Scott Nivens

REALTOR EXIT King Realty - Lakewood Ranch/Bradenton SL3417297
My name is Scott Nivens and I have over 10 years experience in representing buyers and sellers in Southwest Florida, specializing in Manatee and Sarasota Counties. I represent first time home buyers, investors, retirees, and people that are relocating.

In the mid 1990's I started flipping properties as a hobby. In 2002, property values had increased to the point where it was next to impossible to find good, profitable properties. I decided to get my license to find better deals. I ended up helping other people buy and sell their own properties. This is when I realized how much I really liked helping people in their Real Estate efforts.

“Scott not only found a property that fit my needs, He was able to negotiate a better price, with owner financing at a interest rate better than the banks had offered me. Great Job!” Roy P., Polk County

Scott is by far the best realtor I've had! He went above and beyond for me and sold my home in less than 24 hours!! He made the process smooth and enjoyable. I would highly recommend Scott for both selling your home and buying a home.

Scott helped my boyfriend and I tremendously while searching for a home. He took time out no matter if it was a week day, or weekend to show us houses. He answered any questions we had, and made the process very easy and comfortable. We finally closed our home this past week with the help of Scott. Thank you so much, Scott! 😁

Scott Nivens made the sale of my home a very easy, pleasant and seamless process. His promotion of my home brought a buyer in immediately. I was moving out of state so planned to sell my furniture. I was pleased he promoted the fact that any furniture the buyers were interested in, I would be willing to negotiate with them. He also recommended services that I would need to make my move. Thanks again Scott for selling my home. I would recommend him to anyone interesting in listing their home.

Scott Nivens, a true second miler, went above and beyond his duties as a real estate agent. He helped us find a condo site unseen, negotiated a better price before we asked, made an extra trip to take us on a video tour of the condo and the neighborhood, helped us find a loan officer, connected us to all property services and even picked up and delivered a table we bought on FB Marketplace. What a guy! Now we have a go-to Southwest Florida realtor And a new great friend.

We put Scott through the ringer with our house hunting and in the long run, we found our dream! He was more than patient with us. He met us at every house we requested to look at, and was by our side coaching us through the process every step of the way! We could not thank him enough and highly recommend him to anyone looking to purchase their forever home!

Scott's customer service is so fantastic that we felt as though we were his one and only clients! He took the time to get to know us and to learn about our needs and desires and he goes the extra mile in every step of the process. Not only is he our real estate professional...we now call him our friend.

It was a pleasure to work with Scott Nivens with EXIT King Realty. Scott made the entire process very simple as we haven't sold a house in many years. Scott understood the laws for our particular estate sale, the do's and don't for the listing. Scott also did a lot of the leg work for us since we reside out of state. Scott helped us price the property by pulling comps in the area and helping us get a couple of quick offers. I highly recommend Scott Nivens with EXIT King Realty.
