Our Company

John Aaroe Group is a locally-owned and operated real estate brokerage with strategic locations in Beverly Hills, Sunset Strip, Sherman Oaks, Pasadena and Downtown Los Angeles. Because the greater Los Angeles area has varying neighborhood personalities, we’ve established these core offices to practice localized real estate. We believe neighborhood knowledge is a top factor in solid sales, and we know our communities well.

Our People First Philosophy

We believe buying or selling a home is first and foremost about people. Sure, we have the latest technology, the marketing tools, the research and the statistics, but a successful real estate transaction really comes down to people. We know that when our experienced agents connect the right buyers, sellers or investors, they will structure solid deals with solid outcomes—and we believe these great outcomes are the product of great collaboration. In the end it comes down to people, connecting in ways that bring satisfaction and success.

Our Charitable Foundation: Neighbors for a Common Good

We believe in being a contributing member of our communities, so we give to neighborhood, health, education and environmental projects through the Aaroe Group Foundation, our philanthropic organization that donates to local causes for the common good. For us, it’s an investment in people that makes a real and lasting difference.

Karen and Yawar will be bringing all of their combined experience to you with AKP!
