"Ross is very much a "stand out" in the real estate sector. He was professional, conscientious, easy to work with, patient with us and accommodating. He had a vast knowledge of the current market and was very responsive to our requests. He worked very hard representing us on both the buy and sell sides and took time above and beyond our expectation level. I would rank his negotiation and timing skills are among his gifts given he has vast experience in the financial sector as well. We will continue to recommend him to anyone looking for a highly skilled realtor." - J Ruiz

"I have to say Ross was one of the most intelligent, caring, trustworthy professionals I have ever dealt with. I knew I was in good hands from the moment I met him. From our very first conversation it was obvious he knew his industry inside and out. He called me within ten minutes of reaching out to him, which was impressive. After our very first conversation, I felt extremely confident in trusting Ross with one of the biggest transactions I have ever made. During the process, not only did he respond quickly to all my concerns, the house was listed on May 8, and we literally had an offer by June 3. I couldn’t have asked for more. I will definitely recommend Ross to anyone buying or selling a home in the Austin area." - Tina H

"I had the privilege of working with Ross as my Realtor on the process selling and purchase a home in Verona community. Ross' knowledge about real estate is multi-faceted and he is most certainly able to do more than the average agent. I appreciated his ability to advise me post home inspection; and when a situation took place with financing, he was there to help and support me in every way possible. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Ross Speed to any person who is looking to buy or sell a home, as well as seek his service in any of my future real estate transactions. Thank you very much Ross for all the help and always being at our disposal." - Jaime C

"Ross was amazing. As a first time home buyer, I was very anxious about everything. He really helped calm my fears and answered all of my questions. My parents co-signed on the home and they loved how easy it was to get a hold of him. He is highly knowledgeable, very quick to reply to all emails or phone calls, and generally just a nice guy. Ross really made the whole process much easier and enjoyable. I am happy to recommend him to anyone and everyone." - Kirsten W

"We worked with Ross Speed, and he was a game changer. He was honest about the process, flexible to meet whatever needs we had, and frankly worked his butt off from day one to the day we closed on our house. Ross is the best thing next to a magic wand. Thanks, Ross!" - Joshua T

"I am a very difficult person to deal with, but I must say that I admire Ross's professionalism, friendliness, and patience he always had with me. Ross sells a security in everything he promises and what is best he complies with it. I will always recommend Ross to others looking to buy or sell!!" - Jorge O

"Ross really impressed me on this latest property we purchased. He negotiated several difficult conversations with the buyer and ultimately ended up getting us a multi-family property in North Austin. Ross is organized and effective. I enjoy working with him." - Matt B

"Ross Speed is amazingly helpful and made our home-buying very easy and hassle-free. He always follows up, responds on time and takes care of you. Highly recommend Ross!!" - Sushovan S

"Ross was great! As a first time home buyer, I had a lot of concerns, and I lacked a lot of knowledge on the ins and out of buying a house. Ross was there to walk us through every step and made the process considerably less stressful. He was very diligent and always made my wife, and I feel like we had somebody by our side during the negotiation process." - Andrew J

"Ross was great!! He helped guide us through the sale of our home to the closing of our newly built home. I appreciate how available he was to us no matter how late. It was truly was a pleasure to have Ross as our agent." - Robert & Phelicia M

"Ross was a joy to work with and definitely exceeded our expectations. I appreciate his easy-going attitude and sense of humor. He returned all of our calls, texts, and emails promptly regardless of the day or hour. This transaction turned out to be unusual and protracted, and he stuck with us all the way. I would be happy to recommend his services to anyone." - Ann R

"Ross was excellent. We first came in contact with him in October when we contracted to build a new home. He understood we would not be putting our current (former) place on the market until the Spring and did not pressure us. When we were ready he came prepared with a very good market analysis. We got an offer with a contingency, but he provided a market analysis on that house as well, showing it was below the normal asking price for the neighborhood, which lead us to accept the offer. I can't think of a single problem we had with communication and responsiveness." - Steve R

"I had made a few trips to TX from our home in AZ searching for a new place. I became very frustrated and confused with all the choices and learning my way around. I was close to giving up my search and not moving at all.

