How Drew and Jonathan Scott’s net worth was built
Andrew Alfred Scott, better known as Drew Scott, and his twin brother Jonathan Scott are best known for their affable ability to turn lackluster homes into showplaces on the reality show “Property Brothers.” The Canadian reality television personalities launched Scott Real Estate in 2004 to handle construction and development of commercial and residential properties. Together, the twins started buying and renovating properties when they were 17 years old, selling their first flip for a $50,000 profit while attending college.
The twins were used to the camera, having appeared on Canadian TV show “Breaker High” and landing small parts on the “X-Files” and “Smallville.” With their older brother, J.D., the brothers co-founded Scott Brothers Entertainment. The company was launched to fund the brothers’ film and media production projects.
Drew Scott, the real estate agent of the two, handles finding, buying and selling houses for clients on their hit HGTV show “Property Brothers,” which launched in 2011. The success of the show has led to spin-offs, many produced by Scott Brothers Entertainment.
According to Celebrity Net Worth, combined the Scott twins are worth $20 million.
