“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

“I’ve known Sam several years and have always admired his passion for the real estate industry, his eagerness to assist and provide pleasing results for his clients and his thoroughness and detail with every transaction he’s involved in. A “professional” in the truest sense of the word. I can highly recommend him, with absolute confidence, that he will more than meet your expectations.”

– Leonard A. Kaiser

“I look for three characteristics in any business relationship. I expect the people I work with to keep their commitments, be an expert in their specialty, and be available when I need them.   Sam exceeded my expectations in all of these areas. I would recommend him to anyone who needs help buying or selling a home.”

– Greg & Alex Bowen

“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

“Sam was easy to communicate with, hard-working, professional and up to date on current market trends when he assisted me with buying my home. I would recommend him for all your real estate needs. Sam is among the leading agents in Mobile and Baldwin Counties.”

– Curran & Lundy Foose

“I recently retained Sam to handle the sale of a piece of residential property that our family was trying to sell in a difficult market. As a result of his professionalism and hard work in representing us, our property was sold in a short period of time. Our family was very pleased with Sam’s performance, and would highly recommend him to others who may need assistance in selling real estate”.

– Charlie Story

“My wife and I had the privilege of working with Sam to sell our home and purchase a new one. He was very attentive to our needs and always very prepared. We had a wonderful experience, and will definitely use him for all of our future real estate needs.”
