Theo Phelan, Stillorgan and Wicklow


Dear Des, Just a note to express the gratitude of my family for the professional and expeditious service you provided with respect to the sale of our mother’s house. It was a real pleasure doing business with your firm and the efficiency and ease with which the sale was transacted is much appreciated by both myself and my siblings. We wish you continued success in your endeavour. Yours sincerely.

Simon Canton, Rathfarnham

Des Lalor Auctioneers managed the sale of our house and were incredibly helpful and extremely competent. We were selling in a time when housing prices were dropping quite quickly and a lot of houses were unsold. They knew exactly the approach to take and we were extremely glad we took his advice. I would highly recommend Des Lalor Auctioneers.

Having bought our dream home at 6 The Lawn through Des Lalor Auctioneers in 2012, we were very disappointed to have to sell again so soon following a work transfer. Working with Des Lalor Auctioneers made the buying and selling experience better, due to their personal attention. They helped us with all aspects and kept us updated with all offers. They offered great advice and were always on hand to answer questions. The sale price we got was above estimate. This was down to the professionalism Des Lalor Auctioneers.

I found Phil to be very helpful, professional and sincere with all my dealings and would happily recommend Phil and and have done so in the past and in the future.

Axel & Wioletta,

Hi Phil, Thank you so much for answering to all our enquiries in such a prompt and professional manner. Apologies for not getting back to you earlier, as we were away for a couple of days. While the house is indeed of great standing, with a beautiful conservatory, 4 bedrooms and 2 great bathrooms within a great neighbourhood, we are not going to pursue any further. Location-wise, this would put us quite far from the city centre, without a good LUAS connection. It is also slightly over-budget for us. This was however a great first experience to visit a house for us, and I must say your professionalism has been outstanding, just looking at your answers below, as well as being helpful and indeed, all happening with a smile! We might meet again for another property. Best regards.

We met with Phil Thompson of Des Lalor Auctioneers in May 2012 as he came highly recommended by friends and things just got easier from there. He was committed to helping us every step of the way in the sale of my father’s home in South Dublin (Woodpark, Ballinteer) from clean-up and staging to final sale. We followed Phil’s advice in preparing the house for sale, spending just a few hundred euro. I coordinated the process via Skype, with Phil and my father in my dad’s sitting room, as I was 3,000 miles away. Once the house was ready in early July, Phil’s marketing of the property and knowledge of his market area was key, and we had a lot of interested people through the house. We had offers from day one and it was sold within 5-7 days with offers bringing the price to well over the asking price and over 10% above average for the area. Can not recommend him highly enough to anyone and would happily use or recommend him in the future! Daragh Mc Caffrey, West Palm Beach, Florida, & Paddy Mc Caffrey – Also now in West Palm Beach, Florida!

Collette Murphy,

As an Insurance Broker and a member of BNI I have worked with Phil Thompson over the past number of years providing mortgages, life cover and household insurance to our mutual clients. I have found Phil to be an honest, diligent and hard working individual who gives 110% to all his clients. I would have no hesitation in recommending Phil Thompson.

From the moment the moment I met Phil, I knew that he was like no other estate agent that we have ever used before. He assured us of a successful sale and then proceeded to take the most fantastic photos of our house. He always returned phone calls promptly. I firmly believe that he put our interest above everything else. His attention to detail and his manner when dealing with people are second to none. He was always courteous and helpful and I knew that we were in the best hands possible. This is the 4th house we have sold and I can without doubt that Phil was the best estate agent we have ever used. He says that he goes the extra mile with a smile, and he really delivers on his promise.

Danny Towell,

I hired Des Lalor Auctioneers to sell my house in April 2013. I found them to be very professional, keeping me fully informed all through the process. They always returned calls. The property is now sale agreed at a decent price. I would recommend Des Lalor Auctioneers as an estate agent.
