Testimonials for Scott Hawes
We engaged the services of Scott Hawes, Principle Broker, Fay Ranches Inc. in Prineville, Oregon, to sell our 575 acre irrigated ranch. The results were very positive. My partners and I have been in the real estate business for forty years. We have met and worked with a wide variety of real estate agents around the state. We agree that this has been a very tough sell, but Scott got it done and handled things in a first class manner. Always attentive to details, conscientious and honest, he also has a knack for working with people. Then too, his affiliation gives the marketing effort a nationwide range, which was especially important with respect to our property.
