Ismael Salinas



I am a dedicated real estate professional with over 20 years’ experience.  I work with both buyers and sellers covering residential and investment properties in San Antonio. My area of expertise includes Boerne, Alamo Heights, New Braunfels, Cibolo, Castroville, Fair Oaks Ranch, and others. My discipline and commitment to detail in negotiations come from my 36 years of military service in the U. S. Air Force. 

One of my many qualities that sets me apart from other Real Estate professionals is my experience and knowledge concerning investment properties. My portfolio includes rental and rehabbed properties. With this experience, I have developed a keen eye for faults when viewing properties with buyers as well sellers. I have worked with wholesalers on a consistent basis which enables me to provide investment opportunities for my investor clients. I also network with hard money lenders, contractors, and various trades. 

With a real estate career spanning over 2 decades, I have worked with many reputable brokers which have helped me to acquire various different and successful methods and procedures which have helped me to better serve my clients. Patience, listening, knowledge, aggressiveness, and sincerity is what you will receive when you decide to work with me for your real estate needs.

Beyond my career, I enjoy being with my family, golfing, fishing, travel, and worship at CBC in San Antonio. 

What clients have to say about me

After 6 months of having my home listed with no offers, we decided to look for another agent. I came across Mel Salinas and told him that our home had not sold and looks like he’s in for a very tough sell and a challenge. He took the job without hesitation. He sold it quickly, which enabled us to buy a new home with the proceeds. Obviously, we stayed with Mel with our new home purchase. Mel is a great Realtor that stood with us before, during and after the sale on BOTH our homes. We are so grateful and will send referrals to him.
