About Ruth Krishnan



Ruth Krishnan SF Realtor Headshot - Print-2

Ruth is responsible for the Krishnan Team’s growth and for maintaining a company culture that ensures that each team member is motivated and inspired to do their best for themselves and our clients every day.

Ruth loves providing the best quality and highest touch service for both her buyers and her sellers. She takes pride in providing a seamless and stress-free experience for everyone involved. Handling all negotiations on seller listings as well for buyers, Ruth is the team’s lead negotiator and the lead contact for agents who have questions about listings or disclosures.

Having a team allows Ruth to think strategically and frees up her time for buyer showings and open houses. Ruth tours available listings every week so that she always stays on top of pricing, trends, and changes in available housing inventory. This practice is what allows her to accurately price and market listings and help buyers write competitive offers. Ruth makes it a point to tour with her buyers so they fully understand market review disclosures and the details of the homes they are considering. She also reviews each offer so that both buyers and sellers feel confident and well cared for throughout the sales process.

Because learning and growing personally and professionally makes her work something she truly loves, Ruth has mastermind-style relationships with top agents and several business coaches both in and outside of her market. Deep relationships with her peers make it easy to get buyers the information that they need to purchase a home quickly and also ensures she is in the know for off market listings.

In addition to her commitment to her clientele, Ruth is devoted to her community, humanitarian projects, and the arts. Each year, she contributes over 5% of her income to a wide range of non-profit organizations.

Through volunteer efforts—as well as charitable donations—I, along with my colleagues at Compass, 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.
