Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $375K in Rancho Cordova, CA.
We found Russ on Zillow and solely contacted him based off the reviews and he lived up to every bit of it. I am sure for the most part he thought we would never actually pull the trigger but stuck with us none the less. In the end we were able to get above market price for our house and negotiated a much lower cost on our new home. In the end we would recommend him to anyone int he Sacramento area.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $175K in Robla, Sacramento, CA.
Needing to do a short sale and move out of state on short notice. Russ was on the ball. We had the first offers in a couple weeks and Russ kept us informed every step of the way.

Thank you Fred. I appreciate that you and Darlene came back to work with me after 24 years when I helped you buy the home new in 1989. This short sale only took 211 days from start to finish ;-) I'm glad your family can move on without this burden of debt.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $200K in Rancho Cordova, CA.
Laid back personality put us ease. He pushed to make our deadline as best he could. He and his team, Aspen and Catherine, Worked very hard to get all the documents and keep them up to date (and there were a lot of them). We highly recommend Russ because he gets the job done, and done well.

Thank you. This was a long short sale. It took 267 days, 383 emails to the two different lenders involved and 2 buyers backed out along the way, because they got tired of waiting. But in the end it worked out. No more debt ;-)

Sold a home in 2014.
Working with Russ has been a pleasure. Russ was very understanding about my home being underwater and he supported my decision not to lower the selling price so I would be able to sell the home with minimal out of pocket expenses. It is very rare to find a broker that is willing to be patient. Russ never pressured me into accepting any of the low priced multiple offers that were presented. If you are looking to sell or purchase a home please contact Russ. He is very knowledgeable about the Sacramento neighborhoods and the closing process. I recommended Russ to my parents and they are already working with him to relocate to Sacramento. If you are selling your home Russ has a great business partner Rory that is always able to step in and help out, what's better than two brokers who are available to assist you for the price of one. Thank you Russ!

Showed home in 2010 in Alder Creek, Rancho Cordova, CA 95742.
Russ helped us out in an unusual situation after our home closed escrow. Following up after the sale was final was very appreciated and shows how much concern and care he has for his customers. Today we have the home of our dreams. Warmly, P Family!

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $175K in Rancho Cordova, CA.
Russ knew exactly the correct price range when he put my house on the market. My house was sold in five days. I got what I wanted and even more. He negotiated with the buyer to allow me two week after getting my money to my brother a place to stay. This was invaluable to me. I would not hesitating using Russ for any other transactions in the future.

I truly appreciate how hard it was for you to decide who to hire to sell your parents home. It's a very difficult and personal situation. I'm happy that you were able to see that you make a good choice. Thank you again.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $550K in Lincoln, CA.
Russ is unsurpassed as a real estate agent. He has sold three homes and helped me purchase two homes with flawless precision. I've known him for over 20 years and never seen a blip in his good reputation. He's my real estate for life!

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $500K in Rocklin, CA.
Russ was very knowledgeable about the real estate market and the processes involved in acquiring a home. It made us very confident in knowing we made the right choice in the end.

He was also quite patient with us in the midst of our painstaking decision making process and always remained focused on our buying criteria during the process. I'm guessing that could be an issue for your average realtor who might be more inclined to either "push" for a deal or spend more time with other clients.

Yours was certainly a challenge. There were very few homes to consider at the time. The type of home you wanted and the specific area that you were looking and because there were so many others who seemed to be looking for the same type of home made it interesting. You wound up getting a stunning home with a view and a pool in a gorgeous neighborhood.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $350K in Folsom, CA.
Russ has the knowledge and experience that can only be found 1 in million in my opinion. Maybe he didn't return our calls right away or maybe we didn't get the answer that we wanted right away, but that only meant he was helping another home buyer with their needs. In my opinion Russ did an excellent job especially with it being a sellers economy and he was helping us buy a house. We really thank god for allowing us to purchase this beautiful home, but we could not have done it with Russ.

Thanks Hamid. Yes, getting your VA offer accepted on a bank repo house that needed work was very difficult, but it all worked out despite a lot of lender issues.
