Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $375K in North Raleigh, Raleigh, NC.

There's a reason that Ruby is selling houses like hotcakes in a down market - her team is GREAT. They are masterful at pricing, staging, and marketing them like no one I've seen. Sold our house in 3 days! The buyers wanted us to change out our professional gas range with an electric one, which we didn't want to do, and her team offered to handle it for the buyer. It's that tenacity that gets deals done in this market.

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $300K in Rolesville, NC.

Ruby presented the marketing literature and made a commitment to sell our home. We were advised that our initial price might be a little high, and we lowered the price accordingly. Ruby's comments to improve how the house would look during showings was important and made the difference in getting an offer. Ruby and her team advised us through the period between the Purchase Agreement and the close of the sale. Ruby and Beau (the closing agent for Ruby) helped through the frustration of a buyer that was uncommunicative and difficult, as was the buyer agent. The buyer needed additional time to close and Ruby negotiated a resolution that was good for both parties. I cannot do justice to her (and Beau's) ability to listen to my loud unhappiness about the buyer and agent, working to calm me down and work forward on the deal. Ruby has the unique trait of kind and forceful. I want Ruby's team on my side for all my future transactions.

Sold a Single Family home in 2009 for approximately $375K in North Raleigh, Raleigh, NC.

Ruby met my wife one day while in the mall, two years before we were ready to buy. Sent us polite notes from time to time-- many of which had little to do with houses, and more to do with caring. Eventually, we hired Ruby to help us buy a house. Her knowledge of the area, pitfalls of the types of homes & neighborhoods to steer clear of (and the detailed, factual reasons "why" that seemingly every other agent seems to miss), and genuine caring set her miles above our dealings with other agents. Not only did we hire her to buy our home, but also to sell it later on in a brutal economy in record time-- a feat she's duplicated dozens of times with the houses of people whose previous agents weren't able to get sold; then, in walks Ruby. Since then, we have referred numerous friends and even complete strangers we've met on the street to Ruby, and all come back with the same glowing praise of what she's done for them and for the people they've also now referred to her! Ruby is more than our agent for life. She's a loved and trusted member of our family!

Sold a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $275K in North Raleigh, Raleigh, NC.

Ruby is probably the hardest working Realtor that I have ever met. If you want your house sold or you need a honest negotiator on a new home - call Ruby. Ruby and her team are very responsive and professional.

We were with the wrong Realtor for 300 days and then found Ruby. With her honest opinions, sound advice and quick work our house sold in 45 days. I don't think there is anyone out there that will work as hard as she did for us.

When it is time to move again. I'll make one call - to Ruby Henderson.

Bought a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $500K in Northwest Raleigh, Raleigh, NC.

We are so pleased to have had the opportunity to work with Ruby. She came highly recommended to us, but even the recommendation did not do her justice. She is professional, ethical, knowledgeable, personable, and patient and she cares about people.

Ruby cares more about people then the actual sale, and in that regard she is truly unique. We’ve bought and sold two other properties before working with her and we’ve never had an agent that has as much integrity as Ruby. What surprised us the most is, each time she showed us a home she would go through the house telling us everything that she believed was wrong with the house. She would say things like, “the driveway is too steep”, “the house backs up to a major road”, “this house has a strange layout”, “if you purchase this home and decide to sell it later you will not get good resale value…and this is why…” etc. We were quite taken back by this at first, because previous realtors that we worked with never said anything negative about a home, unless we said something first, which always made us feel like the realtor really wasn’t working for us. We love her honesty.

It took us two years, but once we found the house that we really liked, she negotiated so well on our behalf. She convinced us to wait several hours before putting in a counter offer, then when we did counter, she said, "NO!" offer less, we did, and our lower offer was accepted. It lowered her commission, but again, that was not her concern. She cared about us getting the right house at the right price. She really listened to us and worked to get us what we wanted. She put our needs before her commission and that is priceless. Once we settled on price her outstanding Team went into overdrive and made sure we closed in 30 days. Ruby is the absolute best!

Sold a Townhouse home in 2011 for approximately $200K in North Raleigh, Raleigh, NC.

We hired Ruby after our current agent could not sell our home after almost a year. Ruby old it in 1 month! She was wonderful as was her staff. If you don't have her as your agent than you better call her now.

Sold a Single Family home in 2004 in North Raleigh, Raleigh, NC.

Several years ago, Ruby came to our rescue after a previous agent failed to sell our town home, and we had already purchased another home. Ruby is extremely intelligent and compassionate. And she doesn't just SAY she loves her job; she REALLY LOVES IT, and you can tell that she does. She really enjoys helping. But she's also a very savvy business woman. She will give you the truth about what your property is worth, and then she will get to work. Unlike many agents, Ruby doesn't just post your listing online and then sit back and wait for buyers to come to her. She works! If you're looking to buy or sell, call Ruby. If she doesn't pick up the phone, she'll call you back -- usually within minutes. I know that when we are ready to move again, we will definitely call Ruby. She is THE BEST!

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $175K in Cary, NC.

UPDATE: Ruby listed my home and it was sold after multiple offers in only FIVE days! If you are considering selling your home, and feel you need expert advice and guidance you would be wise to make Ruby your realtor!

In the years I have known Ruby I have purchased five houses through her and have sold two homes with her help. In addition, I currently have my home listed with her! No one knows the real estate market better than Ruby.

Ruby has the most incredible knowledge base about buying and selling. She is the exceptional agent. With her, a client knows they matter. Ruby can be counted on as she does what she does oh so well, being a multi million dollar producer!

Ruby and her team are pleasant, polite, and totally professional. All phone calls are promptly returned with appropriate information given with assuredness. Impressive...all the way around. Give Ruby a call, she gives an incredible presentation created just for you!

Sold a home in 2011 in North Raleigh, Raleigh, NC 27615.

Ruby and her team are the most "fine tuned" team I have ever had the pleasure to know. I am so thankful I was recommended to her by a friend of a friend who couldn't say enough about her. She told me exactly what I needed to do to get my house sold and with the help of her team I was able to accomplish the updates needed from out of state in a very timely and professional manner. Everyone on the team is pleasant and positive and can't do enough for you. Thank you, Karen NY
