  • Amber helped me buy a home

      A decade...or more. That's how long we had been contemplating a purchase of a home in Carmel-by-the-Sea. When the time came to get serious, we asked our realtor in Sonoma for a referral, and it was her due diligence that brought us to Amber Russell at Over The Moon Realty. As we have been buyers and sellers of real estate since 1990, our partial list of must haves in an agent are simple, but not easy: • Superior Communication Skills: Particularly when buying a home that is away from your main residence, there is little time or patience for communication incompetence. • High Degree of Urgency: Sellers and their agents are busy, buyers and their agents are busy and often that means that things take too long to address. From simple questions to more elaborate investigation, we place a high premium on folks who operate at the same high level of urgency we do. • Knowledge of the Market: Carmel has its charms. It also has its quirks. We needed an agent who could highlight the former and navigate through the latter. • Knowledge of the Transaction: Our job is not to know the finest nuances of a real estate deal. That's the job of the agent - from the offer to final walk through. • Calm in the Face of Chaos: There always seems to be a bump in the road. Our agent needs to be the one with the level head. I'll be irrational for both of us. After a case of second home cold feet (yes, it's a commitment) we closed this week - nearly two years after our 'time to get serious' phase began - on a great home, at a great price, in a great location. Thanks Amber.

                  Amber was truly awesome. She professionally guided us through a highly competitive market to finally find our new lovely home.

We loved working with Amber - she's a true professional and a sweetheart of a person. You can't go wrong using Amber Russell and we would definitely use her again!

                  • Amber listed and sold my home

                      Amber did an amazing job selling my father’s home in Pacific Grove. From our initial chat, I knew she was the perfect one to get the job done. She is very knowledgeable about the area, the market, and the process, and she even organized some repairs and helped with staging. Her help got us an over-asking price within days of listing. The neighbors also loved her warm personality, thoughtfulness, and professionalism, and i hear the neighborhood has been using her for other listings.

                    • Amber listed, but didn't sell, my home

                        Amber was energetic, knowledgeable and attentive to all of our needs. She is willing to go above and beyond to get the job done!

                      • Working with Amber made what can be a very stressful process--looking for and buying a new home--not only smooth but actually fun! She worked hard to provide me all the information I needed to make a well-informed decision and she encouraged me to take as much time as I needed. She is a genuinely nice person who looked out for my best interests at all times. I'm so glad that I found Amber. I'd give her 10 stars if that were an option!

                      • "We were very lucky to find Amber as she was able to obtain multiple offers on our home within days of listing and in the end getting us full asking price. She saw something in our home that we didn't even see, nor did the other 4 realtors that I interviewed prior to selecting Amber. She went the extra mile at every turn and far exceeded our expectations. We are ecstatic with the results and would recommend Amber to anyone."

                      • Amber Russell was fantastic to work with. Prompt, communicative, and a true expert in her field. Her wholehearted effort at making the property shine and representing us to her fullest and best capacity was evident every step of the day. We can't wait to have her sell our next property!

                        - J. Compagno
                      • Amber, you provide a great service to your clients. Other agents wanted to list our home for less. With your recommendations, talent, marketing, and hard work, we realized $85,000 more. We are so grateful."

                      • "My fiance and I are so happy that we found Amber! Everything about our experience with her was perfect, down to the tiniest detail. She not only guided us through the buying process but energized us with thoughtful suggestions that made the process more enjoyable and personal. Everything was so smooth - we had buyer acceptance on our first offer and even got to close early! To top it all off, Amber volunteered her husband to install a dog door in our new home...now that's dedication! We can't say enough great things about Amber. It was a pleasure and privilege to have her help with our home search and we will be recommending Amber to all of our friends and family in the Monterey Bay."
