In January this very special Artesia property, close by a daughter and grandchildren, came on the market unexpectedly. I contacted Ruben right away, he negotiated the purchase of the property with very favorable terms (despite the 4 competing offers received), arranged for a creative swing loan through his contacts to allow the purchase, and the home was mine.
That left me with the home in Anaheim Hills to sell once the Artesia property closed.
From the beginning of this venture, Ruben worked diligently with me to prepare my Anaheim Hills home for marketing. He saw financial potential in my home that not even I as a seller saw. His recommendations not only enriched my home’s presentation, but also put it in a price range I had not imagined possible. Once it went on the market, it sold well within my time lines.
Ruben has knowledge and abilities far beyond most real estate agents. He is well-experienced and well-educated. Over the years I have bought and sold 8 homes, but never before have I had a real estate agent like Ruben Rodarte. He takes a personal interest in his clients and emphasizes in his representing them what is to their best advantage. His negotiation skills leave all involved with good feelings while being firm about his clients’ financial interests. He keeps himself available at all times for personal contact whether by phone or email and responds quickly to clients’ needs and concerns. There were a few instances where he took the time to come to my home long past business hours to resolve items in an expedient manner.
Throughout both buy and sell transactions, I put my complete trust in Ruben. He walked me through the reams of paperwork, explained the myriad of forms to sign, always kept me advised of his negotiations on my behalf, but also listened to and discussed my considerations. In the final analysis, both as a buyer and seller, Ruben did far more for me than any other real estate agent in my experience has ever done, including some other top agents in the real estate field. He is truly a full-service agent, and was well worth my investment. He is a remarkable individual trustworthy, reliable, knowledgeable, resourceful and imaginative-who puts his energies and interests into a career working on behalf of his clients. He has a lovely, supportive family as well, and I have made my transition from Anaheim Hills to Artesia feeling as though I were working with a friend, not just a real estate agent.
If you choose to work with Ruben as a buyer or seller, I am sure you will end up feeling the same as I feel-1 was fortunate to have known of and worked with Ruben. As you can see I would recommend him without reservation and hesitation to anyone. It’s the least I can do for what he has done for me and my family.
