About Ruth Ann

Ruth Ann Bowers possesses an encyclopedic knowledge of the luxury residential marketplace in Metro Boston and niche markets outside the city. Familiar with all the unique neighborhoods and communities, she can inform her clients on everything - from the school systems to the best dry cleaners and top local restaurants. Ruth Ann and longtime business partner, George Jedlin, have been representing buyers, sellers, and investors for more than 20 years. Their market expertise, depth of experience, and the impeccable white glove service they consistently provide their clients has made the Bowers Jedlin Team (known around town as “Ruth Ann & George”) one of the top producing teams at Douglas Elliman.

Formerly a math teacher, Ruth Ann has a head for numbers, plenty of patience, and a matter-of-fact approach to conducting business. Complementing that is her tireless work ethic, dogged determination, persistence, and spunk - a winning combination of qualities that have earned her a loyal clientele. The utmost professional, she is committed to “getting the deal done” while maintaining integrity, the highest ethical standards, and always a smile.

What initially lured Ruth Ann away from the classroom many years ago and into the real estate arena is her desire to help people achieve their dreams. That holds true today. “I enjoy everything about what I do every day. There are few things more satisfying than helping someone find their perfect home, whether that is a condominium in a luxury high rise in the Seaport or lovely home in a pastoral community outside the city. I pride myself on being a good listener and really understanding my client’s objectives as I know that is the best way to get them to where they want to be.”

Ever the strategic thinker, and with the marketing power and global reach of Douglas Elliman behind her, Ruth Ann works with sellers to promote their properties to the right audience. Selling a home quickly is not the only thing that matters: selling it for the best price and paving the way for a seamless transaction is an integral part of her process.

Ruth Ann resides in Boston’s South End. When she is not working, she enjoys attending the theater, working out, and socializing with friends.
