From the beginning, Ruth's class, style, expertise, experience and commitment to getting the job done shined orders of magnitude above the rest.

Ruth is a true professional and master of her field, she knows what she is doing and she knows how to get you top dollar.

Embrace her opinions and advice with an open and objective mindset. Listen to her guidance carefully and you will benefit tremendously.

You're not going to get a better realtor.

About Ruth
It’s more than just a job to me. I love the multi-facets of this business, meeting the challenges of my client’s needs, making a difference in people’s lives and building relationships. Striving for excellence is an attitude toward life for me, I first learned from my father who coached the American Olympic Figure Skating Team. His two gold medal winners taught me the mindset of focus and commitment needed to go for the gold.

The privilege of growing up on the Austrian ski slopes, leads to my passion for alpine touring and skiing. I often transfer that skill of confidence into life and business challenges with a can-do-attitude!

My husband Tom and my daughter Taeya give me the balance in my life. As an architect, my husband often lends valuable insights and advice on land developing, remodeling and construction. I have spent many years supporting my daughters riding passion as she competed nationally as a youth rider and then rode for California’s NCAA Div1 equestrian team and was awarded All-American. Taeya has now joined me as a valued team member. Having graduated with a business and marketing degree she adds fresh perspectives to new-age marketing campaigns.

We have always lived a lifestyle of waterfront or acreage properties, so that I can speak to the nuances of those lifestyles. I have a passion for architecture and interior design together with a deep understanding of aesthetic composition and construction to assist visualizing potential in homes.

Helping my clients, becoming their trusted navigator through the complexities of buying and selling, is what makes my business so rewarding.

When working with buyers I carefully listen and take the time to evaluate and prioritize their goals to find a home that meets their lifestyle vision. When working with sellers, I thrive on designing a marketing campaign with an impactful presentation to gain the highest dollar return for my clients. I’m a solution orientated advocate always looking to find creative solutions for my client’s needs. I’m genuinely committed to serving each client with sophisticated stellar service!

I’m excited to have aligned myself with a company that can help facilitate my goal to serve my clients with utmost professionalism. As a company, Compass Washington is comprised of the most experienced leading brokers, is consumer focused, that backs its brokers with marketing, technology and innovative ideas to elevate the client’s experience. I’m proud to be one of their founding brokers!
