I contacted Sam after he was referred to me by a friend who knew him personally. I interviewed him and one other realtor. He has a good balance between sticking to business and being friendly. I had three transactions to make (2 sales and a purchase) that all hit at once. He juggled them artfully, all the while making me feel like I was his only client. He was an excellent intermediary between me and the other parties in the transactions. He also priced my properties perfectly and helped me to identify which repairs were necessary and provided amazing photography that really showcased the properties that I sold. Both of my sales properties had solid offers within 24 hours of being on the market!!!! He also helped me find my dream home and helped me negotiate a good, fair market price. He was there to the end, helping me with a leaseback until my new home closed and even hiring a haul off service at the last minute when I got stuck in a pinch. I would absolutely recommend him to friends and would do business with him again in a heartbeat! Bonnie Lister
Sam made it possible to list my house and receive an offer during the time that I was already living away from Austin. He is patient, explains and takes one through the process. I always felt like I was his most important client. Thanks Sam!Sylvia La Fuente
I worked with Sam to purchase and lease several investment properties in Round Rock. He knows the area very well and helped me pinpoint neighborhoods, specific properties, and tenants to meet my investment goals. He even found a few deals before they showed up on MLS. Sam is one of the sharpest realtors I've ever worked with and his relaxed style often kept the other party engaged during tough negotiations. Sam has also been there after the sale and helped me and my wife many times when he could have easily said no. Sam is the real deal.Ryan Thomas
I can't recommend Sam more highly. Starting with great advice on how to make minor changes to sell my current home, including suggesting a photographer that took some incredible pictures that really made my listing unique.
While looking at homes, he didn't show me anything that wasn't what I had asked for and did all the upfront work so all I had to do was show up and check them out, it saved me hours of time by presenting all the facts and having a great online search tool. He found some real gems I hadn't seen online in my own previous searches.
Once I found my dream home, the best part started! I was nervous about negotiating too strongly and losing the house I really wanted, but Sam handled it all like a professional and had great negotiating skills, you can tell he has a lot of experience in this area. I ended up with the house at a lower price than expected and was elated! I was extremely happy with the overall process, it was smooth and efficient and I had not experienced that in the past. Loved Sam and the services he provided, he is top notch.New Home Buyer, Hyde Park
Sam is a very knowledgeable agent, with regard to the real state landscape of Austin and the real estate process. Our first experience of buying property was painless, due to his able support through the whole process. I highly recommend him and Juice homes if you are looking for a real estate agent in Austin He and RAM Austin also manage our property for us. He has tremendous contacts and gets any job done with a quick turn around. We sleep well at night many miles away knowing that Sam is in charge of our property in Austin. A great person to work with, Sam is someone you can count on, someone you can always call anytime with a question and someone who you can trust!!New Brentwood Resident
Sam has now worked with us on three investment property purchases. He is responsive, and his advice is honest and professional. He knows the Austin real estate market well from almost two decades of experience and brings all of it to each situation. He does not recommend deals just to push things along and get a fee - he genuinely wants to ensure that we do the right thing. Multi-family Investor, India
Since 2011 I have bought 5 properties through Sam Archer personally and his company Juice Homes, as well as a number of properties that we made offers on but did not purchase either due to excessive competition or the discovery of underlying show stopper issues. So I feel I have a good grounding to speak about Sam's skill set. His skill set is actually quite remarkable because he blends a razor sharp mind with an affable personal style that sees the forest and never gets hung up in the trees. Egos always are an issue in any real estate purchase and Sam never lets them divert his clients' eyes from the prize they seek, either as Sellers or Buyers. It is a unique and rare combination of big picture talent and small detail awareness that makes Sam Archer an absolute go to person in that business.Rick Rappaport, Portland, Oregon
Sam is a very knowledgable agent, who will not only help you find the perfect home, but even helps you after the sale. He got us into our dream neighborhood in Central Austin. He really listens to what you want and need and is very patient through the whole process. We still call on him for recommendations for anything we may need. He has lots of great contacts and we have never been let down. We will definitely be using Sam again when it's time to move into our next home. He is highly recommended!!!Blakely R, Pemberton Heights
