Without my fantastic clients, I could not do what I love to do! I am beyond grateful for their kind and honest reviews!
Scott was my realtor for the sale of a condo in Virginia. I live out of state so Scott helped with arranging and coordinating with estate sale, painting, carpeting, and cleaning contractors. I couldn’t have done it without him and everything went flawlessly. Scott was not only knowledgeable about real estate, he was confident and reassuring throughout the process and always willing to step in and head off potential problems. I recommend him highly.

As a first-time home buyer, I am so lucky to have found Scott! At one point, I had decided to stop looking for a house for a couple months. He gave me the space I needed to consider if home ownership was really what I wanted. Once I was ready to start looking, he kept in touch with me regularly – I never had to call him because he always called me first! He was extremely patient, explaining the various steps and real estate vernacular to me on multiple occasions. I felt like genuinely understood my concerns throughout the process, and also shared in the joy of buying my first home. He found me a BEAUTIFUL townhome that far exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend him!

Scott went above and beyond his job. I normally don’t give all 5 star reviews but I was honestly so impressed with Scott. My wife and I were lucky to find him through a referral by a friend. We were first time home buyers and Scott was very attentive to our needs. He was highly professional and took the extra time to explain the process along the way. His response time to all of our inquiries was lightning fast, which is crucial in the DMV housing market as houses come and go so quickly. I was very impressed with Scott’s knowledge of Northern Virginia. He really understood what we were after but did not simply “parrot” what we were saying. He came up with a lot of areas that we hadn’t even thought of and found us our dream home well under our budget. Scott was an amazing advocate throughout the entire process, but did an especially great job the week of our closing. We were having issues getting a hold of our mortgage lender and we were really starting to sweat. Scott took control of the situation and went above and beyond in getting a hold of everything we needed to close. I wish that I could have him as an advocate in my every day life. Scott gets the job done right. I have already recommended him to all of my family and friends looking for a home and I strongly recommend him as your Realtor.

After exhausting my search in the NYC area, I called Scott wanting to relocate to the Northern Virginia area. I told him what I wanted, the price point and what I didn’t want. Scott promptly set me up to receive the properties fitting my criteria. After sifting through the choices, I sent Scott 10 back. I had a very tight timeline and couldn’t actually come to Virginia. Within 1/2 hour, I received an email … not this one, that’s too far a commute, and so on with recommendations. I picked 7 properties and Mr. Ailing did video walkthroughs of every one of them, opening cabinets, testing water pressure and every other thing on ‘my list’ of important things. It didn’t take me long to decide and remotely, we worked on getting me into my preferred property. I am so impressed by Scott’s professionalism and his ability to work with the listing realtor, mortgage broker and title company. I couldn’t have asked for more if I’d lived across the street instead of 400 miles away. I have moved into my condo and I couldn’t be happier. I wouldn’t have been able to make this move without the endless hours Scott spent working on my purchase. When/if the time comes for me to ‘upgrade’, Scott will be my first call. Thanks so much from this very happy homeowner.

My family needed some help finding a bigger place, and we really didn’t know where to start. We had never rented from a private landlord, and we were a little overwhelmed by it all. We called Scott, and he made the process so easy. He was patient, kind, and professional. He took us to see several places, and we were able to find a place that was perfect for us. Scott helped with the application process and made sure the lease looked good. We could not have done this without him. He is such a pleasure to work with, and is always willing to answer questions. He is incredibly knowledgeable.

I hired Scott for both the selling of my primary residence and the purchase of my new home. I was nervous about taking on both a sale and a purchase at the same time. Scott assured me it could absolutely be done. Scott was phenomenal from start to finish. He started the process by putting together a very professional booklet all about the home I was selling. From comps in my area to recommendations to a detailed description of the whole process from start to finish. His company also uses a professional stager which was fantastic and I truly believe gave us a leg up over other houses on the market. I couldn’t believe it was my house after the staging was completed and all the pictures were taken! Amazing. Scott was very honest about the pricing of my home upfront. He wanted to price it fairly but competitively. I am so glad I trusted his judgement. I got two offers within a couple of weeks of being on the market and we were under contract shortly after. He also had the foresight to know when to start the home shopping process. The timing had to be just right and he nailed it. My hubby and I shopped for our home online on Scott’s recommended sites as well as the listings he sent to us periodically. He took us out to look at each and every home we wanted to see, and had information packets available on each one before we even stepped inside. I love the fact that anytime I had a question or concern, day or night, he was extremely responsive. He always got back to me within hours, not days. He was always ready with whatever resources we needed from phone numbers to title companies, to email addresses and phone numbers to set up utility services. He knew which situations were time critical and needed to be acted on quickly and communicated with me promptly on them. He was by my side and always on time every step of the way. If you are looking for an honest, no b.s. Realtor who will sell your home quickly, this is your guy. If you want a realtor who will trek through a brutally hot summer day to show you 4 or 5 houses in a day and never once complain, this is your guy. I have a 3 year old, so another bonus is he is funny and GREAT with children. Hire Scott to sell your home, hire him to find you the home of your dreams, you won’t regret it!

