"I came to Iowa from California as a complete stranger to the area. I had never bought a house, and I had no idea what this process entails. Jerad helped me through the entire process from start to finish. He helped me to find the perfect place. He helped me to understand all of the paperwork that I had to read and sign, he helped me to negotiate for things that I didn't even know I could ask for. He readily answered all of my questions and also answered questions that I should have asked but didn't know. Jerad Ruth played a critical role in helping me to establish a home in Iowa and I am grateful. His outgoing personality, honesty and professionalism make him a natural at this. I recommend him without reservation and I hope to have him as my realtor in the future. Roshan R. Iowa City, Iowa"

It was our first time buying a house and Jerad was there every step of the way. Very friendly and easy to talk to. I was always able to get a hold of him and he could answer all my questions. Hopefully we will not have to move for a long time but when we do Jerad will be the guy we call!

Jerad was very helpful and very patient with us during the process of us purchasing our first home. We were looking for someone to really guide us along the way since this was our first time buying a home and we didn't know what to do or expect with things. He also was so helpful in the negotiation process and really paid attention to every detail and had our best interest in mind. If you ever had a question or needed to get a hold of him, he would get back to you in a very timely manner. Thank you Jerad, for all of your help in helping us find and purchase our first home. I would definitely recommend him to anyone and we would definitely use him again down the road if and when we are ready to sell.

I worked with Jerad on both the sale and the purchase of my homes this summer. He was fantastic to work with. He was able to make me aware of the home I bought right as it was hitting the market and was then able to sell my property in 5 hours once we had it ready to go. His attention to detail was incredible. He was also available for any questions and made this an extremely pleasant transaction for me on both sides. I would highly recommend using Jerad for both your listing and purchasing needs.

Great experience. Jerad was extremely helpful throughout the search and buying process, and made what I?ve been told can be a very stressful experience a lot of fun. He?s really good at making sure you have the information you need, when you need it, without making it seem overwhelming. That goes for information about home construction, neighborhood covenants (HOA?s and historic districts), and all aspects of the offer/counter/inspection/closing process. He helped us look at a variety of properties to figure out what we really wanted in a home (and what kind of things to watch out for), which gave us confidence when we decided to pull the trigger on an offer. Jerad is also extremely responsive, and helped us to land an AWESOME place which met all of our criteria right as it went on the market. We feel really lucky to have gotten the perfect house in the perfect place for us, and it wouldn?t have been possible without Jerad?s help. Thanks!

Jerad Ruth was and still is amazing. As a first time home buyer I knew close to nothing about the proper steps for buying a house. He was very helpful every step of the way. I was very picky and was looking for something very specific. Jerad has a way of adapting to your needs and personality. To be honest, I wasn't sure I was going to find what I wanted in my price range, but Jerad was confident that we would. I've lived in my new house now for over 2 months and still can't believe that I found everything I wanted. Thank you Jerad!
– Derek G, May 2016
Thanks Jerad!!! After having to deal with a busy and difficult schedule on our end, Jerad was always smiling and ready to show us homes, answer questions and give honest advice (even on his birthday and valentines day!!!). Jerad had exceptional patience with us when we would bring our two very young kids along for the ride as well. Thanks for all you do! We now have a place to call home!!!
– Melissa & Jon S, May 2016
Jerad was great to work with. He was knowledgeable and thorough with selling our house and buying a new house. We would highly recommend working with him.
– Tony & Nancy H., March 2016
Jerad was very knowledgeable and helpfull throughout the whole process of selling my townhouse. He followed up on everything that was promised. He even help me find people that wanted to take some used furniture from me so I wouldn't have to move it. Even though he did not help me to find my new house in Kansas City he was concerned enough to make sure I was able to find the right home.
– Marianne D., December 2015
I met Jerad after meeting a few other listing real estate agents. Jerad was the right mix of attentiveness and allowing space, so I decided to work with him exclusively. My husband was happy with my choice for he liked Jerad too. I have a toddler and Jerad was always nice and funny with her...but more importantly "kept her busy talking" allowing me to safely view basements and other rooms. She now checks for studs in walls by knocking in other people's homes...funny. We love our new home and our relationship with Jerad. More to the points... * Jerad was a friendly, professional agent and a pleasure to work with. * Excellent knowledge of selling a home and order of operations. * Sold our home at list price within 2 weeks. * Patiently allowed me to look at dozens of homes before selecting ours. * Made inspections and coordinating contractors very easy. (He did it.) * Extremely comfortable with his knowledge of the market and negotiations. * We liked him. I know it sounds simple, but I am kind of hard to please when it comes to business and customer service. Jerad gets it. I appreciate that. I would recommend Jerad to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. Thank you.

