Our Company History
John L. Scott was founded in 1931 in the heart of downtown Seattle. From the beginning, we have been committed to raising the bar on ethics and standards in real estate. While we are the oldest local company in the Northwest, we’ve maintained our position as an industry leader by embracing innovations in technology, anticipating industry trends, and keeping a pioneering start-up mentality.
The John L. Scott Foundation was founded in 1997 in honor of John L. Scott, a philanthropist and community activist who believed in the value of giving back. The John L. Scott Foundation is supported by the generous donations and volunteer efforts of our sales associates and employees. These voluntary contributions enable the John L. Scott Foundation to help sponsor events that help raise millions of dollars for children’s hospitals throughout the Pacific Northwest. Our mission is to help kids stay healthy and at home.
2019 Housing Forecast
Despite some headwinds, there are still many positive signs in the current residential housing market. Job growth, the number one indicator of a strong housing market, remains extremely positive. Millennials, who have been longstanding homeowner holdouts in many cases, have begun to enter the housing market. According to a recent study, the desire to purchase is present - 52% of millennials hope to purchase a home within the next two years. Though interest rates are higher than they’ve been in recent years, it’s important to put our current rates in perspective – they are still historically low.
