Deborah Pearson's Testimonials

I'm writing this testimonial in praise of Deborah Pearson of First National King & Heath who did a wonderful job in selling our property on Raymond Island recently. She was very professional in her duties as our agent, explained everything in clear detail to us, left nothing out, didn't inflate the price to appeal to us as sellers and above all was always friendly and made us feel comfortable with the whole process.
She kept in contact with us by phone and email as to the progress of the property viewing etc and managed to sell it in just eight days which was a wonderful result for us.
Her professional charges were very reasonable and again all very clearly laid out in our first meeting with her.
We couldn't be happier with our choice of agent and would not hesitate to recommend her to any prospective buyers or sellers.
- Peter and Lys Cleaver

To Joan & Deb,
Thank you for the incredible amount of hard work you and your team have put into selling the property. You have gone above and beyond. We cannot thank you enough! Please have a celebratory drink on us!
- Richard's Harvesting

Fantastic Service!

We wanted our house sold with very little time before Christmas. That's what we got, through professional service and know-how from Debbie Pearson.

I also will say that with service like this you can't go wrong as your opposition in Paynesville is not even close.

- Deborah Warwick

We both wish to convey the professional work ethic that Deb Pearson has.
Nothing was too much trouble when we were wanting to look at properties. Deb sent emails of new listings if she thought they might be suitable. This was great as it wasn't pushy.
Deb was always knowledgeable of the properties she showed us & if she didn't know she would find out & get back to us.
When we found "our" property everything went smoothly & even now Deb is still going above & beyond with assisting us if problems pop up.
A very professional, experienced, knowledgeable, friendly salesperson.
So pleased we got Deb when we first started our search.
- Bruce & Joan Black

We would like to thank Deb Pearson for selling our property at Boyd Court. This is not the first time Deb has sold our property, we met her about 9 years ago when she sold our second home.
Deb is so friendly and easy to talk to, we will always give Deb the opportunity to sell/purchase in the area.
- Joanne Bills

In purchasing a new rental property through agents First National King & Heath (Paynesville office) we found that our agent Deborah Pearson was professional, diligent and friendly. Many thanks for your effort over a long negotiation period.
- Tim Ponting

Deb is without doubt the most exceptional agent we encountered from Paynesville to Bairnsdale! We received REAL customer service - she listened to our property search requirements, only showed us properties that met our needs (sounds simple but other agents don't listen), she kept in touch and above all Deb was professional. Anyone selling their house should list with Deb - she will have it sold in a flash because she works hard at it (sounds simple again but there are a lot of lazy agents out there - some can't even be bothered to pick up the phone and talk to the buyers - they hide behind technology and email - in that time buyers have bought with someone else like Deb. Go list confidently with Deb at First National Paynesville.
From two very happy buyers Kev and Chris O'Connell.
- Kev and Christine O'Connell

Dear Joan, Jack, Deb and the Team,
Thank you for all your hard work over the past 15 months, and especially Jack for finding a purchaser for our house.
We really appreciate it.

- Lesley Thomasz & Wayne Sleeth

Many thanks to Debra and Joan for assisting me with the sale of my house and the purchase of my block.
Your professional and friendly approach made me feel comfortable.
I will have no hesitation in recommending King & Heath First National to my family and friends in the future.
- Robyn Wirken

Deb has always shown excellence in all aspects of our purchases and sales over the years. She has gone out of her way to accommodate our requests and on occasion, shown immense patience.
Her professional yet good humoured mannerisms has made our dealings with First National a pleasure.
We would highly recommend First National King & Heath to anyone entering the housing market.
- Mr & Mrs Wilson

Just a quick note to say how impressed we are with the attitude and professionalism of Deb. We were disappointed after missing out on a property in Newlands Arm that was listed with another agent. We rang and emailed all the agents in Paynesville to explain what we required in the way of a property for our future plans. We were hoping to eventually move to the area to spend more time with grand children and live there when we retire. Deb was only agent that responded to our request and had sourced a property that was not actually on the market, after an inspection we decided it was exactly what we required and made the purchase. We are very happy with our purchase, despite a few hiccups along the way which Deb helped sort out for us, we have the outcome we desired.
We have decided to rent the property out until we move over from Tassie, because of the help we have received from Deb we will be using your company to manage this for us.

