“A good name is more desirable than great riches; To be esteemed is better than silver or gold.”
This is our second time using Scott as our realtor. He sold my girlfriend and I our first home. Now, he helped me sell my home. He is diligent, knowledgeable, and very helpful. He exceeded my expectations in terms of service. He guided me through the sales process seamlessly. Based on his advice, my house sold quickly and for top dollar. I heartily recommend his services.

Scott was a pleasure to work with as our selling agent. His advice on preparing the home for market was helpful and reasonable, he identified the right target price for our initial listing, and he was prompt in contacting us with updates during the negotiation of our sale. He was also helpful and compassionate when I got nervous about the sale. He truly cared for our family during the whole process. I would heartily recommend Scott to anyone in need of a Realtor!
I live in an awesome home. The result of a 2 year search. Scott was very patient as we looked for the perfect lake home. When we finally found the right home, we were competing against a number of buyers. Scott's creativity in offer preparation and presentation lead to our offer being accepted without over paying.
Scott also guided us in preparing our home for sale. The result was multiple offers and an excellent final price.
Scott is a hardworking professional with a refreshing high level of integrity. I recommend him highly.
Pros-very knowledgeable and helpful with each home showed. Fun and easy to work with. Easily accessible. Best there is. Never had realtor be so prepared and insightful as each house was shown. Love Scott Sowles. He helped me find my dream home and fast. Great negotiating.

Great Realtor – and an all-around great guy! Scott went above and beyond what most realtors ever would to help me list a property that most realtors wouldn’t have even cared about. He hung in there with me for months while we worked to get it in good shape. He offered great advice, then, when it was finally up to par, he listed my property. And it sold the next day! The closing yesterday was the smoothest I’ve ever experienced (and I’ve bought and sold over 20 homes in the pat 25 years!). THANKS Scott!
Scott is the most knowledgeable and resourceful real estate agent I have had the pleasure to know. I can assure you he will sell your home and obtain the top dollar the market will allow. He will also sell your home and obtain top dollar. He gives practical and succinct market advice to achieve the aforementioned goals.
Scott Sowles is a very honest, hardworking, Real Estate Agent and Master Negotiator. You won't find a better person to work with. What people must remember is buying or selling real estate is extremely hard. It usually is a long process, full of major and minor hurdles. We worked with Scott to purchase property and to sell our home. He spent an incredible amount of time developing a strategy to do both, and by following his plan, we were successful accomplishing both of our goals. Don't short change yourself and try to go with anyone else. You won't regret it!
My family and I personally have worked with Scott for over 10 years. I have lost count of how many houses he has helped us buy and sell. What I really like about Scott is his straightforward approach to buying and selling. If you have a good idea he will tell you, but best of all, he will keep you from making a mistake in marketing, staging, negotiating, whatever. His experience really makes a difference. I couldn't believe we got the home we wanted on the lake and sold ours in less than 30 days. Scott is awesome!
Sincere, honest, caring and experienced are just a small hand full of Scott's qualities in being your real estate agent. He takes time to listen, to understand your wish list and he helps lead you in the home buying or selling process. Sometimes you need a little nugget of honesty to help you get to the next step, he will do that for you. I loved laughing with Scott during our house hunting journey. His sense of humor and compassion make him a great guy to hang out with. I hope you will check him out and enjoy your real estate adventure with him! Five stars for professionalism, honesty and personality. We had a sense of partnership doing it together with Scott, like we were his family. Our closing process was a smooth ride as he helped walk us through it all the way! Thanks Scott for the work with us!

Scott is great to work with and helped us find exactly what we wanted, which wasn't easy! He is very knowledgeable but most of all trustworthy. He is honest (even when you may not want to hear the truth!) and a man of integrity.
Love Scott...he is very knowledgeable about the market. He is honest about what to expect and my husband and I trust him completely. My husband has used Scott twice before, each time with the same results. A home sold and closed quickly, friendly, fabulous service and a realtor who knows what he is doing! Would recommend him with no reservations. He is the best!
Donny Steele and Louise Schneberger
I’ve known and worked with Scott for more than a decade. When my husband and I found the property for our dream home to be built on and sell the home my husband owned for 25 years, there was never even a consideration about any other realtor. Scott's knowledge, level of professionalism and dedication to clients is second to none. I refer everyone that needs a Realtor to him. He is #1 in our book!

