Blazing A Trail


Scout is a locally owned and managed real estate brokerage that was founded on the principle that you don’t have to be big to provide exceptional service. We believe the key to providing great service is pride in our work, market knowledge, and the desire to help others. Unlike larger brokerages that do thousands of deals each year, we focus on fewer clients so that we can invest in them and provide a higher level of service. 

Being locally owned also means we are fiercely committed to Spokane and the surrounding communities. We believe in Spokane, the individuals that live here, and it’s growth and development. By actively engaging our Spokane community and providing you a higher level of service, we are contributing to the success of Spokane...



Scout is on a mission in Spokane to bring the relationship back to the real estate broker world. We understand that a home's value is not always measured by numerical figures, and so our real estate brokers focus on our clients above all else. Come to us for guidance in buying or selling a home. We will lead you there.

Derek Ferraro

Brian has helped my wife and I purchase a home and sell another in varying price ranges as well. His knowledge of the real estate market and structuring a deal was incredibly helpful. Brian and the team at Scout are def some of the best in town!

Ben Klundt

Working with Ryan on my first home purchase was a great experience. He was thorough, knowledgeable, friendly, and worked to get the best deal for us. There was no pressure and he was always available for any questions. He worked hard to guide us through the stressful and some times turbulent market of buying a home. I would highly recommend him to anyone even thinking of purchasing a home.

Craig M

Brian was fantastic to work with. His professionalism and knowledge of the market was tremendously helpful in guiding my husband and I through the buying and selling process. He was always prompt in replying to questions and concerns that we had appropriate timelines and expectations. He impressed us with his negotiating ensuring that we received the best offer for our property.

Shelly Colomb

Brian was hugely responsive during the process and genuinely seemed to care that the transaction was fair. He was quick to answer questions and helped identify key points to help in our negotiation. As a licensed attorney, he also has a deep understanding of process as well as potential issues that could present transaction risk. As a resident of the South Hill, Brian is also deeply familiar with the local market and resources to aid in the home buying or selling experience.

Geoff Rowand

Scout Real Estate is run by an honest, hard working, and most of all, brilliant broker in Brian Bean. He not only cares about the process, but strategizes the optimal experience in your home buying/selling or investing process. I fully support Brian Bean and Scout Real Estate's efforts in facilitating one of the most important decision you will ever make.

Corey Jeppesen

Very good, cares for your family and your needs. Doesn't waste your time. Highly recommend!!! Was able to show our house by setting appointments, that way we did not have a lock box on our door. They made sure we were home at every showing. Not usually common, but they did that for us.

Barbara O

Mr. Fowler was very professional & knowledgeable of the current market. Despite an overwhelming amount of low offers we had received, Mr. Fowler maintained a positive outlook & continued to work his hardest to get our asking price. Even though I no longer live in the area, I would not hesitate to contact Mr. Fowler for his help or advice!

Tim M

Ryan helped us find and buy our first home and we were very impressed with his overall knowledge of the process, his guidance, and his responsiveness (at all times of the day/night) to our questions and concerns. We never felt pressured or hurried by Ryan and couldn't be happier in our new home. We also referred our friends to Ryan and he was able to get them into a house as well!

Hannah S

Danielle was very helpful showing us our various options! We ended up in a location we would never have thought of. We are thankful for her creativity to help us get to the home that was perfect for us!

Alex and Austin L

Ryan was very involved and attentive to our needs during a long distance home hunt and the subsequent offers and negotiations. He gave us good advice on our offers, counters and the market in general.
