Sam Vail got into real estate over a decade ago after owning a mortgage company and working as a musician. Instantly a success in the Ann Arbor Area market, Sam landed the Rookie of the Year Award at a previous brokerage. "I always knew I had a knack for people, and my love of real estate coupled with my family's background allowed for perfect chemistry." The Vails have deep roots in real estate throughout North America dating back to 1640, with developments from Vail, Colorado, to Chicago and the Big Apple. 

Sam’s hallmark includes outstanding customer service and adept negotiations. "I've been a musician my whole life, and you tend to develop a negotiating power through all the hoops you have to jump through just to get on stage." Given Sam’s double major in economics and business, along with his years of work with appraisers, Sam shines as a pricing strategist and his listings do not stay on the market long.

His holistic approach to clients means he values “going the extra mile and providing more service than just unlocking the door and writing up a contract. I want to be their guide and resource for all things to do with real estate." 

Sam is a wizard at tracking trends and economics through Coldwell Banker’s cutting edge systems, as well as through systems he researches and seeks out on his own. His team watches trends and fluctuations in real-time, to stay in tune with the markets within the markets, the differences between what’s happening in Ann Arbor versus Ypsilanti or Dexter. 

He values team collaboration and places emphasis on expertise and empathy, “not a culture of salesmanship as much as it is a culture of highly developed expertise. Empathy is needed in our relationships with clients: real estate is probably the biggest investment a person makes. We don’t take that lightly.”

Sam is super easy to work with really great at what he does… He got my house on the market faster than he said he would and sold it in two days for well over asking! His whole team are rock stars from top to bottom. This was actually the second house he sold for me in two years and he killed it on both. I highly recommend requesting staging assistance as well from his partner Amy… She had my place looking so good it practically sold itself. Great people who are easy to work with.

Sam was a fantastic resource for my wife and myself, both first-time home-buyers. He guided us through every step of the process and patiently (and thoroughly) answered our questions! We would highly recommend Sam to anyone in the area.

My wife and I particularly appreciated Sam's expertise in spotting lemons, candor in discussing topics, and blunt summary of the difficult market. He helped us close on our ideal home as our first offer in the crazy busy seller's market.
