Originally from Florida, Scott started his real estate career in Orlando—one of the fastest moving markets in the country. He entered the market at an exciting time, when the housing market was on the upswing in 2003. During this time he was continually ranked one of the top real estate agents for his brokerage, as well as ranking in the top ten percent in Orlando. Having navigated shifting markets, he learned to be adaptive and responsive, and honed his negotiation skills through training as a Real Estate Negotiation Expert (RENE), making him a skilled advocate for his clients.
Scott specializes in residential real estate, expertly navigating his clients through the process to help them find their ideal investment or dream home. His educational background in psychology and business enables him to look at each real estate transaction from a pragmatic point of view. Scott understands that buying or selling a home can be an emotional time in his client’s lives, always striving to provide his clients with a stress-free transaction. Scott prides himself on his desire to continually expand his expertise of the industry in order to offer his clients up-to-date market knowledge. His fresh and innovative approach to real estate focuses on strategic marketing that produces results, and a total commitment to service that simply can’t be beaten.
Scott lives in Lakeview East with his husband where he takes advantage of the park, bike riding and walking his dogs along the lakeshore. When not in town, he spends time with family in a small suburban farm town, gardening, and landscaping.
Scott is wonderful to work with. He has a great attention to details, is kind, helpful, respectful and very knowledgeable about real estate. He set us up with a calendar of things I needed to do and would even email or text us a reminder as deadlines approached. I had such peace of mind entering this transaction knowing he was in charge.
Scott is an outstanding realtor who stands above the others in his field. His genuine caring and concern for his clients was evident throughout the time he supported my search for a home. He was not only my realtor but became a friend. Without a doubt, I strongly recommend Scott to those who want AND expect the BEST!
Scott was a tremendous help to us in buying a house. Having never encountered such an extreme seller's market, we were somewhat overwhelmed. Scott helped us develop a strategy and navigate through the buying process. He was knowledgeable, attentive, helpful, and on top of things every step of the way. We've had some agents in the past who made us feel like we were a burden, that we were wasting their time. Not Scott! He answered all our questions, took the time to thoroughly show us what was available, and really helped us find what we were looking for. He could not have been more valuable, and we would not hesitate to work with him again. His service was truly the best.
Scott did a great job helping me purchase a condo recently. His communication throughout the entire process and helping me negotiate a great price made for a great experience. He was very knowledgeable, punctual, followed up on everything. I have already referred him to a friend who is also very satisfied.
Working with Scott was a pleasure. He provided us with information and insights that other agents could not offer. The seller wanted a quick closing, and Scott’s assistance was instrumental in our successful settlement. He’s very friendly and I will wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone looking for an experienced real estate agent.
Scott was wonderful to work with - sharing his expertise of the market and providing us with good, solid advice. He went above and beyond to ensure a smooth transaction for us as the buyers. Scott is always responsive, answering questions and concerns promptly. I would recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell in the downtown market!
Scott was absolutely amazing to work with. He was kind, understanding and honest when dealing with expectations. I feel that he is a key reason why our house sold as quickly as it did. He was extremely accessible through the entire house selling process.
We had an absolutely wonderful experience working with Scott as our buying agent! We wanted to find a realtor who understood the downtown neighborhoods and understood our desire to live in this area and what goes along with it. Scott was extremely knowledgeable about the neighborhoods, home values, and what to expect in our price range in this area. He was prompt and available throughout the day and made sure all our paperwork was submitted quickly and correctly in order to ensure a smooth purchase process. If and when we consider changing homes, we will not look to anyone else.
Scott came recommended to me from a work colleague who has used him numerous times. I explained to him I travel often with my job and would need to do most of the selling and buying remotely. I felt comfortable and confident with him handling things in my absence. He did so expertly and efficiently, saved me time and worry – the total business professional.
Scott, we want to thank you for helping us buy our dream house. You guided us through what others warned would be a stressful process -- and it wasn’t with you by our side. You were always available to answer our questions, day or night and we appreciate that. Your calmness and patience made us happy home owners.
I first met Scott through friends at a social engagement. I struck up a conversation with him and was impressed with his knowledge and commitment to his clients. Months later, I reached out to him to help me with selling my home and finding a new one. He really lived up to my expectations from our first encounter. He is professional as well as personable.
My experience working with Scott to sell my condo was a great experience. He advised me how to properly stage my home, what repairs I should do prior to putting it on the market (which ended up saving me money) and explained to me the buyer’s mindset so that I would be prepared when offers occurred. My condo sold so quickly with his help. I will be referring all my friends to him.
If you are looking for a Realtor that is professional, ethical and cares about his clients…then please do yourself a favor and work with Scott. I have purchased many homes in the past and never dealt with a broker that went above and beyond to make sure the transaction went so smoothly. Thank you.
Scott was fantastic, and I recommend everyone purchasing a condo to seek his services. Being new to the city, I had lots of questions. He assured me that he would be available to answer my questions and to be by my side during my transaction. He delivered 100% and I so glad I had someone like him looking out for my best interest.
As a first-time buyer, I needed lots of guidance. Scott was patient and allowed me to take the time I needed, as he guided me through the purchase of my condo. I highly recommend him.
Scott, your expertise in marketing a home for sale is precise and really packs a punch. You knew exactly what to do to get our home out front and on the top of the list for potential buyers. You really think “out of the box” when it comes to marketing and you made our house shine. Thank you so much for everything you did. I can’t put a price on your knowledge.
I guess you can teach an old dog a new trick and boy did you educate me on how the real estate market has changed since I was an agent and appraiser years ago. You are a smart negotiator, and your marketing ideas really work. Doris and I appreciate everything you did for us. When it’s time to buy and sell again…you will be our man.
Scott, we are so thrilled to have had you sell our home for us. When we met you at the open house you were hosting, we were instantly impressed with your knowledge of real estate. Your guidance on staging our home saved us so much time and money. You have a great eye for photography and marketing a home -- we almost fell in love again with ours once we saw your marketing materials. Needless to say, you exceeded our expectations all the way around. We will definitely be referring you to our friends. Thank you so much.
You are a prince among men. You have been absolutely wonderful throughout this buying process. I couldn't have lucked into better hands. Your guidance and patience made the whole purchasing process less stressful. Everyone should have such an agent.
Thanks so much for making our move easy and stress-free. We absolutely love our new house and look forward to exploring our new neighborhood. You truly helped us find the "perfect" house. When we are ready to "move up" we will certainly call you again. Thanks for everything!
In today’s market we were very nervous about selling our home. We knew that it would take months, and months to sell, (if it even sold) and most likely we would lose all of our profit resulting in less down payment on our new home. Scott, we are so glad that you are knowledgeable about market trends and were able to keep us priced ahead of competition. Your up to date communications regarding the market were invaluable and allowed us to make educated decisions regarding our investment. We owe you so much and will definitely refer family and friends to you.
Scott, we just wanted to take a minute and say thank you for your true professionalism in the handling of selling our property. Over the years we have dealt with many REALTORS and you certainly took the extra step above and beyond your call of duty. From the first day of obtaining the listing through the closing you kept us informed and updated every minute of the way. You explained every step in detail and kept us calm when we were getting nervous. A big thank you for everything and at any time you are more than welcome to use our names as references. We will certainly give you the highest recommendation possible.
I was so glad that Scott Sells was my “agent of choice” when it came to sell my home. From start to finish, your expertise in selling my home was on target. I realize now, that pricing the home correctly according to the market is so important. I look around at the other homes that were priced too high and see how they are still sitting- waiting for a buyer to come along- as if that is going to happen. You really helped to motivate me in this tough market… Thank you is not enough!
