Richard Bowen Testimonials

Outstanding
Richard was an outstanding agent from start to finish. He was on the end of the phone at all times and helped us with buying a new property in Melbourne too. Nothing was too much effort and remained cheerful and polite at all times, even when we was extremely busy. I can’t rate Richard highly enough and if you are buying or selling he is the person you need. Have never worked with a more accomplished professional.
Seller, Peregian Springs QLD
Professional agent
Rich is a great communicator and directed his whole team to be across the buying and selling of my homes. This made my experience feel personalised and gave me confidence I was dealing with professionals. He and his team made sure I had a dream family home to move into and selling my home was a breeze. Negotiating between buying and selling was simplistic because I had the support of Sotheby’s, any work I needed to do on my home prior to sale they gave me great quick and fair trades to go through. Rich’s nature is motivating and gave me the confidence I was looking for in an agent. Sotheby’s have been delightful to deal with.

HONEST AND GENUINE
No one was more professional and real than Rich. Lots of agents say the same script when you ask for their appraisal and approach to selling your home. Rich is honest and genuine and then works very hard to ensure your home is shown the love and care it deserves. He sells homes not houses and I wouldn’t use anyone else.

RELAXED, YET VERY PROFESSIONAL REAL ESTATE EXPERIENCE
Heath and Rich epitomise a relaxed, yet very professional real estate experience. A combination that is most refreshing and formed a solid foundation throughout our sale process. Their marketing was exceptional, our property photos and video blew us away. Heath's communication was honest and efficient and he went above and beyond to look after our home during the opens. The combination of local knowledge, interstate experience and global exposure made Sotheby's Queensland an excellent choice for selling our home.

EXCEPTIONALLY PERSONABLE AND KNOWLEDGEABLE
Richard is exceptionally personable and knowledgeable. He is very well-connected and greatly respected by other agents. Richard is excellent at capturing and keeping people interested in a property they might not have considered. He has built a diverse team, where he can approach more outspoken buyers and his members can approach more soft-spoken buyers. Richard has achieved a price well above market value.
