Robert Ganly joins Sherry FitzGerald

Robert Ganly, formerly of Ganly Walters, has joined Sherry FitzGerald in a business development role focusing on country homes and Dublin residential sales.


Ganly Walters, which can trace its origin back to 1847, has been one of Ireland’s most respected estate agency brands.  Ganly Walters was a multi-disciplinary practice but is probably best known for its leading position in the Irish Country Homes market over many years. Robert Ganly was the driving force of this part of the business.


Robert began his career in the property industry in 1973 and has a wide range of experience in all aspects of estate agency from residential to commercial, but his particular expertise is in the country homes and Dublin residential markets    Some recent notable sales include Danes Hollow in Howth which sold in late 2017 for in excess of €8 Million and Westport House in County Mayo, the largest country sale of the year last year which came on the market quoting €10 Million 


He is a former president of the IAVI (Irish Auctioneers & Valuer’s institute) now operating as  SCSI (Society of Chartered Surveyors Ireland).


Speaking about his appointment Robert said “I am absolutely delighted to be joining the Sherry FitzGerald team and whilst the Ganly Walters brand disappears across the country the Sherry FitzGerald brand is one that I’ve always admired and respected.  I’m excited about the prospect of working with Roseanne De Vere Hunt and her team and I look forward to contributing to the continued growth and success of the firm.”


Commenting on his appointment, Michael Grehan, Managing Director of Sherry FitzGerald said: “We are delighted to welcome Robert into the company.  He has been a key player in the residential market for over 30 years   His appointment reflects the strength of the country homes sector and our clients will benefit greatly from his broad experience   He will work closely with our Country Homes team, our Dublin branch offices and our network of franchised offices across the country
