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.

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

I chose The Ruth & David Group for a few reasons. A good friend years ago used their services and had good results selling their house around Trout Lake. I was pleasantly surprised that Ruth remembered that couple. I have noticed over the years they are a constant in real estate and researched their success. The house I recently sold was a character home and they have knowledge and interest for older homes in Vancouver. Everyone on their team performed well. The pictures on the MLS turned out great and their associate Corey was very personable. All in all my house sold at a fair market price and I’m happy with the service I chose.

The Ruth & David Group were a delight to work with. Their professionalism in focusing on me as a client was evident by their attentive listening. I never felt like I was asking a “dumb question”. They were always prompt to answer queries, and kept me abreast of the best options to meet my real estate needs. I would highly recommend their services.

- M. Meyer

Your in-depth knowledge of market conditions and valuations made all the difference in turning a potentially stressful endeavor into a rather enjoyable experience. We especially appreciated your guidance in helping us to understand our needs and requirements. Having the right people makes all the difference! We certainly look forward to working with you again for our future real estate need, we would not hesitate to recommend you services to anybody looking to buy or sell a home.

- T.Woo & S.Y .A.u Yeung

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.

Dear Corey,
I wanted to thank you. Please know how much I appreciate your personal sacrifice to make things right when others would not. I am genuinely grateful for all you did to facilitate a successful sale. You are a stand up guy which is sadly rare these days. You are a good person as well as a true professional. All the best to you in your career.

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

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!

Dear Ruth & David, I can’t thank you enough for all your help these past few months, especially when I decided to buy this little place on East Hastings. When we sat down a few months ago, I didn’t fully appreciate what you meant about the process of buying a place – now I do! Many thanks.

- Buyer of 317-2150 East Hastings

Unfortunately, not every relationship ends with happily ever after. Throw a shared property in the mix and things could get complicated. Corey and the team at The Ruth and David Group were very sensitive and really supported us through a challenging time. They made our sale process quick, easy, clear and concise. We cannot even begin to describe how grateful and appreciative we were to have had Corey and the team on our side! Thank you all so very much.

- Sellers of 113-2635 Prince Edward

I can’t thank you enough for your guidance, professionalism, thorough knowledge, persistence, perspective, and humor! You make dreams come true. You are the best! And you are the second most optimistic guy in the world – yep, I know someone who, believe it or not, is more optimistic. I want to thank you once again for all your efforts. I really appreciate your professionalism and ability to get the job done. I don’t believe this would have worked out without you!

- Buyer & Seller Corneliu

The Ruth & David Group is probably the most active Real Estate Team in the Commercial Drive area. I have been impressed time upon time by their knowledge of the history and culture of the Commercial Drive area. They seem to know everyone and everyone seems to know them. Due to this when it came time choose a Real Estate Agent or Team to represent us our immediate first choice was The Ruth & David Group. Ruth and Corey came out to meet us, see our place, find out what our situation was, what we were looking to achieve and give us their assessment of what they could get for us. They were upfront and frank about everything, no over estimations of our house’s worth or promising the world to get our business. Just a calm, reasoned appraisal of our situation and suggestions tailored to our specific needs. When it came time to put our place on the market they were easy to work with and incredibly efficient. Everything was arranged in 1 week, photos and floor plans put online and they had already put the word out to clients they knew were waiting for a property like ours. Our property was on the market for only 1 week. From what I understand approximately 50 groups saw our house in 4 days of showings. An incredible amount of activity for just 7 days of being on the market. In the end we had 8 offers on the 8th day. This lead to us getting a final selling price that was 23% over asking. All the way through this Corey helped us with everything and Ruth and David were in the background giving us sage advice and reassuring words to help us get through the more stressful parts. Joy was managing all of the details and Willo was handling all of our last minute questions during the Closing Period. It was an amazing whirlwind experience and yet it never made us feel like we were over our heads. The Team was truly amazing. I cannot make it any more clear than they wowed us and calmed us all the while impressing us with their ability to make everything go so smoothly that we never saw them making all of the arrangements in the background. I will always recommend The Ruth & David Group to anyone looking for a Realtor who knows the ins and outs of the East Side of Vancouver. Thank you again for everything.

- Sellers of 3538 Bella Vista

It was a pleasure working with both you. Had I know that it would have been such a quick sale I would’ve listed with you guys last year when I first put the house on the market but hindsight is 20/20. Your professionalism and expertise are very much appreciated and respected. Thanks again for your efforts and hopefully we’ll cross paths again. You can be sure that I’ll be referring everyone I know to you.

