About Me

Hello! My name is Garrett Scanlon. I am an investment real estate broker and author of these books:

I speak to companies, brokerages, schools, and groups on the topics of:

  • Real Estate
  • Leadership
  • Decision-making for young adults during their high school years
  • Life planning

I find that drawing on real-life stories of winners in the marketplace helps to inspire me and others to greater success.

My Background

Upon graduating from Miami University, I began my career in real estate, in Columbus, Ohio.

I have represented client in the sale and purchase of approximately $500 million dollars of investment real estate, and have served as Director of Leasing for CASTO, one of the longest-standing and most successful real estate development companies in the Midwest. I continue to represent buyers and sellers of investment properties in Central Ohio.

Unique Access to Extraordinary Winners in the Marketplace

My career has provided me with unique personal access to some of the most talented people in real estate, medicine, law, insurance, hospitality, law enforcement, and civic enterprise. My first book, Walking and Talking, consists of 57 stories of success and humor from some of these top leaders in the world of business. These stories and others are included in lunch-and-learns and all-day training sessions.

Seeing Past Friday Night

My volunteer teaching in 8th grade and high school classrooms led me to create powerful messaging and tangible tools to help young adults confront the storm of bing-drinking, drug-us, and vaping during their teen years. My blog for young teens and their parents, grandparents, aunts, and uncles is www.JustSayNo.org.

Single Page Life Plan (SPLP)

I wrote Single Page Life Plan, with the idea that once a business plan or a life plan spills onto a second page, it is thrown into a manilla folder and forgotten about until the following year. SPLP forces your priorities to earn their way to page one! Designed to help you add:

  • Time
  • Energy
  • Organization
  • Productivity, and
  • Spontaneity to your day.

Tangible Takeaways!

I create tangible takeaways that you can use to make you more successful at work, school, or home.


I enjoy tennis, biking, piano, reading, writing, and spending time with my family in Columbus.
