We are the number one team at RE/MAX in Red Deer, originally started by father and son team Dale & Andrew Russell. As our business grew, we knew that adding the right people was the key to maintaining an exceptional level of consistency and service for our clients, and so Andrew Russell & Associates was created in 2015. Our focus is to provide an unrivalled experience for our clients, so they can confidently refer us to their family and friends.
Teams are a commonly used term in our industry, but many “teams” are not actually teams at all. They are a few agents who collectively advertise together to share costs, but don’t actually support each other’s clients or work as a single unit.
Our team offers a consistent and precise experience with any and all of our agents. All of our listings, no matter the listing agent, receive our premium marketing plan and systems, professional photography, 3D tours, floor plans, drone photography, social media advertising, etc.
Our buyer’s can access properties and information when needed, not solely when their agent is available. Have you ever been left stranded because your agent went on holidays and had nobody to help them? That doesn’t happen here.
Our whole business has been built on referrals from our past clients because we proudly strive to surpass your needs and provide an exceptional experience. I hope we’ll earn the opportunity to assist you in buying or selling your next property.

With more than 75 years of combined experience, our team has the knowledge and ability to help you reach your goals. Our diverse team will surely have a personality and style that you’ll love to work with.
