Ruth Adams


To say that Texas real estate is in Ruth’s bones is just the start. Her family has had flags of the Lone Star State waving outside their homes since 1837 when they helped found the city of Dallas. As a kid, Ruth grew up with a reverence for the land – soaking up the summer sun, playing in the creek behind her house, and raking leaves from the 200-year-old live oaks. Her grandmom always said that everyone should own a piece of land in Texas so when it came time to choose a career, Ruth decided to help as many people as she could follow her grandmom’s advice.

With a degree in Business Finance and Real Estate from UNT and 21 years of experience as a real estate professional, Ruth has become the single source for all her clients’ real estate needs. When her sellers are ready to hit the market, Ruth is prepared to help them earn the highest price, in the shortest amount of time and with the least hassle. Her 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. Ruth’s buyers will be excited to hit the road with her to find their next home as Ruth is 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, Ruth understands the importance of finding the right neighborhood and home for your desired lifestyle.

She believes firmly in having a positive impact on her community and volunteers with organizations that focus on improving the well-being of society. A board member for Art From the Street, Ruth helps aspiring artists create and sell their work so they can help themselves toward financial independence with improved self esteem and confidence. As a board member for Dress For Success, Ruth helped women better themselves professionally, personally and economically through skills and job training. Ruth is a proud and active member of the Women's Symphony League which is the largest donor to Austin Symphony Orchestra for which all proceeds go toward educating the students of central Texas.
