Interviewing Melanie and Richard Patterson for the sale of my late mother's unit, I was extremely impressed by their combination of warmth, market knowledge and professionalism. They totally vindicated my decision to engage R&W Lindfield and the faith I had placed in them. I was extremely happy with the sale price they achieved amidst the media's doom and gloom stories of a falling market. I was also gratified by the sale being negotiated after only 15 days on the market and prior to auction. Always upbeat, they did all this without any of the hard sell I've encountered in the past and I was never made to feel I needed to adjust my price expectations. The R&W office team - Alex and Kate - were a joy to work with and nothing was too much trouble. The result was a beautifully presented apartment and a smooth sale. I couldn't recommend the team more highly!

Richard was an absolute delight to work with. His knowledge of the history of the property and the Lindfield area generally was reassuring and certainly was a big factor in the sale of the property. Richard’s caring manner and generous personality made him very easy to work with and made me feel looked after through the whole selling process. Thanks Richard.

Our association with Richard, his wife Melanie, daughter Millie, and staff Monique and Alex is longstanding. We have dealt with Richardson and Wrench at Lindfield for nearly ten years, firstly as managing agents of our rental property, then as agents for the sale of that property. They are committed to providing a professional service and communicate in a timely way. In relation to the sale, we appreciated their advice about the way the unit should be presented, the timeline for auction and advertising. The team was pro-active and reliable at every stage. We had a sense that the whole agency was committed to our success and we loved the personal nature of their approach. We really do think that Richard made the difference when it came to achieving a sale at auction. His long experience, sincerity, and regard within the local community was apparent in all our dealings with him. Even in this uncertain market, our experience was a good one. We highly recommend Richard Patterson and his team at Richardson and Wrench Lindfield.

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.

Prior to choosing R&W Lindfield we interviewed several agents and felt R&W Lindfield’s Richard and Melanie Patterson would do the best job for us.
Richard has a deep understanding of the property market, he is an excellent communicator, honest, reliable ad hard working with a focus of achieving the best outcomes. RW contacts with the media led to newspaper articles and unexcepted publicity.
Richard kept us informed at every step of the way throughout the campaign and we could not recommend him and team at R&W Lindfield more highly.

They also have a very very helpful team that took care of so much for us.

Both me and my husband really appreciate Richard's honesty and experiences during the sales of our apartment recently. Both Richard and Jessica have given their best effort selling our apartment in the current slow market. Their strategies and negotiations have resulted in our apartment being sold at the best market price in comparisons to our competitors who we see are still struggling to sell their properties to this date.
We highly recommend Richard and his team and will definitely return to them for properties queries around Lindfield, Killara area.

I found Richard in particular and Melanie to be very knowledgeable regarding what was required to sell my unit. Richard communicated regularly, his market knowledge of what was achievable, was realised. Richard was always willing to assist and answer my questions and definately went out of his way, on my behalf, to finalise the sale. I found staff member Alex kept in touch and followed through with the smaller details. I have no hesitation in recommending Richardson and Wrench Lindfield to others wishing to sell or buy in the area. My association, in various ways, over more than 15 years with the Agency has been a pleasant, courteous and rewarding experience.

We bought the house from Richard 14 years earlier and had a great service from him then. When looking to sell the house Richard gave us the same confidence and experience that he demonstrated previously.

Selling your house is one of the greatest stresses in life. I knew that I wanted to find an agent that knew my local area well, was professional and looked after their clients. Richard more than ticked all these boxes for me. I have lived in my home for over 24 years and have seen Richard sell many properties in the area. He has been in the real estate industry for many years and this is the sort of expertise and professionalism I was looking for. When I first contacted Richard I liked the way he conducts his business which is, face to face. He made me feel at ease and was able to explain the whole selling process to me. Nothing was ever any trouble from helping me to find trades people to do some work I needed to do on my house to even putting up a new resuscitation sign in my pool area or being there to meet trades people if I couldn't be there. Richard spent ages with me to talk me through the process of whether to accept an early offer on my house or continue to auction by clearly explaining the for's and against in dong this. Richard made me feel that I was the only client and nothing was ever a problem.

Selling my family home was a very emotional and stressful time for me, and it was incredibly important that I trusted my agent. Richard was not only trustworthy, but knowledgable and incredibly patient and detailed when explaining the selling process. While optimistic he was also diligent with ensuring that my family and I had a realistic understanding of the current market and our position within it. I would definitely recommend Richard to anybody looking to sell.

