Before beginning his successful real estate career, Scott Slutsky spent 25 years working with and speaking at global conferences for the financial services industry. A skilled public speaker, he has made appearances in countries such as the United Arab Emirates, Russia, India and China.
As he watched the world change through the years, Slutsky noticed a unique opportunity in real estate. Today, he still uses his business acumen and presentation skills to make a difference in the lives of others around the world and employs that same ability to connect with an audience to build strong client relationships. Now a top-producing real estate agent for Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Chicago, he works with everyone from first-time to luxury buyers, specializing in single-family homes throughout Chicago and the North Shore.
For Slutsky, working in real estate is all about educating clients, keeping them informed and providing them with the best tools in the industry. In fact, he runs a daily blog called What’s the Buzz, which includes a blend of current headlines, humor and real estate marketing.
Slutsky’s ability to exercise excellent customer service through active listening has contributed to his success. “I have a lot of energy and a very positive personality,” he says. “I like to be the quarterback so I can keep an eye on the entire process from preapproval to inspection to closing.”
Today, Slutsky is part of a select group of real estate professionals who have earned the Certified International Property Specialist designation. This network includes more than 3,500 real estate professionals in 45 countries. Additionally, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices has recognized Slutsky as an office leader, and he has garnered numerous multimillion-dollar monthly sales awards. Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices also presented him with its Leading Edge Society award in 2018 and 2019.
