Scott Woods

For many years Scott Woods has had a passion for real estate and he recently took on the title of realtor, along with his long list of other jobs.

Woods is a husband, father, teacher, coach, house painter and since May, he's been a realtor with Counselor Realty Inc. of Alexandria.

Counselor Realty has offices in Alexandria and according to Woods, is the No. 1 home seller in the Alexandria area. With Woods coming on board and his extensive time living and working in the Wadena community, he was a natural fit to expand sales into the Wadena region.

He said while he can show any home within the MLS listing, living in Wadena certainly makes it convenient to sell around the Wadena and Perham communities.

"I'd like to do a lot around the Wadena area," he said.

Woods is a fourth-grade teacher at Wadena-Deer Creek Elementary School and has been with the school district for 14 years as well as six years as a teacher in Alexandria. He's also a partner with his wife Kim, the owner/operator of Rex McDonald Photo Studio.

Woods said between painting houses, teaching, coaching hockey and golf and spending time with his family, the idea of being a real estate agent had been rolling around in his mind for some time. And he's glad he took the step to get into the field.

"It's just something I've always had an interest in," Woods said.

He said the flexibility of it made it attractive to fit around his time teaching.

While there are several realty option is Wadena, Woods said he feels they all work together well to help buyers and sellers reach their goals.

"It's all positive," he said.

As for the current market, Woods said it's a strong market and homes are moving quickly right now. The issue seems to be having enough homes to keep up with buyers.
