Ruth was great for both the sale of our home and purchase of the new house. Her listing process and approach was excellent from the advice on staging the house, the photos, and crafting the description. Our house sold within mere hours of listing!

We were "difficult" clients with requirements for a home and property to buy that made it challenging to find. The search took awhile and Ruth was very helpful through it all. She helped us clarify, regroup and open up new possibilities as we kept searching until finally we found the right home for us. Ruth was very friendly but professional at the same time. She worked hard and was determined to meet our needs. And Ruth's sense of humour was a delight throughout. Thanks very much Ruth.

Olivia made the house buying process enjoyable and easy, when we were expecting a lot of stress!  She was available whenever we need her day or night to answer any questions. We valued her opinion & are so happy with our final decision.

Jumping into a new experience of purchasing a condo can be an overwhelming first step. Olivia made this a seamless transition for me. Not only was she very good at actively listening to what I was looking for and delivering on what mattered most - she also went above and beyond what i had expected out of this experience on all levels. I am very grateful to have had Olivia on my side through this process and I will be a returning customer when the opportunity arises.

As a first time Home Buyer I was lost in this new world. Olivia was there to help with any questions I had and kept me on track to make sure I got what I was looking for and not get distracted by the "Oh shiny I must have feel". Her Knowledge help me understand everything and handle the buying a house a lone a lot easier.

To all of you out there considering selling or buying a home, I wanted to share a few thoughts about the journey I am presently experiencing. I have used Real Estate services many times over the years both in selling my home, my business building, and land etc. We all know this industry is very complex with changes occurring faster than we can keep up sometimes. The changes with social media, computers, videos, and online marketing have all contributed to different presentations in this industry, making ‘searching' for that perfect purchase a very exciting but often overwhelming experience. The economy has also drastically affected how people are selling and buying. Working with a realtor who can do all of this with you and often on your behalf because they have paid attention to such personal deals is a real bonus. I was also looking for someone who was creative, willing to think 'outside the box', positive thinking, flexible, always open to new ideas, including networking with other realtors, expanding the reach at every innovating opportunity. I was fortunate to connect with Ruth Alexander who has been a good fit for me as she checks off all of the above. We are experiencing great results with her plan. Her honesty, energy and efforts are quite remarkable. I am so pleased to have her represent me in this journey selling my home and other real estate holdings. Times have changed, she has changed with them, and I am thrilled to be working with her.

It was an absolute pleasure working with Ruth as first time home buyers. Ruth went the extra mile to ensure we fully understood the process and cleared up any doubts we had. We had anticipated the house buying process to be stressful but with Ruth it was filled with fun, humor and joy. She went the extra step to ensure our safety moving into our dream home. Especially the week leading up to possession, with a worldwide pandemic unraveling Ruth was the calm amongst the storm. She replied to every text and phone call with the reassurance and confidence this first time mamma needed. We confidently felt that our best interest were her top priority. Many thanks for the beautiful roses, freezer meals, diapers and goodies. It will be a reminder of you and your very generous spirit. It was a pleasure working with you and we hope to see you around the neighborhood soon. In the meantime we wish you continued success. We highly recommend Ruth to anyone looking for a home in the Strathmore area.

Working with Ruth was as easy and enjoyable as a spa day and my experience was almost as quick. In 1 fun, casual discovery meeting Ruth had the perfect condo in mind that instantly ticked all the boxes as well as many I needed but just didn’t know it yet. Being new to the city I couldn't give Ruth much direction but I put myself in the hands of a professional and she got the job done superbly in 4 days start to finish. A couple weeks later and I am comfortably settled into my the little slice of corner heaven. The entire experience left me calm and relaxed. No need to worry about any of the details as everything was taken care of for me. It is the small details that continue to surprise me. Ruth even arranged for me to have snacks for move in day. Expert guidance; great customer care; and incredible intuition. Working with Ruth was by far the easiest and most fun real estate experience. Thank you so very much Ruth.
We felt very comfortable dealing with Ruth and appreciated that there was no pressure in the whole process of purchasing the property we are going to moving in soon. Ruth made herself available at all hours and on weekends, which was very important to us because of our busy work and life schedules. In the beginning, we were so nervous to purchase this home. It is great home but on short notice (there was another competing offer coming soon right after we have our first showing). Ruth answered all of our questions and gave us the information we needed to make our decisions, and made the purchase process seamless. Although she has just begun her real estate career, we do like her professional, knowledgeable, and straightforward approach. Ruth is so open, warm and honest. We would highly recommend Ruth to our friends, family and others.

