In December 1994, the company created Scotsman Guide to serve the mortgage industry in the Pacific Northwest. Gradually, it expanded distribution of the publication throughout the U.S.

In April 2001, the company purchased Commercial Lender Magazine and merged it with Scotsman Guide. This purchase greatly expanded the commercial lending portion of Scotsman Guide.

In December 2001, the company began publishing separate commercial and residential editions.
