Specializing in Puyallup, Tacoma, and all of Pierce County. I love working with buyers and sellers of classic homes. High Tech Tools with High Touch service. Let me open the door for you.
Areas of Expertise
Specializing in selling homes in Tacoma, Puyallup and Greater Pierce County. Classic homes are my passion and I truly enjoy working with buyers and sellers of Craftsman era homes. The Tacoma and Puyallup markets have a wonderful inventory of historic homes for buyers to choose from. Being the western most point for the Northern Pacific Railroad in the late 19th. century Tacoma is lucky to have many homes of great historical and architectural value.
If you are looking for home with some charm and character or perhaps that fixer that you just have to restore I welcome the opportunity to assist you.
If your home is different and you want a real estate agent that understands how to market homes to sell in today’s market we should sit down and discuss how your home will be marketed to the people who will appreciate it.
If you are looking to find an agent in the Tacoma, Puyallup, and Pierce County areas to handle a referral I am looking forward to discussing how I can help you. Please give me a call or send an email. I will make sure that your clients are treated with the absolute most professional care. I work hard daily to earn your referrals.
Testimonials and Other Kind Words
My husband is skeptical of most salespeople, especially realtors. He usually thinks he knows more and often he does! Scott Cowan has convinced him that some realtors can be believed and trusted. Not through talk, but through actions – the many, many hours he has spent with us looking at ever...y imaginable house, discussing their pros and cons in detail and helping us determine and find the right fit for us in every way – financially, emotionally, physically. Scott is very knowledgeable and has myriad contacts in every aspect of home buying and selling whom he will consult and recommend as needed. We always felt completely informed at every step of our home search. We were also selling a house during the worst time in the market. Scott marketed our home in every imaginable way, held several open houses, spread the word about our home with other realtors and again, always kept us informed about what was happening. Scott is also a genuinely nice guy. He is easy to talk to, listens carefully to understand your goals and desires and then works tirelessly to see that everything is done to achieve them. He honestly seemed to care more about our happiness than making a sale! Scott’s bottom line is “It has to be in your family’s best interest, not mine” and he really lives up to this. Both Steve and I will be using Scott as our realtor from now on and have no hesitation in recommending him highly to anyone we know. Sincerely, Liz Paterson and Steve Harmon Tacoma, WA January 7, 2010
My wife and I had been looking at places online and trying to work out the mathematics on finding a place that "looked" right for us, while also being in a neighborhood we would be comfortable in and within our means if we had to drop to a single income. We were avoiding using an agent as much as possible, since we viewed them as salespersons. Cue a suggestion from a friend of ours who knew we were on the lookout for a home to purchase, he referred us to Scott Cowan whom had helped our friend buy a home. Our friend also explained how he hated the whole process, the searching, the offers, dealing with agents, all of it. This friend also said that Scott Cowan was empathetic to that and understood, and was able to take the brunt of all the issues and explain everything for our friend. Our friend told us that Scott would take care of us. We are glad we took up his suggestion, because he was absolutely right! Scott has been nothing short of awesome! He has always been available for phone calls, questions, even driving from Tacoma to Renton and Seattle at the drop of a hat. He was very sensitive to the fact that we were first-time home buyers, with my wife being pregnant, and did a very thorough and professional job in sharing with us the way the process works and things to keep in mind. Other than his very warm personality and great sense of humor, he always stressed two things. If we weren't happy with him or the job he was doing, we should fire him - and don't buy a house just to buy a house or get things over with, we need to buy a house that we were in love with and fit us financially, emotionally, and practically. We are very happy with the job that Scott did for us, I'm sure that if we had asked him to bend over backwards for us he would have tried his best. Any sales or purchases we make in the future, we will be in touch with Scott and we won't hesitate to suggest him to anyone we know. Andrew & Stacy Davis Fife, WA
“I have known Scott for a number of years beginning with our working together @ Starbucks Coffee Company. Our roles began in the same group and then diversified into different roles within IT but we have kept in close contact. Scott has always been enthusiastic in all of his endeavors and works very hard with a strong customer service ethic. His attention to detail and willingness to always learn something new and take his personal knowledge to the next step allows him to bring a high level of skill to any interaction. Knowing Scott as I do, I would not ever hesitate to recommend him as your next realtor." J.Hunger Edmonds, WA
“I've known Scott for many years, and have had countless opportunities to witness his qualities. As a Realtor, he's someone you can trust to recommend what best meets your needs, as well as what you want. He doesn't work from the standpoint of what makes money for him, but rather an honest care for what will make the happiest customer. I can honestly recommend him as an agent you can trust to give you accurate information and creative ideas.” T Phillips, Marysville, WA
“My wife and I are always looking for real estate investment opportunities. We live in San Jose, CA, so Scott is our eyes and ears in the Seattle/Tacoma area. Scott has a passion for what he does. His passion and energy combine to make him a valuable asset to anyone looking to buy a home or investment property in his region.” K Camozzi, San Jose, CA
