We are very concerned about our tenants that have been forced to cease operations and are actively lobbying our representatives in State and Federal government to support Small Businesses and their employees through direct assistance. We encourage you to do so as well!  We are also hopeful that the Federal government will provide emergency modifications to banking regulations that will support the Commercial Real Estate industry as well. We have also been gathering as much information as possible to share with our tenants during this crisis and here are some ideas:

Small Business Assistance:

Here are a few links for small businesses to reach out to:







State of Florida Program :

The Florida Small Business Emergency Bridge Loan Program to support small businesses impacted by COVID-19. The bridge loan program will provide short-term, interest-free loans to small businesses that experienced economic injury from COVID-19.

•The application period is open and runs through May 8, 2020. More information is at

•The Business Damage Assessment survey has been activated to assess the impact of COVID-19 on Florida’s local business operations. The survey, managed by DEO, will evaluate businesses affected by COVID-19 and the impacts the virus has had on the local economy so actions to implement appropriate relief programs can begin.

The survey can be taken online at

Please share and let us know if you have any other ideas. Together we will get through this,

Stay healthy,

Dear Clients, Partners and Friends:

2019 began with new goals, new ideas and a new vision of our Courtelis brand.

Our “C” logo was redesigned and redefined each month, to give us a fresh perspective on our brand and mission.

January started with a CHANGE. We tried out new strategies to improve work tactics, attitudes, and performance. Real Estate is constantly changing and evolving so we have to adapt to stay ahead of the game.

With change comes COMMITMENT. Our employees renewed their dedication to provide excellent customer service to our clients, partners, and colleagues.

CREATIVITY helps to stimulate “out of the box” thinking and we researched new and exciting concepts that will breathe new life into our retail developments and our communities.

CONSERVATION. We remain dedicated to protecting our environment and we made a commitment to recycling in our office and switched to more environmentally friendly materials.

 CONNECTIONS are critically important in life and business, especially in our world of deal-making and relationship building.   

C for CHARACTER was dedicated to Alec P. Courtelis, the founder of Courtelis Company who was a man of great leadership, espousing education, hard work, and charity. A man of true CHARACTER.

COLLABORATION recognized that success comes with sharing insights and new information with colleagues and industry friends.

CONSTRUCTION – We kicked off several new development projects in 2019, highlighted by Murano at Three Oaks.

CALIENTE showcased Hispanic businesses in our shopping centers and communities as well as saluted the diverse Hispanic heritages of our team members.

CARING was dedicated to Cancer awareness, and good health.

Creating COMMUNITIES looked at our business model and recognized that each of our properties represents more than just buildings. They impact the COMMUNITY in many ways

So the Courtelis Company redefined itself as a community developer and manager in 2019 and looks forward to working with each of you in 2020. We thank all staff for their hard work and efforts in this initiative.

Happy New Year!

Courtelis is proud to feature Eduvillage Learning Center during the Hispanic Heritage Month.

C is for CALIENTE.
Today, we are proud to feature EduVillage Learning Center as a successful Hispanic business and a longtime tenant at Kendall Professional Village located on Kendall Drive and SW 97 Avenue.
The learning center shares the same building with the University of Miami Health Center and CVS drug store and is owned and operated by Carlos and Gretta Martinez.
Carlos is President and CEO of an 800 employee non-profit organization serving disabled and older adults in South Florida, and Gretta is the day-to-day operator and director of the learning center that primarily serves the doctors, nurses, and employees of its neighbor U Health and nearby Baptist Health Hospital Main Campus.
The center serves 98 children and their families. “ Gretta is a teacher and psychologist,” says her husband Carlos. “She is passionate about the care and safety of the children under the care of the professional teaching staff, but you can’t be effective raising resilient children without the input of everyone involved in the child’s life”. The school was inspired and modeled after the book “ It takes a village to raise a child” written by former first lady Hillary Clinton, which emphasis on the need to have multiple influencers such as parents, grandparents, siblings, physicians, coaches and people involved in a child’s life working in tandem to increase the chance of the child’s success.
Education runs in Gretta’s DNA starting with her grandmother, Stella Carty, who owned and operated schools in their native Peru. Gretta started her version of the school in the U.S. in 2005 and has operated various schools since then. The key to the couple’s success goes beyond education. “ You must be in-tune with the needs of each family that you serve in order to be successful in preparing children to be resilient and provide them with the fundamentals to succeed in early learning”.
