Sam Funnell

Hi I’m Sam Funnell, Property Marketing Expert and Branch Partner at Fine & Country.

I have been working in estate agency since 1996, specialising in the upper quartile of the market in towns and villages around Warwickshire, Northamptonshire and Leicestershire and joined Fine & Country in 2011, where I was invited to lead a team of agents and guide them in a new level of marketing skills and service. We quickly became the market leader in the sales of homes in excess of £500,000 and to date are the number one agent in the midlands for property sales in this price range. We have been very successful in the use of print media and high end lifestyle publications, before launching Fine & Country onto all the key social media channels, one of the first agents in region to utilise this important marketing resource for my clients homes. As a result some of our innovative property videos are being seen by as many as 30,000 potential buyers, that have been targeted according to a buyer demographic, increasing the viewing levels and ensuring the best price for my sellers.

I live locally in Rugby, with my partner Claire who also works as a Partner at Fine & Country and our young family. Being a local property expert helps hugely in providing accurate information on the towns and villages that I cover. We are all self-employed partner agents at Fine & Country and as a result you will receive some of the finest service and expertise that the industry has to offer and I will be with you from the very beginning of your journey, where we can design a bespoke marketing plan for your home, to the very end when we give the keys to your new buyer. When appointed by you I will attend all the viewings, allowing me to demonstrate some expert knowledge of your home and ensuring we negotiate a price in excess our price expectations and choose a buyer that will meet your desired timescales.

Coupled with this local exposure, we have over 300 offices across the UK and in key destinations across the globe to give your home not only national exposure but international too. Amongst our many locations is our London show room in Park Lane which will provide a unique marketing platform for your home to reach the affluent buyers from the south east that are making moves.

Don't take my word for it though here are some of my 5 * reviews online

We sold our property through Sam Funnell at Fine & Country, Rugby. Sam was brilliant from start to finish, he was a step above every other agent we have ever dealt with on either the buying or selling sides.
The whole experience was a breath of fresh air and it has restored our faith and opinion towards estate agents.
Sam’s communication throughout our sale was excellent, he was extremely pro-active and always one step ahead. He was the driving force behind the sale, keeping everyone informed and everything on track.
We cannot recommend Sam at Fine & Country highly enough, whether you are buying or selling you simply MUST use Sam Funnell and his team!
All round five star service!

The best Estate Agents in town!
I honestly can’t fault the service and professionalism provided by Sam Funnell and Claire Heritage of Fine and Country Rugby. From the initial first meeting and market appraisal, I felt that Sam was approachable and incredibly knowledgeable on the local property market. The marketing materials and videos were of exceptional quality and showed our home off to its full potential. All viewings were accompanied and full feedback and follow up provided in a timely manner. Sam and Claire’s advice has been spot on throughout the selling process, and when we ran into difficulties with the sale Sam was always available to reassure and crucially chase up the other parties, when I often was not able to get hold of my solicitor, or anyone else involved.
It was an emotional experience to sell our family home, but Sam and Claire have been very supportive and understanding, and eased the process massively. On a personal level, I felt that Sam and Claire, really cared about us and our family situation. They are friendly and I’m very grateful to have met them.
To those who may think that Estate Agency is expensive, I consider the service I have received to be extremely good value for money. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Sam and Claire wholeheartedly.

Professional, personable, reliable, trustworthy and an expert in the high end property market.

Sam was excellent. Sold my house in a matter of weeks for a good price, it had been on the market years with other agents. Very professional service and I couldn’t be more pleased.
