People of CPP: Meet Sam Hahn

In our new blog series, we’re taking you behind the scenes to meet the amazing agents and staff of Coastal Premier Properties. We hope you’ll follow along as you get to know more about the faces of our great company!

This week we’re talking with Sam Hahn, Head of Property Management at Coastal Premier Properties. In the few short years he’s been operating our property management division, Sam has built a base of devoted clients who love the superior property management service he and his team provide.


Coastal Premier Properties: Why did you decide to purse a career in property management?

Sam Hahn: I am a firm believer in treating others how you would like to be treated. Having dealt with not so nice property managers made me want to offer a professional and pleasant experience.

CPP: What are the biggest challenges and satisfactions with your work?

SH: Biggest challenge is that everyone is different therefore they have different expectations. Becoming an expert communicator to different personalities is a challenge, but always satisfying when you succeed. The greatest satisfaction is meeting a lot of new people and positively impacting the lives of either clients or tenants.

CPP: What personal characteristics have helped you succeed in this field?

SH: I think my positive and open-minded personality has helped me succeed in this field. People feel comfortable around me and put their trust in me, both in personal or professional matters.

CPP: What are the benefits of using a property manager?

SH: Daily tasks add up to consume a lot of time. Hiring a property manager gives you back the time that you need to spend doing more of what you love. Having a property manager is convenient for the fact that you do not have to deal with anything such as ads, tenant screening, or collecting payments.

CPP: Do you have any great home maintenance or upkeep tips you’ve learned from working in this field?

SH: Preventative maintenance is key. Spend a little now, so you do not have to spend a lot later.

CPP: Is property management a seasonal industry like real estate sales? Are there busier and slower times of the year?

SH: Property management is very similar to the real estate sales market. Generally speaking, like real estate the 4th quarter slows down.

CPP: What do you enjoy doing outside of work?

SH: Outside of work, I’m interested in spending time with family, golfing and always looking for opportunities to obtain new knowledge.
