”It is without hesitation that I write of the first class service received from Mason Estates
Phibsboro namely from Ms Fiona McGowan. My first transaction with Mason Estates was the purchase of a
property on Beneavin Road Glasnevin in 2004. Because of the service I had received with this
transaction, fo ur years later when I decided to sell this property, I engaged Ms Fiona McGowan of Mason
Estates to be the agent for the sale of same property.
In 2017, I was heavily involved in the preparation of my great grand-parentâ€™s home on Townsend St which was being placed for sale. I met with the solicitor dealing with the sale and the executor of the estate and strongly recommended Mason Estates. The executor was also aware of the good reputation of Mason Estates, and subsequently placed the property in the capable hands of Mr Sean Mason of Mason Estates Dundrum. This transaction again, was carried out in a very satisfactory manner.
In January 2019, when I wished to sell my existing property and purchase a new property, I was happy again to place my property on Heath Square Finglas with Ms Fiona McGowan of Mason Estates Phibsboro. Fortunately for me, at the same time, Fiona was facilitating the sale of a property which I was interested in and which I subsequently purchased. Dealing with Fiona for both my sale and my purchase helped to make the process as seamless as possible for me and I am very grateful for same.
May 2019 my siblings placed our family home in Finglas for sale in the capable hands of Ms Fiona McGowan. This was an upsetting time for each of us but Fiona ensured the process ran smoothly and brought the transaction to a satisfactory conclusion.
From my experience, dealing with Fiona and Mason Estates, I enjoyed what I could call the full package i.e. professionalism, integrity, efficiency, value, dependability, and the list goes on. I think my actions speak louder than any words can and if you are reading this and in the market for the purchase or sale of a property I hope my words above would sway you to the path that leads to HOME.”

”I rented a property through Mason Estates from 2010 â€“ 2012 and was extremely impressed with the
They were extremely helpful and professional to me as the tenant but equally served the needs and
interests of the landlord impeccably.
There were regular inspections of the property on behalf of the landlord and repairs were carried out
I was so impressed with the service that they gave to both landlord and tenant, that I later engaged
them when I rented out my own apartment.
They had full responsibility for the apartment and it provided immense peace of mind to me as a
They consulted me promptly and professionally whenever they needed to, but routine tasks were taken care
of by them.
I received a monthly statement of my account without exception and permission was sought each time any
repairs had to be carried out.
I engaged Mason Estates as the letting agent from 2012 until 2018 when I sold the property, also
utilising their services for the sale.
I could not speak more highly of their service and would not hesitate to recommend them to any
prospective tenant, landlord or buyer as I have been through all three areas with them.”
”I recently had the pleasure of dealing with Mason Estates for the sale of a family home, my main
contact being Fiona,
and can categorically say that it was a most pleasant experience. Having dealt with the sale of
I would have no hesitation in recommending Mason Estates as the one that made the sale seamless from
beginning to end.
Every detail was dealt with so professionally and the communication was second to none, I never once
felt the frustration
of not being able to contact somebody and all queries were dealt with most pleasantly and efficiently.
I would have no hesitation in highly recommending Mason Estates in the future.”

”"We found Mason Estates to be very helpful while selling our house.
They gave us a realistic appraisal of the house value and suggested what we might do to prepare the
house for sale.
They were polite to us (and to each other) and professional.
They kept in touch with us during the binning process and kept us in the loop.”

”My mother's property was put on the market with the Phibsborough office of Mason Estates. Fiona
Mc Gowan carried out the initial valuation and led the sale. Siobhan Foley continued the communication
when required. From the outset I found the experience positive, trustworthy, and professional. The
process was explained clearly. I was kept informed of any interest or bids in a timely manner. The
communication was clear and regular and the advice was accurate. I felt that Fiona was very experienced
in her role and had good knowledge of the property market. I found all the office staff to be friendly
and efficient. I would recommend Mason Estate Agents based on my experience, and the Phibsborough branch

