Anne-Maree Russell - Agency Principal and Creative Director
B.Sc.,Grad Dip Nut and Diet, Licensed Real Estate Agent
Anne-Maree Russell is Australia’s leading authority in presentation-centric real estate sales.
As the 2020 International Home Stager Of The Year (Vacant Homes) award winner at the global RESA (North American Real Estate Staging Association) and the ONLY Australian real estate agent to win not one, but four, prestigious HIA Property Styling awards for an amazing four years in a row (2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019), Anne-Maree has cemented her position 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 strategies 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 four finalists for the Gold AREA Award for ‘Most Influential Woman In Property’ at the 2019 National REA Excellence Awards.
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’.
