Douglas Elliman Realty announced that the remarkable Julie Jones–Broward County’s foremost specialist in prime waterfront homes and estates–has joined the firm’s Fort Lauderdale office. A household name among celebrities, yacht owners and business leaders with real estate interests in South Florida, Jones brings a $2 billion track record, decades of national rankings and invaluable expertise as the company expands and diversifies its presence in the regional market.
“Julie Jones is one of the leading agents in our industry, whose reputation rises above even the most prestigious national sales rankings,” Scott Durkin, Chief Executive Officer of Douglas Elliman Realty. “She belongs at Douglas Elliman–not only because of her achievements, which are undeniably impressive, but because of her passion, spirit and tenacity.”
“Julie Jones is one of Florida’s most accomplished, talented and universally respected real estate professionals,” said Jay Phillip Parker, CEO of Douglas Elliman Florida. “It is an honor to announce that she is joining our Fort Lauderdale team where her expertise in Broward’s ultra-luxury market is sure to be an asset as we continue growing.”
Ranked number one for luxury single-family sales in Fort Lauderdale, Jones sold $368,824,000 in 2021, averaging $7,000,000 per listing and so far in 2022 has closed $129,390,000 with an additional $28,990,000 currently under contract.
Originally from the United Kingdom, Jones secured her brokerage license in the U.S. in 2000 and launched Broward County’s leading boutique firm with a distinct specialty for prime waterfront estates in Fort Lauderdale, known as “the Venice of the Americas.” She has spent the past two decades setting price records alongside new standards of excellence, earning a reputation as the broker of choice for discerning clients ranging from national and international celebrities to professional athletes to CEOs and investors, many of whom seek deep-water access for private yachts. Jones has sold seven of the area’s most desirable point lot properties, including “La Maison Blanche” at 1818 South East 10th Street which recently closed for a record $27,500,000.
“I built my own brokerage by prioritizing every client relationship and by staying ahead of the curve, and that is precisely what brings me to Douglas Elliman,” said Jones. “If you want to continue exceling, you need to sharpen your tools, and Douglas Elliman has the winning resources—amazing data, lifestyle-driven marketing and technologies that empower agents to do their best work. This is exactly where I want and need to be.”
In addition to being recognized as a leader in the regional market, Jones has also ranked among the country’s top 250 agents for the past 12 consecutive years. Julie is a longstanding affiliate of LuxuryRealEstate.com. She joins Douglas Elliman based out of the firm’s office at 450 Las Olas Boulevard in Fort Lauderdale.
