Estate agent goes back to his roots

Sharman Quinney in Yaxley is delighted to welcome Property Valuer Brendan O’hanlon back to the branch after 14 years away.

Having started his estate agency career in the village, Brendan has worked at a number of Sharman Quinney branches in and around Peterborough since 1999. He is thrilled to return to Yaxley and looking forward to working with local home buyers and sellers, some of which he anticipates may remember him from when he previously worked at the branch.

“It’s great to be back in Yaxley where I first started working for Sharman Quinney almost 20 years ago,” says Brendan. “There have been a few changes to the village since I was last here, such as the development of Ferndale, so I am looking forward to reacquainting myself with the area and hopefully seeing some familiar faces of home owners I have previously worked with.”

Since his first role in Sharman Quinney’s Yaxley office, Brendan has remained within the company but moved between branches. He has spent time at Spalding, Oundle and Peterborough, as well as playing a key role in opening its branch in Hampton.

“I have gained a lot of experience through working at various branches and in different local housing markets,” says Brendan. “I plan to use this now I am back in Yaxley to help local home owners get the most out of their properties.

“Now is a great time to sell and we are seeing increasing numbers of buyers registering an interest in purchasing a home,” Brendan continues. “Greater mortgage availability and schemes like Help to Buy have brought confidence to the market so I would urge anyone who has been thinking of selling to get in touch to see if we could sell your home.”
