Scott (he, him, his) fell in love with Chicago over 30 years ago when he came here to study at Northwestern University. As a Dream Town Agent, Scott strives to instill the joy and thrill that he experienced when buying his first condo to every new client. "I remember every moment of the process...searching, finding, loving, closing...it is such a huge decision." Scott wants all of his clients to feel that same excitement as they find the home of their dreams or sell a home that is filled with memories.
Scott has been an extremely successful Theatre Director and teacher for over 20 years. The skills used to direct a show are also related to Real Estate. His creativity, empathy and ability to listen to his client's wants and needs as if they were his own will always lead to, 'And they lived happily ever after.'
The bow-tie Scott wears is not only charmingly unique, it is a perfect metaphor for his work ethic. Let him take the loose ends and tie them into a neat and tidy bow for you. He will even show you how to tie one yourself if you want to be charmingly unique, too.
On a side note, Scott is the original creator of the hit show "Schoolhouse Rock Live!" and adores doggies and traveling with his husband, Chris whenever time allows.
So thankful to have met and worked with Scott on our first-time home purchase. Scott has a wealth of useful first time homebuyer resources and home market knowledge. Our purchase process certainly had some twists a turns, and Scott was there to support the entire time with positive affirmation. Through his advocacy and support we were able to navigate pandemic nuances and market uncertainty, find/select the right home for our family and be informed confident consumers the entire time.
Scott has helped me sell a place and rent a condo in the past. Now he helped me buy. Due to the fact that I am self-employed, the process was very arduous but Scott metaphorically held my hand the whole way. He is extremely responsive, consultative and compassionate. He gave me invaluable guidance and truly cared about what was happening to me throughout the process. I wouldn't recommend anyone else but Scott to assist in buying or selling your next home. Magnificent isn't a strong enough word.
hands down best real estate agent ever!
Scott is a great agent! Always quick to respond, very helpful, and supportive though the process. He has a wealth of knowledge and a great communication style that made this much easier. There was no question he did not answer and was always willing to find a way to help my find my home. Even with all the chaos and concerns with Covid he made my search safe, fun and allowed me to find the house of my dreams within my price range. Thank you Scott!
Scott is a gifted "people person" who knew how to keep this client (me) moving forward while managing my home-buying anxiety with skill and compassion (I needed a lot of hand-holding). Anybody would be lucky to have him as a realtor.
Scott and I have known each other for many years and the trust in him helping me with this purchase was both professional and fun.
Scott, thanks again for moving my sale as quickly as possible. Sold in under a month. BAM! So nice to be able to move forward to the next awesome thing!
First-time buyer and I felt confident every step of the process because of Scottâ??s support and expertise.
Scott did a amazing job walking with us through our first home purchase. The BEST!
Scott worked very hard to help me sell my condo. He quickly earned my trust and would share his honest opinion, even when it was news I did not want to hear. My lawyer was a disappointment on my sale, but Scott kept on her case to make sure my needs were met. If I ever need to buy or sell again, I will definitely be contacting him.
Scott provided truly extraordinary service, finding me the apartment of my dreams, watching over every step of the process, preparing me for each potential hurdle, and trouble shooting problems that arose as a result of missteps on the part of the co-op management group. I feel very fortunate to have worked with Scott.
Not only was Scott extremely friendly and patient with our myriad of questions, he also helped us every step of the way. He was thorough, organized, and went above and beyond our expectations making our first home buying experience painless and fun!
Scott was a DREAM to work with as we purchased our first home. From explaining how the entire process would go down step by step at our first meeting, to helping us refine our search, setting up showings, and walking us through the steps of making an offer, he was always there to answer questions and make sure we felt comfortable. We love our new home and are grateful to Scott for all he did to get us here!
Expert in his field; an excellent communicator; never pushy nor overbearing, supportive and helpful on every level. Sensitive and alert to the needs and anxieties of his client; always courteous, respectful, positive and clear. He is adaptable and flexible yet never loses sight of taproots and essentials. Scott Ferguson is a man of keen intelligence and absolute integrity. He created from a potentially disruptive and nerve-wracking challenge, a journey of support and sanity that I will always deeply appreciate. And he has a wonderful, most engaging sense of humor!
We loved working with Scott. He was clear, honest, realistic and very patient with us house-buying-newbies throughout the process. Scott is such a sweet guy, and we felt at all times that he wanted the best for us. We would recommend him to any of our friends without hesitation.
I had a wonderful experience with Scott. I was in a time crunch and stressful situation to find a place and he always remained positive and helpful. If I ever had a question he could not answer, his response was not, 'I don't know', but 'let's see what we can find out'.
