All of the replies above are agents or employee Don't trust them shifty as shithouse rats Ruuuuuuuun
All the agents are crooked rip offs with property values can be upto $30,000.00 difrents between agents
Rentals may include $50.00 pw for water and the rudest agents you will ever meet and will bare face lie to you. So don't trust them.
Hi. I just bought 2 properties on Russell Island and was very happy with the team at LJ Hooker. They were very polite and gave me heaps of info on who buys there, who rents there, why the prices are so low, etc. I was so blown away with their service. I have been buying and selling properties in SA and Vic for 20 years and this team Trent ,Denise and Mitchell are low key, no BS. They just tell you the facts, which are quite something. I spent some time with them and their phones go constantly with people who are doing just what I did, searching on Google for the cheapest properties in the country, seeing the price and getting on the phone to ask why!!!
I'm getting 7% return on the house I bought. Leaves the share market and mainland property for dead at the moment!
Just my experience.
Hi I just bought s cheap block of land and have dealt with Mitchell at l j hooker. He is a nice young guy with great customer service skills who doesn't finish at 5pn on a weekend!! He's still available at 9pm on a Saturday night! No BS and great bargaining on my behalf and as I'm in Sydney hes doing everything for me (I had shopped around and he saved me up to $800 on conveyancing) Im sure he'd help you Sarah
HI. I'm not a Real Estate agent. I was a buyer.
I recommend Kieran of Ray White Real Estate. He was honest and transparent from the beginning of my inquiries, responded when he said he would, and never sent me lists of properties which were outside of my parameters. I told him what I wanted, how much I was willing to spend, and desirable features such as located in the Northern end of the island and access to water/power/sealed roads. He has continued to stay in touch through the settlement process and has followed up relevant parties where necessary.
Kieran lives on the island and has invested there himself - that gave me the reassurance I was seeking. He is an agent who is likely to be your neighbour if you plan on moving to the island and he understands that.
Best of luck in your next hurdle though, conveyancers! I can't recommend a good one of those because unfortunately I didn't find one... :(
I am not sure what you mean by "intellect" but I am sure I have some...
I know what I do have however is a list of 60+ homes ranging from $78,000 up to $1,188,000..
I feel reasonably certain i would be able to show you a choice of homes once I have a clearer picture of your specific requirements...please don't hesitate to call me to further discuss...
Hi, please call, would love to help. You must have some specific questions that can be hard to answer. Also because of the range of homes available we recommend coming to the island to view. Russell Island is a large Island, and each area has its own unique characteristics that only you will know where on the island will suit you best.
Hi we used Simon and Kim at Island Life they live on the island and were superb, they couldn't do enough to assist us and help us fit in, just lovely people and gave so much info on the island. Our friends bought a house through Simon as well and he was excellent he is very relaxed which is something you get used to on the island but not pushy and introduces you to people and the island www.islandlife.net.au Just nice people to deal with
WARNING: DO NOT BUY ON RUSSELL ISLAND.
Agents have simply used the same lie over and over that a bridge will be built when they know it will NEVER be built.
Your rates go up and up and up and up and up for something you will struggle to sell and when you do, it will be for less money than you paid for it and the agents rip you for another $2,000 or more on a $5k - $20k block of land. People sell because they're desperate to get out of the sh**hole.
It's a dump with scumbags ripping off unsuspecting buyers. DON'T end up being one of them.
I recently purchased property on Russell through Russell Island real estate. Bevan was great, straight up and down, no nonsense and tells it like it is. He didnt try to tell me the bridge is coming or any other nonsense. Big tick from me.
Conveyancing, I rang all the first page on a google search and found Ron Lawson the cheapest. He knows the islands well and it seems lie he is pretty good. Let you know in a couple of months.
