Welcome to Russ Lyon Sotheby's International.
I am a REALTOR specializing in North Scottsdale, Carefree and Cave Creek residential properties and over the past 8 years I have been helping clients fulfill their real estate dreams. My years of business negotiating experience provides me a unique ability to maximize the real estate opportunities for my clients. My passion is to deliver excellence through hard work and effective communication with the goal of exceeding expectations.
My real estate business is built on the strength of 30 years experience as a purchasing executive in the cosmetic, packaging & consumer products industries. Leveraging skills in contract creation and negotiation, I focus on the protection of my clients interests throughout the purchase or sale process.
To provide some personal background, I was born in Cold Spring, New York and grew up in Salem NH. I received my B.S. in Business Management from Northeastern University in Boston and my MBA from Pace University in New York. As an officer, I served 2 years on active duty in the US Army followed by my career in purchasing. My wife Amy & I fulfilled our dream and moved to Scottsdale in 2004. We have 2 children, a son who is a UCONN graduate working in San Diego and a daughter finishing her college studies in Connecticut. I am an avid golfer and enjoy travel exploring the beautiful state of Arizona.
I look forward to the opportunity to help you with your real estate needs.
