My wife and I are in the process of buying a home (we close this week) and have been using Scott Price as our agent. We’re brand new to the homebuying process and we found Scott through Yelp (we saw all the five star reviews and figured it was worth giving him a shot).
I’m not exaggerating when I say it’s one of the best decisions we’ve ever made. I called Scott on a Monday morning and gave him a few details about what we were looking for in a house. He came by our apartment that night and brought with him a sample contract and a list of all the homes in the areas we were interested in that had closed in the previous three months. He then spent two hours going through the contract with us, answering all our questions, and generally doing everything he could to make an overwhelming and scary process easier.
Throughout the search process, Scott was nothing but helpful and on top of things. He set up a custom search to email us daily listings that might fit our criteria, walked through open houses with us and helped educate us on things to look for (bolted foundation, copper plumbing, etc). He continually encouraged us to wait until we found something that we loved, and not to just settle because inventory is so low. Scott is there to help you buy a house that you really want, not to get you to buy something so he can get a commission.
When we were finally ready to put down an offer, he put together a clean, compelling offer quickly and advocated well enough for us that it was accepted against a number of competing offers. Throughout the escrow process, he’s been on top of things every step of the way and made sure we had everything done when it needed to be done.
Scott also knows great people. Every single person he’s recommended to us so far (inspectors, contractors, etc) is high quality and really seems to know what they’re doing. Owning a house is a lot of work – if something breaks, it’s your responsibility to fix it now. But we feel a lot more secure about the idea knowing that we can just call Scott and ask him for a handyman recommendation, or a plumber recommendation, and we’ll get someone who will do the job right.
We recommended him to a couple good friends of ours already, and will continue to do so to everyone we know who wants to buy a house. Especially if they’re a first time homebuyer. I can’t imagine finding a better real estate agent to work with.