”Our family recently brought a Dublin center city apartment to the market for sale. We had some
discussion within the family as to the best way forward with some of the view that we did not need an
agent and should manage the sale process ourselves. We ultimately decided however to employ an agent and
set out our criteria for selection and engagement. The criteria we set were:”
1. Good familiarity with the market
2. Realistic expectation on likely sale price
3. Realistic time scale on sale process
4. Clear and reasonable fee structure
5. Ability to deliver.
”We selected three agents based on current activity and track record of sales in our area. The first agent we met was Ms. Siobhan Foley who is a Director of Mason Estates in Phibsboro. She clearly had a very good knowledge and understanding of the local market. She gave her view on likely selling price and likely timescale to achieve a sale. She put forward a very clear fee structure based on a % of sale and a fixed up-front fee for extras. We were impressed with Siobhan and liked her straight forward approach and agreed to engage her on the spot without any further contact with the other two selected agents.”
”The selection of Masons was a good one. They achieved a sale price slightly above the prediction and achieved a sale within the predicted time scale. The fees were as agreed. Siobhan recommended individual viewings rather than an open viewing process. While she herself conducted most of the viewings, during a period on leave the viewings were seamlessly undertaken by her colleagues. The office staff in Siobhanâ€™s absence dealt with all contacts efficiently. We had one minor issue with the proposed purchaser prior to sale closing which Siobhan resolved efficiently and professionally.”
”Overall, we were extremely happy with the service offered by Mason Estates and would have no hesitation in recommending them. They were excellent! ”
”Ive dealt with Mason Estates twice in the last three years, firstly with Maria (Dundrum Office)
and this time around with Jason (Terenure Office).”
”I found him to be extremely professional, very informative of even the smallest of updates and he always has his clients best interest at heart. There is no nonsense with Jason unlike other estate agents I have come across.”
”I would highly recommend Mason Estates and have done since first coming into contact with them three years ago. Keep up the good work you two.”
(Vendor of Beechfield Court)
”I chose Mason Estates to sell my apartment and recommend them highly.”
”The service provided by Siobhan and the team is what any seller could hope for; friendly, efficient and professional. With Siobhan's knowledge and customer focus, the process was smooth and the sale went through without any issues.”
”I very much appreciated all the work Mason Estates did for me. Thank you.”
”Before selling my family home in Dublin 6, I
considered all the household names in terms of Estate Agents but decided on Mason Estates,
having met with Sean Mason. I could not be happier that I did so. Sean is vastly
experienced and professional with a great Team behind him and, from the very outset, took a
genuine personal interest in helping me through what could otherwise have been a very
difficult process. His insights and sound advice meant that I achieved more than I
hoped for in terms of a sale price. A number of unexpected circumstances
threatened to frustrate a sale along the way and another Estate Agent could well have
given up. Sean stuck to the task, expertly nudging all parties along so that I
achieved exactly what was needed (and for a fee less than I’d been quoted elsewhere!).
I have dealt with many Estate Agents over the past 20 years. What sets
Sean apart is the personal pride he takes in helping people achieve what their particular
circumstances require. I was never just another sale. That attitude, together with his
intimate knowledge of the property market, his vast contacts in the industry and his
sound judgment means that I would recommend Sean Mason and Mason Estates unreservedly and in
the highest terms."” Mark
"The team at Mason Estates are very professional, efficient, knowledgeable
and friendly. Selling you home can be very stressful and we found them to be very attentive, supportive
and reassuring through the whole process. We have no hesitation in recommending Mason
Masons provided a very professional service throughout the sale of our house. Shane dealt with difficult circumstances in a patient manner and gave us constant feedback regarding offers and progress. Our home was treated with the greatest of respect and viewing fitted around our family life. The sale price was bang on the valuation given and we were extremely happy with the outcome. We would not hesitate to recommend Shane and his team to any friends or colleagues selling on the south of the city.
Thank's you to all of you for the tea for a great outcome."

"When selling our house in Dublin, we visited several Estate Agents in the
area. We decided on Mason Estates as from the outset Shane Desmond and his team proved to be both
professional and enthusiastic in their approach. What we appreciated most about working with the
negotiators at Mason Estates was the prompt attention in scheduling viewings and the immediate feedback
they provided from prospective buyers. We were thrilled when in less than 6 weeks our property was sold
within a timeframe ad price at well beyond our expectations.
There are many Estate Agents out there but only one Amazing Mason Estates."