One day I got a phone call from Ross. I was a bit skeptical thinking it was some sort of sales pitch. I'm glad I was wrong. He was a breath of fresh air. From the first time, we met to this day he has been focused, courteous, and relentless in his efforts to find the home that suited us. As it turned out, we not only found the home for us, but he helped negotiate the pricing with the builder.

We are now about one week into our new home and not looking back. I would be happy to recommend Ross to anyone that is looking for a professional who knows the market.
" - Bob C

"We wanted to thank Ross for helping us sell our house in Brushy Creek, and we are looking forward to the purchase of our new home in MorningStar. Due to my long work hours and the fact that we were always calling all times of day and night, we probably weren't the easiest customers. We appreciated his patience.

Ross was quick to return calls, answer questions and advise us on matters concerning selling or buying. He contacted us regularly, even when we hadn't called him, to keep us informed on needed transactions. He made sure that paperwork was in order, deadlines were met, and our closings went smoothly. We enjoyed working with him.

We also felt all transactions were handled in a very professional manner. Real estate information was clear and concise. Our questions and concerns were addressed promptly, and deadlines were met on time. Our closing on both properties went smoothly and looked forward to the new home closing. Ross takes the home buying and selling to a new level.
" - James & Gina O

"Ross Speed did an outstanding job in helping my wife, and I locate and purchase our dream piece of property in a very timely painless manner. Ross also answered all of our questions quickly and thoroughly and often anticipated our needs or questions which again put us at ease during what is usually a stressful time. I would seek Ross out again if I was in the purchasing mode and would refer him to other friends and family in need of an Austin area agent." - Rob H

"I had a great experience working with Ross. As a first time home buyer, Ross was extremely helpful and explained any questions and concerns I had during the process. From the beginning, he worked with me to look at different properties and explain concerns about each. He also was prompt when I finally decided on a home, and handled every issue we ran into while closing. I had a very good overall experience and would recommend Ross, to anyone I know looking for a realtor in the area." - Michael B

"We have worked with a couple of agents in the past, but not one like Ross Speed. My husband and I interviewed three agents before we made our final decision and you guessed right, we chose Ross! Ross provided excellent customer service, even doing the times of difficult discussion.

Ross is very responsive to his clients emails. texts, and phone calls. I will certainly refer Ross to all my friends and family in Texas. Thank you again Ross for representing me and my husband. It's been a pleasure meeting you and working with you as well!
" - The Pearsons

"Ross took care of the sell of our home as well as the purchase of our new home. He was always professional, knowledgeable, and present through the entire process. He really did make the sale of our existing home easy by providing great information and suggestions, as well as coordinating all parts of the selling process. The experience we had with Ross was terrific and we now have a Realtor for life on all future needs." - Tyler L

"Ross has gone above and beyond expectations! If something wasn't right he made it even better than right. We enjoyed working with him immensely!" - Janis K

"Our Realtor, Ross Speed was amazing. I cannot say enough good things about him and how easy he made the whole moving process for us!" - David W

"Our Realtor, Ross Speed has been amazing. I cannot say enough good things about him. He made the entire moving process so much easier for us. We especially loved his depth of knowledge about the business, and his super available communication style! We had a great experience and truly thank him for all his hard work. " - Ginger W

"Throughout the process, Ross was accommodating, professional, and easy-going. He answered any questions I had, and did his best to reassure me that any difficulties would be smoothed over, or otherwise addressed. He seems to be quite knowledgable on the subject matter, and tries to explain any industry jargon to a layman such as myself. I'm appreciative that he took the time to accommodate some of the requests that I had, as well as taking an occasional off-hours or weekend phone call. I feel like he did a great job, and would recommend him to anyone in need of a Realtor." - Jeremy

