Estate agency calls time after nearly 30 years
A well-known agency sign on Dublin’s property horizon will soon disappear with the news this week that Harper O’Grady estate agents is shutting up shop after nearly 30 years in business.
Neil Harper is joining Sherry FitzGerald as director of its residential business. Harper has been in the property game since 1970 and in that time has become an industry expert in every field, from residential property to commercial to property management.
Harper is a well-known figure in the the property game as he has long been involved with the Irish Auctioneers Valuers Institute and its latter-day incarnation, the Society of Chartered Surveyors Ireland.
He also passed on the benefit of his hard-earned wisdom as a lecturer in agency practice at DIT Bolton Street for more than 15 years.
It is now envisaged that Harper will now work closely with the Sherry FitzGerald branch network and its commercial arm, DTZ Sherry FitzGerald.
The other half of Harper O’Grady, Frank O’Grady, has retired from the practice.
