“Ruthan O'Toole did a great job with the selling of my property. Land takes longer to sell and she was patient and continued to answer all my questions. Ruthan helped me by making suggestions and telling me why she suggested what she did. I would recommend her for any real estate transaction. ”

Susan Bergner. (Buyer)
“Ruthan is simply the best!
She has served us over the last twenty when we bought and sold our first house at Lake of the Woods and then again in August.
She has more experience and history with Lake of the Woods then anyone else.
She genuinely cares about her clients and over the years we have grown to consider her a close friend through our purchases.
She makes the process fun and she has always made us feel at ease during the searches. Never any sales pressure. She was very patient with us as it took a year or so to make our purchase.
I have recommended her to close friends who are considering LOWs.
Thank you Ruthan!!!
We love you!
Mike Green. Locust Grove (Buyer)

Ruthan is very smart and delivers with excellence.”

“Ruthan got me through a very emotional and difficult time and process. She worked extremely hard to prevent a foreclosure on my Mom's property. She's the greatest!”
Holly Brim, Locust Grove, VA (Seller)
“We felt confident from the very beginning with Ruthan and Bill Schmarge. Both were friendly and professional. Both gave advice in a kind way as to not hurt our feelings. We took the valuable advice and applied it to the house. I think it was one of the reasons why the house sold so fast.
We could not have asked for a better transaction. It was beautifully advertised with the photographer's work. Exceptional job!! Also, Ruthan's suggestion of putting out the "Coming Soon" sign by the road stirred up a ton of interest. The first day it was on
the market there were lots of people wanting to see the house. That's what you want as a seller.
Hands down we are so happy we chose Century 21 Redwood Realty - Locust Grove. We were given the names of other realtors in the area by friends, but decided to go with our gut. It was a decision we are glad we made.”
Kim R. - Locust Grove, VA (Seller)
“Very good sale agent, I will recommend her for any real estate sales ”
Mohamed Diab, California (Seller)
“I read so many positive reviews of Ruthan from my neighbors that emphasized how much she truly cares about her clients. Ruthan's background and experience in real estate stand out. She is entirely accessible and someone I trust explicitly. She is truly a remarkable person and agent.
Ruthan took the time to go over all aspects of the sale with me. She connected with all prospective buyers following a showing and we discussed whether any changes needed to be made to the sales campaign. As a result, we had many positive showings and eventually found the right buyer.
My overall experience was terrific due to Ruthan's dedication to making the best sale possible. My property had some features that made the sale take a little longer, but I absolutely feel that she was instrumental in finding the buyer who would love the home the way I did. Her encouragement throughout the process is a testament to her commitment and her truly caring nature.
Alisa Mead, Lake of the Woods (Seller)
“Ruthan is a knowledgeable, helpful and extremely enjoyable person to deal with.”
Buzz Guroff, McLean VA (Seller)
“Our history with Ruthan O'Toole goes back 19 years when she helped us select a lot on which to build our house. Additionally, she recommended a builder to build our custom home and helped us throughout the process. She certainly went the extra mile with us. When it came time to sell that house, there was no doubt that Ruthan would be our realtor.
Both times, Ruthan and her staff provided outstanding service from the first step to the last. Would also like to mention the excellent choice of the videographer who made the photos and videos of our home look even better than the actual house. A fantastic first impression for home buyers.
Although we put our house up for sale in January (typically a slow sales period), we had quite a bit of traffic from prospective buyers almost right away, and about a month later we had a contract.
Christine Purtell is another Century 21 Redwood realtor who very ably helped us and Ruthan seal the deal to sell our home. Although a relative newcomer to the real estate industry (Christine previously had a lengthy business career), she proved to be knowledgeable and energetic and quite personable.

John Rueckert Fayetteville, PA (Seller)
“Ruthan knew my family and her knowledge of the area and housing market was a perfect fit for us. As busy as she is, she always gave us her time and never seemed to be in a rush. We called her often during the closing process and her knowledge was so valuable to us. We felt very blessed to have her as our broker.”
Dave & Melanie Przybocki Fawn Lake (Buyer)
“The house Ruthan O'Toole sold for our family had been previously listed with several other realtors who were unable to close a deal. She said she would have a deal for us within three months, and she did. With a month to spare. She was always right on top of every aspect of the sale, kept us on track, provided encouragement, and gave us excellent advice. Ruthan is a true professional. Our family could not be happier. I would recommend her without hesitation.”
Lorie, Rhoadesville (Seller)
“ We have been customers of Ruthanne O'Toole at Lake of the Woods, twice in the last 10 years.
The first was to buy our present home at Lake of the Woods and the second -most recently,-the sale of Barbara's Mother's home, also at the Lake. In both cases, she did an excellent job and we would highly recommend Ruthanne to anyone who wants a seasoned,confident, knowledgeable,caring real estate agent.
Both of us are sincerely appreciative of all the efforts Ruthanne took to sell our home. After the listing we had a ratified contract in a little over two weeks! Also everything up to and including the closing went very smoothly ,as she handles all the details.
George and Barbara Lewis”
