From Our Clients
“Debbie was everything we could have hoped for in a realtor. Not only did she really know her stuff, she was incredibly nice and didn't try to 'sell' us on the houses we visited. Rather, her approach was simply to inform and educate us about the houses we saw as we went, and the purchasing process overall. She's very respectful, kind, and patient.”
“We can't say enough about the job Debbie did in helping us sell a home. Her insights in getting the home ready to sell, helping us navigate the challenge of selling our home while living out-of-state, and willingness to check on the progress of the remodel gave us peace of mind and comfort throughout the process. Finally, Debbie did a great job of working with our desires for the sale of the home while being honest about what was realistic. You won't be disappointed with her!”
“Debbie Ruvo is a professional real estate agent who took the time to understand my needs for purchasing my home, and what a beautiful home and neighborhood it is. This is the third time Debbie has helped me ... first to buy my home several years ago, sell that one and now to buy this one. I will enlist her help again though not any time soon. Her negotiating and intervention skills are trustworthy and I am happy that I relied on her. Trust her in real estate dealings. Norm in the Tacoma North End and loving it.”
“We purchased a home through Debbie 5 months ago. Since we were unfamiliar with homes in Washington State, we gave her some of our requirements. She then proceeded to give us a list of some homes that fit our needs. A couple of the homes had not been on the market for at least a year, but she thought they may really be what we were looking for. After a couple of visits and some negotiations we found our new home. Without Debbie it would not have been possible. Since we lived several thousand miles from this area, Debbie provided information on all our request and made sure we had a list of people to assist with the various closing issues. Truly appreciate Debbie and feel she is a great person and a true Real Estate Professional.”
“Debbie was extremely professional in helping us with the sale of our home. We would recommend her to anyone thinking of buying or selling a home! She communicated with us every step of the way. She negotiated a deal that helped us sell our home and get the very best price we could.”
“With 20 real estate transactions over a 40 year span, we can truthfully say that Debbie Ruvo is the best agent we have ever worked with. In brief, she gets the job done! Her vast knowledge and experience is apparent in the way she maneuvers the gauntlet of in and outs necessary in our current stage of selling and buying real estate. She will be there with you every step of the way and as we have witnessed, beyond the call of a typical agent, if necessary. She is on task, professional, and her follow through is the best, without a doubt. We have and will continue to refer Debbie (and loan officer, Traci Skinner) to absolutely anyone we know who is seeking a real estate representative.”

“Debbie was always there to take care of any issues that came up- She was always positive. If we were to buy or sell again we would use her services again. If anybody I know is going to buy or sell I will recommend Debbie.”

“We want to take a moment to bring your attention to the outstanding job that Ms. Debbie Ruvo did in supporting us and representing us in our recent home purchase. We had been looking for some time for a house or condo in the Puyallup South Hill area that would allow us to significantly simplify our life. We first met Debbie as she showed us a condo listing she had. After viewing this property it occurred to us that we still wanted a single family home so we kept on looking. However, fortunate for us, Debbie continued to send us ideas and suggestions as homes appeared on the market. In addition, since Debbie specialized in the senior and retirees sector of the market, she had many other interesting and thought provoking ideas. We had not thought about or even understood how many options and choices there were out there that were available to us. As we continued to look, visit open houses and slowly become overwhelmed with the diversity and enormity of the market, we came close to deciding that the choice that fit us the best was an over 55 community with stand alone homes, ie: no common walls and then we found a community we liked. Fairly small with sixty stand alone homes, we looked at four homes that came on the market in about a three month period and really felt one would be the best for us and we asked Debbie to represent us in the purchase. Now Debbie has been a fountain of knowledge and information before this time, but she was a quiet, calm and collected real estate dynamo in handling this purchase. She has so much experience and knowledge that she steered us flawlessly all the way through a potential minefield of multiple bidders to a successful conclusion of being the buyer on the home we wanted. Debbie was always a step ahead of everyone, she held our hands and led us forward without us even being aware that all real estate transactions are usually filled with much more drama that we experienced. We highly recommend Debbie Ruvo. She will take good care of you, steer you to the right direction and get you the home you want with as little muss and fuss as possible.”

“Rick and I first met Debbie a little over 21 years ago. We then were attempting to sell our home and duplex and purchase another home. Debbie made it happen! So when we decided to downsize to a smaller home, who did we call, Debbie Ruvo of course!! She helped us with so much more than the selling and buying of our current home. We really appreciate all her hard work and would recommend Debbie for any real estate needs.”

“Debbie Ruvo has been an incredible support to me as I have sold various family properties. She has represented our interests very well and the whole process has been very timely and efficient. Debbie has made sure that I have met every deadline, supplied all the necessary documentation, etc. I will absolutely use her services again and recommend her to anyone looking for an agent- either to buy or sell. Thank you, Debbie!”
“Fantastic experience! The professionalism and dedication of Debbie was second to none. She was on top of all of my needs. She was always available to answer my many questions. Will recommend Debbie to all my friends looking at selling a home.”
“I found Ms. Ruvo to be Very helpful in handling our home sale. She is very knowledgeable and caring in her work. She was very kind in considering our needs.”
“Normally we do not complete customer reviews or surveys. This is the first time that we used Debbie Ruvo, who was referred to us by somebody else in the business. We have been in real estate investing for over 50 years and have seen all kinds of unprofessional behaviors, very few true professionals. This selling transaction with Debbie Ruvo was an experience that was off the charts in all areas of the transaction. We felt that she gave excellent “Coaching” and posturing as to what to do and not to do. (This alone saved us thousands of dollars). She assisted with excellent communications and thorough documentation, which yielded excellent results. We had a timely closing. She has excellent follow-up, and pays attention to the details. Also, we accepted and closed on an offer that was full price (Which was higher than we were expecting to see). She is a true and rare professional that we would highly recommend to any serious seller. (And I repeat, we do not normally give endorsements) We are looking forward to using Debbie’s services again in the near future.”

“I am proud to let everyone know that Debbie has helped me so much in buying and selling two homes over the past two decades, and especially at this specific time of uncertainty. Her vast and intricate knowledge of real estate transactions made me feel confident in selecting my home when I was buying, and selecting offers when selling. And she guided me through the do’s and dont’s and I continued to rely on her experience. She made me feel important. I can’t say enough about her attention to detail, keeping in touch throughout the on market process and keeping my vision focussed on the deal. That’s where her experience pays off. Thanks Debbie, and I will remember your standards and integrity in my future real estate dealings. Thanks Debbie.”
