I worked with Scott for many years and found him to be very detail oriented, knowlegeable, and I always relied on his expertise. Scott is not only thorough, but also easy to work with, and was always willing to take the time to discuss my concerns and respond to questions. I would welcome the opportunity to work with Scott again in the future.
Scott is an excellent business partner. He always ensured understanding and a keen knowledge of the facts prior to providing guidance and direction. He was fair and consistent and created a follwership through his excellent relationship skills. Scott was always willing to assist and share his knolwedge and experience. An outstanding leader in many ways!
Scott was great at negotiating with other businesses. He was able to determine which vendor would be able to provide the best products and services, and negotiated superior pricing contracts.
Scott is one of the most amazing leaders I encountered in my 15 years with American Express. He makes every attemp gain full understanding of a situation/project in order to determine the best possible ways to correct/move along with the fastest most effective results, that will work for the long term. He is up front and has the highest levels of integrity. His ability to build and maintain strong relationships is exceptional. I strongly recomend Scott for any organization
Scott has a great wealth of knowledge in his field and (exhibits) results-oriented, high-energy, hands-on professionalism... His attention to detail and dutiful respect for compliance in all regulated environments demonstrates his passion to serve customers.
The folks at Allen Tate were very friendly and accommodating, answering any questions and concerns I had ASAP. The homebuying process seemed daunting at first, but every step of the way they were able to help guide me through it. Knowing I could call and ask for help at any time was a huge relief.
Scott was a great agent to work with. Having worked with him at a large corporation for more years than either of us would like to admit, I knew how committed he was to the work he did and happily reached out to have him sell my home. As an agent he was very focused on helping me sell my house and working through all the details that arose. His focus was always on my goals and needs. The house sold fast even with some challenges that arise which were out if our control. Thank you for a great experience Scott.
Scott is a true professional. He is very thorough and organized. He responds to every call or text in an extremely prompt manner. He really understands that there's nothing more important to someone than their HOME! He goes above and beyond for his clients. I needed a lot of mold remediation work done in the crawl space under the home I was selling. Unfortunately, the buyer chose the worst of the three companies that gave estimates to do the work. They were slow and unresponsive at times. Scott knew we had a deadline and stayed on them daily until it was done! He even went over there more than once to motivate the workers and check on their progress! Thank you Scott! I love my new home on the golf course!

It was a pleasure working with Scott as he sold our Camden Road house. He was very professional and had a excellent knowledge of the Sunset Hills area. He suggested a price and we were able to accept an offer from a buyer after only 2 days on the market! He guided us through the forms that we needed in the sale and dealt with the parties involved with grace and good humor. We would highly recommend him and would use his services again.
Working with Scott Michaels was wonderful! He was always professional, fast, and there when we needed him.. We found and bought our home in just over a month! He is very knowledgeable and has a ton of resources available if you need them. He makes it a point to let you know that even after the house is sold, if he can help you, he will. I highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell your house. If you want a genuine person who is willing to be of assistance, Scott Michaels is the way to go ! :)
Scott Michaels worked with me for a whole year because I wasn’t quite sure what I wanted. He was very patient and every time he greeted me, it was with a smile on his face. He was very encouraging and when I finally found what I wanted, he got me through every step of the way. It was an excellent experience. He was very efficient and thorough and just overall impressive. I was looking for a certain type of house and I wasn’t in a hurry so he was very patient with me and really went the extra mile to get additional information about different homes. I would definitely buy another house from him and ask him again to help me sell the previous one. Thank you, Scott Michaels.
We worked with Scott in both buying and selling our houses. Right from the beginning we had an amazing experience. The whole process of selling was new to us and he guided us along the way with patience and understanding. I particularly appreciated his willingness to negotiate on our behalf and conduct the necessary research and investigation to help us make informed decisions and help us arrive at the best price both when buying and selling. I always felt he had our best interests in mind and cannot recommend him highly enough.
I can't say enough about how great it was working with Scott. He made such a long and stressful process not just smooth, but quite enjoyable. He is incredibly knowledgable and hard working and was extremely helpful in finding the house that was perfect for us. Always patient, friendly, and accessible. He was always prompt in answering any question and ensuring that I understood what was happening at every step of the way. I would 100 percent recommend him to anybody, especially those who are first time buyers.
Scott Michaels is a kind, well informed real estate professional. He did a great job helping me clarify my priorities so that I could find the perfect place to call home. His calm, collected and savvy guidance was invaluable. I highly recommend Scott!!
