Silvia was our agent for a second time recently and she did an excellent job navigating us through our condo sale. We largely deferred to her expertise on questions that came up and she delivered each time which resulted in an above asking sales price. We couldn't have asked for better service. Jeff & Stephanie
We listed our home in Oregon from Arizona but had concerns about snow blocking the driveway, leaves in the courtyard and the home being too cold. Silvia shoveled snow, cleaned the courtyard and turned up the heat before each showing and back down after the clients left. Then, she sold our million dollar plus home in three days! Second time she's represented us .Consummate professional. Alan & Michelle
I can't recommend Silvia enough! She is so incredibly knowledgeable and stays in touch throughout the entire process. She clearly knows the Bend market well and has a unique ability to guide a non real estate expert through the process. Beyond her great communication skills and her ability to manage all of the details, she is incredibly kind and patient. I moved out of Bend about 5 years ago and sold my home without ever having met Silvia in person, however, I feel like I've known her for years! If you choose Silvia, you will be getting an absolute expert and someone who is very easy to work with throughout a very stressful time in anyones life. Tamara M.
I have bought and sold over 15 homes in the last 40 years and worked with many real estate agents, and Silvia is by far the most impressive I have worked with. Fabulous communication skills, follow-up and knowledge of business. Silvia sold 3 of my homes in just over a month in Bend and everything was easy and smooth. Silvia is simply the best! I highly recommend Silvia to be anyones real estate professional. Tim F.
Silvia is a consummate professional and caring individual. She took care of the details and guided me through “next steps” counseling me along the way. She is the real estate professional person you always hope to work with; she knows what to do and has the experience but is never pretentious. Jeff R.
Silvia was wonderful to work with, we recommend her highly! All our questions were answered in a timely manner and she was great about keeping us up to date with where we were in the purchase process. We felt that Silvia truly cared about us and helping us purchase the perfect investment house for our circumstances. We feel as though we made a friend and will most certainly work with Silvia again. Rick & Jan P.
Silvia was so great to work with. She was knowledgeable, very responsive and ensured all of our needs were met. I would highly recommended her to anyone in need of real estate services. She even provided local resources to make us comfortable in our new neighborhood. I never knew buying a house could be so easy! Cori M.
We have been working with Silvia for a long time. Most recently she helped us sell our home about as fast as we could have hoped for and at a price we were very happy with. As soon as we were ready to go on the market, Silvia jumped into action and we were on the market in a matter of days. Her marketing materials were some of the best we've ever seen. We had a full price offer within hours of the open house after only two days on the market. Previously she helped us with home purchases. She worked tirelessly and had endless patience while helping us find just the right home. She always made herself available when time was of the essence, including over holidays and her vacations. We would not hesitate to recommend her to others or use her services in the future. Kari A
We chose Sylvia because we met her and were impressed when she helped our daughter find a new home and sell her old one. We were out of town buyers and every time we came to town she was so available for our schedule. She was patient while we looked at so many homes until we found the perfect one. Then she helped us breeze through the purchase process and gave suggestions that would make our move easier. She is a dream. Peter N.
Silvia is the complete professional - she is responsive, diligent and focused. She listened to what we wanted, understood our needs and never pushed us towards anything that wasn't exactly right for us. She demonstrated thorough knowledge and understanding of the of the process, and she guided us with great advice from beginning to end. I cannot recommend her highly enough!
Silvia is a top-notch realtor who knows the Central Oregon real estate market. She is very professional and her attention to details are amazing. She communicates well, and will always keep you updated throughout the whole buying/selling process. She sold my home and represented me on the purchase of another home, both transactions went very smoothly. Whether you are buying or selling your home you can put your trust in her, she will get the job done! Greg K.
Silvia Giffin-Knight first came to us about three years ago, wondering if we were interested in selling our home. We were not at that time, but we said we might be interested in a few years. We kept in contact, and called her with questions regarding selling, which she answered faithfully. When we finally did decide to ell, she came right over and began the process. She arranged for videos, photos, and kept us fully informed as to what was going on. She answered all of our questions promptly. She respected our safety regarding COVID which was really beginning to spread into the area. When the house went on the market it sold the next day, and Silvia was on it constantly keeping us informed and doing all the arranging necessary for closing which went smoothly. She has been answering our questions ever since also. We would highly recommend her as a Realtor to anyone who asked. Silvia couldn't have been more helpful. Vern & Jessie C.
