My experience with Ruth Pugh was amazing especially with Sherry Roberts , she went far and beyond to help me out to get the house of my dream I was in Texas and purchased a house in California , and because of her everything went smooth and easy on top of her help, she recommended the best lender ever American Preferred Lender, long story short those guys know what they doing they will not ask for unnecessary extra paperwork that pretty much every other lender will ask you for it. Also I felt Sherry dealing with me as if she was buying the house for herself she took all the efforts to get me the best deal on the house I was very satisfied with her services and I will recommended her for anyone want to purchase a house Less ...

After deciding to sell our home, we interviewed a couple of realtors and decided on the Ruth Pugh group. In hindsight, this was the best choice we could have made. They told us exactly what we needed to do to the house to get it sold. Ruth presented us with local comps to help educate us with the local market and a week later we had accepted an offer and sold our home! Dan Tomasi handled the negotiations and was very thorough and negotiated the deal we were all excited about. Our house was on 4 acres and going into this I thought would be tough to sell. The Ruth Pugh group and Dan Tomasi got it sold in a little over a week! We were very fortunate to have them on our side and would highly recommend them if you are looking to sell/buy your next home!

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 I to Ruth based on our prior experience. It turnout to be the best decision I've made in a long time. Ruthhelped 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! Less ... More

To describe me as a buyer would be that I only have a certain amount of money and I want what I want! Aren't we all like that! Well Ruth paired me up with the best Real Estate Agent ever Prerna Sujan, and Mortgage Consultant David Paladino at CMG Financial. I wanted Downtown San Diego, in my budget,with a view, a patio and no super high HOA's. This is not an easy feat in this area. David figured out my budget, worked all the money and loan angles and Prerna worked tirelessly looking for matching places. It helped too that she totally got my style and knew what I would go for and what I would say no way to, and David answered all the finance questions I had, and quickly too. I'm happy to report we snagged the absolutley best place and exactly what I wanted! Downtown, in my budget and honestly a very nice sharp looking place! I just want to say that they made it work for my needs and I truely believe they treat eveyone as inviduals with different needs and wants and will get you into what your heart desires, I would recommend them to anyone and everyone. One last note, one of the WOW factors for me was how state of the art their agents and tools are, we did so much on-line, text, docusign, etc. and when you go to the office you're looking at homes on big tv's screens, I mean they're totally digital!

I have nothing but good things to say about Ruth and her entire group. They were all so nice, helpful and supportive. I have never had an easier escrow experience than when I sold my house. Ruth and her group quickly addressed any issue that came up. If you are thinking about selling your home, you should seriously call Ruth.

A DIFFICULT SHORT SALE WITH NO HASSLES FOR US. 4 liens on the house amounting to double the sale price. Ruth dealt with the sellers tenants who had not paid rent in months and got them to vacate the premises on time and once again no hassles for us. Ruth and her team come highly recommended by us. She is now selling our rental houses.

My wife and I were very happy with how Christa handled our side of the transaction considering she was selling the home that belonged to her friend. She was very thorough and we always felt that we were being treated very fairly and she was representing us as well as the seller. I have already recommended you as a result.

We had to find a condo/townhouse in a hurry because we sold our home much faster than expected. The Ruth Pugh group pulled out all the stops to make this happen. We were able to move from Burbank into our new home in San Diego in record time. I felt that we were handled like VIP's and I respect the extra mile they went to make sure we would not be homeless.

Ruth and Dan (and Crystal) work tirelessly to close quickly. The first deal Ruth and Dan did for us was a house they SOLD WITHIN 30 DAYS from the time we initially called them. That is insanely quick! They just closed on a condo for us too and worked with our tenants to do all the legwork for us. Besides being outstanding agents, they have a huge network so they have seem to find buyers that other offices wouldn't find as quickly. Thanks Ruth and Dan for being so awesome! Shala and Dennis

Great home-buying experience with Ray Girulat and the team at Ruth Pugh-21st Century. Constant accessibility and responsiveness, professionalism and expertise were among the qualities we appreciated while working with Ray. Negotiations were potentially stressful, but Ray kept our best interest in mind at all times, and ensured we were happy with the outcome - negotiating the purchase of our dream home in our dream neighborhood. In fact, afterwards we recommended him to our parents in the sale of their home, who then immediately sold it with extreme ease. Thanks to Ray and the Ruth Pugh group! We recommend them highly.

