My Client Reviews
Having Scott as our realtor gave us a sense of assurance and comfort that we feel we would not have gotten from another realtor. Since we were selling my moms house and not living in the state, Scott kept us constantly informed and showed so much care and concern for my mom while potential buyers were coming to the house with her still living there. Scotts knowledge of the real estate market was spot on. He was accurate in the pricing of the house and we were comfortable with his suggestions and recommendations to us. Even though we made the final decision on some items, Scotts guidance and suggestions helped in us making our decisions. Which turned out to be the right choice at all times. Scott was responsive to our text and phone calls. We had great dialogue with emails and never once did we feel we were left out in the open. My husband and I were equally impressed with Scotts attention to detail. He was on point when it came to depersonalizing the house and make excellent recommendations in what needed to be removed from the walls and minimize some of the furniture in the rooms to make the house more open and presentable. We strongly recommend Scott to be your realtor. We will definitely use Scott the next time we either purchase or sell our next home. Not only was he professional with us, but he made us feel like a friend and eased all our concerns and apprehensions with the selling of my moms home. Thank you again Scott, for everything you have done for us and making a difficult decision for us in selling the home that my parents lived in for over 20 years as easy and painless as possible.
Coming from another state, we just didn't know who to contact to help us find our home. Our daughter is in real estate (in another state) so we asked her to sort thru her various networks and find us a realtor who wouldn't mind assisting a picky and particular buyer. We're very happy she found Scott to assist us in our search. Scott is an experienced professional that knows the market, listens to his clients needs, and is very attentive to the entire process from beginning to end. We also enjoyed his willingness to share his thoughts on the different properties we considered. We were very happy with the service and advice received from Scott.
The whole process went very smoothly. Scott is very attentive to details and the most important aspect to me was his patience in working with my wife and I.
I 've had 3 real estate transactions with Scott and each one has been handled with the utmost attention to detail and professionalism. He handles every step of the process from the initial search to inspections and checks to make sure the repairs are completed before the close. He has great taste and you can trust his judgement and negotiating skills. His follow through is outstanding and would recommend him before anyone else in the Valley.
Previous review from Sally V.
It is always a pleasure, dealing with Scott. This is the second listing I've had with him and each time, he manages to "out do himself". His organizational and marketing skills are "top-shelf" and his attention to detail is exceptional, as well. I could not recommend a more professional agent who has a very "honed knowledge" of the area and its respective marketplace. He's always there when you need him and I would highly recommend him to anyone. My experience has been a smooth sale and closing, each time. He's not a diamond in the rough.....he's a jewel of a realtor.
Scott, Thank you for all of the time and effort you spent helping Katie and I find our forever home. You made this process as stress free as possible and we couldn't be happier to call you our realtor and friend!
My first thought when reviewing Scott's Better Home and Garden's realtor site was, "He may only look for high end homes" and that wasn't certainly what we were looking for. So I posed that question to Scott (with our budget in mind) because I was impressed with the reviews on his page and he said, "Absolutely, I will help you find your new home". My wife and I at the time were moving back to Arizona from Minnesota so there was a lot of space between us and of course time was of essence to get into a home. Scott immediately got to work and lined up the necessary people we would coordinate our loan with and put together an extensive list of things that would help get things done sooner once we landed on our feet in Arizona. My wife and I flew down to Phoenix for a family get together but this was a temporary stay for we still has loose ends in Minnesota so we only had a week stay here before we went back. We reached out to Scott telling him we were available for some showings and he lined up houses right away. As we looked at the houses Scott's knowledge of the area and the property were exercised and he took the time to ask us with each house what we liked and didn't like. We had a limited time but Scott narrowed our search based on each house we looked at and on the 5th house BINGO! We were so happy with the find and it is everything we were looking for. What really stuck out going through the process was the seller had moved back to Europe so Scott, showing his knowledge and foresight, told us the he had spoken to the seller's realtor to set up a power of attorney to make the paper signing process to changes, requests, and eventually the sale more expedient. We were very impressed with Scott's attention to detail and we are very proud to say we were handed the key's in 30 day's from the time we said "GO" to the finish line. Scott should also be acknowledged for having a great team from the lender side to title company. These people made our experience feel as though we were priority number one and were always available if we had questions. Thank you Scott!
We have been so fortunate to have Scott not only negotiate a great deal but to follow through with a purchase that was a bit tricky . His professionalism and local knowledge helped to make our decision to buy an easy one. We sold two homes and purchased two homes this summer and Scott was the the most detailed agent who anticipated all our needs in advance (even the ones we didn't know we had) and made our transaction painless. Without a doubt we would recommend Scott as your go to agent for a seamless transaction .
Dear Scott and Patrick, You both earn 5 Celestial stars in my Book of Realtors! Introduced by my son (whom had met and grown to know you at his job at a local restaurant years hence) assured me you were good guys. He was right! Taking the leap to sell, you both gave of yourselves thru time, sound advice, and energy helping that process. Next, you provided a superb photographer, employed your Web talents and Social Media connections to promote. Helllooo! Signage, showings, Open House,etc. produced an offer (from an out of state buyer). You walked me thru ALL the requirements and documents and contingencies easily to procure a suitable counter offer and BAM! Counter accepted and SOLD! Thank you. 4 days later, (with the task of finding a home to suit my soul), YOU found it. You helped me thru All the BiNSARS on BOTH properties. You made it possible to utilize the same Title Company to facilitate the sale and purchase in one day. (!) One month and 7 days from MLS listing you sold my house, one month and 11 days you found the perfect new home for me. Anyone still reading should KNOW how appreciative and thankful I am for Scott and Patrick. They WILL be your greatest asset in selling or finding what is right for you. They will also become your friends. Cant thank you enough, Marg PS. Make that 1000 Stars!
Scott was the picture of professionalism very quick to respond. Creative with pictures and staging. Extremely honest and trustworthy. Selling a home is never an easy process to,go through and he made it essentially stress free. We would absolutely use him again and highly recommend him. Thanks so much for keeping it easy.
Scott and Patrick were awesome realtors. They went above and beyond in terms of marketing our home and finding the right way to do it. From a TV clip to a brochure to advertisements mailed out to potential clients, we felt very well covered. At showings, they were very professional and had all the right information for the buyers. They really knew our home and were able to provide potential buyers with just the right info. Overall, we had an excellent experience!
Client for Life! I have had the pleasure of having Scott as my realtor for 5 years. Scott's ability to see my vision and turn into reality has been remarkable. His unique knowledge and understanding of the Arizona market place made my purchases stress free and enjoyable. The trust we have built over the years is priceless. I have referred, and will continue to refer family and friends to Scott! Thank you Scott for everything you do.
As someone with very limited knowledge of the 'greater Scottsdale area', it was a pleasure to work with someone like Scott. Scott was invaluable at assisting me with not only the local real estate market, but also helped me through the myriad of issues surrounding inspections, the mortgage process and closing. The real estate market is a vastly different place today than it was in 2005 when I last purchased a home. Scott's attention to detail and responsiveness kept my deal on track and went a long way to alleviate the many concerns that I had throughout the process. I'm sure I asked more than my fair share of 'stupid questions' during the process, but Scott always gave me expert, professional advice that calmed my fears and helped to make this as smooth a process as it could possibly be. I would certainly recommend Scott and his firm to others looking for a home in the greater Scottsdale area.
