My wife and I were living in Pittsburgh, PA, and saw Ron's highly informative site on the Web. We really wanted to find something in Brisbane, but there was nothing available in our price range when we arrived in the area, so he found us a number of listings in nearby areas that a similar feel to what we wanted. When the house we ended up buying came on the market in Brisbane, Ron did an outstanding job of facilitating the negotiations with the previous owners and getting us to a deal we were all happy with. We've been in the house ever since. We're very happy with the house, with living in Brisbane, and Ron will definitely be our first choice for an agent if we ever decide to sell it.

Thank you very much! Marketing on the web in the late 90's was rather new. I'm glad you found our little town.
Bought a Single Family home in 2004 for approximately $800K in Brisbane, CA.
Ron and his family live in and support Brisbane as a community. When looking in Brisbane for a home we met Ron several times and always felt that he was professional and straight forward with the property and it's surrounding area. I would list my home with Ron if we were to sell.
Found a tenant for a Single Family home in Brisbane, CA.
I've known Ron Davis for over 20 years and find him to be an outstanding member of this beautiful country community of Brisbane, California. Ron is extremely knowledgeable in the field of real estate; he's honest, accessible and dedicated to helping his clients. Over the years, Ron has found three wonderful tenants for my legal in-law unit. All of my tenants stayed at least 5 years, paid their rent on time and were clean, quiet and responsible neighbors. They arrived as strangers, yet they left as friends who still keep in touch. Not only is Ron the best in all facets of real estate, he is an excellent judge of character and has provided me great tenants. I have recommended Ron Davis Real Estate to friends and will continue to do so.
I've known Ron Davis for over 30 years, watched his development as an agent and broker and formation of his own Real Estate office. He has acted on my behalf in both areas. In purchase of property in San Francisco with partners
involved Ron was able to sort out the different interests and resolve differences.
He is creative and intuitive when it comes down to getting the deal done. His
follow through with paperwork allowed me to do what I did for living as I could trust his expertise and handling of transaction. He helped me buy and sale property in the past and will be my broker in the future. I recommended him to business associates and friends in the past and he continues to be their exclusive
broker. I tell everyone that you can trust Ron Davis,"he works for you!"
Bought a Single Family home in 2008 for approximately $600K in Brisbane, CA.
Ron Davis helped me with the purchase of two homes over the past 10 years . He is a great person to have on your team - responsive, knowledgeable and resourceful. He knows about mortgages, contractors, home construction, real estate values and trends. He knows how to show your house in the best light and what to look for in a home you are considering for purchase and what will work in today’s market. When my second house closed he threw a housewarming and whipped up some awesome margaritas - how many real estate agents take that kind of personal pride in their work? Ron also takes pride in his community. He hosts the annual Halloween portrait fundraiser for the elementary school at his cafe/office. He does what he can for the community and his involvement makes him an even better agent because he knows what is going on. But you are probably looking at this review because you need a good agent. He gets the deal done.
As first time home buyers my husband and I were very inexperienced with the process of buying a home. Ron was patient and supportive throughout the whole process. He took his time to explain the ins and outs of paperwork and the process of qualifying for a home loan.
We had our eye on a particular fixer-upper in the neighborhood and Ron was able to get us in to see the house before it was open to the public because he knew the current tenants very well. It made such a difference choosing a realtor who was familiar with Brisbane!
Ron stood buy us when our loan fell through the first time and we had to wait 2 months before we could start the process again with FHA. In the end we got the house we wanted and we couldn't have done it without Ron.
