Why Go Local for Real Estate?

Don’t go corporate when you can hire a local agent, giving you access to an expert who has lived and worked in a place for many years and has built social connections that can make your real estate dreams come true.

Local Knowledge

Anyone can recite facts about neighborhoods, schools, and amenities. Successful real estate agents must have a deep understanding of their community. If you have a long list of must-haves, it takes a connected professional who knows the area inside-out to address each issue. A local agent will have a sense of how the market has evolved and where it is going. They can be great resources for clients, especially when they are new to an area. 

Real Estate Documents

Scott Roat has been a Mendocino landowner, builder, and firefighter for decades. This extensive experience in the region gives him an advantage over corporate realtors. He is intimately familiar with neighborhoods, roads, waterways, weather patterns, and so much more to provide straightforward guidance to choose the location for your new life.

Deep Connections

Influencers and folks that are in-the-know surround every agent. But not all agents are part of that circle. Your agent must be connected and informed. Who can you trust for home inspections, building, interior design, lending, title and escrow, painting, gardening, plumbing, and electrical work? Buying real estate requires much more than knowing the phone number of the planning department. You need someone who can tell you the best person to talk to, when they are available, and how to get in touch with them.

These deep connections are what you get when you work with Scott. As a 12-year firefighter, Scott showed up when his community needed him most. He also relied on his fellow firefighters in moments of crisis. These are the sort of ties that build trust and reliability, qualities that are critical when making long-term decisions about moving to a new location. As a builder and a real estate broker, Scott has the experience to tell you who you can rely on to get needed services and support.

Independent and Proudly Non-Conformist   

For Scott, one of the charms of Mendocino is that this place is decidedly non-corporate. It is historically independent, offering an alternative to those who have had enough of large companies that dominate consumer products and culture. If originality and escaping what passes for “normal” is part of what draws you to the Mendocino coast, why would you start the process by going to a large corporate agency with a generic history and policies?

When buying or selling a property in one of the most beautiful locations in the country, you need a local real estate expert with knowledge and connections built over decades of public service, building, and real estate sales. You need someone who not only thinks this place is as special as you do, but who can build you a detailed, optimized plan to get you here.Do you want an independent, honest, attentive real estate broker?
