Todd & Maria Ruckle

  • Todd listed and sold my home

      The entire Ruckle team was exactly as advertised. They handled virtually everything for the selling of our house since we were out of state. The team communicated with us regularly, I felt they did their best to keep us in the loop. Sherri, you're a valuable asset to this team. You have patience, knowledge, wit and a great sense of humor (Richard Gere).

    • Todd listed and sold my home

            Highly satisfied. Would recommend to anyone looking in the DE area!

          • Todd listed and sold my home

              Todd was great, I was very overwhelmed selling my home and, he made the process seamless!

            • Todd listed and sold my home

                Todd and Maria were great. Very easy to work with and very accessible during f the entire process of selling our home. Highly recommended for anyone looking to sell their home.

              • Todd listed and sold my home

                  Todd and Maria were excellent. They did everything over and above for us. I searched Homelight after not being satisfied with another agent from a totally different agency. Todd came in and took over the much stressful headache of trying to sell a house for us. Not only did he sell the house but he was able to get us even more then we expected and was asking for. Along with his wife Maria they are the absolute best when it comes to listing and selling a house. We have moved to another state but if we come back they are on speed dial to help with buying a home. My wife and I highly recommend the Ruckles.

                • Maria and Todd are simply the best! Ive bought two homes with them and sold one. They never stop doing what they can to make things easier. Super responsive (do they even sleep?)! If you need a good realtor, look no further!!!!!

                • Todd and Maria have exceeded my expectation on both ends of a sale. I would never work with anyone else. They make the process as stress free as possible. I would highly recommend them to anyone.

                  - user3222613, Newark, DE
                • Todd and Maria are FANTASTIC. My husband and I used their services during our relocation out of the area. We had such a wonderful experience and will continue to refer clients to them. They are the best.

                  - janetta tolliver, Wilmington, DE
                • Todd and Maria are true professionals in their field. Their local knowledge of the market and past experience have safely guided me on deals to ensure I have the best interest at hand for my benefit. They take the time to walk you through the buying and selling process with patience until your comfort level are met. During some of my difficult situations they were always ready to assist and provide 100% support. You couldn't have someone better on our side than Todd and Maria and their team!

                  - deanaguilar, Newark, DE
                • "Simply Phenomenal". That's how you will describe Todd and Maria after they've helped you either buy your next home or sold your last one. We had the joy of working with Todd and Maria while relocating from DE to VA and sold the house within a week! Their knowledge, passion, honesty and integrity is out of this world. They are there for YOU 100%. I cant recommend Todd and Maria highly enough. If we ever move back to DE, their the ones well be calling to start the house search. No one else comes even close.

                  - Graham Wright, Newark, DE
                • I've known Maria and Todd for a while now. I had a hard time finding a home for a few years and they were patient, knowledgeable, and quick with everything. I just settled on my new home less than a week ago and I couldn't have done it without them! They know their stuff! From good neighborhoods to bad, things to look out for in regards to inspections, ways to negotiate with sellers and buyers, and they even add quite the comedic twist on tours!

                  - user1077197, New Castle, DE
                • Todd and Maria were very professional and had knowledge of the entire process from the very first house showing all the way through settlement. They worked directly with the seller to make sure everything was going smooth. They were there for the home inspection and made recommendations on the repairs. They completed everything I asked of them in a timely manner. I would highly recommend Todd and Maria to anyone who is a first time home buyer!

                  - grd2326, New Castle, DE
                • Todd and Maria Ruckle are very attentive to details. They are extremely knowledgeable of the process and laws and are friendly and outgoing, but professional. We had a firm offer on our house in a few weeks.

                  - user49181066
                • I recently relocated to Delaware and Maria had a wealth of.knowledge with respect to the areas I wanted to look into. She was always attentive and receptive and answered all my questions I had. She spent a lot of time helping with me with negotiating as well as showing me around town. If I ever want to move and buy another house I would use her as my sales representative as well as my purchasing agent. One of the best Realtors I have ever dealt with and would recomend her to anyone who is looking for a house in Delaware.

                  - mjrusso13, Middletown, DE
                • Maria and Todd Ruckle were extremely professional as well as personable! They were willing to go over and beyond which is very hard to find now a days. My fiance and I were pleased with their time management, We felt like we were always put at the top of their list! From troubleshooting to advice ... its great to feel like we always had someone we could count on! We would highly recommend their agency to friends and more importantly family. We are in love with our beautiful HOME and location. We wouldn't have found it without Maria & Todds expertise! Please contact them! You will regret looking and/or selling with any other agent! Because we consider them the best of the best!!! This industry is competitive and sometimes lose its values, The Ruckles are all about VALUE!! They are AMAZING!!

