Sam Bird-Robinson


Get to Know Me

I have been selling real estate full-time in Santa Cruz since 2011 and have been a licensed Broker since 2015. I am a consistent top producer specializing in selling single-family homes and multi-family investment properties with an emphasis on listings. I come from a long line of entrepreneurs and creatives, giving me a keen business sense and an eye for aesthetic detail. I am committed to providing my clients with a high level of 'good old’ customer service in an industry that continues to be diluted by technology and automation. I moved to Santa Cruz in 2004 to attend UCSC where I graduated with a degree in Environmental Studies with a Minor in Earth Sciences. I am committed to ongoing negotiation training and coaching to ensure my clients are well represented and belong to an elite networking group of top producing agents in the greater Bay Area. I am very passionate about high-quality marketing and make it a priority to always be at the forefront of the latest marketing technology & approaches. I own a home on the Westside where I live with his wife Lindsey and son Benji. We love surfing together, riding bikes around the neighborhood, and eating at our favorite Greek restaurant, Vasili’s, and local Taqueria, De La Hacienda. 


Sam helped us to realize the dream. His knowledge is only matched by his caring. We couldn’t be more pleased. Highest recommendation.
