Soon after completing her education, she moved to Charlotte, NC in 1998, started a family and now calls Charlotte home. Adriana is the Broker in Charge for V&T Realty LLC, a real estate brokerage, land procurement and entitlement consulting company funded in 2016.
Eventually, Adriana started her career in the real estate world as mortgage loan officer from 2003 to 2016 with her last role as an AVP Loan Structure Manager at Bank of America. Soon afterward, became a real estate agent expanding her experience with buyers, sellers and builders on the other side of the transaction. Adriana is also a consultant to builders finding land to be entitled and developed. She now works with her husband Tim assisting him on land projects in the Southeast.
Tim Samuels has acquired more than 45,000 lots in his real estate and homebuilding career-a distinction that has earned him the nickname, "the Godfather of Land" among the leading national homebuilders across the Southeast. Known as a high-energy guy who always pushes hard to get across the line for a touchdown, Tim is the player who won't let a deal stall at the 50-yard line. He always sees the roadblocks, and quickly maneuvers through the maze of obstacles in what often is a lengthy land-acquisition process.
In 1995, Don Galloway, then the leading homebuilder in Charlotte, recruited Tim to manage his sales team. Within two years, he was promoted to Vice President of Sales and Land Acquisition. Tim took the company from selling 300 homes annually to more than 900 units. In 1999, Don Galloway Homes won "Builder of the Year" (Charlotte), and became Charlotte's top homebuilder based on sales, customer satisfaction and product quality.
In early 2002, Ryan Homes sought and recruited Tim to serve as General Manager of Land Acquisition to expand the company's Charlotte market. Over the next five years, Ryan grew from selling and closing 400 homes to 1,500 homes annually. In fact, the company grew so quickly that it was split into four divisions within the Charlotte region. Tim was responsible for Land Acquisition for all divisions. He established the land department and recruited and trained the land-acquisition team. In 2005, he became Market Land Manager and in 2010 he was promoted to Regional Land Market Manager.
In January 2020, Tim became Principal of V&T Realty with his wife Adriana. In conjunction with this, Tim also partnered with Buller River Development (BRD) in 2020. BRD is a limited partnership land development company with the mindset of continuous growth and land acquisition strategies throughout the Southeast United States.
