Tim has outstanding knowledge of the Kaleen market. We achieved a great result based on his expert advice.

Have known Tim Russell for a number of years and have always found him attentive and knowledgeable about the Canberra real estate market. Tim's communication during the sale process was excellent.

Warwick Jones, Kaleen

The property we presented Tim with was an unusual one and even though there wasn't much to go buy in past sales that were similar to it he was still willing and eager to help. Through the whole process he put 100% effort in and communicated with us on a regular basis. In the end the property did take a bit longer to sell then we hoped for but it was because of his trusting nature he was able to bring a very difficult potential buyer to the table. I would highly recommend Tim and his team and would not hesitate to use them in the future if needed.

Tiffany Welch, Giralang

Tim Russell and his team at LJ Hooker Kaleen made the sale of our property easy, stress-free and they were able to achieve a great result prior to Auction. No question went unanswered and Tim Russell's patience and professionalism instantly put us at ease; we knew our property was in very capable hands. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Tim Russell to any of our family and friends and will definitely be asking him to sell property for us in the future when the need arises.
