Strategic Buyer Consultation
|When I first met Sam, I met him as an agent showing me a house that we were personally looking. That was my first house touring. I was impressed with his level on details on the home and he was able to point out the defects on certain areas. We got opportunity to explain our needs and Sam was paying full attention and details to our requirement and spend lot of time with us explaining about certain criteria to look at. Few weeks later when we engaged with him, we felt very comfortable touring homes. We toured about 20 to 30 houses. Sam was able to accommodate us every time we asked for appointment. I liked the process of evaluating each house with ratings and we know how close we are in finding our home. We were able to find our perfect home and it was only because of Sam and his team. Even after we closed home, he responsiveness is timely and he still helps us negotiating maintenance work with builders. I would always go to him for any realtor needs|
|Sam was a professional through beginning to end! I needed to find a house quickly (within a couple of weeks) and he answered my calls at all hours and showed me properties both early in the AM and late at night! When it came time to negotiate, Sam maneuvered through the process like a champ. Think the nice guy of your friend group that everyone loves, that’s Sam! His colleague Bailey was equally responsive, friendly, and helpful.|
|Sam and Bailey helped us tremendously through the entire process. They didn’t make us feel pressured at all to buy and actually went out of their way to make sure we had ALL he information on a house we were looking at wether it be good or bad. If your looking for an agent to be honest and attentive I couldn’t recommend Sam anymore.|
|We recently had moved to TX and were ready to start looking for a home after renting for a few months. We happened to find Sam Thomas' reviews online at Zillow and called him. This might have been one of the best decisions I have ever made. My family has moved 3 times in the last 3 years and Sam Thomas and Bailey Funke are the best realtors I have ever worked with. They are very responsive. If we called, they would pick up the phone and if we texted/emailed, we would receive a response within a couple of minutes. They are very knowledgeable about the area and were able to provide great information about the neighborhoods we viewed. We have 3 young children and the kids came along with us to each house we viewed. Sam and Bailey were very patient with our house search and helped us with our children so we could actually get a good idea of the floor plan and discuss the house as we walked through. I never felt like they were exasperated with us. Sam and Bailey will provide good honest feedback about the houses too. They have a great idea of what you are looking for and will provide great insight to you as you walk around the house. They point out a lot of things you might not even think about. I can recall an instance where we weren't sure if we would be able to park both of our cars in a 2 car garage and Sam was willing to drive his car into the garage so we could see the space that would exist if 2 cars were parked in the garage. Once we found a house and put an offer in, Bailey helped us negotiate a great price for the home! Sam and Bailey were with us every step of the way after the contract was accepted and helped us with the closing process. Buying this house was a pleasurable experience and Sam and Bailey had a lot to do with it. I would highly recommend them to anybody looking for a realtor and will always bring Sam and Bailey up to anybody looking to buy or sell.|
|It was really good experience with Sam Thomas. At first we r not into realtors but when we met Sam he gave us some guidance about how and were to find house and also helped us in details of house to check each point which was very helpful and also made us think which house to buy|
|Sam Thomas is not your average realtor. If you’re blessed to have him, count yourself lucky. There are always potential problems with real estate transactions, but Sam helped with even the smallest problems. He helped us decide whether or not to buy in the name of our living trust. He negotiated, on our behalf, issues such as roof repairs and seller “family estate” problems and changing closing date issues. Out calls and texts were answered promptly and no concern insignificant. Sam has a wide ranging network of experts in a variety of occupations to assist when needed or simply offer advice. It is obvious that integrity and honesty are Sam’s hallmark. Sam has become our friend and we thank God for for giving him to us.|
|Sam is always available, he has the expertise to navigate the tricky waters of buying and selling a home. He clearly laid out a plan from the beginning, stuck to it and delivered the results we were hoping for. Within a 3 day period we had 22 offers on our home! Highly recommend him.|
|We met Sam by chance and feel lucky. We found and closed on our first home purchase in less than 2 months. We did this with great help from Sam. We are more than satisfied with his service and have lot to say about his honesty, professionalism and undivided attention during the entire process. He never rushes while showing us houses and goes through every minute detail about the house to help us decide. We took his advise and recommendation on every step and he provided us the best options all the time keeping our best interest in mind. He even went beyond by guiding us when we had difficulty in coming out of our current renter lease. I would recommend him to anyone who is looking to buy or sell real estate.|
