Russ Hilderbrand

Sales Associate
License #:

As an agent who's an expert in this local area, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate here. It's not the same everywhere, so you need someone you can trust for up-to-date information. I am eager to serve you. Here are some of the things I can do for you:

Find Your Next Home
You need someone who knows this area inside and out! I can work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter - not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home

Sell a Home
When it's time to move, you need someone who will advertise your home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I can take care of everything you need, from start to close.

Consult on Home Selling Tactics
Oftentimes buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast.

Personal Background

I moved to Ft. Myers with my family from Worthington, Ohio in 1973.  After attending the University of Florida, I returned to the Ft. Myers area.  I served for over seven years as a Reserve Police Officer with the City of Cape Coral.  I have over 25 years of professional marketing experience...20 years with print and online yellow pages.  I am very familiar with the local market.  I am extremely customer service oriented and love the real estate business.  I really enjoy helping people sell their home or find a new one.  I currently hold Graduate REALTOR® Institute, Accredited Buyer's Representative, Short Sale and Foreclosure Resource, and Seniors Real Estate Specialist designations.  I have successfully marketed and closed several short sales for my clients.  I also work with several investors who are acquiring income properties in Southwest Florida.

I am an avid reader of Stuart Woods, Tom Clancy, Vince Flynn and others of that genre.  I also enjoy traveling and riding my Harley Davidson with friends and family.  I have two children and a grandchild who live in this area and I am fortunate to spend quite a bit of time with them.
