John L. Scott celebrates 90th anniversary

John L. Scott, the nation’s 15th largest brokerage led by J. Lennox Scott, the grandson of the firm’s founder, is celebrating its 90th anniversary in 2021. The company epitomizes the entrepreneur-led, family-owned character that has dominated the industry since World War II. Family-owned and -run companies like John L. Scott are becoming fewer and far between, especially at the largest brokerage tiers.