For a couple of years we had watched houses in Bend come and go very quickly We needed an agent who got us out in front of other buyers. That is exactly what Silvia accomplished for us. Through her back channels she found just what we had been looking for: a single level, well located, perfectly priced home in a mature neighborhood. We bought the property before it made it to the MLS. The transaction was easy. Silvia deftly guided the whole process to completion within the perfect time frame. Her smart, pleasant, non assertive style makes it easy to recommend Silvia. June F.
Silvia is the best real estate we have had in over 35 years and several moves across the country. She has excellent advice for getting your house ready to sell and a superb marketing strategy to get top dollar. When you are buying a house, Silvia listens carefully to your requirements and works to find the right match. For both selling and buying, Silvia is always a step ahead and answering questions before we can ask them. Silvia goes above and beyond to take care of her clients. She does her homework and keeps the client as her number one priority. We could not ask for a more professional agent. Bret & Jennith H.
Silvia Giffin-Knight has provided excellent real estate services for myself and my family over the past few years. I would highly recommend Silvia. She really took the time to understand my needs and then went the extra mile to find something that fit my needs. She is a very hard working professional business women. I really appreciate her attention to detail and professionalism. Amy H
Silvia helped us with a short sale on one property, then as soon as we were on our feet, helped us find our dream home! She was in tune with our needs, and delivered more than we expected!! A true professional, other realtors could learn from her. David M
Silvia is the absolute best in her field! She started to help us with the home buying process before we had even moved. She was amazingly patient with us, especially for the length of time we were looking. We had very specific things we were looking for which made finding a home difficult. Silvia helped us get creative, she looked far and wide and used all her resources to find us a wonderful home in the perfect spot in a difficult market. We also had limited funds and she was able to help us stay in budget as well as help us find an amazing lender. Silvia is professional, fun, and walking away from the whole process we feel like we gained a friend. Silvia goes above and beyond and I would highly recommend her to anyone needing a fantastic realtor. Daylene & Cody
Terrific understanding of local markets and expertise in closing a deal. Kept us informed every step of the way. Highly recommend Silvia Giffin-Knight! Keep up the good work! Alex C.
Silvia helped us find the perfect second home in Bend. We were very selective on the type of home we were looking for and she patiently worked with us until the right opportunity arose. Silvia is very knowledgeable and great to work with. We highly recommend her to anyone looking for a home in Central Oregon. Frank & Kjersti W.
"Silvia was great from the first day to the last. In fact, when we first came to Silvia, she was in the process of leaving for vacation. Even so, Silvia found time to work with us in putting together an offer. From then on, Silvia was always engaged, anticipating issues and keeping us informed of progress." Mike S.
We connected with Silvia by luck on the internet. She proved herself to be extremely responsive to our needs (and it was not a big value property we sought). Silvia is a top notch professional that it is our pleasure to highly recommend. Ron & Colette B.M.
"Silvia Giffin-Knight made our search for the right home a great and positive experience; we were very happy to work with her and we warmly recommend her; she is very professional in every phase of the house buying process and it was never stressful at all for us. It was a pleasure to work with Silvia; Silvia got recommended to us by a gentleman whom Silvia had just found a house, we didn't know him, we ran into him when driving around and looking at houses, he was so thrilled by Silvia's work as an agent that we knew we had to call her and ask her to find a house for us as well. It was the best choice." Brigitte & Manfred W.
I have worked with Silvia on multiple transactions and she always seems to be a true professional. She maintains an open line of communication and makes sure timelines are met and any potential red-flags are taken care of in advance. Her knowledge of the market, along with understanding the entire process that goes along with buying or selling a home, sets her apart from the vast majority. You can be certain Silvia is committed to making sure the transaction is a success! Steve M.
