I decided to use Richard Ivey as the selling agent for a property (a bush block) that I owned in Bruthen, he had been involved in the sale of two other very similar properties in the surrounding area. I felt due to this that he would have a strong understanding of the potential interest that a property like mine could generate. After a friendly and professional conversation via the phone, he gave me a clear and concise overview of how the real estate market was preforming locally and that there was certainly interest and people wanting to buy forested lifestyle blocks. This however was not your average block of land, it was certainly going to be a bit more channelling. From there it was clear, he was the 'man for the job'. Over the course of the sale period (around 100 days) I got regular calls and weekly updates, he was very easy to work with, I got clear and valuable advise as to how to present the property, suggestions as to any extra paperwork ( there was a conservation covenant over the property and access was difficult ) to provide and a continued positive attitude re-enforcing that we just had to wait for the right buyer. All of this helped to ease my mind, knowing that I had an experienced and highly professional person working in my best interests. Richard went the extra mile in the sale of 385 Dead Cow Track, it was always going to be difficult property to sell, he certainly earned my respect and admiration, not to mention reduced my anxiety. It is due to this that I would highly recommend him to anyone, I feel that I made the right choice in choosing him to help me. The right man for the job! I have since asked Richard for advise and guidance on the purchase of another property, this was something that I have done due to his understanding of the real estate market, that I trust his knowledge base and that we communicate well with each other.

How delighted we were to have chosen Richard Ivey as our agent. From the moment he discussed his marketing approach we knew we were in good hands. Richards knowledge of the local area and his professional marketing approach saw an abundance of potential purchasers viewing our property in no time. His marketing style and 'can do ' attitude was truly impressive and his follow through with keeping us in the loop was excellent. We felt he walked us through every step of the way and there was never a doubt that this property would sell with his expertise at the helm.
