Following the much publicised success of the first of its autumn auctions, leading property firm DNG Maxwell Heaslip & Leonard is anticipating similar levels of success in its November auctions. With keen interest reported over the past five weeks of open viewings, the agent is bringing nine lots to the market tomorrow (Friday November 8 ) in the Radisson Hotel.
The company is offering its usual mix of properties, with something to suit potential buyers from all sectors of the residential market. Director Fergal Leonard MIPAV, believes that the rapid growth of the auction business is down to the team’s ability to handle all types of sales, and their ability to market properties through the country’s biggest estate agency group.
“We have always had a strong presence in the west of Ireland property market, but since we joined with the DNG Group six months ago, we have moved to a whole new level,” Mr Leonard said. “This is clearly evident with our auctions, where we have had huge success and are now widely recognised as the agents who can handle all types of sales. Being part of Ireland’s largest estate agency group means we can offer our properties to a huge database of buyers, which is what any seller really wants when going to the market.
“We have recently moved our auctions to the Radisson Hotel to cater for the increasingly large numbers coming to our events, and while this is partially due to the recent positivity in the Galway property market, its is also down to the service and professionalism that our auction team provides to our clients,” he added.
The city based agency has been a pioneer when it comes to embracing technology; it was the first in the west of Ireland to offer a live webcast of its auctions and with each event it is bringing the experience to greater heights. More than 1,200 viewers from all over the globe watched the September auction, and the November live broadcast promises to be just as engaging.
