Biography

Moving can be a big, intimidating transition. It’s my job to make the process as easy, painless and stress-free as possible. As a Realtor, I am dedicated to working with my buyers and sellers, throughout Southern New Hampshire and North Central Massachusetts, to help them find exactly what they need to move onto that new stage of their life, whether that be buying a first home, or a better home, or selling a beloved house to move elsewhere.

 Why choose me to represent your interests in buying or selling a home?

  • Over the last two years, average days on the market for my listings is 23 days.
  • The houses I market have sold, on average, for 99.37% of their listed price.

I have been a Sales Agent with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Verani Realty (formerly Prudential Verani) since 2010, garnering ongoing support and training from the largest most successful agency in the state.

 My achievements include:

- Voted Best Real Estate Agent in the Souhegan Region - 2017, 2018, and 2019

- Awarded GRI (Graduate, Realtor Institute) Certificate for completion of advanced 2-year course of study – 2015

 My additional certifications include:     

  • Seller Representative Specialist     
  • Accredited Buyer's Representative     
  • Certified Negotiation Expert     
  • Seniors Real Estate Specialist

Serving relocation buyers is also a specialty of mine. I have helped clients from all regions of the U.S. - and Australia, find, buy and settle into a house that really feels like home.

Before I became a Realtor, I served as a Library Director for several years, gaining a wealth of experience that helps me better serve my clients today. From merchandising and publicity to understanding how local municipalities work, I have extensive applicable experience that makes buying, selling or building a home easier and less problematic for my clients.

Personally, I'm very involved in my community.  I’m serving my first term on the town's Selectboard.  I was on the Board of the Brookline Public Library (2010-19) and on Brookline’s Finance Committee (2017-19).  I also volunteered on the Brookline Economic Development Committee, working to attract more businesses to the town and lower taxes for residents.

I am intrigued by older/antique homes and have been a member of the NH Preservation Alliance for several years. In my spare time I like travelling, gardening, and flying around New England in a Cessna 310, getting a bird's-eye view of the countryside I call home.

Testimonials

We had a great experience working with Steve! He is very detail-oriented and a skilled negotiator. Highly recommend working with him to buy your next home.

- Lillian C. Lauer

The first time we met Steve, we didn't realize he was our realestate agent. Working night shift we have different schedules than most people. Steve was extremely responsive and would email us back at any time of day or night respectfully. He was attentive to our likes and dislikes and was very motivated to help us find the right house. We never felt pressured into a house we didn't feel was a home. Finally we found our home and Steve worked very closely with us and the other agent to ensure a smooth transition. When we decided to sell our house after taking jobs on the other side of the state it was a no brainer to ask Steve for his help. Even through a pandemic Steve was attentive to our needs, working around our schedule for showings and meetings. Steve was willing to show up to showings to ensure our house sold quickly without issue. Within 6 hours, we had 6 requests for showings and within 1 week we had three offers. Steve helped us negotiate to get fair market value. Steve was great with everyone he interacted with and he was given praise by other agents and contractors throughout this process. Hands down if someone has hesitations to sell their house I would highly recommend they contact Steve. His years of experience show and this makes him a great agent.

- Geoffrey Greenlaw

Steve was our agent when we bought the house and we were so pleased with him, naturally we wanted to use him to sell it. Steve was great and we would not only use him again, we would highly recommend his expertise to anyone looking to buy or sell. Thank you Steve!

- Jacob Greenlaw

I was very pleased with Steve's work. The condo sold quickly, and I think this was in part due to Steve's careful price recommendation. He knew what the property should sell for, and he did not waste time negotiating with a low-bidder. In the end, it sold for $8,000 more than the asking price. I am very pleased with the outcome and would recommend Steve to others!

- Ellen Janerico

We used Steve as both a buyer's and seller's agent. His hard work and support made what could have been a very stressful time, seamless. Throughout the process he was professional, knowledgeable, thorough, and very responsive to our many questions. If we have the need to hire a real estate agent in the future, I wouldn't hesitate to hire Steve again, and will gladly give him a high recommendation to others looking for an excellent agent.

- Polly Duprez

We recently closed on a townhouse. Steve's assistance has made the process as seamless as possible. He is very responsive, providing information requested in a very timely manner, and does his job well by providing information and guidance that we didn't know we needed! We have been very happy with Steve during this transaction, and look forward to working with him to sell our home in the very near future!

- Polly Duprez

Great service and a very nice guy.

- Gary Watjus

Steve sold our house in Brookline NH in 2011 in record time. We were very pleased. When we decided to buy a condo in Nashua a few months ago, we immediately contacted Steve. And we were again very pleased. Steve did a terrific job and helped us close on time. We was extremely helpful throughout the process and always responded to questions promptly. We would hire him again in a heartbeat if we were to look at a new property in the area. My husband and I would not hesitate to recommend him to friends and family.

