    Jill gave Ruth 5 stars out of 5
    Ruth is an exceptionally outstanding professional without who's help in an extremely fast paced market, we would not have a had a sniff of a chance at purchasing a home. She had her ear to the ground and was proactive every step of the way. She is someone with vast experience, a delicate persuasiveness and steadfast determination, all qualities that made our dream home a reality. In gratitude, Jill and Steve

    Ruth listed our home as a realtor and became a trusted friend in the process. I highly recommend her for her constant professionalIsm, attention to detail and availability, especially since we were not present. She made us feel that our interests were her main concern. Her calming demeanor reassured us that she would find a solution to any problem that might arise. We are very grateful for Ruth's guidance through the enotional sale of our home.

    We couldn't be happier with the service provided by Ruth Gribbin-Schmitt in the listing and selling of our vacant land in Port Ludlow. She came up with awesome ideas, suggestions and listing information that worked so well with our needs. She is truly experienced in all aspects of Real Estate listing and selling.

    Ruth has been amazing through out the process of selling and buying. Ruth is not only a very good listener but worked extremely hard to make all our pieces come together, Jefferson County is very unique and Ruth was able to lead us to areas that fit our needs. I would recommend her to any and all. It was our privilege to work with her. We feel so thankful for everything she did for us.

    Ruth was truly incredible! She could not have been more professional, dedicated to our needs, responsive, and supportive during every phase of the process. She listens, she motivates, brings a great deal of knowledge to the process and devotes a lot of time to her and your success. It's hard to imagine anyone being disappointed while using her services. She is also a delight to get to know. We could not have been more pleased with Ruth and her guidance. My wife and I would highly recommend her

    Linda & Tom gave Ruth 5 stars out of 5
    We moved to Port Ludlow from Hawaii. I contacted Ruth before we were finished getting our Hawaii house ready for sale, and she kept in touch with us for months until I was ready to come to Washington to pick out our new house. She was friendly, relaxed, and thorough. All my questions were answered, she gave me a good overview of the community, and was happy to take me back to homes two or three times until I narrowed down my choices. I would definitely recommend this experienced, professional, realtor to anyone moving to or selling in the Port Ludlow area.

    Ruth started helping us months before we were ready to buy. She kept us up to date on houses that came up for sale that fit our category. Once we sold our house in Hawaii, my wife flew over and spent 5 days looking and a number of houses, some two or three times. Ruth was always enthusiastic and helpful as she pointed out pros and cons for each house. Once we picked the house, she was thorough in explaining the offer procedure, presented the offer and counter offers, then followed through making sure each step in the sale process was completed on time. In the end we were able to close earlier. Ruth made the whole purchase enjoyable and stress-free. We'd recommend Ruth for your next home purchase.

    Ruth was without a doubt relentless on finiding us our dream home. She took into consideration the size of our family and our desired locations. We received emails of new properties that just hit the market which then gave us the chance to jump on our dream home. The market these days you don t really have tons of time to wait. The whole closing process was fast and smooth. I would highly recommend Ruth to anyone searching for a home.

    Pamela & Charlie gave Ruth 5 stars out of 5
    Ruth was very nice to work with. She identified homes within our price range and which had features that we had indicated were important to us. She took the time to give us a tour of the amenities that Port Ludlow had to offer and was responsive and personable. She also allowed us to be assisted by another agent, Karena Wells, when our limited time frame presented an hindrance to her being our exclusive agent. We were well served by her and she represented the agency very well

    Colleen gave Ruth 5 stars out of 5
    Ruth was amazing to work with! It was very difficult and emotional to deal with selling the home of my mother who had passed away. This was not a happy or pleasant experience but if anybody could make us feel better during the process, it was Ruth. She went above and beyond what we ever would've expected from a real estate agent. She vacuumed and kept the house clean, sweeping leaves in the courtyard and meeting workmen for home repair issues. What other real estate agent does that? She was a great advocate for us and worked many hours overtime...even late night after-hours and on weekends to address our concerns and questions. We really couldn't imagine working with anybody else! We felt extremely blessed to have found her.

    Brett & Paula gave Ruth 5 stars out of 5
    Ruth worked so hard on our sale I would say she went more than the extra mile. We ran into a road block because of the private road our home was located on. But Ruth worked with the title company to find an old document that had been filed with the county 25 years ago and that was all we needed to complete the sale. I would absoultly recommend Ruth and Best Realty for any real estate transactions.

    Ruth was tireless in helping us find a great home in a very short time frame. She asked great questions, showed us numerous options in our price range , returned our calls and answered our questions quickly and just made the process a lot less stressful than we could have imagined. She was calm, courteous, attentive and professional and we would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone that is looking for a home in this area!
