Paul Kantor

Paul Kantor is an Associate Director at Richardson & Wrench Double Bay and has been a star performer since he joined the team in 1994. Over the years he has produced results that are consistently higher than the industry average and as a result he was awarded the Number 1 Salesperson in the R&W Australia wide network for three consecutive years.

Within the real estate industry Paul is recognised as a true gentleman. Passionate about property and people, he likes nothing better than to rise to the challenge of successfully putting buyers and sellers together. He has a hands-on approach, actively engaging and listening to his clients. His advice is always tempered with the sound reasoning that can only be gained through extensive experience and indepth market knowledge.

Both parties are involved in the possibility of a very significant transaction says Paul, it's not just about getting top prices, it's also about keeping everyone informed and having the energy to make the sales process as simple and stress free as possible. I am very enthusiastic about what I do and I think that's picked up by those who I am associated with and the people I meet every time I show a property.

Testament to Paul's efforts is his repeat business, not just from happy vendors, but also impressed purchasers not an easy balancing act when dealing with what can be a challenging time for both sides.

What People Say

  • Paul Kantor is the most professional agent I have dealt with in my property dealings over the last 40 years. Paul is very experienced, highly knowledgeable and a very good communicator. From the start, Paul had a strategy, he was never pushy about it, he never deviated from it and always dealt with me on a sincere and courteous basis. His reports to me were detailed, first class and, as it turned out, very accurate.

    Paul's Executive Assistant, Lillian Shi, completed all her tasks very diligently and respectfully.

    The auction process was handled excellently by Richardson and Wrench, resulting in me achieving an outstanding result, nearly 40% over my reserve price.

    Bill Gurry - Chairman, Rabobank Australia Limited
  • The result was exceptional, to say the least! We found the team from Richardson & Wrench - Paul Kantor, Phoebe Shepperd and Lilian Shi - diligent, hardworking and very transparent in their communication.

    Selling your home can be stressful, and Paul, Phoebe and Lilian kept things on an even footing throughout.

  • Paul (Kantor) genuinely understands and cares about people. We suspect that the record-breaking price he, Annabelle (Webb) and Marion (Badenoch) achieved for our property was due as much to the fact that they also treated the buyers with real human understanding and interest as it was to the fact that they are just extremely good at what they do. They always made us feel they had our backs. They resolved problems other agents understandably leave for owners to deal with, and usually, they had already resolved them by the time we even knew they existed.

    We’ve sold properties before but never where everything was handled in such a simple, efficient, caring and stress-free way. We were travelling old-fashioned first class where every need is taken care of as soon as it appears. Having experienced selling with Paul, we wouldn’t use anyone else to sell our property.
    Trixi and Eli Symonds
  • Margot and I want to thank you Paul so very much for looking after us so well, we could not have found anyone as kind and caring as you. It was wonderful how you kept in touch nearly every day making us feel secure and managing to find such nice new owners. Hope they will love our house as much as we did and have many happy years. We also want to thank your 2 assistants Susie and Annabelle

  • Now that the sale of my apartment has been secured, I don’t want the moment to pass without expressing my sincere appreciation and thanks to you and your team for your work on my behalf.

    I interviewed six agents before choosing your firm to represent me. What distinguished you team from the others was your understanding of the subtleties of the market in this area, your professional construction of the marketing program and, most of all, your ethical approach. You, as team leader, you were invaluable in guiding me through what, for me, was a pretty harrowing experience. You identified early the “right” likely price, got your team working on you customer data base and quickly led the process to a successful conclusion. I could not be happier. Thank you.

    Please convey my gratitude and thanks, too, to each of the members of your team. I liked working with a team of girls, Ania, Marion and Susie. They were great. They really brought added value to the experience

    Ambrose Dunne
  • I engaged Paul to sell my unit. I was very nervous to start off with especially since I came off a very bad experience. After a short meeting with him Instinct told me I could trust him. He was very informative and enthusiastic and I could see that this man had years of experience.

