WHAT MY CLIENTS SAY

  

                                    Real Clients, Real Testimonials [2020 recent first]

 

    

There are real estate agents, then there are real estate professionals.  David Ross is the professional. Knowledgeable and quick to respond,  David was the calm eye in the transaction hurricane.  He kept the process moving forward through lender issues, long distance communication and global pandemics! He was right there and through it all, we closed right on time.  There were smiles all around and that's the bottom line.  

Highly recommended! Jim R  [relocation from Missouri]

We have worked with David a number of times already and wouldn’t dream of going with anyone else. He assisted in the sale of our house and handled it with expert precision. Normally this would be a stressful time, but with David as our realtor we were in good hands. Sarah & Jeremy Mattingly [Mater Dei]

~

“It was such a pleasure working with David! My husband and I knew very little about the home buying process, but David helped us through the entire process. He made our first time home buying experience so easy and pleasant! He is very professional, knowledgeable, and thorough. He answered any questions we had and kept us informed of everything that was happening. We knew we could rely on him to get things done. Thank you, David!” Mary & Nathan Haney [Mater Dei]

 Buying a house can be really stressful, especially as a first time home buyer. I had no idea what the process was like and wasn't even sure we were ready to buy a house. But David made navigating the process much smoother, even introducing us to an excellent mortgage lender! He listened to our needs and helped us find a house that matched them. Once we found a house we wanted his advice on how quickly to move and how much to offer probably made the difference between getting the house and losing it to other buyers.
 If I ever need a realtor again I'd definitely prefer to use David!—Scott & Sara Fahle [Mater Dei] 

~

We are pretty sure our relocation to the DFW area was one for the record books - so many ups and downs! David handled it all with patience and understanding, ultimately helping us find the perfect home for our family. As if that wasn’t enough, he helped us find a wonderful  place for my dad to boot!

David took time to get to know us and what we wanted in a home and that made all the difference in the process. He truly cares about his clients and that is apparent. David is kind, respectful, and hard-working; you can trust your family’s home to him! In David Ross we found not only a wonderful realtor, but a friend.   Marc & Keri Rome & Family [Mater Dei]

~

"David was very patient and helpful as we searched for the right home for our family.  He listened to our questions and concerns and worked hard to help us overcome them.  He was never too busy to take or return a phone call and to patiently answer my many questions.  Additionally, I think the most impressive thing about David's service is all the work he does "behind the scenes" with the other party to negotiate the best deal and make sure everything works out as well as possible.  I frequently had the impression that there was a lot more going on that I couldn't see that contributed to our successful purchase that David doesn't always get credit for, and I'm very grateful for all of that.  Thank you, David!" Christopher & Danielle Hatfield [Mater Dei]

~

David Ross was the agent who sold our home for us.  We were very proud of the home that we lived in for the past 27 years and David was very respectful of that fact.  He advised us on the proper price for our home and gave us invaluable advice about improving the look of the house.  David kept in constant touch with us and kept us up to date on what was happening.  It was obvious to us that David has excellent knowledge and experience in the real estate business.  We appreciate his professionalism and his optimistic attitude throughout the process.  We would recommend David as the best real estate agent for anyone selling their home.  Noreen & Rich DiDonato

~

“My wife and I have used David Ross for SIX real estate transactions!  He was recommended to us from a mutual friend when we were having trouble with another realtor being able to sell our house.  Buying and selling a house can be stressful, but David does a great job of guiding you through the process and making recommendations.  I found myself looking forward to speaking with him on the phone about strategizing etc.  He is very talented at the timing, nuance and details involved in the negotiation process.  Over the years, we have become good friends with the Ross family.  Whether you’re choosing a house or choosing what wine to have with dinner, David Ross is your guy!!!  David Ross for President!”  Laura & David Barker [Mater Dei]

~

Thank you so much for orchestrating (so seamlessly) this crazy deal and timeline. You were masterful.  Its been such a pleasure working with you.  Hopefully we can do it again soon.  To everyone [who played a part in selling my home], THANK YOU SO MUCH! I can't begin to tell you what this means to my family.  When David Ross told me there was only one lender and one title co that could possibly ever get a VA closed in 2 short weeks, on this time line...he was soooo right.  I'm in shock!  And his surveyors, on time too, just left my house.  David and his clients the Hatfields, thank you is not enough. Praise the Lord...He always has a plan.  Betty Methvin

