Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $275K in Island Lake, IL.
Scott was our agent for a home purchase and was a great partner over the course of several months. When we were first contemplating looking at homes, he helped us explore financing options and directed us toward an excellent credit repair service to get us in shape to actually qualify for a loan. Once we were ready to look seriously, he did a great job understanding our profile and which houses would work for us and which would not. He was very honest and helpful when looking at homes, helping to steer us away from ones that would not be the right fit or were not good values but also respecting our opinions. Never once did it seem he was in it for the commission but seemed wiling to keep looking forever rather than let us pull the trigger on a house that would be the wrong choice. Looking at homes with him was also a lot of fun.
Scott also stands out because he remains totally involved after the contract is signed, where some realtors tend to step back and just show up at the end to collect the commission. Instead, he was an advocate throughout the long contract-to-closing process (foreclosure) and worked with the other realtor, attorneys, and lender. He saw the deal through to the closing table and was also available after closing for our questions and follow up.
When we had an appraisal problem, Scott pushed to make the deal stick together by creatively having us shift to a 203K rehab loan. (And we used a lender he works closely with who is also amazing.) Scott also found us a great 203K contractor whom we are nothing but pleased with - and normally we do this kind of work ourselves so we expected to hate the contractor. Scott's people are always good, competent people - which means it's not just a pleasure to work with him but also the team of colleagues he's assembled. And Scott is a FANTASTIC combination of intelligent, thorough, attentive, pragmatic, honest.

I recently chose Scott to help me purchase my first home and I was very very pleased with the service he offered. Scott is a wealth of knowledge from not only the real estate market but also to home improvement. There really wasn't a question I could ask that he didn't have the correct answer for.
Scott set me up with a slew of tools and helped get me to a point where we were able to select a list of properties to visit. The website that he set me up with was perfectly simple and I really enjoyed using it and selecting homes to look at. There was no pressure to look at one property over another, it was simply whatever I wanted.
While reviewing properties Scott would objectively point out the possible issues or concerns with the property. He was truly concerned with finding me a safe, affordable, and long standing investment of a home.
When we had found the home I wanted, Scott was lightning fast to get an offer written up and kept me in the loop 100% of the time. Our offer was successful and everything wen't perfect!
I would HIGHLY recommend Scott to help you with your next home purchase. I can guarantee that not only will you receive excellent service but also an excellent home in the end!

Couldn't ask for a better real estate agent and i will tell anyone who asks. Scott is friendly, dependable, and quick to respond. He will always give you most knowledgable and honest answer. I spoke to five different agents. He was the only one that came through with the perfect house for me.

Scott listened to us from the onset, and my husband and I felt like he was on our "team" regarding the search for a new house. He understood our concerns and constraints and was reassuring about the house-hunting process all the way along. We felt that we were in good hands with Scott and trusted him implicitly.
We were very picky and he was patient and took us to see tons of properties. Very honest and frank in his feedback and assessments of the homes we saw and seemed very knowledgable. Great guy, check him out!

If you're looking for a knowledgable, peristent, and honest realtor, then look no further. I ended up meeting Scott randomly, by looking on Zillow.com. After meeting Scott, we realized that he was heaven sent. The entire process of locating a home and moving forward was made simple thanks to Scott. He stood by us throughout the whole process. He was able to find us a home that fit perfectly with us, and pulled strings all around to make it a seamless process. I couldnt have asked for a better realtor. I would highly recommend using Scott, especially if you are like me, a first time home owner. Scott is definitely the guy to go to! Keep up the great work Scott, I appreciate everything that you do!
Scott helped my wife and I short sale our condo and buy a house. Scott was extremely quick at responding to my inquiries with accurate information. He always moved his schedule around us to fit within our tight schedule for showings. He was able to short sale our condo in a very timely manner. He provided us with great choices for houses to look at and was more then willing to get showings for ones that were a great distance away that were not in his MLS area. Scott is very knowledgeable about the entire process and definitely did the research on every house we said we had interest in. We have ended up with a house we absolutely love that has all of the wants and needs we had on our list and Scott was able to get it for us at a great price.
Scott is young and easy to connect with. He is knowledgeable on buying and selling homes. He put my house for sale immediately and made sure it was shown quickly. He also helped me buy a new home and remained very patient through the search even as I started looking further away from his home base.
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $150K in Huntley, IL.
My husband and I just moved to the area and Scott was very helpful as to locations and properties that would work best for us. We had several complex matters that needed to be met and Scott listened and provided well for us. He was extremely knowledgeable about conditions that we otherwise wouldn't have known. He was friendly to talk with and stuck with us through the entire process. I would definetly recommend him. It only took us 3 houses with Scott to find the perfect one.
