Ruth and the C21!Award team has represented my family on two transactions now. I had initially listed the last one myself as a broker, but after a month we had minimal traffic and no offers. I decided to switch it to Ruth based on our prior experience. It turnout to be the best decision I've made in a long time.

Ruth helped us do minor staging on the property, and within 1 week of listing we had an offer above list. It was a tough deal as the buyer was contingent, but Ruth and her team navigated the process well and we closed on time.

Ruth Has great personal touch and her teams is awesome. The communication level is perfect for me and is not too much or too little. Other agents we've had in the past were one or the other - she found the right balance of telling us every gory detail and keep us apprised of status.

I highly recommend Ruth and her team for listing your home!
