Scott Weaver, an Iraqi war veteran, and his wife Jessica St. John, started Urban Leasing & Realty in 2009 after Mr. Weaver transitioned from the military to civilian life...The success the husband and wife team found as real estate agents in the Houston area provided them with the opportunity to give back to the community.

Getting Involved

Scott and Jessica are actively involved with Team Red, White & Blue (Team RWB), a local charity with a mission to enrich the lives of wounded veterans and their families. “Team RWB’s success lies in its concentration on 3 pillars; connectivity through one-on-one relationships, reintegration through physical fitness and galvanization via esprit de corps,” said Chapter Director of Team RWB-Houston, Chris Widell. The charity regularly organizes athletic events to create awareness and generate funding to help veterans returning home from combat.

"The most recent event Team RWB hosted was a meeting between the USA Rugby team and Team RWB advocates and veterans,” said Mr. Weaver, “It was great to see veterans and their families talk with the athletes.” Since Scott, a veteran himself, and Jessica share a passion for the outdoors and endurance events, the organization’s mission comes as a natural fit for them. “I'm really looking forward to the upcoming Woodlands 10K event in November. We have already spent a lot of time working on it and improving the registration process from last year,” added Mrs. St. John.

Finding Ways to Give Back

In addition to dedicating their time to Team RWB events, Scott and Jessica sponsor the annual Team RWB Veterans Day Race, as well as raise donations for various other veteran organizations on a regular basis. Furthermore, the couple has pledged to donate 10% of any commission earned from a veteran’s transaction at Urban Leasing & Realty to the veteran’s cause of choice. "I wanted another way for veterans to benefit and personally feel like they were contributing, “ said Mr. Weaver.
