Steve Russell

Agent/Partner Keller Williams Arizona Realty
The ability to make people smile is one of my strongest qualities and having this is important when it comes to finding or selling your next home. As someone who has been selling real estate since 2007, I know that searching for your perfect home or trying to sell your home can be a long and draining process. So why not make it as fun and enjoyable as you possibly can?

As a Top 20 KW Arizona Realty agent, it is my job to keep you informed and knowledgeable about the market. Keeping your family on track as we go through the process together is what I do best. My strong work ethic and good communication skills were formed during a very successful 12-year television career. So when you're ready to buy, sell or invest in Phoenix real estate, give me a call or email me.

This was the second time I used Steve to help with my Real Estate transaction. The first time was when he helped me purchase a Condo in Scottsdale. Needless to say it was because of this experience I used Steve again with the sale of my parents house in Sun City. I have enjoyed working with Steve because he is honest, has and attention to details, and keeps me posted on all aspects of the process. With the sale of my parents home, Steve provided me and my family members with all the subcontractors necessary to complete the items that needed to fixed. Steve was also very accessible throughout both processes. I would highly recommend Steve to anyone interested in the sale of their property, or to help you find that specific property in the Phoenix area.

We needed to find a home quickly as we only had a few days in town and needless to say we were anxious and stressed. Our daughter found Steve at an open house and immediately knew he was the realtor for us and she was absolutely right! He made the process as painless as possible and kept us smiling as only he can. Since purchasing the house, we have appreciated Steve's availablity to ask questions and get straight-forward answers as well as his recommendations that have made our life much easier. Without hesitation, we highly recommend Steve!

I met Steve in 2015 as my husband and I searched for a primary residence in the Phoenix area. After showing us many homes, we decided on a small home for our retirement in North Phoenix. He handled the entire buying process with professionalism and was always cognizant of our interests and concerns. All the transactions seemed effortless for us as Steve seemed to just "take care of everything." And I mean everything!
He listed two condos we owned in Tempe in the fall of 2017. They both sold within two days. Since I was in Oregon at the time, Steve took care of all repairs, at reasonable costs, and coordinated with our renters to vacate on time to provide us with a smooth sale. As usual, Steve took care of everything!
In the spring of 2018, Steve helped us once again sell our primary residence in Phoenix as we planned to move out of town. Within 24 hours we had six solid offers to choose from. His marketing and open house strategy proved very successful. At the same time as our residence was pending our daughter was searching for a condo to buy. Steve helped us all once again to maneuver the process for our daughter, handling the inspections, any repairs, financing help, coordinating with HOA, and all the stress that seems to come with these transactions.
Steve also referred us to another real estate agent in Northern Arizona to help us relocate. After looking extensively in several areas we decided on purchasing some property in Happy Jack, Az. We were very pleased with the agent he referred us to.
Steve, at this point, has become like a son to me. We still keep in touch and his concern for our well being continues even after all the business was taken care of. I would highly recommend Steve for anyone who desires a real estate agent who is professional, knowledgeable, thorough and organized, and at the same time, caring, helpful, and friendly. He loves his work and that makes all the difference.
Steve, I can't thank you enough for all you have done for us!

I purchased an investment property in the Fountain Hills area in the Spring of 2017. In the winter of 2018, I approached Steve in regards to setting up the ability to rent the property. Steve was able to draw up the rental agreement and have tenants in the property within days of the request. He handled everything efficiently and effectively in all matters of the rental agreement and tenant requests. Steve is great at answering all questions and paying close attention to every detail to ensure that both the tenant and myself had an experience that we will both do again. He is an amazing person to work with and always has your best interest at heart. I would recommend Steve for any aspect of Real Estate!

Steve came highly recommended from a friend of ours. We are from out of town and were looking for a vacation home. We had no idea which areas to look for a home in. He informed us of the pros and cons on multiple areas so we could make an informed decision. Steve asked us what we were looking for in a home and he chose only properties he knew would work since we were flying in to look at them and had limited time.
Steve was very friendly and easy to work with. He goes above and beyond what you would expect, even after the sale he continues to be helpful. We would recommend him to any of our friends and definitely will use him again when we are ready to buy another place!

Steve did an amazing job in helping me sell my condo. This was my first time selling a home and Steve was there with me through the whole process. He was patient with me and took the time to thoroughly explain everything that was happening. My home sold in a matter of days and if it wasn’t for Steve, it probably wouldn’t had. I recommend his service to anyone that is wishing to buy or sell their home! Thanks Steve once again!!

Steve is amazing! He made it fun. Listed our 2 condos on Friday, had a contract on one on Saturday and a second contract on the other unit on Sunday. He worked hard and got them both closed and funded as we left for Europe! Amazing effort! Would recommend Steve RUSSELL to anyone. He won't fail to please you!

