I'm Christina VanDergrift
I've always been obsessed with learning and finding ways to transform new knowledge into opportunities for professional and personal success. As a young female in a male-dominated industry almost 20 years ago, I started a career as a real estate agent, worked tirelessly, and leveraged my experience every step of the way to become a successful serial entrepreneur. Currently, I own a variety of companies—three in the real estate industry, a carwash that has become known locally as the “Taj Mahal of carwashes,” a U-Haul business, and one that owns multiple vacation rental properties across the country. My real estate expertise also includes vacation rental property management and renovating/flipping investment properties. Throughout my career, I have received various awards and recognitions, including North Central Penn Board of Realtor’s “2019 Realtor of the Year” and distinction as one of Pennsylvania Business Central’s “Top 100 People” in January 2020.

In addition to my business ventures, I have a passion for community involvement, and serve on the board of several organizations and contribute to local causes in my hometown of Wellsboro, PA. I enjoy spending time with my husband Jeremy and our three sons, getting out into the great outdoors, immersing myself in a good book, expanding my knowledge, singing, and creating art.
I understand the challenges of having big dreams, but little money or experience to take the first steps toward attaining them. I started with almost nothing other than grit, determination, and a willingness to learn and put in the work. Now, I strive to use my unwavering motivation and lessons learned to educate, inspire, and empower people who are interested in getting into the vacation rental industry, real estate, or business in general but don’t know where or how to begin. My message to anyone aspiring to create a path to success and wealth is “Never settle! Life is what you make it.” I'm thrilled by the opportunity to help people achieve their personal and professional potential through my book, “Vacation Rentals: The Ultimate Guide”; online resources; and one-on-one coaching.
