Sold a Mobile / Manufactured home in 2014 for approximately $100K in Red Bluff, CA.
We were so grateful having John Russo handle the sale of our elder mothers property. To this day, I have not met John (my brother did after John got an offer/acceptance on the property). We live in Arkansas and found him (along with other realtors) on Zillow. Based on Zillow reviews, we contacted three realtors in the area to give us price quotes, and John was by far the most responsive.
John always replied to us quickly with questions, he really promoted the property well. He was incredibly easy to work with in what was an incredibly complex sale (underwater, two liens, etc.).
My mother was very comfortable with John and liked him a lot.
I can highly recommend John, and I would use John Russo again in a "heartbeat" if we had any more land to sell in California. Thank you, John!!
Sold a home in 2014 in Honcut, Rackerby, CA 95966.
After attempting to contact other agents in the area with slow to no response I came across John Russo to list my property. He was always quick to respond and literally walked the extra mile to get the lot photographed and on the market. Within only a few days we had an accepted offer. John is not your average real estate agent. He defines PROFESSIONAL and I would HIGHLY recommend him for all of your real estate needs. I would definitely work with john again when buying or selling in the area.
Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $50K in Oroville, CA.
I spoke with John in late December regarding the sale of my mother-in-law's home. We made arrangements for him to see the property on January 11th. That afternoon we gave John the go ahead to list the property for the full appraised value. On the 15th we received a call from John that we had a full price cash offer on the home. The escrow closed on January 22nd.
We couldn't be more pleased with the way John handled this sale - keeping in touch with us every step of the way - making sure we were fully informed of what was taking place.
We highly recommend John Russo to anyone looking to sell or buy property in the Oroville/Chico area.
Sold a home in 2014 in Rosewood, Paynes Creek, CA 96080.
With only one other time in my 59yrs of trying to sell a house that left me to say the least highly disappointed. The thought of ever going through the process again, left me saying to myself NEVER. So when it came time to sell our rental that had been my home for 35 years, I remembered a letter that was sent to me with the promise that he could sell my house. To myself I said sure they all say that. But I keep the letter. Not quite sure what there was about the letter it was direct to the point with a strong feel of honesty. So I picked up the phone and made a call to a person I had never meet and truly thought I would not get a call back and if I did it would be days or maybe weeks. To my surprise John had returned my call not long after me leaving my phone number. John Russo has from the first time I spoke to him has guided and helped me to selling my house. John has answered all my concerns. My home had a sign, flyers and on MLS in one week. The house was shown in just days and is now pending sale. I do know that in all things there is timing but with out John's professional business since I know in my heart this would not have happened. I look forward to the closing of this home which I had lived in for 35 years John has made this step in my live easier to take. A big John Russo you matter I thank you for all your hard work and care in the process of selling a big part of my life.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $175K in Oroville, CA.
John is always willing to show properties at my convenience, he always returns phone calls and responds right away. When you stumble across an issue with the lenders and are ready to give up, John is very encouraging. I would reccommed John to anyone looking for a real estate agent.

John was amazing all the way throught he process of looking for a home and closing the deal. He made himself available late in the afternoon and on Saturdays. Because both my husband and I work full-time, I was afraid that we would have a tough time getting into any homes that we wanted to look at, but John made things work for us. He listened to what we wanted in a home and even though we were looking for an owner finance, he knew of another agents listing and got us in that home right away. AND!! Even though the home we were buying was in a high-risk fire area, he worked hard at finding an insurance company that would cover our home, went with us to set up the homeowners policy, and made sure that we would be 'taken care of'. He also accompanied us when we met with the title agency when we closed. Simply put, John was a hard worker, prompt, professional, and fun to work with. You just don't find this kind of person or real estate agent these days!
I first contacted John Russo a few weeks ago because i read his other reviews and this intrigued me to call him. he has shown us a couple houses so far and we hope to find a home soon.he is very professional and has great customer service skills, he was not pushy at all which is something that i really appreciated.
