Tim Russell and Jeremy were professional, supportive and knowledgeable. They were great to work with and we would be very happy to work with them again.

Sally Bradford Jones, Canberra

Tim displayed a professional and understanding manner right from the first meeting. Importantly, he displayed passion and energy, which was very important to us in selecting an agent. He is genuinely a nice person coupled with great communication skills and a strong drive to get the best outcome possible. Accordingly, we got a better sales outcome than what we anticipated.I would highly recommend him to prospective sellers.

Graham Waite, Kaleen

The only agent I will deal with! Tim is personable, authentic and a pleasure to work with. He is an incredible people's person who takes a genuine interest in people and treats them with that respect. Many people say how stressful it is to sell a house... I had a great time and actually enjoyed the experience. I generally don't like agents and I am highly adverse to paying very generous commissions for mediocre services and results that may people seem to experience. This is not Tim. Tim did a fantastic job at creating a positive competitive environment that delivered results beyond both of our expectations.Yes it was a good market but just the number of active bidders at the auction spoke to Tim's work. He invested incredible effort in to generating interest and creating committed buyers. His dealings were honest and he does not engage in dishonest or cunning tactics. I was kept well informed about the progress of open homes and buyer interest. I felt like I was a part of selling the house. I have been a buyer and a seller with Tim and have complete confidence in recommending him. If you want a great result and to be treated respect and care, go with Tim Russell.

Tims communication throughout the campaign was exceptional. We had phone calls and meetings continually keeping us updated about potential buyers. Tim is so personable. We felt we could ring him at any time to discuss anything. He was always willing to talk at anytime and answer questions.

I wanted to congratulate you to yesterday’s sale of our home in Kaleen. You have achieved a great result which well and truly exceeded our expectations. Thank you very much to you and any of your team members who contributed to this success. With best regards, Horst + Christine

H & C Punzmann, Kaleen ACT

What was important to us in finding someone to sell our house for us, was someone who was honest, up front and realistic. Tim Russell was all of these things. He helped manage our expectations, kept us informed the whole way, and did what he said he was going to do. Tim's team at LJ Hooker Kippax also made us feel welcome every time we visited the office and Tim ensured we were part of the whole process, from giving us ideas on what to do to ensure we would get maximum value for our house to talking us through the whole exchange/settlement process. Our settlement period only took 2 weeks and we were very happy with the process and Tim's professionalism all the way through. Tim's performance was very professional and polite. The thing that impressed us the most was his honesty and helping us to have realistic expectations about the potential sales price of our house. He didn't 'talk big' and promise the world. He communicated back to us all feedback he received and talked us through what we could do to improve the house to get the sale we needed.

Leigh and Sherry McGregor, MacGregor ACT

Tim Russell provided the professional service required to obtain a sale of our property. He communicated with us throughout the process and took the time to explain the sales strategy for obtaining the best price.
