When business is family

Real estate profile: J. Lennox Scott

By age 9, J. Lennox Scott was already working in the real estate business. He helped to paint "for sale" and "open house" signs for his grandfather’s company, John. L. Scott Real Estate. And while growing up he absorbed nuances of the industry shared by his father and grandfather.

"I grew up learning the business from two amazing role models," Scott said. His grandfather founded the Seattle-based company in 1931.
