"Short sales: What to expect" (6/7/2009)
"No. 1 is decline in value," said Kirk Russell, an agent with John L. Scott Real Estate's Seattle Center office.
Russell is quick to point out that short sales, which often end up in foreclosure, occur at all income levels.
"I've worked with doctors who are in foreclosure because everyone across the board was stretching their income," he said. "I represent quite a few real-estate agents who are in foreclosure or short sales themselves."

I am extremely impressed with Kirk. Not only is he a great realtor, he is kind and compassionate. I shall be forevermore grateful to Kirk. There were many people who viewed my condo. Kirk went through all the offers, choosing the best ones. A lovely young couple bought the condo. Kirk had worked into the negotiations a 30 day escrow and an extra 30 days to give me time to downsize, wothout paying rent for the extra time. I moved out 2 weeks after escrow closed.

I have moved MANY times and dealt with MANY real estate companies - until now I don’t know why I even bothered with other realties. YOU ARE THE BEST and Kirk Russell (on a scale of 1 -10)... He is off the charts in every good way.
— Michael & Georgia Woody
I was totally amazed at how he handled everything. The obstacles he had with the banks being "overloaded", dealing with me and my anxieties, going out of his way to please my husband and me and GOING OUT OF HIS WAY to please the buyers was extremely impressive.
Doing business with Kirk was something I hated to see come to an end, as he is such a pleasure to be around.
I feel my words are inadequate in describing what a fine person he is! You are fortunate to have him as a Realtor and anyone who does business with him is literally BLESSED!
