Communication, tenacity, teamwork and superb negotiating skills are the cornerstones of Rudy’s immense success as a real estate agent. After graduating with a Bachelor of Journalism, Rudy spent a number of years travelling the world as a prolific documentary maker, news correspondent in New York and a modern-day global explorer. His inexorable thirst for knowledge and answers, instilled in him a rare gift for uncovering key details others often overlook, especially when honing in on the distinctive selling points of a property. He then highlights those discoveries to create clear, authentic and engaging campaigns for the homes he is selling – capturing the attention of astute buyers, even in challenging market environments. A passionate advocate for the neighbourhood vibe of Stonnington’s unique ‘villages’, he carries a deep appreciation for the characteristics of Melbourne’s inner east; especially those which will hold the greatest appeal to its diverse market.

"Rudy offers a formidable service for property vendors by carefully managing every step of the selling process. He was recommended to us by a third party and I knew right away he was what we were looking for. The results confirmed we made the right decision."

- Sophie Grant, Armadale

"We had an excellent experience purchasing our home with Rudy. He worked very efficiently to complete our purchase. From signing the contract to settlement, Rudy was very helpful, professional and accommodating to our needs as the buyer."

- Karen Ng, Armadale

"Rudy had judged, very accurately, the type of property we were looking for. He sourced the property off-market and when the property became available he knew it would suit us and contacted us immediately. He facilitated inspections to suit our needs and those of the vendors. He has been the consummate professional. I would have no hesitation in recommending him to any friends or family who are looking to buy property."

- Purchaser, Toorak

"Rudy executed this delicate transaction in a difficult situation with great professionalism and I found he was very supportive of all my difficulties and requests even though he was acting for the Vendor. His response times and clear management was greatly appreciated and I'm sure went to the resolution of an expeditious unconditional contract within 6 hours, in all parties favour. I would not hesitate to recommend him to others."

- Robin Sher, Toorak

"Selling your home is a stressful business and we feel genuinely grateful to have found ourselves in Rudy’s capable and professional hands. His knowledge is such that he was able to answer our questions competently. Better still, as time went on in the campaign, we came to realise the answers were reliable and honest. Rudy’s background in journalism has given him first class communication skills. We would seek him out if we ever wanted to buy or sell again."

- David and Christine Bracy, Malvern

"There were many things to think about when I put my house on the market. However, Rudy took me through all the steps in a very accessible and professional manner. His advice and practical help was invaluable throughout the whole process. He updated me regularly and was quick to follow up with interested parties. He was ready to answer questions and was very pleasant and responsive to prospective buyers. Thank you, Rudy. It was a pleasure doing business with you."

- Joyce Fernades, Toorak

Rudy was an exceptional Real Estate Agent to work with as we sold our investment apartment in Melbourne CBD. This was our first investment property sale and Rudy made it a pleasurable experience; he is very personable, genuine, honest, set realistic expectations for us and worked hard to get us the best deal possible. We sold just above those expectations in a low market. He did this with a friendly manner. It always felt like you were his only client, not one of his many clients as we'd experienced previously.

I highly recommend Rudy as a Real Estate Agent and also as a person of honourable character which is quite rare.

- Leanne Anderson

"Sarah and Rudy have been so amazing throughout the whole selling process. I couldn't recommend them highly enough. They've provided fantastic advice in regards to preparing my property for sale, and provided reasonably priced tradespeople where required, who completed the jobs quickly and professionally.

Communication has been flawless, and they have been incredibly professional, friendly and helpful. They have both gone above and beyond and I got a result I think all of us were thrilled and surprised with.

Not only have they delivered on the sale of a difficult and unique property, but they did so with grace, humour, and a lovely personal touch that made the whole experience an absolute delight for me".

- Chloe - Vendor

“Rudy was professional and helpful throughout the process. No complaints from me and enjoyed the interaction my husband and I had with Rudy.”

Rudy was fantastic and along with Sarah made my sale much easier. I could not have picked a better agent. We even signed on a Sunday. The whole process from start to finish was fantastic.
