Amy B.

After 1.5+ years of working with 2 different realtors and countless offers submitted, we were getting pretty discouraged with the housing market and our hopes to purchase our first home were dwindling. Then enters Travis Ruff. He listened to our needs and wants of our first home and quickly got to work. He found a home that he felt was a perfect fit and immediately called to tell us we needed to get to the house as soon as possible to take a look and if we were serious, submit an offer. That evening we signed documents to get our initial offer in. With one counter offer, by Monday morning, he called to tell us the house was ours! Much to our surprise, after hearing countless "No's" we were so excited to finally hear the words yes! We made one offer with Travis and he got us our first home! It was exactly what we had envisioned plus more! The escrow process was made easy with him and he w…

That evening we signed documents to get our initial offer in. With one counter offer, by Monday morning, he called to tell us the house was ours! Much to our surprise, after hearing countless "No's" we were so excited to finally hear the words yes! We made one offer with Travis and he got us our first home! It was exactly what we had envisioned plus more! The escrow process was made easy with him and he was always available to walk us through the process and answer any of the questions we had. We can never thank him enough for getting us our first home. From now on, whether it's buying or selling, Travis is our go-to guy for all our real estate needs!

Seller

Our townhouse was on a frontage road with a direct view of the freeway. We had tried to sell it unsuccessfully for about a year before we stopped trying. Then we met Travis. He found a buyer and we were in escrow within a week. He took care of every problem that came up and managed to overcome my repeated attempts to sabotage the sale by being stubborn about trivial things. He also managed to sell the house despite the fact that our cat attacked the seller's agent. He's that good. Concurrently, he helped us find a house in the neighborhood we had wanted to live in for years but could never find anything. He managed to find a house that had just fallen out of escrow and he and my wife went and spoke to the owner. He was so taken with my wife and Travis that he directed his agent to sell us the house if our offer was reasonable. We've been here over four years now and we owe it all to Trav…

Travis not only sold the outhouse that was located about 50 feet from a major freeway, but he also found us a fantastic place in Oak Park. He kept me calm through the selling and buying process and made sure we got the house that we wanted. I know it's cliche, but we now live in the house of our dreams and I can honestly say there's no way it would have happened without Travis's hard work, patience, and persistence.

Travis was instrumental in the purchase of our first home. We had already been looking at houses for over a year, saw literally hundreds of properties, and wrote over 60 offers when we were introduced to Travis in April of 2013. His knowledge, skill, and savvy helped us secure the purchase on the first offer we wrote and it was by far the best house we had looked at.

We were in a real bind. Travis helped us navigate the difficult short-sale process, breaking through the red tape to get the sale done on our timeline. I have referred him to family and friends and will continue to do so. He treated us like we were his best friends. We will always be grateful for his help and can't wait to use him again for purchase.
