Sam Slater, REALTOR®/Broker, F. C. Tucker Company

When you’re looking for the kind of personalized service and responsiveness that existed before the world became automated, look to Sam Slater. While he embraces technology as a tool to help him communicate with clients and market his listings, he also believes in old-fashioned activities like face-to-face conversations, answering his phone, listening carefully, and being responsive to his client’s wants, needs, questions, and concerns.

When meeting a new client, Sam’s first priority is to actively listen in order to gain insight into how he can best address their specific wants and needs. Based on his belief that knowledge of today’s market leads to good decisions, he then aims to empower his clients with relevant information to assist them as they move through the process of buying or selling their home. When clients know what to expect at each step, it brings a sense of calm while alleviating stress and uncertainty, making the entire transaction more enjoyable for everyone.

Experience is the best teacher, and Sam brings a wealth of it to his role in helping buyers and sellers in Ft. Wayne and the surrounding area. A true “people person,” Sam’s favorite part of being a REALTOR® is the opportunity to become acquainted with so many interesting people while helping them realize their goals. A native of Fort Wayne, Sam enjoyed a successful career at a leading competitor for over 10 years before joining Malcolm & Schlueter Realtors. He respects the fact that this is not like any other purchase; your home is where you live and raise your family. This sense of empathy for the emotion that goes into buying or selling a home could be the reason why so many of his former clients are his present friends.
