Sam is the best real estate agent I've ever dealt with. His local knowledge is exceptional, he is completely honest and candid and works to serve his clients' best interests. In our case, he went above and beyond the call of duty and stored two kayaks we ordered in his OWN HOME. Sam came to us  through a recommendation and we couldn't be happier. Sam is very professional and easy to work with. He found us the house of our dreams and negotiated a very fair price. We could not be happier with our choice and WILL recommend Sam to anyone.

Great experience with Sam! He went above and beyond. We live in SoCal and he helped make the sale of our home in Tahoe extremely easy. He was hands on and always quick to act on all necessary actions throughout the sale process. Sam is knowledgeable, a great communicator and our best interests were always the priority. Tested and proven; Sam has earned our trust and respect for future business and referral for any future client! Rick and Sandi W. 1/13/2019
Sam balances your needs with his knowledge of the market and a down to earth presence as an agent. He helped me buy and sell property and I would not use anyone else! He made what can be a stressful process smooth and successful. He's the best! Olivia F. 12/18/2018
I had the opportunity to work with Sam Holmes for the purchase of my very first home away from home. I was eager to find something before summer ended and Sam was able to make this happen in less than 4 months. Sam is an excellent agent, who demonstrates exemplary client service through commitment and willingness to go the extra mile time and again for his clients. Sam was genuinely engaged, friendly and was able to deal with my challenging issues being that I was not local when making this purchase. I had total confidence in him working on my behalf from afar. Sam has also gone above beyond assisting me even after the closing. I am very fortunate to have reached my dream of owning my first vacation home. I was able to achieve this goal with such a positive experience because of Sam. Highly recommend!! Cherese M. 9/14/2018
When we met Sam for the first time, he was very thorough in assessing our needs and wants in a home. With his local knowledge of South Lake Tahoe, Sam was able to show us homes in areas that fit our needs and desires with both the style of home and location of the home. Sam stuck with us through  the entire process and helped guide us when the time arose. I would highly recommend Sam's services to anyone looking to purchase a home in the South Lake Tahoe area.

Sam helped me to buy my first home and I was very impressed with how smoothly it went. I was always able to reach him and he took the time to explain the process to me. Very helpful and knowledgeable, highly recommended. Annie C. 2/21/2018
Sam Holmes went above and beyond my expectations. He kept me well informed through out the entire purchase process of my vacation home. Great follow up, professional, excellent communication and easy to work with. I recommend Sam to anyone looking to buy or sell a home! Elizabeth S. 9/6/2017
Overall, such an amazing experience with Sam Holmes. Have used him 4 times and addicted to his great services, will use him again. Antonij T. 9/6/2017
There is no one better than Sam. Sam is the ultimate professional. He goes the extra mile and always answers his phone 24/7. I will never use another realtor. Sam is highly intelligent and I never have to worry about anything. Sam is the example of what a realtor should be. Hank P. 8/23/2017
Sam continues to impress. He is hard working, patient, and dedicated. He helped me purchase my home years ago, and it was an easy decision to use him when I decided to sell the home. Having moved around a lot over the years and not being able to meet anyone local it was great to have a relationship with a realtor I know I can trust. Sam made the process as easy as possible with electronic signatures and using all available technology. Above all; I know he always has my best interest as his highest priority, and provided me with knowledgeable recommendations to make decisions. Daniel J. 7/25/2017
Thanks Sam – you were on top of this process from start to finish. We could not be happier. Jack W. 6/27/2017
If you really want help call Sam Holmes. He has helped me with 3 transactions and I will never use anyone other than Sam. Give him a call and you will quickly see what I mean. Hank P. 10/4/2016
One weekend while camping in South Lake Tahoe, my husband and I decided to look at a property with some friends. We hadn’t scheduled anything with an agent so we weren’t sure it would be possible. We picked an agent randomly and Sam Holmes answered our call.

If you are looking to purchase a home in the Lake Tahoe area, Sam is your guy! He understands the local housing market, is very knowledgeable, pays attention to details and was attentive to our unique needs. He is organized, follows up with questions asked, communicates well, and moved forward with how we wanted to proceed.

Sam is self-motivated and conducts business with honesty and integrity. When it seemed like we may need to move on to look at other properties, he hustled and had a list of properties for us to look at. He was readily available by e-mail, phone, text or in person. Sam has an engaging personality which helped to ease our minds throughout the entire process.

Sam is an expert negotiator and made our home purchase a reality. Since we do not live in the area, Sam organized all of our inspections and was there to coordinate everything.

We closed on a home purchase with Sam’s help on August, 25, 2016. We are so excited to be spending time in South Lake Tahoe.

The workhorses of the typical real estate transaction are the people that coordinate the process. Sam Holmes is excellent at coordinating the different players to make a successful transaction a reality.

Thank You for EVERYTHING Sam!!

I appreciated how calm he was when the sale almost failed. He was able to work out a fair compromise for everyone. I liked his negotiating skills since that became extremely important to get the sale finalized.

