Doreen Young – Laurieton

It was an absolute delight to work with Amanda Gibson.  Her empathy and understanding toward my 86yo mother during the sale of her property in Laurieton was a credit to her professionalism.  Nothing was too much trouble and the time she spent explaining details was very much appreciated.  Amanda communicated well and always kept my mother up to date with every enquiry.  It was also very comforting for the family (we all live in Victoria and Queensland) to know that mum was in great hands and not being taken advantage of just because of her age.

We have nothing but praise for Amanda, she is a huge credit to her office and to the real estate profession in general.  Thank you Amanda!

Bill  & Maureen- Laurieton

Amanda Gibson came highly recommended to us and she did not disappoint.      

She was extremely professional in all her dealings with us, nothing was too much trouble, liaising between us and the vendors.

We would highly recommend Amanda to anyone wishing to purchase or sell their property.

“Amanda was an amazing asset in the sale of our property. Always contactable, very professional & a delight to deal with. Would highly recommend to anyone selling in the Bonny Hills / North Haven area! “

David & Carol K – Wauchope

We have found Janette Oliver and the whole team at Regional & Rural Realty,Wauchope, to be thoroughly professional as well as obliging and informative.

Janette secured a buyer for our house in Wauchope within 2 months during a period of uncertain market conditions with very few sales taking place in the area.

We would be pleased to recommend Janette and the team at Regional & Rural to anyone wishing to buy or sell a home in the area.

Sarah A – Beechwood

Graeme was very helpful and we were very pleased with the end result in the sale of our house. Thank you again Graeme 

John and Jacqui  – Pembrooke

“John and I highly recommend Janette and her team at Regional and Rural Realty. We had the best experience with them during the successful sale of our investment property. The whole process was easy and they took care of everything for us. If you have a property to lease out, this is the team you want to look after your investment. They are very thorough and communication is second to none. Thank you for a smooth sale, we are very pleased with the outcome.”

Ron and Greta Warner – Telegraph Point

Regional and Rural Realty is a great agency to sell your rural acres. We found Drew to be very easy to deal with and he explained the details of our contract clearly and simply. He kept us up to date with any offers on our property and generally qualified serious buyers before taking them through our house. We would recommend the agency to anyone who is selling acreage. Drew knows his stuff and has a great feel for the market and does not make you feel like you have to drop your price just to get a quick sale. Regional and Rural Realty is definitely the best agency we have experienced in the sale of various properties.

Ron & Greta Warner

Susan McArthur – North Haven

A lovely and appreciative review for Graeme-
“I recently bought a property through Regional & Rural, and Graeme Beeforth was our Agent. Without Graeme facilitating this purchase, things would never have worked as smoothly as they did. Graeme was the most accommodating agent I have ever purchased from, and went out of his way not only for the seller, me as the purchaser and also the prospective tenant when we leased the property. I would highly recommend Graeme, as the thing never would have worked so seamlessly as this transaction. A very good experience indeed, and looking forward to purchasing from Graeme again in the future.”
S. McArthur

Rachael Fekete & Tom Seagrave – Red Hill

My husband and I would like to take this opportunity to thank Drew and his team for all their help and support with getting our dream property. Drew was so lovely and professional throughout the whole process and updated us with every step of the way with what was going on/what we had to do next with purchasing our property. If we choose to sell in the future, Drew and his team at Regional and Rural Realty will by far be our first choice. Highly recommended if you want a lovely, professional and efficient real estate agency/agent. Thanks again Drew!
Warm Regards, Rachael Fekete and Tom Seagrave

Hello Drew 

Many thanks for the unobtrusive manner in which you displayed during the effort to sell my property. 

The entire process from beginning to settlement was painless and totally stress free for me. 

I commend you on your calm and knowledgeable nature which ultimately saw the property selling for more than I had hoped for, and in a short period of time. 

I am extremely happy that I went with Regional and Rural Realty as my agent and was impressed with you personally, with your friendly and confident persona. 

Kind regards,

Peter & Jacqueline – Bowral

Thank you Drew and Jen for your help during the sale of our property on Pappinbarra Road.

We appreciate the way you kept us informed with what was happening with the sales, the friendly way we were able to discuss the way the property could be sold, how the property should be priced and the way you were able to negotiate with prospective purchasers when times became difficult.

