Scott Hayes invites his clients to expect the extraordinary. A Realtor® for over 15 years specializing in rural and luxury properties in the San Mateo County area, Scott helps buyers and sellers navigate this unique market with ease and efficiency, providing extraordinary service with exceptional knowledge of the market.
Most people who look at rural properties in the suburban Bay Area aren’t quite sure what to expect or what to look for. Is a well that produces 3 gallons a minute good? Can you cut down any trees? Can you build a barn? Clients count on Scott to have answers to all the important questions specific to the rural and luxury homes he represents.
Scott makes it a point to show all of his listed properties personally to ensure each buyer’s questions are answered fully and completely. Well versed in San Mateo County and City of Woodside regulations, Scotts knowledge extends will beyond individual property descriptions and helps buyers understand the true value of a property and envision what’s possible.
A former marketing executive, Scott uses his extensive experience to create specialized marketing programs for his listings. He uses the latest technology and social media outlets to ensure sellers get the highest possible price for their homes in the shortest time on the market. Scott’s listings regularly sell for well over their asking price, commanding 113% of the asking price on average.
Buyers trust Scott to help them find the ideal property to suit their needs at the best possible value. He often helps his buyers locate properties not listed on the open market, and those represented by Scott pay an average of 92% of the asking price (well under the area average of 96%).
Described by one client as “Dr. Phil and a financial advisor rolled into one,” Scott helps take the emotional responses out of the negotiation process, ensuring a more successful outcome. There’s a lot of emotion attached to selling one’s own home or buying a new place, and Scott absorbs that emotion for his clients, ensuring it doesn’t get in the way of the bigger picture.
