amples Properties is proven in the commercial property history of Huntsville/Madison County with roots dating to the inception of Cummings Research Park in the 1960’s. Carol Ann Samples inherited her father’s drive for Huntsville’s commercial growth, continuing the growth of Cummings Research Park and retaining the integrity of her father, Milton Cummings’, vision. Ty Samples’ background focused largely on retail properties related to restaurant and hotel site selection throughout the Southeast. In the early 1980’s his focus shifted to the Huntsville market. Together with Carol Ann, they established the new direction for the company. Building upon the framework and legacy of Cummings Research Park and Ty’s experience in the commercial market, Ty and Carol Ann carried forth a company which offered a full- range of commercial real estate services based on integrity and experience.

Over the years Michael has developed a comprehensive understanding of the commercial real estate market.
