Ruth Krishnan SF Realtor Headshot - Print-2

Before I go any further, let me introduce myself and my amazing team.

I’ve lived in the SF Bay area for the last 13 years, and I simply adore it. Before I became a real estate agent, I was an interior designer, running my own firm, so I have an eye for the details that matter most when you’re buying or selling. I see the potential of spaces in a unique way and, as a mother, I’m always thinking about how spaces can grow with you and your family.

I pride myself on delivering results for my clients and I am extremely proud my team is in the top 1% of real estate agents in the city. But it’s about so much more than just closing a deal for me; it’s personal. I’m highly invested in ensuring my clients have my undivided attention and get what they need. I carefully limit the number of clients I work with at a given time, and have the best support team in the business to help back me up.

When I’m not working, I’m always checking out new restaurants in the city, especially those where I have homes listed. I love spending time with my husband and kids, exploring our city, traveling, hiking, biking, and hanging out with good friends.



Real estate in San Francisco is as unique and unpredictable as the city itself, and that is what our team falls in love with, over and over. To us, a home is much more than four walls. It is where our lives happen. It is where we bring home our newborns, raise our kids, and live out our dreams. It is our purpose to commit to your dream.


We’ll always tell you the truth, even when it’s something you won’t want to hear.


In every negotiation, we’ll work tirelessly to get you what you want. Clients are often pleasantly surprised at the lengths we’ll go.


Buying or selling isn’t just about today. We’ll help you look at the big picture and show you how the decisions you make now will impact your future.


The SF market is unpredictable. We’ll come up with out of the box solutions to secure your deal.


No one-size-fits-all solutions here. We’ll craft a custom solution for every situation.


We’ll always work to make the process of buying or selling stress-free with clear and consistent communication.

``I honestly do not know where this woman finds her limitless energy and enthusiasm. I don't think I ever waited more than five minutes for a reply to an email, at any time of the day. Any question I asked was answered completely and honestly. She is a powerhouse.``

- Lorrie Corvin, San Francisco

Through volunteer efforts—as well as charitable donations—I, along with my colleagues at Compass Real Estate Group, actively support local organizations in their efforts to improve San Francisco and the living conditions of others. We donate a portion of each closed transaction to the Compass Community Fund, and have been doing so since our very first sale. We are also active in volunteering our time to help build homes for Habitat for Humanity.

From shelters to school arts programs, from food drives to counseling, Compass’s agents participate in the organizations that make a positive difference in our community.

Since 2004, the Compass Community Fund has provided over $725,000 in donations to over 100 local organizations.
