    Hello, and Welcome! I know choosing an agent to entrust with one of your most valuable possessions can be a daunting process. Buying or selling your home can be one of the most stressful things for individuals and families to go through. After having spent the last 20 years of my life working in customer service, I know exactly what it takes to make you my Number One Priority. Backed by an incredible brokerage and amazing team, it will be our honor to make this process as smooth and simple as possible.

    A little about me:
    I was born in San Francisco, California, to an amazing single mother. Everything I am today, everything I have done, seen and experienced I owe to all her hard work and sacrifices. Following in her steps, I pursued a dance called West Coast Swing from early childhood and ended up turning that into a career. Long story short, I traveled all over the United States and Internationally, dancing, teaching, competing and judging large 1000+ attendee events. After growing up in Sonoma County, I moved to Austin Texas to attend the McCombs Business School at University of Texas. After two years, I was offered a chance to move to London, England, to grow the European dance community and I took it. I was fortunate enough to see so many parts of the world including, Scotland, France, Spain, Sweden, Austria, Hungary, Poland, Italy, Russia, Australia, New Zealand and Brazil. At 23 years old, I moved back to the United States and settled in Southern California. While dancing, I held many other types of jobs from Retail, Sales, American Airlines Ramp Agent, EMT, FireFighter Trainee, and now Realtor. After over a 20 year dance career, I decided to transition into Real Estate and then met Richard and Maryann Moore who welcomed me into Coldwell Banker Platinum Properties. I could not say enough wonderful things about my brokerage, not only do they treat me like family, but they have an immense amount of knowledge and support to assist myself and my clients with any possible issue that could ever arise. My ultimate life dream is to use my income from Real Estate to create a non-profit which will give back to my local community, and more specifically help domestic violence survivors and LGBTQ youth. I absolutely love everything about helping my clients in their home transitions, and I couldn't personally thank every single one of them enough, as each closed transaction is one step closer to getting my non-profit off the ground!

    If there is anything at all I can assist you with, send me a message and let's grab a coffee!

    Samantha did a fantastic job helping me buy my condo. First off, she stuck with me during my months of indecision during 2020 as I wasn't sure where I wanted to be. We viewed a lot of properties together and I was able to better figure out what I wanted. I never felt pressured to make a choice and she was always happy to show me more homes. Her responsiveness and speed are what let me get my home and do so at a fair price. Once we found a property I liked, we submitted an offer at once and Samantha continued to stay on top of the transaction at every step. This kept me in the number one buyer position until we completed the deal. Once we were in escrow, we closed in 20 days with Samantha's help coordinating everything and staying on top of the seller's agent. Samantha was always friendly and helpful. I felt confident having her represent me during the home buying process. I highly recommend Samantha for your home purchase.

    I was looking to go in half with my brother on my first home a few years back and Samantha was amazing. She was a one stop shop for all the expertise we needed from financing to inspections, contracting, and zoning laws for adding a guest home to the property. She does her homework and will go to bat for you, you couldnt ask for a better agent especially if youre new to the whole home buying process!
    Liza gave Samantha 5 stars out of 5
    I'd definitely have waisted a ton of time with anyone else, Samantha made the process clear and made me feel completely at ease about decision making and vocalizing my thoughts. She is organized, helpful, and makes the complicated parts as easy as possible. This is an extremely stressful process and I couldn't imagine trying to tackle it with anyone else.

    Samantha took all of my needs (price range, yard for dogs, proximity to work and play, etc) and found my perfect match. Extremely professional, responsive, and kept on going until we found something just right.

