Testimonials for Silvia Dukes PA, Broker Associate, CRS, CIPS, SRES
Elliott and Alison R., Ft. Lauderdale, Florida02/10/2015
Silvia couldn't have done better in helping us find and buy our new home. She was perfect in all aspects. We were treated as if we were only clients. Excellent service!
It was a pleasure doing business with Silvia, she handled our long distance sale of an undeveloped lot in a gated community. We were very impressed by the efforts she took to market the property. Silvia is very personable and knowledgeable and upfront with her clients. I highly recommend her services. Thank you Silvia! Karen Bloom-New York

I think the UK could learn a lot from the way property is bought and sold in America. The whole process went very well I think. We would certainly recommend yourself and Tropic Title Services to anyone wishing to buy property in Florida.

We chose Silvia to be our agent because of her knowledge about the area as well as her knowledge about the selling process. She appeared to be very personable, very friendly, and like i stated, knowledgeable - the type of individual that you want meeting with potential buyers.
Silvia was patient with us during our initial interview, willing to answer each and every question we asked with a clear and understandable answer. She explained her selling process, her time frames, and what would be needed from us. Her proposal was one of the best and conformed with today's use of the Internet for Property searches.
So far Silvia has delivered as promised. The home has been listed on numerous databases, and with over 20 photos clearly showing room(s) form its best possible angle. Great job so far! Thanks!
Dan and Liz Brown, Weeki Wachee, Florida11/25/2013
You are both professional and personable. Your ability to showcase our house with your photographic abilities I think attributed to the immediate interest in our home from the first day it was put on the net... 2-3 showings per day and selling in 2 weeks! We called you because you could sell internationally and had affiliations to market and sell in other counties besides Hernando County. It was a pleasure working with you.
Gary and Sheila Sutton, Brooksville, FL11/20/2013
Silvia, you were great in every area, always answering calls in timely manner and there to listen and advise. We couldn't have asked for better services. Thank you for all you did!
