Andrew Alfred Scott was born on April 28, 1978, in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, which is where Drew Scott currently resides. His father, Jim Scott, was an actor and assistant director in the film industry.
He worked in the profession for many years. Co-hosting and co-producing a number of different media initiatives are responsibilities shared by Drew and his identical twin brother, Jonathan Silver Scott.
J.D. is Jonathan and Drew’s older brother, and he goes by the moniker J.D. Jonathan is a licensed contractor, in addition to his and his brother’s respective licenses as real estate brokers. Drew had dreams of becoming a famous actress, while Jonathan had visions of becoming a famous magician.
They started the business when they were still in high school with the assistance of their older brother and their father (who built the family home by hand).
They were able to launch their business thanks in large part to a legal loophole in Canada that permitted individuals with poor credit and a lack of liquid assets to take over the mortgage of another person without having to personally guarantee the loan. It is said that after their first flip they made $50,000, and after that, they were addicted to flipping houses.
In 2004, the brothers created Scott Real Estate Inc. together with the goal of providing consumers with a one-stop shop for all of their real estate-related needs, including the purchase, sale, and renovation of properties. By 2008, the company had grown to employ more than a dozen people.
Drew, who had never abandoned his ambitions to pursue a career in acting, started networking with production firms in order to present ideas for reality shows on real estate.
An early idea was to create a competition show similar to American Idol except for real estate. He eventually found success with a production company named Cineflix, which wanted to combine Drew with a female co-host on a show called My Dream Home. Cineflix intended to connect Drew with a co-host who had a design background. Cineflix made the decision to change the show’s concept when they learned that Drew had a twin sibling. This led to the creation of Property Brothers.
Brothers in Real Estate
After watching a teaser video for Property Brothers, HGTV decided to purchase a pilot episode for the show, which ended up receiving overwhelmingly positive feedback from viewers. The first episode of Property Brothers aired on January 4, 2011.
The ratings for the network went up by 77% in the space of three weeks after the show made its debut on HGTV in the United States. The brothers are followed on the show as they assist homeowners in the process of purchasing a fixer-upper property and then performing the improvements on that property.
After only a few short years, the show was consistently drawing 10 million viewers each week, placing it among the top five programs on cable television for viewers in the age group of 24-55. By 2017, the show has garnered a still-respectable 2 million viewers on a weekly basis despite a minor decline in its ratings.
As of the time of this writing, the show has resulted in the creation of SIX spinoffs.
The Entertainment Provided by the Scott Brothers
The two partners established Scott Brothers Entertainment in 2010, a year before the debut of their show. The firm is responsible for the production of a variety of reality shows during the course of its existence, including those intended for television, film, and the internet.
Jonathan Scott and Drew Scott established Scott Brothers Global in March of 2017. The intellectual property rights to Property Brothers were purchased from Cineflix by the firm in 2019. Because of the contract, the brothers now have the ability to control and produce all subsequent iterations of the show. Cineflix remained in possession of the rights to worldwide distribution and continued to hold a profit participation stake moving forward.
Under the aegis of Scott Brothers Global, they run a modern-day empire that is continually expanding. Together with QVC, they established a range of outdoor furniture under the name Scott Living in the year 2015. According to reports, the company’s sales in 2016 were in the amount of $100 million. In 2017, they expanded their offerings to include indoor furniture, fabrics, and other home design items.
Their wares can be purchased in retail establishments such as Bed Bath & Beyond, Costco, Hobby Lobby, Lowe’s, and many others. An interview with the brothers that was published in the 2018 issue of Entrepreneur magazine revealed that the total revenue generated by the brothers’ businesses is $500 million annually.
Although this figure could not be verified, it is clear that the empire enjoys a great deal of success.
In 2018, they introduced a design platform called Casaza that was geared toward the general public. It is said that they put up $2.5 million in order to get the e-commerce website up and running.
Sailing with the Scotts is the name of an annual fan cruise that the brothers put on for their followers. On this trip, visitors visit design workshops in addition to singing karaoke and drinking with the Scott brothers.
Since 2010, Drew has been romantically involved with Linda Phan. In 2016, they announced their engagement, and the following year, they wed.
