Products & Services

  • Real Estate


Real Estate was a natural progression for me after coming from a very successful, long standing Sales Representative background. As much as I loved being a Territory Manager, in 2004 I decided to refine my passion even further and SELL what I love, rather than just selling products for the sake of selling. 

What can I offer you?

I'm a proven performer with 1000+ confirmed Canterbury wide property sales to date.

Rangiora local, specialising in residential and lifestyle properties throughout North Canterbury.

Having sold over 300 houses since the first earthquake, I'm experienced with EQC/insurance issues.

Successfully selling property is not just luck. It's about understanding the key drivers that increase price, ie. Maximum buyer numbers and maximum buyer competition. That's key in my mind set.

Professional photography and descriptive advertising that doesn't reveal your reason for selling.

My service guarantee. If you're not completely satisfied with my service, you can cancel our contract after 6 weeks. That offers you peace of mind. Typically salespeople sign on for 3 months!

 A few testimonials (100’s on file)

Russell was friendly and easy to communicate with - He got me more than I was originally hoping for and more than your opposition were proposing I would have got if I sold through them.. and they also had higher fees." M Earnshal

"Originally we listed with another agency who promised us a high sale price. The agent was unprofessional and only bought us one average verbal offer which became a poor deal when we took into account her fees. Pleased we then listed it with Russell who got us a reasonable offer and saved us about $10,000 on fees." M & J McSkimming

Russell was straight up, efficient and friendly. He had excellent communication and came with a wealth of knowledge. We would definitely recommend him again." M Marshall

"Russell really knows his stuff and he is very professional and knows how to get the best price for your house. I really like his approach and he has so much knowledge. I would use him again and again! Thank you for a really smooth and hassle free sale." R Tooby

"Once again we were exceptionally happy with the service we received from Russell. He worked hard to ensure the house sold quickly and for a good price. This is the second house Russell has sold for us - if we ever move again we will definitely have Russell list our property." H & H Barrett

"This is just a quick note to say a huge thank you for the manner in which you sold our home. You are clearly a professional who is operating at the top of your game Russell and I say this not just because you sold our home within 5 days, but rather about how you went about selling it.

We found your communication with us throughout the entire selling process to be exemplary, your negotiation skills superior, and given our myriad of questions your industry knowledge and general advice on marketing and preparing our home for sale was exceptionally helpful.

Without a doubt, you will be our first port of call when we next need to sell a house. With regards and much appreciation."
