When I moved to California in 2010 Scott was one of the first people outside of work that I met, he was originally my landlord for a small bachelor cabin in the Santa Cruz mountains. I met my future wife while living there, and we eventually moved out into a bigger place together, but when we wanted to purchase a home I knew I could trust Scott to help us navigate the complex and competitive world of Bay Area real estate. Scott guided us through the purchase of that first home, and then a few years later helped us sell that home on a contingent offer to buy our next home, then helped us sell that home as work took us out of the area. Scott is a cons...— Luke N.
My wife and I needed to find a home near Santa Cruz and move in within 2 months. It was our first home buying experience, yet I had done a lot of research on what steps I needed to take. I knew finding a good real estate team was critical. After our first meeting with Scott, we knew he was the right person. He started by really listening to what our goals were and then he helped us narrow down our target home criteria by showing us multiple types of properties in different areas. Once we zeroed in on our goal, he and his team were extremely proactive in finding us properties to look at and showing them to us. In the meantime, he connected us with a ...— Dave K.
Our family just purchased our first house during the COVID-19 pandemic. Scott is knowledgeable and has a great team, and I especially like to thank one of his team members who helped us a lot in the whole process. Honestly, we don't think any other agent would have taken better care of us in terms of buying a home. We are truly demanding buyers and had a long list of requirements with a limited budget, which made it difficult to find an ideal house in our desired neighborhood. Yet Scott took our requirements seriously and guided us throughout the house-hunting process. When we looked at houses with him he always gave us feedback and pointed out some...— Rex H.
Scott was very thorough, professional, and knowledgeable about the area and the current state of the real estate market. He was very easy to work with and was on the same wavelength as me in terms of pricing and marketing the home. His team did a great job of getting the property prepared and staged, and guiding me through the process of filling out the many forms necessary to prepare for the sale. The pricing strategy was done very successfully and we got several offers above to ask in a matter of days. We had a difficult situation with the first prospective buyer who backed out late in the escrow process, and Scott gave good advice as we navigated...— Alec P.
We have had the pleasure of working with Scott on two occasions. First, as our selling agent, he put our duplex in San Jose on the market. He priced it just right; within a day we had multiple offers and it sold above the asking price. The selling transaction was smooth as well largely because Scott took care of everything. Since we were so satisfied with Scott we asked for his expertise in helping us buy an investment property on the Peninsula. Scott is very knowledgeable about all the different neighborhoods-he steered us away from a few neighborhoods that we initially were interested in. We are thankful he did because we found a beautiful investm...— Joel S.
Five stars across the board! We’ve worked with Scott on three transactions (twice as buyers and once as sellers) over seven years and have had good outcomes every time. Scott takes the time to really build a relationship and understand everyone’s needs. He is very knowledgeable about the local market as well as broader trends and brings that to bear in his guidance to clients and negotiations with the other party. Our most recent transaction with Scott was the most challenging, in that we listed our house just as the COVID crisis took a drastic turn for the worse. Scott’s optimism, good judgment, and patience really helped make a stressful and stran...— Rahul B.
Scott was recommended by a family member who utilized Scott's expertise on the selling and buying side of his property. I know that he was so pleased with Scott's knowledge and skills so it was a no-brainer for me to hire Scott to sell my condo. He had recommended that I upgrade my unit and I was so thankful that I listened to him. The upgrades were beautiful and I was so glad that I trusted his input. Once on the market, I got an offer less than two weeks and my condo sold! Throughout the process, Scott was always available to me. I was always impressed with his skills and felt lucky to have him as my Realtor®. He is super nice and very polished. H...— Therese
I met Scott by chance at an open house for another property. On first contact, he impressed me with his confidence and professionalism, and we had initial discussions on the sale of my late uncle's property the very next day. As I live on the East Coast, Scott was very attentive over the ensuing months by email and telephone, and carefully guided me through the process of prepping, listing, and selling the property. After the property was listed, we had a buyer within 6 days, at a very good price! I would go to Scott again if I were interested in buying or selling property in the area and can recommend him to others without reservation! He's excellent!— McDonald D.
