The following testimonials were written by just some of my happy sellers and buyers. They have all been kind enough to give me permission to show you their correspondence. Their letters and words are very gratifying. It seems that my down-to-earth and honest approach has earned me many friends - I think that's fantastic!
"When we first decided the time had come to purchase a home, we chose Brent Russell to be our Realtor. Choosing Brent was a decision that has had a huge impact for us - it would be very difficult to find someone with a comparable professionalism, commitment, and knowledge of the area. With our first home, we let Brent know what we were looking for, and he delivered with something that met almost of all our criteria in very short order. One of his greatest traits, and one that we didn't even factor in to our choice when we chose his services, is his ability to help a first time buyer see the often unseen details that turn an average property into a great one. With regards to professionalism, at no point in the process did we feel rushed or pressured to decide. Brent made us aware of time limiting factors like other offers, but also gave us lots of time to think and discuss our decision. We purchased our first home and were very happy for five years. There was no doubt in our mind that we would use Brent again for our latest home purchase., with some unique requests. Brent listened to what we were after, and began showing us properties that showed clear evidence of understanding in what we were hoping to purchase. This was a time consuming process, as we went to look at a plethora of properties. Brent showed the same interest and drive with the first house as the eventual winner. We fall more in love with our new house every day, and are grateful to have someone like Brent help make a purchase of this kind so simple and transparent. If you are considering purchasing or selling a home, you can remain confident you are in more than capable hands with Brent Russell. Thanks again, Brent!"

“I’m writing today to offer the highest praise my wife Glenda and I have to offer, with respect to Brent Russell. We flew into Nanaimo from Regina earlier this month and spent the first 2 weeks looking for a house, patio home or condo to buy, using Brent as our Realtor. The professional level of communication that took place between Brent and ourselves prior to our arrival gave us confidence that we would later be well taken care of. The confidence was no mistake. From the outset, Brent took advantage of every opportunity to make us feel comfortable during our home search. We never felt that he was anxious to “make a sale”, never felt he was “pushing” us in any way, or in any particular direction. We felt (and still feel) that Brent was more concerned with helping us find the right place and that the sale of a property was a far less important part of the process…and one that takes place in it’s own good time. When you deal with a Realtor like Brent, who is well-organized, caring, professional, the process of buying a home becomes as pleasurable as any inherently stressful process such as this can be.”

“We wish to acknowledge the wonderful and highly professional working relationship we enjoyed with Brent Russell (no relation). We look forward to the next deal.”
"Buying a house can be complicating and exhausting, but having Brent help us made the whole process easy and fun! Brent went the extra mile in terms of service and general concern for our comfort. We were moving from Vancouver to Nanaimo and looking for a house in an unfamiliar city on our own was hard . Brent would pick us up at the ferry and have six or seven houses in our price range set up to view with no time wasted. Brent's assistance made buying a home seem effortless. When we are ready to sell our house and look for a new one, Brent Russell will be the one we turn to."

"As first-time home buyers, we couldn't have asked for a better Realtor than Brent. He educated us every step of the way, and made the search and purchase process enjoyable. Brent asked lots of questions about what was important to us in a home, and reminded us of these things at each viewing. He never pressured us, and made sure we didn't settle for a place that wasn't right for us. When we did find the perfect home, Brent was on the ball, ensuring we got our offer in first. Brent is very professional, yet comfortable to be around. He thinks of all the details first-time buyers don't know to think about. Thanks for helping us into our first home Brent!"

"When we inquired about a piece of property for sale in our area we met with Brent Russell from RE/MAX. We were so impressed with the way he handled everything in such a friendly and professional manner. We decided to sell our home and listed it with Brent. We have nothing but praise for him and would not hesitate to recommend Brent to handle any of our real estate needs. He goes that extra mile which we appreciate. We bought the property and sold our home and are now building our retirement home. Brent is very enthusiastic and wants to satisfy everyone.
Thanks again Brent."

"We were referred to Brent through a friend as "an exceptional Realtor" to help us find our new home. I must say Brent goes far above and beyond the previous quote we were given. Since we have owned previous homes to this one we have dealt with multiple Realtors in the past and I will say our experience with Brent was by far the best. Brent sets an example in his profession that many other Realtors should pay attention to. We were absolutely pleased with every aspect of how Brent helped us out. He is the guy that we will refer to anyone. When it comes time we will ask for his help again! Thank you Brent."
