Scott was destined to be a part of the "Aspen Story". Born in northern California, raised and educated in Texas, Scott was introduced to the area in the 70's by his grandparents who had a home in Snowmass Village. As a result and thanks to his outdoorsy parents, he was an avid skier, hiker and camper from a young age! He began his professional career in the mid 90's as a television news producer, reporter and anchor for ABC, NBC and FOX affiliates in Colorado, Alabama, North Carolina and Washington State. Yearning for more permanent, healthful and inspirational surroundings, Scott realized a life-long dream of living and working in the mountains by moving to the Roaring Fork Valley in 2002. As news director for KSNO-FM he covered the devastating Coal Seam fire in Glenwood Springs that summer. Later he represented the local business community at the Aspen Chamber Resort Association specializing in sales and marketing. Capitalizing on his strong interpersonal and organizational skills, Scott earned his real estate license in 2005, quickly becoming a respected broker and top producer. Since then and through the Great Recession, Scott has continued to serve Buyers and Sellers from Aspen to Rifle by providing valuable information and advice - timely follow-up and follow-through - tough, creative negotiation and simply getting the job done for his many loyal clients. Scott is an expert in residential, commercial, fractional and investment properties in Aspen / Snowmass as well as the greater Roaring Fork Valley. He also specializes in the REO / bank owned sector. He's considered a local authority on TDRs (transferable development rights). Scott has always been interested in the area's rich history and loves helping his many clients discover all the rewards of living, working and playing here in the heart of the Rockies! Scott is a former board member of the Aspen Young Professionals Association, the Aspen Board of Realtors and The Roaring Fork Conservancy, and is a current Aspen Elk and Eagle Scout. Scott works from the Aspen office but calls Carbondale home where he lives with his wife McLean, son Bridger and two rescue dogs.
