DNG Tormey Lee Auctioneers - Business of the fortnight
Published 11 Jul 2017
Question 1. Can you describe your business?
DNG Tormey Lee are Auctioneers and Valuers in Ashbourne. We are members of the Institute of Professional Auctioneers and Valuers in Ireland. We are fully qualified and licensed Auctioneers. We sell and rent all property including Residential homes and sites, Commercial and Industrial Units, Development Land and Agricultural Land. We offer a property finding service for those who really do not have the time to look for a property. We are also paired with a super Mortgage Agency who are enjoying great success if you are looking for a mortgage.
Question 2. What are the advantages of being located in Ashbourne?
Ashbourne is a young and vibrant town just North of Dublin. Ashbourne has all the attractions of a small town and yet is only a short hop to Dublin City. As Estate Agents we benefit greatly from this. Ashbourne is a very attractive option for first time buyers both in location and price of property. We find that when people locate in Ashbourne , not only do they stay, but their family and friends often move here.
Question 3. Why do your customers choose to do business with you?
We pride ourselves on our ‘customer service’ and try to always follow up queries and to get answers for our customers with regard to their purchase of a property. We are open and willing to talk through the needs of our customers. We try to facilitate viewings out of hours in order to give as many people as possible an opportunity to view our ‘on sale’ properties. We offer a service second to none, ensuring to keep our clients up to date on any offers or comments on the property. When sale agreed we make sure to follow up with solicitors and purchasers on a regular basis to keep the sale moving along.
Question 4. How do you add value to your customers wants and needs?
Our customers know that we are always working for them and that we leave no stone unturned in order to get them the best price for their property. We are efficient and pleasant to deal with. Selling and purchasing a property is fraught with problems . We try to make this journey as easy as possible for our clients.
Question 5. Do you have any future plans or promotions coming up?
We are offer Free Valuations for sale and probate on a continual basis. For the month of September we will offer free advertising to our first five listed properties. Advertising normally costs €350 so this is a nice saving if you are putting your house on the market.
Question 6. Any advice for new businesses starting up?
My advice to new businesses would have to be ‘planning’. It really does cost much more than you imagine to set up a business. I also think we could help new businesses if we offered a good mentoring service. You cant beat talking to people who are in business
Question 7. Any recommendations for improvements to Ashbourne Chamber of Commerce?
I think we need at least 3 good motivational speakers in the year. I would recommend David Williams as one. We have had Gavin Duffy and Sean Gallagher a few times . I would like to hear some new speakers. I am also keen to set up a women in business network in Ashbourne. I would also like to see some mentoring happening.
Any additional information you wish to add.
