I have been representing both Buyers and Seller’s in transactions with some of the most iconic properties in the Jackson Hole Valley for almost 20 years. Below is some information on my background.
I moved to Jackson Hole in 1975 after graduating from Whitworth College, now Whitworth University, a small private school in Spokane, Washington. I came to Jackson for the same reason many people do, I had skied here the winter before and fell in love with the valley. My dream, at that time, was to live in Jackson Hole and get paid to ski and to run the rapids of the Snake River both of which I did becoming a professional ski patrolman and a whitewater river guide.
I opened the first dedicated whitewater retail store in the valley called the Paddle Shop. I was then hired by a small local sporting goods manufacturing company called Life-Link International®. Over the course of the next 20 years as Marketing Director of Life-Link and eventually Vice-President of Sales and Marketing and part owner, I helped develop outdoor brands such as Croakies®, outdoor accessories sold worldwide, Simms® Fishing Products, one of the premier fly fishing equipment manufacturers, Tarponwear, the first technical hot weather fishing clothing whose designs have been copied by every major hot weather clothing manufacturer around the world, and Life-Link, a premier brand of backcountry ski equipment.
During that time my wife, JoAnne, and I raised two sons and a daughter. We have watched them become life-long outdoor enthusiasts, growing up in this valley, while they made their way through the Teton County Public School system.
I have seen a lot of changes in the valley over the last 45 years. One thing hasn’t changed and that is my love and appreciation for the Valley, its mountains and the people who live here.

John did a great job for us and selling our home. He has the highest integrity which is so incredible to find in this business. He originally did a professional, comprehensive market analysis for our property so we would be able to set a realistic price. Then he did a beautiful job of marketing our home and spared no cost to make sure we had beautiful pictures and much well-placed advertising. He was personally present whenever there was a showing. He knew our home well and showed the perspective buyers and their agents the features that were wonderful about our property. He was available quickly whenever I would call, text or write with questions. ...— Barbara E.
John worked with us for over a year to find a suitable property for us in Jackson, Wyoming. He has great patience and never gave up on us when it took longer then expected to find the ideal property. John openly shares his knowledge and expertise of the entire region, which really helps when you are a long ways away, like us from the east coast. He was very quick to respond and gave us every bit of information we requested. John was also very accommodating to our schedule when we could make it out to look at properties. We got very lucky when we found John through a random yellow page search and one email. You don't have to be so lucky with a review...— James M.

I was extremely grateful for having John Scott assist me with buying a property. As a first time buyer in the area I was guided through the whole process by John. I was so happy with the level of service and commitment he showed me through the whole process. I cant rate his quality of service high enough. I would have no hesitation recommending John Scott to any future buyers or sellers.— Buyer
I am so appreciative of John Scott's help and professionalism. Over the course of about 3 months he helped me figure out exactly what I was looking for and gave me great advice. During the closing process he always made himself available, even when on vacation. I found the process less stressful as a result.— Andree D.
Since I lived out out of town John assisted in getting the house ready for sale by helping me find cleaning vendors as well as overseeing the process. He also helped make sure all the requirements of title company were met. His advice on the housing market was very helpful.— Susan H.
