Peter Cooke

What People Say

  • Facing the daunting task of purchasing a home by myself for the first time in my life, I met Janet at an open house of what turned out to be my new home. Janet Cooke is a person whom you know at first meeting is one of warmth and genuineness, and a pleasure to deal with.

    Once I had decided I would like to try and purchase this home, Peter Cooke guided me through the purchase with patience, professionalism and understanding. Although he needed to sell the home for his client at the best possible price, Peter also made me feel that he was concerned about my interests as well. There was always patience and wisdom in his advice. An experience that at first seemed overwhelming, didn’t turn out that way at all with the assistance of Peter.

    I would certainly highly recommend Richardson & Wrench Armidale to anyone considering selling or buying a property through them due to their professionalism, yet at the same time, their friendliness.

  • We have been blown away with the professionalism of Richardson and Wrench Armidale. From the very start their knowledge of how to market our property to our best advantage, including spectacular photography and video presentation. Their honesty is very refreshing. They achieved for us a the best possible result selling our property at the first open house. In fact in our case you can truly say that a picture is worth a thousand words. Thank you so very much Peter and team.

  • 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 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.
