As a director of Petrusma Property, Sam has built a strong reputation for being one of Hobart’s top performing consultants - selling over 80% of his listings in the first three weeks and regularly achieving record prices for his vendors. He is also an experienced auctioneer and is regularly featured in the Mercury for his numerous achievements and awards.

Sam brings a blend of infectious enthusiasm, outstanding people skills, honesty, integrity and a strong commitment to the best possible outcome for his clients. These qualities are regularly commented upon in the many testimonials and letters submitted by clients delighted with the results he has achieved and keen to recommend him to friends and family.

His strong commitment to an outstanding result is balanced by a passion and love for life. When you deal with Sam you know that not only will you be delighted with the result, but the journey will be an absolute pleasure.

Sam is a keen cyclist and has many other hobbies and interests including most sports - especially wakeboarding and snowboarding. He is also a movie buff as well as being a keen musician having played guitar since he was old enough to hold one! However, the pastime that gives Sam the most pleasure is spending time with his family. 

Sam and his wife Natalie have been married for over 13 years and are the proud parents of three gorgeous kids - Zali (10 years), Jaden (8 years), and April (6 years).

When it was time to sell our home in South Hobart, my husband and I knew right away which real estate agent we wanted to work with. When we had been looking for a home to buy a few years before, we had visited a home with Sam Towns. Sam was such a gentle and gracious host as we were considering the property – we knew that was the experience we wanted people to have when they visited our home.

After two open homes with about 50 people at each, Sam had our home under contract within three weeks of listing it for sale. While that might sound like a whirlwind, it was actually a very calm and gradual process. Never once did we feel pressured or rushed, and Sam and his assistant Amy Coppleman were 100% reliable and professional every step of the way.

Obviously, Sam's knowledge and experience in how best to market our home was invaluable, but above all it was his honesty throughout the whole process that we appreciated the most. I would not hesitate to work with Sam again and I cannot recommend him more highly.

When we decided to sell our much loved home, we began the ‘hunt’ for a great sales consultant. After a bit of research, we ended up with a list of three consultants, which included Sam Towns. We were impressed with Sam’s exposure in the market place and when we received a flyer in our mailbox from him, we decided not to tempt fate, and gave him a call.

From the moment we met him, we knew he was the person to sell our property. Throughout our (thankfully) short time dealing with him, we’ve been thoroughly impressed with his professionalism, enthusiasm, friendliness, patience, integrity and his overall passion for, and knowledge of, sales.

Sam worked with us to develop a comprehensive marketing plan which included investing in the newly launched ‘Premiere Property’ on And since we had such great photos to work with (thank you), we decided to give it a go. We couldn’t have been happier with the results. We feel the extra exposure was well worth the extra cost involved.

Every story needs a happy ending and that’s just what we have. Sam is a man of his words and did what he set out to do. He sold our property in just five days and with a fantastic result.. and he truly 'sold it'!. We don’t think we could have gotten the same result without Sam. We’ve bought and sold real estate in several countries and have dealt with many realtors. Sam is definitely the stand out. He’s simply the best realtor we’ve ever dealt with!

We can’t thank you enough Sam, and the team at Petrusma Property! You’ve all been great to work with. You can be assured we’ll be letting people know who they should be using to sell their property.

Sam was excellent in every respect. His enthusiasm was fantastic and he is obviously very passionate about his work - which made him great to deal with!

Our property we sold within two days on the market, and for a price well above our dream price... We couldn’t have asked for anything more.

We would highly recommend Sam to anyone for his enthusiasm, professionalism and knowledge.

Thanks Sam, you’re a gem!

Brent & Christine Murphy


Many friends and family had warned us that selling our home would be one of the most stressful and difficult life experiences... This was not our experience at all!

In fact, we believe Sam’s approach to the preparation and sale period meant we felt very well educated about the processes involved and therefore we were very comfortable.

Sam is a trustworthy, open communicator who happily answered all of our questions, was respectful of our needs and genuinely seems very passionate about his job.

Thank you Sam!

