Silver Companies was founded in 1941 by Carl D. Silver, a dominant real estate innovator who transformed the business from his first real estate project, a small, ¼ acre of land in Tappahannock, VA, into a large-scale, multi-dimensional real estate empire. Carl’s passion for business was a true inspiration to everyone he worked with, especially his son Larry, who joined his father in 1972.
Larry’s strong leadership and entrepreneurial spirit took Silver Companies to another level, expanding the business from a regional developer into a national, diversified real estate investment and development firm.
Today, Silver Companies is in its third generation of leadership with Carl’s grandson and Larry’s son, Spencer Silver. Together, Larry and Spencer aim to lead the company into its next phase of expansion, while preserving its core values and ethics that brought the company to where it is today.
