About Jim Russell


Jim, I want to thank you for your professionalism and integrity, you did everything you said you would do and then some. Your knowledge of the market was impressive and right on point. If I had 10 more homes, I would list them all with you. Once again thank you my friend. Best wishes
Eddy Garcia


Jim is a great realtor and friend. I’ve known him for many years and he’s helped me and my family purchase and sell homes over the years. He’s a trusted and professional realtor and I will continue to use him as my agent. Thanks again Jlm!

Ron and Kathy Mayer


It was our pleasure. We will definitely refer friends. God Bless you our friend

Dale and Wanda Poulter


Jim Russell did a great job for me and I’m satisfied with the help he provided in buying my home. I would definitely do business with him again in the future. He made the process both simple and convenient and was very patient through it all.

Thank you Jim

Carlos Garcia


Jim did a great job of selling my place! It sold quickly at an excellent price. This was my second time using Jim's service and it never disappointed me. You can always expect him to be an effective communicator and a man with great knowledge in Real Estate. Would strongly recommend him to anybody!
Grant Scheynost


Thank You for all you did. We sure felt more at ease with you there when it was sketchy.

David & Lisa Potter

Jim Russell is the most dedicated agent I have worked with to buy property. We recently bought a property at Rough River and Jim knows the area better than any! He was competent, professional, timely and our advocate at all times! I will recommend Jim to all of my Kentucky family and friends!

Matthew & Jeanna Harris


You were wonderful, very helpful, and went above and beyond to help us.
Danny and Tammie Winn


Jim, we would like to say thank you for the excellent service you provided us in the sale of our Lake property. You not only sold it in 3 days but helped us through most of the process while we were in Florida! You were friendly, caring and honest right from the beginning and we feel like we’ve made a friend. We were Blessed that you were recommended to us and you will be our first choice if we ever need a Realtor again. Thanks so much for all your help.
Joe and Sandy Lentz


We highly recommend Jim Russell. He is professional, knowledgeable, honest, and fair. He never beats around the bush and gets down to business. Plus, with his pleasant personality, he is perfect for all real estate needs. He keeps an open line of communication, takes good care of his clients, and leaves them with no worries. We feel very fortunate to have had him as our agent.

David & Sharon Barker

Jim .... Just wanted to "thank you" for not only finding the home of our choice but also selling our old one. Everything involved in both selling our old home and buying our new one was very professional. Your honesty, integrity, work habits, as well as your professionalism make you the man for the job. I would highly recommend you to anyone selling or buying a home.

Thank you,
JJack & Monika Coates


You will never know how much I needed your trust and expertise now under the circumstances. I thank God for you and you are an answer to my prayers. /span>

Larry McCoy


Jim....I want to thank you for the excellent services you provided me and potential buyers of my property at 3813 Dixie Highway. That stretch of Dixie Highway has been victim of a declining interest in investors and I thought it would take a year or more to sell it. Thanks to your active marketing and your long standing positive reputation in the community, the sale occurred months before I anticipated. Also, I was extremely pleased with the final results of our negotiations conducted through you to the buyer. Certainly I will recommend your services to anyone with whom I have the opportunity.

Charlie Horton


I want to thank you for the excellent job you did with the marketing and sale of my property. The closing went very smoothly.

Charles Horton


I can't imagine having a better home-buying experience than what Jim provided. He displayed every desirable trait that one would want in a realtor, or a friend for that matter: honest opinions, clear communication, flexible schedule, broad knowledge, detailed focus, and an "I've got your back" attitude. I would recommend Jim to any person who asks for a reference, without hesitation.

 Dan & Angela Renz


I want to thank you again for your kindness, caring and friendship, with zero judgement towards us... A seemingly lost art in this world gone MAD. It's our strong belief that everyone crosses pathways for a reason, be it good or bad, and if one searches deeply enough... there is always a positive message to take from it. You were not our realtor, but we certainly would have called you had we known the way Zillow worked. However, we feel in our hearts that Dena might have need a needed that financial *blessing* at this moment in time. The positive end result, we've all forged newfound friendships... what a blessing!

Julz Newbie & Lisa Gentry

We had used Jim Russell several years ago when we bought our house and we were so pleased that when I needed to sell my mother’s house, I would only use Mr. Russell. He is so so good at what he does. I cannot believe that we got over $20,000 more than I ever thought we could get. What a great job and he is so pleasant to work with. Keep up the great job.

Virgil and Patricia Lumley



On behalf of Charles and I, we would like to say THANK YOU! You were a blessing more than you can imagine. I wish you much success and great health!!

