After recently joining Abercromby’s, Licensed Estate Agent Sam Goddard caught up with journalist Nicole Brooks to discuss his life away from the office and his passion for real estate.
As soon as I struck up my conversation with Sam Goddard, bystanders would have most certainly had the impression that we were close friends who were catching up rather than people who had just met minutes earlier.
Immediately engaging and keen to discuss a wide range of topics, Sam lights up when talking about his upbringing in Geelong. The son of a successful small business family with franchise interests in Subway and Muzz Buzz Drive-Thru Coffee, he learnt from an early age about the dedication and hard work required to achieve ongoing success.
When he was 14, Sam’s parents decided to sell the family home and met with a local real estate agent. The agent’s confidence and good nature made a massive impression on Sam who promptly decided that he wanted to be in real estate.
At 19 he set the wheels in motion but not before a brief foray into a marketing degree. He quickly realised that if he wanted to pursue his passion for real estate then he should go directly to the source and get a job in the industry. Ever since then he has remained committed to consistently developing his knowledge, keen to provide the latest information and resources to his clients.
When time permits, Sam heads down to the Bellarine Peninsula to spend time with his family. He appreciates the gently paced lifestyle, especially at Point Lonsdale and Barwon Heads where he regularly plays golf. He is also a bit of a foodie who is always ready to experience new and exciting dining experiences in the city and suburbs.
Sam tells me that he was born to sell; that he derives so much pleasure from building rapport and strong relationships. To me this is abundantly clear – we’ve talked about everything, from my kids to his exercise routine and everything in-between.
Right now, he is in his element – selling a luxurious warehouse development in Fitzroy. Recently achieving a strong result of $2.6 million, there would be no doubt that Sam’s 14 year-old-self would be very pleased
A boutique winery and residence is on the market, and will appeal to discerning wine lovers.
Winemaker Philip Murphy has listed his Mornington Peninsula residence and winery for private sale with an asking price of about $8.5 million.
The move comes after the property, which has views across the southern end of Port Phillip Bay, was passed in at a private auction late last month.
Murphy built the Mediterranean-inspired property at 484 Purves Road in Main Ridge about eight years ago and harvested the first grapes from the 0.8-hectare vineyard in 2007, under his label Philip Murphy Estate. Read more…
