More About Me

Janet Russell, Broker Serving Santa Cruz County, Carmel & Monterey

This is a great time to discover your next property or sell one that no longer suits you. Interest rates are at historic lows, benefiting both buyers and sellers.

Representing clients in Santa Clara, Santa Cruz and Monterey Counties, I welcome your inquiries. It is an honor to fulfill your dreams. My clients are confident in my ability to handle every step of a sale as they make life altering choices with their investments. I offer professional attention to detail and endless enthusiasm.

If you're a buyer, I am happy to preview homes with your needs in mind, and provide a streamlined house tour. I welcome your questions and will carefully review all contracts and negotiations with you. The current market is thrilling and constantly changing -- a great opportunity when approached with a professional who cares about your investment value.

If representing a seller, I procure the best price the market will allow. I offer marketing analyses of comparable properties and staging ideas. Our marketing of homes is unique whether in print, on international, multi-lingual websites and on YouTube. I assist sellers during every step of the home sale, keeping them informed of showings and paperwork, while acting as a liaison between the seller and all other parties.

Specialties: I love to creatively stage a home or plan a property tour, the thrill of negotiating pricing, and the detail of preparing your paperwork. Real estate is more stable than other investment avenues. Property values in the Bay Area are more stable than in most other parts of the country. I've lived in both Santa Cruz and Silicon Valley for over 20 years, and my family has been in the S.F. Bay Area for seven generations. Join me, here in paradise!
