      - Highly likely to recommend

      Bought a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $175K in Fayetteville, NC.
      Well let me start off by saying that coming into contact with Mr. Russell was honestly a blessing. My husband and I are a younger military couple and when we started to contemplate buying a house we were very uncertain as to how the whole process worked. I came to the knowledge of Mr. Russell by a referral of a well known business man in the area, the things he had told me about him had proved themselves to be true, he simply said he was one of the best as well as honest (which is what we wanted more than anything). My husband was very impressed with how our home buying experience went (nothing ever impresses him). If you want someone that will dedicate their time, their knowledge, and there excellent experience to you I highly recommend Rusty. He returned our phone calls, he represented us better than I could have ever hoped for, and he has definitely taken the fear of home buying right out from under us and exceeded all expectations.  MoreLess

      Sold a home in 2010.
      We have purchased and sold 2 homes through Rusty in the recent past. I can't say enough about his expertise, local knowledge and work ethic. He is a trusted agent whom we recommend to everyone we know. If you are looking to purchase or sell in the greater Fayetteville/Fort Bragg area he is the real estate agent that you want on working for you!  MoreLess

      Helped me rent a home.
      My husband and I were moved to Ft. Bragg in 2012. We searched for a rental in an area that was close for both of us to commute to work. We found a rental home that Rusty was an agent for. Upon inquiring about the property, Rusty replied that he was not available for showing, but that his wife would meet us at the property for a walk through.

      His wife (very nice lady) met us at the home and showed us around. She did not know many details about the property since she, herself, wasn't the agent. In a hurry to find somewhere to live, my husband and I decided to sign the lease for the property.

      When the time came to sign the lease, Rusty, again, was not available. His assistant at ReMax went over the lease with us for signing. She, also, did not know all of the details and could not answer all of the questions we had, as he may have been able to do.

      During the summer, we found out that our A/C was not working, which is considered "Emergency Maintenance." We contacted ReMax right away and was told that Rusty would handle sending someone out to fix it. We went TEN days without air conditioning in 90+ degree weather. When I contacted him directly, he said "Yeah, well I'm dealing with about eight other people in front of you... we're doing the best we can." After a company finally came out to look at our A/C, they told us they had to get approval before they could fix it. Another FIVE days pass, the A/C people contact us again and say that the owner of the home could not afford to fix the A/C, but only do a temporary fix with recharging and chemicals. The A/C was never completely fixed.

      Some months later, Rusty contacted my husband. This was the first time Rusty had EVER spoken to us, other than telling us that we were "on his list" to help. He told us that the owner of the home wanted to move back in as soon as possible. We gladly started searching for new places. We found a much nicer home in a better neighborhood (with a different company). Once we told Rusty we were ready to move, he instructed us that we would have to set up a move-out inspection on a date and time that was convenient for him. We set it up for a weekday at lunch time, since both my husband and I work.

      Rusty was 30 minutes late for the inspection. Although the house was MUCH cleaner than when we moved in, he commented on several things that were not "up to par." He did not have our move-in inspection sheets with him to check against the issues, only a blank notepad.

      It ended up with us moving out, the owner moving back in, and my husband and I getting a letter in the mail this week stating that we "OWE" ReMax money, even after taking our entire deposit.

      In closing, we had to deal with Rusty's attitude and non-attentiveness, as well as cater to the owner's unwillingness to fix things, and moving out before our lease ended. And now, we owe them more money. Maybe Rusty is trying to juggle so many things at one time that he cannot show enough RESPECT and care for his rental tenants.

      Either way, my husband and I will NEVER deal with ReMax again, especially Rusty.
