After turbulent years in a property industry that has seen many businesses downsizing and consolidating, it is heartening to see a small outfit expanding.

Vincent Finnegan estate agents has appointed two well-known and respected industry heavyweights in the residential sector.

Stuart Walker and Robin Palmer have notched up decades of experience between them, and both have survived more than one boom and bust along the way. The two have been responsible for the sale of some of the most prestigious properties in Ireland.

Walker was a director of Ganly Walters from 1995 and then became a consultant to Knight Frank. He specialises in residential sales, acquisitions and development opportunities.

Palmer is a third-generation auctioneer with 50 years experience. Specialising in top-end properties, the sales he has been involved with include Carton House and Malahide Castle. More recently he has been consulting with Vincent Finnegan, and this development formalises that role.

Since the boom, the Dundrum-based team has bucked the trend by steadily increasing from six to 15 people.
