“I have flipped many a house over the years, but nothing prepared me for Cape Cod Residential.
Like a conductor in an orchestra with unending passion and energy, I watched in awe as the plan was set and the team coordinated with the utmost of respect and professionalism (which is outwardly reciprocated by all).
The hours spent ‘behind the scenes’ and ‘attention to detail’ are beyond what most of us could ever fathom having the energy or time for with no stone is left un-turned and every last opportunity maximised for success.
If there was a bar for real-estate agents – this is it. A one-stop package that will make your home shine at its best – you wont regret entrusting your greatest asset to A-M and her team. (We will definitely be back!)”

Anne-Maree Russell and Cape Cod Residential, where does one start?
Dedicated, hardworking, impeccable style, high attention to detail, protects and stands strongly for her clients, highly approachable, honest, tells it like it is, flamboyant, a joy for all to be around with her high level of fun, enthusiasm and complete love for her work, her clients, her buyers and the industry, both Real Estate and Design. Anne-Maree works at lightning speed with positive energy from start to finish, always with professionalism, ensuring your needs are always met, so hang on to your hats!!!
Cape Cod Residential is a rare experience. If you are lucky enough to be one of their clients you will have unlimited support and advice and you will feel as if you are not actually part of a real estate transaction but a wonderful unique experience where Anne-Maree and her dedicated professional team pull out all the stops.
From the minute your project begins with Cape Cod Residential you will be provided with exceptional marketing and product brochures, extensive social media coverage, a wealth of knowledge discussed with you during the process information provided on statistics and sales in your area and advice on which areas to improve on your property to maximize your sale prior to listing if required.
Further to this, staging and styling is an area which can cost a seller considerable amounts of money, not to mention finding someone who can perform this highly skilled, highly talented job in perfecting your home and creating a magazine shot for every room for both photographs and weekly open homes. We cannot explain the eye for detail, colour, placement and perfection Anne-Maree is graced with. She exceeds expectations and literally creates the perfect property in every sense of the word. The transformation which takes place is mind blowing for both the sellers and the market. But what we are grateful for is the fact that unlike other packages, Cape Cod Residential DO NOT charge you for styling and keeping the furniture in your home during the sale period. Seriously! This is part of the real estate package provided to you, no strings attached. This in itself and the ‘extra’ work Anne-Maree performs was a gift and one we are truly grateful for.
Each week (there were only three) we looked forward to hearing her arrival and seeing her bright happy face ready to tackle another day as if it were the first. From each open home the numbers of people who arrived were incredible, the buzz and hype created around her sale is like no other.
Is there another Anne-Maree Russell ? NO. Is there another Agency like Cape Cod Residential ? NO. Do not think twice, the best thing you could do for your property and your investment is to call Cape Cod Residential and put your trust and faith in them to look after your future like we did. Anne-Maree and her team have given us the outcome as set out from the beginning, all promises were kept, she strove to achieve our goal from start to finish and we are over the moon with the result and so is she because she really cares.
Thank you to Anne-Maree and her team for giving us the opportunity to move forward on to the next stage of our lives where we are happy and content. We had so much fun with you and will forever remember the experience. We could not have achieved this without you, we are eternally grateful.

“When we decided to sell our little cottage six months ago now, the only person I would even contemplate to do this was Anne-Maree. From our very first meeting all those months ago, we planned and schemed the operation to present our cottage in its best light, taking into account highlighting all the lovely features the cottage offered and which we fell in love with when we purchased it for our home.
Month by month we followed Anne-Maree’s instructions to the tee and the time came for us to put the house on the market. Anne-Maree and her team came to visit and started scheming on how they would present this house, as presentation is EVERYTHING to a successful sale. I cannot emphasise this enough. Anne-Maree and her team “polished” our home and the end result was astonishing. We had the most delightfully styled home to appeal to all our buyers and our little cottage was under contract within 6 hours! We could not be more impressed or pleased with the way Anne-Maree and her team managed our sale right from the word go. We had invested so much already into our home and Anne-Maree added the WOW factor! In my heart I knew that my little cottage could shine brilliantly if the right person was allowed to work their magic and that came in the form of Anne-Maree.
I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Cape Cod Residential to every seller who is thinking of listing their home on the market. Our planning beforehand was crucial in making our house present in the best possible light and it was such a pleasure to work with Anne-Maree and her team of absolutely wonderful people who could see our vision and worked with us to achieve our best possible outcome. Everything went so smoothly it was really hard to believe! And that is the way selling a house can be and should be!”
Catherine and Peter Lynn, Windsor
Our decision to select Cape Cod Residential to manage the sale of our home was an easy one. In all of two words … Anne-Maree Russell! When we first met Anne-Maree we were instantly drawn to the impeccable styling of the property that she was marketing at the time, but more importantly her friendly and engaging personality was the real drawcard in our opinion.
Without any doubt, Anne-Maree knows the real estate business hands down; combined with her ability to sell she also has the vision to create beautiful spaces that goes a long way in promoting your home. At times the process became daunting but Anne-Maree was there guiding us with expert hands and keeping us to up to date with buyer feedback. She also managed to lighten situations with her humour (we shared many laughs together) and we can honestly say we had fun preparing our home before handing it over to her each Saturday. But when the offer came in Anne-Maree worked both swiftly and professionally to close the deal and delivered the outcome that we were seeking.
All in all, we can not speak highly enough of Cape Cod Residential and Anne-Maree Russell is who everyone should seek to sell their home. We will continue to sing her praises for many years to come.”

“In January of 2015, Carmel and I put our home of 22yrs on the market. We had several of the local realtors in for appraisals, figuring they would best know the local market. Like every other home owner I had higher expectations than were realistic, but I was totally unprepared for the appraisals I received from the local “experts”. To be fair, it was a difficult to appraise as there was nothing in the local area to compare it with, which is how they mostly arrive at their valuations, by comparing similar property sales.
I was contemplating keeping it and renting it out but the thought of it being knocked about would have really upset me, it had been a truly wonderful family home and it needed another young family to nurture.
My daughter, who had been following Cape Cod Residential on Face Book and realestate.com.au, suggested we contact Anne-Maree as she had been following her results, and said she had been getting consistently higher sales prices than similar properties in their respective areas. So we did.
Opened the front door and thought “Another bubbly, blonde bombshell saleswoman”. How wrong could I be!
Anne-Maree is one of the most passionate, dedicated and talented people I have met. She is one of the very few people who truly love what they do for a living. It wasn’t luck, she has worked hard in different careers to reach where she is today.
They say that every bride has her day, Anne-Maree gave our home of 22yrs its ‘Bridal Day’. With her eye for detail, industry contacts etc she made over our home and put it on the market. It had never looked so invitingly comfortable. Depending on which of the local real estate appraisals you benchmark from, Cape Cod Residential achieved $60,000 to $90,000 above what we were told we could get in the current market.
We have appointed Anne-Maree to sell another property for us when she returns from her holiday and would highly recommend Cape Cod Residential and Anne-Maree without hesitation to anyone wishing to sell their home.
Thank you for helping us attain top value for our home, it has made our relocation so much easier.
Yeah, you are one hell of a Bombshell!
Chris and Carmel, Balmoral
“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 donʼt 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.”
