Phoebe Shepperd
Phoebe Shepperd
Fantastic experience!

From the moment we met Phoebe at an open inspection for another property, she was engaged and genuinely interested in our personal situation and how she may be able to help. At no point during the process was Phoebe pushy which was refreshing. Her communication with us was excellent throughout and she achieved a great result in a compressed timeframe.

We would highly recommend speaking to Phoebe before appointing another agent.

Paul Kantor
Paul Kantor
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.

It is with great pleasure that we provide this reference to Kate.

After nearly two years of off-market 'soft marketing', and seven(!) agents later, we came across Kate who was the agent of another property in our street. We felt immediately comfortable with Kate - her irrepressible energy, market knowledge, extensive network and positive outlook provided us with the confidence we were looking for in 'taking the plunge' and offering our home 'on market'.

Throughout the entire process, we were hugely impressed with Kate's dedication and perseverance. She always maintained her view on the value of our property and the desired end result, and after a 6-week campaign with more than 100 parties inspecting the property, two formal offers came very close to the high end of Kate's initial assessment. Throughout the process, even though it would have been understandable, Kate never once tried to talk us into considering a lower offer. Instead, she encouraged us to be positive and exert patience.

The final result was a fabulous outcome and we are hugely grateful for Kate's initiative
and leadership of the sales process.

Thank you Kate - you went 'above and beyond'!

As a solicitor with 30 years practice I sing Phoebe Shepperd’s praises.

Her amazing assistance with this complex sale of an estate property was extremely impressive accompanied with a confident yet personal approach. I was even more impressed with how she took charge of the purchasers leaving them all wanting to bid higher.

Phoebe always kept the vendor and solicitor diligently informed of the progress with inspections, inquiries and was always ready to make herself available to show the property to prospective purchasers; no task or request too great.

Thank you for your care and attention like no other. I look forward to a long relationship with you.

Pleasure to deal with and we got a fabulous result!

Both Michael Dunn and Veronika Brinkmann were fantastic throughout the whole process, their attention to detail on marketing and preparation advice for our property was much appreciated as well as their communication in keeping us up to date.

There were no surprises come auction day and we felt that their honesty with us though the sales period helped shaped the campaign perfectly.

Should they not have guided us as they did we may not have achieved the same fabulous result.

Thank you again and both Marion and I would have no hesitation in recommending them to family and friends in the future.

Veronika went above & beyond to facilitate the sale of our Penthouse and was a delight to work with.

We always felt like we knew exactly where we were every step of the auction campaign - no chasing for updates or feeling left out of the process. Her openness to fit into prospective buyers busy schedules was impressive to say the least.

If you want to cut to the chase with an honest, professional agent - Veronika's the one you've been looking for!

Brilliant Real Estate Experience

This letter is to thank you and your team, Veronika, Kate and Leah for the outstanding service you provided to me and the rest of my family in marketing and selling our old family home (held in the same family and never on the market since 1920) following the death of our parents. It cannot ever be easy getting a “deceased estate” property into the best possible condition for sale, but with your help and guidance the old house certainly did look its best over the weeks leading up to the Auction.

Now, nearly three months later, settlement has been completed and our family is very happy with the result. The professionalism, efficiency and facilitation of the process shown by everyone on your team made this emotionally traumatic event much easier for all our family members who were involved in the sale of the house.

The photography, advertising, open house inspections (and private inspections), the video of the property, the auction, and all the paperwork were handled by you and your team expeditiously and made us feel the marketing and sale of our family home has been entrusted to good hands.

So thank you all for a superlative effort. My four siblings and I all appreciate everything you did for us and we are very happy to recommend your services to any of our friends who need Real Estate help.

This is just to thank you for the outstanding service and efficient way Richardson and Wrench Double Bay (Veronika and Robynne) handled my sale in Retford Hall.

Your database of clients was extensive and this enabled us not to have to go to auction. You were always early for the open inspections. Your knowledge of the market was excellent and sale conditions were handled thoroughly.

Thank you all for a superb effort. I will happily recommend your services to any further sellers and will be using you in the future.

I write about the recent sale of my residence in Darling Point. Faced with the decision as to which real estate agent to use, a number of my friends had recently been in the same situation. Richardson and Wrench seem to be the most frequently chosen under its Principal, Michael Dunn.

