Ruthie Lynah Whitlow
Savannah Real Estate Professional
My family roots go back six generations in Savannah, all the way back to the Revolutionary War. From spending my childhood summers at the Backriver of Tybee Island, to growing up with my four siblings in Ardsley Park, to my early years providing official walking tours of the beautiful squares of the Historic District; my lifetime of experience with this wonderful place has given me intimate knowledge of the treasures that abound in my home city and surrounding areas. My endless appreciation of Savannah’s charm and history give me an enthusiasm and passion I carry into my work as a Realtor with Daniel Ravenel Sotheby’s International Realty. My creative vision and appreciation for the architectural details found throughout Savannah’s varied homes help guide my clients toward the perfect home. I have a keen eye for form and function and use those skills to stage homes for seller clients when needed. By featuring a home’s unique character through my home-staging service, I position the property to sell quickly and for the highest price. I pride myself on connecting with the people who choose me as their Realtor, so I can exceed their expectations and give them the best possible experience. My background in sales has given me the foundation upon which I have built a strong real estate business with proven results. I have a robust client base thanks to the exceptional service I provide. When I’m not with clients, I enjoy boating with my husband, getting together with my wine club and traveling. Our three children are all young adults with their own lives but we love having family dinners whenever they are back home.
Ruthie was a miracle for us. We came looking to buy a home in Savannah in 2021 and had trouble with the first few realtors we tried to work with. We were impressed with her deft and insightful negotiations for a relative, so we asked if she could help us find a house. She worked tirelessly to find a house that fit both our imagination and our budget, even in a tough market. Nevertheless, she was always very upfront and honest about what the reality of the market and our situation was. When that perfect house finally popped up, she worked endlessly to ensure that if we wanted it, we would get it. This is no small feat in such a competitive market. She told us exactly what we needed to do to get the house, but also made sure that we got the best deal we could in those circumstances. That is a difficult and narrow road to travel, but she guided us perfectly. Even after the closing, she went truly above and beyond to make certain that we were comfortable with our purchase and satisfied with the recommendations she made. Thank you, Ruthie, for getting us the perfect house even in the most adverse of market conditions. We literally could not have done this without you.Kris M.
