Ratings & Reviews

I was most impressed with Mike's negotiation skills and his knowledge of home value. I felt that he aggressively negotiated on our behalf and helped to get a great deal. He also had a lot of knowledge about housing plans and contacts with government authorities. For our purchase there was a serious concern over the sewer system and Mike knew who to talk to to get more information which put us at ease. He is also very responsive and easy to reach with any issues. I would highly recommend him to others.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $250K in Warwick, RI.

Mike was a godsend to my wife and I as we purchased our new home. Mike was extremely knowledgeable and developed a good relationship with us while the process went on, and wasn't pushy like you see in other salespeople; he genuinely cared about getting us the best house in the best location at the best price. His patience with the details and intricacies of the VA loan proved invaluable. I truthfully can't think there is anybody out there better in the real estate profession than Mike.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $175K in Warwick, RI.

Mike was referred to us because of his experience with helping doctors relocate (in our case, my wife is a 1st year resident). If you are a doctor that's moving to the RI or MA area, I can only give you one piece of advise... CALL MIKE! He completely understands the time constraints, financial limitations, and difficulties that young doctors are experiencing when looking for a home.

Mike has been an incredibly knowledgable resource for my wife and I during the purchase of our first home. We found a home and completed the purchase in about 60 days.

Good luck buying or selling your home!

Bought a home in 2014.

With Mike’s guidance, I recently purchased a home which involved several moving parts. Despite being a complex transaction, Mike made me feel at ease throughout the process, with his immense knowledge of the real estate market and home buying process, and his calm demeanor. Mike was very responsive, knowledgeable and easy to approach with any and all questions or concerns I had. I highly recommend Mike for his knowledge, professionalism, and honesty.

Bought a home in 2014 in Albion, Lincoln, RI 02865.

I was recommended to Mike’s agency by a co-worker, and then we were set up with Mike based on the town where we wanted to buy a house. When we looked at houses, Mike came with us to give us his honest opinion about the value of each house and noticed things we didn’t. We felt comfortable with him right away because it was easy to see how knowledgeable and experienced he was. Once we found the house we wanted, he led us in the right direction and made sure we got the best deal possible. As first-time homebuyers, we were very fortunate to have him as our realtor. Anytime we had questions or encountered any type of problem, he responded very quickly and knew exactly what to do to resolve the matter. Not only did his expertise stand out, but he also took the time to reassure us whenever we had concerns. We can’t thank Mike enough for all that he did to ensure the whole buying process went smoothly. We would recommend him to anyone looking to buy a house. In fact, we speak very highly of him to all of our friends, and have already recommended him to two friends that are planning to buy in the same area in the near future.

Sold a home in 2013.

We enlisted the service of Michael after reading postive reviews on several websites. We had a condo which we were looking to sell. Michael was nothing short of professional and was always available when we needed him. After 6 months on the market, our condo sold!!! We recommend Michael to anyone who is looking to buy or sell!!

Sold a home in 2013 in Hamilton, RI 02852.

My husband and I were looking to sell our house and upgrade to a larger, more updated home. Our home was small and on the more difficult side to sell, but Mike was able to sell our home and found us our dream house in the exact location we wanted. As with most house sales and purchases, there were ups and downs throughout the process, but Mike stayed positive, was incredibly encouraging and was confident that everything would work out. He was absolutely correct! Mike was dedicated, responsive to our needs and just an all around great real estate agent to work with! I highly recommend Mike for your real estate needs!!!

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $500K in North Smithfield, RI.

If you are looking for a hard working and honest realtor that will treat you with respect and that will be there when you need him...Michael Russo is the guy you want! My husband and I were referred to Mike by a friend. With Mike's hard work and dedication, we closed on our home in mid October. When we met Mike we knew right away that this was the realtor we wanted. He treated us like family and made us feel like we were his only client. He almost always answered his phone when we needed to reach him and if he didn't, he called us right back. His knowledge and experience helped us make some difficult decisions and when we needed a nudge in the right direction he was there. He is very respectful and very friendly. It was a pleasure working with Mike and when we are ready to purchase our next home we will definitely be calling him!

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $200K in Pawtucket, RI.

I can't say enough about the positive experience I had working with Michael. Michael is extremely detailed oriented and responsive to all questions/comments. Emails and phone calls were all returned same-day, if not within minutes. Perhaps more impressive, Michael was able to solicit multiple bids on our home within 30 days in a challenging real estate environment and successfully negotiate/close the transaction within 60 days. I would highly recommend Michael and his team.

Michael was an excellent agent. Always there when I needed him. When I needed to look at the condo again, he was there. I bought a condo and he sold my home. I highly recommend him. Thanks Mike.
