Honest. Savvy. Strong financial acumen. Fierce negotiator. Detail-oriented. These are just a few words clients and business associates have used to describe Ruth when asked what it’s like to work with her.  But don’t just trust their words.  Look at the numbers, awards and her stats:  
  • Over $11 million a year individual sales, doubling her production each year since she began her career.  
  • Consistently receives Top Producer awards among the finest realtors at Heritage Texas Properties.
  • Contracted with luxury builders and a real estate investment groups for all of their real estate transactions and listings.
  • Consistently represents investment bankers, physicians, well-funded investors and high net-worth individuals throughout Houston’s most prestigious luxury neighborhoods:  The Heights, Oak Forest, Memorial, The Woodlands, Briagrove
  • Part of the Houston Business Journal’s Top Luxury Real Estate Team, Carruthers Real Estate Group
 
But behind the awards and recognition; beyond the recommendations and the results, you will find a highly skilled, knowable professional who puts clients’ financial and real estate interests at the forefront of all decisions.  To do that requires an in-depth knowledge of real estate contracts and language, negotiation skills, construction quality and industry, the use of integrated marketing platforms, insight into resale potential, a great education and most off all - great mentors.  Ruth learned from the best, Kristie Carruthers, who mentored her in every area of real estate including the importance of design and its influence on gaining premium pricing - all of these unique skills are rare in today’s crowded realtor marketplace. 
 
“She made us feel valued.”  
“She was able to communicate clearly.”  
"Always available.” 
“Knowledgeable and reachable.” 
“A pleasure to work with.”  
“Very patient with us.”  
 
In between taking care of her clients, caring for her two children and managing her career, Ruth is actively involved in the Houston Rodeo, Junior League, Small Steps Nurturing Center, and The Kenworthy School in The Heights.  She is married and loves to go to the lake with family, travel, jog in local parks and try new "hip" restaurants. 

Loved working with Ruth and her team! She was extremely knowledgeable and helped us every step of the way. We would definitely work with her again!!

I could not recommend Ruth more. She is extremely professional, knowledgeable about the area and process, always responsive, and an overall great person to work with. She quickly helped us learn the area and neighborhoods, and negotiated effectively on our behalf. Her organizational skills result in a smooth process with no questions or concerns left unanswered. I would recommend Ruth to anyone looking to buy or sell within the Houston area and hope to work with her again in the future!

Ruth went above and beyond our expectations! She makes an effort to be available 24/7 and goes out of her way to make you feel at ease even for questions or concerns you may feel silly for having. Ruth is very knowledgeable on the Houston market and her insight was extremely valuable to us throughout this process. She is always willing to explain what happens at each turn and make you feel comfortable every step of the way. Buying and selling a home can be really stressful, but Ruth does everything she can to make the process as painless as possible. We can’t say enough good things about her and her team!! Highly recommend!!

We have nothing but wonderful things to say about Ruth! She was very patient with us from the moment we decided to begin our for our first home through the closing process. Ruth's knowledge of the housing market, neighborhoods and homes that we looked out was very helpful in our decision process. I know that when it is time (hopefully not anytime in the near future) to look for our next home, we will return to Ruth as we value her opinions, information and communication skills! Thank you very much.

This is our 3rd time buying and selling with Ruth. You will never have a realtor that cares for her clients like she does. During your time, you will be her number one priority. She will make every decision with your best interest in mind. During each move, we are always reminded about the outstanding communication skills that Ruth has. She is always available and prompt with her responses. During this home search, she had her second child, and was sending us closing documentation within 8 hours of giving birth. Ruth is truly the best in the business.

Ruth was absolutely wonderful! My husband and I were first time home buyers and Ruth was so patient with us. She took extra time at each step to fully explain the process to us and answer any and all questions we had. She made herself available by phone or email the entire time and regularly checked in if she hadn't heard from us. It was very obvious from the start that Ruth is incredibly knowledgeable and skilled in her career so it was easy to trust her advice when things got complicated. We don't plan on moving anytime soon but I know that the next time we are house hunting, we won't call anyone but Ruth.

I highly recomend Ruth! She will work extremely hard for you, has in depth market knowledge, and is a great negotiator. She informed me throughout the process and made it as stressfree as possible. She is willing to go above and beyond for her clients. Although she is family I she will work as hard for you as she did for me. A 5-star review doesn't do justice to how great she is at what she does!

Ruth Carruthers with Carruthers & Company hands down the best and hardest working group of people that my will work for you. Ruth is very attentive and listens to your needs and wants for that special home that you're looking for. Between my wife and I, we had a pretty extensive list of options that we were looking for in our first home and those needs were met every time when told to Ruth Carruthers. Ruth was always available and ready to show us a home and the best part about that was that Ruth was willing to show a house later in the day so that my wife and I could both be there, since we both very different schedules. Ruth always gave her opinion which I valued since she knew the markets so well. Once we found the house that we were going to purchase Ruth was quick to set a viewing date/time and get the process started. During the Purchase process Ruth stayed in constant contact with us, letting us know what to expect and when to have things ready for the mortgage company there was never a guessing game or waiting game with Ruth, she made sure to keep us in the loop on everything. Another value that I so much appreciated was that Ruth would explain everything in detail and left no questions unanswered, and if she didn't have the answer to a question she would seek out that answer and get that information to ASAP usually within the hour. My wife and I guarantee that if you go with Ruth Carruthers and Carruthers & Co you wont be disappointed.

Our experience with Ruth was impeccable before, during, and after the sale of our home. She was flexible with our schedules, dependable with paperwork, and reliable when questions were raised. She is extremely knowledgeable about the entire northern Houston region. During the house hunting adventure she was happy to introduce us to the area and inform us of nearby amenities. When we were ready to make an offer, she was efficient with the necessary paperwork. Ruth ultimately gave us a tip, which the selling realtor said was the deciding factor on our offer. She was in constant contact with us during the 6 weeks between our offer and closing. She attended our inspection and gave advice from the results. After the sale, Ruth has stayed in contact, not just to congratulate us, but to ensure we are settling, and answer any questions. From day 1, Ruth made us feel comfortable and confident that we would find the home of our dreams, and we did.

I had a great experience with Ruth. She was very knowledgeable about the market, especially in the neighborhoods we were looking, and patient with me, when I could tell I was being a difficult client. She advised me from the very beginning of the process, through the negotiation of my contract and even after that. I would recommend her to anybody looking to buy or rent a place to live.

Ruth Caruthers gave us the best home buying experience we could ask for! As first time home buyers, the whole home buying process was extremely new for us and we had no idea everything that was involved. Ruth was able to provide us with all the information we needed all while making us feel extremely comfortable. She gave us honest and knowledgeable feedback to help guide us to our perfect home! We are absolutely in love with the home Ruth helped us choose and will definitely use her in the future.
