After holidaying in Metung for decades, Richard and his wife Felicity moved to Metung to open their successful restaurant ‘The Metung Galley’. After 8 years they sold the restaurant and Richard has now returned to his earlier career in the real estate industry, joining the Metung Sales Team in April 2017.

Living and working in Metung, Richard enjoys a great relationship with the locals and with families that holiday here. Richard is kept busy in his spare time with his three children and is an active member of the Metung CFA and community groups. He loves to spend time entertaining family and friends, especially out boating on the Gippsland Lakes.
Richard has a very friendly easy-going personality but has a very fair but firm manner when required in negotiations. Richard’s sales results in the short time he has been with King & Heath have been outstanding, with both Vendors and Purchasers singing his praises! ‘Professionalism’ and ‘getting the job done’ are some of the quotes that have been attributed to his real estate performance.

It was a huge emotional decision for us to sell our much loved property, but right from the start Richard, Kim & Ian provided the support and understanding we needed.

There was no sense at anytime that this was merely a business transaction. At the start we were asked to supply a written, personal account of our connection to the property and this was used by Kim as a foundation for the advertising.

We also valued their understanding of the intrinsic value of the property, from the northern aspect to the quality of the build and design elements. Again this was captured in the advertising.

The team was always courteous & efficient, they listened carefully and our discussions were productive. Plenty of notice was provided for inspections and responses/feedback was much appreciated.

Although the negotiated selling price  was not obtained, we feel it was not the result of anything other than market factors, and the unconditional offer was a bonus.

Thank you all for your warmth, support and terrific service
