Scott Vorhees

Realtor  ADVISOR/OFFICE MANAGER

I first discovered the Mendocino Coast back in 1988 when a friend in Sacramento recommended the area as a vacation get-away for my partner and I. We were immediately smitten by the beautiful vistas and the relaxed feeling of the community. We followed-up that first trip with an annual visit for the next 10 years. Then in 1998, we knew that we could no longer wait to make this area our permanent home. Becoming members of this community was the best decision we ever made.

During a 13-year stint as the office manager for a local medical office, I had the opportunity to come to know so many wonderful individuals in the community and to become even more enamored by this gracious and supportive population. Every year, we participate in numerous special celebrations, fund-raising events, and community activities that make the Mendocino Coast a magical place to live.

In 2011, I was fortunate to land the position of office manager at Big River Realty. This new venture became an instant perfect fit for me. Now, as a licensed REALTOR®, I can bring even more opportunity for service to the office, the community, and future home-owners to the area.

TESTIMONIALS

An exceptional agent with a broad understanding of the market and process, he works with integrity to represent property in its best light. Even in the toughest of markets, Covid-19 restrictions in place, Scott was able to keep the interest in our property high with excellent photos and text, outreach and marketing strategies. A great listener, Scott's imagination, grace and humor kept the process moving smoothly from start to finish. A great pleasure to work with him. - lsteadman


Very professional and conscientious Realtor. Listed our house in as many places as possible. Always in contact with us letting us know when he showed it and what questions or concerns people had. I would highly recommend Scott to anyone who is selling any real estate. - J&SP


Scott gave us an amazing buying experience, sticking with us as we searched the area for the right house for our family. When we had to leave the area to return to our home in Florida, he continued to represent us in a trustworthy manner, often going above and beyond his actual duties to complete inspections, walk-throughs, etc. He dealt with the ups and downs of our search with good humor and patience. He negotiated well on our behalf and we are very happy with our property and the price we paid. I recommend him very highly! - K


Scott paired up with an agent I had used before in order to provide full coverage while we were marketing our house. It was a little bit of a risk, as we didn't know him at all, but he kept his cool through tough negotiations, caught contractual glitches that I wouldn't have, was very responsive whenever I had a question or a concern, and provided great service during a protracted, difficult, long-distance sales process. (He also has a great sense of humor, which is crucial!) I would definitely recommend him, and plan to use him should we have need of an agent in Mendocino or environs again. - A


Scott is a truly fantastic agent! Not only is he extremely knowledgeable about the real estate market, but he is also very detail oriented, responsive and communicative. He guided us through our home purchase with expertise and provided the support we needed…never letting anything fall through the cracks. I would highly recommend him! - MJ


That experience could not have been better. Scott, recommended by a neighbor, is thorough, professional, knowledgeable, honest, helpful. I can't think of enough good things to say about him, and my experience with the timely sale of my property at a good and fair price. All went smoothly, thanks to Scott. I would do it again in a heartbeat, and also heartily recommend Scott. He knew what to do, when to do it, and was able to communicate with all parties in an excellent manner. - SS


Scott is easy to work with and kept me informed of developments. Good communications. He knows the local market. Nice guy too. We had one sale collapse through no fault of Scott's, but he got tight back on the job, and the property was sold. This was a vacation rental and it was difficult for Scott to schedule showings, but he worked it out. - PB


Scott was very conscientious, responsive, knowledgeable and easy to work with. He has a lowkey style yet knows when he needs to set limits. Scott has a good sense of humor and gets along with a wide variety of people. I highly recommend him. - RG


Scott is a very professional, knowledgeable, and honest agent. He took the stress of selling our property completely off our shoulders. He represented us as the sellers and as well as representing the buyers, and his dealings with both sides were extremely professional. He consistently handled and answered the questions we had as sellers as well as those of the buyers in such a caring and timely manner. Because of his tremendous people skills, our relationship with the buyers was and remains very positive and friendly. Scott is very enthusiastic about his job, and he continually pushes himself to learn as much as he can about his trade. If a question arose of which he wasn't quite sure, he didn't hesitate to talk to his broker or research on his own to find the right answer. Lastly, his honesty and integrity are beyond question, and I feel quite certain the buyers feel the same way. When Scott offered his opinion or guidance, we knew we could trust that these were his thoughtful, honest feelings. On a more personal note, Scott has a very charismatic personality: gracious, witty, friendly, and charming. I know you would enjoy working with him as much we did. - KB


I had the pleasure of working with Scott Vorhees for the five months that my home was listed and sold through his Real Estate office. I found him to be competent, patient, and friendly to work with. He was good at calming me down when I was getting frustrated and worried about the process. He was easy to get a hold of when I needed to talk to him and always answered my calls promptly. I would highly recommend him to anyone wanting to sell their home. - RA

Scott was so pleasant to work with. It was a highly stressful event for me but he stayed steady to help me thru. We were almost always on the same page so that really helped. Very nice person & seems to put his clients needs & wants in front of his own. Highly recommend!! - Sandyeis
