Clients are saying:
"Our family was moving out of state rather abruptly. After trying (unsuccessfully) to sell our home ourselves we contacted Jen Ruffner, and she set our mind at ease immediately with her wonderful calm and reassuring demeanor and professional attitude. Jen managed to sell our home at a good price, and made the whole process a lot easier on us. We cannot thank her enough."
"Jen was exceptional. She was patient and knowledgeable and always had our best interest in mind. She answered every question we had and was never afraid to ask the home sellers the tough questions that they may not have wanted to answer. She was absolutely the best and we would recommend her a thousand times over to anyone and everyone."
"Jen was a joy to work with and a calming influence in a very chaotic time. Her thoroughness in all aspects of our sale was a demonstration of her complete knowledge of the real estate business.
Anyone that has the fortunate chance to work with her on their deal will surely be impressed as both my wife and I were"
"Jen was so awesome in helping us find our apartment! She took all of our needs seriously, and was wonderful with my kids, to boot! The thing that I appreciated most about working with Jen was that she pointed out pitfalls I would never have thought of - she really wanted to find the right place for us!"
"I was being relocated by my new employer, and needed to have two agents assess my property for an average to be taken and a price set. Jen was first there, she came to that market assessment with an incredible amount of information about how to market the property, pros and cons of the area, and of course reviewed to establish the market price. The other realtor did not have a chance! Jen has been so incredible throughout this process. I had to go ahead and move before the listing went on MLS, but Jen accommodated any inspections, repairs, etc., that needed to happen. Jen made me fell so comfortable knowing that she was taking care of everything and working to get me top dollar for y property. She sold my condo within 48 hours of the first open house! we got above our target price which was amazing as well! I cannot recommend Jen strongly enough! She is a consummate professional, who also knows how to make you understand that she has your back when it comes to your property and will work diligently to make a good deal for you. You will not be disappointed with Jen as your realtor!"
