"As a new real estate investor, I was looking for an agent who was highly analytical, knowledgeable, and focused. Scott Ingram fulfilled all of my requirements and more! Scott educated me on the specifics of the real estate market and empowered me to make decisions based on all of the facts when weighing the pros and cons of a potential deal. Scott is very professional, attentive to detail and very easy to work with. He responded quickly to every email, gave me great advice, and got me the condo I was looking for at the best price. He works hard for his clients and gets results!"
"I've known Scott Ingram for a couple years as he contributed data-oriented content to a real estate news site that I operated, and his analytic expertise and comfort with crunching numbers sold me on working with him right away even though that was two years ago and I was nowhere near ready to enter the market.
I dislike 'sales'-oriented realtors and find them untrustworthy. Scott is the opposite of that, perhaps even a bit overly cautious. His background as a Chartered Accountant is obviously a huge asset vs. what you typically get from a realtor as he's always thinking about what constitutes a good value vs. how much he can talk his clients into spending. Worth every penny of his commission."
"Scott Ingram is the best real estate agent! We really appreciate his no-nonsense approach to real estate and the fact that he takes the time to educate his clients on the Toronto real estate market. After our first meeting with Scott, we felt like we had secret insider knowledge into the Toronto real estate market and were confident moving forward with our goal of purchasing a new home. Scott is always very thorough and when we were interested in a property he promptly gave us an analysis of the home, neighbourhood and comparable sales. When we found the house we wanted Scott got it done within 24 hours. He came up with an excellent strategy, gave us a ridiculously thorough rundown of all sales in the neighbourhood (at 12am) and we knew exactly what to offer on the home. Thanks to Scott we have closed on our dream home at the right price. Another noteworthy mention regarding Scott is how relatable he is. There were absolutely no sales gimmicks involved (flashy cars, expensive suits, silly pitches) - only a person who is clearly passionate about the work he does and has the expertise/ knowlegde to get the job done in a friendly and comfortable manner. We highly recommend Scott to anyone looking to buy or sell a home."

"Scott has given me sound real estate advice for years and it's been wonderful to work with him on the sale of my home. His data driven approach gives you confidence that you are making fact-based decisions. During an emotionally charged process, Scott's is a voice of reason and challenges you to step back and look at the bigger picture. With Scott's help, we were able to sell our house in under 2 days on market for the price we wanted."
"Scott impressed us with his cerebral and fact-based approach to the realities of the Toronto market, but really wowed us with his ability to understand our specific needs and use them to find us a number of suitable candidates in our house hunt. But he didn't stop there - when the purchase was underway, he was instrumental in navigating the process, helped up handle a few surprise findings during our inspection and helped us get the price down accordingly. Then post-sale, he even helped up in several ways get ready for the work needing to be done on the house. It was such a great experience, end-to-end - we were almost sad when it was over and will definitely work with Scott again."
"I was referred to Scott by a mutual friend who is also a former client of Scott's. I was a first time buyer and it was my first attempt to get into the real estate market. I had been a renter for 15 years. I was really impressed with Scott's approach from our first meeting and my opinion didn't change during the several months it took for me to find a place.
Scott put in a lot of up-front work to make sure he knew exactly what I was looking for. He provided me with a detailed analysis of what was available based on my preferences and price range. All of this was well before I saw my first open house. Scott and I saw about 20 houses together - there were a lot of houses I saw online that I liked, until I saw them in person. Scott was always the first person to offer constructive feedback about places we saw based on what I told him previously.
I put in 2 offers while working with Scott - I backed out of a bidding war in the first, and made a successful offer in the second. The customer service and value Scott provided in both were exceptional. He conducted an exhaustive search of comparable sales in the area to come up with a competitive bid, without overbidding. After my first offer, I was asked to up my bid before the offer deadline. Scott was the first to say that doing so would likely be overpaying for the property, so I walked.
Scott performed similarly exhaustive research during my second bid which was successful.
I couldn't be happier with the service I received, and I would recommend Scott without hesitation."
