Ruth rose is a true pro who's closely well connected in the Oak Park area and who really knows how to win you a house in multiple offers. We were referred to Ruth when we found a house online that we want to see and make an offer on. Best referral yet. We met her the next day at our showing and made an offer that night. She was professional, honest, and looked into every aspect of the house we wanted. Unfortunately, we lost that house to a higher down payment after not taking Ruth's advice because we thought we knew better which was our foolish mistake. However, fortunately for us, this allowed us additional time to work with Ruth (and learn from Ruth), and we just closed an incredible deal on our forever house which we were awarded against 4 other offers. Not being local to the area, we're from LA, she taught us all about the neighborhoods, tracts, values, prestige, rules and regs, even good places to dine. She is full of resources. Once in escrow, Ruth negotiated like a pro, and told us everything we'd need to do to achieve our goal (and we listened). She wasn't afraid to tell us what we needed to hear even if it wasn't what we wanted to hear. Our escrow was unexpectedly long, and at times we got frustrated, but she stayed in the deal with us by checking in with escrow every other day and she tirelessly fought for our best interest - ultimately saving us thousands. Day to day dealings with Ruth are kind, professional, and to the point. She ALWAYS answered her phone which made working with her so easy, and her back and forth communication between us and all the other parties was excellent. She's always one step ahead of the game. We felt she really protected our best interest. She went above and beyond to accommodate showings and scheduling of inspections. When we were still house shopping, I'd call her in the morning when I'd see a new listing pop up online, and several times she'd schedule to get me in to see it by lunch time. One time, the house wasn't even showing for a few days and Ruth got me 2 days early because she knows EVERYONE in the area. Ruth gets listings before they post. I met a co worker from the area the other day and when we realized we had Oak Park in common, he also knew Ruth. She had just sold his house with multiple offers before even listing it. She's that good. Ruth's an operator. As a business person myself, I have tremendous respect for Ruth. Her work ethic is superior! She will land you the right house for you.
