Within the county lines, the Ocala National Forest provides visitors with access to hundreds of thousands of acres of unspoiled wooded areas, including babbling brooks, bubbling streams and peaceful lakes. Forests and parks are plentiful throughout the area, making Marion County an outdoorsman’s dream. Many parks feature unique camping sites, canoeing routes, miles of hiking trails, and plentiful opportunities for small game hunting and fishing.

Mr Scott Coldwell made a positive difference in my daughters and my life. After a 25 year marriage in a home we built to raise our family a divorce occurred. Nobody plans for that and nobody wants to disrupt a family. But it happened and we were faced with our home that needed to be sold. As soon as I accepted the reality there was one agent that I knew I wanted to assist me. I needed somebody who represents integrity and professionalism and responsiveness. That name was Mr. Scott Coldwell. Scott and his wife had been students of mine several years ago. I admired his real estate reputation as a result of other colleagues who has had positive experiences. Our home went on the market as a short sale and that too could have been damaging to my self worth. But scott reassured me it was going to be ok and that he would work diligently and we'd take one day at a time. I knew that my home would not bring great financial gain to Scott and his family but he treated me like he was try to sell a castle. After months of patient conversations and direction the house sold. The timing could not have been better. My younger sister that lived in NJ was challenged with terminal cancer. She was a virtual cheerleader for our home selling. Right shy of Thanksgiving Scott emailed a picture of the SOLD sign in front of the house. On my last visit to my sister before her passing I saw the picture on her hospital desk tray. She believed it would sell and I reassured her it would with Mr. Scott Coldwell in the lead. We are thankful! Many of us at the College of Central Florida have had the privilege to share SCOTT COLDWELL REAL ESTATE success stories! Cheers to Scott.

We had a wonderful experience with Scott. Our sale was quiet complicated and he helped us thru every step. We appreciate his time and effort and guidance. Hopefully we will work together again soon in buying a house.

Scott was very helpful in completing the short sale of our house. We originally hired a lawyer to help with the short sale with no results or offers. When I call Scott, he was confident that the house would sell and he reasured me that he had worked with many short sales. It did take quit a while to sell the house, our mortgage company was difficult and we lost three potential buyers. With the last buyer, the title company was holding up the closing, Scott changed title companies and we closed within two weeks. We had many ups and downs with the title company, Scott took care of them all and kept the ball rolling.

My wife and I selected Scott through a recommendation from another agency. This was our first time ever dealing with real estate folks. He stayed up on our property on a regular basis, and keep us up to date on all aspects of the sale. Scott was available after hours and on weekends, which was good for us since we work ourselves. He was able to schedule a short time closing at a convenient time and date, which was also important since we were from out of state. Plus Scott is a really all around nice guy,

I actually picked Scott at random while looking for homes in Marion County. I wanted to just deal with one agent. From the moment I met him I knew I had made a great choice. Our schedule was challenging because we were coming from out of state and many times it was Holiday weekends. He was always accommodating and patient with our requests. He gave us lots of properties to choose from and ultimately he found us the perfect home that seemed to be custom made just for us. Even down to the closing things went smoother than any other home I have purchased and there have been many. I would recommend Scott to anyone looking for a pleasant and rewarding home buying experience. Cheryl

Scott is very professional but does not put undue pressure on the selling process. I was notified when needed, but not to the point of being bothered. This is a good thing in today's environment when we are all very busy. I would definitely use Scott for any further real estate transactions I may have. Thanks Scott!!!!

By far the best realtor experience that my wife and I have had. Scott was on top of all issues that arose during the purchase of our new home. He provided timely and sage advice during the whole process. Without a doubt, we would strongly recommend Scott to our friends, acquaintances and even strangers.

Scott helped us sell our home in a difficult market under difficult circumstances (divorce). When there were some disagreements, he helped negotiate a result that was agreeable to the buyer and seller. Scott went the extra mile in making sure the final details of the sale were all taken care of. I would highly recommmend him to anyone who is trying to sell their home.