    Above all Paul is a man of integrity and honesty. He got me the result that I wanted in two weeks, and all I can say is that I had wonderful experience with Paul. I would highly recommend him to anyone wishing to sell their property.
    Zambella Plokhoy
  • Thank you for the way you prepared the strategy and delivered the sale of our apartment. Your advice was greatly appreciated and reflected your experience and capability particularly by sticking to your plan. Susanna was always enthusiastic and an able support to you at all times. And you kept the marketing budget under control and came in under it as well. You targeted the right buyers in your marketing campaign which resulted in a short period of time between offer and exchange, which went effortlessly. Thank you for a very pleasant outcome
    Suzie and Gary Penny
  • I have known Paul for quite a number of years as one of the Real Estate Agents in my area. Most of the time that I came across Paul, it was as a ‘prospective purchaser’ while inspecting properties for sale. Paul was always enthusiastic about the property he was ‘showing’, as if it was his own home!

    During my 30 + years in the area I got to know most of the Real Estate Agents. Once my husband and I decided to sell our Family Home, we invited Paul (and a couple of other agents) to give us an assessment of the home and some guidance for the process. Paul got me a pen and paper and methodically guided us through the various steps that we needed to do in preparation for the sale - no stone was left unturned! He organised the appropriate contacts and help as needed and constantly checked that all was going to plan.

    In addition, Paul is a true gentleman and with his vast experience in the Real Estate business, his obvious love of his job and wonderful way of dealing with people, we decided to select Paul as our Selling Agent. Paul had lived in the area for more than 40 years so his local knowledge of the area was important and also a ‘deciding’ factor in his selection. Paul’s Assistant Susanna Ma is extremely sweet, polite (as is Paul) and very efficient. On the rare occasion that Paul was not around, she ensured that all was going smoothly. She was extremely reliable and returned our phone calls immediately. Together as a team, their communication was ‘top class’ particularly when the campaign commenced. They always kept us informed of the latest feedback and information regarding the inspections etc. Between them they gave us confidence and made our experience much less stressful and we now feel part of the Richardson and Wrench Family.

    Carol and John McGruther
  • Thanks Paul Kantor and Susanna Ma for their assistance in the sale of our family home. It was an emotional choice selling the house after seeing it in our family for close to 50 yrs. After interviewing many agents we decided on Paul and Susanna because of their down to earth approach and open communication style.

    An early problem was quickly rectified before the campaign went to air. It is a mark of a good business that deals with these sorts of issues quickly and efficiently, listens to their clients concerns and efficiently rectifies them
    Caryn, Michael & Kevin Wun
  • If you are using Paul Kantor as your Real Estate Agent, you have made an excellent choice. If you are still undecided then please sign up with him. I can assure you that you won’t be disappointed in his results.

    Paul and Susie made a very effective team. We know because we have recently sold and bought through them, to our personal gain.
    Paul is an excellent negotiator and this was especially noticeable when he negotiated on our behalf for our new apartment. He not only had the price reduced but also arranged some inclusions which we wanted.

    Susie was her inimitable self, showing us around and giving us her ideas as a trained Interior Designer.
    Edward Theordore & Virginnia Ross
  • Dear Paul, as you have already received many medals, including Gold for ‘Outstanding Sales Performance’ last year, there is little I can add about your dedication and hard work on behalf of your clients. However, I would like to say that unless one has had the experience of being one of those clients, then there is no way of knowing the difference between you and other agents.

    Your good humour and profound knowledge of the property market are formidable qualities. However I think the most outstanding feature of your technique is your ability to make the vendor feel part of a team. With you and your excellent assistant Susie, I feel inclusive, and well informed about any decisions taken. You were always available to advise and inform and I greatly appreciated your weekly Newsletter. My unit, I believe was a price record breaker in its category and that was entirely due to your complete endeavor and understanding of the Real Estate Industry.

    My sincere thanks to you and Susie for the stupendous work you put into such a successful outcome for me.
    Anne Goodall
  • Thank you for all your help, we are really excited by the result.

