I just have to write and say how wonderful Elizabeth is and lucky we are to have her as our Realtor. I chose Elizabeth based on the reviews on this and other sites and they are all spot on. I just never knew that buying a house could be this enjoyable and stress free. Elizabeth is incredibly professional and genuine. Each point thus far has proven exactly as she said and it's clear she has incredible experience. Besides the important aspects such as excellent communication (very prompt); and thoroughness and efficiency (such as providing a print out of each house we visit in order of our visit, no less, so we can take notes); she is completely dedicated to ensuring a great experience...right down to the tiny details. You want to drive? Sure thing. You want her to drive? Great! Tell her the houses you want to see or let her be the driver - you simply can't beat the tailored service. I've learned I need a break when touring many houses in a day and she graciously accommodates my request to stop at Starbucks to re-energize and go over the day's bounty. What Realtor takes this kind of time out just for you? Elizabeth does. I just had to write my thoughts down and thus this post. We have not yet bought our house yet - we've just started looking - but I am just so impressed and am loving the experience - my husband included! (PS - since we haven't bought our house yet - I didn't want to mark the stars for Negotiation Skills, but the system won't let me publish this without marking something and I am certain she will prevail with the same excellence in this area!)
Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $625K in Concord, CA.
Elizabeth Russo did a great job of selling my house. Her property presentation skills were amazing, and because of them we had four offers $26k over the asking price within two weeks of the listing. The transaction ended up being a bit tricky and Elizabeth was extremely ethical and professional. I am glad she was on my side and would highly recommend her.

Elizabeth is awesome. Ok, so here's the deal. Elizabeth sold me my condo back in May of 2012. I had a strict plan: I was to buy a condo, keep it for two years, while I bettered my career, and it appreciated in value. My hope was for the condo to pay for the down payment of my future home. According to Elizabeth, I was a very calm first time home buyer, because I did everything she told me to do, bwahaha! It totally paid off, because she just sold that condo for me, last month - The crazy thing doubled in value! With the money I cleared, she helped me buy a real home with land, close to work. Oh, and I paid off all of my school loans and had extra money for Starbucks too. I believe in Karma; I do my best, and I know Elizabeth does too. Everything went along as planned, everything. If I ever need a realtor again, I will be calling her.

Elizabeth Russo sold our family home quickly for the asking price. She came over and suggested we make a few changes here and there. We followed her advice and were suprised at how much of a difference it made. She knows what buyers like to see. It's really not as simple as one would think but, it made all the difference for us.
The pictures for the listing made the house look new! Elizabeth knows what it takes to make a property look its best (another job that is not as simple as it seems).
She guided us very well through all the legal requirements and paperwork effortlessly.
Our house sold in a few days, not weeks. She made the proccess easy and fun!

Elizabeth Russo is a phenomenal realtor! We were looking to sell our condo and buy a house and didn't know where to start. We received a flyer in the mail with some of Elizabeth's impressive recent sales in our immediate area and decided to send her an email. She responded within minutes, even though it was outside of "normal" business hours. Right from the very start she was extremely friendly, helpful and professional. She is very knowledgeable about the area we were selling in as well as where we were looking to buy.
We had a very tight timeline to sell our place and find a new one, but Elizabeth worked with us to make it all happen. She put us in touch with a great team to get a loan for the new house and knew just how to get our condo ready and presentable to show for sale without us having to move out. She stayed on top of everything to make sure it all went as quickly and smoothly as possible and that we got the best deal possible on both ends. Throughout the entire process of both buying and selling, she was always available, answered all our questions and kept us informed constantly about any and all updates. All the paperwork was a breeze since it was available electronically, so we could get things signed as soon as they were ready. We really lucked out finding her and highly recommend her to family, friends or anyone looking to either sell or buy a place!
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $275K in Brentwood, CA.
We first met Elizabeth when we started looking for property in Brentwood Ca . We had not selected a Realtor yet but had seen a house we wanted to view and it happened to be Elizabeth's listing, she also showed us another house in same neighborhood which we ended up buying, We were impressed with her honesty that she didn't pursuade us to buy her listing instead even though it would have been more commission for her.. . We liked her right away she is very personable and friendly very easy to to talk to , not to mention very knowledgeable in her business and technically driven. We docu signed everything since we didn't live in Brentwood. We closed in 30 days though the listing agent was lagging Elizabeth stayed on top of the process and was very successful in getting our deal closed ... We would recommend Elizabeth for your real estate transactions.

Elizabeth helped me sell a property and she truly exceeded my expectation. I needed to sell it fast and I was satisfied with the result. She was very professional and also sincere from the very beginning. I called her after seeing the reviews online and she got back to my in no time. She asked my needs and provided good advise on how to proceed. During the whole process she was very accessible and kept me informed of the status of potential buyers and other parties. Her service was outstanding and I would definitely recommend her.

Elizabeth Russo is super! She is an excellent real estate professional and knows the market really well! In this crazy sellers' market she helped me buy a perfect condo in the complex I wanted, and I did not even pay more than the condo was appraised at!!! Moreover, she always made an effort to work around my crazy schedule when looking at condos in Walnut Creek. I loved that everything was done electronically and that I was able to sign documents on my phone. She was also great and took her time at answering all of my emails and questions, which was very important to me as a first-time home buyer. I strongly recommend Elizabeth Russo and I would definitely contact her again if I would need real estate services!!!
Elizabeth Russo is an exceptional real estate professional. She recently helped me to purchase a new home for my parents. Her outstanding qualities include: knowledge of the Walnut Creek area, experience and patience, efficiency in addressing questions and problems and her dedication to provide excellent service. Additionally, she is quite technology / computer savvy and works extremely well with her team. There is no need to mention I was well informed through out the whole process. I am glad to have been associated with such a top-notch real estate agent.
