Why Work With Us?
Here's what our satisfied customers are saying about us:
My husband and I have been clients of Ruffner Real Estate for years. They have a knowledge of Exeter and the surrounding communities that is invaluable when buying or selling property. Working with a family owned business is a pleasure, they can make decisions without checking with the corporate office. Their level of professionalism is unsurpassed. We look forward to working with Ruffner Real Estate for years to come.
I have dealt with Florence on various residential as well as commercial sales and have found her and members of her staff to be nothing but professional and extremely knowledgable about the real estate market in the greater Portsmouth area. Her objective is not "making the sale" but ensuring the customer is fully satisfied. I highly recommend Florence and her team.

Florence is the best!
At the time, we were looking for the perfect rental until we were ready to buy. Scott was more than willing to take his time and show us numerous properties. There was no rush and no pressure. Because of his attention to us, even with a rental, we will surely use him as our agent when we are ready to buy our perfect home. Not soon after, we learned a couple of friends had purchased their home through Ruffner Real Estate. Knowing how particular their taste is and their desire for a move-in-ready house, I was amazed at how beautiful their home was, in the right location, and within their budget. Yet another reason I will feel confident using Scott, knowing he has an experienced handle on the market.

I worked with Scott when I moved back to the Seacoast area in 2004. I was initially reluctant to buy knowing that there was a strong chance I would be moving again within a few years. Scott helped me find the perfect condo, and was also very helpful in leveraging his network of vendors to help me find good values and quality work in several upgrades I had done. Scott then sold it for me two years later for a nice profit. I highly recommend Scott and Ruffner Real Estate in general.
Florence not only worked tirelessly--with her trademark humor and imagination--to help us find the house we wanted in Exeter (and we had quite the list of needs)....she is also an emblem of the warmth and appeal of living in Seacoast New Hampshire. If you want to know the heart of the community, it's impossible to imagine a better guide than Florence.

It has been an absolute pleasure to work with Florence Ruffner on the purchase of two properties in Exeter. Since we were new to the area, Florence was an invaluable resource for all kinds of things -- not just details pertaining to the transaction. But perhaps her best quality is that she is honest and direct and will tell you the truth about the situation even if it's not exactly what you want to hear; she gives excellent business advice. I highly recommend her services!
I look for 3 things from my realtor; responsive, knowledgeable, and professional. Florence and her team have that and then some. I've both bought and sold with Florence and was completely satisfied every time. Florence is my realtor for life.
While planning a move from the South Shore in Mass to NH, I was introduced to Mollie Ruffner. Mollie is professional, knowledgeable, well-connected around town, and pleasant to work with. She really listened and set up showings of all the places she knew that I would like. She introduced me to a new development in Exeter and I found my dream home. She is surrounded by the best people at Ruffner Real Estate. I would recommend them 100%.
Mollie Ruffner was recommended to me by an old friend as I was preparing to return to the east coast after many years away. I was seeking office space for my medical practice. When properties came on the market, her automatic system that incorporated my desires, would send me email updates. In addition, she kept herself aware of what the new listings were. When we would view properties, Mollie was 100% focused on my desires and never on simply making a sale. She was patient, calm, honest and clear, even when I was struggling with the best choice. In the end, I bought the property that suited my needs, my budget and my desires. The process was virtually free of stress, a rarity in the real estate industry.
