My partner, who had bought property before, also found Peter to be honest and good to deal with. The property only took one month to sell which is testament to the marketing prowess of Richardson and Wrench Armidale!”

He was able to meet all our marketing requests and communication with him was easy despite not living locally – Peter responded to our inquiries and emails immediately and was always professional and courteous. Because of Peter’s frankness with us we trusted him throughout the entire process and would certainly use Richardson and Wrench Armidale again.”

We appreciated the fact you always returned our calls- even though our house was on the market over the busy Christmas holiday period. Your advice relating to the renovations we should undertake on our property was greatly valued! Janet and Peter you are both lovely and good people and you clearly know the real estate industry extremely well. We were particularly heartened by the fact our house sold within 10 days.”
Sold in 10 days
“Although I was living in Sydney and buying a property in Armidale, the process was made easy by buying through R&W. Peter was easy to get hold of and would always get straight back to you. While looking through properties, Peter was helpful but not pushy, making the process pressure-free.”
Dear Peter & Janet
Thank you so much for selling our home. It was not an easy one to sell being an Armidale Blue Brick and part of Armidale's heritage.
Janet, you made yourself available in person and by phone almost 24/7 which no other agent would consider doing. There were some trying and frustrating times.
We would like you to know how much you were appreciated. You both take pride in your profession and give advice and recommendations when needed. Your dedication is to be envied by all other agents. We came to be a family.
Janet, you are a gem.
Anyone who wants to sell their home could look no further than Richardson & Wrench. We highly recommend them for their honesty, integrity and trustworthiness.

We would like to thank Peter and all his staff for their help in the sale of our property.
We have been buying and selling properties for many years and this is the first time we have been kept informed about what was going on during the sale period.
This information was found to be valuable for us , as Peter was contacting us with their every move.
Peter and his staff at Richardson & Wrench come with the highest recommendation we can give.

It will enable our organisation to flourish into the future. The Team at R&W walked with us through a long negotiation and we couldn't be happier with the outcome. Thank you to Peter and Janet Cooke and the rest of the team at R&W.

We have known the staff at Richardson & Wrench for a number of years now. My wife and I first came to know them through the purchase an investment property in Armidale. Our experience with Peter and Janet Cooke has been wonderful. They were very focused on our needs and were mindful of both our financial requirements and property aspirations.
As we build on our professional relationship and friendship, I have learnt a lot about what is important to Peter and Janet. I appreciate their integrity, which I value highly. My wife and I are always confident to accept any advice they offer, which is not only sensitive to our needs but also well informed and dependable. They are amazing in helping us build our property portfolio by knowing their market and our specific requirements.
Some time ago, Janet told us about their fantastic Property Manager, Tiffany Frazer and how professional she is. I listened once again to their recommendations about how well organised she is in maintaining their tenancy roll. I was immediately persuaded to sign up and transfer my properties over to her. To say the least I have never looked back. Tiffany is incredibly talented, professional and also personable. My wife and I trust her implicitly and we have never been let down. Our properties couldn't be in better hands.
I cannot speak highly enough of Peter, Janet and Tiffany along with the amazing team at Richardson & Wrench Armidale.

R & W Armidale are the most accomplished, ethical and professional real estate agency with whom we have had business in many years of real estate transactions across Australia. With R & W Armidale, “working for you” is not the empty platitude that so many vendors hear from prospective selling agents. Time and time again we were impressed with their attention to the detail in seeking an outcome consistent with our expectations.
R & W Armidale demonstrated an exceptionally insightful understanding of the demographic and priorities of potential buyers. They were therefore able to recommend a market price that they could, and did, defend in the context of a “buyers market”. Prior to listing our property, we were given carefully considered counsel by R & W Armidale which later became clear to have been sound advice.
At all times in our dealing with R & W Armidale we were accorded the utmost respect and our discussions were always friendly. During the marketing period, R & W Armidale demonstrated exceptional skill in dealing with a range of tricky negotiating situations while at all times keeping all parties completely informed and remaining true to their ethical ethos. We recommend R & W Armidale to all vendors without hesitation.

We are delighted with our experience with Richardson and Wrench. Peter and Janet were helpful, realistic and highly professional. Our house was not an easy one to put a price on and their research was thorough and promptly presented, which resulted in the house selling quickly and with no problems or issues. We would highly recommend the team at Richardson and Wrench to anyone looking to list a house.
Coenraad and Lesley Mouton
To Dear Peter – you treated me like a person from Day 1. With competence, respect and quiet humour you patiently answered my (many) questions and offered me frank, fearless and well-informed advice throughout the sale of my home.
To Dear Janet – talk about going the extra mile!! You turned my home into a palace and to that effect even went so far as putting your own hand-made quilts, (and your son’s teddy bears) on my beds. Wow!!
To Dear Tiffany – with calm, competence and a welcome smile, you effortlessly coordinated us all!
Why would I recommend R and W Armidale to my friends and family? The answer is simple, outstanding service. Selling my home was most definitely a team effort. How fortunate I am to have had such a warm and competent team of people looking after my interests!!
We would like to thank Tiffany Frazer and the team at Richardson & Wrench for their professionalism, honesty and efficiency during our entire rental experience in Armidale. As experienced renters, we can safely say that this was the best experience we have had with a real estate agency, and would highly recommend their services to anyone wishing to rent in the New England region.
Steven & Ashley
We would like to thank Richardson and Wrench for their great work on the sale of our house.
Once we made the decision to switch to R &W we were certain we had made a good decision. Their professional touch and attitude was clearly going to give us a winning edge, and two weeks later the house was sold!
The lesson for other sellers, who feel their first choice of agent may not be the best, is change!
We couldn't have been happier with our result and with the professionalism of R&W.
So a heartfelt thank you must go to Peter, Janet and staff for their efforts.

