    As a first time home buyer it is absolutely great to work with Scott. He helps me get the mortgage in a very low rate and give you useful suggestions in terms of location and choosing where to buy my condo.

    Wonderful experience buying my home with Scott as my agent! He is very knowledgable, knew the Bay Area very well, learned me, my taste, my need for cleanliness and location. He was honest, attentive, and smart. He worked to help me find the place of my dreams and within my budget! Very appreciative that I found him.

    Scott is the best. We had awesome experience working with Scott and we got a best deal with the help of Scoot in term of what we want and we dream. We spend almost 8 months working with Scott to find our dream house. He had plenty of knowledge about neighborhood and property related questions. The best thing that we love about Scott is friendly nature. Our kids (5 years old son and 3 years old daughter) became friend of Scott and they also have awesome time with Scott when we went for looking for houses with Scott. We saw more than 40 houses in 8 months with Scott and he never and ever pushy for single house, not tired and other related sign on his face. He has very clam and gentle personality. One of the best person in this area to go with and buy the house.

    Scott has been working with us for 9 months till we found our second home. Professional advice, passionate work attitude, fast response inquires, dedication in work,and excellent patience are all the words I can think of working with him for the past months. We are very happy and definitely would like to work with him again in the future. I highly recommend Scott to anyone who is looking for a reliable sales agent like him.

    I've been working with Scott for many years... Over 10 years ago, he helped me sell my first 1 bedroom condo in Emeryville. He then helped me sell my house in Lafayette in 2014, buy our new home in San Mateo in 2018. More than that, he also lesased out our San Francisco property. Scott is organized, professional, savvy, and is a skilled Realtor. He has the resources to effectively facilitate buying, selling, renovating, leasing processes and has the years of experience to have a truly well rounded ability to personalizing a strategy and execution. As a seller's agent, he's superb at figuring out the best way to market your properrty based on the actual profiles of your property, and as a buyer's agent, he goes above and beyond to guide and support all aspects of the roller coaster ride that goes along with the process. He is extremely patient, and he asks the right questions to help his customers make all the right decisions for themselves and not Scott. He's one of the most ethical Realtors I know who really looks out for YOUR best interest.

    We're so grateful we were referred to Scott as our real estate agent. We really valued Scott's candor and patience throughout the whole home buying process, especially as he guided us in weighing the pros and cons of each of the homes we visited with superb attention to details. He is quick and thorough with his responses, which is especially critical in this competitive fast housing market. I also sincerely appreciated his suggestions on product purchases/house modifications and how one would go about fixing something if needed. Thank you Scott for going above and beyond.

    I don't have enough words to thank Scott for everything he did in finding us our home. He not only went out of his way on several occasions to meet us for walk-throughs, he arranged meetings with selling agents, gave us valuable advice, and worked tirelessly to put together the best offer when we found the house we really wanted. When we had questions, Scott was always available to give us informative and honest answers. When we needed to rearrange our schedules, Scott accommodated us quickly and easily. Now that we are in our new home, I wake up every day extremely grateful for Scott and all the hard work he put in before, during, and after our search. We will definitely turn to Scott again for our housing needs but thankfully that won't be for quite some time because our house is perfect and we plan on being in it for years to come!

    Scott did a wonderful job beating out 13 other offers and landing our dream home (without overpaying). We had a very specific goal in mind and could not afford to lose out on the home we ending up buying. Scott was dedicated and professional throughout the process and we will be referring him to our friends and family.

    Scott has very good knowledge of the Bay Area market & the whole procedure of the real estate transactions. His immense experience & skills demonstrated in his perfect professionalism have definitely helped us in this complicated business transactions. Very grateful to have had him as the designated agent for this purchase. He will make it looks easy & simple for anyone. Also, Scott has built very good connections with related parties which relationship certainly contributes to resolve bottlenecks or difficult issues encountered during this knotty, less than obvious real estate transaction .

    Andrew gave Scott 5 stars out of 5
    I was probably not an ideal client to work with. I'd spend several weekends in a row being shown multiple houses by Scott. Invariably, I'd not like any of them (being picky and unrealistic) and then not contact Scott again for months. He'd always graciously pick up where we'd left off, and ferry me to a new batch of homes. Scott's knowledge of every market we looked at, basically the entire East Bay, from Crockett to San Jose, was profound. He could accurately predict what a house was going to sell for, irrespective of it's listed price. He knew the strong and weak points of even the most obscure neighborhoods. Scott knew I was moving in order to reduce my commute. Perhaps most important, he knew what commute traffic was going to be like. Scott ended up finding me a lovely home, with no problems, in a quiet neighborhood. I've shaved fifty miles, and more than an hour, off my commute. Best of all, I got the house for a price I can afford. Thank you, Scott! -A

    Scott is a standout! He went above and beyond to help us buy a gorgeous home in San Francisco. We did this while living in another state, so there was much more to it than just helping us find a house. From picking us up at the airport numerous times to educating us on the competitive and complex SF market, Scott was a consummate professional. He was extremely prompt in responding to our many questions and was well liked by his fellow realtors. We highly recommend Scott as a realtor and will use him again should the need arise.

    Scott is so far the best realtor we have known! He made our last home selling transaction seamless and headache free. I really appreciate that Scott provided updates almost on a daily basis, even late at night sometimes. He is also knowledgeable and always provides the relevant feedback or suggestions timely. We feel very comfortable working with him and would recommend him for sure!

