"We will forever be grateful to Ryan "The Caveman" Cave and his team of Real Estate Pros. The thought of selling our house and buying a new one had me stressed before we even talked to an agent. We had many recommendations for agents, but Ryan Cave was the only agent that we had two separate recommendations for. So we chose to call him. I immediately felt better after our conversations. Not long after, Ryan was in our home outlining and describing in detail how we should proceed. A few weeks later we had the house under contract and not long after that we found our new dream home. Our family and friends were all impressed... I am still amazed at how well it went. Calling Ryan Cave was step one and it was a step in the right direction!"by Ryan and Kristi
As the COVID-19 situation continues to evolve, The Cave Realty Team is focusing on the well-being and safety of clients, staff and families, our highest priority. We are taking measures to respond to this pandemic while we continue to serve your business needs. During this rapidly evolving crisis, we have been monitoring developments closely and are following all recommendations of the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
We remain open and operational as we’re fortunate to have the technological bandwidth and capabilities to serve our clients remotely. While the virus is proving most serious for the elderly or those with existing health conditions, we realize all of us are at risk and want to help limit the spread of COVID-19.
Day-to-day business activities continue. Our team has been working remotely since mid-March. We are beginning a slow transition to working in the office.
Here are some of the procedures that the Cave Realty Team has in place:
- Ahead of the Curve -- The Cave Realty Team always does 3D Matterports of all of our houses listed, so you can rest comfortably knowing that even though physical showings may be reduced, your home is still has an online presence and can be fully viewed online. We also encourage potential buyers to view the 3D scan prior to scheduling an in-person viewing.
- Virtual Appointments -- We are offering virtual meetings via Zoom so that we can still walk you through the process of buying or selling a home while limiting contact. We can answer questions and consult with you just as if we were in front of you.
- Photo Shoots & 3D Scans -- Appointments are being scheduled as normal. The photographers always carry hand sanitizer or soap for use before every appointment. You might also see them using disposable gloves and minimizing physical interaction. The photographers get great results even if you aren't at the shoot. As part of CDC’s “social distancing” recommendations, we are requesting that you, the seller, limit your presence at your appointment to only providing access, if necessary.
- Stagings -- In an effort to limit contact, we are still able to provide stagings with our stager during your home evaluation following CDC recommendations about best practices, including wearing gloves and maintaining social distance. For those who have self-quarantined, we are still able to provide staging feedback through the seller providing us with a detailed video of the home. We can then send you an email with suggestions for better getting your home prepared to sell when you are ready.
- Video Showings -- In an effort to limit contact and help those have self-quarantined, we are able to provide video showings of the properties that you are interested in.
- Ease of Use -- We also help with reducing direct contact by using electronic signatures for all offers, contracts, amendments.
- In Person Meetings and Showings -- For clients who are comfortable meeting in person, we observe social distancing precautions, and wear a face mask and use gloves when necessary. We ask that our clients do the same.
If you're not thinking about buying, selling, or investing, it's a great time to refinance and take advantage of the very low interest rates. We have several wonderful lenders who would be glad to help you; let us know if you'd like us to share their information with you.
Be well and stay healthy!
The Cave Realty Team
"This was our first time selling a home and it was very helpful to have a veteran realtor to walk us through the process. Ryan is extremely knowledgable about the North Dallas area, including the schools and community amenities. His entire team was professional, efficient, helpful and kind. We were especially impressed with the high quality of communication we received throughout the process; emails, calls and texts were promptly responded to and the feedback was constant. We will be using Ryan Cave's team again in the future and will recommend them to anyone we can."by John and Aimee
"Ryan and his team were without peer in selling our house. Even through dealing with some difficult inspection items, Ryan kept our spirits up and confidence high. Nicole was also very helpful and supportive throughout the entire process, especially with staging recommendations. We were able to sell our house above asking price and in a very speedy time frame. Ryan was constantly positive and upbeat, while demonstrating deep knowledge and expertise in Allen, TX real estate. I highly recommended Ryan and his outstanding Keller Williams Team. The Caveman will do you right!"by Scott and Juli
"I wanted to take this opportunity to tell you that I cannot believe I have been in my home for 4 months now and because of your team’s attention to detail and the wonderful referrals of contractors, I have never been happier with a home. The contractors you recommended were courteous, attentive, and experts in their field. They went above and beyond to help with my requests and complete them in a timely manner, offering help with any problems should they arise in the future. It is a great relief to me to know I now have a list of competent, professional and such friendly people to call on should I need them. Again, thank you for helping me into the home of my dreams."by Kathy
