What Clients Say About Russ Ravary...
Russ was a fantastic realtor. After meeting Russ on the lake, he helped me buy and sell two homes. I was going to list my home in Waterford so I called Russ over. I asked what I should do at the lowest cost, and the easiest way to get top dollar. The house looked great after I did everything. The house sold quickly and I got asking price. Once Waterford was under contract Russ called me when he saw lakefront homes that he thought we would like. After a few showings we found our Dream home! Its very impressive to find an agent today that doesn't just send links and hope you call them. He didn't rush me or push me to by a house. Now we have a lake home with a big lot, great view, with lots of storage.
Sold our starter home in Livonia in 2015, and sold our rental condo in Livonia in 2016. Have worked with Russ for years, and in fact, bought that starter home using him in 2008. Always professional, courteous, punctual, and incredibly knowledgeable. Russ goes out of his way to make sure you have all the information you need to buy or sell a home, as well as expert advice during the offer process. I would recommend Russ to anyone looking to buy or sell a home, and will only work with Russ in the future as well.
Russ was an excellent real estate agent. I really wanted to be near a downtown area. In either Plymouth or Northville and I had a budget I didn't want to go over. I knew what I wanted so we saw houses that were not what fit me. He was very patient and never rushed me. He took me to as many houses as I wanted to see. We found a great house with lots of room and that was updated too. It was a good price too. Now 8 years later it is gone up tremendously in value. I would recommend Russ to anybody that is looking to buy in the Metro Detroit area.
Russ was very helpful during the entire process. He went through our home with us and told us how we should arrange things and what to remove so that it would show well. He had a frank discussion of pricing with us and made suggestions, but always did as we asked and was never pushy. Having never sold a house before, he walked us through what we should expect and explained fees and processes with us. He took very clear and flattering pictures of our house for the listing. He was always very prompt with communication and answered any questions we had. We had to move out of the state before closing, and Russ kept us in the loop very well. He advised us and guided us during the whole process and made the entire thing much less stressful on us than it could have been. We really appreciated Russ's knowledge and experience, and I would recommend him as a seller's agent.
Russ was an excellent realtor. I am a senior and haven't sold a house in many many years. Russ helped me with the city inspections. He even came down and meet the city inspectors. He helped me find contractors to fix the items that needed to be fixed. We sold the house quickly for a great price too. I would highly recommend Russ to any senior looking to make a move. He made my move so easy.
When I was a first time home buyer in 2012 I was new to the in's and out's of real estate. Russ took all my questions, concerns, and frustrations with the home buying process and made me feel comfortable. In 2015 when we decided to sell our house Russ was the first person we called. Our house wasn't an easy sell due to the size, however Russ was able to get us a great offer and made sure the process was smooth from start to finish. I always recommend Russ to anyone going through the home buying process because of his knowledge and professionalism. Once you buy or sell with Russ you become part of his Real Estate family and does everything he can to help make your buying/selling experience an enjoyable one.
The service provided to us by our realtor Russ Ravary was simply outstanding. Not only did Russ help us find our dream home for a great price, but he also sold our house for top dollar in less than three days! The professionalism, flexibility, & overall quality of service provided by Russ far exceeded every expectation we had. If you want a realtor that truly cares about the customer, operates with integrity, & will work diligently to ensure all of your needs are meant then we strongly recommend you contact Russ. After closing he even gave us a kayak to use on our new lake! Thank you for making our dream come true!
Russ listed and helped me get a vacant lot on a busy road sold. He took the time to market the lot to builders and the general public. It sold in a reasonable time. I would consider using Russ's service again to sell or buy!
Russ helped sell my home within a few weeks of it being on the market. Not only was he able to sell it quick he was able to get the amount that I was asking. Russ also helped me purchase my new home. He met with us to review our wants and needs. And by the evening he was send us home to rank and view on his website. By the following day he had already schedule home viewing based off your ranking. We viewed several homes. Although we were picky Russ always remained professional and responsive. After a few week of this Russ call me one day and said he had a home he would like us to visit. We did and I'm proud to say that we purchased that home and have been living in there happily since August. I have and will continue to refer Russ to my friends and family.
Russ was an exceptional realtor. We were not sure we really wanted to move so Russ took us around to several Oakland County Lakes and explained about the different lakes. We found a lakefront home we really loved and put in an offer. The sellers got another offer and tried to get out of the deal. Russ was able to negotiate and keep the deal together. He held the seller's feet to the fire and we got the home we wanted. I would recommend Russ to anybody that needs a Metro Detroit realtor that knows not only the local communities but also the local lakes.
