Ann Russo - Realtor®/Owner
I began my career in Real Estate in 2002. I loved looking houses and was very interested in real estate, so a career in it was natural. I started as an assistant to a local team of agents who needed help with their website and putting out flyers. I worked and learned from them as I got my license, eventually working my way up to become a team member. Once my knowledge grew, I decided it was time to make it on my own and create a name for myself. I moved to Bridgecrest Properties, Inc., Realtors® in 2006 and continued to build my own business and clientele.
As a single mom at the time, I needed a consistent income. If you know anything about real estate, you know a consistent income is not typical for most agents, so I became the office administrator at Bridgecrest Properties, Inc., Realtors®. In that position, which I still do, I reviewed all transactions that came through the office. This allowed me to grow as an agent. I learned so much. Most people will buy and sell 4-5 houses in their lifetime. Most agents will help with about 12-18 transactions per year. I look over, discuss, and learn from about 20-30 transactions per month, in addition to doing my own real estate. I see so much more than the average agent and because of that I learn quite a bit.
In 2016 the majority stockholder of the company decided to retire. The broker and her husband purchased the stock and offered me the opportunity to become a stockholder as well. I took them up on the offer and purchased a portion of the company. I am currently in the process of getting my broker’s license and will eventually own the company.
My mission in real estate is to deliver a high value Real Estate experience through ethics, integrity, listening to the client, market knowledge and a clear focus on client needs.
I love what I do, and it shows. Call me.