Due to their professional, flexible and personable approach the decision was made very simply. It turned out to be a wise choice and I could not be more satisfied with the service provided and the competence and pleasant personalities of all staff involved.

The result was excellent with the sale meeting the pre-auction estimate. We did not have to go to Auction having a private pre-auction sale negotiated.

The property was purchased by a previous client of Richardson & Wrench, who were contacted through their existing database during the marketing period. I could not give a higher recommendation to both Michael Dunn and Veronika Brinkmann for their professionalism, attention to detail and expertise in their field.

Solid Agent with exceptional communication skills!

Veronika was the Agent on the apartment I recently purchased and I found her to be a solid and trustworthy Agent throughout the entire sale process.

Her communication skills were exceptional and I would have no hesitation recommending Veronika for any future apartment sale. Her calm and rational approach made a very big decision a lot less stressful, so thank you Veronika!

R&W (James Dunn) were appointed to act on behalf of multiple vendors for the sale of a unit in Woollahra. The expereince and the result was very positive with the property being sold at auction for well in excess of the reserve.

While R&W had previously leased the property, as a recently appointed executor, I had no prior experience in dealing with them. They made the sale easy: arranging for some minor repairs, the styling of the vacant unit and introducing us to suitable lawyers. We had sensible discussions around the reserve and they dealt with all stakeholders fairly in a polite and courteous manner

Professional Agent!

I was referred to James by an associate and from the first contact he was totally professional in his approach to all aspects throughout the sale. He listened and came fully prepared after doing his research and provided supporting information about the market trends and expectations.

His advice and suggestions are based on fact, research and experience which as a vendor gave me a great deal of confidence in the decisions I had to make.

The best judgement to any review is when asked " would you use him again?" My answer is Yes without hesitation.

James Dunn: your perfect property partner

I sold my apartment in Double Bay with the help of James and his team. This was my first-ever property sale, and complicated by the fact that I live overseas and had to manage the process remotely.

It was incredibly reassuring to have James' knowledge and experience supporting every step of the process. The sales campaign was targeted to perfection and delivered an auction result 30% higher than estimated.

I'd love to buy another property in the area just so that James could help me sell that too :-)

5 Star Experience!

James is an extremely accomplished salesman. He is polite, a hard worker and totally committed to his vendor. My property was not a run of the mill property, James worked extremely hard and produced a great result.

James would always be my go to choice of agent for buying or selling. He really delivered a stress free sale.

Extremely helpful!

I had the pleasure of working with James and his team for the first time during the sale of my property in Rose Bay in 2017, and I would not hesitate to recommend him to others.

James is mature beyond his years, presents himself with confidence, possesses great people skills,and he has a warm wit, which is sometimes needed when selling property. He also demonstrates good intelligence about the market and property values. He is honest, he communicates clearly, and he cares about his clients and will go the extra mile to make sure his clients are happy.

James impressed me with his enthusiasm, his integrity and his commitment to work hard on my behalf. He was also easy to deal with and I'm sure he's on the way to becoming one of the finest agents of Richardson and Wrench in Australia.

I can not speak highly enough of the service we received from Michael and Veronika.

We were away attending our daughter's wedding the week before our marketing campaign began. They organised different trades people to come and get the property looking perfect. We were so impressed with their commitment and assistance.

Their guidance and advice helped make what can be a very stressful and emotional experience as smooth and stress free as possible. I am so grateful we chose Michael and Veronika to advise us through the selling experience. I trusted them implicitly and highly recommend them both.

She should write a book on how to be an agent.

Not only did Phoebe make the entire experience not only pleasant but dare I say enjoyable, she smashed expectations when it came to getting a result.

Put simply if you are looking to sell this legend is the person to do it for you.

Thank you so much!

Kate was our appointed Agent for the sale of our investment property in Double Bay. It was without hesitation that we appointed her, having not interviewed any other agents, as we knew that she was the agent who was going to work the hardest to achieve the best possible result for us.

Through her hard work, professionalism and enthusiasm and with her honest and reliable nature, Kate achieved a result far beyond our wildest expectations at auction, selling under the hammer for $520,000 above our reserve price.

