After living for more than 30 years in Los Angeles, California, my wife, Liz, and I decided to pull up stakes and move to Savannah with our young son, Dominic, and old dog, Nessie. We toured several cities in the Southeast, and settled on Savannah because of its rich mixture of history, culture, and physical beauty.
A few of the things that we enjoy so much about this city, in contrast to where we came from, is just how easily it is to get around town and meet your neighbors. Living in the south end of Ardsley Park, we are never more than a 15 minute drive from any part of the city and just 30 minutes from the beach. If we want to walk to a park or grab a bite to eat, there’s nothing out of reach… and we are likely to see a friendly face or meet a new one along the way.
So enamored with the Low Country were our parents that both sets (mine and my wife’s) moved to the area within the first year of us being here. Though, part of their decisions may have been based on being here for the birth of our second son, Charlie.
Moving here was definitely the best decision we could have made, and we are very thankful for the extra time we get to spend with our family now. My wife and I were commuting a combined 4 hours per day to and from work in Los Angeles (me as an eCommerce manager, and her as a handbag & accessories designer), and now I am happy to say my trip to and from the Don Callahan Team office doesn’t exceed 7 minutes either way.
Whether you are looking to relocate to Savannah for work or retirement, or moving across town to a different home that better suits your family, it will be my pleasure to assist you in this next big step.

YOU WON’T BE DISAPPOINTED WHEN WORKING WITH RUSS
“My husband and I are first time home buyers, and the process could not have been smoother or more enjoyable. I chalk that up to having Russ Strazella with Team Callahan as our realtor. From our very first meeting it was evident that Russ’s foremost concern was finding us a home that would meet our needs, wants, and be one that we’d one day hate to leave. The questions he asked us made us think deep about what we truly wanted. He wasn’t going to let us settle for the first or second seemingly nice place. He was genuinely invested in helping us find the best place for us. From start to finish he kept us informed of what was going on in the process, answered all of our random and off-hours questions, and kept an eye out for our best interests (from negotiating with the builder to catching an error at closing). After closing on our home he has continued to keep contact to make sure that we are settling in well and still happy with our choice, and we most definitely are; not only with our choice of home but with our choice of realtor, too. I highly recommend Russ and can confidently say you won’t be disappointed when working with him.” — Christian Blount
RUSS WAS AWESOME
“Russ was awesome in helping our family move to Savannah. He was super responsive and extremely flexible. He made it a point to establish our goals and priorities, then helped us understand the options in the market and how to narrow our search. And he’s still a great resource for us while we get settled into town!” — Taylor Quackenbush
WE TRUSTED HIS THOROUGH RESEARCH AND EXPERTISE
“Russ was a dream come true for us. He patiently helped us find the right home over several months. We live out of town so we trusted his thorough research and expertise. He helped all the way through inspection, renegotiation and closing. We are very satisfied home owners thanks to Russ!” — Pat Longstreth
HIGHLY RECOMMEND RUSS
“We’d only been working with Russ for a few short months this year but he sure did deliver. And we have been looking off and on for a retirement home in Savannah for several years. Russ is personable, smart, sense of humor, the whole package. He listens to what we wanted in a retirement home and stayed on top of any new listing that fit our needs. Always very responsive with any questions. I would highly recommend Russ Strazzella and the whole Keller Williams Group.” — Johanna Anderson
