2022 Emerging Leader: Paul Balzotti


Since taking ownership of the Bellingham John L. Scott office about three years ago, Paul Balzotti has doubled the office’s agent count, increased office production 30-40% each year, and doubled their local market share. For years, his company has emphasized the importance of community engagement, being hyperlocal experts and creating quality video content. Balzotti based his office’s operations around these focal points. He took action by creating a video studio in the office and brought in a videographer monthly to support agents free of charge. Balzotti also heads up The Bellingham Real Estate Podcast, an office podcast interviewing agents. Additionally, under his leadership, the Bellingham office sponsors and hosts multiple events annually to support the community and local nonprofit organizations. Taking his community engagement further, Balzotti is the Communications Director for the Whatcom County Association of REALTORS and serves on the organization’s board of directors.
