About Me

I have been in the real estate services business in the Colorado Springs real estate markets for many successful years and will be here for many more. This longevity and confidence comes from my real estate services to a great many buyers and sellers who value my expertise, complete discretion, extensive knowledge of the market and their recommendations to others that result in repeat and referral business that keeps me productive and successful.

As a full service Colorado Springs real estate professional, I work with buyers, sellers and investors in real estate transactions spanning all of the price ranges and property types.  While my emphasis is higher end homes, I have experience and can assist buyers and sellers in any price range.

Residential Single Family – My residential single family services connect buyers with sellers every day, and I do it with professionalism and a total dedication to my clients. This property type is the majority of my market transactions, but by far not the only one in which I have expertise.

Condominiums – While condominiums are residential, they’re a very different market focus, and I am an expert in evaluating condos and helping buyers and sellers to cope with the special financing and homeowner concerns for this property type.

Multi–family – Investors are great clients for me. Multi–family properties are a very unique market. I have at my disposal detailed return on investment and valuation calculations investors need to evaluate properties for rental.

Commercial – Whether it’s a shopping mall, a small office building or a restaurant space, I'm your commercial property specialist. Contact me for your commercial property needs in the Colorado Springs real estate markets.

Vacant Land and Custom Homes – Land is a very special property class. It’s relatively easy to show a gourmet cook a wonderful commercial kitchen in a home and see their eyes light up. It’s more of a challenge to help a buyer or seller to realize the potential in a piece of land. I'm the best at it in the Colorado Springs real estate markets. Building a custom home can be an intimidating process if you haven't done it before but it doesn't have to be so daunting if you have the right connections and experience. I have great relationships with custom home builders and can point you in the right direction to find the best custom builders in the area.

The Reason to Buy Instead of Renting

In talking with first-time potential home buyers, I find there are a lot of misconceptions about what home buying involves and what benefits home ownership offers so I thought I'd address them in an easy-to-understand way.  One of the things renters tell me is that buying a house seems like a big committment to them.  My response is alway ...

Testimonials

" Russ Gordon helped us sell and buy and we were very pleased with his professionalism and knowledge throughout the process. This wasn't our first time buying and selling a house but the first time we used Russ and we wished we would have had him on our previous houses. One thing that stood out in Russ was when we had our house for sale and we came home one Sunday night to find we didn't have a key to get in. Russ drove up to Monument from Colorado Springs on a Sunday night to access the key in the door lock box and helped us get in! "

" Russ assisted my wife and I with selling our home and upgrading into a bigger home. The house was under contract in 3 days of going on the market. The experience was absolutely incredible. I had a realtor from our previous purchase (who was also a family friend) but after talking to russ about a house he had for sale I knew he was the realtor we wanted. Russ treats you like family. I recommended Russ to my sister and brother in law, and russ had their house sold in just over a week. I will be recommending russ to anybody that is looking to sell or buy "

Michael Greene

" After having rented for many years, my wife and I decided it was time to purchase our first home. Going into the process we were very nervous, but Russ was able to help ease our nerves as we started down the road looking for our home. Russ was great to work with and helped guide us through each step. From the initial meeting to discuss our needs and desires to the final closing, Russ did an incredible job of helping us purchase our first home. We would highly recommend Russ to anyone looking for a Realtor. "

"We moved to Colorado Springs from Illinois; Russ was referred to us by my new boss. We went out twice with him, in the narrow windows we had for house-hunting on each trip. He got a really good feel for us on our first trip, and we made a bid on a house by the end of our second. I'm continually amazed how well he knows this town and how well he reads people; his approach to negotiating was very pragmatic and win-win, a nice counter to my very stressed-out scorched-earth approach. :) He was gracious throughout the process. We're glad we worked with him and would happily recommend him as a realtor or as a Colorado Springs tour guide."

David A. Zimmerman

"Russ helped us sell our old house for top dollar and was the best when it came to helping us with the purchase of our new home. I would recommend Russ to anyone looking for an agent that is reliable, and has years of experience to help get the most out of your home and make the right choice on your new home.
Thank you Russ!"
