Russell is one of ResortBrokers’ most effective and prolific brokers. He’s won our Sales Broker of the Year Award four times, including FY21 and has been Motel Broker of the Year five times in a row.
In the last six years alone, Russell has sold and settled on nearly 100 properties with a value in excess of $175 million and he’s now regarded as Australia’s premier broker in the motels and caravans sector.
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.
When time permits, Russell relishes time at home with his family in beautiful Narrawallee and enjoys fishing, diving and catching the occasional elusive lobster.
