Teresa M. Young recommends Pearl Ahlquist-Ruby


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.

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

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.

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.

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.

Client / multiple transactions

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.

"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.

Jacob did a great job for my brother and me. The sale of our house was quick, smooth, and above asking price. Jacob answered all of our questions immediately and without hesitation; he obviously knows his business. My brother and I are both quite pleased.

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.

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.

Raymond Peters recommends Carl Graffenstatte

Construction Manager

We were house hunting on our own with a mobile app and came across Carl's Open House signage a few blocks from our residence and ended up meeting him by happenstance. We appreciated his candor and decided to have him show us more than several other properties in the area that met our criteria.

Carl was there for us at every step of the process. He was prompt and courteous. He made our schedule work and that ultimately had us come full circle back to the property where we originally met him. That is now our new home. He made it a seamless transition and will be invited to our "House Warming" party. He did a great job!
