Samantha is a third generation real estate professional following more than 40 years of family experience in development, building and real estate investing. She earned a respected reputation in South Florida as a top producer, better known for selling and listing multi-million dollar beachfront estates. She ranked on REAL Trends as one of America's Best Real Estate Agents determined by individual sales volume in just a year of entering the industry. As a resident of Golden Beach since 1989, she developed key relationships with neighbors and access to homes within the community that sometimes never reach the open market. She is experienced in bringing discrete sellers and buyers together through her established first-class network, and successfully negotiated numerous closings for unlisted properties. Through this network she developed a catalog of off-market properties, which gained her a large buyer pool seeking the unattainable. Working with purchasers, she is known to approach homeowners to sell with a buyer waiting. Her knowledge as a native Floridian is valuable in assisting the relocation of clients to lifestyle communities in South Florida, where income taxes are significantly lower than similar bustling states such as New York and California. Out of college she pursued a career in public relations and held the position of Marketing Director for Mussallem Galleries. The company owns and operates a 100,000 sq. ft. gallery in North Florida. It sells an eclectic array of museum quality paintings, Objects D' Art and oriental rugs, many of which sold through Sotheby's Auction House. There Samantha formed a network of clientele with a palate for luxury seeking a high-level of service. She returned to Miami for a marketing and business development position and continued to advance her marketing talents. Samantha was drawn to Sotheby's reputation established over hundreds of years as a marketer for many of the world's most valuable and luxurious possessions. In keeping with this reputation, she partnered with Sotheby's International Realty® to become recognized for distinct real estate, maximum results and exceptional service. When she is not working, Samantha spends her time cruising or diving Miami's coast. She became a certified scuba diver at the age of 12 and has been taking advantage of Miami's clear and tropical water ever since. Samantha graduated cum laude from the University of Florida with a Bachelor of Science in Public Relations and a Minor in Entrepreneurship.
