Lorna Gallagher and Tony Weston have made their own wise move from rival estate agencies to run their own business.Their families have been close for many years – their children have grown up together – and, between them, Lorna, who is managing director of Property Wise, and Tony, who is sales and marketing director, have 15 years’ experience in the trade.
Lorna holds the National Federation of Property Professionals accreditation, the highest vocational qualification available. She has worked on the Island in sales and residential lettings in a managerial position. Previously, she worked in trust and company formation and puts her knowledge of the finance industry to good use in her present role.
Tony has held senior positions in sales, marketing and advertising throughout his career. He has a wide knowledge of the Island and the industry and has built up tremendous client relationships.
Lorna said: ‘Our clients will benefit from our knowledge and experience.We go the extra mile because we want to, not because we feel we have to, and we pride ourselves on transparency, honesty and clarity in everything we do. As a result, we earn our clients’ trust, turning transactions into valuable long-term relationships.’
Property Wise is licensed by the Office of Fair Trading and is a member of The Property Ombudsman for sales and lettings and boasts an eye catching logo and a userfriendly website – www.propertywise.co.im – designed to facilitate a comfortable one-to-one experience.
Although most of the company’s business will be online, Property Wise has invested in professional, welcoming offices in the Village Walk, Onchan, where clients are encouraged to take advantage of extensive and free parking to visit the team.
