What People Are Saying About Russo Real Estate


"Thank you so much Annekee Brahver-Keely for all your help over the last two years in renting and now selling our condo... We are so grateful for all that you have done for us. It made all the difference to have your experience at hand when we set out to find a renter and then to sell in this crazy market... Thank you for everything!"

"When you are looking for a Realtor, the goal is to find one that cares for the client, who has good feedback, listens, and follows through. Regardless of it being with a buyer or seller, your desire should be the same when it comes to buying or selling a home. The Realtor should also have a professional standing among his peers in the Realtor community. That can only be earned through time, hard work, and volunteerism.
Steven L. Finkelstein, in helping me sell my listing in Teaneck showed that same dedication to working cooperatively between all parties. He demonstrated a willingness to think out of the box, offer solutions and ideas, and worked hard to close and get his clients into their new purchase.
Is this not what you want when shopping for, or selling a home?
I recommend Steven L Finkelstein for his professionalism, dedication to the Realtor Code, and his ability to assist his clients to obtain the home of their dream."

"Kathy Wicklund helped us to buy our home last year. We were inexperienced first time home buyers, and we were so fortunate to have her as our agent. She was a genuinely honest and competent realtor and became our friend. She had organized each showing as an educational session to give us a thorough understanding of the various styles of houses. And of course, through that process, we were finally able to find our home, and we are enjoying it so far. She is very diligent and responsive and has excellent negotiation skills as well. She truly knows how to make a deal. First of all, She is such a great human being, and I think that was the most important fact to choose the trustworthy agent to help us the biggest spending. I highly recommend Kathy. She will always smile and be your side until you found your dream home."
Ryan Cho

" We worked with Shirley Sosland to purchase a home in New Milford. She came recommended to us and for good reason. This was not our first home purchase, so we know how other realtors can be. She was the best realtor we ever worked with! We recommend her to everyone looking in Bergen County for a home or apartment. She stays within your budget and knows which home issues are truly big or small. If you want a person who cares about your happiness more than their pocket, you should hire Shirley! "

"Kathy Wicklund was involved, energetic and competent from beginning to end. Our home sold for more than anything else in our town has ever sold. She was attentive to our needs, cared deeply about our process and was always the epitome of honesty and integrity. I can't recommend anyone higher. 6 stars {the max} for this one!!" Margaret Szymanski


See what Carolyn K., of Teaneck says of Steven L. Finkelstein....

"Sometimes he's quiet as a mouse, but he will always sell your house!
His smile is catching and his face will take you to a happy place!
He makes you feel like you're the one, who likes to laugh & have some fun!
But, most of all, you'll have a friend, who'll stick with you 'til the end!
He'll say to you, 'please buy this house,' while wearing his amazing blouse.
So, after all, you'll have a deal-Your happiness will seem unreal.
You're tucked away,...A new address, and, late at night, you'll say 'God Bless.' "

Thank you."

"I just purchased an amazing two family investment property with Kathy Wicklund as my realtor! She was amazing and made my first home buying experience so easy by being well informed, responsive and easy to communicate with. Kathy knows everything there is to know about real estate and knows just about everyone in Bergen county which makes the home buying experience much easier. Even after the sale, she continued to educate us about the process of taking over previous owners leases and took the time to make sure everyone was on the same page. She has taught me so much through this process and I know none of this would be possible if I had chosen another realtor without the same passion and experience as Kathy. I would highly recommend Kathy to anyone looking to buy or sell in New Jersey and I plan on hiring her and her company for my future investment endeavors."
Jackie Morales


"Our family felt so comfortable working with Kathleen Wicklund...she was very knowledgable regarding all aspects of the selling process and was super responsive...we felt she was our partner throughout ...we strongly recommend Kathleen's expertise...she also made this process fun! She is a gem!" Mary Hoffmann

"Kathleen Wicklund was amazing. It was truly a blessing to have her in our corner and working with us throughout the entire home buying process. Kathleen’s service, attention to detail, availability, knowledge of the business, follow up process, and commitment to her clients was top notch. Enough can’t be said about how much smoother and simpler she made this process for our family. Far too often when buying a selling a home, the process can be overwhelming for many people, especially if it’s your first time. Kathleen took control of every task and made us feel comfortable every step of the way. She gave us the confidence we needed to get things done, and we trusted her and followed her lead. I would recommend Kathleen to everyone I know." Ray Paltooram


"A short while ago I spoke with Steve Finkelstein [Russo Real Estate Broker-Associate] about selling my co-op next door [to the Russo Real Estate Office].... Little did I know what I was getting myself into, one always expects the worst of people or at least have a fear of dealing with some one you may never see in person that things will somehow come out with more questions than answers. I would truly appreciate if you would publicly recognize for me Steven and his exemplary service and for going far beyond what a real estate agent is required to do. Living in Israel, 80 years old, unable to travel, and wanting to sell a property is daunting to say the least. Steven did more than sell my property. He cleaned out a storage locker, arranged for fire inspections and paid out of his own pocket till I sent him a check for all the fees. When it came time to sign documents and the lawyers did not have docusign he stepped in and took care of the situation and had it done in no time. He also arranged for a dishwasher to be disconnected and disposed of far beyond what any other realtor would do. Steven kept me informed on almost a daily basis and dealt with my tenant... He earned and deserves every penny he made as his commission and is a valuable asset to Russo Real Estate. Please convey me and my families earnest thanks for a job well done without ever meeting face to face I feel I was treated as a king. One last note. When I lived in the building you graciously allowed my wife to park her car in the back of you lot during emergency road closing so her car would not be towed away, Thank you for that also." Rob Lauderdale



"Russo Real Estate is a well run local business. The agents there actually help you find what you're looking for and really try to help unlike just about any realty I've been to over the years. It's no wonder they're such a big presence in Teaneck and the broader Bergen County." Timothy R.

"Rhoda and Bob and all of the support staff at Russo Real Estate were a huge help selling my aunt's home in Teaneck. This was an estate sale so we were dealing with everything long distance and needed referrals for contractors for pre-listing repairs and a few items that arose as a result of the home inspection. Everyone we were referred to completed the necessary work as requested, on time, for a reasonable fee. Rhoda personally checked in on things regularly and communicated directly so that we were always well informed.

Rhoda and Bob have a super understanding of the market and helped us navigate through multiple offers ultimately settling with a well prepared and qualified buyer.  Rhoda answered every question promptly and was a helpful resource throughout - and was an overall pleasure to deal with." Beth B.


"I want to personally thank Russo Real Estate for the tremendous job you and your staff did in selling my mother's estate house in Teaneck. No other brokers would have been as understanding, professional and knowledgeable then your staff at Russo Real Estate.

I would recommend you to any buyers looking to sell in the Bergen County area."
