Scott brings with him over 30 years of experience in commercial and residential lending, real estate and economic and community development. In this role, Scott will oversee the day-to-day activities of his dedicated team of agents and staff, whose expertise in all classes of commercial properties and property management spans the Gulf Coast region as well as the Orlando market.

A native of upstate New York, Scott commands an extensive resume ranging from running a mortgage division for Source One Mortgage/Citigroup and most recently serving as Vice President of Economic Development for Schenectady Metroplex Development Authority. Within that role, he was involved in site selection, SBA financing and governmental approvals for over $1.5B (8 million square feet) and helping small and large companies relocate or expand in the market area. His passion for supporting his community's infrastructure via the growth of local enterprises also earned him a reputation as rainmaker when he held the Executive

Director position at the County Incubator, continuously bringing in new opportunities and ultimately helping his hometown thrive. Professionally he values integrity, honesty and exceptional customer service, citing the Michael Saunders & Company values and culture as driving factors for his choice in relocating for his position.

Scott relocated to Venice with his wife Nora in 2018 and considers the beaches and sunny weather a welcome departure from the multi-season climate of the North. He holds a real estate degree from the University of Oklahoma Economic Development Institute and enjoys cycling and rooting for the NY Yankees (but don't hold that against him). He and Nora have three children; Zachary and twin daughters Kendall and Mackenzie, all of whom have embarked on their own professional paths.