                  - Brit Nick Spina, Townsend, DE
                • My husband and I were very pleased with Todd and Maria's accessibility, and expertise throughout the process. Our expertise with Todd and Maria began with them coming to our house and providing guidance as to improvements that result in most cost effective upgrades and attractiveness for a quick sale. We followed their guidance and sold our house in 22 days, quick for that time in the real estate market. Mike and I successfully reached our goals with Todd and Maria acting in our best interest from day 1 through settlement. We highly recommend them as go-to realtors!

                  - nfulton9, Bear, DE
                • Todd and Maria were very knowledgeable about the area I was interested in buying. Based on what I was looking for in a home they were able to find me exactly what I was looking for and at the right price.

                  - jrklongv, Bear, DE
                • Selling my home of 43 years after the death of my husband wasvery emotional. Todd and Maria and their staff were helpful,understanding and experienced. Would certainly recommend them to anyone buying or selling a house in Delaware and the surrounding states.

                  - flutemom10, Wilmington, DE
                • Professional and prompt something I expect from all service oriented companies. Quick to return calls even silly questions! Todd is enthusiastic and very patient when I as seller was being difficult!!! Would I use them again Absolutely!!

                  - gmama81, Townsend, DE
                • Maria helped with every question I had, whether it was by email, call, or text message. She scheduled all the houses we wanted to see in the short amount of time we wanted to see them. She knew right away if we loved or hated the house. She went through each and every house with us and let us know what we may have problems with when we did the inspection if we were to make an offer on that house. She even helped me with the problems I was having with my landlord. I highly recommend calling Maria for any realtor needs.

                  - Mandie Slack, Elkton, MD
                • Maria was knowledgeable, professional, and efficient. We loved working with her. She made the whole process painless and helped us buy our dream home!

                • Todd and his team will help your family find a home. He and his staff are dedicated to finding the right place for you at the cost that fits your budget. His knowledge of Delaware is exceptional and he responds to any questions you could possibly have in a very swift manner. The Ruckle team makes your search for a new home easy and fun. They take the pressure off of you and ensure that your family is taken care of every step of the way.

                  - user1819451, Bear, DE
                • Todd Ruckle and his team were amazing throughout the process of me both selling and buying at the same time. Everything moved so fast (everything was completed in less than ONE month!). When I needed to reach out either Todd or Sherri were there to help me and even calm a few tears along the way!! For that Im very grateful. I finally have the dream home Ive been waiting for for over 10 years! A HUGE thanks to the Ruckle Team!!! Im all smiles.

                  - bodybybarb4, Houston, DE
                • From the beginning the whole Ruckle team was there for me,Im not the easiest to please and I looked at 50+ houses before I found the one.even in the early house to the late nights the Ruckle team never let me down; they made the process easy and enjoyable!! Thanks

                  - hockeypat03, Newark, DE
                • The Ruckle Team provided professional service throughout our recent purchase. From initial showing, through contract negotiations, and finally through home inspection and associated issues, they took care of a lot of details. This was my 6th real estate purchase and it was absolutely the best experience.

                  - kropit, Smyrna, DE
                • My experience with The Ruckle Team has been absolutely amazing! I first started dealing with Todd and his team last year with selling my mothers home after she passed away, with me not knowing anything about how to deal with the mortgage company when selling a home I inherited, Todd and his team worked tirelessly to get the home sold. When my wife and I decided to buy a home we didn't hesitate to call The Ruckle Team, and thanks to them my wife and I are now homeowners!The process was easy, the team was very knowledgable and helpful, the overall experience was amazing! Great job Ruckle Team!

                  - joshua570, Wilmington, DE
                • Great experience selling our house in FELTON DE. The Ruckel Team was extra professional in every detail of the process, yet friendly and easy to work with. Thank you all for your hard work.

                  - LinaCaulson, Felton, DE
                • Very easy to talk about the value of your home that you are wanting to sell. Original listing was higher than what we thought it might go for but was willing to get the best amount for us. Very quick to respond to answers when asked, even when on vacation. Also had someone else to help out while they were out of town.

