Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $650K in Ben Lomond, CA.
Ruth was fantastic throughout the entire process of looking for our new home. She continually provided new listings in the areas in which we were interested and within our price range. After finding the right home, Ruth jumped through hoops to secure the home for us and to meet the short escrow closing time-frame required by the seller. The entire transaction went very quickly and smoothly. It's clear that Ruth is highly skilled and loves what she does. I would happily recommend her to anybody who is looking for their new home. She's a true professional.
We randomly stumbled across Ruth at one of her open houses and from the moment we met her, we knew that she would be the one to help us find our future vacation home. Ruth was very energetic, responsive and really listened to what we wanted. She was patient and was very willing to go out of her way to help us right from the start. Finding our future 2nd home was a process but she was always willing to show us new listing and answer our endless questions. Ultimately she helped us find our dream beach getaway. We would highly recommend Ruth!!!
Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $825K in Santa Cruz, CA.
Ruth helped us with both the sale of our home, and the purchase of our new home here in Santa Cruz. It was a great experience. She is focused, responsive, and highly personable. If you want to get it done, Ruth is the one!
Ruth is through, responsive and creative. She really cares about you and wants you to be happy. It is not "just about the sale". I have already recommended her to other friends who also had the same experience.
Bought a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $325K in Aptos, CA.
Ruth helped my buy a condo as an investment. She was extremely skilled at finding condos that met my investment criteria and NOT inundating me with too many listings. She was on top of all the paperwork. She was punctual, intelligent, articulate, honest, reliable, responsive, and friendly. The condo purchase went smoothly and was a success. Ruth also helped me try to buy a short-sale condo. Short sales are extremely complex transactions and ours was complicated by an unexpected change in the servicing bank, an uncooperative HOA that didn't release documents, a sometimes-unresponsive seller's agent, and other problems. Eventually we gave up on that transaction, but while we pursued it, Ruth did everything you could expect of an agent. I will turn to Ruth again if I need a realtor.

Bought a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $375K in Santa Cruz, CA.
Ruth is not only knowledgeable and professional, she is extremely personable and patient. Most importantly she LISTENS! She never tried to convince me that a particular listing would be "perfect" for me, but listened to what I said about various properties we looked at and zeroed in on what I was looking for.
She showed me many properties during my search (I had gone through several realtors prior to finding her) and never made me feel that I was being too hard to please or wasting her time. In fact, when I suggested that might be the case and that maybe I should just settle for "good enough", she said, "NO! What you want is out there and we'll just keep looking till we find it. This is what I do for a living, you aren't wasting my time." And I am now happily settled in my new home!!
