3/24/2017 Agent Spotlight: Meet MONICA KESSLER!


We, at John L. Scott of Bothell, are so proud of our Agents and Staff! We are taking a moment to shine the spotlight on our incredible talent. Allow us to introduce you to our lovely Monica Kessler. She would be happy to assist you with all of your Real Estate needs and remove the stress of finding a new home.


Real estate has been a great adventure for me and has taught me that you can only grow to the capacity that you allow yourself to. A big part of that growth is being in the right environment, and joining John L Scott has been the best decision I’ve made in my career to support and nurture my growth. 


One of the proudest moments I had was right after I joined JLS and landed my very first listing. Something about seeing my very own sign with my name on it was a significant moment for me. It brought me so much joy and pride. Pride for myself, pride to be part of such a great company, and the desire to live up to a high standard. It was a turning point for me for me mentally, as though I was being catapulted without knowing know where or how, but knew it was going to be great.


While I love all things real estate, my passion is music. I have my masters in Piano Performance and still love playing and teaching. Music is a wonderful mind shift that cleanses the palette of everyday life. It invigorates the soul and allows expression and fulfillment in a way nothing else can for me.


One of the best lessons I learned was as a college student in a highly competitive music environment.  I learned (after a few discouraging years) that if I was going to grow I had to put my proverbial blinders on, stay in my lane and focus on what I had a knack for and loved. Forget about what everyone else was doing and just be the best “me” I can. It releases me from the poison of comparison and allows me to be truly happy for others and learn from their successes.    


One of my favorite quotes is from a real estate mogul (from my guilty pleasure show, “Million Dollar Listing”): “It’s too big a world to be in competition with everyone. The only person who I have to be better than is myself.”

What makes John L Scott different?

John L Scott stand apart from all the rest because of Lennox Scott unparalleled contributions to the industry both locally and nationally. As a leader with National Association of Realtors and major contributor to the Realtor Political action committee, he is setting the example for the rest of us. The industry is better because of the high level of ethics that JLS agents practice and because we put our clients first above all else.

Consider ships as well. Although they are large and are driven by strong winds, they are steered by a very small rudder wherever the pilot is inclined.

Lennox puts his agents first with an eye on technology and passion for charity.