Charles and Junelle Anderson

I want to "THANK YOU" again so very much!!! We appreciate all you did and we know it wasn't easy. We're finally in our new patio home and we love it very much. I know there were lots of issues with the buyer loan process but you were GREAT in keeping us posted throughout the whole process. You provided the same service you did 35 years ago when we purchased our first house with you. You're the BEST!!!

Thanks again
Leo and Betty Lewis


Thank you for the opportunity working with you and to help me sell my home. I am greatly appreciated in everything you did to help me to understand from the beginning step by step of the process. Learning how to be patient, take notes, and ask questions if needed. Thank you once again for your time and effort in making the process a success. I was very satisfied.

Patricia Savage



Thanks for your services and we would highly recommend you and use your services in the future.

Otis and Maria Carey



I can’t tell you how much I appreciate all that you did for me when I purchased my house. Your knowledge of all that it entails made me feel very secure in helping to make decisions. I referred you to sell my friend’s house and she too was very pleased. Thanks again for all your hard work and taking my calls, even the after hours ones!

Paula O’Bryan


Thanks for the great job you did in selling our home. I am very grateful with all the help you gave us in getting this done.

Thanks again!
Jamie Meffert


Jim, Thanks for a job well done even though it took a few months to get it closed thru no fault to you. I was very pleased with the end results, thanks again,

Jim Leonard Allen,Rick and Beck Thomas


The first time I met Jim Russell as my Realtor he was very patient and understanding. He walked me through every step of the process and if there was any problem he made sure that it was taken care of from start to finish. I will continue to let people know about him and how he treated me and made the procedure simple to understand and simple to go though. It's been over 20 years and he hasn't changed, His service and dedication is still as excellent as the day I met him 20 years ago. I recently referred a family member and she told me he was doing an excellent job and she was very satisfied.

Mary Covington


Thanks for the great job you did. We’re very grateful that you represented us.

Don and Teresa Huber

Jim, it was great to have you as my realtor!!! God Bless you and He Blessed me when He sent you to me. I am going to miss you!! Thank you so so much!!!

Ann Trimble


Working with you in the sale of our patio home and during the most stressful times in our world now, You have made it as pleasant as possible and would love to refer you to any one buying or selling property. It is so refreshing to work with a skilled professional!!

Barbara Shake

Jim's experience affords him the ability to be professional and knowledgeable and his honest character makes him a diligent worker. He has a gift of making people feel at ease. I was dealing with a difficult estate and he was always courteous and informative and his advice and directives were spot on. He is a pleasure to work with and I was very satisfied in the outcome of selling our family home at the lake. I would definitely recommend him to anyone and would use him again. I appreciated his help in a difficult situation.

Sharon Ambrose


Jim, "Thank You" for all you did for me and my husband helping us sell our home, it sold very quick, you always let me know what was happening at all times. I would recommend you to my friends and family.

Thank You
Steven and Cathy Powers


Jim is an excellent realtor who guided me through the process of buying a home for the first time. Being an effective communicator, Jim kept me updated on everything and answered all of my questions in a timely manner. I strongly recommend Jim if you're looking for a Realtor with strong knowledge and professionalism.

Grant Scheynost


Jim did an awesome job representing us in our home purchase. He was a tireless advocate for interests. And his knowledge of the industry is superb. Glad he was on OUR side.

Rich and Angie Gimmel


This was our first experience buying a home, and although it was a little challenging, Jim was there for us every step of the way. He treated us like family and was sure to answer all of our questions — no matter how off the wall they were. He checked in with us frequently throughout the process and even after closing. Basically, he always went above and beyond the normal role of a realtor. Without Jim's expertise and knowledge of the housing market in Louisville, I'm not sure what we would've done! We recommend Jim to anyone who is in the market for buying or selling property.

Hunter Frint
Tristen Schumacher


Thank you Jim! You are a rare find in the real estate world and I appreciate your expertise and friendship.

Doug Frint


Thanks for all your help selling my lake house. After trying to sell it myself with no luck you step in with your knowledge and professionalism and got it sold. It’s been a pleasure working with you.

Thanks again,
Jaulita Walther



After going through several realtors to sell my land, you were the only one who provided me with the enthusiasm and professional skills to sell it!!! I promise you I'll never call another realtor in the future!!! YOU'RE THE BEST!!!

 Dickie Lloyd



I very much appreciate everything you have done to make everything go so smoothly in my purchase of Blanche Rd.

Sarah Yeska



 You were very warm and personable yet undoubtedly professional. You met all expectations in helping us in a time of our grief in letting go of our family home. You were gentle, knowledgeable, genuine, professional. I just cannot say enough about the experience. Always open in communicating every step of the way guiding and explaining every step of the process expediently too! Jim Russell, you are truly the best real estate agent, EVER!!!


