Get to know Ruben Hernandez
As a Yuma native for more than 40 years, I have personally seen Yuma, Arizona grow from being a small “waive to your neighbor in traffic” town to a multi-corporation / agricultural / recreational and military defense community. Yuma is still rooted in its great home town feel, and a place where you want your children to be raised.
Whether it’s golfing 345 days a year, an outing with the family at the lake, a weekend at the world renowned Imperial Sand Dunes, or just taking a 15 minute drive to old Mexico. Yuma brings you diversity, gaming, winter and summer sports and best of all, a friend to always greet you with a fine hello.
Now, tie this in with a REALTOR that captures the abilities of being personable, has strong negation skills, is bilingual, can forecast, motivated, ethical, loyal, understanding and goal oriented and you will find I’m the REALTOR you’ve been searching for.
Now, let’s put that to work for you!
