We had the good fortune of connecting with Tim Russell and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Tim, how do you think about risk?
It’s fundamental belief that risk taking is paramount to success, I feel that we are taught a conventional way of life , go to school get a job and save. In contrary when you look at any successful person no matter their arena they have always taken a risk, they went against the grain and believed in themselves. There would be no Apple, Disney, Or Amazon. I believe risk has been vital to my success and career.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
What sets me apart is that I tailor my real estate transaction to my client specifically , and it’s more of a luxury catered style culture i’ve developed , I’m your one stop shop for not just luxurious properties I have access to luxury motors, aviation and yachting so my upper echelon clients can enjoy the LA lifestyle to it’s full extent. It wasn’t easy , as a realtor you work for FREE until your transaction closed but the gratification at the end, I overcame challenges by being persistent and using platforms like social media to catapult my business and expose me to an array of clients. One thing I would like the world to know about my brand is that you will not got an experience like this nowhere else in the world we truly put the client first and make sure they are taken care for life not just for the real estate transaction.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
If my friend was visiting , we would have to check Nobu Malibu amazing views , then a night out on the town at my favorite spot The penthouse at the Huntley hotel, great atmosphere good music and amazing drinks.

I would like to shout out my Uncle Jimmy God rest his soul who always taught me the importance of real estate whether it was owning property, becoming an investor or agent. My Uncle Lonnie who always stressed being your own boss and having a business. All of my friends and clients, and last but not least my WIFE who believed in me from the jump when I was ready to quit my business she motivated me and believed in me and got me back in the game.