Scott sold our house for us a few years ago in a very difficult situation, allowing us to relocate out of state. When we knew we were returning [to Michigan] Scott was our choice to help us purchase our new home. Scott was great to work with throughout the shopping process. Eventually we found our new home. Unfortunately, we were out of state at closing and, through a mix up on our end, the electricity got turned off in late November! Since we were on our way back to Michigan from across the country (in a motor home) we had no way to keep our house heated. Scott bought a generator from a local retailer, with his own money, brought the generator to our house, hooked it up and then came to run the generator every day so that our pipes didn’t freeze – until we arrived in the area and could take over. If not for Scott’s efforts our pipes would have frozen and broke. Talk about a Realtor going the extra mile!! Thanks Scott!
Scott helped us get into what can only be called our dream home! We had been watching a subdivision located on the water. When THE home was listed, Scott had us in to see it that afternoon and had an offer submitted later that evening. Unfortunately, we were one of many other bids…but the competition didn’t have Scott on their side! We had seen how offers were going in this neighborhood, and Scott had an idea on how to make our offer the one the bank couldn’t refuse. We soon found out that our offer, even though it wasn’t the highest that had received, was the offer they were accepting! Oh, and did I mention that this subdivision was about 30 miles outside of Scott’s usual territory? Now here we are 3 months later, and my husband and I are very happily settled into the home we plan to grow old in. Thank you Scott Sowles, thank you!

After looking for a house in the North-Western Detroit area I quickly came to realize that not all agents are the same. Most would take me to see houses, give me the information that was already available on the listing, and promise to send new houses that pop up to my email. I had a hard time finding someone that was willing to go our of their way during their busy day to help with my big investment. For these reasons, instead of sticking with a dedicated agent I used the listing agents to look at houses that I found myself. One of the houses that I found was listed by Scott. When he showed me the house, it was obvious that he was not the typical real estate agent. He does his research on the properties, goes above and beyond what is expected and is prompt to get back to you. Scott makes the home shopping experience fun and leaves you with confidence in your decision. He takes everything that you are looking for into consideration and does his best to find the best property per your criteria. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is in the market and looking for an agent that is an expert at his profession.
We want to express our deepest gratitude for our amazing realtor, Scott Sowles. Throughout our entire process of searching for a house, Scott has been there to guide us and support us. He is a true asset to this trade. His ability to integrate a humorous personality, professionalism, empathy and also have an extensive knowledge base is what makes Scott so ideal as a real estate professional. Scott always presents himself with honesty, integrity and passion. On a daily basis, these traits shined through and provided comfort and a peace of mind during very important, and sometimes stressful, situations.
As first-time home buyers, our knowledge base was extremely limited, and discomfort was extremely high. Scott was able to carry us comfortably through pages and pages of what seemed like jargon to us, until we fully understood each single page. Scott is someone we trust and have come to appreciate more and more each day. He was always looking out for our best interest and never once pressured us to do something we weren’t comfortable doing.
Scott Sowles is a realtor who goes above and beyond what is expected. With the latest technology in the world, a personal touch is something that is slowly disappearing. However, Scott embraces technology-constantly calling us, texting us, and e-mailing us whenever there is news to share. Also, the day before closing, Scott planned a lunch meeting with the three of us to discuss final closing paperwork and the meaning of each section. He was truthful, realistic and efficient. Overall, my husband and I couldn’t have been happier with the service we received from Scott. From the absolute bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU.

