Premier Sotheby’s International Realty has appointed Keith Russell as managing broker of its Blowing Rock office, located at 1127 Main Street. The office is a result of the firm’s acquisition of Village Real Estate in early 2016, and it is Premier Sotheby’s International Realty’s seventh sales gallery in North Carolina.
A native of North Carolina, Russell attended Lees McRae College and Appalachian State University, and brings a wealth of experience in second home sales and marketing. His 26-year career assisting buyers with the purchase of real estate is unrivaled in North Carolina’s high country.
Russell joined Premier Sotheby’s International Realty as a broker associate after 25 years of on-site sales at Linville Ridge Country Club. He also participated in on-site sales at Elk River Golf and Country Club. His background complemented by his enthusiasm and sincerity are an asset to our company.
“Keith’s experience encompasses many real estate disciplines, a critical component to understanding buyers and sellers, as well as other brokers,” said Budge Huskey, president of Premier Sotheby’s International Realty. “It is important for us to have extraordinary leadership in all of our offices and we believe Keith will be a valuable addition to the Blowing Rock office.”
