"His passion is contagious."
Warning! if you are thinking of picking Scott Gleason as your realtor there are a few things that you should be aware of:
He will probably sell your property in less time and get you more than what you would get with other realtors, giving you the added problem of finding a good use for the extra money in your pocket.
The passion that he has for his work might be contagious, and you might end up actually enjoying what could otherwise be a difficult process, like the sale of your home. In fact you might end up thinking that selling your home is a pleasant, easy and profitable business.
No matter how big your social network is, you will feel dwarfed by Scott's! He knows everyone in town, and has easy access to professionals who can assist you at every step of the way.
It won't be easy to get rid of him as he will stick with you well after the sale is closed, to assist you with the aftermath, and to make sure that every piece falls in the right place.

"My last sale with Scott was $100,000 over list."
Scott really understands the market and educates his clients for selling and buying homes. He showed me marketing material and recommended a list price, and we got a full list offer within the first 10 days on the market. We highly recommend Scott if you’re looking to buy or sell a home. His processes, his understanding, and his knowledge of the local market will help you sell a home very quickly. If you’re buying, he’s great at negotiating and getting you the price that you want.

“I truly felt he was working hard for me.”
Scott is simply outstanding! The most important thing is that he is a great listener. He took the time to understand what I was looking for and why. He used his knowledge and experience as a guide, but not to override my needs. He is knowledgeable, creative, responsive, and energetic.
I really appreciated that he was always respectful of my time and prompt for viewings, inspections, closing, etc. Where possible, he scouted locations ahead of time to assess suitability and provided pros and cons of various options to focus on locations that were a good fit.
Amidst some setbacks, Scott was always optimistic and had a great sense of humor! I would use Scott again for any future transactions in a heartbeat and highly recommend him.

“Invaluable experience and understanding of the local market.”
We used Scott Gleason to sell our home and he was excellent. Scott not only held our hand every step of the way but also carried us across the stream at every turn. His experience and understanding of the local housing market were invaluable in setting a pricing strategy, staging our home (even contributing a personal item from his home for the staging), promoting the listing, and conducting the open house.
Scott was a constant conduit of communication, promptly responding to our many texts, emails, and phone calls as well as communicating with the seller’s agent and attorneys. We would highly recommend Scott to anyone who is in the market buying or selling their home.

“Scott saved the day.”
Scott is simply the best agent I have worked with in my long life of buying houses as part of a military family. He goes above and beyond to ensure not only that you buy a home that meets all your needs but also that it suits the lifestyle you wish to enjoy. He is an ambassador for Westfield and went so far as making sure I knew ways to involve myself in the community, great restaurants, and trusted local vendors to utilize.
Buying or selling a home is a joyous, yet emotional experience, and you need someone on your side to ensure you make the right decisions when choosing a home and negotiating the purchase. He is honest yet fair and keeps a cool head during times of tension, coming up with creative solutions to any problems encountered. Our negotiations stalled and Scott saved the day, allowing me to write this review from a home I adore. If I buy or sell in Westfield, or the surrounding communities, Scott will be my agent.

“You won’t find a better agent.”
From our first meeting, Scott’s professionalism and deep knowledge of the area stood out. We had a strong feeling Scott had our best interests at heart and it gave us a great sense of comfort.
It was not easy to find our dream home and it turned out to be a long search. What we really appreciated from Scott was we never felt pressured, and he was so generous with his time. He really made this experience go smoothly and, in the end, we couldn't be happier with the house we found. You won't find a better agent.

