Inman, the leader in independent real estate and technology news and events, is happy to announce Jade Mills as a speaker for the highly anticipated Luxury Connect in Beverly Hills, California, Oct. 21-22.
Her story reads like a movie script: The daughter of a dairy farmer goes off to college, meets a musician, leaves school, moves to Los Angeles so her musician husband can become famous, and soon finds herself alone with a young daughter.
What’s a single mom to do? Get her real estate license and conquer the industry, of course.
And conquer she did. Fast-forward to 40 years later, Jade Mills has achieved over $3 billion in career sales. She’s the leading Beverly Hills real estate agent for tony neighborhoods such as Beverly Park, Holmby Hills, Bel Air, Brentwood, West Hollywood and Trousdale, which is about 10 miles south and several million dollars north of the first home she sold in Van Nuys.
Throughout her career, Mills has built a flawless reputation on loyalty, integrity and professionalism, which translates to a level of privacy and confidentiality that is unparalleled. She’s been known to hide celebrity clients in the back seat of her car as they dodge the paparazzi, to conduct preliminary sweeps of a property to make sure it’s empty before a high-profile client enters, and to work around the clock to see that her buyers’ and sellers’ needs aren’t just met but that their expectations are exceeded.
With a client database that looks more like the guest list for Vanity Fair’s Oscar party (hello, Jennifer Aniston, Gwen Stefani, Ellen DeGeneres and Britney Spears) and a clutch of properties almost as famous as their owners (Elvis and Priscilla Presley’s Trousdale home, the Bob Hope estate, Dennis Hopper’s Frank Gehry compound), it’s no surprise that Mills and her celebrity clients’ listings are frequently featured on national media.
Mills is known for her aggressive marketing style, using creative advertising in both traditional and digital media, as well as high-level search engine optimization and drone photography.
If luxury real estate is a global game, then Mills has definitely made the international all-star team. With global relationships in London, Geneva, Barcelona, Milan and beyond, Mills’ reach extends far beyond U.S. borders.
