After gaining degrees in both Law and Science and establishing successful careers in consultancy and as a solicitor, Sam decided to pursue a long term interest he had in real estate. The sharp intellect, well honed communication skills and eye for detail that helped him excel in his previous roles have proven invaluable with assisting his clients to achieve their real estate goals.
It is the relationship building aspect of real estate that most appeals to Sam who enjoys nothing more than exceeding his client’s expectations in terms of the level of service he delivers and the ultimate result achieved.
As a resident of St Kilda East, Sam has a thorough knowledge of the City of Port Philip and surrounding markets and an appreciation of its many attractions to home buyers.
Real Estate has run in Sam’s family for generations with his brother Edward now a leading inner city agent. In his spare time Sam likes to keep fit, travel, surf, and listen to music.

Dear Sam, We are writing to express our thanks to you and the Marshall White Team for the fantastic result you achieved for our apartment sale, especially in what has been a difficult and unpredictable market. We appreciated your friendliness, intelligence and professionalism right from the start, and were impressed with the approach and selling strategy you developed for us. Throughout the campaign you guided us with advice and assurance and then when it came to the business end of things you read the market perfectly and negotiated a fantastic result for us, which we don't believe we would have achieved in the hands of any other agent. We could not be happier with our sale and with our decision to select you and Marshall White, and sincerely thank you with helping us with one of the most important transactions of our lives. Many thanks,
Dear potential Marshall White client, In February 2012 I selected Marshall White to represent me in the sale of my townhouse in St Kilda. I chose them based on their quality level of service and the relationship they were willing to build with me, Their pricing was very competitive and only slightly above the other two agents I met, but the detail of their campaign and their willingness to understand what I wanted set them apart from their competitors. I dealt directly with Sam Hobbs after being introduced by Mathew Elder and I can honestly say Sam was fantastic. Sam listened, understood and provided ‘value add’ ideas which are particularly important in today’s market. Townhouses in St Kilda are not common, but Sam was able to determine who a potential buyer would be, present the house to attract that buyer, and then was able to find that buyer. He actually saved me about $5,000 in renovations which were not required. Not only does Sam understand the market he is also excellent with his communication skills. He always kept me up to date with the campaign with updates after every inspection and also every interaction with potential buyers (even after 8pm if required!). We ended up selling the townhouse before auction which was my preference, at a price which met my price expectations. I would highly recommend Sam, Matthew and the Marshall White team to any person looking to sell a house. Well done and thank you. Regards,
Marshall White provide the latest sales and auction results, median property prices and suburb profiles to help you make more informed decisions when buying, selling or investing in property.
