Selling homes to people from all over the United States, Scott notes that there is a particularly high interest from those who work in the South Bay or along the Peninsula. “Here in Santa Cruz our median price for single family homes is less than it is in the South Bay and especially on the Peninsula so buyers are strongly drawn to the community here,” he explained. Scott also points out that the beach lifestyle here attracts potential buyers searching for a home within reach of Silicon Valley’s job market.
His hard work on behalf of his customers has earned him a five-star review rating on Zillow.com where its users note that Scott is respectful, listens and communicates with customers well, and understands the real estate market in Santa Cruz.

Scott attributes this success and positive feedback to the strong personal relationships he establishes with both buyers and sellers. His priority is the communication with his clients and listening to the buyers’ and sellers’ expectations when working with a new or existing client.
His commitment to exceptional customer service is crucial in a time when there is so much information that buyers and sellers can gather on their own online. To navigate this competitive market, he works seven days a week, staying up to date on listings and searching for upcoming opportunities for buyers.
The nature of this profession could leave little time for outside interests or activities but Scott finds time to spend with his fiancé as well as with his parents who still live in the area. He loves taking walks on the beach, riding his bicycle, and running and hiking in Nisene Marks State Park. He is also a loyal San Francisco Giants and 49ers fan.
