"Outstanding experience. Ruth made the process easier and faster than I ever expected. I have sold two other homes and this was, by far, the best experience. Ruth is very knowledgeable, respectful, has great follow-through, and is a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend her! -Home seller in Jamaica Plain "

"Ruth helped us to both sell our current home for well above asking, and buy our dream home in Brookline. We could not have been happier with our experience - Ruth was professional, kind, fast, and full of the "back of the envelope" knowledge which makes all the difference when buying or selling a home. Ruth knew our local market inside and out, and I can say with confidence that she is the reason that we both sold our home for above asking price, and that the first offer we put in was accepted when we bought our new home. I highly recommend Ruth to anyone buying or selling in the area! -Home seller and buyer in Brookline "

"Ruth was able to help buy my condo and then sold it four years later. She walked me through everything since I was a first time home buyer for the condo, took care of everything for me for the selling. Ruth was professional and very knowledgeable for the neighborhoods she covers, and responsive through the entire process. -Home seller in Brookline "

About Ruth

Doesn’t this describe what you would want in an agent? “She made the process so transparent and easy to understand, reducing the stress associated with negotiations and issues that inevitably come up when buying or selling a home.” “Ruth worked endlessly to close the house in a very short aggressive timeline.” She “is highly organized,” “on top of everything,” “understood our expectations”…the compliments go on.

These are some of the glowing five-star reviews Ruth Malkin continually enjoys praising her expertise, sound advice and savvy negotiating. She has also received numerous awards for being a consistent top-producing real estate agent, and a top listing agent.

“I help people make great real estate decisions. Everyone has real estate in their life in some capacity, and for most, it’s the biggest financial commitment they will make – whether as homeowners or investors. I firmly believe people deserve phenomenal service; it’s their RIGHT, and it’s my mission to provide it and raise the bar.”

Ruth specializes in sales, listings, and working with buyers of homes and condos. She sells in urban and suburban areas in and around Boston including Brookline, Brighton, West Roxbury, Jamaica Plain and others. Having lived in Brighton where she still owns property, and as a current resident of West Roxbury, her knowledge is in-depth.

Licensed since 2002, Ruth has been active in real estate for years, taking time off to raise her two daughters. She holds Certified Residential Specialist and Certified International Property Specialist designations, and brings a unique perspective from an economics standpoint which sets her apart. Ruth was an economic analyst for the Commonwealth as a graduate student, while earning her MBA. She has a B.A. in Economics from University of Massachusetts in Amherst, and volunteers with the Residential Real Estate Council (RRC) on the national level.
