Hi I have lived in the Metro Detroit area almost my whole life.  I grew up in Allen Park.   Except for 4 years when I was with the 82 Airborne infantry as a sargeant and a parachute packer for the Special Forces school.  Then I got married and lived in Livonia for 22 years.  I lost my wife Marianne to cancer in July 2010.  So all you ladies please get a mamogram.  She was a great lady and fought cancer for 22 years.  We have a son Ryan who is currently living with his wife Katie in Chicago. He went to MSU and works for Sears now.  I am now living in White Lake Michigan.  So I know metro Detroit real well.
I now live on a lake and have another cottage a short distance away on another lake.  As you can tell I love the water.  I still ski and enjoy having friends out to the lake.  
I grew up in the landscaping business and then spent alot of years in the construction trades and the mortgage business.  I have flipped houses and have several rental houses.  All of my past experiences has given me tremendous knowledge to help buyers and sellers through the real estate process.  I can talk about the costs you might incur or be able to keep you from making a costly buying mistake.  I sell over 50 homes a year and help quite a few buyers find homes.  So I understand what it takes to make your home stand out so buyers will want them.  
    Helping clients buy and sell homes quickly has put me in the top 2% of all the Michigan realtors which is quite an accomplishment.  I owe it to my good clients, hard work, and keeping my client's interest first.  Anybody can sell homes but working hard to get the client's goals and needs meet is sometimes much harder.  My team and I want to be able to walk into any store 10 years from the time we meet you and have you greet us like we were best friends.  We will work hard to earn your trust and respect.
    My job is to make your life easier and less stressful by being able to provide you with the information to make a sound decision.  If I do not know it I'll know where to point you to get the right information.
    Many of my clients have become friends over the years and much of my business comes from the internet and referrals.  I can be found on more page 1 of google than any other realtor.  Which helps get your Metro Detroit home sold.  Over 80% of all buyers start their search on the internet and a internet geek like me will market your home in places some agents don't even know about.
    So if you are relocating to Michigan or just looking to move from one city to another give me a call or email me.  We work hard to get your home sold quickly and for more money.   Have a great day!

      Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $300K in Commerce Township, MI.
      Russ is a seasoned real estate expert who was very responsive and patient in showing around many homes. His vast experience in understanding the quality of houses saved me a lot of time and money. He could identify defects in houses with his experience which a newbie cannot identify. I didn't spend $$ and time on home inspections and we did not make offers. Once Russ was reasonably comfortable with a home, only then I would engage a professional home inspector.

      Finally when we found a great home Russ also helped in pushing Bank and Title companies during closing when there were some delays.

      Very nice and extremely prompt person to work with !!

      Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $100K in Allen Park, MI.
      Russ is a very knowledgeable Realtor. He started off by helping us sell our home which went smoothly and in a pretty quick time. I was so thrilled with him we used him again to find our next home. We looked at many houses and I am picky so I was afraid I wouldn't find a home but Russ didn't give up. We finally found a perfect match because he listened to what we had to say and made it happen. We will continue to use him in the future.  MoreLess

      Bought a Single Family home in 2012 in Waterford, MI.
      Russ is very knowledgeable regarding lakefront property in Southeast Michigan. He is willing to look at many homes with you and honestly go over the advantages and disadvantages. His tactics negotiating didn't impress; however, given the sparse availability of lakefront homes, I can assume this is why. He is very quick on responding and will even put pressure on others to respond in a reasonable time (valuation, inspector, etc.). Overall, a great experience.  MoreLess
