I had the pleasure of renting my last apartment from Des Lalor. I could not have asked for more, he was always very friendly and always completely professional, and the experience was an entirely positive one. Highly recommended!

Des Lalor Associates has helped us to find our forever home and we are so thrilled with the process from start to finish.

Des and his team were always at the end of the phone and we were regularly kept up to date with any developments.

The whole experience was well managed and it minimised the stress of buying our house. We would wholeheartedly recommend Des Lalor Estate Agents if buying or selling a property.

David and Brid Mulligan,

‘Des Lalor Auctioneers handled the sale of our home in September 2016.

Having consulted with a number of potential Estate Agents, we chose Des Lalor as they were the most professional, and took the time to get to know us and our home. They arranged private viewings with potential purchasers at times convenient to us.

At all times we got great feedback as to how the process was progressing.

Not only did we sell our home for an asking price that exceeded our expectations, but we also secured a 1st time buyer, making the process altogether more straightforward.  Potential buyers were also treated with the utmost integrity, which was important to us.

The sale of our home was completed within 3 months of going on the market, and thanks to Des Lalor Auctioneers it was a very simple process.

We have no hesitation in recommending Des Lalor Auctioneers to anyone thinking of selling their home.”

“I had the pleasure of working with Des Lalor Auctioneers back in July of 2016 when they helped us to sell our house. I can’t overstate just how professional and hard working their staff were throughout the whole process.

We first met Des Lalor Auctioneers at a property viewing a few years earlier and afterwards we decided that if we ever sold our house then it would have to be with them. They stood out over any other estate agent because it was clear they wanted what was best for both us and the vendor. Their passion for house selling was clear.

Selling a house isn’t a straightforward process, and we hit some problems along the way. Some of these issues might have caused our sale to collapse but they were always on hand to steer us in the right direction.  Their calming presence was greatly appreciated.

I’ve no doubt in my mind that Des Lalor Auctioneers helped us to get the best price for our property, and I’d have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone in the future.”

“We have recently sold our family home in Killiney, Co. Dublin, and retired to the country!!!

We met Des Lalor Auctioneers while viewing a house.  We were immediately impressed with their professional manner. We found them to be extremely knowledgeable, and they gave us great advice on how to best prepare our home for the market.  All through the viewing phase of our sale, they were very attentive, paid great attention to detail, and kept us well informed as to how the whole process was going.

The whole process was stress free. We were very happy with the result, thanks to the care and guidance we received from Des Lalor Auctioneers. We are now happily living in the lovely house where we first met them! We highly recommend Des Lalor Auctioneers.”

Dun Laoghaire is a mecca for sailors and yachtsmen. But sailors recognise that when navigating in unfamiliar waters, ‘Local Knowledge’ is essential. The waters around Dun Laoghaire, Sandycove, and Dalkey pose many surprises for the inexperienced, and the same can be said for the Residential properties! Having worked with Des Lalor Auctioneers on the sale of my Vico Road, Dalkey residence, I was very pleased with their attention to detail – thereby finding a buyer who felt that the property which he fell in love with was also a sound investment with no hidden ‘surprises’. Des Lalor Auctioneers did the research, and came ready with answers to deal with the difficult questions that potential buyers tend to ask. There is no substitute for Local Knowledge.

Patrick McDonnell, Killiney


It is often said that selling your home may be a very stressful experience. Selling at a time when property prices have collapsed and buyers cannot access finance is an added stress factor. We were advised well, to engage an auctioneer who would be able to give personal attention and expertise to the sales process. We engaged Phil Thompson of Des Lalor Auctioneers because he met the above criteria. We trusted the advice on his market research on our house value. The house was pitched at a price that was realistic given the market conditions. Phil advised on the presentation of the house for viewing and advised and sourced expertise an interior design to achieve the best market price. Des Lalor Auctioneers also engaged for us the best surveyors for BER rating. They presented a clear media plan for advertising and photography for marketing. As sellers we were constantly updated with the sales interest and progress. Since having a SOLD sign outside our house, we have been busy looking for a downsized property. We have been disappointed at the lack of professionalism shown by some leading agencies. This has confirmed that our strategy to engage Phil Thompson of Des Lalor Auctioneers who is prepared to do the leg work for their clients, was the correct one.
