Bonvolo Real Estate Investments is led by Scott and Karen Price. Scott provides a wealth of real estate investment and brokerage experience. Karen provides project management, property management, and accounting to ensure all operations run smoothly. Together they own a profitable and growing portfolio of multi-family, single family, office, medical, retail, and land investments.
Scott bought and managed his first rental property in 1994, and honed his skill sets through key roles as a team manager, marketing manager, and a US representative in Europe. He then later ramped up his real estate and investing work plus education starting in 2003. At that time he became a full time residential and commercial real estate broker, and in 2005 purchased his first apartment complex (29 units). From 2003-2007 he used the full time broker status to immerse himself in real-world real estate, investing, and applied education. For 3 of his 4 years as a full time real estate broker, he was awarded Seattle Magazine’s Best In Client Satisfaction Award. He also obtained many professional certifications, including Project Management Professional (PMP), Accredited Buyer’s Representative (ABR), Relocation Specialist (RS), and Accredited Luxury Home Specialist (ALHS). In 2007, he timed the market and got out of full time real estate sales to return to his background in team management and program management while simultaneously leveraging the changing market’s buy opportunities and consistently increasing the holdings of his cash flowing portfolio. He went on to manage global real estate programs within the international real estate group at one of the world’s largest and most valuable companies.
Scott then transitioned to his current full-time devotion to Bonvolo. He actively maintains his broker license to invest in real estate and works with other brokers as their client. Scott also provides professional mentorship/coaching for aspiring real estate investors. He has been a featured guest on numerous top rated real estate investing podcast shows and guest speaker at real estate conventions and associations. He has also been interviewed on real estate topics by Homes & Garden TV, KIRO TV, Seattle Magazine, Highline Times, and book authors. Scott also actively participates in many local and national real estate investment organizations.
Karen has an extensive background in project management, marketing, product development, team coordination, building construction consulting, and business consulting. She holds a master’s degree in organizational leadership. These varied and relevant skill sets make her a valuable part of the team, starting part time for many years and then full time at Bonvolo since 2015.
The Prices have significant experience in commercial and residential property acquisition and management. They have successfully partnered with other investors and are increasing their partnering opportunities based on their successful track record and desire to provide appealing returns for co-investors. They also bring an extensive team of selected team members and partners to perform the end-to-end services required for effective, high quality real estate investment operations.
Scott and Karen live on Whidbey Island, northwest of Seattle. They enjoy being with family and friends, biking, hiking, camping, sea kayaking, and cross-country skiing. Scott was recently very active on the Board of Directors of the Whidbey Camano Land Trust and is now spearheading the creation of a personally funded nature and sculpture park.
