Get to Know Pearl Ahlquist-Ruby

My name is Pearl Ahlquist I have been in active Realtor for over 31 years, my passion for people and their welfare is what keeps me going, Thank You for allowing me this opportunity to introduce myself.   

I can relate to the home sellers of today because I faced simular adversity early in my own life.  My dreams were the same as many of the clients of today. 

In 1992 I was a single parent on welfare, no credit history, with a dream - I wanted to own my own home and provide for my daughter without state assistance.  I needed a plan. I decided to get my Real Estate License with the help of a very good friend of mind Marguarite Crespillo.  My parents have always been supportive and with their help I worked as a waitress in the mornings, real estate school in the afternoonand tenden bar at night although to most it seemed an impossible hurdle, I was on a mission.  I received my real estate license and began my rewarding and sucessful career in Real Estate and Lending.

It is my sincere belief that I have been successful because of my honesty, integrity, and a genuine concern for the welfare of the clients I stand for.


Over the years I have learned I have helped many people with their home buying needs, many of my clients come to me by way of referrals as I take care of all my friends and family. 

My area of specialty has to be helping people out of tight situations right now it is SHORT SALES, and credit repair, I've taken many courses in both and can honestly say I'm a certified short sales and credit specialist and these are my areas of specialties.

We used Pearl to buy our first house 8 years ago and because she was so patient and did such a great job, she also sold it for us and helped us on the long journey to purchase our forever home. I can't recommend her enough. She even helped get our old home ready for sale with repairs and updates. Definitely best in the business

2014 Pearl helped my family and I buy a beautiful home in the Sacramento area. Like most families we outgrew our beloved home of 9 years. Pearl and Randy once again came to our rescue! We found our retirement home with 5 beautiful acres off grid. They pulled strings and fought with us for 6 months of closing this impossible deal. We 100% recommend Pearl and Randy for purchasing your next home!

Pearl and her team are hands down the best! Pearl and Randy together are a force and their “can do, will do” approach gets results beyond expectations. From day one Pearl brought us in as if we were a part of the family and that is exactly how we see her, a part of our family that will continue to be there for all of our real estate needs from now on. Our particular situation was difficult but she stood by our side through it all and made sure that we were always fully informed and very well taken care of from start to finish. I will forever recommend Pearl to everyone I know for all things real estate. Her professionalism, knowledge, experience, confidence, trust, care and her enthusiastic endearing personality are unmatched and cannot be overstated. When you get Pearl Ahlquist-Ruby as your realtor you will get the results you deserve and you will gain a trusted relationship for life.

My husband and I made a mistake going through Zillow to buy our 1st home. We are extremely grateful that Pearl and Randy were brought into our lives. They helped us buy our 1st home with zero regrets. They made the process very easy. They always made time for us whether for questions or touring homes. We consider them family now. I will recommend them to everyone and anyone!
Thank you Pearl and Randy! You both went above and beyond to help me achieve my dream of purchasing a home. I will forever be great full. They were willing to commute two hours away to help me when I was dealing with a realtor who was getting me no where, they stepped up and approached everything direct without sugar coating the facts. They held my hand and made their part painless for me. I have and will continue to recommend them to all my family and friends.
We interviewed other agents, but from the moment we met Pearl and Randy, we knew they were the team to go with. Aside from being down to earth, lovable people, they impressed us with their level of experience and depth of knowledge about the real estate market. They really took the time to explain the market trends specific to our area, and gave us valuable advice on preparing the property for sale. Pearl and Randy both went above and beyond by giving us hands-on help staging the home and coordinating inspections. Once listed, we received a cash offer within 5 days. It came with a very tight timeline and a challenging buyer. Every step of the way, Pearl and Randy were there to help us through each hurdle. At times, the help came in the form of emotional support when we became stressed to the limit! They always responded quickly to our calls for help. In conclusion, if you want someone that will go the extra mile for you, this dynamic duo fits the bill. They love what they do and it shows!

Pearl & Randy are PHENOMENAL realtors! They held our hands and guided us through the selling process. When our first offer fell out of escrow, days before closing, they rapidly helped us find another buyer. They always responded quickly to our calls, emails and texts. They are extremely knowledgeable, courteous and efficient and they both have a great sense of humor! They even researched and recommended a wonderful realtor who helped us to purchase our dream home in another state! If you are looking for the BEST REALTORS, contact Pearl & Randy! They go above and beyond to help their clients! Plus, they’re fun and so friendly, too!

Working with Pearl was a breeze. As first time homebuyers having someone who is honest, directive, and professional was an absolute must. We could not have been in better hands. Pearl and Randy made one of the most stressful purchases in a lifetime feel comfortable and fun. They were responsive, helpful, and flexible. They adapted to our individual needs with ease and made us feel cared for throughout. We will be recommending them to everyone we know in Sacramento. It isn't often I write reviews but Pearl is (pardon the pun) an absolute gem. She's one in a million and we were blessed to be under her guidance in our home buying adventure. Most impressively Pearl found the perfect balance of keeping our feet on the ground and making realistic decisions while making space for heart and passion. Home buying is different than property purchasing and working with Pearl made us feel right at home. I cannot stress enough how impressed we were at every step of the way. While I know we will inhabit this home for years to come I bet much hope to work with Pearl and Randy again.
Amazing! My experience was just amazing Pearl helped me purchase my 1st home years ago and just recently helped me sell my house and both times I felt confident and educated with her guidance she made sure I understood every step in the process and made me feel like family always having my best interest at heart. From beginning to end Pearl made sure my wants and needs were met plus more. I would definitely recommend Pearl if you're looking to buy or sell call her!

Positive: Professionalism, Responsiveness Pearl and Randy are an exceptional real estate team. Pearl's 29 years of experience made the process of selling our home incredibly smooth and profitable! We are a family of professionals with busy schedules, and their accommodation to our needs was everything anyone could ask for. Pearl's turnaround time for answering questions was Always less than five minutes. The coordination between all parties was exceptional, and sensitive when there were differences of opinion within the family. The very first week we signed the Real Estates contract to sell our home they spent a good day helping with hands-on tasks in preparing and cleaning the property for the sale. Pearl is gifted with staging properties! There may be other Agents of equal caliber, but I feel certain there is no one who will represent you any better than the Pearl and Randy Real Estate team along there behind the scenes support Mark. There is an honest-to-goodness reason why they are 5-Star Realtors!
Pearl was great!! My house was not in good shape but she gave me her personal opinion and within 36 hours we had two cash offers. Fast closing and promise delivered. Couldn't be happier with the service Pearl provided.

Education is my weapon, education is power. I teach before I sell. Come let me teach you.
