Meet one of ResortBrokers’ most effective and prolific brokers. Since joining us in 2011, Russell has excelled covering a beautiful, diverse region taking in the NSW South Coast, Snowy Mountains, Canberra and Southern Highlands.
Russell came to ResortBrokers with extensive business expertise, including in the accommodation sector. He has owned and operated enterprises including motels, service stations, an NRMA depot, and a highly successful abalone fishing licence.
Importantly, he has also run several motels. Experience at various times as a motel buyer, owner, operator, and vendor has given him invaluable insights.
Raised in Goulburn, and having lived on the South Coast for 30+ years, Russell has unrivalled knowledge of his region. He says it is one of the most solid accommodation business areas. Supported by both the holiday and corporate travel markets, it less subject to seasonal fluctuations.
Fostering relationships with customers and working towards the best outcome for all parties are his priorities. That, and keeping his finger on the market pulse. Recently, high demand for caravan parks on the South Coast has been a strong market feature.
In the three years 2016-18, Russell concluded an impressive 53 motel and caravan park sales for a total value of close to $120 million, including six sales that exceeded $5 million.
Such success is underlined by a string of accolades including repeated quarterly Top Salesperson awards, a 5-year trophy for Top Sales Achievement, and the ResortBrokers ultimate annual Top Sales Achievement awards for three consecutive years (FY16 – FY18).
When time permits, Russell relishes time at home with his family in Narrawallee and enjoys fishing, diving and catching the occasional elusive lobster.
