My History: Experience You Can Trust

Having grown up in the Chicago area, Ruby was awestruck the first time she visited the scenic Columbia River Gorge. The natural beauty and wonder of the area combined with the high quality of life convinced her that this was where her family truly belonged. In 1979, Ruby relocated to the Columbia River Gorge with her husband, David.

Since then, Ruby has made a career putting roofs over people’s heads. Her broad background and experience in the nonprofit housing and community development industry ranges from new construction and management of multi-family rental housing to land acquisition, home repair, and the renovation of single-family homes for resale.

Ruby has extensive knowledge of financing, downpayment assistance and other programs available for first time home buyers. She has earned her Real Estate Broker's license in both Oregon and Washington.

Designations and Certificates:

The process of buying or selling your home can be both exciting and nerve-racking all at the same time. Ruby’s goal is to serve you as a trusted advisor throughout the process and to make the transaction flow as smoothly as possible. She wants to add value to not only your real estate assets but also your life!

Real estate often involves acquiring or selling the largest asset you will ever own; doesn't that warrant the utmost care in selecting your realtor? Ruby is committed to providing you with the highest level of customer service and expertise. You deserve personalized service before, during, and after your real estate transaction.
A home is a vital aspect in all stages of life, from those just starting out in their first home to those preparing to sell and move to another place to enjoy in retirement. Whatever your real estate goal, it may be closer than you think—just a few clicks of the ruby slippers away.

Community Involvement

Ruby provides not only her real estate services but supports the communities in the Gorge through her volunteer service.  

As an active resident in the Gorge, she has provided volunteer services to the Providence Hood River Memorial Hospital, the Wasco County Veteran’s Committee and as a board member of WINGS, which is a shelter that provides training to homeless youth. She is currently the President of Columbia Gorge Habitat for Humanity and works as a member of the Sherman County Housing Task Force and a board member of the Wasco County Board of Property Tax Appeals.  Finally, her real estate experience extends beyond her clientele to the Mid-Columbia Housing Resource Center where she has been an instructor of the ABC’s of Homebuying.
