Silver Builders' mission is to provide the highest quality real estate services to both tenants and owners. Our vision is to be world class in the eyes of our tenants by creating well-designed, effective and prosperous business environments. We will provide our tenants with the best reasons to conduct their business within our properties. We will help our clients and our partners achieve their goals and we will use our best efforts to attain the highest financial returns.
Silver Builders will accomplish our goals by preparing budgets, developing marketing plans and making absolutely certain that the up-keep of all our properties are maintained at the highest levels. We will constantly evaluate each and every property to determine if they are performing satifactorily, and if not, we will implement concepts and ideas to make them more profitable. At Silver Builders, we provide the highest level of service...because we take the time to do things right. We have committed ourselves and all of our resources to being at the forefront of real estate investments for the 21st Century.
Over the past fifteen years, Silver Builders Real Estate Corp. has grown to become a highly respected company specializing in commercial real estate management. As managing agents, we have been successful in achieving extremely high occupancy rates at virtually all of our properties. We are always attempting to balance the value of quality workmanship, coupled with a sound understanding of local labor and material costs, while at the same time, developing realistic operational and capital improvement budgets. We have accomplished this by maintaining close personal relationships with both our tenants, as well as our owners, as we closely monitor the monthly performance of each individual property.
