Olivia was a natural in
understanding the need for positive customer relations in property
management and development projects. And, as an astute
businesswoman in her own right, she was one of the
first female realtors in Nevada to be appointed to the Real Estate
Advisory Commission by State Governor Mike O'Callahan. The Real
Estate Advisory Commission is the entity that promulgates the rules and
regulations of the real estate industry, and presides over, and hears
of violations of NRS645. Olivia served the commission for two
from 1977 to 1983.
The Silvagni family came to Las Vegas in 1929 when P.O. Silvagni was
contracted to fulfill a cement
contract during the construction of Boulder Dam. Boulder Dam was built
during the administration of President Herbert Hoover, and therefore
was also known for a time as "Hoover Dam".
P.O. Silvagni saw a need in the community for a place for
construction crews to get away from the work - and the heat of the
desert project, so he had an idea - obviously a very good idea... He
purchased a small plot of land on the corner of 2nd and Fremont Street
and went to work. This lot was an ideal location to build the first
fully air-conditioned hotel in Las Vegas. He built it, turned on the
air conditioning, and the customers came-a-running. There was no cooler
place to be for hundreds of miles around...
It was named the Apache Hotel and
Casino and has a long an illustrious history. The building is
also renowned as the first building in Las Vegas history to provide an
electrically powered elevator. And, even today - over seventy years
later, that original first elevator is still on that property and is
still in operation!
The Apache Bar,
with its massive painted
mirror depicting an Apache Indian Chief, was a favorite watering hole
movie stars like Clark Gable, W.C. Fields, Humphrey Bogart and Lucille
Ball. In those early days, many Hollywood celebrities would also
come to Las Vegas seeking a "quick
divorce" and would stay at the Apache because, having air-conditioned
rooms, it was the coolest place in town. They building is now known as
Binion's Horseshoe Hotel and Casino. The Silvagni family remains
the landlord of that famous corner to
Heritage Realty Company began by specializing in residential "executive
homes" in 1970. At that time, an executive home represented a price

specialize in helping first time home buyers as well. We give the
