Thank you to both of you for all your hard work to make our sale a quick success! We didn’t dare to think that it would be that quick with such a great result! We are sad to be leaving but look forward to starting a new chapter and hope that the purchasers will enjoy their new home as much as we have enjoyed it for the past 7 years. We look forward to working with you again in the near future on our purchase.

Ed and I would like to extend our gratitude for the great job you did selling the condo. The team did a tremendous job. I think we are still in shock, especially every time we walk by and see the “Sold” sign. Not having to do a thing to the place was such a bonus. Thank you so very much. You guys are real pro.

- Sellers of 304-1707 Charles

Ruth and David, this is just a brief note to express our thanks to both of you for your work selling our home. Peter and i have bought and sold over 17 homes in the Lower Mainland and Victoria and we have never had such a splendid team of realtors working with us. From our initial meeting in which you outlined your marketing plan, to the provision of tips for the presentation, through to the Sneaky Peek, the showings and the open house, we were delighted and had confidence in your professionalism. Many thanks for the swift sale. All the best.

- Sellers of 2723 Yale

Fast, effective and super nice. Awesome communicators with the personal touch. We signed an intent to sell on April 27, 2014 and the house was sold at $105, 000 over asking on the 12th of May. From intent to sale in such a short period of time with one evening “Sneaky Peek”‘ and one Sunday open house, Wow! The team really understood our house and who we are. The quality of research was superb and the entire range from photo/video to conducting the open house was spot on. Clearly, The Ruth & David Group know their job. We recommend them as consummate professionals. It has been a real pleasure working with a Team that understands the potential stress level of selling such a valuable and emotionally charged possession. In fact, we have been remarkably calm through the entire event. Thank you Ruth, David, Willo and Corey.

- Sellers of 2639 Carolina

I strongly recommend Willo Jackson to anyone desiring to purchase a house in the Vancouver area. She was highly recommended to my wife and myself by our son, who had just bought a condo. Willo carefully guided us through the whole process: sending us possible listings months before our visit to Vancouver, taking us to examine over fifteen selected homes once we arrived in the city, pointing out the positive features and liabilities of each home and its location, advising us on strategically placing an offer on a perfect place, and helping us finalize the purchase agreement. Throughout all of these steps, we were deeply impressed with her background knowledge of particular localities in the city, her understanding of underlying physical features of each structure, her familiarity with the present-day market, and the cultivated relationships she and her firm had with many other agents. Before the closing date Willo sent us a very detailed list of the steps to take to complete the purchase and assured us she would be there whenever we needed suggestions or other help. Overall, her energy and enthusiasm were infectious and in the end we felt that we had a good friend on our side.   ​ 

- Buyers of 108-825 West 7th

Just a note to say how thankful we are to you and Ruth in the selling of our house on East 5th and Commercial Drive. We were so nervous about getting a realtor, but you came highly recommended and we really appreciate the fact that you were honest from the start, explained everything in detail, even the benefit of the Sneaky Peek. Everything happened exactly the way you said it would and we couldn’t be happier. Thanks again.

- Sandi & Kirk

To the Team,

Thank you for selling our home so quickly! You are the best!

- Sellers of 2316 Graveley

Dear Corey, wow! What can we say but a huge thank you for being so amazing to work with – being a steady hand through what could have been a much more stressful event. Thank you for everything.

- The Wilson Family of 5483 Dunbar

I worked with Ruth and David the first time 12 years ago when they were just Ruth and David (not yet a whole team!). After they found the house I’d always wanted and coached us beautifully through the offer, I was more than happy to recommend them to anyone looking on the East Side. Now fast forward 12 years, another transition, and The Ruth & David Group are there again, providing solid guidance, warm understanding, and knowledgeable advice. I will continue to recommend them to others. They are a wonderful part of the community.

- Seller of 2706 Charles

We would like to thank Ruth and David for making the recent sale of our home as painless (and profitable!) as possible. As first-time sellers, we were unfamiliar with the process and had many concerns. But David and Ruth’s calm professionalism guided us through…we would highly recommend them.