- Dale & Jenny Chatterton

Both Maureen and I have been pleased with our dealings with Deborah and others at the office.
We have been accommodated well with all our questions, and were always kept up to date with all of the process in our bids for the property.
Finally I would not hesitate in recommending any of our friends or family to First National King & Heath in buying or selling.
- C Turner & M Johns

All went well. Better than expected. Agent was very helpful, honest and very informative.
- Annette

We would highly recommend Deborah. We found her to be very helpful, easy to deal with, and her local knowledge was outstanding. She was always ready to answer our questions or to point us in the right direction. She has great attention to detail, right up to and post settlement.
- Stephen Mower & Kathryn McAlli

We are very excited with our new house in Paynesville. The team at King and Heath in particular Deb, were all a pleasure to deal with, the whole process was made super-easy and they delivered on everything they promised and more. Thank you for all of your assistance.
- Ben & Kate

We found our perfect retirement home – a complete sea change moving from Traralgon.
Deb Pearson is a great sales person and represented First National in a very professional manner.
We also saw Deb’s “wicked” sense of humour (meant in a complimentary manner).

- Wayne & Francine Felmingham

Purchasing a property through King & Heath, Paynesville has been a great experience for us. We were shown through a couple of places and fell in love with a waterfront unit. Deb Pearson was always professional and available, going out of her way to make sure we got our settlement through. All the staff at the office were always friendly and genuinely happy for us and made us feel very welcome. We would have no doubt in recommending them to anyone looking to buy or sell.

From my first meeting with Scott I found him to be very honest, knowledgeable and was always available when I needed him to be.

I highly recommend Scott!!

What can I say?
Scott has done it again!

We are disappointed to see Scott leave Paynesville and move to Bairnsdale (office). However will continue to keep in contact with him and wish him well for the future.
Well done Scott, and thank you very much.
- Gordon Manning

Scott has been the most approachable and conscientious sales person and willing to help and gives regular feedback. Scott is a realistic and genuine sales real estate agent. Keep up the excellent work.
- Kathleen Male

We are now proud owners of a very nice property in Ellaswood. When we came into the area we advised Scott of our requirements and he went to work.
We were very impressed with his true perseverance as our needs were certainly tailored.
After a short period of time we were invited to inspect a property that we didn’t think would completely suit us. However on inspection it seemed Scott had a very good
grasp on what our needs were.
With his great communication skills, diligence and patience Scott proceeded to find us our new property.
We highly recommend Scott, as I know we will be happy for many years to come.
- Graeme and Julie Burke

Denise Lynn's Testimonials

We would like to say that Ms Denise Lynn has been not only very helpful and honest in all dealings we have had with her, we greatly appreciate the truly professional manner she has shown throughout the whole gambit of things involved in the purchase of a property... Being a "local" her knowledge of the area and the people was the thing that influenced our decision to buy in the area as much as any other factor. We asked many many questions, nothing was too much trouble no matter even if it was late at night. She ALWAYS got back to us in a timely fashion, needless to say we are very impressed with her seeming endless energy and ability to communicate.
- Ms Theam & Dr. Ahern

We want to say we are very happy with the service Denise provided. Denise furnished us with several comparable sales and constantly followed up re enquiries, hits on the internet and after inspections. She also advertised the property not only of 3 websites and in display windows but also in the local paper, in the Lakes coast lift out and in www.horseproperty.com.au . Her persistence paid off.
- Pattie & Phil Connley.

Chris Howlett's Testimonials

In March of this year I contacted mark Howlett of Lakes Entrance office wishing to view one of his listing.
I had emailed him well after close of business and he responded with a phone call within 10 minutes arranging for me to view the property the following morning.
Upon inspection of the property Chris answered all of my enquires as fully and honestly as he was able and provided me with additional information later in the morning.
Due to diligent communication by Chris between the vendor and myself a formal offer was presented and accepted within 36 hours.

Being a stranger to Lakes Entrance, Chris assisted me in securing a pest inspection and building inspection.
I was very impressed with the prompt and professional service delivered by those respective industry professionals.
The Lakes Entrance office maintained contact right up to settlement day including the arrangement of a pre-settlement inspection. My thanks to Jennifer North.

This is the second time in 4 years I have engaged a First National agent in the purchase of a home. On each occasion I have been impressed by the standard of integrity and professional service provided.

