Meet the A-Team! Get to Know Sami from our Champions ~ Vintage Park Property
Today we had the distinct privilege to sit down with extremely amazing Sami! Sami joined the Amazing Spaces team in August of 2020 as a Leasing and Sales Consultant. She was recently promoted to Property Manager of our Champions ~ Vintage Park location.
A Texas Native
Originally from Edinburg, Texas, Sami grew up on an orange tree ranch. She remembers growing up and going out onto the farm to pick an orange fresh off the tree (could there be anything more refreshing?!). Growing up in a small town meant less to do, but much more time for family. As such, Sami and her family remained close throughout her childhood, even enjoying BBQs every Saturday!
We’re pretty sure Sami’s family is one of the most popular ones in town because they owned the local dance hall. Every weekend Sami recalls going to the dance hall, taking candy from the front room and exploring the event being hosted that day. She remembers growing up going to these fun, festive events. While being away from home is a daily struggle for Sami, she makes sure to keep in touch with her mother and sister daily and grandfather at least weekly.
Moving to Houston has been an amazing opportunity for Sami to grow and discover new experiences. Like many new Houstonians, Sami’s first few months in our city was quite lonely. However, she was able to find a position fairly quickly at a car dealership and started building up a close-knit group of friends.
Joining the A-Team
Life threw a curveball at Sami when COVID hit, and she was unfortunately laid off from her position. She took a few steps back and looked at what she wanted out her life and profession. Cue her introduction to Amazing Spaces. Since joining the A-Team, Sami feels positive, enjoys a strong work-life balance, and overall, at peace. After several months killing it as a Leasing and Sales Consultant, Sami decided to apply for an open manager position at our Champions ~ Vintage Park. Her ability to connect with others and make everyone feel like a friend made her a natural choice for the position.
Sami’s has two favorite parts about working at Amazing Spaces. She loves being able to help others and make a positive impact in someone’s life, especially during one of life’s stressful events like moving (and boy, does she know what that’s like!). Her second favorite part about working at Amazing Spaces is being able to change the perception about self-storage and how renting a storage unit can really be like. Seeing someone’s face the first time they visit an Amazing Spaces property is priceless.
Living Each Day in the Most Amazing Manner
In her spare time, Sami loves to paint and play video games. Sami holds her own as a female gamer, seizing the day while playing her PS4. Eventually, she plans to move to a computer gaming system; we can’t wait to see her setup! An avid animal lover, she also spends time with her two fur-babies, Jack – a lab / German Shepard mix – and Duke – a lab / beagle mix.
Sami believes in living in the moment, but she still keeps an active watch over her goals. She plans to continue to sharpen her skills and take every opportunity to developer herself further. Over the next few years, she’d love to do more traveling, ideally to Colorado or a good beach, like the Bahamas, start investing in local businesses, harness her blogging skills, and get involved with her community. Wow – that’s quite the list, but we know Sami can do anything she sets her mind to!
