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

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.

- Sellers of 204-1623 East 2nd

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!

- Courtenay

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.

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.

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

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

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

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.

- Sellers of 105 East 15th

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

- J. Drebitt

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…

- Seller of 1742 East 5th

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

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

Willo, Shan and I both had a breezy time home-hunting with you – you turned a stressful experience into one that was informative and pretty fun. We learned a lot about the Vancouver market from you, and you helped us find a home to start the next chapter of our life in. And we’ll be even better prepared when the time comes for an upgrade down the line. In the meantime, we have no shortage of friends who I imagine will be looking to get into this crazy market in the not-too-distant future. We’ll let them know how easy you made the experience for us. Thanks again!

- Buyers of 1084 Nicola

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

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
