TESTIMONIALS

We’re proud to be able to work in an industry where we get to celebrate the successes of our clients right alongside them. Read what our customers are saying about Ridge Pointe Commercial Real Estate. 

As a growing Commercial Real Estate Development Company it has not always been that easy working with Commercial Real Estate Brokers over the years. Last year we started looking for new sites in the Rockwall area and were fortunate to come across one of Ridge Pointe’s signs on a property we were interested in. We connected with David English over the phone and since then our relationship has grown! Through the process of working with David he has always been extremely helpful, trustworthy and dependable! We have never had to wait long for answers to questions and he always gets any problems resolved quickly. We truly value the knowledge and relationships that David has grown in the Commercial Real Estate market and would have to say in our opinion that there is nobody that knows the Rockwall County area like David English and the rest of the Ridge Pointe Commercial Real Estate Team. So if you are planning on buying, selling, leasing or looking for information on anything real estate wise we highly recommend Ridge Pointe Commercial Real Estate!

Mark Scott, Sales, Marketing & Business Development, Garages of Texas

Hi David, I want you to know what a blessing your company and Stewart have been to my business and family.  Selling the Fulton Building was difficult and Stewart was a rock for us. He kept us on a good path and the result was awesome. I highly recommend Stewart and Ridge Pointe for anyone dealing with commercial property.  Thank you and God bless

Suzan Fulton
​Rowlett, TX

I called Mr. David English in to lease a property that we had tried leasing a couple times prior. He quickly assessed the property, the best tenant fit and was able to get the asset stabilized. Once stabilized Mr. English marketed it for sale and sold our property. I’d highly recommend him and his firm for any commercial real estate needs you might have. Not only did he get it rented quickly, but he did everything he said he would during the leasing and sale process in a timely and efficiently manner.

Leobardo Trevino, CEO, Ricchi Group
Dallas, TX

As a new business owner, I could not have found a better commercial real estate partner to represent me…hard stop! David’s experience and knowledge of his industry and the Rockwall/Rowlett area are far superior than any other firms I considered. From the first meeting, David became much more than a real estate agent, acting as a mentor to me as he carefully explained the nuances of commercial real estate throughout the journey. David and his team were able to secure an amazing lease with an outstanding local developer, and I could not be any happier with the outcome. Thanks Ridge Pointe!

Jason Glenn, Business Owner
Rockwall, TX

This is the first deal I have closed with an agent that I was 100% happy with. Thank you for doing such a great job. Your advice saved me a ton of stress and time. I will let you know when we are ready for the next one.

Zachary Romans, Investor
Royse City, TX

Most knowledgable & most efficient.

John Albritton, Rockwall Attorney at Law

David made the signing of my newest location in Frisco stress free. David worked hard to get what was best for my business and stayed with me the entire way. I won’t expand again in North Texas without him!

I would like to take the opportunity to thank you for the professional service you provided FirstCity Servicing Corporation. We have provided many timing and financial challenges to you and you have consistently proved to be skilled and able to respond to our needs. Your market knowledge and unique understanding as to what we are looking for have partnered well with our organization.  I would highly recommend you and Ridge Pointe Commercial Real Estate to anyone looking for the professional real estate services you have provided. We look forward to working with you in the future.

Dustin Horn, Asset Manager, First City Servicing Corporation
Waco, TX

With the professional assistance of David English acting as our agent, Altura Homes, recently purchased 80 acres of land in Forney, Texas.  Mr. English was absolutely instrumental in getting our deal across the finish line.  He was able to negotiate several amendments to the contract of sale (on behalf of both parties) that required both experience and rock solid character.  We will continue to seek David’s market advice and conduct our land acquisitions through his company whenever possible.

David Voekel, Acquisition & Development, Altura Homes
​Dallas, TX

David has represented us on our Rockwall property for nearly twenty years.  It’s great having local representation that understands the big picture.  He has a unique ability to both network with national tenants and also to communicate effectively with local mom & pop users.  Being an out-of-town landlord, it’s very comforting to have his eyes and ears on the ground in Rockwall looking after our interests.

George Ackerman, www.benbrooke.com

David and Jeff provide the highest level of service in managing property, and do so with honesty and integrity.  They go above and beyond to make sure tenants feel cared for, and that the property is well maintained and its value maintained.  We have complete confidence that our property will be well-managed with Ridge Pointe Commercial Real Estate.

