It’s hard for me to believe it’s already been a year since the launch of Tim Scott Real Estate. It feels like a paradox because the year went by so fast, yet the transition was so smooth that it seems like this company has been operating for much longer than that.
I am a native to this area and wouldn’t choose to live and work anywhere else. The communities of the Northeast Kingdom are so supportive and have a sense of togetherness that is not always easy to find. After over a decade of selling real estate in the Kingdom, starting my own company was the next logical step. As a third-generation Realtor®
, real estate and the love of Vermont appears to be a family trait. Starting TSRE came full circle with so many pieces of the puzzle fitting perfectly together; such as drawing inspiration for my logo from the one that my great uncle Walter Scott used when he sold real estate in St. Johnsbury. Or that I purchased the building that my mother, Mary Scott, sold real estate out of at one time in her career – that combined with her decision to join my company.
is one of the hardest-working agents I know. She impresses me daily with her work ethic and her enthusiasm to continually evolve with the ever-changing real estate industry. She has not only a passion for real estate, but also a genuine love for people. She remains friends with her clients, is involved in the community, and enjoys her new-ish role as a grandmother. Mary joining the company was a vital part of the successful first year. Thank you, Mary.
On the other side of the spectrum, I’d also like to thank Libby Ratico.
Coinciding with the TSRE anniversary, Libby is also celebrating her first anniversary as a Realtor®. Any real estate agent will tell you, this is not an easy business to succeed in and the first years can be the toughest. Libby entered this field like a rock star and has had a tremendous year! Her willingness to go above and beyond for her clients is one her many traits that I value.
Last, but certainly not least, is Linda Pakus. I have been fortunate to have been working with Linda since 2013. Linda has held a Vermont Real Estate License since 2008 and has been working in the industry since. Linda does so much on a day-to-day basis. She brings many talents and creativity with her that allows our company to offer our clients more personal attention and a higher level of service. Linda is in charge of everyday operations, handles all of the marketing, and supports our busy agents. I can tell you with the utmost certainty that I and my company, would not have enjoyed the level of success it has had without her. Linda is an indispensable asset to the TSRE team.
There are many, many, people to thank for making TSRE’s first year such a positive one. All the local professionals that I work with, the TSRE clients, my supportive wife and daughter. And of course, my dog, Donnie, the unofficial social media mascot of Tim Scott Real Estate. Thanks for a great year – here’s too many more!
