For The Agency Salt Lake City’s Managing Partner, Molly Jones, real estate is more than a job. It’s an essential part of who she is. Molly’s passion for real estate has been an integral part of her identity from day one. As a child, she watched her family renovate an 1890s historic registry home in Capitol Hill and begged to visit open houses as a Saturday activity. She was constantly curious about her father’s work as a real estate attorney and has known for many years that helping clients achieve their goals of home ownership was her true calling. A native of downtown Salt Lake, she serves buyers, sellers and vacation property-seekers on the east end of the valley and beyond.
Molly attended the University of San Diego, which she specifically chose for its real estate program. She was a Presidential Scholar and graduated Magna Cum Laude with a degree in Real Estate and Business, participating in international real estate competitions and serving on the Real Estate Club.
After graduation, Molly began working with Cushman & Wakefield handling transactions for a top-producing broker team. After realizing the impersonal nature of commercial real estate wasn’t a fit, she took a unique opportunity for two years as the training manager for Salt Lake Brewing Company, handling HR and implementing training programs for the growing companies of Squatters and Wasatch Beers.
However, her passion for real estate never waned, and she returned to residential real estate with Coldwell Banker in 2014.
Molly soon joined forces with her colleague Joey Sutorius to form The MOJO Group. Today, Joey serves as fellow Managing Partner at The Agency Salt Lake City.
A tireless team player with an unshakable focus on results, Molly was awarded Rookie of the Year during her first year in the business. In 2016 she was named as one of Coldwell Banker’s International 30 Under 30 and featured on the cover of Utah Business Magazine for their “20 in Their 20s” list.
Molly’s track record for defending her clients’ values and advocating for their goals has earned her the title of “Appraisal Assassin”—she’s won over two dozen appraisal contests, with her current record being an increase in value of $500,000.
In 2017, Molly returned to school, obtaining a Master’s Degree in Real Estate Development from the Ivory Boyer Real Estate Center at the University of Utah David Eccles School of Business SHe went on to achieve an additional graduate certificate in Urban Planning, receiving three separate merit-based scholarships, and was a finalist in the Utah Real Estate Challenge. Her experience with creating development proposals and detailed proformas gives her a unique edge that further empowers her residential real estate clients.
In her free time, Molly enjoys being with her dog, traveling and attending concerts with friends. Outside of the office, she can often be found golfing, entertaining friends on her patio, or attending Utah football games—GO UTES!
