Check out our staff’s profiles below and get to know who you’ll be working with.


Founder and President of Silverwood, Kendall comes with invaluable experience as a 3rd generation builder. With 30 years as a custom framing contractor, Kendall developed the work ethic and attention to the details that are shared by the whole Silverwood team. Kendall has lived and continues to treasure the dream of being known as one of Traverse City’s Premiere Custom Home Builders. He is proud of the relationships that he has built with suppliers and sub-contractors over the years and recognizes that without their loyalty and support the road to success would have been much harder. Kendall and his wife Kathy are one of the founding families of Baypointe/Kensington church in Traverse City. Kendall was also on the original Board of Directors and was instrumental in starting the local chapter of Habitat for Humanity. When Kendall is not building other people’s dreams, he enjoys golfing, boating on West Bay, and spending time with family and grandkids.


Matt is a native of Traverse City. Being born and raised here, he loves that he can call TC home. Upon graduating from Traverse City Central High School, he went on to play football at Saginaw Valley State University. Matt would eventually transfer from SVSU to Northern Michigan University where he received a degree in Construction Management. Matt has worked in all aspects of construction, but his focus is on framing. When he isn’t working Matt, loves playing golf and basketball, as well as being on the water or in the woods.


A native of Traverse City, Amy began her real estate career in Chicago where her processes and implemented structures led to growth and expansion of single-tenant commercial clients, with a development portfolio stretching over 20 states and $115mm in revenue. Coming from a position as a senior development manager with more than 20-30 projects at at time, she loves the intimate attention afforded in custom residential builds.

“Kendall Smith and his dedicated crew kept us informed at all times during the build. We are indeed very satisfied customers.”