“In a challenging market, we sold in 2 weeks."
Scott was a tremendous resource in my home selling process. We sold for 2% off list price and were in attorney review after 2 weeks, at a price point that was saturated at the time with no properties moving. Scott worked extremely well with the buyer's realtor which helped the process move along nicely.
Scott was always very prompt to return calls, emails, or texts; something that was extremely important to me in this nerve-wracking process. His online marketing was engaging and extensive, something I wanted for my property, and he exceeded expectations with this! Ultimately, I was able to sell a house that seemed nearly impossible considering the uphill battle we had on several fronts, but more importantly in the process I gained a great friend.
-Lou M., sold a home in Westfield, NJ
“We realized a much higher selling price.”
Over the years I have moved nine times, and Scott and his team are the most professional group of Realtors I have ever dealt with. He was an exemplary advisor and assisted in ways I did not expect someone in his position would take on. He made our transaction smooth and helped us add value by pointing out negative items and assisting in correcting them. Working with him added significant value and helped us realize a much higher selling price by providing buyers with an updated home. He was open and honest with us and extremely helpful; I would recommend him highly to anyone.
-Marty R., sold a home in Garwood, NJ
“Scott gave us insights no other Realtor did.”
This was our third transaction with Scott as our Realtor, which should tell you all you need to know. He won our trust on the first transaction by giving us insights into the process that no other Realtor did; it was a small detail but something no one else had mentioned and made all the difference for us.
Scott and his team brought some great ideas to differentiate our property when it came to selling. We heartily recommend Scott if you are looking for a Realtor. Scott has always gone out of his way for our family and if I move back to NJ, he'll be one of the first people I’ll call.
-Allister R., sold a home in Westfield, NJ
“Highest selling price ever in my community.”
I was a first-time home seller and didn't know much about the process except for finding a real estate agent. I contacted several, and as soon as I met Scott, I knew he was going to be my best choice.
As my agent, he explained the selling process in detail from beginning to end. He provided me with a to-do list that I followed and listed the house. I received 13 offers and Scott helped me with selecting the best offer. He negotiated an outstanding contract, and I was able to sell my home with the highest selling price ever in my community.
Scott always answered my calls and answered any question I had. Scott is an excellent real estate agent and individual that is always looking out for your best interest. I will always be grateful to Scott and his team. If you are looking to sell or a buy home, look no further than Scott Gleason. You will not regret your decision.

“Scott is in a class of his own.”
I’ve worked with several real estate agents, and I can confidently say Scott is in a class of his own. This sale was a particularly challenging situation for me; it was an estate sale for my mother’s house, and I live in another state. Some of the things I enjoyed most about working with Scott were that he’s extremely communicative, knows the market, and has a deep network of professionals to help get a house ready for sale. Most importantly he always acted with integrity and gave great counsel.
We developed an approach on how to prepare the house for sale and he then helped coordinate what needed to be done. A moment I’ll never forget was a couple days before the house was set to go on the market, I was at the house doing a final clean out. Scott showed up, not in his usual smart business attire, but in shorts and a t-shirt and started to wash some exterior windows—wow! He goes the extra mile and tailors his services to meet the needs of his client. You can’t ask for more than that. We received multiple offers over list and Scott helped me with selecting the best one.