Quinton and Susan Weston – Rosewood

Wide Span Sheds

I approached Regional and Rural because I required a shed for the property to house machinery and a decent workshop, Wide Span Sheds was my choice after some extensive research and couldn’t be happier.
The help you provided was exemplary from organising council, concreters, erector and electrician not to mention the project management, there was nothing left for me to do but watch it unfold.
The result was a shed far better than I had imagined. The one thing that stood out for me was how effortless the whole project was, I found the experience very exciting and would highly recommend any person seeking a shed to get in touch with Drew at Regional and Rural without hesitation.
Thank you again for such a wonderful experience.
Quinton and Susan Weston – Rosewood

Mr and Mrs Richards – Wauchope

We would like to say how much we appreciate the efforts of both Drew and Jeanette when selling our home and buying our new one. They extended themselves to give us every assistance imaginable, especially in stressful times. We really appreciate their kindness, helpfulness and professionalism and would recommend their services to anyone in the Hastings Valley in need of real estate advice.
Thank you both, so very much.
Stephen and Ann Richards

Mrs E.Woolnough- Wauchope

We recently purchased our first home through Jen at Regional and Rural Realty. We first met Jen when she showed us through the property, she was professional yet had that ‘small country town’ friendliness that made us feel at ease. We really appreciated Jen’s honesty while looking at features of the property and the fact that she allowed us to walk through and around it at our own pace, and gave us space to have our own conversation without trying to sway our opinion. Throughout the process of buying, Jen was in contact with us the whole time, including over the weekend, as she knew how excited we were to hear the good news. Whether you are home buyers like us or looking to sell your own property, we would highly recommend Jen and the team at Regional and Rural Realty.

Jim and Cathy Mumford- Sydney

To Potential Buyers or Seller, This is a testimonial to Janette Oliver of Regional and Rural Realty and her team. Just recently my wife and I, employed the services of Janette to find us a nice home to eventually retire to. From our first meeting, we knew we had found a one of a kind Real Estate Sales professional.  Someone that actually listened to our needs and wants. Janette put us into our home that ticked the boxes. Our every question was answered promptly, with regular follow-ups. All dealings and communication fulfilled in a very timely manner. We can highly recommend Janette and her team, give her a try.  We know you will enjoy the same buying experience that Cathy and I did. Please feel free to contact us if need be. Yours sincerely, Cathy & Jim Mumford 0455 556 900.

Adams Family – Hastings Valley

“Janette, thank you for making our dreams come true ! We cannot thank you enough for your professionalism, courtesy, patience and sense of humour but most of all for your down to earth honesty. You kept us updated every step of the way with our sale and you kept our feet on the ground when we nearly blew a gasket !!!! This was our first time selling and we asked lots of questions and queried lots of things, you never made us feel silly or embarrassed to ask, thank you again for putting up with us”.

Mr and Mrs L & T K – Ellenborough
 “We would like to extend our sincere thanks to you for your swift and professional sale of our much loved property.
Thank you also for your sensitivity and thoughtful considerations to us throughout the selling process.
We are extremely happy with the result.  FIVE STARS to you REGIONAL & RURAL REALTY
 Many Thanks”.

Mr & Mrs S – Beechwood

“We had our rural acreage west of Kempsey listed for sale with another agent for about 18 months prior to listing the land with Drew and his team. Within about 6 months Drew had secured a buyer and the sale was successfully completed. Throughout the process Drew kept us up to date with proceedings and, more importantly was able to achieve a sale where another agent had failed. We found Regional and Rural Realty to always be helpful and professional.”

Sunni & Andrew Boulton – Pappinbarra

“We thought our property would be hard to sell, particularly as the rural market had been flat. However, within two weeks Drew’s team had generated a large number of enquiries.

Throughout the selling process we found Drew to be very approachable and helpful. He was consistently straightforward in his dealings with us and potential buyers.

He kept us well informed throughout the selling process, and was at all times exceptionally polite and personable.

These skills, along with his professionalism, undoubtedly meant our property sold in a very short space of time and at a a very good price.”

