Drew Scott (Andrew Alfred Scott) is one of the popular duo on Property Brothers who has made a name for themselves in the home renovation sphere. Scott serves as the realtor on the program while his brother, Jonathan Scott is the contractor. Together, the Scott twins have achieved massive success in the real estate business and they are not resting on their laurels yet. However, they weren’t always renovating properties and probably never envisaged a career in real estate in their budding days.
From performing magic as a kid to comedy and acting, Drew Scott tried different career options before real estate swept him off his feet. Scott was seven when he launched his first business, selling decorative hangers he made to local businesses. The effort was productive and attracted customers from beyond the shores of his home country. Drew also excelled in sports, especially basketball and volleyball. He has a black belt in karate, emerging as a Canadian National Karate champion in several events. While Scott majored in kinesiology with a minor in mathematics in college, he has carved his career path as a reality television personality and real estate guru.
