I’ve called Wellington County home for over 15 years… from country living in Eramosa , a ‘southy’ near our university.. (before there was a ‘way’ southy) to now residing in the downtown area. I know Guelph and all of its little pockets, and there are a lot of them. Our pockets have pockets. I’ve most likely been up and down every street in Guelph while running my own business in the home renovation industry for over 10 years. I built that business on hard work, trust and an attention to detail…. I now bring that everyday as a realtor. I know houses, I love houses. Half of my business was getting homes ready for market to maximize the investment on a variety of budgets.
Instinctively I don’t like being ‘sold’ on anything. It bothers me the amount of useless junk we are bombarded with on a daily basis - I can’t stand commercials, I have trouble at the drive thru… No I don’t need a donut with that… but I will take one, sour cream glazed thanks. So when I was approached about becoming a realtor I wasn’t sure it would be for me, the suits, the SUV- I kept my truck, and own a suit now, but prefer boardies and flip flops- but I knew I loved houses, buying, selling, fixing them up for myself and my clients and it's actually been an easy transition that’s brought a new spark into my life and lit a fire of motivation and dedication. I’ve bought and sold for years prior to becoming a Realtor®.. fixer uppers, rental properties sometimes with and sometimes without a Realtor®. I’ve learned what I like, what I don’t like, what works and what doesn’t. I've also learned that in today’s market you need an inside guy that actually is looking out for your best interests. Through these experiences my new career was being waved in front of my face and I knew the realtor I wanted to become.
I love calling Guelph and Wellington county area home, it really only needs an ocean… and I’m working on that. If you're leaving, let's use the strategies that will get you top dollar- but know that most likely, you’ll be back. If you are joining us or just moving around, you’ll learn it has a great heart with a community that’s full of surprises… the music, food, Hillside festival! Together we can find the perfect fit so you can enjoy it all and I will take the time and care needed to make it happen.
I’m a story guy. I want to hear yours first and find the house that fits your story. The process is not complicated and should be fun, if you have the right knowledge and preparation. I’ll keep you informed, prepared and relaxed along the journey. Tell me the goal and I’ll help you reach it.
Bottom line is you are at the controls here, I’m riding shotgun feeding you every bit of relevant information you need to get you to your destination. Ultimately, every decision is made by you.
You make your own luck. Have a goal,
get a plan and be good to people.
I was looking to downsize into a small bungalow from my large family home which was built for us 23 years ago. Life had evolved and I knew that when I was ready to move – I hoped things would move quickly and they did. I choose Cory Scott from Trillium West. I’ve known Cory for approximately 6 years during which time he has been a great help to my family. He had helped me with a number of renovations over the years. A few years ago he joined Trillium West. A couple of years ago I mentioned to Cory that eventually I would like to move into a bungalow, which needed to be close to church, work, shopping and he delivered. As soon as I entered this particular bungalow I had a most peaceful feeling and knew it was the right one for me. Even though it was built in 1959 with a 60’s décor we knew that it had good bones. Cory checked all the big ticket items like the roof, windows, furnace, etc. which were fairly new, and I ended up renovating most of the inside to today’s standards and décor. So while renovations were being done on the bungalow we did some final updates on the family home, staged it and of course I listed my home with Cory. We tried one strategy first and had to revise it but it all worked out in the end as we sold the home in one month. From last July onwards it was an extremely stressful time for me as I purchased the bungalow, started major renovations on it, sold my family home which was very emotional and it was also the busiest time at work for me. Looking back I’m not sure how I survived it all. For me the key is having trust and a good understanding with your realtor and I do have that with Cory, also his support was amazing. Thank you, Cory.
We were very fortunate to have Cory Scott from TrilliumWest as our realtor when my husband and I started our search for our second home. As our realtor, Cory proved repeatedly that he was definitely someone we could trust, and that he was always on our side throughout the entire process. In addition, even through a home search can be very stressful, especially when the market is crazy, Cory made it simple and easy, being with us every step of the way. He was always available, to view homes and to answer calls or emails, no matter the time; day or night. He was also very knowledgeable answering all our questions. Cory was also very patient as he helped and led us through multiple offer situations, on multiple homes, never loosing hope saying we will find exactly what we were looking for. His professionalism, mentorship, knowledge, honesty, and hard work ethic are much appreciated, and Cory ended up finding and closing the home of our dreams. I would recommend Cory Scott and TrilliamWest to anyone.
I am thankful to Cory Scott for helping me step by step through the stressful process of both selling my house and purchasing a new one. He listened to my needs, provided a Comparative Market Analysis of the properties in the area in order to make an informed decision in determining a listing price. He helped "stage" my home knowing what buyers are looking for. He worked with a number of people to prepare a professional virtual tour video which made the house show so well. He was determined to get me the best possible price working day and night to market the property in every way possible. He proved to be a skilled negotiator both in the sale of my house and the purchase of my new property. The process from beginning to end was truly seamless thanks to Cory!
