About Russell

Russell Parker enjoys helping newcomers and first time buyers to New York City. He’s simply returning the great favor that was shown him when he first arrived. Russell moved to the Upper West Side back in 1979 to finish his BFA at City College. At the time, he assisted tenants find housing in building through the city takeovers on abandoned buildings. So began his interest in NYC real estate.

Now affectionately called HDFC, Russell served on the board of his co-op for over 10 years, and has lived on Duke Ellington Blvd. for several decades. He enjoyed a long career working for the city of New York as a finish mason and bricklayer in all five boroughs, so knows the neighborhoods well. Russell goes the extra mile to make sure each buyer and seller has their unique real estate needs satisfied. Whether you are seeking to purchase, sell or lease residential property, he makes himself available seven days a week for showings, to answer questions, and to cater to his clients' important real estate business.

“I particularly like working with first-time buyers because they immediately understand that the suggestions I make and options I provide are exactly the kind of information they need to make qualified decisions. Today's internet-savvy clients are quite capable of gathering facts on their own, but I can fill in the gaps by providing a better understanding of the market and the purchase process. Regardless of whether someone is buying or selling, I listen to their details, add my facts, and go on from there. I believe that if you can tune into the person you're dealing with, you will hear the whole story--what they're verbalizing and what they're not.”

Russell injects warmth and humor into each step of the often-daunting real estate process. If selling your home, he will gladly visit with you, prepare a complimentary comparative market analysis, and develop an effective marketing plan specifically tailored for your property – one designed for maximum payoff with minimum pain. If you're searching for your ideal home, Russell will be relentless in seeking out and showing you the best the market has to offer.
