      What People Are Saying

      Moving to Crozet 🏡

      - Moving to Crozet 🏡

      “She’s really good people.” That’s what a builder rep told us about Jessica after we toured a model home at her suggestion. He was right. We met Jessica by happenstance at an open house she was hosting when we were first exploring the idea of exchanging our Northern Virginia lifestyle for one in friendlier, more peaceful Central Virginia. We didn’t know if or when we were ready to make the leap, but we talked with Jessica and she listened. She put us at ease, sent us to that model home to get our thoughts, and invited us back for a no-pressure day of exploring the area. So began the journey of building our new home with Jessica as our agent, our advocate, and our friend. She was there at every step — keeping an eye on the house being built while we were in Northern VA, showing up at selections meetings and providing great advice on design choices, and many other little things she didn’t really need to do, but she did them anyway. What we feared would be a daunting process went remarkably smoothly and, before we knew it, our journey was complete. Never once in all of those months did we feel like “clients.” She really is good people, and we’re very glad to have met and worked with her. We can’t recommend her highly enough.

      Jessica was a great resource to help my and my family relocate to Charlottesville from Texas. We had limited time to house search and Jessica was efficient and helpful throughout the entire process. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking to buy or sell in the Charlottesville area.

      Jessica’s know-how cannot be understated. From setting a fair and marketable price to managing on-the-fly repairs to tactful negotiations she did it all well. Without her patient and knowledgeable leadership we would undoubtedly have made several costly and untimely mistakes. We are grateful.

      Jessica was phenomenal to work with in the purchase of our home. This was our first home purchase and Jessica walked alongside us at every step ready to answer questions and aid in the process. She is quickly responsive to any question or need that may arise. Overall, she made the hassle of purchasing a home much easier. We would 100% choose her as our realtor again to buy or sell!

      We couldn’t be more pleased with how Jessica handled our sale and purchase of our homes. We closed on the sale of our home prior to our new home being completed and right as the pandemic hit. My husband and I were forced to live apart from March til July until our new home was ready. Because of the pandemic I couldn’t travel back to Virginia as often as we planned. Jessica was our eyes and ears on the ground. Jessica made sure that I was aware of everything happening, every step of the way. I was getting pictures but I couldn’t physically be there, for example, she noticed that the wrong sink was put in my kitchen. By the time closing came around, my husband was calling her Eagle Eye Jessica. She is very detailed oriented, we were always her priority. If you are looking for a professional realtor to walk you through the entire process, without any reservation we would highly recommend the Russo team for all your Real Estate needs.

      The Russo Team has been wonderful to work with. Jessica made the home selling AND home buying experience feel straightforward and seamless. Jessica listed our house on a Friday morning and by the Saturday afternoon we had multiple offers, and were under contract. She advocated for us throughout and kept the entire process on track. She provided gentle reminders for the items we were responsible for completing, coordinated with our lender, buyers agent, sellers agent, and closing attorney. Jessica is incredibly well organized. When or if we decide to move again, the first call I will make is to The Russo Team.

      - Happy Western Ridge, Crozet seller

      We couldn’t be more pleased with the Russo Team. Jessica masterfully handled the timing and coordination on the sale of our existing home and purchase of a new construction home. From the first meeting, she made a plan for us to prep our home for sale. She identified a new home under construction that we loved and carefully walked us through the purchase process. When our existing home went on the market, it was under contract in 24 hours, however a home inspection identified a long list of major and minor repairs required. We were very overwhelmed and Jessica personally stepped in to use her network of contractors in the area to coordinate activities amongst all parties and had the work completed on time. We would not have been able to make this happen on our own. She was always available for us and provided continuous communications over this 3 month process. The Russo Team fully represented our best interests. They understood we were balancing an inherently stressful process with work and family life, went above and beyond to take that stress away and worked with us as a team to successfully complete complex transactions. If you are looking for a realtor in the area, we highly recommend the Russo Team – they are really the best in the field and we couldn’t be happier in our new home!

      We met Jessica at an open house in the spring of 2019, and we couldn’t be happier that we did. She listed and sold our house, and helped us every step of the way with the purchase of our new construction home. Jessica was a step ahead of the process at every turn. Though all of this occurred during the pandemic, she kept us grounded and calm throughout, and we never worried about the outcome. Jessica was a pleasure to work with, and we give her our highest marks. We can say with utmost confidence that we recommend Jessica for buying and selling your home.

      Both Jessica and Robert were very professional and yet they also made us feel very comfortable. We put our home on the market and the next day, we had numerous showings. They were spot on with pricing and changes in decor. We loved working with them. Jessica saw us thru both selling and buying. She understood what we looking for and quickly helped us find a home that was right for our needs. She was with us each step of this journey and offered needed advice. We would highly recommend them. I have also all ready recommended them to others.

      We had a great experience working with Jessica. For over eight months, we searched with her for the perfect home. In order to fully understand the local market, she spent our first day together showing us a variety of listings throughout the city and county. After we narrowed our criteria, she stayed within our parameters, promptly showing us new listings as they came on the market. She spent ample time with us providing feedback and guidance, never rushing us out of a showing. We could reach out by phone, email and text whenever we had a questions, and always received a prompt response. Once we found the home we wanted, she worked with us to negotiate a fair price and ensured the process was straightforward and transparent. As we prepared to move in, she went above and beyond to connect us with a variety of other local professionals. She made the entire buying process, from the first showing to closing, easy and smooth. We are extremely happy to have found Jessica and Robert and would highly recommend them.

      We sought Jessica and Robert Russo’s advise as we were moving closer to listing our house. They made several trips to our home advising us on actions needed to ensure a quick sale. We followed their advise and had 3 offers over ask within 24 hours. They were terriffic!

      Our process with Jessica was wonderful! She was able to give great insight into Charlottesville after moving here from Texas. We felt she had our best interest in mind at all times, and was willing to go the extra mile for us. Fun to work with, paid attention to every detail, and found us a new home we love!
