Ruth Yeskel is an award-winning, licensed real estate broker, based on the Upper West Side Office of Halstead Real Estate. She has established her business footprint in Upper Manhattan, Harlem, Upper West Side, and Wall Street.

During 13 years in the real estate business, Ruth has established herself as a skilled negotiator, and has received top peer-professional recognition, including the Real Estate Board of New York (REBNY) “Deal of the Year” award in 2008.

Ruth’s business goals are, in her own words, “to meet or exceed my clients’ goals, even if it sometimes means surprising them with unexpected ideas.”

Born in Egypt, raised in Tel Aviv and a service veteran of the Israeli Army (IDF), Ruth was an exceptional young athlete whose abilities and competitiveness resulted in her winning three Bronze Medals in the Maccabee Games and qualifying for the Israeli track and field team for the 1976 Montreal Olympics.

Prior to transitioning into the real estate field, Ruth worked as a skilled systems analyst and IT professional for major law firms and financial organizations. Preparing academically for her systems work, she learned that, in both systems and business, every variable matters. She offers clients a disciplined work ethic, creative thinking and careful attention to both details and opportunities, all coupled with a deep client-care mentality.

Ruth works uniquely but equally well with sellers, investors and buyers, and understands how their needs can differ.

She has a broad knowledge of the real estate business, from evaluating a property to preparing a purchase cost analysis, with the ability to analyze and give an in-depth report about the marketing conditions and their impact (both obvious and subtle) on the potential seller or buyer.

Her unique cross-cultural upbringing and conversational fluency in French and Hebrew further enable Ruth to connect with a diverse clientele, with understanding, empathy and success.

A true New Yorker who has lived in the city for 30 years, Ruth offers her clients an insider’s perspective on NYC real estate, a razor sharp analytical mind and smart decision-making abilities, along with caring, empathetic and insightful guidance.

Outside of her professional work, Ruth is active in outdoor sports, Yoga, swimming, “healthy cooking,” jazz and international travel.
