Energy, experience, integrity and the calm efficiency to complete transactions smoothly. Those are the hallmarks of a professional. A professional you want on your side.

Always FOCUSED on my clients, I bring hands on experience beyond the normal negotiation of real estate sales. Over the course of more than a decade of experience, and deals worth more than $20,000,000, I have acquired an extensive knowledge of real estate.

That breadth of knowledge spans both residential and commercial properties. I have been a principal in a variety of projects, including entitlement of vacant land, development of luxury residential neighborhoods, multi-family, rehab of existing structures, as well as the acquisition and re-positioning of distressed properties.

As an active real estate investor, I frequent speaker on real estate. I constantly monitor rapidly changing market statistics. My local knowledge combined with current strategies for marketing properties is our companies hallmark.

    Excellence in Real Estate – Windy Ruffini leads the Focus Real Estate Team!

    If you are looking to buy or sell real estate – look no further for the most personalized, caring, and professional agent in Orange County – Windy Ruffini (949) 887-1393!

    We first met Windy when she was the Property Manager of the home we rented for 3 ½ years. She represented the owner who traveled and worked most of that time overseas. Windy was prompt, courteous, and responsive to our needs as renters throughout that time.

    When we began our search for a home to purchase, we met many other real estate agents at various Open Houses – but, it was Windy who we trusted to have our best interests at heart. She was always available when we needed questions answered and seemed to be in a perpetually optimistic mood, even when we were confused about locations and had spent long days not getting excited about anything. When we gave her lists of places to see, she was on it immediately and we were able to see each house we were interested in. Her knowledge of homes, beyond the basics is extensive. With each house we liked, she would explain all the good (and bad) in the materials used and focus on making sure the home was a fair value. Windy has lived in Orange County her entire life and has broad knowledge of the towns we were considering. She shares her wide range of local contractors and related services, such as painters, flooring specialists, and anything else you can come up with! She is very adept at all the technology being used today and had us into each house with a click of her cell phone as she opened each lock box.

    Her calm demeanor throughout the search and then the purchase negotiations is what truly sets her apart. Every little hiccup was dealt with in the fairest way to all parties. She listens to each side of an issue and gives you her true opinion – not one that puts herself first at all. We felt confident that everything was handled this way – Windy is a person of the highest integrity!

    While we hope to stay and enjoy our new home for many years to come, we would not hesitate to call on her again. In fact, we can’t wait to invite her over once we settle in. We could not more highly recommend Windy to our friends, colleagues and neighbors – you will NOT be disappointed!

    In our hunt for a home, Windy was patient, flexible, informative, and very responsive. We saw a wide range homes in different price ranges, different cities, and over a long period of time. Throughout the process, Windy was excellent. Notably, she demonstrated expertise in the IRC 1031 Tax-Deferred Exchange process, she arranged for a backup agent to support us during a short period of time when she was out of town, and she did double duty on our tours, teaching us about things to be aware of when purchasing a home and pointing out features of construction, design, and materials at different properties.

    Without reservation, I can say that my wife and I trusted Windy in our hunt, and would recommend her as an agent in your own hunt.

    Windy was referred to me by a good friend of mine who bought her house with Windy's help in 2017 and highly recommended Windy to us. Windy helped us found a house in less than 45 days under a 1031 transfer which has a pretty strict time constraint after my other property was sold. However, Windy started preparing us long before my other property was sold, and then, during the 45-day period, she was super diligent, and displayed incredible level of patience with me and my family members who have different and sometimes conflicting opinions and requirements that were challenging to meet. Windy was always calm and collected during this intense and stressful period. She has an intimate knowledge of the entire Orange County, was very resourceful in getting our questions answered, and was able to harmonize our various and different opinions to finally settle on a couple houses that lead to the down select of a house that we happily purchased. She has a disarming charm that helped tremendously when she represented us in negotiating the terms and conditions of the purchase, and she did an excellent job. I would not hesitate at all recommending Windy to any of my family members, friends, colleagues, and neighbors, and hope I will get to work with her again in the future.

    My husband and I were looking for a very particular property. I would say we weren’t the easiest clients, but windy was so patient and kind with us. She was knowledgeable about the area and the houses we toured. Windy knows her construction as well as her real estate. She’s on top of it when it comes to price of the home and what’s selling in the area. Windy is truly an amazing and kind person. I would recommend her to any of my friends or family.

    My wife and I were referred to Windy through a co-worker, and it was the best referral we could have received. Windy was constantly staying in touch with us as properties in our price range came available, and was quick to get us private showings around our schedules. Her knowledge of the surrounding communities and intricacies inside of every home we saw was extremely helpful to us. She was very honest with us through the whole process (offer, negotiations, etc.) that we knew we were getting the best deal.
    Her passion for her job really showed throughout our purchase process. We are so pleased that she was able to help us purchase our first property!
