Sam Chapin, Broker - Residential

Sam Chapin

Sam Chapin has practiced law for 21 years. He earned his bachelor's degree from the University of Washington in 1989 and his law degree from the University of North Carolina in 1993. Sam’s legal career focused entirely on litigation: first as a civil trial attorney for a Seattle law firm, then as a King County criminal prosecutor. More recently, Sam has been a law professor at the UW School of Law and served as a pro tem judge in King County. Sam’s law practice regularly involved complex negotiations aimed at resolving high-risk disputes.

Beyond the law, Sam has a passion for real estate. Since 1994 Sam has bought, sold, and managed mixed-use commercial and residential buildings in Seattle (Queen Anne, Capitol Hill, and West Seattle) and Mercer Island. Sam currently owns several buildings and has spear-headed the remodeling, redevelopment, and rebranding of these properties to great success. His experience as a commercial owner and manager is a key benefit to his services as a broker.

Sam and his wife, Loretta, have two girls, a boy, and a Labradoodle named Dory.
