I met Ruth shortly after her daughter purchased the house next door to me a few years ago. I observed the kindness and generosity of their entire family towards me....a single, older woman, living alone. When I was ready to sell my home, there was no question in my mind about using the real estate services of Ruth Story and company. The entire process of listing, showing, selling and closing was 100% worry-free for me!!! Ruth presents a 100% professional and effective service every step of the way. Words cannot convey my sincere appreciation for all that was done on my behalf. Thank you!! May the Lord bless you and keep you. Rhoda
Believe the hype! In every interaction I've had with them over the last three years, Ruth Story & The Story Group have provided me with expert guidance and unparalleled customer service. They are the kind of Realtors everyone wishes they had hired - qualified, no-nonsense brokers you can love & trust.
I cannot recommend Ruth Story enough! We have worked with her and now her daughter, Kati, on the purchase of our last two homes, and they could not have made the process any more enjoyable. They are honest, knowledgeable and professional. Buying and selling your home can be such a stressful and emotional time, but they made it a smooth and easy process every time. They have become dear friends who I would recommend again and again!
Peace of mind marked my entire experience with Ruth and The Story Group. She handled everything from beginning to end, and kept me up to date throughout the entire process. Caring,calm & professional.
Ruth priced our home at the top of the market, and gave us a list of things we could do to maximize our price. We received multiple offers within two days! Her expert review of the offers helped us choose the best one. Kati was with us every step of the way in the buying process. Her help was invaluable, and made the process so smooth. You will be pleased when you call The Story Group!
Ruth is the best real estate agent I've ever worked with. She was very highly recommended to us by several people, and I can see why. She was so patient with us and really took her time to help us understand the area and find the home and location that was right for us. Ruth worked hard to understand what we were looking for and to get us the most value for our money. We love our new home, but if we ever move, we'll definitely use Ruth again!
My husband and I met Ruth Story while she was representing a house in Berkeley. Shortly after, we asked her to represent us in our search for a new home. Over the next month, Ruth showed us a number of homes that met our criteria and, by July, we found a home that fit us perfectly. While representing both the Seller and the Buyer, Ruth was unbiased, professional and available to assist us EVERY step of the way. We thought so highly of Ruth that we asked her to represent our house in Mistletoe Heights. In a down market she was able to market and sell it in less than 2 months. We attribute this to her reputation, her reliability and her practical approach to the business. We highly recommend Ruth Story and her team.
We can't thank Ruth enough for her hard work. We closed in less than 30 days from listing. She exhibited outstanding attention to detail and always put our needs first. You can't go wrong if you choose Ruth as your realtor.
We just closed on a wonderful remodel in Arlington Heights. Kati Story was our realtor and did a wonderful job through the process in finding homes that fit our needs and helping us to make the best decision possible. Getting through all of the details that come in a house buying process; from making the offer, to inspection and related repairs, to closing the deal, always takes much patience, and Kati has an endless supply of it. The Story Group was always there to help in any way possible. We are very happy with our new home, and thank the Story Group for making it possible!
Ruth's professionalism exceeds any realtor we've worked with in the past. She took great care of us! Ruth is flexible, accommodating and good natured. She provided good guidance. She is a good counselor and advisor. She worked along side us as if she was part of our family. Ruth provided individualized and personalized care. She was really part of our team.
Ruth is truly a real estate professional in every sense. Her real estate experience was clearly evident in her answers to all of our questions. The entire process was smooth. You will be pleased when you choose Ruth & The Story Group.
Listing with Ruth Story gives you the advantage of her skilled marketing, and energetic networking. She will deliver the best price for your home in the shortest possible time. Ruth will take the worry out of selling so you can move on to what's happening next in your life!
Ruth enjoys what she does, and this reflects in the excellent service she provides. She brings to the table a rare combination of real estate experience, the ability to listen, and the negotiating skills to deliver what you need.
I would recommend Ruth without hesitation. Absolutely the easiest & most pleasant Realtor I've ever worked with. Beautiful lady inside & out!
Ruth was wonderful to work with. Her knowledge and positive attitude helped take the stress out of selling our first home. I would highly recommend her to everyone I know.
A huge thank you to Kati, Ruth and the Story Group! We love our home. We warned you we would be choosy buyers, but you stuck with us and found us the perfect fit. Everything from writing the offers (yes there were multiple) in lightning speed to the painless closing made it clear why we chose such a highly experienced team familiar with the neighborhoods we wanted to be in. Thanks!
Ruth truly cares about her clients. She goes above and beyond to find a solution that perfectly fits their needs and circumstances.
