Scott Benjamin is a serial entrepreneur with a recurring passion for real estate. In 1991, he received his real estate salespersons license in Florida, but only earned $230 in commissions. Following a stint in the restaurant business working for Domino’s Pizza and Rudy’s Hamburgers, Scott created Signature Properties out of Baltimore, Maryland in 2001. Over a ten year period, Scott learned the real estate business from the ground up. Scott bought and sold over 100 houses, purchased numerous land development deals, invested in vacation properties, tax certificates and currently owns college rental properties and various commercial real estate holdings. Seeing the eminent crash of 2008 approaching, Scott pivoted careers and earned a PhD in Strategy at the age of 42 from the University of Maryland and is currently on the faculty at Florida Tech in Melbourne, Florida. In 2014, Scott began investing in real estate once again with an eye on capitalizing on the rising real estate market. In the past year, he has actively worked with college students who have flipped 7 houses, purchased a land development deal, and are pursuing a motel conversion project. He enjoys sharing his passion and knowledge for real estate with others through teaching and public speaking.
