Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $425K in Fort Collins, CO.
Ruth is the best realtor I have ever worked with, hands down. I had reached the point of working without agents because I was so frustrated by past experiences, but I will use Ruth's services again next time we buy or sell! She makes the process feel seamless and is easy to work with. Thank you, Ruth!

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $275K in Longmont, CO.
Ruth helped us buy our first home and she was terrific! She's a pleasure to work with and we'd recommend her to anyone.

Ruth was excellent and professional in all the ways you'd want - knowing the area, helping evaluate properties, and guiding us through the details of the purchase process. But I think her most important skill was how she really listened and immediately understood our wants, needs and concerns.

In particular, when the asking price for the house we bought was a little high, she did the right research to recommend an offer we could afford. Then she was able to explain that research to the sellers and convince them to accept our offer with very minor negotiation. She got us a great deal!

Sold a home in 2013.
Ruth recently assisted us with the purchase of a rental townhouse and we couldn't be more pleased. We are not from Colorado and decided to purchase a property for our son to live in while attending CSU. Our decision to purchase was very last minute and over the holidays. Ruth did an extraordinary amount of legwork on our behalf from hiring an inspector for us, getting information from the city of Fort Collins, walking us through processes for Colorado that are very different from the state we reside in, revising contracts and keeping track of deadlines. She was available to us by phone and email at all hours. We can't say enough good things about her. She was always very pleasant on the phone and we're anxious to actually meet her to thank her in person. We've talked about purchasing additional rental properties and Ruth will be the first person we contact to do so. Also we're hoping to move to the area in the not too distant future and would love to work with Ruth to find a new home.

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $300K in Longmont, CO.
Ruth was an exception agent to work with for the sale of my house. She was informative, helpful and patient as I worked through the preparation of my house for sale. She created a property specific brochure that was eye catching and explained my house very well to prospective buyers. I ended up going under contract two days after listing my property. She handled all the contract negotiations, explanation of forms, and process with exceptional thoroughness and assistance to me to understand the options and implications. I would highly recommend Ruth to assist in the sale of your home or the purchase of a new home, which Ruth also assisted me with.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $175K in Fort Collins, CO.
Working with Ruth was great. She is super friendly and extremely competent. She took time to help me narrow down exactly what I wanted (and what I didn't want). It was clear that she was fully invested in finding the perfect home for me. She was on top of all the paperwork and even found a mistake that would have cost me several thousand dollars. If you're looking for an agent that cares about her clients, then Ruth would be perfect for you.

Sold a home in 2013.
I have had the wonderful opportunity to work with Ruth on multiple properties over the last few years. She has helped me purchase 3 rental properties (single and multi-unit) as well as selling my primary residence and purchasing my new primary residence. Each property had its own unique circumstances and challenges. Ruth helped me fairly assess the properties to determine price and value as well as applicability to my own long term investment goals. Ruth is able to tailor her assessments to meet the specific needs for each transaction individually. Assessments for investment property is very different from that of personal property. She is very active in the market and understands the individual markets of each city and neighborhood. She watches the market carefully for opportunities, ones the home buyer may overlook. She is very proactive is with problem resolution seeking a positive outcome during the transaction. Ruth has many resources as well to help resolve any issues that may arise during the transaction. This ensures a smooth transaction and timely resolution. I have recommended Ruth to friends and colleagues as well. She has experience with estate sales also and understand the special needs of those situations. I highly recommend Ruth McMillen for any real estate needs and I continue to work with her for my continuing real estate investments.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $200K in Fort Collins, CO.
Ruth was great to work with, she listened to exactly what my wife and I wanted in our first home and provided a lot of great knowledge to make our decisio very easy. She was also very patient and kept on top of all the listings that fitted our criteria and was very timely to set up showings.

Ruth had great insight about the housing market as well, she provided excellent advice on when we should purchase our home for the best price and looking back, she was dead on. When it came time to buy the house she had every form filled out perfectly and knew the answer to all of our questions. When it came time to work out a deal, Ruth worked very closely with the other parties realtor and was able to understand the situation so that we could negotiate the best price possible.

Not only was Ruth very professional to work with, she was also very knowledgeable, diligent, patient and fun! Both my wife and I highly recommend Ruth as a real estate professional and will definitely be using her for our future real estate needs.

Bought a Multiple Occupancy home in 2013 for approximately $225K in Greeley, CO.
I highly recommend Ruth. She helped me find an excellent investment property in Northern Colorado. Ruth was patient, kind, meticulous and a thoughtful, pragmatic negotiator. In addition to her excellent real estate skills, she is fun to work with.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $875K in Fort Collins, CO.
Hands down I would recommend Ruth! Her knowledge of the market and incredible research skills enabled my husband and I to get an honest amount for the home we were selling and made the transition for buying the new home so easy. Ruth has excellent people skills which makes her so easy to talk to, and allows her to negotiate with other agents on a very professional friendly manner. She has a way of playing hard ball with a smile, which only people that can get away with that are those who know what they are talking about. Even though we were not her only clients at the time, we felt she gave us her undivided attention and a 120% effort.

Bought a home in 2011.
My husband and I have worked with Ruth on the purchase of two homes, Ruth also very generously gave us excellent advice when we were making a purchase of a property listed by owner, even though she knew her advice wouldn't lead to a commission. She grew up in Fort Collins so knows the area thoroughly, she comes to every meeting on time and prepared with much more information then you thought you'd need, and she's a ton of fun to hang out with. She makes what can be a stressful process a pretty fabulous time!
