About Sam & SPREI
Real Estate Investor
Sam is a preacher’s kid (PK), ‘born and raised on the pew’, and a church musician. Publically, he did well in school, graduating from the University of Maryland, College Park with a B.A. degree in Communication, and a graduate degree in Special Education from the Johns Hopkins School of Education. Privately, Sam struggled to reconcile faith and finance, believing the lie of the enemy for a long time that he had to choose one or the other.
He did well in the workplace with 15 years of Customer Service experience honed through serving on and leading multiple technical support teams, and culminating into serving as Project Manager for a multi-million dollar government services contract with the National Institutes of Health.
Still, Samuel realized that his education wasn’t complete because he was missing financial education. He felt deep down that there was more to life than trading time for money. Understanding that 90% of the world’s wealthy invest in real estate, he plunged into the books and teachings of Robert Kiyosaki. Yet he still came up empty not because of the information, but because he still did not know how or what it meant to partner with God in business, compartmentalizing and regulating God to what Sam felt were the more spiritual aspects of his life.
God allowed Sam to meet and work with a Christian entrepreneur and business coach who helped him to see the real truth of God’s word on money, stewardship, and glorifying God in business. Sam finally realized that God was interested in every area of our life! He realigned and readjusted his thinking, and is now on fire to help other Christians receive the abundant life that Christ wants to give us in all areas, including finance! God promised that if we submit to Him in all our ways, He will make Straight our Paths! (Proverbs 3:6)
Now, Samuel’s passion and mission is to help Christians become financially free through the business of real estate investing. Sam believes getting money out of the way will free Christians to be God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. (Ephesians 2:10)
