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.

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!

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.   ​

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!

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.

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!

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

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.

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

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.

- Sellers of 1267 East 13th

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.

- Sandi & Kirk

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 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…

Corey Martin is not only a stellar real estate agent, he’s become part of my family. He really has your best interest at heart, offers great advice and is up to date on the market. He’s extremely low pressure but is high energy. When Corey offers his opinion, you listen because he’s a go getter, intelligent and a wonderful human being to boot! You’ll enjoy your time with him and use him to buy and sell your properties over the years. I did and I’ve done very well. It’s without a single reservation that I recommend you go with Corey Martin and The Ruth & David Group.

- Seller of 501-1068 West Broadway

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

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!!

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

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.

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

To the Team,

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

- Sellers of 2316 Graveley

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

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

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

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.
