Testimonials

“We have worked with Mark twice now and he has been excellent in every aspect of the process (listing, advertising, finding homes that fit our criteria, negotiating, advising, problem-solving, etc.). Mark is trustworthy, pleasant, hardworking, resourceful, accommodating, and knowledgeable. I give his name to anyone that is in the market and other friends/family members that have worked with him have reported an equally positive experience. No wonder he was rated the number one realtor in the Carroll County Times!”
ZACH & JESSICA WILT

“Thank you for the wonderful representation that you provided on our search for a new home and the selling of our lovely Gablehammer home. You certainly can depend on the highest recommendation from us always.”
MARJIE & JEFF KIMBLE

“Mark Ruby has done an outstanding job of selling our house in an unusually difficult market. He brings honesty, integrity, kindness and professionalism to the task. Mark has used his knowledge of the market and advertisement to help achieve our goal of selling our house as quickly as humanly possible”
BILL & BEVERLY BARNES

“Being first time home buyers, James and I knew we wanted to work with someone who showed strength of character and the patience to work with us from square one. Mark constantly went above and beyond just letting us into the houses we were viewing. He took the time to teach us about the whole process, and to check things in the house we never would have thought of on our own. He was always very hands-on in the process and was always a phone call away from answering our every question- including ones we didn’t even know we had. Mark is a truly caring, good person first, and then a knowledgeable and hard-working realtor. We would absolutely recommend him to anyone buying a home- and when we decide it is time for us to sell, he will be the first person we call.”
BRITTANY & JAMES HARRISON

“As first time homebuyers, we were very nervous about the whole process. We wanted an honest realtor that was more concerned about our needs than making a buck; that’s exactly what we got with Mark. Mark was very patient and organized as we looked at houses all over Carroll County before we found the right one. Even though we knew Mark had other clients, he made us feel like we were his only one. Mark helped us every step of the way!”
BEN & KARA BURKE

“Mark Ruby handled the SHORT SALE of our home in Maryland after we moved to Texas for employment. Being out of state, we had to rely on Mark for everything. He is possibly the most trustworthy businessman we have ever had the pleasure to deal with. He has a great deal of heart, along with savvy business acumen. We hold him in the highest regard.”
KELLY & MICHAEL FULLER

“Mark is honest, upfront, and a pleasure to work with. His strategies were effective in the sale of our home and when we bought a new one as our buyer’s agent. If we ever go to sell again we will definitely use Mark.”
LARRY ALVAREZ

“Mark Ruby is a great Real Estate Agent. He stuck with us throughout the whole sale of our home. He was informative and very helpful. He sold our house quickly. What can usually be a stressful process, went rather smoothly.”
AMANDA HUNT FRANKLIN

“Mark helped my family sell our house in record time. He was diligent and professional in all manners of the experience and utilized effective open houses to expand the appeal to our house to prospective buyers in Columbia. I would recommend Mr. Ruby for either side of the transaction experience as he was also an effective buyer’s agent, and met all of our needs in purchasing a new home.”
BRENT & ANDREA ORMISTON

“Mark Ruby was excellent to work with. He was our real estate agent for selling and purchasing. He was very knowledgeable. I really appreciated that he took the time to get to know us and our needs/desires in a new home and in our current home. He was also very patient with us in our fears of and newness to the process of selling and buying. During a time of great downturns in the housing market, he created a bidding war on our house, and we ended up selling our home for its asking price. He then negotiated a great deal for us on our current home. We were very satisfied customers. I highly recommend Mark to others!”
