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.

Peter CrakeRichard O'Byrne is an outstanding agent and his marketing skills and expertise is second to none.

The sale price is critical in selling a home and the advice Richard gave re pricing was spot on.  And the marketing material and the exposure the listing was given via the internet was exceptional.  A professional photographer was recommended and employed at an additional cost.  Very cost effective and worth every cent.  A must as poor photos m…Read More
