My clients and their referrals are the most important aspect of my real estate business; without them, there wouldn't be any business to have. I always do my best to ensure that everyone I work with is completely satisfied and that I stay at the top of my clients' minds whenever they know of someone interested in buying, selling, or investing in real estate. That's the reason why over 80% of my business comes from past clients, and referrals from clients and their friends or family.
Here's what those special clients are saying about the services that Dave Schott has provided them with... and I look forward to working with you and having your testimonial on this page too! Dave Schott
Of course I wouldn’t mind giving you a testimonial! Especially considering that I lived in Florida and bought a house in Missouri without looking at it first, I would rate my experience a 10 out of 10.
You made buying a house very easy on me and I really appreciate you constantly looking out for my best interest when it came to negotiating on repairs needed to the home.
It seemed like you were right down the street because we spoke so often and you were so attentive! You were very prompt in returning my calls and getting answers to my questions! I could tell you thoroughly understood the business and you were very experienced in knowing the properties in the O’Fallon area.
The lender that you referred was phenomenal to work with and your partnership with them always seemed to be very connected. I would definitely repeat this buying experience again and contact you to be my Broker!! Patricia
This letter is meant to characterize Dave Schott, the real estate agent. I’ve known Dave for 12 years and have worked closely with him as my agent and consultant in building, remodeling or developing nearly 50 homes for sale.
Dave is very knowledgeable about residential construction, with a keen eye for detail. Dave’s persistence and positive attitude has always helped me to forge ahead, regardless of the project. He is determined, hardworking and trustworthy. Dave is passionate about his business and resolved to provide excellence in everything he does. I could not ask for a better agent. Tim
"I was fortunate enough to work with Dave Schott at Remax Edge. After repeated mishaps and failures with another "reputable" listing agent, I decided to call Remax. The entire process was different in a good way. They took steps that my previous agent said were not worth the time or effort. I had showings immediately with Dave, and not 1 but 2 offers within three weeks. During the course of negotiating a contract, we even received a backup offer!
The entire team made the process painless and provided guidance every step of the way. From Dave handling the offer negotiations to Jen as our closing coordinator. I could not have asked for a better team. Dave promised to provide a much better experience and he delivered in spades! I will absolutely call him the next time I need to list my home for sale. Thank you to Dave Schott and Remax Edge." Kathleen
"My husband and I met Dave Schott by accident while viewing houses on Zillow. He arrived at a home we found in Wildwood and showed us around. He was pleasant, personable, and had a vast knowledge of local areas in which we had been looking and right way we felt comfortable. We thought, “he is the guy for us” and we asked him to be our agent. We had very specific ideas of what we were interested in and we were not in a hurry. We had been saving all our lives for this. We wanted property, a nice view, space between neighbors but didn’t want to move far way from family and friends. Dave was responsive and determined.
In only a few months, he found us our dream house! To this day, he will always be the person that lead my family to the right place for us. He helped us achieve the unimaginable and we will be forever grateful to him. I recommend Dave Schott for anyone ready to meet someone genuine and kind and someone who cares about the customer.
Thank you, Dave!" Tammy and Dan
"Dave Schott and Remax were excellent to work with. With his knowledge of the market, he helped us to price our house correctly and our house was under contract within 8 days. Their marketing plan worked as advertised and everyone was great to work with. Communication with the team was easy, and they answered all of our questions timely and to our satisfaction. We were highly satisfied with their efforts!" Dan & Candyce
"Buying a home IS a big deal. It's a pretty substantial change for you and your family. One thing to make sure of is that you have the right team in your corner to help walk you through all the variables involved in your decision process. I had the pleasure of working with Dave Schott. Dave was extremely knowledgeable about the current market, and was very direct while keeping a personable demeanor.