Silvia, You have been absolutely wonderful…our move from Texas wasn't easy, but you helped us every step of the way: from finding a rental, to doctors, preschools, and finally our new home. You honestly answered each of our questions, and it really made our family feel comfortable with our decisions. We also appreciated how quickly you communicated with us. The home we purchased had multiple offers the first day of being on the market - we were one of them, and now we're unpacking in our beautiful home! We are so happy to have found you…in the seven months we've worked with you, we all felt like you were more of a friend than just a realtor. Our four year old even wants to name our next pet after you! We can't thank you enough. Jeremy & Kristin T
I am writing in regard to the outstanding level of service that I received whilst selling my home in Bend, Oregon. Silvia Giffin-Knight listed my home and literally had an offer on it in days. Her marketing gets results! She maintained constant contact with me during the entire process and even helped me pack up my kitchen, as I had no one available to assist me! The transaction went smoothly from beginning to end and Silvia quickly resolved any issues that arose. She was knowledgeable, professional at all times and I highly recommend her when it comes to getting your property sold. Albert C., M.D
During our purchase of a lot in Tetherow, Bend, I had spoken briefly with Silvia over the phone while finalizing the transaction. I was impressed with her efficiency and responsiveness then. Nine months later, my husband suffered a stroke, and we needed to make very quick life changes. I called Silvia, and I will forever be grateful for her support. She was an absolute God-send. She sold our house within a very few weeks. She worked tirelessly to that end. No detail was too small. She was incredibly sensitive to our needs and was vigilant in representing our best interest. We are EXTREMELY happy with the outcome. I cannot recommend Silvia strongly enough. She is smart, savvy, and a professional of the highest order. What's more, she's a truly good human being! David & Cynthia S
WOW, I've bought and sold homes all over the country and have never had such a good experience! Silvia is nothing short of amazing. We received her name from a local mortgage broker. Best advice I have received. She sold our home quickly and helped us find a new home. If you want the best most knowledgeable agent look no further… just call Silvia (oh and she ALWAYS answers the phone). Larry & Theresa K.
We had the pleasure of working with Silvia this past summer (2015). She became our agent the end of May. Silvia did an excellent job presenting and marketing our home. The brochure and book she made of our home was outstanding. She always kept in contact as to what was happening with the house and was readily available to answer any questions or concerns. We would highly recommend Silvia. Richard & Deb M
Silvia is the consummate professional. She worked smartly and diligently to sell our home and find another we would love. We would recommend her to anyone who is wanting to be treated as if you were her only client. She's the best. David & Catherine C
Silvia Giffin-Knight is an extremely personable, reliable, knowledgeable, go get 'em kinda agent. You want your house sold with the least amount of headache, she is your woman. She sold our house in days and made the whole transaction seem like a walk in the park. Thank you Silvia! Tawnya M.
During the course of selling two homes and buying the land to build another, we worked with three real estate agents last year. Without question Silvia was the most professional agent of the three. She was also the most personable of the three!! We felt comfortable with Silvia and maybe took advantage of her good will, because she became our main source of information on our move to Bend. She has an unsurpassed wealth of knowledge for the area and the builders and subs in the area, which is what we needed. We should recommend her to anyone who wants an agent who follows up on every detail and is truly concerned for her client. Tim & Gloria H.
Silvia is a great realtor who is attentive to a buyer's wants and needs from beginning to end. She knows her stuff and is very personable. She spent months helping us find the perfect home and negotiating a good price for us. Bill and Jill T.
We have decided to move out to Bend, Oregon from south Carolina to be closer to our daughter, her husband andour new grandbaby. Our daughter met Silvia at an open house and one thing led to another in our home search. We are now the proud owners of a nice house in Bend with a garage apartment on the property for my 86 year old mother who will be coming with us. Silvia has been so very helpful with every aspect of buying this home. She is very easy to work with and is always available via email or phone. It has been a very stress free experience of buying a home 3000 miles away with Silvia in our corner. We can't wait to see her face to face when we arrive in Bend and thank her for a job well done. I think we have made our first 'friend' in our new hometown of Bend. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone seeking real estate needs. Even though our house has closed, Silvia continues to be a great help in steering us in the right direction for our other needs in Bend. Harold and Rhonda W.
Silvia was wonderful from the start when we were just looking at vacation homes. Once we found the place we wanted to put an offer on, Silvia was there to guide us all the way. She was always available on the phone or via email with no wait. Silvia made the whole process so easy! We can't recommend her enough! Jim and MaryJo E.
Silvia was an amazing resource for us while selling our house and buying a new property. I would highly recommend Silvia to anyone looking to buy or sell a house! George and Bobbye D
Silvia provided excellent service on my home sale. She keep me well informed and actively updated. I can offer my utmost recommendation for her professional efforts. Douglas H.
Silvia was recommended to us by some good friends of ours. Therefore our expectations were high to start with. In summary she did a great job in finding and helping us close on our house. With her support we found our new home in Bend in just couple of months and were able to close quickly and easily. As we worked with Silvia we had to do it for the most part as a remote operation as we did not live in Bend. On multiple occasions she went above and beyond to cover for us when activities need our physical presence. I plan to recommend her services to my friends who are planning to buy in Bend, OR. Lasith P.