Scott is a rock star! He came highly recommended by some friends and he exceeded the expectations in helping us buy a home in the Bay Area. The best thing about Scott is that he was unequivocally on our side throughout the process. There were times when we were going to make hasty decisions but Scott acted as a trusted adviser and helped us in not make bad decisions. Scott is a full-service agent and has an outstanding team. Special thanks to Lisa who helped us be on top of our to-dos to ensure the transaction went through smoothly. I strongly recommend him to anyone thinking of buying real estate in the Bay Area.— Prashant A.
Scott Poncetta has recently handled the sale of four single-family, 1031 exchange and purchase of two multi-family buildings totaling $5.99M. During the process Scott's ability to provide strategic insight into the sale and 1031 exchange process as well as the ability to select and negotiate the purchase of our new properties were invaluable. During this complex and challenging process, Scott's ability to calmly handle all obstacles with class and style set him apart from other real estate professionals I've worked with in the past. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to purchase or sell a property.— Woodbury J.
We worked with Scott to sell our home, and purchase a new one in November of 2018. The sale of our home took longer than expected and was highly stressful, to say the least. Scott and his incredible team were the only people who kept us sane throughout the process. Scott's negotiating skills got us the price we were looking for during the sale of our house, and more importantly, helped us buy our new dream home! Scott is truly an expert in his field, but more importantly, he really cares about his clients. My husband and I have a Realtor® for life! Trust me, you will love him.— Rudow A.
My wife and I were looking to sell our home in Santa Cruz Gardens and upgrade into a house with a larger yard. We tried for two years with no luck. Every time we would find a home it seemed like it was already sold, due to a hot market. That's when we met Scott! He not only helped sell our home in a matter of days but was able to get us into our dream home. My wife and I can't say enough about Scott, we don't consider him our Realtor® anymore, we consider him a good friend! He is the best in the business!— Buyer & Seller
We would never have been able to swing this deal had it not been for Scott. His knowledge and expertise far surpass anything/anyone we have known in his field. That is why we were able to get our dream house despite a raucous 17-party bidding war. Broadly speaking - experience and negotiating skills should never ever be understated, and our case illustrated just that. Thank you Scott for manning the helm on this. We will be eternally grateful.— Rohit T.
Scott and his team were able to take what can be a very scary and intimidating experience (buying a home in the bay area) and make it a very simple and comfortable process for our family. Scott took the time to listen and understand our family situation and needs and was with us every step of the way. For us, working with Scott was like having a Realtor® in the family. We will definitely continue working with him in the future.— Buyer
Scott and his team are first-class individuals! I didn't have the easiest purchase (Duplex/Triplex) with lots of variables to account for. Scott and his team went above and beyond and were there for me the entire time. This was my first real estate purchase. I highly recommend Scott. High integrity, responsiveness, and professionalism. I will only use Scott and his team for any future real estate purchases!— Dan W.
Scott made us feel secure in the search for our first home purchase in the Bay Area. He came highly recommended by two of our friends and exceeded our expectations for personal service and expertise. He took the time to understand our needs and gave us solid advice on the homes we were interested in. The whole process was a smooth running and positive one!— Majken B.
I was only allowed to choose three positive attributes, but I could have easily selected all of them. Scott helped me through the purchase of my first home. His knowledge of a unique property like mine was invaluable. The whole transaction could not have gone smoother, and both parties were pleased with the results. I highly recommend Scott.— Jer G.
A friend of ours recommended Scott when we were on the lookout for our first home. Scott was very patient and understood our needs and budget. He has excellent negotiating skills and always puts his clients first! He and his team were very diligent when submitting offers. It was a great experience working with him!— Namburi
Scott is a homebuyer's asset. He is patient and worked with us by focusing on our needs and feedback until we found what we were looking for. He is very personable and relaxed throughout the process while getting things done, even when unforeseen challenges arise.— Mike D.
I want to give a strong recommendation for Scott. He helped us out with getting our home, and he did a great job! I would recommend him to anyone that is on the market to buy a house.— Eva B.
