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.

Surpassed Expectations

Richard with his professional yet jovial personality managed to get me into my new home in 30 days.
I was interstate when I contacted Richard to purchase a home that wasn't even for sale. Richard organised an inspection with my daughter and the offer was unconditional that same afternoon.
Richard was quick to respond to all of my concerns and with light hearted comedy made this purchase stress free.
Thankyou so much

THANK YOU SO MUCH RICHARD!!!

After going through the summer fires and covid-19 we felt our property would never sell, but Richard proved us all wrong. He would always turn up for an inspection immaculately dressed and his ability to match the correct buyer with the correct seller, saved us a lot of unnecessary inspections and angst.
Richard knows his market very well and has the negotiating skills to seal the deal you are after. It is very refreshing to have an Agent who is actually working for you and not the buyer. We have now listed our land with Richard for all the reasons above.

Our decision to choose King & Heath for the sale of our property was an easy one as we have purchased with them before. The sale was swift considering conditions were very testing with bush fire followed by COVID. Nonetheless our property was sold and this is a credit to our agent Richard.

He has been professional and knowledgeable throughout and we thank him most sincerely for getting the job done. We would not hesitate to recommend King & Heath whether you choose to buy or sell.

We engaged King & Heath Metung for the sale of our home. From the initial appraisal with Richard, and throughout the complete process of the sale we have found Richard & Kim to be both professional and friendly. We especially appreciated the timing of Richard bringing potential buyers through the home, and giving us enough time to clean up after two young children & pets.

Richard made us feel comfortable and at ease through his friendly, enthusiastic & informed approach that we were sure he could promote our home to potential buyers in the same manner. We were not disappointed.

Thank you Richard & Kim!

As first home buyers, Richard has made the buying process less intimidating and was readily available to answer our questions and facilitate our requests. His personal assistance and that of First National King & Heath has continued from the initial inspection to settlement day.

We couldn't have had a better first experience when stepping into the property market. Thank you Richard.