David is the epitome of real estate professionalism, as demonstrated by his prompt, knowledgeable, and comprehensive answers he provided to us as first-time home buyers and the care and time he placed into our home search. We were certainly fortunate to have had him representing us, as there were several matters he shed light on and his negotiating skills and experience shined forth when we found the right home. We would certainly recommend him to anyone anticipating the sale or purchase of a home. Thank you, David! We greatly appreciate working with you! – Jordan and Danielle Hicks [Mater Dei]

When I needed to sell my house, my Sister-in-law recommenced David, since she stated that he sold their house within a few days and that he was very nice and a good realtor.   That was an understatement;  he is an awesome man and a great realtor!   He not only sold my house within a few days, but he was able to get full asking price, even though the market was declining.

I am a widow and my family lives in California. With no family near to guide me, I needed some hand holding. I could not have found a better realtor.  From the moment I first met David he put my fears and anxieties at rest.  He guided me through every step of the process.  He patiently answered my numerous questions, promptly returned my phone calls and emails and made recommendations that I truly believe escalated the sale of my home.

David is a constant professional;  he is reliable, knowledgeable in his field and always looking out for your best interest.  My experience was worry free and made easy because of David’s expertise and genuine concern for making this process easy for me.  I cannot be more pleased with my experience.    If you are looking for a realtor, then with enthusiasm, thankfulness and honesty, I highly recommend David Ross.

Thank you David, you made a difficult time in my life easier.  God bless you and you family.  (2019).  Mrs. Sharon Farmer

Once again we are in a new home thanks to David. Rather than make several offers with the hope of being accepted (as friends of ours have done), he helped us to craft an aggressive offer on the house we loved. Working with David we have made 2 offers and have closed on 2 houses. Our closing process was continually delayed because of seller complications, and David was always on top of checking in with all parties and ensuring that updates were passed along immediately.

We could not be happier with the skill and experience that David Ross brings to the table when it comes to purchasing a new home! Buying a home is hectic and the current market is so fast (many close to offers within 24 hours) that you certainly want someone with the years of experience David has (30+). He continually mitigated the stress of our recent buying process—Eric & Anne Dougherty Palmer

~

We highly recommend David for all your real estate needs! Our move to Texas was done so smoothly thanks to David. After taking the time to understand the house we were looking for he worked diligently to get us the house we fell in love with. We cannot speak highly enough about David’s integrity, work ethic and expertise in the industry. He has been such a blessing to our family.  - Jeremy and Sarah Mattingly

~

We sold our house last month and I wanted to give a shout out to David Ross. He’s awesome!

He is a fabulous realtor. He sold our house in 3 days for above asking price when the market already slowed down! But the best part is he guided us through every step of the process, making recommendations, explaining every detail of what was going on, etc. He is an incredible negotiator and really gifted in his field!

When we bought our new house, outside of Dallas, we had to use a different realtor and I could really tell the difference-- he gives all his clients special treatment! So if you’re looking to sell or buy a house, get David Ross! --THE WILLS FAMILY

~

When we put up our house for sale [with another agent] we expected things to go smoothly;  our mistake was clear.  It was at that point that we asked David to take over our listing. It was precisely because of the challenging market situation we found ourselves in  that we are so glad to have David on our side.

David never let us down, and he managed a complicated and delicate situation with expertise and calm. Without David we either would still be in our house, or we would have closed on negative terms.

I've said it before: if you need a home, or want to get rid of one, David is the first one you should call.  --Porres Family [2019]

~

We highly recommend David to be your realtor.  Relocating from New York, our family just bought a house in which David helped us tremendously. We had to navigate several obstacles along the way and he worked with us at every step. He provided great information along the way to make sure we made the best decisions.  

David is professional, reliable, thorough, knowledgeable  and always looking out for your interest. We were so pleased with our experience and would certainly use him again in the future. 

If your looking for true expertise in buying a home David is your guy! Thanks again David! — Bill and Tina Meyer [2019, New York]

~

David was the answer to our prayers. My wife Cindy and I had been planning a move from California to the beautiful state of Texas for quite some time; and we realized we needed help in doing so. We knew from our first meeting that David was a man of integrity. He listened to our needs and quickly responded with a plan of action. We found the house that met our needs in the first week. We then were able to return to California and conduct business with David long distance while we tied up the loose ends. David is a blessing and we are very thankful.      Matt & Cindy Haney

We came to David Ross as first-time homebuyers on a tight budget and a tighter schedule. He has exceeded our expectations at every turn. David’s professionalism is impeccable; he walked us through every step of the home-buying process and answered a myriad of questions along the way.

