Since joining the industry in 2000 Sam has sold over $300 million dollars of country property throughout the Waikato, and the picturesque and productive Matamata area, establishing himself as one of the top rural agents within Bayleys New Zealand.
A former farmer with a broad understanding of the operational and business aspects of farming, Sam’s been able to forge trusted and long-standing working relationships with his real estate clients resulting in industry awards and plenty of repeat business.
“I subscribe to the ‘clients for life’ philosophy and believe that clear and transparent communication is vital when dealing with property matters. A well-informed client is able to weigh up options and make clear decisions when it counts so I keep those communication channels open and ensure that honest feedback is the foundation of my business,” says Sam.
A life on the land is a great leveller; Sam’s former farming experience and ability to ‘walk the rural real estate talk’ has cemented his success in the property industry.
“I understand the daily challenges that farmers and those who live on lifestyle blocks are faced with. The decision to sell a rural property is not made lightly and I know that my clients need an agent who is trustworthy and acts with integrity at all times,” says Sam.
A down-to-earth and likeable chap, Sam brings a high level of energy and a clear business head to real estate. His past results, his ability to achieve his vendors’ goals and his ability to exceed their expectations on the communication front have made him a ‘go to’ agent in the Matamata district.
“It is great to be part of the Bayleys country team as their strength in the auction arena, their superior marketing initiatives, resources, training, managerial support and service ethic enhances what I can do for my clients.”
“Helping people meet their property objectives is a challenge that I love – this is a dynamic industry and it’s one I have a real passion for.”
Sam is a member of the local Lions Club and takes a keen interest in his community. When the opportunity strikes, he’s off to the family bach at Whangamata – a great way to recharge the batteries!
