Scott Poss , managing broker at Poss Real Estate in Clayton since 2017 , has real estate in his blood . While growing up , it was the nightly dinner table conversation . From his father Ed , he learned that true success is making other people successful and helping customers get the property they want . Scott and his father , who died in 2017 , worked together to accomplish those goals for decades .

Scott ’ s Rabun County roots go almost as far back : as a teenager , he took a jon boat across Lake Rabun to catch the school bus every morning and worked at both Rabun Boat House and Hall ’ s Boat House during the summer . He even used a sling blade to keep his dad ’ s real estate signs visible from the water and roads .
He got his pilot ’ s license in 1975 , at the age of 18 , and even flew hang gliders from the mountains in the area — or towed behind his ski boat . Seeing the land from above gave him a different appreciation for marketing property , an appreciation he brought to sales when he got his real estate license not long after .
He made his first lake house sale in 1976 , gained his broker ’ s license in 1978 , and worked for many years as an appraiser . Today he ’ s still selling and listing and still flying . He ’ s a licensed commercial pilot with instrument and sea plane ratings , as well as a licensed drone pilot . He and his wife , Pat , have been married for 40 years , have three grown and married children and nine grandchildren .
Scott is an active member of Tabernacle Baptist Church and enjoys photography , water skiing , snow skiing , dirt bike riding and taking Rabun County walks with Layla , his German Shepherd .
