About Me

Real Estate Professional with the Elizabeth Brien Team


I was born and raised in Ann Arbor, played water polo at Huron High and know this area inside and out.


After high school, I attended California Lutheran University in Southern California where I was on the varsity water polo team and received a BA in marketing.


Before joining the Elizabeth Brien Team, I worked as a real estate photographer and still have a love for photography. In 2014, I decided to put the camera down and follow in my mom, Jan Nelson’s, footsteps and embark on a real estate career.


My wife Emily and I have been married since 2016 and we welcomed our daughter Lucy in 2017.

Scott is an incredible agent and extremely knowledgeable of the Ann Arbor market. His calm and respectful demeanor make him a pleasure to work with and I would recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.


Scott has done a great job helping us understand Ann Arbor and patiently showed us a LOT of houses before we were ready to narrow our search. He was always available even when it wasn't as reasonable to expect him to be and shepherded the buying process of the house we picked expertly and painlessly.

Scott helped my husband and I buy our first home in Ann Arbor (which we love), and he was amazing! We knew next to nothing about home buying, and Scott always responded cheerfully and candidly to our many questions with savvy answers. He was super available to take us to see houses, and he very quickly got a good sense of what we were looking for--I think he knew what kind of house we really wanted even before we did. He knows A2 and the surrounding towns very well, and he's also very knowledgeable about houses (i.e., what a well-maintained and easy-to-maintain-in-the-future house looks like) in general. We felt that he genuinely cared about us finding a home that we would love: we never felt pressured in any way, and I knew that he would never let us buy a home that wasn't just right for us. The A2 market was very "hot" when we bought our house. Buyers had to be competitive, and Scott helped us craft just the right offer to get us our dream house. We feel lucky that we got to work with him!


Overall Scott was great to work with. He was very responsive and made himself available when needed. He was able to utilize experienced resources when faced with a scenario outside of his expertise or experience level. Very pleasant and enjoyable to work with.

Scott helped us snatch up our beautiful Ann Arbor hills home immediately after opening. We were the first the view the home and he had an offer drafted that night. If you know the Ann Arbor realty market, especially the Ann Arbor hills market, you know how vitally important it is to snag the good ones immediately. We are extremely pleased with his services. In fact, he still provides advice and recommendations for professionals for home repairs, 2 years later! I have personally referred him to several friends who were looking for a realtor and would wholehearted recommend him to anyone.

Working with Scott was a great decision and one that we are happy we made. He helped us find a home that we love and was very involved in the process. He quickly learned what we wanted, liked, disliked and he gave us great advice with each home we visited. He talked about ways to improve each house, how we could make it fit what we needed or if it wasn't possible. He never tried to push us towards anything we didn't like or were not comfortable with. He pointed out potential issues homes might have and ways to mitigate those issues. This was our first home purchase and we relied on his experience and it paid off in the end. Scott is extremely friendly and personable, he made us feel important and well taken care of. He made the process as easy as it could be and walked us through so much so we never felt overwhelmed. He was there for us when we needed or had questions, he would schedule a visit whenever we asked. He was a great resource and we would highly recommend him. We've been in our home for almost a month now and I am still texting him getting advice and help.


We met Scott at an open house and he was so personable and engaged that we decided to make him our realtor. He knows the Ann Arbor area very well -- he grew up in here -- and is extremely patient. After spending months looking for a place he finally found the perfect house for us. He helped us successfully navigate the negotiation process, find an inspector he trusts, and made sure we were on schedule to close on the house. We never felt pressured to make a deal or purchase a house that wasn't perfect for us. He really did have our best interests in mind. We recommend Scott to all of our coworkers and friends.

Selling can be a stressful experience and Scott made it so much easier! His professionalism, kindness and solution-oriented approaches created an enjoyable process. We would (and often do!) highly recommend him!
