is shutdown.

Thank you for your interest in the Cindy Ruppert Real Estate website.

Sadly, Cindy passed away on November 11, 2018. Starting on November 18, 2019 this is no longer an active site.

Cindy was lucky to have a great agent working with her for nine years, Linda Fogle. Linda likes to say that she was trained by the best. She shares Cindy’s dedication to her clients, work ethic, and integrity. I strongly recommend her to you for your real estate needs. Call her at 817-832-7298 or email

Neither the website nor the domain name are for sale.

Again, thank you for your interest and business for the past 15 years. More of my personal thoughts are below.

Bill Ruppert’s Personal Thoughts on Shutting Down

I was Cindy Ruppert’s husband of 35 years. She passed away a year ago, on November 11, 2018, due to breast cancer. Her obituary and some family photos can be found here.

I have been the webmaster and sole developer of this site since we started it 15 years ago. At that time I was trying, without great success, to be a consultant and she said "I need a website" and off we went. She drew a few diagrams of how she wanted the site to work and those basics have not changed.

They say you should wait a year before making big decisions, and now that she has been gone a year I have made the very difficult and sad decision to shut down the site.

I have enjoyed working on, but without Cindy there is just no joy in it for me. Keeping it going is very timing consuming and prevents me from doing things I would like (especially travelling) and pursuing other ventures that may lie ahead.

I feel very bad about disappointing the amazing and loyal group of regular visitors we have had over the years. Cindy and I were buoyed by the wonderful feedback we received from the site’s many loyal fans. Thank you so much for your support!

I recommended Linda Fogle above. She has completed over 200 transactions, but since she was always a member of Cindy’s team, she does not get credit for them in the publicly available records. But she knows her stuff.

I do hope you loyal fans contact her to help you out. She will take good care of you. She can set up a search in the MLS that will automatically send you the new and changed homes of interest to you. I promise she won’t bother you. Call her cell at 817-832-7298 or email

Since I posted the shutdown announcement, I have been incredibly moved by many warm messages of both thanks and condolences. I thank you all very much.

I have also received interest in selling the site or the domain name, or of helping to set up similar websites. I actually tried to do this a number of years ago and found it to be more difficult than I expected. If I agreed to do something, I would be committed to its success. This is more than I can promise right now. I need to stop.

Once again, I have to thank everyone for your support, business, and kind words.

Warmest regards,
Bill Ruppert
