“Sincere thanks for your dedication and professionalism with selling our home. Your facilitation of the sales process was seamless. The options you proposed were on the mark.

We were grateful for your expertise and sound knowledge you shared on local market data, particularly in the local area. We were constantly informed and consulted through every stage of the process.

In particular, we were impressed by the attention to detail in your styling, staging and meticulous attention to the ‘fine details’. Your unwavering enthusiasm displayed during the sales campaign was an absolute standout.

We also wish to acknowledge your exceptional hard work, dedication and professional ethics. These characteristics demonstrate an absolute perfectionist and an agent who works in the best interests of the vendor.

The sale price was a great outcome. We would highly recommend your bespoke agency for the amazing service and expertise.

Future vendors don’t even seek an alternative agent when you have the amazing Ms Anne-Maree Russell (Wonder Agent) available who can deliver an excellent sale price with panache.”

Kathryn and Shane, Norman Park

“We are so pleased we chose Anne-Maree, from Cape Cod Residential, to sell a house we owned.

From the moment we first met with Anne-Maree we felt at ease and confident that she would put everything into selling our house.

She did the most incredible job styling the home. It was absolutely perfect. Her attention to detail is incredible.

We had so much fun every time we met with her and she made every stage enjoyable.

Anne-Maree kept us updated through every step and worked so hard to get the best possible price for our house, even selling it within a month. The whole process went so smoothly and this was due to Anne-Maree’s dedication.

We can’t recommend Anne-Maree highly enough if you are thinking of selling. We have never come across another agent like her.

Dean and Jen Wood, Carindale

“What an agent!!! A-M was fantastic. From the outset she was professional, understanding and determined to make our selling experience first class. A-M amazed us with her styling flare for staging the property.

We set her a challenge, a three week auction campaign, that she handled extremely well. I was amazed at how hard and long she worked to secure groups to come and view the property. On top of all that the property achieved an amazing result and sold at auction.

A-M made the process very easy for us and I would not hesitate to recommend her to any prospective seller. She really does go ‘beyond the call’….. ”

Leanne and Andrew Harvison, Rochedale South

“Wow! One of the most exceptional Real Estate Agents in Brisbane! (I work with real estate agents day in and day out – I have been around Brisbane’s real estate circles for many years).

Anne-Maree is the ONLY agent in Brisbane that personally stages every property that she is selling – the result is picture perfect presentation every time – it produces truly beautiful images. Combined with Anne-Maree’s genuine passion and brilliant marketing plans, her sellers are achieving fast results and at record prices.”

“I had the pleasure of dealing with Anne-Maree during the selling of my parents’ home.  She is so tenacious and such a hard worker.  Nothing was overlooked.

I would not look any further than to Cape Cod Residential to sell in the future and I would recommend her to anyone.  Anne-Maree sets the bar so high that I feel sorry for other real estate agents.  It would be hard to compete against such a genuinely dedicated and passionate person.  In addition to this – she is a lovely person to deal with and truly cares about the people that she is working for.”

Mary-Louise Rowell, Graceville

“A-M is a brilliant real estate agent. In fact, she’s more than that. She’s a stylist, stager, furniture providore and procurer, confidant and market knowledge powerhouse.

A-M delivered her excitingly stocked van to my house and unloaded her precious cargo – taking my home from a pretty, comfortable, lovely family Queenslander to spectacular, jaw-dropping, heart-stopping brilliance.

I didn’t once consider using anyone else, and she will absolutely be my first phone call next time.

A-M is the business. She goes beyond the call of duty at every stage – from initial contact and advice, to daily chats, to regular reports, to hard-core negotiation. You won’t be disappointed.”

Jennifer Campbell Case, Camp Hill

“Anne-Maree is more than just a real estate agent! Anne-Maree is the complete package and goes above and beyond!

Through her amazing eye for style and her design skills, Anne-Maree transformed our family home into an amazing space, resulting in 9 offers after our first open home and a sale price that went beyond our expectations.

Anne-Maree was a delight to deal with. We have no hesitation in recommending Anne-Maree. She is one of a kind, which is so rare in her industry.”

Paul and Clare Robertson, Annerley

“Thanks A-M for doing such a wonderful job selling our home. You made it such an easy process, during a really busy time for us.

We didn’t have to worry about anything because you were so organised. I didn’t realise how empty our house was until you came in with your beautiful styling and lifted the look and feel of our place before it went on the market.

I can’t thank you enough for your amazing efforts.  Three days on the market and a price above our expectations! Doesn’t get much better than that!”

Stacey and Michele Capannini, Sherwood

“Anne-Maree, there is no-one that I have met thus far who takes the personal interest and approach to selling someone’s property as you do.  When we first met with you, there was no doubt in our minds who we wanted to sell our property, hence our signing with you immediately.

We would have no hesitation whatsoever in listing with you again and recommending you to anyone interested in selling their property.”

Therese Ferlin, Wakerley

“What a refreshing experience to have the guidance and assistance of Anne-Maree Russell when purchasing our new home.  Thank you for keeping us advised at every point of our purchase.

Anne-Maree did not hesitate going above and beyond making our purchase easy and smooth.  Nothing was too much trouble.

Not only was Anne-Maree very helpful in the actual purchase process she has been such a delight to deal with. Positive, bubbly, friendly, professional, honest and trustworthy.  I was also grateful for Anne-Maree’s expert knowledge on renovating ideas!

My husband and I are delighted to recommend Anne-Maree.”

Rachelle & Anthony Richardson, Mt Gravatt East
