About Tierra Properties

Founded in 1986, Tierra Properties offers clients a full-service real estate company with a personal touch. We provide residential and commercial real estate service throughout the greater Los Angeles area. Our policy of treating each client as if he or she were our only client has allowed us to develop many mutually beneficial long-term professional relationships.

Through our affiliate RST & Associates, we offer full-service management of properties from single family homes to apartments to commercial and industrial real estate. We have a State-certified MAI (Member Appraisal Institute) appraiser on staff. Property tax audits and re-evaluations are also available. Because of our close involvement with the state and local political situation through the Apartment Association of Greater Los Angeles and the California Association of Realtors, we are able to advise clients regarding current and upcoming legislation that may affect their investment.

Tierra Properties would welcome an opportunity to help you achieve your real estate goals. Our office is located at 11866 Wilshire Blvd, three blocks east of Bundy Drive in West Los Angeles. Or give us a call at (310) 477-3192.
