“They are up on the latest technology and ways to sell. The Video Tour of my home was off the charts “FANTASTIC”. I knew they were the ones that would make the sale happen – even though I interviewed realtors with 20 yrs experience and good track records too. Go with them you won’t be disappointed!”

“Chris and Ruth are the BEST! They are up on the latest technology and ways to sell. The Video Tour of my home was off the charts “FANTASTIC” and gave the personal touch and many came to open house due to them and came later too. We had some challenges to get past and Chris/Ruth was on it and results were great! They taught me a few things too. Their respectfulness, kindness, compassion and determination along with the ability to be tough in negotiations too…makes them such a win win team!! I feel very blessed I had them too and as we got to know each other I will always support them and recommend them highly! They are truly the BEST! My original realtor fell through and I was interviewing for another and his timing was perfect and asked if he may have an interview. After receiving the most professional package and preparations needed for sale I knew they were the ones that would make the sale happen – even though I interviewed realtors with 20 yrs experience and good track records too. Go with them you won’t be disappointed! They are good people with good hearts and do the right things..they are truly a win win team! Thank you!”

“They sold our house within a few days, for a price higher than our asking price (in fact, I believe the selling price set a record for our neighborhood)!”

We made an excellent choice going with Ruth/Chris Real Estate. They sold our house within a few days, for a price higher than our asking price (in fact, I believe the selling price set a record for our neighborhood)! Throughout the process Ruth/Chris were very honest, dependable, informative, knowledgeable/competent and went well above and beyond our expectations. On top of that, they are very friendly and fun to work with. They made a potential stressful experience a truly enjoyable one. I will certainly recommend them to anyone that is looking for a great realtor!

“After a year on the market with another agent, Ruth/Chris Real Estate delivered in 18 days!!”

I had my beautiful home in Cinco Ranch painfully listed for over a year with an agent I previously used. I can not describe how tiring the process became of having to clean my house with little or no notice, remove my animals and displace my daughters since we often had to suddenly leave our home.
Making the decision to switch agents wasn’t very easy for my wife since she felt we were already invested timewise. She also thought it was the market or my home, but with 23 years of sales management and with the conversations I had with my agent I knew it was the person not my home or location. None the less, 1 year after being with the same agent, I terminated that relationship and met Ruth and Chris Glapa!
Upon meeting Ruth and Chris I was immediately impressed. They just didn’t simply take a few pictures and slap my home on MLS/HAR with the other 150 homes represented like my prior agent and simply hope for a result. They went into depth with their philosophy which I 100% agreed with, dissected my home, community and gave me honest feedback that led to us developing an amazing plan of how they will sell my home. Ultimately they made it look easy!
My prior agent didn’t believe in simple things and especially in going above and beyond like the Glapa’s. My prior agent literally took pictures, posted them and waited for an offer that never came. There was no follow up or hustle like the Glapa’s. He “didn’t believe in gimmicks” like Open Houses, which come to find out really meant he didn’t believe in work and hustle…
The Glapa’s deployed the upmost of professionalism, tools, attention to detail, frequent communication and feedback, hustle factor, follow up and went above and beyond in every single way. They brought in the most state of the art tools for the best pictures which had brilliant comments on the listing, videos and actually pushed the home. In fact including the open house they did upon listing I had more showings in 17 days than the past 4 months with my prior agent! In fact when somebody would inquire about my home and they didn’t have an agent or their agent was unavailable Ruth and/or Chris wouldn’t put it off, they would personally show my home so the prospect wouldn’t have to wait and possibly lose interest!
Well, it happened, despite the despair and sense of hopelessness they accomplished the unthinkable… In a depressed market with tons of competition of homes, entering the slow season their efforts and work yielded a full asking offer and after only 17 days on the Market with Ruth and Chris we were done. Their efforts didn’t end with the offer, they had brilliant resources to assist with inspection, were by my side through the closing process with the lenders and were with us at the closing of our new home!
My only regret is that my wife didn’t find Ruth and Chris sooner! Actions always speak louder than words and the Glapa’s went above and beyond in every conceivable way, for that we are thankful!
If your home is in a similar situation as mine was don’t procrastinate, time is money and call Ruth and Chris. Furthermore I gave Ruth and Chris permission to have any interested parties contact me directly if you need to hear my good story from me personally!

“Ruth/Chris Real Estate Delivered The Results We Were Looking For!”

“Ruth and Chris are two very hard working individuals with a great team behind them. The first day of our open home they were able to generate more than 45 interested buyers through our home, and the calls for showings just kept coming in the week to follow. We had an offer the 2nd week and we recently closed on the sale of our home! If you are in the market to sell your home, do yourself a favor and call Ruth/Chris Real Estate. By far some of the nicest, courteous, and professional people you will deal with in this industry.”

“Ruth/Chris Real Estate Gave Our Katy Home The Second Chance It Deserved!”

“Ruth and Chris did an excellent job of selling our home in Katy – we couldn’t have picked a better team. We had listed our home with another realtor and there was no movement after several months on the market. We approached Ruth/Chris Real Estate and Chris promised us an offer within a month and he delivered!

Ruth and Chris went above and beyond and took marketing to a whole new level with the video tour they prepared of our home! They were always very prompt in answering calls and messages and could be reached at all times. Their recommendations every step of the way in the process of selling our home were spot-on and we closed within a month of the offer.

We had a wonderful experience selling our home with Ruth and Chris. Rest assured – Ruth and Chris will do whatever it takes to get the job done! Thank you so much for all of your hard work – Ruth/Chris!”  

Zillow.com Review by Hari & Nupur K – Houston Homeowners

“They were dead-on and not going with them costed us money in the long run; plus lots of headaches. Go with the pros and don’t drink the cool-aid.”

“We chose to take the realtors with the high expectations as we were dealing with a Company buy-out deal and thought the high expectations would manifest themselves in a higher buy-out offer, despite what the market did. When we met with “Ruth/Chris” we knew, we just knew that they were on top of the business even though we did not like their numbers. Both my wife and I knew they were the professionals and had the right numbers, but they were 35K or so less than the run of the mill realtors, so we, despite our better business since took the high numbers. It was a mistake. Long story short we survived, but we would have been much better off taking the professional route they recommended. They had a very serious, business-minded approach to the analysis of our property. They were dead-on and not going with them costed us money in the long run; plus lots of headaches. I recommend these folks to you if you are in their area. Go with the pros and don’t drink the cool-aid. I highly recommend this team and when I come back to the Houston area (oil patch, so inevitable) I will without a doubt bring these two on board and I will recommend them to my friends coming and going. Do it right or not at all. These folks are the pros and in my experience most others pale in comparison.”

Chris and Ruth are a great team to work with. They are always available and willing to do whatever needed. They were very patient with us when the market changed and we had a certain price we needed to stay around. They are always on your side and will guide you in a encouraging and supportive way.

Ruth & Chris helped us find a rental last year. They have helped us buy our first home in the U.S. Without them we would have been totally lost! They are very professional, very friendly and 100% on the ball. They have explained everything along the way, helped me when I’ve been totally clueless and have always been at the end of the phone if I’ve needed anything. Thanks guys so glad to have you be part of our house process!