Kate’s expert advice and input regarding pre-sale renovations and her keen eye for what buyers were looking for coupled with the excellent relationships that she built with all 25 contract holders culminated towards reaching a record sales result for the building.

We would recommend Kate to anyone looking to sell either their home or investment property as we truly believe she is the best agent working in the East at the moment.

Truly you are a credit to your profession.

Never before have I been so struck by a professional’s dedication in managing the sale of a property. You worked around the clock, seven days a week, managing a number of difficult prospective buyers for us. You contacted me several times a day to keep me up to date. You’re clearly very busy but you always made time. Your expertise in negotiating brought mum a price that exceeded expectations. Your positive outlook helped us surmount obstacle after obstacle in what turned out to be a very tricky sale. Your courtesy and kindness made you a pleasure to deal with in every interaction. When the phone rang I was always pleased when it was you. Your sensitivity to my mum’s special circumstances at her stage of life was greatly appreciated. At every point you were insistent that her needs and wishes were paramount. And what serendipity that mum’s next purchase should have been through your firm as well.

I will always remember this as a very positive experience despite it being during a very hard period with mum. I hope we will remain not only in touch but also friends.

Our experience with James and his team was positive in every aspect. We found James pleasant to deal with and constantly available to answer questions and address concerns.

James and his team regularly updated us with progress reports and offered excellent strategy advice.

James went above and beyond our expectations, often working hard for us outside of regular business hours. I would not hesitate to recommend James and his team.

Property sale 1 of 2

This property was part of a deceased estate and there were several issues to be resolved before it could be sold.

James and his staff were always ready to assist in any way they could to resolve the issues and to ensure that the best price was achieved.

Totally professional and trustworthy organisation!
Highly recommended.

Property sale 2 of 2

This property was part of a deceased estate and James advised the executor the best way to approach the sale of this property. We were extremely satisfied with the advice and assistance James gave us leading up to the auction and we are very happy with the result achieved.

James Dunn is a thorough gentleman. No problem was too large and it was a pleasure to have James and the staff of Richardson and Wrench Double Bay acting on our behalf. We were kept fully informed during the entire process.

I have dealt with James Dunn for two different properties (buying and selling my properties) and can genuinely say that he has done an incredible job for me on both counts.

To whom it may concern, I have been buying and selling properties for over 35 years and I believe that James Dunn is the most knowledgeable and professional agent I have ever dealt with to date and I have no issue with James using me as a personal reference. I wish James every success for the future.

I used James Dunn to sell an apartment in Oxford St, Darlinghurst in early November. As it was part of my father’s estate, he was very caring and gave me good advice at each step. He continually updated me on developments. When the existing tenant became difficult, James went to see him to sit down and chat; he got to the bottom of the problem and proposed a solution that everybody was happy with. Before the Auction James was very helpful with bidders’ last minute contract change advice, at the auction we had 6 bidders and he worked hard to get a result well above the reserve.

I was so pleased that I again used James for a second property that I was going to sell later next year and moved the second property forward to mid-December. I have found James to be very accommodating. He is communicative and understanding with a “nothing is a problem attitude”. He definitely puts in extra effort and I can't recommend him highly enough.

Where do I start? I wrote a review about Phoebe's wonderful performance buying from her ... now I have just had an even better experience selling through her . She is amazing!

Phoebe applied so much effort, knowledge, enthusiasm and diligence as our agent in selling our property, in what turned out to be not just a very favourable result, but was extremely stress free. Now how often does that happen?

I would highly recommend Phoebe to anyone considering either buying or selling - she's the go too girl!

From the start, it was obvious that Kate was more than “just a real estate agent”. She immediately saw the potential of transforming our tired old Californian bungalow into a home young families would be proud to own and move into straightaway. Using her extensive knowledge of the current real estate market and home design trends, she organised painters, tilers, plumbers, floor sanders, etc and together we set about creating a beautiful Hamptons style mansion.

Kate was on site almost every day helping to choose paint colours, tiles, taps, marble, door fittings and curtains, even travelling with me many times to suppliers in our efforts to keep prices within budget. The end result amazed our family and friends and the house sold before auction for a price well above original expectations.

A note to express my tremendous gratitude and appreciation for everything you did to achieve such a successful outcome for my sale.

