Michael Russo's Reviews & Ratings

Tell us about your experience with
Michael Russo

    • 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 & Karen, Westerly, 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 and Ken, W Warwick, RI
    • 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 B, Pawtucket, RI
    • We worked with Mike to buy our first home and when it came time to sell and upgrade, he was our first call. He is very knowledgable about homes, the Rhode Island area and is a great asset. Mike made the whole process as smooth as possible. We got multiple offers over asking and were able to purchase our new home with a double closing, making the transition between homes seamless! Can't recommend him enough!

      - John & Meara, N Kingstown, RI
    • I have used Mike three times now (2 purchases and 1 sale) and can't speak highly enough of him! He is always incredibly responsive and helpful given his extensive wealth of knowledge. Without question, would recommend Mike to anyone and everyone!

      - Liz T, Warwick, RI
    • Mike went above and beyond in helping me sell my home. He is very knowledgeable and always kept me informed of what was going on. He coordinated everything to make sure the sale of my home went smoothly and facilitated the purchase of my new home (even though he was not my realtor for the purchase of the new home). I can't speak highly enough of Mike. I've already referred him to my brother. I'll definitely hire him for all real estate needs in the future. He's easily the best realtor I've ever worked with.

      - Nick C, N Providence, RI
    • Excellent experiencing with Mike - he sold our house fast and helped us get not just the right price but right terms for us. He had great local knowledge and connections that helped the process go smoothly.

      - Bud, Providence, RI
    • I would definitely recommend Michael Russo! I felt comfortable because he has a lot of experience and knows what to look out for, and he was always available anytime I had a question. I was super picky about my house and he found me the perfect one. Thanks!

      - Joe, Warwick, RI
    • Just bought my first home and Mike made my home buying experience extremely easy. I would recommend Mike to anyone looking to buy a house. Great guy great experience.

      - Paul B, Coventry, RI
    • I am very grateful to have had Mike representing me in the sale of my house. Thanks to him we had a buyer in a few short weeks. His knowledge, expertise and pro-active approach made the whole process practically stress-free for me. Highly recommended.

      - Anne S, N Smithfield, RI
    • Mike Russo consistently exceeds the high expectations he sets for himself. His depth of knowledge, keen awareness of nuance, attention to detail and dedication to his clients are testaments to his setting the bar at THE highest level in real estate. The fact that he is one of the Good Guys is icing on the cake.

      - Linda & Dallas, Warwick, RI
    • We recently had the distinct pleasure of working with Mike Russo with RI Real Estate Services as our broker in selling our home. He was extremely knowledgeable and very professional. He went above and beyond to make sure the selling process was as non-stressful as possible for us. He kept us informed during each phase of the process. If you are looking to sell your home there is no one better than Mike. He is awesome.

      - Diane & Steve, Charlestown, RI
    • Mike Russo was an absolute pleasure to work with. He was professional and one step ahead of everything. Mike has a wealth of knowledge of Rhode Island and had great recommendations for us. From the inspection to the mortgage company everything was simple and easy. This was especially helpful since we lived out of state. Mike helped us with everything with our relocation. Mike is the best in the business! We would definitely recommend him to anyone who is looking to buy or sell. Thank you so much Mike!

      - Dawn & Mike, Hope Valley, RI
    • Mike is a great realtor, easy to work with, professional, courteous, and friendly. We have worked with Mike twice in the past five years, on the purchase and sale of our first home, and the purchase of our second home. We strongly recommend Mike if you are working on any real estate transactions in the area.

      - Ryan & Corey, E Greenwich, RI
    • Why all 5 stars? Because he deserves them. My wife wanted to sell and move but I didn't. Mike understood and knew enough not to push me but rather to guide me into another house. I was totally impressed. My wife got what she wanted and I got what I needed. Great job Mike.

      - Bill, N Providence, RI
    • We used Michael to sell our home and buy our new one. He was very helpful and understanding. Selling our home of 35 years was very emotional Mike was very understanding of this. He also guided us through the process of buying our new home. Many things have changed since we bought our first home 35 years ago. Whether buying or selling I would recommend Mike Russo.

