|We didn’t know Scott when we asked for his services to purchase a house but it was clear from our first meeting that he was our guy. His professionalism and deep knowledge of the area stood out immediately. We also had a strong feeling Scott had our best interests at heart and it gave us a great sense of comfort. It was not easy to find our dream home and it turned out to be a long, long search. What we really appreciated from Scott was we never felt pressured throughout this whole process and he was sooooo generous of his time. He really made this experience go smoothly and in the end we couldn’t be happier with the house we found. You won’t find a better agent. Thanks Scott!!!
|We were lucky to have Scott working with us when we moved to the US from the UK. We decided to work with Scott after meeting him at an open house in Westfield NJ. His knowledge of the area and the process differentiated him from the rest as well as his willingness to go the extra mile for our family. I would heartily recommend Scott to those looking for properties in the Westfield area.
|We had good fortune to have Scott as our Realtor buying a great house in Westfield. After searching in Princeton, Chatham, & Short Hills we didn't see any one fit our taste, requirement and budget. So we tried Westfield, and we saw only one house. Scott was the listing agent and he presented his work very nicely. Scott made the process go very smoothly. He is very professional, and knowledgeable. Even my 12 year old son liked the way he does his business. You can ask any question about house. He has all resources to help you. He is kind to give help even after we moved in the house. Scott is the one who knows the business and your objective and can get it worked out. We didn’t know him before, now he is our friend after we bought the house. We'll ask his help again about real estate business in the future.
|Scott breaks the mold of the "typical real estate agent". He consistently lives up to the highest standards in every dimension a client longs for: integrity- professionalism- extensive experience- knowledge and expertise- intelligence- attentiveness- respect and courtesy- network of contacts throughout related fields such as home repair and improvement- humor- positive attitude- emotional supportiveness- financial acumen. Best of all he treats every client as a unique individual with their own unique needs and has the resources and expertise to respond accordingly. He markets the 1954 Cape Cod with the same dedication and energy with which he markets the 1988 4 BR front hall Colonial and the 2013 6 BR 4000 sf mansion with the entrance hall chandelier. Real estate business is a magnet for charlatans, incompetents, dabblers, fly-by-nights and newbies. I’m old, cranky, have high standards, and have a generally low opinion of most so-called professionals in most fields these days. My advice is: Don’t waste your time with the Really Nice Gal who is the niece of your neighbor’s hairdresser. Scott is a solid competent experienced professional who will never leave you thinking around 1:00 a.m., , “jeez, maybe I should have gone with….” Sleep soundly, Scott has your back.
|Warning! if you are thinking of picking Scott Gleason as your realtor there are a few things that you should be aware of: * He will probably sell your property in less time and get you more than what you would get with other realtors, giving you the added problem of finding a good use for the extra money in your pocket * The passion that he has for his work might be contagious, and you might end up actually enjoying what could otherwise be a difficult process, like the sale of your home * In fact you might end up thinking that selling your home is a pleasant, easy and profitable business * No matter how big your social network is, you will feel dwarfed by Scott's! He knows everyone in town, and has easy access to professionals who can assist you at every step of the way * It won't be easy to get rid of him as he will stick with you well after the sale is closed, to assist you with the aftermath, and to make sure that every piece falls in the right place Less
|Picking Scott Gleason as our realtor for the sale of our old Victorian home in Westfield was probably the wisest thing that we did in the entire 21 years that we owned the property. He not only developed a top notch strategic plan encompassing timing, location, value and market variables, he also provided us with tactical help on an ongoing basis. Through his team he made sure that our home was in tip top condition and was represented in the most efficient manner, and best possible way both to realtors and potential buyers. There is no doubt in my mind that his work, relentless and always focused, was worth more than his commission. The added beauty of all this is that the tens of thousands that we got above what his competitors had suggested that we should ask for our home, paid for his part of the commission. The combination of his knowledge of the market, both on the buyer's and on the seller's side, together with his personal qualities, make Scott the best realtor around if you are looking for reliability, timeliness, and overall great performance
|We selected Scott to be our selling agent after the success he had with selling our neighbor's home a few months prior. Scott prepared a strong marketing plan and set us up with a great designer to help with preparing the property for sale. We had an offer (which we accepted) in less than 3 weeks on the market Throughout the process, Scott was supportive and always available by phone and quick to respond to emails. I highly recommend Scott.
