When helping buyers, Ruth starts by casting a  large net, showing buyers everything that is currently on the market in a variety of neighborhoods, what they can get for their price in each of them  and why some people really want to live there.  The buyer then chooses to cross off neighborhoods they don't like, and focus on certain areas that they like best.  Ruth takes each buyer to multiple properties and learns their taste so well that when she sees a property come up it's not unusual for her to just pick up the phone, call the client and tell them" I've found your home" . On multiple occasions the buyers have come to the home and bought it that very night.  A lot of this has to do with the fact that Ruth has shown them so many homes and helped them understand the market, they are prepared to step up and do what it takes to get the home of their dreams.

San Francisco is a very competitive market. It's very important that the agent representing you has connections, is trusted by their fellow agents and knows how to negotiate on your behalf. They also need to know the exact things that good listing agents look for in an offer.  There have been many instances in multiple-offer situations where  Ruth has managed to win her clients the home, even while not being the top offer.  Thorough preparation and effective offer presentations make this possible. 

Ruth is often told by her clients that they appreciate her attention to detail and they really trust her.  Putting her clients' needs above her own is her top priority and often what starts as a client relationship quickly turns into a lifelong friendship.

When representing sellers, Ruth has the best marketing plan in the business.  She will get you the highest possible price.  She is tech savvy, understanding that 80% of buyers start their search on line, and advertises her listings on over 500 websites.  She buys featured listing spots on Zillow, Trulia and  She works with her marketing team to design beautiful brochures to give at open houses and mails a brochure to all the neighbors along with an invitation to an evening preview party.  She has taken out targeted Facebook sites for listings and always does a property specific website.  All the pictures that are taken for marketing in brochures and MLS are done by a professional real estate photographer.   Ruth will diligently prepare your disclosure package making sure you understand everything in advance and costly litigation and renegotiations are avoided.  Ruth also has a list of trusted professionals from plumbers to roofers to help prepare the home. Her goal is that you don't have to lift a finger.

Ruth's background in Interior Design not only helps her clients visualize potential in homes but also helps guide the staging and property peroration process when bringing a home to market.

Ruth is a lifelong learner and takes two to four hours of training in her field each and every week.

Ruth graduated magna cum laude from Webster University with a degree in Business Management and emphases in Marketing. She has also taken several years of Interior Design courses at California Academy of Art and Canada College. As a new mother within a growing family, she values the importance of home to the quality of a life well lived.

Ruth aims to get you the highest possible price when selling and the lowest price when buying a home and she will stop at nothing to get you there.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $1.275M in Bernal Heights, San Francisco, CA.
Ruth Krishnan is outstanding. She brings a professional expertise to real estate sales that is remarkable. She recently listed and sold our home in SF. She knew the neighborhood, she understood the value in the home and she had the marketing plan that sold this home in a remarkable time frame. Throughout the process as a seller she provides constant feedback, has the resources to immediately fix problems - like urgent building repairs in my case venting problem with water heater. She works diligently in your behalf until closing. She provided a spreadsheet to the bank appraiser to support the sales price - an important assist in getting the home qualified. Ruth is ethical, direct and a great communicator. I have and will continue to recommend her to friends, family, and business associates- she is the best in SF!  MoreLess

Bought a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $1.025M in Van Ness - Civic Center, San Francisco, CA.
We are first time homebuyers and Ruth made the experience as painless as possible. She’s a rare person who combines bulldog like tenacity when working FOR her clients and honesty, openness and kindness when working WITH them. The other reviews are all right on – Ruth makes every client feel like they’re her only client and her number one priority. We looked at new condo construction around SF, but ended up deciding that we love the condo building we were renting a unit in and wanted to try and buy there. Using her creativity she initiated a letter writing campaign to the owners in the building and it worked! We bought the unit we wanted off market. Ruth is charming, warm, smart, efficient, effective, and just plain knows her stuff. Stop your realtor search now and just hire Ruth. You won’t regret it.  MoreLess

Bought a home in 2013.
Ruth was simply amazing! My wife and I started our journey of looking for homes in San Francisco in June of 2013. In a heated seller's market we had the pleasure to work with Ruth and she made the whole experience as enjoyable as can be. She is a great listener and truly got to know what we wanted. In the beginning of the process my wife and I were all over the board in terms of areas and type of properties. Between numerous meetings and convesations Ruth knew which properties/areas we would be happy with and didn't waste our time with properties that didn't fit our profile. She found us our dream home in July and we couldn't be happier.

I work in the Real Estate Industry on the Investment side and meet a lot of Residential Realtors. Ruth is definitely an elite Realtor as she flat out delivers and works her tail off to make sure you are an extremely happy client. I would 100% recommend her whether you are buying or listing your property.
