Expertise:Global Luxury Specialist
Licensed since 1975 and a broker since 1977, Scott has had a multi-faceted career in Southern California real estate that is extraordinary by any standards. Spanning three recessions and many changing markets, Scott has gained valuable insight into the nuances of market shifts from buyer’s to seller’s markets and back again. While many new agents are learning about these changes for the first time, clients of the Walker Advantage Team can benefit from the depth of experience Scott brings to the table.
Scott had a storied career as a partner in a new home sales and marketing company representing many of Southern California’s most high profile projects from San Diego to Santa Barbara, selling over $1 billion and 7,000 individual homes and condominiums. As a member of the Institute for Residential Marketing (MIRM), Scott earned experience encompassing knowledge of construction, staging, landscaping, financing, incentives and professional advertising. He has brought many of these unique specialties to the resale brokerage side of the business to the benefit of his clients.
Shifting gears, Scott became an owner/partner in a Coldwell Banker franchise in the Los Angeles/Orange County area that grew to four offices and over 200 agents. As an owner of one of the top 25 companies in the United States, Scott networked with the best brokers and owners in the world as well as the leaders of Coldwell Banker, the premier brand in real estate today. The knowledge gained is not standard office meeting fair, but leading edge, industry changing concepts and strategic planning. Scott sold his interest in the company to put all his efforts into the Walker Advantage Team.
Having sold homes throughout Southern California, Scott, wife Barbara and their three daughters fell to the attractions of the then small community of Temecula/Murrieta. Scott played polo, rode horses on the local trails, hiked and biked through the foothills, played a little golf and owned a vineyard, truly living the lifestyle he elected to sell.