Emily Goetzinger



I want to thank you again for the help and care you gave us during both the purchase of our new home and sale of our previous one. You were there with answers to every question and when I became frustrated with the process, you made the right call every time. You just keep on telling people that experience pays off. You are proof that it does. You will be my answer to anyone looking for a realtor they can trust and trust to get the job done right.

Thanks again,
Randy and Kathy Moore


We've sold several houses thru the years, but we've never had a professional agent like you!!! You would amazing, you go way be on what we have always experienced from past realtors, we love your communication, marketing and negotiating skills, we could not ask for a better realtor than Jim Russell.

Jim and Jackie Andrews

You could not ask for a better realtor than Jim Russell. He is knowledgeable, persistent and goes far beyond what his contract demands. He will negotiate the best price in the shortest time. You will be both impressed and happy because he takes a personal interest with all his clients.

Andy Bohn


Jim, It was a pleasure working with you. We all appreciated your professional advice and help getting us through this mess. Thanks again for taking care of us.

Wade Zinsmeister


Jim is professional and prompt. Had him list some of my families old rental homes. They sold for more than we expected and with out a hitch. Would recommend him and plan to use him in the future. Thanks Jim

Dave Seigle


Jim, I can't "THANK YOU" enough for everything you did for me. You are "one of a kind". You were my Angel!!! You took care of me and held my hand though out the whole process of selling my house. You went way beyond the duties of a realtor. You handled the inspection/repairs process using your contractors. I want to "Thank You" again from the bottom of my heart. You had made a dream come true!!!

Inez Murphy

Jim, We were very pleased with the way things went and of course happy the house sold in just one day. Thanks for everything and we enjoyed working with you.

Carlie and Marilyn Brooks


Jim, Mom and I were so pleased with the quick sell of our home. You were always professional and personable and it was a pleasure doing business with you. I always enjoyed our interactions and would gladly recommend you to any family or friends that wanted to sell or buy a home. Wishing you many more years of successful sales!!

Deborah Ward


Working with Jim was great, very professional, very pleasant personality and we are very satisfied with the process of selling our property.
​David & Vickie Tassel



Just wanted to let you know how much I appreciated all your time and effort in selling the house that I inherited. It was a hard sale since the house needed a lot of work. But from the day I met you I knew you could sell this house for me. You are a wonderful realtor and very professional. You answered all my questions and concerns and kept me informed. This kept me at ease. I would recommend you to everyone I know who needs to sell or buying a home. I was truly blessed with a great realtor and now a wonderful friend. Thanks once again for everything.

Linda Geary ​



It was an absolute pleasure to have Jim as our agent. He showed tremendous passion in his work and was very good at it. He was very honest and helpful throughout the entire process. Jim was always quick to answer any questions we had and made it very simple for us. We feel that he did an amazing job selling our property. So well that it didn't even last a whole week on the market. We could not be more satisfied and would strongly recommend anyone looking to sell their property to give him a call.

Bajro and Havka Hapadzic




Just wanted to let you know i appreciate all you did in selling our property at the lake. You were very professional and helpful especially concerning my wife. I would recommend you to anyone wanting to sell or list property. Thank you for your time and effort.
Danny Mudd



Jim Russell is a professional at his job and a nice gentleman to work with-a pleasure!

Jerry Harlow





I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for selling my daughter's house to settle her estate. It was a very emotional time for me and just talking to you kept me grounded.

Thanks again.
Margaret Miley




This was my first time buying a house and I could not recommend Jim Russell more! He laid everything out for me in a straightforward way and helped me know the type of house that would be the best investment. Jim is not pushy but he did give me great input while looking for a house that helped me make an informed decision. I am extremely pleased with my home that I purchased and the service that I received with Jim Russell as my realtor. His experience in the field makes him a great asset in the purchase process and he helped make the sometimes stressful time of home-buying more comfortable. Working with him was a great choice!
Alisa Vaughan




When we decided to put our house on the market, there was no question about what realtor we were going to contact. Jim Russell is an honest and straightforward businessman. He did not tell us what we wanted to hear but what we needed to hear. His knowledge and experience in the business was very comforting in unfamiliar territory. Jim was readily available when we had questions or he got back in touch with us very shortly. His experience in the business speaks volumes and rate top notch in my book. Selling, buying and moving is one of life’s more stressful events. Jim took care of all the hassle and negotiations which took a lot off our plate. Thanks Jim for helping us find our new house and making it happen.
Jamie and Kim Kneisler




Jim....You did an excellent job getting the best value offer for the property and ensuring the sales process went smoothly. Thank you again and I look forward to the next one!

