For all your residential real estate needs in the Austin, Lakeway, Lake Travis, Bee Cave and Dripping Springs, TX area.
About Austin REALTOR® Sam Chapman
I've lived in the Lakeway/Lake Travis since 1987 and know the area well. Prior to real estate I spent four years substitute teaching in all Lake Travis ISD schools. If you have kids and want school information, I can help. Before that I had 18 years with Kinko's as a Branch Manager, Regional Operations Manager and Founding Shareholder. I love this community and am very active in it. If you want to see my bio, go to my website. I have been in residential real estate since 2004 and I have a good understanding of the Austin market and the buying and selling processes.
In addition ro listing and being a buyer's anent for residential real estate, I have been involved lately in ranch property for major developers. This is a very interesting thing to be involved in as it is all about who you know. Most of this land isn't on the market in a visible sense. If you are a developer and are interested in the Austin area, give me a call.
Growing up in a military family, I have seen more of this country than most people ever will. By the age of 12, I had been in every state except Hawaii. I have lived in Texas (six times), Massachusetts (twice), Michigan, New Hampshire and Alaska. Although my experience in Alaska was phenominal, Austin is the greatest place I have lived. My kids were both born here and have never lived anywhere else and I wouldn't have it any other way.
My passion is helping people. I approach real estate that way. I also approach my community that way. As a former Vice President and member of the Lakeway - Lake Travis Rotary Club, one of the responsibilites I have taken on has been being the Rotary liaison to the Lake Travis High School Interact Club. Interact is a community service club and the LTHS Interact Club has done some great things.
I am also very involved with the American Cancer Society. I have been involved in the Relay For Life of Lake Travis since 2002, chairing the event several years. Relay is an awesome event. There are three main purposes that we hold Relay: to honor cancer survivors, their families and care givers; to educate people about and raise awareness of cancer; and to raise money to fund research to find a cure.

Although I work all over the Austin area, I live in western Travis County. Some of the main areas I service are listed below. If you are interested in other parts of the Austin, Dripping Springs, Cedar Park or Round Rock areas, don't hesitate to contact me as I can help you there as well.
I wanted to thank you for your efforts in securing this home purchase. Given the fact that it was a foreclosed home, it was a difficult and challenging process to say the least. Despite this, it was a real pleasure working with you. I appreciated your sincere honesty and professionalism, something that I see less common in todays marketplace. There is no doubt that you had our best interest at heart. Do not hesitate to use me as one of your references for your future clients, I will gladly express to them that they are in great hands. Please feel free to stop by the house anytime. I look forward to talking to you.

Just wanted to thank you for all the work you have done for us. We are very happy to move to our new house and we're just amazed at how smoothly everything went. You've done a great job and really have become a part of our life these past six months. And wine and candle you've set up for us last night was awesome. We have truly received a Texas size welcome!
We'll have that house warming party soon! Consider yourself and your family invited!!!
Take care, Dmitry.

I told Jean, if I had not found you there is no way this would have gone as smoothly as it has. Anytime you need a very biased reference feel free to give my email address and I will tell them you walk on water.
