“Ruth Ann went above & beyond in finding me the condo that was perfect at that time & then 5 years later, she helped me to sell that condo and buy my dream home. She not only was unprecedented in her help with the process, but she guided me on renovations and various other aspects. Throughout this grueling process, she took a lot of the stress and burden off of me and continues to help me with anything that comes up. She is more than simply the hardest working real estate agent, she is someone that becomes your advocate and best friend in your time of need. I would never use anyone else.”

Buyer x2 and Seller – Jennifer Steiner

“Ruth Ann defines the term “above and beyond.”  We purchased a house while living 300 miles away and she was an amazing help, as we flew in and out of town, and as we just did things from afar. She took care of inspections, repairs and helped us coordinate all aspects of a complicated sale. She is completely unflappable and helped us make good choices when we got frazzled during the process. She was also able to keep track of the details and make sure we missed nothing. We are forever grateful and would work with her again and again.”

Buyer – Joanna B.

“We have worked with Ruth Ann in buying one house and selling one house in Santa Barbara and in both cases she was excellent. She is very knowledgeable and has good judgment about housing decisions and choices. She makes herself available by phone and text and responds quickly to any requests. She is able to move fast and get paperwork done and arrangements made for fast results. Although she is the consummate professional and takes her work seriously, she has a great sense of humor which is important in the house business.”

We recommend her to all prospective home buyers! Thank you again for everything!”

“I know a good thing when I see it. Ruth Ann represented me on the sale of my long time home on the Mesa. Not only did she help me handle the emotional side of selling my home, she was able to get $89,000 over thesandy nash small appraised value! By using her great marketing skills, the property sold in record time while other houses sat on the market for months.

When I was ready to buy again, there was no question Ruth Ann would be my agent and she outdid herself again. She suggested a property I never would have thought of and helped me get a great deal on it. After we closed, she stayed involved and helped me get everything settled. Whether you’re planning to sell or buy, Ruth Ann is really your best choice.”

“Ruth Ann helped me buy a new town home in Santa Barbara. The transaction became extremely complicated by City Regulations. Not only did she support me with kid gloves, she persisted all the way to City Hall. this was a move for me to a new town and I felt that I had a team on my side wrapped up in one honest, hardworking and elegantly persistent agent. I would recommend that anyone use Ruth Ann to represent them through this process that is one of the most important transactions that one can go through.”

“About five months ago I closed and moved into my new condo. Ruth Ann was great during the entire process. She is high integrity, always professional, and really knows the market . There were definitely some bumps in the road, but Ruth Ann and her team helped me to navigate them as smoothly as possible. I highly recommend her to anyone who is looking to buy a house or condo.”

Buyer – Mikki Reilly

Throughout two years of searching for just the right house, and despite a long, specific list of home buyer “must haves”— Ruth Ann was eminently patient and professional. Ruth Ann has a remarkable to hear a buyer’s requirements and to promptly identify potential properties. The search ended with a call saying “I have found your house, get here ASAP.” Forty-eight hours later, an offer and acceptance; and 30 days later a move-in. Now happily settled in the most charming house and neighborhood, looking forward to being long time Carp residents. Note to all future Santa Barbara County home buyers: call Ruth Ann to find your perfect home!

Buyer – May Osher

“Ruth Ann basically did the whole process on her own in getting my wife and I our first beautiful home in Goleta. She was on the ball with everything, even putting pressure on the banks to get their stuff done on time. Not only that, but she is extremely friendly and helpful. She builds a great relationship with you, and truly knows what you are looking for. I will be recommending her to anyone I know that even has the slightest thought on purchasing a home.”
