We just want to say thank you to you both. We have heard horror stories about Realtors that didn't understand the vision of the buyer making the purchase a home an unpleasant experience the total opposite of our story. Thank you for being warm, welcoming, honest and patient these are the attributes which allowed us to find our home.

Helping to Close 1 Chapter thru a Life Journey!
Testimonial from a client and now a friend:
We would like to thank CAL/TEX Realty for the great job they did of handling the sale of our property, I have never met a Realtor that would go beyond the call of duty at handling not only the sale of our property, but, our property was sold before there was even time to place a “For Sale” sign on the yard. They also went beyond the call of duty by helping us with personal needs at a time when we were at our lowest. They took over and assisted us with our personal needs and safekeeping of irreplaceable personal items left behind when we were unable to return to the property to pick them up. So this being said, if anyone is looking for a professional, caring Realtor, with you in mind, Ellis and Savannah Washington, at CAL/TEX Realty is the one to call.

I cannot say enough good things about Ellis & Savannah. I didn't know the first thing about buying a home, and they did EVERYTHING for me, with great enthusiasm and professionalism. They found a multitude of homes for my wife and me to consider. They cautioned us about any/everything that might have been a potential issue, as well as offered approval on what would be best for us, in every regard. Right off the bat, I felt like I was being taken care of by family, by people who were genuinely concerned w/my family's best interests. It always comes down to the bottom line, and there, as well, they scored us a great deal on our home. We are COMPLETELY pleased, and HIGHLY recommend them.

I highly recommend Ellis Washington to anyone buying or selling real-estate. Ellis is extremely professional, worked tirelessly until he found me the ideal home in San Antonio, and even followed up afterwards to make sure everything was just right. I have dealt with other real-estate agents but Ellis is definitely a cut above the others!

Ellis is very professional and is always willing to go the extra mile. He is always available to answer questions. He helped with the short sales of two of my properties and has help immensely with the management of another. I would recommend him to anyone.

Mr. Washington made the entire process of selling my California home and transitioning into my Texas home seem almost effortless. It was stress free and I really enjoyed the move. He took care of all of the details and kept everything on schedule. His calm under pressure was amazing. I will always use him for all of my real estate needs.


Dear Ellis & Savannah

I have been involved in real estate one way or another since I started as a sales agent in 1988. If I have not told you yet, I want you to know I was very impressed with all the work and extra effort you and Savanah put into our transaction. I know there are lots of good agents out there somewhere, but they seem to be far and few between. So meeting you and your wife (even if still only by phone) was a treat! I’m just sorry you’re not still here in California . Being a Broker/Realtor myself I feel I have the expertise to make the statement that “Ellis and Savannah Washington epitomize what being a Realtor is all about!” And you can use that quote in your marketing if you want! Sincerely, Stephie Lashkoff/Broker/Ace Real Estate, California .


Dear Ellis: Thank you for the great service you provided my family & I during our corporate relocation from Northern CA to San Antonio, TX You exceeded our expectations by taking the time to take "all" those photos of possible homes for consideration while we were still in CA You carefully identified our needs and helped us find our dream home here in San Antonio. What we really appreciate about you is your wilingness to go the "Extra mile" for your clients. I will greatly refer your quality of business to friends and coworkers. Your client for life,


I introduced by phone, Ellis Washington to two of my California investors. One was selling one (1) of his Texas properties in San Antonio and the other was selling Five (5) of his San Antonio properties. Low and behold, Ellis & Savannah had a fully signed Contract on one of the properties the next day, and the other five within days of putting them on the market. I was amazed. I could not believe it. I was also amazed at how professional and proficient they were, and are to work with. The two of them were hands on throughout the Contract period and at closing they went above and beyond, to make all of the parties to the transaction(s) very happy with the whole process. They made my job very easy. Ellis & Savannah are truly amazing and so easy to work with.


Ellis & Savannah were excellent in assisting us with a very difficult move. They were selling a rental property that we were living in and we needed to find another home quickly. We were very fortunate to find a home close to where we were living and Ellis jumped right in and assisted us with all the details in order to make our transition as smooth as possible. In our opinion, they went above and beyond in their duties in order to help our family. We would definitely recommend them and their company!



Ellis & Savannah,

We love your new website, but we just wanted to say thanks for helping Amy and me find a place we can definitely call home. All our neighbors can't believe the great deal we got. With all sincerity we owe that to you two. Being young first time buyers you develop a small fear....okay a big fear when buying a home, but you coached us through it and through it all we gained some new friends and a house that is looking more beautiful everyday. Thanks for working so hard so that we wouldn't have to.

We love you,


Cal/Tex Realty is your best source for real estate almost anywhere in the U.S., particularly throughout California and Texas. I only wish that I had met Ellis Washington and Savannah Elahi before I began buying property. I would have saved myself a lot of anxiety. As a mortgage professional, I have worked with Cal/Tex on numerous transactions and find them to be an excellent team to partner with. Their approach is professional, yet warm and friendly. They are knowledgeable consultants. However, they listen to what the client wants and starts there to tailor a search to provide what has been asked of them. Not the other way around! They demonstrate integrity, make buying or selling a home easy, and are among the best qualified in the industry . For any real estate need, I call Savannah or Ellis first; and they never disappoint, even if it’s something I don’t want to hear. I highly recommend Ellis and Savannah as honest, compassionate agents in this or any market, with whom you will enjoy a painless real estate experience.


We Wanted to thank you for helping us find a home.

We appreciate the time and effort you put into following up on leads that we sent you as well as sending us listings you thought we might be interested in.

In today's market place it is unusual to receive the degree of service that you provided. Most agents want you to sign on the dotted line today and loose sight of the fact that the home buyer's interest comes before theirs.

When we moved to San Antonio you folks were the only ones willing to help us fine a home to rent, other agents that we contacted were not very co-operative and did not seem to care that all we wanted to do at the time was rent.

Yet almost a year has passed and we have moved from a rental home you helped us find to a home of our own.

Cal/Tex is not an organization that acts as an order taker concerned only with making a sale but has a genuine interest in their prospective clients. And you folks really looked out for our interest when it came to closing to make sure all the paper work and figures on the HUD-1 were correct. In fact you found an error and saved us over $600 at closing.

Whether you are a buyer or seller I would recommend you use the services of Savannah and Ellis at Cal/Tex Realty.


Best Regards,

Bev and Boyd McClean

Cal/Tex Realty made the transition from homeowner to landlord as easy and stress free as I could ever have hoped for. Every aspect was handled in the most efficient and professional manner. Communication, both by phone and email, was maintained constantly through the entire process.

I shall continue to deal with Cal/Tex Realty in all my real estate transactions because of my complete faith in their service.

When we first moved to San Antonio, we found Savannah and she helped us get into a rental quickly when others gave us the runaround. 2 years later when we were ready to buy, we called up Savannah again because we never forgot how impressive she was. She and Ellis provide exceptional service and individualized attention, making themselves available at all times. After helping us find our new home, they went above and beyond to make sure we were happy and well informed. If we ever decide to sell and/or buy a new home, guess who we are going to call!
