Ken Scott represented me in a recent new home purchase. He is one of the most kind, professional, and experienced real estate agent. He was available, flexible and attentive throughout the home viewing process, escrow, and even after the close of escrow. From the first time (six months ago) I met him I felt very comfortable and enjoyed working with him. He was the most patient man I've ever met. I would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone who asked!!!

Without a doubt, Ken Scott is the reason we own our very sweet investment property. He worked quickly to submit our offer, which was accepted above the other offers. He assisted us with the difficulties of securing our loan. He was diligent and tenacious through the many twists and turns of dealing with all involved. At one point, when we were ready to give up, he swooped in and rescued our property from the pit of lost deals. We could not be happier and will recommend him to everyone we know. Thank you Ken!

Hello, I would like to say a few words about Ken Scott. I needed to sell my condominium and contacted Ken to handle the sale. I am not an expert in real estate and Ken made sure I understood what was involved. He is what I would call a straight shooter. No, fancy sales talk. Regardless, he does the job and got me through the process far better than I could ever expect (successfully). I needed a few things done to my condominium to get it up to speed for a sale and he also put me in touch with someone who did the entire "rehab" very reasonably and again with straight talk. I believe this is why Ken is successful at his job, straight talk and on the spot professionalism. One gets the feeling they're in good hands and dealing with a friend. I sincerely consider Ken my go to guy with regards to real estate in the Reno area. Less ... More

Ken was terrific. Told me he would get me multiple offers, used electronic media, and had two offers within a week and sold the house for my asking price. He worked through inspection issues, and used electronic communication, which made selling a rental property from far away, painless. Everything went extremely well. I strongly recommend Ken.

Ken's work was fantastic; everything from the awesome pictures he took of the house we were selling, to his knowledge of the area, streamlining the sales process and being patient when the buyer's financing had hiccups. I would and have MOST DEFINITELY recommend him to anyone we know that is buying/selling a property.

You won't find better than Ken Scott! Ken is knowledgeable, personal and professional. He helped us find the home we love 7 years ago, then recently assisted us with the sale of my Mom's house after she passed away. Ken gave us tips on how to best prepare the house for showing, went to work immediately to get it listed, and by the second day we had the perfect offer! Buying or selling a home is a huge and very personal endeavor. Ken gets that and will do everything he can to make the process go as smoothly as possible. Again, if you need assistance with real estate in the Reno area, you will not find a better agent than Ken Scott. Less ... More

Ken exceeded my expectations by providing excellent service all the way around! He was very patient with my questions and indecisiveness. He was always available to show me houses on my schedule and always answered my calls and texts no matter what time of day, or night. Ken is very friendly and easy - going. While looking at homes, he was never pushy and never stood over our shoulder. He let us take our time for everything. I also admired that he advised us when certain homes weren't a good purchase and how we should negotiate. He is very genuine in ensuring you are making the correct purchase and is very knowledgeable and diligent in the field. I 100% recommend Ken to anyone. I will use him again when I'm ready to sell my home and make my next purchase. Less ... More

Great service from start to finish and beyond. Ken is still helping us out with contractor and other contacts more than a year after closing. Helpful, friendly, knowledgeable realtor dedicated to providing true customer service. Thanks again Ken for helping us find a house so quickly and making the whole process so simple and easy.

My husband and I were desperate after being denied viewing a home by our realtor at the time. I found Ken on this website; called him and he accommodated us the very same day. We negotiated the purchase of our home the following day. He coordinated with the listing agent and processed our sale within 3 weeks. He is definitely a professional in all the areas listed above. He made us feel comfortable and met more than our expectations as realtor. I will recommend him to everyone I know or meet. Thanks Ken! Less ... More

Ken was excellent, we were planning to move to Reno and knew the areas we wanted to look at and he had a list for us almost immediately. He always quickly responded to our questions no matter how trivial, with very helpful advice. With us not living in Reno he set up showings on short notice whenever we came to town. He also kept us informed of any new listings that met our wish list came on the market and arranged showings as soon as we could make time for a trip to Reno. Once we found a house he was just as helpful getting us through the ordeal of a short sale. The patience he showed helped us through the short sale process. He has been just as much help after the sale was completed offering advice on handy men and experienced repairmen. He makes you feel like a friend rather than a client and we really appreciated that. We will gladly use Ken again if we buy another house in Reno and would recommend him to anyone moving to the area. Less ... More

