Dear John,

Firstly let me start by saying, We have brought and sold properties in the past, and have been let down by over promising and under delivering on every occasion until now.

I am writing to express our sincerest gratitude to Elli James for the effort that went into the sale of our home 60 Castle Circuit Umina Beach.

Elli and the team at Richardson and Wrench Umina Beach have exceeded our expectations in every way. Elli continuously provided feedback throughout the whole process so we knew exactly where we stood.

Ultimately you employ an agent for their marketing and negotiation skills. Elli carried out strategic marketing activities to ensure the highest level of enquiry was received, and she demonstrated exemplary negotiation resulting in a fantastic price for our property. We couldn’t be happier.

We would be thrilled to recommend Elli James and the team from Richardson and Wrench Umina Beach to anyone who is considering buying, selling or renting their home.

Your business has a valuable asset in Elli, Thank you for employing such a genuine customer focused team.
Regards

We found Francois to be a wonderful person to deal with. He looked after our interests as well as the vendor's interest. He was always prompt in his responses and anticipating issues for both parties. Because of his hard work and knowledge of the marked and what we wanted, we only had to look at three properties, before we dcided on buying our new home. Thank you Francois.
Due to his diligence and negotiating skills, both parties will now progress to a new heights, which promise to enjoy time with our families.

It was important to us to work with a service provider who communicated regularly about activities relating to the sale of our properties. Damien was consistent in both his efforts to sell our properties, as well as his approach to client relationship management. Damien is very professional, which is rare to find on the Central Coast. Damien is not a 'set and forget' agent. He genuinely tailors the market positioning of each property with consideration.

Damien was the perfect agent for us - friendly, obliging and efficient. He was very helpful, nothing was too much trouble. It's great to feel relaxed when viewing a house - he suggested a private viewing as we couldn't attend the Open House. We feel he was a very good go-between for vendor and buyer.

Scott never gave up on selling my apartment, which was on the market for a full year. There was plenty of competition from other units for sale in the same building, but this did not seem to perturb him in his efforts in marketing my property. His negotiating skills were up there with the best and I was very happy with the final outcome. No hesitation in recommending Scott for handling the buying or selling of property in the Sydney/Central Coast area.

Scott has provided excellent service from end to end, including friendly open discussion about the merits of the property, assisting us with relevant market information as negotiations progressed, clear and reliable communication during the negotiation phase, and finally after price had been agreed, facilitating engagement with the property management department of his agency to help us understand what our options are. One example of exceptional service involving arranging access to the property at short notice, on a Sunday! This was done in a friendly, straightforward manner with no-fuss. If I was selling my property, this commitment is EXACTLY what I would appreciate

Just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for your service, in regard to the sale of my late parent's property in Umina.

While the finalising of their estate, which has involved the sale of their home, is now in its final stages of completion, it indeed has been a challenging and emotional year.

Given I live interstate most of our communication has been via telephone and email, I am grateful for the efficient and professional service you have provided, to facilitate a smooth transaction.
From the initial market appraisal, to the marketing and sales strategy, which was clear and accurate, the actual sales process completed quickly and easily, with an outstanding result.

Certainly, I felt that you worked hard for us, to achieve a fantastic result, and i appreciated all the advice and assistance I received along the way, all delivered with a high level of integrity.
I would have no hesitation in recommending you and Richardson & Wrench Umina, to any of my friends on the peninsula who may be considering a future sale.
Thank you

Joel was outstanding in his knowledge of the local property market and advising what we should expect in the current rental market and therefore successfully finding us suitable tenants.
We would have no hesitation in recommending such a great team and we look forward to a long relationship with R & W Property Management Umina.

Damien was fantastic Straight to the point and with the truth.
He genuinely got the best price he possibly could for me he could have settled for less because he had achieved my asking price however he went the extra yard and pushed for a better price which he achieved.
You are in good hands if you are taking your advice from Damien. I can be contacted on 0413 448 091 if you would like qualification on any of the above. Good luck for your future Damien.

