At the heart of everything is the ability to imagine a dream and make it come true. Ruth Whitney Bowe has been doing that in this town for over 30 years. A love of music sparked her vision for a new nightclub in Minneapolis; she designed, built, owned and operated The Fine Line Music Cafe in 1987 and it remains a crown jewel of Twin Cities nightlife. After performing at the Fine Line, Prince contacted Ruth to collaborate on the creation of Glam Slam nightclub, his musical playground in downtown Minneapolis for many years. In 1993 she continued her interests in the hospitality industry by opening Black’s Ford restaurant in Wayzata which was an instant success.
With over one hundred and fifty million in sales Ruth has fine-tuned her business acumen and unique expertise in negotiations and building construction as a residential real estate professional. She has continued her legacy of leadership, serving as head of the Minneapolis Lakes Office Distinctive Homes group at Coldwell Banker Burnet from 2013 to 2020; a networking association for upper bracket real estate professionals. She has now moved to Compass, the #1 residential real estate brokerage in America where she continues to work with others to imagine their dreams… because at the end of the day the heart of everything is in your home.