I was selling my apartment in Rathfarnham I contacted a number of agents to get
a valuation. When I met with Sean from Masons I trusted the valuation he gave me was the most accurate
and felt from those initial meetings that I could trust the team at Masons.
I was very happy with the service from Masons' and the way they handled every aspect of the sale. Marie, an experienced agent, conducted all the viewings and her professionalism and experience in dealing with potential buyers was second to none. She knew who the serious buyers were and followed up with them and after each viewing phoned me to kept me informed of all the offers and everything that was going on in relation to the sale.
At all times I felt Masons were working for my best interests. I never felt under pressure to accept an offer and felt that the advice at any given time was spot on for the best possible outcome. After the sale was agreed Marie kept in contact with me and the buyer to ensure a speedy close to the sale.
Choosing Masons' has restored my faith in the industry and I would highly recommend these experienced professionals to anyone wishing to sell a property."

" We recently purchased a house via Mason Estates and cannot rate our
experience highly enough. We dealt with Jason and Sean, both of whom were extremely accommodating and a
pleasure to deal with. They dealt with all the queries efficiently and were very practical. Should we
ever need the services of an estate agent in the future Mason Estates will definitely be our first
"Selling our family home was never going to be an easy task emotionally
for any of us. After 35 years it is difficult to move. From the moment we had an initial meeting with
Mason Estates we were put at ease. Their task was an arduous one as we were both selling up and in
turning buying a new property in the countryside. Masons had to dovetail both sale and purchase while
also reassure elderly parents through the process! Although it is widely known that moving house can be
near the top of the most stressful things to experience, Mason Estates were fantastic throughout the
whole process. In choosing Mason Estates we witnessed professionalism mixed with genuine kindness and
care for our family. I would not hesitate to recommend anyone to Mason Estates and wish to thank them
for their work and diligence."

" Hi Shane, I have received the valuation report, many thanks. Excellent
service and I will be recommending you to friends, I have had some mixed experiences with some real
estate agents in the past, but Mason Estates were excellent."
"Shane and the team were just what we needed selling our Dublin apartment
from Australia. Right from the start we felt we could trust Mason Estates' professionalism,
attractive listings, open house showings and following up on how the sale of our apartment was
progressing. Shane was fantastic at keeping in touch not matter the time difference, always open to
discuss strategies and we really felt he had our best interests at heart. In the end Mason Estates
helped us achieve a better than expected outcome. We have no hesitation recommending Shane and the
"Thank you to Sean and all at Mason Estates who we have dealt with and who
have been very attentive. Since returning from Canada 4 years ago we've encountered many
bureaucratic and exhausting processes but thankfully renting through Mason Estates is not on that list!
Dealing with Mason Estates has been a lovely experience. Thank you!"
"I have found Carmel and the entire team in Mason Estates to be extremely
professional and efficient in all dealings with us while they managed the rental of our apartment in
South County Dublin. I would have no hesitation in recommending them."
"We purchased a property via Mason Estates in October. We were impressed
with the way they handled the process and therefore when we went to sell our home some time later we had
no hesitation in using them. Throughout both processes the team at Mason Estates have been highly
professional to deal with and very responsive to any queries we had."
Paddy and Fiona Mahony.
"Shane, as we are now looking forward to closing the purchase on our new
home I wanted to drop you a note.
I am sure you have a lot to deal with every day with all the different processes, personalities and moving parts. I just wanted to send a quick email to say a big thanks for all your efforts over the course of our interactions and I fully understand the work that goes on behind the scenes to bring any of these transactions to a positive conclusion. Thank you for all your efforts throughout, it was much appreciated. I know you job title is estate agent, but you should also moonlight as a psychologist, counsellor, agony aunt and perhaps a mediator!
"It was a Garda who suggested I should use Mason Estates as letting agents
after a bad experience with a tenant and another agency. It was a great recommendation.
From the first meeting with them, I knew I was in good hands. Their professionalism, expertise, discretion and can-do attitude has made the letting of my property a stress-free experience. They look after every aspect from vetting tenants, to upgrading furniture and fittings, painting, and dealing with any problems that occur. They make regular inspections and send me a written report.
I have been their client for many years now and have also used their services to sell my own house and a family property. They guide you through every phase of the procedure and in both cases secured Sale Agreed within a matter of weeks.
I couldn't recommend Mason Estates highly enough. All the staff are extremely helpful and efficient, and I am particularly luckily to have Fiona McGowan from the Phibsboro office as my agent."
