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 Vail, simply put, is a fantastic realtor and a great person. Sam was there for us every step of the way. He could give a master class on customer service. His ability to respond quickly and to help take care of any road bumps along the way (buying a house during a pandemic has its challenges:) was super reassuring, and helped make buying a home less stressful for sure. When we first starting going around town to open houses to see what we really wanted and could afford, every listing agent to a tee, stopped and smiled, and said they knew Sam, loved working with Sam, or talked fondly of him. He also put us in touch with a mortgage lender who was extremely on top of him game as well. It's comforting to know how well connected Sam is and the years of expertise he brings to the table. He's also a darn good guitar player and kind of funny at times too. We love our new home! Thanks, Sam!

We bought our first home this fall with Sam's help and it was a great experience. As first time buyers we had endless amounts of questions and he was super helpful, patient, and understanding of our anxieties. We ended up buying the second house we put an offer on, after being outbid on the first, and he was there as a positive presence through the ups and downs of the journey. His way of working put us at ease and made the whole thing a lot of fun! We'd definitely recommend him to anyone looking in the Ann Arbor area.

Sam is extremely honest and does not play games. He will tell you what he can get for your house and what has to be done to get it. Sam is an adept negotiator and goes to work for his clients.
