Ruth helped us to view many houses and (over months) to make multiple offers in a really, really tough market for buyers. Our low bids were our own fault! Ruth’s guesses are always spot on. We finally had a bid accepted last month, and Ruth helped us re-negotiate after significant problems were discovered. Ruth has gone above and beyond for us, giving us far more time during this long search than we could reasonably have expected. She even helped us look for a rental when we’d basically given up. Her advice has always been immensely valuable and brutally honest. She is the most knowledgeable agent I’ve met on the Central Austin market. She also handled our stress well, and believe me, buying in Austin right now is stressful!

I had the good fortune of meeting Ruth twenty-one years ago when she was my agent and I bought my first house. Her knowledge of Austin communities and surrounding areas was so helpful. Since then, she has been our realtor as we have bought and sold 4 houses. She has also helped us lease one of these houses for over 15 years. She’s very personable, professional, smart and her previous 14 year background in corporate finance and MBA is an asset to her clients. She’s very hard working and meticulous both in buying and selling. Her connections with trustworthy contractors, landscapers, stagers, , handymen, you name it, proved to be a great resource. She provides outstanding service and expertise throughout the entire process. Now that we’ve moved out of state and are looking for a house, we miss her tremendously.

Ruth Powers made selling and buying in this crazy Austin market a pleasure. She knew when to advise and when to step back, always there to make our experience as easy as possible.

Ruth is amazing. She works extremely hard. We have worked with her since we bought our first home. Every house that we own as a home or an investment, she excels in every transaction that takes place. We have learned tons about real estate and Austin from Ruth. In the past, I have worked with other agents to …

Thumbs up to realtor Ruth Powers who found my perfect home. What would have been a stressful purchase was eased by her expertise.

Ruth Powers is an excellent realtor. She knows what she’s doing and looks out for her clients. She’s great!

Ruth is very professional and knowledgeable. She was definitely put to the test on the sale of my home, but we finally got me out and into my new home. I have and will continue to refer Ruth to others.

Ruth Powers is an AMAZING agent!!! She has helped me through three moves in the past 8+ years and each time she has exceed her efforts from the last time!!! Anyone wanting extraordinary service (and who doesn’t) should sign up with Ruth!!! The most recent \above and beyond\ thing Ruth did was, after her car broken down, walk nearly 2 miles in the blazing heat to make sure she got to my house on time to show it to a prospective buyer! Not for one second did she even consider rescheduling the appointment – a mark of a very dedicated agent!!! This is only one of many, many things Ruth does to serve her clients! Ruth has been an agent for many years and knows how to apply what she has learned over the years and continues to seek new resources of information – she knows how to work the market in your favor!!!


Ruth was patient, helpful and knowledgeable. We truly appreciate all she did for us!!!!

We have been working with Ruth E Powers with Realty Austin for about a year on finding a house in North Central Austin. She was great to work with! While it took awhile to find the right property (we were picky), she stuck with us. Ruth was very helpful. I don’t know how many times we called on her to show us a listing but she was always there. Ruth is very professional, courteous, knowledgeable and patient. This is the second time we used Ruth in buying a property; the first time was about 12 years ago. We highly recommend her.

Ruth is great to work with! She has been amazingly patient with this ex-Washingtonian during my exhaustive Austin house-hunt. Ruth is able to help you figure out what you want in a home, and then provide the expertise and moral support to make your dream come true. I highly recommend her! By the way, great photo Ruth!

Ruth has now helped me with two home purchases and the selling of one home. In all cases I was able to turn round my home and purchase my new homes in very easy fashion. She was able to step in when needed to create any undue concerns on my part. I have also recommended Ruth to many of my friends and colleagues, all of which have been just as pleased.