One thing that has stood out to us throughout the process is that David’s goal is to not only satisfy, but to impress his clients. He sought to understand what we wanted in a home, helped us to set realistic expectations based on our desires and budget, and coordinated with all the players in the home-buying process to ensure that it went smoothly for us. Our price range put us up against stiff competition, but David was able to get an offer accepted on the first day we visited homes for sale. In a market where it’s taken for granted that buyers will over-pay, our sale price was actually lower than the appraised value!

We cannot speak highly enough of our experience working with David and recommend David Ross, Realtor® without reservation. -Evan and Erin Wormsbecher (Mater Dei)

~

David Ross is our first choice when seeking any real estate matters. This is our family’s 4th dealing with David in selling or buying a home. His experience and expertise gave us the peace and confidence we needed to let him handle everything and trust that it would be done swiftly and correctly. Once again, he did not disappoint! With his advice and direction, we sold our home for over the asking price, cash buyer and all completed within about 3-4weeks.

It doesn’t get better than that!

We wouldn’t hesitate to highly recommend David for real estate needs. Thank you again David!  

Steve and Susan Franklin [MATER DEI]

David helped my wife and I purchase a home a number of years ago.  When it came time [Spring of this year] to sell that home and buy another, there was no question as to who to call for help with the process.  We are very grateful to him for his expertise, his prompt responses to each and every question, his professionalism, and just as equally, if not more so, his kindness and sense of humor.  He never misses a beat and truly makes this look easy!  Through his help again, we were able to secure great deals, both on the sale of our previous house in town and on the purchase of our new one out in the country – a move for which we have hoped for many years.  We are very thankful, and would highly recommend him to anyone! –Daniel & Renee Kouba [Mater Dei]

~

I highly recommend David as your realtor.  He's been ours 3 times now!  Previously, David sold our former home,  then helped us purchase our next home during a bidding war.  He gave us great advice that allowed us to be prevail over all competing bids and successfully buy our next residence.   All the while he worked hard to make sure we were able to see all relevant available listings.

Four years later [this year] when we decided to put that home up for sale we knew David would be our choice as our Realtor®. My wife and I now have relocated from the Dallas area to another state and knew that David was the Realtor® we could trust and rely on while we were out of state.  Within days we received multiple offers and David was able to get the purchaser to agree to a quick close.   David took what could’ve been an extremely stressful time selling a house from out of state into a smooth, stress-free transaction.

My wife and I are forever grateful for David,  his assistance and his friendship.  Tim and Stephanie Messonnier  [MATER DEI]

You can trust that David Ross will fight for you. That is just one of the things that makes David THE BEST REALTOR WE HAVE EVER WORKED WITH BY FAR (after a dozen moves and real estate transactions all over the country with the military). We have worked with other agents who try to persuade you to make compromises or rethink your priorities to make their job easier; in contrast, David put in extra time and effort, way beyond expectations, to make sure our family landed our dream home on the BEST POSSIBLE TERMS. He demonstrated intimate familiarity with the entire DFW metroplex, and his EXPERTISE and RESPONSIVENESS are unmatched in our experience. We hope this home is our last, but if we ever need to buy or sell a home again, David Ross will get our business. -Lauren and Adam Frisch family [Mater Dei]

~

"David made my wife and I feel like we were his only clients. He took the time to answer every question that I had about a home purchase. When the time came to negotiate a price, he went above and beyond what was expected. He even followed up with me weeks after to make sure that I had the necessary property tax forms. I'd recommend David to anyone that wants to buy a house." [MATER DEI.]

~

David,   I appreciate everything you’ve done [listing/selling my client’s home].  You’ve been a tremendous help.  I’ve enjoyed working with you on this.  As an estate planning and probate attorney I know several realtors in my immediate part of town that I could have gone to but my client has always said she wanted you to sell her house and I felt like the least I could do was honor her long-time request.  I am very glad that I did.  You have been great to work with.  You have been very patient and timely with my endless questions and have been very professional. Mark Remington. Law Offices of Mark A. Remington

