"We recommend The Ruiz Group to anyone looking for property in the Monterey area. In our case The Ruiz Group was responsive whenever we had inquiries as the building was completed (and for a complex project there were a lot of inquiries). They kept us informed as the project progressed, coordinated inspections and appraisals to make sure closing would happen on the scheduled date, and their managing the process so well made our purchase as smooth as possible."

"I would highly recommend Nicole Ushakoff to anyone looking for a realtor on the Monterey Peninsula. We recently completed our fourth real estate transaction with her. She is so knowledgeable and professional. With Nicole, you always feel she has your best interest in mind and will go to bat for you in every way. I wouldn't consider using anyone else."

"ATTENTION TO EVERYONE FROM MONTEREY COUNTY- If you ever need a real estate agent to help you with buying or selling, you MUST contact the Ruiz Group especially Pete. Pete helped us with listing our property in Pebble Beach. His team went above and beyond in terms of marketing the property, doing open houses and so on. Pete was also VERY responsive to all of our questions and concerns and reassured us that things were going to work out when times were tough. This man literally went above and beyond in making sure the job got done. Thank you for all your hard work!"

"Highly recommend Zach to anyone looking for a real estate professional on the peninsula. He was able to sell our house very quickly and above list price. Zach possesses a thorough knowledge of the market/industry, coupled with a warm & personable demeanor. He provided excellent advice as we navigated the process and his marketing strategy really paid off! Throughout the experience he was resourceful, enthusiastic and most importantly, patient. He helped make a potentially stressful time more comfortable for all of our household."

"After having the house listed with several other brokers, for several years, and not having had one offer I decided to hire Pete Ruiz. Using his interior design skills, he pointed out a few things to adjust and the house sold within a month."

"Adam has been very helpful and professional since I worked with him in the beginning. He always makes himself available almost immediately whenever I have questions or need his help. However, he is not the type of agent who is pushy with clients. So I feel comfortable having him as my agent. Adam is trustworthy, responsible, and sincere in his profession. I highly recommend him if you need help in the real estate business!"

"I highly recommend Adam Bomarito as a prime real estate agent. He was kind enough to show me some beautiful properties in Pebble Beach. I appreciated how timely he was for every meeting we had and during every showing he was so thorough in explaining and showing me the features of the home. He also was incredibly kind and attentive and made me feel very comfortable working with him. He also seemed quite experienced in the real estate field and I was comforted by that. In addition, whenever I would email him or contact him he was very prompt with responding which is another quality I appreciated about him. I will definitely be recommending him to friends of mine!"

"If you are looking for a real estate agent in the Monterey County area look no further! My husband and I were first time home buyers, and started the process very slowly and cautiously. We met Nicole about a year and a half before we purchased our home , and she stuck by us the entire time, all along knowing we weren’t really ready when we first started looking. She is patient, not the least bit pushy, knows the ins and outs of basically all real estate in the area; and is personable, kind and honest. She responded to texts, emails, and phone calls within minutes - patiently answering any question, no matter how insignificant it seemed at the time, when we did start the home buying process. I will not hesitate to recommend her to anyone I meet looking to purchase a home in the area!"

"Told you I'd be more then happy to get on here and write a review of my experience with you and your team. I was very thankful to meet you at the Wounded Warrior Charity event last year. While I had high expectations, you continually would exceed them. I've worked with 12 different Realtors in the past 25 years and I can confidently say that you're the best yet. I'm looking forward to continually working with you in finding the right home now that my family is in the area. Thanks again and talk to you soon!"

"Pete is a consummate professional. He was quick to respond to my inquiry and very knowledgable and precise with his words. He has the experience to relate to your circumstances and is calculated in his ability to help solve your real estate needs. He forecasted the process for me and it went down almost exactly has he said it would. He also has a network in which he can refer and reach in that provides a complete service to his clientele."

"Responsive and professional. I contacted Pete after being referred by a friend and I'm glad I did. He was always available for me to contact and had the answer to each and all of my questions. Thanks to Pete I was able to get in a position to now be buying this year. Looking forward to continuing the work with you and I'm very thankful for all the help, guidance and patience you've shown with me."

"I don't normally do reviews but I do feel compelled to leave one for Pete. Not writing one I think is a disservice to the highest quality professionalism I've been seen from a Real Estate team. After being reassigned from outside the country, my wife and I were quite fearful about entering the real estate market in an entirely new country. After searching through multiple sites, it was clear the top choice in the area was Pete Ruiz (as evident by his reviews). Going in with already sky-high expectations, Pete continued to deliver above and beyond expectations. While we wait for the sale of our home in Auckland (too bad we couldn't use Pete for this sale!), Pete has been instrumental in finding us temporary living until we finish our last real estate transaction. In short, Pete is a godsend and if you're buying or selling in his area, he's the top choice."

"Pete and his team were a fantastic choice for our family. Looking for the right vacation home in Monterey was quite difficult since we've only vacationed there and not lived there as residents. Pete was always punctual, informative and most importantly says what he does and does what he says. While our search will continue into the next year, he's treated us just as well as someone who's getting ready to close on their home purchase today. Go with Pete, you won't be disappointed."

"Extremely impressed with Adam Bomarito's ability to take my vision of what kind of style home I am looking for and truly deliver. His knowledge on the area is unbeatable. I have gone through a few agents in the past, but I have never came across someone who makes me feel as comfortable as he does without putting any pressure. I read the other reviews before contacting Adam, and these other folks are not kidding when they say how personable and attentive he is. He goes over and beyond and makes himself available to you 24/7.

"Genuinely appreciate the time, attention, and dependability he provided."

"I recommend Adam - he is incredibly professional, extremely efficient and responsive, and overall a joy to work with. He took extra care with my family and even played role of playmate to my young kids. If I ever needed anything during the long process of house hunting and buying, I never hesitated to contact Adam as he was always available, friendly and helpful."
