My husband and I have worked with Scott for many years. He has always gone above and beyond in all our dealings with him. He helped us get a phenomenal price on the current house we're in now. I've worked with many realtors that have tried to push houses we aren't interested on us, but Scott takes the time to listen and ultimately doesn't pressure us into something we wouldn't want. He's very knowledgeable about the buying/selling process and we've learned a lot throughout the years. Just recently, we learned that by increasing the size of bedrooms in the house, we also need to increase the septic system capacity. I never would have known that if he hadn't explained it to us. I've recommended him to multiple friends of mine, and I would recommend him to anyone looking for a great Realtor.