Josh Latham

Thanks Jim for the quick sell of my home, you made it seem so easy. I knew with all your experience and knowledge you have in Real Estate the selling of the house would be smooth. I tell everyone you ARE the best in the business


Thanks again,
Dani Reynolds





Jim, You stay ahead of the game in every way. You seem to know the business, past and future trends and all the buyer perks of the industry. You don’t cut corners and believe in doing the right thing. You’ve listed two homes for us in the past 10 years and we knew from the beginning we were in good hands. Our first home had not had any offers in over six months when we asked you to list it – it then sold and closed within the next three months. When you listed my dad’s house, it sold and closed within two weeks; all due to you answering phone calls, texts and emails almost immediately. You said “success only comes before work in the dictionary” and you are the living example to prove that statement is true. Thanks for being there for us. You certainly provided an A+ service and more importantly peace of mind.

Thank you so much,
Steve and Pat McClellen




After seeing his ad in the Yellow Pages, my original intent when I contacted Jim Russell was to see if Jim would buy my house “as is.” After meeting with Jim at the house and talking with him about my options, I was so impressed with Jim’s honesty, experience and straight-forward approach, that I decided to hire him as my agent and to list my house on the market. Even though it was late Autumn and Winter was just around the corner, with Jim’s efforts and advice, we had several showings and offers in a short period of time. Within two months we had a signed contract, and closed less than two months later. Throughout the whole process, Jim maintained excellent communication with me and made me comfortable with what otherwise could have been a difficult task. Experience, honesty and hard work do make a positive difference! Thanks Jim.

Walter Hauber, Jr.




Jim Russell was absolutely "heaven sent" to me. He was just what I needed and "held my hand" through both the buying and selling process. I now consider him a friend, and would recommend him to anyone who needed a guiding force in the real estate business.
I truly would have been lost without him. I came to him asking for the nearly impossible. I wanted to live within walking distance of my sister -- on a street where people are settled and don't move much. I had tried to work with two other realtors before him. I didn't get any calls back, no advice, and no real attention. I felt confused and afraid.
Jim took the time to really talk to me. I remember him looking me straight in the eye when we first met and telling me, "This is what you need to think about. These are the decisions you need to make. You get me that information and we'll find you a home."
Guess what? I live right next door to my sister now! I never could have made the deal and had my dream come true if not for his constant availability, quick action, and experience. He isn't pushy, but he's so well informed that it's easy to trust his advice. He has a network of trustworthy vendors he can call on your behalf -- only if you choose -- but the work gets done quickly and appropriately, and at a great price! Every single time I took his advice, I was very glad with the outcome. I have never had better customer service. I am so happy! Thank you, Jim.
Beth Blakely




I along with my Husband would like to give Jim Russell a world of Thank's for all the help He bestowed us in finding the great house we now live in, I have the pleasure of adding Jim not only as our family realtor now, but to also can be honored to call him a friend. The diligence that Jim put into finding the home that we where looking for and everything that we where looking for in our new home was found with a lot of hard work and deep digging on the part of Jim. If and when in the future we find a need or have anyone in our family or friends who need a realtor, Jim Russell will be the person we recommend anyone to. If anyone is looking for someone that shines professional, hard working and treats everyone as if they where family, This is Jim.Thank you Jim so much for all you did as well as being sure that We where secure and comfortable in our decision in our new home.

Very satisfied home owners

Rick and Debbie RIGNEY






Jim was very dedicated in selling our commercial property. It took a while but he never gave up. We highly recommend Jim for buying or selling real estate - commercial or residential.

Ron and Betsy Davis





Jim, Right from the start we both where very impressed with every thing you said about selling the house. We could not have had a better Realtor than you. We have told all about how you handled the sell. God bless.
Sandy and Ralph Pence





Thank you so much for everything!!! You did an amazing job of helping me out. I deeply appreciate it and am pleased with the outcome.
Teresa Bates




When either buying or selling, I wanted a Real Estate agent who was experienced with a proven record of pleasing his clients. Jim Russell was without question that person! He represented me with enthusiasm, efficiency and energy needed to quickly produce results. I would highly recommend Jim Russell to anyone who wants a honest, hard working agent who "gets it done".
Bob Bohn