From the get go Ruth took charge and provided us with everything we needed to know. She was outgoing & responsive throughout the entire process. Her professionalism was leaps and bounds above other realtors we have worked with. This would not have happened without her expertise & patience.
We had an extremely complicated real estate transaction that was only successful due to Ruth Story's extensive knowledge, problem-solving and countless hours dedicated to advocating for our family. Ruth's ability to remain calm and focused under pressure proved to be invaluable. Beyond her professional talents, Ruth has impeccable character and is now viewed as a treasured friend by our family. We highly recommend The Story Group for all real estate needs.
Ruth has sold so many of the homes in our neighborhood (76110) that we thought ahead of time she would be our Realtor. From pricing our home correctly, staging & marketing ideas, even her thoughts on the offers we received for our home, Ruth's level of professionalism was the highest we have ever experienced. We were able to turn decisions over to Ruth with confidence. The whole sequence, from our first meeting with Ruth to closing, went very well.
Ruth made the process of buying a home seem simple. Her knowledge of the homes and upcoming availability was so helpful. Her patience was extraordinary, and she was delightful to work with. We always felt like her top priority.
We worked with Ruth a few years ago to buy our first home and have recently sold that home through Ruth and purchased another. Our experience has always been awesome! Ruth truly cares about getting things done right and taking care of her clients. She always had the time for us and carries a wealth of knowledge about Fort Worth. Her knowledge and network resources are so valuable. Ruth is such a nice person. After the deal was closed, we missed communicating with her on a regular basis! She truly cared about putting us in a home that is the perfect fit.
From the time we met Ruth until we moved to our new home, Ruth was kind, friendly, professional and knowledgeable. Her skills could guide anyone in selling or buying a home! She is a true delight. It was our best real estate experience ever. We don't know how we got so lucky!
Ruth & her team (The Story Group) were professional at every step of the real estate transaction. They had top notch communication and were very reliable. They're such good people! We're delighted that we received Ruth's marketing and called her. Ruth was very kind. I liked her, and felt compatible with her working style. We would recommend Ruth without reservation to anyone selling or buying!
The combined process of selling and buying is overwhelming, but Ruth and her team were next to me, guiding me through the process. Ruth, Kati and Calvin provided honest information, shared their knowledge and always made sure I was comfortable and informed.
Ruth is very polite and thoroughly covers all aspects of selling a home. She returns calls promptly & answered all our questions. Everything went smoothly from the day we listed our home until we closed. Extremely efficient. Super lady to work with. Very intelligent realtor.
Ruth, thank you for all your help selling my house. I am thrilled that I netted what I thought I would gross originally from the proceeds. I realize that you often deal with the upper-end market and appreciate the time you took for my little bungalow. We're excited to move forward to the next chapter of our lives! Indeed, we intend to recommend you and your team at any opportunity!
Rondina & Kerry Wallace
Ruth & Kati were knowledgeable about the area & the buying process. They listened to our hopes for our home, gave us several neighborhood options, and helped us find the best home for our family! It went really smoothly even though it was a complex process.

Being from out of state, we really appreciated all of Ruth's knowledge & insight about the different Fort Worth neighborhoods. She was able to take our wishlist and find us the perfect home. We couldn't be happier!
Ruth is the sweetest person you'll ever meet! She worked tirelessly with us for years to make our dreams come true. We loved everything about working with her!
Ruth Story & The Story Group made our home buying experience wonderful! They gave us all the advice & guidance we needed. We have never experienced such great customer service.
Our home buying experience with Ruth was unbelievable! She was so great to work with. Ruth took the time to understand what we wanted in a house, worked diligently to identify suitable houses for us to look at, was always available to show us those homes and provide advice, as well as observations, on the homes we were viewing. Her patience, informed judgement and knowledge of the market conditions, as well as the areas of Fort Worth that matched our lifestyle and search criteria proved invaluable in getting us the home we wanted. Once we selected an older home in the Cultural District, Ruth far exceeded our expectations with the market analysis, negotiation and inspection process. She lined up the required home inspection, and then provided the names of reliable contractors to address the roof, electrical, air conditioning, foundation and general repair items we wanted corrected. In most cases, she called and scheduled the appointments for us.
In summary, Ruth has truly redefined what I previously expected from a realtor. I strongly recommend Ruth to anyone looking to sell or buy a home in the Fort Worth area. I will certainly call Ruth again when we need to sell or buy a home!
Ruth is extremely professional and thorough, providing thoughtful and responsive guidance. She tries to listen to what the client's needs and desires are, in order to find the right home for them.
Ruth was so helpful all along the way! She was open to us and listened well. It was about us finding OUR home, not her making the sale! Ruth's experience made us feel so much more comfortable in our inexperience!
