"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.”

“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.”