The time and effort you put into what was not an easy project were really extraordinary. You were always there at the end of the phone, and always ready with calm advice. And during the negotiating stage, you never gave up and so we ended up with a fantastic result. What I specially appreciated was that you unfailingly put the interests of the vendor first.

I would have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone contemplating selling a property.

What a refreshing and pleasant experience it was having our home sold by Kate!! After buying and selling a number of properties this was by far the best and most enjoyable experience we have had.

After talking with other agents there was no doubt that Kate was the Agent we wanted to sell our property. Her honesty, integrity and commitment to go the extra mile were demonstrated before, during and after the sale process.

Kate’s network, knowledge of the area and street coupled with her genuine care & desire to get us the best price saw us sell our property 2 weeks before Auction, which we were thrilled with!!

I would highly recommend Kate to anyone looking to sell in the area. Keep up the Great work.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your valued assistance and patience with us in our recent purchase of the property in Beresford Rd.

While we obviously may be somewhat bias due to our success in the purchase we felt that your handling of the sale showed the utmost professionalism with respect to the interest of the vendor but at the same time a most personable and approachable attitude to us purchaser. We felt that we were able to share our purchasing goals with you in an honest and trust worthy environment.

We have had dealings with many real estate organisations over the years and would have to say that our experience with yourself and your company Richardson & Wrench at Double Bay has been second to none.

We would be very happy for you to share this thankful opinion with other prospective clients and wish you every success in the future.

Thank you Kate for all your help.

My wife and I have known James Dunn for over 3 years and recently he sold our property in Paddington for a strong price. James sold us the property 3 years earlier so we have had the benefit of observing him on both the buying and selling side of a transaction.

Through both processes - buying and selling, we found James to be honest and diligent and his advice and assistance invaluable throughout. It’s a rare thing for an agent to be able to provide balanced and insightful advice to all parties involved. It is a real credit to James communication skills and integrity.

We wish James every success and expect to deal with him again

We would like to acknowledge the fabulous experience we have had in dealing with James in the recent sale of our apartment in Woollahra. We believe that their commitment and dedication to us as clients was incredible. Their focus on end result was beyond question and their motivating advice, detailed reporting and patient and calm attitude during the process was highly appreciated, especially for newbies to the real estate game like us. We truly wouldn't have been able to do it without them.

From the onset we had confidence we were in the right hands and have no hesitation in recommending either or both as well as the dedicated sales and administration team behind them to others who value professionalism, honesty and integrity. Everything along the process was done with urgency and smile. Hugely professional whilst maintaining a friendly relationship! Thank you!

James Dunn`s qualities include some not always found in members of his profession. He never oversells and is extremely patient. He is realistic in assessing possibilities and always ready to discuss alternatives. He is very accessible often at unsocial hours and rapid to respond. He is sensitive to nuances in his interpersonal relationships.

All in all I cannot recommend him too highly.

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.

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

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.

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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.

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

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

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

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.

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

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

To say we were pleased with the auction result achieved by Phoebe and Marion would be an understatement.

From the initial expert marketing advice on presentation, sales method and timing through to the auction itself we were very impressed with their effort and professionalism. Throughout the sales campaign itself we were kept fully up to date with progress and feedback from potential buyers.

We would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Phoebe and Marion to anybody considering selling their property.

I bought my apartment in Darling Point at Auction and Phoebe was the listing Agent for it.

Originally from Hobart she has a warmth and genuineness that is not seen in the Eastern Suburbs pretty much anywhere - let alone in the real estate game. She was open, friendly, crystal clear, and up front with what she knew and what she didn't - and there haven't been any surprises since moving in that I wasn't aware of prior to buying.

She has maintained contact and provided updates of properties that bear some relation to mine (good and bad) to give a clear indication of what exactly I'd purchased and how its value was tracking. She's a real person in a business where talk is cheap. I'd buy from her again.

Not your average agent!

Phoebe was an absolute pleasure to deal with when purchasing our property. She accommodated all of our needs including organising numerous pre-settlement inspections, returning our 100 phone calls & questions regarding the property. She made the whole process as easy as it could have been.

Thanks for your help Phoebe, it didn't go unnoticed!