As a busy professional and business owner, as well as a single parent, my time is extremely valuable. Each minute counts so when Ruth approached me to help me find my new ‘forever home’ I did not hesitate in hiring her. Ruth’s keen listening skills as well as an ability to intuitively match me and my lifestyle to the perfect home is a gift. She was punctual and organized but most of all, I appreciated how she kept all lines of communication open while presenting all possibilities and allowing me to make the best decision for myself without pressure. I also enjoyed shopping for homes with Ruth as she added a lot of humor and made everything fun. Searching for a home can be stressful, but Ruth made it a pure joy. I would recommend working with Ruth for her professionalism and genuinely caring nature to all of my friends and family.
We are absolutely thrilled to work with Ruth Alexander. We have a unique property in this economic downturn, and Ruth has been very respectful of our particular needs and the special features of our home. The presentation material photos, video, brochures and most especially her social media, are all first class and well written. Our dialogue with Ruth is down to earth, which we really appreciate no hype and No over the top promises. Ruth is honest, authentic and a big thinker, If you are looking for a realtor who thinks outside the box and uses her creativity to make sure your home stands out against the rest, we highly recommend building a long term relationship with Ruth.
Kirsten & Mike G.
We chose Ruth Alexander as our realtor because, when we first met and did a walk through our home, she was straight and honest to the point. Ruth seemed genuinely excited to list our unique rural property, and in that excitement, it gave us the push we needed to get the suggested work done to get our house ready to sell. We ware genuinely overwhelmed that someone would go above and beyond for complete strangers. Ruth not only gave us the push we needed, she spent a full day with her team working hard to put our home’s features in their absolute best light. We would recommend Ruth to anyone trying to sell their home in a tough market because she will do the work to make it happen.

I have known Ruth for many years. So when a colleague who is new to Calgary was looking for a realtor that would assist in searching condo in the downtown area, I knew Ruth would be the ideal fit. Ruth’s dedication to taking care of her clients and attention to detail provided the perfect runway for a brief search and the perfect condo. I would highly recommend Ruth to anyone who is looking at property in Calgary area.
What a creative and strategic visionary. As the Marketing Manager for Automobili Lamborghini Ruth was the lead on our Calgary point grand opening. From conception to execution every detail was met not only as a to execute the event but beyond the event as well. A progressive and forward thinker it was a pleasure to work with Ruth and her team on a successful milestone for Automobili Lamborghini America.

Ruth is a marvel when it comes to event marketing and fundraising. She is highly creative and her execution flawless. She is natural leader who brings out the best in those part of her team. If you are looking to take your fundraising event up a notch or looking to create one from scratch she is the one to deliver, hands down.
Elizabeth G.
We met Ruth couple of months ago to get advise and consultation on our image and digital marketing for Homeyture which is an online furniture store and interior decoration. She was the person we were looking for to take our business to next step. We are happy to have you in our team. Thanks
Sam R.
I have known Ruth personally and professionally for several years now. She is a driver, ambitious and details oriented. When Ruth says she will do something, she does. She is principled, introspective and very professional. She is an influencer. And she most certainly is a good friend.
Katherine L.
Ruth Alexander and her company, Image Media Marketing has been wonderful to work with. While the Calgary Performing Arts Festival has only worked with her for a short few months we have accomplished so much. Ruth is creative, connected, and a consummate professional.
Young-Mi K.
So pleased to bring Ruth onto my client's project. Her understanding of the brand and vision with her ability to strategically turn it into a truly immersive experience was and is amazing. Can't wait to work with her again soon.
Victoria B.
Ruth is great to work with, and I definitely would recommend her.
