Looking at being a first time homeowner, I was nervous about the whole process of looking at and putting an offer in on a home. I started working with a different realtor in July 2015 and my experience was less than average. I eventually severed ties with my very complacent realtor and decided that maybe it wasn't meant to be. Then I saw a listing on a home that looked great on HAR. I contacted the online listing and Leslie Ruiz of James Krueger Realtors contacted me. She asked my needs and wants of a home. She immediately made me feel at ease with the entire process. Truly, the 3rd home we looked at, we made an offer. She followed up and kept me informed and within less than 4 hours, she called to say my offer was accepted.
Even after that, working with the mortgage broker, she stayed in the loop and on top of things. Leslie was very thorough and made herself available whenever I called. After this experience, I could not think of using another agent for either listing my home or finding me a home other than Leslie Ruiz. She was amazing!
