"Scott helped my wife and I navigate a rather complicated transaction, he ensured we were comfortable throughout the whole process. You can tell he's been doing this for a long time, seen it all, and has a solution for everything. Definitely recommend him to first time home buyers like ourselves. He's got great lender and attorney connections as well. Whenever we sell we'll be asking him to handle it."


"Scott is great: smart, easygoing yet serious when necessary,, knowledgeable, super responsive, and ready with thoughtful, balanced advice without being pushy. Would recommend him to anyone."


"As usual, Scott provided excellent service and guidance through-out the process. I've used him multiple times before, which speaks for itself."


"Scott was fantastic throughout the process of buying my first home. He explained everything thoroughly, answered all my questions and made the entire process smooth. I appreciated that he took time to get to know me and my buying situation at the very start. I highly recommend Scott!"


"Excellent experience all around, Scott was truly committed and available at all times to answer our questions. He was both a broker and an advocate for us during the entire process."


"Scott was fantastic! He helped us at every turn and made us feel very comfortable. As first time home buyers, we couldn't have asked for a better agent to guide us on this journey!"


"Once again, Scott Stavish and his team made my home selling/buying experience a great one. I have used Scott for four or five home acquisitions and will continue to do so in the future. I always feel like I am his only client despite how swamped I know he is. He almost always answers his phone and when he doesn't he always returns my calls quickly. He always makes me feel like no question is a dumb one (and I know I've asked many dumb ones) and he has always displayed great patience with me. I don't consider myself to be an easy client but he makes me feel like one. Also, his knowledge of the Chicago market exceeds any other person I know and he is wise and humble enough to admit when he doesn't know the answer. He'll then take the time to find the answer and report back. Yeah, I am clearly a giant fan of Scott Stavish and feel lucky to have found a realtor I trust and enjoy working with."



"When I wanted to sell my condo and asked Scott for advice on timing, prep and listing price, he did a very thorough review and presentation of the market, comps and neighborhood. His timing was spot on as we listed at the perfect time and the sale happened in 2 weeks! And from there, he took care of every little detail until the closing. The paperwork process was so streamlined and efficient, and so much better than my previous 2 home sales. His professionalism and attention to detail is second to none. And his follow up and communication is top notch! He will be the only realtor I ever use for any future home purchases and I highly recommend him!"


"Scott is a true real estate professional, he goes above and beyond in every aspect of realtor services. The property he sold for me was a three unit building, so every showing had to be organized and notice given to three separate tenets. Scott and his team provided access to get repairs made provided assistance in evaluating repairs and saved, time and money throughout the entire process. I would absolutely recommend Scott Stavish and his team at at properties for any real estate sale or purchase."


"Working with Scott was flawless. I recently tried to sell my condo the year prior with a different agent with no avail. Within 1 week with Scott, I had multiple offers and closed above list price. End-to-end, Scott explained everything well, kept me updated throughout and most of all made the sale of my property stress free. Thanks Scott!"



"Scott was terrific. Patient, thoughtful and very competent. No pressure, but great presence."



"Scott was fantastic during the entire process. His knowledge about the North Shore combined with his diligence in researching every property we went to see made the process very easy on us. Additionally, Scott is one of the few agents I have worked with that really is focused on the client finding the "right" house and comfortable saying something is above market or correctly priced and avoiding any pressure to buy. Finally, the aspect of our search that best reflected Scott's "client-first" mentality was near the end when we hadn't found a place we wanted to purchase and he recommended renting for a year and helped us find an off-market house that has been fantastic for us while continuing to help our search for a long term house"

His advice to me helped me save thousands and thousands of dollars on the terms of my purchase agreement.

Lots to do, but we're excited!As we mentioned, we loved working with you through the whole process...from deciding if now was the right time to sell, to evaluating options and negotiating with both buyers and sellers. We really appreciate your expertise, patience, proactive attitude and accessibility, not to mention the emotional support! You were great.Lydia and Ottis"


"Scott has been a tremendous professional and invaluable resource to our family over the past several years. He's acted as our trusted agent in 6 real estate transactions and will absolutely get the call to do number 7. A difficult real estate market helped to separate the hobby agents from the professionals, and Scott stands on the top of the list. It would have been really easy to listen to "what we wanted to hear" about pricing from other agents. Scott took the time to understand our needs, devise an analytical approach, and helped us to understand the reality of the current market. At the end of the day, Scott's marketing strategy, sales process, and pricing strategy helped us to get a sale above our expectations. Thank you Scott! Keep doing great work"

While it took 10 months to complete, Scott never quit working on our behalf to ensure the deal got done! His guidance, diligence and follow up was second to none. We are now using Scott to sell our existing place and will actively recommend him to others. We highly trust his expertise and value his services."

In addition, he did a great job guiding us through the process. If you want an agent who is truly your advocate, Scott is the right choice."


"I am happy to write a testimonial on behalf of Scott Stavish who works with @ properties. Scott served as my real estate agent who handled the sale of a residence in one of the northern Chicago suburbs. Since this was an estate sale, it required a full service agent who could provide the necessary attention to many different details involved in the sale. Scott did a very good job in all aspects of this process. During the preparation phase, Scott demonstrated an admirable ability to organize, to plan and to get the job done. His network of local tradesmen and craftsmen provided me with quality and cost effective services, and at each step of the process, I was consulted and allowed to make informed decisions. Collectively, these preparations improved the curb appeal of the property, thereby increasing its market value. During the marketing phase Scott also did a noteworthy job. He arranged for multiple showings, and his experience and communication skills greatly contributed to a quick sale. Lastly, Scott was very effective at working through problems and facilitating resolution of potential issues between the buyer and the seller. In short, it was a pleasure working with Scott and I would have no hesitation in recommending his services to others."


"Whether buying or selling, Scott Stavish is the best in Chicago!"



"First, let me say that I am a very hard person to please. That said, Scott was unbelievable through the whole experience. He was intuitive, trustworthy, honest and very knowledgeable in an area of town that I was knew quite well. Scott was put through the test and passed with flying colors. I have already referred to a friend. I plan to use him again in purchasing more real estate and in selling our current home in a couple of years. He showed true class and unbelievable integrity. My only regret, is that I did not use him to purchase my current property. He is an asset and has ethics at a time when it is so rarely found."


"As first time home buyers, we had countless questions to the purchasing process, as well as market conditions. Scott was very thorough in making sure all of our questions and concerns were answered, and that we were as comfortable as possible from the initial consult through closing. We also appreciated Scott's professionalism in providing all details on each property, both the pros and cons. It allowed us to make informed and confident decisions. We love our new home and appreciate all the help in making it a reality!"


"Scott did an excellent job in every way I can think of. Advice on price, preparing the house to go to market, communication, negotiation and closing the transaction. This was the smoothest real estate experience that I have ever experienced and Scott gets a lot of credit for that. I would recommend him without hesitation."

"As a first time home buyer, I needed a lot of education about the overall process upfront. Scott took the time to teach me about the process in general before I was even 100% sure I wanted to buy. While overwhelmed at times, Scott was always available to answer my questions and offer advice whenever I asked. I probably needed a little extra 'hand holding' than other buyers and I really appreciated his willingness to provide that. I would definitely recommend Scott to anyone looking to buy, especially first time home buyers."


"Scott always did the right thing at the right time. The deal was touch and go and he remained stable and consistent throughout."



"I couldn't be happier with the job Matt Cochrane did. He always answered my calls or returned my calls quickly, set reasonable expectations, and was very professional. I will definitley use him again and refer him to my peers."
