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

Willo was the perfect professional to help us buying our first apartment. She laid out all our options and carefully explained the costs and benefits of each. She helped us make informed decisions and never pressured us in any way. She was an excellent communicator, a great negotiator, and a well researched agent all the while being fun to be around. Our parents, who were involved in the purchase, felt that she genuinely cared about our future and did a great job of involving them in the process. When we sell, it will be with her and her wonderful team. They all seem to be really excited about their profession and there was never a question they couldn’t answer. My partner and I trust them, bottom line. It is no wonder why they are the top team in East Van!

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

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

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

Dear Ruth & David, my family and I are thrilled with our new home. Thank you for your kind professionalism over many, many months! With Gratitude.

- Buyers of 3859 Lanark

I know you have received other letters of thanks but I would like to write one as well. Now that you have sold our house and helped us buy another on “the Drive’ we would like to thank you for helping us through the process. We chose you as our realtors because you were honest, there was no pressure, and we always felt that you were doing what was best for us. Thanks again for everything.

- C.Smith

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

Thank you David and Ruth, for always being the consumate professionals. Multiple offer situations can be stressful for both the realtor and the buyer, but you two handled it so nicely, making sure it was an ethical and fair environment for all bidders while keeping the interests of your sellers foremost in your mind. It’s a pleasure to work with you, I look forward to our next transaction!

- Lynn Sakai-Boden, RE/MAX Westcoast

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

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

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

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

Just a short note to let you know how much we appreciate all your help in selling our home and purchasing our new one. Having friendly, experienced, hard working realtors really does make a difference. It was nice that one of you was always available to answer questions and offer helpful advice. Warmest regards.

- M. Mclean & M. Wong

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

This is just a quick note to thank you for your outstanding work selling our home in this difficult market. We don’t know how you did it but we are very pleased with the results. Your expert advice was especially helpful. We also noticed the care and respect shown to the house and the downstairs tenants by yourselves and Corey during the many open-house and appointment showings. It was appreciated.

- Sellers of 2735 Cambridge

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

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

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

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 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

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

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.

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

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!

You made this process so easy for us!! Thank you for all your help in selling our house.

- J. Drebitt

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.