I like when real estate agents can cut through the "fluff" and just lay out the pro's and con's with each property. Dave did this very well and gave a nice 3rd party perspective to eliminate any "emotional" ties to a property. You could definitely tell that he had a lot of experience in the industry when we hit the negotiation stage. He also suggested a financing avenue that I was not aware of through my current lender. Turns out, he was spot on and helped me move ahead with that option. I would definitely recommend Dave to anyone who is buying or selling a home." Mark
“I was fortunate enough to connect with Dave (Schott) through Zillow after a very disappointing experience with another agent. I quickly felt very confident in Dave’s experience and his willingness to stand up for what he knew I was trying to accomplish. He helped me through every step of the process and was always available for me if I had questions. I was thoroughly at ease with the outcome of all our efforts together and I have every confidence that Dave helped me negotiate the best terms on the right property for me and my kids. Thank you Dave!” Jason
"Since 2009, St. Louis County’s Office of Community Development has worked with Dave Schott, as a preferred REALTOR, on the purchase and sale of over 25 homes. These homes are part of housing programs designed to purchase and renovate homes for sale to first-time homebuyers. Dave’s experience in evaluating homes to purchase, construction cost estimating- with an eye towards redesigning existing space, and timely closings, has helped to make these programs a success. If you are looking for a home or thinking about utilizing down payment assistance Dave is your “Go-To” realtor." Adam, CD Manager St. Louis County - Office of Community Development
I would highly recommend Dave for any real estate needs. he has helped me with the purchase of both a primary residence and an investment property.
Dave was very keen on understanding our needs prior to providing us suggestions and properties to review, in order to help ensure he was using our time wisely. He helped us weight pros/cons of properties, provided both research needed to help with decisions as well as anything additional asked, and was extremely knowledgeable on all required aspects of the transaction. He ultimately helped us secure a competitive and dependable lender that resulted in 2 smooth transactions. Dave is a great guy, which makes working with him even more enjoyable. Thanks Dave for everything you did and we look forward to additional transactions and referrals for you! Mick
"My husband and I just closed on our first house yesterday and we are so thankful we had Dave Schott helping us! Dave told us from the very beginning to be patient because there are always bumps in the road, he was right! My type-A personality went into overdrive and I was fairly panicked about halfway through the process, but he was so kind, patient, and reassuring. He was always available to help us and was excellent at communication. I was able to call, email, or text him virtually at anytime and received a response quickly. I would recommend Dave to anyone looking to a buy a home - particularly their first home. He explains everything thoroughly and well... & is a very hard worker."
Rita & Gary
"This was the third transaction that I have used Dave Schott. As in the past he and his crew have done an excellent job. Dave was always available and happy to answer any questions. So well that I just recommended him to my daughter who listed her house with them." Ryan
“It’s my pleasure to recommend Dave as a real estate agent for anyone who is searching for their new home. Earlier this year I connected with Dave to begin searching for a new home and decided on new construction. There were some challenges along the way and Dave was highly supportive, responsive and attentive in getting issues resolved. If not for Dave’s tenacity, the issues would not have been resolved as quickly. He was also very helpful in assisting with my design choices. I’m super excited to spend my first Christmas in my new home – thanks to Dave!” Henricks Family
"After our wedding, Dave provided my wife and I with experienced insight while looking to buy our first home. We came into things with little knowledge and came out as confident homeowners. Dave was super responsive, guided us through the negotiation process and was a joy to be around throughout the entire process." Rob & Sam
"I had Dave Schott as my buyer's agent for our recent purchase, and he is outstanding. He is responsible, easy to talk to, on time on appointment, and reliable. He also demonstrated superb skills in negotiation for the price and repairs. I recommend him and will use him again in the future as my agent." Kevin
"Dave Schott is truly amazing at what he does and I cannot recommend him highly enough. I hope that the following review portrays accordingly-
By the time I met Dave, my wife and I had already worked with numerous agents and other real estate so-called ‘professionals’ over the prior weeks. We were selling our home, selling a rental home and hunting for a new home on our own. At this point, we had literally worked with five to six agents, if not more. None of them I was impressed with. They did their job, and left…they all lacked passion, spark, drive and motivation in my opinion – just a typical salesman. It was clear they wanted a sale and had no intention of investing in the ideas we wanted for a future home to live for decades.
By blind chance, we ran across Dave as we were hunting for a house in Chesterfield. I didn’t give Dave much of a chance at first and figured he would be like the rest. I was wrong, 100%. Dave always came to the table prepared with extensive research, knowledge and strategy. He thinks four steps ahead. He understood exactly what we were looking for and the reasons why. If I wasn’t so far into the process with selling my other two homes (two separate agents because I wasn’t happy with either), I would have gladly let Dave sell both of mine. However, Dave and I focused on buying a new house. Once we zeroed in on the house we wanted, Dave worked his magic. He was aggressive, persistent, informative and remained in VERY close contact with me. If I sent him an e-mail at 1130 at night, it was not uncommon to get a reply within minutes, a text at 8 in the morning, etc. We knew very quickly that we had an advocate representing us with the largest purchase we would likely ever make.