We had a real partner in our home buying and selling experience with Scott. We had a partner that truly listened to our wants and needs in detail. It was quite a journey, but he was there all the way!
Craig C.Reston, VA
Scott was able to sell our house through a down market in our area. He was very professional and his products are top notch. He hosted multiple Open Houses and was available anytime we needed him. We will be using him when we return to the area to buy our home.

I spoke with several realtors before moving forward with selling my house. Scott’s presentation at our initial meeting was the most professional; however, at the same time he made me feel more comfortable about the process. We may have only just met, but he made it seem as though we were old friends. Scott had great recommendations for staging and prepping the house for sale. His market knowledge led to realistically setting my expectations about what my home was worth. This is extremely important as in my previous experience, realtors often feed your desire for your house to get a great price and go to market with a price that is actually too high. This in turns leads to the stress of your house remaining on the market for longer than you had hoped (not to mention the task of keeping it “show” ready at all times while you are still trying to live there) and eventually reducing the price as you get more desperate to sell. I’m happy to report that I had six showing on the first day, one of which resulted in an offer that became a sale. Could not recommend anyone more highly.
Mark O.Leesburg, VA
Scott was more responsive than any realtor I’ve ever worked with. He seemed to really care that I found the right place. I would defiantly work with him again in the future and recommend him to my friends and family.
Grace G.Ashburn, VA
We have just closed on our new home in Sterling, VA and I highly recommend using Scott Ailing as your realtor. I never once doubted his expertise, dedication to finding our forever home, and loyalty to our success. Scott pays attention to every detail of the house buying process. We could not be happier with our experience. Scott is trustworthy, highly professional, and a lot of fun!
Jennifer Q.Sterling, VA
I have worked with many Realtors in my life through a variety of different transactions, home sale(s), purchases, rentals, etc. most have their hands full and multitask to the inth degree making me feel I am nowhere near a priority to them. Then there’s Scott. He’s amazing. When I emailed or called him he was ON it- VERY responsive. I hemmed and hawed and agonized over every process and his patience was rocksteady. He took the time to put together an awesome little booklet that spelled out EVERYTHING about my home from front to back and everything in between. An easy going Realtor with a great sense of humor- that’s a bonus! I would definitely recommend Scott Ailing to anyone who wants a Realtor on their A-Game. You can’t go wrong!
Lisa P.Centreville, VA
Scott continues to be an amazing realtor for me as I embark on my second home search with him. He is thorough, helpful and extremely knowledgeable. In addition, he has a wonderful personality and great sense of humor! All necessary components needed when you have to do something as arduous as looking for a home. I tell everyone about him. I wouldn’t work with anyone else!
Amanda B.Herndon, VA
Scott was great. He actually listened to what we were looking for and was very knowledgeable of the area . Even after we found our place he called a few weeks later to check up on us. Thanks Scott!
Anthony C.Centreville, VA
Scott was very accommodating and I welcomed his advice. He was willing to pick me up at the airport. He always picked up the phone on the first ring. I never had to leave a message.
Andrea W.Arlington, VA
As a fellow agent who has worked with Scott on a transaction, I have to say what a pleasure he was to work with and how dedicated he is to his job, his clients and getting the deal done! I hope to have the opportunity to work with him again, very soon!
Michelle H.Front Royal, VA
Scott’s knowledge of the housing market, neighborhoods, schools, mortgage issues and getting the best value for your money makes him an outstanding resource, whether buying or selling a home.
