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.
Having met Richard for the first time was like meeting a long lost relative and we have never felt so welcomed by a stranger. We dealt with 5 other other agents in the area, that showed absolutely no interest in us, then we finally found the pot of gold in Richard. We highly recommend Richard O' Byrne ************ 10 stars.
I would like to thank Richard for helping us find our perfect home. We were living in Brisbane and wished to relocate to the Gippsland region. I had done extensive research on the internet and had a list of 20 properties to visit. We made appointments with several real estate agents and arranged to stay in Gippsland for 2 weeks to see as many properties as possible. Richard O’Byrne took us to see several of the properties I had ear-marked from my internet search. He saw that we were disappointed and asked us to describe what we were looking for and describe what were the most important features. Richard took us to a property I had not selected from the internet and it was perfect. It was the house we bought. Negotiating property purchase interstate is not easy. During the purchase process Richard was always available. As we were moving interstate, we had a great many questions and Richard was extremely helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. When we arrived in Metung to take up residence we were made to feel very welcome.
Richard was an excellent agent who certainly smoothed the process of our home purchase. He was punctual for meetings and prompt in response to requests for information. There was no guile - he was genuine and down to earth so our dealings with Richard were very comfortable. We would have no hesitation in recommending Richard.
Richard is an old-fashioned real estate agent - very straight forward and easy to deal with, we felt very comfortable with Richard's advice and service throughout the transaction. Would recommend to buyers and sellers alike as a reliable and effective agent.
