Our "Cometeers" > Keith Silva
Keith spent 10 years developing two small businesses in Pismo Beach before moving to Las Vegas to work on a remodel featured on the television show Flip That House. After a year developing properties in Las Vegas, he decided to leave the desert behind and return to the beautiful central coast. Keith loves living in San Luis Obispo County and is passionate about helping his clients achieve their own real estate dreams here.
As an entrepreneur, Keith developed a reputation for diligence, responsibility and responsiveness to his clients' needs. His real estate renovation experience has trained his eye to see the potential in any property and he guarantees integrity, hard work and 100% commitment to help you make this extremely important decision.
From the county's finest homes and condominiums to outlying ranches and estates, he will help you discover the property that matches not only your desires, but also your budget.
I needed a Realtor® to help me sell our house in a difficult market with several homes in the area on the market at the same time. I contacted Keith Silva of Comet Realty who did an excellent job for us. Keith helped us stage our home beautifully, he did an excellent job advertising, and took every opportunity to market and show the property. As a result, we sold the home very quickly at close to our asking price while other houses in the neighborhood remained unsold even at reduced prices. You will not go wrong in contracting with Keith Silva as your real estate agent.
Keith Silva represented me in the purchase of my rental property and I couldn't ask for a more "on top" agent. Naturally, he was my first choice as a property manager. He took special care in selecting good tenants and is frequently supervising the care of the gardens, which was the main feature that attracted me to the house. More importantly his management has provided me an excellent return on my investment. I have complete confidence in him and am happy to provide my recommendation of his services.

We highly recommend Keith Silva as a property manager. From the beginning he pays attention to all the myriad of details that can easily be overlooked. He puts in the time, commitment and care that truly ease our mind about owning a rental property. Keith is there every time he is needed...from screening prospective tenants to checking on the satisfaction of the renter as well as the condition of the property. Keith communicates with us frequently, which provides us with great comfort in knowing what is happening with the property. We have utmost confidence in Keith's judgment which has also eliminated much of our need to travel to the property site. He communicates well and handles the property better than we would be able to. Keith Silva of Comet Realty is the person to contact should you find a need for a professional person with care and integrity in all that he does, and with all the people that he meets.

I was so lucky to find Keith Silva at Comet Realty to manage my rental. After being transferred to San Francisco, and unable to sell my condo in San Luis Obispo, I decided to rent it to friends thinking they would take care of the place for me. It seemed to be working out well for me until they decided to move out. My cute condo that I had lived in and decorated was a mess. The carpets were stained, doors were off hinges, food was rotting in the refrigerator and they left junk everywhere. It was a nightmare. I didn't have time to deal with it but I couldn't afford to let it sit empty. I called a company that was advertising another rental in the complex. They sent me some information but didn't seem to really care about helping me out and I was concerned about their ability to rent my condo when they had a vacant one already for months. A friend referred me to Keith and now I know why. He cleaned the condo so well I could have moved back in, met contractors to give me estimates for replacing the carpets and had a new tenant moved in 30 days later. It is such a relief to not worry about my property at all and focus on my job and my new home. I'm so happy with Keith and would definitely recommend him.

I recently rented a residential property from Keith Silva and Comet Realty and it was the most professional experience I've ever had. The house was immaculate, and thorough directions were given for all of the ongoing maintenance, how to run the sprinkler timer, how the heating worked, etc. I felt very lucky to have found a place that was so well prepared for a tenant to move into (coming from a prior rental that was the opposite experience). For both property owners looking to hire a property manager or for prospective tenants looking to rent . . . I highly recommend Comet Realty and Keith Silva.

Property Management is, to say the least, a tricky operation. People are involved at many levels, Owners need to know their property will be respected and give them a return on their investment. Renters need to feel secure in the midst of all the change involved in a move. We have been involved personally on both sides of this equation. And most recently have had to make a major transition which has involved multiple moves. Keith Silva has been the most outstanding and understanding professional we have dealt with. He is efficient and opens up great lines of communication. He is respectful of the needs of all he works for, owners and renters. And most of all he prides himself in conducting business in a fashion which is fair to all concerned. We had to deal with an unexpected situation recently. Keith took the situation in hand, working with is while at the same time working with and for the owner. We all profited from his professionalism. Needless to say, owners looking to safeguard their investment or renters needing a property management company they can depend on in the midst of a transition, could not pick a more effective professional than Keith.
