I’ve known Pete for a few years now and to sum it up I would never buy or sell another property with the help of anyone else but Pete. My husband and I have purchased and sold a few homes with Pete’s help, and he has far surpassed our expectations every single time. He’s always super professional, and I truly appreciate his guidance. We always refer Pete to anyone who’s needing a Realtor. I consider Pete, a dear friend.

I appreciated Pete during my entire home buying experience. This was, by far, the best experience I have ever had buying a house. Pete made everything so easy. He put me at ease, gave me advice when I asked for it and just made me feel like I was his only priority. The level of professionalism Pete sets himself to is unprecedented in my experience. He is well organized and prompt with everything. I will use him in future and recommend him to anyone.

We loved working with Pete Russian. Pete is the most professional, outstanding, and amazing real estate agent anyone can have the pleasure of working with. Pete is very friendly and knowledgeable. He really knows a lot about homes and neighborhoods. He was there every step of the way for us. He was very attentive to our needs, followed through on every single detail. I highly recommend Pete.

Pete Russian is amazing! He recently helped me find that perfect home, being so incredibly patient, responsive, and willing to go the extra mile in searching for and viewing so many houses. He is very knowledgeable, earned my trust, and helped make a complicated process a really enjoyable experience. To anyone in search of a real estate agent, I highly recommend Pete!

Pete was very helpful in selling my house and knowledgeable. I am not a man of many words so I will not be able to outline everything he did for me but he was of great aid.

Pete Russian with Realty Austin is professional, knowledgeable, and very helpful. I would be more than happy to recommend Pete. He found a Condo for us in a very short time period as we wanted a place for our daughter, who is attending university in Austin, as my wife and I live in Singapore. We were only in Austin for two weeks so, Pete expedited the process and helped us close on the property smoothly and quickly. Now that our daughter is living in the condo and we are overseas, Pete still helps us.

We just sold a condo, using Pete Russian as our Realtor, and we couldn't be happier!!! He went above and beyond to quickly find a buyer. When one deal fell through, he immediately found a 2nd buyer, within hours! He knew the market and also knew lots of contacts, for us to use, for repairs. He even met contractors at our home, for us, so we didn't have to take off work. Talk about going above and beyond! He can not say enough good things about him!!! I will ALWAYS use him, in the future, for my Realtor.

Pete Russian at Realty Austin is a very charismatic and personable real estate agent who has a profound understanding of the real estate market in Austin and areas surrounding Austin. Pete was insightful and gave valid and honest feedback and encouraged me to make the decisions that were best for me when looking at the properties during my search in becoming a first-time homeowner. Before each viewing, Pete researched the properties and contacted me if there was something that was unfavorable or that could be a detrimental cost for me as a buyer, weeded out the “lemons”, and confirmed which houses on my list that we were going to check out on our agreed upon day and time. Pete was proficient and highly knowledgeable in his real estate craft. He gave great effort and efficiency in time spent researching and looking at houses in my search to finding my new home. As a first-time homebuyer and, now thanks to Pete, homeowner I can honestly say that Pete Russian is a realtor that will not stop until the buyer finds the home that is the best fit! THANK YOU, Pete and Realty Austin!

Pete is a true professional and showed outstanding work ethic during my time working with him. Pete made it very clear from the beginning of the entire process that if I had any questions or concerns with regards to purchasing or selling my home that he would be available at anytime and willing to meet anywhere. This helped to create a very personalized environment and made me feel very comfortable. Pete clearly exemplified his intelligence of the housing market in and around central Texas, and as my personal realtor, insured me that my home would sell at top market value and in a timely manner. Pete was right. My home sold within a matter of weeks at top market value and Pete made the process feel very simple and painless. I have already referred Pete to a few of my co-workers and Pete was referred to me by my father. A clear example Pete's outstanding work.

I now reside with my wife in San Antonio. I have made Pete aware that I would like to work with him in the future if my wife and I ever decide to sell our home here and purchase elsewhere. I know that Pete will get the job done right, get the job done efficiently, and I will not have to worry about anything.

