Who is Windhill Anyway?

This post is part of my new Biography series. I've decided to give you a rare inside look, a commentary by those close to the subject. I'm setting a new standard for shopping local, creating a new level of intimacy between us. Our business is relationship driven and that's quite personal. We are so much more than a brand. We're people, just like you, and I want you to know who you're dealing with. I went first, now for my team...

Introducing Jeff Silva - Windhill AdvisorClick here for full profile.

Jeff is an appraiser turned real estate agent which means he's got an extra layer of expertise we all often find ourselves tapping into for questions of actual real estate values vs. how the banks see those values. He's been handy to have around.

But Jeff is that and so much more...Jeff is in his 4th year as V.P. of Doyon FRIES, Friends of the Ipswich Elementary Schools, the parent teacher organization or PTO that supports and enhances education for the Winthrop and Doyon Schools. Currently their mission is to enhance technology. Every other year a casino night is a major fundraiser. The last few times it's been held at Turner Hill. Keep your eye out for the next one coming soon in 2014. I heard it's a fun night!  Jeff is also on the board of directors for Ipswich Rotary and Ipswich Youth Lacross. He also coaches for U-13 Ipswich Lacross as well as basketball. Phew!

So you can see he's a pretty busy guy. But somehow, he has found the time to instill the power of giving back in his kids...EXACTLY the kind of guy we like having on our team and EXACTLY the kind of thing that gets me all worked up! Jeff's son Connor volunteers for the Service Dog Project. Have you heard of it? I hadn't until now. Meet Scarlet...

Scarlet is a Great Dane being trained to assist individuals who have severe balance and mobility issues and Connor helps take care of her. Great job Connor! Scarlet will eventually be paired up with a war veteran, a child or maybe someone with Multiple Sclerosis. Way to go Jeff! Teaching your kids the value of giving back makes this world a better place.

Contact Jeff with any questions about FRIES, Ipswich Lacross, Ipswich Rotary, the Service Dog Project, real estate values, etc.

Jeff is shy, that's why his photo is way down here.

But there's more ... deeply rooted here on the North Shore, real estate fanatic, licensed in real estate as a teenager and after a 26 year career still excited about this business, tenacious parent, American-dream-believer, permaculture and community supported agriculture advocate, dancer with a voracious appetite for music, avid reader of military non-fiction, banana bread baker, creative thinker, car enthusiast and ukelele player wanna-be.

People say I'm the glue, genuine, authentic, real, class act, goofy, modest, earthy... I say I'm just a plain old girl in clown shoes trying to spread joy while doing what I love.

You'll be hearing from me. I promise not to sing. But here I am...facing you, excited to share everything I know about real estate, local organic farming, community events, everything Ipswich, fun things to do with your kids, salsa dancing, healthy eating, non-fiction reads, live music venues, interesting restaurants and where to get cool and delicious things by local folks.

I'm not in sales. I hold my team together.  I'm here to make and keep connections and I believe in what I do. So talk to me, connect, consider me a resource. I want to make a difference.