"Thanks Ryan...I really appreciate the wonderful job your team did in finding and purchasing my home. It was a very good and, dare I say, easy experience. Top notch all the way around."by Jason
"I STILL can't believe that this is done and that my new home is mine... It's so much more than I thought I would end up with on such a tight time line. Thank you so much once again!"by Heather
"We have used Ryan Cave to sell two houses for us in the last seven years, in two distinctly different price brackets and locations. He is knowledgeable about the current real estate market and realistic in his advise to his clients. He and his team kept us informed of interest in our house and during the actual closing process kept us apprised of all of the steps in the process. We would use his services again."by Jim and Krissa
"I wanted to thank you for all of the wonderful services you provided in assisting me to sell my home. YOU were a DELIGHT to communicate with! I never felt like I was 'left out of the loop' and I had CONFIDENCE for the FIRST TIME in a Realtor. I really appreciated all the suggestions and interest you had in MY happiness at my home being sold. Ryan...you may be a 'Caveman' to others... but you were an '8th wonder of the world' for me! I thank you for being who you are: A REAL and interested Realtor. Thanks again for all you have done...and continue to do!"by Circe
"I feel like a friendship has ended... We were given your info from Chris's father. Though hesitant, we decided to call. That was the BEST decision we made to start the selling process! We watched the neighbors next-door have their house listed for several months and thought our process would be just as long. Chris and I were SO wrong! Within just a couple of weeks... the house was SOLD! It was amazing... but it was priced just right by you (I would recommend you to price any house!)... The service you provided was above and beyond what we expected. You are #1 in our book!!! You WILL be hearing from us when we make our next home purchase. I hope you keep in touch in the future! You're the best!"by Chris & Jennifer
"Ryan was incredible every step of the way in our home selling process. He walked us through every step and even with me living 1,300 miles away during the sale Ryan made it the smoothest process my wife and I have ever gone through. We were able to sell our house after only 3 days on the market in a rough time because Ryan priced it in the perfect range to move quickly [for top dollar]. I would recommend Ryan to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the Dallas area."by Jeremy & Melissa
"Thank you so very much for dealing with me in my selling-buying process. As a home inspector for 14 years, I've met thousands, & personally know hundreds of realtors in the DFW market. I chose your team because of the considerable professionalism and knowledge you bring to the table. I appreciate your dealing with my lack of knowledge regarding the home selling/buying process -- outside of the inspection -- and not getting frustrated as I changed my mind at inopportune times. You are not just a realtor, but also a teacher and a leader. "Caveman" is practically an oxymoron, as you are definitely in substantial connection with technology; this greatly increased the timeliness of the sale. I don't know how you pulled it off, but we sold, and moved straight into my new place with only a three-day lease back, and kept my family out of temporary housing and storage containers. You and your team are amazing, and you are all appreciated."by Bruce
"This is my second time being helped by Ryan and his team. He makes it very easy to either buy a house or sell it, he is an expert in the field and will work for the best interest of the client. He definitely helped me get my house sold as I needed to sell it. You are getting the best in every aspect, customer service, knowledge, efficiency, and reliability."by JJ
"Ryan and the "Cave" team did an excellent job with the entire process. They made the entire process smooth, and enjoyable. We highly recommend him, and his team for your buying or selling needs."by Chad and Veronica
"Ryan Cave and his team are top notch! In the hottest Sellers market we reviewed homes for 4 days and were in Contract to buy our perfect home on the 5th day. Considering that the market was a very hot Buyer driven market we even managed to secure a contract with a house-to-sell contingent offer. We closed without a hitch in 30 days. We found answers to all our questions were prompt. The team was dedicated, patience, thorough, prompt, and delivered results!"by Raj and Buvana
"You and your team are so awesome and made every step of the process so easy! Thank you for taking such great care of our family and finding us the perfect home! The Cave team rocks!!"by Tiffany
"Ryan and his entire team are top notch. After a frustrating experience with a previous company, Ryan took the time to listen to my concerns and thoroughly answer all my questions. They re-listed my town home and got it sold very quickly, even while home sales and taken a significant drop in my specific area and several other very similar options where available to interested buyers in the same neighborhood. I highly recommend him and his team. You won't regret it!"by Matt
"I can't imagine working with anyone else to get you in a home that you'll love. Cave Realty has great team collaboration that will make you feel supported every step of the way. They are also very responsive and super flexible."by Analise