We have sold more than twenty homes in Bend and have used five different realtors. Silvia Giffin-Knight provided services for us that we never knew existed. Her marketing skills are exceptional; she is way past others in her beautiful displays and technology skills. She ALWAYS answered her phone or called right back and took care of every question immediately. She has so much integrity in every situation and had the utmost respect for everyone involved in our sale. She even paid for a repair on the inspection that I was hesitant to cover because she thought it was the right move. She will continue to be our real estate agent and friend. You won't find anyone better in Bend. Jerry & Linda H.
Silvia is simply top of the line. She brings an unparalleled interest and ability to efficiently match buyer with desired property, with excellence in customer service and follow-thru. We bought two properties through Silvia and could not have chosen a more service and performance oriented, consummate professional. Much of the paperwork was done long distance and she was always available and responded quickly to all questions. The process was made smoothly and in a timely fashion. There are many good realtor choices, but Silvia stands out for the genuine care, effort and success she delivers to her customer. R&C M
Every time we need Silvia for prices, buying or selling, she is always responsive and accurate. Wouldn't use any one else for real estate in Central Oregon. She took all the hassle out of the real estate deal, and made it a great experience for me and my wife. She found exactly what we asked her to find, at a below market value, instead of trying to fit us into a house we didn't want for more money than we wanted to spend. She truly enjoys working with people and making their dreams come true!!! David M.

Silvia has been great to work with during the purchase and selling of our home. She was always very kind, patient, and available to both answer questions and show properties. I can't imagine working anyone else should I buy or sell another home. Peter A.
We closed escrow today with Silvia as our buyers agent. This woman is a Dynamo! She worked 24/7 on our behalf - hard & smart. She found us a home that was exactly what we were looking for: neighborhood, style, size & price. She communicates in a timely manner & goes above & beyond any other realtor I have ever worked with. She is a pleasure to work with. My recommendation: meet with her, you will be impressed by her performance. Silvia, you are the best. Sidney F.
Silvia is the best realtor I have ever worked with! I cannot say enough good things about my experience with her. My family was moving to the area from out of state and found Silvia through her reviews on Zillow. You never know what you are going to get when hiring a realtor, but Silvia was absolutely wonderful. She is extremely patient (we saw about 15 houses in one day), very honest, and down-to-earth. Silvia helped us through the entire buying process, including handling all the logistics of dealing with contractors and painters at the new house before we moved in. She is a truly dedicated realtor and we will definitely be using her for all our family's future home purchases! Jennifer & Austin A.
We had interviewed several realtors before selecting Silvia. We were not disappointed in our choice! Silvia was very professional and always available to talk through-out the entire process. She knows how to market and worked hard to sell our home. Her experience and expertise was a great help in working through the entire sales process. I can honestly say that we would highly recommend her and wouldn't hesitate to use her again in the future. Shawn & Jean E.
Silvia has our listing. We are extremely pleased with her marketing across the country and with her continuing personal attention to us and our home. We would highly recommend her to anyone trying to sell a home. Dick and Dianne K
Not only did we have Silvia LIST our home; she helped us PURCHASE our next home!! She was constantly in contact with us every step of the way. The advertising for the sale of our home was TOP NOTCH. Any question was answered PROMPTLY and it was an absolute PLEASURE to work with Silvia. Marlene and John P
We found Silvia here on Zillow and had the pleasure of working with her this past summer to buy a second home in Bend. As out of town buyers, we relied heavily on Silvia to assess properties and provide us with an honest opinion that reflected our needs. She exceeded our expectations in being always available through email and phone, visiting and evaluating properties for us, and in negotiating on our behalf. She even paid for some repairs that the seller did not want to address. She was always professional and a wonderful person to work with; and we highly recommend her. R & R W.
Our main residence is in Las Vegas, but my family was interested in finding a summer home in the Bend area. We met Sylvia through her website and met her acquaintance initially only by telephone. Sylvia listened to what we wanted in our Bend home, and after several months of diligently looking at the homes on the market, she was able to find exactly the home we were looking for. We flew up from Las Vegas, and after seeing the home, closed on it the same weekend. All our expectations were exceeded! She is a terrific realtor, a wonderful person, and made our home buying experience the best I have ever had. Thomas M
Silvia is a true professional. As a Mortgage Lender at Evergreen Home Loans I have worked with Silvia and her Buyers on numerous transactions. Her attention to detail and the professional expertise is rarely equaled, all this while building strong long lasting relationships with her Clients. Kevin P
These are the words that come to my mind when I think of Silvia Giffin-Knight of Cascade Sotheby's: Genuine, Confident, and Diligent. I would highly recommend her to anyone that is needing a real estate agent that will listen to your real estate needs and work hard to help you reach them. Michael C
