In an increasingly complex rental and housing market I very luckily found Eldron to both find a tenant and manage my property. Shane and his team are exceptionally easy, friendly and straightforward to work with. They manage at the same time to be exceptionally efficient and effective at what they do (they managed everything with great ease). Their experience and background are evident. I would use them again and recommend them to anyone to manage any project - no matter the what the type or scale.

I worked with Eldron over the course of a residential property search in Dublin. From the outset, I found Shane to be knowledgable, positive, and motivated, showing unflagging energy & commitment even though the process was long & challenging. I appreciated having a trustworthy, experienced expert in my corner. Shane always kept perspective regardless of the very difficult market, and when I finally found the ideal apartment, he was instrumental in closing it at the asking price. I can warmly recommend Shane & Eldron - I am very happy I worked with them and they are entirely worth the investment in such an important purchase. I have recommended Eldron to others & will continue to.

After doing some initial research, including speaking with the available Dublin-based house hunter companies, we went with Eldron based on the initial consultation we had with them - it was clear that they understood what we wanted to achieve, and were able to give us very helpful direction based on their knowledge of the market. The property search itself went very well, with the video + voiceover format of prospective properties being very effective. Eldron also provided particularly good service and advice during the negotiation and closing phase on the property we decided to purchase.

We are Dublin locals and were searching for our first own property, Shane and Daniel helped us with the search. Although we engaged in property viewings ourselves their video recordings saved us a lot of time as we could rule out several options before viewing. Their remarks on the properties were also helpful, for example on one occasion they reassured us that we can find better - and they were right. They managed all communication with selling agents including bidding and also helped us with other aspects of the sales procedure. Although we had minor issues with communication (date of property inspection was miscommunicated, didn't receive info required for home insurance) in general they removed a lot of hassle from the procedure and we got the keys to a property we like.

Shane and the team did a fantastic job helping me find a classic old house in Portobello, he was clear on the pros and cons at all times and very valuable in the final negotiations, overall highly recommended.

My wife and I wished to locate and purchase a house in Dublin in 2018. As we were residing far from Dublin we knew we needed to secure the services of someone highly knowledgeable in the Irish real estate market, preferably someone used to dealing with non-resident purchases and property management. Eldron Property Consultants fit the bill perfectly!
Shane and Daniel provided us with valuable insight into neighborhoods, potential issues with older/listed homes, and the whole closing process. Over the three months of searching we knew we were in good hands, and Shane and/or Daniel personally visited and videotaped several potential properties for us. Once we settled on a house in Blackrock Shane's real estate prowess really came to the forefront, as his negotiation tactics netted us a sale well under asking and on terms favorable to us. Given the price charged by Eldron for their services I know we got a top quality service at a very affordable price.
But Eldron's role did not stop there. Once we closed I flew up to spend a couple days in the property and check it out more thoroughly for myself. Shane had the foresight to leave an inflatable mattress for me to us - I didn't even have to ask. He and Daniel organized a series of contractor appointments into my tight schedule in Dublin.
Having helped us buy a house, Eldron then worked as our property manager. Despite an initial estimate of roughly 3,500 euros/month in rent, Eldron got us 4,050/month on a one year lease (which is what we wanted). I know that Shane worked overtime to get us the max price, and also to make sure we had the proper insurance coverage for the property and rental. Shane even agreed to forego a few months of management fees in order to secure the type of tenancy we sought, and he negotiated the tenant pay for the annual insurance premiums. Really, it could not have been better for us financially. Shane did back-flips to make the tenancy happens under those terms.
Overall, considering the various phases of engagement with Eldron - house search, market advice, price negotiation, finding tenants, property management - I can only give this agency the highest possible marks for performance! I STRONGLY encourage anyone living outside Ireland to work with Eldron for their property needs. I want to personally thank Shane and Daniel for all their hard work.

I will certainly recommend the Eldron team to my friends and colleagues. Shane and Daniel have been incredibly helpful in helping us relocate from Singapore to Dublin and they have helped us with every step of the process. They have provided advice on properties, locations, utilities, schools, car insurance, moving companies etc and they have even picked us up at the airport - they really go above and beyond and they helped with every aspect of the move. It is a premium service delivered with great enthusiasm. I would give them 7 stars if I could!

Highly recommended to anyone buying a property in Dublin from overseas. Being based in Melbourne it would have been almost impossible to buy a property in Ireland. I found Shane and his staff very helpful and professional throughout the whole process and found Shane excellent at explaining the whole process if I had any concerns or questions along the way.

I cannot recommend Eldrons service enough. They hold your hand from start to finish. I was a solo first time buyer struggling with bidding and my search for dream starter home in Dublin, searching for over a year before I came across Shane O Connors service. On top of that I am a busy professional who values her time off. Eldron took the hassle away completely and it did not finish when contracts were signed. Shane along with Daniel have been invaluable in their guidance and assistance with renovations works of my house. I would highly recommend this service

We moved to Dublin from the US, where you have a buyers agent that does all leg work for you. We really struggled with our house search and the buying process in Dublin, until we came across Eldron Property services! Shane was recommended to us by a friend. Fantastic service, very knowledgeable and experienced when comes to house hunting. Ton of connections to estate agents and always has some off market deals on offer. Bought a house in D6 a couple of months after engaging Eldron.