Steve was amazing from start to finish. He was understanding of everything we were looking for in a new home. He was also very patient and never pushy. Steve was available anytime we had questions and if he didn't know the answer he would find out and get back to us in a timely manner. When it came to selling our home Steve was very accommodating to our needs. He always give us ample time before showing our house. He told us are home would sell quickly, but we never guessed that we would have multiple offers in the first week on the market. I would highly recommend Steve Russell to anyone as a real estate agent!

I used Steve as my broker to purchase and sale my house over the last seven years. Always patient, good communications and great results. He knows the Phoenix market well and listens's to his customer, but always gives good honest feedback on price and market value. Will definitely use him again for my next purchase in the valley

Steve is an amazing realtor, he priced our house to sell quickly but within the price range we needed . He helped us find a house we wanted and he made many calls to make sure we found the right one. Even after the sale Steve has been great with helping find moveers and any other needed assistance around the house. He wants to make sure your transition is a smooth as possible. Thanks Steve.

Working with Steve has been an absolutely fantastic experience. He was listing a condo next to ours and right off the bat, we liked him. Steve has a great sense of humor, patience, and worked very hard to make sure everything I wanted was a perfect fit for me and my family. Our new home purchase was the largest purchase we have every made, and he really took it seriously to see that we were protected and felt safe. I really appreciate this, thank you Steve! The actual buying process was one of the easiest purchase I have every made too. I really liked the automated convenience of all the documentation work involved and the extra steps he took working with the other agent and seller to make sure everything went smoothly. I feel so good that we got everything we wanted and will always ask Steve first on all things real estate. I look forward to listing our other properties with Steve and I’m certain we will have the same great experience selling as we did buying. Thanks again, Sully

We recently relocated from Oregon. Steve was great to work with. He was tasked to answer many questions about the area and neighborhoods. He was quick to respond and always had the answers. We had a quick time frame in which we wanted to buy our new home and he found us our dream house! Great guy I highly recommend Steve!

We recently relocated from Oregon to Scottsdale, and early on (prior to our move) we received a referral to Steve to help us in our search. As Steve will attest, we were very specific in what we were looking for both in terms of location and type of home. Steve was amazing at whittling down the inventory to a handful of homes that we flew down and saw. He was also instrumental in helping with the offer and with the entire process from afar! He is a go-getter and truly a pleasure to deal with as well!

I had the pleasure of working with Steve while looking for office space to move our business location to. Steve brought us great options and when we found the right location, was on top of all aspects of the deal. He worked hard, seeing it through to the end to ensure that all parties involved were satisfied with the outcome. I will continue to work with Steve on our future real estate endeavors

First Time Home Buyer!
First, I just want to say that I should have bought a house so much sooner had i known how easy it'd be. But in all honesty, I feel like Steve is what really made it possible and the process go so smoothly! He got us scheduled with a lending company and we were pre-approved within 24hours! Steve worked with our crazy schedule and even visited homes at odd hours just to make sure we were seeing everything we wanted and making the best choices. He was seriously on top of everything, very straightforward, and even provided us with referrals for the things we would need later on. I highly recommend Steve if you're looking to buy a home, he won't let you down! I am sooo inlove with my new house and couldn't be happier! Thank you Steve!

I can't say enough good things about Steve Russell. I am not an easy person to work with and came in with a list of I wanted, and an even bigger list of don't even bother to show me houses that have these things! I certainly did not make his job easy, but that's my issue and how I roll. Steve was never anything but professional, and even though I am sure I exasperated him more than once he never let on. He was always encouraging and helpful telling me that he would find me my house even when I was ready to quit! He answered all phone calls, texts and e-mails right away even at crazy hours.
Even though I now have my dream house if I were ever to move again Steve would be my first call!! I highly recommend Steve to anyone looking to buy home or selling a home in the Phoenix and surrounding areas.

Steve guided us patiently throughout the entire home buying process. He possesses a vault of knowledgeable regarding properties in Maricopa County.

When we inadvertently picked a residence that was less than desirable he didn't waste our time by trying to make a quick sale but rather cautioned us from making a regrettable mistake.

He truly has his client's bests interests at heart and would rather lose a sale than compromise his integrity. It's comes as no surprise he is consistently ranked as one of the top realtors in Phoenix.

Having just completed my second residential apartment building purchase with Steve, I can't say enough positive things about him. In this last transaction, Steve's incredible patience with a very difficult seller & seller's agent in a challenging transaction allowed me to ultimately get a good property.

The purchase took ~7 months to complete due to need to resolve liens, during which the seller's agent was not forthcoming or straightforward with information or documentation, and during which the seller's agent destroyed relationships with just about everyone around her due to her incompetence, Steve managed to keep a constructive relationship with her which allowed the purchase to ultimately complete with terms & a price that was particularly favorable to me.

Thanks, Steve - hope we have opportunity to work together again.
