50 Years PTLA Logo

A Special Message from Gary

When Sam Beler and Bob Wattles started PTLA, they wanted to let the Lord lead them and build a business that aimed to do the right thing and serve the people they worked with. It was the foundation of everything they did, and our company has grown because we remain committed to building on that foundation.

I’ve been in the real estate industry for a long time, and I can think of few companies still operating today that were around when I started, which makes PTLA’s longevity so special. It is a testament to our leaders and the relationships we’ve built that our company has endured when so many others have not.

This year, PTLA celebrates its 50th anniversary. 50 years of hard work, prayer, growth, and serving clients. This is a tremendous achievement, and I couldn’t be prouder to be part of the legacy of this company.

Here is a brief video showing our history and growth, with the special 50-year logo we’re using to commemorate the occasion. We have a few other fun things planned this year to celebrate the milestone, so please keep an eye out for updates.



As I reflect on our history, I wanted to thank our clients for being such an integral part of it. We would not be here without your partnership, and we are honored to have your trust.