My experience working with Jim Russell was one I will take with me throughout my career. Jim not only taught me the ins and outs of real estate, but also how to grow as a person. Buying or selling a home is very in depth and personal. You not only have to know the business but you have to have the people skills it takes to earn the trust of your clients. Jim takes pride in both aspects and enjoys passing along his many years of experience to anyone willing to learn. His self discipline with scheduling never failed to amaze me. We all know how hard it is to juggle home life and work and Jim is a perfect example of how to do both. He never hesitated to answer questions or give assistance when needed. He offered his support to me and all of the agents whenever we needed him no matter how busy he was. Jim Russell is a family man, a religious man, an exceptional real estate agent and broker and my mentor. I am honored to have had the chance to work for him and learn from him. His words of wisdom echo in my thoughts everyday even now. “You are either called or driven,” is what he used to tell me. This is so true and I apply these words to everything I do, in my career and my personal life. He is a husband, a father, a grandfather and a called leader. Jim Russell, in my book is the best in the business.
Sommer Vincent



I have been using Jim Russell as my realtor since 1978. He has always given me an honest opinion on the value of houses and lots whether I was buying or selling. His knowledge of Louisville and the surrounding counties has greatly enhanced his value as my realtor. Jim has worked tirelessly to help complete some tough sales. Whether it be multiple open houses, meetings at odd times or bringing me back to the table to talk about upgrades that needed to be done to help the sale. Jim has always got me the best price possible. Jim has always been able to be contacted at all hours of the day giving me the assurance that my realtor was always just a phone call away. When I consider selling or purchasing any property in the Louisville area I would not consider calling anyone else. Jim Russell is a man of character and one cannot put a value on longevity and honesty.
Mark Edwards,
President Edwards Moving & Rigging Inc. and Fireside Properties




Jim Russell was honest, straight forward and very knowledgeable. It was a pleasure to have him represent me in the sale of my home. GREAT SALESMAN!!!

Shirley O'Brien



Jim, I want to "Thank You" for selling of my house and helping me find another. You went way beyond normal of what i expected from you and your services. If anyone wants a referral, you can have them call me and I'll tell them about you and your service. I only have high praise for you and your hard work and your integrity.
Virgie Richardson



When our mother passed away and we were looking to put it in a realtor's hands, we did not think twice but went with Jim Russell due to our past experiences with him. Jim is a "straight shooter" and has the experience/expertise in selling homes. Although it was bittersweet in selling the house, Jim made it such a smooth transition and hassle free.

Keith, Steve and Kevin Shartzer



Jim Russell's diligence and practical advice in the sale of my mothers house was a prayer answered. Living out of Louisville made the sale quite a personal inconvenience. Mr. Russell's professionalism and experience with a very challenging piece of property meant we had to trust him to do what was in our best interest. Not only did he do just that but did so in a timely manner. We are very grateful for his handling of and the closing of the property. He is a man of integrity and the real estate industry is blessed to have him in their ranks.

Dawn Malick and Linda Logue



My mother-in-law had to leave her home unexpectedly due to broken pipes during a weather related long term power outage, she was not able to return due to a medical condition. Jim Russell was recommended by the contractor working on the house. Living 600 miles away made managing the house very difficult. Jim has a vast pool of knowledge from his years of experience, as well as a great network of contacts for every circumstance that arose. When he learned the house was in a flood plane, he learned what needed to be done to apply to FEMA for reclassification. His work to help us was tireless, to include arranging for long distance closing. I would highly recommend Jim Russell.
Jim and Michelle Landers



Mr. Russell helped me with selling my Mother's home. It was the family home for well over 50 years. It's condition was poor to say the least. During this process our sister became terminally ill. Seeing to my sister's needs became paramount. Severely limiting my ability to assist in any sale of the property. I left the matter in Mr. Russell's hands. Mr. Russell understood without saying my needs and took matters into his own hands. Due to this I was able to attend to and grieve for my sister along with fulfilling my Mother's last wishes. He was completely honest with me! Even when I did not like it! He handled every aspect of the sale to my total satisfaction. He is a true gentleman. I hope that should I need a realtor in the future that he will consider helping me again. Thank you again Mr. Russell. span>

Most sincerely,
Connie S. Murphy



Jim, I just want to say "Thank You" for your professional services in selling my sisters' home. The whole process took less than three months from the listing, negotiations, and the closing.




Jim Russell is the man when it comes to selling your home and/or helping you buy another. His hard work, expertise and dedication to his clients makes him one of the best in his field. My wife and I have called on Jim and he has consistently come through. He treats all his clients with respect and compassion. If you want a great experience in dealing with real restate, call Jim. He is the man!
Rich and Pam Shanks


Mr Russell....It was a pleasure doing business with you. The sale of my house was faster than i ever expected. You did a wonderful job of selling my home. I could not be more pleased with your service.

