Get to know Russ Gordon
Hi there. I'm a full time professional Realtor in Colorado Springs, Colorado, home of the U.S. Air Force Academy, the U.S. Olympic Training Center and many other great organizations all sitting in the shadow of Pike's Peak, the mountain that inspired the song "America the Beautiful". I've lived here in the "Springs" for 25 years, having relocated from the sunny shores of Southern California to the rugged beauty of Colorado and I LOVE living here with my wife, youngest son, our cat and our Siberian husky! I've been a professional real estate consultant for over 18 years and have come to love the exciting and ever changing world of helping friends, family and acquaintances buy and sell real estate with the utmost expertise, discretion and integrity. I've achieved the Hall of Fame designation with my former real estate firm, RE/MAX and have consistently outperformed the majority of Realtors in our area.
Some people buy homes to get a start in building personal wealth through equity appreciation, others for the tax advantages of owning investment property AND appreciation but all see real estate as the most stable and predictable way to retire wealthy. My company, Gordon Properties has been very successful with over $60 million in cumulative sales, so I have a vast amount of experience and training available to you! If these qualities are important to you, call, email or text me and let's get started on making your dreams a reality!
Russ Gordon's Blog Posts
I am an experienced agent in nearly every area of the residential real estate market here in Colorado Springs including first time homebuyers (who are a lot of fun), resales and new homes, and have concentrated on staying on top of the market by earning my Certified Distressed Property Expert designation (CDPE) and the NAR Accredited Buyer Representative certification (ABR.) I've also invested a lot in the last couple of years educating myself about property presentation and working with high net worth individuals and have recently earned the Luxury Home Professional designation. I hold a Master's Degree in Organizational Leadership.
It's important to emphasize that I value clients in every area of real estate and don't limit myself just to the luxury home market. I still very much enjoy all variations and challenges of every part of the market and rarely turn down an opportunity to work with nearly anyone who has a sincere desire to make a lifestyle change by buying or selling a home.

Testimonials for Russ Gordon
Alex J. (military officer)06/09/2015
Very pleasant and easy to deal with. Friendly demeanor that invites conversation. Russ is very professional, did not \"push\" any properties, gave honest feedback, and was always there to answer questions or do research as requested. It made the selling/buying experience much more pleasant than it otherwise could have been!
Russ was amazing!! We told him exactly what we were looking for and he setup a personalized website with houses that fit our needs. He was very patient and showed us several houses until we were able to find our dream home.

Russ was very professional and rational as we went through the process of finding a buyer and then resolving contract issues before the close. I want to thank him for his support and look forward to working with him on selling our lot.

Russ Gordon helped us sell and buy and we were very pleased with his professionalism and knowledge throughout the process. This wasn't our first time buying and selling a house but the first time we used Russ and we wished we would have had him on our previous houses. One thing that stood out in Russ was when we had our house for sale and we came home one Sunday night to find we didn't have a key to get in. Russ drove up to Monument from Colorado Springs on a Sunday night to access the key in the door lock box and helped us get in!
After having rented for many years, my wife and I decided it was time to purchase our first home. Going into the process we were very nervous, but Russ was able to help ease our nerves as we started down the road looking for our home. Russ was great to work with and helped guide us through each step. From the initial meeting to discuss our needs and desires to the final closing, Russ did an incredible job of helping us purchase our first home. We would highly recommend Russ to anyone looking for a Realtor.
