My name is Samantha and I have been working in Real Estate for over 7 years and I absolutely love it! I am very detail oriented and may be slightly OCD but I feel like that's what makes me so great at my job! I grew up in the Bay Area(Go Giants!) but currently live in Folsom.

I love the outdoors and trips to Tahoe! I'm so glad that I found my place at SkyTC and get to work with amazing agents like Vicky!
