About this sitter
Scott is a retired US Coast Guard of 21 years. Upon retiring, he was a New Home Construction Superintendent supervising over 30 sub-contractors. Scott would average 15 closings a month from 2003 to 2007, in charge of building 8-plexes, 4-plexes and luxury homes in SW Florida.

In 2007 I relicensed as a real estate agent (was licensed in 1987 while serving in the USCG), became a Broker in 2010 and purchased my first real estate franchise, United Country Real Estate. I have been in the top 10% of offices nationwide since 2012.
I was born and raised in Northern Wisconsin. Since leaving for the USCG in 1982, I have resided in San Diego, CA - Chicago, IL - Mobile, AL - Atlantic City, NJ - Elizabeth City, NC (ALL USCG moves), Naples, FL - Sarasota, FL - Rocklin, CA - South Lake Tahoe, CA - Reno, NV. I am quite comfortable with hurricane preparedness and safety, as I have spent more than 10 years living in hurricane prone areas.
