Scott is the definition of expertise & professionalism. After working with a previous realtor who was unable to sell our home, Scott exhibited several outstanding qualities that allowed us to put our full trust in him. 1. Customer Service: He did an exceptional job communicating with us throughout the entire process. Whether we called, emailed or texted him, he would respond promptly with an answer and if he didn’t have an answer, he would always get back to us quickly with one 2. Selling & Buying Process Expertise: Scott has a vast understanding of both. He is knowledgeable about the market, a competent negotiator, a clear communicator, thoroughly reviews all contracts and often discovered numerous mistakes that could have really hurt us. 3. Dedicated & Genuinely Cares : There was never a time when we felt we were being shrugged off for another client or that we weren’t Scotts first priority. He went out of his way to make sure anytime we had a showing we had adequate notice to get our house ready. Also holding open houses and individual showings on Saturdays ensuring our lives were disrupted as little as possible. Scott did an outstanding job handling the sale of our home. He worked diligently to find us the perfect lot to build a new home on and found us a new home to live in while we get ready to plan our new build on our lot. It’s evident why Scott is so well respected and connected in the industry. I highly recommend Scott to anyone selling a home, buying a home and/or looking for property to build a new home on. Scott is truly the best realtor in Utah and we consider him a trusted friend.

Scott helped our family sell a home as well as buy a home and a building lot. Scott is extremely knowledgeable in all aspects that a realtor should be. He always made himself available to take us through homes on short notice 7 days a week. He answered all phone calls and text immediately or within an hour of leaving messages. Our experience with Scott made the entire buying and selling process which can be highly stressful as He was able to sell our home within 3 months where previous real estate agents were unsuccessful. We not only consider him a great business associate we also consider him a great friend and will use him with any and all future real estate needs.

Scott Simpson’s genuine personality and good listening skills were main reasons we selected him as our listing agent. He provided expertise in valuing our home and defining its selling points. Scott’s personality promotes positive interactions with other realtors and buyers. As a result, he sold our home for more than our target amount. Scott skillfully used the resources of his brokerage firm (Sotheby’s) to create professional sales and marketing media, including stunning photo and on-line presence across multiple web sites. He also used targeted advertising in the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, and multiple on-line listing services. Scott is a dynamic and high energy agent that gets things done. He held several successful open houses and individual walk-throughs. His cordial relationships with other realtors allowed him to track interest from potential buyers. His negotiation skills resulted a full price offer after which we sailed smoothly through the closing process. Scott diligently tracked actions of the Title Company to ensure funds were dispersed. Lastly, he ensured a smooth transition of the property to the new owners. We highly recommend Scott Simson as your agent.

We were in the market to sell a rental house and we needed someone who could handle the transaction in a professional manner and who understood the intricacies of investment property sales. Scott made the process easy and seamless and I would highly recommend his services.

Scott was a pleasure to work with! He is very organized and not at all pushy. He is honest in his dealings and he could not have made the experience of selling and purchasing more pleasant.

My wife & I had a refreshing experience dealing with Scott during the process of buying our dream home and selling our old home. We have had bad experiences with real estate agents in the past & dealing with Scott was a breath of fresh air! He always promptly responded to our phone calls, e-mails, & texts if we needed something. He listened to what we wanted when he found us our dream home & followed through with every aspect of the process with great attention to detail. When we had inspection findings on both our old & new home he put us in touch with professional contractors to address the issues. I highly recommend to anyone who is looking for a home or trying to sell one to call Scott. He will take excellent care of you throughout the entire process!

My wife, Nancy, and I really enjoyed working with Scott to find our home in Sandy. We met at an open house Scott was showing. It turned out that listing wasn’t for us and we asked about other houses. We told Scott what we were looking for and an approximate price range. He emailed us 3 different areas and the hunt was on. We had moved from California, and that’s where Scott’s knowledge about the areas we were interested in really helped. Scott was always responsive to calls and emails and was always keeping the process moving forward. Scott’s rapport with the seller’s agent was instrumental with getting quick access to the property and getting questions answered in a timely manner. I believe anyone wanting to acquire a home or property would have as wonderful an experience as we did with Scott. It was a truly a pleasurable experience.

In a world that is quick to complain and slow to compliment I feel compelled to write you this email and express how pleased I was with the services of Scott and Thomas at Sotheby’s that you referred to me. After months of frustration trying to sell my home, I meet with Scott and Thomas on Wednesday, still and drone pictures were taken on Thursday, the home listed on Friday, sold on Saturday then closed two weeks latter. It was also a pleasure to close on the house at your location this week. Thanks for all your help.
