Many agents use the term “top performing”. I will let you determine if my resume meets the description. In the Vancouver Real Estate board there are over 10,000 agents. For 8 consecutive years I was ranked as one of the top 90 agents out of 10,000 based on number of homes sold.
I used to be know as Scott Warren. In 2003 when my career started I followed the advice of my brother to use a last name that was easier to pronouce. I discoverd practicing real estate under a professional name that was not your real name created a bunch of confusion for my personal life. I have decided to simply be me, Scott Sauer. Sauer is pronounced like Bauer but with an "S".
I love Vancouver, there is no other place in North America like it, upgrade that claim to the world! This is why real estate is such a hot commodity in our city.
Selling real estate since 2003, I have advised my clients through the ups and downs, remember 2008? My experience is based primarily in Vancouver. I have completed over 800 transactions resulting in Re/Max awarding me the ‘Life Time Achievement Award’ in year 8 of my career. An accomplishment I am very proud of. I have based my success on being avaliable and working long hours resulting in superiour market knowledge to share with my clients. I also have an understanding of construction and what makes a house or condo building ‘good’ or ‘problematic’. With the help of outside professionals like Building Inspectors, Accountants and Lawyers I will help you understand the risk and benefits of each property you view afording you the luxery to make an educated level headed decision with confidence.
Real Estate is almost a family business. I have a brother and nephew who are agents and my other brother- Notary of Public www.sauernotary.ca
In Vancouver I enjoy a very urban lifestyle, charcuterie, wine parings and single malt scotch are my indulgences… okay add to that the ever growing craft beer world and fusion dining experiences. At home I am a master griller, and breakfast with waffles is what makes Saturday even more awesome.
I grew up in the North, Fort McMurray. As a youngster it was a sleepy little town and the perfect place for an adventuresome kid like myself. This is where I fell in love with the outdoors. I am an avid adventurer, I love extreme desolate exploration on my river boat, mountain hiking, and wilderness camping. Most of my time off is spent in remote places exploring (yes I have scary bear stories!).
"What set Scott Sauer apart from his contemporaries is the personal interest he took in my needs to sell and buy a home. He did this without any loss of effectiveness, facilitating the sale of my home at a great price in a tough market.
When it came time to buy, Scott’s intimate knowledge of the properties I was interested in and sage advice allowed for the search for a new home to be taken at a pace I was comfortable with. In a dynamic market, Scott coached me through the process to make good logical decisions when one has to be very strategic in purchasing."

"Well, I am settled in my new home and I must say that it is everything I dreamed of! Thank you for your help. You were so accommodating and available when I needed you, calls promptly returned, always on time with our appointments. You took my concerns and questions with my best interests in mind. Most of all, you made me feel comfortable.
For my next move and if I know of anyone selling or buying a home, I will certainly recommend Scott Sauer."
~ J. B.
O'Brien and I would like to thank you for assisting us in getting our dream home, your patience and commitment
to see things through speaks volume about you...
Thanks again for everything, and we wish you continued success in your future endeavours. Fingers cross O'Brien takes some time to enjoy it.
~ Angelin & O'Brien
"We were very impressed with the way you executed the sale of our home. Thanks a lot for your hard work. We look forward to completing the second half of our journey in finding the perfect home with your help. We have found that home and our family loves having a new house!"
~ Janice and Kelly
"Over the years, I have bought and sold 15 properties throughout Canada. This is the first time I have ever written about my experience, but because it was so extraordinary, I felt it warranted it.
Before we decided whom we would list with, we went out to a number of open houses and saw how the different agents conducted themselves. Of all the properties we viewed, Scott Warren’s listings were the ones that stood out from the rest. He had more signage, information, knowledge of property and support.
We called Scott for a property assessment. He answered the call; it didn’t just go to voice mail. He came over to our home on our schedule. He was punctual, professional and gave us a good feeling about his ability to market our home, without being pushy or arrogant. Our home sold in a tight timeframe for much more than we had expected.
Scott Warren is truly a man of his word and made this transaction the best in my life. From day one, Scott always worked for us, not himself or the market. Thank you Scott, you truly are in a cloud above the rest."
~ C. Browne and P. Healey
"Thank you so very much for all your hard work finding Vanessa, our daughter, a great home. It's absolutely fantastic... as were you! It's was great to know that while we were back in Alberta you were doing such a good job 24-7 leading Vanessa through her first time purchase. She was very anxious, but you did all the legwork and calmly got her through. Also, thanks for working so quickly - it was essential she leave her current "slum" as fast as possible and you did it - IN A WEEK - and met all our requirements. It's an awesome place with a fantastic community garden, in a super location, for a price we can afford. Thank you, Thank you!! I can hardly wait for you to find Bob & I (in 5 years) the perfect retirement condo. Until then, keep up the good work in making peoples dreams come true."
~ Mirella & Bob
"Thanks Scott. It was a real pleasure working with you. From beginning to end you were thorough, honest and available no matter what time we called."
~ Kelly Warren
"I wanted to thank you for all of the assistance that you provided to me as my real estate agent. As a first time home buyer, I was apprehensive around the process purchasing a home. You took the time to explain the process to me in simple terms and language and you exceeded all expectations. I now have a home that I love, in the area I wanted to reside and again, I want to say thank you."
~ Natalie Hoare
"Thanks for the service and advice as we went through the condo buying process. We're quite happy with the condo, and the approach you took to get us there. Please feel free to use us as a reference."
"As novice Sellers in the Real Estate Market, we needed plenty of guidance and support from our Listing Agent. Scott Sauer returned our first phone calls within 30 minutes, and maintained a thorough, proactive presence with us throughout the entire process. He was always available to answer every question we had (and there were many, many questions) and provided insight and intelligent feedback in the most professional and supportive manner.