We were short on time to look and find a town home. Jared Ruth listened to our needs and quickly provided us with options to consider which helped ensure what he presented us matched our needs and maximized the time we had to visit properties. Jared made the process of finding the right home, buying it and moving in easier than I've experienced with any other agent. He very knowledgeable about the homes in the area which allowed him to to answer many of our questions up front and avoid being surprised later on. Thanks Jared!
– Cathy O., August 2015
Jerad was great to work with over the last several months! I was so impressed with how he made face to face communication and calling to talk a priority rather than only texting or emailing. He regularly stayed in touch which really helped us to get to know each other better and helped him better know what we were looking for. Jerad was always honest, and we really felt he was looking out for us even if it meant dragging out the search, or in our case starting the search over. We went through a bit of a stressful situation, and Jerad made us his number one priority to resolve the situation that was out of both of our hands. Ultimately, he helped guide us to a perfect house in a huge time crunch. We are so happy with our new home and the service we received! We would definitely recommend Jerad to anyone!
– Steph & Brandon V, August 2015
You go above and beyond to provide a special personal touch in your dealings, and that is rare these days. So, thank you for all you do to make the whole daunting process of buying and selling a house a more pleasurable experience, and for being the thoughtful gentleman. I would love to work with you on buying a place for myself, and I look forward to that opportunity.
– S.K, July 2015
Jerad was great to work with. He was very knowledgeable, very helpful, and very patient with us through our whole process. With his help, we listed our North Liberty condo and got an acceptable offer on it all within a week (we actually got an offer the day after it was put on the market, but the listing took a few days to gather all the info, decide on a price, and get pictures done). We made a nice little profit on it considering we only lived there for two years! He also helped us buy our house in Iowa City and was amazing with all the scheduling and negotiations. We were always eager to hear his advice and he never steered us wrong. He has a great personality and is very easy to work with. We definitely consider him a friend moving forward!
– Jordan & Mike KW, July 2015
Was a wonderful Realtor that went above and beyond for me. Very good at explaining the details for first time home buyers. I will recommend him to anyone I can and will use him when I'm ready to sell.
– Klint D., July 2015
Jerad is very knowledgeable and easy to work with. He is flexible with his time, honest with his opinions, and aggressive with negotiations. Highly recommended!
– Laura B, May 2015
I am a first-time home buyer. When I met Jerad, I told him I needed an agent that, for the lack of a better term, was willing to ‘hold my hand’ throughout the process. Jerad was unfazed and has since successfully guided me through the entire home buying process.
Being a teacher myself, I can attest to Jerad’s ability to clearly explain the intricacies of all phases of the process. He is simply outstanding in that regard. I also found Jerad’s keen eye quite reassuring. During our various walk-throughs, he managed to spot a few concerning details that I would have absolutely missed on my own.
Lastly, after my offer had been accepted, Jerad maintained an extremely organized schedule that included all of the inspections and remedy requests. He is a very personable agent that uses every means available to keep in contact with (and hold accountable) the multitude of parties involved in the sale of a home. I will be recommending him to friends and family!
– Eric F., March 2015
Jerad was a great Realtor, very easy to deal with and just a pleasure doing business with. He made the selling of our home as painless as it could have possibly been. We were very happy with his services and would highly recommend him to others in the area!
– Brian & Stephanie M., March 2015
Jerad is seriously the best realtor around! He made our first time home buying process unbelievably smooth. He went above and beyond to find us the right house rather than the first house. He has great connections with people in the community and does what it takes to get the job done! What sets Jerad apart from just an average realtor is that he TRULY CARES about his clients and helps guide them down the best path for them! Not only did he put us in our perfect home, he followed up right after we moved in and even months down the road to make sure we had no complaints. We can truly call Jerad a great friend and we will highly recommend him to anyone in the market and we will be using his services in the future! Thanks Jerad :)
– Brittney & Kyle H, March 2015
Jerad was great! Knew what we were looking for as first time home buyers,was always consistent and quick to respond! Exceptional during high stress times with the holidays and was always looking out for us! Very very pleased with his services to us!!! HIGHLY recommend Jerad to anybody who is looking to buy! THANK YOU! In love with our new home and couldn't have asked for a better experience!
