In Conversation With: The humble and hungry Illan Samuel | Samuel Property
Posted by Development Ready on Apr 06, 2020

Illan Samuel is Managing Director at Samuel Property, a family-owned Melbourne-based property development firm, which specialises in high-end multi-residential projects. Illan founded the firm around 10 years ago and in that time has emerged as one of Melbourne’s most progressive new contributors within the contemporary residential landscape. 

Graduating with a Business Property degree from RMIT, Illan went to take roles as a valuer at M3 Property and Fitzroys Real Estate. A burning interest to transition into property development, as his father had done before him, led Illan to establish his own firm and seek undervalued development sites in areas that he felt were being overlooked. Through the last decade, Illan has guided the modestly sized Samuel Property team through Melbourne’s most esteemed residential neighbourhoods with an attitude that remains humble and hungry.

Development Ready’s Rob Langton recently sat down with Illan to discuss his accumulation of experience and the strategies that were put in place to elevate Samuel Property into the stratosphere of Melbourne’s residential development elite. Watch the full interview now.
