    Excellent is the first word that comes to mind when I think of my experience with Scott.
      My wife and I decided to put our house on the market and started researching realtors in Mclean. We fell in love with him before our first meeting was over. He was the nicest guy and easy to speak with. His honesty, knowledge of our market, and winning spirit are just a few of his traits that stuck out to us.
      We had offers on the house within a week and had a contract in 10 days. That speaks for itself.
      If we ever decide to buy or sell another house, he will be the first person we call.
      Thank you Scott and Claire for everything you have done for us. You guys rock.

    We can’t say enough good things about Scott! He helped us with the sale of our townhouse and purchase of a new home in McLean! He and his team have been awesome, very responsive, knowledgeable, and easy to deal with throughout both transactions!
      In the past several years we have had three other property transactions and always felt like the real estate agent did not add much value to the transaction. Scott, however, added immeasurable value; I honestly don’t think either transaction could have closed without him. Moreover, his negotiation abilities are unmatched. Our townhouse sold for more than any prior one (that we know of) on our street. With regards to the new house we purchased, Scott negotiated us a better deal than we ever imagined. We could not be happier and highly recommend him to everyone!

    Scott supported me in three different transactions and proven to be trustworthy and easy to work with. He has demonstrated to me certain level of integrity and commitment that lacks within the real state industry. Scott is creative, smart, and relentlessly worked hard thus dedicated great deal of time to successfully sell my home. Scott and his professional Team members at Keller Williams earned my trust and along the years proven to be successful in closing any real state deal. Scott is a good manager and treats people with respect. I certainly appreciated his honesty and work ethics. I depend on Scott to provide me with insight and support in dealing in any real state transaction. He is certainly built a good reputation within his field and maintains good relationship amongst his peers.

    Scott was very responsive and kept us apprised of what was going on at all stages of the process. We worked with him over a period of months before the house was listed (including through some difficult times for our family), and he was unfailingly patient with our situation. He was also very helpful in advising us concerning what to do to maximize our house's marketability. -Jay Kraemer