                  - volleyqueen47, Elkton, MD
                • They were AMAZING! We lucked into finding them on Trulia as a recommend realtor for a house we were interested in. We were able to talk to them in person within a day and they were so laid back and nice! The first thing they asked us was what our dream house would be. We told them a log cabin on 1 plus acres, but we never expected to find it in our preferred area. We started looking at ranch houses 45 minutes away. We had no idea they were still looking for log cabins that fit our needs. When we met again in their office they showed us this beautiful log cabin on more then 2 acres and within our location. We knew this house was perfect for us and would be a house we'd never move from. They worked so hard to get us in the house. We often found them working even at 10 at night. Their mortgage rep was also very friendly and worked past normal business hours. They made sure everything was completed by our settlement date. We've been in the house for 2 weeks and we are so in love. We can't wait to have a house warming party and their entire team will definitely be invited!!! They don't want to just sell a house to make money. They truly care about their clients and go above anything we could have expected.

                • The Ruckle Team provides exceptional service on a personal and professional level, making the home buying experience as smooth as possible. Maria came out last minute to an open house with me and was also there for every other interaction with the seller following the open house. As a first time homebuyer, I felt comfortable using The Ruckle Team, and they made a difficult process significantly easier on me!

                  - sasaville14, Wilmington, DE
                • I am not from the Delaware area and came across the Ruckle Team completely on accident. It ended up being one of the best experiences I have had with an agent. The Ruckle Team was not only highly knowledgeable and reachable, their easy demeanor and earnest interest in my preferences made the entire process so easy! As a first time home buyer, there are a lot of unknowns and unfamiliar issues to face with a house. The Ruckle Team was beyond patient with my questions and were always willing to recommend a solution or a contact to move things along. The Ruckle Team helped me get an amazing house for a great deal, and were determined to negotiate on my behalf to make it so. Overall, 5/5 does not do the Ruckle Team justice! I would rate them higher if I could. Looking forward to working with them again in the future.

                • Todd and Marie were fantastic. They were very professional and walked us through the entire process of selling our home.We especially appreciated the communication between us, the Ruckles, and potential buyers. They clearly had our best interest in mind and were able to sell our home for a great price.We relocated to another part of the country and Ruckles were able to provide us with an introduction to a great realtor in our new state.Additionally, Todd and Maria were able to introduce us to individuals and companies that were able to help us with downsizing the belongings were had in our home.Overall, we had an incredible experience with the Ruckles and would (and have) recommend them as your realtor.

                  - yyz1965, Middletown, DE
                • My family and I cant speak highly enough about the Ruckle team. Todd and Maria helped us navigate our first home buying experience with patience, expertise, and plenty of laughs, even though we purchased our home during a pandemic. Todd and Maria will forever be a part of our family. If we get a dog we are going to name him Ruckles!! Lol. But if you are looking for a realtor in their area I promise you wont do better than The Ruckle team! Thanks again

                  - aacking, Wilmington, DE
                • I love the Ruckle team , they were awesome! My process very smooth. The team work hard for me and madd sure my sale was fair. Close was a easy process , they explain everything to me ! I would recommend anyone to go through them for properties! They know there craft!

                  - Tysherra Waters, New Castle, DE
                • Maria is a gem! Buying a house 2,000 miles away was frightening, but Maria made everything super easy. Communication was constant and everything was handled quickly and efficiently. I wouldnt change a thing about our moving process!

                  - flamacue24, North East, MD
                • The Ruckle team was very professional, personable, knowledgeable and helpful in listing and selling a rental property we had. We definitely recommend them for anyone wanting to buy or sell property! They did great job and we will enlist their services again when needed!

                  - sniadowskishawnkristen, Newark, DE
                • Maria and Todd Ruckle were the best Realtors ever! Given my personality (I am very expedient about everything) it was going to take a special kind of person for me and they fit 110%. Todd and Maria are extremely responsive. Whenever I sent an email and/or text, I would have a response within seconds/minutes most times. They are very professional and patient. They really cared about helping me find exactly what we wanted. They stopped at nothing to make it happen. Negotiation skills are top notch! They take their clients personally. They are two of the most generous realtors Ive ever meant. They know everything there is to know about this business, their very familiar with the entire state of Delaware, but most importantly they are honest! They offer a lot of knowledge in the financial area as well. I am a first time home buyer and they took great care of me. If I had to do it all over again, I certainly would go with them!!! I highly recommend!

                  - msburris84, Smyrna, DE
                • Todd and Maria were absolutely phenomenal. I highly with a capital H recommend if you are looking for a realtor who will without a doubt have your back through the entire process this is the team that you need to talk to. I actually was set up with another realtor but wasnt impressed and really unhappy. So I searched for another realtor and second opinion. Todd came to visit and blew my mind on his first visit. More importantly my wife was impressed with him as well. After I switched realtors and the process restarted I was absolutely amazed at how smooth everything went. Every phonecall and email and question was answered and honestly they led the way the entire time. We just sat back and any issues that came up they jumped on it and handled it within our best interests. I am unbelievably happy and want to make sure that if your looking for a realtor The Ruckle Team is the team you need to talk to. Highly Highly recommend. Thanks Todd and Maria. It was a pleasure.