    Samantha made our home selling process easy and smooth! Her guidance and help was very much appreciated. We will definitely refer family and friends to her in the future. She is knowledgeable, helpful and made this process incredibly easy. We can not say enough great things about her!
    Wendy gave Samantha 5 stars out of 5
    I highly recommend Samantha Buckwalter from Coldwell Bankers. Not only did she sell all four properties quickly, but she also provided the best customer service of any realtor I have ever used. She was almost always available when I called her, and when she was not, she did not keep me waiting long. Samantha guided me through the entire process and gave great advice when needed. She truly went above and beyond. Thank you Samantha, you have made a client for life.
    Jeff gave Samantha 5 stars out of 5
    We worked with Sam on both selling and buying. Particularly with the properties that we were selling, she went well above and beyond in dealing with some challenging situations that included working with existing tenants and cleaning out properties prior to sale. When buying, she was very patient with us when we kept changing our minds about things. We could not have asked for a better partner through these processes.

    Samantha is a hardworking, compassionate, and responsive individual. I am ever so lucky to have been able to meet her and have her guide me on my journey. Grade A+ human being, highly recommended.
    Dano gave Samantha 5 stars out of 5
    Samantha is absolutely the best. She was able to help me find my dream home. I have worked with many realtors and she been able to help me with finding the right location, meeting my checklist about location and amenities, and was even able to suggest other parts of her team in financing to assist make my experience as easy as a home purchase can be. I appreciate her ability to take on the project as a whole and ask all the right questions that I needed to have answers to. Even the answers to the questions I didn't think to ask. All in all my experience with Samantha was 5 star. The process would not have been the same without her. Thanks Samantha

    Michelle gave Samantha 5 stars out of 5
    Samantha helped me buy a house in Fallbrook and sale a house in Hacienda Heights. Early on, we were just looking, and saw a property we really liked. I was scared to think about a move, but Samantha gave me space when I needed it and nudges when I needed to act. With Samantha's help we put in a contingent offer and listed our home with her. We were able to pay under list price for our new home and closed at over 30K above list on our home. She was always responsive to my calls or texts, and usually had already started or inquired the other party of something I was going to ask. She was extremely helpful with dealing with the sellers and buyers which can be difficult at times. She always remained confident and cool under pressure.
    Sharon gave Samantha 5 stars out of 5
    Samantha was very professional and easy to work with in a tough situation. This was an estate sale and took about 8 months start to finish. She was patient and understanding of my needs as a first time executor. She was very helpful in getting the details of everything from cleaning, to repairs to the estate sale nailed down. I decided to work with her in the beginning because I knew her in another situation and trusted her. I was not disappointed. If she doesn't already know the answer to something she has no problem finding out and getting back to you. I absolutely recommend her and their firm for any real estate needs.
    Marylou gave Samantha 5 stars out of 5
    I loved working with Samantha to find my new home! I gave her a few examples of what I was looking for, and she found 8-10 more houses. She did a great job at scheduling all the viewings in an efficient order. I found a house I loved within one day of looking and two years later I'm so grateful she found my home. I would highly recommend choosing her as your agent. She made the whole process easy for me, and she went out of her way to make sure everything was done in a timely manner.
    Helen gave Samantha 5 stars out of 5
    I have worked with Samantha for almost ten years now and I think her integrity, dedication, and tenacity are the best of almost anyone in her industry.
    Jeremy gave Samantha 5 stars out of 5
    Samantha was a great agent. She found a great multitude of houses on the market for rent and mapped out an intricate schedule for viewing up to 10 houses a day. She helped my brother and I negotiate to rent an awesome house in Irvine! I highly recommend renting with Samantha as she has a lot of knowledge on how renters think and how to find the home you're looking for!
    Julia gave Samantha 5 stars out of 5
    Samantha was recommended to me by my best friend, and I couldn't have been more pleased with the service!! She listened to all of my requirements for a house and took the time to walk my through my options. This was my first home purchase, and I felt like Samantha helped me understand every step of the process with no judgement. She was easy to get a hold of, even when I had trivial questions at odd hours. Finally, when refinancing a year later, I was unhappy with the broker I had chosen to go through. Samantha set me up with her mortgage expert who was not only pleasant, but saved me more money than I had expected. I would recommend Samatha to anyone looking to buy or sell in the Orange County area.
