Ruth, Thanks you so much for all of your help. You have been so wonderful! You are an amazing agent and I am very glad we got you! You have been so on top of things, your drive and tenacity is absolutely commmendable. We appreciate all that you do especially having to deal with that other agent. Thank you!
From the outset, you educated us completely on what was selling, what had sold, and what hadn't sold in our area so that we felt informed and were very comfortable with our listing price. Your ads, flyers and open houses resulted in multiple offers in less than a week, and you exceeded our expectations with your negotiation skills and attention to detail. The fact that you followed up with each showing and let us know any feedback that could help us make the property more marketable, was very effective. We knew you had our best interests at heart, and the fact that you were always available whenever we phoned or emailed you made us feel very well taken care of through the whole process.
Throughout the purchase of our new home, which we love and continue to enjoy every day, your negotiating skills again were the glue that held a difficult deal together, and whenever there were signs that this negotiation might not get completed satisfactorily, your persistence and upbeat determination was wonderful to observe and we felt thankful and pleased that we had selected you to represent our interests in our real estate transactions.
Thank you again for a superb performance. We are pleased to recommend your name to our family, and friends secure in the knowledge that they are in the best of hands.

Having lived in our fully detached house in north Toronto for over forty-five years, it was a difficult decision to downsize into a condominium. Once that decision was made, my wife and I had two major hurdles to leap: first - find the appropriate place to move (we wanted to stay in our area) and secondly to sell our current home at the best possible price. After your careful evaluation of our needs, you patiently searched out the perfect location for us. Your negotiating skills brought us through the purchasing ordeal with no major issues and we found ourselves happy with a deal that helped us become excited to move. Within days, our old beloved homestead was listed, shown and sold fetching us a price that helped us afford our new residence and some renovations done as well. We appreciate the assistance that you provided making this stressful activity as painless as possible. There would be no hesitation in recommending your services to others looking to make a similar move.

We truly appreciate the excellent advice you gave us with respect to getting the house ready for sale and throughout the whole process. We could not be happier with the process and the end result of selling our home at well over the asking price, in only one week. We value your expertise and professionalism and would recommend you to anyone who is looking for assistance with buying or selling a home.

We could not have anticipated the number of decisions that would be required at each step of the process in selling and purchasing homes but we were consistently reassured by your knowledge, skilled professionalism, encouragement and support. Notwithstanding your busy schedule, you were always available for our many calls and patient and helpful with our questions. We cannot communicate how thankful we were for your reliability and dependability during a natural period of uncertainty. We also came to appreciate that selling and buying homes often requires involvement of other professionals and we benefited greatly from your ability to connect us with competent and trustworthy professionals in the network.
We would also like to thank you for your thoughtfulness and warmth. Our frequent meetings were always comfortable and relaxed and you brought clarity to the issues, giving us confidence and optimism that barriers could be readily and successfully handled. On the day of our move with all of its attendant stresses, to receive your take-out dinner as the last box arrived was both touching and greatly appreciated.
Finally, we would like you to know that you truly exceeded all of our expectations in what we hoped to achieve in selling and purchasing our homes. Ruth, we could not have done this without you and we are so grateful!

Without a doubt....you earned every penny & then some! I doubt there is another agent in the country that is as devoted to their clients and as unflappable under duress!
Your perseverance brings results and I am very grateful to have you as my agent, as well as my dear friend.
I need to take the time to once again thank you from the bottom of my heart. I could not have bought my new condo without you and I truly mean that. Your guidance, patience and brilliance is humbling and deeply respected.
I just wanted to thank you for the amazing job you did in helping me sell my
parent's house. Dealing with the loss of my mother was difficult enough
without worrying about getting her home prepared for sale. Your assistance
in finding someone to remove almost 40 years of accumulated stuff, and a
reasonably priced contractor to do some painting and minor renovations was
invaluable. I'm firmly convinced that the reason we managed to sell the
house for the price I wanted on the very first day it was shown, was a
direct result of the refreshed look you had me give the house, the fact that
you priced it perfectly, and your outstanding negotiating skills! I simply
don't have the words to thank you enough!
I`m writing on behalf of Mary and me to express our deep and sincere appreciation for the very professional service you have recently provided to us in the sale of our house. From the moment we asked you to represent our interests in this important real-estate transaction, you took complete charge and ran with it, making the fullest possible use of your talents and experience, while at the same time acknowledging our wishes in every respect. You explained carefully and thoughtfully each stage of the procedure you planned to follow, and everything happened in sequence in complete accordance with your plan, and you kept us fully informed every step of the way. Your advice during the offer negotiations was invaluable, making it a straightforward matter for us to bring these negotiations to a successful conclusion. To have the house sold within nine days from the date of listing, with the selling price above the asking price, was the icing on the cake. We can`t thank you enough for everything you have done, and for the professionalism with which it was carried out. You are a great credit to the industry you serve.

Ruth very quickly sold my mother`s property having negotiated a very satisfactory price. The buyer and seller were both very pleased with the outcome. Then Ruth found the right condo apartment for us after showing only two other possibilities. She clearly understood our needs and price range and avoided ``wild goose chases``. She then quickly listed our home and sold it within 5 days for well over the listed price. We think Ruth is special. She was great to work with, very professional, diligent, hardworking, practical and efficient. We were particularly impressed with her firm but fair negotiating skills and we are most confident and happy to recommend her.
G. & E. G.
Thank you so much for your efforts in preparing our home for sale and the great, unexpected results in getting the best price and at such a short time. Throughout our experience with you, we felt confident that you had our best interest in mind and we valued your guidance and comforting advice. David and I were surprised at the multiple offers and were extremely impressed with the manner in which you have dealt with us and the prospective purchasers. We feel very fortunate to have been referred to you. You can rest assured that we will highly recommend you when opportunities arise.
My wife and I were extremely happy when you helped us find our new dream home. Of course, we were even happier when you sold our property for much more than the asking price in just over one week on the market. Your strong negotiating, organizational and marketing skills ensured a smooth and worry free sale. We felt very secure that you were doing all the right things to market our home appropriately and professionally. The number of showings, and ultimately offers, we got is a testament to your efforts. In closing, we would like, once again, to express our gratitude for making what could have been a stressful experience a very positive and enjoyable one. We would not hesitate to recommend you to our friends.
Dr. P. Cote and Jocelyne Auger
Thank you for doing a great job as usual! Your marketing expertise and negotiating skills are second to none.
Just a word to let you and your clients know that Susan and I have been delighted with your help and sales abilities. With respect to both the sale of our home a few years ago and your recent sale of our home this past year you moved quickly and aggressively and were able to motivate buyers to meet us at excellent prices. I am pleased to recommend your name to vendors looking for a strong, effective closer.
S.S. & M.L.
You helped us sell our home within in a week - and me to buy another, in another week. Your advice in presenting the house was excellent, your practical assistance in putting it into effect valuable,and your expertise in marketing unquestionable. We especially recognized your negotiating skills in persuading the purchaser to accept our price, notwithstanding his inexplicable absence on the night the offer was presented, and persuading the vendor to accept my first offer which was lower than the sale price for comparable homes. It was a pleasure working with you - it was more than a pleasure. It was fun. And it was efficient. I will certainly not hesitate to recommend you to friends and family who may be moving.
Alan and I want to convey our thanks and appreciation for your professionalism during the recent sale of our house. You were very thorough, always available, and most sensitive to the needs of our family. We were impressed with your speed, efficiency, and easygoing personality combined with smart business savvy, which has obviously helped you achieve such success in your industry. We would not hesitate to recommend you to our friends and colleagues.
