Sam Powell, raised outside Dover, Delaware earned her bachelors degree in photojournalism from the Rochester Institute of Technology in Rochester, NY. She worked for the college in the area of campus media support including, but not limited to, traditional/digital photography and digital image manipulation/restoration. After moving to Chicago a few years later Sam became part of the dot com bust and decided it was time to rethink her options. With a strong desire to learn about real estate and potential real estate investing the decision to become an agent seemed sound. Because Sam is so dedicated to doing what's right for her clients and managing their needs the way she would want hers managed it was very clear from the start that the fit was a good one. With so many opportunities to learn and grow while working with great clients she continues to thrive in her position. Sam and Jen, her life partner since 1992, live in Chicago's West Loop. They have a strong sense of commitment to family and friends. They are proud parents of a chocolate lab named Afis, two cats and a "Sunflower Yellow" VW Beetle.
