Jeff and his team really went above and beyond. They were flexible on communication, went above and beyond on everything from collecting and forwarding mail, meeting contractors at house, just made the whole thing seamless for us. Above all, they did a great job with the listing and sale! Thanks!
We were looking to purchase a home in a very quick turnaround and Jeff was great! We were first-time home buyers and he was very helpful in guiding us through the entire process. Jeff's attention to detail was very helpful in the inspection and negotiations process [Buyer of 699 Bluffview Drive, 43235].
Very professional group. Working with Jeff and his team was great. From first meeting Jeff to meeting and working with everyone on his team we found the experience very educational and enjoyable. They worked with us to develop a solid sale's plan that left us with excellent results.
A friend of mine recommend Jeff Ruff as a realtor when I was thinking about selling my condo. She had had 2 great instances where Jeff worked with her on selling/buying houses. She couldn't have been more right when she referred me to Jeff. As soon as I contacted Jeff, he was extremely helpful in guiding me thru the selling process. I live in France, so being located so far away from Columbus, I was worried the process would be intricate. Jeff and his team made it really easy for me: from contacting my current tenant to make arrangements getting into the place, to getting cleaning crew, plumber, electrician, etc to get the place just right for closing. The place wasn't even listed 24 hours that we already had a solid offer and a few more really interested. Within one month, the place was listed and closing had happened, while I didn't even have to make the trip from France. It truly was a fantastic experience working with the Vutech Ruff team.

Thank you for your precious help! I truly appreciate everyone's professionalism and efficiency. I must admit, I never thought the whole process would go so quickly and as smoothly, being physically so far away from Columbus.

We had a stringent selection criteria and interviewed several local realtors. We went with Jeff Ruff as he met or exceeded or criteria. After listing, he immediately went to work and soon after that we were in contract for our home sale. I cannot speak highly enough of Jeff and his team as they surpassed all expectations.

Worked with Jeff twice, first when selling our house in the Merion Village and buying a house in Bexley; then when buying a house for myself. Jeff is simply the best. He was able to give me the best advices to find the house that I needed, and provided constant support and help during difficult times. He and his team are extremely professional and experienced. Highly recommended.
We couldn't have been happier with Jeff as our agent for both our sale & purchase. He was able to get traffic through the door very quickly and the marketing materials and photos were gorgeous. His reputation in the area & knowledge of the market really helped in working with the buyer's agent and they were both able to collaborate and help us work on a short timeline. I've already started recommending V&R to friends and family.

Jeff worked with us to find the perfect home that meets all of our requirements in a community where demand is high and choices are limited. He helped us deal with pre closing damage issues and continued post closing to monitor the repairs.
