Richard O'Byrne
After holidaying in Metung for decades, Richard and his wife Felicity moved to Metung to open their successful restaurant ‘The Metung Galley’. After 8 years they sold the restaurant and Richard has now returned to his earlier career in the real estate industry, joining the Metung Sales Team in April 2017.
Living and working in Metung, Richard enjoys a great relationship with the locals and with families that holiday here. Richard is kept busy in his spare time with his three children and is an active member of the Metung CFA and community groups. He loves to spend time entertaining family and friends, especially out boating on the Gippsland Lakes.
Richard has a very friendly easy-going personality but has a very fair but firm manner when required in negotiations. Richard’s sales results in the short time he has been with King & Heath have been outstanding, with both Vendors and Purchasers singing his praises! ‘Professionalism’ and ‘getting the job done’ are some of the quotes that have been attributed to his real estate performance.

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!
" By 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. " By 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. " By 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. " By 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.
" By 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. " By 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! " By Dirk & Emma
" My experience of selling my house in Metung through King & Heath has been most satisfactory. Richards O’Byrne has looked after me very well indeed. His attention to my sale has been both professional and personal. He always kept me in touch with the progress of negotiations; none of my inexperienced queries ever seemed to be too much trouble and he achieved a very satisfactory result for me.
When I spoke to the buyer later, he seemed equally pleased with the outcome, so Richard did very well to keep all parties happy. I am sure Richard is a great asset to the firm and I would recommend him to anyone.
" By Mrs Gwyn Dickins
" It has been an absolute pleasure dealing with Richard through the purchase of several properties. Richard is prompt in following up with information and nothing is too much trouble. I would not hesitate in using Richard again for future property transactions. " By Robert Troup
