Edith is the proud Owner and Managing Broker of Salas Properties, a boutique real estate Brokerage in Coronado. Salas Properties offers a “concierge style” service; specializing in residential real estate and acquisition of investment properties. Salas Properties opened their doors in January of 2015 as an independent brokerage. Edith and her team proudly customize and tailor services to the needs of each individual client as no two clients or transactions are ever the same. Since its inception, Edith has grown the firm and attracted the best agents in Coronado and San Diego County that are guided by excellence, kindness and respect.
Edith graduated from the University of Southern California (USC) with a Bachelors in Accounting and a Masters in Taxation from Golden Gate University. Shortly after, she started her professional career at Price Waterhouse Cooper, then secured a position with the Internal Revenue Service. After personally investing in real estate and wanting to escape working in a cubicle, Edith fell in love with real estate. She began her real estate career with Century 21 followed by Willis Allen Real Estate and then Owen Properties.
The reason behind the Salas Properties name is two fold: 1) The word ‘sala’ in Spanish means living room, hence, ‘salas’ is the plural form. A living room is arguably the most important room in a home, as it is the heart of a home. 2) To honor her parents for their courage, relentless work ethic, and vision to create a life unavailable to them in Mexico. Her parents immigrated from Mexico as teenagers with a 3rd and 6th grade education, leaving everything they knew behind for a shot at the American Dream…not only for themselves, but their future children.
Edith is beyond humble and grateful for the lifestyle Coronado has graced her both personally and professionally. She is recognized as a Top Agent in Coronado and San Diego County, ranking amongst the highest performers in real estate sales. She is featured monthly in the TV show LifeStyles San Diego, as the ambassador of Coronado. Her joy in life is raising her two beautiful children in Coronado, coaching and mentoring her real estate team, and working for the benefit of her clients. She loves spending time with family, friends, practicing yoga and sampling San Diego’s finest restaurants.
Edith is the epitome of the American Dream. She encourages all to support a small, independent, locally owned business..