This is the 2nd time that I purchase a home with Pete’s help and as usual I’m delighted to work with him. Pete is very professional and knowledgeable and just has a special way to make things smooth. I feel that he truly has my best interest at heart and I love that. I never feel rushed or pressured with placing an offer or offer amount, etc. My family and I have moved quite a bit and before I met Pete, I can honestly say that I hated the experience of buying a house when it should be a fun thing. Pete has 100% changed that for me, I enjoy working with him as well as the entire process. There’s no way that I would ever go to any other agent and both my husband and I recommend Pete every time we get a chance to.

We worked with Pete Russian with Realty Austin to sell our home and purchase a new home. Everything happened exactly the way Pete explained it would. He was available anytime and we appreciate him tremendously. Because of our success and ease with selling our home, we have since referred many friends to Pete. He's very knowledgeable, professional, and honest. He's there for his clients and sees to their best interests. Thank you, Pete!

Pete Russian was wonderful!

He was very professional, knowledgeable, and helpful. As an older client, I appreciated his patience and kindness. He kept me in the loop and explained the process well.

Pete was recommended by a member of my family and we recommend him to anyone in the Austin area.

Pete was amazing. I was a treasured friend before this and I expected the best. We received way beyond that! Spades of information, lots of listings, answered any questions, and offered any assistance he could. I have already recommended Pete to everyone I know for listings. He helped us work smarter and get exactly what we wanted.

We just closed the sale of our house, and Pete Russian was our Realtor from Realty Austin. This was by far one of the best experiences I have had in selling our home, and Pete did a SUPERB job for us! He was very helpful, and explained every step of the process. Whenever I had a question, he was just a phone call or text away and no matter how late it was or how early it was in the day, I always got a prompt response. If it wasnt for Pete, I dont think the house would have sold as quickly and we are Extremely Satisfied with the entire experience. Pete worked extremely hard getting this house sold and appreciate everything that he did. When we are in the market for another one, Pete will be the one to call!!! Thanks Pete!!!

Pete helped me a lot and explained things since this was the first house that I purchased. I had never dealt with many of these things. He was recommended to me by my brother and sister-in-law. I was glad that he was able to help me get my first home because there were many times that I had simple questions that might have seemed common sense to experienced home buyers. He was also easy to get a hold of whenever I had questions and I would recommend him to friends and family.

Not only did I gain an agent, I gained a friend. I trust Pete! Not one time did I question anything he advised me. Based on his great interpersonal skills and knowledge, I knew I could trust him and he would not steer me wrong. I have quite a hectic schedule and not much flexibility. Pete worked with me, which I truly appreciated. He constantly kept in touch with me. I did have any concerns, he reassured me he would follow-up with the sellers or agent, and get back with me.

One day I received an overwhelming amount of emails from the title company. I can admittedly say that I thought, "Oh my, what have I got myself into." I called Pete and he reassured me to not worry and that he will look through it to make sure all was up to par. I felt a sense of relief to know I had Pete on my side.

Seriously, Pete is awesome! I will keep in touch with him because he is truly a great agent! I will definitely refer him to friends and even strangers who are looking for a great place to live!

Working with Pete was amazing AGAIN! He helped me sell my house in Austin and buy my house in Hutto back in 2009! This time my family and I relocated out-of-state and Pete helped us sell our house while we were out of town. He has been absolutely AMAZING! If we ever move back to the Austin area I will be contacting Pete! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Pete is truly a blessing! I've used him for the purchase of one home and the sale of three homes and couldn't imagine using anyone else... He goes above and beyond your expectations to ensure top price and that everything in the process goes smooth without any hiccup... Even if a slight issue would arise he would have it handled before it became an issue... Pete is a superb realtor and a huge asset to your company... Hang on to him :) When asked for a recommendation for a realtor, I without hesitation give Pete's contact information...

