J. Lennox Scott is inducted into the 2021 Newsmakers Hall of Fame

John L. Scott Chairman & CEO J. Lennox Scott was inducted into the 2021 Newsmakers Hall of Fame! The Newsmakers award was created by RISMedia in 2018, and is designed to recognize individuals making headlines as a result of their newsworthy contributions to the real estate industry. Lennox appeared on the 2018, 2019 and 2020 lists, and this year he was elevated to the Hall of Fame along with nine other industry leaders. 


J. Lennox Scott is the third-generation chairman and CEO of Seattle-based John L. Scott Real Estate, founded in 1931 by his grandfather. A longtime industry advocate and thought leader, Scott is also a member of the National Association of REALTORS’ Strategic Thinkers Advisory Group and the Large Residential Firms Advisory Group.

Scott and the firm’s executive team remain committed to collaborating and focusing on the opportunities and positive outcomes of real estate trends, establishing strategies and action plans that lead to innovation and ongoing success.

In 2020, Scott and his team introduced the concept, “Everything Video Live Communication.” Realizing that, during these challenging times, presenting an engaging presence online is crucial, they encouraged the firm’s agents to embrace all the technology available to them in order to reach clients. “It’s our goal that all of our agents are the first point of contact for those in their relationship database that are looking to buy or sell a home,” Scott says.
