Darrell Scott

Negar & Selva

Bucktown & Lakeview Buyer

Darrell is the best! We are so happy we got a chance to work with him. We first worked with Darrell over three years ago when we were looking for our first dream home. He patiently listened to what we wanted and set up excellent choices. He helped us purchase our current condo which we love. He had great knowledge of Chicago neighborhoods and real estate. He was very helpful with all his great advice throughout the entire process. We had such a wonderful experience working with him the first time that we decided to ask him for help again when my parents were looking for a new home. Once again, he helped us to find an amazing place. Darrell is very friendly, very responsive, and on top of things. We highly recommend working with him.

Valerie S.

River North Buyer & Seller

Darrell and his team were outstanding to work with! We had a lot of fun along the way for what can be a daunting transaction, but ultimately it was their successful approach that resulted in the sale of our condo in less than 2 weeks. We utilized their team for both the sale and purchase of our new townhome. Darrell and his team were always available during days, nights, weekends, and even on vacation! They provided solutions to a tricky transaction on the buy-side. The marketing was awesome for the selling of our condo, which generated numerous showings creating urgency for buyers. We'd highly recommend Darrell and his team. They got the job done quickly and both transactions were seamless. They lived up to their credibility!

Sara & Matt

West Loop Renter

We love working with Darrell! We first worked with him two years ago to find our first rental as a married couple and really loved where we decided on living! He must have known we were going to be looking again soon as he had perfect timing in reaching out to ask if we had an interest in finding a new rental this year. We just hit the town again to find us a new place and Darrell set up excellent choices for us and we’re thrilled with where we moved! He is truly knowledgeable about all parts of Chicago, he’s friendly and easy to work with, and we appreciated the opinions he gave us when we asked for his advice in deciding on a building. Couldn’t recommend working with him more!

Nicole H.

Lincoln Park Buyer

This year I was ready to purchase my first home, but I had absolutely no idea how I was going to do that. I started browsing online and came across Darrell. We spoke on the phone about some things that were important to me, what areas I was interested in and we booked 2 showings right away. He helped me find the perfect loft in Lincoln Park and walked me through every step. Starting at the initial offer, the inspection, and everything that came after all the way down to closing. He was extremely patient with my hundreds of questions and was always timely to respond. It was truly a pleasure working with him.

Lilla M.

River North Buyer

Darrell is an amazing real estate professional. He initially impressed us with a high quality open house and diligent follow-up, but he ended up being much more valuable than just that. He guided us on neighborhoods and types of units that matched our wants and needs. He got us a showing into the place we ultimately bought, guided us through each step of the process, was an excellent negotiator and communicator, and stayed with us all the way through the closing. We felt very cared for by Darrell each step of the way and wouldn't hesitate to work with him again. Anyone would be lucky to work with him!

Debbie R.

Lakeshore East Renter

Darrell Scott is a superlative real estate professional who is knowledgeable, resourceful, and trustworthy. I found him to have an extensive understanding of the Chicago real estate market and to be flexible, timely, and polite. He found me an amazing place in the New East Side that was just what I was looking for, and he helped my friend this year when he was looking to buy and sell his condo. It was a complete pleasure to work with Darrell and I gladly endorse and refer him to my friends. I will definitely call on him again next time I move.

Jill Scott

Sarah C.

Streeterville Renter

Jill Scott is an outstanding agent! My husband and I relocated to Chicago and had only one day to find a home. Jill devoted her entire day to our search. After just a few emails and phone calls, she showed us properties that fit us exactly. She would not stop until we found our dream spot. Within that day we found our home. We could not be happier where we landed. Her professionalism is unmatched. Our experience with Jill Scott was beyond what we had hoped for. She’s an absolute gem to work with. If ever we move again, we will put all of our trust in her. We highly recommend Jill!

Kate R.

Logan Square Buyer

You will not regret working with Jill. She’s on top of her work, responsive, and low-pressure. She knows the market well, and really takes the stress out of what would otherwise be a stressful process. So glad we chose to work with her to buy our home, we got a great deal and an incredibly helpful resource in her. She’s got ideas and recommendations for everything from inspectors to locksmiths, and she helps keep the process moving in a stress-free way.

Joey C.

Loop Renter

I have rented multiple properties with the help of Jill. Her knowledge of what’s available around Chicago (and especially her eye for great value or incentives) meant I got everything I wanted, for less than I expected to spend. Could not recommend her enough!

