Ruby's a gem! And her team are awesome to work with. The stresses of buying a new construction home are filled so many headaches and emotion, but I can honestly say I trust Ruby, Kristi, Jim, Beau & Liz to take care of us. I'm glad we had them on our side, not just once but twice now. Their insight to the market and attention to detail, I will continue and always recommend this team. I'm sure we'll sell and buy again someday….and I won't hesitate to contact Ruby and her team. :)
Ruby helped us find a home back in 2009. Given that great experience we utilized her services again to sell our rental property near NCSU which closed yesterday! Ruby and her team were extraordinarily helpful as a seller's agent. They assessed the condition of the property, recommend repairs and enhancements that would help it sell quickly and worked collaboratively with other agents to negotiate offers. Best of all, it sold for asking price!!! I would highly recommend Ruby and her team if you are considering listing your property on the market.
Thank you so very much Team Ruby! All we can say is WOW! We were very impressed with Team Ruby's professionalism, personal attention, knowledge, communication, and recommendations. We still cannot believe our house sold so quickly and at asking price! Ruby and her Team are first class. From Ruby herself to the Stager to the Photographer to the Listing Coordinator to the Closing Coordinator and everyone else on her Team, each person was always available during the entire process. They were all so easy to work with, and we are truly grateful for their assistance. We would definitely recommend Team Ruby to anyone selling or buying a new home!
Sold a Single Family home in 2013 in Fuquay Varina, NC.
We listed our home with other agents, had showings but not marketed right. I found Ruby online and thought it wouldn't hurt at this point to try someone else. She came in and evaluated our home and told us what we needed to do. She also came in and stage the home without charging and said who would most likely buy our home and she was right. I listed it in Oct and we had an acceptable offer in Dec. thank you Team Ruby. And Liz the closing agent was very kind to deal with.
We connected, but it did not work out. Looking in North Raleigh, Raleigh, NC 27615
I have moved. I consider Ruby to be a very lovely person and a seriously competent Realtor, for someone who has the bucks and knows what they want to do. She was simply not available for me. There was not enough time on interest in helping me when we reconnected.
Actually, I need someone somewhat more able to focus on my needs. As I am a "newbie" to the Raleigh market, I won't pay cash ($250,000 to 375,000) for a home, here, until I feel comfortable with one area (over the others). There are so many places to possible areas in which to buy in and near Raleigh.
In spite of the fact I am not using Ruby, his is important to know, too. While she didn't know what I was looking for or what I would pay for it, this was (I am certain) because she had handed me off to an underling (with other interests and job titles)l.
Ruby is far more than competent (and an altogether amazing individual). Her integrity is above the crowd. In fact, she won't allow you to make a buying mistake, if she knows something you do not about an area or a property. Truth is, she is a true humanitarian, first, from what I know of her. One can not help but like her!
Ruby has a dynamic team that really cares about your investment towards the home you are looking to buy. She gives expert advices about the neighborhood and is always thinking about long term resell value.
Her daughter, Kristi is just as excellent as well. Always responses immediately to calls and open to view houses at times under a short notice.
Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $275K in Raleigh, NC.
I have the pleasure of working with Ruby and her team with the smooth process of selling our home. Our house was under contract within 5 days of listing and closing was right on schedule!
I appreciate Ruby and her expert team for helping us getting the house ready for sale with repairs, landscaping, staging, listing, negotiation and closing process. Ruby and her team have many clients and they are always professional and available for my calls or emails. Most of all, Ruby cares about us and that caring shines throughout the listing and after selling process. Thank you so much for all that you do, Team Ruby!
I highly recommend Team Ruby for high internet advertising for your home, smooth process in every step of the listing and closing process.
