What Our Clients Are Saying

Drew and Olivia were phenomenal to work with! They helped us understand the market, offer a competitive bid, and negotiate with the seller to ensure we were not left with any unnecessary liabilities. Not only did Drew and Olivia help us navigate the process of buying our first time home from start to finish but they also supported us post-close with everything we needed from pool and lawn maintenance to paying our HOA. He will absolutely be working with them again when the time comes! James Kane Buyer
Drew Russell and Olivia Crockett worked so well, both individually and together as a team, to make my home sale experience, from listing to closing, the Real Estate equivalent of a great work of art. Every detail was handled with exquisite professional guidance, courtesy, and thoroughness. They have my most enthusiastic recommendation. David Eisner Buyer
Drew has done an outstanding job for us for many years and several transactions. He is extremely knowledgeable and practical, and we've always felt fully informed and equipped to make decisions based on his expertise. Drew clearly values the long term relationships he builds with his clients, and it shows in every interaction. Dave Romine Buyer
Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness Drew and his team are absolute pros. Drew takes a personal interest in the transaction. We have used other brokers in the area, but Drew is hands-down the best. We have no reservations in giving Drew our highest recommendation TDS Buyer
We have had Drew as our realtor for nearly 15 years now, and he has served us and our families over this time. He has helped us buy and sell both our personal homes and homes for our business. Drew works with the most integrity and diligence, and he puts his clients' needs and desires first. He will work hard before, during, and after a sale to make sure that everything goes as smoothly as possible. We wouldn't work with anyone else! Jennifer Loomis Buyer
Drew Russell is absolutely outstanding. He has helped our family buy and sell multiple homes in the Sarasota and Bradenton area over the past 10+ years and always provided above and beyond service. He is an absolute professional and his positive and upbeat manner helped all parties calmly find the right home and work through the negotiation and closing processes. We always felt that he had our best interests at heart and never felt pressured in any way. He is very smart, and has a lot of experience in the area so knows the right people to work with to get a deal done. I trust Drew with any real estate transaction, and have already recommended him to several friends and family members - and will continue to do so! You absolutely cannot go wrong in choosing Drew for your real estate needs. Michelle Jones Buyer
Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value My wife and I recently hired Drew to help us relocate from Parrish to Sarasota and couldn't be any happier with the results. Throughout the process, Drew and Olivia were extremely professional, responsive and knowledgeable. Drew's vast marketing resources provided our home with tons of exposure and, as a result, it sold in less than 10 days during a very tumultuous time in the real estate market. On the buy side, Drew was extremely helpful in selecting an area of Sarasota that best fit the needs of our family as well as navigating the construction of our new home--which was no small task. I have already referred Drew and Olivia to my friends and family and would use them again for any future real estate needs. Matthew Erjavec Buyer
Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value Through the years we’ve sold many homes and Drew is the best agent we’ve ever worked with. We carefully researched the top agents in Sarasota and whittled it down to 3. We interviewed each and picked Drew because he is smart, likable, straightforward, and knew the market better than the others. Drew’s average list price was higher than our home, but we banked on him giving us the same attention and he did! Issues always arise in the sale process and Drew handled them great. It’s funny, it’s been three months since Drew sold our home and last night we were talking about if we didn’t have Drew as our agent our home could still be on the market. Christina Whalen Buyer
It was such a pleasure working with you. You made the entire process so much easier and less stressful than what we had experienced before. You were always extremely professional, and remained quite calm during the negotiating process. We were also quite impressed with your marketing tools. We were really not expecting to sell in 60 days, but you made it happen! If you ever need a slogan, it should be ‘Drew delivers!’ as you certainly did, well beyond our expectations. Kevin S. Buyer
I worked with Drew Russell on the sale of the above property in Nokomis. As always, Drew was professional and knowledgeable and sold the property for a good price in a reasonable amount of time. Drew is always professional, knowledgeable, and courteous. I enjoy working with him very much. Jennifer P. Buyer
We were represented in our recent home purchase by Drew Russell and could not have been more satisfied with his services and performance. He always returned our messages promptly, and that goes a long way with me. My father who, in his 70s has worked with a lot of realtors, told me without my asking that Drew was the best realtor he had ever come across. Drew exuded honesty and seemed to have our best interests close to his heart, even more than his own commission. Drew did a fantastic job. David H. & Yuka I. Buyer
When you are a couple of thousand miles away, it is really important to have someone like Drew looking over things. His counsel was always correct. If we should ever happen to re-enter the Florida real estate market, Drew would be the first person we will call. As a retired businessman, I know that you must surround yourself with really good people to be successful. If all of your agents are as good as Drew, you and your firm have much success to enjoy. Jim & Sherri J. Buyer
Drew Russell was very professional and accommodating through the entire process. Drew was extremely helpful and worked with me during the entire sale. He went above and beyond what would have been expected. Mark F. Buyer
Before I arrived to view potential condos, Drew canvassed the area and narrowed the field. The selections were great...and this process saved many hours. Drew revealed (my) very specific intentions to the seller...and within 24 hours, after intense negotiations, the deal was set. I have purchased many homes...and never had a real estate agent like Drew with this level of service. I strongly recommend him Raymond S. Buyer
We found Drew to be personable, knowledgeable, helpful, respectful, courteous, and very professional. In less than 3 weeks he was able to secure an offer and negotiate a price acceptable to both parties. My wife and I felt that Drew’s actions, communications, and personal interactions were beyond reproach. It is without reservation that we would recommend Drew Russell as a Realtor of distinction and one that would be an asset to a buyer or a seller. Michael & Brenda J. Buyer
My husband and I are incredibly impressed with Drew. His ability to sell our home during the start of the Covid-19 quarantine. The first buyer we had backed out and we were surprised he found another buyer within days. His marketing materials were the best I’ve seen, his knowledge in market analysis was spot on, and he and his team made us feel like we were top priority. If you want a realtor who is trustworthy and dedicated to you as a client, we highly recommend Drew. Steve & Laurie McDowell Buyer
Drew Russell was recommended to us by Carol Stewart in Boca Grande. Our relationship with Carol goes back many years and when looking for a referral in Sarasota, we knew Carol would lead us in the right direction. The experience with Drew was exceptional. He listened to our requirements and in a very short time had a list of properties that could meet our needs. We found Drew to be considerate, responsive and highly professional. He never tired of our questions and kept our best interests at hand. We would be happy to recommend Drew and will definitely work with him again. Bill & Cathy K. Buyer
We selected Drew based on 'good chemistry' and actual past success in Silver Oak. Drew managed the entire process from start to finish, from the listing agreement through a line item explanation of the closing form and every step along the way, we couldn’t be more pleased. The successful offer came 18 days after our listing hit MLS – excellent! I would heartily recommend (and have) Drew for any future real estate needs, be it selling or buying. Barry & Cynthia W. Buyer
