A Lake Norman resident and Charlotte recreation enthusiast, Sam Sparks produces and hosts our podcast "Carolina's Luxury Real Estate." As the son of a seasoned Realtor, Sam has grown up with an intimate view of the real estate industry. He spent much of his youth accompanying his father on listing appointments, and he would later help to manage their rental and investment properties for over a decade. Through these early experiences, Sam developed a passion for remodeling and updating homes to increase their value prior to sale, which finally led him to his real estate career.
Prior to his real estate endeavors, Sam moved to Nashville for college and later worked as a Sales Manager at PSAV, where he frequently collaborated with major hotels and high-end clients. Sam earned a Bachelor’s degree in Audio Production and has worked a variety of jobs in the music industry, from being a stagehand for large events to working for major recording studios as an engineer and production assistant. Sam even designed, built, and managed his own recording studio for 6 successful years, where he learned the challenges of running a small business and collaborating with a varied clientele. Though born in Houston Texas, Sam has also lived in Arkansas, Tennessee, and now North Carolina, lending him a special sensitivity to relocating clients.
Today, Sam resides in Huntersville with his girlfriend and enjoys spending weekends boating, hiking, attending live shows, and checking out the newest restaurants from Charlotte to Lake Norman. A passionate creative with a foundational understanding of the buying and selling process, Sam brings enthusiasm, local knowledge, and personalized guidance to his clients throughout their real estate transactions.
