When we first opened our doors in November 2007, the mortgage crisis was beginning to unfold and signs of a downturn in real estate were all around us. The most common question we were asked is, “Why would anyone open a real estate company right now?” Well, we knew the timing was absolutely perfect. We anticipated big changes in the real estate industry as big companies had become too vast and impersonal. It was time to present a high-end boutique unlike any other. We planned to attack the status quo on all fronts, using our experience and energy to make our goals a reality. Through our unrivaled agent support, we enabled Teles agents to provide clients with an extraordinary level of service and professionalism. Finally, we knew our directed use of technology would give us a tremendous advantage. Why Teles? Because we have created a whole new dimension in luxury real estate that is destined to lead the industry well into the future.

Every minute of every day, we think, we create, we commit and we execute. We are passionate about redefining the real estate experience for our clientele. We don’t try to be different as a novelty.

Chairman & CEO, International Attorney
“With our diverse executive team, combined with the unsurpassed talent of our agents, Teles Properties is taking luxury real estate beyond the 21st Century.”
“I personally have been on all sides of real estate transactions – as an investor, as an advisor and general counsel, as a syndicator and developer. In expanding Teles Properties, I looked to my roots in the Silicon Valley and took inspiration from such progressive companies as Apple, Facebook and Google. We always ask ourselves what hasn’t been tried? Why hasn’t it been tried? Could it make the experience better? We continue to expand into every aspect of real estate, including research, analytics, marketing, escrow and finance. Through this growth, our clients benefit from the ease of one-stop-shopping. Teles continues to mature and prosper, and we will continue to be an industry leader for generations to come.”

Real estate is a person’s largest investment, and we work to protect that investment. Teles Properties utilizes unrivaled technology and adds a human overlay to redefine the industry; we give our agents all of the tools necessary so they can devote maximum time to clientele; we offer leadership, marketing and services to Teles agents at a time when other companies are scaling back.
