Michael Russo's Reviews & Ratings

Tell us about your experience with Michael Russo

    • Mike was referred, and highly regarded by several of my colleagues in the pursuit of my first home purchase. I have nothing short of excellent things to say about my experience. He took my specific considerations and budget in mind, was available for questions and viewings nearly any time, and took care of fine details to make the process as smooth as possible. I will certainly be looking to him for my real estate needs in the future.

    • Micheal is a true professional in every sense of the word. From our first meeting with Micheal were put at ease by him. We were incredibly impressed with his knowledge of the area and what to expect. Unlike other real estate brokers Micheal earned our trust instantly. My wife and I knew very quickly he had our best interest at heart. Micheal was there for us any time of day, getting back to us as soon as he received our calls and messages. The negotiating was to the point and painless. All parties were pleased and all walked away smiling. Not only do we have a realtor for life, we also have a friend for life. A debt of thanks and gratitude to Micheal Russo for bringing our family closer to our dream! Sincerely, Tony and Valerie Fiano

    • Mike was nothing short of fabulous fo deal with. Whether showing me every home I wanted to see on my lengthy list, answering the countless questions I had, or ALWAYS being quick to respond, he was just amazing to work with. He made buying my first home less scary. He helped navigate a tricky situation that arose after my appraisal came in, while on vacation with his family - he was never out of contact. We ultimately closed without incident as a result of his hard work. I am so grateful for his expertise and calm demeanor. Since closing he has recommended contractors, etc. I trust him, and I will (and have!) Recommend him to anyone who is considering a realtor. 5 stars seems like too few!

      - Liz, RI
    • We have now completed our second transaction with Michael and we can't say enough about this man. More than once he had gone up and beyond what we would consider an agents responsibility. He was truly an advocate for us through the entire process.We would recommend him whether you are selling or buying and whether you are considering a resale or a new property.

      - Gail, RI
    • Mike redefined for us what a real estate agent can be. Though we havent bought or sold property in 25 years, we couldnt have asked for a more professional, knowledgeable, or responsive against to navigate us through the home-selling process. Mike was always willing to answer our questions at anytime of day or night, was creative in marketing our home, and most importantly encouraged us and listened to our thoughts and concerns. We would without hesitation recommend Michael Russo to family, friends, or anyone seeking real estate services in the future. You will have no regrets!Scott and Karen

    • ichael was great through the entire process of buying our home. He provided an honest opinion on the multiple properties we viewed. Also, he was always responsive to our texts in a reasonable amount of time and answered all our questions with detail! Even after we bought our house, Michael was following up to confirm we had the right contacts for any updates and services we needed. Michael is a fantastic realtor and individual. There is no hesitation as we recommend him for anyone buying or selling your home.Michael, Thank you for everything you did to help make the purchase of our home so smooth!

      - Sara and Andy, RI
    • I found Michael Russo and James Jordain to be very efficient in the house selling process. He was very detailed in getting the information to me about what I needed to do to sell my house. We sold the house for the price that I wanted and it was a very easy closing. I would recommend Michael Russo to any one looking to sell their house, Laura Riendeau

      - Laura, RI
    • Michael has helped me find my dream home. He is very honest and is always available to answer questions . He has an excellent knowledge of the market. He is by far the best real estate professional I have dealt with.

      - Tarig, RI
    • We couldn't have asked for a better experience purchasing our first home, and we owe it to Mike. He was extremely patient and detailed in answering all of our questions and helping to support us throughout the purchase process. We highly recommend him. Thanks, Mike! -Tom & Catherine

      - Tom & Catherine, RI
    • I interviewed 4 realtors of which Michael was one. There was something about him that made me feel like he was an honest and trustworthy person. I was right. Mike was so helpful and made it a very easy process to sell a house we were living in for over 25 years. I have to say that I will use him again for ANY real estate transaction that comes my way, and 100% would refer him to anyone doing the same.

      - Gail & Ken, RI
    • Mike always goes above and beyond for his clients. Mike helped me sell my condo. This was our second transaction together. He did a fantastic job again. I highly recommend him!!

      - John, RI
    • Mike was great to work with. He helped me find my home and made it a very smooth process. He was honest and reasonable. In particular, he has lots of experience working with resident physicians and navigating the physician loan that others may not have, as well as helping first-time home buyers know what to keep in mind and good recommendations for home services. I definitely recommend to anyone.

