Donna and Paul Govorko

"Thanks to Miriam, Paulette and Phillip.  We had a difficult property to sell and they did a great job talking through the options, risks and potential. Being out of town owners the extra bits and pieces they did for us was a great benefit. Cheers."

Jeremy Quiding

"Our family have now sold two houses through Cooks Beach Richardsons and I want to thank Miriam, Paulette and Phillip.  They were great to deal with.  They kept us up to date right throughout the process, and explained all the different options.  Even when we had an offer on the table, they still worked hard to get the sale, they continued to conduct open homes and contact interested parties.  Which was just as well, as the first offer fell through, which was through no fault of Cooks Beach Real Estate.  But when it did fall through, they had another couple of families interested, from whom they were able to secure another offer and the eventual sale.  They were very patient with us, always friendly, and answered all our questions and concerns."

Bret Watkins

"Thank you so much to the team at Richardsons Cooks Beach!  We sold our bach with them in November and the whole process was so easy.  Paulette was extremely knowledgeable, always professional and very helpful and easy to communicate with.  The whole process, from listing until settlement date, went so smoothly.  Thank you again!"

Chris and John

"From a purchasers perspective our dealings with Phil, Miriam and the team at Cooks Beach Richardsons were fantastic from the moment we stepped into their office. Miriam was true to her word that she would follow up with any new listings, which she did. When the right property came along we really appreciated Phil’s honest and informed advice which made our decision making simple.  Post purchase the team has gone over and beyond to point us in the right direction of amazing local contractors and get us settled into this wonderful community. I have no hesitations in recommending the team at Cooks Beach Richardsons for all your local real estate needs and will certainly be using them again in the future."

Ash and Caroline Rainsford