Scott was amazing to work with on the purchase of my townhouse! He is extremely detail oriented and had my best interest at heart when it came to negotiations. I highly recommend him as a trustworthy agent when it comes to buying or selling your home!
Ron & Clara
We would highly recommend Scott Michaels as Realtor for anyone wanting to sell their home. He does a fantastic job advertising, showing and providing feedback. A++ PROFESSIONAL!!
Scott was great. I always felt like I was important to him and finding me a house was also. I will highly recommend him to anyone to help with buying or selling a house. Camiel Bradshaw
I have lived in Washington, D.C. for the last six years, and have rented out my townhouse during that entire time, having great luck along the way. After much thought and consideration, I decided to sell the townhouse. It was on my mind for some time, but I never had the time to prepare the property and get it ready to place on the market. Luckily, Scott took care of everything for me. I can honestly say it was the easiest large dollar transaction I've ever experienced. Scott even worked with the lawyer, so I didn't have to commute to NC for the closing. If you're looking for an honest, dedicated and professional Realtor to help sell or buy a place, I highly recommend Scott!
Scott was great. 5 stars. He was knowledgeable, professional, funny, generous, patient, courteous, prompt, always available. And wise, to the point of being a pretty good social worker/psychotherapist to his nervous clients. Also, his assessment of how quickly we would sell our house and for what price was very close to what actually happened. But I guess that's part of being knowledgeable and wise. Finally, we had a lot of fun. The relationship was as close to a friendship without crossing professional boundaries as you can get. and we got a really nice housewarming present of excellent chocolates when we closed both ends of the deal. Thanks Scott, for your hard work, humor and patience. Greg.
Scott was amazing to work with from start to finish! As it was our first time selling a home, we were especially grateful for Scott's patient and detailed explanation of all steps in the process. During most of the time that we were working with Scott, we were living out of town, so we were particularly impressed by his responsiveness, his availability even on short notice, and his frequent and clear updates from listing to closing. Scott made us feel as if we were his only client, and he guided us through an at-times difficult negotiation process with grace and ease. We would recommended Scott to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the Greensboro area without hesitation.
I had the pleasure of working with Scott. It took me well over a year to find the right property and Scott was always willing to keep going. Once we saw a few properties he knew what I wanted. He gently directed me to properties that I NEVER would have chosen......and lo and behold we found the perfect place!!!! He was a pleasure to work with and I will recommend him forever.
Very professional and listens to his clients needs. It was a pleasure to work with him. He is patient and answers your questions promptly. He walks you through the buying and selling process, assisting you through the process by helping you understand the procedure of buying and selling a house. He works diligently for his clients and I would elicit his services again for real estate needs.
Scott really listened to us and our needs, worked tirelessly to show us a variety of homes and went out of his way to make the process as seamless as possible. His Greensboro team were phenomenal when it came to the administrative logistics and since we were moving from out of state, there were a lot of things that North Carolina that we had not expected, but everyone was amazing to work with at Allen Tate Realty.
From the very first e-mail that we sent to our closing day, Scott made sure my wife and I were on the right path step-by-step to home ownership. Professional, friendly but most important knowledgeable, Scott knows Greensboro and its surroundings. Recommended to us by a co-worker, I will happily return the favor and recommend him to the next person in need of a realtor. Although after the first time you meet him, he stops being your realtor and starts being your friend!

We recently moved to Greensboro from Wilmington, NC and had the great good fortune to enlist Scott Michaels of Allen Tate Realtors to assist us in finding a house. Scott’s easy demeanor, absolute professionalism, even temper and good humor helped ease those scary days when we realized with horror that we had once owned a good home, but we left! For one thing, although we knew it wasn’t true, Scott made us feel that we were the most important people on his agenda. There was never a time when we called that he did not answer, and when we had questions they were answered promptly and certainly. Scott’s certainty, his absolute knowledge of his profession, and his willingness to find an answer if he didn’t know one, inspired our confidence and our comfort. Scott showed us every home we wanted to see, gently made suggestions when he thought they were warranted, and very kindly (almost imperceptibly!) steered us consistently toward quality and good-sense without tempering our dreams. In the end, we got exactly what we wanted at a negotiated price that we had only hoped for. Frankly, we would trust Scott with our money, and we like him because we recognize Scott as a gentleman, a real, honest to goodness Gentleman, and as we write that word we’re tickled that he’ll read it and appreciate it. Scott doesn’t lie, he’s prompt, he’s incredibly polite, he keeps his promises, he has a dry sense of humor that we found infectious and clever and - wonder of wonders - he’s available when you need him! We had an easy, nearly stress-free search for a house and we can’t thank Scott enough for his assistance.

