Here's What My Clients Have To Say...

We put our home on the market in July and were able to complete the sale by mid-September. During this time, Ruth was very knowledgeable with all steps that we needed to take and clearly discussed the plan with us. She was always available for the countless questions we had and was patient and thorough in answering all of them. Possibly just as important, it was great working with Ruth because of her positive personality. Ruth made the process as painless as possible. We highly recommend her to anyone who needs to sell their home.

Relocating to a new location is a difficult task even under ideal conditions. Ruth Pino made our move to Gloucester much easier. Ruth is extremely knowledgeable on the area, the market, the homes we were looking at, and even the work we would need to do to these homes to fit our specific requirements. Ruth was able to coordinate everything for us, even though we were out of state, and make the purchase of our home much simpler than we thought it would be. Thank you, Ruth!

In March of 2012, we listed our home for sale with Ruth Pino. After settling into retirement, we had decided that it was time to make a change in our living accommodations and Ruth was there, every step of the way, to help us expedite the sale of our home and find a new place to meet our requirements.

Ruth is a dedicated professional. Her extensive experience and knowledge of the local real estate market were invaluable. Throughout the entire selling process - listing, open house and showings, negotiations with the buyers, agreements and closing - she demonstrated such energy and enthusiasm, attention to detail and personal consideration, we were completely satisfied with her services.

As buyers’ agent, she was most accommodating and patient, always taking into account our wishes and efficiently handling all the hurdles along the way. It is with a great sense of relief to find ourselves happily settled in our new home. Moving is never an easy process, but we are forever grateful that we had Ruth on our side. Thank you, Ruth!

My wife and I used Ruth Pino's services during the spring of 2012 to sell our house in East Gloucester, as we had recently retired and looking to "downsize". Our house was an unusual one, in that it was an older multiple family that we had used as a single family for twenty five years. Although we had extensively updated and modified our home over the years and it was located in a charming neighborhood, Ruth still had the challenge of finding the right buyer at the right price.

Ruth came to us highly recommended by friends, and we were delighted to find her extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of the local real estate market and the trade itself. Ruth has a wonderful personality and was extremely attentive to our emotions in selling the home that we had lived in so long. In addition, she was an incredible asset in preparing and helping us through the pre-sale home inspection. Ruth was always available either by telephone, email or with a personal visit, to answer our questions and give us important information during every step of our selling process, which, only took a few months and was sold at the right price.

We highly recommend Ruth to be an honest, ethical, knowledgeable and "wicked smart" Realtor who will serve any homeowner well.

Ruth was an excellent guide and companion for the road to my buying a house in Rockport. She is personable, knows the area well from long experience living and working on Cape Ann, knows the real estate business and many tradespeople, works creatively around obstacles, and is generally unflappable. I was happy I chose her.

Our experience working with Ruth was the BEST, Ruth spent 18 months working with us to find us the right house, we had quite a few must haves and Ruth never gave up. Just when we were ready to stop looking Ruth called and said she found the perfect house and she did, we have the house of our dreams and we owe it all to Ruth, I would recommend her and have to anyone who is looking... she is the BEST.

Michelle & Donna

Ruth Pino was my realtor when I bought my house in Gloucester last year. I can't say enough good things about her. She is most knowledgeable and and highly professional. Her advice was always spot on and most welcome. It was a great experience working with her and I most enthusiastically recommend her.

Gail O'Docherty

Having sold a multi-family home a year ago, with guidance and much needed advice from Ruth Pino, we can truly recommend Ruth to manage your real estate transactions. She was not only warm and personable but also always returned calls almost immediately. She is a true professional in her field, as well as generous with her time and talents in giving back to the community.

Harry & Marcia Aptt

I admire your spirit and proactive approach. As always, if I know of anyone who is interested in real estate, I will refer them to you.

Best wishes!

In our 57 years of marriage, Joy and I have bought nine houses and sold eight of them — 17 different real estate transactions in all. Ruth Pino handled the last two purchases and the last sale, all in Gloucester.

In those 57 years we have never worked with anyone as conscientious, patient, and good humored as Ruth, nor with anyone as sensitive to the concerns and needs of both buyers and sellers. She must have spent six months helping us find our perfect Lanesville house, and never once did we sense that she was impatient or frustrated by our reluctance to settle beforehand for something that wasn’t just right for us. And when it came time to sell that house a dozen years later, Ruth was at our side through months of often complex negotiations with the eventual buyer.

When our perfect last house, across the street from our daughter’s family in East Gloucester, came back on the market unexpectedly after another would-be buyer decided to back out of the deal, Ruth tracked us down on a Saturday afternoon, on an island four miles off the Virginia mainland, to let us know we could bid on it after all (finding a fax machine there so we could put in our offer was the biggest hurdle we faced). We bought the house, and of course Ruth went the extra mile once more, seeing to it that the sale went through smoothly, and helping us find the perfect contractor for a difficult earth-moving job.

We are convinced that a successful real estate transaction is one in which all parties come to settlement convinced that they have achieved a happy outcome. Ruth shares that sentiment, and moves heaven and earth to see that it happens. She’s the best.

REMAX is lucky to get someone of your experience, integrity and drive. I always think of you first if the conversation turns to real estate, and will continue to refer people to you.

You are one of the most caring, talented and kind people I have ever had the opportunity to get to know. On the business side, I imagine you are also smart, clever and will be able to spring back into action without a problem. I am a firm believer that good things happen to good people and you will shortly be a walking example of that theory.
