Working in estate agency for over 33 years has given me a wealth of practical experience. 19 years of those years were spent working for Brian Morton & Co (bought over and became Halifax Estate Agencies) and a short time at the Eric Cairns Partnership; however, I recognised a gap in the market for high standard, professional estate agency services with a personal touch, and set about establishing just that in Glengormley, an area I grew up in, worked in and know so well.
Over the course of my 33 years I've worked for clients, developers and builders both in and beyond the Newtownabbey area. I have 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. Our property rental and management department is now the largest in the Glengormley area and each year we deal with more landlords and tenants.
The estate agency market 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 ensure that 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, 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, every year on behalf of the business, I donate a percentage of our fees to a number of charities, Salvation Army, St Vincent de Paul, Simon Community and the NI Hospice to name a few.
Providing a 'personal touch' service, where our clients really do take centre stage, has always been a priority for me and I appreciate the many testimonials and we have built up, the number of clients who use us time and again, and the fact that they are confident to recommend us to friends and family.
I hope you will trust us to work for you
