K. Scott Hawkins

Agent Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices York Simpson Underwood Realty - Chapel Hill North Carolina
As a native North Carolinian, hailing from Asheville, I have come to know and love what the locals call “The Southern Most Part of Heaven.” It’s an address that I claim with great affection. I truly believe that the most important part of the real estate transaction is not in purchasing the house but finding the home. My goal is to build a relationship with my client that lasts long after the sale.

Prior to obtaining my real estate license, I attended Western Carolina University where I graduated with a B.A. in Music Industry & Piano Performance. My vast experience in finance and human resources, within the areas of architecture, design and art, allows me to understand the needs and wants of my clients.
In my free time I volunteer with various community organizations, serving on the Board of Directors with Sisters’ Voices as well as specializing in fundraising and special events production for several organizations.

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)

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!

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!

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.

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!

Scott was a fantastic agent and ally during our home buying process. He is incredibly knowledgeable of the area and market. I could recommend him on his skill alone, but am happy to report that Scott is also a lovely person and a complete pleasure to spend time with.

I enjoyed working with Scott throughout the process. From the beginning he quickly picked up on what my wife and I were looking for and had an organized plan to explore the area where we wanted to buy. I felt like I saw the right mix of property to best understand what we could get for our budget in the style and locations we wanted. When we had some complications after our offer was accepted Scott kept us informed, helped us navigate the process and provided some essential help while we were out of state. We wouldn’t have had a smooth and on time closing without him.

Scott was fantastic to work with. Purchasing a home and relocating from across the country can be stressful, but Scott made it simple. My husband and I felt like Scott instantly got us and what we were looking for in our new home. Working with Scott felt like working with a good friend, as we knew very early on that we could trust him. He was organized and on top of everything throughout our search and closing process. We couldn’t have asked for a better advocate and trusted partner. We’d highly recommend working with Scott!

Scott spent several weekends showing me lots of houses in the footprint I had given him. He was always prepared with an accurate list and on time for all our scheduled appointments. He went above board to have colleagues show me homes if he could not make an appointment. In closing he walked me through each step of the way. Highly recommend his services!

We are pleased with the job that Scott did selling our townhouse. He handled everything for us as we had left the community. I would highly recommend him for someone looking for a realtor

Scott was super helpful in our recent home purchase. Mostly because we were out of town the whole time and Scott was able to step in and assist us in purchasing the home. He helped us step by step to understand the process and what all it entailed and made sure we felt comfortable the whole time! He was also super friendly which is nice when I had to ask him 9,000 questions and he didn't get annoyed :)

Scott was very professional, always on the job and quick to respond to any email or call. Selling a house while living abroad can be very stressful, but it was nice to know that I had Scott on the job who I could totally trust. I was lucky to have him represent me!

Scott Hawking was our first real estate agent in the Chapel Hill area. He found us the perfect house in Chapel Hill, near Jordan Lake, as we requested. This will be the 53rd house I have lived in. My wife and I have lived in many countries around the world. Scott works fast and is a good listener so he understands what customers really need. We were more than satisfied — we got the perfect house for us.

Satisfied Client
Since 2004 we have moved nine times, so we know how to evaluate a real estate agent. Scott is simply the best: totally professional, extremely resourceful, and exceptionally sensitive to client needs — both expressed and implied. He not only found us our home in the 48 hours we had allotted for our search, he plugged us into service providers in our new community so that we were fully functioning homeowners from the day we closed. Scott is smart, creative and fun! We highly recommend him.

Scott was an always present partner in the sale of my home. He responded quickly to any of my concerns and was constantly reassuring that all was going well. His evaluations were accurate and advice practical and wise.
Scott even oversaw the small repairs that were needed to close the deal....something I truly appreciated.
He is kind, thoughtful, and always smiling - a pleasure to have represent me in this transaction.

Scott helped me and my wife purchase our first home and was a steady source of information for us while we navigated home buying for the first time. We would recommend him to anyone!

Scott was the right person to assist me into home ownership. I was impressed by his knowledge, expertise, familiarity with available properties, and his understanding of my specific concerns. A great friend and realtor!

Scott is able to understand clients quite well. Once he figures out what you need, he refers you to properties that match your criteria. In this sense, he is a very good buyer agent.

The only issue that I had is with his form demanding an additional $300 in fees from the buyer. It may be the norm in NC, but to me (coming from MA), it was unusual.

So 5/5 points for Scott and a little concern about the firm buyer agent fees (that may be usual in NC??)

Within my busy schedule, Scott made the merging of my FSBO first home and the perfect new buyers, seamless. From the straight to the point questions to connecting me with the right team, my transaction was made with no fuss, received asking price and I could not be happier with the outcome. It was a win-win situation all around. Thank you again Scott and your team for making the selling of my beloved first home a success!