      - Cheryl, Warwick, RI
    • Outstanding experience. Mike came highly recommended and its evident why- hes professional, effective and easy to work with. I will continue to recommend him to my friends. He made the search and buying process non-stressful and I had confidence in all of his recommendations.

      - Katrina, Cranston, RI
    • This was my very first time buying a home and I was a bit scared not knowing anything about the process. I was given Mikes contact info by a friend...Mike truly made this experience stress free for me! He guided me the entire way with no pressure at all on his part..he also made me feel comfortable with changing my mind at times hahaI will definitely refer Mike to those I hear are planning to buy or sell!

      - Sheri L, Coventry, RI
    • Mike is the best realtor to work with! This was me and my husbands first time buying a home and it could not have gone smoother. He kept our minds at ease, and answered all of our questions. He got back to us within minutes and was always a phone call away at any time. He is very pleasant to work with and I would recommend him to anyone. He has the buyers best interest in mind. - Christina & Shawn Amaral

      - Christina & Shawn Amaral, Cranston, RI
    • I take this opportunity to share a great experience. We recently relocated to South Carolina from Exeter. Selling our home was a major hurdle in the moving process. By happenstance we ran across the consummate realtor. Thats right, Michael Russo, Broker, RI Real Estate Services became our listing/selling agent. Mike knows the business, giving us sound advise regarding market value, presentation, photos, advertising and maintenance. Mike worked every detail to ensure we received an excellent value. While the home was on the market Mike and his family went on vacation to the islands. Although 2,000 miles away we never felt out of touch with him because we were connected electronically. If you or your friends are ever in need of a realtor Mike is the one to call.

      - J Hughes, Exeter, RI
    • Mike was a true professional. He took into account all of my needs/expectations/wants/limitations and provided me with valuable information about available homes/condos to help me decide which ones were worth looking at. He never tried to show me a home that was out of my price range, and was all about getting me into a place that was good for me, not a place that was good for him or his commission. Anytime I contacted Mike, he was very quick with a response, and did a great job of researching places ahead of time to determine whether or not they would fit into my criteria, thus eliminated visits to places I would not be happy with. It was a great experience overall, and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy in RI

      - KJ, Buyer, Pawtucket
    • Michael is an excellent Agent. After meeting him at an open house, we knew that he and the house wwere the perfect match for our family. Michael walked us through the process of making and presenting our offer and then "held our hands" as we went through the daunting financing portion of buying our home. Through it all, Michael was patient, kind, and always looked out for our best interest. I He even stopped by a few days after closing to make sure we were doing okay in our new home. We would highly recommend Michael for your home buying and/or purchasing needs. He is certainly one of a kind!

      - Jasmine, East Greenwich
    • Mike was excellent to work with. My husband and I were relocating from Atlanta to Rhode Island due to a job transfer. We knew nothing about RI, but Mike showed us the best areas for our family. We found a great house in a great neighborhood. Mike was very patient with us. He showed us as many houses as possible for 2 full weekends, since we were having to purchase the home while still living in Atlanta. Mike walked us through the home buying process and was readily available for all of our questions. He did a great job helping us buy our first home. Mike was very knowledgable and responsive. He did a great job negotiating and got us a great price on our home. Mike was also very helpful by giving us great referrals for contractors, inspectors, etc.

      - Lauren, East Greenwich
    • Mike helped me through the difficult process that was a short sale. From the very beginning, he advised me of the challenges we'd face and set realistic expectations for me. I knew this would be a long and tough process but Mike made it easy by being so accommodating. He developed a plan, utilized his professional contacts, and basically handled everything for me! In the time it took to get the deal done Mike had "sold" the condo 3 times, overcome the fact that our complex's FHA loan qualification status expired, and helped me get the place ready for showings. It would be hard to understate the difficulty and stress involved in such a process, but Mike stayed positive and reassured me he and his team would get the deal done. He really came through for me! I would highly recommend his services!

