Originally from Far Hills, New Jersey, Sam attended Deerfield Academy and Skidmore College. After college, he worked on Wall Street for four years before deciding to follow his love of sports. After his endeavors in New York City, Sam landed a sought-after position with International Management Group in the tennis division and later for the Los Angeles Lakers organization. Sam also had the honor of working for the Atlanta Committee for the Olympic Games in Atlanta, Georgia and the Sydney Committee for the Olympic Games in Sydney, Australia. In 2001 following the Sydney Games, he and his family returned to Atlanta, unknowing that a full-hearted interest in luxury real estate and a successful career awaited.