We loved working with Sam throughout the entire process of buying and selling our home. In particular, we appreciated his professional approach that was grounded in facts rather then emotion. This was helpful in navigating multiple contracts and making sure that we settled on the best possible price for the sale of our home. I'd sell another home with him a million times over!!!Connor Duffie, Austin
I have never found a realtor quite as super hero as Sam. He is friendly, professional and knowledgable. I found him thru an old boss 7 years ago, and he immediately helped me buy my home. Since then I have used him to lease 2 homes and purchase another family home. He has had to deal with a lot for me and always does it with a smile. He continuously provides excellent service. I highly recommend him to everyone!Valerie Bachman, Buyer
Sam is a consummate professional. He knows his real estate business and the market in great detail. He gave generously of his time, his knowledge and himself, and even got his hands dirty when he helped me with home repairs. Sam has left no detail or stone unturned in meeting my housing needs. Sam is a gentleman. His core strengths consist of creativity, honor and brilliance.Dan Herron
Sam was an incredible resource during my homebuying experience. He was knowledgeable, accessible and exceedingly capable in what for us was a new experience - buying our first home. Thanks Sam! Kate Dawson, Austin
We can't say enough great things about Sam's successful sale of our home for us. Because we were navigating both the selling side (selling our home) and the buying side (buying a new home) simultaneously, it was great to have Sam helping us ensure the timing worked well for us. Our experience was second to none and we'll gladly recommend Sam to any friends and family we know who are looking to sell or buy a house.Bill and Susan Watterston, Austin
Trust is key with a good real estate agent and Sam is very trustworthy. He has helped us buy two rental properties. He is very knowledgable of the Austin market and did a lot of the heavy lifting in terms of eyeballing all of the properties we have looked at over the last two years. We are now to a point with Sam where we do not need to look at the homes in order to make an offer because of our relationship and his knowledge of the rental market. He is also connected with sub contractors so he is really helpful post purchase as well. Sam also manages our properties and has done a great job.Tory Upchurch
Sam is an incredible realtor (and person). He is incredibly easy to work with, always available to talk and clarify things, and to show you as many properties as you would like to see. He really takes the time to get to know his clients and to understand what they are looking for, rather than having his own agenda. He really does his homework, communicating with sellers and other agents when needed, and is always easy to reach (even on weekends and in the evenings). He is also extremely likable and charismatic. He knows Hyde Park super well and is well connected with other agents who focus on this area. We could not be happier with our experience working with Sam and will highly recommend him to friends and family. You cannot go wrong with him!Virginia and Janani
Sam is AWESOME. He is sincere, very responsive, while at the same time very laid back. I never feel like he is a slick salesman- like some realtors. He is relaxed, takes his time with you, will answer any questions easily and you can trust him. He is very experienced and knowledgeable in the Austin market. Even though the Austin market moves fast, he doesn't panic or make you feel rushed, all the while he's "on it".
He helped me buy my first house and for the reasons above- I called him when I wanted to sell. Everything he advised me on from when to place my house on the market, to price, was right on. We had several offers on my house within 72 hours. He already knows when I am ready to buy again, I will be calling him.Grace Bullock
Sam first helped us rent a condo when my wife and I got married. He found us a space that perfectly fit our needs for the period of life we were in. A few years later, he helped us navigate the stressful but ultimately rewarding experience in buying our first home. Aside from finding an incredible deal, and a home that met our dream criteria, he even went so far as to make some improvements on the home WITH HIS OWN HANDS that was holding up the deal from getting closed. It earned our lifelong respect and loyalty, but more than that our friendship. Oh did I mention that we're neighbors now? Sam breaks the mold from what we ever came to expect from a realtor. He's genuine, highly educated, and service oriented (probably picked that up from his time in the Peace Corps in Guatemala). We recommend him with the highest possible rating here on Yelp as we have with all of our friends and colleagues.Greg and Greta Kwedar