Russ helped us buy our dream house earlier this year! He was great! Friendly, helpful and to the point. He answered questions via text, email or phone promptly and didn't shy away from harsh critiques of properties when needed. He made the whole process effortless and even gave us tips about renting our previous home. Would definitely use again and recommend!
Russ is a excellent realtor and professional in every way. He managed the sale of our house from preparing it to look as good as possible before any showings to the close. He also recommended a handyman who completed all of the projects required at a very reasonable cost. He also managed all of the buyers concerns throughout the process so that the closing was on time and went very smoothly. I highly recommend Russ to anyone making a real estate transaction.
Never selling a home before, I needed help with the process. Russ was always available to help with any questions or concerns I had. Gave great suggestions on how to help sell the house and kept reassuring me the process would go well and quickly. He was right in less than a week I had 5 offers and had sold the house. I would recommend Russ to anyone buying or selling a home, he is very personable and professional from beginning to end.
Very reliable and efficient realtor. The home was vacant and we had complete trust in Russ. He made sure people were respectful of property and sold it in a week. 5 Star rating
A friend of mine recommend that I talk to Russ about buying a home. I'm real glad I did. Buying my first house was easy and couldn't of done it without the help of Russ.
Russ was a monumental help for my wife and I when we bought our first home! He went out of his way to help us with all of the first time home buyer questions and was always available. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking to buy. As we have only purchased a home and not sold one I can only speak to that aspect, but once (if) we plan to move, I know who to call!
Russ was an awesome Realtor. We were first time home buyers so we were a little unsure of what to do, or what to look for when buying a home. Matt, a friend of mine had bought a house through Russ before and recommended Russ so we thought we would give him a try. We wanted to be near family, friends, and work so it limited the number of cities we wanted to live in. We wanted a good city with good schools and easy highway access, too. Most of all we wanted an updated home that we would not have to spend thousands of dollars to get it the way we wanted. Russ was patient and showed us every house we wanted to see which is great because some realtors are so pushy. He never pushed us to buy. We had the freedom to choose the house we wanted. Russ helped us put together a solid offer so we got the newer home we wanted. We are loving our home and have made it our own. Russ is an awesome Realtor and I would call him and recommend him to any of my friends and co-workers.
Russ recently helped me and my family find the perfect home. He was very responsive to our questions and emails. He worked around our schedules when setting up home visits. To sum it up Russ was very professional and knowledgeable. I would recommend him to my family and friends.
We highly recommend Russ to help you in your home buying and selling process. He is very professional, knowledgeable, helpful and easy to work with. He initially came by the house we were selling and took a tour and let us know what he thought would help in the sale our home. We listened to his advice and received three full price offers the same day it went on the market. Needless to say we were elated. He also worked hard to help us find our dream home and made the overall process very easy for us. Anytime we had questions, he was very quick to get back with us and even went out of his way to make sure things went as smooth as possible. My husband and I cannot say enough great things about Russ. If you take his advice, you will not be sorry. We will definitely be recommending him to anyone we know who is looking to buy or sell their home.
Russ was a tremendous help in finding us a home that was within our budget. He was patient, considering we didn't really know what we wanted and he made excellent recommendations until we found one we liked and that worked for us. He always made us feel like we were the only people he was working with. This is our first home purchase and Russ is someone I will recommend as well as use again when it is time to purchase another home. Thanks for your help Russ! You made the process so easy.
Russ was extremely knowledgeable in helping us find a home on the lake. He knew all the areas and had good information on the lakes we visited. He went above and beyond just sending us the current listings. He also found us listings and previewed the homes to see if they fit our criteria. He spent many hours with us and we found the perfect home because of his attention to detail. We highly recommend him to our friends and family.
Russ was kind and helpful. We had not bought a house in over 40 years so we had no idea what was in store for us.After reading the testimonials on Russ's website, we gave him a call. We'd had a bad experience with a previous realtor, so we were cautious. But it turned out to be one of the best decisions we ever made.He answered all our questions and even worked around our schedules to show us houses. As busy as Russ can be, he always returned our calls.Even when we decided to put the search on hold for almost a year, Russ waited patiently for us to be ready. He told us that when we were ready again, he'd be ready to help.Bottom line, Russ is a very good realtor who goes above and beyond what you expect. Thank you Russ for everything! We and our dogs love our new home!
