Down to Earth, Down to Business
I am the Designated Broker for RE/MAX Professionals and team leader of The Russo Team. I also work with prospective sellers and negotiate contracts. I have been a REALTOR® since 1981, joined RE/MAX in 1995, and am now the co-owner of six RE/MAX Professionals office locations. I have chosen real estate as my career, and my clients are my top priority.
Over the years, I have served the West Maricopa County Regional Association of Realtors (WeMAR) in a variety of roles, including President. I am originally from upstate New York, and came to Arizona in 1977. My daughter, Lianne, was born prematurely in 1987 and spent her first few months of life in the hospital. This made me realize the importance of community involvement, so for many years, I volunteered weekly at the Phoenix Children's Hospital. In 2010, I participated in the 60 mile "Walk for the Cure" to raise money for the Susan G. Komen Foundation. I am a passionate supporter of the Children's Miracle Network and Susan G. Komen. In my free time, I enjoy going to local concerts, listening to music, and tinkering around the house.
