She credits her success to her focus on continuous improvement, negotiating skills, and commitment to provide her buyers and sellers with the information and tools they need to make sound decisions.
To match her services to the needs of her clients, Silverman has continually worked to further her education. She completed an advanced series of coursework to earn the following designations: Certified Distressed Property Expert (CDPE), Accredited Staging Professional which adds dollars onto the sale of your home and helps to sell your home quicker as a free service to her clients (ASP), Accredited Real Estate Owned (AREO), REO Default Certified Professional (RDCPro), and Certified HAFA Specialist, (CHS) which allows her to provide her clients with valuable guidance about the Home Affordable Foreclosure Alternatives (HAFA) program, and Senior Real Estate Specialist (SRES). Alyson has been selected to be one of 10 agents nationally on the 2013 Force Advisory Board to show her dedication to her Short Sale and Foreclosure clients.
As an active member in the Real Estate community, Alyson has served several years on the Grievance and Pro Standards committees for the Southland Regional Association of Realtors, and in 2017 she served on their YPN committee. At her own Keller Williams Office, she was on 2017 ALC (Associate Leadership Council). She is also charter member of the Default Industry Leaders, serving two years on their Board of Directors and this is her second year serving on the Default Committee for AREAA. She also devoted several years to her own HOA board and participates in many charity events annually. She recently became a member of the exclusive Keller Williams Sports & Entertainment group.
Before she entered the real estate business, Silverman leveraged the knowledge she acquired from earning her degree in Business Administration and Marketing at California State University Northridge (CSUN) to work for Amgen in Newbury Park.
When asked about why she chose to pursue a career in real estate, she commented, “A friend of mine saw a spark in my eye whenever he mentioned real estate and encouraged me to get my license. Real estate is truly my passion. I love helping people build wealth, avoid foreclosure, or simply find their piece of the American dream.”
State of The Market Los Angeles/Ventura Counties
“The market has shifted/corrected a bit in Los Angeles and Ventura counties. Interest rate increases have knocked a lot of buyers out and homes are staying on the market longer for a few reasons,” said Silverman.
“While I wish I had a crystal ball, I do not. I do believe that the market will normalize. Prices might temporarily decrease due to a lack of buyers (lack of demand); however, in the long-term prices will always go up and buying is always better than renting and paying someone else’s mortgage.”