To whom it may concern,
I live in Queensland and I have had Joel as my Property Manager for a rental property of mine in Umina Beach New South Wales for 7 years.
As you can imagine living in Queensland and having a rental in another state presents its own difficulties.
I have nothing but praise for Joel and his team and would recommend them to anyone requiring Property Management.
Joel was only ever a phone-call or text away and promptly returned calls and answered questions effectively. A lot of anxious moments were relieved by Joel and I was always given a clear understanding of what was happening with the property and options available.
I was always kept up to date with inspections, maintenance and growth in the area. Advice given was clear and concise and knowledge based.
Joel was always there to offer help and support. Joel certainly made living in another state and not being close by when things happened much easier and a load off my mind as I could rely on him to sort things out if needed.
I am now in the process of selling the property and I want to thank Joel for all the above. I even remember him talking with me when he rang to see if we were re-newing the lease and our beautiful golden retriever had just passed recently and he was very sympathetic and kind.
So thanks for everything you are a very reliable dependable and honest caring person and I would recommend you to anyone.

To whom this may concern,

I would like to start by introducing myself as a Landlord of 15 years and owner of 6 properties in both Sydney and Central Coast, who's dealt with many agents during this time and wish to share the following:

I would like to express my great satisfaction in dealing with Richardson & Wrench Umina Beach, since being recommended, in leasing what is a difficult apartment in the Mantra Resort.

I would particular like to thank Joel Fletcher, who's consistent effort in communicating updates and responding to any concerns/clarification efficiently & regularly throughout the leasing phase of my property is second to none.

Joel's knowledge, experience & professional easy going approach provides reassurance that you are in good hands.

Unlike other agents in the area, Joel was able to respond to all my enquiries on the same day, either via phone or email as requested. He truly has your best interest at heart, looking to all resources, in getting the job done. Joel is happy to accommodate your needs, even during tuff times, as he recommends others, outside his agency, to aid where possible. Joel and his team listen to you, suggesting recommendations and action accordingly, working together without any confusion, upset or misunderstanding that could lead to unpleasant consequences and financial cost.

I would highly recommend Joel and his team of Richardson & Wrench Umina Beach to any prospective Landlord, looking for efficient & regular communication, whilst obtaining personalised professional quality service, that is easy going, reassuring, pleasant to deal with and second to none. You won't be disappointed.

Thank you Joel & your team for locating the perfect tenant over a long lease, defining the odds, where other agents dare go.

After 7 years dealing with Real Estate Agent in the Peninsula, I'm now satisfied that I have the right one, as I look forward to a long-term continued business relationship with Richardson & Wrench Umina Beach.

They say you have to earn trust before you can give it, and I can assure you Richardson & Wrench Umina Beach have certainly earned mine.

Should any prospective landlord wish to discuss this further with me, I would be more than happy to assist.

To Whom It May Concern:

I bought a property in Umina Beach in 2005. Until Joel became the property manager on this
Investment I had no idea how professional and thorough a property manager could be. I had been through a few property managers who passed the buck onto the previous one whenever I had issues about tenants, communication and maintenance.

Once Joel took on my property, he maintained regular inspections, communicated with me regularly with updates and insights and even offered his personal opinion and gave good, practical advice based on his wealth of experience in real estate and his knowledge of the local area.

Such has been my/our experience with Joel as property manager that when came time to re-invest, our primary motivation for re investing in Umina Beach again was Joel Fletcher. An investment which goes to our long-term security, and which we do not live near, could only be trusted to Joel as far as we were concerned. From the moment we exchanged on the new investment property Joel was on the case, ensuring we were taking all necessary measures to ensure the letting of the property happened swiftly and smoothly.

With a great advertising campaign leading up to the property exchange, and after
Successfully getting 2 large groups of interested parties through (with owners still living in the house) and a vigilant selection criterion, I had a tenant ready to move in the day the owners moved out.

Things didnt go to plan when the owners left the home in a substandard level of hygiene BUT that is when Joels networking and hyper vigilance really kicked in. He liaised with the tenant and subsequently had a team of cleaners, carpet washers, lawn maintenance tradesman, as well as the water efficiency and smoke alarm servicemen over within 48 hours. The tenant moved in to a clean and well-presented home within 3 days. His diligence and work ethic make him a stand-out. We find him to be genuine, candid and direct, thorough and reliable and I cannot speak highly enough of Joel Fletcher.