      - Linda, Cranston
    • Mike Russo was better than any buyers agent we thought we would ever find. He was wonderful at listening to our needs and wants, did a great job of sending us updates throughout the search, and he was supportive of us at each step, even through closing on the house. He looked out for us when we didnt know what to do, and he was always one step ahead of us, offering suggestions, giving us referrals, and helping us be prepared for what was next. He is knowledgeable about the market as well the different areas in Rhode Island. Furthermore, he is assertive about getting you what you want. Before our search for a home began, my fiance and I made a list of what we were looking for. Even though we only told Mike what we needed, he helped us find a home that had every last one of our wants as well. Mike was such a good realtor that we count him as a friend.

      - Leo, Riverside
    • My wife and I were very impressed with the level of service and attention we received from Mike. As a young couple buying our first home, Mike did a fantastic job of guiding us through the home buying process. He also went surpassed our expectations by attending our house inspection when we were away on vacation, going to the property to find answers to any questions we had, and offering his honest assessments of the properties we viewed. We recommend Mike without reservation.

      - Christina & Jose, Providence
    • Mike was great! He knew our situation as we were selling and buying at the same time and he represented us as a buyers agent moving from MA to RI all within 30 days or so. He found us properties and took the time out of his weekend to line up several showings. Good agents are tough to find and Mike is the type of guy who will tell you the good and bad about properties. He has excellent communication skills as well as a good listener and always tries to find what your looking for in a particular area and price range. I would highly recommend him to friends and family.

      - Brian, Cranston
    • We cannot say enough about Mike's professionalism and knowledge. He was so thorough in researching every home we were interested in that we had complete confidence in our final choice. Even though he's very busy you never feel neglected or that any of his other clients are more important, which is a skill not all agents have. He also stayed very proactive and involved during the financing process, helping to ensure that we closed on time, which was a really big deal for us. The best part about working with Mike is that he helped to negotiate a deal that was so good our new neighbors are talking about it!! You won't go wrong with him.

      - Devon, Edgewood
    • Michael Russo was a life saver for me. My employer transferred me from Virginia to Rhode Island. I had an extremely short amount of time to get relocated. I gave Michael a laundry list of my needs and within 1 day of visiting he found the perfect place to live. I highly recommend Michael Russo for all real estate needs. "Mike, Thank you, again!"

      - Chris, W Warwick
    • Mike worked very diligently to locate, show and negotiate a great price on our new condo. He sent me listings every day so I could review and select condos I wanted to view. Mike worked within my time frame to show many listings until we found the right unit. He then negotiated a great price and helped expedite the closing. MIke was there every step of the way and more. If your looking for a real estate professional that will work hard for you, he's your man.

      - Greg, Exeter
    • Mike Russo is on top of his game! From the first day onward I knew that I had made the right decision to go with him. He helped me find the best home in my price range, helped me to negotiate the price down and also to seal the deal. Dealing with my lender was a headache, but Mike made it so much easier by staying on top of things. He answered my emails, phone calls and texts almost immediately. His schedule revolves around yours and he is always on call. He's extremely personable, and he makes the whole process simpler from beginning to end. It would be silly NOT to choose Mike as your agent.UPDATE: I decided to sell the house and, of course, I chose Mike to be my listing agent. He came over to see the house and made some suggestions of minor improvements/repairs that I could make to increase the value of the house. I headed his words and the house was soon on the market. I was afraid the house would sit, but it sold within two weeks! Once again, Mike made the whole process seamless from end-to-end. I am now a repeat customer and I can recommend Mike both as a buyer's agent and as a listing agent. In fact, I'll look him up again when I move back to RI. Save yourself time and effort and choose Mike; he'll get the job done!

