About Carl Russell

I love meeting new people. As a salesperson, being the creator of situations that bring all parties great joy and satisfaction, is why I’m in the real estate business

My real estate career began in 2015 when I joined an Auckland CBD apartment team and I won Rookie of the Year for the Central Auckland region in 2016. My success spurred me on to starting my own company with a colleague. We saw an opportunity to create a dedicated Viaduct real estate agency and in November 2017, Viaduct City Apartments was born. 

I also started a short term property management company and at the peak of our enterprise in late 2019, we managed close to 60 apartments across the Viaduct. I grew and developed a team to a point where I had close to 20 staff working for me.  Both businesses experienced great success until the market was seriously disrupted by Covid.  I had to make some tough decisions around my future and we closed this business. 

I’ve always been interested in selling houses and deciding to work for Barfoot & Thompson was an easy choice for me. Their unique selling strategy whereby they allow any of the company’s 1,700+ salespeople to introduce buyers and share information on any property that is listed, greatly increases the reach of property campaigns, which in turn is of great benefit to my clients. I realised I do not have to ‘sell’ the Barfoot & Thompson model. More so, advise clients on the structure and benefits of using us versus our competitors, and the choice should be an easy one.  

For me, being based at Barfoot & Thompson Mission Bay is like a dream come true. I love everything about the water so having a view of the beach when I arrive at work sets me up for the day. I’ve lived in the Eastern Suburbs all my life and have great local knowledge. I live here now with my very supportive wife and three kids. We all enjoy boating and take as much time as we can to escape to the family bach on Rangitoto. However, as my real estate success soars, boating is becoming less and less! 

I’m all about people and you will find dealing with me a calming and joyful experience. I understand what sellers are looking for when choosing an salesperson to market their home, and believe me I have the drive and desire to work the hardest I possibly can to secure you the best result. 

Call or email me at Barfoot & Thompson Mission Bay, or you could drop into the office and see what I mean about the view. Let’s start creating your joy!
