Associate Real Estate Broker
Lead Agent for The McLennan Team

Hello. My name is Ruthie McLennan and I am excited that you are finding our site valuable. As a Licensed Associate Real Estate Broker specializing in luxury properties in the Southern Tier and Finger Lakes area of New York for over 25 years, it is my commitment to make sure that you have an amazing experience whether you are buying a home, selling a home, investing in property, or relocating to or from the area.

During my career I have had the opportunity to serve well over a thousand home buyers and sellers with their real estate needs. In this time, I have seen and experienced the growth of cities like Painted Post,Corning, Big Flats, Horseheads, and West Elmira among others. As a native of Corning and part owner of the Horseheads Keller Williams Realty office, I have also experienced and been a part of the many changes in the real estate industry over the years.

When I am not helping buyers and sellers, I enjoy spending time reading, painting, exploring our nearby cities, and traveling to fun destination cities like Las Vegas.

It is a privilege to be in business with my husband, Charlie who retired from the IT world and joined me in real estate. While I love the sales side of our business, his strengths are in the operational side… a true symbiotic relationship which has served our clients well over the years.

Here are a few additional facts about me:
« Top Sales Associate Elmira-Corning Board of REALTORS
« Top Sales Associate Keller Williams Realty in Upstate NY Region
« Member National Association of REALTORS (NAR)
« Member New York State Association of REALTORS
« Member National Builders Association
« Bachelor’s of Psychology, State University of New York College at Potsdam

If you are a Seller or a Buyer,I will keep daily track of structural inspections, mortgage commitment, and stay in close contact with your Attorney to make sure your Real Estate experience goes as smoothly as possible.

Communication is the key to any successful contract and with The McLennan Team, we make sure communication is our top priority for you. Being a Licensed Real Estate Agent for the past five years allows me to understand your needs, share in your excitement and combine my abilities with The McLennan Team to allow you to receive the service that you deserve.

Business Manager for The McLennan Team

As Business Manager for the Team, I unequivocally state ‘I love my job’!

I have -what I consider- an exciting set of Team responsibilities including anything related to finances, the internet, systems development, Team standards, operations reporting and -my absolute favorite duty – marketing.I think the skill set I bring to the Team from my work in IT Systems Development has been helpful in developing a quality set of Standard Operating Procedures to ensure the Team provides a consistently high level of service to our clients.

We are continuously reviewing and updating our process to maintain our client services at the highest level. When wife Ruthie started her residential real estate career years ago, I never dreamed I could have so much fun! Ruthie immediately asked for my help learning the profession and supporting her efforts to grow the business and here we are. We are both very proud of  The McLennan Team!
