"Lana Spera has gone above and beyond to help locate our new property. She is a creative thinker who has proactively worked on behalf of our organization and continues to meet our needs in every way as we approach closing. We look forward to a long business relationship with her and the Russ Russel team." 

"[Lana] is an exceptional realtor with experience and very knowledgeable. Lana helped our medical practice find a location to fit our needs in a very short time frame. She worked day and night, as well as, weekends to ensure that we had what we needed. She is professional, highly motivated, and an absolute pleasure to work with. She worked very hard, has great negotiation etiquette, and kept calm throughout the entire process. She represents the best in a real estate agent, and she has redefined a new standard by which all agents should strive to achieve. I would highly recommend Lana to anyone looking to lease, buy, or sell property. [We] look forward to working with her again in the future as we both know she will do her absolute best to find what we want."