~

David, we love the house. Thank you for encouraging us to take a look at it. It’s just what we were looking for! And we love being this close to the parish.  We are very happy with how things went financially, you exceeded our expectations at every turn. The providers you recommended were very  professional and expedient. The inspector was great and your loan officer was exceptional. The title company was fantastic. I really feel like we got quite a steal and were treated as VIPs through the whole process. Thanks for facilitating!  It’s been great having you lead us through this process. I hope that we are able to recommend your services to many others in the future!  KEVIN & MILISSA KUKLA [MATER DEI]

[In selling our home] David Ross was knowledgeable, and explained the process from day one.  He always responded to emails promptly, with different options for us to consider.  We never felt pressured, but were given support in each decision we made.  David went out of his way to check on our vacant home, and assured us throughout the process that everything was under control.  His marketing and promoting are what sold our home.  We feel grateful to have found David Ross to represent us in this selling process.--DENISE & ADAM SWENSON

~

We were not an easy case. First, we were trying to coordinate finding and buying a house from across the country. And second, my schedule kept changing forcing David to tap dance with other realtors to rearrange showings. It turns out, he’s a great tap dancer. He rolled with all difficulties we threw at him, maintaining a calm and generous demeanor throughout it all. 

After a whirlwind of showings, he helped us land on our dream home. What I really liked was he asked questions that I hadn’t thought of, helping us dial down the choices. And once we worked through the offer/acceptance process, he stayed on top of my lender to ensure everything would be ready for closing.

With David on our side, this very challenging process seemed almost turnkey. He even made it enjoyable. He’s funny, endearing … a great pro in all aspects of the job. I give him the highest recommendation. Brian & Colleen Trainor [Mater Dei]

~

My family and I relocated TX from NJ and there were many unknowns and differences in the home-buying experience.  In any real estate transactions, there are bound to be unexpected things that pop-up, but especially in an interstate relocation.  This is when you need a true professional like David to be your agent.  David helped us navigate the entire process to closing very smoothly.  Specifically, by follow-up, recommendations, and advice. He was very knowledgeable and available whenever we had to reach him.  In fact, we made an offer sight-unseen based off of the recommendations of David.  We are very satisfied and highly recommend David to anybody that is looking for an experienced professional real estate agent!--Sam & Jessica Ahn  [Mater Dei]

~

David made the entire home buying process a good experience. This was the first time I purchased a house in Texas and David provided excellent advice, was unfailingly knowledgeable, helpful, and professional. I would not hesitate to recommend him to family and friends looking for real estate in the DFW market.--Linda Hrebec

~

David, thank you so much for your assistance in the buying of our house. Thank you as well for videotaping the home so that I could see it from out of state! You were very patient with us while we weren't sure of the what and where. We're so glad that when that day came that our house first listed, you were able to get my husband in to see it within hours and make that offer immediately. More importantly, you are a good and honest man with a lovely family. We are happy to know you!   [Mater Dei]

~

David is a consummate professional and works for his clients' interest. As a first time buyer, I found his experience and market knowledge make him not only resourceful at finding homes, but a great guide and skilled negotiator. He will walk you through all phases of the home buying process and patiently take on any questions you might have. Thank you, David--Brendan Devine  [MATER DEI]

~

Dear David,

We can't thank you enough for helping us negotiate through a very hot marketplace! You made selling our house quick and easy.  But buying one in the same marketplace was quite a different scenario.  Down sizing was our goal-something smaller and simpler, as our nest has gotten smaller.  

Your expertise and knowledge helped us through this very competitive marketplace.  We greatly appreciate your patience!  We will refer you to all of our friends! In fact, we already have!  Thanks again,  Thys and Patti Jones

~

Hi David, we wanted to thank you again for the outstanding job you did for us as our realtor.  You were already our choice from the beginning when our mutual friend, Angie, absolutely raved about your competence when you sold her house.   Because we were well acquainted with each other for some years I already knew you to be a man of the highest integrity, for me a much sought after quality in any working relationship, and it this case, a known. 

You know how nervous and overwhelmed I was and how I burdened myself about how to handle all the many decisions and details regarding our old house in need of so many updates.  You told us we "didn't have to do anything".  From the day we officially put it all in motion you allayed all those worries and concerns and they were never given another thought.  We had so much confidence in you that for our part we totally trusted your judgment at every stage, going to bat for us for a fair price and advising us when the best deal come along.  Honestly we didn't think the house would sell as quickly and we do think we got a great price.  You certainly proved yourself worthy of our confidence.

I must admit I had been praying seriously about selling the house ( and many other things as well) and honestly we feel you were answered prayer.

