More about Scott Cheng

I've worked in the real estate industry for over 10 years and have a strong work ethic, negotiation skills and commitment to protecting my client's best interests. I started Providential Real Estate as “Cheng Realty” in 2008 and since then have built it from a one-man business to a full-service brokerage. I have worked extensively with first-time home buyers, luxury property owners and real estate investors. While working with investors, I would flip between 30 and 60 properties per year. This experience allows me to analyze properties for my clients in much greater detail than most agents. I enjoy what I do and always put my client's needs FIRST and will go above and beyond to provide the best services possible in every situation.

        Scott is really helpful during my house hunting. He kept sending suggestions to me, and act very quickly once we would like to send out my offer. I’ve never missed any opportunity with him.

      • Scott helped me buy a home

          I worked with Michelle Porter who works with Scott Cheng. It was a wonderful experience and seemed to be a very smooth overall transaction. Scott has been great at involving me in social opportunities to network and meet other people and I am truly thankful my family and I have had the opportunity to work together.

        • Scott listed and sold my home

            Scott is very professional and knowledgable in the housing market in La Jolla San Diego area. His team is very genuine and pleasant to work with!

          • Scott helped me buy a home

              It was such a pleasure to work with Scott on the purchase of my condo. He was always so professional, knowledgeable, courteous to me and my family, and fun. He got me the best price for my purchase, and he even helped me find good people for renovations. I would recommend him highly!

            • Scott helped me buy a home

                Scott was great. Very knowledgeable about not only the homes he was showing us but also how much certain repairs and/or upgrades could cost us.

              • Scott helped me buy a home

                  Scott is very knowledgeable and knew the area well where we were looking. He is kind, professional, and attentive. At the time that we were looking, there weren’t very many houses, but Scott kept ours spirits up with his positivity. He returned calls and emails promptly. We are so happy we choose Scott as our agent!

                • Scott helped me buy a home

                    Scott and Michelle are very professional. They found us what we needed very quickly and did not waste our time at all. They were a pleasure to work with through the whole experience and are very knowledgeable. They are an easy recommendation to my friends.

                  • Scott helped me buy a home

                      I cannot recommend a realtor more!!!! Scott was so awesome in helping my husband and me find a house on such short notice, in the most competitive buyers market, and all from long distance. He went above and beyond in keeping in contact and helping us understand the home buying process at every step. His dedication, professionalism, and hard work helped us secure our dream house that had a lot of other bids, and was also the first home we decided to place an offer on as well! Since we were out of state, his help in exploring different properties was very helpful and I don't think we would have been able to purchase our ideal home without him! I highly recommend him to all of my friends and family because he is simply one of the best realtors I have worked with over the years! Just give him a call, and from the first meeting you will know you are in good hands!

                    • Scott and his team are all-stars. I live full-time in the Bay Area and I enlisted the Providential team's help to sell my condo in San Diego. They helped me facilitate my tenant's transition process, various renovation work, and investigate 1031 exchange opportunities. Through this process end-to-end, they have been rockstars; the communication was open, they listened and address my every concern and my condo is closing at 10% above asking after being on the market for ~1 week. I was concerned at first about being remote through this transaction but after getting Scott and Michele on board, it really provided the piece of mind that I needed. Thanks team!

                    • Scott is no pressure realtor. I recently moved to the San Diego area from the Bay Area. He made the otherwise home buying process almost painless. I had worked with a few realtors in the past, he would be among one of the best in my book. He had been been insightful and had my interests at heart. I have a few disappointments before I found the right home. His negotiation skill was put to good use and help get me the best terms for my new home.

                      - Mike Yan
                    • Scott was very helpful! We were deciding if we should refinance our home or sell it. Scott walked us through the options and did his research to back the discussion. He was prompt with follow up questions and did not pressure us either way, he made it clear, it only mattered what was best for us.

                    • Scott is extremely professional and very knowledgeable in what he does. He knows exactly how to advice the clients on properties of value. He has an eye for things that other realtors do not. I am very happy with Scott and would recommend him to my circle of friends and family.

                    • I am The Manager at Homestreet Bank Mission Gorge office. We are new to the San Diego market. Because it is so important to refer our clients to reputable business partners, I was so excited when I was given Scotts information by an existing client. I was able to pass the information along to our new client. They had the best experience. Scott was patient, supportive, and helped educate our mutual client along the way. Their family was thrilled with the service and thanks me every visit. Because I care about our reputation especially being new in town, I would never just send clients to anyone. I am grateful for his partnership and for the time care, and consideration he showed my clients. I am sure they will remain Homestreet clients for years to come. As well as clients of Scott's!

Scott and his team is very knowledgeable on San Diego's housing market. In this competitive market he definitely knows how to handle a multiple offer situation.

                    • Scott Cheng is very professional and friendly agent. I had an enjoyable experience as his customer. I was looking for house on sell around UCSD university city and I found Scott as my agent. Since I was new to the area, I was very undetermined and hesitating when deciding the specific neighborhood and house type I want to live in. It took me a long time going around the La Jolla area to look at various condos and houses. Scott was very patient and drove me and my family around the area for many days with great patience and information. The new released condos and houses' information were always updated in time by Scott, so I was able to make the decision of purchasing the condo in La Jolla Village Park. The experience not only made Scott a good agent but also a good friend in process.
