POPULAR sports presenter Sam Squiers and her husband, Ben, have put their Brisbane home on the market as they prepare to return to New South Wales.
After a five-year bid to try and have her firefighter husband transferred without losing rank failed, the star has made the “agonising” decision to leave Channel 9 Queensland.
This Bardon home is for sale.
Ben, a senior firefighter with Fire and Rescue NSW, had been commuting between Brisbane and Sydney for work since the pair made the move north for Sam’s career.
But the situation became “impossible” after the dramatic premature birth of their now one-year-old daughter Imogen, who spent 44 days in hospital care.

It means they have decided to sell their two-bedroom house in the sought-after suburb of Bardon, bordering Jubilee Park.
The post-war home on an elevated block has a front deck to enjoy the views over the park.
The deck on the Bardon house Sam Squiers has listed for sale.
It has been renovated to a high-standard, featuring polished hardwood floors, a kitchen with stone benchtops and quality appliances, and the bedrooms have built-in wardrobes.
There is a courtyard at the back and a laundry room with separate toilet.
The living room in the Bardon house Sam Squiers is selling.
The house is on an average 407 sqm block and there is scope to extend/raise subject to council approval.
Records show the couple paid $704,000 for the property at auction in 2015.
It has been listed without a price guide through Jacob Pirrone of Pirrone Property.
