Across the United States, Douglas Elliman will boast 110 offices and more than 7,000 agents.

"Our search for an exceptional company that offered unrivaled technology and marketing platforms, whose agents mirrored the entrepreneurial spirit of Douglas Elliman, led us straight to Teles Properties," said Howard M. Lorber, chairman of Douglas Elliman Realty, LLC. "For almost a decade, buyers and sellers in California and Colorado have trusted Teles with one of their most valuable assets and important life decisions. Teles' well-known reputation as a major driving force for the past 10 years, combined with Peter Loewy, Peter Hernandez, Sharran Srivatsaa and Evan Ageloff's leadership experience, make this an ideal union."

Since 2007, Teles Properties has been a prominent force in serving sellers and buyers of California and Colorado homes, ranging from oceanfront houses in Orange County to Malibu mansions to cliff side estates in Pebble Beach. With over $15 billion in cumulative sales since 2012 alone, Teles was named by Inc. Magazine as one of the fastest growing companies in America as well one of the best entrepreneurial U.S. companies by Entrepreneur Magazine.

"After a decade of growing this company to nearly 600 licensed professionals and staff, I consider this union with Douglas Elliman to be our best growth initiative yet," said Peter Loewy, who will serve as chief executive officer of brokerage for California. "We are gaining exposure in markets around the world via Elliman's global alliance with Knight Frank and elevating our strategic planning in order to optimize growth as well as agent and customer satisfaction."

"There is no other company that could match the national and international reach that our agents and clients will gain from this union," said Sharran Srivatsaa, who will be named president of brokerage, Western Region. "From its new television, print and digital brand campaign, "It's Time for Elliman," to its quarterly magazine, ELLIMAN, to its social media and public relations prowess, operating under the Douglas Elliman banner will help propel our agents to new, untold levels of success."

"We are joining forces to bring the strongest global real estate experience together under one organization," said Scott Durkin, Chief Operating Officer of Douglas Elliman Real Estate. "This is an excellent acquisition for all, because, as part of Douglas Elliman, Teles agents will have more opportunities for exposure while expanding service areas and professional expertise for home buyers and sellers throughout California and Colorado. In addition, the referral opportunity for our agents grows even stronger for their clients in the multiple home market."
