About Dallas

 

 

I feel like real estate is in my blood, growing up the son of a real estate agent and builder in Corning, New York. Since moving here in 1988, I’ve developed a reputation for being Winchester’s biggest fan. Now after 27 years of selling local real estate, I feel like my roots are firmly planted in this great community that has been so good to me. I’ve been inside almost every home in the area, and I rarely sell a property more than 20 miles from my house.

Winchester has so much to offer. From the Little Theater to the Apple Blossom Festival, literally hundreds of “fun runs” and marathons, the local SPCA (I maxed out on dogs and cats, but I still help them advertise) and historic neighborhood, home and graveyard tours—Winchester has it all, and I feel blessed to be a part of it. In fact, I love it here so much that my vacation home is only ten minutes from Winchester city limits! I’ve found that when you are as involved in the community as I am, real estate practically sells itself.

When I’m not selling homes, I love to travel (Greece this year, Sri Lanka next year) and give my time and energy to the causes I care about most. I also try to watch what I eat, work with a personal trainer and run the occasional marathon.

Dallas,

Our sincere thanks to you and your team for getting the house listed, under contract and sold. The three of you have been nothing but professional, helpful and kind.

Starting with you, we appreciate your knowledge, expertise and reach in this community. You’ve been so communicative throughout the process, and you sustained through my neurotic emails, texts and calls!

To Rose, who negotiated the sales contract while you were out of town (Rose, you were right again!). You knew the minds of the buyer and you were correct.

Finally, Martin, you were so helpful during the “under contract” process. You were incredibly responsive, you had the answers, you ran the process and made it so easy for us.

We are relieved to have this behind us, and we don’t want to forget the most important people who got us over the finish line!

…we’ll always be grateful that our paths crossed.

Quite simply the truth is if you want your house sold you go with Dallas Croft! We have used him twice over the last 15 years. The first time our home was on the market for two months. We listed it with Dallas and it sold within two weeks. If you need results, call Dallas!

Working with Dallas as our realtor was probably the best choice we made when we decided to sell our house and buy another. Having never bought or sold a house on the open market, we were unaware of all the stresses that were involved. Dallas and his team took great care to guide us through the process and gave us sound advice in order to sell our house quickly and within budget. He also gave great council with buying our next house. He helped us move into our dream house, so I may never sell or buy another house again, but if I do I will make sure I use Dallas Croft and his team again!

As an executive that has purchased over a dozen homes throughout the years, I found Dallas to have an expansive understanding of the market and properties. Dallas combines this capability with resources to provide extremely timely and accurate assistance throughout the entire process. 

If you are not familiar with the area and/or market, I can not think of a better choice in people and support teams to help you all the way through the process!

Dallas and I have worked together to sell several properties over the years. Achieving your real estate investment goals is not that easy in today’s market. Dallas has the experience it takes to help make your dreams become reality.

Many buyers and sellers have unreal expectations of what is really going on in the real estate market. When I get unrealistic, Dallas has a special way of telling me what I need to hear, instead of what I would like to hear.

He works hard to stay on top of what is going on. I believe everyone needs a man like that on their side when making decisions about what could possibly be their largest investment ever. We will together again in the future.

It is a pleasure to recommend you to anyone who has any sort of real estate needs.  Your help with the rental of the Willow Lawn cottage was phenomenally quick and easy – I thought that was great….  But then the sale of that unit was even quicker, glitch-free and definitely one of the best transactions I have ever been involved in.  Your efficiency and knowledge is an asset that is is so important to your clients and much appreciated.  Mostly heartily, I would recommend you and your firm to anyone.

Thank you so much!

Thank you Dallas for making our last buying experience “seamless”.  You were always informative and responsive throughout the process and it is wonderful to work with a professional who “gets the job done”

Dallas Croft is the best realtor I have ever used.  He has sold two homes for me at a price that I never thought I would get, and so quickly.  He and his team keeps you updated each week, answers any questions or concerns you may have and stays in close contact through to the end of the sale.  Would never use anyone else!!!!!