“I am sitting this afternoon in our beautiful new home, and have been reflecting on how everything worked out to bring us here. I can't say enough about Kristen’s professionalism, true caring nature, and extensive knowledge about everything. She brings all these qualities to the table for her clients, not just in the real estate transaction, but in the transition to their new home/community. We purchased a home from Kristen in 2019. I was given Kristen’s name from a friend of mine, and chose to use her as our realtor because she agreed to meet me on a Saturday morning for an initial consultation. That was a good indication of the level of commitment Kristen has to service. Throughout the home buying process, Kristen was extremely responsive and thoughtful in her recommendations to us – looking back, I honestly have no idea how she did it, but she made me feel as if I was her top priority at all times whenever I reached out to her. Kristen is a very service-oriented realtor. Kristen doesn't forget you once the deal is done. I have contacted her for recommendations after the house was sold, and she has always come through with excellent, timely recommendations. To this day, she always makes me feel like helping me is her highest priority. I highly recommend Kristen for your real estate transaction.”by Lisa and Jose
"I had very specific needs that didn't fit a lot of traditional homes. Kristen focused in on what I needed, and we found my home after looking at only 11 properties. I never had any trouble getting a response and did not feel pestered by the team at any point. Not only did I feel listened to, but also was provided with great advice throughout. I would have been tempted to settle for less, or offer more for what I wanted but was given sound advice about what to ask for, and how much to offer for it. We won both buying and selling and I think I ended up with a great deal on both sides."by David
"You were very clear and upfront about the whole process before we signed anything. I appreciate getting very detailed emails about the next step in the process. Selling our home with you was a very smooth process."by Jonathan and Abbie
"Sherry Clifton is energetic, knowledgeable, and a good listener. She acted on my priorities and kept in touch every step of the way."by Judy
"Walked us through every step of the way! Let us know what to expect during the entire process from beginning to very end."by Elias & Adabell
"Professional, attentive, experienced, & transparent. These are all the things one could hope for when working with a real estate agent. I’ve sold two properties with Cave Realty and I will not use anyone else. The experience was nothing short of amazing."by Jess
"Clearly Ryan knows the D/FW market and is knowledgeable on the ins & outs of the real estate world. He's very passionate and direct, which is not easy to come by in a sales person these days. Sherry was down to earth and I felt comfortable with her. She explained things so I could understand the process. Both were very patient and this process could not have gone better."by Julie
"I was not pressured. I was not ignored. Responses to calls and questions were quick. Sherry was a terrific resource for contractors. In summary the members of Cave Realty delivered what they promised."by Christina
"Thank your team for a quick, professional sale. You are organized, with specific goals in mind, and we like the way you do business. Wish I were younger, I'd come work for you! Congrats to the 'Caveman' -- you've assembled a great team of experts."by Allan and Cecille
"Ashlyn and Stephanie and the Cave Realty Team made the process of buying a home fast, fun and easy."by Evelyn and Michael
"Kristen was absolutely wonderful. She listened to what we wanted and worked to deliver it. She was never pushy and never glossed over anything we didn't like about a house to try and force the sale. It was also nice to have the entire team there to support us. I never wondered what was going on or what the next steps were. The communication from the office was great."by Bonnie and Tom
"Ryan and the entire Cave Team are the best in the business! I have had the pleasure of working with the buyer and seller teams and I have to say that each and every one of your team members are exceptional. Everyone is incredibly responsive and timely when you need something and they always are helping with a smile! The service that this team provides is unmatched by anyone in this business. They are all truly a joy to work with! Thank you to the Cave team for making my experience so perfect!"by Emily
"When I started this journey (and it is a journey!), I was attempting to work with an agent that was dismissive, negative, and highly discouraging of my efforts to purchase a home. I had such a bad experience with her and was ready to give up. My mother found The Cave Realty Team and begged me to try one more time. The Cave Realty Team was amazing. In our first meeting, Kristin was encouraging, knowledgeable and eager to tackle the challenges my needs presented. She really listened and put together a plan to tackle all of our goals. Kristen set me up with Ashlyn, my showing specialist, to take me to look at properties. I found the one I wanted fairly quickly and we all set to work as a team. They set me up with a wonderful lending team who were able to help me branch out and find the perfect product for my needs. The entire team worked diligently on getting me into my first home. When I closed, they were right there with me. I could not possibly have asked for a better experience."by Teresa
"As soon as we began working with Kristen and Ashlyn, they took note of small things we said. I remember in one house I was disappointed it didn't have a pantry, and from then on, Ashlyn called each house we wanted to look at to make sure it had a pantry. That really impressed me. Kristen was great about identifying if our concerns were genuine or if it would be a cosmetic fix. They never made us feel like our questions were stupid. I remember when we were first wanting to buy a house, but were unsure of the size of house we wanted to be in. Kristen took us around to three homes of different sizes to help us see which size would be the best fit. This showed us the level of care we were about to embark on in deciding to search for homes with The Cave Realty Team. We were so impressed with our first-time home buyer experience. Thank you for helping us through this process."by Abbey and Evan