Our first "Sale" transaction was completed smoothly, thanks to Scott's considerable experience and efficiency. Had we not been moving out of Vancouver, we most certainly would've requested that Scott become our Buyer's Agent as well! We absolutely recommend Scott Sauer to anyone interested in Real Estate investment; you will not be disappointed!"
~ J. & G. Fort
We recommend Scott, who knows what his clients needs are and meets them
"We were looking for a townhouse to move into and when the time came and we found our dream retirement home, we were at a loss as to what to do to sell our existing home. It needed to be done in a fast and efficient way so that we could get our new town home that we had just put an offer on. It was an offer based on the sale of our home, so we were in touch with our local bank and they recommended Scott Sauer for the job.
We felt better that the bank was referring someone as we didn't want to just choose someone out of the phone book. When we finally met Scott, we knew right away he was the best fit to sell our home, and he did just that within the first couple of weeks of being on the market! It was sold, and the dream home we always wanted was ours.
Scott is approachable and understanding to his clients needs and wants. He listens when you may differ with him and that was a plus in our books. He had great knowledge of our area and he used that to the fullest.
His cheerful, outgoing yet sensitive approach is what made him a top-notch real estate agent. His well-groomed appearance, punctuality, nice smile and fun attitude helped in the sale of our home. We recommend him to anyone who wants a person who knows what his clients needs are and then meets them beyond anything else.
Thanks, Scott, for the awesome job you did for our family; it made our trasition a pleasurable one!"
~ Gail & Richard
"We found Scott after looking at over 60 condos and trying to work with a real estate agent who was bent on selling us a place in an area that we really didn't want to live in.
Scott was open minded and understood our specific criteria for a "home" and not just a piece of equity. His availability and ability to come to us at any time of day was amazing. We were the first to view the condo that we purchased and Scott was quick to move ahead with an offer and was effective in the negotiations that followed.
We would recommend Scott to anyone looking for a new home. Responsive, professional and effective - a rare gem in the pool of agents out there."
~ Tracey & Kelvin
"Scott's friendly and calm approach to selling our first home to us really made us feel at ease. He was very informative and walked us through the ins and outs of our purchase. He was also a key factor in the negotiation process, which gave us the very best deal for our dollar.
We are extremely happy with our new home, and would gladly recommend Scott Sauer to our friends and family. When the time comes for us to move on, we will definitely be a return client to Scott Sauer!"
~ The Forthubers
"This was our first time buying a home. We did a lot of research on our own and even bought a book full of home-buying tips. All of this prep work was useful, but nothing can turly prepare you for the first time you go to spend such a large amount of money. We quickly found out that we didn't have a clue about what we were getting into. Thankfully, Scott was there to hold our hands. He helped us with every decision - what were good and bad qualities of each home we visited, what price to offer, the list goes on and on.
We really felt that Scott provided us with service tha went beyond the call of duty. He treated us as though we were his only clients, even though we knew this wasn't true. When it came time to go through the Strata Countil minutes for the past 12 months, Scott came over and helped us scour the, what seemed to be, millions of pages of information about the building we wanted to buy into. Again, we didn't really know what to be looking for, so Scott showed us where some potential problems were with the building and suggested that we ask for a price reduction.
We truly feel that we not only had a great realtor to help us, but that at the end of the process, we had developed a great friendship with Scott. He is an excellent person and a fantastic realtor. If it is service and expertise that you are looking for, Scott is the realtor for you. Thanks Scott for being such a great help to us on such a big decision."
~ Sandie and Duncan
"Scott Sauer is the Investors' Real Estate Agent. As a California resident, I could not have considered investing in Canadian real estate without the extra help and service of a top local agent whose integrity I could rely on. I required personal attention tailored around my visits to B.C., full management of real estate purchased and even coordination of cosmetic renovations. Scott provided this and did so gracoiusly, promptly, and with professionalism beyond comparison. I recommend him without reservation."
~ Neil D. Gitnick, President - Value Properties L.L.
"Scott was reliable, polite, punctual and followed through with finding me a great investment property!
I would recommend him with high praise as he has honour and integrity also!"
"As a new home buyer, I was very impressed with Scott's patience and understanding as we went though the process together.
He explained everythign in detail, and I flet that all of my questions were answered promptly. As well, he managed to maintain a completely professional manner, but also had an excellent sense of humour, which made my home buying experience fun!"
"As a person, Scott is very friendly, courteous and has a very likeable personality. As a real estate agent, Scott is very knowledgeable, patient and professional.
As for our experiences, they were very pleasant and positive. We were happy to find Scott, who listened to our needs and helped us get quick results. He draws from proven RE/MAX strategies and is backed by a very knowledgeable and helpful team. We were delighted when Scott sold our home within ONE week! He also helped us find a home to buy that we can be very proud of. Scott used all resources available to him and spent the necessary time with us to get the job done. We highly recommend Scott to any buyer or seller for his services."
~ Peter and Litsa
"Basically you did everything I expected, and more so I definitely have been and will continue to recommend you to people who are thinking of buying or selling."
"Scott was referred to me by a business contact, my mortgage broker with the Royal Bank. He told me that Scott was a top seller and that his service was top notch. I was not disappointed - on the contrary. Scott, although soft spoken, is a 'let's get you this house SOLD' agent, and he did. (I had tried to sell my home with another realtor for 160 days!) Scott Sauer sold my home in less than a month!)"
"I felt that Scott was very thorough in assessing my needs for a new home. Additionally he was very prompt in our communications, even while he was away on a business trip. I would happily recommend him to friends, and if I were to sell or buy again in the future I would definitely work with Scott."
