I am truly humbled by the following words. Thank you x
Wendy helped me with the purchase of my first investment property. As the property was interstate her local knowledge and connections were invaluable. Wendy was patient and did not rush my decision and was happy to wait for the right property to come along that suited my needs. At no point did she pressure me to decide on a property to complete the transaction. Nothing was too much trouble for Wendy. She reviewed my brief a number of times as I got more informed about what I was trying to achieve. She had good relations with other real estate agents which I believe gave her more information to negotiate on the price. She sourced and organised quotes for legals, painters, electricians, air conditioner installers and quantity surveyors to write the depreciation schedule. She was happy to find me a managing agent and would talk to the agent and conveyancer on my behalf.Wendy is very easy to deal with and passionate about helping people find the right property for their circumstances. She managed a potentially very stressful process from beginning to end and I would not hesitate to recommend her to other buyers.
We live in Sydney and started working with Wendy Russell in March, 2017 to purchase an investment property in Brisbane. From the start Wendy provided us with confidence that she was the right person for the job. We are people that like to be well informed and kept up to date with any progress. Wendy and I had many conversations and nothing ever seemed to be a problem for her. Throughout the time Wendy researched and attended many properties on our behalf, and the thing that strengthened our trust in Wendy was the fact that she knocked back many properties as unsuitable for us. Wendy kept saying, “We can do better.” When the phone call came from Wendy and she told us she was excited, we knew that the property was going to be good and meet our criteria. With Wendy’s guidance we knew what the property was worth and made an offer. After some negotiation our price was accepted and because of Wendy we got a very good deal and paid less than what we feel the property is worth. We have just settled on our property and have nothing but praise for Wendy. She is highly professional but also highly personable. I would and have no hesitation in recommending Wendy Russell. We could not be happier.
Wendy Russell represented me at the Auction for an exclusive apartment that I wanted to secure for investment purposes. Wendy’s bidding tactics on the day achieved the element of surprise, and a planned series of knock-out bids saw us secure the property for close to $50K under my original budget. Her well-planned approach, combined with an ability to act strategically throughout the changing nature of the auction undoubtedly underpinned the successful result we were able to achieve. She comes highly recommended.
Wendy’s service is bespoke, from the initial consultation, refining the brief, shortlisting properties, all the way through to settlement – her approach is supportive yet also consultative and when required, assertive. By employing all these traits coupled with her extensive knowledge of the market and the real estate industry she offers a service that is enviable and simple put, ensures results. If you’re looking to ensure you purchase the right property for your specific requirements, Wendy is your woman!
I worked with Wendy Russell in the later half of 2016. I needed to purchase a property that fit my very specific portfolio strategy, which included a need to purchase well below market value. Wendy was able to find me an off market property whose owners had a need to sell quickly. This property was in a great suburb within 10km of the CBD and had a high growth potential.Wendy was able to check off on all of my requirements and negotiated the sale greatly to our favour. As a result we were able to achieve 14.2% capital growth on the property within 6 months of purchase. We would not have been able to achieve this result without Wendy’s expertise and guidance. I look forward to working with her again in the very near future.
Wendy spent over two months working with me to secure the investment I was hunting for. In this time I found her to be very honest and knowledgeable in all aspects of the real estate industry. Wendy approached all steps in the purchasing process with confidence and assurety especially when it came time to go to auction. She has very good contacts in the industry, proven when rental appraisals and building inspections were organised in extremely short notice. Furthermore Wendy’s sharp negotiating skills achieved an unexpected discount on the final purchase price. If you’re looking for a reliable buyer’s agent with a broad knowledge of the industry I would highly recommend Wendy.
We are growing our overall investment portfolio, and put simply, the best thing we’ve ever done with property was engaging Wendy. We’re suspicious folk, and particularly when it comes to real estate as that suspicion is generally justified. But the thing with Wendy is there isn’t a catch, sale, hook or stuff up, she is simply legit the whole way through. What’s more, if you ever look at her fee and question it, I can hand over heart say it is worth every penny, and this is based on simply maths: having her EASILY freed up 60 hours of our time hunting, negotiating, managing, inspecting, and travelling. This time and stress is something we simply don’t have to give. On top of that, you get the benefit of a qualified professional’s advice, negotiation, task management and delegation (keeping solicitors, financiers, agents in check), and her contacts - which all hold intangible value. She’s the kind of person you would trust referring your grandmother to.
There was no way, even with my experience in property investing, that I could of secured that property, at that price with such little effort on my part. Wendy Russell is a woman you want in ‘your corner’ when buying a property in Brisbane.
After plenty of open homes and painful real estate agents, I am happy to say I am now a proud home owner in Brisbane. Thanks to Wendy for picking out this beauty with me.
Thanks again for the fantastic work you did to win the auction for us. You were so impressive from the first time we spoke on the phone and then every time after. Your professional and efficient service was the best we’ve ever had from a buyers agent and it was really nice working with you on this purchase.