|Sam Thomas is very helpful in all details concerning houses that we go look at. He would point out everything from roof and if it needed repairs, if walls needed painting, if appliances were working properly or not, if air conditioning unit was in good condition, etc...... Sam Thomas is very helpful in all details. He is also a very honest and trustworthy realtor. We recommended him to family and friends interested in purchasing a house.|
|Over the period of a month Sam showed us properties and gave his undivided attention. Working with Sam was one of the best experiences ever. He was always professional and made us feel like we was his number one clients. The amazing part of the experience was that we were only looking for a rental and Sam put his all into helping us. Anyone looking for a agent would be well served to use Sam as their realtor because he and his team will give 100% start to finish.Sam's experience in personal and commercial property has easily earned my future business.Thanks for everything,Todd|
|Sam is an amazing realtor. The knowledge he brings from his pre-real estate life & his personality make him an awesome asset to PGR. Sam has been a constant in business and personal life transactions for years and the relationship continues to grow. Through the sales of my investment properties as well as 2 of my personal homes, Sam was there every step of the way. Analyzing offers, making recommendations and entertaining at open houses.|
|Sam is the best!! He play defense very well make sure we go what we wanted and for the best price and nothing less. Will always recommend to everyone!|
|We feel really lucky we have come across Sam. He has been of huge help through out the process of purchasing our home, always looking out for our best interest and financial benefit. He fights tenaciously to get a honest deal with the most crystal clear information. He makes sure the paperwork is filled up correctly, up to standards and with no hidden tricks etc... He has been with us through all the steps of this process and proudly recommend any one interested in purchasing a home to stick with him You wont be disappointed Erick Green|
|From the first phone call to the day we closed, Sam and team were incredibly professional and resourceful. He and the team handled a lot of details and even helped manage staging, updates needed as well as all the marketing. He by far exceeded what all the other agents said they would do. Sam always listened and was extremely prompt in any and all communication. I was completely confident during the entire process in his abilities. He understands the market dynamics and always listened to us. I would recommend Sam Thomas very highly to anyone looking to sell their home.|
|I'm a first time home buyer and while I did research prior to beginning this journey - I 100% missed some key factors. Sam has been very kind and patient with answering all of my questions along the way. He was very accommodating to my hectic schedule. I ended up having to reschedule viewing a house a couple of times due to work and I NEVER once felt like he was exasperated or frustrated by me. He walked me through what to expect throughout the home buying process. I would absolutely recommend Sam for anybody looking to buy a home!|
|Hands down the best experience I could possibly describe.... where do I begin... I started my journey with Sam Thomas about 4 to 5 months ago. He has shown me so many houses with the best attitude and gave me his honest opinion on each home... I even learned a thing or two along the way. Even though it took me time to find the perfect home I'll never forget when Sam thomas told me just have faith and dont give up.. when the house is right for you it will happen and everything will work out. And ofcourse he was right.. He has great communication skills and he keeps the best interest of the home buyer.. I was truly blessed to have Sam Thomas as my realtor and I would highly recommend him to everyone...|
|I have been working with Sam and his team for a few years now. We met at an open house and I was so impressed by his engagement and demeanor that I requested his assistance with a sale of a condo in Irving. When my husband and I began our search for a new home, he was the first person we thought of to call. He exhued great patience as we sifted through houses online and via visits. We felt that he truly listened to our feedback following each home visit and applied that when directing us to the next set of homes. His team was persistent in helping us offer and negotiate the best deal! They ensured that we got the best price/deal without risking losing the property. Sam ensured that someone from his team was available to show us houses when he wasn’t available. We never felt that we were being asked to accommodate their convenience. It was definitely all about us as their clients. Even once the contract was in place, they connected with us almost on a daily basis and were available to assist with anything related to our loan officer, title company, listing agent, etc. We feel that we receive a very high level of customer service and quality from them on a daily basis as we now work on selling our house! We are thankful for their service and thoroughness!|
|Sam Thomas is a great realtor, he explains everything about the home you are looking at and walks the home with you. Shows you what to look for with the roof, water heater and a/c units and especially cracks on the wall. Doesn't just sit around like other realtors. We haven't bought our home yet do to finances but he is the realtor we will call when ready.|
