We are relocating to the area from New York state. Becky insured that our home purchase in South Carolina was very smooth, going above and beyond to give us peace of mind. She not only spent countless hours previewing the houses we were interested in, but, made sure we saw plenty of option so we could be sure we were getting the best home possible. Once we made our decision, Becky handled the negotiations beautifully and then continued to be our "eyes" on the scene as we went thru the purchase process from afar.

Becky is an outstanding Realtor who went out of her way for more than a year to help my wife and I find the "perfect" house for us. She was incredibly well organized, maximizing the time we spent with her. Her knowledge of the area was great and her advice invaluable! She made our searches fun and from the time we chose the house until the closing she was there to help us at every phase which was especially important, since we were living out of the state. I would I would give her my highest recommendation and anyone looking for a home in western South Carolina and the Lake Keowee area should seek her out!
Rich and Cynthia Barker
Becky was very thorough and helpful to us in our house search. Once we decided on a house, she was a key source of information. Her knowledge of the area and different service providers was invaluable in assisting our move.
Karen and Dan Holman
Becky was very patient with us, her picky and fickle clients. She worked us through 3 house offers, an offer rejection, a failed house inspection, and our changing criteria. She was knowledgeable and fun!

About six months ago my husband and I decided we wanted to relocate to beautiful Keowee Key, in Salem South Carolina. We quickly sold our home in South Florida and moved into a short term rental in Keowee Key to begin our new home search. Since we did not know anyone in the area, it was imperative we find a Realtor with extensive knowledge about Keowee Key and the area. At our initial meeting, we were immediately impressed with Becky Rutkiewic with Bob Hill Realty and decided to work with her to find our new dream home. Becky demonstrated professionalism throughout our home search process. She understood everything we were looking for. Becky was quick to respond to our inquiries and was very flexible with scheduling viewings - sometimes on short notice. Her friendly demeanor coupled with her acute knowledge of all details around negotiating and purchasing a home were invaluable throughout our process. She was a great asset in helping us find our new home. We would definitely recommend her services to anyone who wants to buy, sell or lease a home. She is very professional, trustworthy and knowledgeable.
In my lifetime experience with about 20 real estate transactions Becky is the unquestionably the best agent that I have ever worked with. I was particularly impressed with her responsiveness and with her willingness to get answers to questions that were not directly related to the transaction, but would have been hard for me to obtain.

Becky is both peasant and highly professional to work with! She is very organized, helpful in giving productive guidance on the Lake Keowee area (very knowlegeable regarding lot locations, water views/depth, quality assessments of builders). Becky is an experienced professional that pays attention to the details and keeps you abreast of all you need to do and know throughout the buying process!

Becky is very knowledgeable of Lake Keowee properties and took time to understand what my husband and I were looking for. She offered lots of suggestions, gave good counsel and was sensitive to our cues. We looked at everything from new, to lots to existing homes and ultimately bought the ideal home for ourselves... We were out of state buyers and she went above and beyond to make our deal go through smoothly, connected us with a great lender and closing attorney. Thoroughly recommend her!
Becky provided invaluable professional expertise in the selling of my home . In a situation where I was out of state, Becky was my eyes and ears and quickly became my trusted rock in the many difficult and tricky situations that came up during the process. In addition , she has great warmth and a wonderful sense of humor that are fantastic qualities to possess during negotiations and road blocks that popped up often .. She demonstrated great flexibility and is proactive and accommodating to extraordinary needs and requests.. She sold my home in an expeditious manner... making the process as painless as possible.. I am tremendously grateful to her. I recommend her without the slightest reservation. Anyone who has the good fortune to have Becky for their realtor will have complete satisfaction..

We were "out of town" sellers and Becky went above and beyond taking care of the details and making arrangements to get the house ready to sell then help to close the deal and finally to handle all "things" to get to closing. We could not have been happier with Becky, her personal touch and her professionalism
If you are reading this, then you are looking for a Realtor. You need to look no further. I highly recommend Becky Rutkiewic. I was referred to Becky by someone I trust and I could not be happier with the outcome. Becky is a total professional who shepherded me through the sale of my Mother’s home. I live out of state, so I was worried about trying to handle so many details long distance. But Becky stayed on top of everything, kept me in the loop at every turn, and often went above and beyond my expectations to make everything run smoothly. She helped me stay calm and upbeat through a process that could have otherwise been frustrating. I can’t say enough about how great it was to work with her. And I am certain you will have a similar experience.
Becky did an excellent job marketing our house and we were under contract in less than two weeks. She always got back to us promptly with answers to our questions and handled herself in a professional manner.

We contacted Becky based on recommendations of previous buyers and sellers found on an internet website. I planned to interview several realtors, but after the first contact by phone, we were easily convinced that Becky was the person to help us find our retirement home. She asked what we wanted in a home and listened to our wants and needs. Becky's honesty and integrity was evident and acted in our best interest. Becky was very thorough when explaining complicated real estate terms and simplified the buying process. We were extremely pleased with the initiative she displayed in making arrangements with the inspector, structural engineers, plumbers and other specialists. Becky was always proactive and deliberate in her actions. Her persistence in getting all of the details ironed out gave us great confidence and comfort in moving to a new place. Becky's mortgage lending and attorney team were also very helpful and professional. Becky made us feel like we were long term friends and welcomed us with open arms and heart to our new community. We sincerely appreciate everything she has done for us and will never forget her magnetic personality. We consider Becky to be our dear friend and look forward to many great years here at Keowee Key

Becky was outstanding. Always very responsive to our many questions. 100% knowledgeable of everything in the process. We were in good hands the entire time.
Rod and Carla Ely-Buyer 2 Safe Haven
We live in South West Florida and were interested in a place to spend our summers in a community similar to what we have in Florida (gated community with Tennis, golf, boating, etc.). Becky listened to all our interests and found us the perfect house, we saw a lot of nice places on the first day we met and found our perfect home on our second pass through the neighborhood. Becky went above and beyond our expectations to make everything flow well for the pre-closing steps through our move in after closing given we were from out of town. She is a wonderful person who we connected with immediately and will continue to have a long term friendship with
Alicia Zmuda--Seller 4 Breakers Ct
Becky is an exceptional real estate professional. She is informed, responsive and provided resources in a number of areas. I will definitely refer clients and friends to Becky and we will certainly look forward to working with her again personally.

Becky and her partner, Sue Pulliam, started with an in depth market analysis, which drove an aggressive initial pricing strategy. My Mother's house needed updating, but had good bones and was well-maintained. I was at a disadvantage, living 850-miles north and not knowing much about the market. Whether I needed a contractor, handyman, or estate auctioneer, Becky & Sue were quick to recommend true professionals. They also excel at marketing skills, digital technology, providing thoughtful opinions on touchy subjects: staging, price-reductions, price-negotiation. We went to contract in mid December with the family that bought the house, but also had earnest money from a back-up offer. I relied especially heavily on Becky & Sue during the weeks before the Jan 25 closing (access for repairs, tests, measurements). Two Thumbs Up!
