"Darin’s use of technology is phenomenal..."
We hired Darin Ruff to sell our house in Cochrane in 2016. One of the first things that impressed us about Darin was his website: chock full of all kinds of information available to anyone. As well, the number of pictures posted with each of his listings far outdid other realtors and it was very easy to picture yourself in each room of a potential home. Darin’s use of technology is phenomenal: for example, even though we were out of the province while the house was on the market, we were still able to review and sign documents electronically – no printing or faxing necessary. We received weekly emails showing us how many people had viewed the house (online) in the previous week, month, since being listed etc. He also went above and beyond helping us when someone was needed on site. A huge plus for us!
Darin was professional at all times and a pleasure to deal with. He listened to our concerns and made valuable suggestions. We would not hesitate to recommend Darin to anyone, and would certainly hire him again if the need arose.

"We would definitely recommend Darin to anyone buying or selling."
Darin understood our needs as first time buyers and guided us expertly through the process of buying our first house. We really appreciated his relaxed manner and professionalism. When we contacted him with a question or a viewing request, he was super fast in replying and in showing us round the properties. Darin is friendly, reliable and knowledgeable about all aspects of real estate. We would definitely recommend him to anyone buying or selling.

"We highly recommend the expertise of Darin Ruff..."
If your thinking of selling your home, or buying a new one, we highly recommend the expertise of Darin Ruff as your real estate agent.
We had Darin as our agent in the sale of our home, and he actually helped us successfully sell our home while we were on vacation in Hawaii. It was great, Darin did the entire transaction electronically and we were able to enjoy our holiday, and come home to a sold sign on our lawn.
Darin also helped us find a new home without much stress and anxiety throughout the entire transaction.
Darin has a through understanding of old fashioned Customer Service. He is a very strong communicator, and he genuinely cares about his clients interests.
Darin always kept us informed and promptly returned our calls and intellectually answered all our questions and concerns.
Darin has the ability to remain calm, cool, and collective, and I must add, in general he is a super nice person and an absolute Gentleman, and was an absolute pleasure to deal with. I would not hesitate to use his services again, nor recommend him to anyone that is in need of a experienced real estate agent.

"Darin Ruff is, in our humble opinion, as he purports to be: The Top Dog in Real Estate. Not only is Mr. Ruff extremely personable and honest, but he's a truly wonderful person. Darin introduced us to our new town, oriented us well to all of the neighborhoods, and really gave us a fabulous "snapshot" of our new home base. He walked us through a number of properties, always keeping our personal preferences and best interests at the forefront. Not only did he find our wonderful new home, but he often went above and beyond the call of duty throughout the entire process of selling our old home and buying our new one. We have every intention of highly recommending Darin to all of our friends and family for all of their Real Estate needs. Thank you so much, Darin!"
p.s. You rock. Love to share some tasty white wine soon!
"Thanks so much for making our house sale go so smoothly..."
Thanks so much for making our house sale go so smoothly. We appreciate how you went the extra mile to present our home so positively with a wonderful presentation on your web, local papers and an excellent mls listing. We are so pleased that our home sold within a week, at over 99% of our asking price. We appreciate your friendly and knowlegable approach to home sales and your honesty and integrity. We hope to be able to refer other clients your way, and would be pleased to share with potential clients of yours the very positive experience we had with you as our realtor.
