Early Life Of Drew Scott
Scott started performing in theater, improv, and sketch comedies at an early age. The twins received training as young apprentice clowns and later went on to charge up to $100 per hour for their performances at parties and other gatherings. But as Jonathan’s fascination with magic grew, Drew turned his attention more to hoops. He also pursued acting as a teen and young adult, landing parts on Breaker High, Madison, and Smallville.
The brothers went to the University of Calgary, where Scott, a former athlete, majored in kinesiology. The twins wanted to be performers, but they didn’t want to be “starving artists.” They thought investing in real estate would help them escape the financial limbo that comes with being unemployed actors, so they watched an infomercial by Carleton Sheets. Following their investigation, they took over the lease of a seven-bedroom rental home across the street from their university during their first semester of college. They made repairs and cleaned it, then rented out the other five rooms, making $800 a month in profit.
Drew Scott Career
Drew moved to Vancouver in January 2006, having grown more frustrated that real estate was taking precedence over his own passion, acting, despite his success as a realtor. He moved in with Pedro, his best buddy, and allowed himself a year to really go after his dream. Jonathan continued to manage the company while he was in Calgary. Scott started acting and voice lessons in Vancouver made connections with powerful people in the business, advanced on film teams, and maintained a color-coded spreadsheet to keep track of everything. But at the end of the year, he was not as far forward as he had intended and was in debt totaling over $100,000.
Scott says in an interview with Entrepreneur magazine that one restless night, he heard the song “Pull Me Through” by Jim Cuddy and knew he had to “go back to his roots.” He emailed Jonathan to request the marketing template for Scott Real Estate. He obtained a real estate license in Vancouver shortly after and established a Scott Real Estate office there. Jonathan and his spouse relocated to Las Vegas in 2008, where they started buying and remodeling houses for rental purposes. With several locations across the country, including Vancouver, Calgary, and Las Vegas, Scott Real Estate employs scores of people.
While presenting real estate-themed shows, Drew was primarily offered hosting positions, frequently alongside Jonathan. Eventually, he received an opportunity from Cineflix to host a program called Realtor Idol, which was designed to be similar to American Idol. The company’s creators wanted Scott for a show they tentatively called My Dream Home, but the idea never happened. They also wanted to find a female co-host for the show.. They created a show around the two of them after finding out he had a brother who worked in real estate; that firm would go on to film the Property Brothers pilot. HGTV later picked up the show.

Drew Scott Family
Born in Vancouver, British Columbia, Drew was the youngest of two brothers; James Daniel, who was older by two years, and Jonathan, who was older by four minutes when they were born. Jim and Joanne Scott, his parents, were taken aback by his delivery since they had assumed she was having a single child. As a teenager, their father Jim left Scotland to pursue his aspirations of becoming the kind of cowboy he had seen on television. Up to the late 1970s, he was employed in the motion picture business as an assistant director, stuntman, and actor.
Around that time, he made the decision to put his family’s needs first and they relocated to a horse farm in the neighboring town of Maple Ridge. While Joanne pursued her job as a paralegal in downtown Vancouver, Steve worked as a youth counselor. The twins’ father urged them to seek jobs when they became seven years old, so they launched their first company, JAM, producing nylon-covered hangers. They said they sold them door to door until thousands were ordered by a woman in Japan who marketed American souvenirs.
