With the massive success he has experienced, J. Scott Scheel is ready to give back what he has learned about the commercial real estate industry. The businessman has assembled a team of professionals to lend a much-needed helping hand to aspiring investors and developers. In addition, his agency, Commercial Academy, accelerates the growth and success of their clients’ careers.
The educator and speaker in creative commercial real estate, Scheel’s vast knowledge about real estate strategies makes him one of the nation’s leading investors. “I discovered on my own that I could add the highest value to others, without a college degree, and without having a lot of money when I started,” he says. The high-caliber investor declared that his passion and hard work, along with his mentors’ support, drove him to learn everything he knows today. Furthermore, he expressed his delight in cultivating thousands of bright students into becoming wiser players in the market through his efforts. Scheel mentioned that seeing them employ the strategies, intelligence, commitment, and experience they learned gives him joy.
Asked about why he entered this field of work, the developer for 25 years cited the value he could give to his students. He also claimed that through his work, communities are also transformed for the better. “I enhanced the quality of life for people in multi-family dwellings. I improved and constructed buildings that became businesses for new employment, creating jobs and generating tax revenues for local governments,” the business mogul commented. The founder of Commercial Academy then continued to say that his teachings result in a fruitful endeavor for his students, who generate their personal wealth and increase the number of communities transformed across the country through their investments.
As an expert in investment and development, it is natural that a wide variety of business interests substantiates his portfolio. Needless to say, he does not lag behind in that department. His impressive background includes commercial real estate investment, development and management, investment training and consulting, publishing (print, digital, podcasting, and broadcasting), feature-length motion picture production (which boasts a myriad of award-winning films), commercial finance, energy resources, and transportation, medical research and development, internet marketing, and educational services.
Scheel currently manages six million square feet of commercial real estate in the United States. However, far from growing complacent, the real estate expert wants to add thousands of members to his academy. Furthermore, he wants to empower more individuals to achieve their personal goals and own commercial real estate.
Even though he entered the industry without a college degree, the 17-year lecturer is now on top of his game. Apart from the success of his career, he was also blessed with a loving family. “They constantly teach and remind me that we all have critically important responsibilities to be good human beings. They keep me grounded and grateful,” the two-time Congressional Businessman of the Year said. Scheel claims that his family is his motivation to do things to the best of his abilities. Additionally, he encourages everyone to take the path he chose—regardless of race, gender, faith, or physical condition.
