Whether buying or selling a home, it’s so important to find a Real Estate Agent you’re comfortable with, but also one who reallyknows Philadelphia. With that said, we’re quite fortunate to have Scott Sepkowicz on our team leading the way. We sat down for a few minutes today to ask Scott five questions about real estate, dining out, travel and Philadelphia, where he gave us some answers.
What were you doing before you got into real estate?
SS: I graduated from UPenn in 2013 and shortly afterwards began performing around the city 5-10 times per week as a solo guitarist/vocalist, as well as teaching guitar lessons.
What made you get into Real Estate?
SS: I’ve always taken an immense pride in Philly, and one day had a serendipitous encounter with the industry while speaking with a friend. It dawned on me as a career that would enable me to apply my passion for this city and combine it with the benefit of being able to help other people.
What’s your favorite restaurant?
SS: This is tough as there’s so much great food in Philly. In Fairmount, I love Tela’s Market for brunch. Dante & Luigi’s in Bella Vista for an authentic Italian experience. Marrakesh in Society Hill has one of the coolest dining experiences in the city (with belly dancers!) and seriously delicious food. La Rosa in South Philly has the best pizza in the city. And of course there’s a great McDonald’s at 18th and Walnut – they have the BEST Sprites.
Where’s the coolest place you’ve ever traveled?
SS: Iceland was probably my favorite. Volcanoes, glaciers, waterfalls, wild horses, vast grasslands, black sand beaches, geothermal hot springs (one from which I watched a total solar eclipse), and of course the Northern Lights.
What’s the best part about Philly that most people overlook?
SS: As for specific spots that I love in the city, I think Spruce Harbor Park as well as the Fairmount Waterworks behind the Art Museum are awesome. In a more general sense, I think sometimes it’s taken for granted how much history is behind everywhere you go. It’s pretty amazing that in almost every section of the city, you can pinpoint something cool that once happened there. There are so many streets and homes that were quite literally walked and lived in by our colonial predecessors – I could walk around the picturesque, historic streets of Queen Village, Bella Vista, and Society Hill all day and never get bored.