We couldn't recommend Phoebe highly enough. Throughout the process of purchasing our property, Phoebe provided excellent service. The open house at the very beginning was run with care and consideration and from then she had us very interested, in an area, we hadn't previously considered. Phoebe's market knowledge, professionalism, and warm nature were genuine factors that ultimately contributed to our purchasing 5 Grosvenor Street. We always felt that she was very fair to both parties (seller and us as buyers) and she manages to find a great balance between personal attention and professionalism.

After almost a year of open houses, dealing with estate agents and the competitive Sydney property market Phoebe was a breath of fresh air. We will stay in touch with Phoebe and consider her first if we were ever to sell our property.

I have had the pleasure of dealing with Phoebe Shepperd in the purchase of my unit at Darling Point.

Phoebe, working for the vendor managed to achieve a wonderful and win win result both for her client and for me. I placed my trust in her to also organise a bidder at the auction for me and she won my unwavering support for her because of the integrity and loyalty she employed for both of us throughout the process achieving a wonderful result for both sides.

I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Phoebe Shepperd to anyone as the most thoroughly honest and professional real estate agent I have met throughout my 14 years of property investing purchases in 3 states.

Jonathan and I want to thank you for the excellent management of the sale of our home. You took us from not 'really being on the market' by qualifying an appropriate buyer, bringing them to our home and finalising a deal in a short space of time. Your efficiency, attention to detail and patience is highly commendable and you never let us down in the process. You went beyond the call of duty whilst we were overseas, organising various trades people (including gaining comparative prices) to satisfy the purchaser as well as our needs.

It has been delightful dealing with you through this rather challenging process and deadlines of the purchaser as well as satisfying council needs.

We have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone who is looking for an agent who is engaged, delightful and incredibly hard working.

Selling a family home is an extremely emotional transaction, requiring compassionate and authentic relationships with your choice of agency.

Our successful sale of Milroy Avenue,with Richardson and Wrench, Double Bay, demonstrated the perfect transaction and right choice of agent.

The ability to read any market and place our property accordingly, was an enormous plus as we entered the sales campaign, Michael Dunn and Phoebe Shepperd were always available, eager to provide "feed back" and genuinely worked hard for our result.

The greatest asset in any business, is relationships, returning to an agency that you see as "your family agent"……thank you both for care and attention to detail like no other.

We look forward to a long relationship with you both.

We first met Phoebe a few years ago when viewing a property listing she had in Vaucluse. While the home ended up not being right for us, Phoebe was very patient in showing us through the home several times. Phoebe checked in with us very few months in the ensuing time, keeping us up to date with listings we may be interested in. When the call came a few months ago that Phoebe thought she had the perfect home for us, she was right. During the buying process she was always available, flexible and accommodating. There were many late night and weekend calls and meetings, with contracts being exchanged at 9pm on a Saturday night! At all times Phoebe was positive yet not pushy and completely earned our trust.

It was thus an easy decision to use the “Phoebe Shepperd and Michael Dunn” partnership to sell our home in Rose Bay. What a great team! Everything was well planned, we were kept completely up to date and were well advised. The marketing was excellent and the attendance at our open homes was incredible. We took their advice and went to auction with our home rather than taking offers beforehand – that was the right decision, achieving us a price way beyond our reserve. We have been singing Phoebe’s praises to anyone who will listen and feel very confident in giving her a thorough recommendation if you are considering selling your property. We are happy to be contacted for further information.

Phoebe has to be one of R&W best assets.

From our first encounter at inspection Phoebe engaged us with ease, and was helpful but not pushy. If there was something she couldn’t answer, she took the time to follow up and provide us with a prompt response. She accommodated our needs and was available to talk with us late at night after we put the kids to bed. Phoebe’s genuine nature made us feel comfortable and nothing we asked or arranged for ever felt like an impost.

On auction day, Phoebe demonstrated her skilful ability in getting the best outcome from us as the buyer, again without being too pushy. The week that followed was one of intense negotiations in which Phoebe worked incredibly hard in bridging the divide, by communicating effectively and transparently to close the deal.

We were so impressed with Phoebe throughout the journey that we engaged her to sell our property. She did an excellent job in guiding us through that process and kept us on track, as well as provided many relevant contacts to get our property ready for sale. We sold our property above market expectation. Phoebe Shepperd is a consummate professional in residential sales and we recommend her without reservation.

