See how Scott's unique expertise can help you buy or sell with ease
“My husband and I can't say enough great things about Scott, he was patient with us as we changed our minds on what we were looking for in a home and where we wanted to live. This being our first home purchase, we had endless questions that were always promptly answered. We never felt pressured into anything, and Scott always understood when we were just too busy for open houses/tours and needed a break from searching. We now have a beautiful home in our dream neighborhood, and that never would have happened without Scott helping us structure the offer in the right way. Seriously, use Scott to help you purchase your home, you won't be disappointed!“

Selling a home is a lot like skiing downhill. You know where you’re starting, and you know where you want to go, but between start and finish there may be unseen obstacles to work around. Luckily, with Scott as your faithful guide, you’ll have someone who knows the fastest way to the finish line.
There are numerous reasons you may be planning to sell your house, and Scott is an expert at navigating the complex emotional and organizational process of successfully listing and selling a property. To start, he’ll get to know your goals and priorities for the sale — your timeline, what kind of return on investment you’re looking for, how much home prep you’re willing and able to do beforehand (and more) — to align with your goals and build a successful team dynamic between you.
From there, Scott will help you prepare your home for the market, offering helpful suggestions for repairs and maintenance work that will get buyers in the door and increase your possible listing price. In particular, Scott will arrange for professional photos to be taken of your property, and can offer recommendations for staging and other upgrades that will increase your home’s value.
If you’re ready to sell, but your home is in need of some updates, the Windermere Ready program can help. Through this program, sellers will receive high-impact repair and renovation suggestions from their broker to improve their property before listing. These repairs are designed to appeal to buyers and help your home sell faster — at no upfront cost to you. Windermere Ready can cover up to $50,000 in repairs and renovations, increasing the value of your property and your final return on investment.
As a lifetime resident of the Pacific Northwest, Scott is also dialed into the local housing market. With his insider knowledge and years of experience, he’ll research current housing trends and local competition, to give you a clear analysis and understanding of the market in your area. With this information, you’ll be able to accurately list your property for its full market value, while ensuring that buyers stay motivated to explore your listing.
Throughout the process, Scott will market your property through multiple channels, including open houses, broker open houses (for industry professionals), scheduled tours, print materials like brochures and one-sheets, and digital tools like email newsletters to Scott’s network and remote video tours.
Once you’ve received an offer (or multiple offers), Scott will vet the buyers for you, making sure you choose the offer that is best for you. If further negotiation is necessary, Scott will deftly protect your interests and keep communication lines open for a swift, smooth sale.
“Scott Burbidge is an outstanding agent. I was not only impressed by how much he knew—he contacted all the local vendors to do the necessary repair work on my home—but above all else, by his work ethic. He was always there for me, going so far as to help me load up my garage trash one afternoon. I recommend Scott Burbidge enthusiastically and without reservation.“