- Christine McLaughlin

Steve did a great job helping us get our perfect home. After looking at the home and telling him we wanted to put in an offer he was right there. We decided on a Sunday night we wanted to put an offer on a home and sent Steve and email. He responded that same evening setting up a time for us to sit and talk and discuss. Whenever a question needed answering no matter the day of the week he would get right back to us and did made the process very easy. We were first time home buyers and really weren?t sure what we needed to do but Steve made the process less stressful. He allowed us to form our own opinions on things and gave us his thoughts on certain subjects and items in a home to help us decide what we wanted to do and how to handle things. It was a fantastic experience!!

- Rachael Megnia

Steve Russo was an excellent real estate agent. He pinpointed what we wanted out of a home almost immediately, he answered all of our questions, and had our best interest at heart. When our first sale went sideways in the worst way, he had back up listings ready for us almost immediately! We would not have been able to find our new home without him! He was always in good spirits and ready to fight and negotiate for us if needed! 10/10 would recommend!

- Juliette Watkins

Steve handled everything as I was out of the county. He made the sale go smoothly and took all (almost) the stress and worry out of the process. Plus we giggled together during closing! What could be better? I absolutely would never buy or sell a property in the area again without him.

- Wendy A. Harvey

My husband and I own a two family home in Brookline, NH. We contracted with Steve Russo and Veranni Realty to help us find a tenant. Steve did an outstanding job with listing and showing the property. He gave us a great selection of prospective tenants to choose from. We are happy to say the property was rented out within weeks of the listing date. Steve managed all of the inquiries, showings, dates and times. Every detail was managed in a professional way and we are very happy with the outcome.

- Dana Ketchen

Steve is a fantastic agent. We could not have found our new home without him. We knew it would be difficult finding the right home within our budget that would meet our needs but Steve was patient, got us into every house we liked and worked hard to negotiate for us. Every call and e-mail was answered immediately! He really helped make the chore of buying a house seem simple. We can't say enough how great of an agent he's been or how grateful we are to have found him.

- Stephanie Walker

Steve represented us as the buyers during our home buying experience. He was an active listener during the process and was able to pick up on things that we liked and didn't like as we viewed houses. He was able to find houses that were a great mixture of things we liked and didn't know we liked or wanted but in the end it all worked out great. When we met with him in the office or on the road at a showing he was extremely professional with all sellers (agents and personal sellers). Responsive doesn't begin to describe Steve, at 3am he would answer emails or text messages with insight and professionalism. During showings he was quick to answer questions with insight and experience, his knowledge of the many involved processes is extensive and deep. He was truly an amazing agent and I would highly recommend him.

- Geoffrey Ranfos

I highly recommend Steve to anyone looking to buy or sell. He is absolutely fantastic and has great knowledge of New Hampshire and everything it has to offer. He is the most dedicated person I have ever met when it comes to his clients. If I ever had a question or needed information, his response was nearly immediate every time, day or night with even more details than I originally asked for. Being that this was my first home purchase, he helped me with recommendations that would best suit me in situations such as the home inspection, breaking down the lenders numbers, the area and even more. If the time comes to buy or sell again, Steve is the person i want representing me. Thank you for all your help and hard work Steve!

- Jake Greenlaw

Steve Russo was amazing! My father passed away leaving us to have to sell his home. Steve helped us handle this quickly and painlessly. It was a difficult time in our lives- the last thing we wanted to worry about was how we were going to sell the house. Steve came trough and went above and beyond at every turn. He helped in all aspects of the sale. I am convinced we could not have done it as smoothly with anyone else. We are would highly recommend Steve to anyone!

- A. Sargent-Gravener

We could not have asked for a better hard working agent than Steve Russo!! We feel he went above and beyond what was expected. Any time we had any issues with financing or offers on a home, he was right there to try and resolve them. When ever we contacted him via e mail, message or phone call, he would respond usually within a couple hours. I would strongly recommend him to any one looking for a house.

- Steven Beauregard

Steve Russo did a great job assisting me with my new home purchase. My home was new construction and I had some issues along the way but Steve dealt with all my concerns quickly and efficiently. He was a pleasure to work with. I would definitely use Steve Russo again for any real estate matters.

- Jennifer MacKenzie

Steve Russo did an outstanding job in assisting me to sell our house. It turned out to be more complicated than originally plan and Steve was on top of every issue. His advice and support was much appreciated. Steve frequently sent me updates and was always available to communicate with. Our home was not very expensive yet Steve supported us with a significant volume of potential buyers that generated several offers. I highly recommend Steve and will to my family and friends.

- Don B.

Steve was very thorough in his marketing preparation of my home so that it could be listed at the right price. Steve worked very hard for me and was always extremely responsive. He offered great advice as we negotiated our way through not only the sale of my home but also the purchase of my current home. Both transactions went very smoothly. I would recommend him. Thank you Steve.

