WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY

Overall really lovely people to have dealt with and O'Connor Murphy made the whole process so much easier. "Ms Niamh O'Brien - 2022
"Following the closing of the sale of our property, I wish to say how delighted I am with the service provided by O’Connor Murphy here in Limerick. From the outset, I have been very impressed with the professionalism and enthusiasm shown by Declan Barry, Maeve Newman and all at OCM involved in the sale of my former home. The whole process went very smoothly from start to finish, in spite of the very adverse circumstances which have prevailed here since early 2020. Declan has excellent insight into the residential market. He pitched the sale at exactly the right level and all I had to do was listen to his advice. He has a combination of drive and an engaging manner which will have impressed all who had contact with him regarding the house. My compliments also on your excellent e-brochure to Maeve Newman and all involved in the production of it. I loved it and received very positive remarks concerning the beautiful photographs.
