My fiance and I are so happy that we found Amber! Everything about our experience with her was perfect, down to the tiniest detail. She not only guided us through the buying process but energized us with thoughtful suggestions that made the process more enjoyable and personal. Everything was so smooth - we had buyer acceptance on our first offer and even got to close early! To top it all off, Amber volunteered her husband to install a dog door in our new home...now that's dedication!
We can't say enough great things about Amber. It was a pleasure and privilege to have her help with our home search and we will be recommending Amber to all of our friends and family in the Monterey Bay.Johnny and Jillian07/11/2017
Amber was awesome to work with and a true professional from start to finish. She made our process easy. She held my hand through the entire process and went above and beyond for us. I would highly recommend Amber Russell!05/11/2017
We were very lucky to find Amber as she was able to obtain multiple offers on our home within days of listing and in the end getting us full asking price. She saw something in our home that we didn't even see, nor did the other 4 realtors that I interviewed prior to selecting Amber. She went the extra mile at every turn and far exceeded our expectations. We are ecstatic with the results and would recommend Amber to anyone.05/11/2017
Amber brought great energy and creativity to the sale of our unique property. Her ability to align her suggestions with our expectations, while still promoting our property in its best light was amazing. She is able to think outside of the box, while still producing practical, win-win solutions for all parties.04/04/2017
Amber Russell, Realtor/Broker. That's her official title. HOWEVER, I choose to refer to her as the "house whisperer"! Regardless of who she represents, she's got it handled! With less than a $5,000 investment on the estates part, Amber and her crew had transformed "805" into something magical. Obviously! Because within 72 hours, we had multiple offers, all well over the asking price. Yup, you can color me happy. She walked me through every phase and all the steps of the process, which proves she knows alot about the entire business. Escrow closed on 3/21/2017 and both buyer and seller are thrilled. If you want someone who knows the business, call Amber Russell!03/28/2017
We really enjoyed working with Amber. She helped us navigate a difficult market and find a wonderful home. The home needed several repairs which required additional negotiation.02/02/2017
"Our company has done more than a dozen real estate deals on the Peninsula over the last 25 years. Amber Russell and her expertise at Over the Moon Realty, Inc. produced the most impressive results we have experienced in any of our transactions. Over the Moon is a '10'!"12/15/2016
I feel so lucky to have found Amber, and could not ask for a better realtor! My house sold very quickly, thanks largely to her expertise. She was also instrumental in helping me find my new home. Amber goes the extra mile, communicating throughout the process, and putting in special touches when it comes to staging the home. As a first time seller, I really appreciated how she walked me through the process. When I had some difficult section one repairs, Amber helped me find a qualified contractor who charged a fair price. I give her the highest possible recommendation. Amber is awesome!08/22/2016
Amber was very patient and professional in helping us find the perfect home for our needs. To say she worked very hard for us during the entire process is an understatement. What could have been arduous paperwork, Amber made it as easy for us as possible and was always available to answer any questions that we had. Amber did things for us that went above and beyond her normal realtor duties and we appreciate her very much.07/31/2016
Amber is a professional in every way. She takes her time to explain things, gives you very good advice, communicates with you immediately, has vast knowledge of Pacific Grove and the Monterey Bay neighborhoods, and gets things done fast. Amber sold our home in Pacific Grove in less than one day at full price. The council she gave us was outstanding. We have learned to listen to her because she is the expert when it comes to buying and selling real estate. I don't normally do online reviews unless a company or a person is a standout and I can tell you without a doubt that Amber Russell is a standout in real estate. Ben Aguirre07/30/2016
Amber was terrific from start to finish. We worked with Amber for 9 months to find the right home; she was endlessly patient as we learned about the area and the various neighborhoods, and learned about (and adjusted to) prices in the Monterey area. Once we found the house we wanted, Amber provided great advice to helped our offer stand out, and give them the best offer overall. She is responsive, professional, and really, really effective. I highly recommend her for every step of the buying and learning process.07/11/2016
Amber Russell is hands down the best realtor we've had the pleasure to work with on the recent purchasing of our home in Monterey. In 35 years, we've purchased and sold 8 homes. Amber is an exceptional realtor as were all the professional people she recommended to us; our mortgage consultant, loan officer to skilled artisans. Amber is exceptional in all aspects of real estate including communicating and scheduling every detail alleviating any anxiety during the process. We thank Amber from the bottom of our hearts. Amber Russell is 'the' Monterey Peninsula real estate ROCK STAR. Sincerely, Peggy & Rick B.05/23/2016
Needing to sell an aging parent's home from afar proposed many challenges, but Amber was on top of every detail, including arranging a painter and house cleaner. She also helped us stage the home, which brought in multiples offers the first day on the market. If she lived near me she would be my realtor for life!02/12/2016
When it came time to sell my senior father's home in Pacific Grove, I searched local realtors online and came across a video that Amber had created for another seller. Amber's video was not only very creative and an excellent selling tool, it also gave me an insight to the very professional, yet warm and caring person Amber is. After a phone conversation, I knew she was right for my project, and my intuition was spot-on.
Selling your parents' home can be both emotional and frustrating at the same time. Amber provided such expert guidance, but also understood what I was going through selling a home that I didn't know as well as my own. She was patient with my being out of town, and with the sensitive nature of handling the sale for my father.
Additionally, Amber did an amazing job of getting the home picture perfect for the sale, including taking on fix-it projects ~ so generous. She also supplied the right local resources that made the entire process painless.
With a successful open house, multiple offers, and a short close- we couldn't have asked for more. I cannot say enough great things about Amber Russell and would strongly recommend her~ she is a gem.02/10/2016
Amber guided us through finding and purchasing our new home in Pacific Grove with enthusiasm and professionalism.
From the onset, nearly a year ago, she exceeded our expectations to represent our interests. She is knowledgeable about the community, has a friendly and positive attitude and provides an excellent level of service.
Amber continues to provide support and helpful community information well after close of escrow. She would be a valuable asset to any prospective home buyer or seller and has our highest recommendation.01/31/2016
