Interests: Ruth came to the Bay Area in the `70s and was captivated by this vibrant and cosmopolitan area. It was in San Francisco that Ruth, as a goldsmith, opened her first custom jewelry store. Called the Golden Unicorn it was by Ghirardelli Square prior to relocating to Pier 39. After selling her interest in that store she and her partner, Joyce Hansen, opened Postgate and Hansen Fine Jewelers on Union Street. They eventually sold this business to pursue other interests.
Her experiences in her jewelry business have been a wonderful basis for her career in real estate. Ruth knows that the key to success is through listening carefully to her clients so that she truly understands their dreams and goals. With this basis of communication combined with her attention to detail she has established a loyal clientele.
