“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.”

"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."

"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."
