SilverTree Realty gives leverage and power back to the Tenant through education, negotiation, and creativity.

DEVELOPMENT - We practice a multifaceted business process, encompassing activities that range from the renovation and re-lease of existing buildings to the site selection, purchase of raw land, and the sale of developed land or parcels.

PROPERTY MANAGEMENT - The operation, control, and oversight of real estate as used in its most broad terms. Management indicates a need to be cared for, monitored and accountability given for its use.

RESIDENTIAL REAL ESTATE - Regardless of whether you are looking to rent, buy, or sell, The Perry Team (Cheri Perry & Lyndsay Burchfield) would enjoy the opportunity to assist you during these exciting milestones.
