Our #1 goal as your Realtor is to help you get the most money for your home while minimizing the stress and time it takes to sell it. We’ll give you a secret: it’s all about the details. During these times we are working hard to discover new and innovative ways to connect with our community online and over the phone to continue to close deals for our clients.
“When we hired Ruth it was pre-COVID-19 and we had a plan in place. We moved out, hired the stager, the painter, etc. When COVID-19 occurred, our original plan to get our home on the market needed to shift for the new environment we all found ourselves in. She was extremely communicative during a stressful time and was always able to put our minds at ease with her knowledge of the ever evolving market.
Ruth hit the nail on the head in terms of choosing the right moment for us to bring our home to market. Navigating our home sale through a very tricky time which included but wasn’t limited to; new ways of marketing the home, discussing different pricing strategies, and thinking outside of the box on how to get our home in front of potential buyers and their agents. Ruth has a wonderful and creative team which was an asset to us.
Once we hit the market, Ruth sold our home in one week at our listing price (this was our pricing strategy) during one of the most unpredictable economic times.
Overall, we could not be happier working with Ruth and her team. They did a wonderful job prepping our home, holding our hands during a difficult time, and knowing the perfect moment for it to hit the market. We can’t recommend them enough.”

As top-5 ranked real estate agents, we know exactly what it takes to get your home sold. Currently, our average list-to-sale price is 108.7% versus the city average of 105.6%. If you were selling your home for two million dollars that would mean that we would get you $174,000 over list price while most Realtors would only get you $112,000 over list price. That translates to a difference of $62,000 more in your pocket.
Our clients are often surprised by the level of creativity and commitment we bring to selling their home. With Ruth Krishnan’s years of experience as a designer, our team has unique insight into how to showcase your home’s full potential and generate the best market response with a competitive pricing strategy and customized marketing plan. See some of our recent before and after transformations.
Most agents pocket a bigger percentage of the commission. Not us. The Krishnan Team makes extensive investments in the right people and innovative marketing strategies that deliver phenomenal results for our clients. We are able to leverage a robust and effective online presence to find buyers. With a team and reach like this you are getting more attention and value than any other team in the business.
Philanthropy and community involvement are very important to me. We actively support local organizations in our efforts to improve San Francisco and the living conditions of others. I am committed to giving 5% of my income each year to a wide variety of local organizations and have been doing so since our very first sale.
IN 2020, WE CLOSED $128 MILLION IN REAL ESTATE SALES. WE’RE RANKED IN THE TOP 5 OUT OF OVER 5,000 SAN FRANCISCO REALTORS AND #65 SMALL AGENT TEAMS NATIONWIDE BY WSJ.
Last year, we managed to sell $128 million in sales and closed a total of 64 transactions. This level of activity helps us keep our finger on the pulse of what’s happening right now in the complex San Francisco market, especially as it ebbs and flows during the year.
While our team is extremely active, we firmly believe that customer experience comes first, which is why we carefully limit the number of clients we work with at any given time.
Rather than bringing on more business only for herself, during higher volume periods, Ruth partners with other Realtors to ensure the highest level of service. This team-driven approach means that we’re able to build strong relationships with our clients and put their needs first. The result? Our clients walk away satisfied with an exceptional experience.

“It was my first time buying and selling, and Ruth did a fantastic job educating me every step of the way.
Ruth was the point person on all of the upgrades and maintenance we had done to our home before it hit the market. We were impressed with her strategy for marketing the house and the results were obvious as we ended up with seven offers, including one that was 150k over our asking price.
You spend a lot of time with your agent, and Ruth is down-to-earth and easy to be with. To make the most of your money, you need to work with Ruth.”
