To Whom it May Concern: RE: Scott Walker Personal Real Estate Corporation. Scott Walker and Vicky Taktikos Our family retained Scott and Vicky to work with us on two home sales and two purchases (with a third pending) over the past 18 months. We have had opportunity over this period to observe their interactions with numerous buyers, sellers, inspectors and other Realtors on both sides of the transaction. Although there are many well qualified and experienced agents in Delta, we have yet to meet anyone with the combination of professionalism, strong communication and work ethic exhibited by Scott and Vicky. When asked to list our two properties in Tsawwassen, Scott and Vicky provided sound and detailed advice regarding every aspect of the sales process. Their assessment of market conditions, pricing trends and the marketing plan required to maximize return was highly accurate and resulted in the sale of both homes within one percent of asking. We would note that they were able to accomplish this during one of the most difficult markets for sellers in the past ten years. Scott is also an excellent choice for anyone looking to purchase in the area. Having grown-up in Delta, he has a great deal of knowledge about the community and the characteristics of each neighborhood. He is also a great secondary source of information with respect to identifying and suggesting solutions for common issues arising during inspection. Scott was given some very specific criteria for our searches and was not only successful in finding suitable properties but was able to negotiate prices on our behalf significantly below asking. In short, we would not hesitate to recommend Scott and Vicky to anyone looking for a professional, hard working, trustworthy, effective and communicative real estate team. If you have any questions about our experiences as their clients, please feel free to contact me at any time. Regards, Steve Timuss

Scott and Vicky, First off we wanted to thank you both for making our first home buying experience a great one. Scott, we just met with you once but we appreciate how easy you made things for us. Vicky, we met with you several times and each time was a pleasure- were very professional and made everything clear and easy. Every time we met, you were prepared and organized. You guys make a great team! Second, we would be happy to be references for future clients. You have our contact information. Thanks again for all the help. Have a great weekend! Kate and Andy

Scott & Vicky Well we are finally all unpacked and settled into our new home. We are grateful and appreciative for the professional manner in which our sale and purchase was orchestrated, in the period of two weeks. At first we must admit that we were quite skeptical, given the market conditions and our previous experience in selling our home in the Cariboo which took five years to sell. Your positive nature and outstanding communication skills allowed us complete confidence in your ability to walk us through the process with ease. We applaud you both on your integrity, diligence and promptness on reporting back to us information after each showing and open house, through out this creative cycle. How easy it all fell into place, the experience was like magic. Many thanks for your outstanding service and a job well done. We would be happy to be a reference for you and would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone. Peter & Barbara Bono

Hi Scott, It was a pleasure having you assist us in purchasing our new home. We especially appreciated your promptness, courteous manner, and your candid assessments of some of the properties we viewed. You came highly recommended from our daughter and her husband and we wouldn't hesitate being a reference for any future clients. Thanx again. We will, no doubt, see you at Tims' once we get our move completed. Take care,
- John and Arleen
As for the real estate transaction, it was terrific. We have already recommended you to friends who are looking for a home and we will certainly do so again. You were most helpful and accommodating at every stage, and you made a stressful time much less so. Stephen and I have, between us, a fair amount of experience in dealing with realtors, and we certainly know what kind of service we like to receive when purchasing or selling. You provided the level of service we were looking for: prompt, knowledgeable, and courteous. When things went wrong, through no fault of yours, you stepped in to make it right. We would be more than happy to provide a reference for future clients and if (God forbid!) we ever move again, you will be the first to know. We both wish you continued success, and we hope to see you around Tsawwassen. Karen and Stephen

Scott, As I am sure you are aware you helped make our first home buying experience a pleasant one. Your knowledge and flexibility were perfect. Your understanding of the local condo and townhouse market impressed me. We appreciated your patience as you walked us through each phase of the purchasing process. One aspect of our experience which really stands out in my mind was your moral standing regarding a difference of opinion and morality with one of your peers. To have strong sales skills is one thing but to succeed with moral integrity is I am sure what will separate you from your competitors in the end. I would recommend you to absolutely anyone. Jason and myself would be more than happy to be used as a reference for future potential clients. Sincerely,
- Pam & Jason Tregaskis
Hi Scott, Both Josh and I can't express enough how great it was having you help us get into our first home together. You really made navigating the whole home buying process incredibly easy and really took the time to help us understand everything. With a little luck hopefully we'll be in a position to work with you again in a few years to upgrade to a house !! See you soon,

