We Are Celebrating 60 Years in Business!
Fueled by an enterprising spirit that values relationships above all, we’re proud to carry on our family business.
Our roots date back to 1961, when company founder, Edward J. Santos, started building his business out of the trunk of his car in Miramar and Miami, Florida! Prior to this, he worked as an accountant for various firms in Miami after attending the University of Miami. During this time, he was determined to be his own boss, so began Ed Santos Associates. His first office, with rent at $75 a month, was located off Pembroke Road and 63rd Ave in Miramar, FL. He moved a few streets down to an office off Pembroke Rd and the Florida turnpike in 1965 until moving to Griffin Road and University Drive in Davie, FL in 1982. In 2007, the office moved to Pembroke Pines. Over the years Ed has included family and friends in his workforce, beginning with his wife, Pat, mother in law, sister, sister in law, his 4 children, 10 grandchildren and friends ranging from secretary, file clerk, computer tech and income tax experts. Our successes lay in faith, family, friends and loyal clients! Santos has had many Associates over the years which included ‘Woody’ Savage and ‘Don’ Uebelacker for over 40 years. Today his four daughters and grandchildren are helping carry on his commitment to family, friends, and our community. Join our clients in becoming part of our history. We will give you…JUST ONE LESS THING TO WORRY ABOUT!

Dear Clients and Friends,
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Edward J. Santos, Santos Associates’ founder. Ed passed away from Leukemia complications, on November 1, 2020 surrounded peacefully by his loving family.
Ed was deeply loved by his family and friends and it cannot be put into words the loss that is felt by his passing. He took great pleasure in bringing his business to its current position, thanks to all of you. Ed valued each of you and the relationships that formed. In January, we will celebrate 60 years in business.
Ed was an extraordinarily bright and accomplished entrepreneur who built a company that still represents and practices the same principles he used to create Santos Associates. Ed had an exceptional work ethic, long term commitments to his clients and diligence in strong financial practices. His belief that his colleagues were integral to both his personal and the company’s success made him truly one of a kind, along with his laugh.
We thank you heartily for the patronage you have extended to us and sincerely hope that the same will be continued in the future.
Santos Associates & family
