Real Estate rookie claims top awards: Sam Bowen – Harcourts

A sense of humour, cutting edge video skills, and a desire to make people happy when buying and selling homes, are some of the reasons why Sam Bowen is a rising star.

Sam’s not your average realtor. His high energy, optimistic approach has just earned him the Harcourts Four Seasons real estate group “Rising Star” award, among others.

Taking the title of top sales agent for the Harcourts Prebbleton office came as a big surprise at the awards in early May, as did finishing amongst the top 20 for the company.
“Being my first year, I was not expecting that,” he says.

Additionally, the rookie realtor was in Harcourts Canterbury’s top 20 percent of all agents, ranking 91st for the region.

Sam’s enthusiasm for his job is evident as he speaks, a smile in his voice and a desire to help those in the property market.

His humour is one of his trademarks, evident in the house tour videos he crafts for his clients, showing real homes for real couples, families, and investors. At the same time, his competitive nature guarantees that he is not only willing, but wanting to go the extra mile to ensure clients’ satisfaction.

“He makes the process of buying or selling property an enjoyable one,” says a delighted client.

A property owner and investor himself, Sam is keen to help investors climb the real estate ladder, and grow their property portfolio, with an emphasis on a straightforward, and stress-free experience.

“I fight for all my vendors and buyers,” he explains, adding that he has been using his negotiating skills for almost two decades, starting in his school years. “I just love dealing with people. My satisfaction comes from ensuring happy outcomes.”


As a youngster, Sam followed his property developer parents around, dreaming of the day he could do the same.

Previously from key account management roles, Sam whetted his appetite for dealing with people further, alongside a brief stint in mortgage broking. It was then he realised he wanted even more interaction in the property industry, and opted for buying and selling real estate.
When he’s not working, Sam enjoys staying fit and active through healthy living, sports, and love exploring the great outdoors with his miniature fox terrier, Poppy.

Sam’s videos are unique, and humour is his modus operandi. “I always have a smile on my face, [sometimes a grin] and I find that people emphathise with the videos, feeling they can live in the property being shown.

“It’s not just me standing in front of a property talking away. We go on a journey together which helps with a memorable first impression.”

“Buying and/or selling property is such a serious process. It’s understandably nerve-wracking, so I like to make it enjoyable, not a stressful experience. It doesn’t need to be that way.”

His focus last year was on learning about his new profession, and he says there is always plenty more to discover. Now his sights are also set firmly on being in the top 30 agents category for Canterbury, and on building his own brand. “I want people to know there is another way to buy and sell, and that is my way.” | 027 757 4731
