About Us

John L. Scott Woodinville has been locally owned and operated since 2007.  In 2019, Chelsey Samonte took the reins from the owner (aka her father), Mike Petryszak, as Designated Broker of the office. Our mission is to ensure individual broker success by helping our brokers to continue to grow their business and themselves. We believe in the importance of creating a vibrant environment where agents are inspired, the team atmosphere is cultivated and dedication to the community is encouraged.
