“We met Richard roughly 18 months ago while he was selling another property in St Marys Bay and he kept in touch. After showing us several homes in Herne and St Marys Bay, he managed to get a good idea of our requirements. We were staying at our daughters home, getting rather restless when Richard called us to say he had a property in St Marys Bay that he felt would suit us perfectly. This was an off market sale so allowed us time to view on several occasions and really get a good feel for the home and location. Richard helped every step of the way, meeting us on site with builders, designers and architects, I always felt we could pick up the phone and ask Richard for his help at any time. Thanks for unearthing our lovely home, we are very grateful for your service and patience and would recommend you to our friends and family.”
“I previously listed my property at 12 Cameron St, St Marys Bay with another company without success, however after listing with Richard at Harcourts and including the Herald as part of my campaign we successfully sold under the hammer with the buyer coming from the HeraldHomes, thanks guys.”
“My wife & I are close personal friends of Richard & his wife, having known them for the last seven years. As such, people might conclude that our decision to sell through Richard was an emotive one, however the opposite is actually true.
When we suddenly found ourselves in the position of negotiating to buy a new home through a multiple-offer situation, Richard spent a weekend on call advising us / acting as our buyer’s agent. His close involvement in the process was a testament to our successful bid. So having bought first we needed to sell quickly. Cue Richard you might think – Well not quite!
Despite our close friendship with Richard, business is business, so we asked him to pitch for ours in competition with two other agencies (one of which was the major agent in our area). The main reasons we selected Richard to sell our home were the quality of his pitch; the fact he was prepared to listen to our needs; he showed a willingness to think outside of the box and, being a resident, his knowledge of the local area and housing market.
Friendship aside, Richard conducted himself with great professionalism. His knowledge, commitment and all-round personable manner mean we would not hesitate to recommend him to anybody looking to either buy or sell a property. Rest assured Richard will work tirelessly to get a result all parties are happy with. We certainly were.”
“Richard we want to express our gratitude to you for helping us to sell our home. The circumstances in which we had to sell were extremely difficult and time pressured. Throughout the process you were impeccably professional but also sensitive and empathic to our situation. Not to mention patient! For me this understanding was priceless. The net result is that the house was sold at auction for the price we wanted, to buyers who were entirely suited to the property. In a depressed market we have come out in a good situation and for that we are really thankful and relieved“
“Richard did a wonderful job helping me sell my house by auction. I had already moved from Pt. Chevalier to Sydney which I thought was going to make the whole process very complicated. Richard soon made me realise that it could actually be done from so far away. He regularly kept in contact and explained every step. This was the first house I had ever sold and Richard was very approachable for me to ask my endless questions. He worked very hard to assess the market price and in three weeks we had a lot of interested, potential, buyers. I feel that Richard really was genuine in his promise to get the best price. He continued to work hard on auction day for an excellent result. I am now having him help me find a property to buy.”
“We had spoken to Richard and Chris for about a year with regards to the sale of our home. We originally asked for their expertise because we were unsure of the value of our home, other agents had rather vehemently stated that $2m was the limit where we felt it was more than that, Chris and Richard agreed. We then had the great news that my wife was expecting so we put the whole process on hold. Richard and Chris kept us up to date on the market and continually kept in touch. When our son was born we had no hesitation in using Chris and Richard, they exceeded our expectations in every way, and we would highly recommend them to anyone! Thanks guys”
