After deciding to sell our home, we interviewed a couple of realtors and decided on the Ruth Pugh group. In hindsight, this was the best choice we could have made. They told us exactly what we needed to do to the house to get it sold. Ruth presented us with local comps to help educate us with the local market and a week later we had accepted an offer and sold our home! Dan Tomasi handled the negotiations and was very thorough and negotiated the deal we were all excited about. Our house was on 4 acres and going into this I thought would be tough to sell. The Ruth Pugh group and Dan Tomasi got it sold in a little over a week! We were very fortunate to have them on our side and would highly recommend them if you are looking to sell/buy your next home!
