John L. Scott Real Estate


Company Profile

John L. Scott, the founder of John L. Scott Real Estate, was born near Glasgow, Scotland in 1898. In 1923 he set out upon on a two year journey that saw him immigrate to the United States, eventually settling in Seattle in 1925. Soon after his arrival, John L. Scott began working as a sales associate in a local real estate office and then in 1931, established his own real estate company, building a successful business on his integrity and ambition to provide the highest quality customer service.  

Three generations later, John L. Scott’s strong heritage continues through his grandson and current Chairman and CEO, J. Lennox Scott. What started with one office over seventy years ago has grown to become one of the largest independent residential real estate companies in the United States, with over 3,000 sales associates in more than 115 offices throughout Washington, Oregon and Idaho. 

“Over seventy years ago my grandfather succeeded at building John L. Scott because of his unwavering dedication to customer service. Today the same holds true as we endeavor to enhance the home ownership experience through the perfect balance of tradition and innovation,” said John L. Scott Chairman and CEO, J. Lennox Scott.

Today, John L. Scott Real Estate upholds the values and principles established by Lennox’s grandfather more than seven decades ago, maintaining the highest standard of professional service in residential home sales. Using technology to provide enhanced service, we offer instant marketing, instant information, and instant transaction processes with a human touch.
