What began as a school project about income properties developed into a unique and strategic business model that Scott would later execute himself. At 21, using student loans, Scott purchased and renovated his first rental property and owned 5 rental properties by the time he was 23. He became a licensed contractor in 2004 to manage his own crews and address the challenge of finding responsible trades to renovate his investments.