The partnership with Dave turned out to be invaluable as we were purchasing from a very difficult seller. Dave remained patient & persistent as we just pushed towards the finish line. I’m convinced that he chiseled every possible dime out from the purchase price. If we would have been fortunate enough for Dave to be our listing agent on the sales, I’m have no reservations knowing that he would have worked just as hard on that end. During our three transactions, we had many speed bumps, set-backs and delays. Dave was the consistent professional throughout the entire process who held it together. He was there with us all the way through closing, and even after.
I have ZERO doubt that Dave saved us many thousands of dollars and without him, we would not be living in our dream home. All in all – if you are looking for a TRUE PROFESSIONAL who will work his tail off for you; you won’t go wrong with Dave Schott. For years to come I will be sending referrals to Dave as I know that he won’t waiver with his drive and professionalism to serve his clientele. We have already recommended Dave to close friends of ours and they have quickly come to the same conclusion as us." Grant & Melissa
"Selling your home is a daunting task…choosing the right agent can make all of the difference in the world. I contacted Dave Schott with Remax Edge. Due to Dave’s vast knowledge of the local market we were immediately provided with an in-depth evaluation. Our home was priced competitively and sold very quickly. It was such a pleasure working with Dave from initial contact, through the contract, to the closing. I would refer Dave without reservation. Please feel free and tell Dave that Bobbie sent you." Joe & Denise
"My wife and I recently worked with Dave Schott of Remax in purchasing our first home and all I have to say is great experience start to finish. His knowledge of not only the real estate market but also home construction was extremely helpful to us as first time homebuyers. We very much appreciated that Dave was always available to answer questions and was very quick to respond via email or text as well. He was instrumental in orchestrating all communication with the lender, appraiser and inspectors and everything couldn’t have gone more smoothly. Would recommend him to anyone looking to purchase a house in the area." Ken & Natalie
"Great Service!I found a great starter home within 3 weeks. I must admit, I was apprehensive at first, as my previous experience with a real estate agent was subpar, left a bad taste in my mouth. But Dave Schott was the exact opposite of what I have come to expect. He was helpful, diligent, and most importantly trustworthy. I felt comfortable every step of the way. He told me if a home would have problems with financing, or what he honestly thought about a home. He is a paragon among agents in this industry, and you would be lucky to have him." Erin
"Dave Schott and Remax exceed even the highest of hopes when selling a home. My wife and I had placed our home on the market with a different real estate group and had no success in a 2 month span. We decided a different approach was needed and a friend referred Dave Schott. Dave came out to our home and discussed what is so different about his group and we without hesitation signed up with them. Long story short, in less then a month we had 10 showings and several offers. Contract and closing within a month. Dave was able to negotiate an extra $10,000 to our asking price on top of it as well. Amazing!!! We HIGHLY recommend Remax and Dave Schott Smith for anyone's real estate needs." Brandon & Lisa
"I’ve worked with several different realtors over the years and most seem to just be dabbling in it or doing it on the side. Dave and his team on the other hand are truly professional, great with customer service and really know what they are doing. It’s nice to work with a team of professionals for once." Brian
"Dave negotiated for us in such a way that we knew that his commission was secondary to our getting the best price. He helped us hold our ground until the seller budged. It would have been easy for him to say "Just take it." He would have made some extra money on a % basis, but he truly represented our interests." Steven
"Dave Schott and Re/max Edge did an amazing job of listing and selling my home in 1 month. I had previously listed my home with a different team and my home sat for 2 months with out a single showing or call for information. After switching to Re/max my house had a showing 2 days later. Within 2 weeks my home was under contract and for more then the listing price! The whole time Dave Schott kept me updated and informed on the status of the sale. I am 100% confident that Dave Schott and Re/max Edge can do the same for anyone looking for a top notch real-estate team." Linda
"David Schott with REMAX EDGE was an absolute pleasure to work with. He helped my fiancée and I purchase our first home. Being first time home buyers meant we had a lot of questions, Dave had answers to our questions and even presented us with questions we had not thought about. If you are looking for a home in the St. Peters area Dave is the realtor for you." Kristina & Donnie
"As a first-time home buyer, I didn't know what to expect, but Dave explained everything to us. He has full knowledge of the marketplace, and he is well versed in the procedures involving buying a house. Dave was always available to show us properties and answer our questions. He helped us find a great house that is exactly what we wanted. He always had our best interest in mind, and it was a pleasure working with him to find our new home. Dave is a smart, dedicated real estate agent, and I highly recommend his services." Cody
