37 McElwee Drive

It gives me great pleasure to be able to comment on Brendan Walsh's performance on the two recent occasions that I and my son wished to sell properties.

On each occasion Brendan arrived to meet us, very thoroughly prepared. He displayed a detailed knowledge of all recent sales in the vicinity and was able to give a comprehensive comparison of the features and locations of those properties and that of those which we wished to sell. Through those comparisons he was able to establish a realistic market value for our properties. In one case the value he suggested was a little higher than I had anticipated and I was surprised when he revised the "offers over" figure up still further when the property finally went to market.

Brendan's good judgement in using the "offers over" approach and the figure he set was evidenced by a very successful outcome at somewhat more than the "offers over" figure. His priority was not achieving a quick sale to get a commission, but to get the best fair price that he could obtain for the vendor. He displayed good negotiating skills in dealing with potential purchasers.

Brendan's conduct was at all times very professional. If he said he would give feedback, he did. When he arranged to meet, he arrived on time. If I wish to sell another house in the area he operates I will use his services, and I have no hesitation in recommending him to others wishing to sell their house.

I have no personal or business connection with Brendan, other than in his role as a Real Estate Agent.
