    Women of the South Bay

The Salzman Real Estate Team serves the Greater South Bay real estate market from LAX to Long Beach, representing both buyers and sellers of residential and multifamily properties. Realtors® Carol Glover and Maria Zuniga specialize in working with individuals and families to build generational wealth. 

Carol has worked as a real estate broker, developer and real estate attorney since the 1980s. Maria has been involved with real estate since 1992, initially as a certified real estate paralegal and then transitioning to sales as a broker.

How has your professional performance exceeded your clients’ expectations?

To quote one client, “They showed us that we mattered and made us feel like we were their only client.” We are highly responsive and “walk the talk.” We are both longtime owners and investors and know how critically important it is that we understand our clients’ needs and goals. In this role, we are advisors to our clients and transform their ideas into successful purchases and sales.

Why did you choose to work in the field of real estate?

We were both introduced to real estate at an early age through our families and experienced how quickly it can build and sustain wealth. After working in the practice of real estate law, we realized that we worked well together. We also saw how problems can quickly emerge if people are not properly represented. Real estate transactions are complex, and you need a good “tribe” around you to succeed. We have both had great advisors and mentors along the way, and we feel strongly that it is up to us to help others get on the real estate escalator to building wealth.

What role does your family play in your career?

Maria: My husband has been my partner in all of my real estate ventures and is supportive of everything we’ve done. Following our lead, our kids, who are 18 and 23, are building nest eggs to create their own real estate portfolios. 

Carol: Family is everything. Dave Salzman, who works as our team lead, is my husband and partner. We are highly collaborative—especially on our development projects—because we both bring our special talents to the deal. 2022 was an exciting year for us as we assisted our kids, who are 32 and 27, in purchasing homes in Brooklyn and New Orleans.

What qualities differentiate you from others in your field?

We envelop our clients with 360 degrees of support. Dave is a real estate finance guru, Carol is a real estate attorney and together they share expertise in development projects. Maria excels at deal structuring and is our customer service ace. Working our respective strengths enables us to provide our clients with full-service attention before, during and after the transaction.
