Lots of History at John L. Scott Real Estate

April 2017

John L ScottThere’s an interesting history behind John L. Scott Real Estate. It began over 85 years ago when a young Scottish immigrant named John L. Scott set out on a long journey to San Diego, California, with his bride and infant son.

The two-year trip included a stop in the burgeoning city of Seattle, Washington, where John later recalled, “It was like reaching City Beautiful in Pilgrim’s Progress.” Seattle, not San Diego, would become the Scott family’s new home.

Once the family was settled, John began working as a sales associate for a local real estate company. In 1931, he established John L. Scott Real Estate, which has become one of the largest and most successful regional real estate companies in the nation.
It now operates over 100 offices with over 3,000 agents throughout Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and now California.

The John L. Scott Ashland branch is located at 320 East Main and was established in 2012 under the direction of Principal Brokers Jim Remley and Jeff Rodgers. Both are veteran real estate brokers who have worked in the Southern Oregon real estate market for many years.
“We have been fortunate to attract some of the best and brightest minds in real estate and now serve an expanding base of both buyers and sellers,” Jeff said. “We are all dedicated and eager to help our clients achieve all of their real estate goals.”

Jim agreed. “Living in the Pacific Northwest, we are committed to helping our clients achieve a rich, rewarding lifestyle,” he said. “Living only minutes away from fishing, hiking and skiing, homeowners in Ashland enjoy a sense of freedom from the ordinary.”

For the agents at John L. Scott Ashland, the client’s satisfaction always comes first. “Buying a home is probably the biggest investment anyone will ever make, with long-term financial ramifications,” Jeff said.  “It calls for many informed decisions and good advice from a real estate professional. When buying a home, you can learn from the knowledge and skill of one of our talented Realtors.”

There are a number of things Realtors do to help every transaction. They can help you determine how much home you can actually afford. They can work as a buyer’s agent and help negotiate the best price and terms. They have access to a listing of all available homes in the multi-list system. They can often suggest simple, imaginative changes that could make a home more suitable for you and improve its utility and value. And most important, they’re there when you need them for the most important investment of your life.
