Why we work by referral

This model is all about trust and let’s face it when we are seeking a service, we look for someone we can trust – someone proven, who comes highly recommended and is already on our side. We enjoy that same loyalty from our clients.

Relationships are far more important to us than transactions

We dedicate ourselves fully to the activities that benefit you most and always deliver truly exceptional service vs. cold marketing tactics.  We’ve never made a cold call, and we never will.

You control our business

We are interested in working hard for a village of like minded people.  We know that we must earn your future referrals, so we aim to exceed expectations thru a high degree of accountability.  In fact, we want you to be so fired up, you can’t wait to tell the awesome people you look out for about us!

Our Team


  • ”Ryan and Olive Tree Real Estate Group has helped our family and business in numerous ways.  He has referred new tenants to my office building, helped my oldest daughter with a leased house and has given me innumerable advice on our home.

    In all our dealings, Olive Tree has been highly responsive with sound advice.  Their completely candid and straight shooting approach focuses on their clients’ needs not on how fast they can turn a sale or how much commission is generated.  Plus, all their business is conducted with a pleasant attitude!”

    Don Rainwater | President, Southwest Incentives
  • “When I decided to begin my home search in the Canyon Creek neighborhood, I asked several friends who already lived in the neighborhood who I should work with. Every time, without fail, Ryan was the first recommendation. Once I found the house that I was interested, Ryan provided candid feedback on the pros/cons of the house from an agents perspective, as well as guidance on what improvements could be made to provide the biggest return towards the value of the house.

    Buying a house is one of the biggest investments one will make in their lifetime, so making sure you have the right person to represent you is critical. Without hesitation, I would recommend Ryan Kirkpatrick to anyone who asked.”

    Joel Huff | Technology Sales Manager at Oracle
  • “I want to say Thank You to Ryan and the Olive Tree Real Estate Group for listening to my needs and for guiding me in the purchase of my first home in Prestonwood. Thanks again for showing me what is like to work with a strong capable agent when others had failed me. My experience with the big companies was neglect and incompetence and working Olive Tree helped me understand customer service at an entirely different level. I will be referring others your way when the opportunity comes along!”

    Daniel Askari | Dallas

  • “Wendy and I want to thank you for all your hard work and support on getting us into Prairie Creek. We were talking about your willingness to work with us for 3 years getting in the neighborhood and how gracious you were in every bit of the process. Since the house never came on the market, we know that without the relationship you built with the seller you and your firm would not have had the opportunity to show us this home. Thank you for building that key relationship.

    You have built a great agency and I appreciate everything you have done for us. Once again, thank you for diligently working with us to find the home that we can call our own and raise a family in.”

    Philip Martin | Ed Martin & Associates, Inc
  • “Ryan has been a great addition to Canyon Creek County Club and the neighborhood of Canyon Creek/Prairie Creek. He has helped integrate many new members of the club to become more involved and has helped convince some younger members to move into the neighborhood.

    I live one block away from Ryan and would feel comfortable using him for any of real estate needs in the future. I look forward to Ryan to helping bring more tennis players to Canyon Creek Country Club!”

    Steve Nolen | Canyon Creek Country Club
  • “I have known Ryan for a few years now.  Ryan is one of those rare people that you meet that truly cares about his commitments and people that he deals with on a daily basis.  He goes out of his way to make sure that his family, friends, and business clients are well taken care of.

    I would not have anyone else besides Ryan represent me in selling or buying a home. I would without hesitation recommend him to anyone looking for a real estate agent.”

    David Dawson | Director of Sales, Ericsson Inc.
  • “I have known Ryan Kirkpatrick for the past four years. During this time I have observed the diligent and professional manner in which Ryan has handled his business and the associates he works with. Ryan has a natural gift of leadership that is coupled with tremendous compassion, sensitivity, business acumen and a tremendous work ethic.

    I would like to personally and highly recommend Ryan and his team at Olive Tree Real Estate Group to any clients that are interested in a high touch, high quality and personalized real estate experience.”

    Jon Kelley | JSK Ventures LLC/McDonald’s

  • “I wanted to thank you for helping one of my very best friends in locating a house in the Canyon Creek area of Richardson.  As a commercial banker in the Dallas market for 30 years I have never met a realtor that provided the level of service that you did for him.  You were very responsive and took the time to show him numerous properties.  He was able to locate and close on a property within 30 days.

    I can’t thank you enough and will continue to refer my customers as I know they will be taken care of like family.  Thanks again.”

    Kevin Smith | SVP, Texas Capital Bank

  • “I want to take this opportunity to thank you for the excellent work you did for me in identifying and then handling the purchase of my home. As you will recall, I turned over to you all of the negotiations and settling on a price and you executed the tasks perfectly. I found you to be highly professional, reliable and very knowledgeable. I have had dealings with real estate brokers in the past; some capable and some lacking in skills and discipline. Without a doubt, you are the best I have met.
