Set apart and positioned well by a background in architecture, business and design, Scott Rice has the ability to envision the potential of a property and how it can be a perfect fit for his clients. In every situation, he searches for ways to best utilize the potential of a property, maximize return on investment, and build in future value.
From an early age, Scott has been a part of what he calls a fascinating process of how materials become houses and houses become homes. Scott started by designing homes in high school and since then has served clients in varying capacities in his decades long career in real estate. Early on, he focused on use, development and design. This led him to designing custom homes, flipping houses, preparing homes for sale to increase sales price, converting multi-family units to condominiums. Scott even worked on the design and development of high-end homes to be built in Japan.
Wanting to elevate his knowledge base, Scott sought out opportunities to learn more. As the right hand of a nationally recognized real estate legend and icon, Scott played a vital role in some of the most prominent sales in King County over the past decade. Working with high net worth individuals, managing hundreds of millions of dollars in sales, he refined his representation skills of high-end luxury and waterfront sales, which is now the principal focus of his own business today. Though each property, plan and client are different, one thing remains consistent: the service and product must be high quality. This commitment led Scott to align with Realogics Sotheby’s International Realty, where he offers his clients access to a true luxury brand and connections that span not just around the corner, but around the world. He remains passionate about the “big hits,” and knows that he can represent and secure the right property with the intuition to know it when he sees it.
When not in the office, Scott never misses a chance to go wine tasting and is an avid car enthusiast. He can often be found doing projects at the West Seattle home he shares with his husband Frank and Digger, their blue heeler. Both enjoy a close bond with their two children and eight amazing grandchildren. In the community , he is proud to support YouthCare, an organization dedicated to ending adolescent homelessness. Scott is always willing to share how important homes are to the broader community and what they mean to him personally.
