Early Life: Identical twin brothers Jonathan Ian Scott and Andrew (Drew) Alfred Scott were born on April 28, 1979 in Vancouver British Columbia. John was born four minutes before Drew, whose birth was a complete surprise because his parents, Jim and Joanne Scott, thought that Joanne was giving birth to only one child! Their father had emigrated from Scotland as a teenager with dreams of being an American cowboy, like the kind he grew up watching on television. He worked in the film industry until the late '70s, which he quit to focus on raising his family. Jim and Joanne moved the family to a horse farm in Maple Ridge, Canada. The brothers started work young, starting their first business at just seven years old, JAM, producing nylon covered hangers. They sold them door to door until a woman ordered thousands. The boys' continued job search led them to an ad that was recruiting child clowns to perform in parades. At one point they were making $100 per hour performing as clowns at parades.
Their father would commonly renovate family properties and he hired John and Drew to build and repair fences, decks, and barns at just age 8. They continued to assist their father in various projects all throughout their childhood. At 14, the family began working on their parents' dream home in Alberta, Canada. The brothers attended Thomas Haney Secondary School and, just as the family dream home was completed, the two left for Calgary to attend college.
Early Career: Drew and Jonathan started buying and renovating property when they were still teenagers. Although the two originally wanted to be entertainers, they did not want to be "starving artists". They thought if they invested early in real estate that it would act as a sort of buffer for what they really wanted to do. They bought their first house when they were 18 years old, in their very first semester of college. They used a vendor take-back mortgage and made a $250 down payment on a seven bedroom house across the street from their university. After renovations, the brothers rented it out and made $800 a month off the rent. They sold it a year later for a $50,000 profit while attending university. They continued to buy and flip homes throughout their late teenager years.
Before going into real estate as a true profession, the brothers tried acting, with John trying work as an illusionist. At 19, John dropped out of college and began to build large-sale illusions with the goal of developing a touring theater show. A fellow magician who claimed to be a friend of a friend approached him and John agreed to rent him several of his illusions. Unfortunately, the man stole the entire production, destroying the show and leaving Jonathan a staggering $80,000 in debt. He was unable to collect what he owed and, depressed and embarrassed, did not tell his parents what had happened to him. John had to file for bankruptcy at age 20. Meanwhile, Drew had also left college and was working as a flight attendant at WestJet. John went back to school at the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology to study construction and design. This is when he became licensed as a contractor. Meanwhile, Drew got his real estate license in 2004.
At the same time, both Jonathan and Drew were taking small acting roles. Drew both appeared on Canadian television show Breaker High. Drew also had a role on Smallville and Jonathan was on The X-Files.
