I can't recommend Scott highly enough. Honestly. Not only is he intimately familiar with the area, having grown up there, which is a huge help. But more importantly the way in which he uses that experience and his relationships to make sure you have a highly productive and enjoyable experience is where he stands out. For example, he is very aware of what is "his" job vs. yours. He clearly points out that stuff like the location, price, history, etc are all something he is comfortable commenting on. But preference is somethign he stays clearly away from, and tells you so. Another aspect is his responsiveness. Wow, whether its Sunday night or July 4th, he is available and responsive, and when you say "thanks so much" he just says "that's my job". Impressive. Finally, he uses his extensive relationships and network but in a very honest way - when we'd ask him for a recommendation for a lawyer or whatever, he'd be very direct about his experience working with them, but always professional and would never stray into recommending them too strongly, or misrepresent his relationship with them, or whatever. I will never use another realtor in the CT area, as long as Scott is in the business.
