Elaine Ruddock - Testimonials

Tell Us Your Story

We unexpectedly found ourselves looking to buy a house on a short timeline and a tight budget, which made us a little anxious from the beginning.

Elaine was amazing at helping us find properties that fit what we were looking for and helping to reassure us along the way. She was quick to respond to our endless questions and set up viewings around our schedule as soon as we asked. We were able to find a house in a short amount of time that checked off almost everything we were looking for and it was below our max budget. Elaine was fantastic to work with and was able to turn a stressful situation into an exciting time for our family. We will definitely recommend her to friends and won't hesitate to use her as our realtor again in the future.

But Elaine patiently re-assured me and gave me all the information I needed, so when I found the right house for me, I was able to purchase it with confidence. Thank-you Elaine for all your help!

As a single mom, selling my home was quite an overwhelming task, to say the least.

Elaine has a warmth that encompasses you and makes you feel like you are doing business with a friend. She patiently talked me through everything, made gentle suggestions, and even got me through moments of panic! Elaine's excellent negotiating skills resulted in a SOLD sign within 4 days of listing!! Thank you, Elaine, for all your hard work and patience!

Lois Binnendyk

I met Elaine in 2017 when I visited an open house for the first time.

Her patience and professionalism really impressed me. Not only did she introduced the house but also the real estate market in Canada when she knew that I am a new comer. At that time I did not hesitate to invite her as my representative which I believe that is the most correct choice I made. In the next one and half years she did a very good job on helping me find the best house for me. During the period my requirement changed constantly as the market fluctuated significantly. She didn’t push me to make the decision. Conversely she always put herself in my shoes and gave me a lot of pertinent advice. Thanks to Elaine’s help finally I purchased a satisfactory townhouse in Guelph and smoothly completed the transaction. Moreover Elaine offered assistance on services beyond her responsibility, such as helping find home inspector, cleaning agent etc. I would like to say that she is a great sales representative you can trust!

She listened and was always a step ahead to provide tips and useful sound advice as well as info to help is find the perfect home to match our needs. It took me a really long time to get my ducks in a row and she was patient, kind and compassionate. She gave us the time and space we needed and her priority is to make her clients feel safe and supported. She truly is one of a kind and gives 150% every step of the way. We came, we saw and we purchased, and it wouldn’t have happened without her support and professionalism! She is prompt, hard working and always looking out for the best interests of her clients! I will honestly always recommend Elaine and will most definitely work with her again! Thank you, Elaine, for your great professionalism and personal touch of care every step of the way!

Charlena Russell and Samantha Doxtator

We used Elaine about four years ago to sell our existing home and to buy our current home.

Our experience with her was such a positive one that it was a no brainer to use her again to help us find an investment property. Elaine was always friendly and professional, responding quickly to all of our questions. She took us out several times to view different types of properties until we found the one that best fit what we were after. She never ever made us feel pressured to make a decision before we were ready. As a result, we ended up with what we believe is the perfect investment property for us. Our experience working with Elaine this time was every bit as positive as our last. I would not hesitate to use her again, and would highly recommend her to anyone.

David and Jennifer Zwaniga

As first time home buyers, we have been so thankful to have Elaine guiding us through this experience of buying our first home.

We started looking for a house on our own but once we contacted Elaine to start helping us with everything, she made a world of a difference. Elaine is so knowledgeable about the industry and houses as a whole, pointing out things to look for that we never would have thought of. She is a very upbeat person who is easy to talk to, and understood our needs making it much easier to find the homes we were looking for! Elaine has been essential in our journey to our new home and we couldn’t imagine having completed the process without her!

Drew Dietrich & Sarah Quinn

In September when I found myself urgently in need of finding a new home – in a very specific location – I was not sure what I was going to do.

I connected with Elaine and asked for her help. Elaine was there every step of the way; answering my (many!) questions and reassuring me when I was feeling sad and unsure. Elaine was so on top of things that she found me the home that was perfect for me and my children, right in my desired location and well within my budget. Elaine was supportive, knowledgeable and incredibly helpful. I could not have made it through this experience without her expertise! I highly recommend Elaine to anyone who is looking to buy or sell their home, you won’t be disappointed!

Phoebe Montgomery

We were planning a move to a new town, but didn’t know any Realtors there.

Elaine was referred to us, and we couldn’t have been happier that she represented us in the purchase of our new home. Throughout the process, Elaine made herself available when we needed her, provided lots on information about the city we were moving to, and even drove out of town to pick us up for appointments. Although moving to a new town was a bit overwhelming, Elaine’s efforts helped to make it a smooth transition. We would gladly refer her to anyone looking for a Realtor in the Region of Waterloo.

Holger and Wendy Lohse

Elaine was a fantastic help throughout the entire process.

She was always willing to help, and her knowledge of the market and ability to provide honest feedback on suggested bids was invaluable.

Brenton Morse

My wife and I were recently looking for our first Investment Property.

Elaine made it very easy and gave us a lot of great options. She began with showing us great properties in great rental areas. Also, she gave us excellent suggestions and recommendations on what to look for in an investment property. When we finally made a decision on a property, things went really smoothly. We had lots of interest in the property and it was rented in no time after the first showing! Elaine is always available no matter what time of the day you try to reach her. Great Realtor and Awesome Experience to work with her. Highly Recommended and will definitely work with.

Brian Erb

Elaine really goes above and beyond in selling your home.

She went the extra mile with courtesy staging and provided her own personal touches that made all the difference, selling our home in just 3 days! Amazing!! Elaine's positive, upbeat professionalism also made buying a house a complete pleasure; she was my 'Ace' in a bidding war! I have no doubt I would not have gotten the house I wanted without her. Thanks Elaine!

Debbie Stuart

Elaine helped me a lot when I was trying to buy my first house.

As a student on my own and new to Canada, I really didn’t know much about how to get a suitable house. One of my Dad’s friends recommended Elaine to me. She said Elaine is a very good and professional realtor – and she was right. Elaine listened carefully to what I wanted, and then worked to find the house that was right for me. She used her knowledge and experiences to negotiate with the seller, and helped me to get the suitable price. I feel really thankful that Elaine treated me as her friend and took care of me a lot. She also helped me on lots of things beyond her duty, such as contacting home inspectors, coming to the lawyer’s with me so I understood everything, talking with City officers to get student-dwelling information I needed, and even helped me move! She helped me overcome my language barriers and other aspects. After I moved into my house, she paid me a visit and gave me a lovely housewarming gift. If I got the chance, I would highly recommend Elaine to family and friends.

Yujia (Cristy) Kang

After Elaine found my Mother the perfect house last year, and then secured it for her despite an competitive market and multiple offers, I knew there was no-one else I would trust with the sale of our cottage!

From her expert staging advice, prompt listing, and professionalism all the way through the process, we could not be happier! Our expectations were exceeded and resulted in a win all the way around – happy seller and happy buyer! Sold within days! The best result you could hope for! I would wholeheartedly recommend Elaine for her knowledge of the market and her ability to meld the needs of both buyer and seller to a happy conclusion, as I have personally witnessed twice now! Thanks Elaine!
