Scott Rome and Mike Giannone
After an illustrious 30-year career as a business leader and sales executive for some of the biggest names in media, including Paramount Pictures in Los Angeles, Chicago, New York, the NBC Television Network, and tech start-ups in Silicon Valley and New York, Scott Rome’s entrepreneurial spirit led him to leave the corporate world and enter real estate. He didn’t tiptoe into the shallow end of the industry. He leaped in with both feet and in 2017 and bought a small Vermont-based real estate company. His goal was to transform it into a new brand, Brick & Barn Real Estate Group, with a vision to provide residential and commercial clients a fresh new approach to an age-old industry.
Wanting to remain at the forefront of sales, now for his own company, he partnered on the selling front with Mike Giannone, a 25-year-old phenom who catapulted right out of college and established himself quickly with his combination of skill, drive, and instinct. This unlikely but powerful duo has built a thriving commercial and residential team in New England while in parallel, Scott continues to run and expand Brick & Barn with over 30 agents across Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine, and Massachusetts. With a rare model that serves residential, commercial clients and investors, the firm has closed over 800 transactions totaling more than $300 million in just its first three years. Brick & Barn’s hand-selected team of highly skilled sales and marketing professionals all share Scott’s commitment to providing the highest level of integrity and service for every buyer and seller.
“Clients love how we’re doing things—our hyper-responsiveness, our concierge approach, and our team’s pure passion for the profession of real estate is our key differentiator,” Scott says. “We’re not just real estate salespeople; we’re more about the entire real estate experience and ensuring that at every touchpoint, clients are getting a true partner in the process.”
The team of Rome & Giannone has been highly effective. Scott brings wisdom and experience as a sales, marketing, and business leader. Mike brings the perspective of a young millennial with a double degree in finance and marketing from Peter T. Paul School of Business and Economics at the University of New Hampshire and previous experience with The Dartmouth Company, an upscale commercial real estate firm in Boston. It is this unique and powerful combination that allows them to remain at the forefront of current market trends, connect with clients across generations and anticipate the ever-changing trends in marketing across social media and other platforms—all with the aim to provide the best service and value to their clients.
Not long after Scott and Mike teamed up, they caught the attention of people in the commercial real estate industry who quickly sought them out. Now they are serving a growing number of prominent corporate and individual investors, across, retail, multifamily, and industrial sectors for clients who want both regional and national representation.
Driven by unbridled energy and a passion for helping people, Scott thrives on bringing to his clients the same branding, sales, and marketing experience that allowed him to take a small Vermont agency from obscurity and launch it into the mainstream. “What drives me? It’s the pure enjoyment of helping people start their next chapters in life. It just doesn’t get any better than this,” he says.
Scott is the broker/owner of the firm and holds real estate agent licenses in New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Maine, and Vermont. Mike is a licensed real estate agent in New Hampshire, Massachusetts, and Maine.
