Why Sell With Us?


The decision to sell your home or property is a significant one and we believe that you need property experts to help you through this journey. At ERA Downey McCarthy we have many years of experience under our belt and we are determined to get you the best possible outcome for the sale of your property while providing comprehensive, excellent and professional customer service at every stage.

Why Sell With Us?

We sell property… in the good times and the bad. Winner of the prestigious ERA ‘Broker of the Year’, we have been the top selling ERA agent Nationwide for 6 consecutive years. If you are thinking of selling we really believe that we can help.

Our Unique Approach

As opposed to just "sticking up a sign", we will take time to talk to you and understand your specific requirements. Selling your property can be a stressful time so it is important that you know exactly what to expect. Based on our initial free valuation, we will prepare a Marketing & Sales Proposal tailored to you and your property. We believe in putting things in writing so that there is absolutely no confusion should you engage our services... clarity, clarity, clarity is the key. Your personalised sales proposal will outline the following:

  • Suggested Guide Price
  • Time Frame for Selling
  • Marketing Strategy
  • Marketing Costs and when they are payable
  • Viewing Arrangements
  • Professional Fees
  • Client Testimonials

At this point you can decide to sell, not to sell, to sell with us or to sell with another agent. There is absolutely no charge up to this point.


Over 90% of our clients state that honesty is the most important factor when choosing an auctioneer. We agree with them and guarantee honesty in our all dealings with you.

Hard Work

We believe that there is no substitute for hard work particularly in the current environment. We will work to sell your property including after hours and weekend viewings.

Our Record

We have been awarded the ERA ‘Broker of the Year’ for the past 6 years. This means that we have SOLD more property that any other ERA agent Nationwide. Would you like to sell with market leaders? Then get in touch today!


It is said that communication is the Breakfast of Champions. We will be in constant contact with you so that you know exactly what is happening as your sale progresses. Even if there is no news, we will tell you.

Highest Possible Price

You are entitled to get the very best price for your property. By following a tailored marketing strategy we truly believe that we can achieve this for you.

Our Database

Our Property Database allows us to track thousands of potential buyers across Cork and Ireland at the touch of a button. Once a suitable property comes on our books we can do a buyer search and send your property details to these clients immediately.

High Quality Brochure

We will compile and arrange the printing of a descriptive high quality sales brochure. This will feature comprehensive details of your property including photographs, custom floor plans and directions to assist viewers. As soon as the brochure is prepared we will send you a draft for approval. Once approved the brochures will be issued to all interested parties including enquiries and those on our database contact management system.

For Sale Sign

We will organise a suitable signboard to be erected at your property. Our mobile number will be on the sign and we can also organise a directional sign on the main road if suitable. Our sign boards are distinctive and well known and they are a very cost effective form of advertising. This, of course, is optional.

Web Advertising

In order to give your property maximum exposure we have access to a number of different websites including:


We will also advertise across our social media platforms: Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram and Twitter.
