Buyer ⎹ Janice Schindelbeck

"I would recommend the team of Corey and Scooter to anyone interested in buying a house or property. They are a great team and when you have questions any time of day they will respond very quickly. They will listen to you and do their best to guide you to your perfect place. It was a pleasure doing business with them."

"Our agents, Corey Ray & Scooter Gillis did an outstanding job and are the most professional realtors we have worked with. They explained everything clearly to us and were instrumental in helping us prepare our property in Forest Ridge Estates for an optimum selling price. Excellent level of customer service. They were quick to respond to any questions and always so kind and patient with us. We just loved working with them! They brought multiple offers over listing price, and our home sold. Highly recommend Corey & Scooter as agents and we give them both a 10 out of 10!"

"Corey Ray and Scooter Gillis were a dream to work with on the purchase of our first investment property. Thanks to their professionalism and knowledge in the industry the process was seamless -  quick and easy. Grateful to have found them - can't recommend them enough! Looking forward to our next purchase of an investment property! Thanks Guys!"

"We've recently (November 2022) completed escrow on a home purchase on Lake Hayden with the support, advice, and counsel of both Scooter Gillis and Corey Ray (associated with the Windermere Realty office in Coeur d'Alene, ID).  It was the culmination of a lengthy period of searching, researching, and visiting a relatively large number of properties. Throughout the "hunt", Scooter and Corey were helpful, thoughtful, and supportive of our efforts. They carefully guided us through the necessary analysis that goes along with purchasing a home, all the while doing their best to respect the guidelines they were able to extract during direct conversation with us. While they clearly had opinions about the properties we were looking at, they were always respectful of both the Seller's positions on the available properties and, at the same time, helpful in assessing the property as to whether or not it met our particular needs+wants (as Buyers). They were both available to aid us virtually at any time, day or night, to locate and evaluate a property, as well as help move through the offer, inspection, escrow, and title processing..  We are very thankful they had the patience and dedication to help us locate the best property for us.All in all, a very smooth real estate transaction (exactly what every Buyer and Seller wants)."

"We purchased a home this past summer that was listed by Corey Ray and Scooter Gillis. Corey and Scooter handled the sale so well that we hired them to sell our condo a few months later. In both instances, Corey and Scooter took on additional matters and responsibilities far beyond what was expected of them. And to help get the condo sold, took extraordinary steps to make the deal attractive. Corey and Scooter were always available to answer questions and easily handled various matters as they arose, but most importantly, they knew how to get a property sold and they knew how to get it closed. We highly recommend Corey Ray and Scooter Gillis and will not hesitate using them again for our next real estate transaction."

"We recently had the pleasure of working with Corey and Scooter for the purchase of our new home and couldn’t be more impressed. Throughout the process we found them to be incredibly helpful, insightful, and always available - often times on short notice.

Their knowledge of the market, and their negotiation skills were invaluable. We are moving from out of state and they really excel at helping facilitate home purchases like ours.  They were able to give us a great understanding of different neighborhoods, as well as provide video tours, measurements, and other insights which were critical to the process.

What really stood out was their commitment to ensuring that we found the perfect home. They really went above and beyond to help us find options that met all of our needs. We felt supported and confident throughout the entire process, and they have continued to provide amazing support even after the sale closed.

We highly recommend Corey and Scooter for anyone in need of knowledgeable and professional real estate partners. They are truly the best in the business and we are grateful to have had the opportunity to work with them."

"I was looking for a new home in CDA and we called Scooter Gillis [and Corey Ray]! The entire experience was a wonderful experience! Scooter [and Corey] were very professional and prompt! They showed us three homes and we made an offer on the third home! They knew exactly what we were looking for and were excited to make the appointments very quickly and very personable! I will recommend Scooter [and Corey] to all my friends and family! Thank you"

"I have had the best experience with Scooter Gillis at Windermere Realty, not once but twice. In 2021 with a sale and 2023 with a purchase. I experienced professionalism that was beyond my expectations. When a person buys or sells a home it can be one of the most stressful times in your life. Scooter has a way of putting that all to ease so you can focus on your other needs in life and full trust in his Real Estate expertise!

I have bought and sold lots of Real Estate in my life and I must say the only regrets I have had is that I didn't have Scooter for all of those transactions in my past!"
