Ruth Adams



To say that Texas real estate is in my bones is just the start. My family has had flags of the Lone Star State waving outside their homes since 1837 when they helped found the city of Dallas and farmed the land in the country sides of Central Texas. I grew up with a reverence for the land – soaking up the summer sun, playing in the creek behind the mid-century house I grew up in and raking leaves from the 200-year-old live oaks. Grandmom always said that everyone should own a piece of land in Texas so when it came time to choose a career, I decided to help as many people as I could follow grandmom’s advice. And look at Texas now…. people from all over are deciding to call it home, not unlike the migration in the 1800’s.

With a degree in Business Finance and Real Estate from UNT and 26 years of experience as a real estate professional, I strive to be the single source for all my clients’ real estate needs. When a seller’s property is ready to hit the market, I am prepared to help them earn the highest price, in the shortest amount of time and with the least hassle. My marketing plan is unrivaled and will get your home in the limelight with TV promotion, an Austin Monthly ad, an AI enhanced social media strategy on top of all the basics like alerting the neighborhood with professional mailouts, photography and open houses. My buyers will be excited to hit the road to find their next home as I am armed with all the market data to ensure every penny is well spent in the Greater Austin Area. As a relocation specialist and former director of the program, I understand the importance of finding the right neighborhood and home for your desired lifestyle. 

Having a positive impact on my community is something I firmly believe in. Volunteering with organizations that focus on improving the well-being of society is a passion. As a volunteer, and past Board Member for Dress For Success, I help women better themselves professionally, personally and economically through skills and job training. I am an Executive Committee Member and proud, active volunteer with the Women's Symphony League of Austin which is the largest educational donor to The Austin Symphony Orchestra for which all proceeds go toward educating the students of Central Texas. Active in my local community, I am an Ambassador for the Lake Travis Chamber of Commerce and sit on a decision-making Board for the City of Lakeway.

" “My husband and I have been Dallas residents for several years, but we were recently first-time home buyers. Despite knowing some agents in the area, we knew we needed a Realtor with significant years of knowledge and experience in order to help us through the process. Ruth’s strong connections to the Dallas area and visibility in the real estate community in general allowed her to refer us to the exact type of realtor we needed. As a relocation expert, Ruth’s knowledge in helping us find the right agent allowed us to find exactly the type of Realtor we needed.”"
