I’m so grateful for your help locating and purchasing a home in Damascus.  You took the time to show me several houses, with no pressure to make a decision.  As a result, I ended up with the house that was just right for me.  The real estate transaction was straightforward and went very smoothly.  I’ve bought many houses over the years, and this was one of my better experiences with a real estate agent.   I felt that you were truly representing my interests.
Thank you.

We just want to say a big “Thank You” for helping us through the whole home buying process.  This was our first experience purchasing a home through a realtor and we had no idea what to expect or what needed to be done.  You explained each step to us and guided us through the whole process-from making an offer, to home inspection, to closing.   Because we have been in the area less than a year, we especially appreciated your recommendations on who to use to take care of the things that needed to be done.  Your attention to detail, patience in explaining procedures and processes to us, and the fact that you either always answered your phone or called us back in less than 24 hours when we left a message is a true testament to your dedication to customer satisfaction, You have a great attitude and we feel blessed to have had the opportunity to work with you and we love our new home!  We will highly recommend you to anyone that needs a realtor/agent in the future.  Again, thank you for all of your help.

I could not have made a better choice when I selected to trust Scott Paterson as my representing agent, he is absolutely amazing!!! He is very dedicated, diligent, a genuinely sincere professional, family focused, a person of high principles and conviction and he is just absolutely personable and enjoyable to work with. Scott truly places the best interest of his clients first and foremost. Scott is always accessible, friendly, and optimistic and he worked through his entire vacation to help with the purchase of my dream home. Additionally, I very quickly discovered that Scott only surrounds himself with people that demonstrate the same degree of excellence, as he referred me to a closing attorney, home inspector and exterminating professional I found myself just as satisfied with them and their services. It is for all of these reasons that Scott will continue to excel as a representing agent and will continue to make dreams come true for families! I cannot thank him enough for everything that he did to make my dreams come true! I will be forever grateful and will do anything I can to help him to become well-known and successful in this area. He is a quality professional and you will love working with Scott!!!!

 Lyn and I want to thank you again for all you did to make our dream of owning a mountain home a reality. We will be forever grateful for your hard work and knowledge in this process. Our living so far away added an extra level of difficulty, which you handled easily and gracefully.

 If anyone asks us you’re the man to talk to about buying or selling in that area.

 Again, thank you thank you thank you!

I just wanted to thank you so much for all your help in the purchase of my new home.  You went above and beyond what anyone could expect from a Realtor.  I totally feel that without every thing you did, I would have not been able to buy my new home.  I know what a great job you did for me and anyone wishing to purchase a home would be in great hands working with you.

                Your friend and very satisfied customer,

We knew where we wanted to live out the rest of our lives and Scott worked diligently with us for over three (3) months to find our dream home in the area we love so much.  Even though he was new to the area, he was willing to travel all over Smyth and Grayson counties to help us find exactly what we were looking for.  When we found our dream home, Scott worked closely with us and our lender to enable us to realize that dream.  No matter what he was doing, he stayed in constant contact with us to guide us through the entire process, which in today’s market is challenging at best.  Even though at times I probably drove him crazy, he was willing to listen and calm my fears.  We would recommend Scott to anyone who is buying or selling a home because he really knows his business and I believe he truly cares about his clients and has only their best interest at heart.  In the world we live in today that is hard to find.

To Mr. Scott Paterson-
We Are writing to say thank you for representing us in our recent home sale. Your knowledge of real estate helped us to place our home on the market not only at the right time, but to be able to get what we wanted from a buyer. Our home was listed for less than two weeks and you and your staff worked hard to help our family by having showings late in the mornings to reduce the stress on our infant and her daily schedule. Having you working for us we never had to give any though about what could go wrong. You had all of the paperwork ready and any question answered that came up. At our settlement you were by our side the whole way and made sure that we understood what we were receiving and that all legal papers were correct. You even offered financial advice after settlement was completed to be sure that we receive the most out of our settlement.

Sincerely,The Dichter Family




To Whom It May Concern,

Scott Paterson (Paterson’s Preferred Properties) is our real estate agent and has been for 12 years. We are very pleased with him and his service that he has provided. Scott is an efficient and reliable person. He has handled many properties for us and has done so on a timely basis. One that he recently handled for us was located on 4890 Dennis Monnett Road, Prince Frederick, MD. He has also assisted us with a property search in Hawaii. His professionalism is beyond compare. We appreciate all that he has done for us and will continue to do for us in the future. We would never consider using another agent for our needs.

My husband, Ken and I would like to extend our utmost, sincere appreciation to your company. The professionalism, patience, courteous, educated advice and hard working service extended to us, went above and beyond our expectations.

Being new to the “retirement” arena, we found it was time for us to sell our beautiful home and downsize to a smaller one, out of state. Time was of the essence and we had placed our trust in another realtor and listed with them. Sadly, to say, they wasted two whole months of our time, not to mention the cost of paying a “double mortgage” (ouch).

Fortunately for us, we were able to dismiss (to put it lightly) this realtor, and found it hard to trust another. The situation looked bleak, as we did not want to waste any more time or money, but knew we needed to sell.

Then our prayers were answered-out of nowhere; we received a call from Scott Paterson reassuring us if we listed with them, they would sell our home. Being the professional he is, he came by within the next two hours. He set up his laptop and began his presentation to familiarize us on Paterson’s Preferred Properties background, strategies, huge advertising area (not just the tri-county), and the multi-million dollar sales.

It was the best move, financially, we ever made. We trusted Scott and enjoyed his eagerness to ensure we would not only be happy, but very satisfied. He worked hard and kept the doors of communication open at every step of the way. Even when he attended a week long, out-of-county class to advance his education value, he kept abreast of his clients and communicated with them. We were not just another MLS number to him!!

We liked many aspects of the way they do business, but the best, was the wide circumference of their advertising area. We had people from GA, College Park, MD, Fairfax, VA, and who knows elsewhere to come look at our beautiful home. Another great tool was the virtual tour- what a difference it made. Each home is featured as the “Home of the Week” and we feel Paterson’s Preferred Properties truly stands way above the others. The Paterson’s slogan: “Valuable, Personalized Service.” They believe in a simple rule of real estate—–Sell each home as if it was your own!

Thank you Paterson’s Preferred Properties, you have helped us to take one more giant step toward reaching our retirement goal, in a timely manner.

Dear Scott:

Thank you so much for your graciousness and professionalism that you showed to us in the recent sale of our house. It was truly a rewarding experience and one in which you displayed a desire to keep us informed at all times and always promptly returned our phone calls. Your ability to work with all parties was impressive. The advertising that you gave to our property was outstanding and should we have the opportunity, we would very much like to refer other prospective customers to you in the future.

Thanks again for the timely sale of our property!

Dear Scott,

Thank you very much for selling our house. Our previous listing agent let us down where you have prevailed. Your professional marketing and communication skills were outstanding. Had we not left the area we most certainly would be using your services again.

Dear Scott:

Al and I want to thank you for all of your efforts concerning the sale of our former home at 510 Meadow Lane, Prince Frederick, Maryland. As you know, we listed this property with your real estate company. During the four months between listing and sale, the house was shown to prospective buyers at least once, and more often twice, every week-end; and several times on weekdays as well. This would not have been the case had you not been actively working on our behalf. Now today, we are going to settlement and moving immediately thereafter. We truly appreciate your advice and the very professional manner in which you dealt with us. We would not hesitate to highly recommend you to anyone desiring to sell their property.
