Ric has had close to 30 years experience negotiating and selling in Australia’s most prestigious and competitive real estate market – Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs. Ric has sold a diverse range of property including development sites, apartment blocks, waterfronts and prestige homes.
Ric’s genuine compassionate nature has been an integral part of his business with almost 95% of his business being either repeat clients including a large number of high profile clients or by referral. Well respected by his industry peers, Ric has also been consistently asked to sell property for fellow agents.
On a personal level, Ric has had great success competing in top-level equestrian events. His passion for riding and training horses has taught him great patience and given him the drive to constantly improve. Ric also pursues his passion for surfing, particularly at his local Bondi Beach.
Ric is a valued member of the community and the proud sponsor for local and national organisations including, North Bondi Surf Club, Raise Youth Group, Splash n Dash Sporting Event, North Bondi Nippers and Galilee Catholic Primary School, Bondi.
Ric says that “living locally and being able to enjoy the benefits of the Eastern Suburbs lifestyle has helped me relay these benefits to buyers. Often this may be as simple, but helpful, as pointing out the best selling points of a particular street.”
He is proud to hold the title of Raine & Horne’s Number.1 Sales Person & Principal Worldwide for past 5 years and secured 5th place in the Top 100 Real Estate Business awards in Australia for 2017. He was also one of the speakers at the 2017 AREC Real Estate conference which is attracts over 4,000 attendees.
“The fact that I live locally and enjoy the benefits of the Eastern Suburbs lifestyle has helped me relay these benefits on to buyer. Often it may be something as simple as pointing out the best selling points of a particular street and why.”
“ In an industry of sharks with little integrity, Ric's professional manner, sincerity, market knowledge and incredible attention to detail is incredibly refreshing. I'm extremely grateful for the amazing service I received from Ric and his team. ”
“ If you want to sell your property use this guy! After doing some research on real estate agents in the area we decided to ask Ric to help us sell our apartment in Bronte. Ric is not your stock standard real estate agent - he is a creative thinker, takes you and your property seriously and is extremely passionate about what he does. Not only does he really know his stuff, but he is sincere and down to earth (he will tell you how it is) and we knew that prospective purchasers would have confidence in him. He is also a hard worker, arrives at inspections on time and gets back to you after every inspection with feedback. Ric really impressed us and sold our property for a great price. ”
“ Contrary to what some other agents tried to convince us of, Ric did personally attend all our inspections and conducted all the negotiations himself. Yes he’s busy, but he works around the clock to ensure his clients are satisfied and his local knowledge is mind bending. We sold a few days prior to auction with a positive price and very favourable conditions for the settlement so we will definitely recommend Ric and his friendly team Jake Carter and Lucy Apoyan to our friends and contacts in the future. ”
“ It has been a great experience searching for, consulting with, and finally purchasing a property with Ric. I would not hesitate to recommend him. Thanks again Ric! ”
“ As a first-time seller in the Sydney property market, Ric was quick to answer all my questions and address all my concerns. His friendly persona and market knowledge, in addition to knowledge of the area- being a Bondi local himself, were definitely top reasons why I thought he was the agent whose help I needed to enlist to sell my property. Throughout the process, I was consistently informed as Ric and his team ensured that there was always good communication between us. Ric and his team helped me sell my property for a price I could only hope for and I am so pleased. I would highly recommend Ric as a property agent to anyone looking to sell. ”
