Ruth did an amazing job selling our house. She took all of my specific items I was concerned about and made sure to address them throughout the process. We had someone that we could talk to and ask every little ridiculous question at all hours of the night. Could not have been more happy with the entire process.

Ruth did a great job. She helped me out greatly. I'll definitely recommend her to my friends whenever they decide to buy a home.

Ruth was and is absolutely amazing. I found her from her signs in my neighborhood for other listings. I reached out to her for a specific property, and she was so friendly and knowledgeable that we decided to meet her to see if we wanted to use her for our listing. We had actually already decided on a listing agent, but once we met Ruth, we changed our minds. She went above and beyond the call of duty in every way possible. She was extremely knowledgeable, personable, and kind. She helped us successfully sell our home and purchase the home that we had our eye on from day one. I would absolutely recommend her to friends and already have. I like to think that I gained a new friend in this process.

My husband and I are not first time home buyers....I believe this was both a positive and negative for anyone trying to assist us with identifying a home. Ruth was very patient.

I had some wrong pre-conceived notions about the mortgage lending process - I didn't think we would qualify for several reasons. My husband thought differently which caused some tension between us. Ruth recognized this and knew we both were in need of education. She put us in contact with a lender and his team. He educated us on the new guidelines of lending and helped us to determine how to structure our down payment and pay off debt to qualify for a new mortgage. It took us 6 - 8 weeks of hard work. Ruth hung in there with us.

At first, we thought we wanted to build another custom home. I enjoyed the custom home building process, and my husband was seeking 5+ acres with lake access in our price range. The more we looked at land in the LTISD area, the more we realized - the custom home route for the area was probably going to be more expensive than we bargained. Ruth prompted us to look at existing homes. She said there were some great houses with the features we were seeking out there. Being previous homeowners - we had a long list of what we wanted in our next home. So there we go again, being the skeptic.

My husband searched and researched MLS listings while I was handling the work with the lender. When we received our mortgage pre-approval, Ruth called us immediately and excitedly asked: "when we going to look at houses?". We narrowed my husband's long list down to 10 houses. We looked at all 10 in one day. At the end of our home tour, we sat down and started removing the homes that we knew we weren't interested in. We came up with a list of our top 3 homes and made plans to visit each home again. Even though seeing ten homes was exhausting - I'm really grateful that Ruth allowed us to see all ten because it made our decision feel so much more informed and not rushed.

During the offer and home inspection process, we felt confident with our offer and requests due to Ruth's knowledge and experience.

Ruth didn't walk away when we needed help with the mortgage process. She ensured we were educated and stayed in the mix with us. Ruth didn't say - "we'll only view three house that match your criteria." She took the time to schedule viewing with all the homes on our list - we knocked it out in one day. Ruth didn't crumble at the offer stage. Ruth actually was quite assertive when we needed her to represent us on a list of several deal-killing of items.

We are now living in a beautiful custom home that is truly more thoughtfully planned with high-end features than I ever dreamed possible.

Ruth Lunday is a superb realtor. She truly was fantastic and sold our house in no time. She explained everything and was very helpful. This was our first time selling a house and she made the process very seamless. I highly recommend Ruth for all of your real estate needs.

I would highly recommend Ruth. She went over and beyond helping us through our 1st time home buying experience. Time after time she would break things down so we would understand the process. I felt we could trust her with a blank check. She is just that type of person. Any kind of business I would send her way.

Ruth was an absolute joy to work with. She was more than helpful and explained everything as we went. As this was my wife and I's first time selling a home we had a lot of questions and were unsure of many things. Ruth took the time to make sure we understood everything. On top of how helpful she was, she worked very diligently to get our house sold. It sold extremely fast, and I am very appreciative of that. I really can't say enough about how well Ruth treated us and the work she did. We will be using Ruth again in the future for all of our real estate needs.

Ruth was a joy to work with...she was very honest, knowledgeable, diligent, and just fun. If she did not know something, she found the answer. And we asked a lot of questions! We enjoyed our interactions, consider her a friend now, and certainly would recommend her.

Worked with Ruth Lunday to find a house in competitive SW Austin. She was so personable and great to work with. She listened to what I needed and I feel went out of her way to help find something that met as many of my wish list items as possible. I would easily recommend her to anyone else in need of a Realtor.

I just wanted to give a shout out to Ruth and let you know what an amazing job she did with the sale of a home to my parents down in Schertz recently. My Mom and Dad are very familiar with Texas and the San Antonio area as Dad is retired Air Force and had been stationed there many, many times. My parents sold their home in Maryland on December 18th and are now leasing my Grandmother’s home back on the family farm. They were looking for a home they could buy in Texas while maintaining a presence back in Maryland too since most of their family lives there. I found the Scenic Hills neighborhood by chance while looking for a 55+ community in the area for them. I actually met with two different listing agents to look at some of the homes for sale in the neighborhood. As a personal friend of mine, Ruth offered to assist my parents through the process. She showed them five homes on January 2nd of which they put a contract on one of them that same day.

