As an employee and then partner of our company for over 21 years Richard sold and negotiated properties on a very successful basis at all times. During his career he was a real estate sales manager and auctioneer managing a sales team of around 12 real estate sales personnel. As well, he was a partner in our large property management company and has had considerable input into leasing, tenancy negotiations , administration of clients disbursements and trust account administration.
His integrity, ethics and care of clients and professional excellence were always of the highest standard and beyond reproach. Richard always acted in the best interests of his clients and the public in an expert and skillful manner and was quite brilliant as a negotiator and realtor with thoughtful and caring and kindly disposition to all.
Experience and intelligent understanding of real estate matters and legal diligence will stand Richard in good stead as a honorable and competent real estate negotiator and real estate agent of superior ability and integrity serving the community truthfully’

‘The function was a real success and members of the organizing committee and others appreciated very much your auctioneering on the night. Your support ensured a successful dinner and ultimately an excellent financial outcome. Your contribution played the most important part in creating an authentic atmosphere. Apart from your highly professional conduct on the night, your advice on the selection of items and the order in which they should be presented was invaluable.’

Marion Rajic - Previous owner of 157 Goulburn St, Crookwell

I chose Richard Opie, on the recommendation of a friend, to sell my property in Crookwell. Richard approached the project with a confident air that proved to be well-founded.

After showing the property to two potential buyers, the eventual purchaser was presented to me with an acceptable offer.

Richard’s manner throughout, was highly professional and I cannot commend him highly enough.
