Can a company lift your business? John Aaroe has always been known for proving it can. Now he’s masterminding a fresh take on his famous approach: give skilled agents the full focus and support they need to reach their clients’ goals — and their own. What’s happening at John Aaroe Group is inspiring motivated agents to rethink which firm can help them serve their clients best.


“John Aaroe Group is new, but also proven. You won’t find that combination of innovation and stability anywhere else.”

Elevate your success Real estate is a personal business, but it can be hard to concentrate on cultivating relationships when you’re worried about where your next deal is coming from. At John Aaroe Group, you can do what you do best, knowing you’re backed by a sound business plan, expert support, and powerful marketing and technology.

Your management team is made up of supportive partners, not competing agents. You gain experienced support, personal coaching and proven strategies from the best in the industry. Even the business model is agent-driven, not feedriven. Our company makes money when you sell homes, and our job is to help you do it.

Elevate “This firm stands out in a way others can’t because they are simply too large to hear their agents’ needs.” Clinton Wade | Sunset Strip

“The company is run by people you can walk in and speak to, who live in the area, have sold L.A. real estate, been in the trenches and understand how it is to be an agent in Los Angeles.” Holland Ashrafnia | Beverly Hills

Upgrade your environment In real estate, you have the freedom of working from anywhere. But flying solo, you can miss out on powerful energy, inspiration, ideas and leads. Until now, few real estate offices did much to inspire that kind of synergy.

John Aaroe Group’s uniquely beautiful surroundings in Beverly Hills, Pasadena, Sherman Oaks, Downtown L.A., Sunset Strip and Brentwood (coming soon), are designed to maximize the power of the office. Every detail, from colors and lighting to innovative community spaces, is designed to welcome you, delight you, and keep the energy flowing.

Upgrade “Every agent is a small business that needs attention and direction. John Aaroe Group delivers concentrated individual support.”

“Joining this firm has been by far my best move ever. I could not be prouder of being a John Aaroe Group agent.”

Raise your confidence John Aaroe realized from the start that taking care of agents is the first key to success. “Our agents are our partners,” he says. “My job is to send them to the front door better prepared and more confident than anyone else in town.” His company builds that confidence in many ways — all designed to make you more assured, more at ease, and more effective.


“You don’t get lost in the mix here. You are an important part of the success of the company. You are aware of it every day. You feel like you matter.”

“JAG really allows you to run your business without getting in your way — but anytime I need something it’s a phone call away, and we get straight to solutions.”

Clinton Wade Marketing, sharing ideas, brainstorming, being around like individuals who want to be the most successful agents in L.A. — those are just a few of the reasons Clinton loves being a part of John Aaroe Group. Being aligned with a mega-firm had become corporate and dull, he says. “I wanted to be part of a firm that’s cutting edge and puts the needs of its agents and clients first. We stand out in a way other companies can’t because they’re simply too large to hear their agents’ needs.” Clinton had been with the same company since launching his real estate career ten years ago. He recalls that when John Aaroe and Michael Williamson approached him to join their firm, he didn’t question the move for a minute. “I knew it was the best place for me to continue to grow,” he says. Clinton embodies the dynamic of the John Aaroe Group agent: a positive, enthusiastic and skilled professional who loves negotiating, working with people, helping families find a place to call home, and “giving clients a level of service that blows them away.” Guiding nervous and overwhelmed buyers or sellers through the process and hearing them say I made it easy for them and they could not have done it without me — that’s the ultimate compliment,” he says. “This company helps me keep those experiences coming.”

Brian Mazurkiewicz “The people, the energy, and the atmosphere.” That’s how Brian summarizes the key attractions of working with John Aaroe Group. After 24 years as a leading agent in the Sunset Strip and West Hollywood markets, he came home to a family he already knew. In the ‘90s, he had been one of the founders of John Aaroe & Associates. It became the third-highest-grossing residential real estate firm in Los Angeles County and the most productive company per agent in the country. “John has been an inspiration throughout my career,” Brian says. At John Aaroe Group, he’s found the same supportive management, family environment, and powerful tools and resources — reshaped for today’s constantly changing market. Brian especially appreciates the skilled and responsive support staff, innovative and ever-evolving marketing, and the time and effort management puts into gathering agent feedback. “Their clear interest helps make us feel like we’re all in this together,” says Brian. “And that strengthens the group dynamic that makes us unique.”



Patty Lopez “I love talking to people, and listening to what they want to accomplish financially and in life,” she says. “Parts of the process can be challenging, but it’s worth it for the satisfaction of knowing I was able to help someone get into a home they really want.” But Patty didn’t feel her firm was giving her the support she needed to move ahead. “I felt there was more I could do for my clients, myself and my business, but I just didn’t know what it was,” she says. “When I began to work short sales during the economic crisis, I was told to not waste my time. I felt that this was what the economy was giving me to work with, so I built my inventory and knowledge of the field. It not only kept me in business, but made me a top agent in the company. “I was eager to advance from the low end to the high end, but I wasn’t encouraged to work in those areas. The environment made me feel very uncomfortable. There weren’t any real standards. When I got the opportunity to interview with John Aaroe Group from a wonderful agent in the Sherman Oaks office, I was in the process of interviewing with two other companies. He urged me to consider his firm before making a decision. “I have never moved on an opportunity so quickly! When I had the interview and learned about the company and all it did for agents, I knew I was finally home. The professionalism, support, dedication, style and environment were just what I had been looking for. I was fortunate enough to be accepted, and the rest is history. I say this often: joining this firm has been by far my best move ever. I could not be prouder of being a John Aaroe Group agent.”
