    • As an investor/builder in the South Bay and surrounding areas I rely on top real estate professionals to assist in my operations. Bill has continually been an asset for me both on the purchase and sale of my projects. He is very professional, has a dedicated staff and most importantly has a great understating of the local market. His continued success and large market share are a testament to his abilities. I would happily refer him to anyone looking to get involved in the real estate process.

    • Bill is the most incredible agent! He is responsive, energetic, competitive and has the best interest of his clients at heart! My place sold the day after it was put on the market. Bill does his very best to constantly network and always has a buyer in mind. He encouraged me to list my place for much more than I felt I would get and it sold for that amount! He is a jewel in the South Bay and has the most positive reputation whenever I bring up his name.

      - Kaholmes918
    • Bill is a dedicated knowledgeable and honest expert of real estate.As a first-time home buyer, I was really not sure to expect about the buying process, but Bill made it easy. Within two weeks of meeting him, I found a property that was perfect for me -- a property that already had received an offer before the open house was complete. I wasn't sure we had a chance, but Bill told me not to worry. We talked through our strategy and he spent that night working up a winning offer he submitted the next morning. Bill is responsive, professional, caring, smart, and has forged great relationships in the industry. He was able to recommend contractors for little projects and has kept in touch after the sale to make sure everything is going well. That says a lot about the kind of person he is -- he's about finding the right fit for the buyer, not just making a sale and moving on. I highly recommend calling Mr. Ruane if you're looking for someone to help guide you through the process, address your concerns, and help you seal the deal in this very competitive housing market.

      - Mirko V.
    • Bill Ruane is an outstanding real estate professional. He secured getting our dream house with masterful negotiation that worked well for all parties involved. He was extremely responsive at all times. His knowledge of the profession is unsurpassed. He was "full service" with providing recommendations of other professionals to work with such as house inspectors and mortgage specialists. His focus is on the client and what they want and need. After working with Bill, I know what it is like to work with an exceptional real estate professional who has integrity. He is a class act and recommend him without any reservations.

      - tderusso9
    • Bill and his impressive team guided us through the entire process. They went above and beyond what we expected. We couldn't have been happier! We tried to buy a short sale and they were with us for many months, until we gave up. Then they found the perfect place and lead the negotiations and helped us find financing. We just moved in and it was a great experience!

      - user56768911
    • Bill was amazing to work with! He was able to provide us with specific market feedback and value of our home that was significantly over our expectations. He was able to connect us with a buyer before our home even went on the MLS! It was a smooth process and he kept us informed and up to date through out! He was approachable and always available. His staff was friendly and helpful! If you are selling a home in El Segundo - he should be your Realtor!

    • Bill and his team made my first time buying experience very seamless! They handled everything quickly, professionally, and always made themselves available whenever I had questions. Bill is super personable and a serious go-getter when it comes to helping you find your perfect home. He has many amazing staff members in his office, they are completely on point with all of the real estate processes and paperwork. They are also as dedicated as Bill is to their clients; when I found my future home, Athena from his office stayed late (after 9pm!) to finish up the paperwork to put the offer in. Their office also uses DocuSign, which is SO helpful allowing you to e-sign documents via email. After a smooth escrow process, I was finally in my new home and the first day in Bill and his office had even sent a house-warming gift! Such a nice touch - I highly recommend everyone to go to Bill as their realtor, there's a reason he is top rated in California for Remax!

    • We would highly recommend Bill to anyone wishing to purchase a home. We were so impressed with how responsive he was to us. Answers his phone everytime we called. He has assembled an incredible team to help him. They were all so willing to help us through the process. And, again, communication is key and they answer emails and voicemails right away. That is so impressive. Our purchase slid through with no problems at all and if we had any slight hiccups, we were told immediately and everything was explained throughly. Can't say enough for this great team! Thank you!