Thanks again,
Faye Snodgrass


My husband and I feel so blessed to have found such a wonderful agent as Jim Russell. Throughout the time it took to sell our previous home and then to find a new home, Mr. Russell was always courteous, kind and very helpful throughout the entire process. With his positive attitude, he made us feel at ease. We will certainly recommend Mr. Russell to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.


James & Lillian Foster



SOLD!! My mother's home was less than 3 months on the market and much of it was spent under contract. I live an hour away, and, without Jim's assistance and guidance, selling her home would have been quite daunting. From the start, Jim not only suggested what remodeling to do prior to marketing, but he also recommended highly qualified individuals to complete the necessary work. Within a short period, we had an offer. Jim's professionalism and experience made the negotiation process a smooth one. Closing was a breeze! I truly felt like I was his only client the whole time. I know he went over and above the call of duty, and, for that, I am grateful. Thank you, Jim. My mother will be forever grateful:)

Tess Lyons




Recently my mom moved into a nursing home and it was left to me, the first born, to sell her house. While I had sold several of my own homes before, my job and my wife's health didn't afford me much free time to devote to selling mom's property. Not to worry, Jim took the initiative and worked tirelessly to sell the house with minimum complications. I was very pleased with the number of showings we had. Jim patiently explained the options for each decision and then provided wise counsel regarding the sale. I especially appreciated him coordinating many of the details between signing the contract and closing. Jim is a seasoned professional with a personal touch who will make selling your home a pleasant experience.

Don Waddell



We live 5 hours from Louisville and needed to sell the house we owned there. Being so far away made it nearly impossible to handle the simple to not so simple needs for the house during the period we had it for sale. Jim handled everything that was needed from getting someone to care for the lawn to someone who could fix the leaking basement walls. Of course, he also found the right buyer for the property, too. Thanks to Jim, we no longer own a house 5 hours away, and we still have our sanity! Thanks, Jim, and God bless you!

​Joe & Rose Mary Scobey



Two words describe Jim Russell: Professionalism and Experience. After my father passed away, Jim had the difficult task of helping me sell his home. Lots of "little things" to fix or do seemed to keep creeping up during the selling period, and Jim was instrumental in overseeing the completion of all necessary work. I could not have accomplished any of this without him and the help of his work crews. Jim took a very sensitive and difficult time for my family and made it so we didn't have to any of the hard work. We thank you for everything, Jim!

Wes Chandler




Jim, Thanks so much for helping us in buying our condo! You were such a big help and always got back with us immediately when we had a question! We don't plan on moving again but if we do, YOU will be the realtor we call! Thanks so much!

Ken Rowe and Kimberly Melton



Jim.....Thanks for everything -- you were terrific to work with and I appreciate all of your efforts on our behalf. We know it was a bit of a challenge and are grateful for your perseverance. Thanks, too, for your responsiveness-- I really appreciate that as I know you are very busy!

John and Audrey Kline



Jim, We cannot express the gratitude we feel about your service and friendship. Thank you again for all your efforts.

The Parrish's



Jim, "Special Thanks" for all the help you provided me in the sale of my previous home and the purchase of my new patio home. You were always available to answer any questions and concerns when i needed the answers. I would highly recommend you to any of my friends and family. I really appreciate you guidance and knowledge in the real estate world. Again, "thanks" for all your help and especially for the great closing!!!

Doris Prouty



We would like to praise Jim Russell for a job well done. He kept us informed on every aspect of the sale of our patio home. He was always there when We needed him or when we had questions about anything. He made the sale of our home go very smooth and we are grateful to him for that. He was a real pleasure to work with.

Thanks again Jim:
Michael & Margie Cowherd




 I was asked to help an elderly friend sell her home. Without hesitation I immediately knew to call Jim Russell. Jim is someone that my family has known for quite a few years though we never personally had any business to do with him. Jim was without a doubt kind, honest, sincere and extremely helpful in what I needed to do to help my friend.. He was prepared and had the information that was needed for me to make an informed decision to move forward. In a few short weeks we had a buyer. Jim guided me through the process from start to finish without any issues or unanswered questions. As I told Jim when we were finished,"Some people are good at what they do only hoping to get better, but Jim is great at what he does".

Thank you,
Conni Cheney



It certainly has been a pleasure doing business with you. In fact, someone asked me yesterday, should i have another house to sell, would i consider you again? My answer was fast and a positive "YES". I explained to them that i was dealing with a person with integrity, honesty and high standards. I was not the easiest client you had to deal with since i always needed answers ,but you handled me with extreme patience and i appreciated that very much.

