At Auctioneera, we do everything a traditional estate does, and a whole lot more besides, but for a fraction of the price. We help establish a realistic asking price, take great photos, advertise on Daft and Myhome, conduct viewings and accept offers. All our clients get an online interface where they can monitor the current highest offer on their property so they are always right up to speed with the very latest offer. Properties for sale on Auctioneera are being sold by private treaty and not by auction ie offers submitted on our website are subject to contract, engineer’s report and finance. Offers can be withdrawn without penalty at any point even if a deposit has been paid.
Auctioneera was founded by property veteran Glenn Henley & online marketing experts, Eddie O’Driscoll & Helen O’Keeffe. Glenn has worked in the property industry for over 2 decades serving various roles for some of Ireland’s leading estate agencies. Helen & Eddie had worked together for almost a decade at Eddie’s online marketing company, Symberity.