      - Catherine, RI
    • If you want a realtor who goes above and beyond, Mike is your man. We relocated to RI from Georgia six years ago, and we set out to buy our first home. We knew nothing about the state, but we we're lucky enough to choose Mike as our realtor. We flew to RI for two separate weekends and Mike showed us countless homes in different communities across Rhode Island. We found the perfect home for us, and Mike was able to close the deal for us seemlessly while we were still in Georgia. Over the next few years, Mike was always my go-to for recommendations for different contractors and companies for home maintenance. He always had great recommendations and was always quick to respond. Fast forward to six years later when we were ready to sell our home. Mike had beautiful photos of our taken for the listing. After listing the property, our house had six offers and was sold above asking within 5 days! About a month after our home went under contract, a tree fell on our house one night during a Noreaster while we were not home. Mike drove to our house, climbed over the tree, and went inside to assess the damage. Water was pouring in through the roof, so Mike found buckets and towels to catch the water. He truly saved us thousands of dollars and tons of repair work by stopping the water damage. I don't know many other realtors who would do all of that for their clients. As closing came near, Mike was always there for questions. He came by and rewired all of our smoke detectors so that they would be up to code and pass with the fire marshall. He even represented us at closing since we were in the middle of a cross country move. Mike really took care of our family's real estate needs while we were in Rhode Island. He works hard and is committed to his clients. He clearly goes the extra mile! Thanks, Mike, for everything!

      - Lauren, RI
    • We are out of state sellers which could have been a really stressful process, but it was the complete opposite with Mike leading the charge. He was a great communicator, negotiator and ultimately an advocate for us and what we were trying to accomplish with the sale. Although we no longer live in Rhode Island, I'll be recommending him to all of my Rhode Island friends and family.

      - Melissa, RI
    • I was referred to Mike by a friend that worked with him previously. She gave me a great reference and I can honestly say that I could not have a better agent! This was my 3rd time purchasing a place so I had worked with other agents in the past not quite as good. It really makes a world of difference!

      - Gloria, RI
    • Mike is a fantastic realtor. This was our second time buying a house, and Mike did everything he could to make the process as easy as possible for us. He always had our best interest as his biggest priority. He is so knowledgeable about the entire buying/selling process, and he really helped us to know what to consider when making the decisions we needed to make. He is extremely responsive and quite skilled at helping us keep our calm! He is also well connected with local resources which helped ease some of the steps along the way as well. I highly recommend Mike to anyone!

      - Jordan, RI
    • Mike is an awesome realtor. Always available, quick to respond, works to get the best deals for his clients and really puts his clients wishes first. Couldn't have asked for more help/a smoother process. I highly recommend him to everyone looking to buy/rent/sell a home in Rhode Island.

      - Chris, RI
    • Mike recently helped my fianc and I purchase our first home. He guided us throughout the whole process and made our search fun and easy. He was readily available, trustworthy, and very knowledgeable. He helped us find exactly what we were looking for and we couldnt be happier in our new house! We would highly recommend Mike Russo to anyone buying or selling their home.

      - Josh, Warwick
    • My husband and I are first time homeowners and we were naturally scared and hesitant entering the realtor field. We wouldnt have had it any other way with Michael! He was always our frontline and protected us and everything that was in our best interest. He made us feel comfortable and confident in our decisions through the whole process. If there was something we didnt understand, we didnt feel nervous to bring it up and everything was explained thoroughly. He cared about us and our well being and made sure we were happy! He will definitely be our right hand man if we are ever in search of another home in the future!

      - M Ricci, RI
    • Michael is the most professional, knowledgeable Realtor that I've dealt with. He is prepared and on all showings and actually has answers. I will never use another realtor.

      - Noah, RI
    • Mike walked us through the home buying process from A-Z. He was very professional and answered my calls and texts in a very timely manner which is very important in this competitive market.Thanks again Mike!

      - George, Cranston
    • Mike recently helped my wife and I sell our home and purchase an upgrade. He's incredibly knowledgeable about the housing market, the buying/selling process, and negotiating. Most importantly, you can always trust that he has your best interest at heart. This recent buy was the 3rd time we've used him and we've referred him to friends and family over the years. We wouldn't use anyone else!

      - Courtney & Courtland, North Kingstown
    • My husband and I have worked with Mike for the past 4 years now, buying and selling homes we have flipped, as well as our most recent personal home sale and purchase. He will work around the clock for you, and always go the extra mile for his clients. His industry and market knowledge has been key for our success with real estate in Rhode island. We wouldn't use anyone else!

