Since opening our and doors in Delgany in 2009 Forkin Estates has established itself as the go to people for Lettings, Sales and Commercial in the North County Wicklow and South County Dublin. We focus on delivering a fresh approach catered on our clients’ needs. It is no wonder that Forkin Estates is one of the fastest growing agencies in the commercial and residential property sectors.
In April 2012 we announced the acquisition of all contracts of Costello Property Services in Wicklow Town and proudly opened the doors to our second branch on Main Street Wicklow Town.
Directors Matt Forkin and Karl Tracey view this as part of a strategic plan for Wicklow county, “Although our Delgany branch has gained an excellent foot-hold in the North Wicklow/South Dublin area we felt it was important to establish a presence in Wicklow Town to expand in the county and have offices closer to our strong Customer base in South Wicklow and beyond”.
Matt Forkin and Karl Tracey have vast experience across all sectors both in the Irish property industry and abroad. Having worked through the incredible highs and lows of the Irish property market we realised that a new approach was needed to meet our clients’ ever changing needs. Our clients are treated individually and professionally with the emphasis on excellent customer service tailored around our clients’ requirements.
With the addition of the Wicklow office we have retained Mr. Leslie T. Bradshaw. Mr. Bradshaw needs little introduction. With over 35 years active experience in the Auctioneering business, Leslie is a former president of the I.P.A.V., a former member of the I.A.V.I. and former Chairman of the National Property Network the forerunner of Property Partners. Leslie is also a Commissioner for Oaths, Peace Commissioner and Valuer. He is available to sign any document needed and valuations for current market value, probate, capital acquisitions tax, etc. His vast experience of the property industry and huge local knowledge combine perfectly with the enthusiasm and energy of Matt and Karl to create a formidable team!
So whether you are buying, selling or renting your property why not contact our Wicklow or Delgany office where one of our dedicated and professional Sales / Letting team will give you free appraisal with no obligation. We are sure you will not be disappointed.
CLARKE AUCTIONEERS LIMITED
The Clarke family have been selling property in Wicklow for almost a century. The original company was known as Clarke Byrne and Co which was set up in the early 1900’s. This company developed into Clarke Delahunt which operated out of Fitzwilliam Square in Wicklow and was run by William Clarke & Harry Delahunt. Clarke Delahunt became the biggest Auctioneering firm in the county with Livestock marts in Aughrim, Roundwood and Ashford. William Clarke’s son Billy became a director of the company in the mid-1960s.
In 1980 Billy Clarke set up Clarke Auctioneers in Ashford, where it has been a thriving practice ever since. Billy’s core values of integrity and professionalism remain an integral part of a business now run by his sons Brian & Stephen.
