If you are looking to buy or sell a home in Novi MI you want the best real estate agent you can get.  What makes a good real estate agent?   You do not want a newbie to handle your transaction.  Do you want them to learn and make the mistakes so many new agents make.  One of the important items in a real estate transaction is writing addendums to a purchase agreement. 

I have had two many people call me after the fact, after their agent messed up.  These people that have called me have already made a mistake by hiring the wrong realtor and now they are trying to figure a way out of the mess they are in.  I have had home buyers call me to tell me that they are going to lose their earnest money if they do not buy a money pit or a home that has issues.  I recently received a call from a buyer.  The home was structually unsound but the way the contract and the addendum was written the buyer now had to buy the house.  The inspection clause was poorly written by the agent.

Another one I remember was about a well.  The agent had written an addendum but failed to put in what the well pressure had to be.  The sellers said it was fixed and both parties were arguing about it.  The buyers ended up losing $3000 in earnest money.  All because their agent did not write a good inspection addendum.

It's key to have a good agent in your corner especially when there are issues. Here are some of the many characteristics of a good real estate agent in Novi

  1. A good negotiator - an agent that knows how to negotiate well will save you thousands of dollars and get you the best deal possible.  
  2. A full time agent - if you hire an agent that is part time they are not focused on your deal.  They have other irons in the fire.  I have seen airline stewardesses be agents but not be around when they were needed because they were on a flight.  I have seen part time agents that were mothers that were too busy because their children were home from school.  Part time agents have different priorities that may not be your priorities.
  3. An experienced agent knows how to handle big and little issues that arise in the sale or purchase of your home.  Some of it becomes second nature.  They can relieve your stress because they can sometime get you an answer immediately.  They know how to solve the problem because they probably have dealt with it before.  A newer agent cannot.
  4. Is more than a one man shop.....many times one man or one woman real estate shops do not respond to showing requests, or offers.  They have no boss over them and sometimes they do not care if they are bad real estate agent.

These are just some of the traits the best Novi real estate agents will have.  I am applying to be your realtor because I have proved over the years that I am a very good real estate agent.  I have helped so many clients with their real estate moves and they have saved money with me.  They have written the testimonials below.

    Sold a home in 2015.

    Russ rocks! From our first conversation I had good feelings about working with Russ. He was quick to tell me everything that I needed to know about selling my house, and he understood that I was looking for somebody to take care of everything possible since I had a very busy schedule. In the end I got more than asking price and I only had to move out and sign paperwork! I highly recommend Russ, he will get the job done.Show less

    Bought a Single Family home in 2009 in Westland, MI.

    We were connected with Russ through a program with our mortgage company. We really lucked out being first time home buyers. Russ was very knowledgeable and patient with my wife and I. We had a LOT of questions and he was happy to answer all of them very quickly either over the phone or in a prompt email. We are very grateful for all the help Russ gave us in finding our first home and we couldn't be happier. We have recommended Russ to 3 different family members and friends. They have all had similar experiences and I know they will use Russ again in the future. -Chris & Sara

    Bought a Single Family home in 2015 in Waterford, MI.

    If you are wondering if you have found the best realtor in all of Michigan, stop here and look no further. Russ Ravery is 100%, hands-down the best realtor. He guided us through the home purchasing process even so much as informing us of information our mortgage banker should have communicated. He was literally a phone call away any time we had a question, answering our calls 98% of the time by the second ring! If he was unable to answer, he would return our call in a matter of minutes. Russ is fierce, loyal, and understanding - it is evident he takes great pride in every aspect of his work. Russ WILL make the process of buying or selling a home a smooth and rewarding one. "Trust in Russ" Thrilled Homeowners, Mike and Heather

    Bought a Single Family home in 2015 in Taylor, MI.

    We were recommended Russ' services after having a previously failed relationship with a different agent. I was skeptical because Russ sells much higher end homes than the range I was looking for. Boy was I I wrong!! Russ was insanely attentive, picked up on what we wanted/required in homes and steered us in the right direction. Never once did he try to make up our minds for us, insanely honest and always available to help calm my jitters. He was an amazing guide on the journey of buying our first home. I would recommend his services to anyone and everyone!

    Bought and sold a Single Family home in 2014 in Highland, MI. 

    Found the perfect home in Highland but needed to sell our house in Livonia to get it.. Russ came through with both the purchasing of my new house and the selling of my Livonia house!!! His knowledge of both areas was a tremendous advantage in our transactions!! Russ isn't a part timer and it shows in the total effort he put into the process!!! It was nice to have someone go the extra mile!!! Time to enjoy lake living now!!!