Yours respectfully,
Mike Duncan

Monica Moorhouse's Testimonials

My recent purchase couldn't have gone any smoother dealing with the team at King & Heath Lakes Entrance.
Monica was very professional, quick responses and was in contact with us all the time giving us updates and what to do next.
10/10 King & Heath.
- Paul & Michelle

We are just wanting to recognise Monica's efforts in helping us sell our Block of land in Kalimna. Her service and attention to detail was amazing, the little things, from the recomendations she made to us early on in our journey to make our land more visually appealing, to the photo she sent us when the sold sticker went up on the sign added to the already great service she was giving. She kept in constant contact with us through the whole process so we were never in doubt as to what was going on, and we were amazed at how quickly she was able to sell for us acheiving a good price. Over all she made the sale run very smoothly and we were happy we chose your agency to sell through.
- Gabby & Brad Duncan

We would like to formally acknowledge how grateful & impressed we have been with Monica.
Whilst buying a house can be a stressful & painstaking exercise, our experience was the exact opposite, with full credit for this going to Monica. Negotiations & settlement were quick and seamless, and before we knew it we had the holiday house of our dreams!!
Monica was fantastic to deal with. Not pushy or full of useless information but knowledgeable & responsive to our questions. Always punctual to our calls and visits & a delight to be around - always smiling!
Nothing was ever a problem.
Hopefully we will be in a position in the not too distant future to further add to our property portfolio in Lakes & we will definitely be contacting Monica.
- The Cole family

As home purchasers moving house for the first time in 42 years, we were incredibly grateful for the professional attitude and kindness shown by Monica Moorehouse. We were 300kms away in Melbourne and in almost daily contact. Monica went above and beyond her job description.

We will always be grateful to her.

Buying a property can be nerve racking but we had a beautiful lady to take us around. We were very comfortable with her. She has never been pushy and gave us time to think straight on a couple of occasions. She had taken us to look at houses and she has always been honest and a very homely lady, down to earth, someone who won’t try and pull you in for a deal. My husband and I were very, very happy with Monica and I would recommend people to Monica in the future, if we sell we will use her. Very patient, understanding and gives good advice. We had no problems with her at all and will recommend her to potential clients.

We would be more than happy to utilise your service again should we need it, or recommend you to others.

Thank you

Dear Joan,
I wanted to write to you to put on record how pleased we were with the beginning to end process in the purchase of our new property at Newlands Arm.
Our search had been quite a long one and finding the right property in the right location was critical for us. As you know we were on a tight schedule and your assistance in ensuring a quick completion whilst always mindful of the need for you to act in the best interests of both seller and buyer, our experience found you to be extremely professional and admirable.
The complete experience of our dealings with yourself and King & Heath Paynesville really was "First Class." Your own very special attention to detail was most noticeable particularly the consideration to new residents into this area.
We would also like to include that from a professional and personal point of view from individuals who have made several real estate purchases around the globe our experience with you has been exemplary.
We would not hesitate to recommend you to any potential buyer or seller. Your own personal knowledge of the area added significantly to the "First Class" experience. You are a credit to the industry.

- Richard Harvesting

I was looking at properties in the Paynesville area. I saw one I liked in Eagle Point on the King & Heath website so I called in to their office in Paynesville. I was introduced to Joan Carter. My immediate impression of Joan was the consummate professional. She asked me about my ideas of what I was looking for and where. When I told her what I was looking at in Eagle Point she also mentioned another property close by. I looked at both properties and ended up buying the property she mentioned. To sum up: Joan was very accommodating and professional - I would highly recommend her if you're in the market. Thanks Joan!
- Lance Moore

Joan is a wealth of knowledge. if you need a specific home in a specific location, chances are she can find you one!
We bought as soon as we found the right home and lucky we did as we had 4 buyers all wanting our purchase the following weekend. We never felt pressure, we knew we made the right decision. Can't thank you enough King and Heath and Joan in Paynesville.
- Mel and Don

We have had a happy experience both in selling our house in Newlands Arm and buying another in Paynesville, thanks to the skill, integrity and support of Joan Carter.
She gave sound predictive advice as to the price we might expect to get and gave good advice and the right contacts in preparing our home for sale.
She was tireless in organising viewings and these happened with little disruption for us. She also gave extensive and helpful feedback.
Despite an early disappointment in losing the house we wanted, Joan was able to find a house that with some adaptation will give us what we were looking for. Joan was able to help us see potential knowing our requirements.
We have been very impressed with the service received and recommend her to our friends.

