Meet Samantha Bustamante, Prosal Community Manager

by
Samantha Bustamanete

My name is Samantha Bustamante, and I am honored to join the team at Prosal as the new Community Manager. As a community manager, my role is to be that initial point of contact and voice for our users and advocate for a better experience as we grow. Aside from that, I am behind all our social media and web interaction production. I am constantly finding ways to connect our audience to what we are doing here at Prosal in hopes of continuing to assert our presence on all platforms. 

Here is a brief video to get to know me more:

Originally from Hanford, California, I am based in Fresno, California. After obtaining an associate degree in Communications from Fresno City College, I pursued my academic and athletic aspirations at Cal State Northridge in Northridge, California, where I majored in Business Law on an athletic scholarship for soccer. 

Soccer played a considerable role in my life since the age of eight. I used the sport as a source of guidance and discipline once developing a passion for it. Not only did it give me a sense of love and purpose, but it also taught me lifelong skills that put me ahead in my career. I will forever be grateful for the sport. It taught me work ethic, time management, how to be a team player, leadership, discipline, and more. I am grateful to say I have played in important games such as UCLA, BYU, USC, and more, where decision-making, strategic planning, commitment, and focus were tested week after week. The skills I gained from playing a sport at such a high collegiate level are forever integrated into my toolbox as a woman in my career field. I sincerely appreciate the sport that helped shape who I am today; my potential is unlimited, and the opportunities are endless.

In 2022, I moved from Los Angeles to Fresno and embarked on my career in the commercial real estate industry. Through extensive exploration and acclimation to my role, I have developed a specialization in Multifamily properties and Land Development. I quickly learned that real estate was not just about transacting. Instead, it’s about finding and creating new opportunities to grow your community and allow residents to love where they come from. My long-term goal is to develop 1000+ units in the Central Valley for affordable housing. I plan to build more affordable housing units in North Fresno and Clovis to give individuals opportunities for better schooling, safer neighborhoods, and positive community involvement. All individuals should have the chance to reside in any part of their city rather than being sectioned off into specific areas due to income.

I am particularly enthusiastic about joining Prosal at this stage in their development, as their well-established vision and culture align perfectly with my own goals and mindset. Working alongside individuals like Nick, Nyle, and Alfredo, I am confident I will gain valuable knowledge and skills to enhance my professional toolkit. The Prosal team is highly driven and results-oriented, and I am eager to contribute to their passion for the vision and hopes of Prosal. Despite my young age, I have extensive experience engaging with communities and providing excellent service to clients, agencies, and those in need. My ultimate goal is to make a meaningful impact and achieve the highest success. I am thrilled to join this organization and look forward to future opportunities.
