John was a pleasure to work with and was thorough and knowledgeable from beginning to end. I am an experienced home buyer/seller but from a southern state so when I moved to Michigan I needed someone who knew the ins and outs of northern homes as well as had a deep knowledge of the greater Ann Arbor real estate market. John brought all those things and more to the table. He was very collaborative and was great to view listings with, because he paid attention to all the details that I wasn't so good about, including roofs, windows and air handlers. I found his knowledge of the local real estate market and it's various little pockets in and around Ann Arbor to be can tell that he has lived and done real estate in the area for a while! I would love to be able to do business with him again down the road and have already recommended him to several friends and co-workers.

John was very professional and thorough throughout the process of selling the family home. From the beginning when he first spoke with us about what our expectations were to the very end when closing occurred he was always there to provide advice when asked for. His initial analysis of the value and comparisons with recent sales in the neighborhood was spot on. He provided a comprehensive binder of supporting data as well as an outline of the probable schedule of steps in the process and the services that he would provide with marketing efforts and adverstising. He acted as an advocate with the buyer's agent to resolve any hiccups along the way and was able to engage with specialists to take care of problems that needed resolutions. I highly recommend him.

John was extremely patient with me. He guided me through the entire process from pre-approval to closing to final walkthrough and getting the keys. John was extremely helpful. I am a first time home buyer, and John let me know his opinion of each house, what the surrounding area is like and then when it came time to make an offer, he helped me stay financially secure while also being competitive. He showed me ~30-40 homes without ever making me feel pressured to buy one, and when COVID hit and my I tweets dwindled, John kept me in mind for houses he thought I might be interested in. At the end of the day, John was an overall spectacular realtor and I highly recommend him to everyone and definitely plan to use him in the future.

John was a great asset in the purchase of my new home. He truly went above and beyond while having my best interests at heart. I have not purchased a home in 12 years and was not really sure what changed. John was great in walking me through the process. He gave recommendations for a mortgage consultant, attorney, and inspectors that were all top notch and thorough. He was excellent at pointing out positive and negative aspects of properties and what that would mean for the long-term. He even took time to meet with inspectors when my difficult work schedule would not allow. He was also great at guiding me to put together a deal that would win the house without leaving money on the table. I will be recommending John to anyone I know buying a house while also using him in the future should I find myself house shopping again.

John was incredibly accommodating for everything my partner and I needed. My partner and I had quite a few requirements and John was able to masterfully find several houses that fit everything we needed until we found an amazing house that we are happy to call our home now!

I would highly recommend you contact John. I took my time (apx. 10 months) to find a home that fit my budget and expectations and John was patient and always in contact throughout the lulls and peaks of the market and my interest level. He always went or offered to go the extra mile to get things done or to help move things along. Whether it came to viewing a home as soon as I showed interest (we viewed a handful in total), providing superbly detailed information about homes I was interested in, informing me about the home buying process and real estate in general, John was always a resource I would go to and he would always reply promptly. The house I chose was a FSBO (For Sale by Owner) which came with some differences that I didn't know about but John managed everything, provided electronic documents quickly, all in the tough market that is the greater Ann Arbor area. John will truly be your partner in the long home buying process and that is why you should reach out to him!

John's expertise in buying and selling a home is second to none. John handled the purchase of my new home, and after move in, the sale of my previous home. He is extremely thorough, detail-oriented, conscientious, responsive, professional, and easy to establish a rapport with. People typically buy and/or sell a home so infrequently that it is imperative to have a reliable realtor to provide expertise guidance through the process. That's exactly what John provides, and I will continue to recommend him to anyone I know wishing to buy or sell. I'd use his services again in a heartbeat.

As first-time home buyers, my partner and I would have gone insane if it hadn't been for John. Throughout the process, John's expertise, patience, and kindness kept us going when we were faced with the unexpected. The first offer we made fell through because the seller breached the contract a week before closing, but John helped us get our appraisal and inspection money back. This was very scary for us, but John's persistence and communication was extremely reassuring. On the home we finally purchased, John negotiated a sale price under the listing price and under the appraisal amount--in a seller's market! He also held firm with the seller's agent to ensure that very important safety issues found during the inspection were handled by the sellers before we moved in. We can't recommend John enough. He is a great man, an excellent agent, and a kind person. Thanks, John!

John went above and beyond helping me get into my new home. He was able to ensure the contract was followed through and helped every step of the way. Highly recommended.

We had an absolutely wonderful experience with our agent, John Russell. For starters, he arranged for a colleague to show us homes while he was out of the country on vacation. We were first-time homebuyers so we had a lot of questions. John always responded promptly and walked us through every step. He noticed things in homes we saw that we would have overlooked. When it was time to put in our offer, he helped us negotiate a price under the listing price even though the owner had other offers. The whole process was very smooth and we felt we were in good hands the entire time.

If you are a first-time home buyer, John is the perfect realtor for you! We had no prior knowledge of the house buying process and he helped us the whole way through! We had an FHA loan and the seller of the house did not want to allow that type of loan, but John convinced them to accept it! He also helped us save money on inspections without skipping any inspection steps. It was a time consuming process, but he made us feel very comfortable the entire time. We trusted John to negotiate in our best interests and he flourished! My friend is actually looking at houses right now and I'm definitely going to hook her up with John's business card because he's the best in the biz! Did I also mention it only took about two and a half months to buy our dream home because of him? He is amazing!

No one could have worked as hard as John worked for us throughout the entire process. We had a couple of hiccups as the process went along but John was there to help us through to a successful sale. Highly recommended!
