Sally Forster Jones
Sally Forster Jones is one of the top real estate brokers in Southern California and has closed more than 5500 transactions totaling $8 billion in career sales.
As founder and CEO of the Sally Forster Jones Group, she leads a successful real estate team that continues to set the bar for Los Angeles real estate. Under Sally’s leadership, the team has been a constant fixture on the REAL Trends “The Thousand” list, where it has ranked among the nation’s top real estate teams year after year. In 2019, the Sally Forster Jones Group was also inducted into the inaugural class of the Inman Golden I Club as the top luxury team in the nation. Sally herself maintains a consistent presence on several “best of” lists for real estate production, including The Hollywood Reporter’s list of Top 30 Real Estate Agents and the Los Angeles Business Journal’s annual ranking of residential real estate brokers, where she was named among the top five agents for total L.A. County sales volume in 2019.
Sally’s landmark sales — including a $70 million estate to her client Markus Persson, the creator of Minecraft, and the Spelling Manor, which set the record for the highest-priced residential property listed for sale at the time — have garnered international media attention from The Wall Street Journal, The Los Angeles Times, Bloomberg, CNN and Forbes. Valued for her luxury real estate expertise and insights, she has spoken on local and international panels and is frequently called upon by the media as an expert. She continues to provide broadcast interviews and guided tours of significant properties to CNBC, NBC LA and CNN Money, among other television outlets.
Much of Sally’s success can be traced back to her integrity, innate people skills and humble roots. Growing up in New York, Sally’s family instilled the value of hard work, and the importance of saving and investing. She saw how real estate could be a powerful wealth-building tool and was inspired to help others achieve their dreams. Sally’s infectious passion for real estate, combined with her natural ability to read and understand people, are the qualities that continue to define her real estate legacy. She puts her clients at instant ease – whether they are selling a $1 million house or a $55 million estate – and continues to inspire some of L.A.’s most talented real estate agents to join her team. “Real estate is a relationship business,” she is fond of saying, and her business reflects a belief in the human touch even as she integrates modern real estate technology.
With the support of her dedicated team of agents and support staff, Sally can effectively tailor the buying and selling process to each individual client. In addition to the entire Compass organization, she employs real estate listing and transaction experts and marketing professionals to facilitate in the preparation, marketing, escrow, and sale of each property. Creative and distinguished marketing is one of Sally’s hallmarks; she works with each client to create a marketing plan customized for a property. Taken all together, this makes the Sally Forster Jones Group one of the most exceptional and personalized real estate experiences in all of Los Angeles.

What our clients are saying
Myles Lewis is an outstanding realtor. He was always on top of any issue that arose with selling my property. Always on time and truly cared about getting things done properly. I would not hesitate using him again and highly recommend him!
Myles is not only a stand up human being, but also an invaluable resource to finding a home in Los Angeles. I found his ability to collaborate with me on my home-buying plans to be extremely useful and calm my stress levels during the process. I plan to work with Myles from here on out when selling or buying property in LA. If you're looking for an honest, non-pushy, smart real-estate agent, Myles is your guy!

Sally represented me when I sold my home. Sally and her team were very supportive in every aspect of the process. All of her support staff were friendly and professional.

I would highly recommend Sally for any real estate transaction.
The Sally Forster Jones Group represented our listing in Encino which was our family home. Sally and one of her agents spent time with us going over what we needed to do to sell the property. Her team was excellent: helping us with the many aspects of selling our home. We followed her advice in staging, painting, cleaning and taking care of only the necessary repairs. Sally spent time with us going over pricing and when multiple offers came in she went over how to choose the best offers. We ulti...
Sally was nothing short of incredible in helping me sell my home! My home was a new construction and new build, although it was incredible it was a really difficult time to launch amidst covid.

All my needs were accommodated above and beyond my expectations, her & her team organized hiring the best professionals to stage my home, and took care of all the nitty gritty details so I could sell it for...
Finding the perfect house during Covid was such a big need for us. Working with Meredith’s team made it such an easy and stress free experience. We worked with Alex who was incredibly helpful and on top of everything. We had a pretty quick timeline and he immediately had us in viewings of places that hit all our needs. In the end we had three great options, which I never expected! Needless to say we are incredibly happy with where we ended up and would highly suggest working with Meredith and...
