Hello all! We have identified several free-standing commercial properties in Elk Grove suitable for the Center! Working to narrow it down. See More


The Russell Group Project
Small Business Development Center

The Russell Group Project plans to execute its mission by establishing a Small Business Development Center where Small Business Owners can receive valuable insight, consult, and education and avail themselves of a plethora of business resources, including Commercial / Business Finance. The services provided by the Center will always be offered at a minimal cost covering fee, or altogether free of any charge.

The Russell Group is seeking funding sufficient to leverage the purchase of a freestanding Commercial Office building in Elk Grove, CA. Additionally, funds are needed to appropriately equip the building with the resources business owners undoubtedly require. Fees earned from provision of Commercial Finance solutions, and financing fees paid by Russell Group/ERS contracted Lenders and Banks shall cover property and operational expenses.

The Russell Group Project will also establish a reserve to create a scholarship fund. The Russell Group Project Scholarship Fund will provide tuition monies for entrepreneurial and career minded businessmen and women to take pre licensing courses for Real Estate, Residential Mortgage, and insurance licensing. The Russell Group Project Scholarship will get these individuals licensed, operating, and building their own Small Business.

The Projects success will be measured exclusively by the success of its Members. With every Small Business Member who joins as a non-fundable venture, and becomes a fundable and viable Member through the consultation, education, and business resources provided by the Center will elevate our total measure of success!

Join us! Help us bring American Small Business back in a very big way!


The Russell Group:
The Russell Group is a Real Estate & Commercial Finance Agency situated in Sacramento County, CA.  Established by Real Estate and Finance duo Dameon and Sylviana Russell, the Russell Group is an independently owned and operated branch of Elite Realty Services based in Sacramento. The branch is ERS Elk Grove.

The Russell Group consists of licensed Real Estate, Mortgage, and Insurance professionals, as well as certified Commercial Finance Advisors in the ERS Nationwide Inc. companies.

As renowned experts of Real Estate and Finance, and Small Business Owners themselves, Dameon & Sylviana are passionately dedicated to the Russell Project believing that they can inspire, empower, and educate other Small Business Owners, helping them carve a path to success and true Legacy.


A lack of Financial Literacy across many Small Business sectors has led to a measurable deficiency in general business acumen and higher fail rates for American Small Business ventures.  The Russell Group Project is a Small Business Owner collective self-tasked with increasing the success rate of Small Business through Financial Literacy education, business training, value-added free workshops, and easy access to Commercial Finance.

Additionally, Members will benefit from education and training on successful marketing strategies, the application of technology in their business, social media techniques, and Business Continuation strategies to ensure the survivability of their business.  Membership is always free for qualified Small Business candidates.