"Our agent was Dave Schott. He was FABULOUS! He came out on a Thursday, took pictures; the house was on the internet on Friday night and we had a full price offer in 3 DAYS! It was incredible . I would have never believed the house would have sold that quickly. The selling process was painless and very easy to understand. I would HIGHLY recommend Dave for any future sales!" The Hoffman's
"My fiance and I worked with Dave Schott. Dave was great! This was our first home we purchased and the entire process was simple and seamless. Dave was extremely well versed and had no problem explaining the process to us. He has prompt responses and made sure we purchased the home of our dreams. We couldn't be happier with the service and professionalism that Dave provided to us. Overall, great first-time home buyer experience." Kim & Mark
"My wife and I began the search for our first home a few months ago. Although we had several ideas there were many things we were unsure about what we wanted in our future home. We did not know the area as well as we liked and did not know very much about the process of buying a home. Thankfully we had the chance to meet David Schott at an open house. Even after visiting just a few homes we really began to feel like we would be able to find our dream first house with his help. David is honest and straightforward; we felt like we could ask him anything and always felt comfortable knowing he was looking out for us. The process was not always easy and we did miss out on a few homes that we could have seen ourselves in do to others outbidding us. However David was always there to help us get back on our feet. When we finally found the home we felt was the best of all we’d seen, David helped us place the right offer and we will close on the home next week. David worked above and beyond to accommodate our schedules and was always just a call away; and we would be very happy to recommend him to others in the future. We thank him for all his help and guidance and are very pleased to have the home we dreamed about." Todd & Karen
"Working with Dave Schott and his team at Remax was an honor, and came as a huge relief considering some of the other real estate folks my family and I have attempted to work with. The first day, Dave Schott greeted us with a smile on his face and in professional attire, he pulled out a folder with a graphical breakdown of the entire process, and gave it to us along with some wisdom. The pictures and information were fantastic, but it was also his ability to explain and break things down to something easy to understand that helped the most. After a short period, the home search was underway. Believe it or not, but my family and I found the home we wanted on the first day! Dave Schott had worked with us from sun up to sun down. Literally, we walked into this beautiful home at about 8pm, checked it out, and it was approximately 9pm when we made the decision that this was our home! He didn’t stop there, that night we put in an offer, and the next day it was accepted and on paper. After that, he continued to give us his best through the entire process. He was even able to negotiate things that were extremely difficult. Dave Schott is a perfect balance of both a family man, and a professional, which made him very easy to trust. He has the highest standards of integrity, and truly advocates for his customers. My family and I consider ourselves extremely blessed to have had the opportunity to work with and meet Mr. Schott! Let me say, rest assured this is the guy you can count on to get the job done and be on your side the whole time! I still don’t how he was able to pull off the miraculous feats of strength, but he did! You want this man on your team!!!" Joe & Jean
"Realtor Dave Schott from Remax Edge Real Estate made the home buying experience and transition exciting rather than stressful. I will always be grateful for his patience, diligence, and professionalism. After receiving a transfer to St. Louis from my employer, I immediately began searching for a home. I was given two weeks to relocate to St. Louis so my house hunting began on various generic real estate sites prior to relocating. While searching these sites, I found a few intriguing homes that I was interested in. I submitted several inquiries and soon after my submissions, I received a response via email from Dave Schott. Dave addressed all my inquiries and concerns. In addition, he expressed that he was interested in knowing what my preferences would be in a new home. In a matter of hours from responding to Dave, he set up an email alert system in which I would receive notification on listings best suited with my preferences. I must admit that I was very impressed with his immediate response and proactive approach. It was evident that he was sincerely interested in assisting me in this process no matter the time constraint and challenge. Dave was very attentive to my must-have requests and it showed when he emailed me a myriad of options. Furthermore, I had disclosed to Dave that I was relocating to St Louis on a Saturday and he had three viewings scheduled for me on that Sunday! I found his dedication very comforting and truly appreciated the wealth of knowledge that he shared in regards to the home buying process and the various neighborhoods in Chesterfield. Relocating from a big city to St Louis was not an easy transition by no means but Dave made it as swift and painless as possible! Thanks Dave! I am forever grateful!" James & Carol
