Serendipitous that we met Samantha one day while stumbling upon an open house. She has been a true partner and advocate for us as we sought our new change of daily scenery and neighborhood in East Austin—a super-competitive market.

Sammy tirelessly and cheerfully took us to house after house as we started to narrow down what exactly we wanted. In the end, her contract beat out EIGHT other offers. We are delighted to be closing this VERY DAY on our dream home.

In the end, we feel less like clients and more like friends. Thanks, Sammy!


Kudos to the Papasan team! I can't praise them enough. They do work as a team while helping each other.

I am an out-of-state home buyer and Samantha helped me with this transaction during a time the hurricane in Houston had just landed (yikes!). I made a quick trip to Austin for the first time to look at properties.

Despite lots of rain and strong winds, she didn't hesitate to her commitment to show me several great homes always with a big friendly smile on her face. 

Her communication skills and knowledge on the use of electronic communication tools were outstanding thus making it possible for me to complete the purchase of a home after my return to California. Big thank you!


It was a Saturday... my spouse and I had been actively searching for a multi-family property in Austin and felt that our realtor (at the time) was slow going, slow to respond, and always seemed busy. We talked about how we were moving faster than our realtor and something needed to change.

Samantha had been at our apartment complex regarding first time home buyers. I had explained our situation and right away she had answers, insights, and solutions.

I remember turning around to my spouse and saying that ...."Sometimes the answer knocks on your door"

1- Samantha is foremost hardworking, diligent, and disciplined -- going door-to-door is the hard work.
2- Samantha listens, cares, and is helpful -- always asking us how we feel through the process, letting us know about decisions being made in an informed way.
3- Samantha is reliable, responsive, and resilient -- always quick to give replies to messages and stays positive throughout the buying experience.