      - user2236611
    • Bill and his competent staff helped us sell our home in Palos Verdes and buy a wonderful home in El Segundo. Bill is extremely knowledgeable about real estate, particularly in El Segundo. He worked with us for over 6 months to find the perfect house in a fabulous location. Bill and everyone at ReMax, El Segundo treated us like family. They are warm, caring individuals and we trust Bill and his team 100%. We wholeheartedly recommend Bill to anyone looking to buy and/or sell a home in the Southbay.

      - mashla0301
    • I interviewed 5 realtors before deciding to go with Bill. He was the most responsive and engaged of the group, which included the top realtors covering my neighborhood. He was helpful in arranging the staging the property and made many helpful suggestions present the house well. I was satisfied with how they marketed and the showings were regular. His staff was equally responsive and helped me enormously as I was out of town for most the time the property was listed. We closed in about 4 months despite a listing that started during December of 2014 which is typically a dead time for sales. I am very confident in recommending Bill and his team for their professionalism and proactive marketing expertise.

      - mwinter8
    • Excellent personal service and very hands-on. Quick to respond to requests and questions. He was instrumental in helping us to buy our first home and to find a home that fit all our criteria. His wealth of knowledge and experience helped us to navigate the process for the first time. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for assistance in the real estate market. You need him helping you!

      - kristink egan
    • Bill Ruane and his professional team are the best. He helped us find and purchase an investment property in Gardena, and we will be sure to go back to him whenever we need a realtor. He is extremely knowledgeable about the LA area, super responsive (around the clock), and very patient. Choose Bill, you won't regret it.

      - karenxylee
    • I had a wonderful experience using Bill Ruane to sell my condo in El Segundo. You cannot beat his local knowledge of the El Segundo real estate market. He encouraged me to list my condo for a higher price than I thought I could get. The selling price ended up even higher than that! I was very impressed by the timely, professional, and personal service of all the professionals in his office. Every issue or question was dealt with promptly and thoroughly. They took care of the open house, escorting the inspectors, and even met a plumber at my house after an unexpected problem after I moved out. They kept on top of all the paperwork needed and made sure I understood every step of the process and that I met all the deadlines involved. Bill was also very helpful and professional in handing the post-offer negotiations. He took care to listen to what I wanted to accomplish and then he made sure it happened. I am very grateful for his insight, guidance, and experience. I am equally grateful for the help of every member of his staff. They all knew of the details of my sale and I could talk to any one of them for answers to my questions. The entire process was remarkably easy for me, and I attribute that entirely to Bill and his team. I would recommend Bill Ruane unquestionably.

    • This was the smoothest house sale I ever had. Bill and his team made it work like clockwork and they never missed a beat. I have dealt with many real estate agents in the past and Bill provided the smoothest and easiest transaction. Its great to work with someone that lessons to what the customer wants and delivers. Thanks so much for making this so easy to sell our house and working with us to keep it simple and easy. The team, and I do mean team, have been wonderful and I want them to know how much we appreciated them. My wife really loved the weekly flowers and I hope to continue that once we move into our new house. I know we will keep in touch and let each other know how things are going. Im sure in the future we will be doing more business like income property or other real estate transactions so we will keep in touch. Thanks again for the smooth transaction and the refrigerator. I know we can use the refrigerator for our bar.

    • When we decided it was time to look to upgrade to a bigger house, Bill helped us find a house we love, got a respectable price on the sale of our previous house, then worked the dozens of details to close both the sale of the old home and purchase of the new home. Both Bill and his staff were awesome. They are knowledgeable, responsive, and friendly, and assisted us with every aspect of the process. We are extremely happy with this experience.

      - jimmyjimmy8
    • Bill and staff exceeded my expectations from start to finish. I really don't know how the process could have gone more smoothly. My house sold in less than a week and for the full asking price.