      - Florence Family, Warwick
    • Mike recently helped me with my purchase of a new home and he did an excellent job. He is very knowledgeable, proactive and provided great customer service. He was very responsive to emails and texts and made sure I was comfortable throughout the whole process. I would highly recommend Mike to anyone looking for a real estate agent.

      - Lynn, Cowesett
    • Michael recently helped my wife and I purchase our new home, and he was terrific. Very knowledgeable and helped us throughout the entire process. Mike had our back the whole time!

      - Matt & Ashley, Cowesett
    • I cannot say enough about Mike Russo. Legitimately every step of the way (numerous house visits, finding the house we wanted, setting us up with our mortgage company, following up on the seller's replacement septic system, referring a contractor to do a remodel, etc.) Mike went above and beyond to provide advice and help even when it wasn't necessarily his "job". I can honestly say that my first home buying experience was far less intimidating than I anticipated. Mike is a down to earth guy who knows his stuff and will be 100% real with you. He is not a pushy salesperson just looking to close deals. He has a vested interest in his clients and it is obvious by his reputation in the industry. I will be using him in the future as well as referring him to all friends and family. Thank you for all you've done, Mike. You were a pleasure to work with!

      - Milissa & Brandon, Cowesett
    • Thanks very much for your care and respect in dealing with our properties, your attention to detail, and willingness to cooperatively guide us all on how we could help move the whole project along. I don't think it is an exaggeration to say that, all things considered, my Mom, who lived in those properties, now has comfort and ease in her new setting. This is in no small part due to your assistance. Selling properties, I would think, inevitably involves the disruptions of peoples' lives with all kinds of attendant emotions; in our case you did not trivialize any dimension of this experience, yet you remained efficient and ever-present.

      - Hempstead Family, South Kingstown
    • My fianc and I just recently sold our condo and purchased our first single family home together with the help of Mr. Russo. Him and his team were attentive, knowledgeable and extremely patient with us. He was able to refer and guide us in every direction. I could not imagine getting through dual sales without their seamless help!

      - Michelle, Elmhurst
    • Mike was a devoted and very professional agent. He had intimate knowledge of the process and at three specific times pointed out possible pitfalls and what to do to avoid them (including a significant issue with the plumbing/septic system which was a major sticking point to the sale; he was aware of the laws and what to do to remain covered). I'm confident that many potential issues were avoided because of this.I also was impressed by his aggressive work ethic. Our house value was only in the two hundred range and at all times i felt that i was getting the same service as someone who was selling a million dollar home. In addition he was extremely accessible, taking a few calls on the weekends and after hours when issues arose.I strongly recommend this agent for selling you home. However we also used him as a buyer's agent and were equally satisfied with the process.

      - Rob, Governor Francis Farms
    • Mike was great! His knowledge and expertise sold my home. I have moved out of state and he was extremely helpful through the process. I recommend Mike to help you buy or sell a home!

      - JF, Warwick
    • I have bought and sold 3 homes prior to meeting Mike and with him, my husband and I, have sold 2 homes and bought 1. Mike is hands down the best realtor I have ever worked with and I will recommend him to everyone going forward. He is honest, direct, very helpful, always available, resourceful, and has a great sense of humor. He is like a one stop shop for buying or selling a house. Besides all his realtor duties, he always had a recommended person for anything we needed from a builder to a mortgage company, to a locksmith, which was incredibly helpful. His communication was excellent in every aspect from texting to email to phone calls. We liked him so much that we are inviting him to our open house! We feel very fortunate to have had Mike recommended to us and I hope you do the same! You will not be disappointed! Thank you Mike!

      - Jeanene, Ashaway
    • Mike truly is an outstanding realtor! He made the process as easy as possible and very efficient! I highly recommend using mike Russo for any of your real estate needs!

      - Joy, Hoxsie
    • My wife and I were moving from out of state to begin residency and Mike was an incredible asset. We knew nothing about the area, hadn't been to town except for interviews and were working on a tight schedule. Mike responded to our initial inquiry late on a Sunday evening and throughout the process was exceptionally responsive at all hours of the day. He scheduled nearly a dozen showings on a single day, and made the entire process painless. He facilitated the closing of the home, and was at our home's inspection. He had great recommendations and was a true joy to work with. If we stay in the area after residency there is no doubt who we will use as our realtor.

      - Julie & Zach, Edgewood
    • We were looking to buy a house within a very tight timeframe and we were very fortunate that we had Mike on our side! With his help and support, we were able to find a great house at a great price, while navigating all the ups and downs of buying a house. I have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone else buying in this area!

