Silke was great to work with. She knew my chosen area very well and kept me up to date on the homes and the whole process as it moved along. And she always made time to answer my questions no matter how big or small. Plus, she also connected me with a lender as well. She was and now is my one stop, real-estate go to agent! I highly recommend her. Danke sehr viel Silke! :)

Highly recommend Silke. She went above and beyond to help me secure a great home and even helped when I had some questions on my loan. She instructed me through every step of the process and made sure I was comfortable with every decision. Silke is very aggressive when you need her to be and will make sure you are getting the best deals possible. Whenever you have a question she always answers promptly and clearly. I was very impressed with her work ethic and knowledge.... This was the second house that I have bought working with Silke and If a time comes to buy or sell again, Silke will be the person I call. Extremely impressive specialist... you can't go wrong with Silke!! Less ... More

I first met Silke a year ago when I was putting my house on the market. Due to other circumstances I had to immediatley take the listing back down. She was very patient and understanding and let me know I could come to her when things settled and she would be there to help me in any way possible. Fast forward a year and I called her up to ask if she remembered me. She did and got the ball rolling on the sale that same afternoon. My situation was complex and she didn't bat an eye. She got my asking price and we closed without a hitch. When I am ready to buy again, Silke Kirkwood is the ONLY person I will be calling. She had my back throughout the entire process and that kind of customer satisfaction is hard to find anymore. Once you find someone willing to go that extra mile for you, you make sure to keep them on your team. Less ... More

Silke has been with my family with buying our 1st home and now selling and buying our second home. Silke is very good at listening to what you want and finding what is best for your family. Silke is always available when needed and she helped us with the whole process step by step. Silke even suggested professionals to assist us in the processing of the loan and she even gave us her opinion on financial steps to help us along the way. We truly appreciate everything Silke has done!!

Silke helped us sell our house and work through issues with our buyer. She made sure we got the house ready for listing, and was able to recommend contractors for inspections and repairs. These contractors did excellent work, and I would not have known to choose them without her help. She aggressively marketed the house and we had a contract for sale in about two weeks. She helped resolve all issues surrounding appraisals and repairs. She always responded promptly to any question or concern and I never had to wait long for her to get back to me. She offers good advice and was a trusted and capable resource as we navigated through the process. I would definitely recommend her to anyone and would not hesitate to engage her services again.

I found Silke here on Zillow as she came highly recommended by everyone else. I will be adding another very positive recommendation for her as she made my first home buying experience an absolute breeze. Everything was quick and easy, she is very responsive and made everything very straight forward and simple. Would definitely work with her again.

Silke was an amazing realtor for our first home purchase. She helped us look through countless homes and quickly gained our trust through both her expertise and responsiveness. She is a consummate negotiator; our offer was accepted over another and I still felt that we got a deal. I would definitely recommend her services and I know we would use her again in a heartbeat. We would often find ourselves saying, "let's ask Silke what she thinks"! I really appreciate all the time and effort she spent with us. It truly felt that we had an expert in our corner. Less ...

She was with us every step of the way.... Her incredible knowledge, professionalism and determination was above and beyond our expectations. When we had questions via phone or e-mail (there were plenty) she responded within minutes no matter what time of day. Silke is a great negotiator. Our house was sold within a short time.

When we were ready to buy a house we decided we wanted a Buyers Agent. We had gone the traditional route of working with listing agents aka Sellers Agents before and had been very disappointed in the level of service provided by them. Silke was in every way a superior agent to work with. She looked out for our interests and made sure we got the house we wanted.

Silke helped me find and purchase the perfect home this February. She took me around to different areas of Sacramento to give me an idea of the range of options available in my price range. Then we put in an offer and with her outstanding negotiating skills were able to close on the first house that I liked. The whole process took less than a month. It is a sellers market right now and some of my friends have been shopping for houses for months with other realtors only to repeatedly be outbid. So if you are ready to buy I highly recommend contacting Silke today. If you are ready to buy your first home but don't know where to start, Silke is a great choice. She guided me through the whole process, putting me in touch with great insurance agents, title companies, contractors, etc. I am 100% satisfied. Less ... More

Her attention to detail and her willingness to go above and beyond for us was simply extraordinary. She is incredibly knowledgeable, was always quick to respond and very dedicated. We feel blessed to have worked with Silke during the process of purchasing our home. Silke, you are beyond wonderful?

