Simon is a registered building designer and project manager and licensed real estate agent, with nearly two decades of experience in designing, renovating and buying homes in Brisbane and Sunshine Coast.
Many of you will know Simon as a Multi-Award Winning Building Designer on the Sunshine Coast and Brisbane as Principal Designer in his practice – SSB Design Studio. Frequently clients, especially those who have bought property to renovate, have said to him “I wish you had been with me when we purchased this property……..we probably wouldn’t have bothered….it is way out of our knowledge base!”. As a Licenced Real Estate Agent and always looking for new challenges, the opportunity to become a Buyers Agent was just too much of a draw card. Partnering with his mother Sue, Scott Properties Group was initiated. Many people are usually time poor and have tried and failed to get the right property at the right price in the right location within the right time-frame. As a Property Buyers Agent all this is taken care of by Simon and the team at SPG, and he gets the pleasure of working with people with genuine needs and wants be it a primary place of residence or an investment property. This is not just a job to Simon but a work lifestyle encompassing all that has intrigued him in property and the building process since he was a very young boy building meccano and bigger than Ben Hur structures with lego throughout the house, even up the stairs and in the garden! Now all those years of experience can be put together to give SPG the leading edge as Buyers Agents.
When assessing a property to buy, the building designer in Simon looks for elements such as floor plan flow, natural light and renovation potential, while the buyer agent in Simon looks at price, negotiation and strategy aspects.
Simon has also been a property investor since 2011, and has done many renovations to manufacture capital growth by modernising to add value without over capitalising.
Over a long period of time Sue has had the pleasure of working with many home buyers and investors here in Australia, Europe & the Middle East. Her decision to partner with her son Simon as a Property Buyers’ Agent was a no-brainer for her as she can indulge in her passion for all genre of property, working one on one with clients and liaising with great professional partners involved in the complete buying process. As a Real Estate Sales Consultant, she saw first-hand the challenges that buyers have. So often they have told her that they found the buying process stressful, confusing, time consuming and complex. As a Buyers Agent this is all taken away from her clients clients and she together with the team at SPG get the pleasure of walking her clients through the complete process from finding relevant properties to view, to negotiating on their behalf and seeing the smiles on their face when the keys are handed over. Being completely independent of all real estate agents Sue work entirely for the benefit of her clients with an experienced team and professional partners. Customer Service is not limited to office hours and being available 7 days a week, makes this process for her clients more personal and enjoyable. As one of her previous real estate work colleagues said “Oh you must just love everyday going out on a very expensive shopping trip with the passion you have for property!” Can’t argue with that!
Sue has been a property investor for over 25 years in the UK and Australia and has always managed to make great property purchase decisions with a mix of single dwellings and small complex apartments.
