Sam is the owner and founder of her own residential remodeling company as well as a licensed real estate agent in both Oregon and Washington. She and her husband, Travis, bought their Happy Valley home through the team that would become her brokerage, Opt Real Estate (then The Drew Coleman Team). The team also secretly video-captured his marriage proposal at one of their favorite places, Cannon Beach.

Sweet, fun, efficient, and hardworking, Sam has been in the residential industry since 2012. She graduated from Colorado State University with degrees in both apparel and interior design and with an offer already in hand for a position as a professional interior designer at a design/build firm.

Between her love for working with homeowners and three years’ worth of prodding from her Realtor® husband, she eventually became licensed as a real estate agent herself. Clients find that Sam’s eye for design can help them to see what is possible within a space while her attention to detail ensures no deadlines on the transaction are missed.

“My clients find ease and fun with our process. My purpose is to really get to know you and your family so together we can make this custom experience enjoyable and easy.”

In her free time, Sam writes pop punk songs with her husband and plays bass for the band they created, “all in ur head”. “Travis and I go to Guitar Center so often that a number of the employees know us by name.” In addition to auditioning for modeling and acting gigs, she loves to take their RV out to the coast or visit their favorite jaunts across Portland. They especially love Tusk NW, The Original Halibuts, and venues like the Hawthorne Theatre and Crystal Ballroom.

When they’re not walking the trails in their neighborhood, you can catch the couple alternating between the one-wheel and electric scooter. “Sometimes we bring our very athletic bulldog, Sonny. Rubble, our other bulldog, is not so athletic – he keeps the sofa warm for us while we’re cruising around the neighborhood.”
