I need to let the world know about Ruth Santamaria!
She was the reason we were able to sell our home quickly, at a great price, with almost no contingencies and zero last minute snafus.
I should say that I was in a related business for many years (mortgage lending) and have many personal friends who are excellent real estate agents. Many. I myself have a Broker license. But when we decided to sell our home, we knew we needed a local agent who had a large circle of influence, a dynamic internet presence and the attitude and ability of a true professional. That would ONLY be Ruth.
Any buyer and any seller will tell you that presentation is everything. I agree with this – and will add that presentation includes attitude. A true professional displays a “can-do” attitude, a positive tone plus one other especially important feature: EXPERIENCE. Ruth has all of these and more. She was always available, helpful and offered excellent staging advice. We followed all her suggestions and directions and clearly, they paid off.
In the grips of the pandemic panic, Ruth got our home sold! Just three weeks after listing! We were incredibly happy with our final price. Ruth did high stakes negotiating on our behalf in terms of price, timing, concessions (none) and in just 3 weeks we closed escrow.
One other thing; when Ruth calls you during this process, she is calling to update you on what has happened behind the scenes and to keep you abreast on all of the issues SHE HAS ALREADY HANDLED. No reason to feel anxious when you see she is calling. I learned this after the first few calls.
If you want to sell your home, just call Ruth. She is the best. (I am happily writing from our new home out of state).

There are not enough words to express how wonderful Ruth is! We worked with Ruth to sell our former home and now purchase a new home. She came over and spent a good amount of time getting to know us and determining what our needs were and helping us to prepare our home to be sold. She helped us stage our home beautifully and had amazing photos taken for the listing. She even offered to help us move things out! She also connected us with her lender and got us prequalified right away to begin our new home search. We knew from our first meeting that we would be using Ruth and that we would be in the most capable of hands.

Ruth was available to answer all our questions during the selling process and was extremely diligent in getting feedback from potential buyers in order to show our former home in the very best light. When offers came in for our home, Ruth was in contact with the incoming realtors in a timely fashion and provided valuable insight to us as first-time sellers on our best options. She is extremely knowledgeable and could answer any question that we threw at her. She is also hilarious, honest, and a genuinely enjoyable person to go through what can be a difficult process with.

Ruth more than exceeded all our expectations throughout the entire selling process and we are excited to continue working with her to find a new home!

Ruth is amazing! We were moving from outside of the area and Ruth spent a lot of time showing us around the different neighborhoods and areas that fit our criteria. She was always quick to respond to any questions we had and made the process very easy for us. You will not be disappointed when you work with Ruth.

We have worked with Ruth over the last ten years and through many real estate transactions we have come to know her as a very hard working, creative and extremely knowledgeable professional. And, we have come to depend on her recommendations as she has time after time put quality deals together for us. But most important, we feel she is always looking out for our best interest in every transaction.....she feels more like a partner than an agent to us.

And, not only that, Ruth's a lot of fun to work with!

We highly recommend Ruth and can't imagine ever using anyone else....

Thanks Ruth!

Ruth helped us search for and purchase our first home. She was amazing while guiding us through the process, and taught us what we needed to know in order to make a smart decision. Her reputation with others in the industry allowed us to put our best face forward when we needed to stand out in a competitive market. We very much enjoyed our experience working with Ruth and will work with her in the future.

Ruth is an incredible real estate agent. We have utilized her for multiple deals, and we seem to find the ones with a lot of complexity involved. Ruth navigated us through to a successful close, overcoming obstacles as they came up to ensure things stayed on track. She is an experienced pro who has seen every situation related to real estate transactions. Highly recommend trusting her with with the sale or purchase of your home.
