Why Work With Us?
Here's what our satisfied customers are saying about us:
Excellent experience working with Tim Scott and Linda Pakus from the day we put the land on the market until it was sold.
All information was handled promptly and efficiently. I would highly recommend Tim Scott
We LOVED working with Tim.
We are from NYC and although we were a little bit familiar with this area of Vermont when we started the process of looking to buy a summer home, we knew nothing about the process of buying a house, even less a farmhouse! We felt completely at ease asking Tim even the silliest questions, he was always of good advice and we completely trusted his judgement. He was always there to help, in the noblest sense of the expression.
We must have seen something like 6 or 7 houses before finding our dream (we got lucky but we were also ready to act quickly). During the search, Tim quickly got a sense of what we were looking for and showed us only properties that he thought we would like. There were several times when we jumped on him with a request to visit a specific place and he was always ready to show it to us, despite his busy schedule. During visits, he never pressured us one way or another, but would give us frank and detailed advice as soon as we were ready to ask him his opinion. We continued our discussions by text and email and Tim was always there to follow up with our questions. And he clearly never gave any attention to the price of the properties and how it would affect his commission at the end of a potential sale.
These visits were always very instructional. We learned a lot about how a house work, Tim often drew on his own experience as a home owner himself. We even got to meet his family and his dog! His courtesy, his cheerfulness made the whole process completely stress free, and when we found our dream house, we knew that we were ready to jump on the occasion and make an offer.
The process of acquiring the house went extremely smoothly. Tim put us in touch with a local banker he respects, helped us find the inspector to evaluate the property, and he was there during the inspection. We trusted Tim and his judgement, and we trusted the people he recommended.
At some point during the whole process,
Tim talked about something as "the neighborly thing to do", and that is exactly how we felt he was treating us: as his future neighbors, as future members of the extended community in this corner of Vermont's North East Kingdom.
That is truly priceless.
My husband and I had a great selling experience with Tim Scott. From day 1 of dealing with Tim, he was responsive to all of our questions, and never left anything unanswered. He gave excellent advice, and were in contract for the sale of our house in less than 6 months of being on the market. Today was our closing date, and I cannot speak highly enough of our overall experience with Tim Scott Realty!
Mary Scott is amazing! She went above and beyond to help us purchase our home. She responded quickly and was there for us every step of the way. I highly recommend her! Thank you Mary!

"We had 3 offers the first day it was listed in a tough market. Things went seamlessly from start to finish. There is just not anyone better. His advice was priceless and spot on. I have bought and sold 8 homes over the last 30 years and he was the best I ever worked with. You need him on your team!"
Tim is an exceptional realtor. He is so “plugged in” to everyone in the community and seems to have his hand on the pulse of the real estate market. He was our 2nd realtor, we learned the hard way but quickly that not all realtors are good realtors. Fortunately we contracted with Tim & he had qualified buyers ready to see our home in the first week and our first offer came within 10 days. The offer we accepted came to us only 6 weeks after Tim got the listing. He promoted our home through social media, filmed a 360 degree video of our home and provided professional, sales oriented descriptions of our home for our listings on the main realtor websites. Our house was under contract with Tim within 2 months time and he handled everything so professionally for us right through the closing. It made the home sale so very easy for us. We would enthusiastically recommend Tim Scott if you’re looking for a home or looking to sell a home.
Tim was very easy to work with . Very Professional! We felt that he was very knowledgeable of the local community and the area! He was helpful when negotiations were difficult to understand, he helped to explain.
Mary was able to navigate a very large property with many details entwined throughout the process with a supportive and helpful mannerism at all times.
Tim spent countless hours showing me several different homes. He knew my needs and what would and wouldn't be a good fit for me. He helped advise me on what areas had good resell value and which didn't. When it came time to negotiate with the seller Tim's many years of experience really came into play.
We were selling a property from a distance and found that Tim Scott was professional and thorough. When it came time to consider offers, he advised us carefully and wisely, and brought the sale to closure with a minimum of drama and a maximum of efficiency. As a result, the house is now in the hands of a young family who are making it theirs and who will love it as we have. Such a result makes the process worthwhile, and we are grateful to Tim and Linda for their expertise and fine work.