Pete Russian is the BEST realtor you could possible ask for. My family and I relocated from Austin to Denver and needed to sell our house in Hutto. Pete was AMAZING!!! We did everything via the phone, text and mobile notary. We had to have some repairs done and not only did Pete help me find reliable businesses but also over-saw the work repairs being done! I couldn't have had a better realtor!!! One AMAZING man!!! He definitely goes above and beyond.........LOVE HIM!!!!

Pete has been totally awesome! My husband and I have dealt with many realtors in the past and Pete is truly one of a kind. I've always dreaded having to deal with realtors but that's in the past now that I've met Pete. Pete was recommended by a neighbor of ours and I'm so happy that we decided to go with him for our realty needs. He did not disappoint!! He's always very professional, super helpful and incredibly quick! Pete continues to exceed my expectations over and over!!! We have recommended him to friends and neighbors and will always continue to do so!! Thanks Pete :)

We had a terrific experience with Pete Russian. He always made us feel that we were a priority. He was also extremely knowledgeable when it came to answering our questions and concerns. We look forward to recommending him to our friends and family.

It isn't possible to say enough good things about Pete. He was always available even into the wee hours of the night, showed houses in very short notice and answered an endless stream of texts with endless questions. We are so happy on our new home and that would not have been possible without Pete. He went the extra mile in every way and we have a home that is perfect for us as a result. So yes, to say he exceeded our expectations is an understatement.

My wife and I can't say enough good things about Pete Russian. He's proactive, professional, knowledgeable, prompt, an excellent communicator, and a strong advocate for his clients. Working with Pete was a pleasure, and he got us a far better price for our house than our previous property manager told us was possible. We live in another state, and were concerned about the challenges of selling our home remotely, but Pete made it easy. He started working for us over the phone before we even arrived. We only met him in person twice in the short time we were there, but he treated us like friends when we left town. If we could somehow transplant Pete to Virginia to represent us out here, we would. He's easily the best real estate agent we've ever worked with, and we'd highly recommend him to anyone looking for an agent. Honestly, we are so pleased with our experience working with Pete. He was just fantastic, and has set a very high bar for any one we work with here. We just found a great agent here in Northern Virginia, but my wife and I both said, he's no Pete. For us, he has become the measure by which we'll judge all other agents.

I would like to start by saying I had the best experience I've ever had dealing with Pete Russian. He made our process as easy as possible given the current market conditions being extremely hot. Pete made every effort to make the sale of our home and the purchase of our new home as easy as possible. I was quite concerned after the sale of our home in one day and confronted with finding a home on a deadline without sacrificing what we wanted. Pete reassured me over and over that we would be able to find the home for our family with the right amount of patience and dedication. Once again Pete was right and made a great effort to work with the Realtors, lending, and title companies to help us get closed early. Pete also went above and beyond helping us rap into his network to get inspections (Home Team Inspections thank you) and contractors to help with getting our new home settled and get some light touch up work at our previous home. I felt like between my wife and two children we were going to drive Pete nuts but he never showed any sign of wear; he stood strong and had conviction in his abilities to get the job done. I cannot express how thankful I am for choosing Pete who my wife luckily found online by pure luck over the two other Realtors we interviewed who were referrals from friends and family. Pete made our dreams come true and Madilyn, Ethan, Amy and myself all really appreciate the hard work and patience Pete gave to us; he really made us feel like we were his only clients (even though I know we were not) and it showed in everything he did. Thank you Pete for such a wonderful experience; I owe you a STEAK!

Pete Russian was an excellent Realtor! We could not have asked for anything more. He was prompt in his replies to any questions we had, he texted me almost daily to keep me up to date on what was going on, he was honest about what needed to be fixed on our house prior to listing, and made sure we had signs/fliers/internet postings advertising our home. We received 2 offers and sold in 10 days after 21 showings and 1 open house. Signing the closing paperwork happened separately (due to a minor medical emergency on the part of the buyer) and Pete picked up and drove our paperwork to the title company so that I did not have to pack up my kids in the car to drive to the office. He was conscientious, courteous, and helpful in every way possible. I would highly recommend him to anyone in my acquaintance.

