Our CEO & Founder

Joel grew up in Brazil.

After finishing his rabbinical degrees, he moved to the UK in 2007.

Joel Stern is the Founder of THE SAM GROUP.

In 2013, Joel started working in the property industry, with an initial focus on property management and helping investors to find small projects.

After a couple of years helping various clients with management and refurbishment, Joel saw a need for a planning consultancy firm with in-house architects, that could get the job done with a high approval rate whilst keeping the client informed along the way.

Sam planning specialises in getting property plans approved with success in 9/10 applications and achieves this whilst keeping the client up to date every step of the way and providing full transparency.

Today, Joel oversees a team of 25. Architects, drafter, engineers, planning consultants, actively committed to maximise the value of your property in some way or another.

Joel strives to get the job done and you can often hear him say “Do it once, do it right”, for him that goes hand it hand with obsessing over his customer’s needs.
