My husband and I had the pleasure of having Russ as our agent in purchasing our first home in Los Angeles, which if anyone knows anything about LA real estate, the process can be a bit challenging, to say the least. Russ was so incredibly knowledgable about the market and process and provided us with insight each step of the way. We started looking with Russ in mid January and were intent on moving by 3/31, since our lease was going to be up. I honestly never thought it would be possible to find something and close that fast, especially with how picky my husband and I were… But Russ stayed on top of it – constantly listening to our feedback, what was important to us and finding us new listings to go see that were within our budget. When we found the place we both loved, he dropped everything to meet us and get the offer out for us. He did all the heavy lifting with the negotiation w/ the listing agent, the development company and all the paperwork involved – and managed to get our offer accepted AND we closed in 21 days!!! Russ is such a great agent and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy (or sell) in LA.