God bless you and your beautiful family.

Sincerely and gratefully,  Gene & Joanie Graves  [Mater Dei]

“My wife Laura and I have used David Ross to help us in the selling process 2 different times and the buying process 2 different times.  He has always been a pleasure to work with.  I’ve always enjoyed our various conversations on the phone.  He gives very sound and practical advice on the whole house selling / buying process.  I am honored to call him ‘friend’ as well.  He is a gentleman and a scholar.  David Ross for President of the United States!!!” --David & Laura Barker [Mater Dei]

      I'd been planning a cross country move for a long time to pursue my dream of a PhD in the Dallas area. I'd never bought or sold a house before, and found the very thought of the whole process very, very intimidating. 

    Fortunately for me, I had the good fortune of meeting Mr. David Ross through a network of friends and acquaintances. He has been everything I had hoped to find in an agent. Not only did he work with our pressed-for-time schedule when we visited to look for houses, he moved quickly and effectively, working with our limited schedule when we needed to see a few more places before we made our decision. 

    Indeed, without David, I doubt things would have progressed as far as they have; he was even able to find us an effective agent all the way on the West Coast, where we currently live. Moreover, he's taken care of and guided me through the dozens of details that so daunted me early on in this process. As of this writing, our move is still in progress, but I'm confident that without Mr. Ross, it never would have gotten fully started.

Thank you, David!  John & Jeanna McNichol [author; UD PhD student;  teacher, The Highlands;  ] 

We chose David Ross to represent us in selling our home due to a glowing referral from our son. We just completed the sale and it was truly a "dream deal"...cash offer over listing price, quick closing, etc. It couldn't have gone any smoother and efficiently! David has been such a professional and gentleman. The comfort and trust we felt from the start, due to his knowledge and experience, gave us confidence and ease through the entire process. Not only has he earned our respect for his business acumen, but also as a dedicated family man. We would refer David to anyone with real estate needs. Thank you David. We have enjoyed your wit and sense of humor.  It has been our pleasure. Steve and Susan Franklin ,   [Mater Dei]

"David Ross has now helped us to find and purchase our second home in Texas. Not only did he sell our house in TWO days for 125% of our asking price, he also helped us to find the perfect home in a very competitive market. David and his team knew what we wanted, how to make it happen, and they expertly guided us through the entire process. And most importantly, he was patient and diligent in responding to our questions, our concerns, and helping us find the perfect house.
I hope I never move again, but if I do, I will be calling Mr Ross a third time."  Sergio & Emily Porres

“This is not the first time I have used David Ross for representing me when purchasing/selling our home.  And as expected he was there every step of the way for us, especially at the most critical times making sure everything goes smoothly.  With our latest sale he had to prod the buyer’s agent as she seemed to be asleep at the wheel more than once.  I spent almost no effort during the process.  I really appreciated the easy to use electronic signature documents that my wife and I could sign from my phone without any difficulties.  He is very professional and responsive and just knows this business very well!  I would recommend him to anyone!”  -- John & Grace Bezner ,  [Mater Dei]




  There are real estate agents, then there are real estate professionals.  David Ross is the professional. Knowledgeable and quick to respond,  David was the calm eye in the transaction hurricane.  He kept the process moving forward through lender issues, long distance communication and global pandemics! He was right there and through it all, we closed right on time.  There were smiles all around and that's the bottom line.  

Highly recommended! Jim R

Normally this would be a stressful time, but with David as our realtor we were in good hands.   Sarah & Jeremy Mattingly [Mater Dei]

This was our first time using David Ross for representing us in our home sale. He had prepared a meticulous comparison search from an inquiry the year before during our contemplation. He then had it at his fingertips when the time came to list. What organization! We found ourselves very comfortable and at ease with his knowledge guiding us through the process. He even used his expertise to obtain OVER listing price in our particular market, demonstrating his knowledge and strategy in negotiations. We spent little effort during the process. We appreciated his kind understanding during the stress. He’s –to say the least—extremely professional but comfortable enough we considered him “a hoot”. We would recommend him to anyone!” --Russ and Christy Baer,

