O’Donnellan & Joyce of 5 Mary Street, Galway, has recently been shortlisted for the 2016 Irish Independent Property Industry Excellence Awards in the category of Regional Excellence.
The Irish Independent Property Industry Excellence Awards recognise the highest standards of professionalism and excellence across the entire property sector and provides an opportunity for the Irish property industry and all of its stakeholders to showcase their expertise and standards globally.
O’Donnellan & Joyce is the pioneers of the regional all-day Wild Atlantic Way series of property auctions. With the competition for these awards being extremely high, the nominees are a strong mix of industry players. O’Donnellan & Joyce are thrilled to have been selected from more than 70 entrants nationally, following a rigorous adjudication by a high profile national judging panel chaired by Professor Brian Norton, president of Dublin Institute of Technology.
Colm O’Donnellan of O’Donnellan & Joyce commented: “We are honoured to be shortlisted along with the other finalists in this category. Just being recognised for our achievements, and the standards we set in the property market, is a great accomplishment in itself. We feel that this nomination contributes massively to the growing confidence in O’Donnellan & Joyce’s auction division and private treaty sales department in the west of Ireland’s property market. Our valuations department is recognised by all national and international financial institutions and is acknowledgment of the great team spirit that operates throughout our company.”
Established in 1982 in Galway by Colm O’Donnellan and Tony Joyce, O’Donnellan & Joyce is renowned for building a like-minded team of highly motivated property agents and auctioneers who deliver a high quality and professional property service. Boasting an in depth knowledge of Galway and the west of Ireland’s property market, the Wild Atlantic Way auction division has grown extensively alongside the private treaty sales division since January 2014 when O’Donnellan & Joyce was the first regional based auctioneer to hold all-day property auctions outside of Dublin.
Since its foundation, O’Donnellan & Joyce has built a loyal client base in Galway, the west of Ireland, and in more recent years nationally. Recognised for the service and support it offer to its clients, both new and existing, through the team’s expert knowledge, balanced view, and realistic approach to valuations, the demand for its auction service has grown steadily from Donegal to Kerry all along the Wild Atlantic Way.
The advancement of technology and in particular live streaming of the Wild Atlantic Way property auctions has led to a growing international client base. O’Donnellan & Joyce has generated a staggering €49 million in auction property sales in 2016 to date. The increased profile and national media recognition of O’Donnellan & Joyce has positioned the auctioneer as a national and regional commentator in the property sector, such is the company’s success for its clients.
The awards programme has been established as a partnership among all property industry stakeholders and endorsed by all professional bodies and representative groups including KPMG, Pinergy, and Eugene F Collins. Ten categories are judged, including Commercial Agency of the Year, Property Entrepreneur of the Year, and Regional Agency of the year, the category O’Donnellan & Joyce is being judged in.
