What’s my Home Worth


Silvana was amazing, she went above and beyond to help me get my property on the market in no time flat. I was in and out of town, but that didn’t stop/delay the process one bit because Silvana stepped in whenever necessary to keep things moving. It was a pleasure working with her, she definitely had a game plan as to timing for showing the property and setting the offer deadline, and I couldn’t have asked for a better outcome. I would definitely recommend Silvana to anyone who is looking for an agent. She is a sweetheart!

Silvana was truly amazing during the sale of our property. We had a very difficult tenant and she dealt with her directly so we didn’t have to get involved. She is well connected to attorneys, vendors, etc. who she recommended to assist with the sale of our residence. She was there to help and support us each and every step of the way and responded to our every inquiry in a very timely manner. Silvana is extremely knowledgable with the pricing structure and is a great negotiator. Her honesty and intregrity are exceptional. Looking back on the total sales experience, I wouldn’t have wanted any other realtor. She is definitely a professional in her field and I would not hestitate to recommend her in a minute. If you hire her services, you will definitely be pleased with one of the BEST agents in San Francisco.

We’ve had the great pleasure of working with Silvana to search for and eventually purchase our very first rental property in San Francisco. When choosing an agent, we usually begin by asking friends to recommend one to us. However, this time we decided to give it a try ourselves by calling several real estate agencies. When we called Zephyr and spoke with Silvana over the phone, we knew right away she was the one we’d like to work with. The fact that we decided to go with Silvana simply after only interacting with her over the phone says a great deal about Silvana. Because of her excellent communication and interpersonal skills, professionalism, and attention to detail, we would not hesitate to work with her again and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a real estate agent.

My Mom had 3 weeks to get her house ready for the market, and hopefully sell within a Month or two. Silvana helped us in every possible way, and the property sold with our time frame. She is as sweet as can be, and extremely knowledgeable in her field. I would definitely call on her again if needed.
