Meet The Russo Team Buyer Specialist: Darlene Miller and Sam Estrada

Today, I want to highlight two of the anchors on my team – my buyer specialists. I know I often reference “my team of professionals” in my blogs, however, I think it is important for you to understand why they are on my team and what makes them the top-producing agents they both are.  

Darlene has been working with us as a buyer specialist since 1998 and is one of the original founders of RE/MAX Professionals. She has sold hundreds of homes over the years and our current and past clients recognize her as a staple in the Russo real estate family.

Sam Estrada joined us just over a year ago and brings to the team a diverse background, with an attention to detail and a refreshing passion for the industry.

I spent a little time with each of them this week to ask a few candidate questions which I would like to share with you.

Darlene, you have been in this industry for a long time. What is the best part of your job as a REALTOR?

Darlene Miller: I specialize in working with first time or move up buyers and investors. The best part of my job is helping clients invest in their future.

So Sam, tell me why did you choose to become a REALTOR?

Sam Estrada: I wanted to use my love of relationship sales in a business that would allow me to make a difference and at the same time help people live a better life. Real Estate seemed to be a perfect opportunity to accomplish both of these goals.

We all know there is a lot of competition out there.  Darlene and Sam, can you tell me what you do for your clients that sets you apart from the others?

Darlene Miller: I have been working with Valley homebuyers for over 13 years. My commitment to serving my clients is always a number one priority with honesty, integrity and knowledge.

Sam Estrada: In a word: passion. Passion for the business and passion for helping people get their part of the American dream of home ownership.

It seems like everywhere I turn these days I see, hear or read something about the real estate market. Not all of it is positive but yet I know plenty of people buying or selling. Sam, when you meet a new client, what do you tell them. What do you think is the best reason for buying a home today?

Sam Estrada: Simply put, there has not been a better time to purchase a home in many, many years. Inventories on good homes are still relatively high and rates and prices have not been this low in decades. Buyers and investors are able to take advantage of rock bottom pricing today that certainly will not last forever.

Darlene, what is your best advice for people thinking about buying a home?

Darlene Miller: Don't wait! Prices and interest rates are at a historic low, now is the time to buy!
