Geltmore has intentionally stayed lean, growing only as needed which allows us to cultivate a culture that encourages out of the box thinking and focuses on top quality talent.
We pride ourselves in creating extraordinary assets in top locations through-out the Southwest.
While the core Geltmore Team is small, we have refined a tremendous talent pool which is available via strategic relationships with local and national architects, engineers, financing consultants, brokerage firms, and technology companies. These relationships allow the Geltmore Team to undertake projects on any scale, large or small. It is with pleasure to introduce you to the Getlmore Team:
