Samantha Starr
Helpful. Reliable. Calm.

Sam Starr’s strong dislike of predictability, her love of a challenge, and the joy she experiences in helping others shine ensures she excels as office administrator. The first to admit her early retirement only resulted in severe boredom, the westside local was keen to jump back into her real estate roots when Greg Hocking Footscray needed a helpful hand.

Now, Sam’s key role is assisting directors Bianca Spagnolo and Tracey Dean with administration tasks. However, she is known throughout the office as “Can do Sam”. Willing to turn her hand to anything and everything, she is always on the move. She does what needs to be done quickly and reliably, and remains unfazed even when asked to fix tenants’ letterboxes with WD-40.

Along with Sam’s strong organisation skills and 24/7 empathy comes a genuine satisfaction in helping those around her. She acknowledges that supporting her colleagues and building up their already impressive skills is one of her top daily priorities.

“I want to be able to make what’s already a dynamic team into the next step of dynamic and do whatever I have to do to help the girls be the best they can be,” she says.

Sam’s cool, calm demeanour and willingness to help others with anything, anytime, is based on 32 years of running an office products company with her husband. She also worked with the office’s senior sales consultant and her long-time friend, Terry Cooper, in sales and rentals 17 years ago, and returned again to real estate in 2003.

While she’s fondly regarded as the office mum, Sam doesn’t plan to retire again anytime soon. The West Footscray local of 34 years doesn’t plan to move either, after she and her husband recently completed a six-month adventure to Cooktown in far north Queensland in a 30-foot converted bus.
