Sal Silva


A native Austinite, Sal brings a unique knowledge of Austin and the surrounding communities to his relationships through Realty Austin. His involvement in the Austin community has ranged from the music industry, to co-founding two e-commerce web-based companies which amassed clients and customers in over 25 countries, solidifying partnerships with the Austin Convention and Visitors Bureau and SXSW, and finally to starting his own real estate investment portfolio in the Austin and San Antonio real estate markets. 

Sal has spent a portion of his real estate career specializing in new construction developments in and around Central and South Austin. During this time he closed over 300 homes working with a local developer and Fortune 500 company. He was awarded the Austin Home Builder’s Association Million Dollar Club Award for 15 consecutive quarters. 

This unparalleled experience has given Sal a set of skills that have proven crucial when negotiating on behalf of his buyers and sellers. From walking a seller through the steps of getting a property ready to list to welcoming people into their new homes, Sal appreciates how essential it is to help buyers and sellers with every step of their real estate transaction. Sal's exceptionally loyal clientele, personal referrals, and repeat business form the foundation of his career. These client relationships are Sal’s first priority and he strives for a caring and memorable experience achieved by open, honest communication. 

Sal and his family live in South Austin and they love being a part of their neighborhood and community. They are often found in the yard enjoying the company of neighbors, out listening to live music, or exploring the Austin parks and trails.

I cannot put into words the level of service and professionalism that Sal provided for my wife and I provided in our recent transaction. Due to a difficult and uncooperative seller and less than involved selling agent, Sal went above and beyond to work with all parties involved and ultimately get us in the home of our dreams. The sale consisted of many calls, texts, and emails where Sal ultimately fought with everything he had to get us the best deal on our home.

Furthermore, he sold our home within days of going on the market at a price point we requested. The sale of our home was easy and Sal was with us every step of the way.

I am confident that if Sal and the Realty Austin team were not involved in this transaction, my wife and I would still be looking for a home. Sal ultimately worked for us at every hour of the day and night before, during, and after the entire length of the transaction. I will not use another agent in the Austin area and will not hesitate to refer Sal to any friends, co-workers or family!

What does one look for in a Realtor? For my wife and I, we wanted someone knowledgeable of the area, quick to respond when we had a question, and able to give us insight in “new home 101” since this journey landed us our first house. Sal excelled in all these areas. Because he’s been in the industry for the better part of a decade working with builders, we felt comfortable with Sal’s knowledge on what the actual “bones” of the houses we looked at had. Whereas my eyes drifted to fancy appliances and if the faucet had that cool mid-century-modern-gold to it, Sal was concerned about the vitality of the home and how long it would serve our future family and us.

Sal was extremely communicative with us throughout the process. We also felt he was protective of us against all the moving parts in buying a home that might take advantage of a young couple who are new to real estate. For those who have been in the house-buying-game for a while, I recommend Sal for his open communication, knowledge of Austin and his history working with builders. For those who are new to the game as we were, I recommend Sal for his patience and grace. We love our new home.

Sal assisted with the sale of our family home that we lived in for eight years, and we knew he was the right person for the job! Sal was well versed in our market area and knew the price we should list to get a quick offer, which we did after being on the market for a couple of weeks. He held an open house the first weekend it was on the market and also had our home on a property tour with his brokerage and these things we believe helped result in a quick sale. Do yourself a favor if you are thinking of buying or selling and give Sal a call!

Sal helped us navigate buying our first semi-custom home in a new neighborhood. There are a lot of moving parts when building a home and Sal was amazing every step of the way. He's professional yet friendly, knowledgeable, patient and honest. He was always available and quick to respond to our myriad questions. I would not hesitate to use Sal again as our agent. He's top notch!

Sal Silva helped us when we bought our new construction home. Because of a handicap situation, we required some design changes to the plan. Builders prefer not to make design changes but Sal was helpful in working with the builder to implement the requested modifications. I recommend Sal because he will put forth every effort into achieving his client's real estate goals. I would certainly call on him for any future moves I might be considering.

Carol Jarrett

Being new to Austin and on a time crunch to buy a house, Sal immediately took the pressure off. He was very relatable and understanding throughout the process, and felt more like a friend than anything else. He genuinely cared that my wife and I get what we were looking for.

Sal helped me buy my first home. He made me feel totally comfortable to ask any and all questions and made what could have been an anxiety including process feel easy and fun. He checked in with me weekly as my house was being built and ensured I was totally clear on the closing timeline. He went above and beyond. I will definitely be reaching out to Sal for all of my real estate needs in the future.

Dara Harmon

My husband and I worked with Sal Silva to purchase our first home and we cannot say enough great things about him. Having just been married, buying our first home together was stressful. Sal definitely exceeded all of our expectations and immediately sat with us to determine what we wanted. He answered all of our questions and explained in detail every part of the process. He is knowledgeable, personable, and incredibly generous with his time every day of the week!! We truly believe that he made this experience wonderful because of his expertise. I highly recommend Sal if you are purchasing or trying to sell your home!

Daisy Saenz-Rodriguez

Sal is a tenacious salesperson yet brings a gentle and caring nature to the process. As his clients, we enjoyed a very relaxed home buying experience even under some stressful circumstances. We had a toddler and were pregnant with our second child at the time and there were potential issues surrounding the close date on our new home. Sal was so calming and reassuring in terms of coming up with interim solutions. Sal was professional, knowledgeable and honest and most certainly kept our best interests at the forefront of all negotiations. I highly recommend Sal!
