Real Estate Agent

Big Bear is my home. I feel very lucky and blessed to live in such a beautiful area. I am a native Californian and grew up in Palos Verdes. I used to visit Big Bear to go skiing, enjoy nature, the mountains, the lake and the fresh air.

I went to college and received my Associates degree at a local community college and went on to receive my Bachelors’ degree from California State University Northridge. I then obtained my Real estate license. I moved to Big Bear in 1997 and have been a Realtor for 15 years. My daughter was brought up in Big Bear.

We became part of the community. I was President of the Big Bear Association of Realtors in 2015 and decided to further my education and I recently obtained a real estate Brokers license in 2018.I have joined Wheeler Steffen Sotheby’s International Realty and bring with me experience, knowledge, and achievements and passion for real estate. I look forward to the future and providing great customer service.

These are a few testimonials from my past clients:

“Sylvia was very thorough and detailed and kept us informed all through the process. She was always available for any questions we had. We would definitely recommend her for any real estate needs.”

“My wife, Joyce and I want to thank you for all the help and support you provided us in the sale of our Big Bear cabin. We are grateful to you for your exceptional assistance in our selling our property. We easily sold our vacation home for a good price. Your local knowledge of the real estate property helped us price our cabin correctly. Sylvia is very familiar with all areas and price ranges in the Big Bear Valley. She communicated with us regularly and met every request. She was very clear and thorough in her communications and kept us up to date throughout the process. She provided sound advice as to how to proceed, or handle issues as they came up. She was exceptionally prompt on returning calls or emails. I would highly recommend working with her to all our friends and family in the future. “

“Sylvia Shalmi was very attentive and thorough. She did her job in a professional and friendly manner. She was a pleasure to work with.”

“When we first spoke to Sylvia Shalmi we were impressed with her professional enthusiasm. Our cabin had been on the market for 6 months with no results. She listened to our concerns and gave us hope that we would be able to sell. Her professional demeanor and excellent knowledge of the real estate market in Big Bear, combined with a warm and caring heart did the job for us. We listed on February 11th, had an offer on February 16th and closed escrow on March 30th. If you want a professional Realtor who get results, you better pick up the phone and call Sylvia Shalmi.

'A big Thank you to Sylvia…We sold our 30+year cabin in 30 days. She walked us through every step. She was always so patient and understanding during the process. Her professionalism is the Best. We will recommend her to friends. Thank you again.”
