“I met Scott last year at an open house for a beautiful home in the museum district that I couldn’t afford in a million years but just had to see (you know what I mean). He was friendly and gracious and even downloaded a qrc reader (is that right?) onto my phone and showed me how to use it. What a nice guy. So, a few months later, after several attempts to see some houses kept running into brick walls of listing agents not getting back to us we decided that we needed a buyers agent. Someone who knew the city, the neighborhoods and would be sensitive to our very specific tastes and would not try to show us a McMansion or sprawl du jour.
Scott was great. He introduced us to new neighborhoods, didn’t show us what we didn’t want to see but at the same time pushed us to consider new things. For about six months (and maybe seventy houses) we saw more of Scott than his family did. He patiently guided us through contracts that we didn’t get, contracts that we needed to get out of and explained short sales and renovation loans. He put up with my high maintenance now now now anxious energy and guided us through a successful purchase.
We are not only grateful for everything that he did with us/for us but impressed by his easy going attitude, high level of knowledge or willingness to help with any and all aspects of the process. More than a week after closing and I am still calling that poor man with my questions and he is still actively helping.
I could go on and on – just know that if you are interested in city living, great neighborhoods and architecturally awesome houses Scott will get you what you want – and at a great price with full closing.”
“We contacted One South about three months before we put our house on the market. Scott and his staff immediately went into action. A staging team helped us decide how to make best use of our furnishings. They helped us choose a warm color to paint our tired walls and loaned us a kitchen set to replace our table and chairs “distressed” over the years of raising five children. They even provided us with workers to do some minor carpentry and electrical work. They were thorough, efficient and easy to work with.
The result: our home sold in 12 days at a price far more than we had dared to hope. Scott provided his considerable insight and calm, positive demeanor during the inevitable contract negotiations. He even brought in a happy crew of cleaners so we wouldn’t have to vacuum, mop and tidy up on moving day.
Scott and One South are the tops. We recommend One South to you without reservation for your real estate needs.”

“When my wife and I moved back to Richmond last year, we wanted to live in the Fan. We went to a few open houses and realized we needed a realtor with experience in the area. All of the homes were so unique – how would we know if they were priced fairly? They were also over 100 years old – what common problems did we need to look-out for?
Scott was a perfect fit for us. He has an intimate knowledge of the area and a lot of experience remodeling old fan houses. First, he showed us several on the market to give us a lay of the land and answer all of our questions. Then, he developed a good sense of what we were looking for and saved us a lot of time during our search. When we found our house, we were able to act fast and felt completely confident in our purchase.
We also found that Scott has surrounded himself with a great team – the closing attorney, lender and inspector – all top-notch. He even gave us a list of contractors he uses for everything from paint to structural repairs. Everyone we’ve worked with has been great.
It’s important to find a realtor that’s right for you. If you are going to interview a few, Scott is worth adding to your list.”
“Over the past several years I have bought and sold three properties with the help of Scott Garnett.
I realized after the first, that he was so much more than an “agent”. He really has gone above and beyond on every transaction! We sold two properties on the first day largely due to Scott’s expertise on staging and marketing! We just bought our dream home after months of looking. He was able to negotiate an amazing deal with our family’s interest and security in mind.
I would highly recommend Scott Garnett with One South for any real estate needs.”
