Charleston Real Estate Professional
I take my role as a trusted advisor very seriously & enjoy the long standing friendships that often follow. A closing is the beginning of a relationship, not the end.
Local Knowledge, Global Perspective

Ruthie could not have made the process of selling our home from afar (we moved to Michigan from Charleston) smoother or easier! She is AMAZING. Ruthie handled EVERYTHING and our house was under contract in 36 hours from the time it went live as an active listing. We were so happy with Ruthie every step of the way and we are so grateful to her for all her hard work to get our home sold fast and with an offer we were so pleased with. My only regret is that we did not use Ruthie when we first moved to Charleston and bought our home. I could not recommend her enough. Her knowledge of the market and of Charleston is unparalleled. My first call will be to Ruthie when we hopefully move back to Charleston in the near future!E. Mostellar
Ruthie is one of 7 realtors I've worked with over the past 15 years, and she is by far the most knowledgable and efficient of them all. She listed my home for more than I thought it was worth and had it under contract for asking price within hours. I wouldn't hesitate to choose work with her again as a seller *or* a buyer!T. Ingram
Ruthie is extremely dedicated, fast, knowledgeable, honest and easy to work with. My husband and I had only been to Charleston a handful of times before we decided to purchase a home, so she had her work cut out for her. Ruthie spent multiple full weekends driving us around, showing us a variety of options within our budget and giving us insight into different areas, neighborhoods, etc. All in all she showed us about 50 homes, and when it was time to submit an offer, she walked us through everything, negotiated with the seller, and made the process of an out of state home purchase and move as pain free as possible. We are so very grateful that we found Ruthie and that she helped us buy our first home! She gave us the confidence we needed to make a solid choice, and we really could not have done it without her!J. Piccione
I have bought and sold many properties in the last decade, and Ruthie is by far the most knowledgeable agent I’ve ever had. First of all, Ruthie and her family roots go back hundreds of years. There is no one better to explain the intricacies of the micro markets around Charleston and the greater Charleston area. She’s seen it all, and knows the history and back story of the homes and neighborhoods. Second, Ruthie is in call 24/7, always with the most upbeat and conscientious attitude. She is always there to answer questions and give moral support during the process, which can be very stressful. She’s a joy to be around! Last, she’s a great advocate and skilled negotiator who can get a deal done. I cannot recommend Ruthie strongly enough!S. Ejabat
