I've worked with Ruth for almost a year now, and she has been nothing but wonderful. Extremely hard working, very knowledgeable and always helpful and upbeat. Most importantly, her integrity and honesty is unquestionable -- which I think is critical for the home buying process. She has been a complete pleasure to work with!

None. We connected, but it did not work out.
Ruth was so wonderful in helping us find a rental and potential purchase of a home. We ended up not moving to the area, but she stuck with us through the whole process and was always willing to help in any way she could. I'd highly recommend her!

Ruth is a true professional, very helpful and knowledgeable and her willingness to help me locate the right property was more than expected. I recommend Ruth and Dan to anyone who is looking to find the best property suited for them. Thank you Ruth and Dan for your efforts and time spent with me and helping me locate the property which I know is just perfect for me.

We LOVED working with Ruth! She was informative, knowledgable, and always willing to work with our schedules showing homes. There is an ease working with Ruth. We never felt rushed or pressured to buy or quickly find a home. It was a very natural and easy home purchase for us, and we credit that to Ruth. At one point the seller had not accepted our offer, but somehow Ruth was able to negotiate, and work it out. Once we were under contract, Ruth was on top of every detail and next step, always staying in touch with us and guiding the process. Our loan officer mentioned that Ruth was one of the best realtors she has worked with. We feel so blessed to have met Ruth and are so grateful. This is our third home purchase and by far our best experience.! We HIGHLY recommend Ruth to anyone looking for a home. Less ... More

Helped me buy home
My first contact with Ruth was through Zillow for a home listed in Woodland Park. Ruth was always willing to show us any home we were wanting to look at. Some of these requests were on short notice when we were driving around and looking at houses on weekends. Ruth was always willing to do her very best to meet our requests to see these homes. We were first time home buyers so we relied on Ruth's expertise for all phases of our search and the actual process of our eventual home purchase. Ruth was always on top of our required steps in our loan process, was always prompt in returning any/all of my emails with my many questions and was always on time for every showing. I feel very fortunate to have met her and we will definitely use her as our realtor for our next home purchase. I highly recommend her. Thanks for being there for us through the whole process Ruth !!

Helped me buy home
Ruth is awesome!! We would use her for any real estate purchases or sales. She is a really nice person as well!! She responded very quickly to any & all questions or concerns. We would DEFINITELY recommend her! Our experience only lasted for 1 month because Ruth was the last real estate agent that was necessary. She walked through the house with us three times, including during the inspection. If I would have asked her to hold my hand throughout the entire month-long process, I'm absolutely sure that she would have! Ruth is very knowledgeable about more rural living, which was appreciative, since it is our first rural experience. Thank you Ruth!! Roger & Kim Less ... More

Ruth Spence is great and very helpful. She went out of her way to help us. She got us in to see the house we scheduled with her, and then got us in to see another house, unscheduled, right away. We appreciated her taking her time to go above and beyond to serve us. Also we were having reouble with financing, and she gave us a referral who also was very helpful. We would recommend Ruth to everyone.

Ruth was always professional and helpful throughout the process of purchasing our new home. There was never a time when I didn't think she was working for my best interest. Never had a concern with her honesty or integrity throughout the entire process. Ruth always kept me aware of our upcoming deadline dates. In the beginning of the process, Ruth showed my wife and I seven homes in one day and during the entire time Ruth never missed a beat. She was extremely knowledgeable of the routes and homes we looked at. Finally, I appreciated her attention to detail when it came to showing us homes. Outstanding! Thank you so much for making our purchase so easy and pleasant. Less ... More

Ruth assisted us with purchasing a home as a buyer's agent. As part of home searches in different communities in Colorado, we have worked with 3 different agents. Hands down, Ruth was the most helpful in this process. She's honest, open, responsive, trustworthy, and focused on serving her clients by listening to their needs and finding a home that fits them. We are very grateful for her efforts.

My finance and my self are currently buying a home from Ruth and we are so pleased and delighted with her character and willingness to go above and beyond. She has included us and communicated with us the entire process, kept us up to date on all important deadlines and informed us both on what to expect next. She is extremely knowledgable and seems to be an ambassador for Woodland Park. She has referred us to several other professionals in the area like; our home inspector, home owner's insurance agent, and even a contractor (her husband) for ideas on future renovations, all of whom have been extremely professional and a pleasure to meet and work with. We are so blessed to have met her and all her associates and will absolutely recommend her and known associates for any and all future business. Thank You Ruth, Shawna and Seth Less ... More

Ruth is the BEST!!! We transitioned from Germany to Colorado, but Ruth kept her communication even when while we were in Germany. She bent over backwards to help us ....spent days taking us from place to place, prepared with a list of houses, snacks and water on our daily journey to find a home. She's dedicated, professional and HONEST! We can't speak highly enough about her! Thank you Ruth for your patience and helping us find the PERFECT place!!!

