TESTIMONIALS
"Sam is the agent to CLOSE THE DEAL. He knows just how to handle multiple personalities and issues and work them out quickly behind the scenes. No stress for us. Thank you, Sam."

- B. Maier
"We could not say more positive things about dealing with Sam Bayne and Atlanta Fine Homes Sotheby's International Realty. Sam's entire team took care of selling our home in Buckhead from start to finish. They helped us "prep" the house properly for the professional photoshoot and virtual tour and set the home up to show well to prospective buyers. Sam's knowledge of the area helped to set the right price early on in the sales process. Sam was helpful in finding us resources to address the buyer's service requests before closing - truly helpful during this Covid mess. We sold our home within 90 days and close to the asking price, which was exactly what Sam set as a reasonable expectation. We would absolutely recommend using Sam and his team."

- P. Bogard
"We have recently worked with Sam, and I would highly recommend him. He is honest, knowledgeable and very responsive. We did not have an agent when we showed interest in one of his listings; Sam represented us as well as the seller, and it was a pleasure to work with him."

- J. Infante
"Our experience with Sam was beyond expectations. We’d worked with other agents, but none brought the professionalism, responsiveness and market knowledge he did. Sam took the stress out of the home selling process, managing issues and taking on the inevitable challenges so we could relax and move on to our next home. Plus, he knew how to market not only locally but nationally to reach the most buyers and found us the perfect one. Can’t say enough. Beyond impressed!"

Sam was super responsive, kept things simple and negotiated phenomenally on our behalf. He made it easy and got us the best deal possible."

- B. Walker
"I am a developer in Atlanta and have worked with many of the top agents. It’s no wonder why Sam Bayne continues to be one of the top agents in Atlanta. Today, Sam Bayne sold a house for me, and we ended up getting 95% of the asking price. We were able to get close to our asking price because Sam priced the house correctly. He knows the market and is respected by other agents. He is a total pro, has incredible marketing knowledge and skills and just gets it done. He understands that real estate is a service business. He is professional, courteous, honest and reliable. His presence on social media is navigated by an expert staff. Sam is a rock star when it comes to agents. If you’re selling a house, hire a real pro."

- B. Dye
"As an attorney, I needed help in selling a client's beautiful, upper-end estate home and acreage in a sparsely populated, rural area. Sam and his team did a great flyover video, which gave the property much needed exposure to the wealthier surrounding metropolitan areas. Sam quickly figured out the pricing, worked with all potential agents and got the property sold in a timely fashion. In tense and pressuring moments, Sam remained calm and got the deal done. Everyone involved walked away satisfied."

- M. Anthony

"If you want the most knowledgeable, attentive, hard-working real estate agent in Atlanta then you must choose Sam! I can’t imagine using anyone else. His marketing team was incredible and he spared no expense getting our home seen in the best possible way. We listed our home at a time we thought was risky but Sam has so many contacts that we never felt he was short on prospective clients. We felt he made our home a priority even though he had other listings, he knows how to coordinate showings to give his clients the attention they need. He vetted the buyers and showed our home in the best possible light. His personal touch and expertise during negotiation were stellar. I have been an agent in NYC and I know the difference between someone who walks the walk and talks the talk. He is a straight shooter and his advice was spot on. He has an excellent reputation among his peers and a very impressive record of selling the most expensive homes in Buckhead. He brings terrific energy and is always accessible. He will always get right back to you if he misses your call. I would highly suggest you call Sam Bayne when you are ready to BUY or SELL a home in Atlanta. Thank you, Sam, for selling my house!"

"Sam Bayne is truly the BEST real estate agent in Atlanta! His knowledge, expertise and marketing are second to none. Sam understands the Atlanta real estate market and is supported by extensive research and experience. He came to our first meeting with not only knowledge about my property, but all surrounding properties and the neighborhood. He brought pages and pages of documentation.

His team wanted us absolutely happy with the experience and did not disappoint whenever I asked for anything.

Sam is very impressive in his grasp of Atlanta real estate, his savvy negotiation skills, his attention to detail and overall confidence in his ability to get the job done.

We would hire Sam again and would highly recommend him to represent anyone for the purchase or sale of a home."

- Stiles Kellett

He gave us good input on getting the house in the best possible shape for sale, helped us with some great pictures and marketing and was consistently on-site to meet prospective buyers.

"Sam has an excellent reputation among his peers and a very impressive record of selling homes in our area. Indeed, his interoffice connections helped to sell our home in the first 24 hours.

He also helped us with the purchase of our condo through Atlanta Fine Homes Sotheby's International Realty and arranged for the closings of both residences the same day. We highly recommend Sam Bayne to purchase or to sell your home."

- Rebecca and Dr. Theodore Hersh
"Sam recently helped us both sell our home in Buckhead and purchase a new home in Sandy Springs. The sell-side went very smoothly, and we were most impressed by his advice on home preparation and the digital marketing materials he prepared to create strong demand for the property. We had good initial interest upon listing and were fortunate to close in three days at full asking price. On the buy-side, Sam was great at knowing the local market and background on many of the properties we were interested in. We did a lot of our own legwork on finding properties that matched our interests (Zillow is a great resource in that regard), and Sam was great at helping us filter our list quickly based on his understanding of many of the properties on our list (examples: "this one is close to a major power line," "that one requires significant inside remodel work"), which streamlined things for us significantly. Overall, we would highly recommend Sam to others looking for higher-end properties in the Atlanta area."

- Robin and Chris Hackney
"I interviewed several REALTORS® prior to making my decision on representation for the sale of my home. Sam, by far, had the best marketing plan and did not disappoint. The amount of traffic during caravans and open houses was excellent, and we had several offers. In the end, the transaction took several twists and turns that required creative negotiation to get the deal done. Sam handled everything and kept me out of the fray of a difficult buyer. I would highly recommend Sam to anyone selling their home, and he will be my first call when I get ready to sell again."

- Tammy Driggers
"Sam is a great negotiator and in tune with the market. Sam has represented me on the buy and sell-side and has done a wonderful job at both. We've completed three transactions together so far and have a current listing that is getting great exposure and legitimate traffic/buyers."

- Heather and Stephen Davis
"Sam worked with my wife and I, for about six months, searching for the right house. He kept us apprised of new listings and worked diligently to make sure that we got to see new properties as soon as possible. Sam has an excellent knowledge of the market and provided insight into the true value of various listings. Since we closed on our selected property, Sam has been very helpful in finding contractors and service personnel in the area to handle the odds and ends that come with a new home."

- Richard Ward
"Sam has bought and sold five homes for us in Atlanta without a single blip in the process. He knows his industry and the market and how to handle tense situations well."

“Sam sold our house twice given the first buyer defaulted all within approximately 90 days. Sam had excellent marketing materials, website and social media presence. He is professional, identified strengths in the home and featured them well. Also, very confident and works hard. If you work with Sam and do your part, he will sell your home.

“Sam came highly recommended from one of the top agents in Atlanta, and he did not disappoint. From the moment I gave Sam the listing, he initiated an aggressive marketing plan and ignited heavy foot traffic. In the three weeks my house was on the market, Sam attracted more than 30 showings. After three quick weeks, he got the offer I was looking for. I look forward to working with Sam on future projects!”
