The Gold Standard

My husband and I cannot sing Sam Winter’s praises loudly enough. He has everything you want in a realtor and nothing you don’t.

First, Sam is PATIENT. Sam worked with us for over three years in a long and arduous search for our next home. He never pressured us, never offered unwanted opinions, and never complained about how long the process was taking. He offered thoughtful opinions when we asked him, but overall, he wanted us to be happy in our next home, regardless of how long the process took. He helped us make three offers and negotiate them before we finally found our forever home. He talked the process and our next moves in the negotiation over with each of us at length. He calmly answered all of our many questions.

Second, Sam is KIND. Sam does not talk negatively about homes, sellers, buyers, or other realtors. It seems like a little thing. It isn’t.

Third, Sam is WISE. He came prepared to talk about whatever home we were looking at and offered insight about aspects of the home we were looking at that we hadn’t thought about before. When selling our home, he advised us about what to do to get the house ready to list, as well as how to price it to sell within the timeframe we wanted to sell it. At a time in our lives when things were crazy (moving, new baby, etc.), his wisdom on these issues was heaven-sent.

Finally, Sam is RESPONSIVE. He always promptly texted or called us back. When we wanted to see a house, he got us out there quickly. Many times, we were the first couple to look at a particular property on the first day it was listed. He listened to our feedback on properties, and adapted as some of our needs changed in our house hunt over time. Both my husband and I work full-time, have a toddler, and were pregnant with one at the time of the search. He would speak to us or meet with us after business hours or even when he was on vacation. If you want the best realtor in town, go to Sam Winter. He is the gold standard.

OUR HOUSE WAS SOLD IN NO TIME

“Brantley Anne was amazing thru the entire process for us. Always stayed on top of all our questions and held very productive open houses which got our house sold in no time! I have no doubt she is on her way to a very successful career in real estate.”

– Jack Murphy

Diligent & Efficient

“My wife and I listed our condo in downtown Mobile with Sam. He did a great job of bringing us in an offer very quickly. However, the buyer dragged their feet and, long story short… our closing blew up at the last minute. Sam once again worked diligently and efficiently to get us a cash offer! He always communicated quickly and was always responsive. I really appreciate how Sam listened to what my wife and I wanted before he recommended what we should do. He took the time to listen to our thoughts and then proceeded forward. I really felt like throughout the entire process he has my best interest at heart. I cannot say enough positive things about him and his company. If you are listing real estate in Mobile, Al, you’ve found your agent!”

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

“We purchased our first house through Sam. He is very knowledgeable of the ever changing real estate market! He was very patient with us and kept us up to date on any houses open for sale that may have been of interest to us. He stayed in touch with us through the entire process answering any questions we had and giving us endless advice. We are very satisfied with our new home and with the service Sam provided to us. We highly recommend him to anyone looking for real estate.”

– Michael & Elaine Manas

NEIGHBORHOOD EXPERT

“When Willis decided to join Surgeons of Mobile, we seriously started on our long distance house hunt. Sam was highly recommended to us by several friends and he certainly lived up to his reputation. We told Sam about our love of old homes and our hope for a community feel. Since we were new to the area, Sam took that information and spent an entire weekend showing us all around Mobile. He helped us find the perfect home on the perfect street. After we went back to South Carolina and prepared for our move, Sam took the reigns of our home buying process. Even though we were over 500 miles away, it was like he was right next door. Sam always made himself available for our questions and was truly our advocate while we were so far away.”

– Willis & Jennifer Nichols

KNOWLEDGEABLE & PROFESSIONAL

“My husband and I were new to the Mobile area and didn’t know where to start when it came to looking for a place to live. Sam was very knowledgeable about the Mobile area and helped us find a home that fit what we were looking for. He never tried to push us towards a property just to make a sale. He was professional, friendly, and very easy to communicate with. We couldn’t be happier with the area and house that we bought, and we never would’ve found it without Sam’s assistance.”

– Conley & Lauren Reilly

Quick & Responsive

“Steve kept us informed of our home’s status, account of reviews, visits and was quick to respond to any questions we had. Once closing was determined, Steve outlined the process, answered our questions thoroughly and promptly and provided insight through all steps.”

– Paul & Angie Odom

Personal Touch

“Sam was fantastic! He handled everything with a personal touch and came up with solutions when needed. Sam was always quick to return a text/call/email and did a nice job of keeping both myself and my husband in the loop. He let us know when we needed to sign anything to keep the ball rolling. He had suggestions when we had some hiccups with the termite inspection. I really appreciated his positive attitude and strong work ethic!”

– Mary Herbst

In a League of His Own

“Sam Winter is in a league all his own. He raises the bar every day on quality service with his is knowledge, expertise and drive for timely responses to every issue. I highly recommend Sam for all your real-estate needs.”

– Dirk Davis

Sold in One Day

“Mr. May was a pleasure to work with on the sale of my home in the Oakleigh garden district. We based our sales price on his recommendation and were handsomely rewarded and sold in 1 day. He comes highly recommended for his knowledge of architecture and local market knowledge. He was prompt, courteous and a professional person.”

– William May

Incredibly Helpful Resource

“When it came time to sell our home in Midtown Mobile, Sam was an incredibly helpful resource to my wife and I. From telling us which home improvements were necessary investments before listing the home, to reviewing offers and sorting out details of home inspections, Sam’s expertise and candor guided us through each step of the process. We can’t imagine partaking in another real estate transaction without him and look forward to working with him again.”

– Bryan & Jennifer Cooley

professional & personable

“Sam is a great agent. He is respected and admired by his peers in the Real Estate profession which is a big advantage for buyers and sellers. Other agents like to show and sell his properties and find him a pleasure to work with as he is professional and personable. He listed our home and was wonderful in his communicating and negotiations. I highly recommend Sam Winter!”

– Lynn Cummings

MOBILE AREA enthusiasT

“My wife, two small children, and I relocated to Mobile from Memphis in late 2014. My wife and I both worked full time in Memphis and would squeeze trips to house-hunt in Mobile into our schedule whenever we could spare a weekend. Our odd schedule did not phase Sam; he was available to work with us on our terms, which was critical. He is easy to talk to and pleasant to be around which eased the whole process. His greatest strength, though, is his love of Mobile. He speaks with knowledge and enthusiasm about what makes each neighborhood great and with frankness about items he thinks we may consider a drawback. Sam was knowledgeable, organized and efficient in wading through the offer/counteroffer/inspection/repair process, which was a great comfort, and he was a fierce negotiator when appropriate. Once we settled into our new home, Sam remained a resource for all things Mobile: restaurants, contractors, where to find a boat ramp, you name it.”