Very friendly, knowledgeable with a wealth of information at her fingertips. Unlike many realtors we?ve dealt with, Ruth is a true, committed advocate for her customers. As she guides you through the process, know that you?re dealing with a true professional who?s ?got your back? at all times. This realtor comes highly and urgently recommended.

Ruth helped my husband and I find and buy our beautiful home in Colorado. We worked with her for several months as we were out of state buyers. She was our eyes when we couldn't be in Colorado. She was always friendly, professional and always made time for us. I would highly reccomend Ruth if you are in need of a trustworthy, kind real -estate agent who always has your best interest in mind.

My family has been coming to Woodland Park, CO. since the 1960's. Last year we stopped at Merit Realty just to see what was available as we were considering moving to the area in a few years. We were introduced to Ruth Spence and she showed us a great house however, we did not like the area. We did not find anything we liked at that time but we had given her short notice by just walking into her office without prior notice. We still were not planning on moving for two years and just wanted to get an idea of what was available. We returned this past July and again met with Ruth. Knowing that we were returning and had very specific requirements we were looking for in our future home, she researched and showed us a variety of properties meeting our specifications. We found the perfect home and began the closing procedures. Living out of state, there were numerous complications which Ruth did the utmost to simplify for us. She went out of her way to make the entire process as easy as possible and handled many of the unexpected tasks that arose. Due to Ruth's outstanding customer service and expertise, our daughter, who was with us throughout our house-hunting process, is now working with her to locate her dream home in the Woodland Park area. In addition, our son who is currently living in Missouri, is also planning to move to the area in a year or two and will use Ruth as his realtor. We have moved seven times in the past and have never had a realtor that was as professional and personable as Ruth. She was extremely hospitable and considered our every need. I highly recommend Ruth for any real estate need. Less ... More

Ruth responded to my initial request while she was enjoying a weekend off of work. I guess Realtor s never get a minute off!! It was great to have someone who knew the area help my wife and I find our home. She also helped with all the other little details, home buyers really have no clue about. I would recommend Ruth to a anyone.

I would HIGHLY recommend Ruth for your housing/property needs. I posted an inquiry on Zillow and Ruth was the quickest agent to respond. Ruth was willing to meet on my schedule (even later in the evening, during the weekend, and in the mountains). I appreciated how Ruth responded to all my questions immediately to include evenings and weekends! Ruth is very high energy which served me well because she ended up being a huge advocate for my financial needs and concerns of the property in which I purchased. I would highly recommend Ruth to my family and friends! Thanks for all your help and expertise Ruth....you truly made the house purchase an extremely easy one for me! Well done! Less ... More

Ruth, just helped us close on a house. She is very prompt with responses, after my husband found some homes that we wanted to look at, he sent out emails to 4 realtors and she responded quickly and was the only one to respond. She looked for possible homes to look at and she was very open to help us look at homes that we had found on the internet. She is very personable and wonderful to work with. she worked very hard to make time for us to go see homes between other clients. She was always available on weekends, when we had the time to look at homes. Less ... More

We worked with Ruth on a recent purchase in Divide. Having not purchased a home in Colorado before she worked hard to keep us informed about the process and timing. I would work with her again without question. She and Brooke at New Life Mortgage made this the smoothest transaction I have ever had. I appreciate everybody's help and professionalism.

Ruth is definitely the epitome of what a Real Estate Agent should be!! She was just the best at showing us all the homes we had asked to see and we finally found the home or our dreams. We love her and will always highly recommend her to anyone that is looking at moving to the area. WE are thankful that God placed her in our life and we know that He had everything to do with every moment we shared together. Words will never describe how grateful we are!

Ruth was amazingly prepared and enthusiastic in showing me properties based on the fact that I was only available to be in town for a short time. She made time for me, was always positive, and very informative regarding the types of water systems, heating systems and points of interest that made each home special. I would definitely recommend or refer her to anyone for their real estate needs. Thank you Ruth!

Ruth was amazing!! She knew the properties we looked at, and when we put bids on properties, her negotiation skills were by far the best we have seen in a realtor. She would call us right back and would get us the information we needed quickly. She is also very caring, and was never pushy!

With my husband and I being first time home buyers, we had so many questions that came up. Ruth guided us the whole way through this crazy process with such care and professionalism. She kept us informed throughout each step of the way and continues to follow up with us! Words cannot describe how blessed we were to work with her. I can't thank her enough and would highly recommend her to everyone!

Ruth Spence was a combination of professionalism with compassion in regards to representing our interests while buying a home this year. She knew the area well and therefore guided us to the best properties for our needs and desires. She was always available yet never pushy in finding homes for us to view. I would recommend her without hesitation when buying or selling a home.
