The Agency is led by father and daughter team, Michael and Joanne Lavelle, who have been working together for over 15 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 and Fellow of the Institute of Professional Auctioneers and Valuers (IPAV).
Joanne combines 10 years of Marketing and PR with 15 years of Property Negotiations, and has recently added Mediation to her skillset. She graduated from DIT Bolton Street with a 1:1 BSc Hons in Property Studies in 2013 and frequently gives information talks on property matters such as Regulation, Customer Care, Local Property Tax, Mediation and the Sales / Rental Markets. She is a member of the Institute of Professional Auctioneers & Valuers. Joanne was named Businesswoman of the Year in 2018 (SME sector) by Network Ireland Louth.
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? We are able to tailor-make our approach to each and every property we represent: be it in the marketing, the attention to customer care or the lines of communication (particularly critical for selling property owned by a number of family members).
We also place huge importance in each property we’re selling or renting: a 2 bed townhouse is just as important to us as a large country estate or a shop on the high street.
Michael Lavelle Estate Agents are fully licensed, accredited and indemnified agents and operate to a very high standard of ethics and customer service.
