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.

We were first time home buyers and he made the process extremely easy. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a home. Carrie Oruche
Very professional and great to work with. Really looks out for client’s best interests. Nirav Shah
This was our first time selling a house. We interviewed 4 other realtors and Jim was obviously the best option. He is extremely knowledgeable and his marketing plan goes above and beyond everyone else's (he spent 5-6 hours getting awesome pictures of the inside and outside of the house). He was able to sell our house in less than a week after it hit the market. Great guy, super friendly. I'd highly recommend him to anyone who is looking to sell a property. Gidget Tay
One of the best people you'll be able to have the pleasure to work with in the entire industry!! Joe Torn
We were on the buyer end of the transaction, with Jim representing us and the seller. He is very upfront about the "boundaries" of having this dual role, which was super impressive to us. He is very personable, and is definitely in the right profession. My husband and I felt like he really liked us - and I mention this because Jim makes you feel important, like you are his only client.

He answered all the questions (and in a short period of time) we had and was very knowledgeable about the house we purchased. We are very happy about the purchase, and definitely will invite him to our housewarming party to play some pool. =)
Michelle Wright
Jim was a pleasure to work with. He was very professional, enthusiastic, punctual, and all around easy to work with. He has a high desire to help people and goes above and beyond for his clients. His energy and drive made selling my home and buying another almost effortless. His knowledge on what I needed exceeded my own and was so helpful in letting me know what to look for in a home that was a good fit for myself and my kids. Communication wasn’t an issue. He would always answer and if he didn’t, he would promptly return a phone call or email. He has a considerable understanding of the market today and of the surrounding areas. I highly recommend Jim Silva and his team for the home selling or home buying process. He will not disappoint.
 
Marina B.
"I have known Jim for over 25 years and would not trust anyone else with my realty needs!!! Not only did I purchase a new home but I also sold my current home at the same time. To say the least, handling both of these tasks at the same time was very stressful for me and my family. Jim was understanding, honest and listened to what I needed. He was very sensitive and professional in providing the items I needed and/or requested at the appropriate time. During this process I was pregnant so my anxiety and emotions were already on alert!! Jim was very patient with me and my demands. He never made me feel as if I were bothering him but instead welcomed my questions & concerns. Jim provided his recommendations that helped me prepare my house for the market. 6 Days later SOLD!!!! We had a couple bumps in the selling and purchase of my homes but Jim took control and was able to get everything back on track! At the end of the day Jim Silva was and will always be my realty quarterback!! I would and have recommended him to friends/family! Who do you have in your corner?" Sarah Peters Nieves - McHenry, IL (Buyer)
Jim Silva is one of the most professional people we have ever met with his expertise and knowledge base we were able to be confident in the selling of our house. He was picked after meeting with several agents and did not disappoint. He is up to date on all the technology and advertising skills needed in today’s digital world. He was available based on any need and updates were regularly received. We would not hesitate to recommend Jim to any family member or friend. Thanks Jim! Beth Croft

Jim did a wonderful job helping us find a home. He has more knowledge than and other realtors I've ever talked to. He took the time to really understand what we were looking for while guiding us through what we could afford as well as all the other details in the process. He was diligent and found us our dream house! He was also patient as we visited multiple homes while trying to find what we wanted. Ultimately he was the one that called when he knew exactly what we would want went on the market. So thrilled we had Jim by our side through this process. Jennifer Finger

