We would like to share with you our experience working with Larry Ruby and his company, Sheraton Investment Services. To say that he and his group are consummate professionals with fantastic customer service and attention to detail would be faint praise indeed.

We had family pass away unexpectedly last year, and inherited a home that was in need of some TLC before it was marketable. Some work was done, but it languished unsold for many months. We, living out of town, had a great deal of difficulty dealing with the problems involved in trying to refurbish and sell a house in another state. Fortunately, through our legal representation in Chico, we met Larry Ruby.

Larry met with us and detailed the work he envisioned. The obvious flaws in the home were seen by all, and he detailed his plans to remediate them. What sets Larry apart from the others is what we didn’t see, but what he envisioned for the house. By adding some touches, making sure the house felt more like a home, and improving the curb appeal with a new lawn and landscaping, he fashioned a gem.

It could be argued that any good realtor could do these things. This may be true, but there is an element that sets Larry apart, and that is his ethics. When we first examined the house with him, it had already been on the market and failed to sell. Larry looked at it and said, “I wouldn’t put this house on the market in its present condition, I’d be too ashamed to show it.” His philosophy is that every project he works o is a direct reflection on him and his company. Larry and his team worked on the house to get it in prime condition to sell. We conversed with him several times during the process, and he kept us abreast of the progress being made. It was only when he was satisfied that the home looked its best that he put it on the market.

How well did he do? Well the results speak for themselves. The house sold for $10,000 more than the initial asking price within a week after multiple offers.

We cannot speak highly enough of Larry and his team and recommend them without any reservations.

House hunting is scary, challenging, and one of the most stressful experiences we’ve navigated as a husband and wife. Larry stepped in and made the entire process incredibly less stressful and even fun at times! He was available to us on short notice and offered us his incredible wisdom and advice as a result of his years of experience. We ended up finding and buying our dream home! Not only did Larry and his team make the entire process EASY (now that says a lot), but they made us feel safe, excited, and comfortable. Larry answered all my questions and always communicated about every step during the process. He even went above and beyond and left us the kindest gift for our first night in our home. He was the BEST person for the job and would recommend him to anyone looking to buy a house. He actually made the whole process enjoyable!

I’m writing this note to let people know what a great job Larry did on selling my house. Which, in these times, took constant work and knowledge of this industry to make it work.

With the housing market in such a terrible slump, I feel very fortunate that my house sold and with a not-so-bad reduction in the asking price.

When it looked pretty bleak for selling the house, Larry pulled out a few tricks of the trade and things started really moving. It wasn’t very long after that when it sold. I’m very satisfied with the selling of the house and the monies I received from it. I highly recommend him to sell your house in these hard times.

Real Estate Investors,

Larry Ruby has managed our 16 unit property for the past 15 years. During that time he has increased value through both maintaining and improving the property to achieve maximum returns.
When the time arose to sell, I did not hesitate to have Larry handle the transaction. He quickly found a qualified buyer and took care of all details to smoothly result in a closed transaction. Closing on time and with expenditures for closing less than I anticipated.
I would highly recommend Larry for any real estate needs, sale, and property management.

Thanks Larry,