Excellent experience. Shane and his team go above and beyond in terms of service to their clients. Highly recommended!
Review by Hayda11 months ago
Shane works for the buyer - it’s as simple as that! As I foreign buyer, I was new to Dublin, had limited time to find the right apartment, and very little confidence in how I would negotiate a reasonable deal. So relieved to find Eldron! Shane found, booked, and took me to apartments in the few days that I had. His realtor experience kept me focused on location and investment criteria. His skilled negotiation played out exactly as expected, after I returned to Canada. And Shane continued to support us through and after closing. We are now the thrilled owners of the perfect apartment in Dublin. Eldron is an industry disruptor and Shane is a savvy entrepreneur who’s focus is fully on his clients - that’s grand!

Review by Freshwell11 months ago
I couldn’t possibly recommend Eldron Property Consultants more highly to any potential property buyers. Having Eldron on board made such a huge difference to what would have been a massively daunting and stressful process. Shane is an absolute expert in the field. He knows the market intimately and has a personal knowledge of the Real Estate process, which proved to be invaluable during the bidding process. Shane is also an absolute pleasure to deal with. Extremely friendly and approachable and always available to provide sound advice and talk through my ideas and overall thoughts. He was also willing to provide constructive criticism and honest opinions throughout the process and pinpointed a number of potential pitfalls along the way. Having Shane on hand to assist with the viewing of properties, the negotiations and the bidding that followed gave me a confidence and an advantage that I wouldn’t have had otherwise. I wouldn't go through the process again without Eldron.
Review by Moonbeam Ybanez1 year ago
We would have been lost without Shane and his very experienced team. They knew the true value of property, and guided us away from bad property choices by highlighting problems we hadn’t even thought of. They took away the uncertainty and worry that comes with such a large investment.
We were so impressed we wouldn’t attempt to buy another property without their input.
It’s a professional service you should not be without.

They know their stuff and kept us update with everything and were always available to talk to if we had any issues.

Difficult Process made Simple
Hiring Eldron made finding our house a breeze. What is typically considered a stressful and demoralizing process was very simple with the team at Eldron. They found great options for us and we were quickly able to make our decision. They supported us through the whole buying process and even beyond. Couldn't recommend them more highly.
Review by Sarimah1 year ago
Shane is an outstandingly helpful honest professional and astute business man. We contacted him with regard to looking for suitable accommodation for our daughter, who wanted to find accommodation in Dublin.
His response was immediate, helpful, intelligent, friendly, reassuring and reliable.
It’s refreshing to see such authentic energy and professionalism. We will be using his company again in the future without doubt.
Shane also helped us to purchase our gem of a house two years ago in the Dublin area.
Recommendation could not be higher.
Thank you Shane and all the team.

Review by Bafford Scarpa1 year ago
Being based in Sydney Australia the prospect of buying into the Irish market was challenging but something my wife and I really wanted to achieve. Shane from Eldron Property was recommended to us by 3 separate sources all independently so we decided to reach out despite not having an intention of engaging a buyers agent. This turned out to be a great decision and in hindsight is the only reason we managed to successfully buy a property in April '18. Navigating the loan conditions set out by the banks for an overseas 'buy to let' purchase were beyond frustrating, but Shane assisted proactively on every step. He supported us by finding properties that fitted the criteria, providing detailed videos of his inspections of each property, arranging valuations, building inspections, rental income and yield expectations from approved valuers. When the time came and we finally decided on the property and confirmed the loan approval, Shane negotiated hard and secured a E5000 discount from the owner/agent despite it being in a hot Dublin 4 property market. Post purchase Shane has project managed all renovations, and has recently secured tenants and will property manage the house on our behalf at a 6% rental yield.
Would I recommend Shane and Eldron property? Absolutely! In fact if you are an Irish ex-pat looking to buy back home I'm not sure you could successfully achieve your goal without Eldron on your side. Best money we ever spent.
Review by Pheeli1 year ago
When I decided to move from Singapore to Dublin with my young family, having never really been to Dublin before the prospect of buying a house was a daunting one!
After a month or so of making little progress, we were recommended to reach out to Shane and I am very glad we did! Even before we arrived, Shane got us thinking about what we wanted, but also started to manage our expectations in what is a very competitive market.
Once we arrived in Dublin we needed to move quickly and once again, without Shane this would not have been possible. Shane quickly showed us around Dublin and educated us further on the market, but he also made sure we weren't wasting time getting lost in the search.
We arrived in Dublin at the beginning of March and we were delighted to move into our house on the 1st June....much quicker than we thought possible! Shane helped us get through each step of the process as quickly as possible. He saved us money during the negotiation and also amazingly managed to renovated our house in two weeks so we could move into what felt like a new house!!
Thanks again Shane and I would be happy to recommend to anyone....in fact I already have been and will continue to!
Review by Leckword1 year ago
I was wearing out the leather in my shoes from viewing different apartments and speaking with different agents also I kept losing in the bidding process.
I was frustrated at the time but had a fantastic experience meeting Eldron and I was really sold after a strategic conversation meeting the Managing Director Shane O Connor for Lunch.
The knowledge this company has on the market, where you get value, where is up and coming and what is best for you the buyer is worth it.
Cannot recommend enough and if you are sick of not getting the apartment you want at the right price and it's costing you a lot of your time give this company a call.
5 out of 5
Review by Gennavieve1 year ago
Know how much you can afford to pay for a house, and Shane will help you win the bid on your chosen house.
Take professional advice, not your friendly neighbor & family that can tell you from their experience of buying a house 5 or 10 years ago.