- Rich C.

Steve is very knowledgeable in listing our home for sale on many websites. He provided great guidance on preparing our home for sale. He is very courteous and encouraging and able to answer any question about selling a home. He provided many open house showings. He did a thorough financial analysis of prospective buyers to pre-qualify them before we had to sign the contract. We highly recommend Steve to anyone selling their home.

- Don & Kim P.

Steve was great at helping us stage a house for rent and at helping us through the process. Steve was very honest and put in a lot of work into making our first rental a success. I would highly recommend him for your real estate needs.

Wed been trying to sell the house on an off for more than 5 years. Steve did a great job helping us market it, and then keeping the sale process on track with a long and complicated closing process. His knowledge of local contractors was a big help in dealing with a number of issues. We strongly recommend him.

- David P.

Steve Russo, from our very first contact, distinguished himself as a serious and aggressive professional. Working at first from just a phone interview Steve provided several homes and organized an afternoon of touring homes, for a Sunday to meet our schedule!! One of the homes is the very home I am sitting in writing this! Steve is personable, energetic and clearly had our needs first and foremost. Steve would be the person I would recommend to anybody in the Nashua area seeking the highest quality, friendliest, most professional representation in the real estate market! Thank You for making Steve Russo available to us!

- Carol Anne B.

Michelle, Vanessa, Gwynneth and Joe Jr. and I are settled into the new house and loving it! We would like to thank you for the professionalism and exceptional service you provided us with the purchase of our home. Michelle and I knew that we would use your services prior to looking for our house based on your past performance with us during our rental contract you stood out in terms of your experience and knowledge of the Brookline. We are excited to start our new chapter and are extremely happy with the home we purchased. We especially appreciate the professionalism and hard work you did for us: negotiating the contract. You always maintained the perfect balance of professionalism, good humor, patience, understanding and diplomacy. You have been a true delight to work with on a personal level as well, reassuring us and comforting us through the stressful task of closing on a house. Based on our experiences with selling and purchasing homes before this one, you have, by far, been the best real estate agent that we have worked with and we would highly recommend you to anyone looking for a real estate agent. Once again, thanks for a job well done!

- Joseph P. thomas

After 30 years in my home i decided to down-size and needed some guidance to get me through the sale process -- Steve was recommended to me by a neighbor and i am pleased that i followed up on that lead. Steve led me through the steps of preparing, listing, showing and ultimately selling my home. He provided valuable insights throughout the process and was patient, yet responsive, to my many questions. Communication via text, phone, email and ShowingTime app was timely and efficient. Most of all, Steve was honest and i trusted him. I highly recommend Steve for your future real estate needs.

- Norman Paul

My girlfriend and I just closed on our first home. We couldn't be happier with how Steve handled every part of our search. I found Steve through a mutual friend's recommendation, and met with him a few months before really beginning our search. Steve understood that and let us casually window shop without trying to force us into anything. This continued when we began actually visiting homes. Steve never tried to sway us one way or another - just providing us with the facts and letting us make the decisions ourselves. It made the process very stress free. As first time home buyers, we didn't know the ins and outs of the process, but Steve guided us every step of the way. In many cases, he went well above and beyond what I would have expected anyone to do. He spent countless hours dealing with the town to sort out an issue with the property we ended up purchasing, due to faulty town records. I did almost all of my communication through email, and every single one was promptly answered, with well researched and clear answers to every single question I had. I would not hesitate to recommend Steve to anyone.

I relocated our family from Australia and was scheduled to be booked into tiny temporary accommodation for 3 months. I wanted to find a permanent place for my family instead. We were introduced to Steve. Steve represented me as a renters agent. I had a few places on my list within a 1 hour radius of his office. Nothing was any trouble for him. He gave a fabulous write up for every house he inspected for us and this ended up with him securing us a fantastic home on a huge acreage. Literally the house of our dreams. He looked after all of the issues of working with a slightly difficult renting agent and made the experience a total pleasure for my family. All of this whilst we were travelling from Australia with a family of five. When we arrived in the USA we were able to move right in. A huge thanks to Steve. I highly recommend him to anyone that wants peace of mind and a zero stress experience.

My husband and I were very happy with the quality of service that Steve Russo provided and would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. Steve is both knowledgeable and professional. He is also very flexible with our difficult schedules and was always punctual at our meetings. It can be very stressful trying to find and purchase the right home and having a great realtor on your side can make or break it. Steve also gave us great recommendations for septic and home inspectors that did a very good job. I hope I never have to buy another home, but I will recommend Steve Russo to any friends or family looking for a realtor they can trust

Top Notch. Two thumbs way up. Steve looked out for my family's best interest. He went above and beyond helping my pregnant wife and I find our first home.
