Scott asks the question of what you are looking for in a house, what you would like to have and what you can do with out if nessary. Show you homes that are in you price range/ budget and not a home that will put you at the top end of your budget. He is direct and to the point. Very satisfied with the home I bought and sold with Scott Madaus as my agent. I highly recommend Scott as a real estate agent for buying and selling your home. Even if you are relocating to another city or state, Scott will assist you in connecting you with a highly recommended agent.
