Meet The Team Behind SILT Real Estate and Investments, LLC

We’re SILT Real Estate and Investments, LLC

Hi! I’m Brian Wittman

I’m the CEO and Owner of SILT Real Estate and Investments, LLC!

A professional cash home buyer in Illinois

I’m a firefighter/paramedic who has always gotten enjoyment from helping others. As a real estate agent for over 8 years and investor, I went into homes that weren’t ideal for listing on the MLS but had inherent value. Though these people didn’t know what to do to fix their home and couldn’t take the time to do it, I figured why not help those in real need with their home when it’s not really ready to list on the market? So began my journey into cash purchases and helping those in need, sell their house fast.

After seeing home sellers who didn’t want to do the extra work to sell their property for the real market price but wanted to close as quickly as possible, I knew they needed a new solution. My aim when creating SILT Real Estate and Investments, LLC, was to start a company that believes in honesty, transparency, a full explanation, complete help from start to finish, and an overall want to help others that would be fair and still make them feel like the solution was a win for all parties involved.

Our mission when selling a renovated property or helping you get out of a property that is not market-ready is to be able to provide a home you are proud of so that you can feel safe, happy, and part of a community. We provide fast, fair offers for your house so that you can move on and see the next homeowner have a fresh start with the house.

But did Chicago Illinois NEED another cash home buyer or investor?

When I decided to start SILT Real Estate and Investments, LLC, I saw extremes of lowball cash offers and then those same houses being sold for over-market value. This was happening from a larger, regional investor company. I knew that something had to be done and came to a realization that there is a middle ground where most homeowners can and should get a fair price and be able to sell their houses fast. Even though some may need to sell it fast, they shouldn’t be taken advantage of. And then there are others who have loads of potential but don’t really want to get it ready to show to so many people. That’s when I decided I wanted to help home sellers in the middle ground.

That’s why with us you get a fair cash offer and an explanation of why the offer sits around what it is. You also get transparency of the market and the process we use and can have anything explained that you question or just wonder about. We make sure that YOU and your comfort with the process are always taken into consideration and are what’s most important to us.

Why Choose Us?!

We’re not like every “Cash For Houses” company out there, that gives you pennies on the dollar and hopes you sell to us so we make a profit. We believe in character, honesty, and compassion. We believe in solving your problem and making (what can be) a difficult process as easy as possible. At the end of the day, we believe there is no one size fits all solution and aim to help you as best as we can, even if it means we aren’t the ones buying your house.

A Few Things We Aim For With Every House Sale

  • Transparency – We explain how we came to the offer and why we feel confident with what it is.
  • Don’t renegotiate after agreement – We believe that time is our most valuable asset so we aim not to waste yours with a renegotiation.
  • Close on your schedule – You pick the date and we close at a local title company or attorney’s office. We always aim to be flexible to make it easy for you to close when you need to.
  • Help you fully – We aim to make sure all of your worries and issues are fully addressed before you have to worry about completing the sale of your house.
