“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. Your fans,”

“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!)”

Amanda and Jason, Camp Hill


“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!”

“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.

While she gets results AM isn’t perfect – her taste in music is deplorable, her fascination with cushions, unbelievable. She has however discovered the importance of Sheds.

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 McKay, 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 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

“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


“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.”

Cheers,”

Kim & Stuart Cleary, Ormiston


“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.”
