Bought a Single Family home in 2014 in Minnehaha, Minneapolis, MN.
We are from out of state and we wanted to buy an investment property in Minnesota. We contacted Scott because he had such high reviews. We were able to schedule a week with Scott when we would be in Minneapolis to see houses. We were concerned that a week would not be enough time to get to know the different areas and see enough houses. We were pleasantly surprised that Scott spent so much time showing us dozens of houses in a wide range of areas in Minneapolis and St. Paul.
I work in construction and I could tell from Scotts observations and recommendations that he was very familiar with residential construction. It also became clear the more time we spent with Scott that he was very familiar with the ins and outs of property management and the things potential renters would be looking for. Scott had an eye for parts of the house that might be a problem and he was familiar with the kind of construction work that would be required to get various problems remedied.
We could tell Scott was busy but he was always on time to meet us and he always took the time to point out the important factors and potential pros and cons of every property we saw. He was very patient and polite with us and took us to many more homes than we expected to be able to visit. He was very honest when it came to explaining the drawbacks of some of the properties we saw and explained why those properties would be difficult to resell because of problems they had.
Once we found a house we wanted, Scott was very quick to prepare the offer and very skillful in his negotiating. He was able to get the price reduced and also able to get the seller to pay most of the closing costs.
We can't say enough good things about Scott and we plan to work with him in our future investments.

Thank you so much for the wonderful review! It was a joy to meet and work with you both on your first investment property! We are actively working on bids to get your new property ready to be rented. I'll have you a new tenant in no time!
Bought a Townhouse home in 2014 for approximately $150K in Chanhassen, MN.
I don't know where to start. Scott has been fabulous! Scott recently helped me purchase an investment property. From start to finish he has gone above and beyond. First, he negotiated a great deal for me. Second, he ran over to the property at the very least 25 times to help get VARIOUS bids from contractors or after I closed to let contractors in to get work done. He even went so far as to let me ship a house full of light fixtures and hardware to his office and held onto it for two weeks before he filled up his car to the brim and personally drove it over to meet a contractor to have it installed (and this was after the property closed).
Bottomline, I know Scott is a busy guy, but somehow he finds the time to go way above and beyond. He also has such a positive attitude when he is going the extra mile. I think its because he truly enjoys his job and enjoys making his clients happy. I would definitely recommend Scott to anyone who is looking for a good realtor!

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $175K in Nya, MN.
Scott was wonderful. He got us the house of our dreams, was always on time ,returned phone calls quickly and answered all of our many,many questions. We will be calling him for the sale of a family member's home soon. Thanks Scott!
I have nothing but good things to say about Scott Haubrich! New to Minneapolis, I emailed several realtors on Zillow with high reviews, including Scott. He was the first, and only to respond...Indicative of the responsiveness and excellent attention that were the hallmark of experiences with Scott over the next few months. Scott was highly organized, responded to emails quickly, and was always one step ahead of the game in taking care of details of offers, showings, paperwork, etc. He was also very willing to make himself available, despite his obviously busy schedule, to go on showings on relatively short notice when properties of interest became available. He was willing to explore various price-point in multiple neighborhoods in Minneapolis, even the outskirts! This combination of responsiveness and availability made it possible to pounce quickly when I found interesting properties. Perhaps what I appreciated most about Scott was his laid-back approach. I never felt pushed or pressured, yet he was swift in helping me make things happen when I was interested. This approachable style also made me feel very comfortable in communicating openly with him about my own thoughts and needs, and asking questions about properties, the process, etc. We looked at many homes, made a few offers (all multiple offers that Scott facilitated well), and finally found the perfect home at the right price. During and after the sale (a foreclosure which he closed in less than a month, even over the holidays! Truly a miracle!), he connected me with AMAZING referrals for everything from financing and title, to inspectors and contractors. I will recommend Scott to anyone I know, and would highly suggest him to you if you are looking for a knowledgeable, friendly, organized, and responsive professional!
Scott was very knowledgable and professional in our home search. I couldn't have asked for a better realtor and someone who I could trust to tell me their honest opinion on the property we were looking at. He's great at keeping you in the loop on everything he is doing and has done with the other parties involved. On a scale of 1-5 I would definitely recommend Scott! He's the best!

Thanks Chris! I can't wait for your Halloween party this year!
Found a tenant for a Townhouse home in Brooklyn Park, MN.
Scott made the process and execution of renting out my house absolutely painless. In a very quick timeframe he found a renter and put them through the process and within a month they moved in. He also educated me on the process since this is my first landlord experience. Thank you Scott!!!
I needed to trust the person who would be helping me through one of my most important and challenging life events. The characteristic most important to me in a realtor is integrity; and Scott is someone you can trust! Scott was very clear and patient in educating me about the process. I never felt stupid asking any question. Scott guided me and made many suggestions, but always was respectful of my final decisions. He was on the spot to answer any phone calls, no matter the time and day. Scott did everything he could to make things less anxiety provoking for me. He even went the extra mile to help us meet the particulars to finalize the deal. Without reservation, I highly recommend Scott to be your realtor.
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $350K in Prior Lake, MN.
We chose to work with Scott Haubrich based on first impressions. We met Scott while he was representing another home in the area. Scott's knowledge of all aspect of the process were key for us as the stress of having two children, busy work schedules and purhasing a home was overwhelming for us. Scott is professional, curteous, thoughtful and never pressured us no matter how unrealistic we were in our expectations. Scott also has experience with rental business and is providing this service to us as well.
We highly recommend Scott Haubrich and have also gained a new friend!
Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $225K in Minneapolis, MN.
Scott is a Real Estate All-Star. Having worked with several realtors in the past, he has out-shown them all with his knowledge and professionalism. He has thorough knowledge when it comes to the "Value" of a home beyond location/amenities and is able to provide insight into mechanical issues and what is needed in regards to maintenance and repairs.
He is one of the hardest working people I know, along with being caring and compassionate. He takes your position and his role seriously. He made my property look fantastic though his own work and was willing to put his marketing dollars into the house to ultimately get it sold.
Whether it's negotiating, following-up on showings or home improvements, Scott is tireless, dependable, honest and always available. I recommended him to anyone who is selling, looking to buy or renting their property. He has done all of those items for me and I wouldn't work with anyone else.

Thank you Michael!! You were great to work with as well! Always open to suggestions and keeping your house immaculate for the showings. Best wishes in 2014!
This realtor, Scott Haubrich will really work to find exactly what you want in a home or investment property. I've used him as my realtor twice since moving to Minneapolis in June 2012, for a job promotion. A very tough Negotiator for his clients! I bought an investment property, held for 8 months, had Scott Haubrich sell it, and I made money, as the market has moved Greatly. The next property took a lot of negotiation as other parties were interested. Very tough 2 month negotiation, but I closed yesterday on a nice 2 bedroom townhome near Minnehaha Falls! I'm in the neighborhood where I want to be now. Excellent Realtor, I assure any buyer that they won't be disappointed!
