    When I decided I wanted to buy a home, there was only one realtor that I thought of - Samantha! I had met her earlier and was so impressed with her professionalism. Samantha lead me through the process of getting a home. She helped me overcome hurdles that were preventing me from attaining my dream home. Her positivity made me keep the faith. We found a home for me and she got my offer accepted. It was truly a miracle. Her negotiation skills were outstanding. I kept overcoming the challenges and my loan was approved. This would not have happened without the diligent efforts of Samantha. At the eleventh hour something happened that prevented me from closing escrow. When I received an offer for employment in Phoenix, AZ, Samantha referred me to another realtor in her company. With Samantha as a cheerleader from the sideline, I got my dream home in the desert. Her dedication and never ending support kept me going through another escrow. I have nothing but heartfelt thanks for Samantha. She has made my dreams come true. I would recommend Samantha to anyone who needs the best representation in the quest to own a home.

    Samantha must be the best real estate agent in Southern California. She is a true professional. I have worked with 6 other real estate agents and none come close to Samantha. She is on top of everything at all times. She anticipates my questions and solves them before I even call her. We worked with a difficult escrow company on this transaction and she handled them so professionally. On top of all of this, this was a small deal for her, yet I felt like I was buying a multi-million dollar property. If you need a real estate agent and don't call her, you are making a mistake! Samantha is awesome!!!

    Samantha is absolutely amazing, every question we had she was able to not only answer but steer us in the best direction for us. She made us feel confident that we had her on our side and that she would do her best to get us what we wanted. We wound up with a place that we love, after some back and forth with the sellers Samantha made sure things worked out for us and that we were happy with the deal. I cannot recommend Samantha enough, if you want someone to truly represent you and your best interests, she is the one. Thank you Samantha!

    Samantha is professional, curtious, knowledgable and FUN. We were dreading the house buying process, but Samantha made it easy and fun. She listened to our wants/needs and found us the perfect home. Her job was not done at that point, she followed through with escrow like a champ. When things looked like they were going sidewise she worked her magic to get it back on track. She ALWAYS returns phone calls and emails straight away. It was comforting, as first time buyers, to know the Queen of real estate was on our side. Samantha is our new best friend!!!

    What a wonderful ride! Professionalism and dedication to the job Samantha is the agent to call. She made our mortgage experience easy and smooth as possibly as she can. Holidays and Sundays she is there for us. Comforting words from a friend instead of professional advice from an agent. Personal attention and heartfelt priority like of a million dollar transaction.Whether you are buying a $50K barn or $2M mansion you won't feel the difference if Samantha is your agent. You will be treated as a special friend and a very important client. ZipRealty is lucky to have her and we are very lucky to have worked with her.

    Natalia gave Samantha 5 stars out of 5
    Samantha is a phenomenal realtor. This was a very quick and smooth transaction and it is all due to her experience, knowledge and hard work. We worked well together and she was great throughout the entire process. Whatever she did it worked because I sold my house very quickly and for the price I wanted. She's very knowledgable about every single aspect of real estate transaction, ranging from knowledge of legal compliance requirements to visually assessing the house and recommending exactly what to change to make it more profitable. She's very honest and works really hard and is always available to answer any questions. The electronic docusign used my ziprealty makes the real estate transaction very easy. Great work! I would highly recommend her to anyone thinking of buying/selling or investing in real estate.

    When I first e-mailed Samantha to see if she had enough time to add me on as a client, she was very prompt in calling me back. She told me that she definitely had enough time to add me to her list of clients and so I gave her all my info and she said she would start looking for me. I did not have a very high budget for Orange County ( $175k-$185k). Within the first week, she took me to see one condo and it was very nice and it was in the "buyers assistance program". So I put in an offer on it and had to wait the three weeks for it to go through the city of Aliso Viejo, for my bid/paperwork to either be approved or denied. She told me I had an extremely good chance of getting it because I met all the requirements of the program perfectly. After that, everything went downhill. As many people with a low budget would know, condos go off the market within hours of being posted. I never once received an MLS update from her, even though she was supposed to link me into the MLS. I would call her as soon as I would see something on the Zip Reality website and she would not answer my call. I do understand that realtors can be busy with other clients, so I waited and waited and waited. She would take upwards of three days to return my phone calls and by then the houses were long gone to some other bidder. I even waited patiently for the three weeks for the decision of the city of Aliso Viejo on the ONLY house she showed me, and she called me to tell me that she decided I didn't have a good chance at it and do not give my hopes up anymore (the day before the decision was supposed to be made). I am almost 100% sure she did not get my paperwork in on time for the Aliso Viejo house and just didn't want to tell me that. After all that, she just COMPLETELY ignored my e-mail, phone call and text that I spread out over the next week, and I NEVER heard from her again. I'm sure she only puts her attention on people who have a big budget because she wants to make more money than her commission would be from my sale. After Samantha, I started with a new realtor and she scored me a condo within ONE month. I HIGH DO NOT RECOMMEND SAMANTHA. THIS SHOULD BE A HUGE WARNING THAT SHE IS A HORRIBLE REALTOR AND YOU SHOULD NOT USE HER. SHE'S RUDE, AND UNPROFESSIONAL.

    I am so sorry that I was not able to meet your expectations. I appreciate your feelings regarding your experience. I will do my best, in the future to be more responsive to my clients needs. In my defense, in this ever changing market sometimes it is difficult to have control of such program submissions. It may be a matter of moments or weeks in which we the agents are notified of acceptance. I make every attempt to help my clients by being proactive and reactive in a timely manner. I believe that I have represented my clients professionally and courteously. I am very happy that you have found a home that meets your needs.

    Samantha listed my home above the comps based on the improvements I had made and closed escrow exactly one month later with a full price all cash sale. She met every realtor at their showings to ensure my home was represented well. Her personal approach to getting me the maximum possible made the difference in my purchase from her of my next home, Couldn't be happier!

    I met Samantha in 2011 when my daughter told me she wanted to move from New York to Orange County to attend college. I needed a condo and Samantha helped me find the perfect one. Shortly after closing, my daughter announced she wanted to stay in New York so after 10 months Samantha once again helped me but this time to sell my condo. Sam is an expert at both buying and selling. She will never have you even look at something you are not interested in and she won't take an offer on your property unless she feels it is absolutely solid. There is a reason she is one of the best realtors in Orange County and that's why I chose her and that's why I will choose her again if I finally get to move out to California.

    Samantha went above and beyond for me. She spent more time helping me secure this stupid short sale than she did with her own family. I could not have gone through with the deal without her. She is terrific.

    Did a great job, followed through and did what she said she would do which creates great confidence, will be sending several friends to her that are interested in the same area we purchased in. When we met Samantha in person my wife and I knew we were very fortunate to have found her, we wanted to see multiple properties on the same day and only were able to give her short notice to get everything arranged. We flew in and out the same day and viewed seven properties in just a few hours only because Samantha was so prepared, with her guidance we made the right choice at the right price.
