Apart from driving my Holden Torana everyday (it sure beats a stereotypical German car), outside of real estate I enjoy time with my daughter, partner and CrossFit, which enables me to enjoy good food and IPA’s on weekends. #dadbod.
After our family home burnt down in the 2003 Canberra bushfires and the mediocre experience my parents had in renting then purchasing again in 2004, I started real estate in 2006. Now after 14 years with a major Canberra franchise I am ready to do real estate my way, welcome to Edge Sam Buchanan. Along with residential sales, I am excited to deliver property management and buyers agency services with the commitment, communication and clout I feel only the owner of the business can deliver.
In 2019, 81% of Sam’s business was repeat & referral based.
Being 4 out of every 5 homes sold, this is evidence of Sam’s continued ability to deliver on his promises.
Being agile and moving away from the franchise model is the way I see real estate heading and was the driving force to start my own business. ‘Turning a speed boat is easier than turning a tanker’. The franchise structure with the ‘high street’ bricks and mortar setup that I felt was ideal for me and relevant to consumers back in 2006 is no longer true.
Welcome to change, and welcome to Edge Sam Buchanan!
It can be difficult to choose an agent. There are many factors to consider, but one of the key things to look for is evidence that they can do what they say they can do. While commission plays a part of the selection process, the best value agent is the one that sells your home for the highest price, not simply offering a low commission.
One way to predict your future selling outcome is to look at all agents’ track histories. To help you do that, I’ve collated mine which I can download above,”Sam’s Sold Stories’ that will give you an insight to my performance in achieving premium results consistently.
