As the owner and operator of Sam Robertson Real Estate Co., Sam has enjoyed a long and diverse career spanning the Continental U.S. in both real estate and as a former collegiate football coach.

Prior to his real estate career, Sam coached college football for 20+ years at the University of Tennessee, Kansas State University, University of Oregon, Texas Tech University, and as the head football coach at the University of Southwestern Louisiana, now known as the University of Louisiana at Lafayette.