Silke helped me and my husband buy our first home. Entering into this process, we really had no idea what we were doing or what anything meant. We saw some good reviews on Silke and contacted her. It was such a relief to confirm that what everyone said was right: Silke is great. She explained everything to us and made sure that we got a good deal. She gave us her candid opinion about properties we looked at without ever trying to pressure us into buying anything. Unlike a lot of other people in this business, Silke is truly interested in helping people and not just making money. I really felt comfortable with Silke and felt like we could really trust her. Not only does she know her stuff, but she is really genuine and kind. We will recommend Silke to everyone we know and we plan to use her services for our next purchase and/or sale. Less ... More

Silke was fantastic in helping us with the sale of our home. Given the unique selling environment in the Sacramento Valley, we definitely would not have reached the sale price point we obtained without her confidence and insistence that we would reach it. She was attentive to our needs as a seller and helped us with understanding the process of selling our home. She provided guidance with staging ideas in order to best show the home to reach the best possible selling price. We reviewed several other agents when preparing to put our home on the market and we are very thankful we decided to choose Silke as agent.

I can highly recommend Silke. She really knows her job well. She was working with me on the budget I had set and was honest and realistic about it (It might not have been necessarily what I wanted to hear, but it was the reality). Everything went fast and smooth. I did contact her at the beginning of February and had the keys to my house on April 5th. She not only over exceeded my time frame expectations but also found me the perfect house. Even though the house market is very difficult for buyers this year (not many houses to choose from and high competition), she made it happen for me. She found me a house exactly in the area that I was looking for. It is the cutest house ever and with her knowledge of the current real-estate market (and I mean current! It changes so fast nowadays) we were able to put in a competitive offer. My offer was accepted out of !!50!! offers. I couldn't believe it my self; with all the negative stories I heard from family and friends, how they got outbid by investors every time, I thought the same would happen to me, but it did not, even though investors bid on the house too. She just new exactly how to put in the offer. She also mad sure that the house was in good condition and had the seller fix a few expensive items. Now that I have lived at my new house for a month now, I could not be happier. If i ever need to sell this house or buy another one, I will definitively go back to her. On a side note, she also works with a real good mortgage guy, that got me the best deal too (I had quotes from 3 different places) he was the best to and recommended by her. Over all a very good experience. So if you are looking to buy or sell, give her a call it will be worth it. Less ... More

Reviewed as a buyer's agent. Silke invested a lot of time into ensuring we got the property we wanted and guided us through the offer process. Negotiating on our behalf in a sellers' market, she secured concessions from the sellers that we initially thought we could not get in a competitive market. She also linked us to a lender with great service and very competitive rates.

Silke was very professional and persistent in getting to the end goal of selling my home. Having to deal with the bank for a short sale is not an easy task but she was up for the challenge and after two buyers (one fell through) and a year of going back and forth with the bank she was able to get the deal done. I gave her 4 stars in process expertise, not because of what she did but due to another agent that had been assigned to work on my project. The other agent seemed overwhelmed and not as responsive as Silke was. When the deadline was coming near, and the other agent was not responding in a timely manner, Silke assigned my project to another agent that took the reigns and got the home sold. All in all, i am very satisfied with her services. Less ... More

Her knowledge of the area, both of properties and the local personality dynamic helped in standing firm in the pricing of my property and having it sell for approximately $20K over the amount that had been generally suggested by other realtors.

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.

Silke has super strong negotiation skills. The house I bought is in really good condition, only couple of things need repair or fix. I didn't expect the seller will do too much since the price is pretty reasonable. But with Silke's negotiation the seller agreed to do almost everything we listed. Silke is a the must agent I would like to work with to buy another property.

As most buyers know by now, short sales are often not only lengthy but also messy. Our purchase of a house in little Walnut Grove was decidedly eased by our Real Estate representative, Silke Kirkwood.

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.

My offer was accepted in May. This was the beginning of a long process. But through it all, Silke remained steadfast and calm! I was a wreck, by the way. But I this marker, she advised to stay the course. Which we did. We just closed my escrow at the beginning of the last week and i am so happy.

Silke has been handling our short sale - it has been a long, arduous process, but that was because of the bank, not because of her. She is very knowledgeable of the process and, when we were about to give up and just let the bank have the house, she assured us it would all work OK and to "hang in there". We followed her advice and the sale closed yesterday, almost without a hitch, as she said.

