If you are looking for a home Pearl is the one to see. She got us in our dream house. We told her what we wanted and she found it for us. She has also become a friend.

Matthew was a champion from start to finish. He was accommodating to my very
difficult work schedule, communicating when I was available. This was huge for me. I will be recommending him to my family and friends. You won't regret having him as your trusted professional.

Debra Noble recommends Jacob Kurtz

As a newcomer to investment properties, we had many questions and much apprehension. Jake has been so helpful to us, sharing his knowledge and experience from his many years as a realtor/investor. He taught us what to look for in the properties we viewed, to calculate the necessary repairs and to estimate the costs involved. After much searching, we finally purchased our first investment property with confidence. I would highly recommend Jacob Kurtz to anyone interested in buying/selling. Jake is not only an excellent realtor, but we consider him a mentor and a friend.

As a newcomer to property investment, we had many questions and much apprehension. Jake has been so helpful to us through this process. He provided the guidance and assurance we needed. His years of experience were quite evident as we viewed different properties. Jake showed us what to look for in properties, what repairs needed to be made and what the cost would be to complete those repairs. All of these attributes gave us the confidence to make a our first purchase of investment property! I would highly recommend Jacob Kurtz to anyone looking to buy or sell property. Jake is much more than a realtor, he has become a mentor and a friend.
Thank you Jake

Matthew Stewart is always prompt when returning calls, emails., or texts. He was very helpful while going through the purchase of our first home. We recommend Matthew if you want an expert. Matthew took the time to explain the process and kept us up to date on new listings and what to expect. Matthew was very professional, skillful and knowledgeable.

Nancy DeVore recommends Jacob Kurtz


Jake was very thorough through all aspects for the sale of my home. I am very grateful it happened so fast. Now I do not have to worry about draining my RAINY-DAY-FUND. He found a group to help me pack and dispose of things I no longer needed in my new home. He even called with a follow-up call to be sure every thing was going OK.

diana dalton recommends Matthew Stewart


We have dealt with many different realtors in our lifetime. Many (not all) were a disappointment, unresponsive, unknowledgeable with real estate process which resulted in some unpleasant and costly outcomes. Well, working with Matthew in our last real estate transaction was an absolute pleasure. He explained his team's abilities which exceeded our expectations and provided us multiple offers from the open house. We highly recommend any one interested in selling their real estate to consider the services extended by Matthew and his team of professionals,

Matthew represented the buyers who purchased our home, helped us with the purchase of our new home, and is representing our buyers with the sale of their home. He is always available, always returns calls, and is very informed and has the knowledge to answer all of our questions. I would highly encourage everyone to use his services. He is the BEST realtor and now he is family. Thank you Matthew.

Shelley Downs recommends Matthew Stewart


My husband and I just purchased our "first" home, together, with the help of Matthew Stewart, of Realty World. Because time was of the essence, Matt ended up representing both the seller and us. He did an excellent, fair and professional job. He was very quick to answer our calls, get answers to our questions, really anything we needed. I would highly recommend him. He was just great to work with!

Jake is a true professional and has the knowledge and expertise to get the job done.
Jake sold my house in a short period of time while all along keeping me posted and helping me to deal with so many hoops to go through, i.e., inspections, an open house, and loads and loads of paperwork to understand and deal with.
It was a pleasure having him as my agent.

Vlad & Galina recommend Matthew Stewart

Matthew was our real estate agent during the time period in which we were in the process of selling our home. He was one of the most professional realtors we have ever known and a pleasure to work with. Always very polite and friendly. Matthew was always willing to help out or to answear a question that we had, despite it being after his business hours. He also sold our house quickly in about a week or so. For these reasons, We would highly recommend Matthew to anyone who needs a real estate agent.

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.

Jake is the first and only Real Estate Professional I reach out to for any real estate transaction. His experience and dedication are indispensable whereas all phases of the process are concerned, plus everyone ancillary to the transaction make the process carefree and efficient. Start with Jacob Kurtz; if he isn't the best choice for the job, he'll gladly point you to what organization is. I enjoy our relationship as much as any I have.

Cheryl Klippenstein recommends Carl Graffenstatte


I cannot say enough positive things regarding the service I was provided by my realtor Carl Graffenstatte. The first thought that comes to mind is professionalism. From the very first phone call until the final transaction he has been a true professional. He was also very intuitive to my likes and dislikes. I particularly appreciate that he was easy to contact, got a very quick response, and was very helpful with any concern that I would have. I would highly recommend Carl to anyone looking for a realtor and would definitely use his expertise in the future.

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.

Kailah Brost recommends Matthew Stewart

We met Matt at an open house he was hosting and hit it right off. He understood immediately all we were looking for, even though our needs were unique in some way. He got to work quickly helping us look through the small market, and keeping his eye out for anything that was just coming on that would fit our needs. He was up feont an honest with us about every house we saw, and the market we were in. He worked hard for us, and what a day it was when we finally found "the one!" Matt then worked hard for us in all the negotiations, any insecurities we had, through the inspection and everything else that goes into being in escrow. We never once felt alone though this process. We knew we had a friend and advocate on pur side through it all!

Alan & Diana Loeffler recommend Matthew Stewart

We were interviewing realtors and Matthew came out. He was prepared, informed, and had a knowledge of our area. Living in the country can be hard for some realtors, but he has lived in both country and city. He had past, present, and future information for us. He uses all social media and that reaches more than we realized. He sent postcards out to everyone thru out the entire area, we even got one. Not only is he professional, he is available, personable, and a pleasure to work with. He also helped us with the house we purchased. If we ever need another realtor, it will be Matthew Stewart!!