While under contract, we experienced some electrical and plumbing issues that needed to be addressed so had to extend our option period. Those repairs were made, the inspection was done, a little more negotiating took place, but in the end they were finally able to close last week on the 28th. They are ecstatic about being back down in Texas on a more permanent basis and actually just left yesterday with their 5th wheel on the way to Port Aransas. They absolutely loved working with Ruth!

I am so thankful for her expertise and am already talking to her about a home for my son this next year and our neighbor’s daughter who’s getting married next month as well. Ruth is a jewel and I would recommend her to family and friends any day of the week. You have a keeper there!

Wonderful agent, we will definitely be recommending Ruth to any friends and family!!!! Realty Austin is the way to go when purchasing a home.

Ruth was awesome. She was very prompt in getting back to us knowing we were on a very tight time schedule. She was very helpful with the whole process as far as what we need to do financially and who to talk to for that stuff. She is/was very kind sweet and great personality, even my 5 year old son liked her. Would differently recommend her to others to schedule. She may not be a friend we see everyday but am planing on inviting her and her family to housewarming party. Real great women who was very knowledgeable about her craft and the areas of Austin.

Ruth was perfect! Ruth Lunday was an extremely hard-working realtor for us. She had many late nights with us and went out of her way to make things easy on us. We were out of town and received some unexpected showings. Ruth came to the rescue by putting our dogs out and vacuuming the floors. One of those showings resulted in a fast contract. Ruth then worked hard to find a rental to fit our budget and our family of 5 with 2 huge dogs. She was patient and knowledgable through the entire process. Never pressured and always made us feel comfortable. It was also very obvious that she has a great relationship with other realtors and the title company. She is loved by many!

Thanks for having such a wonderful employee to represent Realty Austin!

Ruth Lunday was our realtor and she helped us buy our home in Lakeway. Being new to TX, she was fantastic for us. Was always there to help and showed us 36 houses in 3 days! She knew when to chime in and when to let us "fight" it out. we had friends who came with us and we are sure they will use her too!

Ruth was wonderful. She was always very professional and very helpful. This is our 5th home purchase and Ruth by far was the best Realtor we have had. We will use Ruth again when we sell in a few years. Thank you all for helping finding a home for my family.

We love working with Ruth. She has truly gone above and beyond to help us find what we want. Morning, noon, and night (and even on her vacation!) she has worked tirelessly to find and show us properties. Any time we had questions or concerns, Ruth was there to give great advice and calm us down when things got stressful. We weren't just a job to her, she truly cared about finding us the right home. We would (and have) recommend her to friends and family in a heartbeat!

When we decided to sell our house and start looking for a new one, we were lucky to be introduced to Ruth Lunday through a mutual friend. At the time, we weren't 100% sure we were ready to move. Ruth was willing to only show us houses if she thought there was something that might be worth seeing. She didn't rush us or bombard us with a bunch of houses that weren't what we wanted. She was also very thorough about pricing our house and deciding what we needed to do in order to the sell the house. She made our decision to buy and sell much easier. We only had to look at a few houses before we found the one that we wanted and our house sold soon after. Thanks to Ruth, it was a very easy process and we would recommend her to anyone that was ready to buy or sell a house.

Working with Ruth Lunday was a complete pleasure and success for me. I had a house to sell and a house to buy. Both worked out beautifully for me. Ruth was always very professional, so pleasant and caring. I knew nothing about selling or buying, but she got me through both with my total satisfaction. She never pushed me into decisions, but let me make up my own mind. While at the same time always being there with answers when I had questions, and I had many. She definitely knew the business of Real Estate. I would highly recommend Ruth needing a realtor.

My husband and I were first time home buyers, full of questions, and very uncertain. We had a good idea of what we were looking for, but not an inkling of how to find it or how to begin the process. Enter Ruth Lunday. First and foremost Ruth listened. She managed to juggle our busy schedules, and made every effort to keep my husband and I both informed even if it involved repeating herself. We wanted to be hands-on throughout the process, to know every detail, and she obliged. She remained in contact with us via phone, emails, and countless face-to-face visits. We were never left wondering or waiting. She carefully explained answers to all our questions down to the last detail. Ruth even answered questions that we hadn't thought to ask. Ruth was organized and made viewing houses enjoyable. Because she understood what we were looking for, we found our "new home" quickly. Despite the seller being in another country, Ruth handled the situation as though she had done it many times before. Throughout our home buying experience Ruth remained calm, patient, and professional. We will absolutely use Ruth Lunday for any future real estate needs.

It was a great experience working with Ruth. She answered all my questions with patience and understanding. Ruth offered a flexible schedule and responded to calls quickly. Ruth was perfect and I recommend her to my friends and family.