Thank you,
Marianthe Masterson


Jim Russell went way beyond what I would say is normal for a real estate agent; I purchased a HUD home for the first time and had never had as many complications in purchasing a home before, but Jim always found out what needed to be done. Every time I called him he returned my calls almost instantly or within a very short time. His endless effort to assist me made this transition bearable I believe with any other realtor I would had given up on getting this home for my daughter and grandson. Even after the closing he still takes my calls and gives me good information on solving problems. Thanks Jim you were more than just a realtor - you are a friend now.

Mary Juras


I sincerely appreciated everything Jim did on behalf of my mother's estate. It was sometimes a struggle due to some personal issues that we were having and his graciousness and focus during these times was unparallel !!! I will certainly recommend him to anyone I know who is attempting to buy or sell their home and look forward to working with him again when Felicia and i decide to purchase or sell.

Thank you so much,
Teresa Alsen


I have had the pleasure of working with Jim Russell on many occasions. I have been represented by Jim both as a buyer and a seller on several real estate transactions within and outside Jefferson County. I find that his knowledge, good humor and willingness to get the job done has made him the only real estate professional I choose to deal with. On many occasions when I was seeing the worst in a situation he was always able to make me see the best and on many occasions kept me from making a bad decision. He is thorough, dedicated and a tough negotiator and I am pleased to say that we have not only a professional but after many years a friendship that will last forever. When you choose to use Jim Russell as your realtor, you can rest assured that you are getting the "BEST".

My experience working with Jim Russell was one I will take with me throughout my career. Jim not only taught me the ins and outs of real estate, but also how to grow as a person. Buying or selling a home is very in depth and personal. You not only have to know the business but you have to have the people skills it takes to earn the trust of your clients. Jim takes pride in both aspects and enjoys passing along his many years of experience to anyone willing to learn. His self discipline with scheduling never failed to amaze me. We all know how hard it is to juggle home life and work and Jim is a perfect example of how to do both. He never hesitated to answer questions or give assistance when needed. He offered his support to me and all of the agents whenever we needed him no matter how busy he was. Jim Russell is a family man, a religious man, an exceptional real estate agent and broker and my mentor. I am honored to have had the chance to work for him and learn from him. His words of wisdom echo in my thoughts everyday even now. “You are either called or driven,” is what he used to tell me. This is so true and I apply these words to everything I do, in my career and my personal life. He is a husband, a father, a grandfather and a called leader. Jim Russell, in my book is the best in the business.

I have been using Jim Russell as my realtor since 1978. He has always given me an honest opinion on the value of houses and lots whether I was buying or selling. His knowledge of Louisville and the surrounding counties has greatly enhanced his value as my realtor. Jim has worked tirelessly to help complete some tough sales. Whether it be multiple open houses, meetings at odd times or bringing me back to the table to talk about upgrades that needed to be done to help the sale. Jim has always got me the best price possible. Jim has always been able to be contacted at all hours of the day giving me the assurance that my realtor was always just a phone call away. When I consider selling or purchasing any property in the Louisville area I would not consider calling anyone else. Jim Russell is a man of character and one cannot put a value on longevity and honesty.

When I first began working with Jim Russell as a Mortgage Loan Officer in 2002, I discovered right away that he had a wealth of knowledge in Real Estate. He is very instrumental in discussing the wants and needs of his clients, then walking them through the process to accomplish the task at hand. I feel privledged to work with both Jim and his clients.

On a personal note, impressed with his knowledge and reputation , I hired him to sell my personal residence. He spent time gathering facts relating to my property, showed me research he used price my property accurately, and sold it within 2 weeks. I was very pleased with Jim's professionalism throughout the process. With 35+ years of experience under his belt, he has mastered the art of his profession and continues to be a successful leader in his field.

I have been a member of the Armed Services for 24 years and counting. Over that period I have lived in 10 locations around the country. I rarely need a reminder of how great Americans are, for I work with some of the finest men and women who risk their lives day in and day out. My experience with Jim Russell has renewed my confidence in how great our people are! If you need help buying or selling a home, I give you my personal guarantee you will be 100% satisfied in your dealings with Jim!! There is no realtor who is more honest and trustworthy on this planet. I met Jim Russell when my father was about to turn 87 years old and could no longer take care of himself. I'm not sure how I would have done it without Jim there every step of the way. Jim Russell will work as hard as I work for this country, he is the choice for your next move!!!

