About The Anto Team

Sam Anto

I was born and raised in Kerala, India, and earned a Master's degree in Business administration from University of Madras. I started my career in marketing in 1997 and two years later transitioned into business development for an IT company. Building on my experience in business development I founded a boutique software development firm in Bangalore and successfully ran it until moving to America in 2005.  While in India I became passionate about organizations that provided charitable support to children from a health and education standpoint. I was involved in the founding of several nonprofit organizations and continue to participate as the Chairman of Carmel Maria Charitable Trust and the Kerala Association which supports the wellbeing and education of underprivileged children.

Once in the US, I started my career in IT business development, eventually expanding into IT staffing and Consulting. In 2010, I partnered with a company called Capital Group as an equity trader. I continued to maintain relationships back home in Indian and my involvement with the nonprofit organizations that I founded. As friends and families from India moved to the US, they would reach out to me with housing needs and ultimately needed a Real Estate agent. At the time, I was referring business to other agents in the community that I knew. Then came the realization that I could help families by becoming a Real Estate professional. With my background in business development, equity investing, and marketing, I started becoming immersed in real estate.

​​​​​​​I started leading charitable initiatives in my community, received awards from Berkshire Hathaway and Malayalam Puraskaram for "social and charitable leadership" as Real Estate became a career, I quickly rose to becoming recognized professionally by receiving the rising star award from the Greater Nashville Realtor association in 2017.
