Sam and Jennifer Demel are the owners and proprietors of Fort Worth's Thirty Eight & Vine. Both Texas natives, the Demels, met at TCU and began a whirlwind life together. Following college, Sam launched his professional baseball career, which meant a lot of traveling. The couple spent much of their time on the west coast, having great wine experiences. It was during these that they realized they wanted to create something similar in Fort Worth someday.
Once Sam retired as number thirty-eight for the Arizona Diamondbacks, the couple made their way back to the Lone Star State. In 2015, he joined Jennifer at Burt Ladner Real Estate, marking the beginning of their work partnership. Thirty Eight & Vine followed in 2019.
Whether it be real estate or the wine industry, Sam and Jennifer strive to create and uphold high-level customer experiences in everything they pursue. They have received "Top Realtor" awards and the "40 Under 40" award by Fort Worth Business Press.
In addition to their career pursuits, both enjoy immersing themselves in philanthropy; together, they currently serve on the board of The Blast for Cook Children's Hospital.
When they aren't selling houses, serving the community, or running Thirty Eight & Vine, you can find them spending time with their two adorable kids and crazy Goldendoodles!
