Testimonials

Jim Silva is one of the best real estate agents I’ve ever worked with. I’m a retired Coldwell Banker agent in Colorado and have sold hundreds of homes and worked with many agents.
We went to Illinois to prepare my sister’s home I. sleepy Hollow so it could be sold. From our first interaction with Jim to the closing, we experienced his enthusiasm, hard work and dedication. Jim was, without a doubt, head and shoulders above the crowd in terms of professionalism, dedication and ethics. Jim went beyond our expectations. He is a credit to the real estate profession.
Jim sold my sister’s home in 5 days!
I highly recommend Jim Silva for any of your real estate needs.