                  - mikemichellek, Viola, DE
                • Todd and Maria supported us throughout our house buying process and were so wonderful to work with - wed highly recommend! Theyre extremely friendly, knowledgeable and highly responsive. From taking us on physical and virtual house visits to walking us through each step of the buying process, recommending inspectors, lawyers and contractors, and even giving us housewarming gifts, we felt informed and well supported throughout. Thank you Ruckle team!!

                  - user07468687, Middletown, DE
                • My husband and I just closed, and we are so happy that we chose Maria from the Ruckle Team to be our buyer's agent! We weren't even sure that we were going to work with a realtor because we didn't want to feel like a "salesperson" was pressuring us. As soon as we met Maria, we knew that this process means SO much more to her than making a sale. Maria is not happy until YOU are happy. She let us know that we could be completely honest with her about our needs, our likes, and our dislikes, and that she was never going to pressure us. She is SO easy to talk with and made us instantly feel comfortable!We had a lot of questions as first-time home buyers, and there was also a lot that we would never have known to ask. In those situations especially, we could not have done without Maria's expertise! For example, in one of the early houses we toured (and liked a lot!), she was able to tell just by sight that there were Polybutylene pipes in the basement, which she advised could cause problems down the line and possibly even make it more difficult to get homeowner's insurance. I think that a different realtor might have just wanted to make the sale since we were enthusiastic about the house, but Maria went the extra mile and did not let us unknowingly walk into as situation that we couldn't afford to deal with later. She was able to anticipate issues that we didn't even know could arise, such as delays with our lender. When the lender was not keeping the ball rolling to get us to closing, Maria called them on our behalf (multiple times).When it came down to negotiations, Maria was assertive and did not back down until we were happy and our needs were met. We did have a suspenseful negotiation with the sellers when the home had a couple of defects that were important for us to resolve. They had received a statement from their contractor denying an issue with the house. However, Maria was able to determine that their contractor was not licensed in our county, and that we therefore didn't have to consider that statement as truth. My husband and I would never have been able to figure that out on our own, since the contractor's website said that he WAS licensed, but our county government website did not. Maria saved us from what could have been a huge issue that we didn't have the money to fix on our own. She successfully got us the credit that we needed from the sellers to get the repair done. Even after closing, she has been helping connect us with local contractors to make sure that we hire the very best to do the repairs. She even connected us with someone to help us build a catio for our spoiled little cat! Please do not hesitate to choose Maria Ruckle as your realtor! Everyone deserves to have a realtor like Maria who fights for them and is invested in their future! Thank you so much, Maria, we couldn't have done it without you!!!

                • Todd & Maria were fantastic throughout our home buying and selling process. They are extremely communicative, readily available to answer all questions, and create a wonderful experience that takes so much stress out of the entire process. My husband and I always felt supported and that Team Ruckle was always in our corner.

                  - user6131416, Newark, DE
                • I cannot say enough about Todd and Maria Ruckle. Todd's enthusiasm for his craft and his love of people made him the ideal agent. Plus having Maria as his partner made them an unstoppable team. Shopping for a new home during a pandemic is crazy, but we weren't expecting the market we encountered. Low inventory and numerous buyers made for a tough experience. There were times when my husband and I wanted to give up, but Todd kept us going with his humor and understanding. After 7 rejected offers (but 2nd place finishers), we were able to land our dream home. Todd's expertise in crafting an offer, as well as his and Maria's negotiating skills, were what got us the house. I would HIGHLY recommend working with the Ruckle Team.

                  - Vicki Kelly, Newark, DE
                • Maria Ruckle was a lifesaver!! I was a first-time homebuyer and from the moment I first contacted her, she was nothing short of a dream come true. I had worked with several realtors prior to Maria in the quest for my first home, and no one came anywhere close to the level of honesty, knowledge, flexibility, and all-around charm that Maria offers. She was completely transparent in every situation, offering copious amounts of industry wisdom, anecdotal information, and negotiation experience. She handled all of my questions (and nerves!) with her full attention and never once made me feel inferior for my lack of experience. She was a complete delight to work with (and hilarious to boot!) and I can't wait to buy and sell with her in the future, and recommend her to anyone that is in need of a rockstar realtor.
