When Scott first began developing in 1991, his CPA called one day and told Scott he needed to quickly come up with a name for their new development entity. On a deadline, and thinking the name could be adjusted or changed later, Scott quickly came up with: "SKN Properties" (short for Scott, Kim, Negri). More than 30 years, plus 50 acquisitions and developments later, the name hasn't changed.
Scott and his wife, Kim, both grew up in the Central Valley and graduated from Fresno State. They married in 1991 and welcomed twins, Arianna and Alec, in 1995. Scott and Kim now reside in Monterey, California, and their twins recently graduated college, so they are officially empty nesters. Never ones to sit still, they are always looking for the next SKN Properties project.
SKN Properties handles its property management in house. Judy Troehler has been with the company for 30 years, and Jeannine Marcenaro joined in 2016. Together, they work to facilitate property management needs. Kim handles special projects and the environmental "greening" of the developments. Scott manages all aspects of the business. Tenants know they can reach him at any time. Scott always says, "We treat our tenants as partners because without them, where would we be?"
