About Ruthie

Ruthie garden 2         I am a real estate agent in Columbus, GA and love my “job.”   I enjoy being associated with the professionals at Bickerstaff Parham Real Estate and the folks that I come in contact with each and every day.  I basically just love houses and all that is associated with them.  It is so rewarding to help buyers and sellers reach their goals and to be a part of the process that makes it happen.

I especially love gardens and how they can work to improve a property both in aesthetics and funciton.  As a Master Gardener, I feel that I can add another dimension to the home buying and selling process.  Partnered with my love of creatively doing the “what if we” changes to houses and my attention to detail, I can offer my clients a well-rounded approach to meeting their real estate goals while having some fun along the way.

I have lived in Columbus for the pasts 25 years and have been actively involved in the community of Columbus.  My involvements include being the 1996 Race Director for the Steeplechase at Callaway Gardens;  a past board member of Girls,Inc and the Columbus Regional Tennis Association (CORTA);  a current board member of the State Botanical Garden of Georgia, the Columbus Botanical Garden, the Chattahoochee Valley Camellia Society, and the Women’s Reading Club of Columbus.  I am a member of St. Luke United Methodist Church where I serve on the Altar Guild.photo (10)

I am a UGA Bulldawg – having grown up in Athens and attended the University of Georgia where I received a BA degree in Advertising.  I have two daughters, two great son-in-laws, five grandchildren and a Jack Russell Terrier named Jasper.  I live in the historic Overlook area in Columbus where I recently purchased an older home and enjoyed the experience of putting my creative knowledge and skills to work!


Sign, Sign …… Everywhere a Sign

signs 1                         Have you ever just looked at signs?  They’re everywhere – in our homes, our work and play places, our neighborhoods and our communities.  I thought that it would be fun and informative to start taking a look at the signs that surround us and then taking the opportunity to blog about them.  What can we learn from signs? What can they tell us?  I hope you will join me on this journey, as I follow some signs and head in a new direction.  It won’t be difficult – I will  just do what the Five Man Electrical Band told us to do in 1971 —  “Sign, sign, everywhere a sign.”

I hope that you will begin following my blog and share it with friends and family that may need a little “direction.”  If you have a sign that you want me to research and post, please contact me at ruthannecurtis@gmail.com.

    Love your blog, Ruthie. I think you bring such a talent to the real east ate market in terms of seeing the potential in a home that may not have that certain appeal but has promise!