- Sue and Robert Fordham

We found the process of the listing and selling of our house with Joan and her team to be extremely professional. It was a pleasure to work with a team with so much market knowledge. Throughout the process of our sale becoming unconditional, we couldn't fault Joan on her constant communication with us and the other parties involved, taking the stress out of the waiting game. Thanks Joan for making the next chapter of our lives to become a reality.
- Christine and Wayne

Very happy with all the support given to me and price of the property and chattels.

Excellent in introducing us to the vendors in what is a unique property with large garden needing a personal handover. Overall made this purchase a good experience as far as an agent is able to, at a time in which vendor and purchaser are generally experiencing above normal stress.

Jack Peterson's Testimonials

Good local market knowledge and did the research on price ranges and provided good explanation on the pricing recommendations made. Final sale price was in the upper range of expectation so very happy with this result. Jack also has very good support from his other colleagues in the office - an important factor to also consider.
- Jim Reynolds

Many thanks again for all of you help, we would recommend you to anyone we know regarding purchasing property, you are very helpful, approachable and professional.
- Graham & Gill Penfold

What a drama. As you know I have bought and sold many properties and this last one was particularly challenging. I would like to thank you and your team, especially Jack, for your sustained resilience and persistence professionalism in very challenging circumstances. Your efforts were greatly appreciated.
Always a pleasure to deal with the King and Heath team.

- Gael Traa

I would like to add my comments in regard to the recent selling of my house, and the purchase of a unit in Paynesville.
It was due to Jack Peterson that we sold our house and purchased the unit. Jack contacted us by letter as a follow up to a valuation last year. Because of the letter I contacted him by phone, making an appointment for him to visit our home.
His presentation and attitude was friendly and sincere. Also the valuation was much better than a year previously. Added to this was the fact that a unit in the location we wanted happened to come on the market.
Well, the result was that our house sold very quickly, and we were able to buy the unit at a very reasonable price.
As previously stated, the reason all this happened was the initiation of Jack being pro active so that he created a chain of events that proved beneficial to everyone concerned.
- Judy Mann

Jack always presented himself in a professional manner and his research and advice was most helpful in securing the sale of our property.
- Peter and Jill Elsmore

We want to give you our sincerest thanks for your courtesy and professionalism. You went out of your way to make us feel welcome. House-hunting is not an easy thing to do but you made it as relaxed as possible and gave well over and above what we expected. We could not have been happier with your service.

- Gordon & Alison Walsh

I have been extremely impressed with the service and professionalism I have received from you and hope that if I end up buying a place in Paynesville, which I plan to, that I would be delighted if it was from you.

- Judi Rogers

Jack was very attentive and considerate to my rushed and unplanned request to view my newly purchased property. He also provided different conveyancing options and some disadvantages with the property (a bit unusual for a real estate agent) and where known flood zones were plus local clubs.
- Garry Oughton

Dear Joan, Jack, Deb and the Team,

Thank you for all your hard work over the past 15 months, and especially Jack for finding a purchaser for our house.

- David Ferguson

Jack was extremely easy to deal with. He was efficient and friendly. His knowledge of the local area was helpful to us as we purchased from Melbourne. I found him particularly grounded and genuine.
I certainly would have no hesitation in dealing with Jack in the future. He made our purchase an easy and exciting adventure.

- Dee & Mark Feaver

I wish to thank Jack Peterson for the work and effort he has done in selling our home, it was a pleasure working with him. I would certainly purchase my next home through him.
Thank you Jack
- Christine Osborne

I found Jack very personable and helpful, being very new to the area I needed to start the process to look for and purchase my home with some specific needs, Jack worked very hard for me as a purchaser and I have no doubt he was the same for the home owner. He found the exact property for me and negotiated an outcome that was beneficial for all parties.
The whole transaction went as smooth as possible and I was able to relate to Jack like I had known him for years. He was always contactable and I never had any unanswered questions.
I would without hesitation recommend Jack as well as the girls behind the scenes that also make it all happen with King and Heath Paynesville. Highly recommended.
- Laurie Sporle

Jack was Fantastic! ... Always helpful and ready to answer any questions, as well as always giving us a call to let us know how the sale was progressing. Thanks again Jack.

