Sold a home in 2001.
Ruth Ann is wonderful, she is extremely patient, knowledgeable, strategic, professional, optimistic, and resilient, and has the best upbeat attitude.

We have know her for 11 years now. She has helped us with many buys and sells as our family keeps growing. She takes the time to listen to both of you and what you want. She has helped us on many adventures, with finding our first home, then when when we had children she helped us find a wonderful home in a wonderful neighborhood. And now that we are outgrowing that one, she is taking on our next adventure with us.

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $200K in Aloha, OR.
The only thing we regret is not writing this review sooner! Ruth Ann is a true master in her profession. She is very insightful; her input was extremely helpful to my husband and I as we were reviewing our pros and cons of each of the homes. We feel that without Ruth Ann's assistance we would not have the house that we will be growing into for years to come. She saved the day at closing by pulling together a plan to resolve an issue during inspection. Many thanks to you Ruth Ann!

Bought a Townhouse home in 2011 for approximately $200K in Tigard, OR.
Ruth Ann was an absolute dream when it came to my husband and I finding and buying our first home. She was incredibly patient, and the furthest thing from pushy and demanding. My husband and I stopped looking for a few months around our wedding, and Ruth Ann just picked right back up where we left off when we notified her that we were ready to start looking again.

Once we found a home we wanted, Ruth Ann was incredibly knowledgeable about the negotiating and buying process. She helped us get a wonderful home, for a great price, in a wonderful neighborhood. We could not have been more pleased!

Thank you so much, Ruth Ann!

Bought a home in 2011.
If you're looking for a great agent, declare your search over.

I have known Ruth Ann Albro for approximately four years since she sold our first condo in 2007 just as the market started to sour. She not only helped us find our first big house, where we negotiated a sizable discount, but she listed it for sale when we relocated to Charlotte just 10 months later, and helped us get more than we paid. In the fall of 2010, I approached Ruth Ann to assist my family in buying a second home in Portland, Oregon. My goal was to purchase a short sale or bank-owned home, and asked her if she was up for the challenge. Little did she realize how much work she would invest over the course of the next year?

Today, I am happy to report that we finally closed our transaction after a very long and arduous process. Our first offer was on a short sale, and we finally moved on after five months after no response from the bank despite many phone calls and coordination by Ruth Ann. Starting in February 2011, we pursued several foreclosed homes and after five failed offers on different homes, we were finally successful.

Our most recent and last offer was accepted by the bank for less then the list price. Everything seemed to be in order until the appraisal came back lower than our offer price and our financing fell through as a result. Ruth Ann was resilient and pushed back on the selling bank to accept a new offer price so that we could still close the deal. Unfortunately this process ended up taking forever, and Ruth Ann was on the phone and sent e-mails almost on a daily basis to see this through. Just when we got to the end of our ropes, the deal was approved, and we were ready to close just days before my family would be homeless. Ruth Ann managed this stressful situation with the utmost professionalism and we got the deal recorded one day before the moving van was scheduled to arrive.

As I write this review, I looked back into my logs, and count no fewer than 150 phone calls, 250 e-mails, and 100 text messages from Ruth Ann throughout the last 11 months. As I would describe myself as very intense, demanding, and meticulous throughout this process, I was very impressed how willing she was to communicate and strategize with me, even when the circumstances were less than desirable, and she must have endured substantial personal stress. Ruth Ann was very organized and thorough. When we looked at homes, she always pointed out things that we didn't notice ourselves and was always mindful of our budget and expectations. She was an attentive listener, and instead of flat-rejecting my wild ideas, she was great at explaining why it wouldn't work, or how we could word things slightly different and expect the same result. She always backed us 100% with what we chose to do.

In summary, I would say Ruth Ann is extremely patient, knowledgeable, strategic, professional, optimistic, and resilient, with a positive upbeat attitude.

I view her as a business partner and friend, and I eagerly anticipate our next transaction.

Bought a home in 2010.
A friend recommended Ruth Ann to us and we are very happy we choose her as our Agent. She is very knowledgeable about Real Estate and we felt very confident about her abilities. She was very patient with us, as our situation was less than ideal. We lived in another state and had to buy our home as a second home. I would highly recommend Ruth Ann and I have many times. I have actually fired other Real Estate Agents, so dealing with Ruth Ann was very refreshing.

Sold a Single Family home in 2008 for approximately $275K in Beaverton, OR.
Ruth Ann helped us sell our last home and buy our current home. My wife and I must have dragged her to view over a hundred homes and Ruth Ann never lost her smile or charm. She provided us with a wealth of knowledge and helped us found a house we love
