As the former owner and broker of Coldwell Banker Door County Horizons, Ik now what it takes to run a successful real estate company, what it is like to market the best properties in Northern Door County and the Sturgeon Bay area, and what it means to be part of the prestigious Coldwell Banker brand.  That is why in 2010 (after 3 years of negotiations with the wonderful Joyce Bytoff) I merged Door County Horizons with Coldwell Banker The Real Estate Group.  Coldwell Banker The Real Estate Group was the #1 company in Northeast WI...with 3 offices in Door County we now became the #1 company in Door County.  I was then able to focus all of my attention on my clients and customers and quickly became the #1 Coldwell Banker in Door County (2011-16),
Joyce left a succession plan after her passing, they sold to another family run Coldwell Banker franchise from Northern IL, Honig-Bell.  We are now part of the #1 Coldwell Banker Franchise in the Nation with offices throughout IL and WI (think where buyers come from for Door County property).  I am thankful to be part of this great group, the training, web marketing, advertising tools, are second to none.  In 2017 all offices became Coldwell Banker The Real Estate Group.

Scott was a great asset in our purchase of real property in Door County.  I would recommend him to anyone who is interested in buying real estate in Door County.  He is completely client focused rather than thinking about his own concerns.  Kyle P.

Scott is the ultimate professional and knows the Door County market and techniques for selling into it better than any agent I know. While many properties sit on the market for years, Scott sold mine before the yard signs even went up, and at a good price. Very satisfied.  Bruce A.

Scott was recommended to us by one of his neighbors. We are so grateful for her advice. Scott was perfect for our situation. Our buying process was a little complicated because most of it was long distance. I live in Boston and was working with a friend in Door County to buy a place. Scott was invaluable. He knew the local market, was willing to work with my friend in Wisconsin as well as with me in Boston. He helped us zero in on properties that truly fit our need. He took the time to find out what our goals and limits were and tailored the search to properties that were appropriate and in our price range.  Laura R.

Scott has demonstrated an ability to get results and keep focused on the objective at hand. I have found him to be of extremely high integrity and supportive of mutual goals.Scott is easy to work with and will be persistent in achieving excellent results.  Gordy W.

Scott's tactical approach to this challenging short sale was undaunting.  Scott remained professional and put in a tremendous amout of effort to see this sale through.  Scott shines above-we are very grateful to have worked him and see the process complete.  Can't say enough good things.  Victoria and James M.

Scott was extremely helpful in us purchasing this vacant land.  so much so that Scott is now our "go to" guy for any future real estate matters.  Richard K. & Linda M.

Scott was great.  Very professional, trustworthy, and accomodating.  Gerald and Jean M.

We first met Scott Bader when we bought a unit in Ephraim Yacht Harbor Condo in 1988.  He helped sell that condo and assisted us in 1991 when boought our unit at Anchorage Cove and again when we just sold our unit there.  As you can see Scott has helped us over the years and we think the world of him.  Ed & Audrey R.

I typically don’t compete surveys but we were very pleased with Scott and everything he brought to the table.  The process went smoothly and a lot of credit goes to him.  Mark W.
