When Mark Dawes opened Richardson & Wrench Alexandria|Waterloo in 2003 it was a calculated act of faith. He'd observed the move towards inner-city living in the east and inner-west and foresaw a time when the south-eastern end of the city would follow suit.
As one of the first real estate agencies to establish a base in the area, Mark has leveraged his McEvoy Street position to develop an office renowned for its deep understanding of the local market.
He has witnessed the many fluctuations of the local market since the first wave of urban renewal projects a decade ago, the subsequent flattening in demand and then the steady rise to become one of Sydney's most sought after inner-city locations to live.
R&W Alexandria|Waterloo is deeply entrenched in its local neighbourhood with a long-term view of its future. This has shaped the agency's customer service philosophy and commitment to providing transparent advice where vendor and buyer, tenant and landlord can walk away feeling that they have been treated fairly.
With a focus on the suburbs of Alexandria, Waterloo, Zetland and Beaconsfield, the office has a solid understanding of real estate values in the area and the impact of future development in the urban renewal areas, including Green Square.
It is well positioned to assist clients' diverse real estate needs offering expert advice in residential and commercial sales and leasing, project marketing, valuation, finance, investment planning, and specialist referrals.
The company has made a significant investment in digital technologies to enhance its Internet marketing with a database that extends its reach well beyond the traditional real estate platforms. Its innovative marketing strategies have been tried and tested over many years to obtain maximum impact so that every property for sale or lease reaches its full market potential.
As a stakeholder in the community's future prosperity R&W Alexandria/Waterloo in 2014 launched its Love Local Loyalty Card to support local business and introduce residents to the attractions of the area. The office is a long-term supporter of the Starlight Children's Foundation and the Bondi Surf Bathers Life Saving Club.