    Susie and Paul have done a great job and we are most appreciative

    Kathy & Michael Gleeson
  • It is our pleasure to recommend Paul Kantor as your real estate agent. Go nowhere else! Paul’s professionalism, care and compassion are a beacon for the industry in which he has worked for a number of decades.

    Over these years we have valued his counsel, his friendship, his integrity and his sense of humour.

    There is no one better.
    Greg Levenston & Judith Morrice
  • Thank you for your email and your very kind words. Your effort in achieving $2.7m was indeed outstanding. Shirley and I had that figure in mind from the outset. Our deepest thanks and appreciation.

    Further, we were delighted in the way you handled our sale - it was truly well thought out and your strategy proved you can turn a negative into a real positive. You are a true professional and we would not hesitate any time in the future to use your services and to recommend you to friends and family. I have a drink waiting for you as a L'Chaim for a job extremely well done
    Shirley & Morley Lewis
  • I have known Paul Kantor for over 10 years. In that time he has sold two properties for me. In both case I found him to be the epitome of what a top-line real estate agent should be; highly professional, unbelievably competent in every facet of the business and very honest.

    He really makes it easy and stress free for vendors and achieves excellent results. I can’t imagine there being a better agent for domestic real-estate in the Sydney Eastern Suburbs and I recommend him in the highest possible terms
    Robert Shelly (Lecturer, School of Law, UNSW)
  • Things have been really manic and hectic with me selling my apartment in Darling Point. My friend Colin said to me one day: "Tamara, why can’t you try Paul Kantor, I think that he will help you. He is a very nice man". I hired Paul, and I gave up on other estate agents as they were incompetent .I have been with different agents for nearly two years, can you believe? I had a great time with Paul, who conducted the inspections smoothly and efficiently. For me it was a lot of fun and stress in equal measure. The rapport was good with Paul, and the communications were amazing.

    Paul runs his business very professionally right from the word. My place was sold quickly with interested and appreciated buyers. We had an amazing outcome. Paul also helped me to find a new abode. I must say, that it is inspiring to know such people like Paul Kantor have faith in the business and believe, that it will succeed. If I decide to move in the future, it will be Paul again I will be dealing with. I hope things will be continue well for dear Paul. Huge thanks from Tamara and Bernard Haneman
    Tamara Haneman & Bernard Haneman
  • Thank you so much Paul!!! Despite the stress and seemingly never ending campaign, I am going to miss it!!! I want also to express my gratitude in being always taking or returning my calls!!

    Your professionalism and patience is very impressive!! I would definitely recommend you above everyone I have dealt with!! My sincere thanks.
    Susan Yu
  • I wanted to thank you very much for your support and help throughout the whole process. I felt relieved that you as an old family friend were managing things. I thought you handled everything superbly and although I wasn't at the auction, the evening reflected your skills and experience. It was as though you had written the script for the auction!

    When we are next in Sydney, I'd love to take you and Katie out for a very special meal.
    Haydn Perndt
  • I would like to comment on the sale process & commend you on your structured approach in keeping us up to date & informed on all aspects of the sale. At no time did we feel like we were not sufficiently informed on all aspects of the sale & the regular face to face meetings where you took time to travel to my place of work was greatly appreciated.
    Jason Cavanagh
  • Thank you both for the enormous effort & energy you both applied to our Auction campaign. You kept us thoroughly up to date during the campaign & you both went ‘the extra mile’ to assist us wherever possible.

    Most importantly, your assessment of the likely sale price was accurate which greatly assisted us in planning for our next home. It was a pleasure to work with you
    Samantha & Stuart Sayers
  • As a busy professional I value service providers who deliver good value with the minimum stress and disruption to my schedule.

    Due to your professionalism I had little to do during the sales campaign except to sign off on your recommendations.

    The speed and ease with which you were able to access services and costings for us through your contact network of local trade’s people was also a great time saver.

