Dear Paul Clark,
We have been in our new home for just over 2 weeks. It was our first home purchase and the entire process from beginning to end was really good and positive. I believe that was primarily due to Scott Roat.
We had had 2 prior agents and we were obviously dissatisfied with their performance. From the first day Scott showed the ability to listen, not push, give very sound advice, be diligent and follow through and also gave the necessary space for my wife and to process. Once we did have our offer accepted he was quick to give us updates and guide us down the path to ownership.
We have subsequently recommended him to our friends who are looking for a home and I will give out his name anytime someone needs an agent. I will also call him if and when we ever do sell our house.
Scott Roat is a great real estate agent and your company is lucky to have him.
"My family's plan to sell our father's old farmhouse near Albion was complicated by the challenges of a rustic house with lots of deferred maintenance, conflict within the family, and an awkward trust with three Trustees. Scott came to a difficult situation with the kind of calmness and poise that I wouldn't have thought possible. Scott is pleasant, direct, thoughtful, patient, and good humored. He is also a good conversationalist, which helps maintain the relationship between client and agent when the going gets tough. He has lots of resources and problem solving skills, not to mention integrity and initiative. At the end of escrow, he went far above and beyond any obligation to us by personally emptying the house, saving me a 9-hour drive and several trips to the dump. We are deeply in debt to Scott. Thank you, thank you, thank you!"
"During my recent purchase of land in Mendocino I was fortunate and grateful to step into the office of Scott Roat. From the beginning he was genuine, friendly, professional, empathetic and helpful. He checked in regularly and I always felt he had a real concern for my welfare and needs. He did everything in his power to make the purchase go through easily. He always saw the bigger picture and achieved a win-win situation for a happy resolution for all parties concerned. I highly recommend him.
"Many thanks, Scott!"
"Scott sets a new standard for Realtors to aspire to. He started by showing exactly what I said I was looking for, and in short order, showed me exactly what I really wanted. I was well served during the negotiation process and his in-depth knowledge of the local scene is a huge plus before, during and after the sale."

"Throughout the process of searching for a home in the Mendocino area, Scott Roat was totally there for us with information on what we told him we wanted, details of the process of making an offer, escrow, inspections necessary, referrals to professionals in the area that we needed, statistics related to the area, rapid answers to queries by e-mail and phone. He researched information for us if he did not have it. Throughout the relationship, he was professional and thoughtful and great to work with. We recommend him highly."
Jane Calender and Ken Christison
"Throughout the process of selling our property, Scott consistently went above and beyond. He was available, responsive, and creative, and thought of details we missed. He treated the property as his own, excited to show it at its best and eager to find the right buyers. He had unusually broad marketing resources which gave the property greater exposure, consequently it sold more quickly. High integrity, generous with his time and a pleasure to deal with. I would give him the highest recommendation."

"You're the best realtor I've ever worked with. It's not just what you do, it's who you are."
"We very much appreciate the service you provided to us. You anticipated needs before they hit and made the process so smooth for us. You also kept our interests at the forefront, while making sure steps were done properly. We have already expressed to friends on the Mendocino coast how fortunate we were for your services."Jim and Cindy Plank
"Working with you was like having my own personal assistant."
"Dear Scott, Thank you so much for all your help in purchasing our new home in Albion. You went beyond what most realtors provide in term of services. Your personal warmth, continuous availability, your sensitivity when we didn't feel comfortable with the house you were showing, as well as your incredible knowledge about the area, the climate, the opportunities, financing, etc., were all so useful and important in our final bid. You also shared when you didn't know something and then did research and found us the answers. Wow. Even today, you are still helping us find a colorist, months later. You are truly more than we expected and also a good friend. Our gratitude goes beyond this letter. You are very good at what you do and very skilled. You helped us find the home we wanted and dreamed about. What more could one ask for? Yet, you did, and offered so much more. Thanks so much, Scott. We are forever indebted to your kindness and integrity."

"Scott helped me find a wonderful country property for a great price. Two years on we were ready for a bigger place and Scott found us a buyer within the first week and arranged for creative financing on a more difficult scenario that worked for everybody. I would recommend him to anyone looking for unique properties in Mendocino."
"Thank you Scott, You've handled everything in a very professional manner. Even more importantly, you invested your own time supporting us through the whole process; to that I want to say thank you on a personal level."
Eric da Rosa
"Congratulations Scott! You deserve it. The work you put in to our deal was beyond the remuneration. I was very impressed with the initiative you took to get into the whole deal. Kudos well deserved."
