    Dear Scott,
    Me and my family want to thank you for helping us find our dream home. It was a pleasure working with you as you were very patient taking us to showings and understanding what it was that we were looking for, so we didn’t waste time looking at homes that were not in our price range and style. Once we found our home you made the process go very smoothly and took very good care to keep us informed of any documents we needed for closing updates on the closing timeline and were there for us at closing and even checked in on us after we moved in! Great experience. We hope the next time is just as good as the last.

    Sincerely, The Sharkozy family

    Scott helped me get my condo at a very nice price, and he is a very nice person to work with as well. We had great communication and he showed me how professional he is. He helped me schedule the time to look at the properties that I was interested in, and I quickly found the property that I wanted go for. He also got me fully informed at the whole process, which make me clear about where are we at every single step.

    I’ve yet to purchase a place, however Scott has helped me out and made me comfortable with the buying process. He’s promptly sent over all requested information and comps. His professionalism and attentiveness has been top notch. I would definitely recommend as I know his patience with me finding my home will pay off!

    I am currently in the process of looking to buy a place within the next year! Knowing Scott’s experience I contacted him and let him know my plan and the type of places I am interested in purchasing. Scott has done a great job in communicating with me as well as letting me know exactly what is going on in the market. Knowing Scott’s track record, I know that when I am ready to pull the trigger on a place there is no better agent to get me the right deal!

    Scott is one that stands out amongst the rest. In a challenging market for both buyer and agents, Scott sets himself apart with his incredible attention to detail, his clients and understanding the speed at which to operate to secure the deal. I had the pleasure of working with Scott last year and I cannot speak highly enough of my experience working with him. He has forever earned my business and trust.

    Thanks to Scott’s experience and knowledge I was able to purchase a 3 flat at a way bellow market price. He was connecting the dots between all parties involved in the process and I think the most important thing is he gets the deal done. I have no doubt in recommending Scott to everyone I know …. Thank you

    Scott was completely transparent with us and always kept us in the loop when we purchased our building. He even helped us get a huge discount! Would definitely recommend his service.

  8. Katie Twardak

    Scott is a good person. We ended up signing up with our family friend who is a realtor since our whole fam has used her and Scott completely understood. He even still send us deals to look at. I will absolutely be passing his number around to my friends. We need more people like him!

    Scott has been my go-to for real estate advice for many years. Although I’m not ready to buy just yet, he has an incredible eye for a good deal and has helped me find a great apartment at a great price. Scott is honest and wants the best for his clients. I know as soon as I’m ready to buy a property, he’ll be the first one I turn to.

    Scott is calm, collected & focused. He sets hefty goals and works hard to achieve them. He is constantly educating himself and always learning new ways to bring his clients the highest level of service. I am excited to be a part of Scotts journey to success and looking fwd to learning from him along the way.

    I just recently closed on a property with Scott and needless to say, the rather complicated process quite simplified for me by Scott and his team. There are 3 very specific things that were outstanding about Scott and the services offered.

    1. Understanding my needs… Scott took the time to really understand what I was looking for and tried to match that to properties available in the market. Unlike my past experience, where I just received tons of notifications, this was much more tailored to my needs.

    2. Providing specific market expertise and advise – on why certain potentials would work more for my needs than not. It was fact-based specifics versus hand-waving opinions

    3. Process simplifications – updated me with all steps involved with finding, evaluating, and closing a property. Also available to offer contacts for other services (Home Inspection, etc..). Scott and his team made the process very simple to follow.

    My experience was very good and I much appreciated the services provided by Scott and his team.

    Scott was very easy to talk with , made me very comfortable, we clicked right away , happy I signed up with him , had a couple of glitches along the way but, his experience kicked in and made the sale go through, I’d highly recommend scott if you’re trying to sell your home ,

  14. JT Pastor

    I can’t say enough great things about Scott.

    As a first time home-buyer, he was extremely helpful, detailed in his research and explanations, and diligent in working to find us the best deal possible.

    The condo we ended up purchasing far surpassed our initial expectations, and that is in major part due to Scott’s efforts. Even after the deal went through he made sure we were as comfortable and confident as possible during the closing process. He connected us with a great lender, great attorneys, and provided us with an excellent closing agent to coordinate every last detail.

    We will 100% be using Scott in the future for all of our home buying needs.

  15. Lucy Geglio

    We had a great experience working with Scott- he was incredibly responsive and communicative throughout the process which was really important for us as first time buyers. Every showing that Scott arranged for us was on the first day that a home had been listed, and for the property we ended up purchasing that made a huge difference since they received multiple offers after ours. We highly recommend working with Scott!

  16. Steven Dorsey

    Me and my wife were first time homebuyers .working with Scott was a great experience. He helped us find our dream home at a great price ,walking us through the entire process step by step. He is very patient And he did not waste our time showing us houses we weren’t interested in. My family thanks you for a pleasant experience and a job well done. If I’m ever in the market of buying another home Scott is the man I will be calling .

  17. Tyler Hendry

    From the outset, Scott was very professional and accommodating. I had to sell my condo in Chicago in a relatively tight time frame in the midst of an unbearably cold winter. Nevertheless, Scott worked diligently to find a buyer at a great offer. Unfortunately I could not get my parking unit sold with my unit as a packaged deal, which was a little bit of an issue for us. Despite this fact, Scott continued found creative ways to advertise the parking unit and was able to secure a deal only about a month or so after we locked in a contract for the Condo.

    I would highly recommend Scott as your realtor. His determination to ink a deal and overall persistence led to a great result for all parties involved in the transaction. If and when I come back to Chicago, he will be my first and only call for my next deal.

    My husband and I worked with Scott to purchase our first home in Lincoln Park. We ended up being in a multiple-offer situation, and Scott used his expertise to inform us as to how we could make our offer more favorable, which ultimately led to us closing the deal. As first-time home buyers we were not quite sure what to expect, and Scott kept us informed every step of the way. Scott was prompt, responsive, and always willing to go the extra mile to help us out and get the deal done. We definitely recommend working with Scott!

    Scott and the whole team were awesome!!!!! They went above and beyond to sell my condo. With my living 300 miles away they handled everything for us. I just can say enough about the hoops they jumped through to sell for me ! Again thank you Scott and your team!!!!

  20. John Murphy

    Scott has been a friend of mine for over 10 years. He patiently helped me through the home buying process and thoroughly executed the sale when I finally found the perfect place. I highly recommend Scott for your needs whether you are buying or selling a home as he and his team were very attentive to my needs and concerns while searching for and purchasing my first home. As long as he’s in the business, I will continue to use his expertise and recommend him to anyone in need of a real estate agent. Thank you again, Scott!