Richardson and Wrench Armidale recently sold my property. Not an easy one to sell, this property is unusual, gorgeous, but not for the faint hearted buyer!
I have never before encountered the like of Janet and Peter and I have dealt with many a real estate agent in my past.
Janet and Peter inspire trust, they are open and generous with their advice and recommendations.
They take justifiable pride in their profession and their professionalism. They are realistic in their valuations, they ensure that any potential buyer has been properly credentialed.
Richardson and Wrench's other great strength is their personal approach, they seek and attain an understanding of their client and the clients needs. They have a personal and genuine interest in achieving the best outcomes for all parties.
They are great people, displaying in all their dealings a great level of honesty and integrity, they are to be trusted. And as for Tiffany, what can I say, what a women!
I cannot recommend Richardson and Wrench Armidale highly enough.
A sincere thank you to all the Armidale Richardson & Wrench sales team for seeing us through to the settlement of our property sale. For various reasons the sale process was somewhat protracted, but R&W showed tenacity, perseverance and dedication throughout - providing helpful professional advice, diligent marketing, and personalised service. At the same time, our own wishes, needs and options were always treated with due respect and agreed changes in strategy always effected without delay. We would recommend Armidale's R&W Agency to any vendor seeking a readily accessible, diligent and trustworthy real estate sales team.
Peter and Janet and their team at R & W approached the sale of our home with admirable professionalism. We were impressed at their marketing approach, they kept us informed throughout, the property sold quickly and we were very happy with the price obtained. Peter and Janet had a very sensitive understanding of our needs as well as the needs of the purchaser. As vendors we quickly formed a very positive and comfortable relationship with the agents and, at all times, felt they were working in our interests. All of our expectations were met. We have no hesitation in recommending Peter and Janet to others.

Having recently decided to relocate overseas we faced the daunting task of selling our house from abroad. Much to our relief we had engaged Peter and Janet at R&W as our agents.
Throughout the process we were constantly impressed by the level of integrity, professionalism and compassion that resounded from the whole R&W team. Peter’s knowledge of the local market, Janet’s attention to detail in the presentation of the property and the collective importance that R&W place on the client-agent relationship were second to none. By placing total faith in Peter and Janet we were rewarded with them finding us short-term tenants, who as it turned out were awaiting settlement on another R&W property as they too were relocating. The mutual benefit that was brought to both parties by the R&W team stands as further testament to the exemplary level of service extended to all of R&W’s clients, buyers or sellers alike.
Reflecting upon our experience the decision to engage R&W was one of the wisest we have ever made. The team are consummate professionals who provide a uniquely personalised and assuring service that extends well beyond the norm. We have no hesitations in recommending R&W to anyone wishing to buy or sell in Armidale, particularly if you are seeking an agent who is not only caring and involved but also has your best interests at heart.
Many thanks for everything.
Chris and Lizi
Tiffany recently helped me in the purchase of a small unit. It is the first home I’ve owned in my life and Tiffany’s care and concern, as well as her professionalism and expertise, went a long way towards alleviating any anxiety I may have felt. She obviously cares about her clients and will go the extra mile to help them achieve the best possible outcome.

We needed to sell our house in Armidale. It was in a very attractive area and had many excellent features. Yet over three months we had, despite visitors, no offers- not even a nibble.
A close friend strongly urged several times that we change agents and ask Peter and Janet Cooke of Richardson and Wrench to sell it. We resisted this for some time as we had always had a good relationship with our agent and hesitated to give offence. Anyway, perhaps no one was buying at that time.
Finally we asked Peter and Janet to take us on. They got down to business straight away. After a detailed, considered and sensible valuation from Peter, we had a truly dynamic publicity campaign with some excellent professionally executed photos. Suddenly there was a dramatic increase in interested visitors and for the first time we had some offers.
The Cookes clearly had valuable and interested clients and not just in Armidale. Within a relatively short time the house was sold at the previously agreed valuation price.
I cannot emphasize enough how impressed we were with the care, energy and advice that Janet and Peter displayed. They were in constant contact with us regarding developments - always keeping our expectations realistic and never hesitating to give advice about the house’s appearance where necessary.
They are very experienced, innovative and good with public relations.
A quite excellent team producing an excellent result.
