Fiercely proud redhead Sam Goddard was born in Geelong and grew up behind the counter of his father’s Subway store. When he’s not selling property in Melbourne’s poshest suburbs, including Toorak and Armadale, he can be found on a golf course or coaching a women’s AFL team. Goddard lives in Richmond with his long-time girlfriend.


Tell me about your childhood.

I was born in Geelong. It was a sporty household; fiercely competitive, because I grew up with two brothers. When I was three I was in a car crash. My father was T-boned at an intersection, and I had internal bleeding. It was touch and go. We spent a few months in hospital.

What was your first job?

Dad owned Subway stores. I worked with him from when I was 14 as a sandwich artist. I was also on the meet and greet. I loved it. You’re dealing with a lot of people and that’s what I enjoy.

How did you get into real estate?

I’d done work experience with a real estate office when I was 15, so I knew that’s what I wanted. After school, I spoke with all the top agents in Geelong. I asked them, if I were their son, what would they recommend I do? That led to a small boutique firm offering me a cadetship; I worked there for 15 months. In 2012, I moved to the city, to Armadale.

What do you love about real estate?

The people. I just love meeting them and learning their journeys and developing long-term relationships with clients. That’s probably the most rewarding aspect. Plus, I love the chase, especially coming from a competitive family.