|Scott Gleason was a wonderful agent to work with. My family and I were relocating from the West Coast, and it was difficult to plan times to come out and view towns and homes. Scott was always very flexible and dedicated to our search, even working on leads while we were apart. He has vast local knowledge, which served us well as newcomers to the area. He also answered each of our questions (schools, neighborhoods, taxes, etc.) with the utmost expertise, and backed it up with research and data. He has a network of skilled contacts to assist in the whole process (lawyers, inspectors, HVAC experts...). These were all merely suggestions, but we took each one and were very pleased. What more can I say... our family is still in regular contact with Scott, and I would highly recommend him to anyone.
|Scott Gleason of RE/MAX Properties New Jersey is one of the best real estate agents ever, both for buying and selling. Reasons for which my wife and I came to this conclusion include, 1. About a decade ago Scott Gleason did us a favor with nothing foreseeable in it for him. It impressed us. Consequently, we recently hired him as our real estate agent to sell our home. 2. He knows his business. This includes (a) his recommendations to increase the likelihood of a fast sale and get a large return on suggested home improvements not only made sense, but they worked, (b) he recommended additional ways to make the house more attractive to the buyer, and (c) he is innovative and did things to get the interest of other real estate agents and correctly price our home. 3. Scott has much passion and enthusiasm for his work. He also likes people and he likes helping them. Consequently, it was a pleasure working with him and having him on our team. 4. We moved across the country within a few days of the house going on the market. Scott cheerfully did everything from turning off the lights to hiring persons to make needed repairs following the inspection. 5. He strives to make the contract a win-win proposition, that is, it is good for both the buyer and seller. In our case, without going into detail, he clearly went the extra mile to smooth out hurdles and concerns for both us and the buyers. In the end, we felt good about the contract. I suspect the buyers feel the same way.
|By the time we met you, we were tired of hearing that our house was “special” (not selling). You offered us your own special, out-of-the-box marketing effort that produced multiple offers. But the buyers were “special”, too, so it really got interesting through the negotiations to closing. Your indefatigable sheparding brought the deal to a favorable conclusion. Your efforts made it work out.
|Over the last 5 years I have bought and sold many investment properties with Scott’s help. I’m a 14-time repeat customer! He helped me buy low, rent profitably and sell high. It helped me retire very young and comfortably in the Caribbean, where I am today. Having him on my side 14 times made the whole process a breeze. Scott earns his money the old fashioned way.
|Jay Keating and Mary Keating VanDoren
|We wanted our mom to get the very most possible for her home. We needed it done in the dead of winter. We wanted the house sold “as is”, knowing it needed plenty of work. We know you worked around the clock to get it sold, but you made it all look and feel easy. Your staging “secrets” were right on. Your marketing was lightening quick, and you negotiated for us with passion and imagination. Getting a “retail” buyer at a super price was a great service to our mom, and to Oak Hills.
|Al and Tony
|You helped us navigate a choppy market and very arduous negotiation, all leading to a happy ending for builders and buyers.
|We now see how you make the claims you do – you deliver! We were so impressed with the job you did for the Borights, we got your number to fill a tall order. All we asked was a record-breaking price in a major hurry, to proceed with our relocation. Your advice on pricing, management of multiple offers and your relentless attention to wrapping it all up after we chose a buyers, made our move work out.
|We sure do appreciate all the work you did in both selling our home (in 3 days) and finding us a house we happily call home today. It’s been a year and a half since we moved into our new house and we have finally settled in! As you forecasted, we are growing into the house and we are happy we stretched a little to get the bigger floor plan. If you ever have people who want to speak to satisfied customers, tell them to call us.
|You continue to impress us with your fun and innovative methods to selling homes. We didn’t hesitate to hire you to sell our home and we never hesitate to recommend you to to anyone in “Real Estate Need”. Please know that all your efforts to sell our home (and there were many), you were the one who got the job done! We look forward to future transactions with you.
|Bob Foxx, Fox and Foxx Development
|We like Scott as our go-to guy for aggressive marketing, insightful pricing, and that he delivers on his word. We also refer him to friends and buyers of our new construction with total confidence that he will get their homes sold.
|You saw a way to get almost double what the appraiser said my land was worth and you got it! Your creative packaging and expert deal making made my sale so much more lucrative – I look forward to calling you soon to give me the same edge when I buy.
|Thank you for helping me realize my dream. When my house didn’t sell for 6 months with the first agent, you came along and said you had an actual strategy – and it worked. My house went on the market on a Monday, and I was signing papers that Thursday! You led me every step of the way, and even making sure I had a place to live before I had to move out. I am so very happy. Thanks, you are a Realtor with a heart!
