Sam Coburn, Owner-Broker

Whether you are a Buyer or a Seller, by choosing Sam Coburn as your agent, you can expect a relationship that will be built on knowledge, experience, and trust. I have the ability to truly listen to and understand my clients, a quality that often seems to have been forgotten in today’s fast paced society. I successfully and effectively represent my clients, as evidenced by the large numbers of referral and repeat clients. I service both Northern and Southern Michigan and know the market thoroughly for the buyer and the seller. I take pride in what I do and build my business one customer at a time. My many clients have come to know me as a top notch real estate expert and technically advanced in the multiple listing system. 90% of my business comes from repeat business and referrals. 75% of listings sold in Northern Michigan are purchased by down-state or out-of-state buyers. Lakeside Realty gives you the edge as a member of both a Northern Michigan Multiple Listing Service and Lower Michigan Multiple Listing Service. Some of the other advantages of going with Lakeside Realty are a full time licensed marketing specialist, informative and user-friendly website updated regularly, complimentary comparative market analysis, and aggressive advertising strategies – including other MLS’s and out of state advertising.
