  • Thomas helped me buy a home

      Review from Team Member Jessica Bunone - I cant say enough wonderful things about Jessica. After going through a few realtors and feeling like we were always an after thought - we came across Jessica when we had an interest in viewing a property in Oakland. She was so quick to respond and genuinely made us feel like we were her main priority the whole 3 months we worked with her. We had 2 homes fall through and she continued to be energized and excited about showing us homes every weekend whenever we asked her to be available. Her schedule was always flexible and she sent us homes immediately as new properties came on the market. In a sellers market, she always advised us with the greatest decisions as first time home buyers. If you want to work with someone who truly feels like your friend and does not pressure you - she really is the perfect person to work with. We will recommend her to all of our friends that have interest in buying homes. Fast forward 3 months - we are closing on our new home in Glen Rock and we are so sad to part ways with Jessica! We hope to remain friends and work with her again in the future. She is REALLY one of a kind in a market filled with "salesy" people

                      I would recommend Chopper Russo to anyone buying or selling a home in Oakland. He knows this market better than anyone and leverages this knowledge to do the best for his clients. I selected Chopper to represent me in the sale of my home because I really liked the strategy he presented. This plan led to an extremely successful open house and multiple above asking offers! Chopper's warm support got me personally through sticky negotiations. I am now getting ready for closing with a profit I never imagined to have.

                      • Recently purchased a home with Gene and Chopper, and can't say enough about their expertise and professionalism. Gene went above and beyond to obtain information related to properties, and skillfully handled the offer process. They have working relationships with countless professionals in the area, and are able to help with many needs beyond just the real estate transaction. If you need a realtor in Oakland/surrounding area, go straight to the Chopper Russo team!

                      • Chopper's vast local knowledge is one of many outstanding attributes. Perhaps his best is the relationships with people he's developed over a long career. A "Rolodex" to connect buyers and sellers. He's always available when you need him. Your real estate transaction is safe and sound.

From the first day we met him, we noticed how honest and open he was and his commitment and dedication to helping my husband and I find our first home was very clear. He was very patient with us and took the time to understand our likes and dislikes. He continuously went out of his way to work around our busy schedule to show us homes. Throughout the entire process, he remained truthful and transparent, which we absolutely loved. He walked us through what to expect at each stage and stood by our sides and made himself always available. We would recommend him over and over again to prospective home-buyers are are very thankful that we had him as our realtor.
