I’m a townie. I wasn’t born in Guelph, but we moved here when I was 3. I love this city and everything it stands for. Sustainability, agriculture, education, and constant change and improvement. But the biggest one is community. People in this city genuinely care about each other and about the city itself. A city with a small town feel. Industry, a top-notch University and the lowest vacancy rate in Ontario. Guelph is amazing, and truly a great place to invest your money.
I wanted to be a lot of things growing up. When I was very young, I wanted to be a veterinarian. Then someone explained that being a veterinarian does not simply entail rolling around with puppies all day. I got a little older and wanted to play in the NBA. One look at my less than imposing physical stature and you’ll understand why that didn’t happen.
Then, when my mom Pauline (she’s also on this site and I can't recommend her highly enough) got into real estate when I was 12, I watched her fall in love with the trade. I watched her work passionately and diligently for her clients and for herself and thought, “you know, I could do that too.”
I finished my education, got my Honours Bachelor of Commerce and approached my mom about joining the family business. She laughed at me. She told me to go get some real world sales experience. So I did. I worked in sales in consumer packaged goods for a handful of companies, the last of which was Pepsi Frito-Lay where I enjoyed a brief, but decorated career. I was offered a management position and reached a crossroads– do I jump headlong into a corporate career or do I pursue my dream of being self-employed and living the most fulfilling life I can?
Seeing as how you’re reading this bio on a real estate brokerage website, I think you know which path I chose. I joined the Guelph real estate board in 2009, haven’t looked back and have enjoyed learning and growing every day since. Well, not physically growing. Unfortunately.
Every real estate transaction is different. Every person is different. I'm a chameleon. I tailor my approach to the needs of each individual who trusts me with handling their largest financial asset and I don't take that responsibility lightly. I'm a fun, laidback person by nature, but can be as aggressive as needed when the situation calls for it. I've been called very intuitive by more than one client in knowing what they wanted/needed before they even realized it. My one and only goal is to ensure that you are as satisfied with your experience with me as possible. Your best interests are my only priority. I am not motivated by money, I never have been. If you take care of your clients, then your business will take care of itself.
Real estate can be fun. Let me show you how.
Scott was an incredible realtor for us. He took the time to really get to know what we were looking for, and was patient with us as it took some time for our dream house to come onto the market. Never once did we feel pressured to make a decision quickly or to settle for second best. As a result, Scott lead us to the perfect home and was thorough and knowledgeable through the negotiation process. It was a pleasure to deal with Scott and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to both buyers and sellers alike.
Fantastic customer service! Scott Robert went way over and above to help me find what I wanted and to seal the deal. He's very down to earth and honest. Easy to work with and full of great advice/ideas.
Scott is just an amazing person. He's a great listener paying attention to your needs and requirements. Scott is not afraid to go outside the box and offer suggestions he believes may be in the best interest of his clients based on his original assessment. By going outside the box and in having me allowing that, I was able to find the perfect condominium that I've been living in since. I'm very happy that I followed Scott's vision and kept an open mind. Michel Beauvais
