--The Eberhart family

"You are by far the best of many realtors I have worked with. You were
unbelievably patient, low-pressure, no BS and went above and beyond the call of
duty on innumerable occasions. Furthermore, you are all a lot of fun to work
"Dave and the TexasRealtyPros.com team are easily the best realtor's we have
worked with. They always made us feel like we were their top priority. Even
though we knew Dave was busy, he never let us feel that way and was extremely
patient with our questions and issues. He always got back to us very quickly.
The office has a family like atmoshpere, and we felt welcome every time we came
in. It was the little things they did, like letting us ship some packages to
their office, that made our move and house search less stressful.
Our past experiences with other realtors were disappointing- they didn't protect
our interests, or failed to help us when the going got tough. Dave and his team
were there 100% the whole time, looking out for our interests, ensureing a
smooth negotiation, and helping us with last minute complications. We felt they
earned thier commission many times over.
Dave is very knowledgeable of the Eugene area and its different neighborhoods.
HIs knowledge helped us find the house and place in Eugene we would be happy
Even after the purchase, we have been in touch with Dave and the team, and they
still try to help us."
--Kevin and Lewin McCarthy
"We found Pat to be professional, knowledgeable, trustworthy, easy to work with
and always available. But totally rocking as well! He made an otherwise scary
and stressful venture easy and even fun.
He held our hand through all aspects of the house buying process. He even met
with the inspectors on our behalf, as we live out of town. Pat covered all the
bases, watched out for our interests, and was by our side from the beginning of
our search to the day we sat down to sign the escrow papers.
I have worked with 6 other Realtors and I have never before experienced such
wonderful treatment. Your company is a great alternative, especially Pat."

weekend and night time calls and even those that wound up involving the police."

meeting with Dave, we felt a huge relief. The reduction of stress for both of us
was significant and we are grateful."

treating me that way. All concerns addressed, all fears allayed, all questions

" Working with TexasRealtyPros.com - Realtor was an absolute pleasure. Because
of the complexities associated with buying a house for the first time and the
current "sellers market" that exists in Eugene, I started the process with a lot
of trepidation and a bit of procrastination. It was with joy that I was able to
find a Realtor that I felt played no games, but with a straight forwardness and
clear communication guided me down the path towards homeownership. I tended to
be very picky on finding the perfect house, and they were very patient and
informative in showing me various homes around town. They patiently kept with me
over the 6 months that it took to find my dream house. Once I finally found the
house that fit my many criteria, I discovered that although it was the first day
on the market there were at least 3 other bids placed. With Eugene Alternative -
Realtor support and knowledge of the current realty market, financial market,
and their knowledge of the other parties involved I was able to come out with
the winning bid and we glided through the rest of the buying process. I have
been in my house for just over a month and I am every day overjoyed to be living
there. Its perfect and I am very thankful that I was able to find a Realtor that
not only could I trust, but seemed to enjoy the process of helping me. Thank