As a first-time home seller in a very tough market, I had a million questions in regards to the selling process. Scott showed great patience and took the time to answer all my questions which improved my comfort level during a very stressful process. He even provided additional information to ensure that I looked at all options objectively as the selling process developed. He is an excellent Real Estate Professional!

Im a first time buyer, and Scott was great! He helped me for many months to try and find a house that fit my wants! He helped me win this house over others looking at it. He kept me posted and didnt mind me calling, emailing nor texting! He was great at getting back with you. He did anything in his power to get this house for me! i wouldnt trade it for nothing. If i needed to buy another house, sell or someone who needed help i would call Scott! I'll never forget you! YOUR AN AWESOME REALTOR!!!!!!! :)

Scott is THE BEST! Scott was referred to me by a fellow employee. I was apprehensive of any and all realtors as I am a female and was purchasing my very first home, so I had a lot to learn. Scott was very helpful and informative. He answered all of my questions-and I had a lot of them! My home purchase was a challenge (the selling agent left a lot to be desired!) Scott worked endlessly to make my home purchase a reality. I appreciated that Scott was there to have to deal with the seller and I did not have to. (Thank you Scott!!) As I sit here in my new home, I'm very thankful that Scott was my realtor. If you want a great, honest man, then call Scott to help you buy or sell your home! I highly recommend him!

Scott helped us to purchase a second home in the Ocala area. He was quick to respond and available to us when we were able to come to town. He worked with us to accommodate a home tour schedule that would meet my husbands medical needs. He helped us negotiate an incredible deal and was with us every step of the way. In fact, even though our home closed recently, he's been willing to continue to help us out until we move! We really enjoyed working with Scott- you will too!

My husband and I are from out of town and Scott made the purchasing and closing process very easy for us. He was always responsive to our situation, was in constant contact with us and always available either in person, on the phone or via email. When we were visiting Florida, we picked out the home we wanted to purchase. Going forward from there, our entire transaction was conducted via long distance. We don't think we could have accomplished what we needed to accomplish without Scott. We will definitely recommend him to our friends and, if the occasion ever arises again, we would definitely contact him to either list our home or purchase another. Thank you Scott for everything.

The task at hand was more than I expected with many bumps in the road. He took the time to explain everything and made this transaction as smooth as possible for me under very difficult circumstances. I am very grateful to have had Scott on my side with the knowledge and persistence Scott provided he got the job done. His efforts were endless even at times when things became difficult and frustrating. He stayed on top of the situation, kept me informed and is very pleasant to work with. Great job done Scott, keep up the good work.

Scott was diligent and patient in helping get my home sold. After several offers feel through, we were finally able to close the deal. Thanks, Scott.

Scott help me any way he could!!! I was a first time home buyer and he answered every question I threw at him. I would not recommend anyone but Scott.

Scott is very helpful and knowledgable. I would recommend him highly to anyone looking for a home to buy or sell

Scott helped us sell our home, purchase a home, and has assisted me regularly with my business. Scott's thorough understanding of our market along with skills rated above has allowed him to navigate our worst economic decline. Scott, unlike others, refocused his skills and made every effort to understand the foreclosure/shortsale/bank owned market. Average homebuyers will find this information invaluable in their quest to find their perfect home. He has developed a large network of contacts within this industry to assist him or his customer during the process. We will defintely continue to use Scott for our real estate needs in the future and would recommend him to anyone.

Our experience with Scott was an excellent one. During a very turbulent real estate market he was able to sell our home and get us the best deal possible, given the economic times. We depended on him greatly as we lived out of state during the time of the sale and he did a fantastic job of keeping us informed and updated so that we felt part of the process. He listened to our ideas, yet gave us professional advice to follow. Even since the sale of the property, he has remained a great source of information and has gone above and beyond with a few issues where we have solicited his help and experience. We are thankful for his real estate knowledge and the help he provided to our family. We recommend Scott without reservation.

I am glad that Scott was recommended by a friend. He is very familiar with the area and knows what the market is doing. Scott kept in touch with me throughout the process of buying my home which made it less stressful for me. Scott also sold my moms home. He was easy to work with and helped us in setting the asking price and negotiating the final deal. Scott is very honest & trustworthy and I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone either as the buying or selling agent.
