I can honestly say that I would not be moving into my new Condo if not for Sam.

I was looking for a specific property to fit my needs. Sam was extremely easy to work with I never felt pressured when looking at properties. Once I decided on the right property for me Sam took control and made it happen. I would 100% percent recommend Sam to my family and friends.

The BEST real estate agent I have ever encountered!

Personable, attentive, and responsive. Not at all confrontational as some agents are. Goes out of his way to help with issues/problems. I can’t recommend him highly enough! He represented me in this transaction.

Mike Dodak

My wife and I were at a crossroads deciding to make the move from Brandon, FL to Saint Petersburg, FL.

We had to sell our house to purchase the new one. We were doing property searches and setting up viewings with listing agents. Sam happened to be one of the Realtors we met with and we were truly impressed. Sam has an immense knowledge on the southern Pinellas county area from our experience. He also has a wealth of real estate related knowledge as well as financial resources. Sam will diligently and promptly do his homework, to find answers to any questions you present . Throughout the entire home selling and buying experience, he always kept us updated and shared his knowledge of the process. He did his job and prepared us to make decisions that we would never regret. This is our second house, but with all the knowledge and experience Sam shared with us, we feel like a home buying/selling expert. Sam really left us feeling confident in both transactions.

One of the best realtors I’ve had the pleasure to work with!

We were “shopping” We wanted to upgrade but had no certain timeframe.

We were routinely following the St Pete market via There we found an interesting potential house and contacted the agent, Sam Bennett. He was very engaging and presented the property well. Over several weeks we debated whether to take the plunge or not, but ultimately decided that was not the one. Sam had inquired about what our search parameters were and promised to stay in touch. While we were back up north, he sent us potential houses. One of them clicked and we proceeded to buy it. We have never met a more thorough and responsive Realtor, ever. He is simply the best. He addressed every detail with diligence. We were impressed from the start with his hustle. We always felt that he was genuinely on our side and offering us the best advice and assistance. After buying, we listed our other home with Sam which he successfully sold in a very timely manner.

If you're looking for an honest, hard-working, knowledgeable, and friendly agent, well, that's Sam for you!

Sam helped guide my wife and I through our first home purchase in the spring of 2021. The market in St. Pete was/is still hot, but with Sam's expert help we managed to land a home that fit everything we were looking for. Throughout the process, Sam listened carefully to our wants and needs in order to tailor his approach to the search. He was respectful of our time, easy to reach and always executed next steps quickly and efficiently. His knowledge of the local market is strong and he also helped us identify over-priced homes. Sam has a keen eye for details both inside and outside the home, and as an added bonus, is a landscape architect and can help chat through any questions about the surrounding land or drainage concerns. St. Pete looks like it will continue to be a competitive market for years to come. Having Sam on your side would be an invaluable asset as you look for your next/first home. If you're looking to purchase a home in the area, calling Sam should be first on your list!

There's simply no other way to put it—Sam Bennett is AMAZING!

An awesome person that truly cares about his clients. From start to finish, Sam was there above and beyond every step of the way and continues to assist with the little things months later. We were living in North Dakota looking for a house in Pinellas County and Sam made that process as smooth and straightforward as it could have possibly been. We made 2 trips to Florida and numerous Facetime viewings and only virtually saw the home we purchased and bought until the day before closing. From his upbeat attitude, his unbeatable honesty and integrity, to his detailed and prompt communications, to his thorough experience and comprehensive knowledge, Sam provided a level of service that is simply unmatched. His shrewd and persistent negotiating skills managed to get us a house that we could easily have made a profit on immediately after closing. But, we Love It and are so grateful that Sam was the first to call when we submitted

Don M.

Sam was great to work with- he represented me as a buyer for my Tierra Verde, FL townhome.

He showed me all of the properties that made sense and those that sold in the past. I was able to make a quick, competitive and successful offer. The transaction was handled smoothly and all of the paperwork was organized and well managed. Sam answered any questions that came up in a timely manner and made every effort to communicate when necessary. He obviously had a good relationship with the title company and lender, too. The entire deal was completed in under three weeks. I recommend Sam Bennett if you are looking for a competent, friendly and informed realtor. You will be very pleased with the results.

Sam was referred by a friend that is also working with him.

Sam was able to quickly resolve issues with the Sellers and facilitated negotiating well. Sam attended to every detail and seems to really enjoy his role. Your office staff at Tierra Verde were welcoming and a pleasure to deal with during our visits. Sam made our purchase very easy to complete.

Dorothy S.

The purchase of our new house was a complicated sale as I needed to sell my current house in order to buy another.

Sam worked very hard to make this happen and in the end we found a beautiful home for a respectful price that we are sure to have many years of happiness in. Also, he has a very kind personality, which you wouldn't think is so important but he really listened to our needs as buyers

Shantelle M.

By chance from the internet a year ago I was connected to Sam Bennett who assisted me in finding a condo.

At the time I was very favorably impressed with his real estate knowledge, professionalism, communications and negotiating skills. As a result of some health issues I needed to move back to a community that I previously lived in for some years. There was no one else who I thought could handle this dual real estate project except Sam. We were able to find a new home relatively soon and within no time he got a contract for the sale of my condo. He got me connected to mortgage and insurance providers as well as other services. We closed on the new home purchase first and we arranged for the closing in such a manner that I only paid one mortgage and maintenance fee payment at a time. Sam is easy to work with, a great negotiator and keeps you informed at all times. He is an excellent realtor who I enthusiastically recommend!

Bruce Bevins

Sam Bennett is the consummate real estate professional who combines intelligence, conscientiousness, and professionalism with a outstanding personality making the buying or selling (have done both with Sam) an actually enjoyable experience.

At my age I’ve needed to use a number of realtors over time but I can honestly say that Sam Bennett is the best one ever. B.Bevins

Sam is by far the best realtor we have ever worked with.

Helped us out with every aspect of home buying. Very responsive. Quickly researched every question we had. Great knowledge of the market and every aspect of home buying and financing. I would strongly recommend Sam for any home buying or selling.

Tim S.

Sam was a pleasure to work with.

He was incredibly responsive, straightforward and did what he said he would! His honesty and integrity are refreshing. Sam is knowledgeable about the area and was informative of the property that he was selling. We would be happy to work with Sam again in the future!

Jan H.

We can't speak highly enough of our experience with Sam Bennett.

From start to finish he was very responsive, kind, and a consummate professional. Sam brought in a fabulous photographer to showcase our home online. We had some difficult moments none of which were Sam's doing but I honestly can't think of anything that he could have done differently or better for us.
