Chiodo Realty Group
Over the past decade real estate has been in a constant state of change. Brokerage firms and real estate agents have had to reevaluate their approach to support these changes. Homeowners were impacted by fluctuating home values and tight lending. Eviction, cash-for-keys, short-sale and REO (Real Estate Owned) became household words discussed by all socioeconomic classes. It was during this time that Russ became a licensed Realtor in Central Florida.
Originally from the Great Keystone State of Pennsylvania he is the oldest of five siblings, but only by five minutes, as he shares this position with his identical twin brother Ralph. After attending college, Russ joined the United States Air Force as a telephone installation technician for Tactical Air Command and was stationed at various bases around the world. Eight years later he moved into the private sector working for The Walt Disney Company, AT&T Wireless, and then finishing his career in telecommunications at Cingular Wireless.
Now a licensed Realtor, Russ placed his license with Keller Williams Realty (KW), located on the East side of Orlando. During his first few years at KW he discovered a niche in REO sales and quickly became the go to agent for REO leadership and guidance in the KW family. He earned “Rookie of the Year”, Bronze, Gold, and Platinum honors with KW. In 2009 and 2010 he was recognized in the Orlando Magazine as a TOP 100 Agent. Russ also grabbed top national honors with the Wall Street Journal- “Top 400 Professionals”.
Russ opened his brokerage in late 2011 and is certified as a Veteran Owned Business. Today’s brokers must keep up to date with the technically savvy customer but must be sensitive to those who do not embrace technology. Russ has chosen to use the “cafe” style office design to create the right balance for his agents and brokerage. He states, “A majority of our customers and clients expect “tech savvy” agents who can provide quick, relevant, and accurate data with a personal touch. Creating exceptional service for our customers with an environment that provides synergy for the agents allows Chiodo Realty Group to succeed now and into the future”.
Russ would like to congratulate the other brokers recognized by their peers and the Orlando Style Magazine readership in the article “Top 10 Real Estate Brokers for 2014. “It is a great honor for our office and our business partners who work side- by- side in service to our local community”.
Russ’ personal philosophy is God first, family second, and business third. He is a devoted husband of 13 years to his beautiful bride Kristina. Russ’ faith has lead him to serve at Discovery Church for the past 12 years. He and his wife can be found facilitating married couples who desire to bring God to the center of their relationship. He takes advantage of Florida’s fantastic weather and enjoys RV’ing around the state; especially at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Campground and Florida’s beautiful State Parks.