- Seller of 2536 East 2nd

Willo,
You really are a special person. Thank you for your note. I reallly needed it today, because I couldn’t think of anything except the house. I really appreciate everything you and the team have done for me.

- V. Bortoletto of 4228 Victoria

Buying or selling a house can be a very scary thing (especially in Vancouver)……so emotionally charged, with so many real consequences. I used Ruth and David for both. They were knowledgeable, professional and have integrity with no pressure. They put my needs first, not their commission. I have now landed in the right place, largely to do with their help. It’s a very big life decision and to Ruth and David I will always be sincerely thankful.

- Frances

I worked with Tina from The Ruth & David Group when I was purchasing my condo. She was fantastic to work with and helped guide me through the purchase process. I never would have been able to land the winning bid without her advice.

- Buyer of 207-643 West 7th

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

We would like to take this opportunity to recommend the services of Ruth Chuang and David Jones to anyone needing a real estate agent in Vancouver. They always gave sound advice, but never attempted to make a decision for us or push us in any way. We were shopping from Kamloops, and Ruth made every effort to schedule showings for us on short notice when we were in Vancouver and to view houses for us when we could not drive down. We felt comfortable because she was very in tune with the sort of property we were searching for. We really appreciated the service they provided and would highly recommend them to anyone needing an agent in the Vancouver market.

- D.Sachs & S.Simard

It was necessary for us to look to Ruth and David regularly for advice. Their counsel proved to be correct as we ended up with the results that we had hoped to achieve, we were continually impressed, and found them to be highly professional, knowledgeable and hard working.We are very pleased with the work of Ruth and David and would not hesitate in recommending them to our family, friends and colleagues.

- L.Nose & J.Begin

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

Thank you very much for all of your hard work in finding us a wonderful home to purchase. We really enjoyed working with you in our endeavor. We know for certain you can’t get a better realtor than you two.

- S.Keogh & G. Robertson

I wanted to pass on to you some feedback on one of your realtors. We worked with Ruth Chuang of The Ruth & David Group on a recent purchase and wanted to express what an outstanding agent she is. She was our voice of negotiation, concerns, and aided us in our decisions. It is no wonder she is one of Vancouver’s top agents and I will continue to recommend her and her team to anyone looking to sell or buy. Your advertisements about ‘Realtors Help ‘ and ‘Realtors Care’ are very true and Ruth is exemplary of this.

To All Potential Home Buyers,
My partner and I were both first time homebuyers, and recently purchased a new home with the help of Willo and her team. As first time home buyers we did not know what we were in for or how to start the whole process of buying a home. We did a LOT of research, and met a lot of real-estate agents while attempting to go at it alone. We realized quickly that we needed help. However, we found real-estate agents irritating and phony. Preamble: I have a black and white personality, limited time, and short patience. We finally came across The Ruth & David Group website and were impressed by what was conveyed – they seemed personable and experienced. Best decision we could have made!! Willo is a superhero in our eyes and in what seems to be saturated market of real-estate agents – we consider her a rare find.
5 reasons why we will stick with Willo for life:
1. She made us feel like we were her only clients – My partner is a business owner and knows this is no easy task. In fact he is still perplexed as to how Willo managed to do it. I cannot stress enough that this is the MOST IMPORTANT trait you are looking for in a real estate agent because you snooze you lose when it comes to the battle of the properties.
2. She listens – You tell Willo something once and she gets it.
3. She is efficient and timely – She was quick, almost immediate, in her responses to our emails, texts, or phone calls.
4. She is competitive – She strives to be the best in whatever she does and it shows. If we were interested in a property we had a viewing ASAP. We were always happy to have her at an open house with us because she dominated the floor.
5. She is knowledgeable – Sadly we went to many viewings where the listing agent knew nothing about the property they were selling or had their facts wrong. Willo was always on the ball, kept them on their toes, researched the property and the area extensively before we arrived, and asked questions we would have forgot to ask otherwise. Willo does not “wing it” – if she does not know the answer she owns up to it and finds out what the answer is. Willo’s honesty was always appreciated.
We could not be happier with the service received from Willo and her team. We have so much trust in their competency to deliver the best customer service in Greater Vancouver.

- Raelene & Scott

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

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.

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

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

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

Corey + The Team,

Just a note to express our extreme appreciation for the hard work, savvy marketing, flexibility you & your team demonstrated over the last few weeks. Our tight deadlines meant nothing to you, and your professionalism and knowledgeable handling of our super quick + amazing sale were second to none. We won’t hesitate to recommend you to friends in the future! All the very best and a million thank yous from our family.
