The Word on the Street
Raymond made our first time rental experience as pleasant as he could. In every step of the process he made the extra effort to ensure that we understood what we were getting into and what to expect. he’s positive, passionate and highly knowledgeable about his profession. he was accommodating to our busy work schedules and very responsive. We also find it very helpful and assuring that real estate is his full time profession. Though this transaction was not the smoothest due to third party difficulties he was able to guide us in the right direction to make the right decision. His honest input quickly earned our trust which is important when you are renting your first apt. in the big apple. We would highly recommend Raymond to anyone in need of a good real estate agent and will definitely utilize his services in the future.
I’m writing this review with a huge amount of happiness — I can easily give a perfect review for Raymond Russell. If you’re buying, here’s what to expect: Raymond will sit down with you and conduct a friendly interview on what you want to buy. Raymond will recommend fantastic experts as part of your buying team: home insurance, lawyers, and mortgage lenders. The only recommendation we did not use was the home inspector due to scheduling and our own prior use. EVERY recommendation Raymond gives is a “tried and true” team member. They are all excellent. Raymond is honest and tells you what you need to hear. He delivers bad news with such friendly skill and diplomacy, that you can’t help but move forward with a better feeling instead of a negative one. He is such an excellent advocate. I highly, highly recommend him. He has a great communication style.
Raymond is amazing! I am not even sure how I should begin singing his praises. First of all, he answers his phone when you call him so you don't have to play phone tag. Second, he is as down to earth as it gets for a broker. There is no hard sell. He is more interested in helping you find the apartment that you love than in collecting his commission. He is extremely personable and patient; he takes the time to listen to the prerequisites for your ideal apartment. Furthermore, he does not waste your time, as a customer who works 8:00am till 6/7:00pm every day, I truly appreciate when someone is direct and gives me all the facts up front. I would highly recommend Raymond. Just give him a call, tell him what you're looking for and he will definitely help you find it.
