The Samuel Team

The Samuel Team sells homes in Central

As John R. Wood Properties agents, the Samuel Team, comprised of Karyn and Rowan Samuel, excels at providing exceptional service, years of real estate experience and extensive knowledge of the Naples real estate market. With over $100 million in sales to date, why hire just one Realtor when you can have the benefit of both of us on your team?

We have been recognized at John R. Wood as Emerald "Top Producers" and recently by Gulfshore Life Magazine as prestigious 5 Star Real Estate Agents (only the top 7% of Realtors in Collier County).  We also serve on the Board of Directors at John R. Wood Properties and are consistently recognized as one of the top grossing real estate agents at the company.

One of the benefits of working with us is our diverse experience.  Karyn has a J.D. and practiced law for several years with Drinker, Biddle & Reath, a large Philadelphia law firm and also worked as a recruiter for law firms and “in-house” law positions at Major, Hagen & Africa, a top law profession recruiting firm.  Rowan spent over 20 years in sales and marketing running a direct marketing and internet advertising agency with Fortune 50 clients focusing on the automotive, banking, cable, health care, political, sports franchising and restaurant industries.  Rowan has also been involved in the local not-for-profit world here in Naples and is one of the co-founders of the Naples International Film Festival and serves on multiple Boards in town.

We live in Park Shore with our two sons, Jacob and Alex, and a retriever mix, Rudy.

We focus on luxury residential real estate, working in the west of 41 areas including the neighborhoods of Aqualane Shores, Coquina Sands, Gulfshore Boulevard, Moorings, Pelican Bay, Park Shore, Port Royal, Old Naples and Royal Harbor, as well as in luxury gated and golf communities throughout Naples.

We bring a superior level of customer service, sales & marketing, cutting edge-technology, local knowledge and most importantly, enthusiasm! 

We love Naples and enjoy introducing our slice of paradise to our clients.
