Russell was first licensed in 1979 as a Real Estate Salesperson in the state of Texas. After a successful career start in New Home Sales in the cities of Houston & Austin Russell relocated to San Diego (1986) for better career opportunities. Russell quickly obtained his California Real Estate Salesperson license and began practicing Re-sale Real Estate in the Mission Hills neighborhood with First Mission Properties. He diversified his sales experience by working with not only homeowners & buyers but with several builders seeking land for small developments. Russell also became knowledgeable of Commercial properties while serving 11 years on the Mission Hills Business Association. Land use & development knowledge was further enhanced by Russell's 8 yrs. of serving on the Uptown Planners Board of Directors. Eventually First Mission Properties was sold to Prudential CA Realty in 1995; however, Russell elected to stay on with Prudential CA and continue his practice in Mission Hills & briefly in Pt. Loma. With the emergence of Berkshire Hathaway Home Services (CA Properties) Russell is excited to be rebranded with the new affiliation that took place in Sept. of 2013. With over 29 years of service in the Metro San Diego area Russell is highly respected amongst his peers, friends & customers while obatining numerous sales & service awards. Today he will gladly weclome your call for assistance & provide the most professional service should you have a real estate need, large or small!