|We broke the community price record by a healthy margin, and I attribute it to your enthusiastic preparation (even decorating) my unit, followed up by your firm and flexible negotiating with the buyers. I appreciate that you were always true to my best interests. Bravo!
|Mike Delton Rodgers
|Scott is THE person to go to when you are selling your home. Before I had Scott, my property sat on the market for 6 months with another realtor. I brought in Scott and we spent a few weeks getting the house ready. I listened to ALL of his recommendations and he took care of virtually everything for me as I was living outside of the area. The house hit the market and I had a buyer in less than a week. I recommend Scott to anyone selling a home. He does his research, puts in the time, he gets things ready and then makes it happen. I bumped into another one of Scott's clients who said, "we started with a real estate broker and ended with a friend." Thank you Scott!
|We were looking for tenants for an apt. in Westfield, NJ. My husband found Scott as a walk-in in the local ReMax office, after getting disappointed by the treatment he had gotten at Weichart. He was impressed with Scott's positive attitude, professionalism, and knowledge of the market. He took the time to come and look at the apt in much detail, offer great insights on staging and setting our expectations right. After we found prospective tenants, Scott was very helpful in leading us through the process. We had some bottlenecks that he resolved for us expeditiously. He was always attentive and did not rush us. He helped us find great tenants! Also, his help did not stop with the signing of the contracts. He continued to be a great resource later on with useful updates and with excellent repairman contacts. We readily refer him to anyone from our friends looking for a reliable, courteous and experienced realtor.
|Bruce and Penny Fine
|Scott Gleason recently helped us sell our house in Westfield. Scott is everything you would want in an agent. Knowledgable, thorough, hard working and professional. And he always gets back to us promptly. Scott also helps to take the stress out of the whole process with his good humor. I would not hesitate in recommending Scott.
|My husband and I are first time home buyers and therefore fairly uneducated in the world of real estate. I made a call to a local real estate office to speak with someone who knew the area and I was lucky enough to be connected with Scott. He has been extremely helpful and attentive through this entire process and has guided us through buying our first home seamlessly. He offered solid advice when asked and we never felt pressured to do more than we could. Not only did Scott get us the home that we loved, but was nice enough to invite us to his family party the following weekend! I would recommend Scott for anyone looking to buy or sell their property, especially first timers like my husband and I.
|After interviewing several Real Estate brokers I selected Scott Gleason to handle my home sale in April of 2014. Scott impressed me with his thorough presentation and his track record. Due to an accident I had to postpone the sale for over 8 months. During that time Scott kept in touch, and abreast of the market conditions Once we got back on track Scott forged ahead and guided me through the sales process. Within days of listing we had several offers to review. Scott reviewed all the offers in detail, explained the plusses and minuses of each and helped me select the best offer for me. We were in contract in a day, and hope to close within a month. Scott delivered what he promised – attention to detail, strong marketing, and good advice. I highly recommend him . Great Job Scott!
|We bought bought new house and sold our old house with Scott and I couldn't be happier. His negotiation practices saved us upwards of $60K between the two homes, and his contacts throughout the process were impeccable (staging, attorney, inspections, etc). We not only got into our dream home (under budget), but he treated us like family. A stand-up professional and friend.
|We couldn’t have made all of the difficult decisions involved in selling our home and purchasing our new home without Scott Gleason. We had met Scott 1 year prior to making the decision to sell our home when we were first thinking about moving or putting on a 3rd addition. Scott knew about our dilemma, however we couldn’t find a new home that met our criteria to move. We were all ready to choose a contractor for our addition when we got a call from Scott saying that he thought he found the perfect home for our family of 5. He was right! We started the process of putting our house on the market and Scott knew exactly what to do to make it sell and he did so in 5 days. Scott has been a facilitator, friend, and voice of reason throughout this process of selling and buying a home and we couldn’t have done it without him. We are so happy in our new home and would have never found it without Scott’s perseverance and knowledge of the Westfield real estate market.
|Bob & Steve
|We consider Scott a go-to guy for finding us diamonds in the rough on the buy side, then for insightful pricing, thoughtful marketing, and delivering on his word. We also refer him to friends and buyers of our new homes, with total confidence he will get their homes sold.
|Liz and Dave Doles
|With your tutelage we bought well and sold in a snap. You made the whole ‘trading up’ process a pleasure, and we will always be thankful for that.
|Charlie & Mary Bowman
|"Wow, Scott! You played the market perfectly to our benefit. Super price, timely closing, and all the supporting players you recommended were top notch. Plus as you promised, we enjoyed a few laughs along the way."
