“Ruth Ann Bowe is the best.She helped me locate the perfect home and made the purchase of my first home a great experience. She is very knowledgeable and was extremely patient with my endless questions and concerns. I purchased during a very busy time in my life and she handled everything for me. I will always use Ruth Ann as my Realtor and recommend her to all my friends and clients. Thanks Ruth Ann!” – Sally R.
“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.” – Jen S.
“Ruth Ann sold two properties and helped me buy one. All three times she was professional, knowledgeable and got me the best deals possible. The first property she sold we got approximately $150,000 more than another agent wanted to list it for! I highly recommend Ruth Ann whenever you need a great realtor! She is the best!” – Sandy N.
“Ruth Ann helped us buy our first home in Santa Barbara — it was a great experience. Seven years later, she checked in with me about a house on the market that she thought would be a fit for us, and today we are living in that very house. Ruth Ann and her team are knowledgeable, thoughtful, caring, hard-working, and also just all around great folks. I highly recommend her real estate services.” – Elizabeth M.
“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.” – Mikki R.
