Showed home in 2012 in Saylorville, IA 50313.

My husband and I were interested in purchasing a different home and were referred to Scott Gates. We found found Mr. Gates to be professional, knowledgeable, honest, and patient in helping us search for the perfect home. Mr. Gates took a lot of time to show us multiple homes and demonstrated his knowledge of property value, financing options, the best/safest location for the price, and was very flexible in doing all of this. We also noticed that he has a keen eye for concerns with the houses we were looking at (i.e. strcutural damage, flooding basements, mold issues, and other construction related concerns that might not be visible to the average person shopping for a house). He was honest and seemed more concerned with our satisfaction than making a sale. We would highly recommend him!

Bought a home in 2012.

His background as a licensed contractor was very helpful in helping me to identify areas that may need repaired and how much those repairs would cost. He was able to talk my sellers down $12,000 which is the only way I could afford the house that I really wanted! Scott was easy for me to get ahold of and I appreciated his personal integrity in making sure he was helping me make the decision that was best for me and not what was best for his wallet. I have already recommened him to numerous friends and will definitely use him in the future!

Bought a home in 2013.

Ryan and I were so pleased with Scott Gates! Before Scott, we thought finding our dream home just wasn't going to happen. We contacted a building company that we heard does great work to find out what construction costs would look like. The co-owner said not to give up yet and referred us to his partner, Scott, who was in building AND real estate!

I cannot stress enough how comforting and handy it was to have a realtor with a building background. It saved us time and money on inspections. In the end, we only had ONE house inspected by a state certified guy...our dream home! There was a house or two we looked at before that Scott was able to cross off our list because of construction issues. We would have never noticed them until after we had paid an inspector.

Scott was speedy in response time, took care of all of our closing work, and brought down the price on an already reasonably priced home. This was our first home and Scott was very patient with us and answered every question in terms we could understand.

I know this review sounds like maybe we knew him prior to our experience with him, but Scott Gates was a total stranger to us before we started working with him! Highly recommend this guy!

Scott is very knowledgeable and made the process of buying a house easy and go smooth. As a first time home buyer, the task seemed daunting at times but Scott made us feel like he was on our side and gave us assurance during the entire process. Scott was readily available for questions or concerns. I would highly recommend friends, family or anyone looking an agent to give Scott a call! He's terrific!

Bought a home in 2012.

I enjoyed working with Scott to buy my home. I was a first time home buyer, and unsure of the process. Scott explained everything clearly and answered any questions I had. Scott is also a licensed contractor so when we were looking through houses that needed some work he was able to tell me what the cost would be and how long the work would take. At one property we walked in to a basement that was freshly painted and looked pristine and Scott was immediately able to find spots in the foundation that had water leaks and were buckling. There were also a couple of houses that we looked at that were flipped properties and Scott was able to look at the price the buyer paid, look at the work that was done and how much money was actually put in to the property. I felt extremely comfortable working with Scott and I ended up with a great house. I would highly recommend Scott to anyone.

Bought a home in 2013.

Scott was very thorough and expeditious with all of the documents and helped negotiate our purchase of a for sale by owner. The property was in an estate and had some additional "hoops" to jump through and Scott took care of all the details for us. His knowledge of home values and attention to detail was very comforting and helped us get a great deal. He arranged the financing and the closing and everything in between. I couldn't imagine the process going any smoother and we will recommend Scott to anyone buying or selling a home