    I would have no hesitation in recommending you to any friend wanting a very competent and experienced agent in the Eastern Suburbs.
    Les Szekely
  • Both Barbara & I were most impressed at your professionalism & the attention to detail that attended the whole transaction. As a Real Estate Valuer for 43 years, I can truly appreciate the skill, detailed organization that went into the successful sale of our property. It was unsurpassed in our experience of Real Estate transactions in the Eastern Suburbs that we have undertaken, both for ourselves & for our three daughters, over the last 21 years
    John & Barbara Reen
  • Selling a house is not a straightforward and simple process. It is laden with emotion, expectations and many practical requirements Paul’s diligent stewardship of the process, with help from his assistant, helped to ensure our experience was a positive one. His proactiveness & polite manner ensured any opportunities & interest in our property were optimized. His experience & astute reading & sensitive encouragement of potential buyers no doubt helped us get over the line.
    Judy & Anthony Kahn
  • Paul achieved for me a price that exceeded my expectations. His all-round performance as a Real Estate Agent was superior to other Agents who were involved in the marketing of my house over a period.

    Paul Kantor displayed remarkable perseverance & patience. He demonstrated considerable skills in his dealings with many potential buyers. He provided expert advice to me. I had full confidence in him
    Malcolm Dan
  • I wish to pay tribute to the outstanding work of Mr Paul Kantor in action as agent on the sale of my unit. His conscientious attention to detail throughout the transaction has been very commendable.

    A notable feature of his method of doing business is his readiness at all times to keep the client well-informed about the reactions of prospective purchasers as expressed during inspections.

    I am well pleased with what he has done and how he has done it
    Hon T.E.F. Hughes, AO QC
  • I should like to thank you both for the very good result obtained for the sale of my Darling Point property. I am quite sure that without the extra effort you both put into the sales process the price obtained would not have been so high
    Louise Taylor
  • I recently used the services of Paul Kantor and his Co-Agent to sell my house in Victoria Road, Bellevue Hill. Although it was a tense time for my wife and I during the campaign, I found Paul to be reliable, enthusiastic and caring which made the process much easier for both of us. His advice was sound and correct and his determination in the auction room resulted in a great sale at a price which we were pleased to accept. If you want an Agent you can reply on with a high degree of experience and integrity then I suggest you contact Paul without delay.
    Elijah & Marlena Udovitch
  • Paul and Marion were very flexible, motivated, helpful and above all - respectful of our time and energy. They were always on time, took it upon themselves to understand many little details of our house and pros/cons of the area etc. The way they did this really sold the house.

    We have dealt with a few agents in recent times and Paul and Marion were the most professional, hard-working and sincere. They will continue to be successful in this field.
    Steven McMahon & Pernille Fletcher
  • One of the reasons I contacted Paul Kantor about being the agent for the sale of my special apartment at the Harbour’s edge at Milsons Point is the very professional way he dealt with three property transactions he conducted for my Late Mother in the Eastern Suburbs area. The only concern I had in my mind at the time of initial contact was that my property was “northside” and Paul operated mostly in the Eastern Suburbs and the City. I should not have been concerned. The fact that Paul had to travel over the Bridge for openings on the busiest mornings of the week for him was no problem to him what so ever.

    I was particularly pleased with the way Paul kept me informed of any enquiries from interested persons, often more than three times a week. At the time of initial offers from the eventual buyer Paul provided me with his advice on the strategies I should adopt to maximise the sale price in our dealings with the buyer. I would have no hesitation in recommending Paul as the real estate agent for anyone wishing to sell property.
    Geoffrey Wall
  • Paul & Kathleen exceeded our expectations at every turn, focusing on our needs and requests. We always felt totally looked after and at ease with every step of the process. Their professionalism, expertise & marketing ability was exceptional & regular telephone updates following open inspections kept us fully informed about the progress, always expressing their views clearly, honestly & with sincerity. We would be delighted to recommend their services to any prospective clients
    Susan & Louis Nicolas
  • I have been extremely pleased with their professionalism, in particular their efforts to keep me informed, both in writing and by phone, of all developments during the sale period. Above all, I appreciated their empathy & understanding in what was, for me, a stressful time.
    Jan Beck
