About Scott Markham

Hey Folks, Thanks for checking out my Zillow page! As a retired Firefighter, I'm no stranger to helping people in times of need, which is why I chose to pursue a second career in the real estate business when I retired. Granted…buying your dream home is not a life or death situation, but it is an extremely important decision, and definitely a life changing event!  I would appreciate the opportunity to help you with your real estate needs, whether you're buying or selling, I will passionately advocate for your best interest, will dedicate the time to meet all your real estate needs, and ensure your experience is as smooth as you always had hoped it would be.

My approach is customized to each of my clients and their wishes, whether you like texting, email or phone calls, keeping the process convenient for you during your buying or selling process, is my top priority. Please don't hesitate to give me a call! I look forward to working with you.