Richard provided sound professional and considered advice prior to and during the sale process. He reported promptly to me after each open house and was always available to answer any questions. Richard kept me fully informed on the management and marketing of the property and I was very pleased with the sale price achieved prior to auction. I found Richard courteous and very pleasant to deal with during what can be a stressful experience. Richard ‘s impressive professional and personal qualities as principal of R and W Lindfield are also demonstrated by all other staff members with whom I came into contact from the receptionist to the photographer and especially Alex who was extremely thorough and helpful. It was a pleasure to deal with R and W Lindfield and I am happy to recommend them to anyone thinking of selling in the area.

Thanks very much to Richard, Melanie and Alex from the R&W Lindfield Sales team. I was very happy with the whole experience, which was excellent from start to finish, including the advice I was given to prepare my house for sale, the communications throughout the sale process, and the final negotiations on the sale price. This was even more important as I live overseas and the process was managed without me being there. Thanks to everyone !

Richard is an experienced and knowledgeable agent and the results that he achieved in marketing and auctioning this property are proof of his credentials! Richard, as principal, and his colleague, Jessica were delightful to work with. He provided a realistic and honest appraisal of the property. I was confident to accept all his recommendations in preparing the property for sale as well as his recommended marketing program, through to the sale at auction. The property sold at auction with 9 registered bidders and achieved a price significantly over reserve.

Richard and his team were excellent in all aspects of assisting me with the sale of my unit in Chatswood. They provided good advice on the approach to renovating the apartment to maximise the sale price, recommended tradesmen to carry out the work , and supervised them on my behalf . The end result looked brilliant, and I have no doubt added at least 10 % to the sale price achieved, for fraction of that cost. The marketing was handled well, with a large number of prospective buyers, and the negotiations with the potential buyers resulted in a significant gain from the initial offers. All in all, I was extremely pleased with the service and outcome.

Richard Patterson was introduced to us by a mutual friend. He has extensive local knowledge, which was very helpful to us because we are not from the area and were selling this property on behalf of a very elderly relative. Richard went out of his way to visit that relative and explain in detail the selling process that was intended ( it necessarily had to be auctioned). We were regularly updated on the details and progress of the "open for inspections" and as we were preparing the property for sale Richard made regular visits to update himself and his staff as to progress. We have been involved in many property transactions over the years, but it is the first time I have seen an agency principal turn up at a property early in the morning before an "open house" and get out a leaf blower to clear away the leaf drop and ensure the properties presentation was to his satisfaction! Likewise the R&W staff called by to check on the property after some severe weather. In all respects they were prepared to go "the extra mile".

Richard and Melanie Patterson and the rest of the team at Richardson & Wrench, Lindfield have handled the sale of my daughter's apartment very professionally, quickly giving help when needed. They guided the process well in what was a somewhat uncertain market. We chose Richard having some first hand knowledge of him through the purchase of our apartment some years ago and have not been disappointed.

From the prepariation of the property for the photo shoot right through to the final price negotiations we found Richard and Melanie's suggestions to be invaluable and in the end spot on. All through the process the communication was first class and they were always accessible when the occasion warranted. The same can be said about the whole team. We would have no hesitation in recommending Richard and his team and we would definitely use Richardson & Wrench Lindfield again if we were ever selling another property in the region.

I would recommend very few agents indeed. So it is of real significance that I am happy to recommend Richard Patterson. He has helped me in selling four properties. Of course I have used other agents in selling properties in other locations. But in the Lindfield area he and his team are unbeatable.

Richard Patterson and the team from Richardson & Wrench (Lindfield) achieved better than expected value in selling our property in a rising Sydney market.. The unit on the upper floor of the complex overlooking Meadowbank Park and within walking distance to rail and ferry services received a lot of interest from buyers who were interested in a convenient location.

Selling ones house is always a daunting task; especially when we were planning on spending our remaining days there. Simply choosing which estate agent to go with is difficult in itself. Everyone you speak to has some helpful suggestions which at the end of the day makes your choice even more murky. We eventually chose Richard and Melanie Patterson from Richardson and Wrench at Lindfield. Other agents were considered and rejected for varying reasons (often they just seemed a 'bit too slick'). From the moment we walked through the door we felt 'comfortable', a friendly, relaxed professionalism was evident immediately. From the moment Alex on the front desk greeted us through to our introductory meeting with Richard and Melanie we were made to feel at home. With some salespeople the big smiles and cordial welcomes appear somewhat ingenuine, but at R&W Lindfield we were charmed by their blend of sincerity,friendliness and professionalism. Throughout the sales campaign they were always helpful and supportive,; available to advise us or reassure us during business hours or after hours.... even on weekends. Nothing was too much trouble. Sometimes we needed guidance, sometimes reassurance; sometimes we just needed to be gently told we were wrong! But always we felt we were part of a team that collaboratively were going to achieve the best possible outcome. And we did! Finally on auction day we were delighted to achieve a sales price $400,000 above our 'reserve'; what more could anyone ask.
