Anne-Maree Russell – 0403 766 822


Anne-Maree Russell is Australia’s leading authority in presentation-centric real estate sales.

She is the 2020 winner of the International Home Stager Of The Year (Vacant Homes) award at the global RESA (North American Real Estate Staging Association) awards and the 2020 winner of the Queensland Property Styling awards for small residential, large residential and overall Property Styling Project Of The Year at the 2020 HIA and Interior Design Association Interior Design and Decorate awards.

Anne-Maree is also the ONLY Australian real estate agent to ever win a prestigious HIA Property Styling award and has now done so for an amazing 5 years in a row (2016, 2017, 2018, 2019 & 2020). It is easy to see why Anne-Maree is widely regarded as one of Australia’s pre-eminent real estate innovators.

As the Principal and co-founder of Cape Cod Residential, Brisbane’s ONLY, all-inclusive, Staging, Styling and Selling real estate agency, she has pioneered one of Australia’s most effective residential property sales models against the backdrop of new age real estate gimmicks and traditional agency competition.

Anne-Maree’s average days-on-market performance is also unmatched in the Greater Brisbane market (where there are more than 2,700 agents).

For more than 6 years, and across more than 65 suburbs (and every type of home) her average days-on-market for hundreds of sales has been just 14 days! This level of consistency across different market segments is the strongest testament to the consistency and reliability of the Cape Cod Residential sales process.

Anne-Maree is also the founder of The Australian Real eStagents® Network and was one of just 4 finalists for the Gold AREA Award for ‘Most Influential Woman In Property’ at the 2019 National REA Excellence Awards.

In addition, Anne-Maree is an accomplished author (Price Truths and Negotiation Truths) and is a genuine inspiration for other forward thinking agencies around Australia to adopt the value-driven approach of integrated Staging, Styling and Selling.

As a result of her informative, fun and educational social media content, Anne-Maree is followed by more Australians across her multiple Instagram and Facebook accounts than any other Brisbane real estate agent. @capecodresidential, @capecodresidentialstyling and @thenexthousethatambuilt

Formerly a Paediatric Dietitian and professional social media influencer, Anne-Maree is definitely not your typical real estate agent, adopting ‘value’ over ‘volume’ to ensure constant demand for her agency’s services. It is easy to see why the Cape Cod Residential mission statement reads ‘Uncompromising value, unprecedented service’.

Luke Russell – 0403 974 189


As a former research scientist, fellow of the Australian Institute of Company Directors, financial planner and finance broker, Luke’s rare combination of technical and negotiation abilities add value to buyers and sellers alike.

Acutely aware that there are no more ‘local agent secrets’ (given every agent, seller and buyer has free access to local sales data) Luke understands that, now more than ever, it’s all about the PROCESS an agent uses, and not where the agent lives or works.

Luke’s background has allowed him to add substantial value to the Cape Cod Residential sales approach and the market leading track record the agency has forged.