      - pmorrisonsmith
    • It was a pleasure to work with Bill Ruane and his staff on the sale of our home. Bill was knowledgable and honest in assessing our house value and helped us to obtain the resources we needed to make corrections. House sales and purchases are typically stressful as buyers and sellers try to maximize their value. Bill and his team were calming and always available to provide status and answer questions. Bill worked diligently to find a buyer for our home which resulted in a successful sale. We are confident we chose the right agent to list and sell our home

      - llnws
    • He consistently proves to me that he is the best realtor in El Segundo. He ansd his saff were amazing to work with. With all the questions we had they were always on top of getting back with us. I would highly recommend Bill Ruane with both buying and selling your home. We did and had a great experience.

      - amadprez
    • My family has lived in El Segundo for the past 52 years. Myself along with my mom and dad and brother have used Bill for all of our real estate needs since he became a broker. You will not find a more professional realtor along with an excellent and professional staff anywhere. I have placed my trust in Bill over the years and he has never let me down. Professional, honest and extremely hard working, Bill is our family's go to realtor for both commercial and residential properties.

      - sdoukakis
    • Bill was always very responsive and listened to our needs. He was very patient and always answered our questions not matter how many times we asked them. He was always present at every initial house viewing which indicated his attentiveness to his clients.

    • Working with Bill Ruane and his highly skilled team to sell our house was a pleasure. The reason he is so highly respected and successful in the field is obvious once you have the opportunity to work with him. They operate at the highest level of professionalism and reliability. My wife and I were very unfamiliar with sales process and terminology, and Bill and his staff were able to keep us completely informed and comfortable to make the transition seamless. Utilizing Bill Ruane's experience and influence in the real estate community made all the difference in maximizing our investment. Thanks Bill and Team!

      - Michelle McAllister
    • Mr. Ruane is an incredible realtor and resource. He was responsive to every request and kept us informed throughout the entire process. I hope not to have any future needs for home sales, however if I do, I will certainly call Bill for assistance.

      - Skiya365
    • Bill Ruane worked with my wife and I for over a year in a very competitive buyers market to find us the right home. We couldn't be happier and would highly recommend him.

      - teddyhart
    • Bill recently assisted my husband and me with both the sale of our townhouse and purchase of our home. He was extremely hard-working, accessible and knowledgeable, not to mention patient with our many, many questions and phone calls throughout the process!! Bill also has an excellent team of assistants who were very helpful and friendly, and both he and his team were always quick to respond to any emails or phone calls, and never "left us hanging". I highly recommend Bill Ruane for any real estate needs. You will be in good hands!

      - shannonlavis
    • I was faced with a difficult situation as I needed to sell my rental house in LA where I had tenants that loved the house, but I was located on the East Coast. Bill and his team understood the sensitive nature of the situation, but worked diligently to get the house listed and sold. Successfully selling a home from across the county with difficult situations to deal with requires an agent that is trustworthy and dedicated like Bill Ruane. Thank you Bill and Team!

      - eweis9
    • Bill helped me to sell my deceased fathers home located in California. I live in North Carolina which made it difficult for me to be there to look after the home. Bill and his staff took responsibility and handle matters in my absence, going above and behind. He was there to speak with the police when squatters took over the house. When we got them out he was able to sell my property quickly. I am grateful to have been introduced to such a great team. They were professional and courteous at all times.

      - cdlock79
    • It was 27 years ago that my parents first met Bill Ruane. Bill worked with my parents to find investment property. He found for them a wonderful townhouse investment in El Segundo. Several years later he found for them a single family residence also in El Segundo. Both of the properties were great investments. Bill also worked with my parents to find very good renters as was needed over the years. He has always been available to them. In taking over their business and taking care of my parents, I now have worked with Bill. He helped me to sell the properties at top prices in the market. Every step of the way, we benefited from Bill's vast experience and professionalism.

