Hi,

I’m Lynne Ruffin.  I am a native of the Hampton Roads area.  It has been my permanent home all my life.  Graduate of Maury High School and Norfolk State University.  

I live in the Ballentine neighborhood.  It is a neighborhood that has seen a lot of positive growth in recent years.  

My favorite restaurant is Macaroni Grill in the Pembroke area of Virginia Beach.  And my favorite pastime is chilling at the beach during the warm months.

A mother, grandmother, and daughter family is very important to me. I love to see everyone win.  Even though they think I pick favorites I don’t.  Some just require more attention to others.  I have a granddaughter that is a freshman at my alma mater.  She has around a 3.8 GPA for her sophomore year.  She has already completed four years of Spanish because due to my advice she started taking foreign language in Middle School.  

One thing I learned this area has a lot of opportunity when it comes to education.  I think it would be safe to say in general Virginia is one of the education hubs of the world.  The ones who go after it make it.  I was blessed to have gotten letters of interest from some top universities when I was in school.  I took a full academic scholarship to Jackson State University in Jackson, Mississippi my first year in college and was a member of the Alpha Lambda Delta Honor Society.  My second year in college I attended Saint Augustine’s College in Raleigh, North Carolina.  My second degree was attained from Norfolk State University in Norfolk, Virginia.

My favorite reading material is self-improvement, motivational material.  I truly believe a word of encouragement can make the difference in someone giving up or going on.  

If you want to know more about me professionally I encouarge you to connect with me on LinkedIn (https://www.linkedin.com/in/lynneruffin).  Even though my major is Accounting my actual work experience has been mainly with developing systems.  I am a guru with MS Access Development.  So if there is something you are stuck on I love a challenge.  If you Google my name you’ll probably figure I love website design and development as well.  My forte is automating business processes.  One of the cutest things ever is when my youngest granddaughter tells people she doesn’t know how but her grandmother is good with computers...lol  I just love how honest children are.  They don’t know grandma took courses like PASCAL, COBOL, FORTRAN when she was in college on a monochrome screen.  Could you imagine children with all they have been exposed to as far as technology working on a monochrome screen?  It would be like a punishment.  Hello world!...lol.

Well enough about me.  If you are looking for a real estate agent in the Hampton Roads area I would love and welcome the opportunity to work with you.  As an Independent Contractor I will work with you one-on-one or more to help you buy, sell, rent, and/or invest in real estate.  Feel free to check out my business commercial real estate website as well if you are looking for a business spot to open up.
