We chose Richardson & Wrench from the outset because we could quickly see their value principles were closely aligned with ours. An emphasis on people rather than property. Changing lives rather than processing stock. Richardson and Wrench understand the lifetime value of a customer.
We also preferred their flat monthly contribution rather than a % of each settled sale.
The quality of the branding and marketing has, by default, enabled R&W Coolum to create a niche of selling top-end prestige properties.
However since joining, it became apparent R&W is much more than a real estate franchise. It's a caring family full of like-minded people. Colleagues we can bounce ideas off and share our successes with. The visits we receive from head office by Andrew Cocks (owner and CEO) and Amanda Ward (GDM), plus the regular principals meetings came as a lovely surprise.
One would be forgiven for thinking the NSW dominant office distribution, would result in the Queensland offices missing out. Not so at all.
Maree and I are raving fans of Richardson & Wrench. Our extraordinary success since opening just 2.5 years ago is on the back of being part of the R&W network.
Mark Lawler - Principal, R&W Coolum
Mark is personable and respectful of vendors and that no doubt flows through to potential buyers. I have no comparison to make on market knowledge but his estimate of sale price was not different from other agents. Acting for the vendor he goes out to get the best price. He kept us informed throughout the process and was successful in achieving a sale in reasonable time frame. I would use him again.

This was our second Real Estate experience with Mark. For the first we purchased our unit through him - his patience, tolerance and helpfulness led us through the purchasing process with an outstanding professionalism. So, when we were about to sell our unit, we had no hesitation in approaching him to undertake the task. He provided wise council regarding presentation, setting the price point, ensuring availability for inspection, marketing options and timing. The unit sold within a few days at our asking price due, we believe, to sensible pricing, good presentation, effective marketing, and the services of the best available real estate agent in the district. Thank you Mark, and congratulations!

The experience of working with Mark and his team has been candid, seamless and comfortable. We can honestly say that this has been the least stressful experience of buying a property. We thoroughly recommend this service. Thank you for helping us seal the deal on our beautiful forever home!
Jo & Rob (Buyer) - 13 Mora Court, Coolum Beach
Mark and his team were awesome. Honest and a great communicator. After being with another agent for 90 days with no prospects in sight, we were blown away by how professional Mark and his team were. The communication was next level, and we felt like we were his only customer, investing all his energy into getting us a sale. We were thrilled with the activity through the house and then getting a contract only 10 days after going live online. Marks knowledge of the area and previous sales gave us confidence in the price and we pretty much got what we asked for. He also kept the lines of communication open between us the buyer and solicitors in times of uncertainty to make the deal happen smoothly. We would recommend Mark and his team to anyone and have already done so to 2 people ready to sell their home.
Chris (Vendor) - 8 Cabbi Court, Coolum Beach
I have nothing but praise for Mark and his team's professionalism and willingness for a positive and smooth outcome in all aspects of their business. Mark was a pleasure to deal with and went out of his way to ensure the sale went smoothly. He was always on hand to answer any questions and always kept us updated on progress. We have even engaged his business in the handling of our new rental property and we couldn't be happier.
Darryl & Janelle (Buyers) - 2/43 Petrie Avenue, Marcoola
We found Mark to be very reliable, honest and professional. Marks friendly disposition and knowledge of our local area gave us full confidence in his ability to sell our apartment, which he did. I would definitely recommend using Mark as an agent.
Damien & Saskia (vendor) - 39/2 Seaward Lane, Marcoola
We have bought and sold a few houses in our lives and we have never had such a knowledgeable, approachable and helpful agent as Mark. He told us more information in the first five minutes than any other agent had told us in the 5 weeks we were looking at property in the Coolum/Yaroomba area. He has made our purchase an enjoyable, exciting and stress-free experience. We would highly recommend Mark and his team if you were considering buying or selling property in this area!
Mark and his team are a very professional outfit. Always ready to help and give quality advise.Wasted no time in erecting signs and organising advertisement for the property. Interacting with buyers to get the best result possible for the vendor. We would highly recommend Mark and his team to anyone seeking a real estate agent.
John & Kaye (Vendors) - 5 Gayome Street, Pacific Paradise - Mark Lawler
Mark sold our house in record time, we actually had offers the day we signed the contract to list Mark as our Agent. Due to his experience and knowledge of the local area he knew instinctively who would be interested in our property and we had an impromptu viewing on day 1. Excellent results and communication. I would highly recommend Mark for any property matters.
Victoria (Vendor) - 23 Whitehaven Parade, Yaroomba - Mark Lawler
Through the energetic efforts and expertise of Mark Lawler, our experience whilst selling our property recently has resulted in a successful sale.

We would certainly encourage any prospective vendors to put their trust in Mark and his team.
