Katie sold my house in 1 day for more than asking price. She has a strong on-line and social media presence for a lot of instant publicity!
Katie helped us get our house sold in 7 days! Her team is professional and on top of every detail that goes into selling a house. Communication was fast, efficient, and professional. Thank you!
There are no words to say how great Katie Ruthstrom is! She will not stop until she has found you the right home!!! She will give you all the resources, help, and time you need!
Katie Ruthstrom and her team are not the first real estate group I've used but they are the BEST. I was in the position of selling an older home in Illinois while living in Virginia. That meant that Katie was tasked with collecting proposals for services, checking on regulations with city officials, hiring subcontractors and selecting paint colors on occasion. All of these things I would have done if I were on site but I wasn't. Katie pitched in and took care of it all.
She was always available to give me recommendations when asked but never pushed me into any course of action. Katie demonstrated skill and knowledge in working with multiple realtors in securing the best price for our property. When an issue arose with the lawyer regarding closing she called his office immediately and straightened it out.
I always felt well informed as to the status of what was happening regarding marketing the property. I received weekly updates via computer searches, detailed checklists from visitors who attended open houses and multiple listings on many computer websites.
Katie's staff was well informed and prompt in regards to any inquiries that I had during the course of the sale. I even received a list of utilities and offices with phone numbers to contact to close accounts on the day of the sale. Even that was so helpful since I live so far away and had not even thought to take care of that.
In closing, I should add that even though the property Katie sold for me was a modest one in terms of cost, her service was exceptional. Thank you, Katie, for everything!!!!
Katie helped me buy my first house. She helped me through all the 8nknowns and the jitters, and had such knowledge and grace, and such a personal touch, I feel like I have a real friend in the real estate business now! I could not recommend her highly enough!
Katie Ruthstrom Real Estate Team was sensational!! The entire process was fun and exciting. I was very pleased with the staff and their experience with house searching. The staff was extremely friendly and enjoying. I have already referred her Team to several people (including my own family), and reassured them they would find the right house. A great experience!!
Our home sold in 6 days! They worked hard to get us into our new home the same day we closed on our sold place. We were extremely happy to have worked with Katie and her team. They were knowledgeable and extremely on the ball with correspondence. Listen to what they have to say. They recommended that we do a followup inspection on work done to the house we were buying and I am glad they had the experience to do so. Issues were found with the repairs and they were all over it! I will definitely be looking them up when we are ready to do this all over again.
Katie is the best. She goes above and beyond, listens, shares her expertise, and works HARD. I always knew the situation and status of selling my house. We sold our house in 2015 and I just opened a letter from Katie with my 2015 HUD sheet that I will need for taxes. I got one when we closed but I would've been searching everywhere. This is so helpful. This sums up Katie--she thinks of the little things that make a huge difference.
The Katie Ruthstrom team helped me through my first home purchase! I bought a farm outside of Champaign. Katie Ruthstrom and her team were very responsive, professional, and knowledgeable. I would recommend them without hesitation.
Katie only needed to show us one house because she knew it was the one for us. We've been there for almost a year now and couldn't be happier!!
The Team delivered outstanding service and results in selling our house. In response to a serious miscommunication with shared responsibility, Katie handled it in a very professional and responsible manner. Her flexibility and customer service attitude is great and we sincerely appreciate her and the team's efforts. Well done, Katie!
Katie and her team were great to work with. Katie is very detailed and made sure we didn't miss anything as we went through the process. We didn't except to buy a home so quickly, but the right home came on the market and she helped us snatch it up! Great customer service and communication are important to us and she was excellent. Thank you!
Katie is an amazing realtor who surpassed my expectations! She really went above and beyond helping me find a home. She even went door to door knocking in my desired neighborhood. Because of her help, I was able to get in the front door of my future home before the "for sale" sign was even put in the yard! Would highly recommend her.
My wife and I recently purchased a home using Katie Ruthstrom and her team. Katie does an excellent job of listening to wants and needs, likes and dislikes, and then uses this information to find exactly what you're looking for. She was extremely patient with us, explaining the ins and outs of the business, and taking us to probably 15 properties before we found what we wanted.
We tried selling our home for 8 months on our own. Katie and her team even gave us some pointers while we were on our own. The unexpected help was greatly appreciated so when it came down to selling our home fast we signed up with Katie. 3 weeks later we accepted an offer. This girl knows the real estate business! So sweet and overflowing with awesome ideas. Thanks Katie Ruthstrom Team.
Best real estate team I've ever worked with. Professional and down to earth at the same time. Katie and Michelle seamlessly worked as a team and were on top of things every stage of the process. There were some unexpected minor complications (my fault) at the closing of the condo I was selling and Katie was supportive and efficient in helping to resolve the complications. Calm and steady. Michelle was extremely well organized and made sure we had the information we needed. Perhaps most importantly, I trusted them to have our interests at heart as we went through the sometimes complicated and anxiety producing process of selling and buying our homes. I give the Katie Ruthstrom Real Estate Team the highest rating because they earned it!!
I have had the opportunity to work with Katie several times over the years. She never ceases to amaze me at how thorough she is with new home owners. Recently, I worked with a client Katie referred me who didn’t have to carry home owners insurance to close their loan and he didn’t really understand why he would at first, I explained placing insurance on his property protected his investment as well as his other assets and wages from law suit. He still was a bit unsure so he took it back to Katie and had her review his quote. Doing this didn’t benefit Katie in any way, in fact it took time and effort for Katie to get the client and I together. However, it benefited her client. This is the service you can depend on from Katie, it isn’t about a transaction, it’s about the clients continued happiness, both at the time of sale and years down the road.
Katie and her team were absolutely the best to work with. I was new to Illinois and literally knew no one nor even so much as a street name. Katie not only found me the perfect home she also went out of her way to help with Vets, Dentists, etc. I send folks to her as much as I possibly can!
We listed our Champaign home with the Katie Ruthstrom team and it sold in 5 days!!! Katie and Michelle were patient to answer each and every one of our questions. They worked to get the best sale price for our home and walked us through every step of the negotiations. They were both so kind through the whole process and I can not thank them enough for the work they did. I highly recommend the Katie Ruthstrom team!!!
The Katie Ruthstrom team did a fantastic job selling our home! We listed after leaving the state. Our home sold quickly but for the short time we had it, they facilitated keeping it in great shape giving us some peace of mind during an otherwise stressful transition.
Katie and her team are simply Great! Knowledgeable, Easy to work with, and were dedicated to finding us the right home. I've moved 3 times in the last 4 years and after working with Katie and team I highly recommend them to anyone!
Couldn't have asked for a better experience! Our house sold quickly, and then Katie immediately found our new house the next day. My family and I highly recommend Katie and her entire team.
We recently purchased a house in Champaign using the Katie Ruthstrom Real Estate Team. They we helpful throughout the entire process and really helped us find exactly what we wanted. Would recommend to anyone!!
Katie and her team were patient with my decision making process, and they helped me with far more than just buying the house.
Katie Ruthstrom and her team are a pleasure to work with. Great real estate agent. If you want the best, you will call The Katie Ruthstrom Real Estate Team!
Katie is awesome and a great agent! If you're looking for an agent look no further, she is who we refer our clients to when they're looking in Champaign!
We absolutely loved working with Katie and her team!! They ensured our transition to Champaign was seamless and made a potentially stressful process much more manageable!