If you are looking for a topnotch, professional, trust worthy real estate agent, then Silke Kirkwood is the one! The process of finding and buying a home seemed quite intimidating since we were new to the area and were not familiar with neighborhoods in Sacramento. Fortunately, we were soon relieved to find Silke on our side in looking and making the right final decision. She is sharp, dedicated and hardworking who is willing to go the extra mile to get you what you want. She was by our side every step of the way during the home buying process, and went above and beyond our expectations. I highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for not only a knowledgeable real estate agent, but also a trustful friend by her side during the stressful process of buying or selling a property. We truly appreciate her hard work and dedication, and I should say that she is an asset to the RE/MAX Gold Real Estate. Two thumbs up Silke! Less ... More

I recently bought my first home in USA. It would not have been so smooth and quick without Silke, our agent. I met many agents on first day and it was Silke for me throughout after that. She is different. She was amazing in giving me what I wanted and patiently listening to my queries everytime I called her or dropped by. She also arranged for my loan through another wonderful lender. Not only I found her knowledgeable but also found her nature very warm and humble. I associate her to the famous business punchline - "Customer is GOD". ya, she will make you feel one yourself. If you want to buy a property in sacramento area, Silke is the person to meet and trust me the rest will be taken care off.

Silke is very detailed and communication was excellent. Followed up with everything in a timely fashion. Sale process went very smooth. I really liked the DocuSign feature. Also the company showed a great deal of professionalism. There were no issues that come to mind during my property selling process. She was very patient with me; it took me over a year to finally decide. Silke NEVER rushed or pushed me to make a decsion. She understood that I was not in a rush and needed to be 100% with my decsion. Aazi* Less ... More

Silke not only helped us find our perfect first home. She also did an amazing job with the sellers when our escrow did not close as quick as we would have liked. While many other relators would have let us fall out of escrow, she worked hard to keep our house ours!

My experience with Silke was one of the best. As soon as I knew I had to put my home up for sale, I contacted Silke from a friend?s referral, she went into action, she was very professional, upbeat, easy to communicate with, always returning calls or email on a timely manner. I had dealt with other realtors that promised to do things but were not accessible, didn?t explain things thoroughly; this was not the case with her. I will keep her in mind when buying another house 2 years from now. She was great throughout the process. Thanks Less ... More

Highly recommend Silke. She went above and beyond to help me secure a great home and even helped when I had some questions on my loan. She instructed me through every step of the process and made sure I was comfortable with every decision. Silke is very aggressive when you need her to be and will make sure you are getting the best deals possible. Whenever you have a question she always answers promptly and clearly. I was very impressed with her work ethic and knowledge.... This was the second house that I have bought working with Silke and If a time comes to buy or sell again, Silke will be the person I call.

Silke was great! She was by our side every step of the way during the home buying process. As first time home owners, we would have been lost without all her guidance and help. Not only did she make us comfortable during the the entire process, but she also kept things into perspective and reminded us to be realistic which is important when buying a home. Silke was also vert attentive, always amswering my calls right away anf ready to help. In the end, she pulled through and make our purchase a great and memorable experience. 30 days after reaching a deal, we were into our new home and we couldn't be happier. Less ... More

A+++ My experience with Silke has been the best out of the 3 houses I have purchased. She is not only there to sell a house but to find the right house for the right person. Silke doesn't make you feel rushed to make decisions nor does she try to push you into something you don't feel comfortable doing. If your looking for a realtor that knows the area well, is very easy to talk and get along with, and that will find you exactly what your looking for; then Silke is your best bet.

Since my husband and I are totally new at all of this real estate stuff, she was so helpful and explained things in terms that I could understand. She is very straight forward and does not try to tell you that you can afford something when you really can't. She worked in OUR price range and got us the greatest house for our money. She NEVER turned down an opportunity to show us houses or just to speak with us. She is 110 percent reliable. I would recommend using her for anyone out there. She is outstanding!!!! Less ... More

Silke is a wonderful professional. She is very good at what she does and the client comes first. She really impressed me. I bought a short sale and we ran into a couple of obstacles. That didn't stop Silke. I don't think she believes in obstacles. She took care of all of them. Even when it wasn't her job to do so. I never had a problem getting ahold of her. Not just during business hours either. Anytime. She really impressed me with "go get them" attitude. She is not one to sit and wait. She takes action. I can't say I was her best client. A few times I was out of line (I realize that now) and Silke never held it against me. Like I said, she is a proffessional. She's pleasant, smart and very good at her job. I have already referred 2 couples to her and would recomend her to anyone. Less ... More

Silke made the process of buying a house extremely smooth and efficient. She was extremely knowledgeable and professional, with particular expertise on how to handle the home buying process in this particular market. Silke ensured that the process moved as quickly as possible, while explaining every step along the way. As a first time homebuyer, she made us feel comfortable and secure in our decisions. She spent extra time explaining the different processes, something that we greatly appreciated. I would never, ever consider going with another agent; if we ever end up Silke was extremely responsive. Several times she met with us, on our own time, to give us access to the house we now own. She also responded to every email or phone call as quickly as possible; we never felt out of the loop or surprised by anything that occurred in the process. We would never consider going with another agent; if we ever end up on the market again, we will most assuredly be using Silke again. Less ... More
