Born on Chicago's north side and raised in Evanston, Scott has spent nearly his entire life in the Chicago area. He has a great understanding of the uniqueness that Chicago's neighborhoods and its suburbs have to offer. With a background in management and an accounting degree, Scott puts to use all of his skills in finding and negotiating the best deal for his buyers and sellers.
With over 20 years of real estate experience, Scott has been involved in over 600 transactions totaling over $300 Million in sales. Scott began his real estate career in 2001 working with a top producer on the North Shore before becoming a top producer on his own. Scott moved to @properties in March of 2008 to take advantage of the unparalleled marketing systems and dynamic energy that the company has to offer. In his first full year at @properties, along with once again being a Chicago Association of Realtors Top Producer, Scott was honored by @properties with the Outstanding Achievement Award for an Experienced New Comer.
He has earned many sales awards and distinctions since, including, most recently, leading the Scott Stavish Group to $35 Million in sales in 2020. Scott is consistently recognized as a Chicago Magazine Five Star Realtor and a Chicago Association of Realtors Top Producer. In 2019, Scott was honored as a Crain's Notable Residential Real Estate Broker.
Scott takes great pride in focusing on each client's individual needs and goals. Scott will take his time to explain the process to both buyers and sellers. He explains the benefits and risks of every decision made throughout; offering his knowledge, expertise and guidance without pushing any of his own biases.
"For most people, real estate is the most valuable asset that a person will own in his or her lifetime. It's important to have someone to advise you through the buying and/or selling process that you can both trust and has the experience to educate you every step of the way. To me, that's what real estate is about. I never push a property onto a buyer. I try to teach my clients as much as possible about real estate to allow each individual to come to the best decision for him or herself."
Previous to working in real estate, Scott was the Vice-President of Development for a local restaurant group. Being responsible for the hiring and training of all managers as well as the opening of new restaurants allowed Scott to craft and hone some valuable business tools. Negotiation, management, communication and training/education are all skills that have carried over well to the real estate industry in making Scott a highly successful agent.
Scott loves what he does because it allows him to combine all of his best business skills while forging personal relationships in working closely with people day in and day out. In his free time, Scott stays active playing soccer and riding his bike all around the city that he loves. Scott gives back to the community, giving to dozens of charities, while consistently being a Top 200 MS Fundraiser year after year. Scott is passionate about his Illini, Blackhawks, Bulls, Bears and White Sox. He enjoys all that Chicago has to offer--especially its music, restaurants, parks and biking the Lakefront whenever our Chicago weather allows.
