Russell Shaw is one of the best and the brightest blog authors and agents in the RE.net.  He has spoken at Bloodhound Unchained, has written for BloodHoundBlog and is currently a superstar at the award-winning AgentGenius.

Here’s an excerpt from his bio:

Russell has been in the real estate business since 1978, all with John Hall & Associates. He has ranked among the top 1% of all agents since 1991. In 2002, taking 504 listings, he ranked # 28 for all agents in the United States for number of units sold. Most recently – for 2006 – the Wall Street Journal recognized the Top 200 Agents in America and awarded Russell # 25 for number of units sold.

He has been a featured speaker many times at the national convention for Certified Residential Specialists and has also spoken at the National Association of Realtors convention, as well as routinely speaking at various real estate offices and meetings.

Russell and his wife, Wendy are part of the first study of its kind, ever – real research being done at the university level on lead generation.

He is featured in the book, “Billion Dollar Agent” and was featured and quoted extensively in the best selling book, by Gary Keller, “The Millionaire Real Estate Agent. Even though not with that company, Russell has repeatedly contributed to the curriculum for Keller Williams University. He experiences no greater joy than to mentor fellow agents and see them succeed.

The Fredericksburg Area Association of REALTORS® is really lucky to have Russell coming to speak for two sessions at our 2008 Tradeshow on September 17th.  Russell will be there along with VAR’s special counsel Lem Marshall and several other speakers.  You can get more information on the FAAR Webpage.
