Prior to earning his real estate license, Russell has worked in securities, specializing in commodities, stocks, and mutual funds. His background in finance gives him firsthand knowledge of reading investments and understanding shifts in the market. Russell can sit down with a client, regardless of their goals, and walk them through the benefits of their investment, and since he has an understanding of the cost of borrowing money he is able to help his clients find the right property for them, and also determine the best finance options, too. "Helping people is my favorite aspect of real estate, and business in general", says Russell. "I like finding that ‘diamond in the rough’ for my clients, where a home checks off all the boxes and is exactly what they are looking for". In order to best help his clients, Russell is a steadfast believer in building a solid foundation of trust. Honesty and a sincere approach to client relationship building, creates instant credibility and a connection with others. Buying a home is the biggest investment most people make in their lives. Because of the magnitude of the decision, it is imperative that he and his clients trust each other, and they know that their interests are his number one concern. Russell served in the United States Marine Corps for 6 ½ years and his time in the Marines has instilled demonstrable leadership qualities that he still proudly display to this day. Traits learned such as justice, dependability, judgment, initiative, integrity, loyalty, knowledge, unselfishness, bearing, enthusiasm, tact, and endurance, are important qualities in a Marine, as well as a real estate agent. Understanding how to work with people on a fundamental level, while working toward accomplishing their goals with them, will be paramount to Russell's success as a REALTOR®.