~

Feel confident in choosing David for your real estate needs. His experience in the industry was highly manifest in negotiating both our selling and purchasing deals. He was able to quickly answer all of our questions and concerns from his extensive knowledge base. We were very impressed with his strategies in handling negotiations, that I believe an inexperienced realtor would not have been able to tackle. His aggressive business expertise is equally matched by his charm, which is both effective in the tense moments as well as in the relaxed. His dapper exterior accurately reflects his inward character, which again is manifest in most my interactions with him. It has been an absolute pleasure working with David and if ever I have real estate needs in the future, he will always be my first and only choice; you would be prudent to choose him too. Jeremy & Karroline Franklin, Mater Dei,

“We have used David Ross to help us in selling our previous two homes and the purchase of our most recent home. We plan to use him for our upcoming home purchase as well. He knows the real estate industry very well and is very responsive. He is a great negotiator and diplomatic at the same time – all while maintaining a great sense of humor. We recommend David for any of your home selling or negotiating needs.” --DAVID & LAURA BARKER, [ Mater Dei ],

~

This was our second time working with David, this time as a seller. David walked us through the entire selling process, gave us great advice and guidance along the way, and helped us to get under contract in less than a week! If you want a great realtor who knows what he’s doing and has a ton of experience, we highly recommend David Ross! - Amanda & Evan Cornell [Mater Dei],

~

"We have worked with David at least ten times -- on both the buying and selling sides. He is an absolute professional with skills that make him unique among realtors today. We have been so pleased with his work -- time and again!-- especially in the area of negotiations and professionalism. David is incredibly patient and hardworking. He really listens to his clients desires for their home and tailors a very unique search around your criteria. He is there pretty much around-the-clock to calm fears, explain the often complicated processes of real estate and keep you positive during the entire "ride". We just moved into a new home, guided through the process, yet again, by David. We only got this house because he helped us make an offer (when there were already 5 or 6 other offers) that the seller simply couldn't turn down ... despite the fact that our offering price WAS NOT the highest in the bunch. We will never, ever use another realtor. -Dominic & Audra Kubelka. 

I could not possibly recommended David Ross highly enough. We really only got the house we wanted because of him. Right now, across America, major companies and small businesses alike are moving to Texas. Texas is still seeing one of the best economies in the nation. Cost of living is low, Taxation is low, and the weather...well it’s ok. In a nutshell, everyone is moving to Texas. As such the housing market is faster and crazier than ever before.

My fiance and I, looking to buy and prepare our first house before our wedding [but still living apart], chose David on recommendations from family [Brandon and Mary Dougherty Misko, MATER DEI]. After a great phone call we met for lunch to talk in person about our wants and needs for our house. Right from the start you can tell that he really cares about what you want and envision for a home. All along the way he took the time to explain the details of “how and why” and what to expect. He uses a “portal” website that ties into realtor listings. It shows you the most up to date information and can be adjusted to fit pretty wide parameters. It is much more up-to-date than zillow or realtor and you receive email notifications when a new listing goes up.

Here are some of our frustrations with buying a house for the first time and the ways David overcame them:

We are a young couple with a tight budget and expensive taste. David always gave us his complete attention and made us feel like we were his only clients while giving us realistic expectations.

We were on a long time frame because our wedding was several months away so we didn’t need to be in a house yet. David never rushed us along the way.

We found a house we both loved but with the crazy market showings were closed the same day it was posted for sale. David still found a way for us to at least get in and see the house.

We knew there were several other offers and we might have to come up with a lot of cash on hand to win a bidding war. David set up a very good deal to make our offer the most attractive to the seller. We offered to pay the total amount of the appraisal but did not guarantee to add cash to make up any difference. So we could finance all of the purchase and wouldn’t need to use extra cash if the appraisal came in low.

The appraisal still came in under our offer and David worked another deal- the seller dropped their price saving us thousands!

Every step of the way David Ross used his years of experience to negotiate and persuade things to go exactly our way. We always knew what was going on as David kept us in constant communication. But most of all we really felt like David cared about what was best for us in this process. We will definitely work with David again in the future and have been recommending him to family and friends. For anyone searching for an agent and reading this, call David Ross right now. You will be glad you did!-- Eric Palmer, Anne Dougherty

David has been helping us buy a house, and I must say we had some pretty unusual request in a property. However we have found a house that I believe our family is going to absolutely love. David's expertise and patience with all of my constant enquiries has made the whole process much easier. He was available at all hours of the day to accommodate our schedule and ready with advice when we asked for it. What has impressed me most is that he runs his business with true Catholic ideals that are so hard to find these days. I would without a doubt pass his name on to anyone who was looking for an outstanding realtor. Thank you so much David! --Paige and Joel Cox and family[Mater Dei]