Dear Scott, As you may recall, some three months ago now, you helped Habiba and I with our house purchase in Tsawwassen; being recent ‘arrivals’, our first in Canada. It was my intention to contact you sooner to thank you for all your efforts on our behalf but I’ve only recently returned home after a few months on overseas business. We’d both like to express our sincere gratitude and appreciation in the way you helped organise, manage and complete our transaction. I think the most important and impressive aspect for us was the manner which you employed to conduct business on our behalf. This can best be summed up as one of overall professionalism, combined with a no-nonsense, friendly approach. As a result you promoted and maintained our confidence throughout the whole process. By identifying our needs early on, you selected homes for viewing; all of which we felt well worth consideration. However if it wasn’t for your ‘walk-round’ critical analysis in each instance, our focus would’ve been lost and perhaps we’d’ve not been able to find the place as near to our original requirements as we’d have liked. Well it paid off! The house we finally settled on has proven to be superb in all departments and we’re all extremely happy, thanks to you. I’d like you to know as a result of your service I’ll have no hesitation in recommending you and your company to friends, colleagues and associates for future business. Very Best Regards

Please allow Marion and myself the opportunity to thank you for all efforts in regards to the purchase of the property 1491 Duncan Drive in Beach Grove. Buying a home is one of the most important decisions one makes in their lives. It is financial but it is also about family, community as well as an investment. It takes a commitment on our part to initiate the procedure and in doing so having an agent that becomes part of your life and a resource in the myriad of questions, contacts and contracts that come up as part of the home buying process. Having you involved was a plus for the Nordin Family. We all looked forward to each stage of the purchase knowing that our interests were being served with you involved. Always smiling, positive about outcomes and knowledgeable were benchmarks in your association with us. We wish you well, looking forward to further connection with you as the closing date on Duncan Drive nears.
- Steve, Marion, Travis and Caitlin + Adia
Hope you are well. We have a house full of guests for Christmas, so we are really appreciating a larger home at the moment. We are all very happy with our new house. Have a wonderful Christmas and a successful New Year – be assured that we are recommending you to everyone – hopefully we can direct some business your way.
- Steve and Liz Oldham
Scott Walker sold our property in less than a week at a price close to the asking. He was straightforward and clear in his advice, helpful in our preparations for sale and invariably accessible and professional. The next time I am looking to buy or sell a home in the Delta. Tsawwassen or Ladner area, I will go to Scott.
- Gregory Sherwood
We were very please with the attention and service we received from Scott. We always enjoyed meeting & spending time with him. Our daughter and son-in-law followed us to Ladner & we had no hesitation in recommending Scott to them. They spent more time with Scott than us, as we bought the second house we saw. They weren’t sure if they wanted a house or townhouse, but Scott was very patient with them, & they are happy with their decision.
- Charles and Doreen Warner
We would highly recommend Scott to any of our friends. His service was excellent and generally I think of sales people as pushy. He was not!! He showed a lot of patience & was always there when we needed him. Scott….YOU ROCK!!

Scott: We just wanted to take the opportunity to thank you for all your hard work with regard to the sale of our home in Tsawwassen. We realize it was a unique property – a walk out rancher, built on the hillside, with the bedrooms downstairs – not suitable for every family. However, your continued marketing, advertising and open houses produced multiple offers. We especially appreciated your constant communication with us, your professionalism and your attention to detail in every area of the sale of the house. In our minds the energy you put into the sale of our home suggested that you were both interested and engaged. We have already recommended you to our friends and wish you much continued success in the real estate business. Sincerely,
- Mark & Rebekah
