The City of Yorba Linda is proud to recognize Edie Israel as the 2022 Citizen of the Year! A Yorba Linda resident since 2002, Edie Israel embodies the highest ideals of our exceptional community through her years of philanthropy and service. After moving to Yorba Linda from Colorado with her husband, John, and daughter, Emily, Edie chose real estate as the perfect opportunity to transition the skills she had learned as a successful VP of Sales and Marketing at a medical company. Over the last twenty years, Edie (with the help of John and their business partner, Jim Allen) has built a bona fide real estate empire by prioritizing customer service and client care, which deeply informs how Edie responds to the community: with conviction and care.
Inspired by her deep faith and active membership at Yorba Linda Presbyterian Church, Edie’s success has enabled her to invest in the community in big ways, including sponsoring city-favorite events like Taste of Yorba Linda, and golf tournaments benefiting the Boys and Girls Clubs of Yorba Linda, Placentia, and Brea. Children’s education is also important to Edie, who serves as the chair of the Yorba Linda Woman’s Club’s scholarship program, sponsors and contributes to school programs, spelling bees, and sports teams -- and has even donated laptops to Bryant Ranch Elementary after working with a local client.
“For 20 years we have had the privilege to get to know so many people in the land of gracious living and have been inspired to give back to the community we love” says Edie. Please join us in celebrating Edie Israel as the 2022 Yorba Linda Citizen of the Year.
