With backgrounds as top-producing sales agents and award-winning managers, Bill and Scott set out to found A&L as a company both focused on our clients and dedicated to our agents.
Real estate is in Bill’s blood. He grew up in Ann Arbor, Michigan in a family steeped in the development and student housing business. He began his sales career as a top-producing agent in new construction for The Related Companies before becoming an award-winning resale broker with Coldwell Banker. Bill thrives on the deal. In sales, he has a dogged determination to secure the best possible outcome for his buyers and sellers. As a principal, he has a highly developed sense, honed over his years in management with Baird & Warner and Better Homes and Gardens, of what his agents need to succeed: spot-on marketing, skills-focused training, and always-available support. Bill holds an MBA from Columbia University and is a board member of The Austin Piano Festival as well as an active alum with the Princeton Club of Austin. He is an accomplished jazz and classical pianist, a composer of electronic music and an avid runner who can often be seen early mornings on the trails around Austin.
Scott helped Bill found Astor & Longwood and now serves as an advisor to the company. With a history degree from Stanford and an M-Arch from Rice, he started his professional life as an award-winning architectural designer in Houston. Since then, his work experience has expanded to include commercial property management, residential sales, and residential brokerage management. Scott additionally holds an MBA from MIT and a PhD in architectural history from the University of Texas at Austin, where he currently serves as an adjunct professor at the School of Architecture. He is the co-author of two books on architecture, a director of the Society of Architectural Historians, and an associate member of the AIA.