To Whom It May Concern: We are writing this letter to give our highest recommendations to Scott Michaels as a realtor. We had the pleasure of working with Scott for a full year as we looked for a home in Greensboro, NC. We first met him at an open house that he hosted on Sylvan road. We were struck by his pleasant demeanor and his willingness to answer our questions about house-hunting even before we contacted him to be our agent. He also took the time to follow up via mail after our initial encounter. We met many different seller’s agents during our open house visits, but when it came time for us to begin to look in earnest, Scott had made the biggest and best impression on us. We were struck by his preparedness and willingness to listen as we worked with him. He greeted us with a packet of information designed to help first-time homebuyers understand the search process. When we pointed out that there were two different houses that we were interested in seeing, he wasted no time in making the arrangements to view them with us. During our initial walk throughs, we were impressed by his keen eye and his ability to assess the pros and cons of any property. He was able to answer the questions that we had about different features or potential resale values. If he didn’t know the answer, he knew whom to ask. We continued to meet and visit different properties with him over the next few months. He managed to schedule multiple visits in a short time and was always prepared with useful information about each property. At no time did we feel rushed or pressured into buying a place that we did not want. Scott was patient, helpful, and a wellspring of valuable information. He will tell you that he sees his role primarily as a matchmaker and not a salesman. That was our experience of working with him. We came close to buying a home in the fall of 2017. Scott saved us heartbreak and headaches by suggesting a house inspector who was also a structural engineer. The inspector was able to find several major structural problems that a previous inspector had missed. Scott helped us to negotiate our way out of the deal. When we found the house that we liked, Scott helped to walk us through the buying process, letting us know what to expect, what may come up, and how to prepare. As first time homebuyers, it was a scary process. Scott quickly turned into our personal assistant and helped us to make appointments with the various inspectors, lawyers, and all of the other necessary folks to close our house. It was a tremendous help to us as first-time homebuyers. He also negotiated a considerable repair request from the seller and the seller’s agent. These funds helped us to fix up the house that we purchased with little additional costs. Throughout the process, we found Scott to be immensely helpful. He was a real estate consultant, a walking contact list of vendors and contractors, and a counselor/therapist as we navigated a huge decision for the first time. We felt immensely lucky to have gone with him in the first place. Do not hesitate to contact him if you are interested in buying a house! We imagine that he will be equally helpful as a seller’s agent as well.
I want to say that Scott Michaels made the buying process super easy and low stress as it can be. We are first time home buyers and lucked out in finding a gem like Scott. Even though I know for sure he was busy, he always made us feel like we were the only people he was assisting. Being new to the Greensboro area and still living Charlotte we were happy to have Scott make suggestions of what areas would suit our needs and budget. What really makes him truly the best to work with is his follow up with me, the lender, and the lawyers. We had a slight issue with the lack of communication from our lender and Scott was persistent enough to get what we needed from the lender before the deadline. Scott is obviously dedicated to his clients and an expert at what he does.
A great experience; my realtor was excellent. Allen Tate has multiple aspects "in house:" mortgage, insurance. It really streamlined the experience.
It was a real pleasure working with Scott Michaels. Buying a home was one of the biggest, most complex purchases I've ever made. From the initial house hunt all the way through closing, Scott kept the process simple and was always available to answer any questions or concerns.

Scott Michaels, quite simply, is an amazing Realtor. We have worked with other Realtors in the past, but when we decided to list our house, we interviewed agents and discovered there is a big difference between real estate professionals. Because our house was quite large and located on acreage off the beaten path, there were not really any comparable houses on which to base pricing. Scott recommended that we have the property professionally appraised so that we could make good decisions. He brought in a fantastic photographer to take pictures of our home. And he promoted it throughout the selling process. Once we had an offer, he again guided us through the closing process, ensuring that everything was done properly. He always made us feel like we were his only clients, even though we knew he was busy with numerous other clients. In addition to being a great guy, Scott is a five-star Realtor who covers every base to make sure that your selling experience goes as smoothly as possible.
Scott is a consumate professional.
We decided to buy a condo for our son and had very specific requirements due to his medical needs. We contacted Scott and he jumped right on it and emailed several to us that met our criteria. He was always ready and waiting at the showings and had done his homework and could answer all of our questions. Working with Scott was a pleasure!
