LA aaroe
We’re just back from Guangzhou, China, where we had a rare opportunity to meet and talk with a select group of elite homebuyers and investors about buying in LA. The event gave me a wealth of great opportunities to talk about my favorite subject: Los Angeles real estate. Over 5,000 attendees joined us to learn more about our market and how to choose the right local real estate company. We made lasting impressions that will greatly benefit our sellers in the future. Here’s a look at this landmark event for us and for our clients.

Taking Our LA Luxury Story to China

An influential crowd of Chinese investors, bankers and business leaders got to know John Aaroe Group this month as our CEO John Aaroe and Chief Marketing Officer Heidi Hockenberry attended a three-day Luxury Properties Showcase in Guangzhou, China. John Aaroe was a featured speaker at the invitation-only event, giving the audience insights on what makes California the preferred investment location for Chinese buyers.
“Los Angeles real estate represents one of the best buys among major cities worldwide, and we are seeing an increasingly international buyer audience,” Aaroe noted in his presentation, which focused on the array of real estate opportunities across the Greater Los Angeles region. “We are here to enhance our growing relationships with Chinese investors and further collaborate with real estate firms around the world who’ve joined us for this conference.” more »

Our Aaroe Global division has just launched 18 websites in 18 different languages, with more to come. Unlike many real estate sites, key content is translated by humans, not machines. That not only makes for a better experience for foreign buyers, but unlike auto-translations, it’s visible to search engines. Since our properties will be indexed and suggested to users searching in a specific language and location, they’re more likely to be seen in international markets. more »

The U.S. debut of a major retrospective examining nearly six decades of work by the most famous architect working today, Frank Gehry, recently opened at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and it’s a dazzler. The exhibition traces the arc of Gehry’s career from the early 1960s, when he opened his LA studio, to the present. more »

Los Angeles has long been a worldwide leader for creativity in every field, from movies and music to architecture and fashion. LA Fashion Week, a key showcase for what’s hot and what’s next, has always been mounted at venues around the city. This fall, the entire event will be held at a single LA icon: the glorious Union Station. Over 40 emerging, established and internationally renowned designers will take the stage October 7-11 before an audience of some 20,000 buyers, dignitaries, celebrities and industry elite. And be home at last. more »

Multi-award-winning Los Feliz-based architect Michael Lehrer defines architecture as “the shaping of space with objects in light to create practical and emotive places.” His firm’s daring 616 Croft in prime West Hollywood Melrose Heights is an exhilarating expression of that idea. more »
