You see, I’ve been in this game for 18 years now and boy have I seen it all. The real estate industry has certainly evolved over the years, especially with the advancements of the internet and technology but regardless of this progression, what still remains consistent is the public’s perception of real estate agents.

about the author


My property journey began at just 17 years of age when I landed a reception role at a local real estate office in Redcliffe on Brisbane's north. I remember it as if it were just yesterday... The year was 1997 and it was my first Saturday morning on the job in real estate. Who knew this very day would define a career that has now spanned 20 years and counting. I guess no one ever grows up wanting to work in real estate, but for me, I took to it like a duck to water, and now, many years later, I'm potentially helping you to buy what could be your dream home, first home or perhaps your next investment property.  

My journey to become one of Brisbane's first Independent Buyer's Agents has been somewhat typical to any long standing career in real estate. I started at reception, did a fair stint in property management, geared up to marketing... and then onto sales, all the while thinking, "I could do this better". 

... and with that thought came the opening of my very first real estate office in Gladstone. It was September 2004 when Investwell Properties opened the doors to the Goondoon Street office with myself as Principal Licensee at just 23 years of age.

I've since owned two independent real estate offices, personally invested in numerous properties from residential houses to small scale unit developments and now, I've arrived at what I would consider my true calling... an Independent Buyer's Agent, with Brisbane as my focus.

If you're curious, you can learn more about my personal investment journey here.

But for now, thanks for stopping by. I look forward to working together soon.


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.

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 $50,000 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.
