While individual Teles agents are used to bringing home honors from various industry publications, the company itself is no stranger to racking up accolades.
The latest feather in the Teles cap comes from the top tier business trade Entrepreneur Magazine.
Entrepreneur Magazine identifies 360 businesses each year that are mastering that continuous expansion of growth that keeps all their parts growing in harmony. To do this, they evaluated companies based on four metrics: impact, innovation, growth, and leadership. The result is their Entrepreneur 360 list.
This year, Teles Properties made the top 20, coming in at a proud number sixteen.
“What successful companies—for example, Amazon—do is to constantly search for something better for customers,” says Jeffrey A. Carr, a professor of marketing and entrepreneurship at New York University’s Stern School of Business. “It’s this never-ending betterment that has to happen.” And that betterment can’t happen all at once. A business is a collection of parts: revenue, marketing, sales, staffing, and so on. A founder may be better at some than others. Some are simply harder than others. But to be a well-rounded, 360-degree business, they all must thrive.
“We are honored to be included among the best of the top entrepreneurial companies,” says Teles Co- President Peter Hernandez. “At Teles, we strive to lead with intelligence and have worked to grow our footprint thoughtfully and strategically. To be recognized and selected by such an esteemed and respected magazine is truly humbling, and an indication that we are doing something right.”
This accolade caps a particularly successful year for Teles, in which the company expanded its Southern California footprint with the addition of new offices in the Pacific Palisades, Palm Springs, Manhattan Beach and San Diego. Bringing together the state’s most elite and successful agents, Teles equips agents with an unparalleled technology platform that simplifies and elevates every aspect of a real estate transaction.
“The spirit of entrepreneurship is at the very core of Teles,” says Teles co-president Sharran Srivatsaa. “All of the firm’s growth has come organically—one agent, one staff member, one office at a time. Our growth has been intentional and by design, to build the most unique California luxury real estate market footprint and to be phenomenal advisors to our clients.”