Roxanne & Gary – Port Macquarie / Rollands Plains

“Dear Drew,

Thank you again for yours and Jens professional service during the buying and selling our our homes.By having Regional and Rural  Realty deal with the sale and purchase I feel it helped cut out the communication of yet another party in the process, if we had of went through different real estates.

If it wasn’t for your constant check ins and follow ups during processes with conveyancer and bank I’m sure my husband and I would have surly lost the plot.Given this was our first time buying and selling experience your guidance and “not a problem” attitude truly helped us.

Thank you both again for helping us through some very complex situations and steering us in the right direction during the whole process.


Roxanne and Gary”

Milan Rajcany – Sydney

“Drew Oliver was a real pleasure to deal with when buying our acreage near Wauchope. Drew took the time to describe the property, talk about the area, facilities and strong sense of community. Drew was genuinely interested in doing the right thing for the buyer and seller. As buyers, we are very happy with the speedy negotiations and purchase. Drew and the Regional & Rural Realty team were very professional, helpful and easy to deal with. I would like to recommend their realty services to both sellers and buyers in the Port Macquarie and surrounding area. Thank you. ”

We  have been extremely pleased with your attentiveness, communication, honesty and advice throughout the entire process of our recent purchase.
Buying a house is an emotional and sometimes stressful occurrence for anyone and you have helped to make it as smooth as possible for us.

We feel that you truly go beyond the general duties of a real estate agent with thorough follow ups, reporting and always being available whenever needed.”

He sold our rural property as soon as it was listed. Very professional and wonderful communication. I highly recommend Regional and Rural Realty.”

Ken & Sandy – Port Macquarie

“We have inspected more than a dozen properties before we bought this one and we found that Mr. Rick Gayler is so far the best agent we have ever met. He is deligent, dedicated, professional and definitely a fun guy. He is the kind of person that you would like to make friends with but not just do business with.”

Graeme Mitchell

“We were very happy with the work Rick did in not only selling the villa very quickly but also getting repairs and cleaning done. We did not expect that things would go as well as it did.”

Mr & Mrs H – Asquith

“We have no hesitation in recommending Drew Oliver of Regional and Rural Real Estate if you are considering selling your home. Drew is very professional and knowledgable. He kept us informed every step of the way during the sale of our home with good advice during developments. We are both gratefull and appreciative for your endeavour and result in selling our home”.

Liam and Krystal Sylvester

“My husband and myself would like to express our appreciation to Rick for his friendly and professional manner. Having brought our investment property a few hours away, Rick demonstrated his ability to communicate effectively and nothing was too much trouble for him and does much beyond his call of duty. He is patient, understanding, polite and very punctual. We couldn’t have been more pleased with Rick!”

Mr & Mrs Lee – Port Macquarie

“After visiting a number of properties which initially appeared to meet our requirements, we were fortunate enough to be shown through a property, which, after three inspections we are happy to now call ours.

On our first inspection, Drew was honest, open and displayed a great understanding of the property, the region and the market.  We felt no pressure at any point, yet Drew maintained contact with us which showed his commitment to the vendor.

We are so happy that after three lengthy inspections and extensive discussions, we have settled on the right home for us.  During the months of looking, we were taken through a number of properties by a number of agents – some good, some not so good.  The difference was that Drew could clearly see that the property we had looked at through him was the best fit for us – despite the fact that there were other ‘similar’ properties he had available.

I would not hesitate in recommending Drew as an agent for both selling and buying, as I appreciated his commitment to his vendor just as much as his willingness to dedicate his time and knowledge to us as buyers.”

Bruce and Sylvia Dawson

“Rick will be a big force in Port Macquarie real estate. rick sold our house in one week we gave him another person’s name and he sold their house in one week he has a great smile a terrific personality and gets the job done don’t be foolish use him as an agent who is terrific.”

Peter Hutton

“As an interstate vendor I was nervous engaging an agent. Rick did a great job, kept me informed and we achieved a good result.”

Robert and Marian Neal

“Rick did an excellent job of selling this property. What we appreciated the most was that he kept us fully informed of progress and went above and beyond expectations in assisting us with the sale as we no longer lived within the area.”

Trypheyna McShane  –  Artist and Author

“Hi Drew, I wanted to thank you for your honest straight treatment of us. Like a breath of fresh air. Thanks again for your truthfulness. So much better for good client relationships.”
