Born and raised just 30 minutes over the Benjamin Franklin bridge in the farmlands of southern New Jersey, Russell has considered Philadelphia his favorite city since as early as he can remember. Starting in high school when he would shop with friends along South Street or join his parents for a show at the Walnut Street Theatre he quickly became enthralled by the diverse culture and abundant energy of the city life.
After graduating from Rutgers University in 2011, he decided to explore the country and moved west to California. In just 2 short years he felt that call of city life again and moved back to the east coast but this time to the city which he had always loved, Philadelphia. With a strong background in marketing and customer service, Russell found himself working as a leasing agent for one of Philadelphia’s largest luxury townhome developers.
From there his career in the real estate industry began to take off. Within the first year, Russell acquired his Pennsylvania Real Estate License and was promoted to the Director of Marketing. In this role he leased and managed over 350 new construction rental properties in many of Philadelphia most highly regarded neighborhoods.
In June of 2016, Russell joined the MyPhillyRealty team and began his journey in the realm of real estate sales. His intricate knowledge of new construction and luxury properties has proven to be a valuable asset in helping our clients find the home that best suits their needs. Russell is always happy to answer any and all questions so that the home of your dreams can soon become your reality. If you’re looking to purchase a home in Philadelphia, contact Russell today!