John & Anna Holliday


“From the start we were impressed by Sam’s personal approach. Over the previous few years we have appreciated his willingness to advise and chat to us as ‘sticky beakers’ at various open homes. His great local knowledge and recent sales in our area were impressive, as is his honesty and integrity in all of our discussions. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Sam to anyone selling a house. We wish him a very successful, fulfilling future.” Steve & Anita Manners

“Sam was a great agent, he marketed our property well and - we were very happy with his abilities and personal qualities. We sold for a good price in a difficult market. We would definitely choose Sam to sell for us again in the future.” Gorman Family 

“Sam was friendly and easygoing while solidly professional. The whole process unfolded in a smooth manner. This I think is a real credit to Sam and his abilities. Thanks Sam and all good wishes.” Christl Berg & Denise Rathbone

“Sam was a fantastic property consultant to liaise with. Excellent marketing, photos and youtube clip, especially online – this is how we found the property. Excellent customer service, especially at the open home and we would sell through Sam in the future because of the experience we have had purchasing through Petrusma.” Zara Pears

“Sam was enthusiastic, professional and an all together great consultant to have. We would not hesitate to use his house selling services again. In fact, we have already recommended Sam to a couple of friends. Sam made the whole process a relatively painless one and we are thrilled with the results he got for us.” Michelle & Giles Chandler

“Sam was a breath of fresh air. He was motivated and honest in all dealings and displayed a high knowledge of the industry and trends in it. He was extremely well organised and kept all appointments. Had it not been for Sam, we would still be thinking about listing our property. I can’t recommend Sam highly enough.” Jonathan Hall

 “Sam has been great. We both really appreciated his friendly, helpful manner. It is refreshing to deal with a consultant that is in no way pushy and doesn’t put pressure on us to make rushed decisions. Sam conducts himself in a way that all consultants should. We will not hesitate to recommend Sam to our friends and will be in contact when we next buy and sell property.” Emma Hooper

“Sam helped me feel safe in making a major life decision. The process flowed, communication was direct and the kindness factor was genuine. Sam exceeded my selling goal, took the time to reassure me when I questioned the process and directed a real and honest experience. I’m not sure if you’re meant to but I enjoyed selling my home, it helped that I like Sam too.” Cindy Davidson

“I found Sam to be incredibly helpful. He was genuinely interested in finding a property for me.  He did some research based on what I was looking for and we then drove around the streets of Sandy Bay together looking at houses we’d identified as possibilities. He contacted the owners of some of the properties I was interested in and I understand that he has subsequently sold one of these houses. In the meantime, another Petrusma agent listed a great house in Sandy Bay. Sam showed me the house on the day of listing and I bought it that night!  Sam is very personable and proactive and I couldn’t recommend him more highly to a potential purchaser or vendor.” Georgina Downey

“We felt very comfortable working with Sam right from the start.  He was affable and friendly towards us, enthusiastic about our property and made us feel that our needs as vendors were paramount.  Although our primary relationship was with Sam, we felt that the experience of all the agents at Petrusma was always at our disposal. Sam was very good at keeping us informed during each stage of the process and made sure to answer any questions we had as they came up.  He kept in daily contact with us and returned our phone calls quickly.  In the end, it is the quick (and relatively painless) sale of our property for a price that was well in excess of our expectations which compels us to strongly recommend Sam.”  Paul & Jessica Burton 

“My husband and I had a property to sell in Hobart and being from Launceston we had no idea where to start in finding a good agent. A friend recommended your agency and Sam Towns. What we found was not a good agent but a great one. We are extremely appreciative of the efforts of Sam in selling our property. He demonstrated a genuine commitment and always had a positive attitude. The presentation photo’s and marketing strategies were excellent. Sam updated us on a regular basis and was always patient with my myriad of questions. In securing two offers on my property Sam went above and beyond the call of duty in keeping us up to date with everything. His honesty and enthusiasm are rare qualities and we are very grateful for his involvement. He is a credit to your agency. I certainly have done and will in the future recommend your agency and Sam Towns to anyone needing your services.” Ingo and Tanya Schneider

“I’m writing to express my appreciation to you for your valuable assistance with the recent sale of my property in Sandy Bay. As a result of your initiative and direct approach to me, the whole process of the sale was uncomplicated and a great deal less expensive than normally expected. I have been impressed by your open and respectful approach during the sale proceedings and your clear intent to act in my best interest as the vendor. Thank you for following up on the sales details on similar properties, which certainly reinforces my satisfaction with the result you obtained for me. I wish you continuing success and enjoyment in the Real Estate industry and would be pleased to use your services and recommend you to others when the opportunity arises in the future.” Peter Welch

“Sam’s strengths are his accessibility, his enthusiasm and his direction. Sam is probably the best agent we have dealt with over many years of travelling, moving and selling homes in Tasmania and the mainland.” Michael & Theresa Reynolds 

“We loved Sam, and he is the rteason we chose Petrusma Property. Honest, intelligent, integrity, firm and energetic. A great listener - many thanks!” Jenny Grist
