It is such a privilege for me to write this letter of recommendation for Scarlett Kier. I have known Scarlett for almost ten years. I first knew her socially as a member of the same book club. However, most of my experience with Scarlett pertains to her in the professional capacity as our realtor. My husband and I relied on her expertise and experience on four different home buying and selling occasions. She was our realtor when we bought our first home and when we sold it four years later. Very satisfied, we naturally sought out her talent when buying our second home and then again when selling this home two years later. With the sale of our second home, the proceeds were transferred to purchase another home out of state. We discovered quickly how much more complicated this type of transaction could be with multiple realtors, loan companies, and the situational factors involved. We also became more keenly aware of how efficient, knowledgeable, reliable, prompt and professional Scarlett is. She did not take for granted (even after all the years she has been in the business) our emotion, stress, and sometimes ignorance of the process. She was able to be reassuring when things got a little crazy and was always available by phone, text, or email. Scarlett was also there to help sell my parents' home of 23 years. It was not an easy move for them since they loved their home; however, it was too much for them to take care of as they continued to age. Scarlett delicately and skillfully helped my parents through that difficult process and in the end they also were very satisfied with her work. In closing, my husband and I can unconditionally say that Scarlett is an excellent realtor and, more importantly, a genuinely caring person. Even though years of success and experience qualify her above and beyond, it is her kindness and care of her clients that makes her shine. Without reservation we would recommend Scarlett to any person hunting for a home or hoping for a purchase.
I am a retired OSU faculty member and a long-time resident of Lincoln County who has been an active player in the local real estate market for the past 30 years. During that time I have both bought and sold commercial and residential properties in the Newport/Waldport area. My primary broker for much of that time has been K. Scarlett Kier, working out of the Advantage Realty office in Newport. She has done an outstanding job of not only keeping me informed about recent listings in which I might be interested, but also quickly and accurately responding to my questions about properties she has shown me. She is smart, hard-working and honest, and knows the South Lincoln County real estate market as well as anyone. She is also very thorough and prompt in preparing transaction documents. I owe a lot of my success in real estate investments to her mentoring and constant updates on what is available. She is certainly one of the very best real estate agents in the area.
Alvin and Julia James
We recently purchased a home on the Alsea River near Waldport. We were fortunate to have the assistance of Scarlett Kier of Advantage Real Estate in Newport Oregon. Scarlett was patient and worked with us to find a property that met our criteria. Scarlett has lived and worked in the Central Oregon Coast area for years and her extensive knowledge of the area was invaluable to us. We found her to be very direct and honest in sharing her knowledge of the various communities and properties, and she was very responsive in showing us any properties we wished to view. Once we entered into a contract for our home, Scarlett worked hard to close the sale by arranging and coordinating the various inspections and resolving the contingencies. We highly recommend Scarlett to anyone wishing to sell property or looking to buy property on the Central Oregon Coast. Not only is she extremely competent but she is also a delightful person to work with. We consider her a new friend.

Jim and I were so fortunate to work with Scarlett Kier when we decided to purchase a home. When searching for a realtor, Scarlett's name kept coming up as one of the best realtors to work with in Lincoln County. We quickly learned the accolades were well deserved. At the beginning of 2017, we started actively looking for our new home. We met with Scarlett and gave her our criteria and price range. During that initial meeting, she took a lot of time getting to know us and fine tune what we were looking for in a house. She became tireless in her pursuit to find us the house that would become our home. Her patience is what inspired us to keep looking, she was actively sending us prospective houses and was very easy to communicate with. One of Scarlett's many gifts is her ability to "read" her clients and search for the right fit for them. Less than a year after we first started looking, we found our dream home. I couldn't tell who was happier, us or Scarlett! The purchase transaction seemed effortless, she helped make what can be a daunting process, very smooth and stress free. Working with Scarlett was such a pleasure, we would do it again in a heartbeat!

This letter recommends Scarlett Kier, Realtor at Advantage Real Estate in Newport, Oregon. When a job change required me to sell my coastal townhome, a friend recommended I enlist Scarlett to help with the sale. While the sale took longer than we’d imagined, Scarlett was “on” the whole time, regularly checking in with me and checking in on the property in my absence. Recently, I had an additional property to sell that had languished with another agent. I re-listed it with Scarlett and she brought me a solid offer within 4 weeks. Scarlett is a straight shooter and I like that. She communicates clearly and honestly. Scarlett provides good comps and helps one to have reasonable expectations. She gives you the information and lets you make decisions but when asked, she will give an opinion. I appreciated that. Selling coastal property can be quite complex – there are so many variables. With decades of experience in Lincoln County, Scarlett provides the knowledge and expertise one needs to feel confident in the process. Aside from her professional skill set, Scarlett is a charming and warm person and is a delight to work with. I would not hesitate to recommend Scarlett Kier to anyone seeking a good and ethical realtor.
When I decided to sell my beach cottage, my property manager recommended Scarlett Kier. And now I know why. Scarlett was knowledgeable, patient and communicative. She held my hand throughout the process of setting a price and she handled multiple showings and offers with calm aplomb. My place sold quickly, and Scarlett made it a painless process. I'd recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell on the central Coast.