      - Josh, Warwick
    • After researching homes for our move from Miami to Providence, we needed a realtor. We checked out reviews on Zillow since it was the main tool we used to research properties. Of three realtors we called, only Mike followed up and maintained contact. He asked basic questions to understand what we were looking for and created a search agent that e-mailed us newly listed homes that met our criteria every day. He helped us narrow our initial list of 20 homes to our top seven, called each realtor and made appointments to view them in a four hour window the morning after we arrived in Providence. Mike greeted us at the first house at 9am with a clipboard, neatly organized with a printed detail sheet on each property, in the order wed be visiting them. He inspected the homes along with us and provided feedback that proved highly valuable to us during our decision making process, which had a tight window. That day was Friday, September 14 and we wanted to purchase a house by the end of the month. Mike made it happen for us. Once we felt secure about our top choice, we submitted an offer that was below asking price, but what we believed to be reasonable. Four hours later, Mike called us to tell us it had been accepted. We were elated, but we needed Mike's assistance to cover many more tasks since we were in town only for the weekend. He didnt just find us a house. He stayed with us until the deal was closed.He set up and attended an appointment with an inspector, contacted a closing attorney, returned to the house again for a final review with the selling agent to make sure it met fire code, and walked us through the entire closing process remotely. Less than two weeks after first seeing the house, we closed on our new home and packed our bags to leave Miami on September 28. Mike was waiting for us with the keys when we arrived in Providence. We were fortunate just to find an experienced, responsive realtor after reading a few reviews. But Mikes knowledge about old homes and his ability to point out the big ticket repairs to be wary of were crucial for out-of-towners like us looking for our first New England home. We will definitely be giving him a call when we are looking to upgrade our home in a few years. Anyone else who decides to work with him won't be disappointed. Thanks again, Mike.

      - Sean, Providence
    • We were under a time constraint and Mike made sure everything was set for us. He is extremely efficient and responded quickly via email and phone. He made us feel comfortable with him immediately, which made the process enjoyable. During our house hunt he answered all our questions, looked out for our best interest and gave us plenty of options. I would recommend Mike to anyone!

      - Joe, East Greenwich
    • I originally met with MIchael back in the spring with a plan to purchase a home by year end. He laid out a plan and provided me with detailed listings that met most of my specific requests. Once we found the home I wanted to purchase, which by the way with no pressure just knowledgeable advice, we began negotiations. His consideration to detail and responsive return times made this rather painless. Overall from start to finish I was impressed with his expertise and detail in every phase of the transaction.

      - Peter, North Smithfield
    • I had a condo that was impossible to sell and had been on the market for several years. When Mike stepped in, I knew he was going to work like crazy to make the sale and I was confident that he had my best interests in mind. Throughout the entire process, Mike communicated with me regularly and made sure I was up to date. In the end, Mike was able to sell a property that other realtors just could not sell. He is efficient, organized and I highly recommend him to anyone.

      - John, Pawtucket
    • From start to finish, Mike finessed a very tricky real estate transaction with the utmost skill. From intricate details with a VA Loan to handling back-to-back closings like second nature. All of his recommendations were spot on! Has many contacts that are really top notch who facilitated the transaction with their best in the business knowledge. I highly recommend him and will refer anyone I know that needs a PRO Realtor. Thanks Mike!!!

      - Ben, Hope Valley
    • Mke did a great job helping us find our home. He was very knowledgeable about the area we were looking in and he also helped us to see the potential in the property we purchased. As first time homebuyers, Mike was able to get us a closing attorney and a home insurance agent - both for very reasonable rates! We are very happy with our new home and all the help Mike was able to give us

      - RDS, Narragansett
    • Michael was very helpful, informative, and was able to find me the perfect house that had everything I was looking for. He defiantly keeps your likes and dislikes in mind and he was very accommodating. I would highly recommend him!

      - Laurie, Warwick
    • Mike was incredible during our move to Rhode Island. We had a short period of time to find a house and close and Mike made this extremely stressful situation smooth and easy. Since Mike is from Rhode Island, he knows what the good areas are and the ones to stay away from. During our closing, Mike handled everything for us since we were unable to be there. We would definitely recommend Mike to anyone moving to Rhode Island.

      - Joel, Cranston
    • Mike was extremely helpful in helping me buy my first home. I attempted to work with a handful of other agents prior to finding Mike and he was by far the most helpful and responsive person I worked with. The entire process would have been much more difficult if I had not found Mike and his associate Kevin. We found and bought a home we loved faster than I would have ever imagined possible with their help.

