Teles Properties Taps Real Estate Veteran, Pat Garner, as Managing Director of San Diego Region

Premiere Luxury Real Estate Firm Poised for Further West Coast Expansion

BEVERLY HILLS, CA--(Marketwired - Mar 28, 2016) - Teles Properties -- the fastest growing luxury residential real estate firm in Southern California -- is pleased to announce that Pat Garner, an award-winning broker with nearly 30 years of real estate experience, will be the new managing director of its San Diego region. The burgeoning company's deepening San Diego presence is part of a strategic expansion plan to add value to the real estate consumer and allow for cross-marketing and referral opportunities up and down the Coast.

"San Diego is the best kept secret in California real estate," says Peter Hernandez, president and founder of Teles Properties. "The city truly embodies the essence of California and is the rising star of lifestyle real estate. Pat brings this market a unique combination of sales and leadership experience combined with the highest degree of integrity, warmth and professionalism. We could not have chosen a more perfect person to serve as managing director of the region."

A native San Diegan, Garner's 27 years of real estate experience includes being a branch manager and designated broker for a real estate office in San Diego. She has overseen 2,000 licensees, eight office managers and 130 agents in the San Diego area and has held key positions at the San Diego real estate board. In 2013, Garner was recognized by her peers and the San Diego Association of Realtors as Broker of the Year. Making the bold decision to leave her leadership role, Garner joined the Teles family in 2015 as one of the company's first San Diego agents.

"I have never been more excited and passionate about the professional journey I'm on with Teles," says Garner. "It comes back to the culture of the team and how the leaders of this firm built and preserved the culture they've so carefully developed. I'm thrilled to be a part of it."

Teles' newly established San Diego presence is part of a larger expansion plan that will come to fruition over the course of the year. Its current state-of-the-art flagship office is based in Carlsbad, and in the coming months, Teles plans to add several more offices in other strategic surrounding locations.

With demand for properties at an all-time high, Teles is positioned to dominate the San Diego market. Between 2014 and 2015, median home prices rose twice as fast in San Diego (6 percent) than in Los Angeles and Orange County (3 percent). With a variety of micro markets to choose from in San Diego, the city is teeming with qualified buyers -- from the high-end oceanfront buyer in La Jolla to the young urban-dweller in Little Italy to the laid-back family buyer in Carlsbad. With access to beaches, jobs, entertainment, schools and an unmistakable California coastal lifestyle, it's no wonder that San Diego is considered one of the most undervalued real estate markets in all of California.
