DNG Maxwell, Heaslip and Leonard prepare for auction tomorrow


Tomorrow sees leading property expert DNG Maxwell Heaslip & Leonard launch the second of its summer series of auctions in its auction room at the Imperial Hotel in Eyre Square.

Following a successful May auction, the city-based agent is bringing six lots to the floor and, as usual, the company has an eclectic mix of properties which will appeal to a broad spectrum of buyers.

The team at DNG Maxwell Heaslip & Leonard are delighted at the response their marketing campaign has generated and interest in the properties seems to be very positive. As usual James Heaslip will conduct the auctions and he believes that all of the properties are priced attractively.

“We try to make a conscious effort to price the properties we bring to the auction floor as realistically as possible,” he said.

“We don’t go for the ‘fire-sale’ type of auctions and therefore, when buyers come to our auctions, they know the guide price is going to be, more often than not, close to the advertised guide price. This particular auction sees us bring six lots to the floor with some really interesting properties on offer.”
