CVC Investor Appreciation
“When it comes to investing and financial advice there are loads of companies that talk a good game, but CVC made it happen at a velocity that exceeded my expectations. In two short years, they have educated me, coached me, and given me the confidence to invest my life savings with them - knowing it is being looked after as if it were their own personal funds. The predictability and consistency in performance has enabled me to follow my path to a secure retirement without the worry of stock market fluctuations or risky financial institution choices. I have peace of mind knowing that my financial future is in experienced, trustworthy, and safe hands.”

"In 1975, a friend of mine referred me to Bob Davidson as I needed a good CPA/bookkeeping service for my small business. I immediately liked Bob and he inspired confidence. Over the years, he put together some limited partnerships (now LLCs) in commercial buildings and I invested some of my modest savings in these projects. Then Bob discovered Multifamily in the Midwest and the rest is “good” history. My modest funds have grown beyond my imagination and the advice Bob has given on all my financial investments has served me quite well. Many of his early CPA clients (and family) became investors of Canyon View Capital - I think that is a good indication of the faith people have had in Bob. Hard not to become friends with Bob Davidson, he is one of those honest, trustworthy people and he has hired the same type of people to help run the organization. The one concern that I and others had was what would happen at CVC if Bob should no longer be able to lead the fund - who would run the business and manage my money? He took these concerns seriously and pursued hiring a team to carry on the business should he not be able to do so. Both Gary Rauscher and Alison Ruday are competent leaders whom I have come to trust in their ability to lead the organization and the funds, and appreciate their integrity and care for the investors. They both bring different, but needed, skills to the business with Gary being a CPA (like Bob) and understanding the financial/tax aspect of the business and Alison having the corporate, interpersonal and leadership skills. They are a good team. All my questions are always answered timely, honestly, and professionally. I have had the benefit of watching the firm and funds expand and the hiccups that come with growth. That growth has allowed staff to be added with more specialized skills which benefits all the investors. I feel confident CVC is well run and will continue in this manner for many years to come."

“I have known Bob for almost 40 years. He was a regular patron at a restaurant I worked at the time. It was simple – Bob became a trusted friend, as he did with many who are still investors with him. We bicycle together and for years we have spoken of his passion for boating, flying, and traveling and his love of Real Estate. I knew nothing about Real Estate but Bob became my entrusted finance advisor and CPA. Over the years, his trustworthiness, ethics, diverse knowledge, and willingness to explain the more complex aspects of real estate finance made it a natural decision for my wife and I to invest with him when he started the initial investments that now make up Canyon View Capital. He has instilled these qualities in everyone at CVC. I have become friends with both Gary and Alison and always feel welcome, respected, and cared for by this team. They are honest and transparent- even when the information is not always glowing. All my questions are answered and phone calls/emails are always responded to by the CVC team. When I transitioned from the restaurant business into medicine, I continued to follow Bob’s recommendations and his plan. When he “retired” from the CPA business his partner Derek Fohs took over and I have been just as happy with his advice as my CPA for many years – another great display of Bob’s ability to find and foster good, solid, smart people in his businesses. Everything was going great. Then 2008 hit and everyone took a hit. Bob made it right after years of staying the course and creating what is now a highly successful investment firm, CVC. As I get closer to my retirement, I feel confident of who is handling my funds and knowing the team he has assembled to run the organization foster the same ideals and values Bob built the company on. Bob has never wavered from the guy I knew many years ago. I have always trusted he and his team as ethical and working hard for the betterment of CVC – their investors and employees. It has been a great friendship and investment decision for us.”

“We have been observing the development of CVC since 2008, and have been active investors since 2011. We have found Canyon View Capital to be easy to communicate with are very responsive to our questions and requests for information. The single issue that we feel makes the philosophy and management of CVC above that of other investments we have had, is their ability to focus and build on their strengths. The benefits to be realized from repeating successful property acquisitions and operations management are obvious. The main focal point for us comes in building predictability and security in our retirement vehicle. We realize every investment carries some degree of risk, but something as basic as supplying a roof over your customers head seems pretty low risk. The Midwest/Midsouth area of the country is foreign to most west coast folks from a real estate perspective but CVC understood early on the opportunity that existed there, then built their entire investment strategy around that area - we have benefited from their foresight.”
Dale & Becky Riddle, Investors since 2011 April 15, 2017
“Investing with CVC has been the most satisfying experience we have had in years. Their entire staff is knowledgeable, professional, and dedicated to serving their investors.”

