Hello and Thank You for stopping by my website today.

Hi! I’m Sam. I am a REALTOR in the Topeka and Shawnee County, Kansas area. I have 26 years of experience and love what I do for a living. As you can see I have a pretty good resume. I sell around 25 homes and year, that's one about every 2 weeks. Enough to to be in the Top 20% of Topeka area Realtors and be able to pay a lot of attention to each and every one of my clients' transactions.


I help folks like you buy and sell  homes every day.

People hire me because they know how much I care about meeting their most important goals. I’m honest, reliable, knowledgeable and I meet all kinds of interesting people like you. I’m a terrific listener. I know the market, the process, the ins, the outs; what to do and what NOT to do when it comes to real estate transactions. I take the time to get to know you, your needs and what I can do to help your situation. I have a team of experts who help me with every facet of my business. If I don't know the answer to a question or problem, I'll get it for you.


I am here to help make your real estate experience easy and fun.

I’d sure like to help you buy the home of your dreams. As a Buyer, I will search high and low to find you a home that you like and can afford. I won’t show you ones you can’t or ones that don't or won't fit your needs. I will put you on an MLS watch list so you get the newest listings first. I’ve never talked anyone into buying a house but I have talked several folks out of bad ones. Sometimes, I tell them they should rent and not buy. Not very profitable but all of us sleep better at night.

If you are a Seller, I put maximum effort into exposing your house to the most potential buyers possible. I have a written Marketing Plan to share with you. My goal is to get you the highest price possible in the time you have to sell. I will help get your house in shape to sell and price it accordingly. If we use our heads, it will sell along with the market and you will be thrilled. I want you to be a success not a horror story.


Buying or selling, I will make you the envy of all your friends.

So, I know I can’t get you to like and trust me without meeting with you face to face. That makes some people nervous because they think they will be sold something or make a terrible mistake. I have been with Berkshire-Hathaway/Prudential for 13 glorious years and because I'm pretty good at my job, I will NOT let that happen.


Bottom line: I want you as a client and friend for life.

So I'm asking you to pick up the phone or drop me an email and schedule an interview with me. I don't bite and the interview is free. I don't expect you to sign anything at first and I like lots of questions. I want you so happy with my service that you will want to refer me to your friends. If you are ready to go, I’m ready to help. Pick up the phone and let’s get started, shall we?


One other thing: Please don't judge me by the number of listings displayed on my webpage. The market is very fluid and I also work with buyers.

My Solds and Under Contract homes are not displayed.