      - Liz, Cranston
    • My fiance and I used Mike as our realtor when we were relocating from NY to RI for my residency program at Brown. At first we were unsure whether or not we wanted to buy, but within an hour of signing up on the physician loans website, we received a phone call from Mike and he eased our worries about buying and we were right on track. We had a whirlwind search of RI, looking at over 15 houses in 2 days and Mike was extremely accommodating and always able to be flexible to meet our schedule. He was knowledgeable about the area and really efficient at streamlining the entire process, especially with us being 3 hours away in another state. We found our house and closed and the entire process took about two months from start to finish! We were also extremely impressed with Kevin, an agent who works with Mike who was our point person throughout our experience. Everyone Mike recommended from home inspection to contractors were professional and great. We will definitely be listing with Mike when we sell in the future!!

      - Cody, Warwick
    • Mike is fantastic. From day 1, he was engaged, responsive, and invested in helping us find the ideal home. He is very knowledgeable about the Providence area, and honest about which spots to avoid. He did a great job of driving the home buying process, while also giving us time to consider our options and explore all of the possibilities. When it came to wrapping things up, the process was so seamless that we didn't even have to adjust our daily schedules, despite the fact we were 5 states away. If you are looking to buy a house in RI, Mike is your man.

      - Dan, Hope
    • I contacted Mike after a poor experience with another agent. Mike is not one of those "old school" agents who didn't keep up with technology. I loved how easy it was to sign most forms digitally through email. Mike understands the importance and advantages of being a Premiere Zillow Agent, and he uses channels such as Facebook to find potential buyers. Communication was top notch. I never felt out of the loop at any point in the process. If I needed to get a hold of him, I would email, text, or call him depending upon how important it was, and he was available and responsive through all forms of communication. One of the most valuable traits about Mike is that he will not over promise or sugar coat anything. He is very caution because he understands how things can change in an instant, and he doesn't want to get your hopes up over nothing. I learned to really appreciate that from him. His honesty kept our expectations in check, and helped us stay sane through the entire process. From a seller's perspective, I highly recommend Mike as your agent.

      - Matt, Warren
    • They say selling a home is the most stressful time in your life. Mike made it stress free! From day one he came in and gave us recommendations for a quick sell at top dollar, and he was right on the money with it all. He was always available to answer any questions that we had. I highly recommend him for your real estate needs. He will go above and beyond for you. Thank you again Mike!

      - Erin, Buttonwoods
    • I was a first time home buyer and Mike made it an easy and awesome experience. He's really easy going and comfortable to work with and makes himself available to you as much as possible. The few times that I felt lost in the process or uncertain, he was very patient with me in guiding and informing me while looking out for my interests. He always worked with a great sense of urgency as I was on a short timeline and was flexible enough to work with a crazy work schedule like mine. You'll enter the journey of purchasing a home feeling confident as he'll explain to you very well what to expect and you'll finish the journey, learning from him a lot about the home buying process and having those expectations met. He genuinely wants your purchase to be the best investment you've ever made.

      - Randy, West Warwick
    • My girlfriend and I recently began the search for our first home and, being new to the process, had no idea where to begin. After a few webinars and a lot of web searches, we got to the point at which we were ready to find our buyer's agent. Within an hour of reaching out to Mike, we had received our first phone call and had already scheduled an initial meeting.We spent about an hour and a half grilling Mike with every interview question we could possibly think of (or find online). Not only did he take the time to answer all of our questions thoroughly, but his answers were everything we wanted to hear and more. We walked out of the "interview" knowing that we had found our agent. Soon thereafter, Mike began accompanying us on our property visits.Each time we viewed a property, Mike asked questions we would have never thought to ask, and noticed important details we would have otherwise missed. Quite frankly, we felt a heck of a lot more comfortable having him in our corner. The insights he provided saved us an incredible amount of time, money and frustration.Within a short time, we were fortunate enough to find our future home. By this time, Mike had already taught us quite a bit, but the thought of submitting our first offer had us anxious. Lucky for us, Mike kept us updated in real time and, with every conversation, reassured us that we were in good shape, explaining the next steps and reasonable timelines.Fast forward about a month, and we are officially first time homeowners! To say that Mike was a great realtor would be an enormous understatement. In what could have been the one of the most stressful times of our lives, Mike was our representative, our content expert, our mediator and, at times, our confidant.We couldn't imagine having done this without Mike's help. He's professional, down to earth, and VERY good at what he does! As long as he's in the business, we have our realtor, and one that we will recommend to everyone we know!!!

