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

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

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.

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

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

- J. Drebitt

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!

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

Tina Pang has the know how and experience to correctly estimate the volatile housing market of East Vancouver. Always on call, Tina presents herself in a most professional manner even when the situation surrounding your sale is less then optimal.

- R. Murcar of 215-711 East 6th

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Tina‘s vast knowledge and experience of the East Vancouver real estate market can not be taken for granted! Everything she knows, including information on city bylaws, what’s happening and will be happening in the city helped us a great deal in finding the right home.  She fully understood the city/neighbourhood we were looking to buy in. Her passion for what she does is evident through all her knowledge. We trusted her fully in keeping our best interest in mind. Her attention to detail, kindness and professionalism is an added bonus! We would highly recommend Tina to anyone looking to purchase a home in Vancouver, especially during this insane market!

- Buyers of 2189 East Pender

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

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

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

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

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

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 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

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

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

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.
