Silke responded to me within minutes of contacting her initially regarding our desire to short sale our current home and purchase a new home to better accommodate our family's needs. She scheduled a meeting shortly thereafter and within a week of meeting her and her lender, we found the perfect home. She was highly responsive and very accommodating to our schedules throughout the entire process. She took charge every step of the way and patiently answered all of our questions with a perfect balance of compassion and expertise. I always felt like she had our best interests at heart. Now we are happily residing in our new home with our very soon to be expanding family. Throughout the process, I recommended Silke to a couple of family and friends and will continue to recommend her to anyone for their real estate needs.
Update: Silke helped me successfully short sale my old home. The entire process took less than 5 months and involved two lenders. The situation involved both business and personal complications. I was dealing with the stress of a pregnancy and subsequent newborn during the process and she took it upon herself to manage everything, personally and business-wise, requiring minimal effort on my part. She negotiated with the parties so that I had zero out of pocket expenses, a much needed relief. I believe she went above and beyond her duties as a realtor to make this a successful short sale process for all parties involved. She is not only a consummate professional who will fight with you until there is nothing left to fight for, but she is a very kind person. I hope to have the opportunity to work with her again in the future.
