I moved to the tri city area after graduating from Law and Security Administration at Georgian College in Owen Sound. I have lived in Kitchener, Cambridge and Guelph, which gives me a great knowledge base on different communities in this area. I entered real estate after spending 12 years in personnel and HR management, and being in this profession I had the opportunity to help people from various walks of life. Because of this experience, the real estate world has been a natural fit for me.
Since an early age, I have owned many different homes and my family has invested in several properties with great success. My father is an electrician, and he has always been very adamant on showing me how to identify proper construction techniques in homes. I have always had a keen interest in real estate, so I really enjoy what I do and nothing gives me greater satisfaction than helping people make a purchase or sale on the greatest asset they own. I love Guelph, it's an amazing, diverse city that I am proud to call home. I am constantly keeping myself informed of new developments in Guelph and surrounding areas to keep myself educated to what is happening in the real estate market.
Understanding my clients' needs is the most important factor when we work together and I listen to what you say. My easy-going nature means I don’t push you in a direction you don’t want to go. If I feel a home isn’t a fit for you, I will give my honest opinion. If you’re not satisfied- I am not satisfied, and I will work diligently until you are!
Keeping up to date on the real estate market and changing legal obligations can be quite challenging. Through education and research, I stay current on changes in the market, the cities we live in and legal requirements, ensuring that you are protected in a real estate transaction.
Being resourceful, honest and adaptable has been the cornerstone to my success in real estate.
My clients see the value of my approach.
As a first time homebuyer, my wife and I were unfamiliar with the entire process of purchasing a house, to say the least. We did some preliminary groundwork ourselves but soon found overwhelmed. Mr. Theodore Russell, not only provided us some house viewing options, but also patiently and thoroughly explained each step of the way. Ted is extremely knowledgeable and professional, and worked hard to get us into the home we really wanted.
We couldn't be happier and would recommend him to ANYONE looking to buy a home.
I am pleased to provide a recommendation for Ted Russell.
I enlisted the help of Ted to help me with the purchase of an investment property . I was relatively unfamiliar with Guelph, and Ted took the time to help familiarize me with the area, understand my requirements in an investment property and showed a tremendous amount of patience as we sorted through the various options. Ted also continuously went above and beyond and always made time to pre-screen potential homes in advance and provided honest and unbiased feedback. I really felt he was a partner in my journey to find the right property and we built a great working relationship based on trust. There are not many agents that are truly as client focused as Ted. Highly recommended Ted Russell.
Dennis and I would like to thank you for the great job you did in selling our property.
As you know, ours was a very unique situation and required extra research and networking to find the right buyer. You never lost that positive outlook and supportive attitude , even when we were losing faith! We feel you are one of the most patient,honest and hardworking fellows we know. Despite your busy work load you never made us feel that our questions or ideas were bothersome.You definitely are client focused and it was appreciated.
Throughout the numerous open houses, trips to view potential houses,and many emails,texts and phone calls, you remained professional,friendly and flexible to meet our needs. Many times this necessitated thinking outside of the box!
Trillium West is lucky to have a person with your integrity,and excellent work ethic in their employ. We have recommended you to many of our friends .We wish you much success in the future,Ted. It was a pleasure working with you
