About Ruby Farias

I was born in Indiana and I come from a large family; 6 sisters and 4 brothers. I have lived in a number of states: MA, IL, IN, TX, WA so I have traveled a bit but now have settled in North Scottsdale where I live with my very supportive husband and my 16 year old daughter. I was in the banking industry for 28 years and now I just focus on my passion as an artist.

Ruby Farias purchased this house in 1995

Why Ruby Farias chose Phoenix

This was my first home when I moved to Phoenix. It just has a good vibe, open and comfortable. The house is in a quite neighborhood. It's close to everything... whether you want to shop, see a game, golf, horseback ride, hike, everything is close.

What makes this house unique

I fell in love with this house because of it's openness. Big back yard, nice size pool, plenty of room to relax and enjoy.

Desert Retreat Dream Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us - beautifully decorated and had everything we could possibly want to cook, entertain, relax and slumber. Easy to access & complete information for the wi-fi, BBQ and garbage pickup. During our week stay we enjoyed many lovely meals out on the patio under the patio fan enjoying the birds singing as we listened to the splash of the pool fountain.

Great - quiet get away spot.

The house is located in a great area - not too far from the airport and in a very quiet neighborhood. Everything we needed to have a great week was at the house!

Best vacation rental yet!

  • 5 of 5

Ruby's home was perfect for two families. We had two couples and three small children and the house had all of the amenities you would want. It also is proximate to multiple shopping locations (Safeway, Target, etc...) which allows for quickly stocking up the house. We will definitely consider returning next March for our annual spring training trip!
