I've worked in estate agency for over 35 years and opening McMillan Estate Agents has been the proudest moment in that career. I realised the need for a high standard, professional estate agency services with a personal touch, and as I grew up and had spent most of my working life in Glengormley, that was my area of choice.
During my 33 years, I've worked for clients, developers and builders both in and beyond the Glengormley area. I've negotiated 1000's of client sales as well as valuations, providing compulsory purchase scheme advice, vesting, new land procurement, building advice, written valuations for probate and much more. The decision to expand service and establish our property rental and management department was a natural progression and is now the largest in the Glengormley area. Each year we deal with more landlords and tenants than any other Glengormley based agency.
Estate agency is constantly changing and as a member of the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors I keep up to date with developments in our profession and in the business environment. I keep the team at McMillan are up to date with any developments so that in the course of their work with clients they can give best estate advice all times.
For me, creating our Mission Statement has a key start to the business, I believe that serving the community I work in is important and all the team are extremely active in local fundraising groups for our churches, schools and sports clubs. Since 2002, and every year on behalf of the business, I donate a percentage of our fees to a number of charities, Alzheimer Association, NI Hospice, Lighthouse and Belfast Youth Clubs, together with our support of Salvation Army, St Vincent de Paul, Simon Community and the NI Children's Hospice to name a few.
Personal touch service matters to me. Our success is based on the positive referrals and Google reviews we receive from our clients, Our ongoing charity support is based on our fees earned. The most successful we are, the more we can contribute – over £150k to date.
I hope you will trust us to work for you, I know we will not disappoint.