We recently purchased a family home through Phoebe Shepperd. Phoebe is an energetic, passionate realtor who was always ready to assist us - whether that was showing us through the property multiple times, answering queries, assisting with contacts and leads or offering advice.

I always felt that Phoebe was looking after both her client and us, and her integrity and enthusiasm for her work is evident. I believe she will only continue to grow as a presence in Sydney property.

We recently purchased an apartment through R&W Double Bay and had the pleasure of dealing with Phoebe Shepperd. We found her to be friendly and obliging throughout the pre purchase stage, getting back to us promptly, whenever we enquired about something.

In the period between exchange of contracts through to settlement, Phoebe was always more than happy to arrange access to the apartment for us, no matter how many times we made this request of her and was always a pleasure to deal with. She has a wonderful personality and was always upbeat and smiling. Nothing was too much effort for her.

Phoebe would be our choice of agent in the future.

We worked with Phoebe Shepperd whom we found to be highly professional, very attentive and not full of herself. She was highly communicative and we appreciated her wisdom in all aspects of marketing and presentation.
She presented the property with the care and attention, as if her own on every inspection and achieved a sale at a very good price.

Thank you for a great job, Phoebe.

At the end of last year we decided that it was time to sell our Kensington home of 11 years. Our 3 kids had grown up there so it was quite a big decision. Phoebe and James were very reassuring and helpful from the word go. Phoebe advised us how to get the property in the best shape for inspection and always gave us prompt feedback from prospective buyers. She was always available either on the phone or in person. When an offer was made prior to auction Phoebe and James guided us through the process to a successful outcome. They were both very understanding and responsive and a pleasure to deal with.

This letter is to thank you and your team, Veronika, Kate and Leah for the outstanding service you provided to me and the rest of my family in marketing and selling our old family home (held in the same family and never on the market since 1920) following the death of our parents. It cannot ever be easy getting a “deceased estate” property into the best possible condition for sale, but with your help and guidance the old house certainly did look its best over the weeks leading up to the Auction in November 2015.

Now, nearly three months later, settlement has been completed and our family is very happy with the result. The professionalism, efficiency and facilitation of the process shown by everyone on your team made this emotionally traumatic event much easier for all our family members who were involved in the sale of the house.

The photography, advertising, open house inspections (and private inspections), the video of the property, the auction, and all the paperwork were handled by you and your team expeditiously and made us feel the marketing and sale of our family home has been entrusted to good hands.

So thank you all for a superlative effort. My four siblings and I all appreciate everything you did for us and we are very happy to recommend your services to any of our friends who need Real Estate help.

Being our first sale and of a property; a Darling Point apartment, which had been a genuine residence and home for 10 years the decision to sell was daunting alone and the process overwhelming.
We reviewed a number of local Estate agents, R & W shone through as our preferred choice. At that time we had not fully understood the gravity and science of the sale process. As we embarked into the sale we found we were in even more expert hands than we knew existed. Robynne and Jack of R&W professionally and precisely; with a full understanding of our emotional attachment to the property, guided us though the sale from beginning to an enormously successful auction. From the first opening house to the very last phases of the sale we were kept completely informed of every aspect; from potential buyers to movement in the housing market, it was all extensively covered in our weekly meetings and weekly reports
My partner and I could not have been more impressed with absolute service and expertise that R&W delivered at every stage across the entire sale process. We knew we were in expert hands and could not speak more highly of our experience with R&W.

We could not have asked for a more committed team to work on the sale . Your professionalism and never ending efforts have given us a great auction result. Without the efforts you both made tonight we may not have achieved such a great final outcome.

As first time home owners, selling was something that we hadn't yet been through yet. Phoebe was fantastic at informing us, makings feel in control and in the loop with the sale of our home. Phoebe was not only very professional but extremely friendly and warm, never letting us feel the pressure and allowed us to guiding us with decisions but making us feel comfortable with every decision we made. I felt she went above and beyond, this made selling our home a great experience, which was also very successful.

I do believe we received a fair amount for the house, even though it was not quite what we wanted – but you were open about that in our review sessions. I felt you listened to my requests and that you did everything to make the selling process as easy as possible.

I certainly would recommend you to anyone who asks as I felt you did everything above board and always with your clients in mind.