    My experience with Scott could not have been better. He took care of everything, including timing, pricing, two open-house showings, and closing the sale at an excellent price. He made recommendations to the buyer which expedited his loan and escrow arrangements and even watered my plants for me. He also stayed in touch with me throughout the process which I really appreciated. I would recommend Scott without reservations.

    Scott found our dream home, and stayed on top of the whole escrow process to ensure the title company, and our lender didn't drop the ball. We would not be in our new home without his attention to detail and the thorough research he exercised on our new community. My wife and I instantly knew we were is good hands as soon as he drafted a community research report on the areas we were initially interested in. His efforts helped us narrow down our search and once we did that, he found us our dream home.

    Susan gave Scott 5 stars out of 5
    Scott is an amazing agent. We found a house that was truly perfect for us, but we thought it would be out of reach for us. Scott took time out of his life on a busy Saturday night during his daughter's dance recital to negotiate a contract with the sellers for us before the open house the next day. We knew we could not compete with Sunday's competition and bidding war frenzy. In this market all cash/no contingency is what we had been seeing everywhere.. Twenty-four hours went by, and still nothing. I was stressed, but ready to move on Scott, with his usual calm demeanor said to me, "Just be patient, and I will get you this house." I trusted him and began to relax at that point. The end result -- He got us that house!! Even in this market, and even though we were not the highest offer, and even though we were not waiving all contingencies, nor paying all cash -- as was some of our competition! In short, Scott Fugelseth rocks! I have already recommended him to friends. Susan C

    My wife and I are relocating from Texas to the San Francisco Bay area where our oldest son, his wife and our grandchild live. As you know, prices in that market are increasing and the inventory is still rather low. Scott quietly, professionally and with exceptional stamina guided us through the maze of purchasing a home. To compound matters, we wanted FHA financing which brought another level of complexity to the transaction. He stayed with us every step of the way, providing invaluable information about properties, appraisals, inspections, neighborhoods and negotiation strategies. It was a joy to trust our real estate agent and realize he had our best interests at heart. Most importantly, there was a time when we had nearly given up hope of ever acquiring a home there. Scott encouraged us to stay the course and increased his efforts to assist us. Since I am writing this review, the reader knows that the perseverance, patience and tenacity paid off. The rating system reflects a maximum of 5 stars. If possible, we sincerely award Scott 10 stars. Please call upon him for your real estate needs. You will not be disappointed.

    Scott did a great job. Steered me away from a house that I was (wrongly) interested in and made sure that when we found the right house that we got it and that there were no surprises anywhere along the way. If I'd known this home buying lark was so easy I would have done it years ago.

We had some hiccups with the seller to say the least and Scott was there to guide us an inform us every step of the way, while always making sure we always came first. Scott is not your typical real estate agent, he is much better! He is honest, straightforward, quick, calm and cool. Thanks to Scott and Zip!

    Scott was fantastic! He was always prepared to show us prospective properties, even in some ridiculously bad weather, and provided great insight during the walkthroughs. He was extremely responsive and promptly answered all our late evening emails and phone calls. He was quick to point out the potential money pits and provided shrewd advice when it came to making an offer on the property we ended up purchasing. We also selected our mortgage officer through one of his referrals and the whole transaction went very quickly and smoothly. In sum, Scott was terrific to work with and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him. His great demeanor, professionalism, and responsiveness were all very much appreciated during our home buying process.

    Scott was a pleasure to work with. Always proactive - with a relaxed, thoughtful and informative approach - he was a strong advocate for us throughout the journey of buying our first house. He listened well, intuitively understood our priorities and preferences and worked closely with us to smoothly navigate us through each step. His insights into the bidding and contingency process, careful observations about the properties we considered, and accommodating approach were invaluable to us and a key factor in crucial decisions that led to a very successful outcome for us. His recommendations for input from others who assisted us (financing education, house inspection, etc) were excellent. Finally, he's a great guy...and has a dry sense of humor that always made us smile, no matter what the situation. Highly recommended!

    Scott was an excellent person to work with; explained all issues concerning SF real estate (condo and TIC issues in particular), plus many other peripheral aspects of buying in SF. He is quite the opposite of some agents I have encountered - pushy and assertive, who tell you what you want rather than listening to you ... and listening, being prompt in answering e-mails, in forwarding information - Scott did all of this in an exemplary manner. He does his job very well indeed.

    Scott had his honeymoon at time of closing. after the close, and presumably after the honeymoon, we never heard a word from him. We did talk and had walk through with the selling agent. he was very nice. But Scott never called or emailed. now maybe he is still out of the office, but if he is back, the absence of contact is not at all a good PR move. Yes we have finished buying the house, Maybe we would rec him to a friend or call him back if we want to buy again

    Scott was very pleasant and comfortable to deal with. He was no pressure but always supportive and informative. He kept us informed of homes meeting the specifications we gave him. The search for the right house went on for months because we were very picky. He never tried to rush us. When we finally decided to make an offer he coached us but didn't try to sell us. He pointed out the bad with the good. He also helped us to understand the very strange culture of the San Francisco real estate world. We have purchased several homes in the Sacramento and Lake Tahoe regions over the years and have never experienced anything like SF. I became frustrated several times with the process and Scott would bring me back to an even keel. I think you should consider him a real asset.
