Windermere Homes & Estates Welcomes Jovani Ruiz to its Escondido Branch!

Windermere Homes & Estates is proud to announce its newest member of the team, Jovani Ruiz. As a native North County resident, Jovani grew up in Escondido and Valley Center. After attending Valley Center HS, Jovani went on to San Diego State University where he graduated with his Bachelors of Arts in International Business.


Jovani has an emphasis on marketing and Spanish speaking markets, he wanted to work abroad in Mexico, or another Latin American country for a multi-national company. At the time of his graduation in 2009 the economy was in shambles and Jovani saw an opportunity in Real Estate at a time when most agents were getting out of the business.


As a current Escondido resident Jovani bought a duplex as his first home, utilizing his investment as a future rental income property. Jovani has even invested in a small 2 unit commercial building where his wife runs her hair salon.


“What inspired me to get into the business was a desire to learn about Real Estate as an investment vehicle. I wanted to be able to help my family, friends, and clients build stability and wealth through Real Estate. I chose Windermere Homes & Estates because the company has been developed and geared toward growth. The tools and resources are in place to continue to grow my business and provide a better, higher quality service to my clients.”


Working out of the Escondido office, Jovani is able to work in the city where he lives and thrives in business. Jovani is part of the young professionals network (YPN) at NSDCAR. Local realtors now know Jovani as a resource for social media marketing and his involvement in the local Escondido broker caravan.


“I help a lot clients buy and sell Real Estate in Escondido and beyond. I think my associate Jose Aquino and I can provide a great service to our local communities and be a resource to first time home buyers, home owners looking to move, and the Hispanic members of our community as well. We are both fluent in Spanish and are diligent Real Estate professionals that will look out for our client’s best interests. We love helping our clients achieve their home ownership goals, and we partner up with great lenders that provide various loan programs that make home ownership a reality for young families.”


“Jovani’s love for Escondido, paired with his knowledge of Real Estate, make him a good fit for our new location in Escondido.  We’re proud to have him on our team,” says Rich Johnson, co-owner of Windermere Homes & Estates.
