Ruby Xue arrived in Canada in 2002 to study economics and finance at Carleton University. During this time, she fell in love with the city and after receiving her Bachelor of Arts, she decided to stay and work there.
In the early days, her broadened perspective as an international student combined with her education laid the foundation for her success in real estate. Namely, her integration of Chinese and western culture proved invaluable in important areas, such as negotiation and rapport, especially when helping to bridge the gap between the thinking of Chinese and western people. Complimenting this, her foundation in economics gave her a keen sense of business and the real estate market. This led to her being among the top 1% performing Royal LePage brokers nationwide, and the only one bilingual in Mandarin and English.