- P.Thierch. & M.Mcdowell

How do you sell a family home of +22 years and feel comfortable. Call Ruth and Cory, their team will make you feel welcome and wonderful. So glad we chose this wonderful group to make it all happen. Thanks again, Ruth and Cory for making our transition from happy home in East Van to happy out of the lower mainland. All the best!

- Sellers of 3824 Lanark

As a first time home-buyer I really appreciated the attention and time they/(Corey) dedicated to my search. Pretty amazing to get the same standard of care whether you’re spending millions or just starting out. I found my perfect place and couldn’t be happier!

- Buyer Natalie

If you’re looking under the Testimonials segment of Ruth & David’s website, you’re already on your way to making a very good decision. Here’s a little bit on why we went with them and why we believe it was truly a great decision. We are of the opinion that our time is valuable. We had big decisions to make and we weren’t willing to settle for anything less than an exceptional realtor / client experience. Ruth and David respected our time, were always punctual, made the effort to truly comprehend our needs and understood that to us; this was an enormous step in our lives and not simply another real estate transaction. They are straight up, direct people who do what they say they will and represented our interests with zeal. Ruth and David get respect. They are connected, they know the real estate landscape and when you’re one of their clients, it’s like you have an advantage over everybody else. We know Ruth and David work all across Vancouver, but especially if you’re thinking East Van, there is absolutely nobody else you should even consider. These guys know the neighbourhood, they live in the neighbourhood, they love the neighbourhood and we believe Ruth and David provide an East Van edge that is unparalleled. We’ve just bought and sold and are in no hurry to move again anytime soon, but when that time does eventually come, there is only one call we will make. It’s the same one you should too

- J. & Jenn

Tailored to our needs and wishes. Professional and personable! Highly recommended!

- Buyers of 1004-11 Royal Ave

Thank you Ruth, David & Corey for selling our house and finding us a new one in such a crazy market. We really appreciate all the work you did especially Corey while Ruth and David were away. We will definitely recommend you to friends who need a realtor.

- Sellers of 1485 Kitchener & Buyers of 4825 East Georgia

Thank you Ruth, David, Corey! We could never have pulled this off without you. It was a very difficult challenge to get this home sold in the timeframe we had and it was your website the buyers went to first, so I truly believe if we had not found you… we would not be in this great position now. We so appreciate it and we would recommend you to any of our friends looking for a realtor.

- Sellers of 2243 Oxford

Corey Martin is not only a stellar real estate agent, he’s become part of my family. He really has your best interest at heart, offers great advice and is up to date on the market. He’s extremely low pressure but is high energy. When Corey offers his opinion, you listen because he’s a go getter, intelligent and a wonderful human being to boot! You’ll enjoy your time with him and use him to buy and sell your properties over the years. I did and I’ve done very well. It’s without a single reservation that I recommend you go with Corey Martin and The Ruth & David Group.

- Seller of 501-1068 West Broadway

One could come up with many adjectives to describe the level of service you get from The Ruth & David Group…knowledgeable, professional, responsive, timely, but most of all personable. The whole group exudes a feeling of caring for the client, and therefore go out of their way to make sure you are taken care of at every moment throughout the whole stressful process of selling your home. Their strategy to get the best outcome for you works, and we would not hesitate to strongly recommend their services, especially on the east side of Vancouver.

- Sellers of 1029 East 12th

Ruth & David are the real deal… they offered impeccable guidance, planning, and initiative in the management of our home sale together with wholehearted receptiveness to our input, history and pride in our home. Plus they worked so dam hard on our behalf. Our only regret on selling and leaving the ‘hood is that we’d really like to get to work with them again!

- Sellers of 1927 East 4th

Ruth, David and the team are fantastic. They came in listening and giving honest, straightforward advice. We went in with a plan, and when we wanted to change it part way through the process Ruth and David gave us an open and frank conversation on the pros and cons of the change. Despite not agreeing entirely with the direction we wanted to go, they provided full hearted support. They were patient, when we had cold feet regarding the sale. We also faced unusual challenges during the sale, however Ruth and David had the contacts and knowledge to resolve the issues. These are not the usual realtors. They are knowledgeable, personable, and have the experience to get the job done, and do so with integrity. We highly recommend this team. They helped us become the dirftless world travellers we always dreamed of. Thanks!

