At Hunters, we know that the process of selling your house at any stage of life can be both daunting and stressful. Often it is a process many of us do not have a full understanding of. But most of us will sell a property at least once in our lifetime. Choosing the right estate agent to sell your property is an important first step, and we recommend investigating your options as early as possible.

There is a common perception that all estate agents are the same. This is not the case. There are local agents, national agents, online-only agents, and sole traders for you to choose from; all with different costs and benefits.

A good agent will help you to get the best value for your property and save you time and stress. A poor agent could do the exact opposite, charging you less but delivering a lower sale price with more hassle.

The key to the best result is the preparation. Working with an agent to create a swift, active, and successful campaign that focuses on the three P’s – Presentation, Preparation and Pricing will make the selling process go as smoothly as possible. While this guide will touch on all the many points vendors need to consider, we are here to help you understand the process, give you tips on how to prepare your home for sale, help you to interpret and evaluate offers, closing the deal, and making the big move to your next home.

Evidence of strong client focus and positive client feedback – Testimonials


Hunters Estate Agent is committed and focussed on our clients.  We receive excellent feedback on our professionalism, quality of service, and communication.  Very often, our vendors were once purchasers through Hunters, and they return to us because of their positive experience.  By way of example, here are a few of the many testimonials we have received:


“On behalf of myself and my siblings, thank you very much for the superb work you did in selling our late mother's house.  Your care and attention took all the stress out of it for us and your advice was spot on at every turn”.


“I found Hunters the most professional, dedicated and personable estate agent that I have worked with in the past 40 years - either as a vendor or purchaser. I found that they were open and honest throughout, and made one of the most stressful life -experiences very easy, and were a pleasure to work with. Thank you Jamie and Clare”.


“I just wanted to write to express our sincere gratitude to the team in Hunters for the first class service not only in selling our house but to closing our purchase. It has been a pleasure dealing with Clare and in particular the hard work, dedication and clear and constant communication and service that Jamie has provided us has made what is a very stressful process all the more easy. He has done this with a smile (behind the face mask) and good humour throughout. We are delighted with the outcome and we would thoroughly recommend your team to other clients who are looking to choose an Estate Agent”.


“I have just sold my house with Hunters Estate Agents, and while challenging at times due to Covid, Finuala’ s patience was endless.  I was kept up to date at all times throughout the process. I would highly recommend Hunters Estate Agents”.


From a Purchaser

“It was great dealing with Hunters when I was buying a property in Dublin recently. The Hunters agent we dealt with - Clare Fahy - was totally professional and really helpful in so many ways, even beyond what should have been expected. She was transparent about each part of the process and it was clear that she was trying to facilitate both sides of the deal. This was very reassuring, especially because it was the first time I was buying a house in Dublin and the market has many stories of agents who don't always act with true integrity. I felt reassured that she wasn't just there to sell the house for the owners but also wanted to help me navigate through a difficult purchasing process. Definitely a class act! The other staff in Hunters office who I had contact with were also very helpful and friendly”.
