With 23 years’ experience in real estate, Geraldine is a Licensed Agent in both ACT and NSW. A wealth of experience, a natural affinity for people and a love of Canberra have spelt success for Geraldine, most recently as founding joint partner in the successful and reputable Rutherford Johnston Properties.

Geraldine is dedicated to her profession and embraces every challenge that comes her way. Her commitment to servicing her loyal clients is evident in her history of selling multiple properties for the same customer. Developing her interest in real estate while working as a partner to her husband Bob in their successful building company, Geraldine began building her sales portfolio in 1995 when she commenced work as a Real Estate Consultant at a local Hawker agency. She completed a Diploma in Business (Real Estate Management) in 2000, moving on to receiving numerous awards as the number one selling agent at Peter Blackshaw Belconnen and in 2010 these skills were subsequently rewarded with a partnership in that business.

Geraldine is passionate about Canberra and invested in the community, having lived here for more than fifty years, raising three children and more recently, partnering with youngest son Steve Duff, who she swears keeps her eternally young and at the forefront of industry trends and technology.

The blend of youth and enthusiasm between the pair have provided professional client services to sellers and buyers alike, offering excellent negotiating skills and genuine empathy for their clients. Continuing their work together now under the name of McIntyre Property  have expanded their South side business to now have a presence on the North side, taking over Rutherford Johnston Properties.

Away from work Geraldine is an extremely proud parent and grandparent, a social  golfer and a committed animal lover.

Geraldine has been awesome on all aspects of property management. I originally bought the house from Geraldine (as agent), then rented the place out through Geraldine and eventually sold the property through Geraldine. So from personal experience I can say Geraldine is an absolute gem of  a real estate agent.

Andrew Steel

Geraldine and Steve are  brilliant to deal with! We have bought a home from them, had  them  manage a rental property and they also sold our family home. They operate in a way that is friendly, professional and comfortable and have an understated confidence as a result of comprehensive and proven market knowledge. They are generous with their time and were always very gracious with managing our requests. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending them to others.

Geraldine did a great job with the marketing, and selling of my premises. She had great knowledge of the current market, and also the appropriate price range. Her communication skills were terrific and I would use her again in the future.

Well done. Geraldine is a great agent to deal with and highly competent.


I was very satisfied with the service provided by Geraldine. She was very upfront, responsive and transparent with the sales process. I was very happy with the outcome and would recommend her if you are thinking of selling.


We purchased our lovely house in Broulee from Geraldine Rutherford. We were very impressed with Geraldine, and appreciated her honesty, professionalism, flexibility, and attention to detail. It was a pleasant experience, unlike other experiences we have had with other agents. Geraldine was very straightforward, easily contactable at all times, answered all questions well, and provided a personal approach to the sale which we greatly appreciated. We would recommend Geraldine very highly to anyone looking to buy or sell a property.
