Early Life and Education
Scot Ulmer’s first taste of entrepreneurship happened when he was just fourteen years old, when a neighbor sold Scot his run down Volkswagen Beetle. After installing a new battery, pumping up the tires, changing the oil and giving it a thorough clean, Scot sold the car for a profit.
From those proceeds Scot bought his first house, a fixer-upper he bought at a tax sale (for which his father had to sign for). From then on, he was hooked. He started buying and selling homes right out of high school and never looked back.

Scot Ulmer grew up just outside of Tampa, Florida with very little money. There were times his parents ate popcorn just so he and his younger brother could have baby food. There may not have been a lot of money around at that time, but Scot had an idyllic childhood. He learned from a young age to appreciate the little things in life that people take for granted because he did not have much to begin with.
He attended a catholic high school where he flourished as quarterback and captain of the football team, which led him to Bowling Green State University in Ohio for his undergraduate career where he was accepted for football. After realizing he wanted to focus his studies on business (and was not as good at football as he thought), Scot transferred to Ohio University where he graduated with a degree in Business Finance, and Communications.
Shortly after receiving his degree from Ohio University, Scot won the 20 Under 40 Award at age 26 for his contributions in business as well as community. He co-founded a non-profit organization called “Aspiring Minds of Toledo” that brought young business professionals together for a variety of business, philanthropic and community causes.
As an advocate for nonprofit involvement, Scot Ulmer enjoys working with various charities. He loves to give back to his community and feels it’s his obligation. He works closely with his church on various projects throughout the year that help raise money for those in need. He also helps his church collect bread from grocery stores to donate to the hungry.
In addition, Scot’s firm makes donations on every house they sell to an organization called Little Pink Houses of Hope, which sends families battling breast cancer on all-expenses paid vacations during their treatment.
Scot’s number one priority are his wife and three kids, whom he loves unconditionally and thanks every day for their support throughout the years. Someday it is his hope he can provide some small inspiration by sharing his stories of hardship and the lessons he’s learned.