Paul & Brenna Round

I absolutely loved my experience with Pete! He made the home selling process smooth and stress free! Was always there to answer our questions, always answered the phone or was prompt in returning our calls and truly made us feel like we were his only clients. His marketing for our home was spot on with professional pictures, advertising on numerous websites and hosting open houses. I couldn't have asked for a better, more knowledgeable realtor and couldn't recommend him more!

Jennifer R.

Peter was awesome! He helped us through a somewhat stressful time. We were in the process of selling our home out of town and moving to the Austin area. Our home sold quicker than expected and Peter made purchasing our next home smoother. He was very accommodating with our crazy travel schedule, showing us homes on the weekends. Having e-documents was also great, especially since we were out of town. His vast knowledge and expertise was greatly appreciated since we did not have a lot of time to spare. I could not recommend Peter highly enough. He is a great communicator, responds quickly to phone calls/texts/emails. I can't thank him enough for all that he has done for our family.

Vanessa S.

Excellent agent! Pete helped me rent a house and I will definitely be calling him again when I look to buy. He really knows the market and is a pleasure to work with. Very thorough, knowledgeable, reliable and very effective!

Mary Gatlin

Pete sold our house in Pflugerville and also acted as our representative on the purchase of a new home in Round Rock. Pete's information was always helpful, accurate and in line with our interests. We had a crazy month with multiple offers and having to back out of a house we put an offer on. During all the craziness, Pete remained calm, gave advice that was in our best interest and never at any point did he get pushy in anyway. Pete does well in his profession because you can tell he isn’t just in it for the money, he is in it for the experience. He truly values his client’s satisfaction over his commission.

Jason Kjar

My wife and I were so blessed to have Pete as our agent. He was knowledgeable of the market and helped us find a home that met all of our needs and exceeded our expectations. The next time we enter the buying or selling market, we will call Pete to represent us.

Kyle Tubbs

The idea of purchasing a home is overwhelming for first time home buyers like myself. I had very little experience in the real estate business and was full of doubts and fears. Pete was a pleasure to work with. He helped guide me through this important step in my life. His knowledge of the market and approachability immediately welcomed my questions. Pete worked around my schedule and showed me as many homes as I desired. I appreciated Pete mostly for his honesty as a person without the pressure to make a sale. His integrity clearly shows in his work ethic. I have and will continue to recommend Pete Russian as my preferred real estate agent.

Matt J.

Pete's professionalism showed in his efficiency to respond to any questions that I had about the home buying process. Whether it is by phone or via email, Pete always seemed to respond within a matter of minutes. I felt as though I was encountering everything for the first time and rightfully so, as a first time homebuyer. However, Pete was always accessible to help guide me through any situation and was always there to answer any questions. I gave Pete a price range in the beginning of our home search; a price range that I felt comfortable working with and he never deviated from it. He treated me more as a trustworthy friend who happened to be more knowledgeable about the home buying process than I was while still staying within my criteria. I appreciated Pete's professionalism, and efficiency as a realtor and I am thankful to have worked with such an individual, especially with something of great importance to me; my home.

Fernando Ibarra Jr.

Very pleased with the results. He was efficient and found exactly what we wanted. Thanks Pete!

Miguel G.

Pete did a great job helping us sell our house. He was very clear on the process, the best way to sell our house, etc. He helped during the negotiation process by being honest with us. I greatly appreciated Pete's assistance in the selling of our home.

Jason Worthen

Pete was not only very professional and worked hard to find and show us houses that met our criteria, but he also provided invaluable advice about the entire process. After speaking with him you will quickly discover he is very smart and capable. My wife found him by chance through a listing, after which he made the process as painless as humanly possible. If in the future we decide to move or buy another property I will definitely use him. Now we just have to convince him to do commercial work as well.

Ralph Pina

You are a true professional, and EXCELLENT at what you do. This was evidenced by how easy you made things look and feel throughout the entire experience. We have no reservations about telling everyone about the pride and quality of work you have demonstrated with us.
