The Radisson Blu Hotel is the place to be tomorrow afternoon for DNG Maxwell Heaslip & Leonard's eagerly awaited September auction. Following a hugely successful July auction which saw a 98 per cent sales rate, the auction team are very excited about tomorrow's event and are, as usual, expecting a large turnout.
As always, auctioneer James Heaslip will be leading the proceedings and is anticipating a busy afternoon, with 20 lots going to the auction floor. The Galway city-based firm is looking to continue its unrivalled sales rate with an eclectic mix of properties covering the whole of the west coast.
James Heaslip commented: “We pride ourselves on our success rate on the auction floor. The whole team works really hard for every auction and we treat every property the same, giving each lot the same care and attention we feel every property deserves. We always get satisfaction when all our efforts come to fruition on auction day.” Heaslip was keen to stress that the company's success is ultimately down to knowledge of the market: “We put a lot of resources into our auctions, working with our DNG colleagues all along the west coast, and it pays off — our clients are very happy and we all get a sense of achievement at the end of a long but successful day.”
More than 20 lots are going to the auction floor, including both commercial and residential units with properties dispersed throughout Galway city and county, Mayo, Leitrim, Roscommon, and Clare. The open viewings are now complete and it is just down to the day to see at what levels each of the properties will sell.
James Heaslip added: “We have some great value on offer tomorrow and would urge those who have viewed any of the lots to make an effort to come along. Even if you don’t end up being a sucessful bidder, there's always great entertainment on show and we will even give you a cup of tea and a biccy, so it's never a wasted afternoon.” Full details of all the auction properties can be found online at www.dnggalway.ie