I went into this process expecting all kinds of set backs and delays, but it went a heck of a lot quicker and easier than I ever thought it would, and most of that was down to Scott. He pushed me when I needed to be pushed, put in the extra time to get information for me, and really looked out for me every step of the way. I would use him again in a heart beat if he hadn't already found me the perfect home!
Scott is the best real estate agent I've ever worked with. I was only in Chicago for three days, he let me view several homes each day. Then he was a tremendous help negotiating and facilitating a long distance house purchase. He was extremely helpful every step of the way. I love my new house! Thanks Scott!
My husband and I were very nervous to start our home search. With our being extremely risk adverse and hesitant, we figured it would take a lot of time and stress to make it through the whole process. In our first meeting with Scott he walked us through everything and answered all our questions. We went from being really nervous to really excited in one visit! Scott had all the answers to our (many) questions and was always available to text or chat if we were feeling anxious or unsure. Scott made every step of this process enjoyable and it felt like we had someone on our side, cheering us on and supporting us through everything. I am recommending Scott to all my friends looking for homes in Chicago and I know he’ll be helping us with any future home purchases as well!

Very fast! So helpful! Thank you so much for your time and advice. We would hire you again for sure.
Scott was awesome! From the initial searches until the final closing, he was helpful and supportive throughout the process. And most importantly, he made the process fun. I've known him for years in various capacities, and all his experiences (both within and outside of the real estate industry) has molded him into an amazing real estate agent. He's the only real estate agent I recommend to anyone!
I would absolutely rate Scott a 5! He was amazing to work with and made the entire process a breeze. I'd recommend him to anyone and everyone looking to buy their first or next home!
I probably can't write anything that would do justice to how Scott helped us through a roller coaster of a buying experience. He patiently took us to a *lot* of properties, and when we finally found the right fit, he helped us - and was very hands-on - through a less than pleasant negotiating process. The whole time, he kept a sense of humor, pragmatism, and patience which made the experience so much better than it might have been. In the end, we got the place, we love it, we had a fantastic team helping, and our first home-buying experience was an adventure! Thank you, Scott!
Scott was an amazing agent. He patiently lead us through the whole process of first-time home-buying, answering all of our questions and giving us clear and accurate expectations the whole way. He genuinely cared about us as clients and made us feel comfortable enough with him so that we could be honest about all of our needs and concerns. We would recommend him to anyone!
Scott was great at accommodating our location requirements and home preferences. We were very appreciative for the flexibility in his schedule to work in showing us places on the weekend. He communicated thoroughly every step of the way and if we had questions he was timely and happy to help us. Could not have asked for a better or easier experience. Thank you, Scott!
We cannot adequately express our gratitude for all the care, thoughtfulness, and hand-holding during this whole process. Everyone always told me how challenging and emotional the process can be. You proved them all wrong. It was actually a joy having you on our side and advocating every step of the way. You are absolutely the best. We are two very happy fellows.
Scott was amazing. Very Very patient and helpful and extremely willing to go the extra mile. I couldn't be happier!
Scott was so attentive and wonderful to deal with. I would/will recommend him again and again to my friends.
Scott did an amazing job representing us during the listing and sales process. He did great market research for us, made excellent resource recommendations, and went above & beyond to ensure the house was in the best possible shape for showings. We couldn't be more please we had him our court!!!
It was wonderful working with Scott. My goals were very straightforward and he was very clear on helping me find what I needed. He was blunt when necessary, and accommodating when I need some time and space to consider how to handle different issues. I take these surveys seriously, so the only reason it is 4 stars instead of 5 is that I always feel there is room to grow. Most of the communication gaps had to do with my hectic and unpredictable schedule, and I was lucky to have an agent like Scott who went with the flow very well.
Scott was amazing from beginning to end. He responded extremely fast to my initial interest in a Condo. This was my first real estate purchase ever, but I can tell that Scott went above and beyond what is normally expected of a realtor.
I'd worked with Scott many years ago in a different field and knew that he would be a wonderful realtor. His attention to detail is impeccable, he is tireless in his efforts, and his attitude is always positive. We were relocating from another state and our home search took some time due to the distance. Scott was patient and helpful throughout our transition. He is genuine and hardworking. We highly recommend him.
Scott is the best agent I could have ever hoped for! I am a first time home buyer, and I can be quite a difficult person (read: very picky and opinionated). Scott sat down with me and heard exactly what I was looking for, and he showed me many many amazing places. He helped me further narrow down what I was looking for, and was patient and not pushy at all when I liked many places but they weren't quite right. He never made me feel rushed to pick a place. He also took the time to really explain the process to me, and made sure I was comfortable with each step of the process. My closing ended up being super fast and rushed, and he helped me through each crazy step. Scott was, to say the least, amazing. I highly recommend him to anyone who wants to find their perfect home!
