Silvia represents buyers and sellers of luxury homes and condos throughout San Francisco and Marin County.
What differentiates Silvia from thousands of realtors in the Bay Area is her extensive background in quantitative and comparative market analysis, as well as her keen eye for detail and ability to leverage her high tech skills. She earned her MBA from UCLA and worked for nearly 10 years at Blue Chip companies such as Goldman Sachs, Disney and LucasFilm.
Silvia sees herself as a real estate advisor rather than a salesperson, and patiently guides her clients through each step of the transaction. Her commitment to serving her clients with the highest level of integrity and dedication has firmly established her as a trusted source for those seeking honest advice about the San Francisco and Marin County real estate market.
Prior to becoming a Real Estate agent, Silvia spent close to 10 years in the Corporate World working as a Financial Analyst / Strategic Planner, and 4 years working as a Marketing consultant to small businesses in the Interior Design Industry. The skills she acquired prior to becoming an agent have proven extremely helpful in providing her clients with top-notch service. Her strong analytical skills are key to assessing the value of the properties her clients are interested in buying and/or selling. Her comfort with numbers makes it easy to guide her clients through the various financing options available. And, her marketing experience in the interior design industry arms her with a sharp eye for detail so that her sellers' properties shine both in person and online.
Silvia is a member San Francisco’s Top Agent Network, which gives her access to dozens of off-market listings a week, and provides her buyers with a competitive edge over those who depend only on public listings. For sellers, this exclusive network allows them to test the market in a highly efficient way and allows for "quiet", off-market sales.
Silvia is originally from the Bay Area and has lived in San Francisco for over 17 years. She graduated from UC Berkeley with a degree in International Political Economy in 1990 and later earned an MBA at UCLA with a focus on marketing and finance. She is a strong believer in giving back to the community and generously supports her favorite organizations -- including Boys & Girls Clubs, International Women's Health Coalition and Room to Read. She is an avid traveller and has trekked across 47 countries and counting.
Most importantly, Silvia believes that what makes her a highly successful agent is honesty, integrity, and a lot of hard work!
