Amber Russell started in real estate as an investor, allowing her to see both the potential and economic impact of buying or selling a home. She has spent her real estate career with Sotheby’s International Realty, Inc. where she is consistently a top-producer. She has also been an educator for 23 years at the high school and college levels, which has kept her grounded and taught her the importance of truly listening. Amber is a certified conflict mediator, holds her real estate broker’s license, is a published author, and is the only Realtor on the Monterey Peninsula to hold the National Association of Realtors Green Designation. The creative video on Amber’s website caught the attention of producers from HGTV who featured her on the hit TV show "Tiny House Hunters."
Amber’s background as a journalism teacher inspires a creative approach to marketing which makes her real estate listings stand out with Hollywood-quality videos, local television commercials, property story books, and personalized showings. Her dedication to buyers in a competitive market is unparalleled. “Amber just gets it – she knows what you are going through and she’s always one step ahead. Honestly, she’s a real estate rock star,” Peg Born, client.
Amber’s father served his career in the Marine Corps and her husband recently retired after 20 years of service in the Navy, creating in Amber a deep appreciation of military families and the surrounding communities that support them. When her husband was sent overseas for a year, Amber attributes her friends, clients, and neighbors for helping her make it through and is forever grateful for the warm homecoming her husband received in the community.
Amber and her husband chose the Monterey Peninsula to buy their forever home and raise their four children. The eldest has successfully launched, the next will be a freshman at CSUMB, the next is a high school senior, and the youngest is in 8th grade. Their lives are further enriched by their three four-legged kids - two French Bulldogs and a Boston Terrier. Be sure to look for the spotted Frenchie, Roman, out and about with Amber. He’s a fan favorite and even has followers on YouTube from his starring role that helped to sell a very special home last year.
