Add personality to your profile! Tell the community about yourself, your home, and your profession.

Raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, my affection for this community runs deep and is what compliments my knowledge of the local Real Estate market. That, coupled with over 15 years of comprehensive sales experience ranging from owning my own business, corporate sales & extensive experience in both residential and commercial real estate sales has enabled me to develop a client-centered philosophy & attention to detail that enhances every transaction. I am dedicated to providing top notch service to both Sellers and Buyers.

I am committed to providing a perfect blend of experience, knowledge & integrity to ensure favorable results for my clients. I am a trained negotiator and problem solver. Traditional values of hard work, honesty and personal commitment to excellence is the foundation of my success.

Given our current economic state I firmly believe in staying on top of market trends & being educated about the ever changing Real Estate climate. In an effort to do so, I have received the Short Sales and Foreclosure Resource (SFR) certification through the National Association of Realtors and am studying to receive an Internet Marketing Specialist Designation (IMSD) to keep up with the ever evolving landscape of technology. My background and experience enables me to think strategically, provide disciplined advice and execute on that advice to help clients achieve their Real Estate goals.

I graduated Magna Cum Laude from San Francisco State University with a degree in Radio & Television. I live on the Peninsula and enjoy spending my spare time teaching Sunday School at my local church and volunteering in the community I live & serve. I am a supporter of the Foster Care advocacy group, California Youth Connection, and serve on the PTA at my son's school. I particularly enjoy spending time with family & friends. My favorite pastime, however, is hanging out with my husband, Rob, and our high spirited, fun-loving son, Samuel.

Team reviews

Rica Ruiz and her team worked with our family to complete an estate sale. We appreciated Rica’s understanding and support through a difficult time. She was expedient and thorough in working with our probate attorney, such that the entire process was much simpler that we expected. The house was sold quickly and for more than the listing price. Many thanks for her assistance.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $650K in South San Francisco, CA.

As a real estate agent it was a blessing to have worked with an agent who took the time to listen, to here, to comfort and to make a stressful process a joy. There were many obstacles and challenges before my wife and I, but before we can even think of quitting Rica always reassured us that all will work out and to trust faith and Gods plan. We will always be in debt to Rica, she will always be a part of our family, where are so thankful to have work and met her. May God continue to bless her.

Thank you Rica for never giving up, for working so hard for us. Finding a hardworking, patient and honest Realtor is difficult,I am so thankful we found Rica! You can do no wrong by finding her too! She will find you your dream home!

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $825K in San Bruno, CA.

I find Rica Ruiz to have a high level of integrity; not only in business but in her everyday life. She is kind and patient and her knowledge of the real estate industry is amazing. We were selling our home on the peninsula and buying a home out of the bay area. She not only assisted us in selling our home for a better price than we expected, Rica also assisted us in getting questions answered about buying our new home. She knows the real estate industry, how it works and how it can work for you. She is a professional in every way. I highly recommend her and I would use her services again.  More Less
