As a real estate agent who’s an expert in the Sacramento and Sierra Foothill areas, he brings a wealth of realty knowledge about buying and selling local real estate.

Russ specializes in residential resale, new home purchases, short sales and first-time homebuyer representation— here are a few points regarding the process:
Find Your Next Home
You need someone who knows your target area inside and out! Russ has lived in Sacramento since 1982 and can work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter – not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home.
Sell Your Home
When it’s time to move, you need someone who will market your home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. Russ can take care of everything you need, from start to close.
Consult on Home Selling Tactics
Oftentimes buyers don’t visualize living in your home the way you do. Russ can make your home attractive to its ideal audience – which can help you get top dollar. Things, like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls, can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that’s sold fast.
