Pearl was amazing. From the very start to the very end. When I buy my next home she is the one I’ll be calling!
Clinical Support Coordinator
Pearl taught me how to make my credit work for me. But in order for that to happen she gave me the tools to clear my credit of any debt and the meaning to having credit cards. If there's any one I know that would be wanting to purchase a home I would definitely refer them to Pearl.
Project Manager
I had a very limited budget to purchase a house for my uncle (considered an investment by the lender.) Pearl worked diligently to ensure I did not look at complete ramshackle houses that required more work than I could afford to take on while also ensuring I did not look at house in neighborhoods that are unsafe for my uncle.

Once we found a house she pushed back on the sellers when they wanted me to pay for all of their fees including the ones that sellers traditionally pay for anyway. Then when the lender did not give me the full seller's credit that we had negotiated (submitted 24 days prior to closing) on the eve before signing and closing of escrow Pearl conferenced on all of my calls to the lender. As we escalated up the chain of command with the lender Pearl held fast and together we were finally able to get lender concession and a refund for the difference between the seller's credit Pearl had negotiated for repairs on the house and what the lender was allowing me to take.

I completely recommend Pearl as your real estate agent. She will go to bat and fight for you whether it is with the sellers or the lenders. She will take care of you throughout the entire process to ensure you're well informed and the house you're considering is both within budget and in the best location for your needs.
Pearl Ahlquist-Ruby did a great job making our dream house came true, I do recomend Pearl because she will help you find the house that you want and she will always be there for you.
IT Systems Engineer
Pearl’s attention to detail was truly a testament of professionalism. Although she was totally committed as a professional realtor, her personal connection towards and understanding the urgency of our family needs was amazing. If you need a realtor that’s truly on your side...just say Pearl your are my realtor.
I would highly recommend Pearl Ahlquist-Ruby to anyone wanting to buy a new home! We needed to moved in 60 days and Pearl found us a home in less than 35 days. Pearl was thorough, she walked us through the process so we felt confident in every decision. Most of all she understood our wants and needs, and was with us every step of the way; she even checked in on us weeks after we bought our home.
Home Buyer
“The Full Circle”
Pearl was recommended by a friend when we had to short sale our house around 6 years ago. It was a very difficult time in our family’s lives. She made sure no one took advantage of us and minimized our worries during the process. Then years later when the house we were renting became available we needed someone to help us react fast and also look out for our best interest. She went out of her way to do everything possible so we didn’t have to deal with our property manager who was also working as the owner’s realtor. At the beginning of the process we knew it would take 30 days to close but with her “get it done attitude”, dedication and knowledge of her job we closed in 19 days. We are extremely thankful that she came into our lives 6 years ago and we would highly recommend her to anyone who is interested in buying a home now or in the future.
Pearl is amazing to work with. No matter if you are selling a large home or small one. You will know your in good hands when you see her in action doing her magic. She has sold a few of our properties and worked through any bumps in the road with the buyers, banks & escrow! I highly recommend her as your agent. She’s a true professional that looks out for her clients.
I never even met Ruby but got a good feeling once I met her on the phone, she was well informed, sold my unit, had it staged, worked my workers I had in the area, got it closed,,,,, shes good,,,,,,,,,,no games,, cooperative
Pearl did an excellent job for me. after losing our first house we offered on, Pearl immediately came up with another we liked even more. I would certainly recommend contacting her if you're looking for a home or any other kind of real estate

Legislative Director
Pearl is a wonderful real estate agent. She provides us with her expertise but allows clients to make their own decisions and what feels right to them. Additionally, she’ll make sure you move into the perfect home - Pearl literally pulled the weeds out from under my new home!
Home buyer
Pearl really knows homes. She has a good heart, and is not in this business 'just for more money'... she wants you to find the right home for your needs. Real estate is a busy profession, but Pearl makes the time so you can get the home you desire in a reasonable time frame. She is driven, quick, and efficient, and she definitely advocates for you during the process. She even meets you after hours when needed. As a first-time home buyer, I appreciated her knowledge and tips with both the process and home improvements. I would recommend her services to others.

Home Seller
Pearl was easily the best realtor I have ever worked with. She was knowledgeable about market conditions, always available, and stayed on top of our home from before we listed it, until it sold. I was extremely satisfied with my experience and would recommend Pearl to anyone I knew was selling a home.
House wife
She was very professional. I would hire her again and refer all my friends.
House wife
Pearl was a great help to me getting out of my home of 30 years that needed a lot of work!! She came, she saw, we had two cash offers within 36 hours!!! Amazing!! She also arranged it so that I could leave what I no longer needed. 15 days later, escrow closed and i'm out of what I thought was an impossible situation and headed to my retirement dream of living in TN. Thanks Pearl for taking such good care of me!!!
Pearl has helped me and my family find the perfect home for us. She has been there every step of the way. We are so grateful to have her in our lives ! She is very professional and knowledgeable about what she does and you can tell she really loves what she does ! We wouldn't have been able to have done it with out her and her team. I will recommend her to anyone ! Thanks Pearl.
Pearl was great to work with. She is very personable and knows how to get the job done. I will definitely recommend Pearl Ahlquist-Ruby to family and friends.
Pearl was recommended to us by a friend, and she ended up living up to everything that we had hoped for. She helped us in buying our next house while simotaniouly selling our current home. This is not an easy job, but she did more than her fair share in keeping both sides progressing though the process. Pearl and her team were amazing, and I highly recommend her!
I would highly recommend Pearl Ahlquist Ruby . She knows her business and is very caring about her clients. I'm so glad she has been there for me and that she will be my friend/realtor for life.

I would highly recommend Pearl....she's amazing, caring, energetic and knows her business! Almost the moment, it went up for sale, there were several people interested. It sold very quickly......with, at least 5 or more offers. Pearl got me, the best price, several thousand more, then asking price. She made sure I had plenty of time, to move, considering I'd lived there 30 or more years. My husband had died Dec 1 and I felt she was like a family member, helping me through that. There's no better realtor then a Pearl. I consider her a good friend.