Michael Walstab's Testimonials

We had the freehold of our caravan park on the market for 7 years. We had placed the sale over 5 different agents who specialised in the sale of caravan parks, plus 3 agents in town.
Not one agent disagreed with our selling price, however no offers were forthcoming.
On first meeting Michael he formalised the paperwork and started to explore avenues to sell our property.
He kept us abreast of his actions and was the only agent that made us feel he was working for us.
Success in the sale of our property was achieved and our sincere appreciation goes to Michael for his professional and personal endeavours.
- Garry Jeal

I can't recommend Michael highly enough for the dealings that my wife and I had with purchasing our house and business.
At all times Michael was only too happy to help out and provide guidance & most helpful advice.
In fact he went out of his way or took the extra step in order to help us reach a successful outcome.
- Bryan & Rawita Carroll

It was a pleasure to have engaged Michael Walstab from King & Heath as the selling agent for my motel and apartments.
Michael became a part of the team and extended family riding the ups and downs through the selling process, speaking with me multiple times a day when needed, and made himself available 24/7.
Michael constantly found solutions to road blocks that were way above and beyond the contract of selling agent, working tirelessly with not only myself, but working directly with solicitors, accountants and everyone involved on my behalf.
- Tara Fairweather

Every good wish,

Matt Baylis's Testimonials

Matt was a great help in selling our property. His knowledge of the local market was impressive and he was only too happy to help in any way during the sales process.
- Brent Butcher

Thank you for your help in selling our business. We appreciate your efforts & professionalism through the whole process.
- David & Kerrie

Matt was fantastic, the moment I expressed interest in a commercial property he made the first available time with me and drove me to each property. While visiting each one Matt was able to answer all my questions in regards to space, location, traffic and general information.
Once I committed to purchasing he did not delay in taking my offer to the vendor and securing the sale.
All in all "great service" from Matt.
- Warren Van Est

It was a pleasure dealing with Matt Baylis on the purchase of Love Thy Home.
I found Matt to be helpful, professional and answered any question I needed him to.
I would recommend Matt to anyone.
Thank you Matt.
- Robyn Voss

Upon making the decision to list our business on the commercial real estate market, we thought who could we list our business with? A business broker or local real estate? After weighing up the pros and cons we both agreed local real estate was the way to go. Then who to list with? After viewing local real estate websites we could see that King & Heath were the main real estate agent to handle Commercial sales. Making the phone call to King & Heath’s office, Matt Baylis was prompt in response & quickly arranged a meeting. From that first meeting to the day the sale settled we can only praise Matt’s efforts. As a salesperson he is very easy to relate to and he made sure our interests were always paramount. Matt was diligent throughout the sale process and his communication was excellent. We are very grateful for his efforts and would not hesitate (a) to recommend him & (b) ring him in the future if we required his services. Thank you for your “thank you” gift of wine and again we thank Matt for all his efforts for us.
- Pat & Carole Pruscino

As a purchaser I was more than happy with the service Matt Baylis provided me.
I had been on Matt’s books for probably around 3 years with a view to buying a Commercial Property (land or factory). In that time he never gave up on me and always kept me informed on what came up, ever though my needs were very distinctive. He could very easily decided I was a lost cause and moved onto more prospective clients, but I must way his patience eventually paid off with me.
- D Thompson

We would like to thank Matt for all his help during the selling of our Business.
We found him to be very friendly and professional. Wasn’t at all like some agents that push sales for their benefit. He was very much in touch with us all through our process and would recommend him to our friends and family in the future.
Thanks again Matt and best wishes to you for the future.
P.S Thank you very much for our gift, very much appreciated.
- Warren & Bronny

We would like to thank you for going above and beyond the call of duty with our recent. We very much appreciate you taking the time to fully answer countless emails. We are also very grateful to you for taking loads of photos from every angle so that we could truly understand the property since we could not inspect in person. Our purchase was probably one of the more difficult and unusual ones and we thank you for your professionalism and warmth.
- Dr Jennifer Werner

“We found Matthew and King & Heath Real Estate refreshing to deal with as we had a difficult site to open our new store at
Bairnsdale. We would highly recommend Matthew and team for a totally professional approach”

Amy Preston's Testimonials

Recently our house we had rented had been sold and we had to move out, my property manager Amy Preston was able to answer all my questions and ease my mind that I would not be stranded with 4 kids and no house. Over the months I was looking for houses trying to keep my kids in our beautiful Metung village but that was not looking promising. Amy as she said she would found us a house. I received an email from Amy saying I might have a house that I think will suit you do you want to view it? And with that I now have my new house. Without Amy and her understanding and compassion from both the real estate side and as a tenant I do not think I would be in this perfect house today. Amy went above and beyond, she took pride in her work and kept in contact with me every step of the way. Every one I speak with has high thoughts of Amy and I couldn’t agree more she is extremely bright and shows a lot of potential. My family thanks her we are so much happier in our new home, and we are very happy to have her as our property manager.
- Kirsty Bertram

Amy organised for my wife and myself to rent a property in Metung and whilst we were tenants she was an exemplary property manager.

