate of the University of South Florida with both a Bachelors and a Masters degree in Business Administration. I have been in the real estate industry for eight years and have worked hard to build my business. I started my real estate career as a land developer for a large national home builder where I learned how to plan and build large master-planned communities from the ground up. When the housing marked tanked in 2008, new homes were hit the hardest so land development came to a virtual halt overnight. I knew I wanted to stay in real estate so I took a leap of faith and got my real estate sales associate license and went to work learning the harrowing world of short sales. Short sales was a new animal to both real estate professionals and lenders so getting transactions closed were quite a challenge. Short sales have gotten somewhat easier today, but it is still a tough road to closing transactions. Through one hundred percent commitment, I have built a prosperous real estate business from the ground up.
If I can share more about my background or if you have any questions, please call me so I can tell you more about how I can help.
My husband and I enjoyed every minute of the five days we spent with Sheila! Her no-pressure approach while shopping for a new home helped us feel at ease and confident in our final decision. She was knowledgeable, professional, and an advocate for our best interests. When it’s time for us to buy or sell, we will definitely call Sheila again.

I recently purchased a townhouse in the North Tampa area and I must say that I was quite fortunate to have had Sheila Calistri as my agent. She never was “pushy” like a lot of realtors are during low sales periods and she constantly was in communication with me regarding all aspects of the purchasing process. Everything went smooth and uneventful. I will certainly use Sheila for my next purchase and I recommend her services to anyone.
