John Bevan and Russell Hill of Poolside Realty were a great team to work with when purchasing our condo in Rancho Mirage, CA. Conducting real estate transactions during the COVID pandemic came with special challenges, which this team helped us navigate adeptly. Timing was everything with this transaction and John and Russell were there at every important milestone, encouraging the sellers and the escrow company to act when things needed to be done and making sure we understood the myriad of documents we were signing. We appreciated their industry knowledge, excellent and prompt communication skills, intelligence and empathy! We feel as if we made some new friends, too! No question that we would work with this couple, again.

Russell and John of Poolside are amazing, truly! The experience my husband and I had with their expertise and willingness to go above and beyond in both showing properties and being a friendly and strong advocate on behalf of their clients, was fantastic. All the layered details of purchasing a home were handled with a high level of professionalism and ease.

Working with Russell to find my new home in Palm Springs was easy and thankfully uneventful - even during the height of the COVID pandemic when so many things could have been challenging. He's very well informed on real estate trends and opportunities and helped me navigate decisions with great care. Since I was moving from out of state, Russell and John were so helpful "on the ground" pre- and post-closing, which I appreciate so much. Thank you, thank you, thank you both!

Russell helped us through the twists and turns of buying two homes and selling one with lots of patience and great counsel! He's knows his stuff and gently steered us in the right direction when we were considering this house or that one, this neighborhood over that one, etc., etc, etc. So many decisions to be made in the process and he made it less stressful for sure! Never failed to follow up on something he said he would do/send. And he's just a really nice guy to boot -- always cheerful, smiling and happy to see you and answer questions he's answered a million times before.

We were selling our home in the Bay Area and were looking to relocate to the Coachella Valley and our agent recommended Russell as the two had previously been coworkers. Wow, fortune smiled upon us with that recommendation ! Russell went above and beyond guiding and helping us find just the right home. Russell is top notch when it comes to keeping his clients in the communication loop. My partner and I feel very lucky to have found Russell and we would strongly urge anyone looking for a smooth, seamless transaction to hire Russell Hill to represent you.

It seems in Palm Springs area there are hundreds, if not thousands of real estate agents, gay, straight or otherwise. Perhaps the most important decision when buying or selling property is whom you choose to represent you. Several years ago we were referred to Russell and he did a superlative job researching the market to show us only homes that met our criteria. I'm afraid we worked the poor man to death, but it all turned out perfectly. Just recently, we used Russell two sell our home as we were relocating again. He and architect husband John, helped stage and prepare our home for showing with the right amount of style and flair. Because we weren't living in the home during the sales process Russell took on the additional responsibility of identifying items needing repair and then coordinating said maintenance. Most agents I've dealt with are not this accommodating. He even regularly fed the fish in our Koi pond though it was a distance away for him. If you desire exceptional professional expertise and delightful human interaction, then Russell and John are probably the best Real Estate team in the Coachella Valley. I highly recommend them.

We were so pleased when we decided to use Russell to help us sell our home in Rancho Mirage. He was always professional and followed up on every issue in a timely manner. He and husband John have an impeccable eye for style and decor, staging our home in a refreshing yet affordable manner. They make a great team, with Russells years of experience in Real Estate, here and in the Bay Area, and John's architectural aesthetic. They have a keen sense of modernism and classical looks, so they can find just the right home for anyone's preference. We would highly recommend them to any prospective clients.
