Annette Balfe

Owner


From personal experience, I know what it is like to sell a home or let out a house. I’ve done it 13 times in Ireland and the UK. Those experiences have been both good and bad and because of this, I know I can make yours the most positive experience ever.

I began my career as an estate agent in 2007, when the country was going from boom to bust. Property prices were falling heavily, there was an under-supply of houses for sale and an oversupply of rental property due to the ever increasing number of emigrants. Clients were few and far between but I found them and they are still with me now.

Why?

Customer Service – I offer you a superior customer service, designed around your individual needs. I am available at the end of the phone and guarantee to return all calls by day end or latest the following morning.

Simple English – I will explain everything to you in easy to understand terms.

I get the right client for your property, whether you're selling or renting it.

Sarah worked along Annette in the residential property sales in a previous life.

Heading up the office and operational side of Dublin Homes, Sarah’s background is in events and technology. She brings a wealth of experience in customer experience, marketing, and company processes from a career spanning almost 30 years, in print, design, exhibitions, property and conferences.

Sarah’s first love was print, and therefore it has fallen to her to be the company proof-reader, grammar mistress and knuckle-rapper for the team. She loves a good pub quiz, enjoys exploring new areas and has been seen shouting her head off at the odd Munster or Ireland rugby match.

Annette Balfe proved to be most conscientious in her selection of suitable tenants who have taken excellent care of the property and rentals have always been received on time. In addition she has also managed the property most satisfactorily.  I am also very pleased to have received most helpful advice from her on the various legal requirements in Ireland.

Annette Balfe of Dublin Homes acted on my behalf in securing tenants for a two bedroom apartment I had to let.  I found Annette to be extremely professional, thorough, reliable and helpful and the letting was done very quickly and efficiently.  I was regularly updated and Annette always kept in touch and I am very happy with the tenant she arranged. I would have no hesitation in recommending Annette Balfe and I will be using her letting  service in the future.
