Maurice and Ruth Ann Rowe founded Rowe Realty as a small company — with big connections — performing valuation and selling real estate for government and financial institutions. We’re still locally owned, independent and family owned — but now auctioning, selling and appraising both real estate and personal property with our son, Jason "Rowe" Intini.
With 30 years of real estate experience — and having encountered every imaginable real estate problem — we have the ability to make the difficult — easy. We’ve been able to adapt — in a constantly changing world — staying ahead of the curve – free of the restrictions and expenses of the big companies.
We strive to strategically and aggressively market your real estate — to achieve your goals without excuses — and to build relationships for a lifetime!
Ruth Ann Rowe
Principal Broker, Certified Appraiser
Ruth Ann Rowe is a Rochester native, who spent weekends at the family retreat in the Bristol Hills. She grew up as a city girl with a love of the rugged mountains and crystal clear waters of the Finger Lakes. With a business degree from SUNY Empire State College, she opened her solo appraisal practice in 1986. She learned real estate sales from the best, and combined sales and appraisal to form Rowe Realty & Appraisal, Inc in 1995.
That year brought big opportunities! Already an FHA and VA appraiser, government agencies reached out to offer property management over a wide region in NYS – from Lake Ontario to the Pennsylvania border. And she’s still going strong today! Protecting and preserving our precious resources - homes for future families.
To strengthen families and minimize the impact of foreclosure, Ruth Ann donates many hours to Rochester Home Opportunities and HomeCounselor.org, a non-profit founded in 2002. Located in Canandaigua, NY, she provides mortgage counseling to homeowners in default and advocates with lenders to help get homeowners current and using their money smartly.
Ruth Ann is proud of the warm atmosphere of the Rowe Realty office, and of the staff that have become like family and friends. She lives outside Rochester, NY with her husband, a lab, dauchund and six Haflinger ponies.
Ruth is genuinely interested in you and can help solve real estate problems.
