After renting for a number of years we decided it was time to buy the home of our dreams where we would raise our family. Having decided on the Ballinteer area, we viewed quite a few houses, over a 2 year period. At 22 Woodpark we met with Des Lalor Auctioneers. They were approachable, professional and very knowledgeable both about the house and the area. Having decided this was the right house for us, we submitted an offer. After some negotiation we came to an agreeable figure. Des Lalor Auctioneers kept us fully informed throughout the process. They advised us up front that it could take about a year to finally complete the purchase due to legal complications. During this time they updated us regularly. Des Lalor Auctioneers were very proactive in keeping things moving, were responsive to our concerns and always returned phone calls promptly. We found their engagement and strong relationship with the sellers very reassuring. Furthermore they happily facilitated visits by our architect, various builders and family from overseas. A year later we have completed the purchase and are in the process of remodelling the property. Subsequently, on the back of the positive experience with the purchase, we have engaged Des Lalor Auctioneers to find a tenant for the granny flat. They worked with us to profile of the type of tenant who would be ideal and then found a perfect match. It has been a pleasure dealing with Des Lalor Auctioneers. We would happily recommend them to both buyers and sellers and would most certainly use their services if we ever want to sell our house.
