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.

Hi Richard, We are delighted to write this brief Testimonial to your office and to you personally for achieving the recent unconditional sale of our Metung property.

It is true to say that right from the outset of our initial meeting, you drew on the additional opinions and expertise of King & Heath's senior people from Bairnsdale. This was done to provide supported  joint opinions of Value and its direct correlation to the property we were considering selling at that time.

The eventual Sale Price was in complete alignment with King and Heath's original forecast, which to us as Vendors was very pleasing.

On a personal note,  both Kim and yourself  have made the whole selling experience "stress free" and given we were in the middle of the Covid 19 pandemic, the final outcome is a real credit to your Metung office.

Thank you once again for your efforts, and we would have no hesitation in recommending your King and Heath office to anyone contemplating the sale of their Residential Investment, or Home in the Metung, and or surrounding areas.

In December 2019 my world fell apart when my husband of 43 years told me he wanted to separate. I was in a highly emotional and fragile state when I found a little house on the Metung King & Heath website. The kindness, compassion and help I received from Richard and Kim was so reassuring and helpful as I began my solo journey into the future. Even now, eight months on I am happy to be known and welcomed into their office for a visit. Thank you both very much, I love my new little home.