He was readily available to help in many instances along the buying process. His knowledge of the area and help in determining what property would be worth considering was enormously important. Uses good taste, and common sense. I am very glad I used him. Also good sense of humor. Down to earth.
Janet T. 6/25/2016
This was not our first home purchase, but it was by far the most pleasant experience we have had buying or selling a home. Sam is knowledgeable, extremely responsive, and went above and beyond to ensure that our purchase was successful.

We do not live in the area, so there were several things that we were unable to do, but Sam did not hesitate to step in and handle every issue that arose.

If we ever buy or sell a home in Tahoe area again, we will definitely use Sam. He is highly recommended!

Sam is always available to answer questions and take care of issues. Even though he is juggling more than one client he has the ability to make you feel as if you ARE the only client. I have worked with a lot of realtors over the years and there is only one other realtor I would recommend. Integrity and follow-through are hard to find these days. It is obvious many realtors just care about “closing the deal” not what is best for the client(s). I never worry when working with Sam. I know he will ALWAYS “have my back” and even return the internet boxes for me! 🙂 Barbara P. 6/7/2016
We worked with Sam to find the perfect property in South Lake Tahoe to build our second home. He is extremely knowledgeable about the area, and with his industry contacts in South Lake Tahoe, our purchase was extremely streamlined and hassle-free, even with our complicated transaction. We even closed escrow earlier than anticipated. We look forward to working with him again on our next real estate purchase. Ally H. 2/27/2016
Sam is a pro! He quickly understood what we were looking for and really went the extra mile in working with us- we live in WA and we were looking to buy in Tahoe. He worked with our schedule and we ultimately found the place we were looking for. He understands the area and the business and we couldn’t have done this without him. Julianna O. 10/17/2015
Sam is the best realtor I have ever worked with. I have bought and sold over 10 houses. His knowledge as a realtor is great, but is knowledge of the Lake Tahoe market is even greater. From setting the price through the closing, he always seemed one step ahead…especially prior to inspection. This is where the seller can spend some money, or even have the deal fall apart. Sam picked off a handful of items I was able to fix prior to inspection. Saved me money and important time. Sam even came by and replaced burned out light bulbs just to confirm there wasn’t a bigger issue. Has your realtor ever changed your light bulbs? I have to add, the professional photos Sam had taken of my place were incredible! Certainly they helped bring fast and serious attention to my house. Sold and closed in less than 40 days. Thank you Sam!! Eddie G. 10/2/2015
Sam was great to work with and I would definitely recommend him to family and friends looking to purchase a home. He was quick to respond to any questions via email, phone or text message. He was helpful in any way we needed and always went the extra mile. He really understood what we were looking for and found our dream vacation home the first showing! Easy to work with, reliable, honest….everything you want in a real estate agent. Thank you Sam! Carolyn P. 9/30/2015
Certainly the smoothest sailing I’ve ever experienced in buying a home. I think the seller was very happy with the outcome of our negotiations, too. Sam kept the process moving along quickly and efficiently. We’d recommend him anytime! Nancy H. 9/27/2015
I am an attorney from another county serving as a trustee who needed a responsible Realtor to handle a transaction involving an unusual property. Sam Holmes was suggested to me, and my experience with him was excellent. He was in constant communication, understood some unusual dynamics involving the sellers, answered my and their questions fully and honestly, and was very helpful in the escrow process. I recommend him highly. Robert B. 7/31/2015
We found Sam online based on very positive reviews we found about him. He returned our inquiry immediately. We were impressed with his professionalism, knowledge, experience and willingness to work with our unique situation. We decided to ask him to be our agent to find us a home and were very thankful we did.

He is very clear about why he would recommend a certain neighborhood over others and was able to answer all of the questions we had. He also treated us with great respect. We could not ask for any better outcomes and very happy that we met him.

Also, he was wonderful working with us from distance. We were relocating to Tahoe but felt no burden of buying while not actually there. He was very accommodating to make things as online as possible and was available just phone call or text message away all the time! We appreciate his dedication and professionalism and recommend him without any hesitation.

Sam was the greatest. We bought our first house and he helped us every step of the way. He was very flexible and available with every question and concern we had, which was a lot! We highly recommend Sam and we look forward to his service the next time we buy a house! Tim S. 9/1/2014
Sam is helpful without pushing. I appreciated that he was always searching properties for me, not just responding to my request for info. In fact without his diligence I would not be in the wonderful place I am now. He did not “disappear” with the close of escrow and continues to help me out. I have already referred him to other friends and will continue to do so! Barbara P. 8/27/2014
I used Sam Holmes to make the biggest home purchase of my life. I had just retired and moved across the country to buy in my retirement dream area of South Lake Tahoe. This was a long term 3 years relationship due to issues with my retirement. Sam handled everything I threw at him with ease and had the knowledge of the area and sub neighborhoods that were instrumental in my purchasing not just the right home , but the right area in Tahoe for me. Sam was there every step of the way, showing me options and telling the pluses and minuses of each local area, that were critical in my effort to purchase the right home at the best price. He took the time to listen to what I was looking for then offered tailored options based on the area market. I used the internet for much of my research but having Sam was the critical key to my successful purchase, he has my highest recommendation. Phil M. 5/31/2013
