What our clients are saying  

Lilly was recommended to us by a couple people and believe you me she is definitely worth it. She is a wonderful, intelligent and very caring realtor and person. If you are buying or wanting to sell your home or property Lilly Ruiz is the #1 in our book and she will get it done for you!


~ Melanie & Keith

Lilly was amazing. She initially helped me purchase my home 5 years ago and helped me sell it 5 years later. She is now a friend and I will recommend her to anyone. :) Thank you for all your hard work!


~ Victoria

Not sure where to start. My wife searched online to find an agent from San Francisco online that could help us find a place in Vegas. Lilly came up on a google search and my wife emailed her, along with three other realtors that came up. Who replied first, Lilly! Lilly is attentive, caring, 'on it', and at the end of day part of our family in Vegas. She cares and is genuinely involved in the whole process, she knows what you need if that makes sense. We could never have bought a house 'sight unseen' per say, without a person like Lilly. She's is now our kids favorite auntie and lifelong family friend. She cares and will always be there to answer your emails, texts, or just pick you at the airport! No regrets, only praise for someone so amazing as a person and a professional... thank you Lilly!


~ Joe Bustamante

One thing I can't stand about Realtors is that they are never there when you need them. Lilly Ruiz is the complete opposite. Lilly is always there when you need her. Her communication is second to none. The most important thing with Lilly is that she LISTENS.


~ M. Angelo

Fantastic, If you want a wonderful realtor she is your best choice. You will not be disappointed! She is always responsive and doesn't ever leave you wondering about what your options are and answers any questions you may have. Lilly is the best, and will be there for you every step of the way.


~ Sharon

We were so fortuitous to find Lilly Ruiz after interviewing 6-7 agents. We were relocating cross country with a limited time-frame, which made it even more challenging. Before we traveled to Las Vegas Lilly took the time to talk with us to match us to the best neighborhood. Only due to Lilly's excellent knowledge and willingness to help we were able to find our dream home in 4 days and close in under 30 days. Everyone from the builders, inspectors and lenders enjoyed working with Lilly throughout our process. From now on we will only buy a house where Lilly is licensed.


~ Eva & Todd

Lilly Ruiz was very professional, honest, and diligent. Lilly made sure I was taken care of from the moment I met her in her conference room. If you want a realtor that will fight for you, Lilly Ruiz is the realtor you will want to have working night and day on your behalf. Thank you Lilly for everything


~ Andrea

Lily is an amazing realtor, she goes above and beyond to ensure that her clients are satisfied with the perfect property. I have purchased multiple properties with Lily as my realtor and she is always extremely professional and very knowledgeable of the real estate market. I appreciate all the help with any questions or concerns I may have had while purchasing a home. I couldn't ask for a better realtor to help with such a big purchase! Thank you so much Lily!


~ Shamina

I am a first time home buyer and Lilly was able to break down every step of the process and made it easily understandable. She was responsive to every question I had. And even after we closed and moved in she continued to help us. I highly recommend Lilly Ruiz. She's also skilled in the home buying process for Vets as well which is a huge plus in my book


~ David

My husband and I have been clients of Lilly’s for a few years now. She helped ya find our first rental together, then helped us find our first home we ever purchased, and just helped us sell our house. Our house sold very quick and she makes everything so easy and stress free. I have never seen anyone go above and beyond like Lilly does. She will drop anything and everything to answer questions, or be wherever you may need her to be. Lilly is extremely knowledable and gives her honest and truthful advice. I would never choose anyone as a realtor other than Lilly. She truly puts her heart into her business and is amazing at what she does!


~ Jadey

~ Kimberly

My experience with Lilly exceeded expectations. She went above and beyond to help me through out the entire process. Lilly was very well informed about the properties she shared with me and had pati ence beyond explaining while waiting for me to find a house I was satisfied with. Lilly genuinely cared about me and ensured I was well taken care of. I couldn't ask for a better realtor.


~ Zaida

~ Robert

Lilly is the most warm hearted person I ever worked with searching for my second house took longer than a year with getting approved and with all the cash buyers and investors in the area we kept our game face on and kept trying with all the time spent gas and money Lilly stayed very patient and professional the whole time.. this business relationship quickly turned into a friendship when we finally closed the deal of my dream home it was almost bitter sweet because I knew we wasn't going to be working together daily. but it was a fun experience. lilly is still the go to person for any questions I have about the market today or any comparables in the area


~ Quarshie

Lily made my first time home buying process a BREEZE! She is amazing and i don't think i could have made it with out her expertise! :)


~ victoria

Great realtor! She makes herself available at all times and always responds quickly.


~ Isabella

Lilly is such breeze to work with and always available for questions. She went above and beyond to get us in our house quickly. I can only recommend her and she is now once again helping our family with the sale of a home.
