Colonel James Withers Sloss founded the giant furnaces on First Avenue North in 1882. It was one of the first commercially successful blast furnaces that would essentially help establish Birmingham, leading to an explosive growth that would brand it the Magic City at the turn of the last century.
It was from these roots and a passion for his home town that led A. Page Sloss to start his real estate company in 1920. His son, A. Page “Pete” Sloss, Jr., remains integral to what is still a family business. Today, Pete’s daughter, Cathy Sloss-Jones, serves as President and CEO of Sloss Real Estate. Together with a team of passionate real estate professionals, the extended Sloss family continues to redefine Birmingham’s future through their visionary approach which includes renovation, redevelopment, and community building, seeing potential in real estate that others may not see.