“I have known Jim personally and professionally for many years. He has helped our family with several sales and purchases of homes, including the sale of a home for the estate of my aunt that was more than a bit challenging. Jim is honest, loyal, determined, and his word is his bond. I know that his ethical and moral foundation is based on genuine and time tested truths. He always does what is best for his clients, often at his own expense. The word patient would not begin to describe his demeanor and personality. He is only one of the few people that I recommend to friends, family members and business associates. I can pay Jim the highest compliment possible by categorically stating that I trust him with my wife, kids AND grandkids. Jim truly lives by the golden rule.”

“I first met Jim in the Spring of’97 when he showed me a house he had listed. While I did not buy that particular house, I was very impressed with the way he showed the property. He never made any attempt to cover up for deficiencies or make the property more than it was. Jim's integrity and honesty were a breath of fresh air to me and gave me confidence that I could trust him at his word when I looked at buying or selling a home. This prompted me to call Jim first when it came time to sell my own property. I knew that his values would represent my own. He received an offer for me within 3 days, which he advised me not to take because it was below our asking price and he believed we were priced right. Within another 3 days he produced an offer for my asking price from a solid buyer. I have now known Jim for many years. He's a hard worker, honest, and will work to find you the house you desire within your budget or find you a buyer for your own home. He knows the market well from his many years in business in the Louisville metro area.”

I have known Jim Russell for over 10 years and my experience with him as a real estate agent has been fantastic. About 4 years ago, my mother decided to downsize and move to a patio home so her living space would be on one floor and she would no longer have the upkeep of a yard. I called Jim and within a week he had the perfect idea for a patio home community which was closer to family members, in her price range, and of course, beautiful! We visited the model home together and she immediately fell in love with it! Jim also helped us sell her existing home which was a great experience as well.

My overall experience in my dealings with Jim Russell have been that he is a man of high integrity and values the relationships he has built over the years. He definitely “takes care of business” in a professional, prompt and friendly manner. You can certainly deal with him in confidence!

I have used several realtors throughout my life and I must say Jim Russell has been the best ! His experience and advice is priceless given the difficult economic conditions in our country. If you want to sell your property and get the best price my advice would be hire Jim Russell. He is a person you can trust and has the experience to get your property sold promptly.

Jim was a great guy to work with in selling my Mom's house. He did a great market analysis and worked with the other agent in getting the house sold and closed. Really appreciate everything he did. He was very knowledgeable and professional. I have recommended him to friends. Thanks Jim, for all you did.

Informing your client/customer of what to expect from the home inspector and the home inspection process, Jim has no peer who does that better. He is always on time at the outset of the home inspection, explains what it will cover, the information that is pertinent, and the information that is just information.

When Jim takes his time to “set” up the home inspection this way, it alleviates the pressure for the buyer. For the home inspector it puts you on notice, we are ready for you to do your job in the buying process. The home inspection is so very important, especially for the first time buyer, that how the Realtor begins the process is vital. Without that process beginning with everyone knowing how the home inspection will proceed, what it is and what it isn’t is courting an unsuccessful out come. Over the past 15 years of working with Jims clients/customers I have been privileged to watch a professional Realtor do what he has said he would do, when he said he would do it, and leave no stone unturned for all parties in the transaction to be honestly, represented.

We have known Jim Russell approximately 25 years. During this time Jim has assisted us in purchasing and selling several single family houses utilized as rental homes investments. Jim has a great sense of humor, is reliable, trustworthy, a friend and a good Christian man. He's an agent you can depend on to handle either purchasing or selling real estate and is most certainly a credit to his profession. Need a great agent? Give Jim a call ! ! !

We met Jim in 2006 looking at property in Grayson County. Even with an hour and half drive from his personal house in Fern Creek Jim never hesitated to meet us in Grayson County to let us in and view the house. He's the ultimate professional and very courteous. Jim and his family are extremely generous with their time and money. About 6 months after our sale Jim called us out of the blue and offered us tickets to the Southeast Christian Church Easter Pageant. It was a nice offer and it was our first time at the pageant. It's that type of generosity you can expect from Jim.

Jim Russell was introduced to me through my father Bill Edwards in the early eighties. Dad has worked with Jim since Jim first began his business, and has bought and sold dozens of properties for him over the years. When you can trust a realtor to not only use his services for decades but to also recommend him to your son, I think says it all about the type of professional Jim Russell is. And over the years I have also enjoyed his market knowledge and business savvy. It doesn’t matter whether it is a high end property, starter home or investment property, or whether it be a bear market or bull market, Jim simply gets the job done. I have found that his expertise in real estate is incomparable in evaluation, market value, and recommendations for improvements. It is unusual and refreshing to have a realtor that is so well rounded, and able to put together the whole package to “move” your product. There are many choices in the real estate industry, but Jim Russell is simply exceptional in his field. Time is money, and why waste time with anyone other than a proven pro?
