Meet Ruth Simmons: A Promise of Service

Ruth Simmons was born in Honolulu and raised in Southern California and Florida. 

Desiring a change, Ruth entered the United States Navy, where she would go on to spend 20 years combatting terrorism as an intelligence professional. She deployed multiple times in support of the Joint Special Operations Task Force Philippines, providing intelligence and linguistics support to Naval Special Warfare operators, Army Special Forces, and Marine maneuver elements. She was the recipient of multiple awards for her distinguished service.

Having spent the majority of her non-deployed career on Oahu, Ruth became very familiar with the Oahu's dynamic real estate market, purchasing, renovating, and selling multiple properties. Deciding that she needed to turn her personal passion into a professional career, she retired from the service and joined the dedicated team of professionals at Locations.

Fostering a commitment to excellence and professionalism, Ruth has achieved sales goals normally associated with more seasoned agents. By providing an inexhaustible level of care and support, Ruth ensures her clients realize their dreams.

Engaged in the community, Ruth is an active member of both HIHO (Hands in Helping Out) and the Locations Foundation. She enjoys spending time with her husband Kevin and son Kevin Jr. renovating homes, attending sporting events, and travelling.

Dr. and Mrs. Bhama
Ruth is very passionate about her clients. She went above and beyond to ensure that our search for the perfect house was stress free and fun. After the offer was accepted she continued to go the distance to ensure our closing process was seamless and we were well taken care of. Another great addition to your team was Sonia who throughout the closing and escrow process was patient and explained all paperwork and items needed from us. These two people made buying our house a fun stress free time and we would definitely recommend your company and Ruth for future buyers. Our family will sing your praises for years to come!

Ms. Gilreath
Ruth was very helpful from the very first conversation. As a first time buyer, I had lots of questions and anxiety about the entire process. She was always available (even odd hours and weekends) to respond and reassure me that everything was going smoothly and to exp.ain't even the smallest details about procedures. She went way out of her way to be there for inspections and repairs when I could not be, mostly because I was in California. I put in an offer without even seeing the place myself, just based on her recommendation and expertise! She has a great team and referred me to very helpful mortgage lenders and etc. Sonia also did a great job with being not only on top of deadlines and documents, but getting them to me as early as possible. I knew that I was in good hands with Sonia handling the details and communicating quickly when I had a question. Sonia and Ruth are an awesome team, and I have already referred them to a friend did moving to the island!

Mr. and Mrs. Moss
Ruth was phenomenal with the whole process of owning a home. She made it super easy for us and stress free. So happy to have met such an awesome woman who loves her job and loves helping people. Will definitely recommended her to others.

Mr. McDonald
Ruth Simmons was incredibly helpful in helping me search for and find a home. Her insight into the housing market on Oahu and the different areas was crucial in my decision. Her go-getter personality and positive, yet realistic and opinionated personality was also very helpful during stressful time buying my first home. I would and have recommended Ruth to anyone looking to buy a home on Oahu who does not want a normal people pleaser agent who will say anything to get a commission. Ruth will say what needs to be said and help get you into a place you will be happy with. Thanks Ruth!

Mr. and Mrs. Schwarzkopf
I could not have hoped for a better realtor than Ruth Simmons. The house was on the market a week and we received an offer for well over asking price. But beyond this, she treated us like family; not the kind that you only see on holidays, but like that sister that tells you things that might be hard to hear, (but that you really need to hear!). She cares deeply about what she does, and looked after us as people, even after everything was said and done. Her knowledge on every step of the process and boundless enthusiasm meant that I could relax, knowing that all of the details were taken care of by a true professional.

Mrs. Trujillo

Ruth Simmons went out of her way to help us and consistently went above and beyond! My husband and I were transferred from the island with the military and the house wasn’t quite ready to put on the market but Ruth took care of everything and took all the stress off our shoulders. Our house closed in less than two months ?? We would recommend her to anyone selling or buying a house!
