Sold a Single Family home in 2005 for approximately $425K in Hilton Head Island, SC.

Ruth has helped me buy three properties in less than ten years AND she has steered me away from a number of bad ideas.

She is smart, fun to work with and very savvy. High integrity.

Sold a Single Family home in 2011 in West Columbia, SC.

Ruth has sold us a new home and has helped us sell one of our homes. She is very proactive in helping her clients, personal and knowledgeable of the area. I would always use Ruth Parris in my real estate transactions.

Bought a home in 2007.

Ruth Parris is an awesome real estate agent. She is a person who really listens to you when you tell her what you are looking for, and doesn't stop until she finds exactly what you want. She also knows so much about the Hilton Head Community that she can anticipate what will make your life better and show you houses that will do that.

I have experience with both buying and selling a house with Ruth, as she helped me move up. She worked hard to get me the deals I needed. If I am ever in the market in Hilton Head again, I wouldn't think of going with anyone else.
