Jaymes Nowicki recommends K. Scott Hawkins

We highly recommend Scott. I can recall our first conversation in how he offered a friendly reminder that the home buying process should be an enjoyable process. He explained how surprised his clients normally are when at the end they realize how smooth everything went. To his credit a lot has to do with him. There are many attributes that made our experience especially easy. He is someone that listens intently. He incredibly knowledgeable and thorough. He is offers opinions only when asked, and is critical in the best way possible (Trust us you need this). Most importantly, he makes himself available and is present with a purpose. You feel like you are his only client even while you know that you are not. With that said, he knows numbers extremely well (Previous CFO). He knows the market, price points, comps and is and is a valuable resource when determining how to list and where to start with an offer. We look forward to working with him again in the future.

Creative Director / Physician

Scott was funny, personable, knowledgeable, and extremely helpful. Purchasing a home from afar can be very stressful. However, Scott took away the guess work and actually made the process fun for us. That being said, Scott was attentive, professional, timely, and transparent. Also, our young son forgot his flip flops at the house and Scott gave them back to us at closing (three months later). That's good service! Thank you, Scott!

Tareq recommends K. Scott Hawkins


I have just completed the process of buying my first home, honestly a dream come true. I am not sure how I would have done it without Scott. I came in to the US market as a total newbie and he made everything so easy for me. I initially told him what I was looking for, he compiled a full detailed list of all properties matching my preference. I chose the townhouse I wanted and he got me inside for a look the next day. He arranged for everything (Inspection,pest,HVAC...etc) and they were done in no time. He would point out stuff that I did not even notice and demanded the sellers fix/clean.

We had some hiccups with my mortgage lender, and Scott was the main reason everything worked out eventually. I was in constant contact with him, he was very supportive. Scott answers my SMS messages in no time (I guess the longest time he took was like 5 minutes, no kidding). He literally answers my messages any time I send him that I doubt he goes to sleep at night.

He was in close contact with the seller's agents and took all necessary steps to secure the deal the even though my lender put the whole thing at risk multiple times. Honestly the best part was that I felt Scott was fighting for it, he was in touch with the lender's representative to facilitate stuff.

Now that it is over, I feel I was lucky that I got to deal with him. I am very grateful to Scott for all his help.

I told Scott that I have might have plans to invest in real estate later and that I will call him for that.

I would be more than happy to answer any questions if you are considering working with him (ask Scott for my number if you have any questions)

Amy Bugno recommends K. Scott Hawkins

Scott went above and beyond for my home-buying process. As a single woman and first-time home buyer, I needed a lot of direction and guidance. He was there with me every step of the way - always quickly responding to my texts, emails, and calls, answering every question, big and small. I truly felt like he took the time to understand my priorities, must-haves, and nice-to-haves, and helped me find the most perfect home! I now consider Scott a friend and highly recommend him to everyone I know!

Registered Nurse

Scott has been a huge help to me on my journey as a first time home-buyer. He was very helpful in finding properties that met my needs and really helped to guide me through a process that very confusing and nerve wracking. I most appreciated how available he was for questions and advice and with quick responses every time I needed him. Scott is a very friendly agent who is easy to talk to and made me feel comfortable and confident. I would definitely recommend his services to anyone looking to buy a home, especially someone who might be nervous about the process like I was in the beginning.

Scott was fantastic in helping us find our new home in a very short period of time, and in a tight market. He was super responsive and on top of everything from A to Z. We will be back with him again when we turn around to sell. Look no further, you've found your guy!

Scott is one of the most HUMBLE and CARING realtor I have ever worked with. His was there every step of the way and was there to answer any questions with a smile l, no matter how horrible my questions were. As a first time home buyer and military vet he was there for everything and made it a whole lot less stressful. Even after closing he is still helping me, not just as a realtor, but as a friend. Dont choose any other realtor but him. You will not regret it!

Leah B recommends K. Scott Hawkins

Academics at UNC Kenan-Flagler

It has been an absolute pleasure working with Scott. My husband and I are first time home buyers and were completely nervous about going the process of buying a home. Fortunately, we found Scott (through a referral) as our realtor and he made us feel comfortable and treated us like family. Not only was Scott super supportive and there for us throughout the entire process and offering us much needed guidance, he made every effort and succeeded in keeping everything on track with our timeline. He's always just a call or text away and he never missed a beat. I am so so happy we were blessed enough to have Scott as our realtor and that he worked closely with us to find a place we are extremely happy to call our first home.

Rose Ann Plummer recommends K. Scott Hawkins

Appreciated K. Scott Hawkins’ quick responsiveness to my request to view 2 homes. He viewed them himself before the actual viewings which was helpful because he already knew details in the houses. He was already waiting for me at the first house before I arrived so there was no delay. Scott was cheery, informative, professional, and did not rush me. I will recommend Scott to all who may ask me for a recommendation of a realtor!

Manager, Belted Goat @ Fearrington Village

It gives me great pleasure to write this recommendation for Brian Turner. Brian and I met at work almost three years ago, and he has been a dependable worker and a good friend to me ever since, and I fully support his decision to pursue his career in real estate.

Brian is without question one of the most benevolent and sincere individuals I've ever met. He genuinely cares about people and takes his position at work and in life very seriously. At Fearrington, we pride ourselves on providing nothing but the best in customer service and hospitality, and Brian holds these ideals to utmost importance. I also believe his outgoing personality and his problem solving skills will continue be an asset to him in his real estate efforts, and I know he will be successful in any endeavors he pursues.

Brian Turner is one of the most intelligent, well-rounded people I’ve had the pleasure of knowing. I worked with him in the restaurant industry, and was so excited when he transitioned into real estate, the field that fits him like a glove.
Brian knows most everyone around the Chapel Hill/Durham area, and all of them are like family to him. You feel that when you get to know him, too.
I have great anticipation and high hopes for him, and the way he will touch people’s lives and help them find their ideal home.
