They Were Born and Raised in Canada

While the Property Brothers are wildly popular in the United States, the pair was born in Vancouver, Canada. They grew up living and working on their family ranch and attended the University of Calgary together for college. It wasn’t until 2010 that the brothers decided to move to Las Vegas, Nevada together. They both currently live in Los Angeles with their significant others.

…and Sing

The brothers can really do it all. In 2016, they released the country ballad “Hold On” and wowed their fans with their impressive singing skills. Quickly after they dropped an upbeat party song called “Let the Night Shine In.” In recent years, the brothers have released song covers and even branched out individually to produce songs like “You Chose Me” (Drew’s love song to his wife) and “Being Honest” (a song Jonathan created for his PBS documentary, Jonathan Scott’s Power Trip).

Their First Renovation Wasn’t on Screen

At just 18 years old, Jonathan and Drew bought and flipped their first home. They even earned a mean $50,000 profit once it sold. Their love of home improvement only blossomed from there. Flash forward to today where they have renovated over 150 homes!

Drew is Gluten-Free

While Drew isn’t allergic, he follows a gluten-free diet because he’s fairly gluten sensitive. He cut out gluten products because it makes him feel better. He explained to Real Style Network, “I find my body functions better and it breaks down food better if I don’t do gluten.”

Drew Was a Surprise Baby

We can’t imagine Jonathan without Drew and Drew without Jonathan, but their parents were definitely surprised when Drew was born just a few short moments after Jonathan was. Jim and Joanna Scott didn’t know they were having twins until delivery day!
