Ru grew up in New York City, then lived for 14 years in Indiana before moving to Portland in 2015. Prior to his career in commercial real estate, he was a top performing medical sales representative for international brands such ConMed Linvatec Hall Surgical and Linde. He pivoted to commercial real estate since he wanted a challenging investor-focused career that would carry him into retirement. With a passion for multifamily investments, he is constantly touring properties, attending Portland Housing Bureau meetings, and sharing best practices with clients.
In November of 2019, he won a national Certified Commercial Investment Member (CCIM) scholarship that will place him among the 1% of all apartment advisors with this specialized training. He is pursuing a CCIM designation to better help landlords maximize their investment returns. Ru comes from a real estate family that has invested in NYC, NYS, and Asia since the late 1970’s, and he holds his own real estate investments. Before finding his home at SVN-Imbrie Realty LLC, he worked for one of the largest CRE firms in the Portland Metro area.
As a graduate of Outward Bound and NOLS, when Ru is not working, you will often find him with his wife and dog, hiking through trails in the Pacific NW.
Ru was a TKE during college - Ronald Reagan’s fraternity.
