"If I could give the honest amount of stars for Ruth, it would be a whole box of New Years confetti, or a galaxy of multiple solar systems. Ruth was our realtor up until we closed escrow on our home yesterday, and we will actually miss our phone calls, meetings, and open house visits with Ruth because she is so warm, knowledgable, and professional. We are happy to have a house, but sad we won't work with her in this capacity anymore! To begin, I teach on the westside and had a very hard time conceptualizing leaving my friends and comfort zone to live in the valley. Ruth was incredibly understanding of my hesitancy and was honest with me about homes that would be too far of a commute for me, and were not worth seeing. She was ALWAYS right. Ruth was so patient with us, and always went out of her way to make us feel like her only clients, even though we knew she was busy with other clients and her own life. She made time for us not just to walk through homes with us, but also took the time to ask questions we wouldn't think to ask (is that a working fire place? Is this up to code? Is that permitted?) and guided us gently, but firmly to get the best possible house for us at the best possible cost. In fact, we wouldn't have our home at all if it weren't for Ruth. Our sellers had an offer 50K more than our offer, but Ruth was persistent, communicative, and in the end, the sellers chose us because of Ruth's communicative and easy going nature. Ruth balances her wisdom with her knowledge, and knows everything there is to know about real estate. I was concerned that being new to the market I would be duped or confused, but Ruth explained everything to me in language I could understand, and never made me feel like my questions were excessive or dumb (even when they were). The market in Los Angeles right now is bonkers, and Ruth helped us put an offer in that matched the appraisal price identically. We were blown away, as our own friends and family have overpaid for their homes by enormous amounts. When we got our house, Ruth celebrated with us, and felt our joy as her own. She is an amazing business woman, but an even more incredible human being and we just cannot recommend her enough. You will have the most wonderful experience and find your PERFECT home with Ruth Rose!"
