What our customers say

See all

Hi Russ, I’d like to thank you for your professional approach regarding our enquiry. We have bought and sold dozens of properties and continue to be disappointed with agents across Australia. It was a pleasure to connect with one of the few who understands and respects the true definition of an agent. Even though we didn’t complete a sale on this occasion, we look forward to crossing paths in the future. Goof luck and keep up the good work. Best Regards,

Zac Bojanic

Hi, we are Michael & Michelle Cowling, long time Sanctuary Cove residents. Having decided to sell our investment property at Gracemere Circuit, Hope Island and after having the property previously listed with a large agency for over 4 months, with minimal activity, irregular feedback and one very poor unqualified offer, we decided to pursue another agent. We were aware that Russ Putland was returning to the Real Estate arena and sought his expertise. Initially unconvinced with Russ’ suggested marketing approach, we made the decision to “give it a go” and listed the property in mid-July. Within 3 weeks Russ attracted the first offer. After 32 inspections and 4 further offers, we accepted a contract which was $20,000 above our realistic expectations. The property sold, settled and new owners have moved in. Most important to us was the continual follow up and feedback Russ provided during both the marketing and legal process. We are aware that Russ is already in discussions with other friends and acquaintances of ours within the Sanctuary Cove and Hope Island area regarding the sale of their properties. If you are about to sell and seeking stress free, positive and professional outcome I highly recommend Russ for the job. I believe Russ acted in our best interests at all times. Please call him on 0414 373 212.

Michelle Cowling

I have known Russ for 20 + years. He was my former employer “twice”. His attitude to his working environment and real estate knowledge is second to none. He is generous and treats everyone fairly. Understanding different personality traits within as well as your clientele is something he has fine tuned. To listen and make people feel comfortable, receiving referrals, along with repeat business is what Russ is all about. Being a local living and playing golf in Sanctuary Cove is an added bonus. Russ ’attention to detail and ethics are held in high regard. His memory for properties and people is quite rare.

I first met Russ in Sanctuary Cove 19 years ago in 2002 my wife had property in Mermaid Waters which local “negative” agents had been unable to sell for 6 months. Russ persuaded us to list the property thru his Helensvale office, some 20 kms away. We have nothing but praise for the innovative “Marketing Campaign” Russ employed, achieving a sale within 6 weeks at a “Price Above Expectation”. So impressed were local residents Russ listed and sold a further 3 properties within a couple of months. My expertise is 40 years in the Real Estate Industry and Russ comes with my highest recommendation.

Gordon Duthie

Prior to arriving in Australia 7 years ago, I was a Managing Director of a South African company employing 1000+ people. I met Russ soon after emigrating and he soon became well known to the many South Africans living here. It is very apparent that he has a vast knowledge of Real Estate in Sanctuary Cove. During his absence he has given guidance to many of the residents. He is scrupulously honest, extremely well informed and has a “large network” in the property world. His return to L J Hooker and Real Estate will be a breath of fresh air.

Stanley Mandelstam

Russ Putland is a well known and respected member of the Sanctuary Cove community. He has run a very successful Real Estate business in Helensvale for 15 years. I have had dealings with him in real estate matters and found him to be knowledgeable and clear in his advice and in his opinion and I for one would have no hesitation in placing my business in his hands if and when the occasion arises. Russ also has the advantage of living in the community and being across the day to day activities that are happening resulting in a good general knowledge and appreciative of the climate that currently exists.

During the past 30 years I have come to respect Russ as a person of integrity, personality and of immense family values. In this time I have also come to respect Russ as an exceptional residential sales and marketing professional and an astute owner and manager of residential real estate business. Russ’ willingness to professionally satisfy the needs of either buyer or seller and to “go the extra yard” where required to achieve the best outcome for his client is a testament to his long and successful career in residential sales and marketing. I am aware of many satisfied clients that Russ has supported over the years including many of my own family and friends.
