After working in the nation’s capital, Ralsie’s roots drew her back to her hometown. She joined Shaheen, Ruth, Martin & Fonville as a Marketing Manager before becoming a licensed agent.

The combination of her marketing and organizational skills gives Ralsie a strong ability to determine effective real estate strategies for both buyers and sellers alike. She is known for her thoroughness, dependability, and creativity when working with clients, as well as her colleagues.

Ralsie grew up in Richmond VA. She graduated from St. Catherine’s School and later from the College of Charleston in South Carolina.

She believes the thriving restaurant scene, countless forms of entertainment, and strong job market makes RVA and its surrounding areas one of the best places to live in the US.

As a first time home buyer, I felt in great hands working with Ralsie. We looked at a number of houses together but she ended up reaching out to homeowners directly about their off-market house. She didn't shy away from writing a thoughtful letter on my behalf to the homeowners and we ended going through with it. Throughout the entire process from coordinating viewings to negotiations to inspections and scheduling work being done on the house she was highly communicative and eager to make the process as smooth as possible for me. I would recommend Ralsie to anyone in the homebuying process who wants a genuine, trustworthy, communicative, and knowledgeable Realtor! - Charlotte Sisk
