About Us

Silver Companies is a real estate investment & development firm headquartered in Boca Raton, FL.
Learn more about our reputation of excellence & integrity.

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.

Our History

After serving in WWII, Carl started a used car dealership that quickly grew into a successful business with Buick and Pontiac franchises in Fredericksburg, VA. The customer satisfaction back then promised and delivered a reputation for integrity, a reputation that still persists today at Silver Companies.

Transition & Focus on Real Estate

Real estate development always played a part in the company’s entrepreneurial ventures, and Carl realized the real estate transactions he was making on the side deserved greater focus. He sold his interest in the car business to his management team in 1963 and began to shape a real estate development company. Carl involved his son in real estate negotiations at an early age, which led to Larry’s successful leadership within the company beginning in 1972.

Diversified Expansion

As the company continued to develop properties, it expanded from Fredericksburg, Virginia into a national, diversified real estate investment and development firm. he innovative, entrepreneurial spirit of Silver Companies attracted a talented multi-disciplinary team of experts. This wealth of knowledge and experience gave us the ability to expand and diversify into unique business opportunities with new products in different fields across a variety of markets.