Hi Wendy, I just wanted to drop you a note on behalf of Christine and I on our recent Brisbane acquisitions. Thank you most sincerely for the energy and patience you brought to our investment search. As you know we had been looking for some time in a number of different markets. Your ability to uncover the hidden opportunities we secured was greatly valued and ultimately I think we have secured a great deal. You have saved us both time and money, but more importantly I am confident we have secured properties that will deliver the right result over the long term - and that is why we engaged you. Thanks again and we look forward to staying in touch.
It has been a pleasure having you represent me as my buyer’s agent. Your knowledge of the property market was evident from the outset and I could see why you had chosen this property for me. I particularly appreciated the frank advice from you rather than just making potentially empty promises or, just telling me what I wanted to hear. Achieving an off-market purchase that ticked all of the fundamental investment boxes is exactly what I wanted to use a buyer’s agent for and you certainly did not disappoint. Additionally, the entire process from finance to settlement was by far the smoothest I have been through yet and I have no doubt that you are largely to thank for this. I look forward to working with you again and would have no hesitation in recommending your services.
From the first call I received from Wendy I knew I was working with someone who to put it plainly knew her stuff both business wise and in general just how to communicate with a client being both very professional and understanding of a novice’s basic understanding of purchasing property which you don’t find as a whole these days without someone trying to go for the big sell, that wasn’t Wendy. Wendy explained that it could be possibly the 1st or it maybe the 50th property she would find but it would be the right place in the right location that ticked all the boxes for a great investment and what a great property Wendy has found me. So from the start of the property search to the final completion date Wendy was informative all throughout the process from a multitude of pictures, showing the finer detail of why the investment property would be perfect for purchase to the historic property data backing it all up and what a daunting task it could of been if it wasn’t for the time that she had invested in the search.. So to summarise the experience I could not of been in greater hands with Wendy and would certainly recommend to absolutely anyone whether adding to there portfolio or to the novice investor like myself to make the whole buying process such a stress free and peace of mind knowing you are in great hands. So till next time i will look forward to working with Wendy. Thanks again.
From our first conversation on the phone I felt very comfortable in you handling the process of our purchase in Brisbane. At no point in any of our conversations did I feel that you did not fully understand what you were discussing with me. You never fumbled on your words or contradict any previous information or conversation. It was very apparent that you had an experienced and sound understanding of purchasing property and of the market in general, particularly Brisbane. Once we decided on Amelia St your correspondence and guidance was exceptional. It was the smooth process I had hoped for and you were very good about my constant calling you to ask questions. At all times it felt you were on our side, and that comfort speaks volumes for a relationship of this nature. It was also very good of you to pick me up from the airport and show me other suburbs around Brisbane on our way to the B&P inspection. I think this adds a personal touch to your services and would recommend it is something you continue to undertake with future clients. In summary, our experience with you has been a pleasure and we have full faith in, and look forward to, you handling our next purchase up there. I wouldn’t want to deal with anybody else. I would also feel very comfortable recommending you to family and friends. You should be very proud of your level of professionalism and the way you do business, keep up the good work.
Anyone who is looking at buying a house for less than they would have hoped for then get in contact with Wendy. She saved me heaps and I didn’t have to do a thing. What a legend!!!
Thank you Wendy for your services securing my first property. Your positive attitude instigated great confidence in your ability to find the right property, at the right price. The faith was duly rewarded, with the result being better than my initial expectations. You have made this process stress free. Thanks so much for all your help Wendy!!!
We have been happy about the buying process. We have appreciated the fact that you kept us constantly updated and answered our questions rapidly. We would not hesitate recommending your services and/or getting back to you for a future purchase.
We engaged Wendy as our Buyer’s Agent on the recommendation of another trusted industry professional. She demonstrated an expert knowledge of the property industry and adopted a client-based approach. As a result we were able to purchase a property in line with our specific investment strategy. Wendy is very personable and her professionalism and enthusiasm exceeded our expectations. Our experience working with Wendy was a very positive one. We would make no hesitation in using her again for our own future investments and in recommending her to friends, family and anyone looking at making a property purchase. Take care and we look forward to working with you again in the future.
Dear Wendy, Firstly I want to thank-you for all your time and effort in assisting me in buying my first investment property in Australia. It was difficult choosing a buyer agent, when we had little knowledge about what exactly they could do for us to buy an investment grade property. Truly all the decisions in life, matters a lot for achieving any goal and our decision with guided luck, had you appointed as our buyer agent. I wasn’t disappointed; the first-hand knowledge you had on the Brisbane market and the consistent follow-up and the communication you had with us was extremely good and professional. Also the “best value” price to quote and tips you gave, on choosing the property was a quality education I got till now about the property market! There was no doubt you are one of the very good buyer agent! The other significant experience we had was, seeing the best efforts you put on negotiating the price and terms for us. I can say I was very happy with the end price and smooth transition of the whole process. I have no hesitation in recommending your services to anyone, and have already done so with my friends. Any property buy would be easy, if you choose the right buyer agent. And it is easy for me now for my next property, as I know Wendy!! Many thanks and appreciation.
I am very happy with your service you have provided me with & would highly recommend you to friends and family any day of the week. Your professionalism is at a top standard & made things feel a whole lot less stressful for me through the whole process.
