What Clients Say About Whitney Russell

“I have worked with Whitney in 3 home buying adventures. I say adventures because Whitney is a hoot! She’s professional, funny, easy to work with, and low pressure. I will continue to refer and use Whitney. If you’re smart, you’ll do the same! ”

“Whitney was the absolute best! She made the selling process unbelievably easy and I felt comfortable and at ease with her throughout the whole process. She is extremely knowledgeable of the area that I sold my house in. Not to mention that she is so funny and very personable. I will be looking to buy/sell with her in the future.”

— Katie Wilson

“I had a great time looking for homes with Whitney. She was very quick to respond to my questions both during the process and after closing. Whitney is very knowledgeable about the area, and helped me find and put in an offer on my house only a week after meeting with her. She made the process fun, and less stressful. I would absolutely recommend Whitney! ”

— Eve Doyle

“Whitney was amazing to work with. She becomes a great friend looking out for your best interest from putting in the offer, to suggesting contractors, excellent inspectors and walking you through the process, especially for us as first time home buyers! And she loves her dogs as much as I do! We can't wait to invite her and show her what we've done with our new home!!!”
