In May 2003, Scott founded Crosbie Real Estate Group, Inc. (CREG) with the intention of creating a truly unique, performance-based company in the real estate brokerage community. Now a reality, Scott’s vision was to create a team atmosphere with brokers working together and sharing market knowledge and industry expertise to benefit Crosbie Group clients. From inception, CREG established an impressive client list that recognized the value of this team approach.
Scott began his career in retail real estate in 1994 at Goldberg Property Associates (GPA) specializing in landlord representation, leasing both existing shopping centers and new developments. In 1998 Scott began a 12-year relationship representing Wal-Mart, GPA’s defining account. During his 12 years managing the account (6 with GPA and 6 with CREG), Scott strategically guided Wal-Mart by expanding and relocating 34 stores in 3 states.
This foundation solidified Scott as an expert in retail site selection and analysis, but also gave him the expertise in commercial real estate development, from start to completion. During these transactions, Scott worked thoroughly with municipalities on approvals, entitlements, but most importantly incentive programs on behalf of his clients. Through Scott’s business relationships and activity in the industry, he created opportunities to work with other national tenants, such as Wendy’s. Scott is currently their longest-standing broker in the country.
Scott has worked with many Landlords including both national and local companies. For over 20 years, Scott and his team has managed assets for American National Insurance’s national real estate portfolio, as well as local clients in the Colorado market focused on owning, managing, and repositioning their assets. Some of Scott’s local clients are Urban Frontier, McKinnon and Associates, Ogilvie Properties, and Stratus Companies to name a few.
Currently, Scott’s goal is to take the comprehensive knowledge he’s attained through his career and help property owners make the best decisions with their assets. As the real estate in Denver and surrounding markets experience significant changes in value, he recognizes the need for owners to rely on his broad depth of knowledge and creative solutions. He considers his client relationships as partnerships, so he provides honest feedback and opinions, which can be both positive and negative.
Scott believes the proper way to conduct his brokerage business is to educate his clients, giving them the confidence and power to make the right decision.
Scott and his team realize that many of these decisions lead to outcomes that have significant long-term impacts on his clients’ personal wealth or family’s wellbeing and never takes them lightly.
