7 CRE Dads with Kids in the Biz
June 16, 2014


Mark and Travis Russell

Savills Studley EVP/co-branch manager Mark Russell says he loves that his son Pinto Real Estate's Travis Russell actually listens when he talks shop. Travis says his dad has always been passionate about his job, which turned out to be contagious, and it's been a huge advantage to be able to ask him about the business. Mark has loved watching his son mature personally and professionally, and is proud of his thirst for knowledge. According to Travis, the best thing he passed on was determination—Mark refuses to take no for an answer, and taught his son to do the same from a young age. (That's a great skill to have if he ever wants to get into show business.) The duo have a set Father's Day tradition—golf in the morning and then boating on Lake Travis with the whole family in the afternoon.
