    Jessica helped us find and purchase our dream retirement home in Afton. We had very particular wants, such as single story living, quality construction, privacy and very importantly, a great view. It took a while to find the right place and Jessica was very patient with us and attentive to our desires. Also we lived 3 hours away, so she had to handle the details and take the initiative on many chores. This was particularly true with the closing. We had not purchased a home for 26 years and the real estate world has changed much in that time. Also our previous homes were in North Carolina and real estate procedures vary considerably by state. So we trusted Jessica and she kept the ball rolling until the purchase was completed in the timeframe we hoped for. I highly recommend her.

    Jessica helped us sell an Investment property remotely. She was able to quickly stage multiple open house events, provide offer information with clarity and recommendations honestly. Very easy to work with. Just give her the green light! You won't be disappointed!

    We went with Jessica to find us a house in the Charlottesville area. At the time we were living in Texas and Jessica made buying a home across the country seem simple and easy . She was extremely helpful and extremely responsive to any and all of our many questions. We did a 180 on all of our requests in a house and without missing a beat, she found us our dream home. I couldn’t be more satisfied!

    My husband and I had two days to find a house, as we were moving across the country on VERY short notice. I knew the type of house I was looking for, but not much about the city's neighborhoods. Jessica drove us between houses so we'd be able to look at the areas, and also gave us an overview of each neighborhood as we drove. We ended up seeing 8 houses total over the two days in what would otherwise have been an overwhelming whirlwind, but Jessica's good humor and insightfulness helped keep us grounded. We found the home of our dreams, and Jessica helped us through the bidding process, as well as through the whole purchase process (which is different from the process of buying a home in our home state). She has also been an invaluable resource with contractors/repairmen and has continued to provide excellent support even after the transaction closed. I cannot recommend her enough!

    Jessica is an amazing realtor! My husband and I are both first time home buyers. Jessica is very patient to all of our questions and request. I was concerning of the noise from ongoing construction around a new townhome. Jessica proactively suggested to meet me at the townhome on Monday afternoon (when construction team is working) to test the sound-proof of the townhome :) Any problem we escalated to her she would step in immediately and resolve it asap. 10/10 recommendation!

    In the middle of the crazy housing market, I had to move quickly from out of state. I emailed Jessica Russo and she responded quickly, we discussed my needs in a home and then set up a date to see available homes. I did not have a lot of time to drive back and forth from out of state, which was a big obstacle. Jessica listened to the details I gave her, selected a variety of excellent homes to see, and I was able to select home immediately. Buying a home in Virginia is a bit different from the state I was moving from and Jessica guided me through the whole process, beginning to end. Jessica paid attention details and kept me informed of upcoming deadlines, meetings, and paper work/documents. She made the home buying process seamless and painless because she is thorough, pays attention to details and communicates well with the buyer and the seller. I highly recommend Jessica Russo for your realtor.

    Jessica’s calm, kind, expert guidance made the almost year-long, complex process of building, buying and moving into our new home in Charlottesville from out of state an absolute pleasure. We worked with her both long distance and in person as we laid out our goals for our new home, searched existing homes, made the decision to build, and planned and oversaw construction and completion. Jessica’s counsel and advice was invaluable at all decision points along the way, from structural and design choices to financing. She was always readily available by phone, email and text, and made it a point to be with us in person as we met with the builder multiple times over many months and then did walkthroughs and inspections with us right through to move-in. Jessica was our advocate and enthusiastic cheerleader throughout what can be a challenging process but for us, thanks to her and a superb builder, was smooth sailing. The result is a beautiful home that we truly love. We recommend Jessica without hesitation for all real estate needs!

    Jessica was amazing throughout the entire process of purchasing my home. The complexity of the process was intimidating to me as a first time homebuyer (especially while buying with a VA loan), and Jessica never failed to make me feel comfortable and informed about each step. When searching for my home, Jessica keyed in on what I wanted and needed in my search faster than I did myself - I came to trust her recommendations about new properties and valued her input about the local area. Her immense understanding of the process and local area led to me never having an unanswered question. After going under contract for my home Jessica ensured that I was well-informed and understood every part of the process. There were moments where I discovered some piece of work that had to happen behind the scenes, only to find that I didn't need to worry about it as she had already taken care of it. Nothing about the process - from the traditional steps to the additional VA requirements - ever made Jessica falter in any way. The icing on the cake of having Jessica as my realtor was benefiting from her negotiating skills - in the end, I got paid to purchase my home! All in all, Jessica's attention to detail, excellent communication skills, and extensive knowledge made purchasing my first home an (almost) stress-free process filled with excitement and joy - which is exactly how it should be for everyone, and why I will recommend Jessica to anyone I know looking to purchase a home.

    Every step of the way Jessica was there for us. Very familiar to the Crozet and Charlottesville area, which is what we were hoping for in a realtor. She was quick to respond and easily accessible for a smooth buying process. We would recommend Jessica, especially to first time homebuyers like ourselves.

    I recommend Jessica and team to everyone looking to buy or sell their home! She helped me buy my home 6 years ago and of course I contacted her again when I was ready to sell and buy again recently. It was a no brainer. She is such a joy to work with; pleasant, extra communicative, professional, knowledgeable of the area, and has your best interest in mind. She is on top of everything, all the time and guided me through the whole process with ease. I really don't know how she does it!
