"I highly recommend the team at The Mark and Grether Group in Malibu. Tony, Russell, Nicole, Justin and Nikki are a great team and provided outstanding service on our recent real estate transaction. They are friendly, knowledgeable, and very responsive. I look forward to working with them again in the future!" - Kent
"Russell, Tony, Nicole and Justin make a great team. From start to finish, even though it was a long road, they were communicative, helpful and all round a delight to work with. They always ensured to make sure that our needs were being met, as well as trying to do the best to market our home to buyers. Thank you all for your amazing work!" - Jenny
"We could not have been more pleased with Russell and Tony and the way they handled our off-market purchase of a highly sought-after Malibu townhome. Absolute professionalism in every sense of the word. They truly differentiate themselves from others in the field via a data-driven approach to analyzing price and relevant comps, attentiveness to even the most minor details, and punctuality throughout the process. My wife and I literally cannot speak highly enough of Russell and Tony and would recommend them to anyone that truly values this level of professionalism and service. We were genuinely ecstatic about how they handled a relatively complex transaction. Moreover, we're confident that if we had chosen anyone else to represent us, we would not have enjoyed such a professional experience throughout the process." - Mark
Russell Grether has broken the traditional stereotype of real estate agents. He is at the forefront of the next generation of realtors who can be successful without sacrificing his core values of integrity, honesty, kindness, and fairness. Russell is a founding partner of the Compass Malibu office and is in the elite top 1% of sales associates nationwide.
After years of growing up in rural Ventura County on an avocado ranch, Russell graduated cum laude with a dual degree in International Business and Spanish from Pepperdine University. He transitioned into the real estate industry and has remained there for almost 15 years. Some of his notable sales include celebrity landmark estate parcels, large income ranches, beach homes, and commercial developments.
Russell is an avid surfer, rock climber, and sailor. He has traveled the world surfing exotic breaks and loves the adventure of going to new places and experiencing different cultures - especially if that involves his wife, Elizabeth, their German Shepard, Riley, and the newest edition to their family, Sage! In 2017, Russell joined forces with Tony Mark to create "The Mark & Grether Group." Together they have over 35 years of real estate experience - bringing their clients the expertise and reliability they need!
