Right from the beginning of our initial call to Rick Ruiz, his response was immediate. We were very impressed of his eagerness to help and especially his professionalism. His knowledge of the area was exceptional. Every home we wanted to see was immediate. His observation to details was very helpful. He gave us his honest opinions on all homes we visited. We are truly appreciative for all his expert advise and help. We will certainly use his business in the future.

I picked Rick to sell my house based on my research, and it paid off. He was highly rated, and I looked over the houses he had recently sold and it seemed to me they fetched good prices. When I called him, he was immediately responsive and we met the next day. He was always available for any questions, and he knew how to help me get my house in order so it could get top dollar. I couldn't be happier with his professionalism, work ethic, straightforwardness, and understanding of the market. He went above and beyond more than once, such as collecting my cable modem and returning it to Cox after I'd moved out and left town, long after he'd gotten his commission and owed me nothing further. Who does that kind of thing? If you want someone who gets things done, who answers your questions, and will get you the highest price your house can command, he's your man.

Very intelligent, prompt, and a joy to work with. He explains everything. Takes his time to answer questions, show homes that are really what your looking for instead of what he just wants you to see. Opens his office to help in anyway he can to facilitate what I was needing as far a faxing documents, etc. His office staff is great too! Very friendly and polite. I would highly recommend Rick!
Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $325K in Paradise, Las Vegas, NV.
What can I say but "Amazing"! We unfortunately don't live in Las Vegas so everything was done via email, texting, phone... He had the property listed, sold and closed escrow in a month! And sold for over the asking price! Any repairs we needed, he handled! It was the easiest process ever! I would recommend him to anyone interested in purchasing or selling. He is honest and dependable.

I sent an email to several realtors when my husband and I began our search for our winter home in Las Vegas. Rick was the first to respond, and his attentiveness and great service continued through the closing of our home in February. He was very patient and knowledgeable in regards to many things we were unfamiliar with, such as foreclosures, disclosures, HOA's, and the neighborhoods that would best suit our needs. He spent many hours with us while we searched for our home and kept us up to date on the status of our contract, via daily emails. In addition, he was able to save us a few dollars on some of the closing costs which was an added benefit. Other than the few days we spent looking at homes, the rest of our closing was done in the comfort of our home in Illinois. Rick took care of everything for us. I would highly recommend Rick for his professionalism, attention to detail, quick response and quite simply, for being a person who is trustworthy and kind.
I have done three transactions with Rick Ruiz in the last three years. Rick sold a condo and helped me purchase two other properties; a house and condo. Rick is honest, professional, and really understands his clients needs. I recommend Rick to all my friends and family.

I have worked with Rick to buy half a dozen homes over the years and he always brings his A game to every transaction. I found his ability to negotiate impressive, he managed to get things done when i was concerned that the deal might go away. I would not hesitate to recommend Rick Ruiz for anything you need done in the area of real estate.
