What service does the business provide?
We are a newly opened auctioneering company in Carlow town. We provide the following services; residential and commercial property sales, property rentals including property management, valuations and consultancy. We cover Carlow and bordering counties. We also provide an informative and interactive social media platform where buyers, sellers and renters can engage with us and get free professional advice.
How many employees are there?
Currently just the two of us, both are directors of the company but we hope to expand and employ staff in the near future.
How did the business start?
The business started because both of us were working for different auctioneering companies in Carlow town. When Covid came we were both separately reassessing our lives and figuring out where we wanted to be in 5 years’ time. It came to light that we both wanted the same thing and so Your Move Properties was formed! After three months of background work, we found the perfect location for our office on Dublin Street which is known as the business district of Carlow town. Our branding and ideas came to fruition in December 2020.
How have things changed as a result of COVID?
Your Move Properties opened in December 2020. Because of Covid, we weren’t able to carry out the marketing campaign or open our door to the public the way we would have liked to. Because of the restrictions we have had to rely on social media and word of mouth. We have had a very positive response and we hope that this will be the foundation for our business to thrive when we are out of lockdown.
What do you have planned for the business in the future?
We want to continue to grow our business and our brand. We have a combined 20 years industry experience however Your Move Properties is a new company so we want to show everyone that while we might be competing with well known nationwide brands we can offer you the same, if not a more personal experience with us. We have big things lined up for Your Move Properties so watch this space!
Anything else we should know?
We are the first agents in Carlow to be interactive on our social media and have a strong online presence, we are also two females in a male-dominated industry which we feel can be a challenge but it is a challenge we are willing to take on and show people who feel that setting up a new business can be intimidating around other long-standing companies in the same field but it is definitely a risk worth taking.
Location: Unit 3, 12 Dublin Street, Carlow, R93 WPX7
