Customer Testimonials

Mr & Mrs G May, Dunmurry

Ciara Crawford was the agent who dealt with the sale of our property and we found her to be extremely professional, efficient and proactive with the marketing & selling of the property. She was so reliable with giving us feedback after every viewing, both positive and negative. We never had to chase her for anything. We assumed this was the way that all agents would work, but it was only when we started to search for a property to buy that we found this was definitely not the case. Agents from other companies were much less reliable in responding to calls, emails etc. We found we were having to chase them even if we’d shown interest in the property!

We were delighted then that it was Ciara who was selling the house we went on to purchase. She contacted us as soon as she had seen it as she knew it would be perfect for us. She again carried out the negotiations in a professional and efficient manner. We were always kept informed of any news. The sale went through smoothly (except for a few minor issues on moving day, that were nothing to do with yourselves) and we are delighted with our new home.

Ciara really is a great asset to your company and we will not hesitate to recommend Simon Brien to anyone selling a property in future.


Mr & Mrs Angelone, Belfast

“We sold our home through Simon Brien late 2017. We had almost 30 viewings for which a representative of Simon Brien Residential attended each one. We were afforded the courtesy, sensitivity and professionalism during what can be a very stressful and emotional time. Not only did they sell our home but they managed to find us a new one, where we are now settled and happy. Special thanks to Ciara who was instrumental in all aspects of both sale and purchase.”


Mr & Mrs Burns, Newcastle

“The service we received from Simon Brien, and Mark Leinster in particular, was first class. Mark dealt with all our queries in an extremely professional and prompt fashion, keeping us informed at all times, and guiding us expertly through the process of selling our property. We would highly recommend both Mark and Simon Brien to anybody wishing to buy or sell property in Northern Ireland.”


Mrs Marina Campbell, Banbridge

I would like to both thank and recommend Simon Brien Residential estate agency team for selling my family home. Mark Leinster was the agent who dealt with the sale, and I found him to be very honest and upfront which I greatly appreciated.

It is a very emotional and trying time, so it greatly helped to have someone who kept me well informed and gave honest advice whom I could trust. The service provided was both efficient and highly professional with regular phone calls throughout. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone.


Anne Mallon, Belfast

I was very apprehensive about selling my home and I don’t think I would have gone through the whole process if it had not been for the support and guidance given by Simon Brien Residential Estate Agents; in particular I received excellent client care from Fionnuala Farrell throughout the whole process, and she also guided me through the purchase of my new home, which was with another estate agent. Her communication with me throughout was excellent and I was informed and advised on every development. When problems arose Fionnuala was always there to encourage and help resolve them. I received a professional service but with a caring approach and thanks to Fionnuala and the staff at Simon Brien Residential. I am now happy in my new home.


Mr Quin, Belfast

Simon Brien Residential have sold two houses for me in recent years. The first, a South Down property, was priced personally by Simon who took a realistic view of its market potential. It sold quickly. The second property, in North Antrim, had a narrower market appeal and took longer to move. To add to our frustration an accepted offer was aborted and many months passed. Mark Leinster never gave up, and his persistence eventually paid off.

In two very different circumstances the Simon Brien team delivered superbly.


Mr & Mrs Stewart, Belfast

We have bought and sold a few properties in the past few years and wouldn’t want to work with anyone but Laura-Ann and the team at Simon Brien Residential. We found Laura-Ann professional, friendly and enthusiastic and consistently went above and beyond what we asked her, and was always available to answer any questions we had throughout the process. Laura-Ann has unparalleled, invaluable knowledge of properties in the East Belfast area and from the onset we got valuable insight into what buyers were looking for in order for us to get the maximum value for our house. The whole team in the East Belfast office were very attentive and guided us through the entire process. We got clear and effective feedback immediately after viewings, and we felt very reassured we were in safe hands.

Overall, we would thoroughly recommend Simon Brien Residential in every respect, working with Laura-Ann in East Belfast and also Mark Leinster in South Belfast, as they have always been available to offer advice and guidance throughout the whole process from valuation to completions. We have always been impressed with their prompt and efficient communication and they have never failed to get the deal done without the usual fuss and hassle.