~

We truly appreciated all of the help that David Ross gave us in finding our new home. He was very professional and knowledgeable, and he was also very prompt with correspondence. When we found a house we wanted, David was right there to lead us through the process and was very efficient in providing the paperwork for us to sign as well as keeping up with all of the necessary steps with his part of the process. David was also good with little details and even negotiated a warranty for the house that we were not expecting to have. Overall, we would definitely recommend David Ross as a realtor and were very pleased to be able to work with such an honest, good Catholic man! --Wesley and Amanda Crouch, [Mater Dei]

~

David is an outstanding realtor. Not only did he patiently show many, many houses in the hunt until we found the one that suited our needs, but he also painstakingly went through every detail of our wants and desires to make sure we got the best deal we could get. As a military family, also going through a deployment during this whole process, we cannot thank him enough for his hard work in making this a smooth and easy process for my wife and family at home--Sergeant Anthony and Susannah Kennedy [Mater Dei]

David, thank you for working so hard for the best outcome for our family (selling our old home, representing us on buying the new one). We are so happy with our new house and we're slowly getting things into place. You promised that you would handle the sale of our house expertly and you certainly did. In searching for our new home, you were attentive to our needs and did an amazing job guiding us through the offer and negotiation process. We'll be sure to sing your praises to anyone we know who might be looking to buy or sell their home! Take care and God bless you, Briana & Alejandro Valencia [Mater Dei]

David is clearly an expert! Appreciated us as if we were his #1 priority. Was professional (like James Bond!) and of impeccable style and eloquence. His distinguishing marks would be: virtue, responsiveness, willingness to answer all our questions, and fast!...competence! He found us our dream home! -- Jordan and Desarare Low [Mater Dei]

~

David proved deep expertise of the area and the process [of buying]. He went above and beyond in handling all that came up; his timeliness was critical in managing the process, and, found the perfect [Irving] house for us! Some distinguishing marks for David would be: his knowledge of the area, timeliness and professionalism, availability at crucial times, and, he excelled in negotiations. We would engage David again as our agent and would recommend him to all friends and family!-- Sergio & Emily Porres [out-of-state relocation to Irving, Cistercian]

David, please accept my humble review of your services on this the vigil of our first week home ownership..."David’s expertise and hard work were absolutely crucial to our home purchase. I have little doubt that taking David’s advice on strategy at each step of the process made our dream home a reality. We were fairly unfamiliar with the home buying process at the outset. Relying on David’s counsel and representation of our interests, we were able to navigate through a particularly stressful and uncertain process…and purchase the exact home, in the exact area, at the exact price we hoped and prayed for. David is a trustworthy, honest, knowledgeable, and seasoned agent. He exceeded our expectations in all aspects of the process. We look forward to the next opportunity to work with David…not for a while though, we love the home." Mr. O'Keefe Summer [Mater Dei referral]

When my husband Michael and I decided to actively pursue looking for our future home months ago it became quickly apparent that we needed a realtor and not just any realtor but a seasoned realtor. My good friends who had also been searching for a home and were in the process of closing, highly recommended David Ross. Michael and I called to meet with him to see if it was a right fit. David treated us to a lovely dinner to get to know us and what our exact needs and wants were. My husband did most of the talking. Towards the end of the evening I asked David 2 questions: 1) Do you pray for your clients? To which David replied that he does pray for his clients and his business. 2) If we find our "dream home" will you fight for us? David responded that he most certainly would. We closed on our home today! I can attest that David does pray for his clients because he sure did work miracles for us.

The day "our dream home" was listed, my husband contacted David and asked to see it, David quickly made arrangement for us to see the home the same day. We loved it, it was in our number one area and up to that point we were uncertain we could get in due to the high demand. David quickly counseled us into a strategy to secure our bid. We did exactly as David recommended. Two days later we found out that among all the other offers (there were numerous) ours was accepted.

But David's role did not stop there. We thought the Dallas market was tough, we found ourselves in a crazier situation with our credit union. A week before we were to close our credit union couldn't guarantee that they could close on time. Michael and I panicked that we might lose our dream home to the next bidder. We called several lenders asking if they could close in a weeks time, they all said no. David recommended a lender and they assured us that they could close in a week plus one day. David, tactfully worked with the Sellers to extend our closing date out so we could close. I use the word tactfully because, in the process David had re-negotiated on our behalf for the sellers to come down on the price. Somehow they accepted! With our additional request to close a later David got them to agree. David had renegotiated our price down by so much we were no longer the highest bidders and somehow we closed today! Through all the twists and turns (there are plenty I didn't mention) there were apparent miracles. Daily Michael and I would say how blessed we were to have David as a realtor, without him fighting for us we would not be in our dream home today. He is a star!

