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.

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.

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!!

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.

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

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

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

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.

To the Team,

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

- Sellers of 2316 Graveley

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

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

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

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.

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 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

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

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 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.

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

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!

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.

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

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

Wow. I was so impressed with the amazing service and thrilled with the results the team provided in selling my condo. Having not gone through the process before Ruth was very patient in answering all of my questions, guiding me through the steps and working with me. Also, I was selling while out of town and she was terrific in running around and tracking down keys and getting documents to my tenant to sign. Selling when you have a tenant can be tricky but due to the professionalism there were no problems. My only regret was that I didn’t hire them when I bought the place originally. Highly recommend.

- Seller of 304-222 N Templeton

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 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

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

- J. Drebitt

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

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

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.
