Russ was born and raised on the Westside of Los Angeles. Parents are high school sweethearts who are still married (gotta love them) from Fairfax High. After graduation from UCLA, he went into Hollywood to become an agent. Worked at the Christopher Nassif Agency in commercial/tv/film. Eventually landed the desk of one of the music industries biggest music agents at Creative Artists Agency. A big love of Russ’s is music. (who can play bass and drums)
After being a starving assistant for several years he decided to try another one of his loves: Cars.
Worked in the automotive industry, from salesperson to sales manager. Exceeded the team goals and inspired others to make something of themselves.
Russ wanted to take his hard work and dedication into another passion of his: Real Estate and Design. His mother made him spend many years at the Blue Whale, going up and down 3rd St to antique and furniture stores while redesigning the house. It was only a natural fit to bring his early years of design and his love of making people happy into making it into a career. As an agent who's knowledgable in this local area, Russ brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate here. It's not the same everywhere, so you need someone you can trust for up-to-date information. Russ is eager to serve you and looks forward to earning your business. To make his clients happy and to build lifelong relationships with them is his pride and joy.
If you can’t find Russ on the street looking for real estate investments, gathering market data or meeting with clients he is easily found on the golf course playing with friends for a dollar or maybe two.
