Buying or selling property is one of the biggest decisions you will make in your lifetime. There has to be open and honest communication and, most importantly, trust to ultimately achieve the best result.

Richard Leach has been our agent on two properties my brothers and I have purchased over the last two years. I believe Richard to be the best and most professional agent available at present and would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone. If you are thinking of selling or buying a property then you could do no better than to deal with Richard.

We highly recommend Richard to anyone looking for the right agent to sell their farm.
Richard is highly motivated and a good communicator.
In a matter of 6 weeks the preparation of Sale Documents, open days and auction produced a very satisfying result.
Thanks Richard.

John and Susan Harper

I highly recommend Richard to anyone looking for the right motivated agent to sell their farm. We sold our dairy farm in December 2015 and Richard made it a less stressful time overall for us. We had weekly updates and progress reports on interested parties looking over our property. Thank you Richard for all the hard work you put into selling our farm, with a great result.

In an extremely competitive market multi offers are a very common occurrence, here are a few tips for dealing with a multi offer.Understanding a multi-offer process• A multi-offer process happens when more than one buyer makes a written offer on a property.• If you are a buyer in a multi-offer process, you need to put your best offer forward.• Research the property as much as possible to help determine what your best offer will be.• Remember this may be your only opportunity to put forward an offer for the property, so make it your best offer.• Talk to the agent to make sure you are clear about any deadlines and about the sales process as a whole.• Remember that the highest offer is not always the successful offer. An offer with a lower price but has fewer conditions may be chosen over a higher price with more conditions. You may wish to eliminate as many conditions as possible but make sure you are covering any areas of risk to you.#multioffers #competitivemarket #HotProperty #property ... See MoreSee Less
