The Agency is led by father and daughter team, Michael and Joanne Lavelle, who have been working together for over 10 years. Their combined experience means that their clients get the very best mix of proven experience with modern know-how.
Michael established the Agency in the 70’s and has been a property expert for over 40 years. During that time, he has brought his clients through several property booms and busts along the way, so he brings this extensive experience to his clients every day. Michael is an extremely experienced Negotiator and Valuer, and is a long-standing member of the Institute of Professional Auctioneers and Valuers (IPAV).
Joanne combines 10 years of Marketing and PR with 10 years of Property Negotiations, and has recently added Mediation to her skillset. She recently graduated from DIT Bolton Street with a 1:1 BSc Hons in Property Studies and frequently gives information talks on property matters such as Local Property Tax, Mediation and the Sales / Rental Markets. She is a member of the IPAV and Associate of the Society of Chartered Surveyors of Ireland / RICS.
Michael and Joanne are supported by a team that has extensive experience in Sales, Valuations, Conveyancing, and Administration. The end result is a seamless service from the first call to closing.
What underpins everything we do is our Independence with a Big “I”. Because we are not franchised or managed from a central Dublin office, we are able to focus more carefully on our clients and work to their individual needs. Equally, our property lists are not dominated by bank sales – a fact which we believe gives us a better operating position in the property market.
So, why is this important for our Clients? In the 120 days between June and August 2013 (the period that will show the properties that were Sale Agreed during Spring 2013), Michael Lavelle Estate Agents achieved the highest average sale price (€165,000) for the Dundalk area. Our nearest competitor achieved average sale prices for that period of €133,000 – a gap of over €30,000! In other words, Lavelles on average achieve the highest sale prices in town!