Craig A. Blumin, RBI Properties, Inc.

We would recommend Ridge Pointe Commercial Real Estate to any organization contemplating hiring a management company.  Their services are delivered promptly and professionally.  Strategic planning options are thoroughly researched.  They are always available for discussion and they tailor reports according to the client’s needs.

I am very pleased with the services of Ridge Pointe Commercial Real Estate as leasing broker for our building in Rockwall. In particular, David English is a professional problem solver, with all the capabilities needed to effectively negotiate with prospective tenants on our behalf.  Highly recommend!

Marlin R. Smith, Attorney at Law
​Rockwall, TX

Best place ever for a commercial broker. David English is professional, prompt, responsive and very sharp. He leased a property for us and it was only vacant for one month. We were very pleased with the results. We’ll definitely hire him again.

Heather Cullins, Commercial Real Estate Investor/Landlord
Rockwall, TX

I am very pleased to be able to share my experience regarding David English and Ridge Pointe Commercial Real Estate as our leasing broker in Rockwall. David was everything I could have asked for as I was new to my position and an out of state owner’s representative. David is very knowledgeable in the local leasing markets. David was able to assist in finding a locksmith (that I now use for all 4 of my properties around Dallas), a handyman, and other listing agents on those 3 other properties that are not under David’s preview.  I will absolutely recommend David English and Ridge Pointe Commercial Real Estate to anyone looking for a real estate professional.

Margo Foster CPM, RPA, Property Manager, MGR Assets, Inc.
​Danville, CA

David and I have been working together since 2009 and I have nothing but great things to say about my experience with Ridge Pointe.  In thinking back over those years, there are many examples I can think of that make me treasure my relationship with David, but I think the best and most important is David’s overall knowledge of the market. As a developer and owner of commercial retail property, David’s firm grasp of the market allows us to determine real opportunity in the marketplace. He never “over sells” you. You only get what is real and backed by market knowledge.

Doug Florence, Briarwood Capital Corporation
​Dallas, TX

David English and the Ridge Pointe Commercial Real Estate team provide exceptional service. Experience clearly runs deep and David always provides clear and honest counsel in negotiations. David’s experience also provides an incredible resource for the local real estate market. The team communicates in a timely manner and it is evident they are committed and driven to serve their clients.  I highly recommend David English and Ridge Pointe Commercial Real Estate.

Michael Kersey, Commercial Real Estate Investor/Landlord
Heath, TX

Ridge Pointe Commercial Real Estate has made a significant difference in our office building. They have a commitment to provide the highest level of professional service to our tenants. With strong leasing skills and quality management, our building has always maintained a high level of occupancy and at market rates. They have excellent execution and always an awareness to minimize and control expenses. I highly recommend Ridge Pointe to anyone looking for experience in both the management and leasing of your property.

Bob Bowman, General Partner, Rockwall Commons, LLC

David, it gives me great pleasure to call you one of my good friends, as well as one of “the real good guys” in our real estate industry. We have been friends for a long time and we have know each other for at least 30 years. We were partners for about ten years and we had a great partnership with Corrigan, Collier’s and UCR. We are still partners in a few real estate deals and I would trust you to make decisions for me in connection with the properties that we still are partners in if I was not able to make them on my own. I know that you would make the right business decision and would not only exhibit your vast knowledge and experience but you would also do this with a high degree of integrity and morals.  When I think of you David I am reminded of a little expression that I learned from one of my restaurant contacts and that is “Do Right and Fear No Man”. You always try hard to do the “right thing” no matter what the situation is—even if may not be the best decision for you financially.

Greg Pierce, Senior Vice President, CBRE/UCR, Brokerage Services, Retail
Dallas, TX

We contracted with David English at Ridge Pointe Commercial Real Estate for a site search to satisfy specific requirements for a client. David’s asked all the right questions and that resulted in a targeted list of land sites that fit what we are looking for. David’s local knowledge, industry experience and transparent approach resulted in a win for us.

Stephen Doyle, Principal, Structured Real Estate
Chicago, IL

Ridge Pointe CRE and David English are your perfect partner for any commercial real estate needs. David and I have known each other for many years and recently got a chance to work together on a significant lease project. David’s knowledge and understanding of the space, the market and us as a client really helped us expedite the process to completion. David and his team were there every step of the way, with answers to our questions and helping us push to meet our aggressive time line
