Windermere Homes & Estates Welcomes Giovanni Ruiz to the Team!

Giovanni Ruiz, realtor with Windermere Homes & EstatesThis Escondido native joins Windermere Homes & Estates with a long standing history of Real Estate running through his veins. While Gio’s earlier ambitions were to work in the physical therapy field, he ultimately realized after years of schooling and travel that his love for people and connections could bring him into the same field that both his parents enjoyed for a collective 50 years total.


With a combined history in hospitality and his keen attention to detail, Gio know that he could apply both experiences toward Real Estate to help others. Gio’s history in Escondido has allowed him to make a multitude of valued connections and friends along the way. Now working with Windermere out of their Escondido branch, Gio is excited to join the fastest growing office in Southern California.


I chose Windermere because of the culture surrounding the company. It is a culture of growth and client first thinking.”


With a primary focus on first time home buyers and multi channel marketing, Gio is excited to use the tools that Windermere offers to create thriving relationships with both his existing, and his new clients to come. Using Windermere’s unique marketing tools, coupled with intense training and classes, Gio is sure to take Real Estate by storm in the Escondido and surrounding areas.


“Gio grew up in real estate. He’s seen first hand what exemplary customer service is, and brings that to his own clients. Helping buyers through their first home purchase is something that makes him happy, and we’re excited that Gio has chosen to join the team here in Escondido,” says Rich Johnson, co-owner of Windermere Homes & Estates.