Due to the nature of my wife's locum work we have had the need to do a total relocate which includes 60 cubic metres of household furniture and a dog 14 times in the last 18 years. This has meant that we have had to deal with a lot of property manager and Amy is way ahead of the rest.

Her demeanor and politeness along with her eye for detail would be a blessing for any landlord and when I spoke to the owner of the Metung property we were renting again Amy was mentioned in a very favourable way.

It has been very east for me to write this unsolicited reference for Amy.
- Geoff Wade

Amy you have honestly been amazing - you have exceeded my expectations and happy to refer future properties and recommend you to family and friends.
- Tanya Pavicevic

Thank you for all your hard work, I know being a property manager isn’t easy.

I will certainly be recommending you to friends that have properties in that area.

- Brodie Aston

Just wanted to drop you a line to say thanks for appointing Amy to manage my property. She is a real professional, keeping me informed and managing my concerns in a pleasant, courteous manner; a stark difference to my previous experience.
Hopefully things will go smoothly from now on!

- Dianne Ferrara

Lucy Carson's Testimonials

Thank you again for your professional services… I have had the opportunity to meet with many estate agents in the course of the last year and by far and away you are the best.
- Lynne Baxter

We engaged the professional services of Lucy Carson of King and Heath First National Metung to sell our property in Metung. From the first time we met Lucy on site it was obvious that her knowledge of real estate within the area and how it was performing was outstanding. Lucy acted in a professional manner at all times, she was responsive to our needs and communicated her recommendations clearly and accompanied them with reports of market fluctuations within the area. Lucy's services did not cease on the signing of the contact of sale and continued to keep us informed of proceedings through to settlement of the property. We would have no hesitation in engaging Lucy again should the need arise.
- Brian & Janine Kennedy

Rachel Martin's Testimonials

I want to thank you for the prompt action taken by you to ensure that the central heating is fixed at my place. It's working perfectly. It was lingering on for months while you fixed in a few days. I also wanted to let you know about the reviews of you being highly efficient that I have heard recently. A patient of mine told me about a similar experience like I had and you sorted it out promptly. Moreover, another patient of mine who works at King and Heath praised you a lot for your work and behavior. We all like to hear good reviews and feel proud of what we do.
- Jai

Richard O'Byrne's Testimonials

Given that the agent’s job is to represent the seller/ owner, Richard performed very well in convincing us to pay $10,000 more than we initially offered.
In hindsight our instinct was right, as we are having to spend that $10,000 on bringing this home from minus to zero.
Tell you what though, I’ll certainly approach Richard to represent our interests when we eventually have to sell. So well done Richard!
By the way we love this property!
- David and Pauline

Richard was knowledgeable about Metung Real Estate. He was genuine, professional, and ethical. Would be happy to do business with Richard again.
- Bryan and Ann

Richard was the one agent in our eighteen months of selling time that I thought was really pushing to sell our house. Always kept us informed and contacted us on a regular basis. Highly recommended Richard.
- Wyllis and John

We first met Richard O'Byrne unexpectedly after leaving our house builder in Bairnsdale on our way to Metung to view some blocks of land. On the way there we got a phone call from Richard saying he had heard we were on our way and would be delighted to show us around to which we agreed. I said to my wife, "this chap's network is very efficient". Richard had a very professional appearance and conducted himself accordingly yet remaining friendly at the same time. His knowledge of future steps to be taken proved to be 100% accurate in our acquisition of our chosen land parcel. We wish to thank him and his team for their efforts and look forward to developing our friendship once our house is completed.
- Maria and Jeff

Having other agents value the property, Richard gained the job through his punctuality, interest and positive attitude.
With the property listed for only 4 days, this sale was the fastest and easiest we have experienced.
Richard was communicative, helpful and positive throughout and we have no hesitation in recommending the organisation.

- Mr Robert & Mrs Carol Williams

Richard, My thanks to you for the professional manner you brought in closing the sale of my home in Metung. Your strong skills in marketing, communication, presentation & follow-up was exemplary. Again, my thanks for a job well done.
- John Latimer

Richard and the team at King and Heath Metung made an often long and confusing search for the right property simple. Richard understands his buyers needs well and we appreciated the professionalism!