Ken was recommended to me by a friend. I knew I wanted to live in Verdi but also knew that my selections were going to be limited because the location is a highly desired place to live with not so many choices, especially in my price range. Although Ken knew it may be challenging, he assured me that when houses came available, that fit my budget and preferences, he would let me know as soon as possible. Surprisingly a house did come for sale within a few weeks. The first time I looked at the place I was very skeptical, but Ken put no pressure on me and just let me take the time to make a decision. I knew either way, whether I chose to move forward or keep looking, he'd be supportive. Within a few days I called Ken to tell him I was interested and he immediately began the process of putting in an offer. The unfortunate circumstances that came along with buying this home was something that was out of Ken?s control, but his diligence, knowledge and genuine interest for my best interest made it possible for me to finally sign a dotted line (well, hundreds of signed dotted lines) that made my dreams of being a home owner in Verdi a reality. Ken has been in the business for a long time and one would assume that experience would justify Ken's ability to sell homes; however, I can tell anyone I recommend Ken to, that it is more than Ken?s experience that made this all possible. Like I noted before I believe that it is Ken's genuine interest for his client's that makes him successful. Ken has great working relationships with lenders, home improvement specialists, other Realtors and the list can go on, which should further any person confidence who is in the process of buying a home. Buying a home is a scary decision, but Ken put many fears at ease. I feel fortunate that my friend recommended Ken and further Ken recommending my mortgage lender, these two went above and beyond what would be expected of them. Less ... More

Ken is true professional in the real estate business. He is quick to respond and is very perceptive about what a buyer is looking for. He works hard and doesn't give up. Very familar with the local market and the entire process from showing the property to the closing. You feel better about spending 100's of thousands of dollars when the agent has instant answers and knowledge about all aspects of the property immediately. But above all, Ken is a nice guy which will help in anyway he can. Less ... More

This is the third home that we have bought and Ken is by far the best agent that we have dealt with. That said, we will definitely be using him again in the future. There were a lot of issues with us trying to purchase this house, but Ken helped us get through the finish line with patience, extreme professionalism and knowledge. Ken is a really nice guy and we always felt like he was looking out for our best interests.

After years of struggle trying to keep our "First Home" we finally knew we had to Short Sale. We reached out to Ken Scott as our Real Estate Agent. He led us through the process with kindness, understanding, and a great deal of compassion. I immensely appreciated the feedback, emails, texts, and phone calls that he gave us as we made our way through each step of the process. Dealing with the bank is a complicated and frustrating matter. Ken Scott has years of experience with short sales and his knowledge made the selling of our home as painless as possible. I trust Ken Scott and have full confidence that when we are ready to buy again, he will be the one for the job! Less ... More

If you're not using Ken, you have the wrong realtor. Ken is a long time resident of this area and knows it well and can immediately tell exactly what you're looking for and wont waste your time showing you properties you wont be interested. Excellent communication and attitude, and he's all about making his clients happy and comfortable.

We bought a house for our son in 2006. Ken did a great job finding the home and completing the process. In March 2013, our son had to move and we listed the house with Ken. It sold in five days above the list price. Great job Ken!

Ken is great! He always seemed to have time for us, and answered all of our questions without a lot of jargon. We started looking at houses in late October, and we were moved in to our short-sale by mid January. He is very knowledgeable about short-sales. He went the extra mile to contact the seller's agent repeatedly to convince her that our offer was a fair and to submit it to the bank. I truly think that persistence is the reason we have the house we really wanted and love. Ken was never pushy or high pressure, just went from house to house waiting for my wife to approve of one. When she did everything went really smooth all the way to the day we got our keys. I am so glad our friend referred him to us! Less ... More

I have had the pleasure to know and work with Ken Scott in both good and bad times. His intergity, knowledge, people skills and tech savy ways have enabled him to not just remain in the Real Estate game in Northern Nevada but to thrive! Ken has never steered us wrong when asked for RE advice. He is always prompt to respond and has never failed to make our family's needs seem important to him. When it comes to Northern Nv. Ken really is our "go to guy" ...over the last 15 to 18 years Ken has helped us to buy and sell a rather significant amount of Real Estate. I can't say enought good things about him. Less ... More

My wife and I decided to move to Reno from Gardnerville. Our son had been looking for a new home and Ken Scott was his agent. We called Ken and made an appointment to look at some homes. We told him the areas we were interested in and what we were looking for in a home. We met Ken and looked at five homes. After we looked at the last home, we spoke in detail with Ken about home #3. He answered our questions and we wrote the offer standing in home #5. He kept us informed as to what was happening with the offer and other forms we needed to sign. The offer was accepted as written. Ken then kept us informed as the title company did its work. When we moved into our new home, Ken was very heplful in recommending service companies. We would absolutely recommend Ken Scott to others. Less ... More

Ken helped me buy my home and he was amazing. Ken was always very kind and professional with me, even when I was a bit high maintenance. I was a first time home buyer and Ken walked me through every step and made the experience a great one. I highly recommend Ken to anyone who is buying or selling a home.