Team Silva for the win! Jim & Hannah helped us find the most Perfect first home! We could not be happier! Kayla Katsion
We recently worked with Jim on the sale of our former home and the purchase of our new home. Jim is an outstanding realtor but even more, he is an amazing man of integrity. We had tried to sell our home twice prior and were unsuccessful. When we met with Jim, he came very prepared to have the discussion. He was understanding and honest. We aligned on a price based on his research and our comfort/needs and on the market it went. FOUR DAYS LATER....we had a contract and the house was sold!!! Jim is innovative in his marketing approach and pushes himself to remain ahead of the competition for his clients. He was with us every step of the way on the sale and on the new purchase. He showed us A LOT of homes and was patient as we searched for the right one. He answered all our questions and was always available to talk. He gave us knowledge so we could make informed decisions. The referrals he made for a mortgage company and attorney were outstanding and they were all the utmost professionals. In the end, we not only found an amazing realtor we found a fantastic new friend. We take every opportunity to talk about him to others and hand out his card. Thank you Jim for everything - you blessed our lives! Stacie Sodetz Young
Jim is a warrior!!! Aside from being a really knowledgeable in the industry, he actually cares. He wants the best for his customers and is willing to go far and out of his way to do so. I am telling all of my family about him and much more. Robert Oruche
Jim is the best realitor and also a really great guy! He treats you as if you are family and really cares about his clients. Jim is extremely knowlegable in his field and very professional. We were first time home buyers and he made the process extremely easy. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a home. Carrie Oruche
My wife and I performed an internet search for best realtors in our area. Jim was near the top of the list and after reading a bit more about Jim he sounded like the perfect realtor for our situation. And we were right in our selection. Jim was so easy to work with. He was always friendly and spent a lot of time with us, in person, via email and text. His use of technology, from his photo's of our house to the drone coverage, were fantastic. He was also very patient with us as we had to get our house ready for sale and that took a considerable amount of time to complete before we could list. Jim helped us with decisions all along the way. Without Jim, our house would likely still be on the market. And we got way more money for our house than we would have ever expected. As mentioned previously, Jim was a pleasure to work with. He was always available to us when we had questions, even very late at night. He was extremely patient with us as we needed to get our house ready to sell (minor fixes, painting, etc.) before we could list. He provided helpful input into decisions we had to make and all along the way was so understanding. His knowledge of the market was incredible. His recommendation for list price seemed higher than we thought would be possible to get, but his market analysis was right on the money. We even got more than list price. Overall, Jim is a fantastic agent, and an all around great person. We'd recommend him to anyone looking to sell (or buy). The entire process of selling our home was easy and problem free all due to the knowledge and professionalism of Jim Silva. He was such a pleasure to work with that we consider Jim a friend and not just our real estate agent. Dave & Ellen Doescher
Very knowledgeable. Sold our house quickly in a difficult situation. Came out of it way better than I thought I would. Appreciative. Jayne A.
I am a 'remote seller' meaning I live out of state. Jim handled all the required nuances of selling my former home very well. This was not an easy sale as previous tenants had done damage and most items had to be repaired or replaced in the home. Jim met with contractors, and service technicians with no problem. Finally as a reward he sold the house. A long hard road led to a successful conclusion for all. yelnats2011
Jim Silva is a top notch realtor. Jim makes himself available to the needs of his clients. He delves into the "searching process" involved with looking for just the right home, that meets an individual's needs. Jim listens to his clients and is always ready with possible suggestions or avenues that you, as a client, may not have considered. Jim Silva is truly a realtor that puts the clients needs first! Jim is a wonderful man and quite the professional! tomyjoey
Jim was so wonderful for us. He really took the time to listen to what we were looking for and considered our needs and requirements. He worked with us to find our perfect home. And really, one night, he called and said we had to come see a house that just went on the market - it was perfect for us. He knew exactly what we were looking for and we put an offer down that next morning. He's knowledgeable, attentive, diligent, honest and hard working. He could not have done any more for us and we are so thankful that he was there to help us find our perfect home! jafinger
Jim was great from the first phone conversation I had with him to even helping after we purchased our first home. He only search properties that met my criteria. He didn't try to upsell us on something more costly. He was knowledgeable about repairs done to homes, repairs that would need to be done and would tell us if he didn't recommend a home based on the repairs done or needed. He negotiated great for us to the point where we were able to get a home we didn't think we could afford originally. But Jim got the price down, got us cash back from the seller. We didn't put any money down and walked away with a check for over $1100. The closing was simple. His recommendations for the inspector and lawyer were rock solid. Everything went smooth. After we moved in we had a slight problem with the washing machine and Jim was very helpful in reaching out to the realtor that sold the home. I would highly recommend Jim. He will do a great job for you! Justin Kovach
We were first time home buyers and he made it as simple as can be. He is very knowledgeable in every area of selling/buying a house. Also he recommended a few people and they made the process go by so smooth. Jim really did an amazing job. We now have "Our Home" and we LOVE IT!!!!!! tomigirlr600
Jim was able to tell right away what sort of house we were looking for but still made sure that we at least viewed houses that fell within our parameters so we wouldn't miss any prospective homes. He was knowledgeable about properties we looked at including structural issues that had the potential to cause big problems. Not only did he have valid opinions on the homes themselves he also pointed out things about the yards, the neighbors' yards, the neighborhoods that were favorable as well as unfavorable. When we found the perfect house he negotiated a fair price that took into account some minor shortcomings but emphasized the future value of the property. philbadgley
Jim is so good at his job. We were on a time restraint and Jim met the deadline. We had specific requests and Jim found them. We had questions and Jim answered them all. I highly recommend him to everyone. bkatsion212
To say Jim exceeded our expectations is an understatement. We were not easy clients and had a difficult list of requests for buying a home. Jim met every request, consistently brought excellent options to the table, and never gave up on us through our years of searching. It was evident through many meetings and conversations, that Jim has a deep understanding and knowledge of the real estate market and the home buying/selling process. He made the transaction smooth and effortless. My first step in buying or selling homes in the future will always be to call Jim. Don't make the mistake of using any other agent. Thank you Jim for everything you did for our family! zuser20150517135223841
Jim was very knowledgeable of the area and the pricing we deserved and got. Jim also took care of everything in order to get this done , even when there was a small snag like there is in selling a home Jim took care of it to make it the easiest process we had in selling a home. wedge64
Jim is very professional and knowledgeable of the market. He puts his clients first. He does a great job marketing your home with pictures and videos of your home. If I wasn't for Jim my house wouldn't of sold so fast. I will and have already recommended Jim to sell and buy a house. Mike Mapes
James is very professional, knowledgeable, experienced and patient. He sold our house in 4 days!!! His expertise is undoubtedly amazing!! I will definitely continue to recommend him to my friends and family!! We look forward to him finding our new future dream home! Carina Zamarripa
We have worked with many realtors in the past (including failing to sell twice) Jim came in with a plan and worked with us. He taught us about what he was doing and how we can make a good decision. He sold our house in 4 days! He is a great negotiator and works with excellence! He was patient while we searched for a house and helped us get a great deal on a home that checked off all our boxes. Jim Silva is the best realtor I have had the pleasure of working with. He makes one of the most stressful events in life more manageable by taking much of the stress off your plate and handling it himself. If you are looking to sell or buy, Jim is the best! jmy1178