Matt Murphy

AlexRae A.

River North Renter

I was searching for a new apartment rental in River North, and Matt made the whole process (which is usually super stressful) seamless and easy. He was very familiar with the leasing high-rises in the city, showed me options that were all spot-on based on my parameters and likes or dislikes, and was super responsive to all of my questions. I ended up scoring an awesome deal on a building I normally wouldn't have even considered if it weren't for Matt, and am now super happy in my new home. I would highly recommend him!

Mark F.

Gold Coast Renter

Matt was great in helping me find a place that suited my needs. He never wasted my time and was very patient with the overall process. Additionally, he was very knowledgeable and honest when it came to how much I'd be paying in utilities and things of that nature. Once I selected a unit, he was very efficient in keeping the process moving along and did a great job of facilitating anything between the owner and myself.

Aaron D.

River North Renter

Matt made my move to Chicago effortless. He was super responsive and his insight about different locations and properties made me very comfortable. I am extremely happy with the apartment I now live in and it was due to Matt and his team, The Scott Group. I was referred to Matt by a friend who also was helped by his group and I know that I am going to refer any friend or family moving to Chicago to Matt.

Tamara M.

Streeterville Renter

My sister and I moved to Chicago from Dubai and were in need of an apartment asap as we were starting work in a week. Matt was an absolute delight to work with. He spent an entire day driving us to listings and was well-informed on everything. He was asking all of the right questions that we were forgetting to ask the apartment agent. He's an incredibly thoughtful agent and I would recommend him to anyone who is looking to rent in Chicago. He doesn't push you into a building and really listens to your needs. He is hands down the best realtor I have ever worked with and I'm beyond happy with my new apartment! Thank you, Matt!

Travis Smith

Jeff

Lakeview Buyer

I was fortunate to have worked with Travis as a first-time condo buyer in Chicago. He did his due diligence to fully understand what I was looking for in great detail and was patient with me, as we viewed multiple properties until finding the right one for me. Travis guided me through multiple rounds of negotiation to get to a price I was comfortable with and was very upfront, clear with me, and walked me through the entire purchase process. Travis was always very responsive and on top of things making sure I knew everything required of me and that everything happened on schedule. Travis’s low-pressure approach made the whole buying process a lot easier and less stressful than it would have been otherwise. I’d recommend him to any of my friends looking to buy in Chicago.

Michael

Lincoln Park Buyer

Travis is a fantastic real estate agent! I had the pleasure of utilizing his services to find two rental properties and eventually purchase a condo. It truly felt like he was "in my corner" throughout each of the three processes. He had my best interests in mind at all times and made sure I was 100% comfortable with each decision that was made. Travis was also very thorough, timely, and courteous, not only with me but also with his fellow real estate agents. He is an excellent resource to have in the Chicago real estate market, and I wouldn't be surprised if I worked with him again down the road. You cannot go wrong with Travis Smith!

Jake

Lakeview Buyer

My girlfriend and I were looking to move into our first place together. Both new to Chicago. Travis was recommended to me by a coworker, who said he'd be able to help. Travis not only found us a place but came in under budget and was significantly nicer than we could've imagined.

Vanessa Kanavos

S Dumovich

We hired Vanessa to sell our home, and she was amazing. At first we’re weren’t sure if we were ready but she advised us every step of the way, and got us top dollar for our property. She was very responsive with us, our buyers, attorney and mortgage broker. The process was very smooth and we have even recommended her to friends and family. 10/10 would work with her again!

Kristen P.

I'm yelling (from my new rooftop) for everyone to trust their home-buying experience with Vanessa -- she won't disappoint! As first-time home buyers, my partner and I were very nervous about getting the process started, but Vanessa quickly made those feelings go away. Upon our initial conversation, she gave us detailed materials, smart guidance, and the confidence we needed to start our search for a home. Vanessa was very patient with us on our lengthy house search (it was not an ideal task during the pandemic, but she made it seem easy). She was always quick to respond to our many, many questions via email or even by phone in case we still needed more clarification. Vanessa also connected us with reliable recommendations for inspectors, lawyers, etc. that took some other decision-making tasks off our plate and ultimately helped make the process go smoothly. Once we found our perfect home, she gave us great insights during the negotiation, and if it wasn't for her advice, we wouldn't have won the bid for our house. I couldn't be more pleased with how everything turned out! If we ever leave our perfect home, we'd be happy to do it all over again with Vanessa.
