Paul Tobin Estates

What people say about us

I had a house to sell which needed a lot of work. I neither had the time or energy for the job, I heard of Paul Tobin from a colleague who was extremely happy with his service. A few days after he visited the property he got in touch with a current value and a refurbishment plan. He was professional and knowledgeable and knew the market very well, I also got to see before and after shots of his previous work and had the confidence in him to take on the project from start to finish. From design stage, right through to completion he took care of everything and updated me regularly making sure I was informed and happy at each stage. One of the best savings was a kitchen he bought on Done Deal for €800, I had been previously looking at a kitchen cost of €5,000. The market at the time was sluggish and I was worried about attracting a buyer but Paul was confident that with this type of fit out and It would sell fast and for a high price. I was hoping the refurbishment would have taken less time but when we went to market he sold it in a few weeks, well worth the investment. The best description of the overall service was that it was tailored to suit my requirements’ and would not hesitate in recommending Paul Tobin Estate Agents.

I've been renting for years and have encountered many agents, good and bad, in that time. Paul Tobin Estates is, undoubtedly, the best agent I've dealt with . He and his staff are highly efficient and very friendly.

“I asked Paul Tobin Estates to advise on revamping and letting a house in Dublin 9 in July. Paul called to the house and submitted a room by room report, effectively an interior design proposal. He visited the house on numerous occasions to ensure that work was completed to the highest standards. He personally met the painting contractor, flooring contractor, recommended a cleaning company and advised on how to apply all the finishing touches. The refurbishment was completed on time and on budget. He then secured an excellent tenant paying 40% more than the rent we had hoped to achieve. I would highly recommend Paul Tobin Estates if you are considering refurbishing and letting or selling a house.”

Ian & I just wanted to thank you so much for all your advice, hard work and determination in selling our house. Your professionalism shone through in your 360-degree approach from “staging” suggestions to showing the house and managing the negotiations around the selling. When the waters got choppy, you sailed in and smoothed out any issues. I’ve been recommending you to anyone who will listen. Many thanks again.

We hired Paul Tobin to sell a house that had been let for many years. As we do not live in Dublin we were attracted by his turnkey service. Our instructions were that he was to handle absolutely everything so we just handed over the cheque. True to his word Paul handled everything: from the notice to the tenants, to the refurbishment of the house, to the sourcing of a solicitor, surveyor and the handling of utilities. He is a stickler for detail and his refurbishment of the house was not only cost effective but excellent… and we did not have to lift a finger. He really showed the property off to its best advantage. Paul was professional, competent and practical in his approach. Above all he is a gentleman and a pleasure to deal with. Paul sold the house for a good price in a stagnant market. We would have no hesitation in recommending him. He made, what is usually a stressful process, seamless and hassle free.

I had been trying to sell my house for several months during a very difficult economic period and was beginning to feel that we were wasting our time. Eventually we decided to ask Paul Tobin to sell our house as I knew he had a very good reputation. Paul took over the sale on 5th April and we received a deposit from the buyer on 12th May! Phenomenal results! Paul's professionalism and positivity is amazing and infectious. He lifted our spirits immediately. Paul took some amazing photos which definitely helped with viewings and he followed up with each and every potential buyer which eliminated any time-wasters. Paul was a total pleasure to deal with at all times and I would not hesitate to recommend Paul to anyone who needs the services of an EXCELLENT estate agent. Thank you so much Paul for all your help during an extremely stressful time.

Approximately 5 years ago I engaged Paul Tobin to rent out my apartment. The whole process was seamless and hassle-free and the same tenants are still renting the property to this day. Paul was completely professional and proactive in vetting potential tenants, checking references, securing contracts, registering with the PRTB and dealing subsequently with the tenants chosen. I was impressed that he rejected several initial candidates, instead choosing to wait longer until he felt a suitable tenant was available. I would have no hesitation in recommending Paul's services to anybody in a similar situation.

Dear Paul, Thank you for informing us about no. 47. Whilst we were disappointed to miss out, we were very impressed by your professionalism and clarity of communication. It's a refreshing difference to some of the other agents out there.

We are a Residential Construction Company operating over the last 10 years. We are currently constructing houses at our Development at Weston Park, Oldtown, Co. Dublin (awarded “New Home of the Month” by Irish Property Buyer Magazine, winner “Homes of Tomorrow” by SEI). We are very proud of this Development and all professionals associated with our Project. We utilised the services of an alternative estate agency to launch our Development during the first years of the Development. We subsequently appointed Mr Paul Tobin to market and sell our above mentioned Development. We have found Mr Tobin to be an exemplary professional who has proven to be imaginative in his marketing approach, diligent, well-liked by prospective customers and more importantly in these difficult times - tenacious. We would have no hesitation in highly recommending Paul Tobin as an estate agent for the marketing and sale of residential housing property.
