Single Family Sales
“When I purchased my home through Fred and Shannon – SEG – it was clear to me that they were concerned about finding me the right house – not making a commission. They found for me a beautiful home right in the heart of Saratoga Springs and now my wife and I can walk to the racetrack and downtown. SEG has handles a number of my other real estate issues, from all levels of home repairs to advisement on my out-of-town real estate purchases. They spent a lot of time advising and helping me on those purchases, even though they received no commission and I had other real estate professionals from these other areas involved. – they simply wanted to help me.” -Dan D., Saratoga Springs
“My wife and I were looking for our first home, when a co-worker suggested I call Fred. As first time home buyers, we had a lot to learn and Fred walked us through every step, including the inspections and negotiations. In the end he saved us over $20,000 and we still call on him for advice and suggestions on improvements. We are very happy with our purchase and very happy to have had Fred as our realtor.” -Dori and Jason Fitzpatrick
“When myself and my family were looking to relocate from the NYC area to the Capital District, a friend referred us to Fred Scheidt. Fred worked with us, one on one to help us get familiar with the area and determine what we wanted in a new home. He helped us through the entire process, from start to finish, including dealing with issues locally, while we were out of town. We now have a great new home and we couldn’t be happier. Thanks Fred” -Mike and Diane Augeri
SALES – INVESTMENT
“I chose Fred Scheidt, as a buyers agent, when purchasing my first investment property. I chose him over all the big named Realtors because of his years of knowledge and experience, not as a Realtor but as a property investor. He owns numerous properties in Saratoga Springs and he is a very successful landlord. He also has vast experience renovating, remodeling and maintaining these properties. His investment experience has given him personal knowledge on buying, selling, maintaining and renovating properties. I do not know of any other Realtor that has the same experience. That is why I chose Fred Scheidt.
Most Realtors are more concerned about making a sale than protecting the person they represent. Fred is more concerned about finding the right property, and in my case a profitable and affordable investment. He saved me thousands of dollars by steering me away from overpriced or properties that exceeded my renovation budgets. He was able to point out the costly repairs and replacement expenses, in these century old houses. His knowledge as a landlord proved to be invaluable as well, sharing his knowledge and experiences with renting and dealing with tenants.
When Realtors complete the sale, you usually don’t see them again. Fred continued to stay in contact with me. During my renovations, he was available offering me advice. When I was near completion of my first apartment renovation and behind a very tight schedule, he showed up with one of his workers. They both helped me put in the hardwood floors and this put me back on schedule. There is no other Realtor that would do that.
Anytime I call him and he gladly offer any advice or assistance. I call him to this day. In our society that offers little loyalty or customer service, Fred Scheidt is the exception to that rule. If I buy or sell a property, I will always, use him as my Realtor.” -Leonard J Fornabia, Northern Tier Properties Corp.
Sales – Commercial
“Fred Scheidt represented myself and my partners when we were looking for a commercial property for a new business endeavor. After we had made several attempts to negotiate with the seller, Fred was able to put together a deal that worked for everyone. After sealing the deal, Fred assisted us in getting the various permits needed by both the City of Saratoga Springs and The State of New York, in order for us to open in time for the crucial summer season. Fred went above and beyond to help our business get started off right.”