Ruth Story is one of the best realtors I have worked with during my 35 years in Real Estate. She is friendly and extremely responsive - a great realtor!
Everything was well done and to the highest professional standards. Can't think of a thing that could be improved.
Ruth was wonderful! She was there offering her advice and expertise every step of the way. She was always available to answer our questions and concerns thoughtfully and thoroughly. She went above and beyond and made the process of selling our home and buying our new one truly enjoyable. We love Ruth! We are 110% satisfied!
We have really appreciated the great support from The Story Team. More than earning a commission, you have cemented our trust in your marketing ability and shared your knowledge throughout the process. We feel very fortunate to have had your partnership in this journey.
The best part of our experience with Ruth Story was Ruth Story! She was helpful, available and honest. She took the time to work with us to find our home. She was thorough and thoughtful in this process. Ruth helped us find the perfect home for our needs!
Ruth, I think you know this already, but we enjoyed working with you on selling our house so much. Your professionalism on every level was exemplary. We especially appreciated your regular communication with us, keeping us informed as to what was happening, not only with our own house, but with the properties for sale in our neighborhood and throughout Tarrant County. We appreciated that so many times you went beyond the call of duty, giving generously of your time to assist us. There are more specifics in that regard than I can list here but among them: (1) Bringing a designer to our home to help with staging and suggest cosmetic changes; (2)Personally handling open houses and contacting other agents to view our home; (3) Endlessly handling with tact and wisdom the sticky situations of negotiation that were present throughout the listing, but particularly in the final sale of the house and (4) suggesting the home warranty policy which assisted in repairs that had to be negotiated in the final contract. We realize that all the services you provided for us may not be necessary in every listing. Our house had particular challenges that you may not face in other properties. The important thing we experienced in working with you is that you are a person who will go the extra mile to meet whatever circumstance is presented. For that reason, we have recommended you as an agent to anyone we know who needs to sell their home, and we will continue to do so in the future. All the best.
I cannot begin to express how much Ruth Story has helped us with our move into our beautiful home. She was so informed about all that we had to do -- and really guided us through the process. As we got closer to making an offer on a house, she was there to look through it with us and make suggestions that allowed us to more clearly see what we really wanted. And then, she was right there as we worked to make certain that the buyer for our old house was in line with the process so that we could purchase our new home. I know that we could not have done this without her help. She truly knows what she is doing and does it in a kind and supportive way. Thank you, Ruth !!!
Ruth enjoys what she does, and this reflects in the excellent service she provides. Her real estate experience, ability to listen, and market savvy, will deliver what you need.
We can't recommend Ruth enough as a real estate agent. We first contacted Ruth to assist us with searching for a new home because she was a long time friend and someone we knew to be a person of honesty and integrity. We quickly discovered that she also has a high level of knowledge in her field and great professionalism with clients and colleagues.
She approached buying and selling homes for us during an unprecedented time in real estate history with great patience, prudence and creativity. We were confident that she always had our family's best interest in mind. Ruth is a true treasure!
Ruth is extremely responsive and very easy to talk to. She knows the market and how to get the best buy possible. She gets the job done very well and is really enjoyable to work with. We have bought two houses with Ruth, and sold two as well.
I really can't say enough about how pleased we are with the purchase- we are the type of couple who normally doesn't use realtors (we are just the 'by owner' types)- but since meeting you, we will call you in the future when we need real estate assistance (and we will recommend you to friends who ask). Your calm, kind, sincere way was very appealing to us.
Thanks for everything!
Ruth Story receives the "Best in Client Satisfaction" award from the Fort Worth Business Press as chosen by their readers and real estate industry peers.
Doing business with Ruth Story is a rare and delightful pleasure. She genuinely cares for people. Her enthusiasm for her work and the people she is working with is truly superlative. I can't imagine anyone I would trust more.
The best combination of friendly, bright and honest you'll find!
Ruth was truly amazing! She was there every step of the way, from the beginning to the closing table. Highly recommended if you are looking to sell or buy!
It was a pleasure to work with Ruth and have a "friction-free" experience.
Excellent Marketing! It was a postcard from Ruth regarding recent sales that motivated us to contact her. Her communication and sense of urgency is outstanding. Ruth has expert knowledge of market conditions, trending home values, and assessment of potential of property, along with perfect follow-through. She exceeded expectations in every regard.
Ruth is one of the most caring, trustworthy people I know. She is dedicated to her family, yet still finds time for a great deal of involvement in the community. You could not find a better person to assist you with selling your home, or finding a new one.
Being from out of state, we really appreciated all of Ruth's knowledge and insight about the different Fort Worth neighborhoods. She was able to take our wish list and find us the perfect home. We couldn't be happier!
