My Testimonials

Ruth has been exceptional in helping my elderly parents sell their home. I live in Canada and I feel completely at ease knowing that Ruth is helping them navigate through this chapter of their lives. Thank you Ruth,

We would recommend Ruth Perkin to anyone! We purchased land that Ruth was the agent for and were looking to sell our home as well, so we naturally had Ruth list our home also. What could have been a fairly stressful situation with deadlines and handovers was made as least stressful as possible through Ruth’s ability to communicate, plus her professionalism and motivation to see her clients happy. We thank you Ruth for your attention throughout this process, and appreciate all your hard work in seeing our dreams of being land owners come to fruition once again.

-Joel and Suzannah Hemus

We knew as soon as we meet Ruth she was the one we wanted to market our house. Friendly, down to earth with no pretence, and hardworking. When Ruth puts her head down she's a woman on a mission! It was important for us to have someone who could convey to prospective buyers the good qualities of our house with a good practical understanding of buildings etc. We are sure that behind the scenes Ruth has a good rapport with everyone and that benefits all. We were very pleased with the sale of our house. Ruth is one of those salespeople you will go back to, we certainly will. So a big Thank You Ruth (and also to Amy)!

When we decided to sell our home at Snells Beach we thought we would try selling privately. After a month of very little interest we agreed to list with an agent. After doing our homework we listed with Ruth Perkin from Mike Pero in Warkworth. We knew Ruth had sold other homes in our street and we had received positive feedback from the sellers. We had a good response from our first open home and had a buyer within a week. We would highly recommend Ruth to anyone wanting to buy or sell in the Rodney area.

Selling a house can be stressful and difficult experience. This time round I chose Mike Pero Real Estate and listed my house with Ruth Perkin and Jeff Montrose. I have bought and sold a number of properties over the years, I can say without hesitation that Ruth and Jeff have provided the easiest and most professional sale transaction that I have ever had. Ruth is fantastic to work with, she handled the open homes and viewings in an engaging and professional manner, working easily around my requirements and travel commitments. When an offer was presented, she made the process clear and easy to understand. I wholeheartedly recommend Ruth and Jeff to anyone selling or buying their home. I got a great result and came away from the whole experience very happy indeed.

When driving to our holiday home at Snells Beach we stopped at a Mike Pero signboard and wrote down the agent’s name. It was a stroke of immense luck—from the first time we met Ruth Perkin with her proposal we knew that we had made the right choice. She was always gracious and acted in a courteous and competent manner to ensure our maximum satisfaction —she has diligent working habits and coupled with humour it gives her the edge in completing her task. Finally her ability to relate well with prospective clients makes her an excellent real estate agent. Needless to say she received multiple offers and sold our house within three weeks—most important of all the process was stress free. She is indeed a special sales agent and we now consider her a personal friend. If you are looking for a real estate agent we are absolutely confident that you will be more than satisfied with her performance in marketing your property

-Ivan and Millie

We would like to express our thanks for your help in selling our property at Sandspit. Selling a house can be a stressful time for the owners and particularly so for a house like ours which was very large and slightly unusual. From our first meeting we felt you understood very well the sort of buyer we were looking for and you meticulously planned a Mike Pero marketing campaign to find that very buyer. We found it a pleasure to deal with you throughout and your warm, humorous, yet totally professional manner made the whole process run smoothly and completely stress free, resulting in a sale which we were very happy to achieve. We would have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone considering selling their property.

-Martin & Pam

We found Ruth Perkin to be a lovely, bubbly lady. She was extremely honest and informed us with information straight away. There was never a problem with getting hold of her and she was always quick at getting back or meeting up, which is what we like. She has her finger in the game and knows the market well. Which is extremely important when selling.

-Trish and Shaun

Thanks Ruth

My Warkworth property was sold by Ruth Perkin, I was very happy with the sale procedure that was carried out. Ruth was very helpful and obliging in many ways to make the sale go smoothly for me. Ruth kept me well informed throughout the whole process which made a quick and happy sale for all involved.

-Denise Oyler

We have known Ruth Perkin for a number of years and have always used her to list our properties during that time. We have appreciated the professional and personable manner in which she operates. She has juggled the interests of ourselves as sellers, the needs of our tenants and the prospective buyers masterfully. We have always been 100% satisfied with her service. It is a privilege to recommend Ruth.

-Grant & Wendy Pickles

From the moment Ruth approached me she worked with integrity and determination to sell my home. Everything was done professionally and promptly. I couldn’t have asked for a better person to work with. Ruth certainly took away so much of the hassle and stress of selling a home. I was very pleased with the outcome and would not hesitate to recommend Ruth as a very determined and capable real estate agent.
