Terra Vista Management’s core mission is to cultivate precious experiences that enrich the lives of its guests, investors, and team members.

· Real Estate Investment Management and Investor Relations

Terra Vista Management, Inc. (TVM) manages residential and hospitality-oriented income properties, with a specialty in luxury manufactured housing communities, recreation vehicle resorts and marinas. Many of TVM’s key personnel were part of the leadership of DeAnza Group. Formed in 1969 by real estate attorney Herbert M. Gelfand, TVM’s affiliated predecessor, DeAnza Group, pioneered the previously unthinkable concept of high-end mobile home and recreational vehicle (RV) parks with resort-level amenities and hospitality.
Over the course of three decades, DeAnza provided expert services involving acquisitions, property management, finance, development and disposition, employing a team of over 600 people, and acquired income producing properties on behalf of 16 private and public partnerships representing a total of 12,750 investors. The portfolio ultimately included 35 properties located in California, Florida, Georgia, Arizona, Colorado, Nevada, Illinois, Oregon and Washington. The company also provided fee management services to private and institutional owners as well as homeowners associations.
In 1994 the company sold the majority of its portfolio to what is now Equity LifeStyle Properties (ELS). Several key properties were retained, and TVM was formed by former DeAnza Group president Michael Gelfand to continue the tradition of providing unparalleled real estate investment and property management services in the MHP and RV space.
Our mission is to cultivate harmonious communities and treasured experiences that enrich the lives of our guests, tenants, investors, and team members. This mission extends to all of the business units that Terra Vista manages, including RV resorts, residential communities, marinas, restaurants, event venues and recreational facilities.
