Very professional and kept me in the loop, but handled all 3rd party activity: inspectors, mortgage, title & escrow companies. I look forward to using the David Ellis Team again.

Thanks for helping us locate our great house in Southern Utah. This was our fifth home to buy over the years and you were by far the best Realtor we've dealt with. It was obvious early on that you were thoroughly familiar with the area. You sensed immediately what we were looking for and you did not waste our time showing us houses that were unsuitable. We appreciated your thoroughness, and your low key, no pressure approach. You let us make a decision without undue influence from you. As you know, distance was a factor involved, but your website was excellent and we were able to screen properties and choose the ones we wanted to see prior to driving to southern Utah. You were always quick to respond to our inquiries. What we especially appreciate is that you were "with us all the way," always present at each step. We always felt you were working for us and no one else. Thanks, too, for your follow up telephones calls after we moved in. It was a pleasure working with you and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to our friends.

Dave was very professional and very good to work with. We told Dave what we were looking for and at what price point, he was quickly able to find a home that matched our needs. We'd heard that buying a home was a very stressful process, but Dave took extra time from his day to make sure that we didn't feel stressed. He took care of everything for us and was on top of everything! Dave has continued to check in on us since we've moved in and we feel as though we've gained a friend from this experience. We'd recommend Dave and his team to anyone looking for a home.

Dave Ellis has helped me and well as members of my family and a friend I referred to him with several real estate transactions. Working with Dave is wonderful, he listens to your needs and objectives and then executes. He is very patience and willing to do whatever is necessary to help you find what you are looking for or help you sell your property. I would recommend Dave to anyone; he will not let you down.

We had been considering moving to Saint George, and searching available houses for years via the Internet, etc. After we at last decided to move to Saint George from Denver, we had the great good fortune to find and engage Dave Ellis as our buyers’ agent to help us find and get into the right house. After many years working in the corporate and small-business world, we knew what a difference the quality of personal service could make in getting the deal done. We agree that Dave is as good as it gets in professionalism, competence, personal commitment, and just plain likability. Here’s how Dave does it: Dave listens and understands. Dave works tirelessly, and enthusiastically on the hunt and the details. Dave and his staff know what they are doing, so the whole process is managed in a remarkably professional manner. Dave communicates continually, effectively and pleasantly, so his client is never in the dreaded dark zone of What’s Happening? Dave follows through as well as any professional we have ever worked with in the corporate or small-business world. He also anticipates possible issues and concerns, and takes care of them. In short, Dave Ellis must be the best, because we cannot imagine what more any agent could have done for us during the grueling process of finding and buying a house in another state, in a town completely different from the one we left. One more thing: During the entire process, from the time we met Dave to signing the final papers, and even handling a few things after the closing, Dave was always available, enthusiastic and pleasant. I sometimes thought something we asked for would drive him nuts, but we asked and, as always, he responded with what almost seemed like joy at the opportunity to take care of it. Dave’s enthusiasm, pleasant and always-on communication made us very comfortable on a personal level. So, thank you, Dave Ellis.

"About a year ago we met Dave Ellis to look at homes here in St George. We had been looking at homes for a couple of years but decided to finally get serious about it. When we met with Dave he showed us three homes in Sienna Canyon and then he showed homes in several other areas. We spent two delightful days with Dave. We decided on our first choice for our new home and proceeded to make an offer. We were so impressed with the way Dave handled our home purchase and have told several friends about this young man and the professional way he conducted what could have been a stressful time for us. We love our new home and we are grateful to Dave Ellis for helping us find a wonderful place to live. We are also very appreciative of the fact that Dave still continues to call periodically and drop by. We value his friendship and his professionalism very much. We would highly recommend him to anyone."

David was recommended to us by a friend and we knew right away that we had a realtor that would meet our expectations. Our expectations included a professional team who understood the local housing market, listened to what we were looking for, and provided guidance and opportunities within those parameters. Furthermore, during the purchase, he and Camille provided reliable and frequent updates, so we always knew the status of our transaction and this is very much appreciated and further a testament to the team’s professional attitudes and business approach. We are excited about our future new residence in St. George and thanks to the David Ellis team for making this the beginning of a wonderful journey.

I spoke with a few area Real Estate Agents before going with David and he had the info I needed on first contact. He was knowledgeable, courteous and willing to work with what I was looking for.

We want you to know how grateful we are that we found you on the internet. As you know, we began looking for our dream home out west, we contacted numerous Realtors in several locations in Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico and Utah. Immediately, we saw that your web site was helpful and easy. But what has most impressed us was you: your availability, your knowledge of the area, and your genuine interest in our needs. You weren't out to sell a house. You wanted to help us make our dreams come true. And they have! We found the perfect home at a great price. You were so helpful to us during the negotiations with a very difficult seller. But your services didn't stop there. You assisted us through the closing on our property when we were 1,800 miles away. What's perhaps most impressive is that even after the closing you were there to help us with questions as we adjusted to our new home here in Southern Utah. You were consistently attentive, informed, honest and available. We feel so fortunate to have found you. Thank you very much!

It is with great pleasure we give our testimonial for Mr. David Ellis. David's excellence in managing the purchase of our new home in Washington Utah far exceeds the regular standard of excellence. He is not only a man of his word but in our opinion his intelligence in this field and his professional demeanor throughout the purchase was outstanding. David was always there for us as we were residents of another state and had David and his wonderful assistant Camille helping us both from a far. David was always there with answers to our questions and many concerns during the entire sales and purchase procedure. He would always answer all of our questions immediately and always put us at ease and in a place of calm and trust during the entire process. If Mr. Ellis could not answer the questions Camille would contact us and fill in what ever answers were needed to continue in a positive direction. We had a great many questions and situations which needed immediate attention regarding the sale of this property and David and his company went above and beyond to see that literally everything was taken care of so that the escrow would be as smooth as was possible. My husband and I recommend Mr. Ellis as a wonderful sales associate to any and all of our friends and family and for that matter to anyone needing his expertise. Further his company was amazing and took care of us down to the very last detail. I don't think we have ever had an association as positive with another company and sales associate as remarkable, professional, and thorough as David Ellis Realty and Mr. Ellis. The overall experience was excellent and we couldn't be happier with the outcome.