When we saw this most amazing Arts and Crafts era gem of a house, it sold itself to us. But there was one person, in particular, who took as much stress out of the auction and buying process as is ever possible with these things. From the first time we viewed the property, less than a week before the auction, until moving in three months later, Phoebe Shepperd from Richardson and Wrench Double Bay was a constant. She was forever available and willing to help, from inspection reports and auction tactics to contract negotiations and pre-settlement planning. Phoebe struck us as a refreshingly genuine individual with a real desire to make sure all parties were happy with the outcome. We cannot recommend Phoebe highly enough and would certainly have no hesitation in employing her services again in the future.

Phoebe came on a journey with us and experienced the highs and lows that life can throw at a family. The marketing campaign went smoothly with plenty of interest and solid bidders for the auction. Then just days before the auction we had a personal crisis which nearly forced a cancellation. The Richardson & Wrench team did every thing they could to facilitate and accommodate our needs during a very stressful situation. Suffice to say that with their caring professionalism the auction went ahead, and we sold the house. Our experience with our agent was one of professionalism, but with a sincere and personal touch. We would highly recommend Phoebe to anyone considering selling their property.

I recently engaged Phoebe Shepperd of Richardson and Wrench Double Bay, as our selling agent for a possible sale of a flat, 19G, 3 Darling Point Rd, Darling Point , which had been for the past 18 years held by my sister and myself as a joint investment property.
This flat, although well maintained and occupied by successive long term tenants e.g the most recent from 2006 to end May 2015, had not been renovated for many years.
Our flat, was the third of similar unrestored G type flats in the building to come onto the market in the first quarter of 2015, the second 17G , sold at auction by R&W a month or so earlier.
In the buoyant property market, I contracted with R &W and granted Phoebe a limited opportunity sell our flat, being initially a10 day window (with no marketing budget) which was subsequently extended some additional weeks to embrace the potential final purchaser.
Throughout the period Phoebe, was
- determined and diligent in pursuance of the sale.
- a very active communicator between myself, the tenant and the purchaser.
- helpful in liaising between the respective solicitors.
- all administration matters from pre sale thru to post settlement were dealt with very smoothly efficiently.
- most important was the excellent result attained ; in that the price level she negotiated was substantially above my own expectations.
In summary, throughout the short time that I have known and have had dealings with Phoebe, she has presented herself as a very friendly and attractive person who has acted acted at all times most professionally.
I have no hesitation recommending Phoebe to anyone seeking in the future her real estate services.

“Thanks Paul Kantor for your 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 because of his 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.”

He is a charming and obliging agent to work with, always cheery and inclusive, ensuring that as a vendor I was made to feel part of the team.
This is most helpful at what can be an emotional and stressful time.

The sale of my apartment was completed in less than 10 days and I am thrilled with the price achieved. I can't speak highly enough of the service which I received from Robynne and her team. They made themselves available to show the apartment to buyers at any time requested outside the advertised open times, even going the extra mile to ensure the apartment was in good order as I was overseas and at all times acted with integrity and in a professional manner. I would have no hesitation in recommending Robynne to anyone requiring professional real estate services.

Finding and buying the right place to live can be a stressful experience. It takes someone of exceptional skill and knowledge to make the process as smooth as possible. In our case, Phoebe Shepperd from R&W Double Bay, proved to be just the right person. She was always courteous, genuine and helpful, never failing to make enquiries on our behalf and responding quickly. She worked hard to bring us and the vendor together to make a sale with which we were both happy. We were delighted with the outcome and would recommend Phoebe to anyone who wants to sell or buy their next home.

I was absolutely amazed by the service I received from Robynne Arnouts of Richardson & Wrench Double Bay. I called Robynne on a Wednesday and by the Friday she had potential buyers already viewing my property; I had an outstanding offer by Monday afternoon. The contracts were exchanged at the end of that week. I have never experienced the pleasure of such an efficient and professional service before. My personal outgoings were kept to a minimum, particularly as there were no advertising; Robynne new her clients so well she knew who the property would suit and they were ready to buy. Robynne ensured Iwas updated on the process at all times, she was such a pleasure to deal with, she made what is usually a lengthy and stressful process feel like a walk in the park I simply cannot thank her enough!