I recently bought a new home through Russ. I called him and told him what me and my Husband were looking for. He called me back in a few hours and had 10 houses for us to go look at. He knows his business very well. We were looking at foreclosures so some of them where pretty bad, but Russ knew what to look for and when it was a good buy. Thankfully because of Russ, my family and I have been in our new home for 6 months and we couldn't be happier. Russ bent over backwards for me and made me feel like family. He is the only person I will ever buy and sell houses through and I recommend him to anyone I can.
Relocating to Michigan from Texas this past summer (2009) was a really big decision for our family. Of course, the most stressful part of a move is deciding not only where you want to live, but finding a house that fits into your price range and also fits your family's personality. With my husband traveling internationally for work and a child wrapping up the school year, we had only a specific time frame that allowed us to visit Michigan for house-hunting. One of my husband's work colleagues referred us Russ, and we contacted him to start our search. The next day, Russ sent us lists of homes that fit our criteria and followed up with weekly updates, allowing us to develop a list of homes that we wanted to see during our house-hunting trip. Russ is a consummate professional - his knowledge of the real estate in the Detroit Metro area is impressive! He also knows about schools, places of worship, things to do in particular areas...he really provided us with so much information that we really felt comfortable about our move. Russ makes the effort to understand his clients very well...he knew right away whether we like a home or not, he paid attention to the details we liked, and also made great suggestions.When we arrived in Michigan, Russ had made all the appointments and after looking for a couple of days, we narrowed our search down to our top 6 homes. We made an offer on our favorite, which wasn't successful. But within hours, Russ called to say that a home we had seen ( but had been a little out of our price range) was now a short sale - and if we were still interested. Through his expertise, we managed to get our dream house right before our daughter started her new school. Russ stayed in touch with us through every aspect of the transaction and kept us updated on all details. We could also count on Russ for referrals to professionals such as plumbers, electricians, etc. for a few renovations we've done since moving in. He is truly a treasure-trove of knowledge and his input should be trusted - he knows what he is talking about.I'm a picky person. My husband is a stickler for detail. Our move was time-critical. But Russ was so great to work with because he understood that about us and worked so hard to get us into a home that we truly love. We can't thank him enough!
Russ Ravary should play the lead role on your home buying team*. Russ is a workaholic: he's going to be at the showing twenty minutes early, he's going to have a folder of comparables, he's going to have details on the neighborhood - even if you emailed him late the previous night. Russ is experienced: he has a deep knowledge of many Metro Detroit communities (Livonia, Plymouth, Northville, etc.), he has worked all types of transactions (foreclosures, short sales, etc.), he has previously handled the problem you're going to run into when purchasing your home (in fact, he's probably blogged about it).Russ is adaptable: he has been early to adopt new technologies, he has been quick to adjust offers to changes in the marketplace, he has been ready to meet the personal needs of his clients. Russ Ravary was my real estate agent, and I have recommended him to my friends.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all of your support, guidance and knowledge towards the purchase of my first home. You were very kind, friendly and patient during the whole process. The good thing I like about you is that you have never pushed us to buy any home, but walked with us and gave us yr honest opinion about homes we visited. You had never rushed into make a decision but gave us a time to make the decision wisely during the whole process. You made me familiar and explained with some of the real-estate terms and that helped me a lot during the whole process. Even after the home purchased, I know I can still count you for any help towards my home. I would definitely recommend you to my friends/family for their future home purchase!
It´s been 2 months since we moved into our new Canton condo and we are very happy with it. In the beginning we didn't even know what we needed but with your help, guidance and patience we chose the best condo in the area with the best price according to our needs. We were looking all over. We looked in Novi, Warrren, Canton, Farmington Hills. But we finally found our Canton condo. We appreciate everything you have done for us. We would recommend you without hesitation to everyone we know who wants to buy or sell a house.
We wanted to write you Russ and tell you thank you once again. It has been five years now in sunny Arizona. You told us how to fix up our house and what to do to get the most money for our house in Michigan. Then you helped price our home and deal with the other realtor. We got top dollar at the time for our house in Michigan. If we had waited, all this would not have been possible. We were able to buy a house out here in Arizona at a price we could afford with your help and advice on the mortgage. Our house has gone up tremendously in value and we love it here. As Uncle Jim says "what not to love." Thanks so Much.
