Bought a home in 2011.
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our experience with Scott Shepard. After dealing with two previous real estate agents without satisfaction, we contacted Scott on a recommendation from a friend. We found Scott to be friendly, knowledgeable and willing to go the extra mile for us, literally! We viewed a couple dozen homes all over Howard and Miami county for nearly a year, and Scott was always enthusiastic about helping us to find our dream home.

Scott was always conscientious and quick to respond to questions and requests to view homes on short notice. Although my wife is a 'local' he really made every effort to help us get a feel for the neighborhood, local attractions and services available as well as thinking ahead to our eventual family and schooling needs. As a first time homebuying couple we lacked expertise in searching or ownership. Scott provided us with the expert eye of a veteran homeowner and realtor and was quick to point out defects or potential concerns, purchasing and financing information as well as advice for our eventual home ownership. We can genuinely say that because Scott always kept us in mind and knew what we were looking for, perhaps better than we could articulate, that he's responsible for helping us to find our "forever home", for which we will be forever grateful!

Like a previous client commented, we also had pre-qualified for a great rate at an online provider, but Scott recommended a local bank who managed to best our "best offer" by a nice margin. He made the closing process very easy, educational and was able to keep the process moving, important to us as we were closing on our home and getting married in the same week! Clearly,he has a great sense of humor and patience as well.

We highly recommend Scott Shepard if you are looking for a home in central Indiana. He made a difficult, stressful process fun and enjoyable for my wife and I and although he found us our dream home, if we are ever looking for property, commercial or family, he will be the person we trust to help us fulfill all our hopes.

Sold a Single Family home in 2010 in Wabash, IN.
I've dealt with Scott for years and he has never let me down. As a woman, I appreciate his insight into things I wouldn't have considered. He sold my house and helped me buy a nicer place at a great place. As a single mom, I felt he was a nice guy who was looking out for me and my kids. I honestly don't know what that other person who said Scott was a "man's man" because he was great for me. A true gentleman and God-fearing man.

I don't care how you slice it, that's rare. I will go back to Scott and Spear exclusively.

Bought a Single Family home in 2009 for approximately $150K in Peru, IN.
After 15 years in the Navy, moving every 2-3 years and working with Realtors all over the country, my family was in need of a home in the Peru Indiana area. Knowing very little about the area, and having very specific requirements for a home, we interviewed several Realtors, then placed our trust in Scott Shepherd - and we're happy we did.

Scott worked with us for nearly a year showing us homes on little or no notice - including nights and weekends, and was thoroughly professional and friendly every time. His expertise was evident, and his knowledge of the local area unsurpassed. He found the perfect home at a great price, and helped us find our way around the local area. He introduced us to local professionals and businesses that we continue to use on a daily basis.

Though we had already been pre-qualified for our mortgage, Scott recommended a local bank which gave us superior service, a better rate, and was familiar with a loan program that saved us thousands on closing costs.

Scott Shepherd is the finest Realtor I've worked with, and can be trusted to find property, solve problems, and be honest throughout the process. If you need to trust your Realtor, go to Scott.

Sold a home in 2010.
I would hightly recomend Scott Shepherd he came to my home and to have it put on the market and the very next day a gentelman came in to the office who stated that he'd like to be in a certain area and which was the area that my home was located in so an appointment was set up the very day. The gentleman liked it and it was sold and I so appreciate all Scotts expertise in his selling my home. I so like his commitment to the person selling their home and how he works dillgently whith the person purchasing the home. His values and his capabilities to make everyone know that he is putting his all into each person he is working with. I also like his Chirst like attitude in his values he puts forth in his life and much consideration of others when you step foot in Spear Real Estate office you know your at the right place for your made to feel welcome. HIs local knowledge of the area and surounding are is his expertise. His way of Processing the sale and working with the valued customer is the best. He is also throughout the transaction at all times is so easily to be available if anyone has any questions or needs knowledge about something in response to the buying of the home or selling the home he works great with the banks or lending institutions in all negotiiation hes skills is excellent.

Sold a Single Family home in 2006 in Wabash, IN.
He listed the first house I sold. It was a good price and was sold to the first person who looked at the house. When I first listed the house, I got comfortable thinking it would be forever before the house sold, since houses just were not selling at that time. He even assisted with my moving to my new location.

This past week he assisted me in another purchase. I acquired this purchase and am very pleased not only with the purchase but the property I purchased. With his expertise, I purchased a nicer property than the one I was originally pricing.

I highly recommend this real estate agent. He knows what he is talking about as far as the value of the property and whether or not I am getting a good deal.

He is a good Christian man and can be believed in what he has to say.

We connected, but it did not work out.
This is a "man's man" - if you are a man, you will do much better when you deal with Scott. He is very cordial to women, but he doesn't "listen". He has preconceived ideas about what men and women want in a house. We were NOT pleased with the recommendations he made after appraising our home, especially after the realtor that sold our home didn't mention the changes Scott wanted us to make AND sold our home for significantly more than he wanted to list it for. He is very slow at replying to both voice and emails, during another negotiation. We also felt that he had absolutely no innovative ideas when it came to using the internet and u-tube video for showcasing homes. Pictures of his listings are either every room in the house or just one outside shot. Not sure what his success rate is, but he didn't get our business.