Professional, personable, perfect!!! Ruth and her Team know this business and market place like no other! Her Team puts forth an amazing effort and it's clear they LOVE what they do... They made this very difficult process an easy one for me. Ruth and her Team were along side me the entire way, and there are very few businesses that can say that let alone do it! She did, and they did! If and when I ever sell my home, Ruth and her Team will be my relator, period.

We worked with Gladis Akers with the Ruth Pugh Team and had an excellent experience. We had the best customer service one could hope for. Gladis was able to get us a great price and a speedy closing. We are so happy with our new home. This is a tough market and I am positive the only reason we have our dream home is because of the actions Gladis took.

My wife and I have had the pleasure of meeting Ruth and some of her team. From the beginning of our short sale, Leann and Reema stayed in constant contact with us, explaining the process and where the sale was at any particular time. Ruth and her team are very professional as well as friendly to their clients. I would recommend them to anyone looking to sale or buy a home. Thank you .. Jane and Frank Folsom Ca

Once I understood the short sale process and realized that my agent had moved on to a different job, I was able to communicate directly with the ruth pugh group who were extremely helpful and responsive to all my calls, questions and concerns. When there was a last minute problem with the water heater when I was out of town, they made sure it was taken care of. They provided me with information regardinging me the legalities of the short sale, and did protect my interests during this very difficult time. If you are doing a short sale, I would advise you to work directly with the short sale team, rather than the listing realtor who may not necessarily have your best interests in mind or be knowledgeable about the process.

I have personally purchased and sold several homes with Ruth Pugh over the years. Her service, knowledge and ability to out perform the competition has helped my investment firm purchase renovate and sell just under $10mil in Real Estate in 2012. We look forward to building a stronger business relationship with her and her incredible team. I would recommend her to anyone wishing to buy or sell Real Estate in San Diego. She is a native to the town and can educate any level of buyer on every nook and cranny of Real Estate in this town. Besides that she lives and breathes Real Estate. It is truly her passion and I have yet to see someone work harder than her in this industry. Very truly yours... Trident Holdings and Investments, LLC. Less ... More

Sheila was great in helping make our purchase in San Diego.  She had detailed knowledge about the location we were looking at purchasing.  We looked at multiple homes and got some great advice.  When a new development began she got us in to review the homes to see what they were like.  She helped find us a home that fit our life style that was close to down town.  Eventually we found a home that fit our needs and we're extremely pleased.

I was more than 60% upside down in my townhouse, and after 2 failed loan modification attempts under my belt, I was paralyzed by unanswered questions regarding tax & credit report implications of a short sale. I met Ruth and began asking her questions, and she invited me down to her office to talk about the "what ifs". The next day I showed up with 2 pages of questions, and she and her associates sat down and answered all of them. After I sought legal & tax advice, I decided to list my house with her and had multiple offers the first week. Ruth knows everyone in the industry - she is a very savvy business woman with a "glass is 1/2 full" attitude and an amazing amount of energy. She and her team kept me calm through the whole process, and that?s no easy feat because I'll be the first to tell you, I am a high maintenance client ? I need to know the details, I will double check your work, question everything, and I need constant feedback. During the negotiation process, I worked closely with Dan Tomasi in her office - LOVE HIM! In my situation, the banks were difficult to work with because they were really slow. (If this is any indication of slow, I referred 2 of my neighbors to Ruth, and she had their short sales completed long before mine!) Some of the short sale programs and processes were so new and uncharted, even the bank reps needed a little schooling. Dan went the distance and kept fighting for me, he always protected my interests, and through it all I made a new friend. I highly recommend Ruth Pugh and her team. They are professionals at what they do, and in this dynamic real estate market, you need to make sure you are represented by a team who keeps up with the constantly shifting real estate landscape, who know the rules, and can reinvent a strategy on a moment's notice. I hope to buy again, and when I do, I know who to call. :-) Less ... More

Ruth has sold eight houses for us in the past two months and all eight were smooth transactions start to finish! Ruth and her team are great to work with. Ruth gives accurate pricing assessments, her listings look top notch, and she always does a great job getting the price we want. I will definitely use Ruth again in the future and highly recommend her to others!