“Sensitive to a family selling their home of 50 years.”
Scott Gleason was extremely helpful and a consummate professional while helping my father and I with the sale of our home. Scott certainly went above and beyond what was expected of a real estate professional. Scott proved to be very sensitive to the emotions of a family selling their home of over 50 years. My father is 93 years old, and Scott went out of his way to always make sure he understood what was going on and was included in all decisions.
Scott suggested and coordinated the use of various professionals needed to aid in the sale of our home including stagging experts, plumbers, handymen, and painters. Scott always made himself available for discussions, suggestions, or advice. Scott even followed up with us after the sale to keep in touch and find out how we were all doing after our move. I would highly recommend using Scott for your next real estate transaction.
-Tom F., sold a home in Cranford, NJ
“By all measurements, the process was successful.”
I met Scott several years ago while he was helping my neighbors settle into their new home, and he left me with the impression of a realtor who knew the Westfield market and understood the property rehabilitation process. My brief conversation with Scott left a lasting impression, so when it was time to put my home on the market, I dug out his business card. Scott came to the meeting fully prepared with historical market data for properties in my section of Westfield and the range of possibilities for my property.
Although this was to be an "As Is" sale, Scott described the seemingly mundane but critical tasks such as fire safety inspection, underground storage tank sweep, etc. that would need to take place before closing. During our meeting, we set a listing price, developed a sales process timeline, established criteria for acceptable offers and most importantly, agreed on our mutual expectations of a successful sales process.
By all measurements, the process was successful. The showing process went smoothly, significant buyer interest was generated, and the transaction was completed in the planned timeframe. While there is always the potential for unexpected issues, Scott brings to the table the resources to address those issues with a calm and reliable approach. Without reservation I recommend Scott to all as an excellent realtor and trusted advisor.
-Mike S., sold a home in Westfield, NJ
“Sale within two weeks on the market.”
Scott and his team provided excellent service when we put our house up for sale in early 2020. Despite the pandemic kicking in right after the sales agreement was signed, Scott kept things moving along to a successful on-time closing on May 1.
In terms of details, Scott recommended a good price which was in line with our thoughts and resulted in a sale within just two weeks of going on the market. His staging team helped us clean up the house to appeal to buyers, and the photography presented the home very favorably. We used several recommended professionals from Scott, including the attorney who handled our end of the sale.
Overall, Scott provided excellent client service, responding quickly when we had questions, issues, or concerns—even to the point of helping me move a dryer up the basement stairs! I would definitely recommend Scott to anyone looking to sell or buy a home in our area.
-David T., sold a home in Scotch Plains, NJ
“I had a buyer in less than a week.”
Before I had Scott, my property sat on the market for 6 months with another realtor. I brought in Scott, and we spent a few weeks getting the house ready according to his recommendations. He took care of virtually everything for me as I was living outside of the area. The house hit the market and I had a buyer in less than a week. I recommend Scott to anyone selling a home; he does his research, puts in the time, gets things ready, and then makes it happen. I bumped into another one of Scott's clients who said, "We started with a real estate broker and ended with a friend."
-Michael R., sold a home in Cranford, NJ
“He saved us over $60,000.”
We bought a new house and sold our old house with Scott, and I couldn't be happier. His negotiation practices saved us upwards of $60,000 between the two homes, and his contacts for stagers, attorneys, and inspectors were impeccable. We not only got into our dream home under budget, but he treated us like family. A stand-up professional and new friend.
-Priscilla G., sold a home in Rahway and bought a home in Cranford, NJ
“Within days, we had several offers.”
After interviewing several Real Estate brokers, I selected Scott Gleason to handle my home sale. Scott impressed me with his thorough presentation and his track record. Due to an accident I had to postpone the sale for over eight months. During that time Scott kept in touch, and abreast of the market conditions. Once we got back on track Scott forged ahead and guided me through the sales process. Within days of listing, we had several offers to review. Scott reviewed all the offers in detail, explained the plusses and minuses of each and helped me select the best offer for me. We were in contract in a day and hope to close within a month. Scott delivered what he promised—attention to detail, strong marketing, and good advice. I highly recommend him.
-Bob D., sold a home in Westfield, NJ
"Scott has your back."
Scott breaks the mold of the "typical real estate agent." He consistently lives up to the highest standards in every dimension a client longs for: integrity, professionalism, extensive experience, knowledge and expertise, intelligence, attentiveness, respect and courtesy, network of contacts throughout related fields such as home repair and improvement, humor, positive attitude, emotional support, and financial acumen. Best of all he treats every client as a unique individual with their own unique needs and has the resources and expertise to respond accordingly. He markets the 1954 Cape Cod with the same dedication and energy with which he markets the 1988 4-bedroom Colonial and the 2013 6-bedroom, 4000 square-foot mansion.
Real estate business is a magnet for charlatans, incompetents, dabblers, fly-by-nights, and newbies. I’m old, cranky, have high standards, and have a generally low opinion of most so-called professionals in most fields these days. My advice is: don’t waste your time with the Really Nice Gal who is the niece of your neighbor’s hairdresser. Scott is a solid competent experienced professional who will never leave you thinking around 1:00 a.m., “Jeez, maybe I should have gone with..." Sleep soundly, Scott has your back.
-Leslie T., sold a home in Edison, NJ
“Scott likes people and helping people.”
About a decade ago Scott Gleason did me and my wife a favor with nothing foreseeable in it for him. It impressed us, and we recently hired him as our real estate agent to sell our home. We moved across the country within a few days of the house going on the market, and Scott cheerfully did everything from turning off the lights to hiring persons to make needed repairs following the inspection.
He knows his business. His recommendations to increase the likelihood of a fast sale and large return on home improvements not only made sense, but they worked. He recommended ways to make the house more attractive to the buyer and took innovative steps to get the interest of other real estate agents and correctly price our home.
Scott strove to make the contract a win-win proposition for both buyer and seller. He went the extra mile to smooth out hurdles and concerns for both parties. Scott has a clear passion and enthusiasm for his work and helping people. It was a pleasure working with him and having him on our team.
-Frank E., sold a home in Westfield, NJ
“Without his efforts we could not have purchased our home.”
In the middle of the pandemic, we wanted to move into an over-55 community in Union County NJ. Finding any property in north Jersey isn't easy, and finding an adult community near Westfield is particularly tough.
Scott was the only Realtor who offered to work proactively to find us a suitable property. Rather than inundate us with listings, he filtered what he sent us and commented on the appropriateness of each home. In addition, he identified communities we found desirable and proactively reached out to current homeowners.
You expect a Realtor to help you negotiate the price, and he certainly did. The inspection report uncovered a serious issue, and Scott spent considerable time reviewing the issue and identifying a quality compromise that everyone was pleased with. Without his efforts we could not have purchased the home.
Scott was with us the entire time ensuring that the town inspections were completed, the input to the title company was completed in a timely manner and when necessary, he worked with the attorneys to move the process along. Scott was an excellent asset to us in finding the perfect home.
