Meet Ruth:

Welcome to my Destination Real Estate world. Even though raised in the Pacific Northwest, I rediscovered Skagit County when writing about its casual life style for boating and travel publications. I fell in love with its quality of life, and moved to Anacortes 47 years ago to sail Puget Sound's beautiful waters.

During my 35 years of doing business in real estate it has been my delight to portray the picturesque beauty of Skagit County, especially Anacortes, our "City by the Sea". It allows me to bring interesting places and people together. One of my greatest joys is to introduce newcomers to our intriguing life style, sharing personal experiences and images of my Northwest paradise.

My favorite hobbies include music, sailing, travel, writing and photography.

Profession Activities

Through the years I have cultivated a working relationship with other professionals that contribute to successful transactions. Please ask me about these home inspectors, mortgage and escrow officers, reputable local builders and others.

I work in a relaxed, friendly style but have total control over the business needs and details. Let me share my wealth of "Northwest Paradise" knowledge and help you realize your lifestyle dreams. Begin discovering now.
