Sam Garvey is an American success story! Her philosophy of "Believe it - Achieve it" is exactly what she's done all her life. Sam was born in a small fishing village in Vietnam. She graduated from high school at age fifteen all while working to help support her brothers and sisters. After high school, she went to work for Chase Manhattan Bank and continued to work there for several years.
Sam met her husband, Kevin, who was her manager at Chase Manhattan. They married in 1971 and moved to the Untied States. Life in the United States was "a dream come true". To overcome the language barrier, Sam took classes six day a week, eight hours a day and spoke fluent English in only six months. Sam takes the American Dream of home ownership very seriously and puts the same effort and perseverance into the representation of her sellers and buyers.

"Sam was an absolute treasure to work with. She was super proactive and helpful in teaching me the ins and outs of purchasing a home as this was my first time buying. She made my experience quick and easy by telling me how the process would work, what I needed to accomplish, and giving me options at every step. Despite my difficult schedule and some curveballs from others involved in the process, she was able to get me to the finish line. I highly recommend Sam and Gardner Realtors. "

"Sam was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. She knew the area and offered us invaluable advice and insight. We were not locals and she helped us understand the areas we were interested in and helped us make a purchased decision that we are delighted with. She is, by far, the best real estate agent we have ever used!"
"Mrs. Garvey was referred to me by word-of-mouth from a previously very satisfied client. I too am very happy with Mrs. Garvey ability to market and find a successful buyer for my property. The advertisement was first rate and photos gave the best impression of my property. She was with me every step of the way through the entire process. Her recommendations and assistance with the appraisal and inspection greatly contributed to the overall success of this sale. I too will recommend her to anyone who is ready to list their home."
"Sam was awesome! This was the second time Sam has sold property for me and the experience was nothing short of fantastic. She is very knowledgeable about the real estate market through her years of experience and is always staying abreast of current market trends. Sam takes all (well most of it) the stress and pressure away from selling your property because she handles everything from coordinating the stack of documents that need to be read and signed to showing the property and closing the deal. I pretty much just sat back and Sam did all the work. She offers advice that I would have never thought of but always leaves it up to the client to make the final decision. I brought Sam in early which I’m glad I did before I was even close to ready to list my home. She pointed out things I should do to my home in order to make it even more appealing to buyers. I listened to her and after completing a few small projects that she suggested, we listed my home. Well, she was right, my home sold just 5 days later. I couldn’t imagine doing all this without her. Sam is a professional and expert in her field with a great personality and a sense of humour to boot. I would’t think of using anyone else when it comes to hiring a real estate agent. Thank you Sam!"
"I've had the pleasure of working with Sam here at Gardner, Realtors for about 5 years now. Sam is very educated and professional and I'd recommend her in a heartbeat to help you list or sell your home."
