JONATHAN AND DREW SCOTT STARS OF PROPERTY BROTHERS
JONATHAN and Drew Scott keep busy! When they’re not starring on one of their many TV series, part of the Property Brothers franchise, they’re growing their empire with a mobile game, Builder
Brothers children’s books and the
Scott Living collection. Star chatted with the siblings about their new show, Forever Home.
Tell us about Forever Home.
Jonathan: It’s a new kind of show for us. Rather than flipping a house or searching for a family’s next home, we’re unlocking the potential of the place they’re currently in so they can stay there forever.
Drew: It’s all about the heart within the home. We want to help homeowners cherish the memories they have — and create new ones — in the beautiful and functional home they always wanted.
What do you think it is about you guys that draws people in?
Drew: Are you implying that it’s not our boyish good looks!?
Jonathan: In all seriousness, we think it’s because we always keep it real. We’re not trying to be anything or anyone that we’re not. And while we take what we do seriously, we don’t take ourselves too seriously. I think people can appreciate that.
Out of all of your shows, which one reflects your skills the best?
Jonathan: That’s like choosing a favorite child or pet! We love each show we do for different reasons.
Drew: On Property Brothers and Property Brothers: Forever Home, we love being able to give families something they never thought they could have: a home that actually suits their family’s needs.

Tips for first-time buyers?
Jonathan: Don’t get distracted by a shiny new kitchen or jetted tub. Assess what the house has and how it meets your family’s needs in an unemotional way. This will ensure you’re setting your family up with the right home for everyone.
Drew: Do your research and find an agent you feel 100 percent comfortable with. Take friends’ and family members’ recommendations into consideration, but know that what worked for them might not work as well for you.
Despite hectic schedules, Jonathan reveals they have no plans to slow down: “We’re continuing to keep our hands full.” “We deal with differences of opinion right away when they come up so things don’t fester,” Jonathan . “No matter what we do going forward,” Drew says, “it will have an entertainment component, because that’s in our blood.”