Tiffanie and I found you to be friendly, trustworthy, and very professional. We are new to property investing and you made the purchasing process easy and enjoyable by being proactive, keeping us well informed and offering good advice.
I would like to thank-you for your amazing assistance in securing a fabulous unit in New Farm to add to our portfolio. The whole experience was pain free (for me at least) and even exhilarating at times !! I really enjoyed meeting you (all be it, over the phone) and the many laughs we had along the journey. Your professionalism was nothing but outstanding, information was provided at a good steady pace and I felt as though you were on our side at all times. The process of sourcing a suitable property is one of my favourite parts in the portfolio building process, so for me to hand that over to someone else was quite a big step. I have no suggestions as to how you need to improve the way you handled yourself or the search for the ideal property as I was very impressed from beginning to end. I am also very grateful for your assistance above and beyond the call of duty with inspecting the wardrobes for me in your own time. If you ever need to convince someone that you are the right person to find them their dream property, please give them my number, I would be more than happy to recommend your service.
We have sold two properties with Wendy in a space of 3 months. As investors we wanted a simple, quick and cost effective process and Wendy ticked all of those. The thought of going through open homes, dealing with agents and having to negotiate with buyers to achieve value in our properties was a process I really wasn’t looking forward to. Having approached Wendy, as a buyers agent, we got to avoid the open homes which was a big plus for us and our tenants and both properties sold within weeks for prices we wanted to achieve. Wendy also brings a refreshing change to your view of real estate agents. She does what she says she will do, she listens to your needs and she makes the process so painless and actually enjoyable. We will definitely involve Wendy in our property investments in the future.
I would like to thank you for your work in finding the right property for me in Morningside. Your constant feedback during the process was very informative and you always left me with a confident feeling and that I was in the hands of a professional. You made yourself available at all hours of the day and I was pleased that there was no pressure from you to accept any particular property. Even though I have not met you personally, I could tell by our telephone conversations that you enjoy your work and you know what you are talking about. Thanks again Wendy and I hope to catch you on the next transaction.
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.
Big shout out to Wendy for what was a very stress free and smooth transaction for my seller. I have met Wendy previously but this was the first transaction that we have done together. Wendy really understood my clients situation and was very mindful that this was the first time that he was selling in over 57 years. As an agent working on behalf of the seller and when in a multiple offer situation you want to have confidence within the buyer that they understand the process as we are here as the trusted advisor to guide our sellers with what we believe is the right contract to accept. That said it was a no brainer, Wendy gave me complete confidence that this would be a fast and stress free process. Anyone looking to engage in the services of a buyers agent give her a shout. She most certainly knows her craft and will work in best with everyone to work towards a result where all parties are satisfied. Thanks again Wendy, looking forward to the next transaction with you. Cheers Lance
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.
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!
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.
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.
Hi Wendy,Just dropping you a quick line to thank you for being so professional and prompt with all real estate dealings that we’ve had. You really know your stuff and work super hard for your buyers, that’s for sure! I look forward to working with you on the next one!!
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!
I have worked with Wendy Russell over the past couple of years and I can highly recommend her as a Buyer’s Agent. Wendy is extremely focused on providing the best level of service to her clients and this is displayed through her results. I have no hesitation in recommending her as a competent professional Buyer’s Agent. It’s a pleasure to work with her.
t 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.
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 now worked with Wendy Russell on several occasions to help her secure property for her clients. As a local agent I am in constant communication with several Buyer’s Agents and I can honestly say that working with Wendy has been concise and straightforward with regard to getting the deal done and with keeping both the Sellers and Buyers satisfied. Her communication skills with her buyers are excellent. She certainly works diligently for them and her level of expertise is outstanding. I hope to work with Wendy in the future by introducing her to my future properties for sale. I would certainly recommend her services to buyers who need assistance with securing the right property for their needs.
I recently worked with Wendy in the purchase of a property in Coorparoo and I am very delighted to say that Wendy always has her client’s best interest at heart. As a real estate agent I am always in communication with buyer’s agents and happy to say that Wendy far exceeds any one that I have had the pleasure of working with. The sale/purchase was a seamless transaction with her negotiation skills certainly assisting her buyer purchasing a property. I would be happy to say that I wold be happy to work with Wendy in the future.
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.
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.
I just wanted to drop you a quick not to say thank you for your help in selling Alma Road at Clayfield. It was an absolute pleasure to deal with someone who takes pride in their work and is a true professional. Your support and assistance throughout the whole process was much appreciated and I look forward to working with you again in the near future.
If you are look for a straight talking, passionate real estate agent, you can’t go past Wendy Russell. Her local market knowledge and desire to achieve the best outcome for her clients is second to none. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Wendy as your real estate representative.
As you know I have business relations with a number of Buyer’s Agents in Brisbane but consider you to be up there with the best I have worked with. Your enthusiasm for real estate is obvious as is your endeavour to get the best possible property, at the best possible price, for your clients. Not only would I be happy to recommend you to my clients I would actively encourage them to use your services in order to secure the right property. I look forward to a continuing working relationship and sending you the first details for any new suitable listings for your clients.