We are writing this endorsement due to our complete satisfaction with Dallas Croft (and his support team) serving as our realtor in our recent home sale.

Dallas is very detail orientated and understands market conditions.  He was on top of all aspects in getting our home sold.  He scheduled all meetings and interactions at our convenience after work hours and on weekends, if needed. He provided us with outstanding advice about how to prepare our home for sale and ensured we paid close attention to detail in the total presentation of our home.  He worked hard, illustrated a great understanding of contract details and ensured we received a fair price for our home.

Due to the slow market, the sale took longer than anticipated, Dallas helped mitigate and manage our expectations. I am confident that the reason we were able to keep negotiations on track after a home inspection was due to his expertise and experience with local vendors. We really appreciated Dallas’ calm reassurance and expert advice throughout the entire process. Dallas was the outstanding professional that we will use again in all future real estate transactions within the Shenandoah Valley region.  We not only recommend Dallas, we can say with great certainty that it would be foolish not to have him represent you.

Our family first began working with Dallas Croft/ERA OakCrest around 2000. Over the years Dallas has not only helped me but my daughter and parents to sell and buy homes. This summer Dallas listed my mother’s home which sold in two weeks and helped me and my mother buy a new home. I would never consider calling anyone other than Dallas to list a home or to buy a new one. He is and has always been more than helpful and there is no agent more knowledgable about the area. Dallas has the knowledge and integrity that is highly appreciated. He is always there to answer any questions. Not only is Dallas there and available at any time but his staff is also always available to help. Your phone calls are returned immediately. He and his staff are true professionals and make the entire process simple and smooth. He makes selling or buying a property a fantastic experience. I would most definitely recommend Dallas to anyone, family or friends looking for real estate in the area. There is no one better!!!

It was a pleasure working with Dallas Croft for the sale of my house.  With my initial listing agent, I had only email communication for the two months my house was listed.  Even the offer we received and negotiated was done through email.  There was no personal contact and I never saw the agent after the papers were signed.  When that offer fell through, I changed to Dallas and the difference was night and day.  We got feedback through telephone calls after every showing; Dallas stopped by the house several times to make sure everything was ready and to offer encouragement about the sale.  In less than 2 weeks, we got another offer, and this was presented in-person by Dallas. After discussing the offer and agreeing on a counter-offer, Dallas called the other realtor right from our house and made the offer.  Within an hour, the offer was agreed on.  Since we had already closed on our new home in Georgia, we were not present for the closing of our house in Winchester.  Dallas made sure all the paperwork was handled, and the closing went off without any issues.

If you want personal, professional service with constant communication, I highly recommend Dallas Croft as your realtor.

Dallas Croft was very friendly, professional, and experienced in the real estate market.  Dallas presented our home extremely well on various sites and we received an offer in a few days at full price.  It was a great experience selling our home and we would recommend Dallas Croft to any buyer or seller.

Dallas,

Thanks for supporting our relocation from Virginia to Texas as the selling agent of our Virginia home.  We greatly appreciate all your efforts,  going above and beyond expectation  during the process by being available at the home to contractors while we were away and taking the extra care to ensure our property was secure during those times.  Thanks for all the advice  you provided us and referrals or recommendations for craftsmen in the area as well as real estate referrals in Texas.  The service you provided surly felt like a partnership with us during our transition.  We also compliment your team members and the great support and service they provided as well.

Best regards to you and your team,

Gary and Susan White


As a Realtor you are the best of the best. Our home sold within the first 2 weeks of listing and between you and your wonderful staff it was a very smooth process. You are a true professional that knows how to get the job done. Thank you again for being a dear friend and GREAT REALTOR.

I have had the pleasure of working with Dallas on the sale of three homes since 2007.    Dallas’ knowledge and attention to detail was invaluable to me from the listing, offer and closing process.   Dallas also was my realtor in helping me purchase a home after each sale.  Dallas and Martin (who works with Dallas) were always available to me for any questions or concerns that I had.  I highly recommend Dallas to anyone who needs a knowledgeable and professional realtor.
