Valerie Ruma

Hello and thank you for visiting my website.  Allow me to introduce myself.  I was born and raised in N. Ohio along the shores of Lake Erie.   I relocated to the Bay Area right after graduation from Kent State University for the climate as well as the excitement of the business culture in the Silicon Valley and I have never looked back.  I ended up in the East Bay and except for a short stint in San Francisco, I have been here ever since.  I have lived in Berkeley and now live in Alameda which is quaint and charming, but I also love the hip, urban, diverse feel that is modern day Oakland.  I finally decided that I would love selling houses far more than technology so in 2010 I made the jump to Real Estate and again, I have never looked back. I bring over 20 years of experience in corporate sales and marketing to my real estate practice as well as legal expertise garnered from several years of selling technology to law firms.  But most of all, I bring a high level of professionalism and an innate knowledge of how to read an audience and package a marketing plan to appeal to that audience such that the result is a win win conclusion.  Whether you are a buyer or a seller you will benefit not only from my skills as a project manager and negotiator, but from my steadfast determination to get the very best outcome for my clients however that looks to them.  

Won’t you join my growing flock of satisfied customers by contacting me today to list your current home or help you find your new home.   I look forward to hearing from you.
