Russ was recommended by a friend of ours who used Russ to buy his home a few years back. We wanted to buy downriver, but we were worried that Russ would not go that far. We were so happy that Russ was able to show us houses late at night, on Saturdays and Sundays. Whenever we need to go see a home, Russ worked it out in his schedule to make time for us. We were scared of the home buying process. We had heard stories about inspection problems, appraisal problems and mortgage issues from our friends. It seemed like our friends had all sorts of problems buying our home. With Russ we never had a problem at all. His team of mortgage people and inspectors were great. Russ stayed on top of the mortgage lender and headed off the issues before they became a problem to us. We had several concerns with the home inspection but Russ’ negotiation skills helped us get what we wanted. If you are going to buy a home anywhere in the Metro area I would say call Russ. He works all of Metro Detroit and he will treat you like you were an old friend.
I first started looking at real estate listings online nearly a year ago, but at first I thought I´d never really buy one. I hadn´t been paying attention and thought I still couldn´t afford to buy a place. I also had no experience in buying a home and I wanted to make sure I knew what I was doing before I bought. For most questions I would search online, the topic had been discussed on Russ´ blog. Not only that, he was local. Over the summer, I finally decided to start physically looking at houses and Russ was the only choice.
My preferred method of contact was email and he always responded in a timely fashion. He was patient with this first-time home buyer, and worked with me through my initial bid process. I was surprised when they accepted the bid! The transaction went smoothly, with Russ patiently answering any questions and concerns I had. From the first time we looked at houses to the closing was exactly one month. I´ve been here five months now and people still marvel at what I got for the price I paid. When I requested a plumber, he was able to provide one was lived close by and was economical.
Thanks for everything, Russ.

A year ago my husband and I started looking for a house with the help of Russ Ravary. We thought this search would take a long time. With the technology we had available we were successful after 3 months. It took us over a year to find the house the last house we bought. We know what we wanted exactly. Russ used the Internet and e-mail to keep us up to date on the houses that had just gone on the market, the length of time they were on the market, and all the public record data. I never thought I would have a house on a lake with all these features.
My biggest obstacle was putting our house up for sale. When we put the bid on the new house and it was accepted, Russ said it was time to put the old “For Sale” sign up. I wasn’t ready! First we hadn’t told any of our neighbors, second we weren’t quite done putting the finishing touches on the house and third we were going on vacation and I didn’t want people in the house while we were gone.
It took over a week for me to be convinced that this was the right thing to do. After several talks at our kitchen table I said yes. Russ knew the faster we got the house up for sale in the spring the better our chances were to sell it. The sign went up the day after we left for vacation. I was worried on Sunday because that was the first (and only) Open House. On Saturday we were on our way to the airport to come home, Russ called us with the news…there was a bid on the house! I couldn’t believe it the house was sold in a week!!!! Homes in our market were taking over six months to sell.
People always ask what we did to sell the house so quickly. My answer is to trust your Sales Agent. He/she is in this business and deals with it every day so you need to trust his/her expertise. Some of the advice we got was to get rid of the clutter, make it less personal and the big one remove the flowered wallpaper. Russ was forthright in giving advice on how to make the home more saleable. Sometimes I did not like what Russ had to say about the house, but we did what he said. And it worked. We sold it in 7 days for 97% of the selling price. It was a combination of luck and doing the rights things to get the home ready for sale. Russ came through 3 times telling us what to do.
Luckily, I (we) listened to what Russ say. I’m so grateful for everything he did for us, we are now enjoying our new home…sorry Russ for making you a little crazy!
I was a young single woman that had never bought a home before. One of my co-workers who has bought and sold homes with Russ recommended him. I wanted an updated home in a good community that did not have a lot of problems or that was going to be a money pit. I wanted to stay in a specific price range too. Russ never pushed me to buy any home. He knew I could afford a higher price home, but he never tried to get me to buy a more expensive home even though it would have been easier to find the updated home I wanted. We found the home that fits me and I love it. If you need a realtor that will look out for you I say call Russ.
My Husband and I have been in our new home for about a year now and we both feel that it would not have been possible without your help. We wanted to write and let you know that we appreciate everything you have done for us. I want to thank you for showing us around and negotiating to help us get an excellent home that meets all of my needs. I was impressed with your knowledge of the neighborhoods, schools, businesses, parks, recreation, restaurants and home prices. You are my #1 Realtor and I will recommend you to my family, friends and any one else who need to buy or sell real estate.

Russ is the best real state agent you can find in this area. He has helped me twice to buy a home. For my first home we spent almost 6 months looking for something me and my family liked. Russ kept showing us as many properties we liked without getting PUSHY. He never tried to influence our decision to buy a particular property but was always there to help us make a right decision. He showed professionalism, expertise and excellent knowledge of the area – Bloomfield Hills, West Bloomfield, Troy, Rochester Hills and everywhere else. For my second house as well he quickly became available and helped us search our new home. Russ also helped us sell the first house and walked us through the entire process really well. He did all the advertisement, photos, write-up and everything it takes to sell a house. He even mopped my floor and helped us in getting it painted. Did I mention, I wasn’t even in Michigan when Russ helped us sell the house? Like I said, if you are in the area looking for your next house or planning to sell, give a call to Russ…without any doubts.
My husband and I chose Russ to be our real estate agent after a friend highly recommended him. We were moving here from Canada and only had a few days to look at homes. When we came in to town, Russ went far above the call of duty. He had thoroughly planned our 2 days and had numerous homes lined up for us to view. After talking to us briefly and asking us a few questions before our arrival, he new exactly what types of homes would be ideal for us. After searching for a short time he found the perfect home for us.
After the sale, Russ even met our painters, carpet cleaners and home inspector at our new home since we were still out of town. He also gave us detailed lists of available utility companies, schools, cable services, cleaning companies, house cleaners, fun things to do and wonderful restaurants in the area. Russ made the entire experience enjoyable and easy. He has a laid back, genuine personality and my entire family felt comfortable with him immediately. He feels like a friend not just our real estate agent.
I would HIGHLY recommend Russ to anyone with complete confidence.
“I was looking for a realtor and not knowing anyone in the business, I looked online. I heard from several people, but it was Russ with his no-nonsense approach that sold me. I asked what my first step should be and Russ stated immediately that I needed to get pre-qualified before looking at any properties. Great advice! After receiving my pre-qualification letter, Russ and I looked at many properties. As a first-time home buyer my knowledge was very limited, but Russ was more than willing to advise me on my best plan of action. We looked at many properties together and Russ was always on time; most of the time early for our appointments. He made my first experience of buying a home stress-free. If anyone asks me “Can you recommend a good realtor?” My answer would be, “Yes. Russ Ravary.”
Russ was kind and helpful. We had not bought a house in over 40 years so we had no idea what was in store for us.
After reading the testimonials on Russ’s website, we gave him a call. We’d had a bad experience with a previous realtor, so we were cautious. But it turned out to be one of the best decisions we ever made.
He answered all our questions and even worked around our schedules to show us houses. As busy as Russ can be, he always returned our calls.
Even when we decided to put the search on hold for almost a year, Russ waited patiently for us to be ready. He told us that when we were ready again, he’d be ready to help.
Bottom line, Russ is a very good realtor who goes above and beyond what you expect. Thank you Russ for everything! We and our dogs love our new home! Frank and Maria Botello
