Alfonso began his 35-year career in property management on-site before rising quickly into leadership roles that have helped shape Silva-Markham’s unique property management principles. His detailed knowledge of LIHTC (Section 42 tax credit), market rate/conventional, HUD and mixed-use properties allow him to claim more than 20 successful tax credits and conventional lease-ups on new construction and rehab conversion communities. Mr. Silva is committed to quality service, implementing the use of the most advanced, efficient communications, monitoring systems and equipment into the Silva-Markham business model.

Mr. Silva leverages his knowledge of Colorado, California, and Texas markets to also lend a hand with corporate marketing initiatives, lender and investor relationships, and most importantly, making sense of dynamic economic trends and appropriate real estate strategies.
