Originally from Rome, New York, Scott attended Mohawk Valley College where he studied Business Law and Management. He later worked at an electronics & communication firm in upstate New York and was the General Manager of one of the largest equestrian Quarter Horse show & training centers on the east coast.
Scott moved to Coeur d' Alene, ID in 1986 to escape the hectic New York lifestyle. He bought, renovated and resold rental homes and apartments in the area, which led him to become a licensed Realtor® in 1989. The experience he gained in construction and re-sales has been invaluable to him in his real estate career.
As an avid skier, Scott traveled all over the United States & Canada to ski. Coming to Park City on a ski trip in 1990, he immediately fell in love with the small town mountain resort lifestyle. Knowing that the 2002 Winter Olympics would be great exposure for the Park City real estate market, as well as one of the most memorable times in one's life to experience the Winter Olympics in one's own back yard, Scott made the move. He believed that the emerging Park City market offered a great opportunity for someone with his talent for high-end real estate and new construction.
Based on his background and work ethic, Scott's success was immediate and has continued to grow as his clients reward him with repeat business and referrals. Scott has earned the loyalty and friendship of his clients by keeping them well informed and being available to meet their schedules at all times.
Although active in all areas of Park City real estate, Scott specializes in luxury homes, condos and lot sales in the Park City & Deer Valley areas, as well as the many surrounding golf course developments in the Park City vicinity. His extensive knowledge of construction has made him the choice of many of Park City's finest builders to represent their homes. His advice to builders concerning what prospective buyers want, and how to effectively market new construction, are highly regarded. Those qualifications also make him a wise choice for prospective buyers of new construction homes, or for those looking for the perfect lot and solid recommendations for quality contractors and subcontractors.
Scott maintains residences and real estate licenses in both Coeur d' Alene and Park City, enabling him to enjoy the "best" of what each area has to offer in recreational activities such as hiking, hunting, and fishing in the most beautiful and scenic areas of the West.