David, My family and I wanted to write this letter for a while now and thank you for all your help you've given us as a realtor. We've seen you work both as someone that helped sell our home and helped us purchase a home. Your dedication and thoughtfulness has meant a lot to us. One of your best qualities is being able to help people on the emotional roller coaster that both buying and selling a home can be. You were always able to be professional and thoughtful at the same time and we deeply appreciate that. We definitely will be recommending you to anyone looking to purchase or sell a home. Thanks once again, The Messonniers, Tim & Stephanie [Mater Dei]

David was very professional in guiding us through the home-buying process; very knowledgeable on location and the whole home-buying process. He took all our search parameters and got us the information (available inventory) we needed very quickly. Kept us in great constant email contact at all the critical times. He calmed out nerves when necessary and made the whole process very smooth. His dealings with us were further marked by his friendly character and positive outgoing interaction. Loved the dinner out which we viewed as his way of showing us he appreciated our business! We give David a "10" on satisfaction...we've already referred him to our friends. --Evan & Amanda Cornell [Mater Dei]

Thank you David, for your sincere goodwill and kindness... we will never forget our wonderful realtor who made buying our first house such a pleasant experience! The more people we mention your name to, the more praise we hear of you. I am sure you are well practiced in the art of being humble before the praise of mortals, and so we are not afraid to tell you this and to thank and admire you ourselves ... as well as thank God for you. We will miss our frequent correspondence, but are happy knowing you are taking such good care of your other clients, and look forward to seeing you and your family around our new beloved parish Mater Dei! -Daniel & Renee Kouba [Mater Dei]

Mr. Ross is a gem of a realtor [for buying and selling]. Impressive all the way round. Trustworthy, listens to our needs, personal touch, attention to detail and a good sense of humor! He worked so hard to get a good price. He’s dedicated, knowledgeable and very hardworking, He never seems to make you feel he’s in a hurry or rushed--spends all the time you need, so professional and paid attention to even the most petty of our requests! Was attentive to the psychological needs of children throughout the showing process (on selling). -- Dean and Becky Crawford, Irving, [Mater Dei]

David was amazing. As first-time buyers, we had a lot of questions. He made the process easy. We were very confident that David was extremely knowledgable and took care of every detail. We did not have to worry about anything. He is very good at what he does, handled everything so well, especially since the other agent was horrible --Jamie and James Hahn, [Mater Dei ]

David, we love the house. Thank you for encouraging us to take a look at it. It’s just what we were looking for! And we love being this close to the parish. We are very happy with how things went financially, you exceeded our expectations at every turn. The providers you recommended were very professional and expedient. Butch (inspector) was great, Suzie (loan officer) was exceptional. The title company was fantastic. I really feel like we got quite a steal and were treated as VIPs through the whole process. Thanks for facilitating! It’s been great having you lead us through this process. I hope that we are able to recommend your services to many others in the future!--Kevin & Milissa Kukla [Mater Dei]

[David] was very knowledgeable; the buyer's agent complimented me for MY agent! This is the third time we used him. We would use him again [due to his] high level of professionalism and character. One of the distinguishing features that stood out was when we had a family crisis--a death in the family--the same day the offer came in. David handled it wonderfully.

You are a phenomenal real estate agent. You have a tremendous amount of experience and care deeply about your clients and it shows. You are a phenomenal realtor. We were always impressed with the level of service you provided. -The Davidsons

[1] We enjoyed David’s sense of humor and his honesty. Honesty is important, because in the art of financial planning having a proper compass on a situation is imperative for making sound decisions. [2] It is important to me that an agent be personally invested in the sale/purchase of my home, not just professionally invested. I wish to be treated as a friend, not simply as another client in a very long list. The headaches and heartaches of real estate demand this type of personal hand-holding. [3] David Ross has the total package - experience, creativity, and personality. It was clear from the very beginning that selling our home was more than a professional investment. To David, it was a personal investment. His genuine concern for people is, undoubtedly, the reason for his continual success. I will never use another agent - Tarek Saab (2007 Apprentice contestant; speaker, author)
