I first met Wendy Russell when she viewed one of my auction properties, and from the very first moment I knew that I was dealing with a thorough professional. She had carried out extensive market research of the property in question, as well as the surrounding area. She was able to quote the capital growth percentage of the previous three years and was well aware of all the recent sales in the nearby vicinity. She knew the school catchments, local public transport links, flood risk, expected rental return and the development potential of the site. Every necessary piece of information had been researched so that Wendy’s client was in a position to make an astute educated decision about a substantial investment. I have since encountered Wendy at many of my properties, and I can truly say that her market research techniques and local area knowledge have increased.

Wendy is also a very shrewd negotiator. She comes armed with a well planned strategy, she knows how to read the play, and she exudes confidence in her bidding. She plays to win, but doesn’t let her emotions cloud her judgement. I have seen Wendy walk away from a bidding war if she believes it’s in her client’s best interest to do so.

As well as being a high calibre operator, Wendy is also an extremely charismatic young woman with a wonderful sense of humour. She effortlessly relates to people from all walks of life, and she has a natural warmth that allows you to instantly feel at ease.

In summary - I have the greatest respect for Wendy Russell, both as a person and as a fellow professional. Would I recommend Wendy to one of my closest friends or loved one’s? Yes! Would I engage Wendy to act as my Buyer’s Agent/Auction Strategist? Absolutely!

You simply cannot go wrong with this incredibly talented individual.

Wendy Russell bridges the gap between buyer, seller, auctioneer and agent with strategies that take the pressure off buyers whilst at the same time, getting them in the game and placing them forefront to being successful at auction. With the property market now more competitive than ever, more and more buyers should be considering the services of an experienced Buyer’s Agent and Auction Strategist. It just makes sense.

I cannot recommend Wendy Russell highly enough. Her professionalism on behalf of her clients was a pleasant change from the normal experience I have had. She was a pleasure to work with and was prompt and decisive in her decisions for her clients. My clients were more than happy to negotiate with Wendy due to the way she followed through on anything she said. An absolute pleasure to deal with you Wendy!

Simply The Best. I have been in the real estate industry for almost a decade and in my time I have met a lot of characters. Some good, some bad, some not worth remembering. Every once in a while you meet someone in this business that you remember long after your first encounter. Sometimes it’s the way they hold themselves, their knowledge, their passion, their dedication to their craft or their commitment to their clients.

Wendy Russell is someone that you will not forget. With an aura of elegance and gritty determination focusing on the outcome that she wants for her clients in every situation. Wendy’s reputation is built on the most simplest and effective concept in business, hard work. If you are looking for an advocate to guide you through the process of buying property then you must speak to Wendy. I’m not telling you that you should use her just off my recommendation but you at least you need to give her a call and see what she is all about. Within the first minute of chatting to Wendy everything that I have said will make sense to you and I would then encourage you to put up your own testimonial for this incredible woman and real estate specialist.

Working with Wendy is an absolute treat! She is a tough negotiator and it’s very obvious that she works hard to get her buyers a great deal and too the front of the pack in a hot market. I’ve worked with Wendy previously on multiple properties and she is one of the only true professional buyers agents. With market knowledge that is beyond comparison and a tenacious personality she has proven time and time again to get her clients great deals. Ten stars for Wendy!
— Jackson Oram | Coronis Coorparoo (0411 584 585)

Wendy always acts in the best interests for her client. She is well researched, quick, sharp and knows how to negotiate. She has worked hard for a long time to create good relationships with agents all over Brisbane which is crucial when it comes down to getting those tougher deals together. These relationships and this experience is something that you can’t put a price. Keep up the hard work.

It was an absolute pleasure working with Wendy on the purchase of Moreton Street, New Farm. Not only were her buyers pre-qualified and ready to go, she inspected the property at short notice on behalf of her client and made a quick turn around with an offer. This was all within three days of the property hitting the market. Wendy was able to secure the property for her client prior to our first open home. Everyone involved in the transaction, including the owners and ourselves were appreciative of the seamless and stress-free transaction. We relish every opportunity we get to work with Wendy.

