What People Say

  • My wife and I interviewed three agents and by far the most qualified and interested was Fred and Ruth at R and W. Both had a long history of successful Gladesville house sales. Both live and work in Gladesville and Fred was fully aware of our 110 year old heritage Federation home and the painstaking restoration and additions we had personally carried out over 22 years of residence.

    This interest carried through with their excellent marketing plan down to the competitive commission rate and marketing costs. Ruth took a special interest with regular updates on each open day and suggestions for hired furniture and colour schemes.

    Then four days before the auction she placed before us an attractive offer from a nearby young couple and closer negotiations proceeded within a day with a result of only a few dollars short of our agreed reserve price. This would prove a record for the area and most satisfying for us both. We had agonised for years that our lovely home was just too big and the near 1000sqm block too large for our advancing years. Time for downsizing and move to the coast.

    Thank you sincerely Fred and Ruth and the R and W Gladesville team for a highly successful sale and easy settlement.

  • Dear Mr Fred Jabbour,

    Now that the sale has been finalised my wife Robin, sister-in-law Cynthia Dummer and I wish to express our sincere thanks to you and your staff, and in particular Ruth MacRae, for the way R&W arranged and conducted the successful sale of our family property.

    Undoubtedly, Ruth's professional approach, eye for detail and magic women's touch, greatly contributed to obtaining a buyer and quick sale and this greatly assisted my sister-in-law. Collectively we could not be more delighted.

    When initially considering who to engage to handle the sale we had very little knowledge of agencies in the Ryde area. Nevertheless, after talking with Ruth and experiencing her calm businesslike approach, we had no hesitation in deciding to go with R&W. Much to our delight this proved to be the right move.

    Once again may we state our sincere appreciation for everything done for us by you and your marvelous team.

    Yours faithfully,
    Mr Anthony Buckley
  • From our initial meeting two years ago, I resonated with Ruth's warm and open demeanor. Being granted the non-auspicious role of selling my Mother's home of 60 years was indeed a daunting task. Ruth's experience and calm manner made the journey so much easier than I could have imagined.

    Dealing with a family with high emotions - another consultant may have run for the door, but not Ruth! Ruth's professionalism balanced with a much needed sense of humour, kept it all together. Ruth is very patient, never pushy and kept the ball bouncing along nicely...

    At the end of the day though, it was Ruth's caring attitude for my Mother's welfare, which proved to me that Ruth was our preferred consultant. It became less a business transaction and more a friendship. Richardson & Wrench's motto of "People over profit" resonated strongly with me. It is a true reflection of how Ruth and owner, Fred Jabbour run the businesss.

    Ruth would say "We will do our very best for you" and the outcome was a very successful sale prior to auction.

    I highly recommend Ruth McRae who will offer a genuine, no nonsense approach and no pretensions.

  • Many thanks for again looking after our family, this time our daughter. As usual you put 100% and more into marketing, advice and personal touches to achieve an outstanding result. We would highly recommend you to friends and anyone else considering selling their property.

    Again many many thanks,
    Tim and Claudia Mills
  • Ruth MacRae and her team at R&W Gladesville were simply brilliant in selling the family home.

    From the moment we engaged Ruth to sell the property we knew we had made the right decision, her vast local knowledge and experience really stood out from the rest.

    The advertising was very well planned which reached out to all possible buyers in the market place.

    Ruth's communication throughout the whole selling process was outstanding, we always had up to date feedback on all prospective buyers, which gave us a great deal of confidence leading up to the sale.

    The support Ruth had from her team at R&W was very professional and made a big difference when coping with a lot of interest on open days.

    The most important thing was Ruth combined everything to achieve a sale price on the property well over what the family anticipated, I would not hesitate in recommending Ruth MacRae to sell your property.
