Tessabella Jelten is widely known as a marketing strategist, real estate coach, and digital marketing educator. She started investing in real estate straight out of high school with nothing but passion and a laptop. Something most people would think is impossible, how do you start investing in real estate with with no money to your name? She learned the ins and outs of real estate, how to raise capital, and how to acquire properties. When she was 19, Tessabella had achieved a remarkable milestone when she managed to flip 25 houses, using little to none of her own money. Then, she quickly built a name for herself, remodeling and restoring historic houses in the valley.
She also discovered what may be one of her strongest skills: branding and marketing. Tessabella became deeply connected to her “why” as she documented her journey on social media. On those challenging days of building a brand, she never forgets why she started. This commitment to her brand has led to massive gains on social media with over 100,000 followers across all platforms.
As a female business owner, Tessabella has created a unique approach to building, scaling, and branding real estate companies. Her brand grew into a residential real estate team, which formed an exciting partnership with the Phoenix Suns. 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. She’s had the pleasure of working with TV celebrities and influencers from hit shows on HGTV, Bravo, Netflix, and much more.
As contradictory as it sounds, Tessabella actually thrives under pressure and stress. While most people resist it, she invites turbulence because she knows it will lead to some of her biggest breakthroughs and successes. Instead of creating New Year’s resolutions as goals to achieve over the course of a year, Tessabella condenses them to 12 weeks. However, she understands the value of downtime, so she also schedules two days to unplug and reset her mind, body, and spirit.
To keep herself on the right path, Tessabella is a huge supporter of adopting a morning routine. You can’t wage war on the world if you can’t win the war against yourself. Routines create stability. Even on the hard days, foundational habits will keep you moving in the right direction.
Tessabella recognizes the importance of balance in her life, too. With a rich and full schedule, she knows the importance of scheduling time for fun and relaxation. By making time for things she enjoys, such as painting, yoga, and running, she not only avoids burnout, but taps into her creative side. And, with her strength in digital marketing, flowing creativity is one of her greatest assets.
Through years of trial and error, she’s built entire marketing suites and lead generation funnels, all because she cracked the code, sending her on a massive growth trajectory. Now, her passion for real estate has also turned into a passion for helping others in the industry. She’s a Nationally Recognized Real Estate Coach, featured at national speaking engagements such as Inman, Hyperfast Agent, LabCoat Agents. Tessabella helps real estate professionals around the world with her signature success 4S Formula.
Above all, Tessabella is wildly committed to her journey. She is open to the changes that come so she isn’t paralyzed by inaction. Having overcome obstacles that many others may never face, she has the opportunity to be the light for others who struggle to see a way out of their own challenging situations. “If you go into every single day…working for a purpose bigger than yourself, putting one foot in front of the other, and working to be the best version of yourself, then you’ll be highly rewarded,” she says.
Tessabella’s success came not from slaying big, audacious goals. But by taking her big goals and breaking them down into manageable steps. This helps you to see the path of least resistance and achieve more wins as you move in the right direction. You can follow Tessabella on Instagram @tessaabellaa.
