Tessabella Jelten is widely acclaimed as a marketing strategist, real estate coach, and digital marketing educator. But before she made her mark in real estate, she came from a background of hard knocks. She grew up poor, enduring many challenges before the age of 14. However, she actually counts herself as fortunate because these challenges gave her the tenacity, perseverance, and work ethic she would need to be a successful female business owner.
After high school, she stepped out into the unknown when she left her home in Oregon to start a new life in sunny Arizona. Things moved quickly as she started investing in real estate with nothing but passion and a laptop. She flipped her first house at 18 with negative 36 cents in her bank account. A year later, Tessabella had achieved a remarkable milestone when she managed to flip 25 houses.
She also discovered what may be one of her strongest skills: branding and marketing. As she documented her journey on social media, she quickly built a name for herself remodeling and restoring historic houses in the valley.
Tessabella considers herself to be a student of life. She goes into every interaction with massive confidence because she knows the value she can bring to the relationship. But, Tessabella also knows it’s important to stay open-minded. Each unique situation brings different viewpoints and the potential for multiple ways of doing things. Keeping that “student” mentality keeps you flexible and on a winning streak!

Through hard work and relentless passion, she has opened doors to work with some of the largest names in the industry and commercially recognized brands.