CVC/CVP Employee Appreciation
"This company's senior leaders have truly showed that all employees are appreciated and recognized for their dedication and hard work. Our CVC retirement program is a perfect example of this. I feel proud and thank David Smith, my Regional Manager, for giving me the opportunity to call Canyon View Properties my home. Thank you so much!"
Penny Doshie, Property Manager, The Fountains at the Ridge, Kansas City, MO June 16, 2017
"You know your job is great when you look forward to Corporate visits! A positive aura surrounds Gary, Bob, Alison and Nikki - that type of impact cannot be done with words alone. Canyon View Properties (CVP) has been an amazing company to be a part of. I truly feel fortunate and proud to a part of this growing company. I’ve gained more skills and great experiences from the CVP family, not only locally but throughout entire company. My KC Regional team is phenomenal - David (our Regional Manager) has done a great job putting this team together! His calm demeanor and to rationalize is always a blessing. CVP continuously shows generosity to their employees. The recent “All Employee” meeting was highly anticipated but we had no idea the announcement would leave the room speechless. Our Founder, Bob Davidson, presented his “gift” to all employees - sharing his empire with the employees was the most kind and generous act I’ve witnessed. Words can’t express my admiration for CVC Management team. It’s a great feeling to know your hard work and dedication is noticed and appreciated."
Michelle Johann, Property Manager, Woodlake Village, Independence, MO June 16, 2017
“I have been with Canyon View for a little over a year now and enjoy all the benefits they provide their employees, including healthcare and a bonus plan. Recently, we have an all employee corporate meeting and the founder introduced a new Employee Benefit plan that made me realize how much Canyon View truly cares about their employees. The company has a real “family/team/owner mindset” and encourages us to support one another everyday making our region the very best it can be. I look forward to being a part of Canyon View’s future and am grateful to be a part of this company.”
Brandon Robinson, Property Manager, Trails at the Ridge & Summit Pointe August 21, 2017
“Canyon View Properties/Canyon View Capital is an amazing company to work for, they really care about customer service and their employees. I have been here since 2014 and I have always felt very cared for as an employee and person since the beginning. They are very much involved in every aspect of every property. Bowen Tower is a Senior Independent Living Community and we work to maintain the morals of great service to the Residents- these are the strong beliefs of Canyon View. What stands out to me are the personal visits by the owners during the year where both residents and employees get to see and speak with them. Their open-door policy, accessibility, and correspondence with everyone within the company gives a comforting feeling to all employees making us feel important and heard. TI feel a “sense of importance” from our management team for every individual at our company. They offer educational opportunities for advancement, provide great benefits, and the communication between every employee throughout the States is strong. It is a wonderful place to work!”
Marlina De Le Torre, Property Manager, Bowen Towers August 21, 2017
“I love Canyon View Properties for many reasons. They really show and share their appreciation for their employees and strives to help us become more successful every day. Together, we have created a positive work environment and Canyon View’s compassion for their employees was highlighted recently when representatives from the corporate office visited each region and personally presented a new employee benefits program. The owner and founder of CVC personally set up a retirement program for our future and in return, he asked us to maintain the company’s core values everyday while managing our job duties. This shows respect, trust, and confidence in our team and instills those same principles I have in myself already today. Whether it is a personal concern or a bigger property issue, I feel I can talk to our management team to seek a solution to help. We are treated respect, rewarding pay, solid knowledge, and resources, and now a great benefits program. If feels so great to be part of a company that relates to their employees and wants you to see who they are – and to see who you are. You’re not just another face in a company making them money, you are part of a team that strives for success through integrity and compassion. “
Cody Hayes, Assistant Manager, Leasing, Trails at the Ridge, Employee of the Quarter Q1 2017 August 21, 2017
“I came to the U.S. in 2002 and was worried about my family’s future – financially and spiritually. I remember being concerned about what type of job I could find- would it make a difference in my life? Would I be able to succeed? Would we ever have financial security? I joined Canyon View Properties in 2010 and nothing but great things have happened since then. Our company has grown continuously and recently, the “big guys” from corporate personally visited our region to share a new employee benefits program - a “Trust” for the employees. I cannot stress how impressed I am by our management team (Mr. Bob Davidson, Gary and Ali) and how moved I was emotional to realize we were cared about so much at this company. You just don’t see this very often. I no longer worry about my family’s future and I realize this “dream” is in fact, a reality. I am so grateful for what CVC has created for everyone. I am very proud to be a part of a formidable and powerful team.”
Mirta Williams, Property Manager, Southwind, employee since 2010 and CVP Employee of the Quarter Q4 2016 August 21, 2017
“I love working for this company because they not only care about their properties but also value their employees and have made sure we are taken care of. Our CEO recently “vested us” and this really shows how much the Company cares about everyone. This will make a big difference in my life personally and I know our investors will benefit from highly motivated employees. Thank you so much to CVC/CVP for “investing” in us.”