"Our experience with Ross was awesome. He went above and beyond to help us get our house sold. Ross always answered my emails or text messages promptly. I would highly recommend him to any of my friends that need a Realtor. Thank you so much for making the sell of our home extremely easy and stress free." - Penny B

"Ross did an excellent job advising me and then getting my house sold. I would definitely recommend him to my friends. He explained the process well, prepared a solid market estimate (even though I initially thought it was a little high, we got a full price offer) and helped negotiate a few difficult terms with the buyers. He also stepped in to help with a misunderstanding on one of the settlement documents that I especially appreciated. A job well done." - Barbara H

"We just sold and bought a new home with the help of Ross Speed. Ross was awesome! He was always available for any questions and made this experience such a positive one for our family. He not only sold our home in 2 days but we closed on our new home in 21 days! Ross is the best, I would recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell their home. Big thanks to Ross for taking care of our family! " - Stephanie M

"First of all, Ross is great at what he does. One of the things that stands out is his very quick response time to phone calls missed. If he is unable to take a call right away, he calls back very soon, unlike 90% of persons. That is very impressive. Ross is very knowledgeable and was able to answer all our questions. If I were to hire a new sales agent Ross would be the perfect person to do the training. His negotiation capabilities are outstanding. He got what we wanted and it had to be difficult to do. Ross is always prepared to provide documentation or information right away. His ability to anticipate needs of clients is very helpful for him and adds to his doing a very good job. It was a true pleasure working with Ross and we hope to see him again. We will not hesitate to refer Ross to anyone we know looking for a real estate agent." - Amos F

"This is the best agent I have ever had the pleasure of working with, not once but going on 3x. He will go WAY above and beyond for his clients, and has the most professional attitude you will find in business today. If you choose him as your agent you will get the best sales price for your home or the best purchase price for the home you are buying. You cannot find another guy that will do this for you!" - Lisa H

"Ross exceeded our expectations. We have already referred his name to friends and family and will continue to do so. As you probably already know, Ross is awesome at what he does. His best trait is his ability to negotiate. He is prompt to either answer calls or return calls. This is also wonderful and keeps customers at ease. He answers all questions right away with enthusiasm. We sure enjoy working with Ross as he also found the apartment we are in while we wait for our new home in Sun City to be built. It is a pleasure working with Ross and we will stay in touch with him as he will also be involved with our new home closing." - Amos & Dixie F

"Ross was fantastic. He was a huge help through the selling and buying process and worked his butt off to get us exactly what we wanted on both ends. I would highly recommend him to anyone." - Chad J

"My husband and I would most definitely recommend Ross to anyone that is looking in the greater Austin area. We were very impressed with his professionalism. He truly helped in guiding us to our ultimate goal. We thanked him many times for going above and beyond from what we were expecting. We wish him well and look forward to contacting him the future for any of our real estate needs." - Julie H

"Ross did a fantastic job! He was so helpful throughout the entire process. We would definitely recommend him to our family and friends." - Stephanie F

"Ross went above and beyond his job to insure that the sale of our home went well and painless. He was also our realtor for the purchase of our new home. We had our house built and he called us during the build to ensure that everything was going to plan and if it wasn't he would step in to get things done. He is a great realtor and a great guy! He will be the only realtor for this family! I would recommend him, he will not let you down!" - Sheila P

"We recently sold our house in Round Rock. We worked with Ross Speed who did a fantastic job! Ross was very professional and got things done in a quick and efficient manner. He was very personable and a delight to work with. You can tell he has a lot of experience in this field/market and made our selling and buying of a new home a great and easy experience. I would recommend Ross to EVERYONE looking to buy or sell a home." - Jasmine S

"My husband and I would most definitely recommend Ross to anyone that is looking in the greater Austin area. We were very impressed with his professionalism.

"Ross was great. He helped us out big time the day before closing. There was a little issue that came up with the lender at 3 the day before. We were told we weren't going to close at 9 but Ross made it happen. I hope to never move again but will refer Ross to all friends that are moving.

