PASSION!!!  First & Foremost!

This is likely one of the most emotional professions that one could have the honor of pursuing. The business of helping people with Buying & Selling their "memories" is a very complex & stressful process that takes creativity, tenacity & compassion. It's a richly rewarding experience for me, to be a part of my client's life & to help them transition from one home to another.

Whether you are buying or selling, you can expect the following from me;

  • An honest, upfront and direct approach to making the most of our relationship
  • Compassion and understanding when dealing with your personal and family affairs
  • Creativity in marketing and negotiating
  • Tenacity to ensure you obtain the maximum value for your investment
  • Confidentiality in everything we discuss
  • Experience & Expertise!!!

For those prospective clients that either own an historic structure, or are seeking to purchase an historic home, you know that you are a rare person! Those that seek to preserve their homes for future generations & respect the design aesthetics of the past are a relatively small minority in the overall scheme of the real estate world. It is a small "niche" market that requires special skills when it comes to marketing a property. More than simply taking photographs & writing about the "structure", I take great pride in delving into the history of my listings. Houses, just like people, have "memories" that transcend from generation to generation. Much of that history gets lost when a property changes hands. When there are 100 to 200 years of history, re-discovering the past is part of the challenge I love to pursue when researching the families & architects of my listings.

It takes time, creativity & a bit of luck to re-create the lineage of a building. However, that's all part of the fun of the "hunt", to build a storyline that can be marketed and passed on to the future Owners of my listings.

“Scott is an amazing realtor. He was the listing realtor when we bought our house and we were so impressed that we hired him to sell our house when the time came. He understands - and shares - the emotional attachment we have to our home and was able to sensitively recommend "improvements" we needed to make to show our home at its best.

He designed and implemented a marketing plan that worked quickly. Scott sold our unusual historic home in a matter of weeks sparing us a summer of showings. Scott understands the mechanics of buying and selling a home and his negotiation skills are outstanding. He knew when to tell us to back down and when to assert our priorities. I couldn't be happier with the contract he negotiated for us. Scott was also there for us - emotionally and physically - during a difficult move (we were downsizing from a large home to an RV!) I can't promise this to all his clients but he literally showed up in shorts and a t-shirt to pack boxes when we were desperate on settlement day. He was also incredibly responsive under more normal circumstances. He was always available quickly via phone, text and email. Whether you are buying or selling, Scott is an expert who will help you with the practical aspects of your transition. More than that, he will help you with the stressful emotional aspects that are part of any real estate transaction.

We can't thank him enough for all of his help and support.”