      - Ted, Charlestown
    • We relocated from New Jersey for my husbands residency program with Brown. After renting for a year we needed a place to own and call our own. Mike was a HUGE help with our first time home purchase. Not being familiar with the area, it was comforting to know that Mike only looked at all of the safe and nice areas in Cranston and Warwick where we were interested in buying. Mike was very thorough and patient with us and was always very responsive. He went above and beyond to help us navigate the flood zone situation on our house and even submitted the request to remove it with the township/FEMA. I never felt pressured and always felt listened to and respected by Mike no matter how dumb my questions were. We will definitely be calling Mike when we go to sell our house in 5 years!

      - CK, Cranston
    • We recently worked with Mike to purchase our first home and we were very pleased with his level of customer service and professionalism. Since this was our first home, he was very patient with us, took the time to explain the entire process and answer all of our questions. I would highly recommend working with Mike!

      - Jon, Rumford
    • I have had multiple real estate dealings over the past several years and have dealt with all kinds of realtors. I have had the best experience by far with Mike. I relocated our of RI and needed a realtor to sell a property in RI. I am so glad I found Mike. He was extremely patient with me throughout the process. His knowledge of the market and process is immense and invaluable. I honestly believe that if I did not have his expertise and suggestions, It would have taken much longer to sell the house. Not for a moment throughout the process did I ever think that he had any other clients than me. When he was with me on the phone, he gave me his complete undivided attention and made me feel like I was his only client. To readers reading this review, I urge you to stop looking for another realtor and go with Mike. I promise you that you won't be disappointed.

      - Anuj, West Warwick
    • Started our search for a new home began with finding a realtor. Mike Russo came recommended from a family member and we could not have been happier! Knowledgable, attentive, and easy going, Mike made us feel comfortable and confident in our search and we were able to find the perfect home. I would recommend Mike (and already have) to anyone looking for a home.

      - Courtney, Johnston
    • Michael Russo was great to work with. He helped us sell our home as well as purchase a new one. He was always available whenever we needed him and is very knowledgeable. He went above and beyond to make sure my wife and I had the best experience possible, and was very thorough. We would recommend him to anyone who is looking to either buy or sell property.

      - Sean, N Providence
    • Please consider using Mike Russo for any of your real estate needs! He is incredibly knowledgeable about Rhode Island and real estate in general. He helped me to move from hundreds of miles away and held my hand through the entire process. He was quick to respond to every phone call and email. He was very thorough in his explanations and helped me to understand a great deal about home buying, as this was my first purchase. His expertise and professionalism are unmatched! I could not have asked for a better broker and I would recommend him especially to anyone using the Physician Loan to relocate after medical school or residency, as he works with many physicians in this regard.

      - Meredith, Cranston
    • Working with Mike was such a pleasure. He made buying a new home and selling ours easy and transparent. He always told explained the possible outcomes of different scenarios for us so we knew what to expect. He communicated every step of the way and however--text, call, email--fit our busy schedules best. We chose to work with Mike based on reading online reviews, and we couldn't be happier.

      - Ethan & Shannon, Cranston
    • Without a doubt THE BEST Real Estate Professional around, thank god my wife and I found him. Michael Russo went above and beyond for us. I remember our first conversation, he said "This is my profession, I am available 24/7 for you". He wasn't kidding. Anyone reading this and you need a Real Estate Professional, Michael Russo is the ONLY person you want!!!

      - Neil, Cranston
    • Mike is great! He helped my husband and I navigate our first home purchase seamlessly. As a Rhode Island native, he is extremely knowledgeable about the area, and helped steered our search to areas that met our specific needs. Mike was available all the time via phone, email, and text, and always responded immediately. In addition to showing us 20+ homes until we found ours, Mike was super helpful through the gruesome mortgage application process. He is very knowledgeable about the Physician Loan Financing and has several contacts, including mortgage loan officers who are familiar with the complicated process. He even helped us navigate getting housework completed and setting up our utilities (met the cable guy at the house) while we were out-of-town, making sure we had everything in place for move-in. In addition to all of the above, Mike is a nice and relatable guy, really the best case scenario while spending long days together searching for houses!

      - Lyndsy, East Greenwich
    • Michael was wonderful with helping us negotiate our new home. He is very knowledgeable, knew answers to all our questions. Very insightful in the process.