– Chris and Amy B, March 2015
For those looking for an outstanding, personable, and hard working Realtor, please consider Jerad for a variety of reasons. Not only was he honest and reliable, he worked extremely hard to sell our condo and help us purchase a new home throughout the holiday season. While one can imagine the stress of Thanksgiving and Christmas by itself, then consider the addition of our selling and buying properties, Jerad worked relentlessly to assure our comfort and assist in any way possible. You will not be disappointed with Jerad!
– Emily & Jeff K., February 2015
We had a great experience working with Jerad! He was first class in all aspects of our selling and buying process. Communication process was fantastic and he utilizes all the latest technologies to help clients. I highly recommend for any buying or selling opportunities.
– Seth & April, February 2015
The home I purchased through Jerad was my first home purchase, and he did an excellent job walking me through it. He was extremely helpful and more than met my expectations. He asked about, and payed attention to, what I was looking for in a home; then he sent me updates whenever he found another one that might be worth looking at. Every meeting I had with him he was prompt, courteous, and professional. He regularly called to check in and update me. When it finally came to closing time there were a few hiccups (unexpected and not his fault) and he continued to work hard to help me finalize the sale. He went so far as to drive through a snow storm to meet at the bank at the very end of business hours so we could close. If you are looking for a real estate professional to work hard to help you achieve your goals then Jerad is an excellent choice
– Kaitlynn M., December 2014
I was going to try going it alone selling my house, I was hesitant to use a realtor because I thought I could do it myself and save some money.
Ultimately, I had to use Jerad because I was moving out of state on short notice. This decision SAVED me money.
Jerad diagnosed the market and priced our home perfectly, we had a ton of traffic and my home sold quickly.
Jerad handled all of the red tape and made the process completely painless, he contacted me promptly when necessary and answered all my requests quickly even on nights and weekends.
Jerad was extremely helpful and was spot on with all of his input throughout the whole process.
– Clay and Rebecca H, August 2014
We contacted Jerad via the website and responded very promptly to our inquiry. Not only was he professional but his no-pressure style was very inviting for us, first-time buyer.
After the closing, we learned about a lot of the work Jerad did behind the scenes without our knowledge. The headaches he endured for us without our knowledge was impressive. I would not only do business with Jerad again but would highly recommend him to anyone.
– Josh & Mandie, August 2014
We recently purchased a home with Jerad. We had a short period of time to find and buy a house and he was very helpful, honest, and accessible thorughout the entire process. Everyone told me that buying a house was a pain in the butt, but it really was a straightforward easy and relatively stress free process. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone purchasing a home.
– Alan H., August 2014
Jerad is a great Realtor who does his due diligence and research and help you in every aspect of buying a property.
– Sushant S., August 2014
As first time home buyers, we had a lot of questions. Jerad answered all of out questions honestly and thoroughly. Jerad has explained everything in easy to understand terminology. When it's time to get a bigger house, Jerad will be the first person we call!
– Brent & Gina Cahill, June 2014
We had a awesome experience with buying and selling our home with Jerad. He was always quick to respond to our many questions and went out of his way to make sure the selling and buying process went smoothly. Highly recommended!!
– Deb and Mike Vogel, June 2014
For anyone who is even slightly thinking of either selling or buying a home in the Iowa City, Cedar Rapids area, please consider getting in contact with Jerad Ruth. He went above and beyond for Dan and I to help us out with the move in Tucson! He was able to get us in contact with a quality realtor down here who is willing to help us find a rental next month and get us going in the house search for next spring! He did it just because he is an awesome guy who likes to help others out! He would definitely take wonderful care of you!
– Laurie K., March 2014
A huge thank you to Jerad Ruth! Couldn’t have asked for a better realtor! We are officially homeowners!
– Jess M., March 2014
Bought an acreage and sold our house, all in the same week! Sincere thanks to Jerad Ruth, Licensed Realtor for getting the job done and exceeding our expectations!! I would highly recommend Jerad to any of you that are considering buying/selling your home. He has worked around the clock to help us realize our dreams and avoid two mortgages! It's been such an enjoyable experience working with Jerad!!!
