Team reviews

I tend to be more of a do it yourself type (I like to create my own lists for homes to see, run my own analyses, etc.) My initial inclination was to just pick the cheapest realtor to get through the process, but decided against this given the size of the investment and reading a few horror stories. Working with Russ was definitely a pleasure and I could not have been happier with my choice. 1) He was super responsive. I'd text him on the weekends, in the evenings, throughout the day and there was always a prompt response. 2) Negotiation skills. In a difficult market for buyers, Russ was able to convince the seller to give us a discount for repairs. I did not even think this would be within the realm of possibility in the Bay Area 3) Read on the market. Russ' read on the market was often times correct. 4) Process management. We had a a lot of issues emerge throughout the process due to my wife's financial position and investments. Russ was able to buy us the necessary time and offer up solutions to resolve these challenges. 5) Contacts. Russ has some amazing contacts that are just as responsive and do great work. My brother got contacts for Russ to expand his home. In the end we ended up with a beautiful home. The process was stressful, but Russ made it much more palatable than it otherwise would have been. When it comes time for us to sell our home and move to another, there is no question that I will be picking up the phone to call Russ.

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $675K in Downtown, San Jose, CA.

Russ is the man. I thought buying a home was going to be a nightmare, with Russ is was truly a fantastic experience. From the moment I clicked his listing on Zillow, he was prompt, called me within 5 minutes, he asked me a few questions to get an idea of where I was in my process and to get an idea of what I was looking for. I was just exploring the idea of buying a house, but 1 month later I was moving into my dream house. First off, Russ is just a great guy. We clicked really well, he listened to what I was looking for, got to know me personally, and drove me around to 12 places our first meeting in his Tesla Model S (I work there so that was icing on the cake!). He helped me self discover what I really wanted, then helped me go after it. He was always available by phone, text and email, even late at night. I put in 2 offers initially and he helped guide me every step of the way, not pressuring me, getting me out of the bidding war that the other Realtor was trying to play. 3rd time was the charm. I saw a listing go up on a Thursday at 11am on Redfin. I texted it to Russ, he immediately asked if I'd like him to pick him up to check it out at lunch. I couldn't get away from but I told him I wanted it. So, he tells me he's going to drive over there right now, take a video of the place and send it to me, and If I like it we can take it from there. I was pleasantly surprised, I loved it. So we put an offer together and submitted the next morning. We got a counter and I accepted that evening. Soon after a competing bid came in $30K above mine but the way Russ positioned my offer, it was more attractive to the seller. I went to see the place in person myself Saturday morning before they even held the open house, and I pushed the docusign button while in the house. SOLD! Time to celebrate - He took me out to my favorite karaoke bar when I got the keys and I made a new friend! I even had an issue with my dishwasher the first week I was there and he made a call, had his guy come out and fix it free of charge! He helped me through the whole escrow and loan process which is a terrible system. With Russ's expertise he was able to answer every little question I had. He is incredibly smart and knowledgeable. He used to work in finance in SF for years, but his personality is much better used in the field of real estate. I would seriously recommend Russ to my friends and family when they are looking at buying a house. You'll never customer service this good anywhere. Russ is seriously a rare find in the sea of notoriously terrible Realtors.  More Less

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $1.1M in Almaden Valley, San Jose, CA.

Hands down one of the best real estate experiences - ever! Russ and his team (aka Team Russ) were solid partners during the prep and sale of our home in the Cambrian Area of San Jose. We interviewed several realtors and chose Russ due to his reputation, his solid marketing plan, and keen understanding of "how to sell." Russ is patient, detail oriented, is very easy to deal with, and is there to help the seller every step of the way. Team Russ was ready to help with referrals for professional services (cleaning, painting, staging). Partnering with Russ was one of the best decisions that we made- and we will be repeat partners with Russ for our next home. Kudos to Team Russ (Russ, Parker, Juliann) for a job well done!  More Less
