We were referred to Scott by a friend in late 2017 and ended up buying in May 2018. From the first time, we met him it was clear the Scott had our best interests in mind. He has an amazing working knowledge of construction, this is important when deciding if a house is worth the investment.
I have to say we were not the easiest clients to work for, I work in the bush in a fly-in camp plus my wife works full time making it hard to plan and communicate with us. I had my reservations if finding a new home was feasible with me out of town. Scott took to the challenge and guided us diligently. Every place we planned to view Scott had done research in advance and was able to help us compete in a very active real estate market while keeping an upper-hand. Once we finally decided on a property that we wanted, Scott won us the multiple offer and he continued to help us navigate through the documentation, in fact, a very challenging issue arose with the City a few weeks before completion.
Scott handled this crazy situation with expertise. The seller had given him additional documentation that had revealed an outstanding inspection notice from the City dated 2003. Upon contacting the City, Scott discovered the issues were unresolved. I was in camp and with only 2 weeks before the date of completion, we could see that the listing agent did not have the experience to navigate this extremely sensitive situation.
We all know how difficult it can be to talk to the right person at a big organization like the City. Scott was able to coordinate with the City’s building inspectors to access the property before the date of completion and fully resolve the outstanding inspections. Stress dissipated with these issues resolved, plus during these frantic two weeks, the listing agent made a serious addendum error that gave us an additional $25,000 off the purchase price. It feels great to win.
Scott went above and beyond to help us and I would refer him without hesitation to anyone who is looking for a real estate agent. Scott is the real deal, and we were lucky to have had the opportunity to have him on our side.
