We consider ourselves very fortunate to have met and worked with Renee throughout the home-search and purchase process! From the start Renee has been extremely helpful in understanding our needs, guiding us through the process, providing her keen insight and delivering on an above-expectation experience! We highly recommend Renee!

Renee goes above and beyond in guiding her clients and her follow-up is fantastic! Acting as a buying agent as we searched for investment property and as a sales agent twice, Renee was patient, enthusiastic, and her advice was invaluable in ensuring we were informed and happy each step of the way!

It’s simple, Renee is very good at her work. She is communicative and collaborative and we value the experience and knowledge she brings to any discussions of strategy and/or market and her market intelligence.

Renee was the best! She was calm and grounded throughout the whole process. We were on a timeline and were able to sell the house quickly and pretty painlessly, I believe due largely to Renee’s recommendations for pricing and showing, and her strategies for marketing. Checked in and kept us updated through the various waiting periods, which we appreciated. Highly, highly recommend!

– Kathryn


This was our first experience with Renee, although I’ve known of her for awhile. She offered prompt replies to our queries and was overall extremely valuable in our house hunt. Would certainly use Renee for selling this home and buying another – should that come at some point in the future.



We relied on reviews to select a realtor to help us move to town from outside the Valley and Renee lived up to the rave reviews. Firstly she was great at quickly arranging tours of homes for us to view. She was super responsive to communications, came to viewings with a depth of knowledge and experience that helped us assess each place, and is knowledgeable and helpful in all the other aspects of a house purchase (contracts, negotiations and communications). I highly recommend Renee to anyone looking to purchase a home.

I really enjoyed working with Renee. It was a long distance purchase, and she was very accommodating. She was very patient, and worked with me for over 6 months finding the perfect home. She was great at virtual showings, as well as taking my relatives on showings for me. She listened to what I was looking for, and helped find information about the areas. She’s great at staying in touch, I never felt like I was in the dark, or waiting for information. She was also great at recommending trades to help with some upgrades in our new home. When I need to find someone to do some work, I still call her, even today. She went & did water tests for me, and helped with insurance. She is friendly, smiley, and a wealth of knowledge. A pleasure to work with. Thanks Renee!

Renee has helped me sell my home and now she helped to find/buy my unicorn of a property!! She is knowledgeable, friendly and quick to answer emails and texts. She will forever be my real estate agent.

Renee was absolutely fabulous in every way! She was recommended by friends who also had an amazing experience. I can not recommend her enough!!

– Odette


You will find Renee to be a superb agent, knows the area well and is in touch with current prices. Renee’s very kind and professional in her dealings. I would highly recommend her for both selling and purchasing a home. You would be very fortunate to have her represent your property, and I hope to call on her services in the future.

Having Rene advise on the purchase of this home was a tremendous comfort and very beneficial. She conducts herself in a professional as has a good knowledge of the industry. I recommend her very highly.

Renee is in my realtor in the Cowichan Valley. I have bought and sold 7 properties for the last 3-4 years. As an investor, I need a realtor who knows the market well, is prompt to respond and is on time to show me properties or put them on the market. and that is what Renee is. 5 Star Realtor is the best way to describe her. If you need an “above average” Realtor, you need Renee!

– Guy


Renee was very responsive and never put out by my calls or questions. She was amazing in arranging cleaners and hauling trucks when the seller left my purchase full of personal items and incredibly dirty. She came back to connect with them and check on their work to ensure that I was satisfied with the outcome. Renee stayed supportive and professional throughout what turned into a less than straightforward deal, due to the neglect and complacency of others. I wish all realtors were like her!

– Amber


We had a very positive experience working with Renee selling our Float Home earlier this year. She was very professional and kept us informed daily throughout what is a stressful time. She learned about the unique issues involved in owning and selling an unusual property.Her communication was clear and to the point. We would recommend her to buyers and sellers alike.

– John


Renee goes above and beyond helping her clients to buy a home. We had been looking since July 2018, so she clearly has amazing patience and dedication with all of the service that she has given us; as well as other family members. She is very organized and always provides quick feedback. Renee is knowledgeable and is efficient at setting up appointments to secure your house. We would highly recommend Renee Russell to help you buy your next home.
