Scott and his team were professional, knowledgeable and extremely responsive. I would highly recommend his firm to anyone who wants to sell their house expeditiously and at the most competitive price. - user97431267 for Scott Shaheen
Scott was GREAT to work with. He answers his phone every time. That may sound like a little thing but it definitely is not. He made us feel like we were the only people he was working with. As busy as he is he let us know we were very important to him. His vast knowledge of the industry helped us avoid bumps along the way. If you want someone who can get the job done, get it done quickly and seamlessly please call Scott. You will be so happy you did! - Jenny Price for Scott Shaheen
Very responsive - Scott was night and day compared to our previous agent. We found the home we wanted, but our other agent struggled to stay on top of all the moving pieces. Scott made buying this home easy-peasy. - zuser20151118161752594
The best things about our house sale were Scott Shaheen, Scott Ruth, and SRMFRE. They answered our every question and met our every need. They proved persistent, insightful, innovative, energetic, and were always available. They have unequalled connections in the Richmond area realtor community, and are unsurpassed in their knowledge of the Richmond area market. The Shaheen/Ruth team was crucial to the sale of a unique house in a thin market -- a house that, without them, well might be standing still unsold. Five stars across the board. - rdm367 for Scott Shaheen
Scott and his fantastic team are the best in Richmond. They gave us a great assessment of the market, helped us get repairs and painting done before our house hit the market...and did so painlessly and quickly. Our house was sold in one day and we got a price over our asking price. Scott is a true professional and his company is worth the commission you pay them. Don't wast your time with other agents...Scott and his team are the best! - zuser20140530184727517 for Scott Shaheen
Scott was extremely knowledgeable about every part of the home buying process from negotiating for the new house, preparing to sell the old house and the actual sale of the house. He was always available when we had questions and always knew the answer. We followed all of his advice and had a great outcome on both ends. This is the third time we’ve had Scott as our realtor and we highly recommend him. - fnvhokie for Scott Shaheen
Scott was a true full service realtor. Not simply listing the property but coordinating solutions with issues as they arose. He and his firm also have a great list of professionals that can be called upon to lend a hand. - Gary Teagno for Scott Shaheen
We did not know Scott before we decided to sell our home. We called him because we knew he has worked in the Richmond area for many years and would be familiar with the market. We have been in Richmond for 50 years and realized just how well he knows the area during our first meeting. We were also very impressed with how he and his firm use technology to promote their properties. He is very savvy and up-to-date in this regard and this was important to us. Scott is also very straightforward, excellent at keeping the client informed, and stays in close touch. Having served the Richmond market for so many years, he is well-connected and knows whom to call to get things done. His knowledge, responsiveness, and reliability took a lot of the stress off of us. We approached the prospect of selling our home with dread but quickly found we could rely on Scott to get things done quickly and properly. We couldn't have been more pleased and highly recommend him without reservation. - Debraj927 for Scott Shaheen
