Edmund DeSoto is broadly renowned as a far-sighted and imaginative front-runner in the luxury real estate industry. President of Edmund DeSoto Properties LLC under ONE Sotheby’s International Realty and EDS BULLION INVESTORS LLC. He has steadily been recognized for his national / global promotional marketing expertise acquired from years of experience leading the international marketing department for Club France, a private enterprise of The French Government Tourist Office and Maison De La France in New York City. He also acted and collaborated with the global touring delegations of The Luxury Division of Relais & Châteaux to promote Club France, and FRANCE Magazine.



“Edmund came to us highly recommended by dear friends. It was time to sell our home in Islamorada in the Florida Keys. It was passed down from our parents to all their children as an inheritance.

Divided between five siblings, it was a very special property that had distinct memories for each one of us. As a very challenging seller that I am, Edmund took the time to walk me through the process wisely, patiently, and very tactfully. I see that now. Imagine doing the same with four other very challenging siblings.

We all got to see him work under the most excruciating conditions, but He soon gained our full confidence. We gave him room to do what he does best. Not much long after the house went under contract, and we finally closed for $4.1M.

Edmund guided us through a seamless experience. He is extremely professional and paid astonishing attention to detail, and much consideration to the staging detail all the way to closing. We have other properties in the Florida Keys. When we are ready to sell again, we will make sure that Edmund will be in charge of selling it”

“Edmund was warmly endorsed to me by an acquaintance that recently had his apartment sold by him. I was impressed by Edmund’s attention to detail and accuracy.

When I interviewed Edmund, I felt confident immediately with his professionalism and proficiency. Being an art dealer both in France and the United States, I perceived from our first encounter of his very rich knowledge of both traditional and modern architecture. In my initial interview with him I came to know that his experience in personal Real Estate investments goes back to the late 1980’s as he has been an aggressive investor in Real Estate since then.

I feel very comfortable with Edmund. He is honest, and transparent in his dealings. He is not impressed easily. He brought an enthusiasm and a sense of professionalism to the selling on my home combined with a sense of urgency with proven results.

In the future when I am ready to sell my New York Park Avenue and Boca Raton homes, Edmund will be by my side in those very special transactions.

​​​​​​​”Edmund has a remarkable social media presence. Besides having his properties marketed and advertised by ONE Sotheby’s International Realty, he integrates his knowledge and expertise used during his years under the direction of Michelle Bouquier, Director of the French Government Tourist Office and now senior advisor at the Finance and Economy Department of Monaco, and Monaco Private Label.

Edmund’s experience with the global touring delegations of The Luxury Division of Relais & Châteaux to promote Club France, and FRANCE Magazine generated millions of dollars in profit for the French Department of Tourism, Maison De La France, and La Maison Française.”

“Since the first day we met Edmund at the Jaguar Dealership in West Palm Beach, my wife and I knew that Edmund will be the realtor that would sell our home and buy our new retirement dream castle. Edmund has been proficient from the very beginning in providing us information on our future home.

Although we have not yet found the home of our dreams, once we do Edmund will be the one to make the transaction on our beautiful Aero Club Home in Wellington. We trust Edmund. He is translucent with us and holds nothing back.

Honesty and sincerity are very important to us. We can clearly see in the event of representing both parties how he would operate without having any conflict between our buyers and us.”

Mr. and Mrs. Frank Skeen – Aero Club Wellington Florida


“We interviewed Edmund on the phone while being out of state. The moment we spoke to him we knew he was for us. We signed the Listing Agreement with him and literally went into contract seven days later.

The first day after our listing went live, our property was fully photographed and videoed. He held very aggressive OPEN HOUSE EVENTS which were done by appointment only. He held events for four days in a row and at the end of the week we were under contract. Our property showed up in every single platform one can think of.

Our friends and family members told us they saw our home in YouTube, Facebook, and Instagram. Not to mention in other promotions in Google and local papers. As a matter of fact, Edmund continued to have OPEN HOUSE EVENTS after we had a contract. He continued to invest his time even though we were happy and secured with our contract.

He’s astonishing, I’m absolutely sold out with him. Now he is actively looking for an oceanfront condo for us and we are thrilled to have him. I truly recommend Edmund to others in a heartbeat.”
