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.

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.

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

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

Ruth and David made selling our home quick, easy and painless! Their obvious experience and down-to-earth attitude was greatly appreciated throughout the entire process. Not once did we feel pressured in any way!

- M. & G. Breen

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.

- Seller of 2407 Pandora

It was such a pleasure working with Willo. She came to every meeting with all the appropriate background information fully researched. She was knowledgeable in all aspects of buying a home and was such a help to us! During the whole process, we felt 100% confident inthe help we were getting from Willo and knew we could trust her completely. I wouldn’t have imagined going through this without her!

- Buyers Jessica & Jerry

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

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.

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

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

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.

- Buyers Max & Rod

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 are an exceptional team of people. Throughout the process of selling my house, they were very professional and efficient, but also extremely compassionate during a challenging time in my life. Once the sale was complete, they were also diligent in helping me find a suitable new home. Once found, amongst a literal feeding frenzy of 28 bids, Willo – in a Herculean effort – called to tell me that it would be mine. Their work is above and beyond expectation, and I highly recommend them. Thank you, R&DG.

- Buyer of 110-555 West 14th

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

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.

- Seller of 4715 Moss

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!

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.

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

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

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

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.

- Danielle & Scott

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

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 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!!

Ruth and David are well known in our area for being excellent realtors.  Many of our friends have raved about working with them. So they were an easy choice for us when we decided to sell our East Van duplex. But we were even more impressed with Ruth than we expected to be. We have worked with three realtors in the past 6 months and Ruth was by far and away the best, excelling at many different aspects of client service. On of her best qualities is patience. We started the process of selling without a clear vision of what or where we wanted to buy. She never tried to rush us or tell us what to do. She listened intently and asked us questions, which gradually helped us gain clarity on what we wanted. She was always available for us. Once we decided to list, Ruth connected us to a team of partners she works with, who really helped the stressful process of selling go very smoothly for us. From GlenHickey.com, the (free) design consultant who helped us make our home look its best, to Kireicleaning.ca who did the final cleaning, she recommended people who are pros. Most importantly, when it came to listing and accepting offers, Ruth made us feel she was protecting us as her clients. When it felt like the market was softening, she steadied our nerves. She always had our best interest at heart and it translated into multiple offers and a sale that we were ultimately very happy with. We highly recommend Ruth for anyone looking for a realtor in East Vancouver. 

- Sellers of 1807 East 7th

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

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

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

Just a brief note to thank you for the nice job you did in managing the sale of my home. It turned out to be a bigger undertaking than I had anticipated and many was the time that I felt fortunate to have you in charge. You always seemed to be on top of things and never hesitated to go that extra mile. When I was so overwhelmed with “Estate Responsibilities” it was nice to know that this part was something I didn’t have to worry about. Thanks much for all you did and I would certainly be happy to recommend you to any others needing help with the sale of their home as well…
