"Clay is amazing! He's dedicated, thorough, and thoughtful. He did a really good job of giving us the market landscape and insight without being pushy. He's an invaluable resource in your house hunt. We'll definitely use him again (if we ever leave our dream home!)."

"We are so thrilled to have worked with Clay! The process can be daunting as first-time home-buyers, but Clay took all of the mystery out of the process and walked along side us step-by-step. From showing us 10 houses in one day to coordinating all of the post-buying inspections, Clay was more helpful than we could have imagined. We would work with Clay again and again and couldn't recommend him any higher."

"I cannot say enough good things about working with Clay! As first time home buyers, we had a lot to learn. Clay was so helpful through every step of the process and patiently explained to us anything we were confused about. Whenever we looked at houses, I truly felt like Clay cared about our wants and needs, never pushing us to make a decision without careful thought. Clay showed us he was as invested as we were through careful research and constant attentiveness. On top of all that, Clay helped us find an amazing house in the Mid-Cities and has stayed in touch with helpful reminders about tax exemptions and other home ownership aspects. We have and will continue to recommend Clay to anyone looking to buy a house in the DFW area!"

"My fiance and I could not have had a better experience buying our first home! Clay was extremely knowledgeable about the area and helped us hone in on what we were looking for! He was quick to respond, whether to an email or text, and he would always take the time to walk us through the next steps or help answer my (many) questions. We would highly recommend him for anyone starting out on their home buying experience for the first time or even a more experienced buyer."

"Clay listed & sold our downtown Dallas loft, helped us find & buy our first house all while we had our first child. The process would have been so stressful if not for Clay. He was knowledgeable about the down town Dallas area loft market and helped us price our loft competitively. We ended up attracting a committed buyer within close to two months. When a potential buyer unconventionally dodged signing a contract with with us, Clay’s diligence saved us from from missing any significant time on the market. Clay made sure we were in control of all decisions and was respectful when we chose a direction that he discouraged. Clay provided clear, succinct feedback on each option we considered. We were impressed frequently with how available and flexible Clay was to best assist us. Clay consistently followed up with us, and still does after the fact, with direction and care while giving us plenty time to deliberate on our own. We never felt Clay was out of the loop according to knowledge of the process. In negotiations Clay was thorough, concise, and forward thinking. I couldn’t imagine working with another realtor with this latest big step in our life."
