A LOCAL Sherry FitzGerald franchise has been nominated in the upcoming Property Industry Excellence Awards in the Regional Excellence category.
Sherry FitzGerald O’Neill, with offices in Skibbereen and Clonakilty, now go forward to the national finals in Dublin on November 10th.
Sherry FitzGerald have been shortlisted in three categories in total and are defending their crown as Residential Agency of the Year.
‘We started back in the 1930s when West Cork would have been a rather insignificant place on the map of Ireland,’said Ray O’Neill. ‘Since then we have been through many booms and busts, emerging each time with lessons learned and a strong focus on what we need to do to ensure we succeed for the next eighty years, or more.’
He added that West Cork had changed dramatically in the eighty years the firm has been in business. ‘Once a quiet backwater with a predominantly agricultural background, it is now a vibrant, multi-faceted place where people from all walks of life and new business ventures are welcomed with open arms. We are proud of our West Cork heritage and endeavour to employ the best characteristics of West Cork – friendliness and straightforwardness – in our dealings with our clients and the greater community.’ Sherry FitzGerald O’Neill was named the Sherry Fitz Franchise of the Year last January.
