Ruthan was very knowledgeable and professional. She patiently answered all of our many questions. She did not rush us into a decision but worked with us.

Ruthan is simply the best!

She has served us over the last twenty when we bought and sold our first house at Lake of the Woods and then again in August.

She has more experience and history with Lake of the Woods then anyone else.

She genuinely cares about her clients and over the years we have grown to consider her a close friend through our purchases.

She makes the process fun and she has always made us feel at ease during the searches. Never any sales pressure. She was very patient with us as it took a year or so to make our purchase.

I have recommended her to close friends who are considering LOWs.

Thank you Ruthan!!!

We love you!

Ruthan got me through a very emotional and difficult time and process. She worked extremely hard to prevent a foreclosure on my Mom's property. She's the greatest!

We felt confident from the very beginning with Ruthan and Bill Schmarge. Both were friendly and professional. Both gave advice in a kind way as to not hurt our feelings. We took the valuable advice and applied it to the house. I think it was one of the reasons why the house sold so fast.

We could not have asked for a better transaction. It was beautifully advertised with the photographer's work. Exceptional job!! Also, Ruthan's suggestion of putting out the "Coming Soon" sign by the road stirred up a ton of interest. The first day it was on

the market there were lots of people wanting to see the house. That's what you want as a seller.

Hands down we are so happy we chose Century 21 Redwood Realty - Locust Grove. We were given the names of other realtors in the area by friends, but decided to go with our gut. It was a decision we are glad we made.

I read so many positive reviews of Ruthan from my neighbors that emphasized how much she truly cares about her clients. Ruthan's background and experience in real estate stand out. She is entirely accessible and someone I trust explicitly. She is truly a remarkable person and agent.

Ruthan took the time to go over all aspects of the sale with me. She connected with all prospective buyers following a showing and we discussed whether any changes needed to be made to the sales campaign. As a result, we had many positive showings and eventually found the right buyer.

My overall experience was terrific due to Ruthan's dedication to making the best sale possible. My property had some features that made the sale take a little longer, but I absolutely feel that she was instrumental in finding the buyer who would love the home the way I did. Her encouragement throughout the process is a testament to her commitment and her truly caring nature.

Our history with Ruthan O'Toole goes back 19 years when she helped us select a lot on which to build our house. Additionally, she recommended a builder to build our custom home and helped us throughout the process. She certainly went the extra mile with us. When it came time to sell that house, there was no doubt that Ruthan would be our realtor.

Both times, Ruthan and her staff provided outstanding service from the first step to the last. Would also like to mention the excellent choice of the videographer who made the photos and videos of our home look even better than the actual house. A fantastic first impression for home buyers.

Although we put our house up for sale in January (typically a slow sales period), we had quite a bit of traffic from prospective buyers almost right away, and about a month later we had a contract.

Christine Purtell is another Century 21 Redwood realtor who very ably helped us and Ruthan seal the deal to sell our home. Although a relative newcomer to the real estate industry (Christine previously had a lengthy business career), she proved to be knowledgeable and energetic and quite personable.

Ruthan knew my family and her knowledge of the area and housing market was a perfect fit for us. As busy as she is, she always gave us her time and never seemed to be in a rush. We called her often during the closing process and her knowledge was so valuable to us. We felt very blessed to have her as our broker.

The house Ruthan O'Toole sold for our family had been previously listed with several other realtors who were unable to close a deal. She said she would have a deal for us within three months, and she did. With a month to spare. She was always right on top of every aspect of the sale, kept us on track, provided encouragement, and gave us excellent advice. Ruthan is a true professional. Our family could not be happier. I would recommend her without hesitation.

We have been customers of Ruthanne O'Toole at Lake of the Woods, twice in the last 10 years.

The first was to buy our present home at Lake of the Woods and the second -most recently,-the sale of Barbara's Mother's home, also at the Lake. In both cases, she did an excellent job and we would highly recommend Ruthanne to anyone who wants a seasoned,confident, knowledgeable,caring real estate agent.

Both of us are sincerely appreciative of all the efforts Ruthanne took to sell our home. After the listing we had a ratified contract in a little over two weeks! Also everything up to and including the closing went very smoothly ,as she handles all the details.

Moving forward with buying a home was a little intimidating. I had not done this on my own before. Having Ruthan Otoole as my agent made all the difference in the process for me. Her shared knowledge throughout the buying process was essential to me pressing forward, despite setbacks. She continually encouraged me and was readily available to clarify and answer all my questions which helped me to become a more knowledgeable, confident buyer and end up with the home that was right for me and my family.

Ruthan was very gracious and patient as well helpful and knowledgeable in the house search. Bill Schmarge was extremely helpful with the setting up of the house inspection, walk through and closing.

We told Ruthan what we were looking for in a house. She came up with several options for us. We bought one of the houses she chose and are very happy with our purchase.

We would recommend Ruthan O'Toole to anyone looking for a home in Lake of the Woods as she is very knowledgeable of the area and of real estate in general.

Thanks Ruthan.

Knew that Ruthan O'Toole had an excellent reputation in the area. She worked hard to sell the property and was encouraging at all times (even though I got very discouraged.) I would definitely refer Ruthan to anyone needing to sell!

Professional in every way! Went above and beyond several times to help! Felt that some of my nondescript questions were unnecessary but Ruthan answered all with aplomb!

Ruthan led me through an experience that I thought would be daunting at best. She explained each and every aspect of the process of buying a home. We even looked into building as well. In the end, she couldn't have been more helpful and compassionate to this first time home buyer!

I called Ruthan when I found listings on Realtor.com located in LOW that were of interest to us. I went through the entire Century 21 Redwood Realty website and read all the biographies and information on each agent before I selected Ruthan to represent us. I was impressed with her bio and that she appeared to be an expert on the Fredericksburg/Lake of the Woods area. Then when we discovered she lived in LOW herself, that made the difference. Ruthan patiently showed us approximately 30 homes over the course of 9 months. We wrote an offer on one home, subject to the sale of our home, and it fell through because of a structural problem we had with our basement. We felt so bad for ourselves and the seller, but Ruthan kept encouraging us throughout the ordeal and as a result we never lost hope. She made such a great impression on the seller of the home we put the offer on, that even after our deal fell through, she was able to list and sell the house for the owners. Very impressive! We spent several months getting our home repaired so we could sell it again and while we did so, Ruthan stayed in touch regularly and kept a positive attitude; always reassuring us we would find the home we wanted. She was always so kind and positive. Ruthan listened carefully to our needs and ended up finding us the home of our dreams. She is one of the most caring and professional agents we have ever worked with. Her manner is so calm and pleasant and her knowledge of the local market and real estate as a whole is amazing. Each time we came down to look, I shared a list of 16 - 20 homes I wanted to see and she would work feverishly to ensure we got to see them in a day. It was so much work on her part; but he never lost a beat. She never pushed or presented a "hard sale" attitude to us and we thoroughly appreciated that. Ruthan is the kind of agent that makes people respect the real estate profession and we feel very lucky to have gotten the opportunity to work with her. We would recommend her to anyone in the future and will never use another agent in this area. Century 21 Redwood brokerage is very lucky to have her representing them.

We also had the privilege of working with Carrie Hush on the closing end of our contract. Carrie was just wonderful when she represented us at closing because Ruthan was out of town; we didn't know her well, but felt as if we were left in very capable hands. Carrie kept us informed and was polite. knowledgeable and extremely helpful. Wonderful agent and very effective.

The very best, top notch!
