About PTLA

Investing in Commercial Real Estate For Value Growth

Photo of appartment buildingAt PLTA, we build strong, long-lasting relationships with our clients, and then deliver steady year-over-year returns to them. We understand commercial real estate investing and what it takes to succeed, seizing the moment when an investment is right, and aiming for long-term growth rather than a quick turn. We have consistently purchased value properties in strong economic markets and then managed and maintained them to high standards, for a strong ROI. This philosophy has served our investors well since PTLA was founded.

Over 90% of our investors have reinvested with PTLA and 75% of our investors are invested in more than one of our partnerships

In 1973, Sam Beler and and Bob Wattles created PTLA Corporation with a dream of building a commercial real estate company that would invest in properties of sound economic value, were not heavily leveraged and would produce a good return for investors.  At the same time they were committed to living their lives and operating their business by Christian principals. This dream is now a flourishing reality, and PTLA continues to have these guiding principles at its core.

Today, PTLA has approximately 250 private investors who have invested in a wide variety of commercial real estate projects that meet PTLA’s original investment criteria.  A true testimony to our success is our investor retention and referral rate. Over 90% of our investors have reinvested with PTLA and 75% of our investors are invested in more than one of our partnerships.

We pride ourselves on our stable rate of return



I trust PTLA with my hard-earned dollars and believe they will continue to multiply them steadily, one step at a time, over the years ahead.
