What my clients say about me...
Customers of Scott Bullard,
My husband and I met Scott after having four very poor experiences with real estate agents in the Highland Lakes area. Our weekend house had been up for sale with these other agents for fourteen months with few showings and only one offer, and our frustration level was extremely high. Not one of the previous agents had fulfilled our expectations of determining the appropriate price for the home, marketing it well to viable buyers and agents, keeping flyers stocked, maintaining the web sites and most importantly, keeping us informed. This last point was stressed with each agent, and all had failed at least three times to contact us within 48 hours after a request for information. Our patience had run out with our situation and with realtors in general.
We explained to Scott that we were looking for an agent that would be realistic in an assessment of the house and current circumstances, provide us with options and recommendations, and agree to communicate with us weekly (or more often when the situation called for it). We understood that it would not be pleasant to come in after other agents and make the listing fresh again after so much time, and told Scott he was at a significant disadvantage with our current mistrust and skepticism of the industry.
Scott's response was quite characteristic, as we found out later. "Leave the worrying and details to me. We'll get this house sold." His confidence, sincerity and personal faith showed us he was the right agent for us. Scott quickly got the listing and web site information under control, and provided excellent advice. He kept the signs and flyers up, did some maintenance (cobwebs on the front porch, caulking in the shower and the roof), legwork (survey copies and floor plan maps for the closing), repairs (scheduled, negotiated pricing and let in the carpet cleaners the buyers wanted), and even went and mowed the yard prior to a showing when we were out of town (we had 2 acres).
At one point when a pending contract failed, I called Scott in tears. He simply told me he'd be at the house in 45 minutes (he lives an hour away). When he got there, our family sat down at the kitchen table with him and prayed. Scott asked for blessings on the house, our family and his abilities, and put the situation in God's hands. Then he asked us to give him our burden; his shoulders were broad enough to take it. We were quite moved by Scott's selflessness, poise and dedication during that dark time.
We have already recommended Scott to one friend selling his property, and will do so with anyone looking for a realtor (buying or selling). We will certainly use Scott again when we need an agent. Finding someone with integrity that you can trust is essential; we have that with Scott. And he is a friend now too!

Our family would like to thank you for all that you did for us as our agent. You went above and beyond all expectations we had from a realtor. Selling a home you love is bitter-sweet, but you made the experience a pleasure. We value you as a professional and as a friend. Thank you again for everything. God bless you.

I have been meaning to write a letter to thank you for all you have done for us. It has never been so easy to sell and buy a house!!! Besides being friendly and professional (and an awesome cookie maker!) you are like family to us. Only a family member would not only attend all inspections, viewings, and closings but also drop everything at a moment's notice to let in contractors, appraisers, floor installers, and even mother-in-laws and clients trying to match paint to rooms (no, we didn't choose the "Pepto Bismol" shade of pink). I'll never forget you meeting us before we left for work one morning to sign papers and my mother-in-law coming over to baby sit that day. She said, "I knew you said you would be like family, but gosh!" Paul and I were proud to recommend you to his sister, Cindi, who has also found a home and put an offer on it thanks to your help and dedication. We would gladly refer you to anyone who wanted a friendly realtor to get the job done for them.
With Much Appreciation,
My agent Scott will be my life long agent and friend. He really heard what our needs were for a house and found our dream home! Scott made the whole process fun and effortless. I am truly amazed with all his research that saved us so much time. He stayed in contact with us from beginning to end and took care of every detail.
I will recommend him to all my friends. It was truly a pleasure!
Kathy Hegar Austin, TX
In August 2005 we desperately needed to sell our house, we had upgraded to a larger house due to my wife’s daycare business. Our plans to quickly move and sell the old house did not materialize. After several months of double payments, Cancer treatments and lots of prayers my wife and I were distressed, that we could lose the new house due to double payments and medical bills. We changed realtors and we met Scott, a strong brother in Christ. The next few weeks we received several offers for our house. Then when our finances were about to run out, our prayers and Scotts were answered. The house was sold and closed on December 1 2005.
I want to personally thank Scott for his prayers, helping to get the few items fixed in the house. Most of all the support he gave in his Christian love attitude toward my wife and I.

Our first time going out I remember Scott calling us the night before and he asked us what we kind of soda we liked to drink, which seemed odd to us, but we told him and thought nothing more about it. The next afternoon we met Scott and all loaded up into his truck and headed toward the first house. Scott had put a cooler in the truck with our favorite soda in it, which was very thoughtful and then he handed us a binder that had a colored picture of each house that we were going to look at and a pen for us to make notes on concerning each house. This was a nice personal touch as it allowed us to see what he saw on the report of the house at the same time.
As we continued on looking, we became very comfortable with Scott as he was always watching out for the good deals and steering us clear of the bad ones. Scott proved to us in the short time we worked with him that he is one of those few Realtor’s that are left that actually go the extra mile and maybe a few more just to make sure that the best house and deal are made for his clients. He made us feel like we were his only clients and the personal touches with the drinks and the print outs of each house were way above and beyond what I’ve seen any other Realtor do for a client.
On a personal note; Scott is a very loyal Christian who trusts the Lord and lives his life accordingly. This unwavering faith he has is the one quality that made us feel more comfortable talking about our finances and everything else that buying a home brings into the picture that we knew he would keep it confidential.
We know that Austin will very soon have a lot of happy New Home Owners thanks to the personal touches and honesty of Scott Bullard. We truly miss him and wish him the best of luck.
