Ruth DeVilliers combines the qualities of patience, market savvy and a tireless work ethic to give her clients exemplary service. While with Barbara Cleary’s Realty Guild, she was the top producer two out of the last five years and also honored with the Presidential Award, given for exceptional sales achievement. She diligently searches for each of her client’s “dream home” with care and dedication to their needs.

Prior to entering the real estate field, Ruth had a 35-year career as an international flight attendant for TWA. While she enjoyed traveling the world for over three decades, Ruth is also the mother of two children, and she and her husband, Les, have lived in New Canaan since 1979. Les writes books on the African safari, and they travel to Africa yearly to partake of the experience. Over the years, Ruth has been involved in numerous town, school and church activities and is currently the organizer for Meals on Wheels for the Grace Community Church.

She looks forward to assisting her clients in fulfilling all their real estate goals.


”I am writing to sing the praises of one of your brokers, Ruth DeVilliers. We stumbled upon her while searching for a home (originally in Darien and other parts). As busy professionals and parents, we were so fortunate to be greeted by Ruth who not only listened to our needs, but was patient, punctual, precise, professional, always readily available...and in short a gem in this industry.” C.
