    Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $75K in Spring Lake, MI.

    Dave sold my mother's home, which was not in the best shape due to renters, for more than the asking price. He kept us well informed and was very patient with my mother's questions and concerns. If I was in a position to need a realtor again, I would definitely call on him.

    Sold a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $150K in Spring Lake, MI.

    I chose Dave to be my seller's then buyer's agent and had a great experience in both situations.

    Why I liked working with Dave:

    * Always available to me and would always promptly respond to email / calls.

    * Dave over communicates in order to be very clear that he understands what you want and that you understand what he advises.

    * He did not push me into homes nor did he push me away from homes. Instead he asked me how I felt about the home after each visit and let me come to our own decisions.

    * Purchasing a home is a business transaction, but some other agents treat the entire process as purely business (very impersonal and all-business). My experience with Dave while professional was also personal, he has a great sense of humor.

    *Dave uses a wide variety of tools to help give your property the maximum amount of exposure when up for sale. His marketing is very effective. In fact he put my condo up for sale on Monday, had 4 showings Tuesday and 2 offers on Wednesday!

    * Dave has a wide range of references for any area of expertise you may need, from home inspectors to mortgage brokers. All his references are professional and experts in their field

    What you look for when you choose a realtor may be different for everyone, but I can vouch that with Dave you will get someone who will do his best to help you get the home that you want or sell the one you don't want.

    Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $100K in Spring Lake, MI.

    Over the years we have purchased and sold many homes, using a number of real estate agents. Some of our experiences were less than happy. Dave Ruwe has been a great help in our selling and purchasing five homes over the last few years. His professional attention to detail and business ethic has made them all go smoothly. Our calls were promptly returned. It has been a pleasure to work with him and his organization. Paul E. Zellar

    Sold a home in 2014 in Grand Haven, Grand Haven Township, MI 49417.

    Dave Ruwe was a great pleasure to work with. He was very knowledgeable, kind, & professional. Dave thoroughly explained the whole process to us, as we were new home sellers. If we had questions, he would always get back to us in a timely manner, with an answer. I would recommend Dave Ruwe to anyone buying or selling their home.

    Bought a home in 2011 in Grand Haven, Grand Haven Township, MI 49417.

    Dave is a realtor unlike any other. He brings a genuine kindness and caring to the effort, coupled with an extensive market and trade knowledge. In this day and age if everyone out for themselves, Dave exhibited (and repeated with my dear friends) the behavior I CRAVE in the marketplace. He knows that finding what's right for YOU is the only goal. You won't regret using Dave Ruwe as your agent.

    Bought a Single Family home in 2005 for approximately $25K in Norton Shores, MI.

    Dave was great when helping me buy my house. I was new to the area and was not sure where exactly I wanted to be. He helped me find not only the perfect house, but also the perfect neighborhood location. He stayed patient with me and made this major decision an easy and stress-free one.
