Johnstone & Johnstone grew from the dream of Gordon Johnstone who
started a real estate career shortly after World War I in 1919 and
formed his own company in 1939.
The first branch offices were opened in Grosse Pointe Park and downtown
Detroit. Additional branches were added in St. Clair Shores, Birmingham
and Farmington before being relocated under one roof at the present
location of 82 Kercheval Avenue, Grosse Pointe.
The company was passed on to Paris DeSanto from the Johnstone family in
1991. In 1995, the company merged with Real Estate One, retaining its
name and strong market identity in the Grosse Pointe community.
Two other prominent Grosse Pointe companies, Champion & Baer, and R.G.
Edgar & Associates, joined the company in 1999. Today the company with
a total of 55 sales agents, has consistently been the leader in sales
volume in Grosse Pointe and surrounding communities.
