Erin Russ, Esq.
Founder and Broker
Originally from North Carolina, Erin Russ has made Boston home for more than a decade. Through wearing a number of different hats in the world of real estate, Erin has gained an in-depth understanding of every type of real estate transaction. This helps to ensure that any deal Erin oversees will be an excellent investment for her clients. Whether working with buyers or sellers, towards the suburbs or in the heart of downtown, Erin is armed with the skills necessary to provide her clients with quality representation and impeccable service.
As an attorney for Zerola & Associates, Erin represented clients in new condominium development matters, real estate closings and with a variety of landlord/tenant issues. Erin went on to further develop her legal and brokerage skills at Otis & Ahearn. While there, she worked with outside counsel, development team members and real estate brokers to help prepare condominium documents and presentations, purchase & sale agreements and other contractual documents. This position also provided Erin with a thorough understanding of downtown Boston and suburban real estate market data and trends. As a result of this eclectic experience, Erin was able to fine tune her negotiation skills and gain a comprehensive knowledge of the greater Boston real estate landscape.
Erin recognizes that each client is unique. In order to find practical solutions that are tailored to each client, Erin listens and adjusts her strategy to match their distinct needs and address their concerns. Erin’s experience and approach, combined with her strong commitment to ethical and strategic business practices, make her an exceptional ally and advocate for each of her clients.
"My husband and I were on the never ending house hunt and Erin was with us through the long process. She was fabulous in obtaining information about properties and neighborhoods and surrounding locations. She ultimately helped us find our 1st home only a few months before our daughter was born. We were feeling a bit stressed about the entire process and what to expect as we were both 1st time home buyers. Erin was amazing in outlining the process, walking us through everything and making sure we were comfortable with each step along the way. I would highly recommend Erin as she is thorough in her due diligence, knowledgable in the subject matter and trustworthly and in the end that's what you are looking for in a broker."
- Jordan Mangan
Client Service Associate
"Erin helped my wife and I buy our first house just a few months before our son was born. It was an extremely stressful time and she was very patient with us by expertly answering the 100s of questions we had. She even went the extra step of helping us find a mortgage broker and title lawyer. My wife and I have recommended Erin to numerous friends, which they have sung her praises as we do. The bottom line is she rocks!"

The home buying process is not solely about finding your new dream home - it is also about becoming part of a community. At Foundation Realty Group we believe that when we take the opportunity to look beyond the bricks and mortar we see that there is a great opportunity to make another type of investment when buying or selling your home - an investment in your local community. It is from this fundamental tenet that our Community Enhancement Program was born.
Through the Community Enhancement Program we provide each client with a list of local non-profit organizations. We then request that our clients select one organization that they are interested in supporting* and we, in turn, make a donation in the amount of 5% of our sales commission to the chosen organization in the client's name.
To qualify as a recipient, an organization must meet the following criteria:
- The organization must be a non-profit or charitable group; and
- The organization's purpose and activities must be focused locally.
We feel very strongly about helping to enrich the places in which we live and work. If you are a non-profit that fits the above criteria and you wish to learn more, please contact us.
* Clients who wish to donate to a non-profit group that is not included on the provided list of organizations are free to do so as long as the organization meets the criteria set forth herein.
