Samantha is very easy to work with.
I really enjoyed working with Samantha. She understood what we were looking for, but did not limit our options. She gave us the opportunity to change our search criteria as we refined what it was we wanted in a property. Samantha is not at all pushy and realizes that the decision is ultimately up to her clients. She is enthusiastic and very easy to work with. I would definitely recommend Samantha to anyone in the process of searching for a new home. ~The Etter Family
Thank you....You have touched our hearts.....
Vince and Samantha,
Denise and I reminisce all the time about our journey into selling our home in Buffalo Grove to owning 137 Sylvan. We wouldn't have done it if it weren't for the both of you. We will always tell the stories of our ordeal and it will be passed down to our kids etc.....some day when our grand kids ask us, how did you come to live here, Sylvan Lake...we will tell them the story....
You guys are special and responded to every question and challenge. Vince, I will truly miss learning and working with you. Our door will always remain open to you and our hearts will always reamin eternally grateful for your efforts on our behalf. ~Your Good Friends~Gary and Denise
She doesn't stop after the sale!
Sam works hard for her clients. And she doesn't stop working for you after the sale, she is always there to help out where she can. She is a true professional and the best realtor we have ever worked with. ~The Strahls
Willing to work for her Clients!
Having moved many times we have had our share of realtor relationships. The work Samantha did for us in finding a rental home was way beyond the normal scope of work for a realtor. She was able to find a great home for us in a small target area and come in on budget. The next time we need a realtor we will definately contact Samantha. She is thoughtful and insightful and very much willing to work for her clients. Thanks again, Dave and Angie Rands