      - Barry, North Kingstown
    • We moved from out of state and Mike was exceptional at helping us find the perfect house. He was very knowledgable of the area and was honest about the various locations, which was extremely helpful moving to an area that we knew little about. He was always responsive to any questions we had. We would definitly recommend Mike for anyone moving to RI.

      - Jenn, W Warwick
    • We used Mike Russo as our realtor for a long distance relocation. He came highly recommended to us and far exceeded our expectations. We had a short amount of time to find a house and a tight budget, and Mike helped us find the perfect house. As soon as we contacted him, he got to work immediately on finding listings for us. We only had a weekend in Rhode Island to find a house and Mike spent all weekend with us, helping us find the right place. I highly recommend Mike as a realtor for his timeliness, commitment to his clients, and dedication to helping you find the perfect house.

      - Buyer, Cranston, RI
    • I would highly, highly recommend Mike to anyone needing a home in RI. My husband and I relocated to Providence from the Midwest for medical residency and were on an impossibly tight schedule...and expecting a baby. We didn't think we could possibly find a home in the limited time that we had, until we met Mike. Mike simplified and expedited every aspect of the process for us, making it possible for us to find a wonderful home with only two weekends spent in Providence. He was attentive, knowledgeable, accessible and patient as we navigated the process. He is also extremely well connected to some amazing professionals for every step of the home buying process. He treated us as if we were his top client, when as first time home buyers we were at the very low end of his clientele. He did an incredible amount of groundwork for us, from the home inspection to the closing, enabling us to complete the process remotely. We will not only be using him again, we will certainly recommend him to anyone looking for a realtor.

      - HRS, Warwick
    • I couldn't say enough about Mike Russo...My husband and I relocated to the Providence area from the Midwest for medical residency and had about 2 months to find and close on a house...all while expecting a baby and continuing to work full time. We didn't think buying was possible until we met Mike. He worked very hard to streamline the process, do the groundwork for us, and expedite everything to enable us to find a wonderful home in just 2 weekends. All this even though as first time home buyers we were far from his most expensive clients. We were able to complete the sale and closing almost completely remotely, with Mike and his incredible colleagues doing everything they could to help us through the process. His expertise, attentiveness, and responsiveness were top-notch, as were his network of legal and other professionals. We would certainly encourage anyone to utilize Mike for there real estate needs, especially if you are relocating from out of state.

      - Heather, Warwick
    • We recently bought our first home and had the pleasure of having Mike as our real estate agent. His patience and quick response with our many questions put our minds at ease every step of the way.He was especially helpful in negotiating a great deal for us and working diligently to make sure our closing happened on time. We would highly recommend Mike to anyone who is looking for an agent who is professional, knowledgeable,and hard working. Thanks so much Mike!!

      - Katie, Pawtucket
    • Mike was fantastic to work with from start to finish. He took the time to really understand what my husband and I were looking for and pursued it aggressively. He was dedicated, professional, and responsive. A+.

      - Julia, Narragansett
    • As a military family, we are used to having to move every few years. However, our most recent move was the quickest turn around yet. When our first realtor didn't work out at the last minute, Mike was able to step right in. He managed to line up two full days of showings in just one day. He was knowledgeable, dependable, and easy to keep in contact with, even while we were out of state preparing our previous home for the move. We would highly recommend Mike to any family looking to relocate from out of state.

      - JT, Kingston
    • From the beginning Mike knew what we wanted and was able to find a house and get it to fit in our prince range. He was very professional and was constantly in contact with us throughout the entire process.

      - Kristen, Gaspee
    • Michael was an excellent agent. Always there when I needed him. When I needed to look at the condo again, he was there. I bought a condo and he sold my home. I highly recommend him. Thanks Mike.

      - Eric, Lincoln
    • I can't say enough about the positive experience I had working with Michael. Michael is extremely detailed oriented and responsive to all questions/comments. Emails and phone calls were all returned same-day, if not within minutes. Perhaps more impressive, Michael was able to solicit multiple bids on our home within 30 days in a challenging real estate environment and successfully negotiate/close the transaction within 60 days. I would highly recommend Michael and his team.
