      Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $325K in Fairfield, CA.
      Hire this agent, you will not find someone better to represent your interests than Silke.

      I was forced to retire from law enforcement service due to an injury, and had to sell my home. Silke responded to me within an hour of my sending an email to her, inquiring if she were available to help me. Not only was I upside down, but I was emotional and hated being in the position I was in. Silke was respectful of my feelings, and at the same time acknowledged my financial situation. She took my case and ran me through all of my options. Then, once educated, I was able to make a much more informed decision without my emotions derailing me from the right choice.

      She had a buyer for my home in approximately 3 days, willing to pay almost 50,000 more than asking.

      Now the paperwork was completed and the idiot bank decides it does not want to accept the offer, but put us through an auction. A month later the idiot bank realizes that the highest offer they received was 125,000 lower than what Silke had already secured. So, again with the paperwork. And on and on.

      Silke stuck with me and this whole process for over an entire year. During that time, the bank changed hands, lost the file, put a new person on the file, and about six other excuses for dragging me through this process. Silke was able to retain the original buyer, at a higher price - all while keeping me calm. I had moved to another state at this point, and she even arranged for the paperwork to be either electronically signed or brought to my front door.

      She was respectful, easy to communicate with, and always returned my texts or phone calls almost immediately. She shared email communications with me, and provided me with updates a few times a month - so I did not feel like I was in the dark.

      There is no way that I could have made it through this arduous process without Silke. She made one of the worst things in my life at the time, almost effortless for me. She never became frustrated, and stayed on top of the bank and their lack of progress, forcing them to make decisions quicker than they would have. I will never use another agent again, and look forward to hiring Silke again in the future.

      Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $300K in Creekside, Sacramento, CA.
      We were looking to buy a home in the Natomas area and had a strict timetable since I was 8 months pregnant at the time. We wanted to be in the escrow process before the birth of our baby and Silke assured us she could make it happen. She was immediately available to show us properties and after two weeks we were in escrow. After escrow closed, I noticed some dry rot in the kitchen which the inspection didn't catch. Silke came over with her personal contractor who made the repair free of charge. She was easy to work with, knowledgeable, confident, and went above and beyond her duties. Recently, I contacted her to see if she had any Realtor contacts in Fresno as I was putting a rental property on the market. She didn't have any contacts, but offered to research, interview, and choose an agent for us who she felt would get the job done best. The agent she found was first class and is a reflection of her skill and abilities in the field. Silke is the best!  MoreLess

      Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $275K in Orangevale, CA.
      Silke is the best! Not only did she help us find our home 2 years ago, but she also just helped us sell it! She is there with you every step of the way and is very good at making you feel confident and comfortable throughout the whole process. One of the best things about Silke is her availability – anytime we needed anything, she was always a call, text or email away. And she responds almost instantly. She’s a true expert who lives and breathes real estate. You can just tell that she loves what she does. I highly recommend Silke to anyone who is looking to purchase a new home or sell their home! We’ve used other agents in the past – none of them have come close to comparing to Silke.  MoreLess