Scott helped us find an investment property .. a small house to rent to a young family. Scott listened so well and helped us look at properties that met all of our criteria (budget, location, and opportunity to renovate and add value.) He also showed us some properties that had already been improved so we could understand what renters would appreciate and value. Scott helped us with scheduling inspections and gave us advise on what to expect. He also was invaluable in the negotiation process. I would not hesitate to work with Scott again and would recommend him to anyone in the market, whether buying or selling.
I am a first time home buyer in the Triad area who recently worked with Scott to purchase my first home in Greensboro after renting in the area previously. Despite the fact that I had a fairly strict budget and limited time to look at homes, Scott was able to help me narrow down what types of home I was interested in and made sure everything went smoothly even though I was completely unfamiliar with the process.
Working with Scott was great! He is extremely patient, knowledgable and detailed which made the buying process run smoothly as a property virgin. I definitely recommend Scott to everyone I know. Saying Scott goes above and beyond is an understatement. It was a pleasure working with him.
Without Scott Michaels, I could never have navigated my first experience selling a house. He was invaluable and wonderful. Scott was infinitely patient in explaining to me the process and what to expect. He made good suggestions on things I could do to help the house sell. He then studied home sales in the neighborhood and set a price that both satisfied me and helped the house sell quickly, which I requested. I also felt confident in having the reputation and prestige of Allen Tate Realtors behind me. When problems arose with the buyers’ realtor (not all realtors are created equal, it seems), Scott remained calm and guided all of us through the process. Yes, I lost it a couple of times, and Scott was always there to calm me down. I always felt I could trust him, and what he told me turned out to be correct and good advice. He was available to me day and night, even though I realize he had other clients. In short, I could not have asked for a better realtor, and I would highly recommend him to people both selling and buying a home.
I have worked with a number of real estate agents over the years. Scott was without a doubt the best of the best. Always professional, he is a true gentleman. But best of all, he knows his stuff. For every question I had in the long and often confusing process of trying to sell my mother's house after my dad passed away, Scott had a prompt and helpful reply. I really can't recommend him highly enough.
Scott was amazing. I was living out of state, and he set up the appointments to see 12 houses in one day (!!!) and helped me with the paperwork and processes. He's very professional and knowledgeable. And he is very personable and quickly figured out my preferences, which made for an easy and pleasant house hunt and purchase . I highly recommend him!!!
Scott was very helpful when it came to buying our first house. We looked at so many houses and couldn't find anything, but Scott stayed positive and told us we would find our perfect house and he was right! Scott made this experience easy, he always kept us up to date with the entire process and I am so grateful to have had him help us buy our first house.
Erica and Tommy Taylor
My fiancé and I moved to the Triad at the beginning of 2016, with the help of Scott. We didn't know any realtors in the area so we called the office to speak with someone about showing us a property. We were VERY lucky to have Scott answer the phone!!! From that point on he answered every single time we called, showed us properties at the last minute (and at extremely inconvenient times!) and ultimately helped us find the perfect home for us. Going above and beyond is an understatement for how he treated us as customers. As long as Scott is a realtor, he will defiantly be ours and we would suggest the same to everyone we know.
I have worked with many Realtors over the years, and Scott Michaels is by far the best I've seen. His service is top-notch in every aspect, including always being on time, understanding my home wants and needs, thinking of every pertinent detail, (whether it may be aspects of a home, elements of a contract, seller/buyer negotiation etc.), handling inspections (and even re-inspections), and more. His level of service far exceeded my expectations. He is very likable, extremely knowledgeable, very patient, and a consummate professional. If ever I need a Realtor for the Triad area in future, I'm definitely going back with Scott.
Incredibly helpful, knowledgeable and responsive. Would definitely recommend Scott.
Very professional and knowledgeable.
I’m very thankful to Mr. Scott Michaels, for helping me with my new home and thanks for his hardworking. Big thanks to Allen Tate Realtors. Thank you so much!
If I could rate knowledge, communication and responsiveness a 20/10 then that's what I'd give Scott Michaels.
It was a pleasure working with Scott. He was always available for us when we needed him. We had to look at houses mostly on weekends due to my wife living in PA. He helped us with everything and made buying this home very easy. I will recommend him to anyone I know looking to buy a home in this area. Scott gets 5 stars from me! Thanks for all you did for us!
