Scott Yocum was born, raised, and educated in Centre County. A 1978 graduate of Penn State’s College of Agricultural Business, he owned and operated Penns Valley Livestock Auction from 1981-1989, and became a licensed real estate agent in 1987. Since then, he has continued to develop his skills and expertise in every area of real estate right here in Centre County. He founded the local branch of RE/MAX Realty in 1992, and served as its president and CEO until 2015.

Scott holds an alphabet soup’s worth of professional designations and memberships, including CCIM (Certified Commercial Investment Member), a distinction that fewer than three percent of realtors hold; ABR (Accredited Buyer’s Representative); CRB (Certified Residential Broker); and GRI (Graduate, Realtors Institute).

What all this means to you is that Scott knows every neighborhood in Centre County, and his knowledge of real estate is second to none.
