The sale of the old family home, after some 76 years of occupance, to a young couple who will raise their family there was a bonus. Dad would be pleased to know that it will remain as such. To you and Aris and the rest of the team may i convey my thanks. Your communication throughout the process was excellent and we were pleased with the final result.
At all times I felt you acted in our best interests and were very professional. I would have no hesitation in both commending and recmmending your self and the team to prospective clients.
Once more thankyou and best wishes for the festive season.
Just a few words to say how impressed we were with Aris, Richard and the R&W team.
After interviewing what seemed like every real estate agent in the Inner West, we were impressed most of by their honesty, straight-talking and understanding of what we wanted to achieve. Aris was able to negotiate a much higher price than we thought we'd get on the day and a much higher price for our 2 bedroom house than most similar ones in the Stanmore area. We have since found our family home and have Aris and Richard to thank for helping us achieve our dream.

Never in my wildest dreams did I expect my home to fetch $109,000 over the reserve price at Auction and break the record for a Marrickville Semi!
I just wanted to formally thank you and the team at Richardson & Wrench Marrickville for your tireless efforts which led to such a pleasing result. Right from the start your enthusiasm for selling my property was obvious and I can't believe how seamlessly it all came together. I greatly appreciate your advice and guidance throughout the selling process. I was completely bowled over by the number of people who viewed the property and attended the Auction, a testament to the outstanding advertising and marketing campaign you put together.
I can't thank you enough and will highly recommend you to anyone selling a house in the Inner-West (though, with your track record, I can't imagine anyone in Bourne Street using anyone else!). To you and everyone at Richardson & Wrench Marrickville, a heartfelt thank you.
To the Vendor,
"We couldn't afford to buy from Richard, but gee we wish we would have sold with him"
Were the exact words my friend used when I was trying to decide who would by my agent. They stuck with me and I chose Richard Perry from Richardson & Wrench Marrickville as my agent. Right from the start Richard was attentive to my requirements as a seller and saw in my unit everything that I loved about the property. His enthusiasm obviously worked right from the start as my visitor and contract requested numbers were just awesome. On the day of the Auction, Richard impressed me greatly with this strategy and whilst talking me through this, he was adaptable to my feedback and the plan was set.
Once again, it worked a charm! I had 9 registered buyers and the 2 bedroom unit went for a massive $78,500 above my reserve. All I can say to any perspective vendor is, do not let Richard Perry slip away! He will be your secret weapon and get every dollar possible for your property.
I can't say THANK YOU enough!!! You were BRILLIANT!
I am very greatful to you Richard for the brilliant work you performed in the sale of my property with the help of the wonderful team at R&W Marrickville/Hurlstone Park, Lisa Bucci, Tina Fotopoulos, Andrew Knox, Aris Dendrinos and the outstanding Peter Baldwin.
Under the stressors of selling you gave me great confidence and on the day the whole team shaped that into a very positive experience. I would highly recommend you Richard to anyone I know regarding selling. You were a personal recommendation to me and therefore I would like to continue that to others. I had the pleasure of receiving a delightful email from "A City Real Estate Agent" singing your praises, attached is part of the email.
"Just a quick note to congratulate you on the sale of your property. Richard is an excellent operator. I'm sure you are pleased with the result".
I wish to thank all staff for their outstanding professionalism and family-like business approach in their dealings with me. I could not wish for more form an agency.
My Family would like to express our thanks for the fantastic job that you and the team at Richardson & Wrench did in handling the sale of our family home recently. Our family has no hesitation in recommending you as an agent.
As the decision to sell involves a lot of emotion, it was extremely important for us to find the right agent to help us to do this. It was particularly daunting for our dad, who found it both stressful and at times overwhelming coming to terms with this change, which occurred while he was also having to deal with health issues as well as those of our mums.
After meeting with two other real estate agents (your competitors), we decided to go with you because of: your understanding of the type of buyer that would be interested in our house and how you explained that you would target those buyers; the strategy that you advised that you would adopt in setting the reserve price, which would potentially allow us to maximise negotiations on the day and also offer protection; and the personal interest and enthusiasm which you showed in wanting to take the campaign on and do the best possible job for us.
As you knew, cleaning out and de-cluttering our house was at times an overwhelming task for the family. At no time did you ever put any pressure on us about getting this done – in fact it was the opposite in that you always assured us that you didn't want us stressing out about it and to do what we could manage. You were always supportive, especially when things were abit stop – and – start due to the attention we had to give mum and dad and their health matters.
The interest which the house received throughout the campaign, both in walk-throughs and online visits, was very encouraging and impressive. During the campaign you communicated regularly, always providing us with your impression of the way things were going, with Lisa updating us weekly with statistics on online traffic and interest.
The Richardson & Wrench team that you assembled on auction day were fantastic. As we now know, we achieved a price that was very much beyond our expectations, something that we privately hoped we would come near but were still surprised and shocked that we did. As we discussed after the auction, things really came together on the day for what was a tremendous result for our family.
Out of everything, what has made my sisters and myself happiest is knowing that you achieved a result that made our dad extremely happy. It was wonderful to see the smile on my dad's face, after all that he had gone through and knowing that the one thing he wanted was a sale price to make it all worthwhile.
Richard, Thank you for the respect you showed our family and for the professionalism which you and everyone from your team showed us, and of course, for the great result.
I hope you are well.
Now that the property has settled, I just wanted to take the opportunity to thank both of you and your team for all the efforts and smooth transition. It has been a pleasurable experience dealing with your agency over the number of years that I have been a client and I sincerely thank you. I hope we may cross paths again one day.
Hi Aris and Richard,
Just a quick note to express my thanks again for your hard work during our Auction campaign. It was a very difficult time for us as you know selling what we know as our family home for over 50 years. You showed a very professional standard right throughout the campaign and kept to your word on all that was promised regarding communication and support. I was also impressed on how you both presented yourselves. It was with confidence but not arrogance with won me over the first time we met.
Keep up the great work, I will definitely recommend you for future potential customers. To know we have made another family very happy and embraced this home the way they have is an added bonus. Again a job well done. God bless and may you prosper with your business in many years to come.
To Whom it May Concern
This letter serves as a testimonial for Aris Dendrinos and Richardson and Wrench Marrickville ("R&W Marrickville").
We purchased the former Bethesda Nursing Home and Stead House located in Leicester St Marrickville in late 2010 through Aris and R&W Marrickville. The property was reconfigured with an adaptive reuse of new and heritage listed building comprising 43 apartments.
Following our purchase of the property through R&W and our dealings with Aris, we had complete confidence in inviting Aris to sell the complete project. Given the diverse range of apartments in the project, we chose Aris given his understanding of the projects history, extensive market research, and his local knowledge. R&W undertook the marketing and sale of the project in a professional and ethical manner which is difficult to find today.
We would not hesitate to utilise Aris and R&W Marrickville in the future, and have openly recommended the agency to colleagues and associates. Should you have any queries in relation to the above, please do not hesitate to contact me on 9868 2855.
