"Melanie Cogan from the East Hills office was fantastic. She was always available for questions and went out of her way to get things done. She also shared resources to help me empty and clean the house before closing. She made this whole stressful process a breeze. I can't recommend her more highly!"
"I recently introduced my cousin to Liza Bendett from The Scout Residential Team. She was looking for a home in Roslyn and I knew that Scout had a good pulse on the market and that she would be professional and accommodating. My cousin was so happy with Liza’s expertise and knowledge."
"Melanie and Liza of the Scout Residential team did an *awesome* job for us. Not once, but TWICE, confirmed buyers pulled out of our deal to sell our East Hills home. Both times, the ladies pulled a rabbit out of a hat (and saved us much stress) by somehow replacing them with a different buyer before we even had a chance to get upset. They were professional, incredibly responsive, and nice! We coulRead MoreRead Less
