Sherry FitzGerald, Ireland’s largest estate agent has announced a new franchise partnership in Longford Town.
Property Partners Quinn, now trading as Sherry FitzGerald Quinn, is already a highly regarded estate agency firm in Longford town and county. Joining Sherry FitzGerald means Jonathan Quinn and his team can augment the excellent service they currently offer by way of the Sherry FitzGerald nationwide network, one of the most-recognised brands in Ireland.
This is a significant move for Jonathan who has built up one of Longford’s foremost property companies. The company was founded in 1945 by Jonathan’s Grandfather John J. Quinn and his brother Kevin Quinn, and over the past 70 years the Quinn family have gained an excellent reputation for providing professional advice based on extensive local knowledge and extremely high standards of customer service.
For Sherry FitzGerald it is equally significant to be commencing a franchise agreement with such a prominent and successful firm. Des O’Malley, Head of Sherry FitzGerald Countrywide said: ‘We are delighted to have Jonathan, Paddy and their team join our franchise network. For us, they offer their clients the benefit of their vast experience across the property industry, from 2nd hand residential through to general agency and professional services. They have an in-depth knowledge of their local market, and their customer care is second to none. We are proud to partner with such a well renowned and important player in Longford.’
Mr O’Malley continued, “sales activity is particularly buoyant in Longford at present, with volumes significantly ahead of both 2020 and the pre-COVID-19 levels of 2019.
Indeed, according to figures from the Property Price Register*, Longford is one of only two counties to see growth of over 20% the first nine months of 2021 compared to the equivalent period in 2019”.
Jonathan Quinn said: ‘We are excited by Sherry FitzGerald’s innovation in marketing and technology, which will allow us offer the best possible service to our clients. Just one example is the digital communications platform mySherryFitz.ie. This platform will allow our customers the flexibility to bid on a property on their phone when it suits them. This feature allows for transparency around the process and gives buyers immediate updates on negotiations as the sale progresses.’
Speaking about the new partnership Paddy Quinn, former President of the SCSI said: ‘Our relationship with Mark FitzGerald goes back a long way to the early days of the franchise when we considered joining. We have looked on as the business he co-founded with Philip Sherry impressively developed into the best estate agency brand in the country, and he did get us in the end!’