Jim sold our home in 1 day! We were impressed with his great service and professional presentation of our home. We were so impressed we asked his assistance in purchasing our new home. Jim was with us all the way. zuser20160526153835432
Jim Silva provided us exceptional service and knowledge on our real estate transactions. When I first met with Jim, I told him he had his work cut out for him. Our prior home was in a community that had never fully recovered from the bubble bursting, I had purchased at the market peak in 2006, there was also very little recent home sales in the neighborhood,and while I knew I would be taking a bath on the property, I was cautiously hopeful we would get some equity out of the sale. Jim had a plan to market the property, had done market analysis and given the characteristics of our home provided a realistic expectation of what we would get out of it. His plan produced a high number of showings and delivered multiple offers - the one we accepted was above our asking price, in just 6 days on the market. While Jim had already proven his value in the sale of our prior home, I found that he had to work even harder to get us in our next place. My wife and I had very particular needs, and inventory for what we were looking for in the area we were looking and for our price was not high. He easily showed us over 20 properties(some more than once), sometimes late after work, and sometimes early mornings. His knowledge of the market, knowing what a home should & will ultimately sell for was apparent throughout our search. He's also well trained in the home inspection process, and quickly pointed out multiple issues that my wife and I didn't initially notice. Jim wrote up multiple offers on the homes that we were interested in, but not interested in overpaying for. He would often be working late at night to write up our offers. When we ultimately did agree to purchase our home, he was incredibly helpful in coordinating services (inspections, financing, warranties, radon, etc.). All around I wouldn't (& haven't hesitated) to refer friends and family to Jim. He's had a lot of success and with that he's in high demand, but the results he delivered to my family far and away exceeded my expectations. mikefuller52
We have 2 properties we wanted to sell and decided to shop around for an agent. First, we interviewed a female real estate agent from Remax who had a professional photographer, a couple to stage the property, and buyer agents to push our property. The value she suggested was below where we wanted to list and she was not interested in listing our other property. We decided she wasn't for us. Then we met Jim Silva. Jim had a more strategic approach and was interested with listing both properties. Jim's system was polar opposite of the other agents we met with and had solid numbers to demonstrate. We decided to go with Jim. Jim sold our house for cash in under 2 weeks and for the amount we wanted. When we closed, our check was within a few hundred dollars of what Jim showed us the first day we met him. Also, Jim even vacuumed our house before a showing. Jim will be our agent for all future real estate transactions. We now consider him a friend. Thank you Jim for everything! kraig roberts
Jim was great to work with through the entire selling process. He brought a great deal of knowledge, was dependable and communicated well with us. We moved out of the area but if we ever find ourselves back in the area we know exactly who our realtor would be. I highly recommend Jim and will be passing his information on to my family and friend. stephlowe6
I definitely recommend Jim! He is a very knowledgeable Real Estate agent and explains everything very patiently. He will give you ideas on your home to sell it faster. I live in AZ and he sold my rental home in Huntley, IL in less than 60 days! Thanks Jim! Jajiapreciado5

Jim is very knowledgeable and understanding of what I was looking for. (even though half the time I had no idea what I wanted!) With patience and persistence, he found the perfect place for me! Heather Marie
Jim Silva was fantastic to work with. From our first meeting we knew we had a realtor that was knowledgeable, motivated and made us feel like we were his only client. Jim assisted with open houses, marketing materials and was always available to take a call or offer advise. Nicholas Dalton
Jim Silva's knowledge of the market made my home sales not only successful, but yielded a subdivision high sale. He was very accessible and made time to talk through strategy when we needed to do so.

I highly recommend Jim.

Jim was an absolute pleasure to work with. Patient, candid, and professional is how I would describe him. Jim helped us every step of the way, and most importantly, helped us find our beautiful home. I would recommend Jim to my closest friends and family! Matt Grissom
Jim is everything you would want in a realtor and then some! He is extremely knowledgeable, very friendly and so easy to talk to, always easily accessible and quickly responsive to any requests, and best of all he is patient and never pushy. He truly cares about your home needs as well as your wants and will make you make you feel like you are his most important client. I came across Jim through a rave referral from a friend and am happy to pass on the same rave referral to anyone else looking for a realtor. Heide Kuhns
Jim is a guy who will go above & beyond to help when needed. The process of selling a home can be tough but Jim was there the entire way assisting us with whatever was needed. biscuit60140
