Cardenas Realty was founded in 1947 by Salvador “S. M.” Cardenas, deceased, S.M., or “Chalo“ as he was called by close friends and family, served the greater Edinburg and McAllen area in residential, farm & ranch, and commercial real estate for decades. Cardenas was also a prominent radio personality on the Valley's KURV radio. As a master of marketing, honest dealings and the utmost courtesy, S.M. led Cardenas Realty to become one of the area's most successful real estate firms in its time. He and a handful of other local realtors were instrumental in establishing the present day Multiple Listing Service in the McAllen area which now boasts over 1000 realtor members. S.M.'s two sons, Charles C. Cardenas and Don S. Cardenas, both joined the firm in the 1970's and later became Brokers.
Charles Cardenas is the Broker for Cardenas Commercial Properties located in McAllen, Texas, where he specializes in large commercial investment properties and property management.
Don Cardenas is the Broker for Don Cardenas Realty in Edinburg, Texas, where he specializes in residential, farm & ranch and select commercial properties. He is a member of the Greater McAllen Board of Realtors and Edinburg Board of Realtors. Don is a past president of the Edinburg Board of Realtors. He is also a past President of the Edinburg Rotary Club. Don served as a Board of Director for the Edinburg, Chamber of Commerce and is a parishoner at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Edinburg.
Don Cardenas Realty today is still a family run organization that prides itself on the fundamentals that S.M. established 70 years ago... honesty, integrity and courtesy. Few Real Estate offices in the Rio Grande Valley have been in business for this length of time and fewer have kept it in the family. We encourage you to shop around other real estate firms and invite you see for yourself why Cardenas Realty stands above the rest.
