After our mother passed away, my sister and I were left to decide what to do with her home, either keep it in the family or sell it to someone that hopefully would love it as much as Mom did. After much deliberation, we came to the conclusion that neither of us were in a position to move that far from work and would unfortunately need to sell. We knew this meant that we would need to go through a home packed full of memories stuffed throughout all three floors of Mom’s dream home, shed, and outbuilding. Needless to say, we were both overwhelmed. My sister remembered Dallas from more than 20 years ago when he assisted our parents with a move. Although we were much younger, we both recalled how kind Dallas was and how both Mom and Dad praised his professionalism at that time. We reached out to Dallas, who agreed to meet us in just a few days’ time. During that visit, he not only expressed his condolences, but provided the direction needed to move forward. He understood that it would take time, but wanted to ensure we had the resources needed to accomplish the task at hand.
During that initial visit, Dallas put us in contact with a professional organizer/cleaner to assist with the donation of unwanted items and the cleaning of the home to get it ready for showing. He also advised us on some minor repairs that could assist with the curb appeal. Once the home was officially on the market, we were notified via text regarding each new showing. The foot traffic was amazing and we soon had a valid offer. It was at this time that we were able to work with Martin in Dallas’ office. The buyer wanted several items corrected before agreeing to the sale. Again, not knowing where to turn, Martin stepped in and advised that he would handle everything and just with those few words, he took away all the pressure and stress. Martin was nothing short of amazing. He coordinated roofers, pest control, septic and water inspections. All we had to do was approve the work and Martin handled the rest. Each step forward, Martin was there to ensure we knew where items were in the process.
Overall, I can’t say enough about Dallas and his team. He was there at the beginning of the process and each step of the way thereafter. I felt as though I had my own expert team working with me to ensure a successful outcome. I would encourage anyone ready to buy or sell within Dallas’ service area to use his team. I can assure you that you will not be disappointed.

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.

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,

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.

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.

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!!!

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.

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!!!!!
