"Scott always acted in our best interests and saved us a lot of money on our home purchase! I'd recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell real estate!"

"Scott is the consummate professional. Not only did he take his time with us over the course of several months, but he knew exactly what we were looking for. This was underscored by his ability to find us an off MLS deal in a building that we loved. He was not only able to get us in the door to make an offer, but he stayed with us throughout the entire closing process. He is truly one of a kind in this industry."

"I have successfully bought two homes in Chicago with Scott. He is a fantastic ally to have in your corner throughout the entire process. Scott is very knowledgeable and has a data analytics approach that makes you confident you are making the right decisions. Scott's market knowledge and his experience are very broad and he owns and rents several of his own investment properties so is great at understanding ROI if you are looking at an investment property. He will give you honest and straightforward feedback, is quick to respond to any questions and definitely will go to bat for you during the negotiation process. After using him twice over the past five years we consider him a friend and call on him anytime we need professional real estate advice."

"Working with Scott to tell our home was an excellent experience! Scott was extremely knowledgeable and responsive throughout the process. He communicated to us our options and made it a stress-free selling experience."

"I don't think we could have gone through the purchase of our condo without the help we received from Scott. He was consistently available to listen to and answer any questions we had. If he wasn't sure, it made sure to get the answer and let us know. He always had our best interests in mind, and fought hard to get us the best deal on our condo. He also was a very patient professional in dealing with our numerous showings that we went through week in and week out. I will always recommend Scott to all my family and friends looking to purchase their next home." - Michael

About Scott
Scott loves Chicago and the suburbs, where he was born and now raises a family of his own. After graduating from the Indiana University Kelley School of Business, Scott found his lifelong interest in real estate had developed into a true passion. Since 2007 he has represented clients—ranging from first-time homebuyers to seasoned investors—for both residential and commercial properties.


Scott emphasizes a transparent process that keeps clients informed and involved through every step of the real estate journey. His corporate background yields a unique approach to real estate: the use of fact-based analytics alongside an empathic understanding of clients’ needs. Scott values the satisfaction of his clients above all else, so he works to get the best value possible.


Outside of real estate and a successful corporate career, Scott volunteers as a champion of the differently abled. Scott’s oldest daughter, Maya, was born with Williams Syndrome, a genetic condition characterized by medical problems including cardiovascular disease, developmental delays, and learning challenges, often occurring alongside striking verbal abilities, highly social personalities, and an affinity for music. Scott became involved with the Williams Syndrome Association, where he serves as Vice President of the Board of Trustees.