Wendy Russell acted as agent for a buyer on an Indooroopilly listing I had for sale. I have been in real estate for 15 years and must say that Wendy is the best buyers agent I have ever dealt with by a country mile. Her in depth market knowledge and skills in negotiating set a new industry benchmark. Should the buyer have acted directly and without engaging Wendy as their agent, they would have paid more for this property and with less favourable terms. She certainly proved her value to her client and I would not hesitate to engage her as my agent on any future transaction. There are plenty of agents in this industry but very few have the care factor to always do what is in their clients best interest. This is why I think Wendy is a success and will continue to be in the years to come. I offered this testimonial to Wendy because I think she deserves it.

I recently worked with Wendy Russell on the sale of 128 Sydney St New Farm. I have worked with a number of buyers agents in my time and I can’t say that there are many out there as professional as Wendy Russell. She was as pleasant to deal with as one would expect from a dedicated real estate professional. The service she supplies to her buyers is exceptional, furthermore her enthusiasm and passion for the industry allowed for an enjoyable sales experience. Her negotiating skills offered a willingness to compromise where necessary and she managed to work closely with me to secure a great deal for all parties involved. I would highly recommend Wendy to any buyers who are looking for the most professional advice when it comes to securing their next investment.

As a Buyer’s Agent Wendy recently arranged for the purchase of a property in Windsor for an investor. I was the selling agent and I was impressed by Wendy. She was extremely thorough and professional throughout the buying process. Her attention to detail was impressive, from the initial inspection, through the negotiations and up to and beyond settlement. Wendy displayed a depth of knowledge of property and the market and what should be expected in the features, condition and price of a property. She recognised when a property was well priced in the market place and represented good buying value and she was able to secure the purchase swiftly in the face of competition. I would not hesitate to recommend Wendy as a Buyer’s Agent. Neither would I hesitate to give Wendy a buyer’s advantage by providing her with early notice of a property about to come onto the market for sale. I am extremely confident that Wendy’s clients are in very safe hands.

I have just completed a sale of a unit with Wendy Russell as a Buyer’s Agent for one of her clients looking for an investment property. What a delight to work with someone who knows exactly what their client is looking for in detail. Her professionalism and real estate knowledge must be an asset to the clients she is working for.
— Craig Smith | Tim Altass Real Estate Bulimba (0419 783 457)
I have been involved in many transactions where Wendy Russell has acted as the buyer’s agent. In all my dealings with her I have found her amongst the most proactive Agent I have dealt with in my 20 years of practice. Wendy takes her obligations to the buyers she represents very seriously, meticulously monitoring the legal process on behalf of her buyers from the negotiation stage through to settlement.

It was an absolute pleasure to work with Wendy recently. Wendy’s professionalism and understanding of the industry was very evident in the way she ensured that her buyer’s requirements were fully qualified before introducing them to a property. Clear communication and quick response times are an absolute necessity when you are wanting to achieve a great outcome for a buyer. Wendy certainly didn’t let her buyers down when it came to acting promptly and professionally on their behalf. Since entering the industry in the 1980’s, I have worked with many buyers agents and unfortunately have had some disappointing experiences. In this instance however, I can only say that her performance has been exemplary and I look forward to working with Wendy again in the future.

I have known Wendy as a client for some years as a result of my role as a Rent Roll Broker. During this time I have had the opportunity to observe the thoroughly professional way that she conducts both herself and her business. Wendy has a great work ethic and the best interests of her clients as her prime objective. Wendy’s attention to detail is at a standard that exceeds that exhibited by the majority of agents that I observe. I have no hesitation in offering myself as a referee on Wendy’s behalf to any client who is fortunate enough to have the opportunity to engage Wendy’s services.
