John Aaroe Group founder and CEO John Aaroe has announced that Sally Forster Jones, one of the most noted and successful real estate brokers in the country, has joined the firm as president of newly-formed Aaroe International Luxury Properties division. She and her team will be based in the company’s Beverly Hills office.
“I am thrilled about our new partnership with John Aaroe Group,” said Ms. Forster Jones. “This is an incredibly progressive company that will allow us to further expand our reach with high-end, innovative marketing on a global level. As President of Aaroe International Luxury Properties, I am looking forward to the new opportunities this will bring to our group and ultimately to our clients.”
Ms. Forster Jones is widely known for brokering some of the most sensational property deals in Southern California including co-brokering the sales transaction for the legendary Spelling estate. She has represented a range of high-profile clients including A-list celebrities and corporate moguls. She comes to John Aaroe Group from Coldwell Banker, where she was ranked the number one team in the western United States and the number two team among the company’s 82,000 agents worldwide.
Her expertise and spectacular listings have made her a prominent figure on the media scene, with recent appearances in CNN Money, which quoted her on the booming Westside market for Chinese buyers; Forbes, where she appeared in “ Homes of the World’s Most Powerful Celebrities”; and CBS News, where she led a tour of the fabulous Rocky Oaks Estate in Malibu. Both Variety and TheHollywood Reporter have cited her among their top 25 real estate brokers of 2013 and she has been previously ranked as the number six team based on transaction volume by Wall Street Journal Real Trends out of all real estate companies.
“In my long career in real estate, I can’t think of a move whose impact equals or approaches this one,” said Aaroe. “As Sally brings her global business to our company and applies her tremendous talent and experience to shaping and leading our international properties team, John Aaroe Group is destined to become the preeminent global real estate leader in our market.”
