Our dream of owning a home in Cabo could not have become a reality without the assistance and guidance of Samantha Ross.
My wife and I were on a short 5-day cruise to Mexico stopping at Cabo. Over the years, we have fantasized about owning property in Cabo but had never really thought it was in reach. The cruise ship stopped for a day in Cabo and we decided to go and explore Cabo with no plans or excursions scheduled. We were just “winging it” and thought we would just let things happen. While Valerie and I were walking off the ship and into the streets of Cabo, we were discussing what we would do for the day. I said to my wife, Valerie, why don’t we find a realtor and see if we can’t get a flavor for the homes in the area. She said that it was a great idea since we always dreamed of having our own place in Cabo! However, she pointed out that we did not know any realtors, so how could we accomplish this on such short notice? I responded, let’s just go into the first realtor office we find and see what happens. That’s exactly what we did. As fate would have it, we met two realtors who were in the office and started a conversation about how much we love Cabo and was wondering if we could see any listings in the area. One of the realtors, Samantha (Sam) Ross, asked us how much time we had and offered to drive us around the different areas and take a look at some condos and homes. We couldn’t believe that Sam would offer to do this knowing we are just “looking” and we would be getting on our cruise ship in a few hours perhaps never to see us again. We were very excited and appreciative of Sam’s offer and off we went. What an exciting day we had! Sam drove around the areas and called some open houses for us to look at. She was professional, fun to talk with, and very informative and knowledgeable. At the end of our tour with Sam, we exchanged our contact information and went back to the ship for departure the next morning. When we got back home, in Huntington Beach, CA, we thanked Sam again for her time and effort that she devoted to us that fateful day. Sam gave us some real estate websites and MLS links for us to review. For several months we were looking at different homes and areas within the Cabo area and started to make a list of homes we liked. Through this time and with Sam’s guidance, we were able to achieve what we believed to be our “short list” of homes that we thought we would be interested in. Valerie and I went through hundreds of condos and single-family residences which took approximately a year achieve. Now the time had come for us to make a trip to Cabo and take a look at our choices. In February 2018, Valerie and I spent 4 days in Cabo. Two of those days were with Sam looking at our short list of residences. Through it all, Sam focused on what we wanted and how we felt about each home and concentrated on us rather than on selling a home. She was engaging in our discussions and offered candid thoughts about the properties for our benefit, not hers. Sam genuinely wanted Valerie and I to find the right home. That is what she cared about and never wavered from this foundation of trust. At the end of the trip we made an offer on a home and it was accepted. In June 2018, we became the proud and grateful owners of a gorgeous home in Cabo San Lucas! We believe that our dream of owning a home in Cabo could not have become a reality without the assistance and guidance of our friend, Samantha Ross. Looking back on that fateful day when Valerie and I stepped into Sam’s office to the day we closed escrow on our home is an amazing story for us to share. I don’t believe it is that amazing for Sam as she lives her work life and personal life in the same way with everyone she meets. In Sam’s mind, it is the only way to be because that is who she is…simply amazing!