|Great job by Sam and Bailey! Tried other realtors before we found Sam and the difference was amazing! They were actually available to show homes when we needed them to be and were super responsive to calls and texts. We are in our new home now thanks to them!|
|If you are looking for a Realtor, for buying or selling a home, Sam would be a great choice. We weren’t looking, so we weren't prepared when we found our dream home. From day one, Sam developed a game plan to sell out current home, and to make the purchase of the our new home a reality. He, and his network of contacts, made the whole process a breeze. Always available, and very responsive to all our questions (we had a bunch). We closed on our sell and purchase the same day. I don’t the process could have gone better. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Sam at Providence Group Realty to anyone.|
|Sam has excellent people skills and took great interest in our family's needs. He worked diligently on details and strategies to sell our unique property. Our overall experience was wonderful and we were blessed to have worked with Sam!|
|Sam Thomas was a pro and walked us through every step of the selling process. He answered every question, prepared us for everything we would encounter and maintained great communication through it all.|
|Sam and Bailey were beyond exceptional throughout our entire selling AND buying our new home! Honest, upfront, no nonsense, ultra responsive to ANY needs or wants we had throughout the entire process! They both stayed late, even just to chat! I will ALWAYS recommend Sam and Bailey to anyone i know in the buying OR selling home market, from this day forward. They have both earned a lifetime of business from myself and my wife. I Absolutely and unequivocally recommend Sam and Bailey!|
|Sam was amazing during the whole home selling and buying process. He was patient and responsive to every need. His attention to detail, support, knowledge, and attentiveness was unparalleled. What can be a stressful process was an enjoyable, positive one. I will recommend family and friends to use Sam and the Providence Group.|
|I interviewed four different brokers before I decided on Sam Thomas. Sam asked all the right questions and had the most knowledge of the real estate market. His team also had the best marketing strategy by far of all the brokers we interviewed. They made the process so simple and seamless. At the end of the day we were very happy with the end result.|
|Sam is an incredible realtor in every possible way. My interactions with him exuded a wealth of knowledge and professionalism. As a first time homebuyer, I had no idea what I was doing but Sam alleviated all of my concerns. He was thorough in his explanations and education of the home buying process. He was very patient and did not pressure me in any way. I never felt rushed working with him. He definitely handles his relationships with integrity and poise. Working with Sam during the home buying process was the best decision I made. I highly recommend him. When you find someone who is good at their job, you want to stick with that person. I hope to use Sam for future ventures.|
|I'm an inactive Realtor who has held a license for over 20+ years. To say I know the business is a profound understatement. When I arrived in the Dallas area, I looked all through the metroplex for a home on my own. Many Realtors would not even answer my calls. Many, who did answer, knew nothing of the market for which they were representing buyers. Frustrated and exhausted we reached out to Sam. He met us immediately, and established an instant presence of professionalism. Not only was he knowledgable of several surrounding markets, but also with current events that directly impacted our buying decision. The real test was after we signed our buyer representation agreement. Sam and his team went to work immediately on the exact specifications we were looking for and in a short time found the perfect home for our family. The work did not stop there. Sam and his team have a concierge service that helps you along the buying process. I wish I had this kind of service when I was in the business. The service set up utilities, gave me names of options, as well as local area serving companies like landscapers or painters. In addition to that excellent customer service, my husband and I didn't have to remember a single date. They were in charge, and we were glad for it. The whole sale process went without a hitch. In fact we closed weeks early. I just want to reach out and thank Sam and his team for the incredible kindness, and the incredible efficiency. Their team is worth every moment of your valuable time.|
|Sam is very responsive & thorough. Anytime we texted with a house NO MATTER the location he is ready to schedule. He is very helpful during showings and will help you spot things that you may over look! His knowledge helps take away a lot of the stress involved in looking for a home!|
|Very patient and understanding person can spend days until you get satisfied morning 10 am to 7 pm no issues will travel where you want to see from little elms to Wylie tx up and down twice including Frisco Plano|
|He and his team were extremely helpful throughout the entire process and worked to make sure we got what we wanted. 10/10 recommend if you are considering him and his team to help you with the home buying experience, you won’t regret it.|
Give, give, give and then give some more in our business dealings, personal relationships, and everything in between... it's the right thing to do!
