Scott Eggert
Broker #475.131491
Recreational Land Specialist

Scott attended Michigan State University. Having been involved in several successful ventures, Scott is knowledgeable in both the professional and personal sides of business. Scott has grown up in the real estate market. He owns and operates a home building/development business, a trade he learned from his father. Scott owns farmland in northwest Indiana and west central Illinois.

With recreational properties, Scott is incorporating his passion for hunting into a career. Timbered or tillable, Scott’s heart races everytime he encounters a new piece of property. That enthusiasm will be obvious to his clients. Scott is truly a conservationist and sportsman. His free time, when not with his family, is usually consumed by the outdoors. Hunting whitetail deer and turkey or improving the habitat for both are what fuels Scott’s passion for the outdoors. Scott and his hunting partners manage their deer for mature trophy animals. His knowledge of habitat and herd dymanics is key in recognizing those properties that will consistently produce trophy animals. Scott hopes that this venture will preserve the outdoors for future generations. He realizes that it is becoming increasingly difficult and frustrating to secure land for hunting and other recreational activities. Having two children himself, Scott would like nothing more than individuals to own their hunting future and be able to share that experience with their families.

Scott is a member of the National Wild Turkey Federation, the Pope and Young Club, the Quality Deer Management Association and the Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Partnership.
