What’s his story?
Scott was born in Guelph, Ontario. At the age of five, his parents bought an old home, just next door to the house he was born in. It was his first renovation/restoration experience!
They had purchased one of Guelph’s most architecturally significant homes; a three storey, 19 room, red brick home with a turret and 7 fireplaces, originally commissioned to an accomplished Toronto Architect in 1891 for the owner of the Biltmore Hat Company. It was an impressive and very grand house and it started his life-long love of architecture and homes. He watched in amazement at how a seemingly, unlivable, former landmark was restored to a vibrant new life, and a place he called home for many years. It was this marriage of creativity, hard work and vision that has left an indelible mark on Scott and fuelled many of his interests and pursuits.
After living in Switzerland for two years, Scott settled in Oakville, where his mother started a new career in Real Estate with Johnston & Daniel. At the age of 14, he got his very first job after school filing new listing slips and helped install for sale signs on his mother’s listings. He had an inkling early on that he would eventually follow in the same footsteps.
In the early 80’s he moved to downtown Toronto. It was an exciting period of growth in the city. He worked in, and managed, restaurants while honing his own culinary pursuits and exploring his architectural interests. It was in those years that, being no stranger to moving, he embraced many of Toronto’s great neighbourhoods; The Beach, Riverdale, the Annex, High Park, Rosedale and the city core. He gained amazing knowledge of Toronto’s older neighbourhoods.
In the mid 90’s he ventured west to look for new and creative ways of melding small business and his love of food and architecture. It was in Vancouver that he opened a gourmet food shop in the historic Gastown district, and, some time later, managed a 5 star Bed & Breakfast, one of Vancouver’s finest examples of Queen Anne architecture; aptly named “O” Canada House for the original owner who penned the first words to our national anthem.
In 2001 he returned to Toronto and embarked on, what is truly, a career that he felt was tailor made for him – Real Estate. He considers himself very fortunate to be doing something he loves, with people that he enjoys. "It’s incredibly gratifying to know that my collective training, insight and experiences are helping my clients to make decisions about one of the single most important things we value most, our homes".
Joining Bosley Real Estate over 15 years ago completed his Real Estate career goals. "I consider it a privilege to work for a company that leads the industry to new standards of professionalism and ethical business practices". Bosley is Canada’s largest, private, family-owned brokerage with over 240 of the most engaging and professional people in the industry.
As for his love of food…….he shares that with family, friends and yes, his clients.
