Ruth Harle

It’s more than just a job to me. I love the multi-facets of the work of meeting the challenges, making a difference in people’s lives, sharing and building relationships. Striving for excellence is an attitude toward life for me, I first learned from my father who coached the American Olympic Figure Skating Team. His two gold medal winners taught me the mindset of focus and commitment needed to go for the gold.

The privilege of growing up on the Austrian ski slopes, leads to my passion for alpine touring and skiing. I often transfer that skill of confidence into life and business challenges.

Helping my clients and becoming their pathfinder and guide through the complexities of buying and selling their home is what makes my business so rewarding.

My husband Tom and my daughter Taeya give me the balance in my life. Most of my extra time revolves around my daughter’s riding events. After riding as a youth rider and national competitor for 10 years, she now has been riding for California’s NCAA equestrian team for the last 4 years. As an architect, my husband often lends valuable insights and advice on land developing and remodeling. We have lived an acreage lifestyle with horses, dogs and the gamete of farm animals.
