Debbie did an excellent job selling our home.  My wife and I have had several real estate purchases and sales, but this was the best by far.  Her analysis of the market and the realistic value of our home was spot on.  Her assistance during the sale process sas unsurpassed and she kept in excellent communication with us throughout.  Because of Debbie's hard and thorough work, we received top dollar for our home.   Gary A.

From beginning to end, Debbie da Silva, of BERKSHIRE HATHAWAY home services in St. Augustine Beach, FL, made the buying of our new home and selling of our previous property completely worry free and actually fun.  She was personally involved in every aspect of the process from developing a strategy, understanding our needs, helping with sound and creative solutions for problems we encountered.  Debbie has the problem solver mindset.


She has a high degree of self-motivation; she is honest and has impeccable integrity with energy and tenacity.  Our dealings with other agents and potential buyers / sellers required her aggressive marketing techniques for us to be successful.  She was the master of working smart; she knew how to put in the right amount of time and money and did whatever was necessary to close our deal.  She has a real interest in houses / architecture, which we think, gives her an advantage over other agents and brokers.


Debbie understands the local and surrounding housing markets.  She was a very quick study in the area we were interested in moving to because of her network of connections not only in terms of agents, but also appraisers, brokers, home inspectors, mortgage loan officers and potential buyers and sellers.


Probably the most attractive trait about our experience with Debbie was her engaging personality coupled with passion for the industry, attention to detail and her knowledge of the latest information in her professional field. Her professional development and continuing education allows her to stay at the forefront of the real estate business.  She teaches real estate at a local college, which speaks volumes to her expertise and knowledge of the industry.


We have bought seven and sold six homes.  If we had to do it again we would call her immediately.  We always recommend Debbie to anyone who is even considering buying or selling real estate.  We have become friends and still stay in touch.  A wonderful person and joy to work with, so if you want the best there is in real estate, in our humble opinion, you should go with Ms. Debbie da Silva.

"As a new Jacksonville buyer, with no agent referrals, my first local agent was assigned to me by my bank. After he told me the one property I was interested in was off the market, I decided to call the listing agent myself, out of frustration. Debbie da Silva was that listing agent, who confirmed the property was under contract, but assured me I would be her first call if that contract fell through. During our conversation, I decided she was the type of real estate professional I wanted to work with for my property search, so I made the agent switch. Two weeks later, I received that first phone call from Debbie saying the property contract fell through due to a buyer financing issue. She met me at the property that same evening, and we had a signed contract the next morning. The rest of the process was smooth sailing due to Debbie's tenacity. She handled the dual agency perfectly, and despite managing multiple clients, she made me feel as if my deal was the only deal she was focused on....if you are looking for an honest, smart, professional agent to work for you, hire Debbie! Thanks again Debbie!!"

You were a true professional through the entire process.  Being new to Jacksonville, you were patient as we explored different neighborhoods until finding just the right location. We feel very lucky to have had you as our realtor!

Thanks again for everything!

Debbie da Silva ha sido la persona ideal para la compra-venta que hemos realizado en St. Augustine, nos ha solucionado todos los problemas relacionados con la operación, como pueden ser los proveedores de gas, electricidad, piscina, seguros, asociación de propietarios, etc.. que a nosotros nos habría resultado muy difícil desde Barcelona y por el idioma, por todo ello le estamos muy agradecidos.
Todo se realizó con rapidez y eficacia y salió tal como Debbie nos dijo.
Debbie habla un perfecto castellano y sus modos son impecables, es enormemente atenta y consigue que todo salga bien.
Recomendaría a Debbie con total confianza a cualquier persona que quiera comprar o vender una casa en St. Augustine.

Moving to a new town is always stressful.  Selecting the right neighborhood for you and your family and then the right house in the right neighborhood, schools, shopping, lifestyle, amenities, new friends all adding up to one of life’s major stressful events. Most of us have all been there.  Debbie da Silva was the ultimate real estate pro during my very recent move to St. Augustine.  The transaction and negotiations were a little more complicated on this move than past moves in that I was working in Europe at the time, and the seller was on the west coast so we were separated by 10 time zones.  My home purchase almost fell through on a couple of occasions due to communication and distance problems both on my part and the seller’s part.  Debbie being the true professional always brought a sense of calm to the negotiation.  This calm coupled with her re-assuring “always available” work ethic kept the deal together and moving forward which closed right on time.  I owe her a great deal in making my new home a reality.  One final and very important point to this recommendation is that Debbie was the seller’s listing agent! Thank you Debbie da Silva.

I apologize for the delay, but thank you for all you did in representing us in selling our house in FL. There were several projects that needed to be completed prior to the house going on the market and I wanted to thank you for managing through these projects especially since we are now living in CA. Once the house was on the market I think the combination of the right price along with the photos that accompanied the online marketing provided a steady flow of showings, which resulted in 2 offers in under 60 days. Finally as you know the negotiation process was less than straight forward, but we were able to refer to the language in the contract and hold our ground to get the originally negotiated price. Overall our experience working with you was very positive as we found your knowledge and responsiveness to be exactly what we were looking for in a realtor.


Thanks again,



"Dear Debbie

I want to thank you for taking care of business in the sale of our condo at the Surf Club. You are a true and deserving professional in what you do. We were wanting to be very discreet in the selection of a realtor from the very beginning, we spoke to a few and mutually decided you would be our best bet. How right we were!!. From the first time we met till the day we closed to the hour you were right there watching over every stitch of detail till the moment we closed. What more can anyone ask? My hats off to you not only as a business professional but as a genuine, decent human being. Thank you, thank You!! and the best to you and your family.

C. and G. Bradham"