Scott was so easy to work with when we were on the search of a fixer upper for my daughter and ourselves to invest in. He knew what area to stay away from and what area would have the most potential for growth. He is a wealth of knowledge when it comes to selling a house as well! Thank you for all you did for us Scott. We will definitely be referring you to all our friends and family.”
Randy and Julie Grunewald
Scott was professional and knowledgeable about the real estate business. He took his time showing us homes and pointing out things to look for in houses and other things to shy away from. He used creativity to come up with a solution to our housing needs, as well as to write up an offer the buyer would accept. Scott's integrity and professionalism make him stand out in his field. We will definitely use Scott in the future when it comes time to look for another house!
Chris and Sarah Desjardine
I highly recommend Scott! He helped my family through a very long and complex real estate deal during the housing market crash. He developed a plan with us, kept us on track, calmed our fears and pulled us through. I don't know another realtor that would have worked that hard.
Using the staging tips combined with the wonderful pictures and video that Scott did made my home look absolutely beautiful it looked so much bigger and like something you’d see in a magazine!
I would absolutely recommend Scott Sowles to anyone looking to sell or buy a home. Settling my mom's estate and selling her condo was something I did not look forward to. Scott's knowledge of the market, his professionalism, his attention to detail, and the expert photography helped us sell quickly. He explains everything perfectly, and really listens to your concerns. He went above and beyond what I had expected, even helped tighten some loose bathroom fixtures! He is in a profession that he truly loves and it shows in his work. Keep up the good work, Scott. Now keep your eyes open for that "little house on the prairie" we've been talking about.
I have been extremely fortunate to have Scott as my realtor, and a friend. Scott has offered such valuable information - so valuable it has helped me sell my last two houses, purchase one house, and lease two others. Scott guides you step by step through the process, whether it's buying, selling or leasing. While I may not have always liked his suggestions…I quickly learned that listening to him was always in my best interest, and especially in the best interest of my wallet. Scott is an encyclopedia of knowledge- and not only when it comes to buying and selling homes…. One example is understanding people, what emotions and feelings may be attached to the home sale/buying/leasing process. He's always helped me understand the buyer or sellers’ perspective. He is full of great information, funny jokes, and most important, he's full of integrity. Recently Scott prevented me from being homeless, due to a number of unfortunate circumstances, and he did it in 4 days! You can definitely trust Scott for all your realtor needs.
Scott is the definition of a true professional! His work goes far beyond the usual CMA analyses and basic listing procedures that all realtors do. He explains the overall trends in the marketplace, explains the reasons for recent comp prices in your neighborhood, determines best strategy for getting the best value for your property, including finding ways to get the highest appraisal value. And he does all this with a friendly, optimistic attitude and was never condescending. Best realtor I've ever worked with and I've been involved with several real estate transactions during my lifetime.
I want you to know just how pleased we have been with dealing with you in the past few months as you helped us sell our two Rochester houses. You were so kind, patient, cool, calm and collected at all times! We felt that you gave us good advice and that you were always willing to listen to our side of things on the little things and the not-so-little things. We can honestly say that we will miss you and our regular phone calls and visits from you. You made a stressful time much less stressful. Now that it is all finished, we almost wish we had more houses for you to list! We wish you continued success in your real estate career.

Now that the ‘dust’ has settled and all of the papers have been signed (and signed…and signed), Dave and I thank you for all of your tremendous help in finding us our new home and selling our former home. Your expertise was so valuable, as was your attentiveness and support. We were delighted with the entire process, and, of course, the outcome. Please share our gratitude with your entire team. You and they are true professionals.
Dave and Carolyn Shantz
Scott is an amazing realtor. He never misses a detail and responds quickly to any questions you might have. Scott sold our condo and helped us purchase our new home. I would never work with another realtor and recommend him to everyone.
Let me start by saying Scott is the best! We always knew when we were ready to sell our home and buy another we wanted Scott to be our Realtor. We are so grateful he was our agent. He is honest, always has positive attitude and his expertise is invaluable. He goes above and beyond to make sure you are well informed and has options to whatever roadblocks pop up. He sold our home faster than we thought it would so pressure was on to find another. He was always available to look at houses with us. Often at times that worked with our schedule but not necessarily with his. I found a house on a Saturday morning and contacted Scott. He set up a showing in 2 hours - we saw it and wanted it. He wrote up the contract, presented our offer directly to the seller and stayed with it until 8 pm on a Saturday! That's the dedication he has for his clients. I don't really think Scott thinks of us as clients – it’s more like friends or extended family. Scott is someone who really cares what happens to you, always has your best interest in mind. We will never be able to thank him enough and will miss him when this is all over. I would highly recommend Scott. Thank you Scott and your family for the sacrifices that make. You’re #1!
John and Julie Hahn
I was very fortunate to have Scott as my realtor. I knew nothing about selling a house, but Scott guided me step by step and it sold in 3 days once he had the for sale sign up and I had multiple offers and here I was worried it would take forever to sell. You can trust in him all the way.
With Scott as our Realtor in a property we sold and also a property we bought we relied on his expert advice and were very satisfied in both instances. Scott is trustworthy, and I would not hesitate to recommend him.
Scott's marketing skills, coupled with his utilization of drone photos highlighting the unique property, is what yielded a signed & sealed purchase agreement in less than a week. Fabulous work!
