Together we formed the DaSilva Group, helping thousands of clients like you make one of the most important buying decisions of your life. One where you can realize your dream of spending time in a destination of your choosing, a place where you can relax and rejuvenate your spirit or spend time with family and friends and celebrate life and success.

Why are we better?

Many websites showcasing second or vacation homes are just a collection of various listings. While you can certainly search for properties, they are limited to only the attributes of the property. All too often, that minimal amount of information is outdated and the property is already off the market.

Local expertise

Our real estate partners live and work in the communities they serve and the communities you seek. Our partners are fully vetted, personally by us, and committed to providing you with expert advice and knowledge in a way only someone who lives there can provide.

When you link to the local broker’s site, not only do you receive accurate information, you gain valuable insight and local flavor of the community you are exploring. You can better understand the nuances of each neighborhood that make up that community. When you make your final decision, you are confident that you have made the best choice possible for you and your family.

Be informed

On this website, you’ll find articles and local property news from our many local experts providing updates on the local communities and tips on new developments or homes that will soon hit the market. Currently, our professional network stretches from South Texas all the way to the Canadian border, traversing both sides of the Rocky Mountains. We will be continually opening additional geographic regions including Florida and the entire East Coast. Register with SHS and receive updates as new locations and property listings are added.
