Geoff Richman

Buyers Agent

‘Personal success comes to those who have a sincere, vested interest in, and care about, the outcomes of others’.

Geoff Richman has successfully implemented this theory over many decades to enhance the lives of family, friends, colleagues and clients, as well as his own.

Having bought and owned properties himself in London (U.K), Perth (WA) and in Brisbane (QLD), he qualified as a property agent in 2019 and over the last few years has worked extensively with multiple real estate agents, forging ardent relationships with many of them and, in turn, has developed a profound understanding of the process between buyer and seller.

Prior to that, Geoff was the founder, director and owner of his own consulting business, specialising in negotiation, sales and psychology and is highly experienced and skilled in the practice of debate, arbitration and conciliation.

In addition, his median engineering and building skills were cultivated during his involvement within the home-improvement construction sector.

He is thankful to be part of a strong family unit and grateful that the learnings of he and his wife over the years have inspired his daughter and son to fashion challenging careers overseas, the only drawback being the time spent apart.

Geoff is a long-standing Hendra resident, having educated his children locally and caters for our clients from Brisbane to Sunshine Coast.
He expertly combines his colourful and flexible personality with the need to operate in a disciplined, process-driven, and systems-oriented manner to achieve the best outcomes and results for his clients.

Geoff leaves no stone unturned in his quest to deliver the ultimate holy grail for his clients; their dream home.
