As a proven top-producing Broker, Sam blends innovative technologies with solid, old-fashioned customer service to deliver real results for his trusted clients. He prides himself on establishing strong client relationships founded on honesty, personal attention, and reliability.

A native of the North Shore suburbs of Chicago, Sam relocated to Michigan after receiving a Bachelor's Degree in political science and Russian degree from Miami University (Ohio) in 2010. He entered the real estate industry in 2012 and hit the ground running. He quickly positioned himself as a true market expert and is currently recognized as an HOUR Detroit All-Star, a title given to the top 5% of Realtors in Metro Detroit. Sam’s rapid success is a direct result of his unmatchable work ethic, personal drive, and commitment to excellence.

Sam earned his Associate Broker license in just his 4th year of real estate and was the youngest ever to hold this license in Hall & Hunter’s 65+ year history. Additionally, he earned eight other real estate designations to better serve his clients - the most accredited agent at Hall & Hunter. These certifications and accreditations, coupled with his vast negotiation experience, allow Sam to serve a wide range of clients including first-time home buyers and sellers, international relocation transferees, multi-property investors, builders and developers and high-net worth and high profile clientele. He recognizes the uniqueness of each transaction and strives to provide a personalized approach to meet the needs of each client. He provides luxury service, regardless of price-point.

Being the Office Educator at Hall & Hunter Realtors, Sam is honored to continue supporting his fellow Realtors through training seminars, creating business plans, holding fellow agents accountable for their success and being an overall resource for the brokerage - all while holding his position as a local Top Producer. It is due to his extensive experience, education and dedication that he was able to achieve this role and have the opportunity to give back to his coworkers.

Sam lives in Huntington woods with his wife Sarah, son Harrison, daughters Emilia and Adeline, and their sheepdog Winnie. In his spare time, he loves spending time with his family, playing soccer, golf and loves following all Chicago sports. He also is very proud to dedicate his efforts and donations as a board member of Oakland Family Services. OFS is an integral community organization that positively impacts the lives of thousands and thousands of Metro Detroit families.

I truly care about the people in my life. Life is short so I only surround myself with good people and those that I enjoy being around. I want to be happy and am always optimistic, humble and grateful. I embody these principles to create a healthy work-life balance.
My clients become friends, and friends become family…and at the end of the day, family is what it's all about, right?!?
