Real Estate Seminar: Buying A Home In San Francisco

Offer your team the opportunity to build wealth and put down roots in the community in which they live.


Buying a home in San Francisco can be frustrating, complicated and overwhelming – but it doesn’t have to be. We’re teaming up with local organizations like yours to help educate your team about the local real estate market, how to build wealth through real estate and answer some of the most frequently asked questions.
This is an informational seminar and not a sales pitch. We believe that educating our community on real estate, with a no-pressure approach, is a win-win for companies, their employees and our local communities.

“Ruth gave a presentation to The Personal Assistant Network recently, and I was impressed with her enthusiasm and ability to communicate information in a clear and concise manner. Real estate purchases can be daunting, especially in the Bay Area, and Ruth demystifies the process. The two hours whizzed by and our members walked away with solid data and resources to reference – no sales pitch here, just education from an engaging teacher.”
-Gwyn Waters, The Personal Assistant Network


What you’ll learn from one of San Francisco’s top real estate agents:


  • Are we in a bubble?
  • Where are we in the cycle?
  • How do you win in a multiple offer situation?
  • For current homeowners, what is the best way to transition to a new property?

  • When is a good time to buy or sell?
  • How do you hire an experienced Realtor?
  • Does cash matter? Do I get a better deal by using cash?
  • How do changes in interest rates affect your purchasing power?

“Ruth is a poised and accomplished speaker who I have seen present to groups on several occasions. She is engaging, honest and to-the-point. Ruth is able to pull from Paragon’s proprietary research data to give a broad overview of what’s actually going on in the market so that the attendees leave with a fact-based understanding of home buying and selling in the Bay Area. Additionally, Ruth relies on her years of experience to bring real stories of clients’ challenges and successes to her presentations which balance the statistics and make for a memorable event.”
-Sarah Bashford, Bashford Designs


Meet Ruth

I’ve lived in the San Francisco Bay Area for the last 17 years, and I simply adore it. Before I became a real estate agent, I was an interior designer running my own firm. As a business owner and employer I understand the importance of providing your employees access to strong resources and helping them put down roots in the communities in which they live and work.I pride myself on delivering results for my clients and exceeding their expectations. I am extremely proud to be ranked in the top 10 out of over 4900 agents in San Francisco with over $300M in sales. Recently I was ranked #158 out of 1.5M agents nationwide by WSJ Real Trends. For buyers, 86% of the time I get my clients into contract on their first or second offer. For sellers, we devise creative ways to prepare and market your home for sale. Currently, our average list-to-sale price is 117% versus the 107% city average.

Philanthropy and community involvement are very important to me. I am committed to giving 5% of my income each year to a wide variety of non-profit organizations.

When I am not working you can find me trying out new restaurants in the city. I love spending time with my husband and kids, exploring our city, traveling, hiking, biking, and hanging out with good friends.

We would love to be a resource for you and your team.
