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.

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.

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!!

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

- J. & Jenn

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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

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.

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.   ​

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.

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

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!

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 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.

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

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.

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

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

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

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

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.
