Aaron Russo


Buyer Specialist

Aaron Russo began his career life by serving 6 years in the United States Navy as an Aviation Electronics Technician aboard the U.S.S. Nimitz, (CVN-68). After the birth of his daughter, followed by obtaining two degrees from Yavapai College in Prescott and his Bachelor of Arts degree from NAU, he decided to attend culinary school at Le Cordon Blu in Scottsdale. This brought him into a 6-year stretch as a chef and general manager for Coco’s Restaurant and Bakery at multiple locations throughout the valley before signing on as the Executive Chef for Tandoori Times Indian Bistro in Scottsdale, Arizona. Aaron loved creating great Northern Indian dishes for his customers and loved to see the smile on their faces afterward. His transition into the real estate industry was inevitable as he truly wanted to be in a position where he could help people more directly. And it doesn’t get much better than helping find their dream home.

Who do you admire most and why?

There are many people in my life that I admire, along with the accomplishments they have made. However, my brother is the one I admire the most. He has practiced law for over 25 years and has worked hard to become the best defense attorney in Arizona, New York, and Nevada.