      - carlawcooper
    • If I didn't know any better I would have thought that I was Bill's only client. He got back to me so quickly and at all hours of the day and night. He was always positive and upbeat. He shielded me from some difficult negotiations with the seller's agent. He was able to close the deal in a hot market and gave great advice during the process. He was professional and knowledgeable and so very generous even after closing. I highly recommend Bill! What a joy it was working with him and his team!

      - kellyelliot4
    • This is the second house that Bill Ruane has sold for us. He was great both times. Unfortunately, the first house went on the market in 2011 and stayed on for many months due to the sagging economy. Bill and his staff worked tirelessly and never seemed to lose interest in our sale. When we finally received an offer, he negotiated expertly on our behalf. Early in 2017, we decided to sell another house. This time the house was only on the market for a few days before we received an offer. Bill painlessly guided us through the sales process, he negotiated on our behalf and we felt really good about the price we received. He always answered our questions promptly and patiently. His knowledge of the real estate scene in El Segundo is second to none. I highly recommend Bill and his excellent staff.

    • Bill Ruane represented me in 2017 during the sale of an El Segundo residential property, and did so with distinction. From the very outset, his professionalism was evident and it continued to be demonstrated throughout the several months of the transaction. Moreover, his creativity and commitment were crucial at various stages of the whole process; without his very special involvement, the sale would likely not have happened.Initially there was a small element of personal concern, given that Bill had developed such a strong reputation in the local real estate market; the fear was that I would not receive sufficient attention, and might be left in the dark regarding the complex procedure of selling the home. However, those worries were soon proven totally groundless. In fact, he was amazingly communicative and friendly from the first communications until the close of escrow--even beyond that, as evidenced by very considerate post-sale followups. And given his approachability and personable nature, it's now no surprise that his staff members are likewise extremely considerate and dedicated to the customers; on several occasions, one of them contacted me with updates that amplified the information given by Bill himself.In terms of pertinent real estate knowledge, the Bill Ruane team was always top-notch. That was obviously critical in achieving all my objectives in the home sale, despite some external factors that surfaced at the most inopportune times; in each instance, Bill and his staff managed to keep the complex procedures moving forward.To summarize, my experience with Bill Ruane Real Estate was exceptionally good. I'm immensely pleased that circumstances led me to place my trust with Bill. That decision ensured that I had a stress-free process--and one that gave me full market value for the property. With no reservations, I strongly endorse Bill Ruane to anyone else wishing to buy or sell real estate in his chosen territory.

    • I have always had an interest in real estate. Until I met Bill Ruane, I would go through the listing agent to purchase property. When I met Bill, I made an exception and used his services to make an offer on a property that was listed by another agent. I was impressed with his knowledge,demeanor, work ethics and honesty which I never encountered with other agents. I have utilized Bill's services to buy and sell apartments, purchase a car wash and engage in a construction project. Bill is never too busy to answer my numerous questions and reason with me when I encounter a snag in a transaction. He also is quick thinking and comes up with intelligent approaches when problems are encountered. I don't know how Bill manages to faciitate handling multiple transactions since he is one of the top producers in the country. I have always been impressed with his services and understand why he is very successful.Needless to say, I vouch for Bill whether in a sale or acquisition of real estate and thank him for all his hard efforts in the multiple transactions he has completed for myself and my partner, a prominent physician. Thank you Bill and keep up the great work!

    • Bill is terrific! He is extremely responsive, he knows the community and the market and is extremely helpful with the entire process. He sold our place before it even went on the market! In addition, the team he has assembled in his office are all terrific. Everyone is responsive and very friendly. I would highly recommend Bill!

      - fleshmanjulie
    • Bill (and his team) is the best possible agent to work with if you're buying or selling in El Segundo. He is honest and smart about this industry - and a through and through local who has earned his reputation as one of the top agents in the country. There is no one else we'd consider buying or selling with, and cannot imagine a more client-centric realtor than Bill. His team is hardworking and reliable, giving us insider tips and knowledge that only a true professional would know. We cannot recommend Bill more highly!
