“Country Property were extremely professional and friendly throughout the whole process of selling our house. The marketing was excellent, the photographs showed the house very well and we were kept updated on the progress of the sale at all times. We had confidence and faith in the advice we were given and felt that the whole team was always working with our best interests at heart. I would recommend them to anyone. “

“During a long and rather stressful 7 months we felt well supported by the staff in Country Property. They were professional in their approach, demonstrated a good understanding of what we were looking for and worked hard to a successful completion. During some stressful times all the staff were very empathetic and did their utmost to resolve the situation. At all stages of the process we were kept well informed. We would definitely use you again and not hesitate to recommend you to other people. “

“Thanks for all the advice, support and help during the emotional process of selling [our house]. You and the team are, without doubt, the best at what you do.”

M & R (buying)

“Just a note to say a big thank you for all your help with the purchase of [our new home]. You helped us keep our cool when things seemed like they were falling apart and we are so glad you did. The house is lovely, there’s a bit to be done but we knew that and we are looking forward to it.”

V L, Gloucestershire (auction)

“It was a big decision to put our property up for auction, especially without having experienced this process before. Nick Cragg (the auctioneer) was a delight to work with and held our hands all the way and actively supported us all the way. A person who does what he says, when he says (a rarity in today’s world) and clearly has a wealth of experience and it shows in everything he does. Would definitely use Country Property again, if we found ourselves in need of those services once more.  It was always a pleasure to speak to you and we always only highly recommend Country Property to anyone we know.”

Miss D (Landlord)

An amazing letting agent who will go above and beyond to make sure you get the right tenant. I recently used Country Property to let my 1 bedroom house as a first time landlord. I found Country Property extremely competitive in price and they provide a 5 star service. From the initial meeting … we knew they had the landlords and tenants interests in mind. They spent a few hours talking to us to make sure we got the right tenant and that we complied with regulations. They diligently carried out in excess of 15 viewings over 2 weekends and even with every prospective tenant wanting to let, I never felt pressured to make my mind up there and then. The team are extremely knowledgeable and are happy to help at any time of day. Country Property would be our number one choice in the future, we highly recommend their letting service.

Mr B & Miss J (Tenants)

This is in no small measure due to the trend of working from home and this trend is not confined solely to residents of Northern Ireland as we have seen many purchasers either moving to – or back to – the province where a wide choice of homes in the country on a generous site, yet coupled with convenience to all amenities is readily accessible at very affordable prices.” As to the rental market, Nick says “On the rental side of the business there continues to be a shortage of good quality homes and rental values have been rising. With the changes to tax relief available to Landlords over recent years coupled with the increase in mortgage interest rates, many Landlords have decided to sell up placing an even greater strain on the private rental market. If, however you are a Landlord looking to increase your portfolio, I honestly believe there is no better time”.   Contact us If you are seeking to know more about property in Northern Ireland or are seeking further insight their experienced teams can support you on the next steps of your property journey across the Emerald Isle.
