Sam’s real estate career started when he couldn’t land a job in property management, so volunteered at a company managing apartments near Grand Valley to learn what he could. With an eager excitement to learn about the inner workings of real estate management, he showed up to his first day… to pick up dog poop. But he faithfully picked up that dog poop, and eventually began managing the properties. Two years later he partnered with Michael Napper to form Shift Management out of frustration with the industry’s practices, and a passion to help people create passive income.
Sam now lives in a small mountainous village of Costa Rica, managing the the numbers from afar and supporting the team. His wife enjoys the local organic foods, his 7 year old daughter is already dexterous with a machete, and his 4 year old son can walk across scorching sand with bare feet and not flinch. His long term passion is to found a non-profit for kids/teens to get out of the cycle of poverty, and maybe do some micro financing to help create sustainable communities.
