I started looking for a house to buy earlier this year. I found Ruben randomly though the internet and I'm so thankful I did. He really worked hard for me to find the perfect house. He listened to my needs in a home and spent countless hours looking for properties for me. I was also very active in my search and I felt Ruben was always available if I had questions or needed to talk to him. When I found the perfect home he went out of his way getting the inspection done even though the previous owners disconnected the water and power. He made sure we met all of our deadlines for closing and really made the whole process easy. I can now say Ruben is not just my realtor but also my friend.C Kersey
Ruben was so knowledgable to us. We needed to sell our home quickly and stress free and Ruben was amazing. He sold our home in record time and with ease. He also helped guide us through the process. I would recommend Ruben to all of my friends and family.user984507
