Russ retired from law enforcement, after a 24 year career in California, and moved his family to beautiful North Idaho. 
He was soon bit by the real estate bug, earned his real estate license in both Idaho and Washington, and dedicated his time to his second career and passion, finding the right home for his clients. 
North Idaho and Eastern Washington are great places to own property. The area is full of recreational activities, culture, and excellent schools. When looking for a home, it is crucial to have a licensed RealtorĀ® on your side. They will take the guess work out of purchasing a home, by knowing what is important to you. Russ will help you find the right home.

Russ is a rockstar, He found me the perfect new home - Nick G


We call Russ, Santa Claus, for finding us the right home and being able to move in before Christmas - Tom & Evelyn 


Russ is one of the few honest realtors out there. He listens and cares that you get the house you want, not the house he needs to sell. Russ has been right by my side every step of the way. - Bill G


Russ worked hard to find the perfect house for us to call home. We've bought and sold several homes, and Russ made this the easiest and most efficient transaction to date. We would request his service again and highly recommend him to our family and friends. -  Bruce and Joanne B


Not only is Russ one of the nicest people you could ever meet, but in addition his ethics are absolutely rock-solid.  We were impressed with how hard he worked to find us our new home.  He was never pushy, instead allowing us to make our own decisions.  We honestly felt that finding us our new home was more important to him than getting his commission.  We know he was also busy with other clients, but he always made us feel like we the most important.  We'll work with him again in a heartbeat, and recommend him to all our friends. - Scott & Stephanie F.


We were very fortunate to work with Russ Woodward to help us find a retirement home in North Idaho. He was very patient in showing us around the entire area and educating us about the pros and cons of each. Russ is a good listener which is very rare. He was always more focused on answering our questions, giving us good feedback, and showing us a variety of properties in different areas than he was on closing a deal. We have highly recommended Russ to friends  and family.  We appreciated his great communication during the search, timely on-going communication, and then most importantly through the inspection and closing process. He's a true professional.  He pretty much became part of our extended family as a result of our purchase process.  - Frank & Cyndee D