- Sellers of 5284 St. Catherines

My husband and I have nothing but good things to say about The Ruth & David Group. They have sold 2 of our properties now – one in 2010 and one this fall. The 2010 sale was in the Commercial Drive area and the 2015 sale was in Mount Pleasant. They are just excellent. In both cases, we had multiple tenants for them to coordinate and in both cases, none of the tenants ever complained. They are great to deal with –exceptionally hard-working, professional, knowledgeable, flexible, efficient, low stress, and amusing. Of course, they got us buyers for the price we wanted in both cases. I just don’t know why you would use any other realtor if you are selling your house in East Vancouver.

- Sellers of 1267 East 13th

We were referred to Tina from The Ruth & David group, as our original realtor was no longer residing in BC. The experience working with Tina was fantastic. She met with us the same day that we were referred to her, she gave us excellent tips on how to make our condo show to prospective buyers in the best way possible. She had sold in our building, knew our neighbourhood very well, and suggested a realistic listing price for our unit, which I believe was the reason we had so much interest in our unit. She was responsive and always kept us in the loop during the entire selling process. Her expertise was invaluable and allowed us to sell our condo in one week, and for over the listed price.  Having a relationship end is a complicated and emotional process for anyone, the experience with Tina made the process of selling our condo as easy and positive as it could be. I can say that I would definitely work with Tina again, and I would not hesitate to refer friends and family to her and The Ruth & David Group.

- Seller of 215-711 East 6th

Willo helped us to find a house we love in our chosen area in literally a blink of eye. She is knowledgable, full of energy, personal, flexible and most importantly accommodating. The whole group is very supportive of each other. I could tell there is a great working dynamic among all the members in the group. While working with Willo, it didn’t feel like she was the only one helping us out. She came with solid support from her whole team. My husband and I truly enjoyed working with her and the team.

- Buyers of 2220 Kitchener

Our experience selling and buying with The Ruth & David Group was outstanding. Corey and Willo did everything possible to make our experience as stress-free as possible. Their famous marketing system worked brilliantly, selling our property swiftly and at considerably over asking. Throughout the whole process, Corey was always available to answer any questions we had, and any information we needed was swiftly provided. I would recommend The Ruth & David Group to anyone looking for a superior standard of realty services, and have already suggested them to a number of friends.

- Sellers of 27-3477 Commercial

I have nothing but good things to say about my experience with Ruth, David, Corey and Willo. They exemplified all the qualities one would look for in a good realtor: excellent communicators and very professional, always available to answer any questions or concerns and extremely knowledgable about the real estate market. The photographs Willo took of my condo were beautiful! My experience was positive every step of the way and I highly recommend their team!!

- Seller of 518-3333 Main

Corey – Amazing!!! It is really the best word to describe you. I swear this day would have never come without your support.

- Buyer of 309-365 East 1st St

Ruth and Dave have been our realtors for at least 25 years. They helped us then and the whole team helped us now….with a special shout out to Willo, who helped in the purchase of the first place she showed us…talk about great listening skills. Professional, proactive and great negotiators. Caring and passionate, calm cool and comforting. Others have said it better than I ever could so I’ll just say this…Do yourself a favour and call Ruth, Dave and the rest of the team….you’ll be glad you did.

- Sellers of 2487 Kitchener

It is hard to miss The Ruth & David Group in our neighbourhood in East Van as they have sold signs up on houses everywhere. We got to know Ruth, David and Corey as we went to open houses looking to move from a duplex to a larger single family home. We learned a lot about our local real estate market from them and eventually they found us the home we were looking for. They provided sage advice and guidance as we went through some challenging negotiations trying to purchase our new home and their marketing efforts resulted in multiple offers and an excellent price for our previous home. This was the most important (and at times stressful) transaction of our lives and throughout it all the team was attentive to our many questions and needs. We would recommend them without reservation.

- Sellers of 2050 East 5th & Buyers of 2203 East 6th

Not only are you seasoned, strategic, and on top of every innumerable detail, you all clearly love what you do. Our buy, our sell, and all the negotiations and hoops — your first class service and wisdom made for smooth sailing. We’re clients for life.
