J. Scott Laughlin

Realtor at BHHS Fox & Roach Realtors

Fiscal responsibility was instilled in me from a very young age, as I was raised by a single mother on a teacher’s salary. As a teacher, my mother’s incisive critiques helped hone my strong writing skills. I attended George School. I have found the values and fundamentals of a Quaker education to be instrumental as an adult. After graduating from Boston University with a degree in Finance, I entered the corporate world and spent over 20 years working in sales and marketing roles, the majority of that time was with American Express. Wanting to have a personal impact on my clients’ lives, I shifted careers, and have been a Realtor® for the past 15 years. With over $145 million in sales, my business and reputation have been built on a solid foundation of trust, integrity and creativity. My personal passions are architecture, history and photography. I live in Rose Valley in a historic 1910 Arts & Crafts bungalow designed by the founder of the community, William Lightfoot Price. History and community weave the fabric of what we call home. You have deep roots in your community. Your house has roots, too. When it comes to real estate, everything is personal. You need the expert in historic property marketing. Passion – a love of history & place Creativity – a unique approach to marketing your home’s roots Tenacity – doing everything to help maximize your home’s value Integrity – focused ONLY on your best interests Call me to begin the process of unlocking the DNA of your home. My passions of architecture, history and photography come into play in every one of my listings. I am a member of the Rose Valley Museum, Radnor Historical Society, Old York Road Historical Society, Preservation Alliance for Greater Philadelphia, The Athenaeum of Philadelphia, Institute of Classical Architecture & Art and the National Trust for Historic Preservation. I have sold many historic houses by architects such as William Lightfoot Price, Horace Trumbauer, Robert McGoodwin, Howell Lewis Shay, Wilson Eyre, Duhring, Okie & Ziegler and Heacock & Hokanson. I lecture on Will Price’s extensive, yet short career. I complete exhaustive historical research into all my listings, often recreating lost lineages and stories. I take all my own listing photographs and complete all of my historic listings with videography, drone services and dedicated property websites. Marketing strategies include sources focused on old house lovers, broadcasted to a wide, national audience. Always focused on my clients’ best interests, I will not practice dual agency. My list/sold ratio is higher than average and my appraised price/sale price rate is 100% of all listings.
