Elizabeth Teske Named a GlobeSt CRE 2021 Woman of Influence
Dermody Properties is pleased to share that Elizabeth Teske, Senior Vice President, Property Management, was selected as a 2021 Woman of Influence by GlobeSt. Real Estate Forum. Over 700 submissions were made for the program, and we are very proud of Liz for being selected as one of the finalists as she truly deserves the recognition.
Liz is a Certified Property Manager (CPM) with more than 30 years of experience in the industry. She has demonstrated an incredibly high level of customer service and expertise throughout her career and is a pioneer in her industry, not only as a woman, but as a professional in a senior-level position within the industrial/logistics industry.
Liz joined the company in 2009 at the height of the Great Recession, where she worked tirelessly to retain and satisfy our customers. That experience set her up to succeed for a lifetime so when the pandemic changed our world, Liz was ready for it. Her life skills, integrity, dedication, long-standing relationships and professionalism are exactly why she is the most worthy recipient of this recognition.
Outside of her work with Dermody Properties, she is a leader of and contributor to the Northern Nevada chapter of CREW (Commercial Real Estate Women) network. In 2019, when the Northern Nevada chapter of NAIOP was awarded Chapter of the Year in the Small Chapter category, Liz was the chapter’s president.
Below are testimonials from Liz’s colleagues that helped in her nomination. We thank each individual for helping secure this much-deserved award for Liz:
“Especially during COVID, she has been the connection to our customers, and in the world of property management, that’s where the promises are kept. In hiring Liz, it was never a gender issue. It was about hiring the most qualified person. She is a leader for women in real estate, has evolved nationally and I am amazed at how much she accomplishes, both professionally and personally.” – Michael C. Dermody, CEO and Chair
“Is anything more influential than being in the middle of everything? That’s Liz Teske. Nothing happens at Dermody Properties that Liz doesn’t touch. Every investment, every hire, every customer relationship. Moreover, every problem. Liz keeps the trains running. An unsung hero disinterested in accolades. THE team player. Indispensable. Her accomplishments are the companies’ accomplishments.” – Tim Walsh, Partner and Chief Investment Officer at Dermody Properties

It has been our absolute pleasure to get to know her both personally and professionally. I highly recommend her for this award. She deserves it!” – Debra M.
