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.

Every detail, from colors and lighting to innovative community spaces, is designed to welcome you, delight you, and keep the energy flowing.

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.”

Kevin Driscoll In considering a move to John Aaroe Group, Kevin saw the chance to be a part of a more locally focused boutique company that would listen to and respond to its agents’ needs immediately, “not in three weeks … maybe.” He soon found that responsiveness went straight to the top. “I was up against three other powerhouse agents for a $5.4M listing. Since the property was by a noted architect, I asked John Aaroe to meet with my sellers to pitch our Architectural Division. He gladly obliged, and I listed the house and sold it within a week.” This company listens to its agents in small ways, too. Kevin recently e-mailed Aaroe about two malfunctioning copiers, machines used by everyone many, many times a day. John immediately had both pulled and replaced. “That never would have happened at a large conglomerate,” Kevin says. “It may seem like a small thing, but it was a huge deal for us.” Kevin believes that the power of the Aaroe name extends far beyond one person. It’s a well-known, longstanding brand that sellers immediately recognize, respond to and respect. Preserving and enhancing that reputation works both ways, he says. “Each action of every agent under our banner represents our company in the public eye. Having top quality, hardworking agents with high levels of integrity helps improve everyone’s standing in our local communities, every day.”
Judy Graff After fifteen years in real estate and consistent honors as a top producer, Judy felt that her career was stagnant. “I felt that making a change and challenging myself to adapt to a new company would improve my career,” she says. “And it has.” Judy credits both the people and the company for that boost. “It immediately improved my outlook to be with extremely successful people and see how they were working at real estate and being successful,” she says. She’s also impressed by the company’s commitment to cutting edge agent education — from technology and marketing to architectural knowledge. She appreciates having access to full-time in-house technology and marketing experts, and admires the way the firm keeps abreast of new technologies like its mobile web platform. And, she adds, “the architectural training is amazing — I couldn’t get it on my own if I wanted to.” Judy also finds it refreshing to be at a company with local management that doesn’t answer to stockholders or charge agent fees. “Real estate is truly a helping profession,” Judy says. “I enjoy assisting people in getting into — or out of — a home and advancing to the next stage of their lives. John Aaroe Group gives me the ideal base for building a successful career around the work I love.”
Mary Dignan Hill Ask Mary why she joined John Aaroe Group, and she quickly puts it in a nutshell. “Real estate is an ever-evolving industry,” she explains. “The minute you think you have it all figured out, the market changes. To be successful, you have to continuously educate yourself, draw on your past experiences, and apply creative solutions to new situations. This company gives me the resources and support I need to do that.” Mary finds the firm’s staff to be incredibly helpful, and the culture stimulating. “I feel I’m working among professionals,” she says. “I can always count on my colleagues to share what they know and what’s working for them. I look forward to office meetings, because I always walk away with a new piece of knowledge or an innovative idea I can incorporate into my business.” She also appreciates the ongoing classes offered by the company, from its Architectural Series to legal issues, technology and more. She also values the high quality materials that make her stand out in listing or buyer presentations. “I always know I can count on John Aaroe Group to make sure I have the resources to put me at the top of my field,” she says. Mary values being aligned with the firm she believes is viewed as the most prestigious brokerage in her marketplace. “While we represent all types of properties and clients, the name is associated with quality and professionalism,” she says. “Many brokerages focus on the number of agents they have. John Aaroe Group puts the emphasis on their quality.” Whether agents are looking to do more business or higher-end business, she says, having a company like this behind them is a step in the right direction. “After being at two other brokerages, I feel so happy and fortunate to be part of this team.”
