Amber Russell, Broker/Owner
Over The Moon Realty, Inc.
About Amber

Amber is the broker/owner of Over The Moon Realty, Inc., a very successful brokerage on the Monterey Peninsula. Her background as a consistent top producer at Sotheby's International Realty, an educator for more 25 years, and her experience in negotiation, helped her successfully launch Over the Moon Realty, voted a Neighborhood Favorite four years in a row. This also makes her a smart choice for clients looking for more than the cookie cutter corporate brokerage. HomeLight ranks Amber as one of the top agents for selling homes for top dollar and as one of the top agents for helping buyers find their dream home. Our database shows that Amber consistently sells homes after receiving multiple offers, often over list price. How? Property preparation - you don't get a second chance to make a first impression." Amber has a deep appreciation for military families and the surrounding communities who support them. When her husband was stationed overseas for a year, she attributes her friends, clients, and neighbors for helping her make it through the year and is forever grateful for the warm homecoming her husband received in the community. "We love our community and want to be of service. That’s why a portion of Over the Moon’s proceeds are donated to local high schools where I’ve established a scholarship geared toward graduating seniors who will be attending colleges/universities out of state. I call it Spread Your Wings.” For Amber, real estate is more than a business. It’s about building relationships, making a difference, and helping people move into another stage in their lives. “I think real estate is seen as a transaction, something you have to go through,” she says. “I think it should be an enjoyable experience for everybody. It’s about bringing people together to achieve their goal.” Originally from Southern California, Amber has spent time teaching journalism and English, as a high school and community college counselor, and is a certified conflict mediator. She’s also a published author, collaborates with a producer for her own real estate videos and commercials, and was featured on HGTV’s hit show “Tiny House Hunters.” In fact, Over the Moon’s very first client, Rick Barnett, founder of the Masters of Light Gallery and National Archive, selected Amber’s brokerage to sell his historical building, a city landmark, the Harry Ashland Greene Mansion at 361 Lighthouse Ave. in Monterey. “Amber Russell is my real estate professional. When it came time to represent the sale of one of Monterey’s most important properties, I wanted to trust in only the best. And Amber is the best,” said Barnett.

It’s crucial to partner with someone you trust, so make sure you’re looking for an agent who can answer all of your questions with confidence during the interview. During this process, you want to get to know the agent’s business and find out how well they know the area. You’re listening for things that signal experience, expertise in your community, and workload.

When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in Pacific Grove?
The best window to contact an agent to sell your home is anywhere from three to six months in advance of your list date.

The right time to hire a real estate agent depends on the temperature of the housing market. For example, the best time to sell in Pacific Grove is in May. And since it takes around 3 months to close on a home, you should list in February. We recommend that you hire a real estate agent as soon as you're thinking of selling your home. Generally speaking, that's anywhere from 3 to 6 months prior to your desired move date.
