My fiancee and I were first time home buyers when we entered the market and chose Silke based on her reviews. Our experience with her was beyond exceptional! Having never shopped for a house before, it took us probably a month and a half of looking at houses before we really started to understand what we liked and didn't like. In the end, it was Silke who knew what was best for us, more than us. She took the initiative to show us houses we hadn't originally thought about, and her intuition was absolutely right. Her ability to guide you, while being very cognizant and respectful of your wishes is extremely impressive. She is nothing but professional throughout and we've really become friends through this process. In addition, her negotiating skills and expertise in getting the best deal possible for her clients is unparalleled. She is definitely a realtor you want on your side! She also works directly with a financier and loan agency to have personal face-to-face guidance through every step of the home-buying process. I cannot imagine a better experience in working with her, and she showed great patience in dealing with our inexperience! She comes with our highest recommendation.
