As I live interstate, it was important for me to have someone who could handle things on the ground and solve problems, not create them. Tim handled the sale quickly, kept an eye out for my property and made sure I was kept in the loop when I needed to be. Local knowledge and being in the area on a day-to-day basis made Tim a great custodian of my property and I was confident he was working for the best sales outcome on my behalf.

Julie Smith, NSW

Tim Russell has the vision, energy and drive that made selling our home as painless as possible. His enthusiasm kept the campaign on track and achieved the great result we were after. I have no hesitation in recommending Tim and his team to any prospective seller.

Chris Baseler, Jervis Bay

very personalised, professional approach and open ended aggressive marketing strategy with no prior mindset on price yielded good returns. Tim is very understanding, honest, family oriented and down to earth excellent fine human being. Would recommend Tim Russel to any one needing his services with confidence that he can achieve the desired results.