Ross sold a house for us after we bought the new house. It was very smooth, best house selling experience I've had.

Hard to imagine a better agent than Ross.
" - Jeff P

"My wife and I recently worked with Ross Speed in purchasing of a new home and leasing our previous home. Ross was absolutely fantastic throughout the entire process. Every step of the process was coordinated and planned seamlessly. Any questions we had were answered right away—and honestly. The process of buying a home can be extremely stressful, having Ross guide us through this was a huge help. I would highly recommend working with Ross for any future real estate needs. I certainly will." - Tiel R

Thank you Ross." - The McLaughlins

" - Lisa H

"Ross Speed is the best realtor we have worked with. Before finding him, we had met with several other realtors and were not satisfied what so ever. Ross’s communication and connection with us and all others involved in the transaction of selling our house and buying the Pulte home was above and beyond. We could see that he genuinely cares for his clients and it is shown in all his hard work from sensitivity to honesty. There is not one complaint we have towards him and are and will continue to refer him to all friends, family, or just random people we meet looking into the home market. He is the ideal representative and this company is very blessed to have him." - Jocelyn L

"Ross was professional and also kind. He has a great personable demeanor. He always went above and beyond. We will definitely use him in the future." - Sheila P

"From the very beginning of meeting Ross he had exemplified excellence. He is punctual, articulate, compassionate and just a joy to be around. He is very knowledgeable of all components of real estate and I felt completely comfortable following his expertise. There were times during this process I became discouraged and passive but Ross immediately jumped in and encouraged me to continue looking and searching for our family home, until we found the perfect one!

I would recommend Ross (and I will) to anyone needing real estate assistance and we are so blessed to have him as our family realtor." - Alysian Thomas

"We are lucky to call Ross Speed a personal friend and privileged to call him our realtor!

Being a first time home-buyer was a pretty big deal and scary at the same time. My wife already knew what she was looking for and Ross seamlessly helped everything come together. Whether it was walking the lots with us and trying to determine the perfect place to build or advising us through the closing of our new home. He was always there to help if you had a question or concern, no matter how big or small.

Ross is an exceptional and very dedicated realtor that understands your wants and needs and, most importantly, how to get you there. He will not hesitate to go above and beyond to help you and we would highly recommend Ross to anyone in the Austin area looking to buy or sell a home.
" - Brian & Madison

"Ross is awesome, he never pushed us into a house, even if he would have made more money. We never felt pressured by Ross. Ross called me back even when I called him multiple times per day. He was always honest, I appreciated his honesty the most." - The Guerrero Family

"Ross Speed is an excellent Realtor! He was very pleasant to work with and treated us like we were a team. He was very patient with us when we had questions or concerns regarding the selling of our first home. His attention to detail was great and he kept us informed every step of the way. We went into the selling and buying process very nervous and unsure of what to do, but Ross took great care of us!

We recommend Ross to anyone that is ready to sell or buy a home! You will not be disappointed!" - The Munoz Family

"It became time to buy a bigger house as we found out that our family was expanding. We were introduced to Ross as part of D.R. Horton’s move up program. It became quickly apparent that he was the right man for the job. He came into our home with information, recommendations and a strategy for selling our existing home, and more importantly made my wife and I feel like we were with “family”. His qualifications and experience are second to none, and Ross has the ability to connect with what people need and understand what they want. His biggest asset is not what he knows (which is a lot about the housing market)…it is about taking a client’s wishes and dreams, and turning them into a reality. If you are ready to buy or sell a home, Ross Speed is someone that needs to be in your corner.

In the short time that we worked with Ross we have found him to be honest, reliable, hard working, conscientious and courteous.

Ross will have a plan for you and your family. Please give him the opportunity to serve you as well as they did my family.
" - The Torres Family

"This is to express our heartfelt appreciation to Ross for his helpful efficiency and cooperation on selling our house, and helping us buy our new home that we built! We’ve bought five homes in the last six years and Ross has been the best person to work with! Ross, thank you again for all your help!" - Sam & Andrea