We had a really wonderful and easy experience in selling our house off-market with Phoebe Shepperd. She is the ultimate professional and completely open about the whole process. Nothing was a problem for her, from our barrage of questions, to flexibility in juggling opens and viewings with the demands of our little kids. Her advice, network and support were second to none. Best of all we sold our house after just 2 weeks for the price we wanted! We would be thrilled to recommend Phoebe to anyone who would like to sell their home with a friendly, professional and effective agent.

We would like briefly acknowledge the quality of services provided by Richardson & Wrench Double Bay for the sale of our house in Bondi Junction in May 2012. The work was completed by James Dunn and Robynne Arnouts. Both James and Robynne provided their services in a manner that was of the highest quality and was completed with impeccable professionalism and integrity. Importantly, the sale of our house was successful in a very uncertain and challenging market which undoubtedly highlights their capabilities. We would most certainly use James and Robynne again and recommend Richardson & Wrench Double Bay to anyone looking to sell in the Eastern Suburbs of Sydney.

We wish to acknowledge the excellent, high level service we received from Michael Dunn in the sale of our house. After each open house both my husband & myself both received feedback phone calls and were kept informed and up to date throughout the campaign until Auction when we sold our home. It was an absolute pleasure to deal with you, the skills that you possess are of notable credit.

I want to thank James Dunn for producing an outstanding result on the recent sale of my apartment in Cook Road, Centennial Park. James worked effectively to make both me as the seller, and our potential buyers comfortable and informed throughout the sale process. I was not only very happy with the sale price, but I have a lasting memory of James taking the time to make each potential purchaser on the auction night feel relaxed and listened to. James genuinely cares about doing the best he can for everybody involved, and I think it is this genuine approach that resulted in such a great sale. I look forward to having him assist me purchase a new home in the future.

It is my pleasure to recommend James Dunn. He has recently sold my mothers unit in Rose Bay.
From the start James was always generous with his time, advice, help and reassurance which made the whole procedure of preparing, presenting and selling my elderly mothers unit so much easier.
Together with James, my family and I were able to make the process a profound and pleasurable experience doing justice to the unit, my mother, myself and my family. James acted with generosity of spirit and integrity for myself and prospective buyers at all times and kept us up to date with the latest information after all open days and inspections.
We were amazed and delighted at the result of the auction and I would like to thank all at Richardson and Wrench who supported us so warmly through our process.
And to James a special thank you for the work you do with the Starlight Foundation. My grandson and family received this wonderful gift of a family holiday providing much needed joy, hope and happiness after a stressful and traumatic year last year.

I am writing to you to express my sincere thanks and gratitude with regards to the sale of our property which was nothing less than exceptional. James communication about the marketing, upcoming auction and potential buyers was outstanding both in its quality and quantity. Your enthusiasm left me in no doubt that every avenue had been pursued to achieve a positive outcome. I felt, as a vendor, totally confident going into the auction that we would achieve the desired result given the backing of both James and your agency and the professionalism of all involved. I have no hesitations in recommending both James and your agency to prospective vendors and buyers.

James Dunn, from Richardson & Wrench, recently handled the sale of my apartment in Double Bay. From the very first time I met James, I found him to be very personable and caring while maintaining his professionalism. As a widow, aged seventy, attending bereavement counselling following the death of my husband, James was a tower of strength at such a difficult time. His advice to auction my apartment was the right advice, although I was anxious, having never even attended an auction. I believe that it was James handling of the sale of my apartment, and his regular contact with the people interested in buying it, that helped my apartment reach a price $50,000 above the reserve, and $30,000 above what I had hoped for. If you are looking to sell and/or buy any property, I highly recommend James to you.

I am writing on behalf of my wife and I to thank you for the fantastic job you did in securing the sale of our apartment in Bellevue Hill. I was most impressed that you were able to arrange a first inspection with only 2 days notice and the enthusiasm and professionalism with which you promoted our property throughout the course of the campaign was no doubt the key to our success on the evening of the auction. I have nothing but praise for the way in which you approached each step of the marketing campaign. Your knowledge of the industry, together with your refined negotiating skills and honest and trustworthy approach is commendable and an asset to Richardson & Wrench Double Bay. I would highly recommend your services.
