Terry and I were very fortunate to have made the choice of Melanie and Richard Patterson of Richardson & Wrench Lindfield to sell our home at 8 Provincial Road, Lindfield. The smooth handling of the selling procedure was due to their experience and professionalism. Melanie was always supportive and helpful and despite the sorrow of selling our beloved home of 51 years, we enjoyed the experience for which we thank both Melanie and Richard.

If you are looking for an overall better result, Melanie and Richard Patterson work as a team and might be the agent for you.
Melanie's key strength is understanding what buyers are after, what will help sell, what detracts and how to manage it. For example, if your property requires repainting, Melanie knows what colours work best.
Richard's key strength is managing the sales approach, and working with potential buyers through to finalising the sale and then settlement.
Both Melanie and Richard are also very easy to work with and trust worthy.
I totally recommend Melanie as an agent. She is experienced, professional, pleasant and practical in her approach. Furthermore, Melanie's team at her agency is also supportive and well-organised , allowing for excellent communication throughout the process leading to sale.

Melanie and Richard Patterson were highly recommended by my solicitor and I also met Melanie at a couple of open house inspections in the area. I mentioned that I would be selling my son's unit in the near future - at no time in the interim did she pressure me to sign up ("When you're ready"). This was a big plus for me and I had no hesitation in appointing the Pattersons as my agents.
The whole process of selling was professional and ethical but comfortable. The staff at R & W were always most friendly and helpful, I was always kept up-to-date with progress, and we achieved a successful and happy outcome.
I would not hesitate to recommend Melanie & Richard Patterson and I would most certainly use their services again in the future.

Selling your house is one of the greatest stresses in life especially when you have been in your home for 24 years. I wanted to sell my property through an agency that knew the area well, acted in a professional manner and looked after there clients. I knew that Melanie ticked all these boxes plus many more. Melanie has just been fantastic from the first time I contacted her right through to the very end. She was always there to offer advice or recommendation from trade people to do jobs to prepare my house for sale , talking me through the process of selling and even sorting out cupboards in my son's room or just coming over to see if I was coping with everything. Nothing was ever any trouble. Having this support and advice certainly helped and gave me great confidence in her ability to get me the best possible price for me house. I couldn't have been happier especially with the price my property sold for. .
Melanie was everything you could hope for in an agent. Nothing was too small - she was able to recommend and organise multiple tradesmen and stylists to prepare our home for auction. If there was anything she was unhappy with she would instantly be on the mission to have it rectified. She was available any time night or day for any questions I had, and was quick to contact my entire family with all updates. Melanie's optimism was infectious, and she always made you feel like she was as invested in your home as you were, while remaining professional. On top of this she had great knowledge of the current market. I would definitely recommend Melanie to anybody looking to sell.

Melanie Patterson was a pleasure to work with during the sale of my property as she provided thoughtful guidance and demonstrated her considerable experience in assisting me to prepare my property for sale. Melanie was always professional but also enthusiastic and caring during the sale process. She always gave her personal attention to any issues that arose and her bright and happy personality made the whole procedure run smoothly. It was a pleasure to deal with Melanie as a Principal and all the other staff at R and W Lindfield.
We asked RandW to visit our house simply to get a second opinion on the value of our house; however Melanie and Greg knocked our socks off with their presentation, so much so that we decided to sign up with them, and we are delighted we did. Both were extremely helpful in advising us how to present the house in the best possible light, and were full of great ideas (as well as having a great group of tradies!) which we took on board. They are also just really nice people, as is the whole team, and as selling a house is such a stressful journey, it sure helps to have a great, caring, hard-working team on your side! Melanie went out of her way to help us on every step of the journey. If you want to sell your property, do it once, do it right, and get this team on your side. Cannot recommend them enough!

Richard and Melanie Patterson sold my Roseville unit in September 2014. I was so pleased that I had chosen them and I wholeheartedly recommend them to prospective vendors. I felt fully at ease and confident in accepting their advice at each stage in the process. Richard is an excellent negotiator, matched by Melanie's interior design skills which greatly improved the presentation and photography. My confidence in them was rewarded by the results.
We found our experience of selling our home, whilst based overseas, extremely positive as a result of the professional attitude and teamwork throughout the process from Richardson and Wrench, Lindfield personnel.
